5.0 out of 5 stars Our goldfish love it. It stays floating, 15 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our goldfish love it. It stays floating, and does not make the water cloudy. But DO take care not to overfeed your fish. There should be no granules handling around after a few minutes, and if there are, you have given them too much.

1.0 out of 5 stars A very hot incandescent bulb that lasts no time, 18 Feb. 2016
I bought one of these from Maplin many, many years ago, and had no idea they were still being made. It *does* generate UV, but it generates the UV through an incandescent filament. The blue coating allows through the UV and some visible light, but keeps everything else in. And the heat - so much heat. This is an incandescent bulb burning at its most fierce - it needs to be just about on the point of melting to generate any UV at all. Halogen bulbs generate UV that is filtered out, and they use halogen gas, a high temperature crystal glass, and even then they have a limited lifetime. So this thing - you will be lucky to get half an hour UV from it, and that is if you don't start a fire in the meantime. Just don't bother. Really, don't.

2.0 out of 5 stars Look great, but very unstable, 16 Oct. 2015
Similar to another comment, these bottles do *not* have a stable bottom, and do not stand upright. They are not stable. I've bought them online, and seen them in local shops - all are the same. The rustic appearance is great though, so they *look* great as gifts. It is just a shame Kilner messed up with the manufacturing quality control - totally took their eyes off the ball here.

With some heavy felt glued to the bottom, they can be made to stand better. It is just a shame this needs to be done. I've not found a decent alternative anywhere else though, so have bought them anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars so will not be anything like 75W. Even 7, 2 Oct. 2015
I haven't bought this, but take issue with the title. It is hand-held and battery operated, so will not be anything like 75W. Even 7.5W is going to be an order of magnitude out. One or two watts at most. And "energy saving"? Compared to what? When the title lies like this, treat the whole product with caution.

4.0 out of 5 stars but has a skin-like velvety plastic film that does actually feel nice. However, 3 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plugged it in, and it worked on my reveal.js presentation immediately (Windows 7) with no further effort from me whatsoever.

My only concern is the soft-touch coating covering the plastic case. It is well built, but has a skin-like velvety plastic film that does actually feel nice. However, I have found this type of film on other products from China starts to break down after three or four years - it becomes foggy, very sticky, and starts coming off in parts, and attracting dirt in other parts. So the case - I suspect - has a limited lifetime, but I intend to get plenty of use out of it in the meantime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blisteringly fast, 3 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far, so good. It is blazingly fast - my five year old laptop feels faster than when it was new. Boot time + Firefox + Thunderbird with Windows 7 had got down to almost 15 minutes of disk chugging on the old hard drive. This gets the Windows boot down to 40 seconds from cold, and only another 35 seconds for FF and TB. Love it.

1.0 out of 5 stars They look okay on first glance, but treat them ..., 28 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They look okay on first glance, but treat them with caution. On plugging a UK plug in for the first time, I have found the metal clip inside the unit, that should lock against the earth pin, becomes detached. It then rattles loosely around the innards of the adapter. I can't imagine the result if it shorts the main pins inside.

Edit: I have opened one up to see what is going on inside. It looks like the earth connector should be glued down to a small plastic pin, or perhaps the plastic pin is supposed to be melted and compressed to hold the earth connector down. Either way, the metal earth pin is NOT fixed down, to falls out and rattles loose the first time a plug is put in. IMO they *could* be fixed, but without that fix, these things could be *lethal*. Don't touch them, please, unless you fully understand the issue, know how to dismantle them and how to fix them. For the average user - DO NOT BUY.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much water too fast, but with not quite enough force, 27 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay, but not as good as I had hoped.

The problem I find with this is the shear amount of water it squirts out. It is enough to fill your mouth in seconds, but there is no button on the wand to pause it or turn it off. This leaves you with one hand on the machine to be ready to turn it on and off, which can be a bit of a coordination struggle.

The jet is also not as strong as I had hoped. I have used a rechargeable hand-held device in the past, that took less water, squirted less water, but did it with much more force and removed a lot more from between the teeth. The batteries went in that one, unfortunately, and I was hoping this mains-powered version would at least be its equal.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible product, 12 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The colours looked great for the first couple of pages, then turn stripy, patchy, and insipid. The cartridges also leak toner everywhere. Never going for a cheap toner brand on Amazon again. A horrible experience.
