5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and does the job, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works like a dream. So long as you have got a decent TV aerial/reception this will put TV programmes on to your PC. I've only used it in conjunction with a fixed domestic aerial – cannot speak for the portable supplied which I suspect will depend on signal reception quality. This unit comes with a good software suite which does everything required. Handy if you want to record programs direct onto your computer for later manipulation. Very good price and therefore recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best razor I've ever used, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is easily the best electric razor I have ever used. Having now had it for a year or so I just wish I had purchased it earlier. The swivel settings and adjustable bristles setting all work well. I was concerned that being battery operated it might not work as well as a mains only razor but this was not the case. It recharges quite happily in its holder/cleaning utility but on occasion I have taken it on holiday for a week with its portable charger and have not found it necessary to recharge. When away from its docking station and automatic cleaning fluid it's very easy to clean it by removing the shaving head and rinsing under running water - the alternative of taking the docking station with you is not really worth the trouble. One of the best features of this item is its self cleaning unit which works in conjunction with replaceable cleaning fluid cartridges. The cleaning unit indicates the level of cleaning required and I find that it requires a clean every 2/3 days and a new cartridge perhaps once every 3/4 months; thus a year's supply (box of 3 cartridges) is about £12. The benefit is a perfectly clean razor which works just like new every time and a fresh clean smell of aftershave-like cleaning fluid on its foil. This almost makes it a pleasure to get up in the morning!

For the ladies - this is one of the nicest presents you could get for your man: not particularly cheap but worth every penny. Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of domestic kit, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really useful tool. Having recently replaced a lot of carpets with hard flooring it was rather inconvenient to use either the upright or mini vacuums to remove the inevitable dust which gathers on hard flooring (and enters more or less permanently unseen into carpet). This cordless cleaner effortlessly sucks up the dust by just gliding over the floor surface and has a very clever swivel handle which makes getting into corners and other awkward places very easy. Be aware that on a full charge it will only operate for about eight minutes – that may sound a short time but because it glides over the floor so easily and quickly it is not a limitation in practice – and why would any right minded person want to spend more than eight minutes doing vacuuming anyway? Our routine is to put it back on charge immediately after use – leave it on overnight and it will be ready next morning. The clever swivelling handle also makes it very easy for storage. Thoroughly recommended because it's so easy to use, inexpensive and has a nice, modern, latest high-tech feel about it.

A decent product made much more attractive by Amazon's is keen pricing. Good instructions and well within the capabilities of anybody who is good at DIY and can handle a chisel and a drill.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well made and excellent value. My existing handles had dodgy keys and locks. It was cheaper to use this excellent product (which comes with a key) than to buy new keys on their own. I've renewed all the handles in my house using these which are very easy to fit in a couple of minutes and if you have modern standard UVPC Windows there is no adjustment required to the length of the spindle. In comparison, my local supplier wanted £15 per handle to supply. A no-brainer in my opinion. Delivery very quick and decently packaged in a jiffy bag. Well recommended.

Nicely printed and produced book and well worth its price for the photographs alone. With Steven Parissien's excellent commentary it becomes an outstanding document. Highly recommended to those who are interested in the development of the railway station and its architecture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little model, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent little model at a very reasonable price. Displayed in wings fully-back position with the landing gear down, which is in fact an emergency- only configuration. It is not possible to remove the landing gear without damaging the model, in order to make the display more representative. Hence only four stars.Overall, good value and looks nice on display.

The Marvels of Flying: Air Travel Before 1950
The Marvels of Flying: Air Travel Before 1950

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.95

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book. If you are the sort of person who enjoys Topgear's James May’s reminiscences of his childhood toys and fascination with technology I’m sure you will like this book also. Andrew Emmerson is an accomplished author of readable technical books and in tackling this subject he has covered the history of pre-1950 air travel comprehensively in both textual and graphic form. The numerous colour and black-and-white illustrations, especially the period posters, are worth the price of this book alone.

The book is beautifully printed and finished in the usual Capital Transport Publisher’s style and the handy format makes for a very pleasant reading experience. For less than £10 this is outstanding value. Highly recommended.
