They're well made gloves with a cosy lining. They cost virtually nothing and are very warm. That's a five out of five then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bullet-proof Classic, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its a watch, with a stopwatch, alarms, time and date. They pretty much last for ever and are waterproof enough for anyone but Jacques Cousteau. I bought this one because the strap on my last one gave up and the watch fell off somewhere between my home and the pub. I expect to keep this one till I die.

I have a fancy 'dress' watch, but for everything else its the F-91. A watch with its own Wikipedia page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casio_F-91W

I can't fault this centre punch. It was inexpensive and does the job perfectly. Er that's it really - one struggles to wax lyrical about such utilitarian items ;-)

Not the prettiest thing and a little tight on the connection, but otherwise absolutely fine. What more do you expect at this price?

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Cables, 21 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a bit sceptical about these HDMI cables because they cost a pound and a penny with no delivery charge.

But what is life without a bit of risk? So I ordered three anyway and was shocked to find they're absolutely perfect. Very happy indeed with them and cannot understand why people (like me, before) spent ten pounds or more on them.

Recommended.

Bought these for my other half. She is notoriously fussy about just about everything so I was expecting to have to return them ...

To my surprise she fell in love with them straightaway and has worn them continuously since Christmas Day. Thank you Amazon!

1.0 out of 5 stars 48 Hours, 17 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It charged quite quickly and ran quite well for a while. Then it suddenly stopped working. The battery wouldn't charge and plugging it in just made the yellow light on the phone flash intermittently.

I assumed my phone was to blame and went as far as arranging for it to be collected by courier for a repair under warranty. But by chance I bumped into someone who had the same phone and it was after we'd swapped batteries that I realised it wasn't my phone.
The seller gave me a refund immediately after I reported this to him so I have no complaints. Just bear in mind you get what you pay for.

Incidentally this review is called '48 Hours' because that's how long the battery lasted.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must for all Junior Farmers, 15 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its a lot smaller than it looks on the Amazon site, but this aside its a great combination of trailer and combine harvester. My three year old son was delighted with his. Very solid and well made too, something of a rarity in this day and age of flimsy, plastic toys.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Essential Guide, 11 Jan. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I travel in India every year and pick a new one up every time. I usually leave the old one for Indian relatives who say they're an excellent read ;)
Even if you're not travelling in India, this book is fascinating and 'unputdownable'. It covers every aspect of this complex and ancient country in informative, readable sections ranging from history, culture, language, politics through to food, bribes, sex, drugs and Bollywood movies. From personal knowledge I can confirm that this edition has been updated to reflect recent changes (a must since India is currently one of the most rapidly transforming nations on earth) and the intelligent coverage even includes analysis of the effects of the IT and BioMedical science booms on Indian society.
There are others, but this is the essential one. I'd recommend it to anyone, from those horrid chavs one sees gurning it up at Goa nowadays to actual Indian people. Its a great one to keep on the lav and keep dipping into too!


The Argumentative Indian: Writings on Indian History, Culture and Identity
The Argumentative Indian: Writings on Indian History, Culture and Identity

5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible, Intellectual Holiday (or Domestic) Reading, 11 Jan. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In which Nobel Prize winning economist and thinker Amartya Sen tackles a variety of subjects relating to the subcontinent from ancient Vedic times to the present day in a very readable collection of essays and articles.

Themes covered include Hindu art and literature, Indian nationalism, the secular state, India's colonial past, Gandhi and so on. No great surprises in the choice of ground to cover but the perspective is a refreshing one. As a very successful NRI (non-resident Indian, an expat) Sen has no axe to grind and casts a dispassionate (some would say Western) eye over the last four thousand years of Indian culture and history.

A must-read for anyone interested in getting more than a cursory impression of this ancient and complex country. The perfect companion to the essential The Rough Guide to India.
