4.0 out of 5 stars I like these types of lights., 14 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Dead handy that the Vine program occasionally supplies these replacement LED lights! I have one room that has 12 of these lights in them and slowly but surely, they're getting replaced...cheers Amazon!

Anyway, there really isn't much to say about these LED lights. I have liked every one and the story is the same here too. They light quickly, produce a lovely clear light and they look cool when not lit. I like the style of the lights as they appear in the housing.

This particular light seems to have a very slightly larger housing and whilst it fitted the housing OK, it wasn't as easy as other lights.

1.0 out of 5 stars Look elsewhere., 14 Aug 2014
Engineered badly and when raised to the supplier, they were good at reimbursing BUT and that's a deliberate capital but, at the time I bought the product the supplier didn't recognise the manufacturing fault = the screw threads were in entirely the wrong place rendering the product useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb product, 14 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Relatively small iron but it packs a punch when providing levels of steam a sauna aspires to produce. And whilst the delivery of the steam is steady and lots of, the reservoir doesn't deplete as rapidly as one would expect.

The iron combines some form of fabric sensor that apparently reduces the risk of burning whatever you're trying to iron. And with a part semi-circle handle. the iron is pleasantly shaped to hold for long periods of ironing time and easy as you could wish to use.

Our ironing style is to use steam all the time and even the most heavily creased fabric will yield in the face of such steam power.

In summary, depending on your ironing needs I can't see a downside to using this iron unless you have an issue with the quantity of steam produced. If you're used to an all contained standard iron, this iron will surprise and hopefully in a good way. If I were in the market for an iron and had the funds to support this amount, I'd have no hesitation in buying this iron.


Rapesco Stapler, Heavy Duty Stapler Zero-01

4.0 out of 5 stars If I had a hammer!, 17 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If I had a hammer.or more to the point, if I didn't have a hammer I'd turn to this stapler.

This thing is built to last longer than me. In year to come, when the Earth evolves into a paperless environment- yeah right - this stapler will be found propping up a house somewhere or a collection of them being the support structure of a bridge.

Oh and it staples stuff together rather well too.

Why did I choose this one? Lost our other one, the regular sized one. I think this may be shorthand for one of my kids took it to Uni.

In summary - built like a tank. Get burgled? Chuck this at the burgler, I'm sure you can't be 'done' for assault with a stapler.


BlueRigger High Speed Micro HDMI to HDMI cable with Ethernet
BlueRigger High Speed Micro HDMI to HDMI cable with Ethernet
Offered by BlueRigger LLC
Price: £10.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read somewhere that when buying HDMI cables, spending oodles of cash wasn't necessary and I'd agree. Bought this cable to connect my wife's Nexus 10 tablet to the tv. For an IT dullard like me plug and play gets many-a-browney-point and here this BlueRigger gets lots. Plugged in and it just worked. No faffing about, plug in and go....perfect.

Oh and pic quality - brilliant.

I like it but why it's 2x or 3x more expensive than other step up rings beats me. Machined well and does what it says so no complaints.

Build quality good but like all step up rings, the filter you screw on will defo get stuck. They're a bugger to get off but I don't know how to stop it. My filters come off, eventually.

In summary - so far so good and so no hesitation in buying again if I had too.

For £16 you can't beat it. Had ours for a couple of months and it's on often and even on setting one it shifts some air let me tell you.

In summary - a good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Got, like all the others we have., 17 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've really come to like LED lights and buy them whenever the current lamps die. Overall I love their clean bright white colour and the immediate start rather than the take time to brighten that fluorescent bulbs take.

In short, I found this bulb like any other that I've bought, easy to install and as yet, have found the build quality on a par with each of them. If anything I'd say be mindful that some manufacturers charge significantly more for their bulbs than others...right now I don't know why. We've tried various bulbs at a variety of price points and unless we're storing a problem for another time, they all seems to perform the same.

In short, we like them (wife and I). Can I differentiate them from others? Other than by price - no.
