5.0 out of 5 stars Very good steps., 29 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really good, robust set of steps, ideal for kitchen use.

They are for my mother who says that she feels more confident using these steps than other plastic steps, and she finds the metal ones too heavy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very pleased, 23 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very, very pleased with this. It was a bit of a punt, because it seemed to be too cheap to be a quality pan, but it heats up quickly, works well on a low heat, is very non-stick and cleans easily. It isn't heavy, presumably because of the ceramic lining. The lid stops an awful lot of splashes and splatters.

For the price i think that it is pretty much unbeatable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Microsoft, 30 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my son and he feels that it is better than the Microsoft equivalent. It goes nicely with his XBox One S.

It's just a question of trying to pry it from his hands occasionally for less important things like eating and sleeping!

4.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressed with vendor, 21 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: IOLO System Mechanic (PC) (CD-ROM)
What you actually get for your money is System Mechanic 14, that you can update to version 15.5 on the Web, but not to version 16 seemingly.

On the basis that I bought this in good faith with "New Version" written on the box, I had expected it to be the new version now, not the new version several years ago.

I suspect that there are better and probably cheaper ways to buy this program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty easy, pretty good, 6 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like these. They are pretty straightforward to put up and look pretty good when they are up.

I'm not sure that they would carry a lot of weight, but there again they aren't actually that big, so you won't have room to put three greatcoats and a rucksack on them. For dressing gowns, towels, aprons etc they are great.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for cold hands, 6 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst this has all the signs of being a useful mouse, my son has hot, sticky hands which caused the glue holding the side rubbers to melt, making the mouse even stickier than his hands.

So unless you want to wear gloves when you play on your computer, I'd give this one a swerve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brownie points from the wife., 6 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife is very impressed with this. In the past finding her keys in her handbag was always a challenge, taking up a fair bit of time, although that could possibly be reduced by having a torch and a rope handy.

Now however she just gives it a pull and the keys are in her hand. What could be simpler? It's not long enough to stretch from her handbag to the ignition, but that's possibly just as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and makes me cheerful, 6 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a very cheap mouse this is actually pretty good. I use it with my work laptop and it does all I want it to, and by folding it up it switches off and saves the battery. It's comfortable to use and the scroll wheel works fine for me.

The first one I got had actually been damaged in transit, but a note to Amazon and a replacement arrived in a few days.

Obviously if you're a draughtsman or serious gamer this probably isn't the mouse for you, but then you probably realised that anyway from the price. But give it a go; if you really don't get on with it then you haven't spent a huge amount on a big mistake, but if you like it then you've done well.


Eurosonic Travel Adaptor Plug:UK version

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for 2-pin US plugs, 6 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a new printer that has a 2-pin plug on it (thanks HP!), and whilst it can be persuaded to fit a 3-pin UK wall socket, I wanted to be a little more responsible. It clearly wouldn't fit a shaver socket, so I crossed my fingers and bought this adaptor, and it worked a treat.

There do seem to be different pictures of this adaptor, but the one I had was almost round with three round holes on the face to accept different plug formats. I can't tell you which ones it does and doesn't work with, but it certainly works with 2-pin US plugs, and it doesn't require any messing around with screwdrivers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a very good A5 diary, 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these for 2014, so this year I went straight to find the 2015 edition.

This is just a very nice diary. The week-to-view A% setting is ideal for what I wanted, it feels soft and comfortable and it raises money for the British Heart Foundation.

It comes in whatever colour you like as long as you like red, and is robust enough to bounce around in my briefcase for a year without looking any the worse for wear.

I'll be looking for a 2016 version when the time comes.
