4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of Reach & Ample Suction, 16 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We are using this with a cheap 1400W cylinder vacuum cleaner and are not experiencing problems with suction.

The additional hole on the side is very useful for us because we can clean underneath heavy furniture with the crevice tool flat on its side. Note that there is a natural angle in the crevice tool. We found that side hole was on the wrong side to be able to use the bend in the tube to keep the tool flat on the carpet. Happily the end of the tool can be pulled off the tube and turned around without causing any damage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lump of Flat Metal Needed, 12 Aug. 2013
I acquired one of these from a different vendor. I have to agree with reviewers who have said how much better this aerial works when it is mounted on a piece of metal. For me, the formula that worked was to place it on a window sill on the flat head of a large metal spanner. Using an aerial amplifier also improved signal strength and the number of available channels.

It would be good if this aerial actually came with a metal base, but then ofcourse it would cost a lot more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality, 27 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We wanted a good quality handle for a beech effect cabinet that was originally supplied with a defective handle. The relevant door is only 15mm thick and we were a bit concerned whether this handle would fit, given the length of the supplied screws. In fact, this kind of thickness is probably ideal for this product. The screws must reach into the wooden handle since the metal feet are not attached to it. Hence this handle is not suitable for very thick doors.

The supplied cross-head screws fit easily into the threads in the handle.

The handle itself is nicely shaped and very smooth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective & Quiet Though Assembly Could Be Easier, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We needed a standard fan with swing feature to cool our medium sized lounge and being in the middle of a heat wave we did not want a long wait. This fan arrived in just 3 working days.

Assembly could have been easier, although the instructions were adequate. A small screwdriver is definitely needed. All the parts were present, although one of the small screws to retain the face plate on the front of the fan cage was distorted.

Once assembled it seems to work well. It's quiet and moves quite a bit of air even on the lowest of the three speed settings. The angle of swing is probably about 80 degrees.


DISHWASHER 3 IN 1 POWERBALL TABLET BASKET universal

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper than a New Dishwasher, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The tablet holder failed in our dishwasher such that it would not open during a wash cycle. We tried just putting a tablet in the cutlery holder in the bottom rack of the dishwasher but the results were not great. This tablet basket seemed a bit pricey for what it is, but it hangs readily from the bottom of the upper rack, right in the path of the water from the rotating sprinkler. It's easy to load with a tablet and the results are great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Straight from the Box with Linux, 3 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted this to provide extra USB ports for a ZOTAC ZBOX running Debian Linux (2.6.32). It's working fine without any driver issues.

Qualcast Panther 30 Hand Powered Cylinder Lawnmower (30 cm Cutting Width) (Old Version)

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Small Gardens, 3 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We previously had an electric lawnmower, but it always seemed to be more trouble plugging it in and making sure that the cable was not getting trapped in doors than to actually cut the grass.

This hand mower is easy to use, easy to clean and cuts very effectively. It takes up far less storage space than a power mower.

There's a certain amount of assembly to do when it first arrives, but most of that is quite easy. A degree of strength is needed to flex the handle enough to slide it into its mounting in the mower.

Whereas the product description talks about "a range of heights", there are in fact just three heights. For our lawn, which is basically flat but far from perfect, the default middle setting is fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Hard-to-Reach Hedges, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's easy to adjust the length of the handles, with each available position locking firmly.

Blades are nice and sharp and the hand grips are comfortable.

A simple plastic sheath for the blades is provided for safety in storage.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Suitable for Irons, 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this product for our steam generator iron. We have only used battery top-up water with this iron since we bought it. We had difficulty reordering the water we used to use and decided upon this 25l. pack. Within 2 weeks of starting to use it, our steam generator was spitting calc deposits. We tried putting some of the water in a saucepan and boiling it dry, and sure enough there was a significant deposit.

We decided to just throw the remainder down the drain.

A positive thing was that the product was delivered quite quickly, so some people might find this useful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've tried two out of the pack of four and am just throwing the rest in the bin. After cutting my lip with these things three times it is just not worth continuing. Aside from the risk of injury, they also feel as if they are scratching away at my teeth in a way that the genuine Oral B heads do not.
