My music taste is mostly stuck in the 1970s: Turkish Psychedelia, Italian Soundtracks, US Soul & Funk, Library, Northern Soul, Folk, Krautrock, etc. I don't review books.

Oral-B Pro 3000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush P&hellip by Oral-B
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been using Oral-B toothbrushes for years and the oscillating action is really smooth and comfortable. It reaches all your teeth with ease and leaves your mouth and gnashers refreshed and clean. This model is no different in that respect.

Although it comes with a couple of brush heads, ALL Oral-B Pro toothbrush heads will fit this handle. The handle is slim and ergonomically sound. You'll need to leave it charging overnight to get a full charge - it takes 12-15 hours - and when fully charged I've been getting six days use when using it twice daily for 2 minutes each time. The instructions do recommend storing the handle on the charging unit to maintain full power and that… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes a dumb TV smart, 18 Aug 2014

Samsung 1.5TB Wireless Mobile Media Streaming Devi&hellip by Samsung
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Slighty bigger and chunkier than a stand alone hard drive, getting media onto this streaming device is straight-forward. Hook it up to your PC and drag and drop your files onto it. As well as a media streaming device, you can also use it as a backup drive. I loaded with approximately 1,800 CDs worth of MP3s and 120 films ripped to MP4.

Setting it up with my Samsung Galaxy Tab was also really straight-forward. It creates it's own Wi-Fi hotspot that was recognised by the Samsung Wireless app I'd already installed. You can use it with an iPad using the web browser (there is no iOS app) but it was just far too buggy and unresponsive to make it worthwhile.

I must admit… Read more
