5.0 out of 5 stars Quality bluetooth portable speaker, 26 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Bose ® SoundLink Colour Bluetooth Speaker – I have the black version but it is also available in a range of bold colours. Very simple to use, within minutes straight out of the box and with no messing I was able to pair my phone and tablet – the spoken commands are also an effective way to confirm a successful connection. For a small speaker the sound quality is excellent (as you’d expect from Bose). The 9m range is easily sufficient for home use and didn’t experience any fade outs or breaks. The speaker size makes it portable and it can be used on battery alone. Very useful and high quality product. I love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Placebo effect?, 26 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Puritane E-Cigarette Starter Kit (Nicotine Free) – Easy to use and with clear instructions. It hasn’t really helped me much (yet) in quitting smoking but is an OK alternative to a cigarette. The flavour is pleasant though the smoke is rather weak and takes a lot of effort to feel like you are smoking. I think patches are more effective but this could be useful as a placebo while using more traditional methods for quitting (something I’ve managed a few times before relapsing again).

4.0 out of 5 stars Languid and dark depiction of the Mexican war on drugs, 26 Oct 2014
This review is from: Heli [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Amat Escalante’s HELI is a dark, moody and disturbing film. At times the pace of the film is languid, but overall this enhances its bleak perspective. Shockingly violent and showing the complete fragility of life for poor Mexicans caught up in the war on drugs, this is a poignant reminder of how brutal the war can be and there are no good guys as both sides are as repugnant as the other. The creative cinematography is used sparingly and effectively to underscore the brutal plot. This film reminded me of Alex Cox's 'Highway Patrolman' in it's dark portrayal of Mexico. HELI is a disheartening look at life but an excellent piece of cinema.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are ypou sitting comfortably?, 28 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Topstar 8180SBC0E Point 80 XXL Size Comfortable Small-Office (black) Swivel Chair. I spend a lot of time at the computer, both in the office or in my study at home – so a good chair is important. The chair I had at home was beginning to fall apart so I got this new chair from Topstar. It arrived quickly and was relatively straight-forward to assemble – it would have been useful to have some written instructions as the pictorial grams weren’t overly clear but what man really needs instructions anyway?
The chair is very robust, firm yet comfortable and supportive to my bad back (prolapsed disk), plus it is light weight and easily manoeuvrable. I’m a large 6’1 guy and this chair suits me fine, only drawback is that the arm rest are too low to use without slouching. Are you sitting comfortably? I am in this great chair!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality designed product, 28 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to use. Impressive design that provides robust protection for the Fire Tablet and works well as a stand. I really like that when you open the front cover the tablet comes off stand-by mode and is ready to use. Really well thought-out and quality designed product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 28 Sep 2014
This review is from: Riviera Line (PC DVD) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very disappointed as it won't install properly. Box says 6gb space needed and I have over 80gb free on one drive, but then when trying to install the installer says it need 49398mb (49GB) of space & there is not enough to complete the installation. Ridiculous and very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pefect, 28 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
LeapFrog LeapBand Activity Tracker (Pink) – I got this item for my four year-old daughter. She loves the colour and being able to wear it (though has misplaced it a few times as it is quite small). It’s easy to use straight out of the box as soon as it’s charged. Plenty of fun games and activities included and she loves the pet pal.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great gift for the wife!, 31 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Philips PerfectCare Azur Iron GC4910/10 is a 2400W Steamgliding master iron. This light blue and white iron has a continuous steam output of 45 g/min, is suitable for all fabrics, can hold 350ml of water which can last up to 45 mins, making it ideal for home use. It is a little heavier than some irons at 1.75kg and comes with a 2.5m power cord. This Iron has produced consistently good results and my wife (whom irons – I’m still a novice) swears it’s the best iron I’ve gifted her so far. Result!


Rapesco X5-90PS Less Effort Heavy Duty Stapler
Rapesco X5-90PS Less Effort Heavy Duty Stapler
Price: £33.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Resilient and Effective, 31 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Rapesco X5-90PS Less Effort Heavy Duty Stapler – this is an excellent and sturdy heavy-duty stapler. Rapesco is a well respected brand in many offices (including mine) and this will be very useful at home also, whether it be for stapling the kids homework assignments, my wife’s class materials or if I’m working from home putting together a presentation. Good build quality, easily handles thick(ish) reams of paper and simple to use. More resilient and effective than a cheap stapler from the stationary aisle at the supermarket. Great Stapler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Starter Lego playset, 31 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
LEGO Juniors 10668: The Princess Play Castle – This is an excellent set for little girls (& boys). I got this for my 4 years old daughter as her older sister was fed up with her interfering with her Lego Friends sets and she was bored with Duplo. She loves this box of Lego as it allows her to stretch her imagination and build lots of buildings and have Lego adventures. Both sisters now play Lego together with improved harmony. Lego is fantastic for encouraging children’s creativity and this is a great starter set.
