Led Lenser A4 High End LED Torch
Led Lenser A4 High End LED Torch
Price: 11.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected...updated to useless, 11 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having looked at led lenser products they seemed to be well designed and thought out. This product I will have to say IMHO isn't well thought out. It looks well made, solid and heavy, but has one key flaw. The mechanism for turning the light on/off is a simple twist of the lens head. I have had a number of torches that operate similarly BUT with this lenser torch applying the smallest amount of pressure to the front of the torch, switches the light on....not ideal if you were planning on carrying it in a bag etc.
it's a shame that the device is left down in this way.

Update, after leaving it in my bag for a couple of weeks, i came to use it, only to find it dead....
2 durcell aaa batteries drained completely
therefore downgrading this to useless

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am sorry to say that I didn't like this book. tHe plot was interesting, but the shared authorship i feel didn't work, the different writing styles didn't gel for me, and just when i found myself getting into it in one chapter, the next chapter had a different author and i felt i had to start all over again. It was kinda like trying to read two books at the same time, but each on the same subject. Nope didn't like it

Excellent pair of kitchen scissors, deals with chicken, fish etc. without any issues. Comfortable to grip. The blades separate to allow washing. Would buy them again without hesitation

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok....I guesss, 26 Mar 2013

I got this for use in an audi a4. The product is fine, functional etc. One gripe though, i found it difficult to secure the bottom of it to the front seat as there isn't any points that you can tie the cords around or to.

Denon AH-C560R Mobile Elite In-Ear Headphones with 3-Button Remote and Mic

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent headphones, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
an impulse purchase (they are Denon and were on offer) I've used them on flights etc., and while I'll admit to not being the greatest fan of in-ear headphones (hence the impulse purchase), I've found them perfectly comfortable and quite good at noise isolation.
Their call quality (with an iphone 4s) is good, the external mic seems to be fine, at least no-one has complained about it......
All in all an Excellent pair of headphones for the money!


Cars and Trucks and Things that Go
Cars and Trucks and Things that Go
by Richard Scarry
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.24

5.0 out of 5 stars another Scarry story, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We got this along with "a day at the airport". Again my little loves it, looking for cars and figures on each page. Again you could say that the renditions of cars etc. are dated but in my opinion that doesn't matter. They were created in the mid 20th century so yes are out of date, but that doesn't take away from the story that's in very page. I think they are timeless and love to be able to get bigger Richard Scarry books.

5.0 out of 5 stars keeps him occupied, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I grew up with Richard Scarry books and loved them. This is a short story but still has all the elements you'd expect, fantastic pictures and situations. Some of the drawings of the vehicles can look quite dated now, but my little boy still loves it and its kept him amused for hours looked for characters/cars etc. For me its a trip down memory lane so equally as enjoyable for me
