4.0 out of 5 stars Effective storage, 15 Nov 2013

A bit pricey but a robust storage system. Easy to set up and stacks in a stable column. Will probably buy again.The handle area does not quite fit snugly but it is acceptable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all, 15 Nov 2013

A good price and have proven quite robust. They do not look that robust but they have worn well and are very comfortable. Seem to eat laces though. For the money this a good buy for normal walking across heaths and the like.

Hard to judge as we have not caught or seen another mouse. They are easy to set up but do not look that powerful. A good price though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive but prone to split, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have been put on a new food recycling process and the brown bin came with some sample bags. I bought these to replace the bags used up. Despite having exactly the same specifications this product is prone to split when fitting into the brown bin. They are a good price but i may look for something slightly more robust when these run out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive and functional, 15 Nov 2013

It is a cheap plasticky fitting and i used it to replace one exactly the same in garage. It is exactly what it seems so one cannot really say anything negative. The price says it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice product, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product is excellent. Solid and nicely finished. Unfortunately it was the wrong type of fitting. No one it appears makes the type that sit horizontal to the window anymore. I have very old style windows as it is a listed building. It was hard to judge from the website what type of fitting it was but that is a common problem. Anvil make nice products if the fitting style works.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 7 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works. I do not know how long it will last and whether it will give us problems going forward but it works for now. It is easy to install providing you do not look at the instructions and just look at the diagram carefully. The one-input unit plugs into your router and the three-input unit into the room you want to extend your wireless coverage into. You need the sec: code from the back of the second unit so write it down. Plug it in, press all the buttons and then enter the sec: code into the devolo network when asked by your computer. Do not forget to load your software. The worst thing about it is the instructions. They are truly counterproductive. Never come across anything so useless. I get the impression our downloads speeds have been reduced after installation but i cannot be sure. Also be aware that the two plugs must be connected by output sockets on the same electricity circuit. Sounds obvious but some houses have two circuits. We do.


The Dyslexic Advantage: Unlocking the Hidden Potential of the Dyslexic Brain
The Dyslexic Advantage: Unlocking the Hidden Potential of the Dyslexic Brain

4.0 out of 5 stars Differently wired, 2 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book's subject is how individual brains are differently wired and the wiring of the brain of someone with symptoms of dyslexia has a specific wiring. The education system (in the west at least) establishes developmental norms that are challenging for Dyslexic-wired brains. However, such brains have the capacity to excel in other ways which can often be an advantage, especially later in life and in certain activities. The book is a must read for anyone that has dyslexia or dyslexic children or indeed any learning difficulties even if undiagnosed at the time. It is, unfortunately, poorly written and very repetitive. It is an annoying style that obviously passes for more 'accessible' in the mind of the authors and is typical of self help books. I would have preferred a little more research evidence. It is evidently written for an american audience. Nevertheless, it contains much interesting and useful material and some guidance on how to manage development for a dyslexic. It also describes the dyslexic advantage, albeit clumsily, and that can be be quite inspirational for any dyslexic. A must, if stodgy, read if you have an interest in this subject.


Veho VFS-002 Slide & Negative Scanner for 35mm & 110 Instamatic Negatives
Veho VFS-002 Slide & Negative Scanner for 35mm & 110 Instamatic Negatives
Price: 35.27

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 13 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This scanner is excellent value for money. It is simple to use and gives very acceptable quality. I tried with black and white negatives, colour negatives and colour slides. Most were old and scratched and dusty owing to poor storage. Very happy with results. No doubt i can get a better quality film scanner and if i need one i will. If you just want to bring some negatives and slides back to life this is a very simple and inexpensive place to start. It does what it says on the box. A good brush is a wise investment although the little spatula included is not so bad until it gets grubby.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not read/believe reviews, 13 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All is Song (Hardcover)
I bought this book having read a review in the Evening Standard. If a book grips me i never put it down until it is finished. I still have not finished this one and i have had it for a month. I will finish it to see how (if) it ends but i cannot read more than a few pages a week. It is that badly written. This is a boring as well as badly written book. It was meant to allude to the relationship between Plato and Socrates. It has some poor attempts at pop philosophy. The author has a degree in Philosophy. I can see why she did not pursue it as a career but writing was also a bad idea. Neither the plot nor the characters have any depth. Development is tedious. I write the review now in case i give up and never finish it. A great disappointment.
