3.0 out of 5 stars Except why sell it on amazon when it doesn't work with amazon prime, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy enough to install and they even supply an HDMI extension dongle thingmijig for those tellys that might need it. Requires its own power source so make sure you've got a spare plug socket close by as it's not that long a cord. Set the HDMI source on your telly, download the app to your phone and the chromebrowser extension on your laptop while you're at it so that you can cast to both. A few clicks and screen presses and hey dingo it's up and working. Just don't expect it to work with Amazon prime instant video. They really need to sort out their politics and policies for the good of the customer because that is properly irritating. I had to remove my HDMI lead in situ which I would plug into the laptop to view amazon instant prime films my telly. The other HDMI socket is already in use for the telly box of another supplier. My TV only has 2 HDMI sockets and they're not that easily accessible so it's a faff and a bother switching sources outside of the two. In fact now that I think about it some more as I write, that is going to cost you another star, google and amazon, you're down to 3. Hmphf!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works but pricey, 10 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Jumbo Fabric Drawer Silver
I thought somehow that there must be more than one drawer for the price paid, but no. Arriving flat-packed, easy to set up and works very well inside the hanging shelving. Drawer is roomy and deep and secure. It's over-priced and I haven't bought another, though I would like to have more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and functional, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Couldn't believe the price of this and bought warily but so far so good. This is an integrated cover which means you remove the back of your phone to fit this one. I'll have to see how much protection that affords when the phone (inevitably) gets dropped. The inclusion of of the screen protectors and stylus make it all the more value for money. Worth a punt for £1.99!

3.0 out of 5 stars Never a wall flower wearing these, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Boots that always attract comment, mainly positive. They are slightly heavy but good and sturdy. They take some wearing in. Wish they did them in half sizes as I've had to use insoles. You won't go unnoticed unless wearing these unless at a DM convention. This pair came with 2 sets of laces, a black pair and a fancy red ribbon pair. They will last for years.

3.0 out of 5 stars easy wardrobe shelving...., 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These look good in a wardrobe once you fold items neatly, very handy shelving/ drawers for a wardrobe. The shelf bottoms can bow if over weighted so I wish the bottoms were stronger, especially for the price paid but the compartments are roomy. It's still holding together after a few years but really looks better, and sturdier with the drawer inserts which are lovely and deep BUT sold separately AND are pricey for what they are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wipeup and out, 10 Dec. 2013
Wash before first use. It kinda smells of warehouse but really very handy after that. Great to take to the gym or away with you as it packs up small, dries you off quickly and then dries itself quickly - no more sopping wet terry towels. It is like being wrapped in a large microfibre cleaning cloth but should you have a spill....well... it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars mmmm new shoes!, 14 Jun. 2013
Seriously comfortable instantly. The day after I bought them ,having worn them all day, I did a 5 mile walk home. A warm day too and there was no rubbing, no soreness on the ball of the foot or pressure on the little toes. Feet kept cool and comfortable and well supported. I want them in a multitude of colours. The sizing is very generous. Normally I'm a size 6 but these in a 5 were much better so you might want to go a size down from your usual. A really pleasing purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterclass in short story telling, 5 Jun. 2013
I already liked the author's style having read Half of a yellow sun. This collection of stories is a really satisfying read. Each different, with different voices and a diversity of characters drawn so well you wonder how she can be in so many heads. This is literature, accessible literature that gives an insight into Nigerian characters without cliché. It leaves you wanting more in the way that you feel when you've had a good, filling, tasty meal; You know you don't need anymore to eat and you're happy with what you've had but if there was a little more pie, you wouldn't be able to resist it.

3.0 out of 5 stars shame about the sizing, 5 Jun. 2013

Far too large to be a size 6 as advertised. Otherwise would have been good deck shoe for summer strolls in town or by the beach. Sturdy, substantial but veering toward the heavy. Quite liked them though but had to return because of the sizing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not upto scratch, 5 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually like Rocket Dog shoes, I have several pairs but these are just a bit wrong. The upper appears to be that horrid synthetic pretending to be leather that you get in the low-end high street outlets. The sizing is out. I'm a 5.5 therefore mainly have to buy 6s which are that little bit big. These were toe-crampingly tight. The toe of the shoe is cut so shallow that the little toe would struggle to stay inside , yet the big toe is cramped. This also exposes the individual toes, which is never a good look unless you're wearing sandals. Who wants to see the bottom of toes showing. I needed flats that had support, that weren't silly ballet pump style. This is not that shoe.
