Great quality, fits pretty much any smartphone and keeps it very simple. The foam pads hold your smartphone snugly. No complaints from me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality, great sound, a few problems with fit if you use for sport., 27 July 2014
Love this Jaybirds. Was so sick and tired of trying to listen to music on my 20min walk home and spending 5mins untangling headphone leads that I invested in these great, in-ear bluetooth speakers. They are simply brilliant. They connect quickly and easily to the phone every time you switch them on and the music quality is great. The only drawbacks for me are that they don't have an auto-off facility to save battery life (so you have to switch them on and off yourself) and the fit isn't perfect. I do a lot of running and it took a lot of experimentation to get the fit good (over the ear configuration with the biggest buds) but even then its not 100% perfect, such a shame they could have supplied shaped ear hooks that would have solved the problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book about the latest big Wall Street scandal., 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flash Boys (Kindle Edition)
Absolutely brilliant read. The story of how Brad Katsuyama realised how share dealing had become the latest Wall Street scam and set out to do something about it. Really compelling read and brilliantly put together, just amazing how Wall Street gets away this this time and time again and so soon after the sub-prime scandal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best guidebook from a beautiful country., 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love lonely planet guides. They are just so practical. They cover all the main sites, give great summaries and suggested routes and their descriptions of the site save you many a local guide book. The layout is clear, the pictures are colorful and inspiring and most importantly the book is well stitched and durable. The Montenegro and Dubrovnik book is no exception, our sole reference guide for a beautiful country. I never use the hotel sections (much easier to use AirBNB in advance - a great way to get cheap accommodation in the various old towns), but apart from that it's great.

P.S. Montenegro is a stunningly beautiful country, go. Such a great trip.


Bosmere 6-Seater Storm Rectangular Patio Set Cover - Black
Bosmere 6-Seater Storm Rectangular Patio Set Cover - Black
Price: £57.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality large rectangular table and chair cover set., 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great quality furniture cover, made from heavy duty fabric that fits well. Easily covers a 6 seats and the rectangular table. The elasticated ties make it very easy to secure and the supplied cover stand means its easy to get it sloping so no rain can gather. It's only been through a few thunderstorms, but generally very happy with the purchase.


Mustard Seed Screen Protector for Apple iPhone 5/5S
Mustard Seed Screen Protector for Apple iPhone 5/5S

2.0 out of 5 stars So much promise, but fails ultimately., 27 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having faffed around with phone screen protectors so much in the past, trying to get bubbles out and a properly aligned film, I had really high hopes for this pack. The supplied fitting frame looked like it would really help solve the problems. The first indications were good. The instructions were clear, the micro-fibre cloth was good and the supplied sticky plaster that you used to remove the last few specs from the screen was a great, effective idea that I'd never seen before. However, when you went to apply the film itself that's were the problems started. The instructions assumed that the film was already in the frame, but mine had fallen out, with no way to know how to put it back in. It was very unclear what way you were meant to use the frame and since they had only supplied one film, you had one shot at getting this right. Ultimately a complete failure for me and a complete waste of money. So much promise, but just as frustrating as all the rest in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best kids toothbrush., 24 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love this electric toothbrush. The heads are just the right size for a small kids mouth. The fact that the head vibrates (rather than rotates) makes it much less abrasive and pleasant for my daughter. The brush vibrates nicely and makes a noise every 15 seconds (or 30 if you put it on the longer mode) so they can track how long they've been brushing. Finally the changeable stickers are a nice touch, allowing them to personalise the toothbrush so they love it from day one. It also lasts ages on one charge so no need to have constantly plugged in.


Out of The Furnace [DVD] [2013]
Out of The Furnace [DVD] [2013]
Dvd ~ Christian Bale
Price: £7.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Stellar cast, ordinary movie., 18 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Out of the furnace is an engaging enough thriller but simply isn't compelling enough to keep you interested. The cast (Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck) is stellar, but there's not much you can do when the characters are so one dimensional and under developed. Overall I'd give it a miss.


The Gro Company Wall Stickers Hetty
The Gro Company Wall Stickers Hetty
Price: £6.45

3.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to the wall chart, but quite small., 17 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I already had the Gro Company Hetty Height chart that were a great addition to our children's play room, to give it some colour. These stickers were a good way to give some additional wall coverage. The stickers are good quality, but I was disappointed at how small and what a low surface area that they covered. For £12 I would have expected something bigger.

The tree for example is about half the size of the height chart tree.

3.0 out of 5 stars But what's it for?, 19 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As with all Trunki product, this travel toy box is solid and well made. To open it, you turn it upside down (wheels on top) undo the clips and remove the lid using the carry handle. All very simple, but unlike the excellent trunki suitcases, I really can't see what you'd use it for... The box is the wrong shape to fit on an airplane, there's no way to pull it along, the wheels are very small and pick up every bump. Perhaps useful for toys on a car-trip away, but other than that it feels not that useful unless you just want a small to medium sized toy box.
