1.0 out of 5 stars Mine did not work at all, 14 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The scale in this gauge is printed on a piece of lightweight lightly-oiled plastic. As soon as the gauge was placed under pressure (35 PSI), the plastic plunger just shot out to the end of the scale. I could not find a way to get a proper reading out of it.

It's pointless trying to return an item at this kind of price, so it's in the bin where it belongs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed on first use, 4 Jan. 2015

First impressions were of a very flimsy mechanism. A label on the reacher indicated that it should cope with loads up to 1 kg. After picking up just two items of a much lower weight than that, the reacher totally failed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very short life, 23 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I first got this hair trimmer I was quite happy with it. The first couple of trimmings went happily enough. Just 6 months on and the thing is on its way to the recycling centre. In spite of carefully following the instructions for oiling the cutter, the trimmer now catches and pulls in the hair and at times the cutter stops moving altogether. In the 6 months that we've had it, it has been used only a few times. We chose it partly on the reputation of the brand, but this brand is off our list now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for basic needs, 22 Nov. 2014

Wanted a basic disk drive to replace a defective one in an old laptop. This drive arrived quickly and was easy to install. I'm very happy with the performance. Delivery was by courier with signature required, hence the high price of post & packing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality for the Price, 1 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived amazingly quickly. Easy to calibrate with a small screwdriver (provided) and the scale is easy to read even in artificial light. The eyepiece rotates to focus the scale. Provided with a sturdy grey plastic box with protective foam inside. A small pipette is also provided to make it easy to collect samples.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do you have the knack?, 4 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's a definite knack to changing the lenses of these glasses. The lenses basically have hooks at each end that fit into grooves in the frames. Just pulling and pushing will likely have no effect. The trick is to bend the frame slightly around the bridge. I wouldn't want to change the lenses too frequently for fear of ending up with a loose fit.

Apart from that I find the glasses comfortable and quite smart. The lenses are hopefully large enough to keep bugs out of my eyes while I'm cycling. The lenses seem to be free of imperfections.

2.0 out of 5 stars By No Means Water Tight, 30 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let's face it, if we intend to store salt in a container, then we don't want water coming in. Before putting salt grit into the bin we decided to leave it out for a couple of days as a test. Well, even though weather has been by no means inclement, the box has water inside. The weakness seems to be the hinges at the back of the lid.

We will keep it and put a cover over the top to exclude water.

In fairness, typical salt bins are really expensive. Question is... are they more watertight? I for one do not know.


SKS Mud Guard Xtra Dry MTB - Black, 26 Inch
SKS Mud Guard Xtra Dry MTB - Black, 26 Inch
Offered by Adventure Northumberland

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not so versatile in terms of fitting, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fairly easy to fit this item, although if you have your saddle set quite low there may not be enough room. Also, in my case I cannot fit both this mudguard and my rear light at the same time. Note also that you will need a 5mm hex key (Allen key) to tighten the joint that holds the mudguard at your chosen angle, otherwise it's likely that the mudguard will drop against the rear tyre.

A plastic tensioner with a piece of strong woven fabric of clamps the mudguard to the frame. Whether this will stand the test of time remains to be seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing little gem, 5 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Birds of Britain (App)
This was actually the first Android app I've ever purchased and I'm really pleased with it. Over 220M of data. Not only great pictures of the featured birds, but also recordings of their songs. It's easy to scroll through an alphabetically ordered list of the birds with thumbnail images.

For less than a pound, this is really a nice offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars No hassle replacement, 31 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm by no means a car mechanic, but at least wanted to replace my own wiper blades. These were exactly the right size and dead easy to fit. The sweep is good, leaving the screen clear throughout.

The blades arrived in sturdy individual boxes.
