SPEEDLINK INT-SL-610006-BK Garrido Illuminated Optical Ergonomic PC Mouse - Black
SPEEDLINK INT-SL-610006-BK Garrido Illuminated Optical Ergonomic PC Mouse - Black
Price: £17.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable if you are OK with a wired mouse, 1 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This mouse is quite large in size and takes up quite a lot of desk space in use. If you use a mouse mat anyway (not essential with an optical mouse) this shouldn't make a lot of difference to you but if you have a cluttered desk and rely on a small space, the you may need to reorganise. This is a wired mouse and I found the cable got in the way a bit on a laptop. It works best with a desktop PC with a separate keyboard as the USB port will be further away.

Ergonomically, the mouse is comfortable to use and would especially suit someone with a larger hand. The wings support the little finger which otherwise drags along the desk (at least it does with me). It is sturdily built.

I don't understand the reason for the light but if this is important to you, there are three colour options.


Farewell to Upton Park: The Official Celebration of West Ham United's home 1904-2016
Farewell to Upton Park: The Official Celebration of West Ham United's home 1904-2016

4.0 out of 5 stars Lavish coffee table book., 28 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have to admit that I'm not a West Ham fan but do like my football and love a bit of nostalgia. This book is lavishly produced, mainly containing photos from in and around the Boleyn Ground. The photos cover fans, players and behind the scenes although I have to say that mostly they are taken from the final season, there is not much history here.

The main point seems to be a lavish reminder for the fans of the final moments in the history of Upton Park and as a book to proudly display so I do not really see the point of the Kindle Edition. The hardback book is large (A4 length and a bit wider) and the photos are large, many full page or even double page and rarely more than two to a page. It would make an ideal coffee table book to impress your friends, particularly if you are a West Ham fan and want a reminder of your final season at Upton Park. You never know, you might even see yourself pictured.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Handy, 21 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very handy gadget to have on your desk if you regularly need to mark your place in a book or document. It is especially ideal for marking pages that you may need to read at a meeting. The "SIGN HERE" tag on each one is also useful when you need someone to sign a legal document or contract etc. The adhesive on the strip does not mark the document and is easily removed without damaging the document.

The whole unit is small in size (3 inch diameter). The way it clings to the desk is very clever. You can pull the tags out one handed and the unit clings to the surface of the desk. However, you can slide it around easily if you want to move it to a better position. For people like me who "favour" a cluttered desk, it is very useful indeed.


Police Men's PL.93542AEU/02 Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Silicone Strap
Police Men's PL.93542AEU/02 Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Silicone Strap
Price: £155.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks good but has flaws, 13 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
On first glance, this watch looks very stylish which it is. It comes with a very smart cushioned case which makes it a classy gift if this is what it is bought for.

The strap is silicone. I prefer a leather strap but it is comfortable.

The problem I have though is that the display is not clear. The face is in in a concave setting with the "numbers" on the walls. I say numbers but they consist of I! on the hour, half and quarters and I in between. I like to see the exact time and find it awkward to do that without staring at it for a while. Also the date window is very small and the numbers are faint making them almost impossible to see without squinting hard. The day if the week is easier to see but difficult to set. When I received it, it was a day ahead of the actual day and I had to wind it forward by six lots of 24 hours to get it back to the correct day (you aren't supposed to wind it back). Then, a few days later, the clocks went back and I really couldn't face going through all that again. On the plus side, it is comfortable to wear and so far has kept good time.

So this is a watch that looks good but is a bit impractical to use.


Johnson & Johnson 500 ml No More Tangles Baby Shampoo
Johnson & Johnson 500 ml No More Tangles Baby Shampoo
Price: £2.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for older people too., 5 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
To give this a different perspective, I got this for my elderly Mother to use as she has been advised for various reasons (i.e. Fine hair and sensitive skin) by her doctor to use baby shampoo. She is very pleased with it. Her hair feels very clean and soft after use. The scent is not particularly strong, which we both like. She has had no adverse reactions to her skin.

I have also used it on my thinning thatch and also find it pleasant to use. Good value for a 500ml bottle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun, 29 Oct. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a fairly random mix of Pot Noodle branded products that would make a good Christmas gift.

To describe each element: A full normal size chicken and mushroom Pot Noodle is included - the only flavour worth considering in my opinion. If this is a survival kit though, how are you supposed to make it without kettle or water supply? My idea - eat the Pot Noodle at home and take some Kendal Mint Cake or a Mars Bar with you.

The spork is a good size, slightly smaller than a dessert spoon but larger than a teaspoon and ideal for carrying about and eating your Pot Noodle with. It is made of a sturdy but flexible plastic.

The poncho is OK but try as I might, I could not refold it small enough to get it back in its pouch after I unfolded it.

The really useful item (and the thing that justifies the price) is the charger. It is quite compact and comes with micro USB and Apple Lightning connectors and charges via a micro to normal size USB connection either from a computer or a mains adapter. It charges in about 2 hours from the mains and I managed to recharge my almost empty Android phone to 80% full with it. It is obviously a gimmick that could wear thin but when ordinary chargers cost about the same as this kit, it is worth it if you are OK going about with a Pot Noodle shaped charger.

This is not the sort of thing that many people would buy for themselves but anyone who likes Pot Noodles would probably be happy to receive one as a gift.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well and as advertised. Could be a bit warmer., 28 Oct. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The first time you use this, you just gently twist the plastic rod inside the bag and the liquid turns to crystals which have the feel of finely crushed ice. It turn warm quite quickly and is not too hot (although personally I felt it could be a tad warmer). Although the warmth lasts 20 minutes as advertised, it starts to cool after about 10. After use, the liquid remains in crystal form.

When you heat it in boiling water for the recommended 15 minutes, the crystals turn back to liquid and remain in this state until you twist the rod again, when the warming process starts again. I don't know how this works but it is a clever idea.

This is good for producing a gentle warmth on a cold day. The bag is a bit big to put into a glove though (and you would need two). but you can flip it from hand to hand to keep them warmish for a short period of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still on top form after more than 40 years, 27 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live In England (Audio CD)
Keyboard player, flautist and occasional yodeller Thijs Van Leer, founding member of Focus has kept a version of the band going since the early seventies. Sadly guitarist Jan Akkerman has long since gone but Pierre Van Der Linden, the drummer in the "classic" lineup has returned to the fold and the current guitarist and bass player are both excellent.

This concert takes us through many of the Focus classics plus some equally good newer material. At 2 and a half hours long, I never got bored and the music and musicianship is superb throughout.

Some of Thijs' vocal range has gone now but for a man in his late 60s, this is understandable. He does find his voice though for an outstanding rendition of Hocus Pocus at the end.

If you are concerned that "Round Goes The Gossip" is not listed despite this being advertised as the complete concert and is included as a track on the iTunes version, don't worry, it is there although unlisted on the cover (at least it is on the DVD).


Bow Fronted 3 Rail Towel Stand from Caraselle
Bow Fronted 3 Rail Towel Stand from Caraselle
Offered by Homesolutions2u
Price: £16.80

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 rail stand that comfortably holds two towels, 27 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is useful for anyone with a small bathroom and/or doesn't want to drill holes in the wall. It has three rails of differing sizes but they are spaced close together meaning that the towels are touching. However it takes a bath towel at the back and a hand towel at the front quite comfortably, helped by the angled tops of the rails. I find though that the larger bath sheets drag on the floor if folded in two so you will need to fold them further which makes them more difficult to dry.


Murad Redness Therapy Soothing Gel Cleanser 200 ml
Murad Redness Therapy Soothing Gel Cleanser 200 ml
Price: £25.00

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but nothing special, 27 Oct. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having used this for a week or so, I find that it is keeping my skin clean but I haven't noticed any difference in dryness of the skin. I do like the fact that it has no discernible fragrance - so many products have an overpowering smell and I hate that. It is gentle and doesn't sting like some cheaper cleansers.

Although it feels quite slimy upon application, it is designed to wash off with water so it doesn't hang around. Because of this I use it in the shower.
