5.0 out of 5 stars Medium for 38" chest fits snug and right, 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a 38" and all the advice to get a Medium was correct. Fits snugly and when it was zero deg last week I felt a lot warmer than a prevous Helly Hansen top that it thinner. Thoroughly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good match for a 28W Halogen - warmer tone though, 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used to replace a halogen 28W bulb for a fitting which required "pretty" looking bulbs - hence the LEDs that have plastic surrounds wouldn't do.
Comparing to the other 2 halogen bulbs the brightness is the same.The only difference I can notice (and likely because they're mixed) it is slightly warmer (i.e. more yellow) than the halogens.I've attached a picture (the new LED is on the right hand side, the other two are halogens)
That's ok for where it is (a hallway) but I suspect for a kitchen it wouldn't look as good as a Halogen.
So I think I'll get another two since I'm hoping as per other LEDs I'll never need to replace them!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed Little Girl, 28 April 2015
My daughter got this for Christmas and was very excited but has been disappointed every time she has used it. The paint doesn't stay on the nails, it flakes off before they are even dry, never mind trying to stick them on her fingers. Would not recommend it to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but doesn't work for Talktalk Youview Huawei DN370T, 1 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice controller but unfortunately didn't work with my Youview box (Talktalk Huawei DN370T) with direct codes. When I copied the existing controller signals, key buttons such as the guide and Youview box weren't recognised.

I raised a support call with OFA and they confirmed it's not compatible. They suggested URC 6430, URC 6440 or URC 7781.

I chose URC 6440, programmed the functions manually again via the IR copy feature and now they all work. That's a good controller too - not quite as good looking as URC 7140 but can control my TV, Amp, HTPC and Youview box.

5.0 out of 5 stars No problem here, 23 Nov. 2010
Fitted with the minimum of hassle - most screws/bolts etc. provided and used my own for securing onto a cavity wall.

Fitting allows a certain amount of horizontal movement (the 2 vertical bars attach to the TV and are placed), with the weight of the TV plus some screws securing it in place.

Fitted with the LED LCD 32", so pretty flush to the wall and no complaints here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Informative but not very engaging, 22 Dec. 2005
I found this book to be quite interesting in some places, but too many times the author went through a protracted argument about why certain explanations of words are wrong. To add insult to injury, he would then admit he didn't really know where the meaning actual came from. I will keep it as a reference (like many other reviewers here) but wouldn't recommend it for an entertaining read
