5.0 out of 5 stars Should do the job without breaking the bank, 20 July 2015
Been wanting to make some cinder toffee for a while now but most recipes recommend a sugar thermometer to get the temperature right. Looked around on Amazon and found this digital one which I thought might be easier to read and clean than a traditional analogue thermometer. Item arrived in a protective plastic tube which can be used for storage. The thermometer probe itself has a separate cover for additional protection. The display was a reasonable size with the temperature clearly visible without having to squint. The buttons are small but not difficult to use. I gave it a quick test by putting it into the steam generated at the spout of my kettle. It seemed to respond quite quickly to the rising temperature, settling just above 100'C, so seems pretty accurate to me.

All in all it seems like a descent device and cheap too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the size I needed, 17 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of my under cabinet strip light tubes failed recently. I rather naively assumed that a T4 16W tube was a standard defined length, not so. Tried to buy replacements from where I got the strip lights originally only to find the tubes they had were some 7mm too long.

Finally found these tube with the quoted size matching the tube I had already (to within 1mm but that could have been my tape). Arrived quickly, well packed, and worked perfectly. Not sure if the colour temperature was the same as the original but its not offensive and I can now see again so not bothered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid, smart looking toaster that does the job, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace an old four slot toaster I picked up from Aldi on which two of the slots would no longer toast. I picked the version with the black front and back panels, which against the brushed steel centre, section looks really smart. The black front and back (as someone else commented) are not dead black as it's coloured brushed steel, however it's quite black enough for my liking.

The toaster comes with the usual features, browning control, cancel, reheat and frozen settings. The slots are nice and wide to accommodate bread or muffins, etc. and long enough to fit a standard sized bread slice either landscape or portrait. In use it seems quite quick, a lot faster than the old one, and browns fairly evenly, probably better than any other toaster I have had, though none brown as evenly as a grill. If you only toast a single slice it does recommend you turn the browning setting down as it does come out browner in this situation. Removing the toasted slices is easy with the list feature, though this may not be necessary if you only toast a single slice as it has on more than one occasion ejected the slice clean out of the toaster onto the work surface ;-) Just need to put the plate in the right position to catch it.

We have used it for several weeks now and have been very impressed with its performance. I would recommend this model based on my experiences so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars After sharpening the blade it was like a new chainsaw, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to sharpen the thoroughly neglected chain on my old Stihl saw. Once I got the hang of it it did a cracking job on sharpening the blade and it did not take too long. After I had finished it was like using a new chainsaw, virtually no pressure required to cut through the wood compared to before. It just breezed its way through like a hot chainsaw blade through butter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent non-toxic product that really works, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SB Plant Invigorator 500ml
This is the second bottle of this I have bought now. I got the smaller one last year to treat spider mite which was killing my greenhouse strawberry plants. Had the same problem again this year so bought the bigger bottle this time as I know it works really well.

The product is easy to mix and economical being a concentrate, though refilling a pressure sprayer can be a little difficult because it does foam quite a bit.

The product contains no nasty chemicals and can be applied to both ornamental and edible crops with no delay between spraying and harvesting. The product works by contact rather than systemic action, so you do need to completely saturate both upper and lower leaf surfaces to catch all the pests you are trying to kill. From experience it works great on spider mite and greenfly, though with spider mite you do need to spray repeatedly over a few weeks to catch any newly ones. This is the only down side if one exists, but then again this is the compromise you pay for a non-toxic product that has no nasty residues and does not linger in the plants system. It also gives the plant a foliar feed so they green up and recover nicely from the pest attack.

Brilliant stuff, thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Had issues with this version but alternative worked great, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted to add some USB 3.0 ports to my ageing Dell Dimension 9200. Picked this one so I had an option of some internal ports as well as external ports. Unfortunately when I fitted it I had various issues with my ATI PCIe graphics card display going blank when the card was fitted, though the computer booted fine. Tried both the free x1 and x4 slots in my machine, in the x4 slot the display sometimes appeared but on a power cycle it went blank again. Tried the same card in another Dell model without any issues at all.

Contacted CSL customer service who were excellent and suggested various things I could try to debug the issue. In the end they sent me a replacement card (option C - CSL USB 3.0 PCI express (PCIe) controller | 2 x external (ports) / 1 x internal (controller/header)) with the NEC / Renesas chip set as it looked like there was an incompatibility between my motherboard and the VIA chip set on the original.

This is the only reason I've deducted a star for this card, I would give 5 stars for the replacement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job perfectly, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needed to replace a 4 port USB 2 hub which was overheating badly. This is a neat little hub with the advantage that the ports are on short flexible leads so easily accommodate wide USB devices. Worked straight off on my computer and also on my networked USB hub. No problems so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, albeit not 100% thorn proof, but then none are, 15 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted to get some thorn proof gloves for ripping out a bramble/hawthorn hedge. Picked these as they had positive reviews. When they arrived I very impressed with the overall quality. Nicely finished and seemed to be fairly thick but still flexible.

In use they are virtually thorn proof, though some of the sharpest bramble or hawthorns thorns did get through on occasions. That said I don't think anything short of solid metal would stop all thorns. The long cuffs proved very effective at protecting wrists and lower arms from nettles or surrounding thorns.

From my experience with some cheaper gardening gloves bought many years ago, the longer you use these sorts of gloves the better they get. As the fabric gets exposed to general garden dirt and wet it tends to harden up to the point they are pretty much 100% proof, but then they do tend to go a bit stiff which is the only down side.

Definitely worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a working fan, 3 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Such a relief, now the fan works at all speeds rather than just the ridiculously noisy tornado setting.

Just amazed how primitive the speed control is, just a set of resistive coils kept cool by being in the vent air passing over them. But then again this is for my old Rover 25.
