Tacwise A54 Heavy Duty Hammer Tacker
Tacwise A54 Heavy Duty Hammer Tacker
Price: £33.08

4.0 out of 5 stars used for shed roof, 28 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I used this to attach roof felt to our shed roof and it did a better job than tack nails.You load the staples and use it with a hammer action.It takes some practice before you get the hang of it and you perfect your aim.My dad,no longer with us,would have used this every day in his jod as a roof tiler as roof felt was was replaced with more of a bin bag type of material and this would be ideal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to recommend., 27 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I tried the Buff colour today on my middle-aged skin,applying it at 10am and checking it again at 4pm.It was still looking good,it didn't cake or give a dry look.I found it to be dewy and the colour was perfect for my pale skin tone,no horrible orange base as found in some other foundations.I applied the Revlon over a light moisturiser,as is my regime,and was pleased with how it lasted through the day.It's lightweight,natural looking,easily blending into my skin.I will definitely purchase this Product so easy to recommend.


AATU 80/20 Chicken Dog Food, 1.5 Kg
AATU 80/20 Chicken Dog Food, 1.5 Kg
Price: £14.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Top,top quality ingredients., 24 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Amazing,top quality dog food,80% chicken,20% fruit and vegetables,no preservatives,gluton free.Just one issue,our Westie treated it like every other kibble we've given him,he smelt it and walked away without eating it.As with all other kibbles,we had to add fresh meat for him to eat.So 4* for the quality of the ingredients but not 5* as our dog maintains his title of being the fussiest dog on the planet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tablets with one reservation., 24 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I see Finish as the brand leader and was delighted to try the "All in 1 Max" variant out.The resealable packet states 10 actions,cleaning,pre-soak,tea stain removal,salt function,rinse,machine limescale protection,grease cutting,low temp,filter protection and glass protection.More expensive than some rivals,the product offers a lot for your money and is recommended by a huge number of dishwasher manufacturers.Obviously,the results are superb as you'd expect from a premium brand.My concern,and the reason for 4*,is the warning that the product contains subtilisin,widely used as a stain cutter,but a possible cause of an allergic reaction.Bearing in mind,you'll actually handle these tablets as they're not individually foil wrapped,i'd have thought the manufacturer would have avoided this ingredient.


Tacwise Z3-140 Staple Gun. Staple Gun Tacker
Tacwise Z3-140 Staple Gun. Staple Gun Tacker
Price: £14.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose., 22 Jan. 2015
I tried the Staple Gun with Tacwise staples on carpet and on roof felt on the garden shed and was very disappointed.The staples stayed proud failing to penetrate the wood underneath.With less than ten staples fired,one fired at an angle through the plastic slide and i couldn't remove it rendering the gun useless.It's my opinion that the design is poor and the plastic slide should be metal.As the product stands,it's not fit for purpose and definitely not one i could recommend.


Webbox Dream Bone Chicken Medium, 79 g, Pack of 10
Webbox Dream Bone Chicken Medium, 79 g, Pack of 10
Price: £24.45

4.0 out of 5 stars An edible plaything, 22 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Our Westie enjoyed this Medium bone though i would say it's a little large for his mouth.It's about 5" long,2" dia on the ends where the bone is folded over with the main dia about 1".Our dog always plays with any biscuits we give him before eating and it was the same with this bone.For 5 minutes,he knocks it about as a toy before eating.He appeared to enjoy the taste and ate half of it before getting bored and moving on.The bone is odourless and didn't send him into a mad half hour as other products have done in the past due to additives though this does contain additives.It contains cereals,20% chicken,no rawhide,vegetables and minerals and is 99% digestible.Later our dog returned and made off with the last half which suggests he liked it.


Tacwise 140/12mm Stainless Steel Staples (Box of 2000)
Tacwise 140/12mm Stainless Steel Staples (Box of 2000)
Price: £6.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose., 22 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I used these staples with a Tacwise Staple Gun and wasn't impressed at all.To be fair,the Staple Gun wasn't up to the job with one staple jamming in the plastic slide and i couldn't remove it rendering the gun useless.I tried the staples in carpet and on a felt roof on the garden shed.The staples stood proud in both cases failing to penetrate the wood underneath.I know this review is against trend but i think the designers need to go back to the drawing board as i couldn't recommend this Product and have thrown it in the recycling bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sean Duffy & McCrabban are back in a book easy to recommend., 17 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Sean Duffy is back in the fourth book of the series.When i first picked up the book,the paper seemed better quality then used in the previous books,the paper shinier and slicker and so it was with the storyline.A book showing Sean is still a drinking,coke using,a rough around the edges type of character who gets things done by sticking two fingers up to authority.The story is about missing missiles,gun runners,the paramilitaries against each other but occasionally working with each other where there's common ground.There are murders and suicides that don't add up.Sean has his usual encounters with the ladies but there's no smut and the books are all the better for that.It's not a blockbuster type of read,just constantly entertaining and interesting with a good,believable ending.I've read all four books in the series and the books get better with this definitely the best to date.Easy to recommend and Sean must surely appear in a television series shortly.

5.0 out of 5 stars great product,highly customizable,recommended, 14 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
McAfee Internet Security is a good little package. Once you open the physical box, you'll find a card which has a serial number printed on. Follow the instructions and you'll be able to sign up, enter the serial onto the McAfee website and download the installer.

Once you've installed McAfee Internet Sercurity, you'll be able to update the software and you'll be presented with a large window which lets you configure the software. You'll be able to view your subscription, how long is left, how many licenses you've used (you get 3 with the product). You'll also be able to choose how updates are installed, automatically or manually.

Now, the main bit you will want is the Virus and Spyware Protection part of the software. You can do a full scan, have real-time scanning on so your computer will continually scan new files as your computer uses them in order to keep you safe. This product includes a firewall which i've left as default but it seems to be very customizable (there's even a lockdown mode to stop all internet activity).

There is an option for anti-spam and a site-advisor which reports sites which are known to be bad before you actually visit them. The parental controls is a great feature which lets you block via categories. Want to block gambling sites? Just add the 'Gambling' block to your profile and any sites you go to which are known to host gambling content will not load when you visit them.

Overall this is quite a complete product with extensive options. It looks as though it has been designed for basic users and advanced users too. One thing to note: You may have to right click on the shortcut and run the product "As administrator" in order to access some of the options available. This in itself is a security measure. Recommended.


Flick Spot-on Flea Treatment
Flick Spot-on Flea Treatment
Price: £13.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Appears to be a very high quality Product.Easy to apply., 5 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We apply Flea Treatments to our dog on a regular basis as a preventative measure against ticks as he has a tendency to roll around in the grass.This treatment is supplied in a box containing instructions and three individually foil sealed pippettes.You tear the foil to get to the pippette and then snap the end to allow the liquid to flow out.The liquid is applied to the back of the neck where you part the hair so the liquid can run onto the skin and be absorbed by the glands.Easy enough.This time of year is the wrong time to provide definitive results of how this Treament works but the packaging is of the highest quality which bodes well as there's no sign the manufacturer has skimped on anything.Impressive and user friendly,easy to recommend.
