5.0 out of 5 stars Clip Clip, Away., 28 Feb 2013
This is another one in the excellent range of hair styling clippers from Philips, who have a lot of expertise in this field, of course. The clipper is very light, and ergonomic , styling your hair just the way you want it, in no time at all. My wife cut my hair, and she was amazed how quickly the job was done, and if you'd seen the mop I had before, you'd realise why she was so surprised!
The head, opens up for cleaning under the tap, and just make sure this inner compartment , and the clipper guide are free of hair, because clippings do tend to accumulate in these places. You can just keep raking it out of the guide, with a comb, as you go along. Also it's a good idea to put a drop of light mineral oil, like cheap bike oil, on the blades, after cleaning and drying. So, why not treat yourself to this great clipper, and save a fortune on barbers' bills? In time, you could use the money you would have spent, to buy other bargains here on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Groomed Up., 27 Feb 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Philips is the name you want to see on your personal grooming stuff- the best shaver I've got is a Philips one,my favourite hair trimmer is a Philips, and now my first stop for facial hair grooming is this set. The instuments have a quality feel about them which is always a good sign, and the inner packaging doubles up as a stand. I'm particularly plagued by nasal hairs, and I have several hair removers , none of which are any good. Not any more though, because this beauty got rid of all my nasty hairs right away ...brilliant!. The beard trimmer is a toned down version of Philips' excellent hair trimmers, with similar styling guide attachments. Here's a tip : put a spot of light mineral oil on the cutters after use, to keep them in tip top order. Cheap bike oil , is no good for your bike, but just the thing for these cutting edges. The set is ideal for fellas who want to get rid of any awkward facial hair, or just feel like tidying up.It's a great buy, and worth twice the price, to have that well groomed look, and get rid of any unsightly hair. I'm recommending this multigroom set for eveyone. Happy styling!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stay In Tune., 27 Feb 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an AVG product, and so you'd expect it to be good, and indeed it is, being easy install, and it works very efficiently, with amazing speed, to scan your pc, and rid it of the rubbish, that accumulates in everyday use. I let mine automatically scan and repair everything for me, but there are a zillion tweaks that you can do manually, if you're technically minded. It's amazing to see how many faults it finds, and repairs , in a matter of a few minutes. TuneUp is one of those things that it's handy to have around, to give you peace of mind, when using your pc.You can get free versions of this sort of thing, but I find it's often worth investing in a paid utility. I've just knocked a star off because, like a lot of other programmes, when you venture into the advanced stuff, it doesn't really explain enough about what it's advising, if you get my drift? For example , it'll bring up a big list of things that areb slowwing your pc down, and although it explains what their function is, it doesn't give enough info on the effects of removing it, on your system. Still, as I said I let it do everything automatically, so I don't have to think too much about it all. I can recommend this to all.

This review is from: Circus World (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This game wouldn't load on my Windows Vista laptop, and so I can't recommend it to anyone. In fact it made such a banging noise on the drive, that I was wondering if the lions had escaped! Don't go to this circus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get Protected With G.Data, 20 Feb 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a pretty standard package from the German company G.Data, and I've just knocked a star off because only one user for one year seems a bit tight. Make sure that you remove all traces of your previous anti virus package,for a clean install.I can recommend this as a useful way to get all round protection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny, 24 Jan 2013
Yeah, and at 50p a pair, with free packaging, you can't go wrong with these headphones. They're just like my iPhone headphones, except that they don't have the in-line remote control, and it makes me wonder if they're from the same factory in China. They sound great, and the stereo separation and balance, beats some headphones that cost a hundred times more, so grab these while they're going, if you want a good pair of headphones, that won't break your heart, if you accidentally tread on them! I mean, would you even notice, if you lost 50p!

3.0 out of 5 stars Electric Mix, 16 Jan 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This package is fairly good as a whole , but the individual items vary in quality. For instance, if you've spent a lot of money on an electric guitar , then the tuner on offer here would be inadequate, and you'd need to spend at least twenty quid to get a reasonable tuner. The strings on the other hand look perfectly ok. So, it's a mixed bag of tricks, some better than others, but will probably only suit the beginner. I would recommend that you buy your accessories individually, to get the best for your guitar. I'm sure Amazon's got plenty on offer, at bargain prices.

You can't beat leather, and what better case could you get than Amazon's own , for your Kindle Fire HD? Remember though that this will only fit the Fire HD. The colour is lovely, and it also doubles up as a stand, so what are you waiting for?

5.0 out of 5 stars Give Your Ears A Treat., 18 Dec 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These headphones are similar to the MM550 's , except they have smaller ear cups, which are on the ear , instead of over the ear. I'm not going into technical details here , but just want to say that these are superb headphones, and would be my choice to take on a desert island. They fold down to a handy pocket size,making them ideal for the frequent traveller. You'll need to have bluetooth on your device of course, and you can also buy a bluetooth transmitter here on Amazon,for any non-bluetooth mp3 players you have, which I did for my iPods. These headphones will readily connect to your iPhone. So ,if you're looking for something a bit special, which looks stylish , and sounds great , then why not let these headphones tickle your ears, I'm sure you'll love the Sennheiser experience. Amazon have knocked about £50 off the price at the moment, so now would be a good time to buy. Happy listening!
