Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I admit I'm not a frequent DIYer and I had never used a nailgun before this one, so unfortunately I can't compare it to its competition. However, perhaps this review will be useful to other nailgun neophytes.

The tool is cabled and, since it doesn't require a large battery, is fairly light as a consequence. I found it easy to handle, though I never had cause to nail or staple anything in an awkward or remote position (fortunately). I used it for stapling heavy fabric, for nailing netting onto garden posts, and for fixing a sign. It performed well for each of these tasks, though occasionally a nail would have to be manually finished off. On the whole it saved me a lot of time and… Read more

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an attractive, sturdily built kettle. The chrome finish should look classy on most countertops (so long as you wipe off the crumbs and cathair occasionally) and the squat style serves to differentiate it from most upright kettles. This comes at the cost of a slightly greater bottom radius, so bear that in mind if space is at a premium. Water boils quickly and has no discernible extra taste, which I've found some cheap plastic kettles to have. It's also quiet.
