5.0 out of 5 stars Can't fault this, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is such a clever way of keeping your spices together and out of the way. Screw it on the back of a kitchen cupboard door, and you're ready to go. It's really sturdy, and such a great idea. The gaps on the shelves are just right for any small jars you have to hand.

Can't really find anything to fault this with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect way of organising your ketchup, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these in an effort to organise my cupboards. Screw it on the inside of a kitchen cabinet door, and you can have your must haves ready to hand. Ketchup, Brown sauce, Worcester sauce, this will tackle them all. The only thing you may need to be aware of is the bottom shelf is restricted in height.

Construction wise this is really sturdy, nice thick stainless steel wire construction, this will take knocks and bangs in its stride. I really like mine, and have plans to get another for commonly used cleaning products. Really would recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long spoons!, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are tea spoons with a long handle, fairly sturdy, and made of stainless steel. If you have need for such spoons, I'd highly recommend them. If you're a bit old school, I think they'd work great for changing bicycle inner tubes.


Mir Sk13 Under Shelf Cup/Mug Holder
Mir Sk13 Under Shelf Cup/Mug Holder

4.0 out of 5 stars Not big enough for mugs, but useful all the same, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is probably great if you use small cups, you'd be able to hang 10 of the beasts under a shelf.

But I don't have cups, I use mugs, so in reality you can use the front, middle and back hooks on each side (6 in total) going off the width, I don't see why the middle of the rack couldn't have offered another row of hooks allowing 9 mugs or 15 cups to be hung. Other than that it's a great idea, really clever way to save space, instead of having a mug tree taking up room on your worktop.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect..., 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great idea, modern devices use usb to recharge. iPads need a heavy duty charger. This seemed like a great idea. I ordered, and was initially impressed, good build, about as simple to use as a light switch. Then I noticed the problem with the design....

I'm a big fan of the Amazon Basics usb leads, they are a great price, and really great quality but have a slightly larger protected usb plug. The USB sockets on the charger are too close together on a given row, to have two items plugged in at once on the same row is impossible. You need to plug in diagonally to get two items plugged in at once. Not ideal as I was after the ability to plug 4 items in at once. For the moment this will do what's needed, but the search continues for a good quality usb charger.

Worth noting is it seems to charge iPads at the same rate as the standard ipad charger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant transformation, best thing you'll ever do to your car., 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My cars a mk3 mondeo. The headlights were pitiful on dipped beam, and around town after a rain storm at night were outright dangerous, couldn't see a thing. Most of my driving is unlit rural back roads, so good illumination is a must. After a little research I ordered a pair of these, and they arrived quite quickly.

I have to admit I instantly binned the "501 extreme sidelights", turning your sidelights blue is to my mind just a little bit chav for my liking. I'll stick to road legal white lights.

So onto the fit. Each cars different. If you're not sure how to find out the procedure to change the headlights in your own car, then I'd suggest someone should take your car keys taken off you, and give you a set of crayons with the ends rounded off so you can't hurt yourself.

After fitting the difference was immeasurable. I now had dipped lights that emitted a nice pure white light, illuminating the road ahead. When combined with my already good main beams I had enough illumination to see, I've yet to find a condition at night where these lamps aren't up to the job.

So to summarise: nice bright white lights at night, they're the correct wattage to remain road legal, and they'll keep you safer. There's no downsides to fitting these. I'll be swapping my main beam and fog lights over to these soon enough.

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage, 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I know Philips are hardly a premium brand. They're kind of the Vauxhall of the electronics industry: you only pick it if you can't afford anything better, but it'll just about do what's required of it.

However in this case it didn't survive the first fit, to see how they feel. Major design flaw here, the neck band is really inflexible, and to make things worse it would seem they were designed for people with tiny heads. So much so that it was obvious from the fact that I could only get one ear hooked up. Trying to get my other ear hooked in, resulted in instant discomfort, followed by a crack sound. This was the neck band snapping, and instant rendering of my new headphones fit only for the bin.

Seriously just don't waste your money, get a decent set, instead of trying to scrimp.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for charging Nokia phones, don't use with a raspberry pi, 29 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a phone charger, and at this job it's very good. Charges up your nokia a treat, usual great build quality from Nokia the failing mobile phone manufacturer etc. No complaints there.

However, some people are listing this as a good power supply for the raspberry pi computer. They are leading you astray, it's listed as one of the 'problem power supplies' when checking the list of verified peripherals for the RPi: [...]
Basically it runs under voltage on two of the pins.

Now it seems like people have had this work with their RPi, but why take the chance of buying something that's been tested and listed as not suitable on the official list of peripherals for your RPi?

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely looking stand, 21 Sep 2011
This glass stand I got to replace an ageing sideboard my TV was sat on. I also got the integrated cantilever mount that uses the S&C Hybrid system S&C Products ZIN502425/BKI Universal mounting system

The build should be straight forward, but as noted by the other reviewer, the two tie rods that run up the back are a bit on the short side, making it difficult to properly put together. On ringing S&C they said they've never heard of this as a problem, but I've read a few other owner reviews saying they have had similar problems in the build. On a design point of view, it would be easier on the install if the tie rods came in the form of a long bolt. TOP TIP: the tie rods are easier to install if you attach the two from supports, and then insert them from underneath, and screw them into the top of the unit, as opposed to feeding in from the top as per the instructions.

Once erected the unit looks great, if you want to see one in the flesh, pop along to your local Comet store they sell them in there, so you can appreciate how good this looks. Once assembled its a really solid unit, and the back central column acts as an integrated cable tidy, making it clever as well as stylish. The oval shape allows this to back into a corner, and looks the part with modern black gloss boxes.

All in all its a lovely thing to look at and has plenty of room for even the most hard core AV aficionado.

Aquarium fish tank Precise thermometer
Aquarium fish tank Precise thermometer

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple yet effective., 21 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm in the middle of cycling a new aquarium, but wanted to keep a check on my water temperature, to monitor the new heater. I could have opted for an expensive digital model, but didn't see the point in spending so much money, when this does the job adequately. I could have gone for a stick on strip, but don't like the way they look, so I opted for this thermometer.

The graduations are easy to read whilst in the tank, I've popped it in the corner at the back where from the front its hidden by a plant, yet easily readable from the side. I particularly like the yellow background, as its easy to read the temperature in the tank. The sucker keeps it in place, and does its job well.

All in all its a tidy unit that gives peace of mind. Highly recommended.
