4.0 out of 5 stars Horses for Courses, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read the various reviews before purchasing (too bright-too dull etc). My wife and I are in our seventies and thus,especially at night, no longer have 20/20 vision to peer at alarm clocks so this meets our requirements perfectly and the binoculars have been put back in the bedside drawer whilst the clock sits on the dressing table. Cannot comment on the alarm aspect as,being retired, we do not use it.(still use small ones next to bed if required). Too bright at night? - not for us but perhaps if you are younger and like a very dark room

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but nothing special, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I paid extra for these after reading reviews of how good they were so maybe I expected too much. I have found them suitable but not so extra special as to justify the price

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cheap substitute, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I consider the toothbrushes for electric toothbrush units to be VASTLY overpriced and.of course, one of the reasons why you get such large discounts on the initial units. I found these a suitable substitute irrespective of whether, from a purists view, they are like for like quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars Run of the Mill Taste, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Taste has to be subjective. This coffee suits me as an everyday drinkable one. It does not,to my mind, have that "special" taste that hits you with extra flavour

What can I say. A good old fashioned "yarn".Stewart Graingers impersonation on film of Quartamaine(King Solomans Mines) was a typical "hollywood" one, bearing no relation to the character or the ambience of the era.I would recommend you try it.

5.0 out of 5 stars international adaptor, 30 Sep 2012

This is a very good product for the price.I needed it for some items I had purchased in New Zealand and it works perfectly. You do not have to "Force" the prongs in as you did with some I have had in the past.(More expensive ones)

4.0 out of 5 stars Garmin Nuvi European Map Lifetime updates, 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read previous reviews I was very aprehensive about ordering this for my nuvi 765 ( I am in my seventies - so no whiz kid) but I found it loaded with no problems over a 5hr period. Yes it said there wasn't enough space for all - but to clear photos and music(I had so little of either I wasn't bothered) I only choose Western Europe to load as I do not envisage going to Eastern Europe and after loading I still had 440mb space on unit. I do not know what the storage spaces are on different models. I would suggest you go for this especially from Amazon - some one third cheaper than Garmin direct.
Comments have also been made about very poor customer service from Garmin. I can confirm this is very very true - e-mails, forget them - promises on telephone rarely kept.I had to send a unit back for factory recall - they sent me somebody elses unit back with all their information on. I tried to get it sorted with no joy (even writing to the head of European operation in USA. No response at all - no apology - nothing. If you look at their site in USA you will find that even the Americans have the same problen even though it is an American company. Problem is I believe the Garmin is a better unit than TomTom and I do not know if their service is any better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable Book, 14 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North Star (Kindle Edition)
If I had read this 40-50 years back(I'm not in the first flush of youth!) I could have easily dismissed it as pure fictional imagination. Now - who knows?.
Did I LIKE the book - not really - gave me an uncomfortable feeling (prefer to get a bigger pile of sand to put my head in). Would I reccommend it - yes I would. Has almost as many twists as a game of pontoon!
Unbelievable? Is it anymore?
Who can say with all the revelations about newspapers/banks etc that are now part of the British daily diet

Good practical product for the price. Does the basic job of battery testing. If you want more sophistication do more research and be prepared to pay more.

5.0 out of 5 stars kitchen taps, 12 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this via the Amazon warehouse, it was described as used - like new. That is just what it was. Very pleased with this purchase as tap is impressive and purchased at a reasonable price. Would recommend this - especially if you can get it at a reduced price
