5.0 out of 5 stars Stable and straightforward. Recommended, 1 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like this. I have tried various to link incarnations which are good but not nearly as stable as this. Having also used the apple airport I found this very similar for audio streaming and turns Ethernet devices into wireless with the leads going from device into this.

I found setup very straightforward and after a week it has not yet fallen over

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series of books, 1 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Hepatology at a Glance (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the second "at a glance" book in the series I have had. The other was the geriatric medicine edition. As before the layout and style of the book is simple and straightforward. This is much more specialist and aimed directly at medical students and comes with a discount for the ebook version and links to 30 interactive multiple choice questions.

This is more technical than the geriatric edition but very informative and can be used and understood by the interested layman. Particularly good if you know anyone suffering any liver condition as all the knowledge is in one place and always better than Dr Google!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stable with excellent range., 29 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Higher price end of the market and does have very comprehensive configuration options however, as someone who just likes to use my internet and have it always there when I want it this is perfect. Quality connection range has increased by about 50% on my tplink and the old BT hub3. I personally don't like the look of it but it doesn't sit on my mantle piece so it doesn't really matter. What matters is the ease of setup which is straightforward, the wireless range which is excellent and reliability which is sound. The extra cost is justified by the extra range.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not just for medical students, 29 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am not a medical student and apparently this range of "at a glance" books are aimed and students and junior doctors. I think they should be read in schools and given out to anyone with an elderly relative. This book is so informative and simply written. I am now able to make sense of my mothers position and see ageing in a new light. As a medical text book it covers things factually rather than emotively (but covers emotive wellbeing) but is written and illustrated throughout making it crystal clear giving a solid overview of geriatric conditions. It explains the tests and scoring assessment systems for different issues. It does go into depth and medical speak some of which passes over my head, but it is a medical text book! Have a look at the preview, you'll see how valuable it is.

It really is a must have for anyone caring for or just caring about the elderly. Highly recommended series.

1.0 out of 5 stars £5.49 kindle or £3.49 hardback????, 26 July 2015
This review is from: Riddley Walker (Kindle Edition)
£5.40 on kindle or £3.20 hardback. Absolutely ridiculous price.
I'll get a copy from second hand store. Time publishing houses realised pricing like this drives away readers and does nothing fir the credibility of the author. Even Tom Clancy isn't this expensive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loses star only on price, 10 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I took this with me to my doctor this week and checked it both manually and with theirs and it was spot on. I am starting new medication which may effect my blood pressure so this was excellently timed. It comes complete with batteries, always a big plus, and they are branded Duracell. The machine has two completely separate cuffs which are very easily changed if needed. It records your readings and can store for two individuals. Absolutely ideal when intensive monitoring is required. It does have an app but it is manual entry and for the price I would have thought it would talk to my phone. Memory stores The date and time of the readings and holds 50 readings for each user.

The machine reads on he inflation which makes it faster, others I have used inflate the. Reduce slowly to record. It is very quiet and the display is set at a high angle to be read clearly on a table top.

Good and accurate if a little expensive for a none 'smart' model

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money, 8 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have tried numerous headphones and ear phones. The main test for these was plugging them into my phone and then listening while someone started mowing the lawn. The noise cancellation was not perfect on the quiet parts but more than adequate and would be fine for commuting with train noise. The sound is surprisingly good and up there with phones three times the price. Clear treble and full bass, I find headphones are usually superior to in ear types but that maybe comfort. Currently selling at £15.99 makes these some of the best value around with little compromise on quality. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made and better than hozelock, 4 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I normally use the hozelock version of this but as with other hizelock products the quality seems to be declining over recent years

This one is well made and seems as robust as they can be given the wands are always vulnerable. It is easy to fill, slightly difficult to see the fluid level but that's the same with all sprayers

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the real quality feel of something like Meile, but good value, 3 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This does what it says. There are two installations of cooker holds, the replacement or the new installation. As a replacement this was very easy and straightforward. Although weight doesn't matter fir the whole of its life in use it does matter on installation and this is light and can just about be done singlehandedly. The vent is the 6" size and places like wickes do the kit to duct the air out, also here on Amazon but a similar price.
The build is good enough, it lacks real quality feel but it's fine and looks good. You can get LED bulbs that fit too which is a big plus in our house,

3.0 out of 5 stars Looses stars for referring to needing the epilator before using the IPL But not including it in the pack, 3 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This feels well made and is a base unit that plugs into the mains and the corded unit itself sits snugly in the base. It is suitable for all skin types and all others I have seen/reviewed are only suitable for some skin types or colours. That's a plus as is the replaceable light cartridge which last 200k flashes. Again others aren't replaceable and the unit has to go in the bin.

The light head is smaller than the philips lumeo systems but this is significantly cheaper. The safety bars stop the light emitting unless both are on the skin.

The big letdown here is the lack of epilator attachment, even though the instructions say for best results epilate first. The plus is the all skin types statement.

Worth getting as long as you either wax or have another epilator to use prior to starting IPL treatment.
