5.0 out of 5 stars Good at maintaining healthy nails and cuticle, 21 Oct 2014
This is pretty good oil that helps to nourish the nail and cuticle. At time of purchase, this seems to be quite a good buy . Both my partner and I have had reduced 'peeling' of skin around the nail, as well as stronger nails - that are less likely to be brittle and break. It has a lovely strawberry smell. Both my partner and really like Kaeso, they are quality products. This is fine addition to the Kaeso collection of natural products.

5.0 out of 5 stars See Naples and die?, 20 Oct 2014
The viewer is presented with the subtitled world of Gomorrah set in the Camorra, the Neapolitan crime consortium.

Originally, the book by Roberto Saviano was made into a film in 2008. The look and feel and the textures that make up Gomorrah do not look too dissimilar from the Baltimore of The Wire. Alternatively, for that matter, even the Brooklyn of the film Goodfellas. There are clichés and more clichés, in this crime drama. They are there precisely because they are part of the imagined landscape. The recent populist view of gangsters: they love their Mamas, they are foodies, they make the sign of the cross, they kiss one another on the cheeks, and they are affectionate with their children. Nevertheless, they are cold-blooded and would as soon kill you as look at you.

Largely the acting is spot on, However, the subtitling is rather suspect, in my opinion. Like The Wire before it, Gomorrah is interested in long paced form of storytelling, and hence it is generally leisurely, which is why in this first set-up chapter we are given just glimpses of characters. We see Imma, Pietro's hard - dispassionate wife, as well as their son Gennaro. Poor Gennaro, who longs to be included in family business, well not just yet anyway, as his father says to him. "Gennaro, you're my son." "You don't need chances."

While his lieutenant Ciro has the guile to do what it takes to get what he wants, the pertinent question here is how far is he willing to go and how much does he want?

4.0 out of 5 stars By and large a good product, 20 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If the information on this A4 Lever Arch File is to be believed - there is reason not to, then this file type will resolve the age-old problem of misaligned file prongs. Both at work and at home we used an uncounted number of both the A4 and the foolscap lever arch files, the later designed to hold Foolscap (folios are often used to hold A4 paper (210 mm × 297 mm. The slightly larger size of such a binder offers greater protection to the edges of the pieces of paper it contains). We have found across all brands that one in three files, we bought, will/have developed the very annoying nature of misaligned prongs. On the face it this archer file seems to have better construction backed up with a 5 year guarantee - but like all things only repeated use over time will be the true litmus test for the longevity of the prongs working correctly.

The last two enhancements, the ability for the Leitz 180° mechanism opening to a full 180°, giving 50% wider opening and the opportunity to file from both sides is a good idea and a rather useful feature. Lastly the ability for the file to hold more sheets of paper is an additional boon. The pricing of this item is a tad high, but considering the added benefits - a price worth paying if you are dipping in and out of this archer file on regular basis. If however, you are just archiving, and will be hardly using the file, and for those of us on limited budget it may be better to go with the cheaper A4 and or foolscap lever arch files.

In summation a good product backed with a good warranty, on the face of it a good product that seems to deliver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Food Storage Containers, 19 Oct 2014
These are really a lovely set of storage containers that you can use in the microwave. They are also safe to use in fridge, freezer section and dishwasher. The important thing for us is that they are BPA Free Plastic. Now on occasion my colleagues' wife puts together a rather nice Indian meal, the spices used especially `Turmeric' always managed to leave a stain in our storage containers, but with these Rubbermaid products there is no staining and no leftover odours either. Their unique design lends itself to efficient storage. At the time of writing this review, we ordered our 18 piece set - which really works out to 9 containers and 9 lids - from Amazon.com directly to the UK. As the order fell under the import duty threshold there was no duty to pay. So we only paid £13.02 which is a very good saving compared to the retail price on Amazon.co.uk. So our advice would be to shop around and check prices before you buy.

We highly recommend these Rubbermaid containers and lids; they are good quality and can be found for a very good price.


Philips GU10 5 Watt 230 V LED Dimmable Spot Bulb, Warm White
Philips GU10 5 Watt 230 V LED Dimmable Spot Bulb, Warm White
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good GU10 LED bulb, 19 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are great for the hallway and recommended to everybody who wants to replace GU10 with economical bulb Great quality. We have not been able to test out the dimmable aspect of this LED, as we do not need it in the hallway. It is worth bearing in mind that these particular bulbs are quite front heavy, so can make directional light fittings fall downwards from their initial position due to their weight. We also found that can be difficult to fit flush fitting ceiling housing – this not the fault of the bulb itself – but still some people may need assistance when fitting them.

So far, the Philips GU10 bulb is a bright and warm bulb - it should save money on the electricity bill. However, it is early days, I do prefer these warm white as a replacement for halogens.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really nice Soft Shell Jacket, 18 Oct 2014
I got this for my nephew to wear and although he is only 15 this jacket fits him perfectly (received size small) - and seems rather tailored in my humble opinion, which might help with sizing as he is 5'6" and quite a slim build. The fleece lining is rather well made - it is also incorporated into the jacket. This added protection should help in mild wintry weather. The seams are strong and durable, with extra padding in all the right places i.e. in the shoulders, and elbows - in essence, this is a garment that has copious attention to detail for sports activity.

Although not bulky, the coat is has good waterproofing, although I am not sure how well it will do in a real downpour. It has a plethora of good strong pockets with added pull cords to close the openings quickly and effectively. Please bear in mind that this is not meant to be used as an all-weather jacket - after all, it is sports jacket. My nephew wears this for general wear as seems to be the norm these days. This is a garment has flexibility and manoeuvrability - for me this is a key component and allows the wearer to move arms freely, and thus lends itself to active life and sporting activities

All in all a nice looking garment that designed well for a sporty person, but can be used for casual wear too.

4.0 out of 5 stars AX860i PSU is truly an impressive piece of kit, 16 Oct 2014
In terms of Aesthetics the AX860i looks pronounced with its dark and orange logo design. For this is a rather strapping PSU and will fit virtually any chassis but it's wise to always make sure you have the right chassis for this PSU.

The cables are done in a dark black. The connectors themselves are all black as well. The added benefit obviously is very clean looking wiring for that ultimate finish in your ATX case. I am a complete novice, but in my ever so humble opinion the Modular design is the way to go. As you use what you need in terms of wiring, keeping the innards clean and tidy, plain and simple. And overall it is a great looking PSU, slightly longer than your typical ATX sized PSU though.
This PSU is very efficient, has good looks, it is modular, it is stable, and comes with all dark cabling and its drop dead silent as well. The one thing that could hold you back, from your potential purchase, is the pricing. But please bear in mind The 7 year warranty and after all it's a premium product - that is robust and well made.

The new AX series PSUs stand out from many competitors by a good margin. But admittedly it's a crowded market place - with class and proficiency levels being bumped up year on year. Again remember this PSU is highly efficient, it has a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) to provide digitally-controlled power and an interface to Corsair Link software for real-time monitoring and control. This AX860i PSU is truly an impressive piece of kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars The photographs are real gems in this edition,, 16 Oct 2014
The photographic images presented are very good, and most are completely new to me. The veteran accounts are good and complement this edition well, couple this with good referencing and bibliography then this edition makes for good specialist book that would be of benefit to the avid modellers as well as a History buff. This book is worthy of a good 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good 16 port unmanaged switch, 15 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since I integrated this 16 port switch into the network, so far so good - it has been trouble free and has no noise issues. The device is cool to the touch, but still it is best keep it away from central heating or other devices that generate heat. The size of the switch is not that big and as it is Gigabit you get faster transfer rates. However, remember you will need a Gigabit network card in every networked machine in order to get the full 1000 mbps throughput, plus all ,associated network cables must, be rated, at cat5e and above, to take advantage of the improved performance.

Please note my device arrived with a two plug, however, the seller did supply a UK plug.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Boys are back and are on top form!, 15 Oct 2014
Pretty much from beginning `The Blood Crows' goes straight into the action and the reader is given a vivid account of blood and guts. For those of you who have sampled other books in the series you will no doubt be familiar with Mr Scarrow's approach to action scenes as the reader is immersed into the narrative, better than some video game. What you also get in this new novel are some new and interesting plot threads.

Mr Scarrow also pays attention to historical element - the reader gets a thought-provoking look into Roman society and here we really get to see the differences between say the native inhabitants of Britannia and the Roman occupiers. The dialogue is framed in such a way - so you really get a feel for the merits of this book. The pacing, as ever is good, and is pretty engrossing as well as entertaining. The Blood Crows is literally edge of your seat stuff, as the author has mastered the art of balancing between well moulded characters and pulling the reader into their `world'. The characters of Macro and Cato, as always, are the centerpiece of the series, they are really well crafted and it was pleasure to be in their company again. They do not fail in keeping the readers interest; after all `we' the readers have `invested' ourselves in their lives - warts and all.
So, if you're interested in reading about the rich tapestry of Imperial Roman and the Empire they forged, or you are already familiar with Simon Scarrow's Eagle series - then look no further as The Blood Crows will be right up your street. Great story telling that only Simon Scarrow could have put together.
