5.0 out of 5 stars Nice bicycle., 12 Dec 2014

Bought for my better half. A nice solidly made bicycle. What more can I say?

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent classic VdGG album spoiled slightly by additional padding., 12 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pawn Hearts (Audio CD)
At the time of writing, I am still awaiting the arrival of the CD, but have access to Amazon's music streaming service, post-purchase.
This would get 5 stars if the original album version of the three excellent tracks (Lemmings, Man-Erg and A Plague Of Lighthouse Keepers) were only on this - as was the original vinyl version. It is a shame that much experimental previously unpublished 'padding' was added - it has not added value, quite the contrary in my opinion. With the exception of the added 'Theme One' (was included on original USA release), the rest of the additional material could have been left off and the album (truer to the original) would be better. Still very good by virtue of the excellent original tracks.


Black 11" Straight Gas Lift for an Office Chair
Black 11" Straight Gas Lift for an Office Chair
Offered by BiMi
Price: £15.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Mistakenly ordered the wrong one, but an excellent product., 12 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product is excellent and cannot fault it. However I ordered the wrong 11" one by mistake, which is too high for my IKEA 'Markus' office chair (comes with a low-set 8" lift which started to play-up because I operated at full height from new). I can just about get away with this 11" unit when set to lowest.

This product fits much higher in the castor frame than the original with nothing protruding below the frame. If it sat as low as the IKEA original with about 3" visible under the frame it would be perfect. Hence, this is why I ordered the 11" model - and this is something which needs to be considered when ordering.

I have ordered the 9" version as this will suit me better and look forward to arrival.


Plumb-Pak Elan Small Lever Tap Tops
Plumb-Pak Elan Small Lever Tap Tops
Price: £12.98

1.0 out of 5 stars Two incomplete items sent - both returned. Very disappointed., 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose these as they are (supposedly) supplied with bushes to enable use on bath taps (see description: label on box says the same), for which I had bought these. The 3/4 - 1/2 enclosed bushes would do fine.

First package arrived with hot and cold tap heads and valves - all very nicely made. But nothing else. The labelling on the box showed missing items necessary for use with bath taps. Fair enough. Sent back for replacement.

Amazon delivered replacements very quickly. However, these too were missing the same essential bushes to enable use with bath taps, again rendering them useless as replacements.

I have absolutely no complaint with Amazon or the build quality of the product - what there was of it. The two examples I received are incomplete, hence I can only regrettably give one star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 16 Mar 2014

This review is from: Backbox 1g 10mm Spacer
Ideal for adding extra space behind the switch if the 16mm plaster-depth box isn't enough. An easy, fast fix. Good product.


Energizer Rechargeable Precision AA 2400mAh Batteries - Pack of 4
Energizer Rechargeable Precision AA 2400mAh Batteries - Pack of 4
Price: £10.47

5.0 out of 5 stars Rechargeable batteries, and?.., 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So, these are rechargeable batteries. However, I have found that the Energizer batteries do seem that bit better than most others - only Duracell being on par.

Might cost a little more, but will last longer between charges and overall life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Family., 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Very Best Of Family (Audio CD)
Roger Chapman's vocals are an acquired taste: you'll either like or not. One thing for sure, you are unlikely to forget Family's songs.

I was aware of "In My Own Time" (a 1971 hit), "The Weaver's Answer" and "Burlesque". This CD collection offers a complete introduction to this short-lived, quirky and pioneering band. Glad I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting a long time for this., 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Recordings (Audio CD)
The Porcupine Tree out takes and those tracks that didn't make it onto the CDs of the day. Arguably (IMHO) one of PT's best ever tracks and a live gig favourite, "Buying New Soul" is only available on this CD set in addition to the full version of "Even Less". Well worth the money.

This review is from: Oh Perilous World (Audio CD)
If you are into easy listening and predictable, this is not for you. Move on.

But if the thought of chamber music meeting prog-rock is your thing, Oh Perilous World provides a marvellous journey. Numerous nods to history are encompassed within the witty lyrics. I love it.

I became aware of Rasputina via a link from a follower on Twitter. Explored on YouTube, and now buying the CDs. I thank them.


TrueCall Call Recorder Memory Card - 70 hours
TrueCall Call Recorder Memory Card - 70 hours
Offered by DST (UK) LTD Established 1999
Price: £25.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very compact and robust message collector., 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An essential add-on to the TrueCall call blocker if you wish to record conversations and/or use as an answering machine.

Only minor niggle is that the dedicated software makes this (what is no more than an ordinary SD card) somewhat pricey. Very good overall.
