5.0 out of 5 stars Neat but strong extension lead., 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Popped it under carpet to link in with TV. Some extension leads are a bit flimsy bit this does its job well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product for protecting and storing DVDs, 6 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With newly transferred DVDs mounting up I needed an alternative way to protect and store them as boxes were taking up too much storage space. These do the job well as they're roomy and strong. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great purchase for transferring VHS library to DVD, 6 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have used Verbatim DVDs for several years now and the quality has remained high. So far I have transferred 15 VHS tapes to these new DVD-R ones and have been very pleased with the results. No problems at all. Definitely a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our second LG TV is even better than the first one., 22 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our previous 42 inch LG TV is still going strong after several years but as it was taking up as much space as a 50 inch TV because of huge side speaker rims we made a snap decision to use the 50 inches more efficiently and enjoy .a bigger picture.
After considering LEDs rather than plasma and other makes like Toshiba, we decided on this one because of our previous good experience of LG TVs and excellent ratings given here.
It was reasonably easy to set up but the base is a bit flimsy compared to the previous - heavier one - so attaching existing anchoring cords between TV and wall is even more important to prevent it toppling. Setting up the picture etc and stations was straightforward, but when the picture suddenly darkened, the ECO setting was instantly thought to be the culprit - and so it turned out. We did what a reviewer here had advised - and selected STANDARD and immediately got an excellent picture - though there are other choices for sport, movies etc.
Some buyers have complained about the sound but for us [one with excellent hearing and the other with hearing aids] it is perfectly acceptable and we're very pleased with our purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful netbook bag, 3 Jan. 2014

I got this before I went to Canada so that it was readily available for check-in but it's been so useful for keeping everything in one place. So glad i got it - and the mouse is good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful External Driver RW, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for a netbook that doesn't have a DVD drive. However I soon found it useful for copying CDs or DVDs on my desktop or laptop. It was so much easier to copy simultaneously rather than having to copy data on to the hard drive first before copying.

It produced good DVDs and CDs as a stand-alone DVD RW so I am very pleased with it.


Andrew James Powerful 300 Watt Hand Mixer With Chrome Beaters, Dough Hooks, 5 Speed With Turbo Button Includes Balloon Whisk
Andrew James Powerful 300 Watt Hand Mixer With Chrome Beaters, Dough Hooks, 5 Speed With Turbo Button Includes Balloon Whisk

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful hand mixer but bit heavy!, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made product that's very efficient but a little clumsy to use. There isn't a traditional ON/OFF switch just 0 at the end of graded speeds 0-5 that lie horizontally; so you need two hands to operate safely.

That said it mixes well and I'm sure it's strong enough to mix dough - though I haven't tried that yet.

Has very thorough instructions so there's no excuse for putting mixers in the wrong hole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for new android owners, 21 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For those like me who have moaned about the lack of any instruction being supplied with the Nexus 7, here is the solution! The author doesn't recommend that you read this detailed book from cover to cover. Instead he has set out the book into self-contained chapters that make it easy to unlock the secrets and unfamiliar control of androids like the nexus, when they are needed. Cross referencing is tidy so if you want to go off at a tangent to find more information on a related topic he gives you the relevant chapter.

All I can say to new owners is 'buy this book to get the most out of your android'. It is pointless to waste hours trying to figure things out when the answer to most of your problems lie within its pages.

This really is an excellent book and I look forward to becoming an expert in androids over the next few months. I can highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential kit to go with a Nexus 7, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This selection turned out to be very useful when setting up my new Nexus. I would have liked precise instructions for putting on the screen protector together with a card - or at least information that a credit or similar card would help to eliminate bubbles. But maybe that's expecting too much.
I loved the rubber ended pen to use instead of ageing fingers. It certainly helps to improve accuracy on a tiny tablet.
