1.0 out of 5 stars The yellow grate at the bottom that controls the spread has snapped in two places after limited use, 12 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a low quality item. The main issue lies with the yellow grate at the bottom that controls the rate of spreading. After less than a year (and two uses) this piece of yellow plastic is now cracked in two places, meaning the ability to control the spread has now gone and you can end up with lots of the product you are spreading either being concentrated in one place or not coming out at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Noisy, vibrates, can be heard throughout the house, 3 May 2017
This review is from: Superfish Air-Flow 1 500g (Misc.)
For its size, this pump generates a significant racket. As others have said - it's not just the vibration (although there is that, despite the small rubber point feet) - it is just the noise of the pump running. Akin to a man digging a hole in the street about 10 houses away with the windows shut.

Ours was part of the Aqua-first tme fishkeeper set - I tried to set it up this evening to prepare the water for fish for my daughter's forthcoming birthday but I simply could not leave it on, it can be heard throughout the house.

Perhaps if you had it on carpet, within a noise insulating box (and fitted with a non-return valve) you might be able to muffle it to the point of being tolerable?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, lightweight car seat, 28 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value, lightweight booster car seat that is good for taking on holiday. The only things that detract from the design are:

1) The instruction manual is in a slot below the seat, held in place by a strip of sellotape
2) The drinks holders. Bit of a novelty item really, these elements don't have any depth to the holes and so would not be able to hold any type of drink upright during a journey, they are just too shallow. Better to omit things like this than include 'features' that simply don't work.

Well constructed helmet that comes with googles that clip onto the side. Our four year old loves it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking case, shame about the hole for the mod pins on the back, 28 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made, nice looking case. I agree with a previous reviewer that the hole in the back which opens up to the mod connection pins is pointless and missing the point and just looks a bit weird.

1.0 out of 5 stars Remote control stopped working after six months., 26 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As others have experienced, the remote control on our train has stopped working after under six months. The train is also weak in climbing slopes.

All in all - a nice idea, poorly realised.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cracked cylinder after just two uses / 5 hours total use. Avoid this brand., 26 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is abysmal. I used it on two occasions last summer for a total of no more than 5 hours to clean our patio.

I got it out this afternoon with the intention of doing the same job. Now when it is running, when you don't pull the trigger the jet washer pulses and vibrates and spits water onto the ground. A cursory google search indicates that this is a widespread problem with Karcher pressure washers and is caused by a cracks in the plastic pump cylinder head.

I would urge you to avoid this brand, which clearly uses low quality components and manufactures disposable consumer items rather than a piece of equipment that is built to last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly endearing kids movie [with an underlying anti-consumer message] carried along on a great disco soundtrack, 25 Feb. 2017
This review is from: Trolls [DVD] (DVD)
I was dreading watching this film with my 4 year old daughter - I was expecting something naff, superficial and throwaway - another toy tie-in film.

In actual fact, it is an absolute gem of a kids' movie - drawing on classic storytales (Cinderella) and backed up with a good message (being kind) and an underlying anti-consumerist message that parents will pick up on (happiness comes from within, not from what you consume). I grant you that this being a Hollywood kids' movie with merchandise tie-ins it is easy to identify the inherent contradiction, but if you are able to look through the toys and just watch the film as a stand-alone proposal, it does resonate. The film is carried along by a fantastic disco soundtrack and the influence of Justin Timberlake's input here is very evident.

One of the better films I've seen in general over the past year (including films for adults) and definitely one of the best kids films I've watched in a while - it is up there with Inside Out for the perfect combination of storytelling and underlying message.

3.0 out of 5 stars Let down by mobile reception & wifi drop outs, 14 Feb. 2017
The positives about this phone are that it is quite fast with 3GB RAM and has 32GB built in memory. The camera is a real improvement over the Moto G4 I was using before which struggled to focus in even normal light conditions.

The screen is bright & crisp. The mods seem like a bit of a gimmick to me - the magnet system couldn't hold the supplied back plate on around the house - I certainly wouldn't go anywhere with it and there's no way I would buy something like the camera mod as I would be worried about it just dropping off onto the floor in use & breaking. Plus the mods mean you have a load of exposed contacts on the back of the phone which look vulnerable to water damage & are a bit unsightly. You will want to put it in a proper case.

The battery life is very good & the finger print sensor is a useful feature that I hadn't thought I would make use of, but have found to be a meaningful benefit.

The big let downs for me with this phone are twofold. Dropping wi-fi connectivity randomly - meaning you find you are on mobile data when at home (and all other wi-fi devices are working fine) and poor mobile signal strength. I previously had a Moto G4 and whilst in many respects it's a terrible handset, it did benefit from good mobile reception. In my remote work location I would get 3 bar with the Moto G4, now I get no signal at all. At home I would get a consistent 5 bar in the Moto G4, now I get a signal that wanders between 1 and 4 bar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, works very well with the Moto 4G, 12 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case works very well with the Moto G4 phone. The inner case is slightly rubberised and fits snugly around the handset, and is a lot less brittle than other cases I have purchased for this model phone.

For the price you really can't go far wrong with this case.
