5.0 out of 5 stars Wear the gloves and goggles if you have them 'cause it works., 14 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not often you buy something these days that really works but this stuff does. It needs leaving at least overnight ( I left mine racks in for 18 hours ) and the bag didn't close properly but that didn't stop it working. Wear the gloves when you take your racks out of the bag and goggles as well if you have them because this stuff could take the chrome off a trailer hitch. Well worth the money just for the time and labour it saved.

Discontinued by the manufacturer ! I wish I had known that before I bought the printer. Anyway, these cartridges are accepted as HP's own and the printer accepted them no problem. Good value for money with quick delivery, I shall buy some more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A silk purse for sows ear money, 30 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To be honest I didn't expect to get a silk purse for sows ear money so I was very pleasantly surprised with my chainsaw. Everything was in the box including a carrying bag, It was easy to assemble and it started fourth pull. It does the job very well and at under £90 has already paid for itself. My only criticism is the instruction manual could have been compiled and laid out better but that is a minor detail. If you want a good cheap, and so far reliable, chainsaw you could do a lot worse. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars A cross between The Poseidon Adventure and Transformers, 29 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Noah [DVD] (DVD)
Just about every culture has a Flood Myth and I think you would be hard pressed to find someone in ours who hasn't heard of Noah and his Ark. Sadly the makers of this movie ditched the Biblical account we all know and gave us a cross between The Poseidon Adventure and Transformers instead. With modern special effects to call upon ' Noah ' should have been an epic along the lines of The Ten Commandments or Ben Hur but this is an epic only in the endurance it takes to stay till the end. God has been reduced to some sort of bad tempered creator, the flood comes from below ground and Noah is a megalomaniac child killer. Filmed in Iceland it looks bleak from the start and looks miserable even without the flood. There are some miraculous trees from which Noah ( and the Transformers ) build the Arc but that's about as cheerful as it gets. In trying to be politically correct and offend no-one they will probably do the opposite. Not my cup of tea and I suspect not yours either.


The Great Escape [DVD] [1963]
The Great Escape [DVD] [1963]

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, 22 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first saw this film back in 1963 after spending the day at the Biggin Hill Air Show. I thought it was a classic then and age hasn't changed that opinion. For those who may not know the film tells the story of the mass escape of allied airmen from Stalag Luft III in 1944 and the building of the tunnels that led up to it. Based on real events a lot of liberties were taken with the truth but it is still great storytelling and well worth watching. Although The Great Escape often makes it into the TV schedules it is well worth buying a copy of the DVD so you can watch it without five minutes of adverts every 8 or 9 minutes. No sex, minimum violence and a story well told, highly recommended.


The Arsenic Century: How Victorian Britain was Poisoned at Home, Work, and Play
The Arsenic Century: How Victorian Britain was Poisoned at Home, Work, and Play
by James C. Whorton
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.88

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read and hard to put down, 3 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a great read and really tells how lucky the average Victorian was to survive the poisoned sweets, wall paper, candles and Lord knows what else they put arsenic in, and that seemed to be just about everything. Well written, full of interesting facts and hard to put down. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 3 Jun. 2014

These braces are well made, feel secure and comfortable to wear. Make sure you adjust them for length before wearing them because they are not that easy to adjust once they have been worn. All in all a good product at a sensible price and well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This frying pan is excellent value for money with nothing flimsy or cheap looking about it. There are no screws to loosen and the whole thing is made from good, heavy stainless steel. It performs well on our electric hob and the kids used it for a fry-up on a camping weekend, the only problem was getting them to give it back ! It is easy to clean and polishes back to a high shine with a Brillo pad. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value Superfast delivery, 27 Feb. 2014

I ordered this tube to replace the tubes on my carpet cleaner. I placed my order at 5.37 on a Thursday afternoon and it arrived with the postman at 9.00 the following morning. Now that is what I call service ! The tube itself is perfect for what I wanted it to do and has already outperformed the originals fitted by the manufacturer. Both the seller and the goods highly recommended.
