3.0 out of 5 stars Useful but clunky to set up, 16 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not the smoothest of installations. Considering so many peripheral products these days pretty much install themselves and connect easily, with this one unless you follow the instructions in the exact order, you might find yourself having to reset and start again. The booklet that comes with it is very basic so I would recommend taking a look at the full instruction manual available from the manufacturer's website www.leitz.com

I connected mine to WiFi through the iPad app, because using WPS directly didn't seem to work despite several tries and even putting the printer right next to the wifi router. You also have the option to connect to your desktop or laptop PC or Mac computer, as well as to Android devices. The instruction videos on the support website are also quite handy. Installing the software on Windows 7 was not very smooth for me, the look and feel of the installation is quite old fashioned and clunky and utilitarian.

The iPad app is actually very useful, and gives you a lot of printing options. The label quality will vary depending on which cartridge your get. You can have plastic or paper sticky back ones as well other choices from the manufacturer (or Amazon). Creating the labels is easy, and the printer cuts them before letting you take the label out of the front, (they sometimes stay there and other times they get spat out and fall below the unit).

The printing has a very good range of fonts available. I have so far only used it via the iPad app over the Wifi/AirPlay. Compact and very portable so either with its rechargeable battery pack or with the mains adapter and cable, you can easily take it with you whilst on the move and working in different locations.

The printing is black and white, though can be graded from very dark black to light eye (both text and background) but other colour options would have been good. The label cartridges slot in very easily, and self install very quickly when changing them over.

Finally... No on/off switch ... The only way is to pull the power cable out, which means if you carry it with the battery pack instead of the mains adapter, you need to attach and remove the battery pack to switch on and off

Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong flavour, 16 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Small white lozenges (shape of Rennies), Potent flavour, I think by virtue of its potency it does stimulates the saliva like glands to make the mouth less dry. It's the sort of taste you either love or hate. I don't like it but my other half does.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works straight away, 25 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Takes a bit of getting used to in terms of feeling of something being stuck up your nose but amazingly you can feel the benefit straightaway, it's almost as if you've taken a decongestant spray, so yes it does seem to have a beneficial effect

Price: £32.86

3.0 out of 5 stars Click shut not, 22 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Rotating feature is a bonus, I'm not convinced of the click link mechanism though. It doesn't always stick down properly requiring a bit of pushing, which sluggests to me it will wear out and keep flapping open eventually. Quite slim considering.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag, 22 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A bit of a mixed bag, even if it is a mixture of games. They're not the highest quality gaming experience but easy to pick up and pass the time if you don't want a huge time commitment of the massively more advanced games


Ferplast Predator Cat Toy, Orange

4.0 out of 5 stars My cat is a fan, 21 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Quick to set up, it needs 3 AA batteries (not supplied). I use rechargeable ones (you can use any AA batteries though). Annoying that it has one of those tiny Philips screws to get past before you can get to out batteries in. If you don't gave a tiny screwdriver.... forget it. If you do, then this is a fun toy for your cat. Mine always likes to play with it, particularly at night time. The 4 settings are useful, but I use the lowest setting, it's quieter and helps batteries last longer between recharges.

3.0 out of 5 stars Noisy, 21 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My cat seems to be engaged by it but after playing with it initially, the main curiosity seems to be to watch it. It's also a very noisy unit so it gets annoying after a while especially if you're trying to watch TV in the same room.

Easy to assemble, takes 3AA batteries (odd numbers are always annoying, breaks up sets of batteries which are generally even numbers)

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the third, 21 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is very long movie, lots of people have said that and it's true because if feels long too. However, given the awfulness of the third in terms of self indulgence of the tired main characters and the weird girlfriend change (and her appalling acting) this 4th instalment with Wahlberg and supporting cast looks positively thespian. The special effects are even more refined and 3D looks great even on a 40inch screen. Just don't watch it after a big lunch cause you will find yourself snoozing in the second half middle

Essentials of Inorganic Chemistry: For Students of Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Medicinal Chemistry

Price: £34.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Well structured, 18 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Concise, well written although quite basic in terms of the depth of chemistry it explains, but as an introduction to Inorganic Chemistry for Pharma science students it's probably adequate

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, 18 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very engaging toy, my cat took to it straight away and plays with it a lot at the moment. Easy to put together, instructions are pictorial and clear. The only thing I don't like is the fact that on laminate floor the lower ball makes a bit of a racket through the base amplifying the sound. A bit of padding in the base would sort it out.
