Meguiar's Ultra Safe Wheel Spoke Brush
Meguiar's Ultra Safe Wheel Spoke Brush
Offered by AP Motor Store
Price: £7.66

3.0 out of 5 stars Works well and give a good result but..., 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm happy with the result but the handle fell off after a few uses. I've used it on spoked wheels and big chunky alloys and they all came up sparkling. It's possible to push the handle back on, but then it drops off again soon after.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for alloy and chrome wheels, 12 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Regardless of the product description, this is for coated wheels only (on which the product works very well). This is certainly not for polished alloy and chrome wheels.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for polished aluminium, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As another reviewer pointed out, the "all wheels" cleaner sold as "safe for all wheels" isn't suitable for polished aluminium. The product page doesn't state this anywhere but the instructions do, so I now have a cleaner I can't use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Solid, 11 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having tried a few drill stands, I settled on this very solid Bosch model. The mechanism has no wobble or play, unlike the cheaper models I'd tried, my only complaint being the price (it's in the same price range as a standalone bench drill).

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed after four months, 24 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The improvement in speed after installing the SSD was more than I expected; from booting the machine to shutting it down again, all waiting was reduced to a fraction of when using the old drive. Until one day, four months after installing it, the laptop would no longer boot and the disk was unrecognised. Plugging the disk into another machine and using the OCZ Toolbox utility it still wasn't recognised, with a return to OCZ to only alternative.

The numerous seconds (and then some) the disk saved throughout is short life were then wasted reinstalling software, retrieving backups, and dealing with licensing issues (since a disk failure like this doesn't allow for doing a license transfer with software like Maya, etc.).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 7 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read quite a few books on mobile Java but this is the first I've seen for JSR-184. Most books spend far too long covering the basics (how to install Sun's WTK, etc., etc.) but Claus Höfele gets straight to the point. His descriptions and examples of how the API works have been most helpful - something the official documentation could do with. I'd certainly recommend this book to anyone wanting to have a firm understanding of mobile 3D.


The Complete Guide to Flex 2 and ActionScript 3.0

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a complete guide, 4 April 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazon lists the book title as "the complete guide" but it's far from complete (and the actual title is "the essential guide"). There's nothing particularly wrong with the book, but if you're looking for something that goes deep into Flex and ActionScript 3.0 then this is not the book for you. I'd describe it as a gentle introduction to Flex itself, with a smattering of ActionScript at best. I'm sure if you've only ever done Flash and are a complete beginner when it comes to scripting, this would be a good book.
