4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as illustrated, 27 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good price (£12), works OK, looks smart, but what you see is not what you get. Disappointly, the item supplied had a straight rather than a right-angled plug at the computer end, so it puts more strain on the socket (which repairers will tell you is a weak point in many laptops). So one star off for that. Less importantly, the connection at the transformer end is also straight rather than as illustrated, and hard-wired rather than what looks like a plug and socket in the illustration.

A word of warning - when it gets hot, the flat design, with the base being a higher percentage of the total surface area, means that if it is sitting on an insulating surface such as a carpet or bedclothes, the heat will not dissipate as well as traditional higher profile transformers. So make sure it sits where the heat can escape.

5.0 out of 5 stars This item should be at the top of Amazon's agenda, 11 Jun 2014
I enjoyed reading this title, and believe it contains an important message for Amazon and other employers.

Hopefully it will soon be replaced by an updated version: "Amazon pays living wages to their workers"


Spiratronics Quartz Clock Movement Module
Spiratronics Quartz Clock Movement Module
Offered by Electromart-UK
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars restart the clock ..., 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Did the job, replacing the mechanism of a favourite clock - spindle long enough etc. The tool supplied was not particularly well suited to its task of tightening the nut (maybe designed for use with other kits as well?) - but I suspect most people would have a small spanner or pliers that worked better.

Mens Jarrow Suede Look Mules Slippers Brown Size 11
Offered by The Slippers Shop
Price: £12.68

4.0 out of 5 stars good value, but note the provisos ...., 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a few days wear, beginning to develop mild crease marks across the upper, and the bit at the heel is getting a little flattened, but otherwise seem quite robust for slippers that only cost eight quid - only time will tell how well they last. As others have said, if in any doubt about what to order, go for the larger size. I normally wear 10 or 11, and ordered the 11, but suspect that 12 would not have been too large.

4.0 out of 5 stars good value, 1 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At this price I don't need to worry too much about the filter being damaged. Which is just as well, since I rely on lens filters to protect my lens - mostly because lens caps get in the way if secured or lost too often if not.


PSYCHEDELIC RETRO 70s STYLE LONG SLEEVE FLOWER POWER HIPPIE SHIRT - UNIQUE - XXL
PSYCHEDELIC RETRO 70s STYLE LONG SLEEVE FLOWER POWER HIPPIE SHIRT - UNIQUE - XXL

4.0 out of 5 stars unique, 1 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought this unique shirt, it is of course now out of stock, so assuming it stays unique, you will not be buying this design.

Should you be buying another from the same supplier, note that while XXL items normally fit me easily, I wouldn't have liked this to be any smaller ... so if this is typical, and you are in any doubt about size, go for the larger option.

4.0 out of 5 stars good value for an individually switched extension, 1 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of course, you can get much cheaper extension leads without switches, but £6.49 is not a lot to pay for the added convenience and possibly safety and economy of switched sockets (e.g. for teenagers where the relatively energetic task of unplugging chargers is a step too far, but something as minimal as flicking a switch is a more realistic objective)..

5.0 out of 5 stars album length track - great music at a bargain price, 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not the biggest fan of big band jazz, but I loved this.superb version of Rhapsody in Blue. I suspect that Gershwin would have approved. If you have any inclination to download the track, then I don't think you will regret spending your 89p :-)

3.0 out of 5 stars a little bit of a disappointment, 1 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a kindle guide to Bordeaux and the surrounding area. I knew that this was an extract from the Rough Guide to France, and it does only cost a couple of quid, so I was expecting quality rather than quantity information. To some extent, that is what you get - short but informative snippets about the highlights of the area.

You will need to look more widely for more in depth local information. I looked at a couple of other kindle guides, which seemed to provide a little more local colour on cuisine and history, but not as much other information, being only a quarter of the size. There was also one which looked like a quirky translation of a French language guide.

I have always found Rough Guide maps to be one of their strengths, but not so on the kindle version. They are all quite compressed graphics rather than clear vector maps. Mostly barely readable, and the one I wanted most, the Bordeaux map, was particularly poor - it is impossible to read most of the street names, even when zoomed in, and the alphanumeric location markers are indistinct grey blobs in fuzzy black circles.

Having looked around the internet, it is possible to get maps, tourist brochures and local info from a variety of sources, which when put together, give you most of the information in this book, sometimes in more depth. If you are prepared to spend time collating them, that could save you a couple of quid. If not, then this is a handy volume to download - but you will need to get a decent Bordeaux map from somewhere else!

5.0 out of 5 stars hip hop music for the mind and body, 16 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Survival Story (Audio CD)
Intelligent music that grabs your attention - not for background listening. Excellent follow up. There is not a handlebars to get instantly into your head and refuse to leave, but plenty that will grow on you. Love the use of instruments and the lyrics with a conscience. Great sound and sound music.
