Aqua Scale Stand for Infant Tub
Aqua Scale Stand for Infant Tub
Offered by SAFETOTS
Price: £29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and good quality product., 23 July 2014
A bit of a hassle to assemble but is very sturdy and does the job of being a secure stand for the aquascale bath. A bit bulky to put away, but it was designed to hold the bath up, not for aesthetics

1.0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate and misleading product description - buyers beware, 23 July 2014
This product description is inaccurate and intentionally designed to mislead. There is no such thing as cold pressed bhringaraj oil!

Bhringaraj oil is not made by pressing the oil out of the bhringaraj (eclipta alba) plant. It is made by boiling the plant or juice in coconut or sesame oil. So it is impossible to have a cold pressed oil. What would be useful for the consumer is to tell us what base oil was used and the ratio of bhringaraj juice to oil that was used to make this product. There's a site called ecliptaalba.com that is dedicated to the plant and it's benefits and nowhere is cold pressed bhringaraj oil mentioned.

If the manufacturer has gone out of their way to write a misleading description to make the product more appealing it really makes me wonder about the quality of the base oil used and the actual concentration of bhringaraj in the product.

Vax Steam Mop - S2S-1 Bare Floor Pro With Detergent
Price: £44.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Only a matter of time before it starts leaking., 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this a few months and like the other reviews have mentioned it has started leaking. Before buying it i had read other reviews saying it would leak assuming mine wouldn't be faulty. Turns out the leaking problem is more widespread than I'd thought.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for newbies, 12 Dec 2013
The book doesn't explain anything in detail in a manner newbies can understand. Instead it contains links to sites that contain more information. Previous reviews have claimed the book is expensive for the 28 pages. I agree especially since nothing is explained in depth and two of the 28 pages are dedicated to ad advertising other books the author has written.
The book recommends software and processes to cover your tracks in the dark web and again only dedicates at most a paragraph to its use without giving any further information. The section on bitcoins is a joke.
This isn't a book for novices and i've come away with the impression that the author spent a couple of hours noting down what he thought people might want to know about covering their tracks in the dark net without making any effort to explain himself or go into detail. Writing the book was an easy way to make some money for the author without putting in a lot of effort.
If you've used the dark net before and are looking for ways to cover your tracks then maybe this book might be useful. If on the other hand you're completely new to the subject and looking for information to explain how things work then save your money and read wikipedia instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable device, 17 Aug 2010
The sensor stopped working after i'd used it only once!

It stopped right in the middle of my second work out after my itouch took ages to connect/find it.

I can't tell you how irritating that was.

2.0 out of 5 stars Excel 2007 Interactive Training review, 22 Mar 2009
I bought this interactive video training to help me get familiar with Microsoft Excel's advance features and have to say i'm disappointed. The topics aren't covered in detail and the "Instructor" only performs and explains one example for each topic. Far from being advanced training, it only gives you an introduction to Excel's advanced topics.
To make matters worse there is no pause button so if there is a formula or definition displayed on the screen that you'd like to have a closer look at you can't, as a result i've ended up watching lessons several times to get a better look at items displayed on the screen for a few seconds. The instructor explains things very quickly and it may be hard to keep up if you aren't familiar with the terms he is using and forgive me if i'm wrong but isn't that the whole point of getting training? To learn terms and functions you aren't familiar with or don't even know about?
The so called exercises and tests are a joke. The interactive exercises are more or less done for you and you never even have to think about what you've just learned. Menu's are opened for you and arrows pointed to what step you need to perform next. While this may be helpful to some, I don't see how it allows me to remember and use the new knowledge i'm supposed to have gained. There are no independent Excel files for you to practise on your own either.
I think a lot more effort could have been put into the content of the tutorials and design of the navigation and interactive features.
I'm going to have to get further information about the topics covered here from another source no doubt.
