5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Bulbs, 14 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent colour temperature (a proper "warm white") and certainly worthy of being called a 40 watt equivalent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unacceptably long drying time., 14 May 2016
This stuff is supposed to be recoatable in 16 to 24 hours. After 24 hours it was still tacky on the hardwood trims I painted with it. I had to wait three days before it was hard enough to put undercoat on!
The 2010 regulations on solvent paints really seem to have made them absolutely useless unless you have unlimited time to sit and watch paint dry!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hope I don't actually need all of these!, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these as spares for a set of 14 I bought a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, two of the originals have already failed, despite being LEDs and, as it is important that the bulbs all match in my downlighters, I now have six spares left as an insurance against further failures. LEDs themselves may have a long life, but it seems the associated electronics isn't always as reliable. The two that failed started flashing badly before going dim.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced for a "body only" tool, 15 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was purchased for me as a gift. Whilst it is undoubtably a good quality piece of equipment, I was not impressed that I had to fork out nearly £100 for a battery and charger just in order to use it! It also only comes with only one cutting blade, meaning more expenditure for jobs that need other blades. Considering the lack of battery, charger and accessories, it is vastly overpriced.

So much better value than the small bottles you get in the supermarkets but with the same high quality hand wash inside

These lights are excellent. The shade of white is spot-on and they are very reasonably priced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect replacement -after a little "tweeking", 9 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The movement in my Past Times clock packed up just after their shops went bust, so I couldn't return it. Very pleased to find this replacement. Initially, the spring clips meant it kept popping out of the hole in the clock casing, but I just removed the clips with a pair of pliers and replaced them with the rubber band from the original movement and got a perfect fit!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very impressed, 1 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Aurora shredder became useless after two years because the paper sensor stopped working. There are very few shredders available with large capacity bins, at a reasonable price, but I never buy a poor product a second time. So I thought I would give this Rexel shredder a try instead. I had to return the first one of these because the thermal cut out kept operating after just one minute of continuous use (claimed to last three minutes) and then the machine would not work for another 20 minutes! The replacement is better in this respect, but will not reliably take more than 6 sheets without jamming. So not very impressed.

NEW "Ultrafresh" Anti Allergy, 16" EXTRA DEEP KING Size Fitted Cream Sheet, By Rejuvopedic©
Offered by The Linen Depot
Price: £14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly Extra Deep!, 1 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My mattress with topper is 12 inches deep and I am fed up with most shops not stocking deep enough fitted sheets (especially after they have been washed a couple of times). This product is actually slightly too big if anything, but will probably fit perfectly after a few washes. It is also very soft. Only slight disappointment is that it is not quite as "easy care" as I expected and really needs ironing, but who has time to iron sheets!

3.0 out of 5 stars Well made but arrived damaged., 28 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Baxi Lift Out 18" Ashpan
Sturdily made and it's good that you can still get this replacement part for very old Baxi fires. However, this lost stars for arriving filthy dirty and with a dent in the lip.
