Great value. They work well and will last for years. Swift despatch too. Thank you.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is a good book - well made and just the right size ..., 9 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a good book - well made and just the right size for the Saturday/Sunday papers. I fitted one to our previous house, which gave good service for 10+ years. We moved and I ordered this new one for our new house. The only drawback is that it is jolly difficult to access the four fixing screws. It needs a short-handled screwdriver to fit in the space between the screw head and the facing inner surface of the box. It's possible to do, but very fiddly.
However, it is now in place and I (and the newspaper delivery boy/girl) are very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Works For Me, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried all sorts of masks; none has been as effective as this. Comfortable to wear, a good shape and soft to the touch, I have found it a great help while sleeping. The Velco fastening is big enough for ease of use and does not create a hard lump while resting the head on the pillow. There is some reduction in external noise but I generally use the mask in combination with ear plugs.

Black & Decker GL5028SB 500W Reflex Auto Line Feed Strimmer

4.0 out of 5 stars It seems to work, but it's early days, 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent a long time researching strimmers. The Which? reports suggested brands and models other than this one, but it did appear in the Best Buy list. All strimmers seem to suffer from problems with line feed, and every one that I have owned in the past has failed early in its life. It was clear that I should not buy a twin feed machine, since these are guaranteed to jam. I didn't want top spend a fortune on a machine. So, the 'old faithful' B&D came out tops in the research.
I have used it only twice and it has performed well. I think that the key to these things is to follow the manufacturer's advice about cutting by small degrees, rather than trying to attack long grass and weeds in one sweep; and to avoid hard obstacles. I'll probably be proved wrong, come the spring.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing after 'The Kite Runner' and 'A Thousand Splendid Suns', 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
His first two books were brilliant, beautifully written and helped me to appreciate the lives of ordinary Afghans before the the appalling decades of war that the country has suffered. This third book seems to me to be the product of a publisher's contract that demands Hosseini produces books to order. It is too obviously contrived, with a thin plot and laboured characters. The timeline flips from past to present far too frequently and is difficult to follow (maybe that's because I read it as a Kindle - the paper version might be easier).
It was a real disappointment for me, since I was deeply moved by his first two books. However, I will buy his next one. Please take more time over it and avoid the pressures of writing for a market and over-demanding contracts!

2.0 out of 5 stars 'Tinny' overall sound, 22 Sept. 2011
The blurb suggested that these earphones have exceptional performance in the bass frequencies. That may be, but the overall sound is much more 'tinny' than I had expected. I have other in-ear types that have better sound quality. However, they stay in the ear, which is why I bought them. When you're on the last mile of a run, you're not really thinking about the finer points of musical quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Boy Loved It!, 3 July 2011
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
A gift for my grandson on his first birthday. He absolutely loved it. A great product, well-made and at a very attractive price. We considered other trikes but this has the great advantage of being easily collapsible so it doesn't take up more precious space in the house and it is easy to take in the car. I'd recommend it to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazed at its capability, 9 Nov. 2010
Although I have yet to make use of every facility that this program offers, I am amazed at its capability. It has, most certainly, improved my productivity and helped to reduce the overhead costs of my small business. I need to spend more time to fine tune recognition of some of my words but the program makes very few mistakes, and most of these are quite logical, for example 'to', 'too', '2', 'two' are difficult to differentiate when speaking. I am sure that there is a way to do this!

I would recommend this product without hesitation and I have already done so to many of my colleagues. I find that the Home Edition is more than adequate for my needs as a freelance writer, editor and book publisher. The Professional Edition might be necessary for a larger business.

Some of the reviews that I studied before purchasing the product were critical of the headset and microphone that come boxed with the software. I actually purchased a separate stand-alone microphone, having seen that others had done so. However I have been using the Dragon headset and it works perfectly well for me, and it seems to be sufficiently robust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Hub - Big Capacity, 27 July 2010
It's unsual, I think, to find a 13-port hub, but with so many peripherals I was stacking up a succession of 4-port hubs with resulting cable confusion. I doubted that this would work as well as it does. But it does, with no overheating, instant response and sockets everywhere, with plenty to spare. I use a good quality USB cable to connect the hub to my PC or laptop. Transfer speeds seem to be excellent. A great product, well worth the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Won't fit Panasonic TZ6 Camera, 24 Mar. 2010
I'm a fan of Lowepro kit and have several cases/pouches. When I bought a Panasonic TZ6 from Amazon, I aslo bought the small bundle advertised with the product - a case, a card reader and a card. The camera won't fit into the case! The card reader arrived quickly but the card took ages.

Not a good result for Amazon this time but the camera is great and because the case was pretty cheap I didn't ask for a refund. But beware - if you have a TZ6 or TZ7, it won't go into this case!
