4.0 out of 5 stars Bin liner extraction., 3 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first ones I ever purchased, a few years ago, consisted of a flat pack with easy extraction of a single item. However, last time and this they have been in rolls. They are just slightly more awkward to extract a single bin liner each time.

Not as hot as I expected from my knowledge of harissa paste and more finely ground than shown in the picture. Otherwise, most enjoyable and useable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Favourite trainers, 21 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been purchasing Silver Shadows for a long time and I am quite satisfied by them. They have changed slightly over the years but the only negative change is the loss of the plasticholders for the laces which made it easier to tighten the laces evenly and to loosen them easily.

2.0 out of 5 stars Upgrade from XP to Windows 7, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although my search was originally as in the headline of this item (and as in my title immediately above), when it came to examining the item received I noticed that it said on the packet, "Upgrade designed for Windows Vista". After noticing this I engaged the Amazon Market Place supplier through the facility for emailing through Amazon, asking if they thought it possible to supply a different version. I received a reply from Kryonet but it states, "According to the small print on the box it should upgrade XP", and added that, personally, they always thought that doing a fresh install was better than upgrading.
I probably agree with the latter but it could cause a lot of additional work to upgrade prgrams, etc.

The battery cladding is cardboard, part of which had to be removed to make it fit the camera, otherwise the securing clip would not engage.

4.0 out of 5 stars FreeCell app, 16 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: FreeCell (App)
An excellent version of one of my favourite computer games. The only slightly annoying thing is the advert which comes up every time you start a game!
