5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Inspirational, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Since I Saw You Last (Audio CD)
Undoubtedly this is a very introspective album putting personal reflections to music. However it works well and offers listeners the chance to share some of Gary Barlow's thoughts which may also be pertinent to their own lives.

Rarely do I purchase an album and enjoy every track instantly. In fact sometimes I never really like some tracks and then resent the financial outlay. This album however is quite different and offers a range of upbeat tracks to the deeply reflective ballads.

Many people may misjudge Gary Barlow because of his extensive media appearances. I suggest those are put behind you and simply absorb the messages he is conveying in this inspirational album. It's quite different from the Take That stable and in my opinion for the better.

Give this album a try ... unless you're biased against Mr Barlow I doubt you'll be disappointed! Favourite tracks are Dying Inside, 6th Avenue, God and Let Me Go but they are all very listenable!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cumbersome, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item is bigger than images suggest. If on 24 hours a day it consumes an entire tank of water and filling the tank isn't the easiest of tasks.

Whilst almost silent in operation, there is quite a loud gurgling sound when the water level in the tank periodically drops to replenish the lower reservoir.

On the plus side, there are two nozzles for directing the mist and after about 4 weeks use it does appear to have some effect on the atmospheric condition in the room where it's used.

These are ideal for making one's own business cards as they exude a professional image.

Their weight is such that they do not bend once separated from the A4 sheet and each card snaps away with ease.

Specific Avery software will be needed in order to match the template with the product as there are many variants. However software can be readily downloaded.

A word of warning however ... this is not a cheap way of obtaining business cards once ink costs and potential design errors are considered!

3.0 out of 5 stars Average At Best, 8 Sept. 2013

Sizing not the best although this is becoming commonplace nowadays with most products made in Asia!

Shoes don't look as good in reality as they do in the illustration.

An OK product for casual wear in the winter months but nothing special. The comfort of these shoes may improve with use but still feel rather tight after wearing them on about ten occasions. Beware of buying shoes online without first trying them on in a branch outlet.


Braun Series 7 720s-4 Electric Shaver
Braun Series 7 720s-4 Electric Shaver

4.0 out of 5 stars Close Shave, 13 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After years of using Philishave rotary shavers, I have returned to a foil shaver. This product was an absolute bargain as it was offered in Amazon's Boxing Day deals so in a way the purchase was a no-brainer. This shaver only cost twice the price of a replacement set of cutters for my old shaver when it was heavily discounted.

The Braun 720 offers a very close shave with adjustable settings as well as a swivel head that can be locked into place if preferred. Under normal use expect to get about 12-14 shaves from a fully charged battery. The shaver is slightly on the heavy side but this is not detrimental to comfortable use. For those not used to foil shavers, it does take a little time to adjust to pressure and strokes needed to achieve a close shave but there is no doubt that the razor gives a much closer shave than the rotary one I previously used.

The shaver comes with a soft travel case which offers minor protection only. My only main criticism of this product is that it does not come with a stand and there is also no foil guard for when not in use. This makes it quite difficult to store and there is the slight chance that the shaver could get damaged if care is not taken.

Overall it does as good a job as its more expensive stablemates and for closeness of shave it takes a lot of beating!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bargain!, 13 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cover skin was purchased to replace a former Apple branded cover costing over 6x as much. Basically it does the same job although the fit appears slightly out of kilter to the iPad. Still it's only a functional protective cover so any slight imperfections are acceptable at such a bargain price. The magnetic clasps also come away from the tablet on occasions but that is simply through holding the product rather than perceived malfunction.

At such a price, one can afford to replace the cover several times and give the iPad a new look instead of paying a premium price for the branded product and living with it for a lengthy period of time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Invisible, 13 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very minimalistic cover which simply protects the back and sides. Owing to it's flush fitting, there are no lips protruding over the edges of the screen. For some, this may be a negative aspect but the main purpose of this cover is to be as unobtrusive as possible. It performs that function very well and from a distance gives the impression that the iPhone is not fitted with a cover. After all, having spent a large sum of money on a beautiful aesthetically designed product, it seems nonsensical to cover it with cheap gawdy plastic. Whilst this case is obviously plastic, it is very subtle and allows the beauty of the iPhone to shine through!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre at best, 15 July 2011
After my previous shaving head broke over 12 months ago I reverted to an older razor rather than replace the heads on my Arcitec shaver. Finally I relented and replaced the shaver head unit. The Norelco brand is simply the name Phillips uses in the USA so no one need be apprehensive about the quality.

Unfortunately the performance of the blades can be described as mediocre at best. Despite shaving for over 5 minutes the head never produces a close cut and my 5 year old razor still gives better results with it's original cutting blades!

I was not impressed with the Arcitec razor after purchase, describing the product as design over substance. Sadly the replacement shaving head has not altered my opinion one iota, and effectively the purchase has been a waste of money. I still finish my shave with my old razor after first using these blades.

If you can manage without, I'd suggest doing so. Furthermore, for a small additional outlay, one could purchase a complete new shaver.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Product, 20 Dec. 2010
When it comes to protecting the screen of the iPhone 4, one is faced with numerous choices, most being the ubiquitous screen protectors. Having wasted hard-earned cash on several adhesive protectors, none of which were particularly successful and also dimmed the display, I decided to research for an alternative and came across this case. It literally fits like a glove with the cut-outs perfectly in line with the phone. The case also comes in a variety of colours so there should be one to meet the tastes of the majority of buyers. The case adds little to the bulk of the phone and when closed, the felt lining of the lid offers perfect protection for the screen. This effectively eliminates the need for any adhesive protection meaning that the screen can be used as intended without any loss of image quality.

A slight potential concern is the durability of the hinge which covers the charger connector when the case is closed. This is made of thin leather and could weaken with use. Also the hinged cover can make it difficult to handle the phone when taking photographs as obviously both the screen and the lens on the rear have to be fully accessible.

Overall, however, this appears to be a quality product which enhances the iPhone 4 whilst offering maximum protection. With a little care, I would expect it to last for a considerable period of time and although quite expensive to purchase, is a small price to pay for piece of mind in knowing that it offers excellent protection for the phone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and Cheerful, 3 Sept. 2010
For the discounted price, the product represents fair value. With six covers included for the price, one would expect a fair period of time over which the screen would be protected. However the first application failed miserably with one of the tabs coming away from the covering sleeve prior to adhesion. That reduced the usable covers to five. Despite what the product description says, the cover does reduce the brightness of the screen meaning that this has to be increased, thereby contributing to battery power consumption. The cover very quickly attracts finger marks which further hinders the brightness and these are difficult to remove effectively.

As in all things, one gets what one pays for! If you don't mind frequent changes of the cover and can accept a reduction in screen brightness, then this product may be for you. However, I shall be investing considerably more in a product sold only by Apple which not only protects the front but also the rear of the iPhone.
