Halogen Bulb Removal Tool Blue 4cm circumference
Halogen Bulb Removal Tool Blue 4cm circumference
Offered by Paragon Supplies Limited
Price: 5.45

1.0 out of 5 stars Completely useless - does not adhere properly to halogen bulbs - avoid, 16 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tool is completely ineffective. It sticks very well to flat surfaces such as windows or worktops, but is absolutely useless on halogen light bulbs - barely sticks at all and certainly cannot be used to remove or fit bulbs. It appears to be unable to cope with the slightly convex surface of the bulbs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 27 Aug 2013

Does the job, although the mountings do not match my 2012 X5 properly.
It is good quality and very robust.

Frames By Post 25mm wide H7 Black Picture Photo Frame 30 x20" (Plastic Glass)
Offered by Frames and Mirrors 4 U
Price: 21.79

2.0 out of 5 stars Average quality frame, 27 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Frame arrived quickly and was well packed.
Quality of the product is average and I bought online because of the size, which is unavailable in local retailers.
It seemed relatively expensive compared to equivalents (albeit of a different size/shape, but roughly the same size) available in local shop.
I was disappointed that back board was just bare wood, with no white or other paper backing that could provide a decent mounting surface for the poster - this meant that I incurred additional cost sourcing this elsewhere

4.0 out of 5 stars good value purchase, 23 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
these have been a reasonable purchase - so far the shortest that any has lasted is 4 months. Way superior than - and far cheaper than B&Q equivalents which cost 2-3 times more but often lasted a matter of weeks in our kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stimulating and thought provoking, 1 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Extremely readable and very enjoyable. Ha-Joon Chang takes a very measured and often irreverent approach, but makes compelling arguments that challenge most current economic orthodoxies. Extremely convincing, well researched and evidence that there is another way.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 1 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hugely disappointing - the book falls between multiple stools, occasionally taking on the role of a generic critic of contemporary capitalism, then returning to a factual history of the company in question. There is a frustrating lack of detail in several of the company histories (M&S and BP particularly come to mind)and the anti-capitalist commentaries often distract from more interesting (and frequently more damning) factual accounts. I have read far richer company histories or profiles and more effective polemics against the wrongs of modern businesses. The overall feeling on finishing the book is one of randomness - minimal connections between the companies covered and a strange mish-mash of content and commentary.

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts off well, but then left me behind, 23 May 2009
As a complete novice to Russian I found that the course started off very well and was a good introduction to the basics. Unfortunately it then seemed to make a leap at the end of Chapter 2 and lost me with Chapter 3, despite my repetition of the earlier content. This may be an effective course for an accomplished language learner, but for a language "idiot" it did not work.
