Gorilla Glue 60ml
Gorilla Glue 60ml
Offered by Fallenangel5599
Price: £3.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-clog bottle, sticks most things, 8 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gorilla Glue 60ml (DIY & Tools)
This stuff is great, it will stick just about anything to anything. The design of this small bottle is good, the nozzle doesn't clog and the contents start to set like the large 250ml bottles. This size is perfect for smaller jobs, I used it to repair a leather bag handle which is still holding strong, also used to attach clear parts to scale models.
Clamp the 2 bits you are gluing together until it sets and it will not come apart, great for things that superglue will not touch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic, does the job well enough and looks OK, 8 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fits perfectly, should do the job as intended. Was delivered promptly and intact. The plastic feels a little cheap but that is to be expected, it is good for the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive history but heavy on acronyms, 4 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems like full accounts of all the major actions of the period but slightly let down by the heavy use of acronyms with no explanation. OK if you know all the terminology.

Has lots of logistical movements which do not add much to the narrative.

2.0 out of 5 stars claims to be free, no mention that “trial period" expires, 20 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It says free tv, but if I try to watch anything it stops after a minute and says trial period expired and expects money to continue. It already had adverts every time to select a channel which would be fair enough if it was free, but adverts and still limited trial period? I can't see in the description any mention of limited use unless subscription paid. Dodgy.

3.0 out of 5 stars great when it works, crashes to desktop a lot., 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Real Racing 3 (App)
Content and graphics are good. Can be frustrating as the ai is non existent. The cpu cars just follow a set line so just run you off the road or into barriers unless you time the overtakes for a wide bit of track. Variety of cars and race modes is good and upgrades at lower levels are easy to earn.
The biggest issue is the constant game crashes, sometimes when starting to load a race which is mildly annoying, but also sometimes when it is saving result at the end which means you lose the win/rewards.
It rarely goes more than about 3-4 races without closing itself down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and OK for the price., 25 Sept. 2013

Pros: good price, decent mechanism for adjusting grip.
Cons: pads are not grippy or soft so items that are not 100% flat just slip out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Smaller than Original 60GB, but rubbish disk lid and only 2 USB instead of 4, 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice size, I am hoping they have improved the reliability compared to the original 'fat' PS3 but we will see.

Smaller size = good, fits under TV easier.
Bigger hard disk = good, and sensible since disks are so cheap now.

2 x USB ports = bad. Seriously, how expensive are USB ports? No excuse for cutting the amount of ports.
No more PS2 support = bad. Why remove support when it used to be there? A cynical attempt to get you to buy new games, the machine has the ability as the original version had it, but they remove it for the slim versions. I expect that kind of stuff from Microsoft.
No way to copy over content or save games from old faulty PS3 = Bad, I understand encryption to prevent copying, but the new PS3 is registered with same user details as the old one was, surely you should be able to connect the old hard disk up with a USB caddy and read it? No.

Summary: too many sacrifices for the sake of a cheaper price. No option to buy a fully featured model any more either, budget spec or nothing. This is a backward step not an improvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality, excellent for the price, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These seem decent build quality and you cannot complain for the price. I probably would not want to be cutting anything too heavy duty but then that is not what they are for.
I bought these and a spare pair for cutting plastic model pieces from their runners and they are perfect for the job. Comfortable grips, flush-cut blades and spring loaded handles. No need to spend any more when these fit the bill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handles SDHC cards fine., 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Positives: Small, cheap, variety of cards supported.

Negatives: Not much, usb cable a little short but fine for a laptop.

So far it has worked fine, only used with SDHC so far but no issues yet. Unsure about quality of contacts but it is cheap enough so if it does break it can always be replaced cheaply enough.

It is small so would fit easily in your pocket. It comes with a thin mini USB cable which is 18" long for connecting to your PC's USB port. It has a small red access LED on the top which flashes when the card is in use.
Plug & Play with windows 7, no drivers required.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent features, great coffee. Needs careful maintenance., 16 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just bought my second one of these. I loved the first one but it has finally given up after 2 years of very heavy use and abuse. This is the only machine of its type I have found that will take a full size cup, it has all the features you would expect and looks great.
Other reviews have said there are problems with the filters blocking which may be true but if you keep them clean all the time they should not clog. I personally use ESE pods in mine all the time so as long as I flush the pod filter through with a quick blast of water regularly it stays free-flowing.
Follow the instructions and you get a great cup of coffee and it should last for a long time. Spares seal can be required after a lot of use, they are not expensive but you have to get them from Dualit direct and they may have stock delays.
