4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent teeth cleaner but don't press pause button!, 30 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
5 star performance and paid for itself immediately by Clening backs of my teeth so well, saving me a trip to the hyginest. Following a tip on YouTube I also put Bicarbonate of Soda in the warm water to whiten my teeth which gets better over the weeks. But I don't press the pause button after nearly sending for help. 1 star off for the pause button that can get jammed but releases after pressure has been off for some time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value for money, 6 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic value for money! Its a Smartphone only bigger! Very fast, excellent screen & lovely thin bezel. WiFi has good reception range, listing more neighboring WiFi than my previous smartphone. Duel sim - Sim's can be inserted without switching pad off but I found it necessary to restart pad (which it does very quickly) after inserting sim for sim to be detected. I'm on 3 '321' payg sim which doesn't expire (3p per min. 2p per text 1p per MB data) & 'o2' for reserve. Mobile hot spot Tethering work very well. Speaker is clear with good volume. Camera has HDR

4.0 out of 5 stars Hernia belt!, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found these knee raps much better than any other hernia belt I've purchased!
Rapped around my waist & because of the elastic material of the bandage with large Velcro fastening pad I can easily tighten or loosen the now "belt" to suit physical effort required during my hard 8 hours working day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine Stihl 14" Chainsaw Chain, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is genuine Stihl chainsaw chain! I'm very pleased with it.
My new chain arrived promptly, in Stihl packaging & has Stihl stamped on every link!
It also has the filling guide marks - (which the original chain didn't have though I bought from an authorized Stihl shop)
Having guide marks on the chains depth gauges is particularly usefull for optimum performance of ones well sharpened chain!

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Phone!, 7 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buying this Star S5 Butterfly phone has saved me vast sums of money I'd considered spending on 'name brand' Android devices!
Comes with: Two batteries, Screen protector already in place & Leather effect flip case!

WiFi - connected to my Home WiFi no problems.

Camera 12MP is comparable to Canon 12MP, with similar auto focusing but also tap screen focusing - very good for a phone.
Front camera is also the best I've seen on a phone.

The 5" HD screen is very good & (for new to touch screen people) works best touched lightly!

Speaker is fairly good for a phone but using a Bluetooth (resonance speaker or 2.1 speakers via Laptop)is very good!

SIM - O2 no problem! I put in my large O2 SIM from old 'pay & go phone' & it works!
If you want to use O2 for Data find o2 APN settings easy to instal by following advice from DeeCee - review - comments
Micro SIM - 3 seems cheapest & now that 'Watch later' on YouTube can be pre-loaded from fast WiFi it's OK in areas of less good coverage out of town.

Being new to smart phones & Android the text messaging 'conversation' layout seems brilliant & fast!
I'm particularly surprised & impressed with the installed Google Speech to Text.

Apps download & instal very quickly from Play Store.

Free Google translator app - also has very good Speech to Text.

1.0 out of 5 stars One great leap from excitment into disapointment!, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was so excited when it arrived today but very disappointed after hours of struggling with it.
None of the apps I wanted would download "Problem with our site..try again later".
I see now why Leap Motions add has such a short & jerky shot of an internet page being moved or bounced slightly - because it doesn't work?
Cut strings game? What? It does actually say for 3 year old's upwards but actually needs left mouse key held down to cut strings for cute frogy!(3 year old's might be capable of doing that but it's not what's advertised)

So many of us particularly wanted to use Leap Motion as a way of leapfrogging touch screen to something more advanced in computer use.
Leap Motion Visualizer? Blank screen which wont exit without shutting one's computer down.

I just hope those young men at Leap Motion use the vast sums of money they must be totaling to get somebody to produce the updates necessary to bring this nice looking device up to expectations!

5.0 out of 5 stars 94% Protien Natural Pure Whey Isolate, 23 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been very pleased with this product. I wanted quality powder with full amino acid profile but with No GMO Soy, GMO Corn or any GMO derivatives!
94% & High performance production makes the price exceptionally good value per g of pure whey protein.
I've found mixing 20g this with 50g Monflake Fine Oatmeal, 50g ground Almonds & cold water makes an excellent breakfast & after-work lunch - perfect for reducing cholesterol & fat yet maintaining muscles!

4.0 out of 5 stars Co-codamol, 2 Jan. 2012
In my agricultural job, winter work always involves some difficult heavy lifting, strains are inevitable & days short.
Medical advise for occasional occupational lower back pain is to keep working, (too long in bed will make it worse) but manage the pain with suitable pain relief, balanced exercise, careful lifting using legs (never twist back when lifting) & the muscles will strengthen.
I've found off the shelf Paracetamol numbs outer head muscles but not effective for backs. Aspirin & Ibuprofen give me feelings best described as aggressive stomach & not effective for backs.
2 Co-codamol with breakfast before work & 2 with a snack immediately after work for 3 days, is usually effective but avoid taking any too late as this can result in restlessness when sleeping.
Less can be more, if very active, then 1 per day for 3 days is usually effective.
Don't ever take more the recommended maximum or even as much as that, because too much paracetamol is very harmful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Led Grow Light, 11 Mar. 2011
I bought this light because we use 600W hps lights to grow award wining English tomatoes through the winter on a large scale. If the Manufacturers are correct we will need 6 of these lights for each 600W hps replaced & the power saving will be considerable.
This light is highly directional, producing a compact square, therefore light is not wasted.
Surprisingly cool! Less heat on leaves is important as Photosynthesis works best 20c to 30c - if you can smell growing Tomato's leaves from a distance, the plants are too hot.
Ideal test: 6 grow lights & 6 tomato plant heads per sq/m (we increase number of heads per plant by keeping strong side shoots) My Kane - Alert - CO2 monitor reads around the ideal 1,200 ppm midday in our CO2 enriched green house & interestingly, gets up to 1,200 ppm in my bedroom from the respiration of just 1 person, so the bedroom is going to get the best results for an economical test.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mat alarm, 26 Jan. 2011
Works well under mat & has an alarm the neighbours could hear! Some thought needs to be taken about pets setting it off though!
