Keter Factor Outdoor Plastic Garden Storage Shed, 4 x 6 feet - Beige
Keter Factor Outdoor Plastic Garden Storage Shed, 4 x 6 feet - Beige
Price: £293.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 4 Sept. 2016

Wow. I had not expected a plastic shed to be as good as this. Having agonised over wood, metal and plastic, I went for the plastic since it was durable and was going to a a lot easier to erect than a metal shed. In the event, the unit went together logically and solidly. Although, when it came to the roof, it was a bit of a faff working alone - to be fair it's recommended to have two people erect it - I managed fine. The whole job, from levelling the ground for the plastic floor tray, to the final install of the lockable door, took less than a day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brightens the darkness - cannot fault it., 7 Mar. 2016
This could be the future of bike lamps! Like other products from this manufacturer, it;s unbelievably bright and has a focus capability. So, what do you get? The main element is the light itself, which easily doubles as a powerful torch when it's not on the bike. The black metal case fits nicely into the hand, or into the bike clamp. There is a simple button on the end, which clicks once for full light, twice for 50% light and three times for qa bright, flashing light. Thus it's ideal for pretty much any night-time cycling situation. At just 10cm (4 inches) long, it slips into a pocket really easily. Off the bike it's an excellent torch and this is where the sliding zoom comes into its own. Use if for wildlife spotting or for close work to fix a fault on the bike. It's really very versatile. Next item in the box is the bike clamp. Made from robust black plastic, the clap fixes to a handlebar, with a squashy plastic spacer to make a snug fit. The simple screw mechanism allows it to be attached to the bike quickly, without fuss and there is a collar that holds the torch very securely. Again, a simple turnscrew makes detaching and re-attaching the light child's play. I have tried it on a couple of bikes; a road bike and a shopper and it fits each easily and effectively. Third item in the box is a bonus. This is the little rearlight, which comes in a flexible silicone body with a built-in lens. It uses the Knog Frog type of fitting that enables the rider to simply wrap the stretchy silicone loop round the frame and clip in back onto the unit. The twin-LEDs are powered by a couple of 2025 batteries - which are included, unlike the three AAAs required by the torch - and throws out an impressively powerful light, either as a steady light or pulsating at either a fast or a slow speed. Of course, both lights are waterproof.

Overall, this is a pretty impressive package. For less than you'd expect you get a top quality product that simply lives up to its name and is extremely bright. I received the unit as a discounted price because I was going to review it. I always review as I find and, frankly, I cannot fault this pair of lights that will brighten any cyclist's darkness.Xtreme Bright® LED Bike Light, Slate Black - Cycling Lights Include Both Front Headlight & Rear Light - No Tools Needed Attaches in Seconds - Great for Street Bikes, Mountain Bikes, and Children's Bicycles - 100% LIFETIME WARRANTY

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive luxury but very effective and efficient., 31 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The fact that I'm prepared to fork out three or four times the price of a decent phone case to get one of these tells you that it must be something special. This is my second Piel Frama case - and, to be brutally honest, the iPhone 5 design has the edge on this version - and the reason that I'm prepared to shell out what is probably a bit too much on a phone case is that I need one that's hard-wearing, easy to use, has all the cut-outs in the right place and offers cushioned protection in a quality leather.

It's a little bit of a shame that Piel Frama have gone for the slip-in case on this model, rather than the clip-in but that's a small moan. So far as I'm concerned, this lives up to the manufacturer's reputation for excellence. The phone fits well and the magnetic closure is positive and firm. what is important to me is that the camera cut-out allows flash photos to be taken without the flash bouncing off the surrounding casing and compromising the photo. And this happens on 80% of cases. Not with the Piel Frama it doesn't, and that small point is a bit of a clincher for me. The case comes with some useful slots for business cards, which is a bonus as I never have one handy when I need one. It also comes with a clever fitting for a belt-clip (supplied) but which I have never used as I slip the phone in my jacket pocket.

All in all, it's an expensive case but you really do get what you pay for,

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent case - massive value for money, 31 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As you might see from my review on the Empire and Taylor iPhone case, I have explored these things fairly thoroughly. When I got my iPhone 6, I handed my old and very, very expensive Piel Frama iPhone 5 case to my wife. But no, she wanted a blue one! So, at a fraction of the cost, I bought this. And, you know what? It's actually pretty good. Well, as a user of expensive phone cases, I think it's just about okay but, for a less fussy user, or a user on a budget, it's ideal. The closure could be a bit more positive but, hey, for less than a tenner, who cares?

As a professional educator I sometimes find that books for parents contain a lot of sense for those involved in education generally. In this case, Jess Lahey's excellent book does just that. I refer to it all the time and have recommended it to countless parents and teachers.

This is a must for all parents who think their child is anything from a bit difficult to a living nightmare. I bought it for a family member who is experiencing some problems in parenting twins and this book has proved very useful. Kurcinka speaks a lot of sense. For me it;s right up there with Jess Lahey's 'The Gift of Failure'.

This review is from: Goki 18cm Train Whistle (Toy)
We bought two of these s we have twin grandsons. They - and we - were delighted. Small children cannot swallow a big whistle and, even though they are not yet big enough to sound all three pitches at once, they loved the different notes this makes. And, when they are not looking, I can pinch one to use as a train whistle in a dozen folk songs!
