4.0 out of 5 stars A good buy but screen could be better, 14 Jun. 2016
I purchased one of these laptops in may from Argos for slightly less money than amazon and although it wont blow you away it performs adequately for the price, the AMD quad core A8 processor is 2.2 GHz and is pretty quick. when you first start the laptop upon purchase windows 10 takes a fair amount of time to set up, it comes with the usual pre loaded software which are pretty useless { i deleted them all} and the hard drive has multi partitions on it and coupled with windows 10 it slows it down considerably. the touch-pad is very good and you get proper left and right buttons to press which have a good feel to them, the 17 inch screen is adequate but the brightness on this screen has to be on full all the time as it is quite dull compared to older Toshiba laptops i have owned. i have now "upgraded" mine to windows 7 and deleted all the partitions on the hard drive and it has improved the performance of this laptop considerably, all windows 7 drivers can be obtained from the AMD website and the wireless from the realtek website. all in all this is a pretty good laptop only dropping one star for the screen but worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars not the best for the price, 24 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought this rubber snake along with various other snakes for a jungle display and found this one was a bit small for the price, although it says 66cm long it is very thin and shouldn`t cost much more than a pound or so. i also noticed the price has increased substantially since i bought mine so it is definately not worth the current asking price, the most impressive snake i purchased was this one GIANT RUBBER SNAKE 6FT(180CM) LONG THICK NICE & SOFT FILLING TOY SNAKE CHARMER FANCY DRESS

3.0 out of 5 stars No good if your family are going to use it, 5 Jan. 2016
I purchased one of these for my granddaughter a couple of weeks before Christmas from Argos which was being sold for 35 pounds with voice remote, with all the great reviews for this stick there is not much more positive stuff i can add as far as its capabilities are concerned. it streams all types of media including Netflix which is what my granddaughter loves, BUT there is a major problem with this device! to operate this stick you need to sign in to your amazon account once you have done this your kids can have a free for all purchasing apps games music video at your expense, so to stop this you can set a pin on the parental control panel but amazon have made sure that the prime subscription is not included as part of parental control which means your kids will inevitably sign you up whether you like it or not, i complained to amazon about this and they said
there was nothing that can be done to prevent this! unfortunately when the stick fires up prime video is in your face more than anything else which is why this stick is no good if you have kids that are going to use it. if you want something like this that is not going to cost you when the family use it buy a Roku stick instead Roku Streaming Stick

1.0 out of 5 stars good for fine soldering but poor quality, 20 Oct. 2015
I bought one of these soldering irons from maplins in june 2015 for around the same price as amazon, i used it twice for soldering very fine wires in a playstation but when i used it a third time it blew its element so i had to turn once again to my old weller soldering iron .now i know you can buy all the spare bits such as the element etc but to use it twice and then broken is really poor. so in a nutshell this soldering iron was perfect for fine soldering but the quality of the product is rubbish and nowhere near as good as a weller soldering iron

1.0 out of 5 stars very poor build quality for sony, 29 April 2015
i bought some of these headphones in December 2014 from ebay for the same price as amazon, unfortunately the headphones are now in the bin as they stopped working three months later. they actually are very comfortable to wear and sound good for lower end headphones,but after examining them there is a design fault with the 3.5mm plug which has three very fine wires as fine as a hair which quickly become detached from the plug. no matter how careful you are these are going to break after a short time as the plug seems to have been designed to break.if you are looking for headphones for around a tenner these jvc headphones are much better built JVC High Quality Full Size Headphones as my partner has had some of these for nearly two years and they are still going strong.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original cake mascaras, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought this for my wife as a stocking filler for Christmas as she kept complaining how all the top brand mascaras cost a fortune but only have small amounts inside them which quickly dry up, she told me that she used cake mascara in the seventies which was brilliant so i bought this for her thinking it would be the same but its not! she said this is weak and doesn`t go on like the old cake mascara she used decades ago which mixed to a thick paste but the longcils stays runny no matter how much she mixes it and basically said it was a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice passive 3d tv, 20 Dec. 2014
I bought one of these televisions from pixmania for £510 delivered which i thought was a good price for a 50 inch 3d tv firstly the design is really nice with its very thin screen bezel and as i have wall mounted mine the tv sits around two inches from the wall on a low profile mount with just enough room for your cable plugs {hdmi, antenna } the receiver is freeview and cable, this model is made for the European market so no freeview hd for the uk is installed {although this may work via cable tv}, this is the E model it is the K model for uk. the picture quality is very sharp with plenty of contrast and the sound is ok but lacks bass due to its slim size, the 3d on this tv is the best feature with its passive 3d, the 3d picture is as good as any as i have seen on the market, with the viewing angle not spoiling the 3d effect even when you are not directly in front of the tv and as it is passive 3d {the real d glasses from the cinema also work} the glasses are really cheap to buy and no headaches or eye strain like i get from active 3d tv`s such as samsung. the smart apps are average with most of them focusing on sport and weather although BBC iplayer works very well. there is also a netflix app which is not yet supported on this model but after contacting netflix they said they are going to add it to their list so the app should work very soon. the usb ports are on the side of the tv for easy access and i have been playing 3d movies on h264 mp4 codec from a flash drive with no problems and you have the 3d options to switch to sbs or hou and also there is the 2d to 3d converter. so to sum up this tv if you are looking for a passive 3d tv that looks fantastic with plenty of connectivity and you are not bothered about freeview hd then it is a good buy./Update: i have updated the software on this tv and it now has freeview hd working from the tv antenna.

1.0 out of 5 stars The most unreliable machine i have ever owned, 26 Nov. 2014
i bought one of these machines in feb 2013 from currys as my old candy machine finally broke down after 8 years good service, firstly in jan 2014 the machine stopped working and was fixed under the guarantee {the water heater element had blown} and now the machine is scrap as it has broken again! this time it is the bearings in the drum that have gone and zanussi have fitted a sealed drum in this machine so the only way to fix it is to buy a complete new drum which costs £192.00 just for the part, you cannot change the bearings in this machine { which would normally cost a tenner } AVOID THIS MACHINE AT ALL COSTS zanussi are not as good as they used to be and the sealed drum is just a way of creaming more money out of the consumer and preventing your washing machine repair man repairing it cheaply. this is easily the worst and most unreliable machine i have ever owned buy one at your peril.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent for icing cupcakes, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these because i needed to decorate 140 cupcakes i made for a birthday party, firstly the quality is top notch and it made icing the cakes using butter icing a doddle. it holds enough icing to generously ice 10 to 12 large cupcakes and although the supplied nozzles are a bit on the small size they still work well and produce some great results, i found filling it up quite easy using a desert spoon with not too much mess. cleaning it is easy as the top and nozzle holder just twist off leaving the stainless steel tube for easy cleaning, i have not used the cookie maker discs yet so i can`t comment on them but for icing cakes this is quicker and cleaner than the traditional icing kits that we normally use.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good quality spanner FOR C02 BOTTLES, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would not normally bother to review a spanner but there seems to be some confusion over the type of gas this spanner is used for especially as the advertisement just says gas spanner, the cheap price for the quality of the spanner is very good but as many buyers have found out it is not a calor gas spanner it is for C02 gas bottles.
i ordered six of these spanners for my place of work as they fit the C02 bottles that are linked up to the fizzy drinks dispensers that you see in your local restaurants and pubs and possibly welding torches as well. if you need a calor gas spanner try this one Propane Gas Bottle Spanner Heavy Duty
