A lovely piece of kit. Very easy to put together and connect up, it was up and running in a few minutes. It's also easy to carry around as you work. I bought this for home use, mainly to tackle my patio, which was developing patches of black algae that get slippery in wet weather. The T-50 head (included with this version) was brilliant at scouring the patio surface and it saved me many hours of scrubbing several square metres with a brush. It would be ideal for cleaning up decking, too. The jet nozzle is surprisingly powerful, it makes a great cleaning lance - it spruces up garden ornaments, trellis work, flower pots and anything else that doesn't move out of the way in time! One tip - wear Wellington boots or similar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good replacement for original battery, 27 July 2013

Slotted this into my flagging HP laptop easily, as a straight replacement for the original. Having followed the instruction leaflet by conditioning the battery (fully discharge & recharge for the first few times), it seems to perform well with at least as good a charge capacity as the original battery when new. Reasonable price and quick delivery.

I'm really pleased with this, it extends as far as I need and I did not find it too heavy or unwieldy. I was surprised at how easy it was to make cuts through 15-20mm branch wood at high level, the blade is sharp (well, it is new) and the pull chord leverage action is smooth. It's a nice piece of kit to use and will save me a lot of faffing about with loppers at the top of a wobbly ladder in future. I have not tried the saw attachment, but it looks easy to fit and use.

Very straightforward to fit, half an hour with a screwdriver to swap out the old defunct fridge door hinges and fit these. Now I don't need to buy and install a new fridge - for a while at least - so I'm pleased with that. Note the different part numbers for top and bottom hinges before you start the job. These hinges appear to be genuine quality parts, fast delivery as well.

I bought this inexpensive replacement for the original Nokia battery that came with the phone. The new battery gives similar performance to my old one - not when new, but as it is now after 2-3 years of decay. From fully charged, in a hardly used handset, it lasts a couple of days (during which the handset display indicates full or almost full battery charge) before dying away steeply to zilch towards the end. As a battery it works, but nothing like the new original battery supplied when the handset was new. So, 2 stars because it was cheap but you get what you pay for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brass door bell push button, 27 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found it was easy to fit, although you do need to cut or drill a shallow round recessed hole behind it (if there wasn't already one behind the previous push button). It looks quite smart with a clean simple shape and a nice brass finish. The push button has a good positive feel to it. Good value and mine was cheaper than in the shops. I even bought a second one for another front door.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good performance, will buy again, 23 Dec 2010

Performs significantly better than other brush heads that I have used (with Oral-B Truimph 4000 base unit), teeth and gums do feel cleaner and with no bleeding. Use with Sensodyne F for a few days if you experience sensitivity problems due to receding gums. Brush head elements do seem to get deeper into the trickier crevices a bit better. However, using these won't completely replace the need for floss or inter-dental brushes (those mini bottle brush thingies) that dental hygienists recommend - so not quite 5 stars. I find these heads started to lose their 'edge' after about 3 months of regular use, which is fair. Keep an eye on the Amazon price, as it seems to see-saw a fair bit; stock up with spares when there's a bargain to be had.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and limited lifetime, 10 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this device two years ago for occasional walking in the UK. Firstly, the positive: it will tell you accurately where you are as a numerical display, with an option for displaying your OS (Ordnance Survey) grid reference, and display tracks, distance covered etc. It has decent satellite reception under tree cover, in gullies etc. You can upload tracks to your PC and import them into other mapping applications (such as Fugawi 1:50,000 OS UK digital maps, which work well for me).
But ... the on-screen Garmin maps are, in my view, lamentable. The available maps from Garmin (at extra cost) will appear on the device's screen as crude line drawings and they don't seem to include off-road public foot paths. Do not expect anything like Ordnance Survey quality maps on your etrex Venture HC screen. You will still need to take a paper map with you.
The fun ended last week when my device "died" suddenly during a walk, while I was saving a newly created track to memory (a straightforward operation). Now, it will not power up again, and when connected to a PC, the Garmin WebUpdater utility will not recognise the device. This was in no way due to mechanical damage or moisture and the batteries were new. I have since learned via various message boards and forums (take a look at these before you buy one) that this has happened to a number of other Garmin users and may be due to software problems. The UK based Garmin Support telephone line was friendly but unable to talk me through any kind of repair; they did offer me an exchange refurbished device for £43.33 inc VAT. I may put that amount instead towards a different manufacturer's handheld GPS that includes OS quality maps, and keep my dead £110 etrex Venture HC as a paperweight.
