4.0 out of 5 stars Einhell Folding Truck 90kg Capacity, 18 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Required trolley for carrying 20 - 30kg of tool box and other equipment over paved highway routes of about a mile in length. After 4 return journeys, trolley has so far stood up very well to required work. When using the trolley, I prefer to tow it, for this, the trolley is reasonably comfortable to tow, but does need a firm grip as it tends to jolt slightly. In terms of strapping down cargo, I use bungies - for which the frame of the trolley has a fair number of places where a bungie can hook. Wheels and axle - after reading the reviews about this trolley, I was concerned over failure of the wheels, for this reason I made sure axle / wheel bearings are lubricated - so far no problem. However, I have noticed very small shavings of rubber eroding off the tyre surfaces - this appears to be very minor, and may be due to the surfaces I am using the trolley over - which include a recently loose chipping surfaced road. So far considering cost and what else is available, this has proved to be ok - only time will tell how good a design of trolley this actually is.

5.0 out of 5 stars De'Longhi DES12 Compact Dehumidifier Review, 21 April 2012

Due to having a small house with a damp problems in concealed spaces, I found I frequently needed to use a dehumidifier, as I have found them to be a big help. This is my second dehumidifer, purchased and installed 2 months ago, to replace its predecessor which had lasted 14 months. So far I have found this product to have the following advantages and disadvantages.

Very easy to operate - Only a rotary switch (apart from the mains power supply), with 2 indicator lights.
Compact and mounted on castors, as well as being lightweight, I find it easy to move.
The water canister is inside, it is a good size and is easy to remove for emptying (the water is used in our domestic iron and for watering plants).
Water level can be seen through the side of the dehumidifier. When positioned at top of stairs - this is easy to see, (but maybe not so if you have to bend over, kneel down, or have a back problem).
When water canister is full, dehumidifier automatically stops.
The dehumidifier can also be used to assist in indoor clothes drying (separate setting for this purpose).
When it reaches the set standard of humidity, it will shut down - it restarts when humidity increases.

Needs to stand slightly away from the wall.
Exhaust air is cold (the previous dehumidifier discharged warm air - it was a different type of dehumidifier though).
When reinstalling the empty water canister, a little care needs be taken to fold down a sensor lever to stop it snagging on the dehumidifier.
It is a little bit noisy when operating.
There is no setting for standard of humidity, only Minimum to Maximum (not 50%, 60% etc).

So far I am happy with this product, as the disadvantages are minor. It has only been in operation a short time, so the real test will be to see how it is still going in another couple of years (or more).

5.0 out of 5 stars Collins Paris Personal Organiser 2011 in pink - Review, 9 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as a present for my wife - she was very pleased with it - her previous diary for 2011 fell apart through frequent use after a month. This Organiser appears to be well made, is easy to use and is handling frequent use very well - considering the use it is getting. Organiser came with 2011 Diary, Notes, Finances, Addresses, To Do lists as well as several other sections. Appears to be good value for money.
