Natural Solid Oak Minimalist Lamp Table
Natural Solid Oak Minimalist Lamp Table

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent craftmanship and delivery from Oak Furniture Land., 10 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered on Tuesday, contacted directly by Oak Furniture Land the very next day to arrange delivery for the very next day. Was given a 3 hour delivery window by Oak Furniture Land and contacted direct by their own delivery driver 20 minutes before delivery. Driver was very polite. Overall, excellent delivery service. Table arrived well packaged and undamaged, simply had to bolt the legs to the table top. Craftsmanship is excellent; definitely solid quality, heavy for me to lift. Is exactly as pictured and just what I was looking for as a coffee table. Advertised as a lamp table, it would definitely hold a decent sized lamp and be very stable.

Ideal for the job, cheap and even delivered free with Amazon Prime - it's exactly what it says on the description - very lightweight, cleans my whiteboard well, and stays well fixed to my magnetic whiteboard until next needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'One size probably fits most teenagers and adults with petite hands', 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although dispatched from California, USA, and was given an estimated delivery date of between 2 weeks and one month from the date of order, the package arrived quickly, in just under 7 days. The gloves are good quality, exactly as pictured and my son loves them, although he wishes they were just a little bigger, they feel a little short up the wrist. After a little pulling and stretching, the fit has improved. I don't feel 'One size fits most', but will probably fit 'most teenagers and adults with petite hands'. £5 postal fee was for trackable first class postage using USPS (United States Postal Service).

3.0 out of 5 stars Snuggledown Polyester Hollowfibre Duvet with 100% cotton cover (not 50/50), 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this duvet to replace my old 10 tog Snuggledown polyester hollowfibre duvet. I am still pleased with Snuggledown's quality and warmth; the weight has improved from 650g/square metre to 575g/square metre making it so light I can hardly feel it yet it is so warm. On arrival, it was very 'puffed up' and at first my duvet cover felt a little too large and so ruffled up. However, after a couple of night's sleep, the duvet settled and now fits the cover perfectly and the cover smoothed out. The only point I will make is that AMAZON NEEDS TO AMEND THE DESCRIPTION, as the cover is not 50/50 polyester/cotton but better quality at 100% (non-noisy as you move) crisp cotton.

Update: Please CHECK SEAMS and FILLING as ordered another which arrived with a 2 inch seam stitching fault which meant the filling could escape and another with less filling than other two and had no filling an inch from the edge. Both returned to Amazon free of charge for replacement.

2.0 out of 5 stars Loved the colouring as it gives off a warm glow - Didn't love the fact that it stopped working after only a few uses., 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a lava lamp that gave off a warm glow and this one certainly does. Amazon's website describes this as purple/yellow and on arrival when cold, it is visibly a yellow wax in purple liquid. However, reviewers had described it as purple/orange which is what I was looking for and once warmed up this lava lamp definitely gives off more of a warm red glow.

The purple liquid glows a purply red with the bubbles at the bottom glowing deep yellow through to a burnt reddy orange on rising. The bubbles in my photo look more orange when they are actually much more red than this.

It took about 1 1/2 hours from cold to start gaining movement, but was bubbling well in about 2 hours, but it really does depend on the ambient room temperature and if it has been in use hours before. On first use there appears to be no issues with my new 'lavalite' lamp and it is just what I was looking for.

Don't worry if the liquid sits short of the top cap level at first, this soon disappears as the liquid heats up and expands. WARNING! The lamp does become very hot so I advise caution with young children.

Update: However, after only a few uses the wax refused to bubble, no matter how long it was given to heat up. My daughter had to return 2 faulty Lavalite lamps to another seller before she got one that worked; one faulty lamp gave off a worrying electrical crackle and so was immediately returned, the other stopped bubbling after only a few uses, so I suppose it's a case of finding one that works.

Jan van Haasteren Castle Conflict Jigsaw Puzzle (2000 Piece)
Jan van Haasteren Castle Conflict Jigsaw Puzzle (2000 Piece)

5.0 out of 5 stars I usually buy Ravensburger puzzles as I like their quality but I'm really pleased with this puzzle, 19 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually buy Ravensburger puzzles as I like their quality but I'm really pleased with this puzzle. It's of good quality, colourful design and pieces fit well together. It also has a less shiny finish than some puzzles so will not reflect under artificial light. It took me a few hours to get going as it's fairly busy with many pieces that look so similar, and some pieces can fit into different places. I really enjoyed the fun design and the various humorous anachronisms. You'll need a large table as this 2000 piece puzzle measures 69cm deep by 99 cm wide.

1.0 out of 5 stars Water tastes of chemicals and kettle wall gets very hot., 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was pleased with the general design of this kettle with its clean design; good pouring spout; sturdy handle; and, being left handed, double sided level indicator (although not the easiest indicator to see in certain lighting). It was also quieter than my old Kenwood. Unfortunately, this Philips HD4644 kettle gets a thumbs down from me and a one star rating as it gets very hot to touch after boiling and most importantly, I could not get a decent cup of tea from it; after multiple boils and rinses, the water still has a very strong chemical taste, maybe a result of cheap plastics! Not fit for purpose so returned for refund.

1.0 out of 5 stars Made by Hama not Duragadget, and designed for a 10.2" netbook not the 10.6" Surface tablet, 1 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item took 2 weeks to dispatch and posted via Germany (not UK) which added to the delay. It was made by Hama not Duragadget, and was designed for a 10.2" netbook not the 10.6" Surface tablet. I immediately contacted the seller and they were very apologetic, issued an immediate refund, and allowed me to discard or keep the case. Overall, poor service and product description but good customer relations!

However, since writing this review, the company have sent me a letter asking me to 're-evaluate' my purchase and to remove my `negative or neutral feedback' which is not the point of Amazon's review service; customer service not with-standing, this product was not as advertised and I wish for future potential buyers to be aware of this. I understand that the company's goal is 100% customer satisfaction, but I wasn't aware that the review system was positive feedback or no feedback.
