5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable Amazon offer, 14 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's no point in even registering a new camera warrantee with the manufacturer if Amazon are going to offer a no-quibble five year guarantee like this. I know that if my £215 camera stops working within five years then Amazon will replace it. Fantastic customer service.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a man, what a film!, 14 Jun. 2016
This review is from: Jodorowsky's Dune (Amazon Video)
You think you know a lot about the world then along comes something else to open your mind. I had never heard of Alejandro Jodorowsky but then he's not a mainstream director. But, he could have been and this is the documentary of his magnificent interpretation and preparation to film Dune.

Talk about charisma and total belief in a project. He's like a messiah figure himself and no wonder he managed to get so far in assembling the dream team. It must have nearly killed him when the film was not made. All we have is his meticulously created screenplay - a work of art in itself.

Failure? There is no such thing in Jodorowsky's world. I hope he's alright now and maybe some enthused billionaire will pick-up the tab and we can finally get Dune made properly. There is only one man to direct it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, 26 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice 'proper' brown colour and easy to work with. Not that horrible dark brown. Covers the wood evenly and quickly. Amazon seller did a great job in packaging it (must have taken half an hour to wrap!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but worth it., 26 May 2016
Luxury! I hate cheap rubbish sacks and these are easy to tie-off and carry out to the bins for collection. Worth paying a bit extra for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Also good, 26 May 2016

Not too strong but very similar to ordinary Gold Blend. Perhaps Nescafe don't want to stray too far from an original winning taste. I would buy it again on offer but wouldn't search for it


Igenix Induction Hob with Four Zone Burners and Touch Control, 60 cm
Igenix Induction Hob with Four Zone Burners and Touch Control, 60 cm
Price: £249.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Does not work with copper pans. Nooooo!, 26 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have never used an induction hob before but jumped at the chance to try one. Thanks to Amazon for providing one but my review remains impartial and honest.

The hob itself looks fantastic - sleek, black and very 21st Century tech. We have a mix of pots and pans but a convector hob like this only works with certain metals (if a magnet doesn't stick to the bottom then it can't be used). If, like me, you have some treasured and very ancient pure copper pans they don't work. However, it's still a seriously impressive piece of kitchen equipment. It can boil water quicker than our gas hob and the safety element of not having a hot surface is a very big plus. No more melted spatulas and flaming kitchen roll!

Having two hobs in the kitchen is very useful and I hardly notice this Igenix one in the central peninsular unit. The fact that it's so safe means that it becomes part of the work surface.


YOU Window Cleaner 500 ml (Pack of 2)
YOU Window Cleaner 500 ml (Pack of 2)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff but usual rules for cleaning apply, 10 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This window cleaner is almost odourless but I detected the slightest hint of apple. It's quite a thick spray and so you can see clearly where it's being applied. Good sturdy bottle and the pump spray nozzle is well engineered.

I was hoping that it was going to be a miracle 'no smears' spray but I still found that it needed buffing with a dry cloth to get the best results. Good on glass and it was really good at cleaning my PC monitor screen in one go.

1.0 out of 5 stars My Bluetooth is on!, 21 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is what happens when you over-complicate design. Instead of having a simple on/off switch, this useful looking pad containing blue LED lights refuses to connect with my iphone (despite carefully following instructions after downloading the Philips app). My Bluetooth is on because I drove to work this morning making a phone call on my hands-free Bluetooth kit, my Bluetooth headphones connected with my phone last night etc... After numerous attempts at connecting this Philips pad I have finally given up. Which is probably a lucky escape based on some of the leading reviews on Amazon.

This pad is remarkably expensive and it has no business asking for so much personal information from its users. If it was allowed, I would like to sell it and donate the money to charity. Perhaps Amazon could issue a recall to Amazon Vine members? This Philips pain treatment pad would appear to be a Public Relations disaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really well made luggage, 20 April 2016
I am never, ever going to take more than hand-luggage on a flight from now on (I have queued for a lifetime at airport carousels!). This Aquaborne trolley 'suitcase' complies with airline size restrictions for stowing in overhead lockers. It's sturdy hard plastic and waterproof construction and I always look closely at the wheels on these things. As you can see from the pictures, rock solid. Nice attention to detail with waterproof zips and easy grab zip ends - nothing fiddly or likely to break off. The pull-handle also extends well with a choice of two heights.

This was a gift for review, thank you, but if it wasn't any good then I would say so. Happy to recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars BIG, 15 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The picture says it all. If you have a fancy kitchen roll dispenser then these Fiesta rolls might not fit. We don't and so the bigger the better. Absorbancy is good and the sheets are so big that they can be doubled over for particularly nasty spills and cat surprises!
