2.0 out of 5 stars A PARAGON OF BAD DESIGN, 10 Mar 2014
Everything about this except its initial appearance is dreadful! It is so heavy that I had to have physiotherapy to dissipate the pain in my knees and wrists. The on/off switch is on the handle where you can't help but accidentally switch it off while working. It doesn't steer accurately, so that (usually on the reverse part of the movement) it crashes into furniture, and it is so heavy that it knocks chunks out of wooden items. Like most vacuums, it doesn't have any suction within about 3 inches of the walls/skirting boards, so these areas just accumulate dust. The hose is far too heavy, and if used at its fullest extent is impossible to hold still or manipulate in tight areas; if you pull the hose to where you want it, you can easily pull the whole vacuum cleaner over - and if it hits you or something fragile, its weight will destroy. The black finish looks fine in the showroom, but if the cleaner knocks a radiator or similar, a white gash appears on the black finish. If you are right handed, there is constant juggling to swap over the power lead and the hose, which frequently become entangled if what you're cleaning is on the 'wrong' side. All in all, a horrible machine!

3.0 out of 5 stars A lovely style but delivered damaged, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had seen these before and wanted a pair, so was delighted to find them available at a good price.
However, the reason for the attractive price was - I imagine - that one of the shoes had been exposed to sunlight and was very noticeably faded. Having complained, I was offered a paltry 10% refund, so I returned the shoes for a full refund, and easily obtained a perfect pair from another on line retailer at only £4 more - well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had already seen this book in a bookshop, and thought it was beautiful - not only bringing back lovely memories of a beautiful city I used to live in, but also a wonderful example of watercolour painting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Voices like melting chocolate!, 21 Jun 2008
This review is from: Blake (Audio CD)
What a stunning album! I requested it for Christmas after seeing Blake at the Festival of Remembrance, and what a delight the album was... my only criticisms are first - a few naff tracks (God only knows - Beachboys did it better) and too many female sopranos in some (Swing low). If I buy a CD for men singing harmony, I don't want screeching women!
I do hope that a second album (and a website??) will soon be available.
