5.0 out of 5 stars Soft on the ear and the wallet, 14 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing value and quality. Purchased for Technics RP HT80 headphones which have 70mm diameter speakers. Perfect fit including seating the securing flap which sits in the grove. Saved a perfectly good pair of headphones being ditched because of old perished ear cushions . Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best value 501s, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These days Levis seem to be a silly price, and these were at the best price I could find, and even then seem a lot for a pair of jeans! I have been wearing 501s on and off for over 45 years. I would prefer to buy the shrink to fit if they were readily available, however these are the next best thing. Exactly the same fit as my black 501s I bought a few years ago in Debenhams. A few reviews claim they are fake Levis, well they seem 100% genuine to me, and apart from the colour are identical to my black ones. So the real thing at the best price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes light work of the dark., 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very impressive torch for the price. Well made and feels a quality item. Excellent illumination, especially considering how small it is. The zoom function allows a wide area of very bright light in its widest position and then, depending how far ahead you wish the beam to go, you can zoom to a long beam of light to pick out distant objects, up to, I would guess, 50m to 75m away. Not sure how long the brightest beam will last on continuous use, but you can change it to medium or even low setting and still have a perfectly adequate amount of light for a much longer period of time. I have only used the high powered rechargeable battery supplied, but you have the option of using 3xAAA batteries should it be required. Comes in a nice foam lined hard plastic case. I can't imagine you can find anything of better value for the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good points are that it lasts well over a week ..., 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good points are that it lasts well over a week between charges and gives a reasonable shave though probably not much better than my 8 year old Braun.

Bad points are that it packed in working after about 6 to 7 months. Dead as a Dodo. Amazon asked me to see what Braun say. If they can't sort it then a replacement or refund will be offered.

Not sure I want another one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearly top value, 26 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are sold as safety glasses, but for me they are excellent for cycling, if you also need glasses for reading. My +1.50 bifocal sun glasses are not quite doing the job any more and I was looking for something a bit stronger. Saw these advertised and they seemed good value. Very pleased as with three pairs, I now have all weather conditions covered and they are very good optically. Clear vision through the top "normal" lens area and good magnification through the bottom reading segments without distortion. Amazing quality for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value sturdy DC07 replacement handle, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My original cyclone handle has developed a crack so only a matter of time until it fails. Otherwise the vacuum is all good and performing well, so didn't want to spend a lot buying a new one if I could find a replacement handle at a good price. I believe that Dyson only sell the whole cyclone assembly and that it is around £60. Bit steep when only the handle is failing. So when I saw this at £13.99 I thought "sorted". The unit is held by 3 torx screws, plus a further torx screw secures the release rod mechanism which drops the flap on the bottom of the dust container. Reassembly can be very difficult because of lining the rod up, unless you release the bottom flap before taking it apart. Once the flap is open you can line the rod up with your fingers through the bottom of the unit while feeding it down from the top. Make sure you pull the release ring up while doing this to make it easier.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but short life., 19 Nov. 2013
When I bought these they were easy to set up and worked just fine. Literally plug and play. But although they have a 3 year warranty Amazon only cover them for 12 months. One of mine stopped working after 16 months. I have contacted the manufacturer as advised by Amazon and am waiting to hear from them. I have a feeling that although they will likely replace them I will have to pay postage which makes the original purchase not such a good deal. I will probably decide to buy two new ones from Argos. At least you can return them during the entire 3 year warranty period should another failure occur in the future.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't fit so no use, but full refund given, 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The length and width dimensions of the insert clip of the extender match the item description, and the corresponding dimensions of the belts fitted in the vehicle (Renault Trafic), but it was too thick by a couple of mm. to go into the seat belt clip receiver so could not be used. The supplier was very helpful and understanding, but the item was not any use to us so was returned for a refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ethernet "adaptor", 13 Nov. 2012
I needed to divide a hard wired feed from my PC, via the mains wiring using Homeplugs, to supply a Smart TV and PS3. This gizmo does exactly that. Plug it in to the mains, connect the incoming ethernet feed and then connect with ethernet cables (not supplied) to the devices you wish to use. No setting up just plug and play.

Next time I will order the capsules. Finding these tablets a bit harder to swallow. Probably a personal thing, but for me the capsules are much easier to take. Otherwise no complaints!
