5.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste money on the real thing!, 4 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good battery, looks and works like the genuine article for a fraction of the price. Only difference is it does not have Leica written on it!


Photographer's Guide to the Leica D-Lux 6
Photographer's Guide to the Leica D-Lux 6
Price: £8.03

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential partner to the D Lux 6, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent book for an excellent camera. The D Lux 6 is a phenomenal camera but surprisingly versatile hence quite complicated with a multitude of settings. This book is eminently readable and essential for those who want to know about the published, as well as the unpublished features of the D Lux 6.


Burgmeister Men's Automatic Watch Bm153-131
Burgmeister Men's Automatic Watch Bm153-131
Price: £186.61

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly good watch (the second time round), 15 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First Burgmeister purchased from Amazon leaked water after a year and I couldn't change the time (the crown wheel wouldn't work) The auto-winder mechanism also ceased to work. Unfortunately it was out of guarantee by a few days. It was then stolen whilst I was on a trip to the USA - lucky me, very unlucky thieves!
I then purchased an identical watch directly from Germany. It was clear that the Amazon watch I has previously purchased was a customer return. Unlike the Amazon watch, all the transparent plastic was in place on the watch and metal bracelet, demonstrating it was brand new item. Had I not purchased another watch from Germany I would not have realised the Amazon watch was "second hand".

SuperLEDTM GU10 LED BULB 5.5W WITH 27 x 5050 SMD LEDs IN WARM WHITE PERFECT FOR REPLACING 50W HALOGEN
Offered by Sourcing4U Limited
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars inexpensive solution to replacement 50w halogen spotlights, 15 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
excellent value for lamps that use less than 10% of the electricity of a normal halogen spot. Also last for thousands of hours.

With 20 halogen spot bulbs around the hose, changing them all for high efficiency lights is a no brainer. Received them the day after order. The brightness is almost identical to 50W halogen spots with a much warmer light. Running 20 halogens for an hour costs 17 pence, running 20 LED's for an hour costs 1.7 pence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great compact digital Nikon, 31 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having invested over £2,000 in a Nikon D300, I find myself using the S9300 more and more. Picture quality is excellent and it is small enough to take everywhere ensuring you never miss those spontaneous shots. My only gripe, and one that seems common with all digital cameras, is the delay when hitting the shutter button to when the shutter actually opens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another terrific read from Baldacci, 31 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I hope David Baldacci never dries up and continues to write as fast as I read. He is an author with the "Can't put the book down" factor. In many of his books it is difficult to predict the ending, having so many twists and turns. This one is no exception

Kenwood CH180 Mini Chopper - 300 Watt - White
Price: £14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A great little mini food processor, 24 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried several mini processors before since my "Magimix" is really too big to use on a regular basis. All these mini's suffer from the same problem - just a tad too small. 450 ml would be OK for one person but why not 750ml? this would be an ideal size.
The Kenwood is good, performs well and is less noisy than most. If only it was a little bigger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another blinder from David Baldacci, 9 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another cracking adventure from Baldacci. My only problem is he just can't write quickly enough to keep up with his multitude of readers!

His books are so addictive they are difficult to put down and on more than one occasion, I have read the book in one session.

2.0 out of 5 stars An enormous disappointment, 7 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always wanted a Dualit toaster but thought they were somewhat overpriced for the home market. When I saw the Dualit "lite" at less than half the price of the normal machine, I immediately ordered one thinking that it would be good, having the Dualit name. I discovered it was not hand assembled in England but made in China. It did not have replaceable elements and it made lousy toast, undercooked on one side and burnt on the other. The elements heated up at different rates with the central ones on immediately and the outside elements lagging behind by 10 to 20 seconds, hence the very uneven browning. Perhaps I received a bad one, but if they are all like this I don't believe it will do Dualit's reputation any good at all. I certainly couldn't recommend one to anybody considering the "lite" version.
