Belkin N300 Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender/Wireles&hellip by Belkin
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 27 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent little wireless booster. Configuration is very easy: plug it in, connect to the booster's own WiFi network, open a web browser, enter the log in details for your existing WiFi network, and you're done. The booster uses the same WiFi network name and channel as the existing network, so is transparent to connecting devices. Portable devices should even be able to roam between the original and booster networks as you move around the house (although some devices implement this better than others).

The unit is very compact, and doesn't give off much heat in use. The bright blue LED might be a little annoying in a bedroom, but this could easily be solved by… Read more
Park Tool Super Patch Kit Park Tool
I've used several of these patches over the years, and they had all worked perfectly, until yesterday, when I came to cycle home and found my bike had a flat tyre. After getting the tyre off, it became immediately apparent what had happened: the glue on one of these patches that I had stuck on about 6 months ago had melted. The patch was lifting off, and a sticky mess of glue was oozing out from underneath. The air temperature in the bike shed was probably only around 28 degrees or so. I think I'll be going back to rubber cement and rubber patches from now on. Sigh.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for 1-2 year olds, 12 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very simple toy, for little children. It's nothing like Whac-A-Mole: the worms do not pop up at random times and so it's not a test of reflexes at all. Instead, pushing one worm down causes its neighbour to rise immediately. It won't therefore hold the interest of children aged 3 and over for very long. But for 1-2 year olds, it's great. It's robustly made: my 9-month-old has dropped it onto a hard floor from a highchair numerous times, without any damage. Although he doesn't quite have the strength and coordination to hit the worms down yet, he has grasped the idea from watching me, and is able to tap them on their heads with the hammer. My 3.5 year-olds were much less… Read more
