5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Buy, 27 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Charging units have come a long way in the past few months.

This is a very nice unit. First thing you notice is its size. It is just 10 x 9 cm and therefore very compact. Second thing you notice is the number of charging ports in such a small unit. It has four smart charge units, one quick charge and one USB type C charging port. The latter looks like becoming pretty much a market norm in the future.

I was sent one of these for an honest review. I already have a number of similar charging units and this is certainly as good as any of them. It's wonderful to be able to charge up phones, tablets and other devices at the same time. A very good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Nonsense and Excellent Value, 27 Mar. 2016
This is a no nonsense armband that fits well.

You do have to be careful in as much as it only fits Ipod Nano 7th/8th generation. This is clearly stated on the description, however. At under a fiver you can't go wrong and this is ideal for jogging or the gym.

I was sent one of these for an honest review and it is excellent value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value Sheets, 27 Mar. 2016
These sandpaper sheets which I was sent for an honest review, represent excellent value for money at just inder £7 for 18 sheets of differing coarseness from 400 to 3000. There are two of each coarseness and these are pretty much suitable for most sanding down jobs around the house.

Value wise you cannot quibble as they work out at less than 40 p per sheets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value Quality Sheets, 27 Mar. 2016
The pack, which I was sent for an honest review, contains a good selection of good class sandpaper. There are sheets of a variety of grains from 800 to 3000 and the sheets are large measuring approx 9 x 11 inches.

They are ideal for many jobs about the house and home and can wrap around a block to give you added movement.

There are 14 sheets for £8 which works out at under 60p a sheet - good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for Young Children, 24 Mar. 2016
A nifty little gadget which is more fun than s serious timepiece. It has a mushroom shape and takes three AAA batteries which aren't included.

Once the batteries are inserted it projects a bright light with changing colours and by pressing down on the machine the time can be illuminated onto the ceiling for a number of seconds. The digital display in the front of the machine is relatively small and it takes a while to get used to how to set the time and date and alarm functions.

This is fun for young children.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Comfortable Brush, 24 Mar. 2016
A decent enough make-up brush that is soft to the face and to the touch.

Thankfully it doesn't shed and is good for sculpting. I was sent one of these for an honest review and my wife was pleasantly surprised at how versatile it was. It holds its shape well and feels comfortable to hold and use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Winners, 24 Mar. 2016
With these phones, it certainly pays to read other reviews which will be more helpful in pairing and setting them up than the instruction booklet. They come in a decent box but not one you would keep them in after opening. So the packaging is ok.

Included in the box is a small battery, a usb charging cable and an audio cable. I tried these both through Bluetooth and the audio cable. That means they can be used with any Bluetooth enabled device as well as with players not Bluetooth enabled. So a bonus there. Not surprisingly there was no difference in sound quality.

It did take a while to pair with my Android, but after a number of goes it was successful, Before pairing you have to insert the battery and that's where other reviewers helped me as it wasn't immediately apparent where it should go. It actually goes inside the left sided phone. This is magnetised and easy to open and has an attached chord so that you don't drop the top on the floor or lose it.

The phones are reasonably comfortable but the sound quality is really excellent and is the overriding factor when you come to consider buying these. There is a really good balance between bass and treble and plenty of oomph. So overall with a bit of effort these, which I was sent for an honest review, are winners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 24 Mar. 2016
These are exceptionally good headphones for the price - just enough bass and treble that isn't too overpowering.

They look and feel good. I was sent a pair for an honest review and they come nicely boxed. The phones themselves collapse to make them much smaller and easy to carry. They have comfortable pads and fit snuggly. The sound is good and their noise cancelling ability is excellent. I can highly recommend these phones which at the time of reviewing were selling at £22.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual Vintage Case, 24 Mar. 2016
This is a nice vintage looking case for the I Pad mini 1/2/3. It makes a change from basic one colour covers and it stands out nicely. It folds over to produce a stand and comes with a stylus for touch screens.

The cover depicts and ancient map and compass and there is a nice leather clasp that keeps the case closed. At just under £11 it is competitively priced. It will also make your ipad mini instantly recognisable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Portrait of a Tortured Soul, 24 Mar. 2016
This is a very decent biography.

Much of it is taken from previously available material, but that doesn't detract from a decent look at the character of a complex man who never quite came to terms with the fame that was thrust upon him. At times Harrison felt the fame was happening to somebody else.

By necessity this book is obviously also about the Beatles and at times it does wander away from the subject of the biography. But of course that was always going to be inevitable. It beautifully illustrates the way the Fab Four soon became burnt out with the non stop rounds of live dates, recording, making films etc. It is written in an engaging style about a man that has always seemed to play second fiddle to Lennon and McCartney but whom had a withering sense of humour.

I have always been particularly interested in the early days of the Beatles - before they were famous. Interestingly Harrison never felt a great affinity to his native Liverpool and it is important that we think about this book without pre-conceptions. Today Liverpool is a thriving centre of history and art. When Harrison was growing up it was a hotbed of violence and crime. The book highlights the wonderful support Harrison had from his family and his mother in particular.

It depicts the early days in Hamburg well and the transition of the Beatles into the world's greatest ever band. Much of the interest in the book, however, comes in the shape of Harrison's life outside the group when he was older but not necessarily wiser and continually striving for something that could make some sense of his life. This is a good portrait of something of a tortured soul.
