5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely packaged, 8 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably worth the difference compared to generics, if only because they come in a reusable zip-lock bag so that you don't lose the rest after you've used a few.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy steel actuator that looks the part and works, 8 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is made mostly of steel, well painted black, and looks and feels well made with its brass end cap for the actuator. It is a bit 'Ikea' in that you put the main parts together on receipt but this is very easy to do.
2 years ago I bought 4 Parasene openers - they looked fine online and I liked the idea that they are made of aluminium as we have an aluminium greenhouse. However, one of the 4 bought then tore itself apart. I would never buy an aluminium opener again unless I could examine it for robustness. Certainly I would never buy a Parasene; they are only a little cheaper and not in the same class, being flimisily made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spacious effective microwave with easy functions, 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is spacious inside and easy to set up and use. It's functions are good, though some are a little difficult to read from the 6 LEDs in the display; the LEDs are bright, though. If it weighted the food for you instead of asking for the weight when you set up a particular function it would be near perfect but, perhaps,it is fair that it does not, given the price. The baked potato function is good and I like the chaos defrost too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to set up. Works. Low power consumption., 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does what it says on the tin and is relatively easy to set up and consumes relatively little energy. That is not the same as none, though! It costs perhaps around 10 or 12p a day to run in electricity because it is on 24/7. If it had the ability to turn off its warnings for specific files (e.g. email databases) it would be perfect.


Political Order and Political Decay: From the Industrial Revolution to the Globalisation of Democracy
Political Order and Political Decay: From the Industrial Revolution to the Globalisation of Democracy

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £22.95

5.0 out of 5 stars A framework for all of Politics, 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a must read if you want to acquire a framework for your understanding of politics. It is a very thorough and wide reaching analysis of the way in the political order, everywhere, works. Politics since the start of the industrial/French revolutions is analysed and the perspective is global . Francis Fukuyama's encyclopaedic knowledge is displayed in the carefully chosen examples from Europe, China, the Americas that illustrate the points made.

The book can be read straight through but is set up to allow of reading in smaller chunks. It repeats enough of itself, where relevant, to ensure that you are reminded of lessons from earlier in the book, or the previous book, when reading later chapters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice kit, 5 Feb. 2016

Works straight out of the box without any fuss and seems to be fast, though I'm not stressing it yet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth having because so much cheaper, despite some having flaws, 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These do work. However, some (not all) of the heads sent to me work their way all off the brush when it is in operation. Also, the heads don't seem to last as long as the originals. At the price, though, those are flaws that you could easily decide to overlook. They cost around a 1/10th of the originals so you can afford to change them much more often. That is is a good thing because both they and the originals work much better when relatively new.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice feeling kit, badly designed & inappropriate, very large carrying case., 5 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an initial review before the items were put to much use. The drill and driver, as pieces of kit, feel heavy and well made and the paper Instruction Manuals are fairly clear. A .PDF of the DHP458 Drill's instructions is available online from Makita but the DTD146 Impact Driver's online .PDF is not available.

The supplied box, is badly designed, has awkward, rather fragile seeming clips for holding it closed and is large. There is a shaped plastic liner but it does not hold the drill or the driver firmly in place. Everything can simply rattle around inside the box if it is tipped. The handle for the drill can be put inside the box but is not held securely; worse, if the handle is attached to the drill as is recommended in the instructions, it does not fit inside the box at all. Also, there is now way of fixing the depth stop tidily in the box. Overall, a very poor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and the non contact circuit test is handy, 10 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is quite a large as a multimeter and feels well built. The manual is in clear English. The function to test whether circuits are live without the need for contact is really helpful. The probes are removable (as shown) and sturdy. The hold function is helpful if you are checking something in an awkward spot and the backlight, which switches off after 12 seconds of being started up is helpful in dark corners. Overall, this looks to be a good buy and it even has a connected battery when it arrives, so it works straight out of the box. I have not yet used the thermocouple temperature sensor.
