Plasti-kote 592 400ml Varnish Satin Spray Paint - Clear
Plasti-kote 592 400ml Varnish Satin Spray Paint - Clear
Offered by deals-direct
Price: £9.05

5.0 out of 5 stars the end result is excellent. I used the product on new oak doors, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If the manufacturer's instructions are followed, ie apply frequent thin coats, the end result is excellent. I used the product on new oak doors. After 9 very thin coats, lightly sanding between the early coats, I was left with an ultra-smooth satin finish. The finish is not only beautiful but also appears to be tough and durable. Area coverage was found to be approximately as stated by manufacturer. Would recommend.


Windscreen & Windshield Scratch Repair (Wiper Blade Scratches)
Windscreen & Windshield Scratch Repair (Wiper Blade Scratches)
Offered by Glass Polish Ltd
Price: £15.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not have hoped for better, 7 May 2014
Had 3" scratch in one of the toughened glass panels in my door. Probably would be described as a Medium Scratch, ie could feel with fingernail. This product was said to be for light scratches only, hence just hoped for a visual improvement. Some 3 hours later, all signs of the scratch has gone. Main thing is to keep the glass from getting hot by the frequent use of a water spray.
Highly recommend.

Unlike so many tools for children the quality of this trowel is excellent and well worth the little extra paid for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 25 Mar 2014

Whilst very cheap, first impression is that the camera is well made and appears good quality.
Setting up was fairly straight forward. The supplied CD did not work on Win7, neither did a downloaded copy of their Camera Wizard. However the camera is supplied with a default static address and thus it was a simple job to access the camera’s interface via browser and set everything up. The camera is also supplied with a hostname and incorporates a DDNS update facility. The update failed initially but was OK when tried another day, so maybe Tenvis site down initially. However I did not need it as I have 3rd party hostname.
Since then the camera has been working flawlessly. Daylight image good but exhibits lack of green as would be expected as no IR cut filter. Night image is very good. Unlike experience with some other makes of camera, the wifi connection is rock solid with my BT Hub4.
If any criticism is to be made it would be the 40deg field of view. This is OK for me, but many people would prefer the 60deg angle as provided by a shorter focal length (say 4mm) lens.
Finally, whilst connection to a Windows phone posed no problems, the same wasn’t true for a Windows rt tablet. Some apps worked great, most failed to connect. So it is important to test each app prior to making a purchase. This is hardly a criticism as this camera is no different to most of the other low cost Chinese cameras.

A simple, but excellent, introduction for anyone starting with Linux. Descriptions and explanations are good, and the book provides a good reference.

Probably was a useful book for beginners, but like so many technical books of this type, both hardware and software have moved on, leaving the book extremely dated and of little value. Surprised it is still available for purchase.

Excellent case; well made, good fit, modestly priced. Above all, one can charge the phone with the case closed, unlike so many others.

Excellent product, competitively priced.The fact that it is larger than a standard capacity battery and slightly overhangs the rear of the laptop case is hardly noticeable. The larger capacity now allows six hours of laptop time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better, 27 Jun 2013

Considering the price, the case is fairly good quality and looks OK. It is a perfect fit for the Lumia 720. The only criticism, and this brings its star rating down, is that there is no hole for the charger. To charge, the case has to be fully open and whilst this may be of little concern in the house, it is most inconvenient when charging in the car where space is at a premium.
