Rapesco X5-90PS Less Effort Heavy Duty Stapler
Rapesco X5-90PS Less Effort Heavy Duty Stapler
Price: £34.34

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact, 2 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Compact and strong. Looks lithe compared to most other heavy duty staplers I've used, so a good way to keep from taking up too much space on your desk. The power assisted description is a bit misleading in my opinion. I suppose it's a function of the mechanism to provide more leverage than the size suggests, but I don't hear any air compression nor does it require batteries for the said power assistance. But regardless of that (which might be down to my interpretation) it doesn't disappoint as a heavy duty stapler.

4.0 out of 5 stars Functional, 2 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fits well, even with the magnetic Smart Cover on. However if you use a back and front cover then you would struggle to carry it in this sleeve. The padding is adequate. Basic but functional. Why pay more unless you want a fancy looking one.

4.0 out of 5 stars One seriously complete kit, 24 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This set has pretty much everything you need. The cross action does give a much better clean and shine than my older Braun electric toothbrush. The. Three different heads provided to get you started but I actually prefer the Trizone head (which is compatible but not supplied with this set). I use my Trizone spare heads which I'd bought recently and the combination is excellent. However a drawback, if I need to be picky, is the fact that the holder unit is designed to be used on a bathroom stand close to electric socket (two pin shaver socket). Like the ones you get in hotel bathrooms. Most homes don't have that: I have to keep the holder/charger part on my bedside cabinet using a two pin to three pin adapter. The smart guide is nifty but it's probably for very diligent people. I find the brush grip 2 minute alert is enough of a guide, and it's tactile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 24 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Astonishing sound given the compact box. Very easy to set up via the iPad (via AirPlay) and works easily via the laptop over wifi using iTunes. Very quick to load with the first song and commands are prompt. It's the first airplay system I've used that reacts so promptly. Previously I've found the slow start of a playlist quite annoying, but not with this unit. The sound quality is crystal clear, good tight bass with lowest frequencies audible without booming or distorting.


Rapesco Supaclip 60 Dispenser with 8 Clips

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy alternative, 5 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Handy alternative to stapler, with less likelihood of hurting yourself (than staples) when you want to remove one, reusable and easy to apply. The only criticism is that when you want to put the clips into the dispenser, they can occasionally get jammed and u need a thin object (end of pen or letter opener) to prod it back in.

4.0 out of 5 stars great value smart kit, 20 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks good, solid and like it will work for a long time. So far so good, it charges my mobile quickly in the car, so it' more than just a top up. I like the extra slot for apple devices' cable, which I will use on long journeys to make sure my ipad is charged up and full when i get to destination despite streaming my long playlist by bluetooth from it to the car stereo.

The only reason i don't give 5 stars is that the instructions while handy, left me not knowing if the extra slot can be used for non apple cables, so it could be my lack of knowledge of the voltage/ampere/resistance specs but .... probably a few other people out there the same

4.0 out of 5 stars Proper protection, 20 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice feel to these and assemble easily, with satisfying clicks. Interchangeable colour trims are nice touch and the raised rims protect your screen pretty nicely. Only criticism is they are chunkier than the description suggests and the htc mini one looks a bit more like the non mini version with this cover, but the grip it provides more than makes up.

One more thing to point out, the listing pictures might make you think you get two complete sets, but actually you get just one middle section with two sets of interchangeable top/bottom trims.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat, sort of useful, 17 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Makes a nice gentle nightlight, blueish hue, quite soothing. The ceiling image projection bit is also fun, you need the place to be very dark to see it, but at the price I think it's a neat little bedside gadget for kids.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't win any original design accolades, but it is functional, and good value. It takes a few minutes to figure out how to load the pepper mill (the salt bit is obvious), which is by lifting the salt section off completely after unscrewing the top. The salt dispenser holes are a little wide so unless you use it in a very humid place, the salt pours out of it a little too freely for my liking, but once you know that, you can be a bit more careful with the dispensing action!

5.0 out of 5 stars Punchy, 17 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Easy to use, punchy sound, quite incredible really given it's tiny size. Clear midrange, which is what you want particularly for pop music and decent audible bass. It's not stereo, but for travelling purposes especially it is a super little gadget, whether for ipad, ipod, mobile phone music app, laptop, netobook etc.
