5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent trimmer, 13 Mar. 2012
Having owned this for 4 years now, I can confirm that it's a great quality product and a pleasure to use.

Fully charge it before you start using it to get the most out of it. There's an LED which changes from orange to green when the charge is full. I use the trimmer roughly 4 days a week and the charge still lasts 2 - 3 weeks. You'll be able to hear the trimmer slowing down as you reach the very end of the charge, giving you maybe 2 more full beard shaves. You can simply plug it in a run it from mains while you finish your shave if you run it to no charge.

There are 9 length settings on it, but I've only ever used 1 - 4 and they all trimmed evenly without pulling, catching or sticking. The thumb wheel for adjusting length is positioned well and out of the way while shaving. Once you choose the length, the setting will remain in place very reliably.

The design is very comfortable to hold and is well designed for holding in different grips depending on the direction you shave in. Even when I've had it plugged in charging during a shave, it's barely noticeable and still very light and easy to manoeuvure. Its self-maintenance is also a great bonus and its continued performance is a testament to it's quality.

When you remove the length guide from the top, you can flip open the pop-up trimmer which is great for doing moustache edges and enabling finely controlled shaping to your shave.

This trimmer will give you flexibility, quality and ease of use. Whether you pay twenty of twent five pounds, it's still great value and I recommend buying it.


Beige Check Boxed Lavender Herbal Heat Pack Wheat Bag - soothing aches & pains
Beige Check Boxed Lavender Herbal Heat Pack Wheat Bag - soothing aches & pains

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, cozy and great quality, 13 Mar. 2012
As far as wheat bags go, this has been a good quality product. My wife bought this in her first pregnancy, while she was very sensitive to smells and was easily put off by anythign too strong. This wheat bag was perfect, gently scented but the scent still lasted for months. It also nicely doubled as a bed warmer.

As with all scented products, then lavender will eventually wear off and you can adjust it yourself with oils if you wish. We never did, but 4 years on and plenty of aches & pains later, it's still in excellent condition.

I recommend this as an excellent quality product and good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and good fun, 13 Mar. 2012
These stickers have been a great investment. I've bought 2 sets of these, one for each of the kids rooms. Both sets lasted about two and a half years before beginning to peel. This fortunately coincided with the kids getting to an age where they were expressing an interest in changing their rooms anyway.

Both sets of stickers have also moved house with us 3 times. Each time I put the stickers on baking paper for the move and they came off easily and stuck cleanly to the new walls. Having removed these stickers a number of times I can also report no damage whatsoever to wallpaper, freshly painted walls or old painted walls.

Not only are they a fun decoration, but they were also a fun way for the kids to learn about animals names when they were young. These stickers are much better than anything else I found in terms of size & wall coverage as well as variety and value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and great quality, 4 Sept. 2008
This is a sturdy, good quality microphone, especially for the price. Getting it working on Win XP worked first time. I did have to install a new driver but everything was auto-detected and straight forward.

The sound quality is great and it's easy to use. I mainly use it with Skype and it picks up voices clearly, even from across the room. I only ever had a very minor echo/feedback problem, but you can adjust the sensitivity of the microphone which has fixed the feedback/echo problems.

For the price, I can't fault it and recommend it highly for anyone who wants reliable and high quality sound at a price that won't break the bank.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 11 May 2008
This is a great DVD recorder and very good value for money. It's been very simple to use and after months of constant use, I have no complaints.

The built in freeview gives both higher quality and a more consistent signal than my previous stand alone box and the menu is intuitive and easy to use, expecially for recording.

Recording is as easy as a single button press once you've chosen the show you want. The recorder reads all kinds of discs and prompts you to format them when they require it. You can even create menus for your recordings through the recorder.

Overall, I've been highly impressed with both the performance and ease of use, and I would recommend this as by far the best product in it's price range.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun!, 10 May 2008
What a fantastic book! We started to read it to our daughter at 3 months of age and now at 6 months it's one of her favourite books. She gets a huge smile on her face when you bring it out to read to her, tries to turn the pages and giggles when you say Peekaboo! Highly recommended!!
