5.0 out of 5 stars Fab socks, 24 May 2014

These are just fabulous - it looks like someone spray-painted your feet yellow! They are extremely comfy socks too, quite easy to put on once you get the knack of it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not well-designed, 12 May 2014
Bought one at the beginning of April, but have returned it: as well as generating steam, it also spat out huge quantities of hot water - drenching both my ironing board and the item I was ironing - not helpful. To add insult to injury, MR says it does this in the manual! It also told me it needed de-scaling (a complex job) after just one month... Come on Morphy, you can do better than this.

Great for those quiet moments in a evening (if, like me you don't have a television) or for going to sleep to. Extremely relaxing.

I was hearing so many tracks off this album on Ancient.fm that I just had to buy the whole thing. Not dissappopinted. The performances are excellent and it's a great choice of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab singing, 28 Jan. 2014

Tremendous singing from the 1960s and 1970s - when such Wagner singing was at its best (think Bitgitt Nilsen). The sound quality is excellent and the performances just amazing. I love it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok product, 28 Jan. 2014

In principle this is a good little device - and it DOES work. However, it picks up interference from the dashboard in my car, so there is a constant background noise in use, so I don't really use it.
I don't know hoe one checks for such interference before buying, but if you can, do!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good little machine., 9 Jan. 2014

I bought two of these and quite like them. They operate quite quietly on the basic setting (sort of a quiet hiss). One could probably sleep through it, but I've not tried that yet. They seem to somehow 'sharpen' the air, which is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent unit, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a self-assembly unit, but easy enough to put together. Having done it single-handed, I can say it WOULD be easier with two!
It arrived incredibly quickly and looks good. It holds masses of CDs - around 360 I reckon. Am very pleased with it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tedious read, 22 Nov. 2012
I am really struggling with this book. I'm about a quarter of the way through and altho the story has potential, I just can't relate to the characters - they are so two-dimensional, especially Tom the builder.
I'd have stopped ages ago, but I was given the book by a friend and so feel I have to plough on a bit more. Blah!


Vax U89-P9-P Power 9 Pet  Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner

2.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly noisy machine, 17 July 2012
I spent quite a time looking at the specs of various vacuum cleaners and this one is pretty good at lifting dirt from the carpet.
BUT a) it is the noisiest cleaner I have ever had the misfortune of owning and b) it's a faff to empty out the dust chamber: yes, there's just a button to press to empty the main chamber but, if you have pets (I have one short-haired cat) you have to also dismantle two other bits to clear the dust out of them. An unecessary fiddle in my view.
Oh and the little suction-powered whizzy brush packed up the second time I used it...
I shall be getting myself another cleaner.
