2 Seater Sofa Protector Cream 46" x 70.5" Water Resistant Quilted
2 Seater Sofa Protector Cream 46" x 70.5" Water Resistant Quilted

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product even for red wine spillage!, 22 Sep 2014
I don't have pets, but I bought this to protect my sofa during parties. I have to say, I bought the cream coloured quilt and it has survived red wine and salsa just by wiping with wet cloth the following day. Very impressed. It's slightly too small for my sofa so it doesn't seat 100% correctly so I'm scoring a 4 out of 5 since there's no option so select a slightly larger 2 seater intermediate size (the options are either 2 or 3 seater).

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Product but poor packaging, 22 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These earplugs are really good and comfortable. They really do work. However they don't come in the 3M box that is shown in the posting, they are delivered loose in a plastic bag. Small issue as the price is low, but a cardboard box doesn't cost much so I expected to receive what was advertised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfort is King, 22 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most briefs are uncomfortable causing endless discreet adjustments, so I never buy them, opting for boxers. However I caved into the pressure from my girlfriend who wanted me to start wearing more. I searched for comfy briefs, and so gave them a go. I was surprised how comfortable they are while also looking sexy. They even put Calvin Klein briefs to shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge boost in performance, 22 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Installed into my mid 2013 MacBook Pro to replace the 5400rpm HDD and was astonished by the boost in performance. With my old drive, it would take approx 3 mins for my Mac to finished booting and launch Mail. With this SDD drive it takes 20 seconds. That's 15 times faster. Every other application I use is also incredibly speedy, such as Aperture, Logic Pro, X-Code (especially building projects and running iPhone simulator). I can't recommend it enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper than they look, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These don't quite look the same as advertised. Firstly there is no brand label on the front as per the picture.. they are plain white so they look cheaper. They also come in fairly poor packaging. That doesn't usually bother me, but if you're buying them as a gift you'll need to repackage them.

On the plus side they do feel sexy to wear. They are more see-through than portrayed in the photo.

In my opinion these should be priced lower than £5

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a relatively small Studio Apartment and needed to find a heater that I could place in the corner of the room without taking up too much valuable space. I wasn't at all disappointed with this purchase, it does a good job of warming up the whole room in little time. It is capable of warming my entire Studio within 5 mins.

A couple of things can be improved. Firstly, if you power down the heater at the AC Socket, it will not remember your preferred temperature and will default to 25˚C. I would prefer if it stored the setting. Secondly, you can't set a timer to turn it on.. there is only a power down timer. Thirdly, the fans aren't quiet therefore if you're a light sleeper and need this to warm the bedroom it might keep you awake. Finally the small brand sticker near the bottom of the tower fell off after a couple of uses because the glue melted by the warmth of the heater. Simply using a different glue would solve that issue.

I'm scoring this 4 stars since the issues are only minor for me. You get a very decent heater for your money, plus it's very stylish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is of very high quality. It is extremely sturdy and maintains tilted position perfectly. My initial concern was whether my wall would support the combination of this bracket's weight and my TV. Due to the extended arm, a fully extended bracket with a fairly large TV will of course impose a high stress... the product documentation advises that your wall should be capable of supporting 300kg (i.e. worst case condition with the maximum allowed 75kg TV weight and bracket arm fully extended).. how do you find out such information? I have no idea so I went ahead and gave it a go, and it's perfect, very sturdy. (My flat is a 1930's Victorian build with regular concrete block walls).

Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars No PSU, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The packaging content was missing the Power Supply Unit (PSU)... and since I needed the switch for an important presentation I had no time to return it and ended up purchasing a 5V PSU. The switch itself feels very cheap, but perfectly functional. I guess you get what you pay for, however I didn't with respect to the PSU.
