4.0 out of 5 stars It is well made with a good adjustable, metal, 16 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can one say about a cotton cap that cost less than a fiver. It is well made with a good adjustable, metal, concealed band and therefore fits any head, including mine which is a little on the small side.
I am a senior citizen, and therefore look a bit stupid in a baseball cap, but this looks right on me, and on a recent walking week in Noth Yorkshire kept the wind and cold at bay. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice lamp. I use it as a bedside lamp ..., 27 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice lamp. I use it as a bedside lamp with an old style 100 watt bulb which can be used on the lower setting when going to the loo in the night, and the higher setting which gives good enough light for reading. When the lamp blows, I will probably have to buy a dimmable 20 watt low enegy coil lamp.
It is well finished with a good quality stiff shade.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its OK., 27 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace a Breville Sandwich maker (12 years old) because all of the non-stick coating had worn away.
The Cucina does not seal the edges of the sandwiches as does the Breville, which is a bit of a downside, and because of this, the bread is a little dry, and if you are making any sandwich which includes cheese, you will find molten cheese running over the hot plates.
It does the job OK and will use.
Major dissapointment - It is not very well finished with sharp edges everywhere. You will need to get the fine emery paper out before you use!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not that good!!, 17 Jan. 2015
Bought to replace a Philips GO Gear 2gb.
Loaded a bunch of music and it seized completely after about half an hour of use. Could'nt even switch it off.
Went straight back to the supplier.
The screen is tiny, and the interface not very user friendly.
I think that this product has serious limitations!!

5.0 out of 5 stars At last !!, 10 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had a number of soundbars over the last 2 years trying to compete with a Sharp which has now been confined to the TV room upstairs.
I have had an LG NB2020 which is a very good soundbar for the money, but has no controls at all enabling the user to switch listening experiences from one type of programme to another.
I have had Philips which was absolute rubbish, no better than the TV speakers, and Panasonic that had so many different settings that is was going round in circles, finally dissapearing you know where, and none of the settings were the least bit listenable.
12 months ago I purchased my second LG NB2020 because this was the best of the bunch at the price, but because of the lack of adjustment, I thought one last chance to find a good soundbar at a competitive price.
I saw the Akai advertised without too many reviews, and thought they are a reputable company manufacturing only Audio/Visual products so it was worth a chance.
So pleased I did. This is super piece of kit, has a natural sound on all three settings, has Volume, Bass and Treble controls, and also has a "Learning" mode to allow you to programme your existing remotes to be compatable with the soundbar. It has a built-in FM radio which is, as one would expect, complete rubbish bearing in mind the price of the unit.
Over all this has been an excellent buy, so at current prices ( I paid £79.99 from Roys of Wroxham), get one.
Only one minor warning. Leave the unit in standby at all times, because if you switch it off, it takes 2-3 minutes to warm up, will not accept signals from the remote and you will assume the batteries are dead!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice !!, 10 Dec. 2014
Never heard of Rapoo before but after having a non too good experience with a Microsoft 800 combi (see my review), I decided, on the basis of other reviews to try this product.
I use a Keyboard and seperate Mouse in conjuction with a Laptop, to save use of the keys (very expensive to repair), and because I don't like the built in mouse on the Laptop.
This Rapoo is great. The actual measurements are 34cm x 11cm x 2cm, so it is a compact unit fitting neatly on the shelf under my desktop.
The keys are very quiet apart from the space bar, which makes extended typing pleasant, and it seem well built having an Aluminium base into which the keys sit.
The only downside is that the Mouse could have been a bit larger to be totally ergonomic.
For only £19.99 this represents good value.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing., 10 Dec. 2014
I have a Laptop and save on key use by using a separate keyboard. I also use a separate Mouse because it is easier to use than the built-in mouse on the Laptop.
This Microsoft combination did not solve the problem.
It is unnecessarily large, having a wide frame around the keys, has too small letters on the keys, and the scroll wheel is so sensitive that the hold down function operates all the time. Drives me mad!
Went back to the supplier after a few days for a refund.
I would have thought that Microsoft could do better than this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected., 18 Oct. 2014
This a very neat and well made unit, perfect for the job intended. The finish is good (even has screws to fix back panel on to the frame instead of the usual tiny nails), and is easy to assemble on one's own.
I note other comments that the front edges protrude over the CDs or DVDs at each end, but this can easily be overcome. The unit comes packaged in a very strong corrugated cardboard box, and if you use the box to cut pices the same size as either a CD or DVD box, glue three together and place at one end of the shelf, they then become the perfect thickness to be able to see the spine of the box on the end, and still not see the cardboard packer.
At the price this is a recommended piece of kit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst Boots Ever !, 2 Sept. 2014
Bought these 12 months ago, and were very comfortable on the first fitting which suggested well for the future, but first impressions are not the best !
They are NOT Waterproof. Not in a million years. After many treatings with Nikwax, they still let in water after 5 minutes walking in wet grass,and I suspect that, like lots of other boots on the market that have woven fabric panels in the construction, can not be waterproofed and let in the water. Think about it.
Perhaps it is a case of cheap "waterproof" membranes being used to keep the price down.
The lining in the heel has also split and torn and has rendered the boots unwearable.
I shall be purchasing a pair of leather boots in the near future which ARE waterproof and can be re-proofed, as I have proved in the past.
Buy these at this price, be prepare to be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. Poor quality seat material, 3 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not bad. Poor quality seat material., as is the bag, and the bag is too small.
Bought a much better quality seat, and bag from 'Trespass' on the high street, and it was £1.00 cheaper too.
