AmazonBasics Microfibre Fitted Sheet, Double - Olive
AmazonBasics Microfibre Fitted Sheet, Double - Olive
Price: £8.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Feels good to sleep on, 6 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Here's an updated review, as I now have two of these sheets but whilst they are a different colour / pattern, this page only allows one review. I have an olive coloured sheet and a gingham plaid pattern sheet. They are both very smooth and comfortable fitted sheets. The stitching is good and I could not see any imperfections to tell you about. I wasn't sure about the olive colour at first but it grew on me, and the gingham plaid pattern is perfect. There are, of course, other patterns and colours in this range.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has no fastener at the top, so don't hold it upside down by mistake, 6 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is described as being a twin ID file, and what that means is that it is a sturdy see-through folder, slightly bigger than A4 size, with partial pockets inside to store up to two documents (or small sets of documents), one in each pocket. I wouldn't say it's all that good for long term storage – there are better options – but it's good as a presentation folder. You get five in a pack. I like that it has a label / business card pocket on the front cover. However, I would prefer it if it had some way of fastening it shut at the top, as I am worried that if I picked it up upside down in a hurry my important papers could fall out onto the ground. I have been at meetings where people have had similar folders and I have seen it happen, as they're busy meeting and greeting new people, they tuck their file under their arm and every so often someone will lose the contents, sometimes without even noticing.


Logitech B100 Optical USB Ambidextrous Mouse for Windows, Mac and Linux - Black
Logitech B100 Optical USB Ambidextrous Mouse for Windows, Mac and Linux - Black
Price: £5.96

5.0 out of 5 stars Logitech B100 optical mouse, 4 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice simple basic mouse. It glides well, the buttons are integrated into the case and they click with a nice solid sound, and the scroll wheel is well balanced. Stretch your arms out to your sides as far as they will go. That's how long the lead is.


Funtime BV5890 Crystal Duck Puzzle
Funtime BV5890 Crystal Duck Puzzle
Offered by Genie Gadgets
Price: £7.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye catching with the light on it, 4 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fun crystal puzzle to work out and put together, not too hard but not too easy either. The eyes are stickers and you get three variations of these eyes to choose from. They do not cross over more than one piece, so you can stick them on and still dismantle the puzzle for next time. The yellow (and orange of the beak) pick up and reflect light very well, making the finished "rubber" duck stand out quite a bit.


Rapesco R3 Staple Remover - Metal Construction - Black
Rapesco R3 Staple Remover - Metal Construction - Black
Price: £12.08

5.0 out of 5 stars For every task there is a tool, 4 Sept. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been using a Rapesco staple tacker recently, and although I have a staple remover for staples which have been put through paper and get curved in on themselves, I did not have anything to remove staples which stay in their "goalpost" shape when stuck into wood, display board or cardboard, other than a penknife, which isn't all that advisable from a safety point of view. This is a fairly big tool, but it fits in the hand, is good to grip and the size seems about right. It's a tool for a specific job and it does it well. I bet I could take out hundreds of staples in no time at all with this, and with practically no effort. If you care about where the staples end up when removed, you can press down on the metal piece at the front with your thumb and you'll keep it on the tool ready to be carried to and dropped in the bin. If you do a lot of temporary staple tacking or open a lot of stapled cardboard boxes in the average week then this very useful tool will take all the hassle out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Xbox One headphones I've ever had, 28 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There are three USB ports on an Xbox One, and it's unlikely most people will be using all of them. These headphones come paired to a USB transmitter and it literally is as simple as plug and play. The sound coming from the Xbox One and through the headphones really is excellent. In my opinion, whilst there are a number of equaliser settings, the natural sound option is the clearest and best, but there are bass boost, bass & treble boot and vocal boost options too if you want them. I found that the "superhuman hearing" feature distorted a lot of sounds within games (and also when the game has music in it), but it can be switched off. There are situations in games, where all else is very quiet, where it makes sense to use, though I may find myself being very selective in that respect.

The buttons and dials on the headphones are excellent. Having a volume dial on one of the headphone cups is ideal as it means you never need to go into the Xbox options menu when the sound balance of one game is louder or quieter than the previous one. The microphone has its oen on/off button and a dial too, but when the USB is swapped from Xbox One to PC that dial does strange things. When listening to music, both dials affect the volume. That's a bit confusing. It's not the only change though. When the USB transmitter is plugged into the Xbox the LED light on it stays on all the time. When in the PC it goes off. I don't know why these are the case. It may be that these headphones should only be used with the Xbox One and not the PC? But I can't find anywhere on the box or instructions where it might say that.

The headphones themselves are exceptionally comfortable. Their colour scheme is standard Xbox green, and this extends to the constant green glow from the illumined logos on the cups. Actually, this can be a problem when playing games with dark colour palates, such as stealth games. You can't switch it off, and it reflects on the screen providing a very real distraction.

In terms of style, sound quality and easy of use with the Xbox One, these headphones are nearly perfect. The green glow reflecting on the screen in darker games played in the dark can be a distraction but not enough for me to mark it down in terms of a very deserved five star score. These are the best headphones I have ever had for my Xbox One, and even without all the equaliser settings, it's the best sound my games have ever had.


Silentnight Pocket Sprung Pillow
Silentnight Pocket Sprung Pillow
Price: £24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfy, 28 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This pillow arrived in its own reusable carry case. It's a medium firmness pillow, firm but soft and hard to stay awake on. There really is nothing like a new pillow to sleep soundly. It has individual pocket springs and is guaranteed for two years, so Silentnight must be pretty certain it'll last. The cover is 100% cotton and the filling made from polyester hollowfibre. It's also hypoallergenic.


Rapesco Popper Wallet - A3. Assorted Transparent Pastel Colours. Pack of 5
Rapesco Popper Wallet - A3. Assorted Transparent Pastel Colours. Pack of 5
Price: £7.67

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, I definitely recommend them, 26 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Useful for work, school, college or home these plastic popper wallets are an easy – and colourful – way to store printouts, artwork and other items which just don't fit in an A4 holder. They're resilient too. I already had some of the A4 variety and they've had a lot of use in a short space of time because they are well made and easy to take with you. This pack of 5 has one clear one, one green tinted, one yellow tinted, one pink tinted and one blue tinted folder. The sticky manufacturer's labels came off easily and left no residue, which is always a good sign. The poppers themselves close shut with a nice solid click. I don't think I'll need any more of this size in the near future, but if I do need any more I will definitely buy exactly the same product.


Salter 9000 WH3R White Electronic Scale
Salter 9000 WH3R White Electronic Scale
Price: £18.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes weighing yourself as quick and simple as possible, 21 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Digital is certainly better than analogue when it comes to weighing scales. Using the old analogue one we had, which I presume had a spring in it, we had to bend down to scrutinise the dial and it never stayed still to read when we did. This scale has a nice clean, big LCD display and weighing yourself is literally a five second job. It can be set to kg, st or lb weight using a position switch located underneath the unit. This is great because set it once and you're done; there's no need to set the measurement each time you use it.

Also, it goes into sleep mode automatically a few seconds after you've stepped away and is activated simply by giving it a sharp tap in the centre with your foot before you step on. There's no need to bend down at all. If you do want to pick it up though, there is a handle at the top raised a little bit off the floor and easy to get hold of.

There can be times when you make little excuses in your head not to weigh yourself, but this is so simple to use that you'll probably be stuck for excuses and therefore more likely to use it and keep using it.


Rapesco Galvanised Staples 13/6 mm - Box of 5,000
Rapesco Galvanised Staples 13/6 mm - Box of 5,000
Price: £3.75

5.0 out of 5 stars Up to the task, 20 Aug. 2016
These staples fit into my Rapesco Z T-Pro staple tacker, which I recently tested and reviewed under the Amazon Vine programme. They are very good quality and are up to any task I can think to put them to. Amongst other uses, I used them with the tacker on the densest piece of off-cut wood I could find and the staples went in perfectly. There are 5000 of these staples in the box.
