Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm very happy with these powerline adapters - they are fast, and I've had no interruption of signal since using them. Whilst not especially small, the top-mounted ethernet port is invaluable. I'm using mine in a plug socket along the skirting board, and have found it fiddly to get the ethernet cables to fit (normally have to resort to using an unbooted cable).

I'm currently using mine to connect a Raspberry Pi to my home network and stream videos from a NAS drive, and it suits this use perfectly.
Cirrus Earplugs Premium Soft Foam by Cirrus
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I use these earplugs when I want to guarantee a good night's sleep, and they're very effective. I occasionally sleep with the window open, and have previously been woken up by outside noise. With these in, no outside noises wake me up (though fortunately, I can still hear my alarm clock) and they are comfortable enough that I'm not aware of them during the night.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bright, but not warm, 8 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm pretty happy with this bulb, the light is bright and crisp - but I would definitely not describe it as warm, especially compared to traditional halogen bulbs. Because of this, it tends to show up dust and defects more than a traditional bulb.

Heat output is minimal, and it barely feels warm to the touch.

The only drawback is that the outer casing is white plastic. This makes the bulb look cheap, and is especially out of place is chrome light fittings. It's inconvenient to not be able to dim this bulb, but at the price point, you can't complain.
