Ergotron LX Desk Mount LCD Arm
Ergotron LX Desk Mount LCD Arm
Price: £111.79

5.0 out of 5 stars It is very well made and sturdy, everything is properly cast metal and fits together ..., 15 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is very well made and sturdy, everything is properly cast metal and fits together well. It's easy to assemble and doesn't wobble or slip in use with a 24" LCD. The fixings supplied will work with a variety of desks, out of the box it fitted straight to my standard laminate desk with no problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best LED bulbs I've had, look and work exactly like traditional bulbs, 15 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are the best LED bulbs I've had. The light is emitted in all directions unlike with some bulbs, so lampshades and existing fittings work properly. To look at in use they're very close to a traditional clear incandescent bulb. The light is quite warm in tone and there is no noticeable flickering on moving objects.

5.0 out of 5 stars It really works, 10 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Both me and my partner have used this, and it does exactly what it should.
We both have the ideal combination of light skin & dark hair. It takes a few sessions, but in every area it has been tried we've had results.
It's not painful to use as such, more like 'a bit uncomfortable' at worst. It's a lot better than waxing or epilating, even in the more sensitive areas. A flash of heat and a maybe bit of a sting.
It's well worth the money, especially as discounted as it is here compared to other places. We've saved quite a lot compared to laser treatment or even boxes of wax strips.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK, but no information that can't easily be found online., 6 Aug. 2009
"The LGV learner driver's guide" is a useful reference for prospective lorry drivers, with information about the law, licensing, tests and other aspects of the learning experience. However there is nothing in this book that cannot be easily obtained, for free, from government and other websites. The entire sections about licensing and tests could have been lifted from the DVLA/DSA sites and nothing new is in the book. Although a useful "one stop" reference, anyone considering learning to drive a truck (especially if you are reading this review, online) would do better to browse the ample information available on the web and give this book a miss. Anyone already in the process of learning will already know most of the information in this book anyway.
It may make a gift for an older prospective driver, perhaps without the necessary online knowhow to find the information easily themselves. For anyone else, save your money (or indeed buy another fine book from this site ;) )


The Best Book on the Market: How to Stop Worrying and Love the Free Economy
The Best Book on the Market: How to Stop Worrying and Love the Free Economy
by Eamonn Butler
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of the market economy, 6 Aug. 2009
"The best book on the market" is a very concise overview of how and why markets work, and how they allocate resources and effort in a very complex world. The book uses only clear everyday language, rather than the technical terms and charts that can cause confusion to those who don't speak the language of economics.
There are some good insights into the true function of some reviled areas of capitalism, eg speculators, and the downsides of government regulation and control are discussed in clear terms.
Eamonn Butler also lays into the traditional view of supply and demand, stating that markets are chaotic, and that the 'equilibrium' often talked about is a fallacy.
There are some details with which I disagree (particularly the advocation of 'Road Pricing') but nonetheless the book is a good grounding in free market theory.
I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in how the economy works, whichever part of the political spectrum they inhabit.
