4.0 out of 5 stars Great, 23 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works better than fancier more expensive items I've had.
The only criticism is why a standard mains plug and not one that works in a shaver socket?

It means I have to leave it *outside* the bathroom to charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected, 23 Jan. 2014

Really moves the air out into the room.
I was surprised by how quickly it started up, with the fire still warming up.

Make almost no sound, but circulates the air well.

Also give you a good visual sign of the heat of the stove- spins faster as it heats up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does a nice job, 23 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Basically, it's a bit like shoe polish in consistency and coverage. If your stove, like mine, has any decorative twiddly bits, you might need something other than a cloth to get complete coverage, like a small sponge or an old toothbrush.

Goes a long way- I think this tin will do our stove about 3 times over.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sticks rope to stove doors., 23 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't get terribly excited about what's basically a glue.

Two cautions- it's a bit thinner than I expected, so be ready to mop up as it runs; it's black, and can stain the mortar between hearth tiles if you don't catch the drips in time.

I don't know if the colour is because of the ingredients, if not, it would be better clear. And a bit thicker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great - will pay for itself in months, 23 Jan. 2014

We've sacked the window-cleaner.
This does a good job, inside and out, when combined with the extension pole and a small ladder, i can do the whole house format or near ground level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small, neat, fast, cheap, 23 Jan. 2014

What's not to like?

Neat and unobtrusive, can be wall mounted with screws (but actually is light enough to stick up with Velcro pads)
At this price, it's a gift.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of power, 23 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had a number of these multi-chargers in the past: this is the first one with enough power to really do the job properly if you have high-current items like tablets.

The one thing it lacks is any form of indicator light, which loses it a star.

I've not had it long yet, but it seems to be solidly constructed, and uses a flying lead rather than being a plug-top device, which I prefer for a variety of reasons (not least, when taking it abroad, you just need a lead with a figure-8 at one end and the appropriate country plug on the other).

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, but not so cheerful., 23 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This worked fine at first- yes, the tunes are mostly cheesy, but it's nine quid!

However, it stopped working quite quickly. I found that it seemed to lose sync between the bell push and the main unit, which meant pushing the button again and laboriously cycling through the tunes to one of the few non-cheesy ones.

But worse - even when sync'd, it didn't always work. If I took the bell push off the frame and brought it inside, it's fine (but useless, of course). Just being fitted in place seems to hamper the operation. Note that it's a good old- fashioned wooden door frame where it's fitted, and should present no barrier.

Gone back for a refund, and I'll buy something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic in scale, grippingly written., 12 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Great North Road (Kindle Edition)
Another triumph from Hamilton.

Starts off as a whodunit and veers in a quite unexpected direction.
Not least as you don't know who the victim is.

Confusion abounds - you don't know who the heroes and villains are, and which version of events is the truth.

Read at a single sitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully vicious, 12 Dec. 2013

Very different from the Potter books - a lovely dissection of local politics and small-town strife.

I'd not have recognised the author just from the text.
