4.0 out of 5 stars Gives excellent ironing results, 29 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Rating: 4.5

With features like decent steam production combined with good pressure means that this Philips GC6611/30 SpeedCare is really worth a look at. The iron glides well through creases, giving a crisp finish to your ironing in next to no time. A model that produces a good level of steam for respectable period of continuous use - it works very well on synthetic materials but is less effective on cotton - that said it's still pretty decent on this type of material. You get a tapered soleplate that makes nimble work of ironing around buttons.

The internal anti-lime scale system is good at thwarting the generator from scaling up with lime-scale, and a light on the control panel shows when this needs to be done. There is ease of use as the generator's water reservoir is easy to remove. It can be filled at the tap or you can top it up by pulling it out and using a jug. It can feel a tad heavy on use, so if you have apprehensions about this, it is best to view and handle this unit in store environment to best evaluate its potential for you.

The downside is that unfortunately, this iron is noisy in use and there's no auto shut-off on this model either, otherwise a very good iron.

As the description suggests this title is aimed at clinicians who need to reacquire their knowledge of the subject, or to engage with the topic in a more in-depth fashion in the field of Anaesthesia. This ‘at a Glance’ title, is designed so that all the pertinent and essential details of clinical information you need is at hand is in this title. This is a title that is principally aimed, at the Foundation doctor (FY1 or FY2) and those clinicians who need a purview of the field. What is set out - is done in methodical fashion incorporating the wide-ranging view of anaesthesia in its various spheres, taking the reader through groundwork, organization and pharmacology.
The companion website to this book features over 40 interactive MCQs and answers, and 15 interactive cases. In essence a title that delivers its information in a clear and concise form.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good passport cover, 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good quality product and well designed (you get two covers), should protect your passport to a certain degree. Delivered within a good time frame and packaged well. The added 'credit' slots on either side a nice touch and useful

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives very good results, 28 July 2014
A very good shaving soap you get a very 'rich' and smooth consistency, which in turn helps to create a close and comfortable shave. I am very impressed with this Proraso product and have no hesitation in recommending it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it is, 28 July 2014
A budget shaving brush that is adequate for the job, it is never going to compete with pure bristle brushes. You have to remember the pricing between the two products is like 'chalk and cheese'. So long as it gives a reasonable length of service then I am happy. This great for people who have peripatetic working life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Youth as a tradable commodity?, 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
SPOILER ALERT

François Ozon's Young & Beautiful - a film that won't add up, well didn't for me. As time passes you believe you have the measure of it, but on further reflection the overall picture is somewhat inexplicable. A film concerned with female sexuality, chiefly in its nascent stages, and as such we the audience will be left puzzled. It centres on a Parisian teenager called Isabelle, played French actress Marine Vacth. She has a certain deportment - not unlike Catherine Deneuve's in Belle de Jour - that suggests she alone knows the answers and isn't telling.

As the film opens we meet Isabelle is on holiday with her family - on the eve of her 17th birthday, and she has decided to celebrate it by losing her virginity to a young German called Felix. An event, which for her, seems less of significance than she originally expected. Then the film jumps in time and family have returned to Paris: Isabelle, we discover, has turned to prostitution, a decision that the audience are never given a reason for. As the film moves on we are then, rather like voyeurs, given glimpses of her hotel room dealings.

After one, of her elderly customer experiences fatal heart attack during a liaison - she comes to the attention of the police, and this then leads to her mother finding out about her work. The audience are then shown the cash that she receives from her `activities' - as it simply piles up in her bedroom cupboard, it is obvious that money was not a motivator for her actions.

For me the film works because it withholds that tantalising answer of why she embarked on the path she had chosen: even when we learn of the event that lured Isabelle to prostitution was - just `idly fascination'. We leave the film without a real solution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, 27 July 2014
I got this for my partner who always wanted a natural sea sponge, for a while now. It has proved to be very pleasant to use, a real luxury item without the added price tag. and is nothing like a synthetic sponges with all the problems you can have with those! All in all - my partner is very happy with said purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic of the 70s TV, 26 July 2014
Another great production from the late M J Bird, dealing with Crete and in this case a central character who returns to the island decades after WW2. While the main theme deals with him and his experiences, there are episodes with a sub story of their own.
The transfer to DVD is not bad and I consider quite good. There is some 'bleaching' but rarely nothing to spoil its entertainment value.

Unless I am wrong there are two versions of this series out on DVD, one Dutch and other from Eureka. I personally think the Dutch version is the better of the two in terms quality of picture, otherwise the series on both are one in in the same.

The price paid was more then reasonable. Well worth investing your time and money. A real Classic TV, unlike some rubbish that gets on TV today. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Only worth getting if you really need it, 26 July 2014
A3 printer that only prints, there’s no scanning option – its designed to suit a home office environment. If you're printing colour office documents like charts and spreadsheets, you'll be pleased with the results. You get Wi-Fi connectivity with this printer; you also have the option of using a wired Ethernet connection.

If any one of the inks runs out, you need to change it before you can carry on printing - a warning message pops up warning against the ongoing risk of damage to the printer. So in order to continue you’ll need to purchase more ink before the last warning for continued printing. You can't set this printer up to automatically print on both sides of a page. Ink running costs could be better – on average this device used 300% more ink when printing occasionally (this is because like similar printers this printer cleans it print heads if you only print occasionally. This uses ink that never reaches the paper), compared with printing the same number of pages in one go, which is rather a downside with this printer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really wonderful outfit, 26 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is really wonderful outfit that fits well - comes in its own dress cover; there is good attention to detail, with a good overall design, good suitable fabric from the lovely ballet slippers to the tiara. We would definitely try out other dressing up costumes from this manufacturer. In short; a good quality item and our dear little niece, who is 3 years old, loves it - and I guess that is what counts at the end of the day.
