Lowepro Nova 200 AW All Weather Shoulder Bag for Digital SLR - Black
Lowepro Nova 200 AW All Weather Shoulder Bag for Digital SLR - Black
Price: 64.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Roomy and well made., 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent bag for those who need to carry a little more gear with them. It's light and strong, comes with an all-weather cover and works well. Mine holds a Nikon D5200 with 10-24 zoom attached, another D5200 with 55-200 zoom. It also carries my 18-55 and 70-300 zooms and I think I could get a few more things in! There's also lots of pockets for SD cards and other accessories.

This review is from: IXO Screwdriver Screwdriver (Toy)
A simple but effective solution for those triangular slot screws used to fix many models to their base. In my case, I wanted to transfer a Corgi model from its cardboard box to a plastic display case. Job without this screwdriver... impossible. Job with... seconds!

I'd already purchased these in the past, though in black. Good, strong material, water resistant and plenty of zipped pockets. They are ideal for walking in the countryside but are smart enough for use elsewhere. They wash well, dry quickly and look like new. Obviously, their water repelling abilities will fade with time and further washing but this happens to all trousers of this type. They can be reproofed, using one of the sprays you can buy, if desired but to be honest, at around a tenner a pair, I'll just be putting in another order when that eventually happens!

Kitchen Craft Coated Dish Drainer
Kitchen Craft Coated Dish Drainer
Price: 9.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and practical., 19 Jan 2014

I didn't expect to get excited about a drainer but it's very well ginsihed in bright white plastic over its metal frame and ideal for those with a smaller draining board like mine. It didn't sit perfectly flush but that's due to a warp in the old kitchen draining board and not the product, so I just adjusted the feet on this drainer and now all is stable. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and power!, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A heavy item and I was wondering if I'd done the right thing buying it, as I knew it wasn't the most up to date but it's a very good laptop. Plenty of memory, good hard drive space and the Nvidia GeForce graphics chip. Just remember to Google how to switch it on for your games, or your laptop will by default use its Intel chip. The finish of the laptop is excellent. It is a fingerprint magnet but a soft cloth soon sorts that out. The illuminated keyboard and looks good, without being too 'bling' or distracting. It can be turned off by pressing "Fn" and "Space" together, if desired, though. All in all, a very impressive machine that would please gamers, business and casual users alike.

This review is from: Soft Toys Ty BRUTUS cm 20 (Toy)
I bought this for a friend who loves Rotties, as an extra Christmas present. When I received it with some other items, it was all squashed into a plastic bag and didn't look very attractive but when 'released' it soon became apparent that it's soft, well-made and appealing.

For what it is and its low price, it's okay. The finish is fairly good and it's an attractive item that does what it's intended for. Unfortunately, my example , the transfer was way off centre, so it isn't where it should be. Disappointing. Would have sent back if it had cost more.

If you grew up in the 60s you may well remember the Mars Attacks bubblegum collectors cards. This book details the whole series plus later additional sets. Recommended for anyone who may have collected the cards as a youngster.
