Kingston Technology 8GB DataTraveler DTLPG2/8GB - Silver
Kingston Technology 8GB DataTraveler DTLPG2/8GB - Silver
Price: 7.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the biz, 3 Dec 2013
Got one of these from my work to take material safely to and from work. Does this very well. Password is easy to set up and has the facility to give limited information if the stick was lost so it could be returned. Much more substantial than some of the plastic sticks kicking about. Transfer rate isn't blisteringly fast but is good enough for the type of data I use. Word documents, power point and the like. All in very good and very reasonably priced here at Amazon.Kingston Technology 8GB DataTraveler DTLPG2/8GB - Silver


Braun Satin Hair 7 HD730 Iontec Dryer
Braun Satin Hair 7 HD730 Iontec Dryer

5.0 out of 5 stars Efficient and ergonomic, 28 Nov 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having used cheaper hair dryers this was an absolute pleasure to use. It didn't make my hair frizzy as others have done and it dried it quickly. You have the option to turn on the ioniser if you want, as of yet I am unsure of what effect it has, but as a hair drier it is fantastic and seems to do good with or without the added ions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted...and not as painful as I imagined!, 15 Nov 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The last time I used one of these devices, the pain stopped me from trying them again. I was pleasantly surprised by this product. Yes, it still hurts a wee bit, but nowhere near as much as older versions, and quite bearable. The head glides smoothly over the skin and the added massage rollers did seem to help. The razor also works quite efficiently. It comes in a nice bag to keep it all tidy, and being rechargable has the benefit of not having any wires to get in the way during use. I haven't tried this in the shower, but I would imagine that might even make for a smoother experience. I've just got to get over that whole "using an electric appliance in the shower " thing. I'm sure it's a very useful feature!


The Complete Idiot's Guide to Microsoft Windows 8 (Complete Idiot's Guides (Lifestyle Paperback))
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Microsoft Windows 8 (Complete Idiot's Guides (Lifestyle Paperback))
by Complete Idiots Guid
Edition: Paperback
Price: 11.07

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful guide, 10 Nov 2013
Like most people, Windows 8 left me a bit cold. The tile interface, I don't think was designed with non touch screen computing in mind. That aside, it's what we have to live with until 8.1 is readily available.
The 'idiots guide' is very good. It's starts from the very basic, with the 'Start screen' that presents once your machine has first booted. It takes you through, step by step, assuming a high level of ignorance, and brings you out the end, much more savvy than you went in. It has the added bonus that if you've bought a tablet with windows 8, it will take you through that as well.
It covers all the things most users would want to do. Internet, email, social media, video, music, pictures etc. Towards the end, 'customizing your desktop', 'staying safe' and 'recovering from problems'. The book is not encyclopedic in its coverage, but it has a friendly, humorous style and gives the confidence to deal with Windows 8. After using it myself, I now actually quite like Windows 8 and think it's quite cool. There are still things that bug me, like charm bars appearing when I don't want them to, but it's stuff I can live with.
If you're struggling with Windows 8 this book would be a good addition to your library! Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product for sensitive teeth, 6 Nov 2013
I have tried various toothpastes, even some claiming to be for sensitive teeth. With most of them I end up with sensitive teeth. I really don't know why I bother changing from Sensodyne. A few days brushing with Sensodyne and my tooth sensitivity is gone. Really amazing. Maybe this time I will stick the tried and tested product and not be fooled by the advertising hype.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for long car journeys, 24 Oct 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a classic story which I think pretty much everyone will know from the famous film. It is often a disappointment to read a book and find it is not exactly the same as the movie, but there are only minor alterations and these certainly don't spoil the experience. Having the story read to you on CD means that it becomes more accessible for younger children as it is quite a difficult read for them. Perfect for a long journey and sure to set your child's imagination on fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 21 Oct 2013
Needed this to take some stuff of my drives before the pc goes into the workshop. Delight to use. Plugged it in to the USB port. It was instantly recognised and within seconds was up and running. Transfer rate is very good. The drive is so small and compact. Price is about the best for this size of storage. All around, an excellent bit of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant comedy and unbelievalbe value!, 17 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Words cannot adequately describe how good this box set is. Containing all the episodes available for the nine series and three Christmas specials, on 14 discs. (Works out at under 1.50 per dvd!) This really is a must for fans of the series. I don't remember laughing so much! Just love the humour and the wonderfully written characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great story from a wonderful author, 17 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Eighteen books down and I'm looking forward to next...that should tell you something.
Susanna Gregory is a wonderful author. Her stories are cleverly crafted to keep you guessing to the end. The characters are very well written and based on historical characters and are entirely believable.
This time our heroes, Matthew and Michael, are in league, albeit unwittingly, with the formidable Dame Pelagia (Michael's aunt), to stop Cambridge from being ransacked and set alight by 'wild fire'. A compound Matthew unwittingly created whilst trying to find a new recipe for lamp fuel...Great read. If you like Medieval mysteries this ticks all the boxes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great machine, 17 Oct 2013
Bought one of these to relieve the drudgery of washing dishes and it does just that. Mostly use it on the normal (Time 4 you) setting. This cleans glasses, dishes, cutlery and lightly soiled pans. Works wonderfully well. Glasses come out squeaky clean and no streaking. Intensive setting is for heavily soiled pans and the Rapid 35 for light soil. Eco setting works really well, but takes a long time.
Has an A energy rating on all settings. Great not to have to argue over who does the dishes. Now mostly it's who empties the dishwasher! Recommended machine if you're in the market for a new dishwasher.
