5.0 out of 5 stars In use it is simple to apply and use giving a smooth finish without hassle., 21 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice colour, understated.

In use it is simple to apply and use giving a smooth finish without hassle.

Nice big bottle too.

I am not sure I believe all the hype about health benefits - they are impossible to verify and no attempt has been made to do so, so don't buy on that account alone.

Usage - simple to apply, less of a pungent smell than traditional 'varnished table melting' versions and well presented in a simple no-nonsense bottle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very accurate mouse and comfortable to use too., 21 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Used to connect to my Samsung laptop, turning Bluetooth on the laptop, meant that the mouse was already detected and paired.
Just like that.

No more pesky dongle. which got caught on the bag zip and I can turn it off to save the flashing light syndrome whenever I open the bag to get something out.
Hopefully the batteries will last longer too.

Easy to hold in my big hands and also works for the ladies in the house.
Very accurate mouse and comfortable to use too.

Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, but with a design fault, 21 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Brilliant product.
My wife has tested this and it looks good.
One negative point is that the sponge at the the other end just falls out every time it is used.
That is a serious design fault and should be fixed before market release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, horribly overpriced, 21 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great idea
Given to my daughter who is female(!) and dieting, plus she finds she feels tired.

Will take a few days, weeks to see if it works, but its worth a try, especially as she is vegetarian too.

Bad points - horribly overpriced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not great and maybe be unsafe, but it does sharpen some things, 15 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Bizarre product, but it does work after a fashion.

The instructions inside the cardboard packaging are very poor, possibly leading to an accident as unclear how to use.

It is obvious to me that your pull the sharpener along the blade, not the blade through it as it may cut you when leaving the product.
However this can still happen as you use this product with the blade facing your stomach and inside wrists.

One slip and you may cut yourself.

Is this possible?
Well yes, the opposing blades do sharpen the knife after a fashion, but it leaves a nasty jagged edge on the knife. This cause the knife to stick and thus jerk. One pull too many and you have a wound.

Watching professional Chefs sharpen knives reveals a standard warning from them - Always sharpen knives AWAY from yourself!

the hand guard protects the holding hand - however mine is already scratched from blade contact as it leaves the sharpener!

I tried the tool sharpener on a trowel.
It simply does not make the slightest difference. The sharpening blade is 90 degrees to the trowel and just scrapes it.
This does nothing for sharpness whatsoever.

Why five stars and a cautionary review? Any less and the review gets hidden.
Not a safe product unless you are very careful - there are much better designed products out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light and ergonomically profiled to fit the hand, this is a very easy to use Clipper., 13 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Light and ergonomically profiled to fit the hand, this is a very easy to use Clipper.

The instructions are just pictures - the usual for Phillips. Too small and unclear.

However its a doddle to figure out what to assemble.
The main guard has longer 'legs' to engage with the adjustable depth guide.
The other Beard guides have shorter legs and are a fixed length. Not sure they have a use to be be honest, the main guide is enough.

The unit charges quickly, the LED is just 'lit' so you need to guesstimate the full charge by the clock!

The unit is quiet in use and light to use and hold.
I have not exhausted the batteries on my first trial; so cannot comment on subsequent times as my hair has got to grow again!
However as Rolls Royce say, it is adequate for the purpose.

Overall a good product, but I wish Phillips would spend some time on larger instructions instead of the wasteful pretty outer box and also provide a cheap storage pouch, so much neater to store it.

Should you buy one?
Yes

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat little device, 11 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Neat little device.
The main use I see this as being useful for is a quick and small grate, ie for a sandwich or as an extra add in item.
The clear back moulds to the hand and collects the shavings.

The standard grater shield will do cheese etc.
The Lind slicer will shave off slices of cucumber, carrot or similar vegetables and the round crown grater is useful for small nutmeg items.
Easy to disassemble and the spare graters store inside the main body.

Very useful

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality display folder, 3 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Big, strong and very well made.
These are very professional looking products and would be great for mobile presentations.
The last time I saw these, they were being used to show options for conservatory and the time before by a rep for a conceptual range of new medical products.

They seemed to survive being carted around from place to place and chucked in a car for transport.

I will use them to show pictures of our social community group 'Men in Sheds-Aylesbury' when we hold various market stalls and display at community events.

The fact that it's possible to carry a load of pig photos and posters around with ease is very enticing, plus it offers some protection against wind and showers.

As usual a high quality Rexel product.
