Braun Oral-B  S185353 Sonic Complete  Rechargeable Power Toothbrush
Braun Oral-B S185353 Sonic Complete Rechargeable Power Toothbrush

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Vibrations, 8 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered during the postal strikes, the first order/package still hadn't arrived after a 2-3 week wait. Amazon very kindly dispatched another which arrived immediately. So what happened to the first one? Goodness knows - either it's still sat in a sack on a postroom floor somewhere, or a post office temp is now enjoying it without having paid a penny!

So, onto the brush - it's marvellous! I preferred the small round heads of the average Braun just because they're smaller and easier to get places, but this does seem to do a very good job without you even feeling like you're cleaning your teeth. It was quite a shock when I first turned it on, as it makes a noise like an slightly angry hornet and barely moves at all. Gliding it around your teeth, with nothing but a buzz and barely any action just doesn't seem like it would clean your teeth at all, but once you stop, you realise that they do feel cleaner and after nearly 2 weeks of using it now, I can confirm that my teeth are that bit brighter and some of the staining at the back of them is now starting to fade.

The full charge has lasted 12 days rather than the 14 days they advertise, so you would still need to pack the charger if you're going away for 2 weeks. The travel case is plus though - shame it hasn't been designed to hold a small tube of toothpaste too!

I preferred the overall design of my old Braun 3D Plaque Remover (which lasted 8 years incidentally!), which was sleek and white with light grey detailing, whereas this is a bit too fancy and toy like with it's glittery blue effect and flashing lights. The only other dodgy thing about it is that I've already had to explain more than once what the strange humming sound is coming from my bathroom (!!), but if you can deal with that - buy one - it's great!


Nexxus Silicone Case for Sony Ericsson W810i

4.0 out of 5 stars Extra hole required, 3 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect product for giving your phone just enough protection and bounce if you drop it - as I do all the time! I did have to cut an extra hole in the silicone for the navigation wheel at the top of the keypad though, as when trying to select the functions on the outer section of the wheel, the silicone kept depressing the centre button of the wheel. Carefully cut though, you would never know it wasn't made like that and I'm now very pleased with the product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners, 5 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're gay and not 'out' or generally inexperienced and curious, then this will be an interesting film for you. Other reviewers have described this film to be almost incredible - I would disagree though, possible because I don't fit into the categories above. It is a well made, acted and thoughtful film, but is also quite 'old-hat' nowadays - unless as I say, for you the topic and/or lifestyle is a whole new world you've yet to discover fully. Although this is far more attractive to watch, there's nothing in this film that isn't in Eastenders or similar these days.

Sales and delivery of the product both excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second Review, 5 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've already reviewed this purchase once, so my comment now is; why am I being asked to review it a second time?

My original review was along the lines of: DVD for present so cannot review the film. Sales, service and delivery all excellent, but packaging was intentionally openable to enable Royal Mail to check contents - but this allowed them to also see the invoice and therefore personal details - not good!

5.0 out of 5 stars League table, 26 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love And Dancing (Audio CD)
Bought this to replace an old cassette copy. It was the same price as the mp3 download, so thought I might as well have the physical thing, to have that and be able to download my own mp3 from that if I wanted to.

Price, service, delivery and product all rated highly in the League table.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet dreams, 26 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a treat, to be lulled to sleep by Radio 4 set on very low volume and then to be woken by a CD of my choice (currently a gentle lilting tune sung by a Bulgarain Womens Choir) at a much more appropriate volume for getting up.

It's hard to fault this machine, as it does everything it says it will, which is quite a lot. Because it has so many options though, like being able to choose different alarm volumes on several different alarms, it's a bit of a rigmarole to go through checking you've set everything correctly. All this is what I wanted though, so I can't grumble. Both Brightness and Contrast of the display can be tweeked to your hearts content and the light sensor dims it all automatically when you turn your room lights out.

This is no boom box though, don't expect a deep, rich sound. It is very clear though, far from tinny and probably better than that of many clock radios. I think the only potentially annoying thing about this machine is the very slow rising of the CD lid - press eject and then go check out your crows feet in a mirror or something - by which time, if like me you have more than a few to check out, it will have fully opened!

Delivery was wonderful - I opted for the free super-saver delivery, as there was no particular urgency. Quite unexpectedly though, it arrived at 7pm one evening, (if memory serves) 48 hours after ordering and approximately 48 hours before it was even due to be dispatched - can't fault that!

If you have to be woken by an alarm every day like me (which I'm sure has a slow ill-effect on your day/week/life), it's worth spending 80+ to be woken by calming music of your choice and have all the other advantages of this machine.

Amazon and PURE both fab!

As stated by Mountain, these cables are indeed very strong/heavy duty (and literally heavy!) and as other reviewers have mentioned, they do clear up picture interference problems. Highly recommend them and can't fault the service provided by both Amazon and Mountain.

This review is from: Holding Trevor [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
As this was a gift for someone else, I can only comment on the service provided by Amazon - and that was simply excellent as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky beauty, 2 Feb 2009

This review is from: Scott Matthew (Audio CD)
Excellent service as always from Amazon. I'm afraid I'm not enough of a poet to begin to describe Mr Matthew's album, except to say that I believe I have sufficient knowledge to know that both his music and his lyrics are sheer poetry and just beautiful - in a funny looking, unshaven, odd sort of way!
