4.0 out of 5 stars Good sound., 13 Sept. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These earphones produce a surprisingly good sound. That is once you get them correctly positioned in your ears, which isn't easy, with the right size buds (they supply four sizes). I tested them with my IPOD. Connection was straight forward once I had worked out that you press the middle button on the headset to turn on and to connect. There is a book of instructions that looks substantial but only a few pages in English. The web site jaybirdsport.com does not cover the Freedom 2. The buds for Freedom are memory foam whereas the ones supplied with my Freedom 2 are basic buds. 5 star sound but 3 star in ear comfort so 4 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fiddly and expensive but enjoyable for a few hours., 13 Sept. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We presented this to out two grandchildren aged 8 and 4 when they came to stay. The girl (8) was very excited as she had seen it advertised and had already asked her parents for a set. We eagerly began to set it up. It took over 20 minutes to sort everything so that it was ready to use. By this time the 4 year old had wandered off and the 8 year old was losing patience, however she stuck it out. She chose her design and loaded the applicator; this is when the problems really began, it was fiddly and took another 10-15 minutes to load (this is a bright, patient and competent 8 year old). Then she attempted to place the beads....impossible, they did not go where she wanted them to and often more than one would emerge, she ended up using her fingers. I tried and had to agree so we abandoned that and used tweezers instead, much easier (why aren't there tweezers supplied?)The 4 year old returned and decided to have a go, his fingers really struggled with the small beads and although he tried hard with the tweezers the beads went where they wanted to go. Not children to be beaten they carried on until they were
happy with their creations and they both squirted fiercely (bottle is much too small). Their work was not dry in 10 minutes or an hour or even a few hours, in fact they weren't completely dry until the next day! (it wasn't damp or humid, in fact it was a warm dry day). Having said all this our grandaughter really enjoyed it and went on to make a number of designs over the two days. Whoever decided it was suitable for 4 year
olds' was way off. My wife worked with this age group for a number of years and said that only a few children of this age would have the skills
or patience required to use it. A more realistic target would be at least 6 or older. We asked our grandaughter what she thought of it, she said she had enjoyed using it but that she thought she would soon get bored and she didn't really know what to do with the finished work. Not worth the price. Box illustration is extremely misleading; we were very disappointed by the number of beads included after seeing the enticing picture on the box. It's in a cupboard now with other 'must have' toys.

Panasonic NN-SD26HMBPQ Solo Inverter Microwave Oven, 23 Litre, 1000 W, Silver
Price: £129.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Quiet., 25 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Quality microwave. Looks good and cooks good. The inverter thingy does cook stuff evenly. Even defrosts my bread evenly. Up to 1000 watt, which is powerful. You can set it at many other power settings as well. Capacity 23 litres. Very quiet. Loses a star because of the price. This is not 3 times better than my old £40 microwave!

4.0 out of 5 stars Robust., 25 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It says in the description iPad 2017. Well I have the ipad air (first one). Apart from a slight mismatch with the volume button this fits perfectly. Robust. Looks ok, nothing special. It has a stand which is also robust.

4.0 out of 5 stars More convenient than bags of fruit., 25 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good product. Easy to swallow. I only needed to take one a day. I know vitamin c is very important for my general health and this is an easy way to get the right amount. The alternative is buying bags of fruit, most of which I don't enjoy eating.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
You can buy computer bags that cost a lot less, but not of this quality. Well padded to protect your computer. Well made. A bag that will last a lot longer than the cheaper alternatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy operation., 30 July 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
More accurate than wrist monitors according to my doctor. Easy to set up on the Ipad using blu tooth. Reassuringly tight when inflated. Regular check ups are important as you get older but also important for young people. Hereditary problems as well as lifestyle can cause high blood pressure even in the young. Early warning with a product like this can lead to prevention of serious problems later in life.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a quality product. Pedal bin that is superbly engineered. Good solid product. Looks classy. Smooth pedal operation. Lid falls back into place slowly. Never seen a pedal bin that works so well! As usual quality costs. So if you are looking for a budget bin look elsewhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Anyone with a sweet tooth should avoid this completely, 27 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Several people tested this product. Young and old. The consensus of opinion was 'awful'. Anyone with a sweet tooth should avoid this completely. The substitute sweetener is not sweet and three people reported a bad after taste. I could go on but I think you get the picture! I would not recommend this product.
