Silver stud earrings set with Sapphire blue SWAROV&hellip pewterhooter
5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice earrings, 8 July 2014
These silver earrings are much better than I thought they would be for the price. Good solid posts with nice backs and the swarovski crystal (a 4mm one I believe) seems genuine and catches the light very nicely.
As I buy swarovski crystals like this to decorate my daughter's skating garments, I was worried these earrings might look a little "homemade" but they are not at all. Much nicer than anything you can get on the high street for even double the price. I've had lots of compliments about them as they tend to catch the light. I will almost certainly look at the other colours available.
BT Broadband Extender 500 Kit, Powerline Adapter by BT
We bought a smart TV without realising it was not quite as smart as we'd been led to believe as it could not pick up wifi without us purchasing a dongle or plugging it into the internet.

However, had the TV been in the same room we could have plugged it straight in via an ethernet cable, thus negating the need for a dongle. Instead, this was a TV for a back room and there was no way of running a cable round.

We nearly took the TV back but then my father-in-law… Read more
August DTA270 Freeview TV Aerial - Portable Indoor&hellip by August
1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work for us, 2 July 2014
I'm guessing these reviews will always be subjective because it's easier to pick up a signal in some parts of the country than others. However, we plugged this in and tried tuning it over and over and it couldn't pick up a single channel of any sort. We've used portable aerials before with no problem here. I did wonder when I received it if it would work as it was much cheaper and flimsier looking than you would think from the picture and than I expected. It looks like a very cheap Chinese import and has no real descriptions of its ability/ range or any instructions at all. My own fault for not realising you get what you pay for, I guess.
From other reviews, it obviously works for some… Read more
