5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: e-cloth - Window Pack - 2 Cloths
Been getting very frustrated trying to clean the windows without smears - squeegee, white vinegar, newspaper, so called microfibres clothes, etc but no joy. Saw reviews for these and thought worth a try even though a bit pricey (although £6 was a lot better than £10 in Waitrose). I know it's 'just' clothes but these are brilliant. Windows are sparkling, no smears that I can see, and it wasn't much effort. Need to use the second cloth before the water has completely gone for using the first cloth but try not to get it too wet but soon found a good technique. Used the clothes on a slightly scaled up shower screen and worked a treat. Highly recommended and I will look into the mop to see if it's suitable to clean the conservatory roof as that's annoying me as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bargain, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Paid £8 which is a bargain. OK they're not the greatest stands but they are stable, wires can feed up the pole, and they are fairly unobtrusive. Could do with other mounting options for the speakers as my Jamo A102s have a swivel bracket but no screw mount so they aren't as flush as would prefer but doing the job. Couldn't justify £40-50 that other makes charge so pleased with these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what I paid, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for £50. Not as good as say Cambridge Minx Air but not bad for the money (if you afford the extra £50 I would say go for Minx especially as it's portable..but then it is double the price so should be better). Can go quite loud without much distortion. Connects with Airplay fine and stays in sync with other Airplay devices which is good so I can have multiple speakers around the house.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure yet as weeds haven't died, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Applied as per instructions (took a long time as I had to refill watering can 35 times to cover my lawn). So far 2 weeks on the weeds seem to have got bigger and haven't died . Not sure how long it takes for them to die (nothing in instructions to indicate this as far as I could see). Perhaps I am too used to Resolva 24 hour....

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needed to put some weed killer on lawn. Had used round rose before but that wasn't too great. This was a good price so got it as it looked better. It was. Liked the ability to have 3 widths plus the concentrated nozzle for getting along patio grout lines. Also two fittings so it fitted all of my watering can spouts. Recommended for its purpose.

It's a large watering can, it's red and it does what it supposed to. What's more to say...shame it arrived after I needed to do the weed killing but that was my impatience

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure of accuracy, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as had a chest infection and when doctor tested my 'puff' strength it was down by 25% so put me on medication. I wanted to see if things were improving so got this as it looked like one he used. What concerns me is that if I try it several times in same session i get somewhat different readings (one might be 500 the next 575) and I don't think I am using it differently each time. Should also come with a chart with the graph of sex age and height and what reading should be but doesn't so needed to find that on the web.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to be doing the job, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wife's laptop is about 3 years old and battery was lasting about 45 mins max. This seemed to get good reviews at a reasonable price and having had Anker stuff before I felt more comfortable than with unknown names (not worth taking risks with batteries that might explode etc in my view). Fitted perfectly and now gives around 2.5 to 3 hours. Doesn't seem to get any hotter. So far so good. Time will tell how long it will be before performance deteriorates but to be honest if it lasts 2 years the laptop will need replacing anyway.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fit too tight, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wife dropped the old lid and although I glued it it seem to catch and made undoing it very hard. Saw this and thought it better to get a new one as she was struggling. However although it seems original it is nearly as tight to turn and is not much of an improvement so somewhat disappointed. Luckily it was pretty cheap so no great loss.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool screen, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brought to divide kitchen from breakfast room/dining area so that guests don't have to look at the washing up! Although pricey at just under £100 it was the most interesting screen we could find. We like the fact it has different scenes on each side- so it looks like you are entering a French cafe when you go through from Kitchen but when sat down it looks like you are in the cafe. It's pretty robust although light and easy to use and folds flat to about 4 inches deep so slides away in the corner when not in use. People are impressed when they see it and it does the job really well. Would recommend
