Vauxhall Corsa c '00-06 sxi Retro Fit Flat AERO VU Windshield Wiper Blades - Pair Windscreen Wipers

5.0 out of 5 stars Good wipers, amazing value, 25 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I mainly bought these for price and convenience, saving me a trip to halfords. I am on my second pair.
The blades clear the screen effectively when new and seem to last around 9 months.
Easy to fit.
Excellent value.


Sennheiser PMX60 Open Neckband Headphone
Sennheiser PMX60 Open Neckband Headphone

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable headphones - good for running, 26 May 2010
I purchased these headphones specifically for use whilst running. My evaluation is as follows.

Pros
+ Stay in place whilst exercising
+ Minimal presure on the ear makes them comfortable to wear for long periods
+ Cable length is ideal to reach your music player in a back pocket
+ Bright, clear sound quality

Cons
- Bass performance is poor compared to other similar price headphoens - e.g. Koss Porta Pro
- They leak noise - possibly annoying for other people
- The way the neck band hooks over your ears could interfear with your glasses, although I found wearing with wrap around sports sunglasses fine

Overall I recommend these headphones for use whilst out running. I would give them 5 stars if they delivered a bit more bass!

5.0 out of 5 stars Large capacity drive that works with Ubuntu, 6 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I highly recommend this drive as it offers a large amount of storage for the money.
The 5 year warranty offers piece of mind.

For those interested in Ubuntu, this drive works fine out of the box. I have purchased two of these drives along with a SATA PCI card to enable an old desktop, running ubuntu to be used as a NAS storage device. The drives are mirrored for resiliance, works a treat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Big, shiny and good value monitor, 22 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading up on a variety of sub £150 monitors I plumped for this 23 inch LG and am very pleased with it. It seemed to have the best specification for the money.
I am using the monitor with an old HP desktop running Ubuntu and plan to plug in my Vista laptop on occasions. I am not using it for graphics heavy applications, so can't comment on the high performance features but it meets my basic needs well.
It is very light and thin making it easy to lift into position and has a small footprint on the desk. The black glossy finish is good looking and seems like it will be durable.


Craghopper Ancho Short Sleeve Shirt
Craghopper Ancho Short Sleeve Shirt

4.0 out of 5 stars Tough, dependable short sleeve travel shirt, 17 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Craghoppers shirt is great for travelling in hot climates.

The main reason I recommend it is for the cotton construction, which is durable and being made of a natural fibre it does not retain oders like polyester shirts. I found the lose fit ideal in the heat. The shirt has an Sun protection rating of 20.

The only downside is the styling is a bit "boy scouts".

As usual with Craghoppers it is a good value purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy camera bag with some good features, 16 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this bag to store the Panasonic Lumix TZ6.

Pros
+ Offers good protection for the camera - padding and a rubber bumper. If you dropped it I am pretty sure the camera would be fine.
+ Two interal pockets for memory card etc. I also found this useful for bank notes
+ Sturdy velcro straps to clip onto your belt
+ Waterproof cover
+ Cheap price

Cons
- Getting the TZ6 in and out of the bag is a bit of a fiddle due to the tight fit
- The neck/body strap is a bit narrow - it wouldn't be very comfortable against bare skin

Overall I am pleased with the camera bag and would recommend it to others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight packable waterproof trousers, 21 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Berghaus Paclite Pants are an excellent piece of kit. They take mimimal space and weight in your rucksac, are easy to get on and off thanks to full length zips, are very breathable and waterproof.
On the downside; they are little more expensive than some rivals and they have no access to pockets (I expect that this is to keep the weight down). Overall if you want a light weight trouser this is the one to go for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little salad spinner, 3 Jan. 2007
This salad spinner is excellent. It dries herbs and salad leaves fast with a minumum of effort. The pump mechanism works a treat - much better than other spinners where you have to crank a handle round and round. It is compact and easy to store - ideal if you have a small kitchen. If you need to dry a lot of leaves all at once you may need the larger version.

I have owned the spinner for one year so cannot comment on long term durability, but the product seems to be very well made, so it should last well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Non stick roasting tin with rack, 2 Jan. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have owned this roaster for a couple of years and the durability seems good. The non stick coating is a bit scratched but remains non stick. The rack is very useful when roasting fattier meats like pork and lamb.

The one criticism I have is the large upwards pointing handles seem to get in the way sometimes. I have burnt my arms on more than one occasion! If you are careful with the handles this a good value purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good looking utensil holder, 17 Feb. 2005

This ia a large white ultensil holder. It has a stainless steel metal ring around the base. It fits a good selection of utensils and looks great in a kitchen with a white colour scheme. Excellent value.
