Ed Hardy Original Eau de Toilette for Men - 100 ml

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't last...., 7 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A pleasant smell and a good quantity for the money, but it really doesn't last long on the skin: not the sort of thing that will last an evening.
Overall not such great value considering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the effort..., 7 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I run an old Mark 1 Mazda MX5 (Eunos), as a hobby, with the original alloy wheels (which aren't in the best condition they could be) and have had problems with slow air leaks over time from the fitting of the rims: this stuff cured the problem instantly. I was so pleased with it I bought another 4 bottles and treated the tires on my everyday car.
If you are thinking of using some yourself, its a good idea to have a plastic straw or something similar to hand because the valve stem will get occasionally blocked when you are putting the stuff in and you will need something to prod it through. I used the fine straw supplied with a can of WD40, though anything that isn't sharp would do.
I feel its really worth the effort of fitting Goop, punctures never happen at a convenient time, you wont regret doing so.

This is a very useful little kit to put in your glove-box and forget about until you need it: then it will be invaluable. Costs pennies.Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just excellent., 15 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this brand of footpump on the basis of the good reviews here on Amazon and I have to say they are not wrong. What a lovely bit of kit!
Beautifully engineered, well worth the premium price, with smooth functioning pump action and an accurate manometer (checked against a Sealy professional gauge).
I have had many of this sort of pump through years of motorcycle and car ownership and they have all turned out to be more or less rubbish: unstable in use, inefficient or just not up to the job due to poor build quality: but the Heyner is just so much better, solidly constructed it gives the impression that it will last for ever. All then various fitting you would expect for inflating different things are present of course, but the clever dual car/cycle valve head is just an example of well thought-out manufacturing. German engineering indeed! You will not be disappointed that you spent a bit more and bought the best quality if you get one of these. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unacceptable., 3 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are advertised and described as genuine Eunicell batteries. "Official Eunicell Batteries , long lasting and at a great price
Please be aware of fakes or non branded batteries that may not be safety checked. Look for the Eunicell logo back and front for a seal of quality."
But what is delivered are "T&E" batteries made by the Hitaka Electron Company. Have you heard of them?, No, neither have I.
Yes, they are very cheap (and were delivered on estimate) BUT they were advertised as a known brand and they aren't. Which is straightforward dishonesty. Unacceptable.

Vortex Diamondback 8.5x50 Binoculars Multicoated Optics Waterproof/Fogproof
Vortex Diamondback 8.5x50 Binoculars Multicoated Optics Waterproof/Fogproof

5.0 out of 5 stars Cant be beaten at this price., 20 May 2015
Very pleased with these binoculars at this price point, though I didn't buy mine through Amazon. Solidly built with a good rubberized coating and "grippy" textured area's so you don't drop them! They are not "pocket" or "compact" binoculars by any means, but not overly large and can be comfortably worn around the neck: the case is a bit large though so I tend not to carry them in their case. The top and bottom lens caps combined with the rubberized coating would seem to be sufficient protection for an average days use.
They give a nice bright image and are effective in low-light conditions. I haven't used them for astronomy though I would imagine they would be very good for moon-watching but a bit under powered for viewing the stars. There is a wide choice of binoculars clustered around this price-point and you will need to do your own research, but from the reading I have done I don't think these can be beaten, especially considering they come with a lifetime guarantee.

5.0 out of 5 stars They're a steal., 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well pleased with this collection, a really good price for the first three Tull albums. Packaging is basic, the digital remastering keeps the authentic sound overall, I thought I detected some discordance on "Benefit" but that might just be my ageing ears! Mine came well before the rather long delivery estimate which was good. At this price they're a steal. Affordable nostalgia.Get some!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made., 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivered two days before estimate which was very good. Well made but not too heavy, weighing in at a tad over 1.5Kg. Comes with a simple leaflet showing how to sit properly. Not the cheapest on the market but will probably last forever. You can buy a cushion if you want one but I find the stool quite comfortable as it is.I'm happy with this purchase and would recommend it to you.

URBAN ARMOR GEAR Folio Case for iPad Air, Black
Price: £36.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money., 9 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent case delivered by Amazon in under 48 hours. Looks very solid, nice grippy exterior, doesn't interfere with access to camera lens or any input/output slots. Not slimline by any means, but appears to offer good protection: my iPad air gets dumped in a work bag along with a few tools, PPE, lunchbox and assorted junk. I'm pleased with this case and consider it worth the extra cost. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good offer., 9 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you use shoe trees, this is a good offer. The trees themselves comprise of a plastic "foot", a substantial metal spring and a plastic "heel": there is a good tension in the spring and they will straighten a pair of firm leather shoes easily (size UK9). I use them to keep my winter boots in good shape, decent footwear is expensive and I find the effort of using trees pays off. Each pair is individually packaged, and delivery was fast, arriving well before estimate.Recommended.
