5.0 out of 5 stars excellent gift, 8 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Came is very nice presentation box, and set to the correct time, the quality is excellent.
It looks and feels better in real life than the amazon photo (which makes it look a bit cheap) but is actually very well made, with thick sturdy plastics, and great (not garish) colours.
Arrived very fast (less than 24hours) via amazon.
WOULD recommend.


Police Venom Stainless Steel Necklace 44 cm

5.0 out of 5 stars Great design, well made, 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great design - POLICE seem to 'tailor' their designs to different suppliers, so comparing prices is not easy, but this general design was considerably cheaper on offer at amazon.
Negative was the stupid amount of packaging, boxes within other boxes, and then a bag to keep it in..

This is very well made, with a sturdy locking clasp, so unlike some cheap brands, its not going to fall apart the first time it gets wet.
Would Recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID! item never arrived, 21 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Waited many, many weeks; then was asked to wait even longer. Item NEVER ARRIVED.
I am now very careful where items are ACTUALLY dispatched from, regardless of the front page description, had several trading names.
Like other reviewers have also stated, this item NEVER arrived after waiting many, many weeks.
Very disappointing, and for that reason would NOT recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars First headphones that actualy stay in; Great quality design and build., 21 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As the tittle says, these are a unique design collaboration between Adidas & Sennhesier, and the results show !
They are the FIRST and ONLY headphones I have ever had that actually stay inside my ear during training; they have a unique inner ear design which does work.

They don't fall out, are comfortable, and washable too !
Comes supplied with various sizes of replaceable inner silicone cones, and a small bag.
The lead is also the right length, and quality durable thickness too.
*TIP* these are a cheaper version of the £49.99 ones, that appear the same, minus the phone controller (which is a pain anyway as these make the headphones fall out on other designs.)

These have Excellent sound and build quality - as you would expect from Sennheiser.
WOULD recommend.


AnySharp Global World's Best Knife Sharpener (Classic)
AnySharp Global World's Best Knife Sharpener (Classic)
Price: £11.04

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent; recovers sharp blades., 12 Sept. 2013
Brilliant product, does exactly what is says...
Check the pricing- I bought the silver colour from a supermarket with four letters for 25% LESS than amazon!

Product review:
Does a very good job with (blunt) knives.
I agree with some reviews that it is quite aggressive on the blades, but not everyone has access to a professional kitchen service: It does indeed leave metal residue, but I believe this is in part the sharpening cutter, not just the knife as some have claimed.
It brought back four very blunt knifes to super sharp.

*TIP* apply even pressure for the entire stroke and length of the blade, do NOT press too hard. One entire smooth pass. Check every 2-3 passes, then every individual pass.
It seems that one too many actually (re)makes the blade blunt again, so you then need an 'extra' pass to bring it back again.
-Worth keeping blades finally sharp with a Sharpening Steel after using this; as this is quite an aggressive tool, for occasional rather than every time use.
WOULD recommend.


Scholl Express Pedi Electrical Hard Skin Remover
Scholl Express Pedi Electrical Hard Skin Remover
Offered by EveryDay-Shop
Price: £20.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought as present, very happy recipient, 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
recipient asked for this item, so purchased as a gift.

Highly effective in use, and simply easy operation.
The 'smoothing' 'sander' is replaceable, so has longer term durability. Easy to clean after use.
No discomfort at all in use.

Provided instant, and effective results.
(recipient) WOULD recommend this product.


LaCie Rugged Triple 301982 500GB USB 3.0 and Firewire 800 Portable Hard Disk Drive
LaCie Rugged Triple 301982 500GB USB 3.0 and Firewire 800 Portable Hard Disk Drive
Price: £79.00

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed : Firewire, then totally. Poor quality drive., 9 Sept. 2013
same as other reviews:
First the firewire (which was always temperamental in terms of connection) failed.
Then just outside warranty, the entire unit failed.
Yet another LACIE that was handled with much hard drive careful respect, suddenly totally fail outright.

Goggle LACIE first, and then decide if you would purchase.
The innards,(and they do get VERY hot so how well are they designed?), do not seem to match the exterior appearance in terms of quality.

Personally I would *NOT* recommend LACIE ever again.

LaCie Rugged 500GB All-Terrain Hard Disk, FW800 FW400 USB2.0

1.0 out of 5 stars high FAILURE rate, 9 Sept. 2013
yest another failed LACIE drive.
Rugged ? maybe in appearance, but not performance and they are prone to overheating.

Repeated Failures 'just' outside the warranty period, so the innards do not match the exterior quality.

Have had several of these, all treated with respect, and all have failed. Google LACIE & forums.

would NOT recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good chill out, unknown artist(s), 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good Chill Out tracks. The kind of thing that is great for background at the BBQ ! ; whilst talking at a bar.

Have not heard nearly all of the tracks before, but they are good, and ideal for this mix.

Good price, Nice album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album; shame about the vocal breaks Explicit swearing., 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The music on this track is great, and "naughty Boy' has worked with some great vocalists: Emile Sande'; Gabrielle; to name but two.
There are several vocal speech/rap tracks between each 'music' track lasting up to a minute: this split the whole album;
Why? --because for some unexplicable reason, he chose to litter it with totally unnecessary explicit swearing, not big & not clever.

Record label: we're it not for this total unnecessary stupidity, it would have had a five.
Shame it spoils the entire excellent album.
