Vax V-125A All Terrain Upright Carpet Washer
Vax V-125A All Terrain Upright Carpet Washer
Price: £199.99

1.0 out of 5 stars For fans of the Krypton factor or Ikea only, 18 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needs built, instructions unclear and difficult to discern what to do with the parts. When I bought this I did not expect to have to assemble it from smaller parts that do not seem to fit together and feel cheaply made. Returned as it's infuriating to deal with and absolutely massive and heavy, I have no idea how this is considered a home appliance due to its weight, especially if full of water - quite laughable that it even has a sticker saying 'dont return this call us if you have trouble figuring it out' .. hey Vax, just make stuff that's already built before you sell it to people please and write a manual that's more intuitive. I never had to build my own vaccum cleaner or any other electrical appliance before and if I want flat pack I'll shop in Ikea!

An excellent little book. Great for students starting out and rarely for a textbook it's a page turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential and timely contribution from over 20 leading experts, 13 Mar. 2015
I'm not sure there is any expert on Ukraine-Russia that is not included as a contributor in this Edited Collection. All in all, a great read, and and an essential one at that, for students and academics interested in the Ukraine-Russia crisis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, 2 Dec. 2010
This is my pick of 2010. It's a joyous album that is a pleasure to listen to

It's not going to change the world, but it will get inside your head and make your day that bit chirpier.

Fyfe is a complex and multi-layered talented individual, and it's great to see him doing well on his own, as well as with the guillemots (even if this album only registered popularly after the John Lewis advert)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff, 6 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Fly Yellow Moon (Audio CD)
I am disappointed, but not surprised, that this album did not bother the charts. Fyfe is one of the most precious talents of the modern era.
A great little album that very quietly grabs hold of you and makes your life feel better for having listened to it.

some songs are instant, others are growers. None are fillers.

5.0 out of 5 stars for fans only, 18 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Zappa Plays Zappa Live [DVD] (DVD)
this is an incredible show...well recorded and presented. If they tour the UK i'm there. It is not for the curious though, its definitely a fans only affair, as is much of Zappa's work.

The musicianship is superb, the humour intact and the vibe incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first MMJ album, 26 July 2008
This review is from: The Tennessee Fire (Audio CD)
loved it from the moment i heard it. the low fi sound quality took me back to the days when i was in various bands myself. Its not a barrier to enjoying the songs, but it has to be said that people expecting a well produced album wont get it. The drums are recorded with one microphone by the sounds of things, although the vocal and guitars fare better sound wise.

MMJ are a great modern rock band, but this shows their roots better than any other of their albums. its not their best album, but its an essential purchase. Its got that bedroom demo feeling, back in a pre- mass-internet time where people actually recorded their demo's on tape.

for fans only.. perhaps... though it did make me a fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars plant's best solo album, 24 July 2008
This review is from: Dreamland (Audio CD)
There is a great feel to this album. The tracks slither and glide around your sound system and grow on you over time. In the 5 years's I've had this album it has grown on me like a fine wine.

There are two weak tracks, but don't all albums have those?

The band Plant assembled here (and reprised more or less for Mighty Rearranger) are the best live band I have ever seen... sadly they arent currently touring as Plant is on the road with Alison Krauss.

If they are to record together no more, this album will stand as the zenith of what they achieved - if you like Plant/zep or the general vibe of the 1960's west coast american blues movement you need this album! Its a underrated classic, and tracking back the original artists introduced me to some music I had not heard before - chiefly Tim Buckley and Skip Spence.

Morning Dew is the best thing Plant has ever recorded as a solo artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars great, 19 Jun. 2008
bought these from pixmania for £105 .... not cheap for a 2.1 set, but I had been told these were good. delivery was fast enough.

and as for the quality.. im speechless. The subwoofer is huge sure, probably akin to a medium pc tower in height and a little wider - but when it sounds so perfect who cares. I just put mine under a large table out of sight. As for the satellite's, they are amazing speakers on their own, the sound is deep, rich and clear.

With the bass and treble set to about 65% on the table top volume controller the sound is mesmerising.

I am a musician so i'm very critical of speakers, and i can honestly not recommend a better 2.1 speaker set for any pc than these. Spend the money. you won't be disappointed. The only small gripe i have is the weakness of the remote control signal - you really do have to point it right at the receiver to get it to work.

1.0 out of 5 stars utterly awful and completely useless, 17 Jan. 2008
not only were all, yes ALL, my burn attempts coasters, but the discs themselves were plagued with marks and imperfections - which there is no excuse for. Even burning at lower speeds that the 16x capacity produces error filled burns.

Imation or verbatim i've bought in the past, and will buy from them from now on as these cheaper ones are a waste of time.

I have returned them to amazon as defective.
