Concept Boy's Assassin Bike - White/Blue, 20 Inch
Concept Boy's Assassin Bike - White/Blue, 20 Inch

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly great value for money!, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this 4 stars because the bike is aimed at the low end of the market and has all the tech you'd expect on something more expensive.

My only -1 Star from 5 Star is the quality of some of the fittings - for example, the headstock/steering tube main bolt has an "allen" bolt. The allen key hole is off centre! Something I've never seen before.... so this is a low budget bike with some low quality fittings - but hey, for the money.... its a bargain!

Any other cheap quality moving parts that may wear prematurely, I'll replace with propreitary kit from other manufacturers..

Hope this is helpful to you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely and snug & warm jacket - let down by small fitting underarms, 2 Feb. 2013
This jacket is a lovely warm fleece lined (what they call Sherpa fleece - which is fluffy and warm)....

The jacket I bought here was too small - mainly because the armpits were too tight. The main body wasnt too tight but the arms - it would only fit with a T-shirt under!!!!

So buy a size larger if you want one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor batch or just unlucky? Loose stitching on TWO pairs!!!, 2 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this Colorado boot thinking the reviews so far had been great....

I wore my first pair of boots about 4 times and noticed the stitching coming undone where the top ankle part (2 loops and one eyelet part) joins the main body.

Amazon did a great job sending a replacement pair - BUT the exact same fault is apparent on that replacement pair and that's straight from the box!!! I noticed the stiching was loose and pulled slightly on the leather - ping and stitching came undone.

Other than that - the fit was great (if not quite a wide fitting... I bought extra thick socks to wear to make these a perfect fit & therefore great for winter use!).

***EDIT***
I bought some other CAT boots as a replacement for the obviously batch manufacturing fault on the Coloradao.... they are no where near as good quality as the Coloradao. The leather looks and feels like hard plastic. Where the CAT logo is stamped, the leather is so hard that the logo has creased the leather.
I am having to return these boots because the tab that pulls the boot on has started to come unstitched/un glued with just one try-on..... maybe CAT have a stitching problem?

Utter junk.

Sounds like I'm being fussy - but for the sake of reliability - I have a VERY old pair of CAT boots that have a split in the rubber but they are still waterproof and still warm.... just battered and bruised now.... so the old CATs are obviously great - the new ones - manufactured where? Progress?????

1.0 out of 5 stars Quality issues with 2 failures????, 1 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this combo for use in the bedroom - ideal footprint & slimline and looks 'nice' on a cantilever bracket from the wall.

The first one didn't even turn on... green light at the front but nothing on the screen. No problem with swapping at Amazon and got a new one within a few days.

It worked quite well for a few days and then the DVD player started being erratic. The commands would be ignored whilst the disc could be heard spinning - yet nothing on screen other than the "dvd welcome" wallpaper... then it refused to eject the disc. The only way out was to turn off the power and turn back on - you can then get your disc out!

Not happy with the overall quality of the product and I cannot recommend anyone buy this TV/DVD combo!

:(

3.0 out of 5 stars A poor walkie-talkie but not a bad toy, 5 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The microphone of the first one was broken - so despite the key making the other "click" it wouldn't allow voice. The other unit was fine and was loud enough to be heard out of the speaker of the faulty one.
Obviously a very cheap build quality - made to a budget and sold at a price point that doesn't allow quality. You get what you pay for.

It was replaced & now they are working fine.

Not the best for walkie talkie use - in fact you can hear the "hiding" child saying "can you hear me over" better than from the toy itself haha

So nice for CARS but not so good for proper use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing after a previous Tefal steam gen iron, 20 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Philips is a replacement for a 3 year old Tefal that went BANG.
Philips GC8323/02 Steam Generator Ironing System
This Philips iron has a detachable HUGE water tank - I think this is its main bonus point.
(Tefal had a small integrated tank)

The steam blast at 5bar and 2 selections is great.
(Tefal was limited in burst pressure)

I do feel - although have not tried - the 100% steam ON function would work
(Tefal could do this but would get tired and give up)

It doesn't iron any better than my old Tefal though... so is it overkill to have swanky high pressure boost? The theory is that the steam can penetrate better.

That ends the good news I'm afraid. Considering there's at least 3 years worth of product improvement/development - that's not enough considering the downsides!

First off, there's no way to strap down the iron - so it could be pulled/knocked off the cradle easily.
(Tefal had a clip & you could carry the iron/base all in one)

The cradle is not a perfect fit and the ergonomics means the iron sits on the base with room for lateral movement.
(Tefal fitted easily and snugly)

The pumping action to take water from the tank into the steam gen is so loud and noisy, my 2 yr old cried when he first heard it. It is so bad that the iron rattles to and fro on the base!!!!
(Tefal had steam gen only 3bar but no noise whatsoever associated with any pumping at all)

The steam trigger under the handle is not sensitive enough which means it needs a good squeeze (gets harder the hotter the iron gets).
(Tefal iron was easy to use).

Above scenario means you hold the handle further back - which for me is an unnatural ironing poistion. It also means the feed pipe of steam coming into the iron unit is touched by the heel of your hand and so although not hot enough to get burned, it makes you jump in expecation of a burn.
(Tefal never had any issues).

Sorry Philips I would not recommend this product.
