Thule Crossroad Railing Rapid System Footpack For Cars With Roof Rails (the load carrier bars are not included)
Thule Crossroad Railing Rapid System Footpack For Cars With Roof Rails (the load carrier bars are not included)
Price: £89.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Thule Footpack for roofrails, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having changed cars recently, to on with roof rails, it was time to change the Thule footings so as to keep the excellent aerobars.

Not a great deal to say about these except they are high quality, easy to assemble and do the job perfectly.

They're quite low profile so the roofbox sits a little lower. The rubber covered steel straps seem strong and I have no concerns about using these with a fully laden roofbox.

A great purchase and the quality you would expect from this leading brand.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the advertised shoe size, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all this is not a review of the quality of the product, simply because even though we ordered a 1/2 size larger than my daughters feet, the product that turned up was somewhere between 1 and 2 whole sizes SMALLER than her feet.

As she could not get them on her feet there is no way to be able to comment on the quality.

If you buy this product, be aware that the size advertised bears no resemblance whatsoever to UK shoe sizes.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for high school, 23 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Childs Lab Coat (Apparel)
With the eldest daughter about to start high school and a lab coat on the equipment list, this product seemed a reasonable price.

Product arrived quickly, is of cood qualify polyester/cotton mix not simply polyester like some othjers I have seen. The coat is a good length, has 3 large pockets and easy press stud fastening.

Size wise, although it says the size is small, it fits easily a ratehr tall 11 year old girl so no complaints there.

First impressions are positive, but will repost in a few months to report back on how it stands up to life in a science lab.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply perfect, 13 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So having the hard drive fail on my laptop, took the plunge to buy a replacement blank disk and move from the pre-installed Vista to Windows 7.

Went for the OEM system rather than retail version. Installation was a breeze: quick, simple and no fuss at all. Simply insert the DVD choose a few simple options and sit back for 20 mins or so whilst the system auto installs itself.

I have no need to the added features of the Ultimate or any other veriety of Win 7 and there have been so many reviews of the system that nothing I could say would add anything.

So would I recommend this...Yes. Like I said, quick and easy to install on a blank hard drive.

Thje system is quick, my 5 year old laptop now does run faster and the windows experience score has risen from 4./8 in Vista to 5.2 in Windows 7.


Nintendo DSi Handheld Console (Pink)
Nintendo DSi Handheld Console (Pink)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great update to the DS Lite, 9 Aug 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the new DSi pink console for our youngest daugher (to stop the arguments about her using her sisters DS Lite)!!!

It feels great, the camera despite being 3pixels is fantastic and really fun to play around with, and the overall setting of the home page is alot nicer and more freindly and more fun.

The product looks great, okay the camera isn#'t the best being only 3mp, but for a child it's perfect.

The girls love the chat room function so they can now have "secret" conversations and the fact that old DS Lite games are totally compatable is a great boost as we can recycle games the elder daughter has grown out of.

All in all a great little product and we now have two kids who will happily sit in the back of the car without squabbling !

Totally recommend it.


BCB FIREBALL FIRE LIGHTING FLINT STEEL STRIKER SURVIVAL
BCB FIREBALL FIRE LIGHTING FLINT STEEL STRIKER SURVIVAL
Offered by CamoOutdoor - The Sports & Camouflage Outfitters
Price: £11.69

4.0 out of 5 stars Fire lighting flint & steel, 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered on of these mainly to help my daughter practice lighting a fires (as they're learnign to use a flint and steel at school).

Product is perfect for the job, producing lots of sparks very quickly (although it does take a fwew strikes to remove the coating before best results are achieved).

The V shaped groove is well thought out giving effectively two striking surfaces and doubling the amount of sparks generated.

The only (slight) downside to this is the chain which is a little too short and as a result looks like it could break if you are a little too vigorous with the striking action.

That small thing aside, I would definitely recommend and for the price don';t think it can be beaten.


York T501 Motorised/Incline Treadmill
York T501 Motorised/Incline Treadmill

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a home workout, 24 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great sturdy treadmill at a decent price (although I'm not convinced of the RRP Amazon were claiming it to have been reduced from as it was higher than the York website had it listed).

Anyhow, product took about 4 days to arrive from ordering, not too bad. Courier company had originally given a 8am to noon slot and even confirmed this in the morning of the delivery. Sadly they didn;t actually turn up until around 3pm (way to go for wasting virtually the whole day).

Delivery aside, what do I think about the product.....

Like I said, sturdy, very heavy so you wouldn;t want to be moving it around too often. I decided to set it up in the garage and works well there.

Product comes with some self assembly erequired, but basically involves attaching the two upright arms and then the computer. This can be done by a single person but would advise two people as attaching the computers involves holding the unit, attaching three wires and then sloting all together. The wires are quite short so not much leeway in getting it all together. In fact, I imagine it could be quite easy to snap on of the wires if your not careful, so take a little time.

Once all assembles, apply some lubricant under the belt and then let the machine run on a slow setting for about 10 mins before use.

Treadmill has been used about 10 times now and I have no problems. Not too noisy in use, good range of speed although a bit quicker than it's maximum of 10kph would have been better.

The computer comes with six pre-defined programs and you can alter the length of time these run for. Can also set the computer to either a fixed time or fixed distance. Sadly there is no facility to design your own programs.

Overall, really can't fault it. I know a few people have said that the hand held pulse monitor is not accurate. Can't really comment as not used this.

Great buy and I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 3d surround sound bluray player, 3 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to go with a new Sony 46" bravia tv and all I can say is wow what a combination.

First the set up, very easy, all the speakers are colour coded so no guessing which speaker plugs into which output. Once all the speakers were in place, you perform a simple self-calibration which involves placing the supplied microphone at approximately your viewing position and then letting the system calibrate each speaker for optimum performance.

Once this is done, you are ready to go. Connected to the TV via HMDI and an optical input from the TV audio feed, the sounds are crystal clear. The sub-woofer gives deep down base sounds and the power out put is way more than you (or the neighbours) could ever need.

Both this and the TV are internet enabled, and I choose to connect to my router via n ethernet connection rather than splash out for the over prices sony wifi dongle.

Streaming TV (BBC iPlayer for example) is a breeze and gives excellent [picture quality.

As you'd expect, the bluray playback is flawless. Can't comment on the 3d output of this (or the TV) as haven't used it. But the 2D hi-def viewing is a complete pleasure. I also like the fact that you can simply use one remote control to control both the TV and DVD player.

All in all an excellent product and more than happy with my purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality budget monitor, 7 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace my mum's aging CRT monitor that had finally given up the ghost.

She doesn't need anything special or high end, just a decent quality monitor that wasn't going to cost the earth. Well this seems to fit the bull perfectly. Delivery was speedy, simply unpack, plug in and away you go.

The screen is crisp and bright, text easy to read and the colour balance seems ok.

Only one slight niggle is that the push button controls are housed underneath rather than on the front of the monitor which can make them a little fidly to use.

All in all, happy with the purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works like a dream, 7 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Both daughters have very long straight hair, which has a tendancy to get very knotty during the course of a school day.

Use this product after washing and conditioning their hair and it does work like a dream in getting their hair untangled and makes for easy combing.

The other plus point is that is made wholly from natural organic ingredients and so no nasty chemicals that could cause a reaction on sensitive skin.

I would have given this a 5 star rating but for one small point. I have noticed that as the bottle gets empty, the nozzle does have a tendancy to clog resulting in not getting a fine mist applied to the hair but rather larger droplets of the product.

Apart from that minor issue, this is a great product and will continue using it for years to come.
