HJ Hall COMMANDO Walking Socks HJ 3000 6-11 Black HJ Hall
2.0 out of 5 stars Tough. Too tough., 18 July 2014
I was looking for a long and decently hard wearing sock, as I intended them for everyday use. I'd heard good things about these, so thought I'd give them a go. It turns out that they're far too tough, feeling like they're woven from some kind of plastic fibre. They're a specialist sock rather than a comfortable or everyday design, and far too engineered for my purpose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Washes and smells great, 18 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I wasn't put off from trying this product by Dave Gorman's comments on his TV show, and I'm glad of that. This is a fine dishwasher tablet, that cleans all types of dishes with all types of food residue, without having left residue once. It even has the nicest scent of any tablet I've ever used. The only reason it drops a star is that the instructions warn you not to use it free in the washer, but to put it in the tablet chamber. This may seem like logic but I have a slimline washer that usually has something in the way of the chamber, and can't always put the tablet in there. If you want to ignore their instruction, though, you take your chances.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
From the outside this case looks smart enough, being a black textured cover with the Logitech logo on a white (presumably fake) leather tab. This is positioned at the top right of the front cover, and helps the user know in which orientation the iPad is at a glance. Where the mute and volume controls are located on the iPad air (also top right side) there is a cut-out on the back part of the cover, which aims to allow access to these controls. Unfortunately, the angle that these controls are at on the iPad means that the cut-out doesn't recess quite far enough, and they are still slightly difficult to get to - particularly the mute / orientation lock switch.
On the rear cover… Read more
