5.0 out of 5 stars Superb value, 6 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent quality shirt for the price but please be aware that the sizes run quite small. With a 44" chest and 34" waist the XL is quite fitted and is snug over the old guns. If they did an XXL I'd probably go for that instead. The material is 65% polyester/ 35% cotton blend and washes really well without fading. It has no pockets and is perfectly tailored for the 'v-shaped' torso and looks the business as a work shirt.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose, 21 May 2015

Despite claiming to fit the Lenovo A10 this screen protector is like a bad porn movie it doesn't fit the entire width of the screen and the hole is in the wrong place. Rubbish

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded my expectations, 20 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a hard case like the otterbox, but unfortunately they don't make them for this model so I opted for this case instead. To be honest I wasn't expecting much at this price but I have to say that it's excellent and looks like a case of twice the price. It fits the device perfectly with a hard plastic bezel and back that allows access to all the buttons and camera without hindrance. The flap front acts to wake and sleep the device as stated in the ad and the screen positionable as per the pictures. The bonus stylus is a nice touch but to be honest I'd prefer a film screen protector instead, as like your local proctologist I prefer to use my finger......;o)

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favourite coffee!, 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I took a bit of a gamble and bought this as a warehouse deal, which thankfully has not disappointed. A medium bodied shot with citrus and chocolate overtones and a lingering finish, it's the perfect start, finish and anytime in between, to the day. The grind is spot on for my ascaso machine which produces a deliciously smooth crema every time. I thought the 908g would last an age but we liked it so much it went faster than a fart through hessian pants. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 26 Mar. 2015
The best quality and highest security rating of any euro cylinder lock on the market, bar none. The keys come with a coded card that will only allow replacements to be made with the security number and the added advantage of having keyed-alike locks throughout the house means one key fits all and makes life so much easier. I have the chrome version and so far the coating has stood up to two winters without pitting and the lock action is smoother than Barry White's Galaxy bar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fit the Volvo XC90, 25 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent quality and competitively priced shocks that fit the Volvo XC90 model year 07 onwards.
For some reason Amazon didn't bring these up on the reg plate car part checking system, but they definitely fit and are a cheaper option than the Sachs OEM. Ignore the generic Amazon picture as they are completely different to those shown above.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best I have tried, 12 Mar. 2015
If like me you are fed up of trying model/brand specific car mounts for your mobile phone which either:

1) end up being tossed in the bin because they don't work
2) end up in the man drawer/bin because you've upgraded your phone

then a universal mount is the only solution.

The trouble is finding one which works as it claims and thankfully the Montar fits the bill perfectly. It's solidly made from glossy black plastic and adjustable for all phones 5.5cm to 9cm in width via its spring loaded rubberised claw grip. The base is secured with a renewable sticky gel suction pad, that is activated by simply locking the integrated lever into the mount when sited on a solid surface. There is an accessory adhesive pad (made by 3M) with a plastic coated top to be used on porous surfaces where suction is unable to be achieved with the standard suction pad. This is a great idea as it enables you to mount it on top of mesh grilles as on the dashboard of a volvo XC90 and provides added versatility to the product over lesser mounts. As the claw grip is relatively narrow it also means that you can securely position your device in pretty much any position within it, to allow access to charging ports, volume buttons etc, which vary widely between brands. The claw is fully adjustable through 360degrees via a ball and socket hinge, which is locked in position by a plastic nut.

Overall this product is sturdy, well-made and most importantly fully functional for its intended use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 12 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have found that using this as a spot treatment with a little water or as a pre-wash soak (one scoop 4litres water) is far more effective than just adding one scoop to the wash cycle as advised. It does improve whites but not as 'brilliant' as claimed on the tub or in the tv adverts and you should check for colour fastness of the fabric beforehand. Unfortunately it's not recommended for use on your sparkly white wool and silk lined leather trousers from the 70s, so you'll still have to use a specialist cleaning establishment for these relics of yesteryear.

1.0 out of 5 stars OCD cleaning nonsense, 12 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I can't say I've ever been troubled about the thought of bacteria on my clothes and it's hard to confirm the claim of this powder killing 99.9% of bacteria, without access to copious quantities of agar gel plates and a microbiology lab, so this claim will remain unchallenged for some time by most end -users. Aside from this there really isn't much to say about the product other than that it smells nice and is a great way to waste money.

1 scoop to 4litres of water and soak for five minutes prior to washing and hey presto you apparently have bacteria free clothes, which of course is nonsense as there are naturally occurring bacteria everywhere, unless of course your washing machine has a gamma irradiation wash cycle and you live in a hermetically sealed bubble. Sorry but this is just another example of mass market fnord profiteering, from the general misconception of hygiene and paranoia in relation to our microscopic companions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but still doesn't beat elbow grease for tough oil & protein stains, 27 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ok so they're not as good imho as Fairy's offerings but they do come a close second and its just a case of shopping around for offers as to who offers the best value. Currently the lemon sparkle 78 pack offer the best bang for your buck. The glasses come out nice and shiny and there's a pleasant residual odour left in the machine that doesn't linger on the glassware/china, like some of the cheaper brands. Things like baked on grease/oils/protein stains, on a ceramic dish or pan after roasting veg or meat are still resistant to the cleaning action, but this is true of all dishwasher tablets and the only thing I've found that shifts this is good old elbow grease.
