Flymo SabreCut XT Cordless Battery Telescopic Hedge Trimmer 18 V - 50 cm
Flymo SabreCut XT Cordless Battery Telescopic Hedge Trimmer 18 V - 50 cm
Price: £84.95

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money, 22 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't waste your money. It is not powerful enough. Blades move much slower than my old mains electric trimmer, and simply push stems aside so that cutting is random. It has no supporting strap so when used fully extended it rapidly becomes too heavy to hold. I have only been trying to trim the winter growth on Leylandii, so not thick stems.

Warm and comfortable, but its surface collects any stray hair and dust particles. Be prepared to be busy with Sellotape in keeping it clear.

Animation is stunning but the story very dark and violent. Watched first 20 minutes only.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Teflon? lining doesn't seem very robust and the handle is attached by one bolt so it gradually becomes loose and needs constant re-tightening.

This review is from: Dallas Buyers Club (DVD)
The offensive, foul language from the beginning made me quickly realize this film was not for me. Tried snippets throughout but there was no change so didn't watch it all the way through. Character is American low life, so why watch something which is so distasteful and seems to cater for those with a low IQ?

3.0 out of 5 stars Many feeble clues, 4 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nearly every puzzle had several poorly composed clues. Having done Telegraph crosswords for 50 years, I found this lack of "cryptic satisfaction" a disappointment. Each puzzle covered two pages making 200 puzzles take up 464 pages. This makes the book rather bulky for slipping into a coat pocket, especially after some use. I agree with other reviewers that the use of long gone and quite forgotten politicians as clues would be annoying for younger puzzlers, especially in what is purported to be an "All New Big Book of Cryptic Crosswords". My guess is that the Telegraph is pulling out the clues from their massive database, having done away with human compilers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sole problem, 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have had Hush Puppies Men's Bennet Brown shoes for 2 years for occasional wear. Have just noticed deep splits across both soles, which is a pity, as the uppers are still good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 31 May 2011
This review is from: DUNLOP Men's Conor Slipper (Shoes)
I have had these slippers for 6 months. They are now looking decidedly shabby. The brown fabric forming the uppers is too thin and pliable, giving a worn and shapeless appearance. The inside lining to the sole has worn away at the heel in both slippers, revealing a composite wooden support (similar to woodchip). The black rubber soles have worn slightly, but are still intact- no holes or splits. They are now heading for the waste bin.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy keys, 18 Jun. 2010
Bought 16 months ago. The keys have required more and more pressure over this time to write captital letters. (Weakened shift keys?). This is extremely irritating and time-consuming. Now looking for a better keyboard.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strong wrist needed, 23 Oct. 2007
Well made but too heavy (mine came without the small lifting handle). The main handle, being metal, gets too hot to use without hand protection.
