HoMedics SP-6H-GB Multi-Purpose Shiatsu Massage Pillow
HoMedics SP-6H-GB Multi-Purpose Shiatsu Massage Pillow
Price: £59.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice massager for decent price, 21 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
HoMedics have been in the home massage business for awhile now, so have a good sense of what people want and the right elements to place in a product. Have had their full chair back massager for quite awhile now, and that's very effective.

This uses similar technology to that with the multiple shiatsu massage heads rotating combined with heat (if desired), to provide a deep, kneading sensation much like a real massage. Not as uncomfortable as a real deep tissue massage, but if you've never had one before at all, this will be a little disconcerting/uncomfortable to begin with. Once you get used to it though, it's lovely, and will leave you feeling much looser and more relaxed once it's finished, whichever part of the body you've had it working on.

The other big upside for this one is it's more portable, and doesn't have to be fixed to a chair, so make it a better option for a quick massage in a busy life!


Oxford Black n' Red A5 Matt Black Wirebound Hardback Notebook, Ruled and Perforated 140 Pages
Oxford Black n' Red A5 Matt Black Wirebound Hardback Notebook, Ruled and Perforated 140 Pages
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars No.1 for a reason, 21 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Black n' Red notebooks are the no.1 business choice for good reason. High quality paper, durable, excellent hard and back coverings, and very solid bindings. Plus the perforations for tearing out pages are well set, so you don't have half-tears as with other cheaper notepads.

They haven't changed for a long time because there is no need to. They look stylish, professional and do the job with consummate ease.


Science in Sport Go Caffeine Shot, 12-pack 60 ml, Tropical
Science in Sport Go Caffeine Shot, 12-pack 60 ml, Tropical
Price: £20.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Packs a punch!, 21 Aug. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There's always doubts around products like these, as to how much they actually do, but these really do what they say. It is a pure shot of caffeine, and the recommendation to not do activity for 30mins after taking is spot on. The reality is after 15mins without doing anything, you can feel it working through your system and supercharging it, so it would actually be dangerous to exercise during this time as your heart rate would be spiking.

If you do follow the instructions though, they're great. Give a good continuous flow of energy all the way through a workout.

The tropical flavour is nice, although very sharp, so be ready for the hit.

Angelcare AC510 Digital Video and Sound 5-inch Touch Screen Baby Monitor
Angelcare AC510 Digital Video and Sound 5-inch Touch Screen Baby Monitor
Price: £190.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb piece of kit, 26 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Using this monitor can give you piece of mind as a parent/carer, allowing you to watch and listen to your baby and also monitor temperature in the room.
Setting up the camera and display unit is really simple and the unit comes with two fixings (wall mount and table top) for the camera unit that should work in the majority room layouts.
Using the monitor is simple, however there is a slight static noise from the display unit, which may have been a result of the location of the camera unit next to other electrical devices.
There is a good quality image both during the day and also in low light / dark. The touchscreen can sometimes be a bit delayed when changing settings but once we had set up this was not an issue.
The ability to see and track temperature was useful given the hot weather we had experienced, although the temperature display on the camera unit was a bit bright and is directed at the baby which could be distracting.

Overall this is a well-made baby monitor that is easy to use and set up is a breeze.
I would recommend this product to those looking to have video monitoring capability and those interested in monitoring temperature where the baby is sleeping.
PROS
Great range between camera and monitor/display unit
Good quality image both day and night (low light)
Useful to see temperature – also data tracking feature
Good sound quality
Easy to set up
Good battery life

CONS
Slight static noise comes from the monitor/display unit
LCD Touchscreen can be slow/delayed
Temperature display can be a bit bright​
None of these however, would be enough to prevent it from receiving a five star rating.


Design Toscano "Shenzhan Buddha Garden" Statue - Grey

Price: £170.54

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely addition to any garden, 24 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Another lovely Toscano piece.
I've decided to put this in a sheltered area because the statue is Very tall, and quite light, its resin not stone.
A gust of window could blow it over if it were in a open location.
very well made and attractive , would look good in any location indoors or outdoors

Onkyo H500BTB wireless On-Ear Headphones with Mic (Bluetooth, Remote) - Black
Price: £169.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and nasty , at ridiculous price, 20 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
You know when you unwrap the delivery and the packaging is cheaper than a pound shop you are
Not going to be reviewing a top class item.
The "manual is a single double sided piece of A5 , no instructions just pictures.
The headphones are on the track ear, not at all comfortable, and the manufacturer quality is poor.
The sound however is very good.
If the all round manufacture were to be improved, it would get another star and if the price was halved 4 stars.
As it is now 2 stars at the selling price the rating is generous

Toscano are always excellent.

They even have a Zombie gnome, which I will be buying for my son for his birthday next month

3.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to love it...but it's just good, not great., 17 Jun. 2017
This review is from: The Surge (PS4) (Video Game)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Some will say it's unfair to compare games to the Souls series, but my view is if I'm paying the same price for the experience, I'm rating it based on what I consider a 5-star gaming experience. Barring Dark Souls 2 which missed the mark a little IMO, the other two games are some of the finest gaming experiences out there. They're flawed to be sure (I still think the story is nonsense in the entire series), but as a game to play, they're a joy.

Sorry, way off topic there, but I wanted to preface my review with why The Surge isn't great. Played in isolation away from all other games, it's decent. Fun combat mechanics with some unique ideas, a not overly complicated crafting and upgrade system, a sci-fi theme, and not overly loaded with random rubbish or sub-missions you can choose to get "if you want" (yes, stop playing to the OCD gamer in all of us, it's a waste of time, make the main game better! Yes, I'm looking at you Ubisoft).

But here's what wrong;
1) The story, I'm not sure there is one. We establish we're a guy in a wheelchair who is going to get a procedure to get his movement back. Albeit how having a metal exosuit bolted to you is the same thing, I don't know, but I digress. This goes wrong, you wake up being scrapped and the game begins. If after an hour of not knowing what's happening and then being give some exposition, that's ok...but 10 hours in, having killed 2 bosses, and in to the 3rd part of the facility, I'm still none the wiser!! The protagonist just seems perfectly happy wandering around massacring crazed other versions of himself, and killer robots. Bonkers.
2) The levels are a frankly a bit dull. Credit in that they still build in the little shortcuts back to the central core of each level so you can get to other places quicker, but it's all a bit samey. Corridor, tunnel, room with stuff to grab & things to kill in, rinse, repeat. Doesn't feel like it has the required invention of a modern £45 game for me.
3) The combat feels imbalanced. As someone who has played the Souls series, I have no problem with something being hard and a real challenge of skill, being willing to die, come back, and do it all again. The Surge has balance issues though, you can feel quite with it one second, and then the level of damage inflicted by your enemies is just too high when you're limited in terms of options to get health back. The 3-legged security robots are just crazy. They are like the Black Knights of The Surge, except they respawn!!! They're a nightmare to kill, can do moves which knock out 90% your health in one shot, and if you accidentally pull 2, you may as well stand there waiting to die. Dark Souls was maddeningly frustrating, but you always felt you could just get that bit further. This feels just sadistic in parts.

So in summary, it's fun but it's flawed. Give it a whirl and see what you think, but for me it definitely goes into the category of games that when (and if) I finish, would I play again? Not a chance.


Prorelax Vacuum Massage Instrument
Prorelax Vacuum Massage Instrument
Price: £56.03

3.0 out of 5 stars The machine is easy to use with clear and easy to follow instructions, 16 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The machine is easy to use with clear and easy to follow instructions.Inside the outer cardboard box is a zip-up carry case which holds all the parts of the ProRelax vacuum massager. It is not painful to use. You can adjust the length of suction time and strength of suction to suit your skin type. As to the effects, it's still early days for me as I have never used a product like this before!
