Qualtex Standard Post Motor Filter For Dyson DC11 Vacuum Cleaners
Qualtex Standard Post Motor Filter For Dyson DC11 Vacuum Cleaners

Price: 10.89

4.0 out of 5 stars Filter out any cheaper models, 13 May 2014

There are lots of non-OEM filter replacements out there, of varying quality and price. This one seems a nice compromise, seeming to be well made and sold at a good price.

Seemed every bit as good as the original carbon brushes. Also sold at reasonable price, and arrived quickly. So would recommend the retailer, First4spares.

However, fitting the brushes (which is fairly easy, guided by how to videos on YouTube) didn't resolve the problem with my Dyson motor. It still sounded like a misfiring car, spewing carbon dust out the back into the post filter motor. So, I had to fit a new motor, which did the trick. After this and a good clean out, plus all new filters, my Dyson is now back to its normal self at a fraction of the cost of a new Dyson.

3.0 out of 5 stars Make mine a decaff, 13 May 2014

If you consider this as an expensive, pleasant smelling shampoo that causes a tingling sensation on the top of your scalp if you leave it on for a minute or two (as recommended by Alpecin), then you won't be disappointed. However, if you expect it to do anything about hair loss, then you will. Initially it actually accelerates hair loss in the area of concern, as the older hairs fall out and go into the telegen stage. Later these regrow, but there was no noticeable additional growth to cover my area of thinning. And I used the shampoo for over a year, so I gave it a good trial.

I've tried a number of products, diets and even massage to stop thinning, including steroidal solution. But the only one that has shown any affect is high strength minoxidil. And even that is slow to act and of limited effectiveness.

When you've got arthritis and the Doctor has said there's no treatment beyond painkillers, you start to grasp at straws for a solution. And as the write-ups and TV review on Copper Heelers was mostly favourable, I seized at this particular straw. They're cold on the feet when you first put your shoes on, especially in Winter, but they soon warm up. And after a while, surprisingly you barely notice the hard metal lump below your heel. However, after hours of use the middle of my foot (arch area) became painful, to the extent it was uncomfortable to walk anywhere. As it often takes time to adapt to new footwear, I persevered for several weeks. However, the pains in my feet became worse, whilst I noticed no noticeable improvements to my arthritis. So I stopped using them, and fortunately no lasting damage appears to have been done, and the arch pain receded after a week or so. I was careful to source the correct size for my feet, although that only caters for length, and not differing widths or foot shapes. Perhaps someone with a flatter and narrower foot than mine might have less of a problem, but that's just speculation. On my experience, I'd recommend potential buyers give this one a miss.

Usually with printer ink cartridges, buying cheap means buying twice. Other non-OEM cartridges I've used have jammed up ink jets, leaked onto my hands, or even refused to work in the printer. However, I'm now on my second batch of these ones and have found no such problems. Also the print quality and longevity of the cartridges seems much the same as the official HP ones. And all at a much lower price. So I would definitely recommend these to anyone fed up of being ripped off by HP.

This review is from: ENERGIZER 1 HOUR CHARGER (Misc.)
Compared to my old tank of a battery charger, this is so much better, being light, compact, good looking, and fast! And that battery shaped LED charging display is very effective, giving you a good heads up on where you are in the charging process, and telling you if one of the batteries is duff/past it. And the price is great, coming as it does with four new AA rechargeables. The only drawback is that it's made in China, which throws some doubt on its potential longevity.

Draper Expert 63637 2-4.5 mm Revolving Punch Pliers
Price: 11.17

4.0 out of 5 stars Punches above its weight, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Solid and well made set of punch pliers, with no real flex in use. Holes are easy to make in leather belts, with a clean finish around the edges. The only slight drawback is that the wheel, that you use to select the right size of punch, just rotates in one direction and is a bit stiff. At the price though, you can't go far wrong with this item.


Ultimate Addons 3 Metre Long USB Sync Data Cable for Apple iPad 3 All Editions
Ultimate Addons 3 Metre Long USB Sync Data Cable for Apple iPad 3 All Editions
Offered by UltimateAddons-UK
Price: 3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A quick plug, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cable supplied by Apple is great if you only plug in overnight. However, the iPad is so fantastic that it gets a lot of use, so the battery often runs out before its time for bed. Hence the need for a long cable.

My past experience with non-OEM cables hasn't been good. They usually fail to either charge the device, or sync to a PC/Macbook. So, I looked past the cheaper cables, and thought this one sounded okay. Still a bit dubious, I ordered it and it arrived pretty quickly (seller recommended!).

It arrived, I plugged it in, half expecting the worst, but it worked! And seemed to work well, charging at a good rate. And the plug seemed fairly secure in my iPad 3 (perhaps a tad less so than the OEM cable, but still fine). So, to date, I'm a happy camper!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot stuff, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this for nearly a year now, and it performed well, with accurate times, temperatures and humidity readings. The indoor base station and outdoor monitor are separated by a floor, three walls and around 20', so the range is also good. One of the main reasons I selected it is that the sensors were apparently made in Switzerland, rather than the more usual down to a price Chinese rubbish, so the good performance is not surprising.

The casing, display and buttons also seem to be of good build quality for the price. The device has been totally reliable and economic in use, still being on the same batteries (in base station and separate remote temperature/humidity monitor). The only fly in the ointment is the limited spec compared to some of its competitors - for instance it has no forecast capability.

Anyway, if you're looking for dual indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity monitoring, then I'd recommend this as a good choice.

Wish I'd got one of these earlier, as it's had loads of uses since purchase. It is a good size with a well sized/placed handle, and has a rigid yet light construction. The price was good, and delivery very quick. The only slight downside is that a Stanley knife blade tends to cut into the aluminium if you're not careful (when forming a guide line for a saw).
