5.0 out of 5 stars H.P. Heavenly Printer, 25 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This manufacture hits the spot with the Envy 5530. Packaging is a delight. Making for an easy and stress free set up.
Supplied with UK & Continental power lead, no usb cable - not a problem for me - installation CD - though it was not required, a pack of [small] photo paper, and easy read instructions.
Printers' touch screen is a joy to behold and a delight to use. It made installation of a secure wireless network easy. Even the sounds it emits are happy ones. A 2.4 Ghz router (sky) requires the password to be entered, which allowed all other devices to be remotely connected.
So far have printed wirelessly via desk top, lap top & BlackBerry Q10.
Registration includes an email address for the printer, which, yes, means that as long as there's a WiFi or phone signal available you can print directly to the 5530 from anywhere in the world, via email.
Aesthetically this bannishes most upright printers to a dusty shelf. It does look good in the black & silver livery. What else?
Oh, the cartridges look small but the ink is tip top. Having printed both print & images, colours seem HP vivid.
It seems too easy but because of simplicity plus three price bands - which is based upon the number of pages you print monthly - I signed up for HP ink to be delivered (the 9930 emails base when it's running low) on a monthly deal, which includes discount, and bags to send recyclable cartridges back post free. And so I guess I'm helping unnecessary wastage.
Only just set up, so far so blinking good.
Print speeds are reasonable, noise level's fine, set up and support + free mobile apps make this printer heavenly.
One tip:
Ensure all internal packaging is removed otherwise the 5530 tells you off!
Great addition to any desk top.
Recommended, despite one or two iffy reviews here.
Go wireless, Go HP!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Present, 6 Dec. 2014
Bought to replace its four year old equivalent, this cushion appears to maintain the same quality as the original.
New house, new chair, and so new Sidhil.

The cover is not identical to its predecessor, but this apart the item is doing the job very well.

May buy one for myself too!
Very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars ahhh Stanley, 13 Nov. 2014
These bent long nose pliers were bought as a present. The recipient is an engineer, and, like me, loves this light and short tool, which is just right to reach those niggling places other pliers won't reach.
Recommended... well done Stanley!


Tenn-Outdoors Men's 8 Panel Professional Moulded Pad Cycling Shorts
Tenn-Outdoors Men's 8 Panel Professional Moulded Pad Cycling Shorts
Price: £9.00 - £24.74

5.0 out of 5 stars Tenn Star!, 17 Sept. 2014
Having bought a set of the 'Combo' downhill/ outdoor 3/4 length shorts & padded liners, I was delighted to receive these eight panel shorts as a gift, to augment the Tenn Combos.
These shorts are well made and robust. The inner padding light and comfortable. They are a 'firm fit' and the sealing tape edging around the waist and thighs is not too tight, yet gives the feeling of good support.
Washed twice, the only thing that's suffered wear is the manufacturers' logo.
Extremely comfortable shorts, affording good comfort, at an affordable price.
Highly recommended.
Well done Tenn!
Pity there are only five stars to give!
Excellent!

Saris Rack Accessories Protect-O-Pads

Offered by Y Frame Discounts Ltd

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool! and worth it ..., 25 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are terrific!
Having bought the three bike Bones rack, this accessory is obvious, if you love your bike(s) the cubes will fit pedals, bike tubes, spokes or crossbars, and will protect both the bikes' and your cars' paintwork from inadvertent scratches. They are virtually indestructible and offer great protection. The cubes, 'Protect-O-Pads'retain their shape and are easy to store. Also very useful with garage stored bikes. Glad I bought them.

Great accessory for the Saris bike racks. Clip hooks are easily adjusted and keep wheels or other moving bike parts rigid, together and safe. Strong, 12mm wide black webbing tape.


Saris Bones 3 Bike Boot Rack - Red

5.0 out of 5 stars Well designed, cleverly engineered. These Bones are Brilliant!, 25 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a truly great bike rack. designed by people who know about bikes
At the time of purchase, no tow bar was available for our make of car, and so having looked on the Saris web site, checked out independent reviews and the ones here, at this place, then having looked at 'traditional' racks, opted for this Bones 3 Bike Boot Rack - Red.
Good decision.
This Rack revolves, literally, around its one, central, rigid,immensely strong, grooved, aluminium spindle.
The 'arms' - for the boot lid or rear tailgate - and the 'legs' - for the bumper, are adjusted via strong, easy turn black plastic thumbscrew threads.
Each of the two 'legs' or 'arms' has a hinged flexible, soft but strong black foot at its end, which, at any angle evenly distributes weight.
The two supports each have three, padded 'cradles' to accept your bikes' crossbar(s) and adjust independently, again secured via thumbscrew threads.
It is easy to comprehend, all soon becomes clear that, rather like a suspension bridge, that this creates equal and opposite support,for your bikes, arched rigidity for the 'arms' and 'legs'.
Two upper, two middle and two lower straps are permanently secured within the main spindle, and this neat design solution means that each of the six 'hooks' or attachment points is easily stowed away when not in use.
These plastic covered hooks which attach to the boot or tailgate,are freely adjustable with spring buckles on the ends of the strong 19mm wide webbing tapes.
This rack is difficult to fault. It has a decent carrying capacity (15kg per bike). Ok, maybe less than a tow bar mounted type, but even carrying two e bikes ... with their batteries removed ... I found it both easy and quick to fit.
Plastic tensioners on the cradles have easy to thread buckles, and there are tensioners for the bikes' cross struts too.

Already this fabulous rack has survived the rigours of two hour long ferry trips.
Pros: Light, easily fitted and robust, quick assembly with plenty of attachment points. Choice of colour. Accepts all shape of bike, right way up or upside down. Lifetime warranty.
Cons: None as yet. Although some will baulk at Saris recommending you don't travel with the rack empty.
Bought the excellent Saris accessories ... the foam protection cubes, plus the Saris wheel straps. This rack is five star for sure!
One tip: I put some foam, self adhesive tape on the underside of the top hooks, to further protect paintwork, but it's probably unnecessary.
Since this original review ... I have read at this place that other reviewers have encountered problems with ladies, or drop - bar bicycles ... I overcame this by inverting the bike.
