Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used this product before with excellent results I would not use anything else as it gives a mirror like finish to an already polished car using Auto Glym Resin Polish. The Extra Gloss Protection seals in a deep shine that lasts for at least six months & as the car is kept in the open that is no mean feat for any polish. When it rains the rain runs off like water off a ducks back for the whole six month period giving that extra protection for your investment. I do not hesitate to give this product a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED with five stars.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently bought a x 3 pack of these bulbs to replace x 2 60w standard candle bulbs in a Bosch cooker hood. The light output from these LOHAS bulbs is amazing & far exceeds the early versions of LED's on the market the light output from which was disappointing to say the least. Another reason for buying them was because the heat from x 2 standard bulbs in an enclosed space will eventually destroy any plastic parts in the fitting. This happened in a previous cooker hood & the fitting eventually fell to pieces. These new LED's run cool so no destructive heat output. At a combined output of 12W for the x 2 compared with 120W for x 2 standard candle bulbs you can do the maths yourself. There seems to be a plethora of these bulbs on the market now but these new LOHAS LED's are a top of the range product, well made & highly recommended.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After having had several different makes of these GU10 bulbs in the past for a x 4 bulb fitting in our kitchen & been disappointed with their light output I took the plunge & bought a x 5 bulb pack on the recommendation of a friend. I am glad that I did as the light output is quite staggering as our x 4 bulb fitting that is centrally fitted on the kitchen ceiling now lights up the whole kitchen like daylight & no other auxilliary lights are necessary as they have a wide beam angle unlike the early versions. How technology has moved on since the early days of LED lighting! When you consider the combined wattage of x 4 of these is only 24W compared with the early halogen bulbs that were 40W each you can do the maths yourself. I wholeheartedly recommend these LOHAS bulbs as you will not be disappointed & I am not being paid for this review!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very useful auxiliary oven for snacks etc but you must reckon on having to replace it every 18 months or so if you use it nearly every day as we do as the grill element will burn out after prolonged use which is no doubt why this little oven does not carry a two year guarantee .The supplier does not want to know & is very unhelpful in this regard. However, consider what you will save in electricity from using your main oven & it will cover the replacement cost. We are now on our third as there is nothing else on the market like it at this price. You could buy three of these for the cost of a more well known make that carries a two year guarantee! When you consider that a replacement element would cost more to fit than the cost of a new oven then that may put it in perspective. However as we seem to live in a throwaway society these days replacement elements are NOT available. Another reviewer mentioned the fact that it is so light that it will skid across your work surface. That is easily overcome by sticking a blob of BlueTak on each of the four feet & hey presto!
If it were not for the longevity of the grill elements I would have given it five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars New standard for bathroom extractor fans., 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a brilliant fan that is whisper quiet as described. However I would suggest that the higher speed is selected on install as the lower speed would only be any use for a continuous on situation as it does not move enough air otherwise. This fan was a direct replacement for one that had been installed for many years in conjunction with a bathroom light switch & the C4S made it sound like an old tractor by comparison. Installation was very simple with just a Neutral & a Positive connection. It was not even necessary to drill new fixing holes in the wall due to a very neat arrangement of two small spikes that grip the internal vent hole by tightening two small screws after inserting the body of the fan into the vent hole. I can highly recommend the C4S as it sets the standard by which all those nasty cheaper fans should be judged.Delivery was by return so what more can you ask!

A lovely tale that I wished I had read years ago but being retired gives you time to do things that you have not had the time for before!

1.0 out of 5 stars Generic Inks for Canon, Epson etc., 24 Feb. 2015
I have had a Canon Pixma iP4600 for five years & apart from the Canon inks supplied when new have always used generic inks from The Cartridge People & latterly from Amazon themselves with never any problems whatsoever & at a fraction of the cost. Branded Canon,Epson inks etc are well known for their ripoff prices so I would suggest that before buying any new printer always check that generic inks are available for your chosen model or you will be stuck with manufacturers inks. The colour density of generic inks are virtually indistinguishable from originals & most are also chipped these days so no problems checking on ink levels & never any problems with ink jets becoming blocked as most modern printers have an automatic cleaning cycle anyway.
I would make one proviso in that if you are a serious photographer with colour photos on display in daylight for lengthy periods of time then stick to genuine inks which do not fade so much as the generic variety but for most of us that is not a problem with photos in albums etc out of the daylight. I have many photos in albums that have been printed with JetTec inks from ten years back with no fading whatsoever.
As they say:"you pays your money & you takes your choice".so do give generic inks a try as with the money you save you can afford to update your printer regularly if you so wish.

Excellent Aerial Amplifier but would recommend to always wall mount, rather than dangling on the floor, to prevent heat buildup which is the number one killer of all electronic equipment.
