1.0 out of 5 stars Texas...no, British and Irish beef!, 18 Sept. 2016
Hard, dry, quite horrible. I've enjoyed jerky on trips to USA for years and this is not even close.
I love hot and spicy food but it needs to be labelled as such. This is way too hot and spicy to be missing a '3 x chili' sign or some kind of warning. Usually products have an 'original' flavour that is more mild, then a 'hot and spicy' a level up etc...

Not great meat. Hard and dry little chippings rather than flat squares that the American made jerky usually has.

I don't think British or Irish beef deserves the 'Texas' logo either.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just about 3/5...ad that is being kind, 8 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Update: 22/9/16 I've all but given up on this device. I use it for walking not just driving. Battery power is so poor. The inability to find locations is worse than I explained below. Just typing in a street name is almost impossible. I start typing and it guesses wrong, and won't let me get back to the keyboard!
...............................
Although I'm giving this device 3/5 I've had difficulty getting this SatNav to perform. I had to use Youtube to find info about how to reset the GPS that had arrived stuck on a road in Italy.
The most annoying issue is the address search. It is trying to be too clever and determined to 'guess' for you and instantly blanks out keyboard letters it thinks you don't need. Example: as you search for Green Road it may remove the letter 'e' from keyboard (greyed out) thinking you want Graham Road and jumps to conclusions!! So frustrating.
The map and graphics is a bit clunky and reminds me of something on the market 10 years ago.
Getting the device to wake up and start talking to me as I begin my route is also an issue.
It is a real effort getting the address or location inputted. At times it just won't allow you to type what you want to. Numbers and letters are greyed out for no clear reason.
However, it's not bad value as average sale price, does eventually work, and will look sleek and unobtrusive on your car dash.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good cleaning product, 1 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A good cleaning product. I wonder how many other cleaning products would also work as well on a car? I'm pretty sure some would. The 'No H20' claim is a bit strange considering most household cleaning products also work without water.

However, this has been tested on a car, and multiple indoor surfaces and it works nicely.

Good shine after applying with cloth. Great on mirrors. Really good on bath and tiles but not so great with limescale.

Would use again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good., 1 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very good iphone/Apple/Ipad cable.

Nice colour range. Does exactly what a branded Apple cable would do. Good, unfussy packaging that can be opened easily unlike those plastic sealed things some items come in.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm pleased to report that I can see a definite improvement ..., 26 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Reviewed by family member who is in her 70's.

I tried out this Serum twice a day for 7 days before giving review.

I'm pleased to report that I can see a definite improvement in my face texture and reduction of wrinkles. Amazing to say I see a renewed plumpness around the lower part of my face from nose to chin. I honestly can't believe it. The top half of my face also shows improved plumpness but my lower face quite lined, shows wonderful results. This is such an innovative product at a fraction of the cost of other similar serums on the market.

In fact, I can't wait to try other NIVEA products in this range.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good cutter, shame about the attachment heads, 25 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good cutter, shame about the attachment heads.

The actual shaver is very nicely made, feels good in the hand, nice rubber texture to hold on to.

Sadly, the let-down is the attachment heads and the sizer button. The button is somewhat 'dodgy' as it only moves by a kind of rocking motion. You press down and move and then HOPE it locks in place. The plastic heads are not particularly strong or sturdy and you could easily get uneven length just by pressing harder or softer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic, 18 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Far larger and more impressive than one might expect. This is a strong plastic Spiderman that is well painted and authentic. Comes with the official Marvel logo and artwork built into the base/stand.

Not sure why others have complained about lack of movement. Sure, he won't bend over or put his foot in his mouth but he is flexible enough!

Great for young children as 1) paint won't peel off (too well made) 2) parts won't snap off (too well made) 3) big enough that it gets noticed amongst a box of other, smaller toys.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice try!, 14 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I doubt the claim of a 100% success rate (see Daily Mail investigation article). If that was true, the company would be bought for BILLIONS by a pharmaceutical giant. It would be all over the news too. It would be the Viagra of the hair loss world.

No reputable company would make such a claim without even linking to the results. How many subjects took part in this test? Was it conducted to medical standards?

The product has made no difference to me but as I must review this within 30 days I will update if I experience improved results.

The smell is not particularly pleasant. The two products 'serum' and 'stimulant' have to be used half an hour apart. I'm worried about my pillows and may have to throw them away eventually.

Summary: A great way for a company to make a fast buck. Think about it - you have to buy it, open it, use it over a long period, then somehow try and get a refund if it doesn't work. Problem, it's been opened, you've had it for several months, how many people would bother asking for a refund. How would you prove it didn't work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed., 14 Aug. 2016
This review is from: Sage 50 Accounts (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've totally gone off Sage.

This package will expire in 12 months and nobody at Sage will respond to my questions.

1) What if my computer crashes - do I lose everything?
2) It's not available via cloud from anywhere (at least THIS package isn't)
3) You buy this for around £300 but THEN get offered to upgrade immediately and may end up spending a lot more when you discover features you didn't realize were not included.

For an international leader in accounting software, the lack of a "speak to a live assistant" on their website to be alarming. It smacks of "we just want you money not your questions" (what a a foolish and shortsighted business practice).

The actual software took nearly an hour to install on my fast, modern PC.

The style and usability feel amateurish to me. The whole interface seems dated.

It seems to have slowed my PC down.

There are far cheaper or even free options on the market that auto save to the cloud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good knives, 7 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very high quality set of knives. Each knife comes with a protective cover which doubles as a sharpener. The beauty of these knives is the non stick coating. I'm surprised more knives do not come with covers. A godsend if you have young children about the home.

The sharpener looks like it is made of plastic or ceramic and feels like it shouldn't work but it does.

Opening the packaging was really difficult. It's a sealed plastic cover and I cut myself trying to open it with scissors but I guess for safety they have to package this way.
