Sentik Two Function Rechargeable 18 LED Motion Sensor Night Light and Torch
Sentik Two Function Rechargeable 18 LED Motion Sensor Night Light and Torch
Offered by san direct
Price: £19.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but too bright and motion sensor failed left on all the time after 364 days use., 21 Jun. 2016
The light is very bright, I would say too bright for an indoor night light. It's not as bright as some, but it certainly lights up the whole of the hallway.

It would be good to have some setting to change the length of time the light stays on for as you keep having to come back and wave your hand at it cause the 30 seconds (approx) it stays on for is not usually long enough.

It does also get quite warm (not hot).

Had this product for just under a year before the motion sensor "decided" to stop working and the light would be on all the time after that. By the time I checked the purchase date I was 1 day too late to do anything about it under the 12 month warranty.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rattle, rattle, rattle, rattle. This thing ..., 18 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rattle, rattle, rattle, rattle. This thing is noisy. The iPhone is secure and the mount doesn't swivel, but the ratting as you're riding on the road is just way beyond irritating. No idea which bit is rattle as it all seems solid enough, but it keeps on rattling.


Premium Glass Chopping Board - 5 Swans Family On Water Design Large Kitchen Worktop Saver Protector
Premium Glass Chopping Board - 5 Swans Family On Water Design Large Kitchen Worktop Saver Protector
Offered by The Emporium Direct
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality, big glass workstop saver with a lovely picture., 9 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
High quality item, really pleased with it! It's bigger than the glass chopping board it was replacing, but that imho is a good thing. The picture is great.

The rubber feet are very sticky which is a pro and con cause it stops it moving at all, but I'm worried that when cleaning underneath the board that the feet are going to come off cause they really do stick to the work surface. They haven't come off yet, though so can't complain yet, but only had it for 3 weeks so we'll have to see.

1.0 out of 5 stars This lettersaurus can't spell!, 10 Jan. 2014
This review is from: LeapFrog Lettersaurus (Toy)
My nearly 2 year old son got given this as a gift at Christmas. The toy itself is quite nice, very solid and he quite enjoys it. When you press each letter it spells a word beginning with that letter. Unfortunately for some reason the letter X spells the word "exit". The people that programmed this toy should be shot. What is wrong with x-ray or one of the other many words that actually start with the letter x?!

Logitech Harmony 600
Logitech Harmony 600
Offered by DOMO EXPRESS
Price: £38.90

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible remote, replaced Harmony 885 which was wonderful., 9 April 2013
This review is from: Logitech Harmony 600 (Accessory)
Previously had a Harmony 885 which was wonderful, responsive, nice to use, but eventually the battery compartment plate broke and it stopped working. I purchased this model as a replacement and it is total rubbish. Same devices as the 885 on the remote and it doesn't turn things on all the time, doesn't swtich to the right input all the time which means I have to constantly go to the device in the remote and select the right input etc. This is a show stopper and constant annoyance.

Got no problem with the configuration program, although it's always been a bit on the slow side, but the remote just doesn't do what it should which is sad cause the 885 was so good.

Now don't know what to do as I'm tempted to go back to seperate remotes instead of forking out for yet another one.


BabyDan Multi Lock
BabyDan Multi Lock
Offered by SAFETOTS
Price: £2.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Easy to fit, hard to use, 31 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BabyDan Multi Lock (Baby Product)
Bought this to protect the fridge. Very very easy to fit, but it's a nightmare to use as it requires two hands to operate and even then is tough to get it to unclip. It's so hard to squeeze the lock that we've stopped using it already.

This is a great dance pop number from Daruso. Shame they've since dissappeared without a trace. If you like this try Da Buzz, very similar.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horribly slow, 4 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I expected a lot from this SONY blu-ray player, but have been very dissapointed. Basically it's all so horribly slow. Slow to boot, slow to read a disc, slow to get to the film, slow, slow, slow. It's like running through treacle. Instead I've given up with it and started using my PS3 instead, which is a million times quicker.

I expect to be able to turn it on, put in a disc and go, but I can't with this player, tooooooo sloooooooow. Shocking.


Scorpion 3 Light Gun--50-100Hz, Gcon2/Gcon, Laser Targeting
Scorpion 3 Light Gun--50-100Hz, Gcon2/Gcon, Laser Targeting

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work with 100Hz, 5 Jan. 2008
This gun does NOT work with 100Hz TVs. As it is claimed to work on 100Hz TVs I bought one to use on my 100Hz Sony WEGA. I sent it back to the manufacturer saying it didn't work and they sent me another one, which was exactly the same. Design fault with the gun and false advertising this as 100Hz compatible.

If it doesn't work as 100Hz there is no point to this gun. The G-Con is plenty good enough on it's own.

Avoid this gun at all costs.
