5.0 out of 5 stars Very good clippers capable of doing a professional job, though great care is still needed, 7 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good clippers, strongly made and easy to use. They have a guard to help prevent too much claw being clipped off and it bleeding. The seller gives top service and helpfully provided an advisory leaflet. Even so, early on I did slightly overclip one claw. Luckily my dog wasn't too bothered but I was glad I had some Styptic powder (Nail-Safe) ready to more quickly stop the bleeding. Dogs probably vary but I found mine demanded a small treat every couple of claws if he was to keep still and put up with what i was doing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good-looking and well made indoor slip-ons, 3 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These look good and appear to be well made from good quality materials. They are made of very dark matt brown leather with a neat slightly more red brown nylon trim. Time will tell as to whether they last. They are comfortable and lightweight with flat dense foam type soles. They are unsuitable I would say for much, if any, outdoor use.

WRISTWATCHES: A CONNOISSEUR'S GUIDE.

Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Attractive and informative book covering pre 2000 wristwatches., 23 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
160 pages of mostly interesting text with a good choice of illustrations. From page 34, it consists of 2 -3 page sections on each of dozens of makers, including the rarer ones and from the most to the least expensive. The sections cover their history, innovations and flagship models. I bought this much reduced and 'used - as new'. It was published in 2000 so a bit historical rather than bang up to date and worth more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for certain uses, 18 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very lightweight indeed, very comfortable and cool, and springy. They are pull on and off with toggled elasticated ties if you want to tighten them. The toggles don't grip very well but I found I did not need them to. I wanted these to use a couple of times a week on a running machine and they are ideal for that. They would also be great for beach use. The soles are made of quite a spongy lightweight rubber, so whether they would last well if worn more as normal shoes I do not know.

4.0 out of 5 stars More comfortable and practical than PJ's, 3 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lightweight cool poly-cotton. Enticingly see-through against the light ?? Very comfortable and non-constrictive if you deliberately get a larger size. One star off for poorly finished buttonholes but otherwise fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good choice of this type of case, 3 July 2017

Excellent fit for the 2017 9.7 ipad. Nicely finished and I like the leather-like texture. Good blend of little additional weight/bulk for protection given. Pleased with this choice from all the cases available.

2.0 out of 5 stars Its predecessor was terrible. Who knows whether this replacement will prove to be any better?, 3 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a replacement for a bigger triangular AL3640CV charger which came with a Bosch lawnmower still currently sold. That charger lasted for about 20 uses before suddenly just packing in. I then found that they are not repairable and that they regularly quickly fail. Sellers wanted over £100 for an identical replacement charger. Fortunately I found that this unit was meant, I think among other things, to replace it . Even at a rather less eye-watering £42, it is still expensive for a mere charger and still exploiting customers who without it have £400 + of quite new but completely useless lawnmower.
I hope the 3620 lasts a lot longer than the 3640. It is half the size and doesn't appear to have the internal cooling fan. It worked fine the only time I have so far used it. It may turn out to be worth 5 stars but only if it lasts for years as it should. Given Bosch's track record with its predecessor though, together with its quite high price, I can give it no more than two.

1.0 out of 5 stars These chargers fail too soon and buyers should beware buying tools dependent on them, 24 Jun. 2017
Why on earth are people giving 5 stars to very expensive replacements for chargers they say have failed in just 2 or 3 years ? Just because they work out of the box ? it is disgraceful that Bosch have sold battery operated tools that depend on unrepairable chargers costing over £100 that regularly fail in 2-3 years, just as mine has after about 20 uses. They could easily have been made to last. Rate any replacement of something that fails much too quickly on the assumption that the new one won't last any longer. That way you will properly advise others and make manufacturers like Bosch take more care.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very adjustable to the user's needs and great if it also lasts well., 2 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I agree with all the others who rate this light so highly. It gives all of the easily controlled range of brightness and even types of light that can make it ideal for the bedside or desk. It also holds its positional adjustment well. It's all-plastic construction is attractive if a bit lightweight. OK though if it proves to last The other unknown factor is how long the presumably irreplaceable LED's will last. So it is like many modern products, attractive and with advanced technology offering more than ever before, but also needing to last well to be worthwhile.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable slip-ons but unlikely to last for very long, 2 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the soles appeared at first to consist of solid rubber, a few weeks wear showed that they are made of a lightweight hollow honeycomb structure which is already sagging and wearing through under my 12 stone. The uppers and heel top area are made of soft matt textured vinyl type material. which still looks fine. The style is comfortable and without any low back which usually just gets trodden down. With more lasting soles, I would have given these 5 stars. In smaller sizes or with a lightweight user, they might last better.
