Quiksilver Basic B Redemption Backpack - Tango Quiksilver
4.0 out of 5 stars Basic but cheerful., 9 April 2014

That said, the stitching and zips appear sturdy, the material looks to be shower-proof and the colour-scheme is bright and interesting so here's hoping it'll do a few years decent service.
Royal Worcester Country Gent Mug by Portmeirion

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and easy to use, 18 Feb 2014
I see reviews here giving this product a one star rating, bemoaning the fact that this bulb is not bright enough to light a room. Well if you do your research a 4.2w LED bulb (as this particular Auraglow one is), is about the equivalent of a 40w incandescent bulb so yes, there's no way it will fill a typical room. However that's not the fault of the bulb, more a case of people not bothering to do a little investigation of what it is they're buying. It's rather like buying a Ferrari and then complaining that it's only got 2 seats... if you want 4 seats then do a bit of research before you buy!

That aside, this bulb is about the same size as a typical incandescent bulb and works… Read more
