5.0 out of 5 stars A great lanter for home, garden and the great outdoors, 19 April 2015
I was very pleased when I opened the box this lantern comes in to discover a well-made and attractive LED lantern. I inserted the three batteries required and was immediately impressed with the light emitted. Later that day I took the lantern out to my garden shed and when I turned on the lantern it gave a very powerful light quite adequate for me to be able to work in the shed in the evening.

The battery compartment is at the base of the unit and twists off quite easily for replacement of the batteries. A sturdy handle folds upwards so you can carry the lantern easily or hang it from a hook. There is another fold-out handle at the bottom of the unit if you wished to hang it upside-down. The top twists off if you just want to use the dome bulb inside without the reflector.

The large on/off button the front has four modes - off, low-light, full-light and flashing. The reflector inside the lamp enables it to give 360 degrees of lighting so you could put it in the middle of a camping table for example and it would light the whole tent. If you lose the lamp there is a green LED pulse indicator to help you to locate it in the dark.

The outer covering is rubberised so I assume that offers some protection if it is dropped accidentally. It is nice to know that the whole thing is water-resistant which presumable means that it will be ok if exposed to a light rain shower.

It says on the box that the batteries last 56 hours on full light or 144 hours on low.

A great product offering good value for money. It would be very useful around the home or outdoors.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lightweight knee support providing warmth and comfort during activities, 19 April 2015
This is a classic nylon/spandex knee support which offers warmth and gentle support over the whole of the knee area.

The support is easy to put on and stays in place once you have pulled it up far enough. I already have a neoprene knee support which is much thicker which I used when I had injured my knee. I see the product under review as a more "maintenance" support which you can wear unobtrusively, hardly noticing it is there.

It is perfect for activities I take part in like hill-walking and cycling and give a comfortable feeling around my knee joint and an assurance that the knee is fairly stable due to the wrap-around support provided.

It is important to make sure you buy the right size for your knee. Follow the instructions on the product description and you will make sure you get the right one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A useful high-performance sports-bag, 15 April 2015
This is a very well-made bag suitable for gym or other sports uses, and also as a general high-capacity bag you could take on a journey.

It has a zipped pocket at each end, one of which has a mesh panel for ventilation (useful if you're putting anything damp in it. It has two straps with a velcro fastener at the top for carrying the bag in one hand and also a padded shoulder which you can attach with the rings provided. The zips are nylon and look quite substantial.

The bag looks smart with printed Vetra logos in white. When not in use the bag folds down small for easy storage.

This bag serves my purposes fine and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a high-performance, lightweight gym-bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality blue-tooth headphones, 10 April 2015
I am very pleased with my Ausdom M07 headphones. They give a very good sound quality and are comfortable to wear. They give the impression of being a very high quality product with good manufacturing standards all round.

Battery life seems to be very good - I gave them an initial charge and have used them for over a week without having to recharge them so the 14 hour play-back time claimed on the description could well be correct. The range is also very good and I can leave my tablet streaming music in one room of the house and go from room to room without losing the Bluetooth signal.

The headphones are fully adjustable and fit snugly over the ears. The padding round the ear is quite thick and provides good insulation from noises around you as well as making the headphones quite comfortable to wear. The headphones fold down for storage so would be quite easy to put away in a carry-bag.

They pair very quickly and easily with my Android tablet by holding down the play/pause button for four seconds. I didn't realise at first that you have to do this with the unit turned off otherwise holding the play/pause button down merely turnd it off but once I had understood this it was fine and paired straightaway.

The packaging is very good - a very solid box which contains the headphones, a micro USB cable for charging and the user manual.

I have no hesitation in recommending these Audom M07 as high quality bluetooth headphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am very pleased with this Charles Wilson polo shirt in jersey cotton, 29 Mar. 2015
I am very pleased with this Charles Wilson polo shirt in jersey cotton. It is ideal summer-wear and the striped fabric make it ideal for any outdoor activity - a bit different to the usual plain colours which many people wear.

The shirt is fantastic value at the price offered on Amazon. The blue colour I chose looks very nice and the jersey material gives it a soft feel and makes it very comfortable to wear. It is 100% cotton and is fully machine-washable.

I ordered it in large and the size is just what I would expect - the fit is quite generous and like other Charles Wilson garments, the manufacturers have not skimped on the materials.

A fine product which would be a great gift for any man or just perfect for your own summer wear.

5.0 out of 5 stars This polo shirt is fantastic value at the price offered on Amazon, 29 Mar. 2015
This Charles Wilson "contrast" polo is a classic polo shirt made from 100% cotton with a contrasting white "placket" underneath the buttons.

This polo shirt is fantastic value at the price offered on Amazon. The balck colour I chose looks very smart and is ideal for wearing on it's own or under a jackeet or jumper on a cooler day. The pique material is classic polo-shirt fabric and has the benefit of being quite airy on a hot day. I am pleased to see that it is machine-washable.

I ordered it in large and the size is just what I would expect - the fit is generous and shows that Charles Wilson have not skimped on the materials.

A fine product which would be a great gift for any man or just perfect for your own summer wear.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality product and fantastic value, 29 Mar. 2015
This Charles Wilson "Heritage Range" polo is a classic polo shirt made from 100% cotton.

This polo shirt is fantastic value at the price offered on Amazon. The navy ("sovreign blue") colour I chose looks very smart and the pique finish allows air to pass through the material on hot days. Ideal for summer-wear.

I ordered it in large and the size is just what I would expect - the fit is actually quite generous and allows for some shrinkage due to washing over time. I usually find large size from the major chain stores fits me fine and this one is the same, so Charles Wilson have obviously not skimped on the materials.

A fine product which would be a great gift for any man or just perfect for your own summer wear.

Far Cry: (Grayson & Walker)

4.0 out of 5 stars A well-written novel with bags of local atmosphere, 29 Mar. 2015
The loss of a child is every parents nightmare. When 12 year old Heather disappears while on holiday with her friend's parents, her mother is launched on a grief stained path which will break up her marriage and leave her seeing ghosts of her dead child for years to come. When she remarries and daughter number two goes missing the burden seems unbearable.

Detective Inspector Will Grayson takes on the case together with his sidekick Helen Walker, a characterful couple who's aciding relationship gives some welcome inter-colleague banterand mickey taking to this rather elongated tale.

Will have a wife and children of his own, and before long the unthinkable seems to happen - whoever is behind the abduction of daughter number two has Will's address and is taking an interest his his children too.

There is a lot to like about this novel. It is well-written and the local colour and settings add much to the plot. The flat lands of rural Cambridgeshire are an ideal setting for the bleak, lonely lives of some of the main suspects and provide many remote places where bad things can happen.

The book could have been edited down by a hundred pages or so, but it's well-written enough that you get carried along by the gradual build-up of suspense.

I liked it and it's well worth my four stars - if Amazong allowed half stars it might have got four and a half from me. Certainly as good or better than most of the Scandi-crime novels I've been reading lately.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb product in every way - with a totally comprehensive accessory set, 29 Mar. 2015
Length:: 3:10 Mins

I have had small cameras before but never seen one with the capability of the Dazzne P2. I will begin this review by writing first of all about the camera itself which produces excellent video in a wide range of formats.

The camera has three buttons to operate it, power, shutter and mode and once you get the hang of the menu system is easy to operate. Within no time I was taking still photographs with it, and then I set the video to maximum resolution, wide angle and 30 frames per second and set it up in the car windscreen (using the transparent camera case and the suction cap attachment provided). I was delighted to find that the waterproof transparent case has buttons which fit over the camera buttons so the camer is fully operable while in the case.

My first attempt at using the camera as a dash-cam was completely successful. I brought the camera indoors and connected it up to the computer with the cable provided and was quite astonished at the quality of the video. The wide-angle setting ensures that the whole of the windscreen was covered and the images quality is little short of amazing and definitely comes into the high definition category. Movements are smooth and a visitors to the house said that it was just like being in the car.

The manual covers all the functions but as with all cameras you need to fiddle about to understand the full range of the menus. There are timers for every situation such as delayed shutter release and a function to break your video into smaller three minute files as it records.

The accessory pack is quite incredible and I can't see you would need anything other than what is included.

I won't list everything in the box - it would take too long, but highlights for me are:

- TWO batteries with charger - each of which lasts for a four hour charge so you can definitely go out for a day in the condifence that you won't run out of power. The charger itself is very clever and charges the two batteries together or singly and takes account of the power output of your USB socket while doing so.

- a 32GB San Disc micro-HD card - I think Nikon and Canon could learn some lessons here rather than giving you just enough on their cards for half a dozen still photographs. Dazzne deserve full credit for giving away a massive memory card with this camera

- waterproof clear case for the camera with full operability while the camera is in the case.

- Enough mounting accessories to cover every possible situation. Suction mount for a windscreen, bike handlebar mount, chest mount so could video your walk, stick on mounts with rotating mechanism (for helmets etc) - the list goes on. And all included in the price!

I commend Dazzne for giving you everything you could possible need with this camerea. Not only is it an excellent camera but the accessory kit bundled with it makes it the best possible buy in action cameras.
