5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant., 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely brilliant. I knew what W8.1 was like before purchase having tried Microsofts free time limited evaluation edition. I was uing W7 pro before this. (and Vista)

You'll either get what W8.1 is about or you won't. For me, the gems are the fast start up (less than 15 seconds on my Dell laptop) and rapid shutdown. Its a super fast and responsive OS that (for me) installed effortlessly and quickly. Microsofts best thus far...

4.0 out of 5 stars funny yes, but such things detract from the quality, 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is impossible to review until it is actually called into use. I hope I never need it but if I do...

Four stars are based solely on the "apparent visual quality" of the product. The tube of rubber cement (for standard patches) is hilarious with its pigeon English, funny yes, but such things detract from the quality. Call Pmysiam or poisom comtrol. Im case of skim comtact we do not induce Yomiting".

Despite this, the contents look good and I have no doubt it should work as intended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic style and exceptional timekeeping., 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my third "Seiko 5". The first led a hard life (but still runs OK), the second has been worn daily for fourteen years and I felt like treating myself to a new one. This latest "5" uses the 7S26C movement, a refinement over each previous model, and out of the box the timekeeping is truly exceptional. The rate is around +7 seconds per 24 hours with no gain or loss when worn. The gain occurs when taken off at night and (currently) left "face up". I have yet to explore the other dial positions when it is at rest. The bracelet was easy to adjust (you need a small screwdriver of around 1.5mm) by simply sliding the pins out and removing links. The pins simply push back when you have decided on the correct length (just replace any pins by hand and then press on a hard surface to push them home). There is a fine adjustment on the clasp, which is actually of a different design to others in that it has two release buttons that must be pressed together to remove the bracelet. These are a good safety feature and work well.

The watch arrived well packaged (Seiko packaging with the watch on a cushion in a large double box, and then in the usual Amazon packaging) and was delivered by Post Office Mail.

I think it looks great and for me makes a change from the plain dials of previous watches. The "lume" (glow in dark hands and dial) was an important feature and like previous ones is extremely bright.

Criticisms... if this were a Patek Philippe or Rolex etc I would point out that the finger alignment isn't quite perfect, the hour hound is around 4 minutes ahead of where it should be... splitting hairs... well maybe considering the "5" is robotically assembled. There are many high end watches that are far far worse. Time keeping is certainly top drawer up to now, its perfection for a mechanical watch.

Thus far... highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best mice at the price., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was bought for a friend who loves it. The nano receiver (which is becoming the norm) was a great improvement over the bulky one of the previous mouse. I use one of these mice too and it gets some serious usage, probably several hours a day. I would say the durability was excellent. The tactile feel is good (soft surround) and operation of the "blue track" technology gives very precise control. Battery life is genuinely very good but not quite in the same league as some of the Logitech offerings.

5.0 out of 5 stars As described, they do the job perfectly., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When well known high street stationers want 5.99 for similar (and less quantity), these at under 1.50 including free delivery were a bargain. Delivery even over the Christmas period was prompt.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy contender to sit alongside the greats of the piano world, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having heard excerpts from this set on the radio I was expecting great things and I was not disappointed. Unlike so many up and coming artists, who often seem as if they must have something to prove, Igor Levit's interpretation is commanding and insightful. It sits happily with the likes of Brendel and Gilels and other titans of the repertoire. Thoroughly recommended (and its a bit of a bargain too).

4.0 out of 5 stars A product with no alternative., 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is specific paper for a specific job and there is no alternative. Amazons price was by the most competitive but as with all Variform products, they have you over a barrel and as such are overpriced.

4.0 out of 5 stars It does what it should., 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's not much to say. It does what it should at a reasonable price. The item was ordered as a "make weight" if I'm honest although we did need a new tray. Its fine, it came well packaged and does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb carpet cleaner., 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace an original VAX 3 in 1 machine that is frankly too much hard work to just use on the spur of the moment. I wanted something easy to use, and this fits the bill. Its easy to assemble out of the box although the VAX instructions are in my opinion appalling, being far to small. The box also seemed to lack any obvious "open this way up" type instructions which made it more difficult. Moans out of the way and this cleaner performs brilliantly. The rotating brushbar deep cleans the surface and the powerful suction removes most of the liquid leaving the carpets nearly dry. It is really easy to use, easy to empty and easy to clean, What made this an even better purchase was the fact that on the day I ordered this I saw the same cleaner on sale in a well known electrical superstore for 100 more than Amazon. A well known catalogue shop also had a similarly inflated price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but worth it., 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this at the same time as a VAX carpet washer. This product is very expensive compared to what can be bought locally but put into perspective and accounting for the fact that it contains enough solution to clean several carpets its probably worth it on balance.

The results were excellent with the carpets looking clean and bright. It also worked really well on a very good quality 100% man made carpet too. Only the price stops me giving it 5 stars.
