5.0 out of 5 stars Good boots, 26 Jun. 2014
Only had these a short while (few days) so probably not a comprehensive review but already they feel comfortable. Have worn them just walking to the shops and the only issue that I have found was the top of the boots rub against the leg a bit, which might become sore if worn for long periods. But I suspect that a long pair of thick socks will sort that.

Otherwise, great grip but will test when it's raining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, for £150 what else do you expect :)?! Seriously though, this replaced a clock radio that I had used for about 30 years and I decided to splash out for a DAB unit to see what the fuss was about. Not been impressed with the early DAB radios both on price and the quality of the sound. This unit however changed my expectations as it can receive both DAB and FM radio, offering the best of both worlds. Sound quality is excellent from such a small box, voices sound normal and not 'thin'. Music sounds natural if a touch too much bass, but this can be adjusted to taste. The volume is easily adjusted by a large dial on top.

The clock radio aspect is good as you would expect, alarms can be set daily, weekday or weekends and there is two of them so you can have different times at the weekend if preferred. The sleep function works well and you have the ability to wake up to a different station than the one you went to sleep with.It also wakes you up gently without annoyance.

If I have any criticisms it would be that the clock controls for alarms and sleep functions etc could have been made more accessible i.e. on top of the unit instead of along the front and in menu's. But this (for me) is a minor matter. The other issue is the display; it's bright and although it can be dimmed I still found it too bright at night, I have no idea how these manufacturers test these devices but surely it's not in a darkened room! The solution I found was just a small cloth over the display :)!

For the price it sounds great, the controls once learned are pretty easy, it's compatible with DAB/DAB+ (European standard) and FM. It seems to be an all round well made product that should, hopefully, last for years.

Oh, it also has a remote control which I didn't need but will suit some people. If money is no object then it's well worth considering.


BRITA Elemaris Meter XL Water Filter Jug, 3.5L - Black
BRITA Elemaris Meter XL Water Filter Jug, 3.5L - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This water jug is much better than the cheap makes that I have had in the past. The handle is well made and makes the jug very easy to hold and use even when full. As others have said the 'meter' is just a timer really and counts down a four week period. Although it is recommended to change the filter every month, but in reality I've gone six weeks before changing and haven't noticed any issue. Obviously, you might decide to stick with the advice to get the 'best' results.

As for taste, I live in a very hard water area and with this water jug I can finally taste my tea :)! The water is visually clear and tea made with it have very little 'scum or film' floating on top. Also, the kettle does not need de-scaling quite as often. The filters can be bought in packs and it's worth keeping an eye out for the odd bargain or price cut on the different pack quantities.

Definitely worth buying just to see what real 'clean' water looks and tastes like.

I can't substantiate the 'hi-speed' of these cables but the distinctive markings stand out ad-midst the clutter of cables that I have on my desk, so are good value for that.

They also appear strong and well made so should last awhile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonably clear, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book does a good job of presenting the available information on UFO's in a easy to read fashion. It contains lots of facts backed by documentation and 'real' (verifiable) people who make very credible witnesses. I especially liked the history off the Wright Paterson Airbase, which is at the center of this story. As you would expect, Roswell plays a central role in the story.

Ultimately, I liked this book but found myself wishing it was longer as there were several loose ends that I wanted answers to. Whether you believe the book's theory about UFO's or not, there are enough interesting bits of information that points to a cover up of sorts; even if aliens are involved (or not). People who believe UFOs=alien will like it, those that don't I'm not sure will be totally swayed by all the information presented; but should be convinced that there is more to this subject than is always presented in the mainstream media.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seems ok, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lots of hype surrounding this product. I use it as a hair oil and it seems ok, nice smell if yo like coconut. Haven't tried eating it or such so can't comment on what it tastes like. I would be wary anyway as it is a fat although apparently "healthy" for you.

Only thing I don't like is in this hot weather I have to keep it in the fridge as it literally melts into a liquid. This make sit somewhat difficult to apply but it can be scraped like cold butter and you don't seem to need a lot.

Worth a try.
