Smartwool PhD Run Ultra Light Mid Crew Performance Socks - Black, X-Large
Smartwool PhD Run Ultra Light Mid Crew Performance Socks - Black, X-Large
Price: £9.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect, 22 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've only worn these a couple of times so can't comment on durability etc. yet. The socks seem quite small at first, but are very stretchy so easier to put on than you might think at first, and not at all uncomfortable. They are quite thin, though, and have a slightly 'slippery' feel, so if your shoes are at all loose you may find that your feet slide around and end up causing problems of all sorts (not least, blisters). And because they are so thin and delicate, if you get any loose rubble into your shoes, even a small grain of sand, you will certainly feel it. And finally a minor point on the looks: they appear quite 'technical' and 'sporty' in the picture, but once you have your shoes on all you see is the black & grey ankle part, which looks a bit grandfathery. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good trolley, 18 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to assemble, took me 10-15 mins at most; the only tool required was an allen key, which is supplied. (OK, the instructions are a bit vague, but it's such an easy job that they're not really required.) When the shelves are fitted, the whole thing becomes surprisingly sturdy and stable, I was quite impressed. The only slight issue is with the wheels, where the lock buttons are very sensitive so with the slightest touch of the button the wheels lock. On the whole a good little trolley.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice pan to use, but already slightly buckled, 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have the smaller 20cm version of this, which I'm very happy with, so thought I'd get the bigger one as well. How disappointing that after a month of (light) use, the base is already slightly buckled and no doubt about to get only worse. The small one doesn't suffer from this, but this bigger one has more of the 'flat' (or what used to be flat...) area and is therefore more prone to buckling I guess.

The frying surface of both pans is great, and I've not had any problems with the handle getting hot as some other reviews suggest (yes, it gets warm like metal handles always do, but not excessively so).

So all in all a good pan, if only they could find a way to keep it fully flat (or maybe you just have to avoid the bigger sizes).

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not brilliant (and too long!), 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mad Dogs (Amazon Video)
The series as a whole was enjoyable enough in a sort of 'light entertainment' way, but didn't really provide any great new insights into the human nature (which BTW isn't just a flippant remark, I actually did think it had the potential for that, and at times I felt that's where it was heading - alas, not). Also, I can't help thinking it had been stretched out to probably about twice the length it needed to be: had they squeezed it into 5-6 episodes, I'm not sure that they would have had to leave out anything of substance.

I was expecting the final episode to reveal something unexpected and/or to produce a great plot twist, but there wasn't one, really. I thought the whole plot logic turned out to be a bit messy, almost as if the writers themselves got to the last episode and then said "now what?" - but then again, maybe this way was more realistic and 'true to life', after all things don't always follow Hollywood plot lines leading to a grand finale, sometimes they're just 'messy'. So on second thoughts, maybe that (assuming that was intended) should earn the show an extra half a star.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disgusting, 13 Jan. 2016
I had high hopes for this, having read all the reviews saying it's like the real thing, etc. Alas, it's foul, and I hate it. :( The initial sensation, the main taste (if you can call it that), and the aftertaste are all quite different, and none of them pleasant. I'll rather cut down the number of times I eat pancakes and waffles, and have the real thing instead of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product, better than expected, 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good product. I was a bit sceptical about the telescopic mechanism, but it seems very stable and solidly built - and now in hindsight I'm glad I didn't have to drill any holes! The instructions seem a bit confusing at first glance, but in reality it took literally a few minutes to put together, and no tools were needed. (Hint: it helps if you measure the height of the space where you're fitting this before you start to assemble the unit, as there are slightly different pieces needed depending on the height.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating book about a fascinating city, 15 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Oxford (Paperback)
Having lived in/near Oxford for 15 years, I on one hand immediately recognise my familiar and beloved city from this book, and on the other discover something new and fascinating on every page. Beautifully written, endlessly interesting, and on the whole a joy to read. Cannnot recommend this enough for anyone who thinks they know the Oxford 'town & gown' - but suspects there might be so much more to it than meets the eye...

Excellent tail light - looks very small and innocent, but packs a real punch! I also have a Moon front light which is even more impressive. Becoming a big fan of Moon! :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable, 10 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not impressed. The gadget itself seems nice enough, but the firmware is flaky and the browser-based control panel software is pretty rudimentary. My network clients log into the signal well, but the connection is dropped after a few minutes (and there's nothing to indicate why) so you have to keep on re-connecting constantly. As there doesn't seem to be any support available, and no firmware updates to be found anywhere, I had to return this. (Note to self: next time stick to some known brands, at least there's someone to shout at when things go wrong!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird but worth watching, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Under The Skin [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Weird but at the same time strangely compelling. Visually stunning, many scenes literally take your breath away (and no, not just the ones with Ms Johanssen in the buff...). An odd mixture of pleasure and discomfort, but interesting and enjoyable nevertheless, and well worth watching.
