5.0 out of 5 stars Probably second best gadget ever after Echo Dot!, 17 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was very sceptical about this. I've had "sticky" back based holders before and the phone just falls off (I have a Nexus5X in a case so it's reasonably heavy). This has two bits of metal that you stick to your phone, which is then magnetically stuck to the mount. It works really well. The software is very easy to setup, linking yelp, spotify, Amazon Alexa, gmail, Whatsapp and more was really easy.

In use it's pretty accurate. My weekend car is an old Honda CRX with a non standard exhaust, so it's more noisy than a modern car. Bearing that in mind the voice recognition works very accurately. Far more accurate than the old "parrot" Bluetooth device that didn't understand anything.

Reading emails is reasonably dumb. For example, I get bills and business related emails everyday. Reading these takes account, reference and phone numbers and literally speaks them, so it's reading out numbers in trillions and billions! You get the chance to cancel reading of a received email, so just say "No". Get it to read personal mails from friends and acquaintances only.

Overall, this is a great gadget just like the Echo Dot. It works just like in the advertising video on the ZeroTouch Amazon advert. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 17 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As with all Amazon Basics cables the build quality is great. Don't let the "basics" name put you off. 6feet long, ideal for my Nexus5X to charge next to my bed. Great value too and quick delivery (unlike cheap tat from the far east posing as in stock in the UK).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tape. Sticks well and the end if easyish to find, 17 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you want good adhesive, an easy to find end and good value then these are perfect. There's lots of choice on the market for sticky tape, but it's often the case that a few more pence makes a lot more sense. If you need a wide tape in bulk, this pack is ideal.

1.0 out of 5 stars There are better books available, 26 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointed. I'm so glad I didn't buy the book version which is 3x the price. It's merley a pamphlet of 56ish pages. There are no illustrations (in the Kindle version) and there is no information that cannot be found elsewhere. I was specifically looking for more details on whether a vapour barrier was needed or not to help reduce loft space condensation but I didn't learn anything new. I have Home Insulation Manual: How to cut energy bills and make your home warm and comfortable (Haynes Manuals) and the excellent Collins Complete DIY Manual which are both superior with cutaway diagrams and fitting advice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value with some gripes, 19 Jan. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nice little pack. At first I didn't really know what it was talking about in the parents guide as I found some of the language to be a bit ambiguous, but once I understood what it meant I could help my daughter. There are two books with big words and an image to say which are fairly basic. The red books have a lot of very short stories (3 pages), some of which don't make much sense but I suppose it's about the words rather than the story. The words in red are words that "sound different" and need a bit of practise, but I have never done phonics or anything modern so I don't know how "the" actually sounds phonetically. Overall it's a good pack, but it assumes you know modern teaching styles which many parents won't. Its good value too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and a very small size, 3 Jan. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great value for a video linked baby monitor. It's very compact too, unlike the bulky units we had only a couple of years ago. The video unit is about the size of a fat credit card. This does not seem to have any lullaby sounds which is a bit disappointing, but at this price point it's still great compared to the competition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book for practise, 3 Jan. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great practise for my kids. I don't really know all the modern voodoo that they teach in schools, it's so different to when I just did printing, then curly, then joined. This teaches them the way that I see in their homework. Tracing characters is useful and spacing too. Its not a huge book, but good value and well designed so it doesn't seem like homework.

3.0 out of 5 stars A strong, smooth taste, 3 Jan. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm no wine connoisseur but I do like a good white every so often. This unusual grape is very smooth and has a strong taste. I won't say it has "hints" of wood/flowers/fruit because that is all a load of baloney in my book. It would be ideal with strong tasting meat such as Lamb or a hot vindaloo. I gave 3* because I don't really think it tasted much better than other lower priced rivals.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great kit for all facial hair but there is no kit bag to keep it all in., 3 Jan. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really useful little kit. Very cleverly designed so that the heads are easily interchangeable and the length of cut is easily adjusted. The addition of a detail cutter and nose/ear attachment is a bonus too. The main unit is nice to hold, feels well built but is quite light. It says it is washable too. My main gripe with this kit is that there is no bag/box to keep it in except the original packaging which is useless after one or two openings, hence 4* not 5. Overall though a really great kit.
