1.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't fit properly., 26 Jun 2014

It's got one job and it fails at it.

2.0 out of 5 stars All shout and no trousers, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It looks pretty but it doesn't do a very good job as a squeegee. Firstly the blade is too stiff so it doesn't cleanly clear water away. Most annoyingly though is that the edges of the blade turn in slightly so it's impossible to get the very edges of a shower screen clear - it leaves a 5mm strip of water against every edge.

Form over function I'm afraid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, 25 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sounds silly but I really, really like these. It's been a real trek to find decent icecube trays but these are ideal; big cubes, no-spill lip, strong, cubes come out with a twist and the trays stack nicely so you can put several in at once on top of each other.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and nasty, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought 2, opened one, returning both.

Body is light-weight plated plastic - very cheap feel and will be so easy to keep on knocking over, the felt base was only half stuck on, the shade had several dings and dents already in it. The shade clamp doesn't align properly. Terrible, avoid.

Used it to repair an old ornate antique gold mirror frame, worked really well and very pleased with the result. Only needed a tiny bit, tube will last for ages.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice light but not rain proof, 24 July 2012
Works nicely with a nice light except both of ours have now rusted inside because they let the rain in. After a heavy rain we have to pour the water out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and tacky, 30 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The keys have got a nasty clacky feel and the whole keyboard bends around the middle.

I use the arrow keys a lot for games, the left arrow key keeps on popping out of its socket.

Am going to buy a better keyboard.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning! Not 110g, 30 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've misunderstood the naming of this racket, assuming that the 110 referred to the weight, as so many other brands do. It doesn't, it's much heavier.

A lot of the Browning range use this naming system, with 120, 140 etc. I can't help but feel that this is deliberately misleading. I feel that this is underhanded, I'm not prepared to keep a product which dupes casual customers into buying it and will be sending it back.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 7 Nov 2011
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: RAGE (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Looking good does not ensure a good game. Rage is unforgivably tedious.

Rage is an almost entirely dull, unimaginative and un-engaging mix of hackneyed storyline, unsatisfying fps and oddly, mediocre car racing. I had high expectations but my heart fell within seconds upon encountering the fist NPC who started waffling on about some mundane task he needed help with, for which I couldn't care less.

So, as you progress you just get pushed on to other NPCs to do further seemingly irrelevant stuff. I couldn't wait to just get on with something and so would often rush off as an NPC was in mid-chat.

Don't be fooled by Id's Doom and Quake credentials, this bears very little resemblance, you'll only be disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Small but not mighty, 1 Jun 2011
Had this for about a year. Nice and slimline but it can't seem to fully charge my iphone 3GS even once from flat. There are much better and cheaper alternatives.
