Rapesco Supaclip 40 Dispenser with 25 Clips for 40 Sheets of 80 gsm Multicoloured Ref RC4025MC
Rapesco Supaclip 40 Dispenser with 25 Clips for 40 Sheets of 80 gsm Multicoloured Ref RC4025MC
Price: £2.84

1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent clips, useless dispenser, 28 Feb 2012
The clips themselves are very good - small, neat, hold papers firmly together without marking them.
But the dispenser is useless. After clipping about 20 3-part sets together it jammed. Maybe the clips were damaged or out of spec (they were genuine Rapesco), but there is no way to clear a jam, or to remove unused or damaged clips from the dispenser. After forcing the jammed clip out, the dispenser no longer works properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quality, 4 Nov 2011
These batteries live up to their description - capacity within 5% of rating, and hold their charge.
I originally bought some to use in a Canon A590i camera, which is notoriously hard on batteries, and they work perfectly. Other hybrid batteries tried (Uniross) were useless with this camera.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money., 29 Sep 2011
This mixer was bought to replace one I broke (see later).
I have used one of these to mix bread dough for some months, and it does a very good job. If the price of this model is compared with those of larger and more widely advertised makes, it can be seen what a bargain it is.
Warning: this mixer can "walk", so don't leave it working unattended! I did - and it worked its way off the worktop on to the floor.

5.0 out of 5 stars A no-nonsense guide, 1 Mar 2011
As a beginner in bread making, I found this book very useful. It starts with a section on correcting faults - helpful to me when some of my loaves turned out more like bricks! A good straightforward guide to making a wide range of breads.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good kettle, 1 Mar 2011
First impressions: this kettle is large - about half its volume is free space above the maximum water level, and it is mainly plastic - the stainless steel is only a thin facing for the sake of appearance.
It feels well made, is easy to fill, heats up fairly quietly, has a positive cut-out when boil is reached, and pours well. The cut-off mechanism does not trip when the kettle is taken off the stand.

These boots are comfortable and easy to put on and take off. They have a separate boot-shaped inner lining, so are warm as well as waterproof.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fulfils its purpose, 30 Jan 2011
I bought this radio (to replace one failing from old age) so that I could be woken by Radio 4. It works very well, receives all my local stations OK. There is some background hiss, and the instructions are somewhat sketchy (no details of how to set the alarm!), but for the price it's brilliant value for money.

Don't hesitate to buy one of these if you have a DMC-FZ38. The battery arrived promptly, fits correctly and works well, at a bargain price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, compact storage, but poor support, 3 Aug 2010
A well designed, compact and useful device. Looks good and works well, used as an off-site backup.
The instructions supplied with the device are very brief and the LaCie web site gives little information about the Rikiki. It seems rather demanding of leads: the supplied lead is ridiculously short and the first longer one I tried caused the drive to start bleeping (the LaCie web site gave no useful help on this): eventually I found one that worked.

A well-made full set of spanners, slim for use in confined spaces, and nicely finished.
