AF sprayduster is along the same lines as the lindy compressed air can product and I got one of these ones because it cost less than the lindy one I had that ran out. The af sprayduster is as good as the lindy product but as it is cheaper to buy it is the one I think I will go for again when it runs out.
I got the spray because I wanted it for help to get rid of dust from areas that are hard to reach on the computer, laptop, keyboards etc. I even used this to get rid of some dust at the back of the tv that was blocking the air vents and the spray was very good at clearing the dust away.
The af sprayduster can has pure compressed air in it and I think it works great as it has enough power to blow dust and crumbs and dirt off of keyboards with no effort. I think it is a very handy bit of kit and I will buy it again after finding it easy to use.
I know buying air in a can sounds weird but it does work great at cleaning away stuff you can't normally reach. The spray is safe to use on lots of computer and office equipment.
You do need to use care with some air cleaning sprays when cleaning more delicate stuff because too heavy a pressure on the spray gives a strong blast of air and that can be harder to control. The built in actuator this one has will help to control how strong the blast of spray can be and I think thats useful.
The spray is 100% ozone friendly which is good. The spray is non flammable athough I wouldn't use it near open flames anyway. The spray comes with a small spray tube like a thin straw and that is good to put on when using the spray to direct it to where you want the air to go.
I have used the spray on all kinds of stuff and it has helped with cleaning and clearing dusty bits that I wouldn't be able to reach without it. I would recommend the spray because it is a very useful thing for keeping computers, tvs and printers etc dust and dirt free.
To buy a can of the sf sprayduster you will pay £4 and no more than £5. You can get 125ml or 200ml cans and I think its better to get the biggest one you can so it lasts a bit longer.
For anyone who has a pc and likes to tinker with it or just wants a good little set to keep for moments when things are going wrong the startech screwdriver kit is a good bit of kit.
I have a set that I can use for little jobs when I need to use them and I think the set works great. The thing with small components in pc s etc is that they are often tiny. Then if you haven't got a set of matching tiny screwdrivers you end up stuffed and unable to even open the housing let alone fix the problem.
The set I got was cheap to buy and cost less than £10. I think the price was good for what I got. The screwdrivers in the set are small and well made and they are a group of 7 that should fit a lot of the things that you need to work on with no bother.
When I have used the screwdrivers I have had no problems with them and I do try to be not to heavy handed when I use them. I know that trying to put too much pressure on something when trying to unscrew it can mean a screw head that is damaged beyond being able to be taken off. It can also damage your screwdriver tip and make it nigh on useless.
Luckily I have not had these types of problems and I put that down to good products and my careful usage. I think the thin but well made handles are ok and I haven't had any problems when using them. My hands are a bit big to grip them but I can do so with care.
In the set you get the following 1 slot 2.0 x 50mm, 1 slot 2.4 x 50mm, 1 slot 3.0 x 50mm
Plus a phillips 00 x 50mm and a phillips 1 x 50mm and a torx t15 x 50mm and t20 x 50mm
The set has a 1 year guarantee but I haven't had to use it. The set is useful for fixing other small items as well and its a good multi purpose kit. I would recommend it not only for computers because I have used it on other small screws and fixings and it has been handy to have.
I think red bull is a drink that can be too much for me sometimes and I have had to give it up because it makes me a bit edgy. I used to drink it on and off and I liked the taste it had but it had a bad effect on me and made me stressed.
The taste of the drink is tangy but its sweet also and I think it is a bit like hyped up lemonade. When I was drinking the red bull I liked the taste and used it to give me an energy boost when I needed it. I think that it made me feel a bit too hyped if I had more than one and thats why I stopped drinking it.
The can that the red bull comes in is thin and tall and it can get knocked over easy because the base is not very wide. The ring pull comes off easy and then you can drink straight form the can with no bother. You can mix the drink or drink it on its own if you want to.
The drink has a lot of stuff in it like taurine, glucuronolactone, caffeine, B vitamins, sucrose and glucose. I think its the caffeine that makes you a bit more alert or in my case hyped. The caffeine in each can is the same as what you get in a strong cup of coffee.
There has been controversy about the drink and what is in it and that alone is a reason not to buy it. Because it made me feel nervy and unhappy when I drank more than one close together I will not ever buy it again and I stick to different drinks instead now.
You get 250mls of the drink in each can and for me I became stressed if I drank more than one close together. I wouldn't recommend red bull because of that and I think its better to stick to normal drinks instead from now on.
You can buy a 250ml can of red bull for £1.35 and I think that is expensive. It can be cheaper in some places but I don't want to use it again so I am not bothered any more.
I think the dkny bottle the red delicious for men comes in is pretty damn cool. The bottle looks like a juicy red apple and it is easy to use and looks great too. The bottle is short and not very tall because apples are that kinda shape of course and I think the effect is good.
The name of the fragrance is reflected in the bottle design and I do think of juicy sweet red apples when I see the bottle in front of me. The red glass is very cool but you can still see the fragrance inside the bottle and keep and eye on how much you have left in it. I like that because its a handy way of keeping a check on the amount of fragrance you have to use.
The top of the bottle is plastic and has a bit of a cheapo fell about it but it works to do what is should when I use it. To get a bit of the fragrance out a quick push down on the lid will send out a decent squirt of fragrance but the spray is not very fine and more of a splash than a mist kinda thing. I don't mind but it does all go in one area and needs a bit of rubbing on my skin when I wear it.
Funny thing with this one is that women like this a lot and I have had some of the fragrance borrowed because women do like the smell of it on themselves as well as on guys. I think the fragrance could have been unisex but I know there is a womans version as well. I think it is just about manly enough to get away with not being unisex but it is pretty close to that.
The smell of the fragrance is red and juicy and has a strong red apple an alcohol smell about it when you first put it on. The mix of ingredients in the fragrance make a good fragrance but I don't ever think it stays on me for very long and that is the downside of this one.
After about 2 hours I don't smell all that much of the fragrance and can't tell if I am wearing it or not. I think that is a bit poor for a well known brand like this one that is not cheap to buy. I do like the smell but to make it last I need to put more on to know its there and that means faffing about with the bottle when away from home.
I think the cognac, vodka, apple and coffee in the red apple fragrance do go together well and I like the warm spiced but fruity alcohol smell I get. I think it is a bit of a let down when it lasts for such a short period and that is my only problem with the fragrance. I would like it more if it stayed put better.
I would recommend the fragrance because it does smell good but only if you can pick it up for a bit less than the £34 for 50mls you most often find it for. I think for that money it should last a lot longer and because it doesn't I cant say it is really worth that much. The look is great and the aroma is good but with it going so quickly I think it could be better.
I like the ed hardy artwork that is on clothing, accessories and now the fragrances and when I saw the ed hardy hearts and daggers fragrance I wanted to give it a try out. I think the look of the fragrance box is very cool with a lot of ed hardy artwork on it and it makes it look funky and cool.
I think the box stands out a lot when it is next to other fragrances because the look is very different to a lot of the more classic style fragrance brands. I think the bottle is clever and keeps the hearts and daggers theme going well. The bottle stands up and it isn't easy to knock over, it is heavy enough to keep upright when I use it.
The bottle and box together look great. I think they make the fragrance an ideal present for younger fragrance wearers and anyone in to the ed hardy range of products. I think it would be a great christmas present for someone because it looks so good and the smell is good too.
The price for the hearts and daggers fragrance is still higher than it should be but you can pick up a big 100ml fragrance bottle from some shops for a reduced price at the moment. I have seen the fragrance in debenhams for £45 for the same size but its in boots for £30 now and I think thats a great price if you want to get a bottle of hearts and daggers.
When I use the fragrance I get a strong peppery aroma from it that is mixed with a lot of fruity influences. I like the fruit and spiced aroma I can detect with the fragrance but there is a kind of herby aroma in this that I think is basil and rosemary.
Don't worry about the basil and rosemary being too much. You won't end up smelling like a pizza because the fruity pear and papaya in the fragrance give a great boost that smells good but not in femnine way. The sandalwood and patchoulli make the fragrance last better on me.
The lasting time of the fragrance is ok for me and I can wear it for a few hours and still smell it. It doesn't leave much smell on clothing when I get it on stuff by accident and it is lighter than a lot of other fragrances I have worn. I like the different aroma it has and the peppery fruity aroma makes a good change to more sporty or musky and woody fragrances.
I think the hearts and daggers fragrance works and I like the way it is when you wear it for a few hours. I think a lot of people will like the fragrance and it has a young and funky look and smell that will make a lot of people happy if bought as a present this christmas. I would recommend it because it wears well.
I think the calvin klein mens fragrances are a mixed bag and some are better than others. The eternity for men fragrance is one that I think is more masculine than the unisex aromas that the brand produce. I think it works better than some of the others and is easy to wear.
The bottle the eternity for men comes in is good. I think it has enough weight to keep it standing tall and not get knocked about. I like the look of it because it has a modern design that suits the fragrance you get in the bottle. The clear glass lets you see how much is left to use up and I think that is a help.
The top of the bottle has a silver trim and the spraying on bit is easy to use when you get the hang of it. I think its easy to use and it gives the right amount of fragrance for each side of my neck when I wear this. No waste or over spray at all.
The colour of the fragrance is a light golden one and I think it looks good in the clear bottle. I think the fragrance will be a good present because it looks good and smells good when you wear it. It has a fresh woody masculine aroma that has a lot going on but it works well when its on me.
When I first use the eternity fragrance I think it has a cool edge that is full of citrus and lavender. The citrus I get is either orange or maybe mandarin and it works with the lavender to make the first feeling I get very fresh. When the aroma dries a bit the fragrance gets deeper and I can smell the change it makes and the citrus goes away a bit.
There are herbs in the fragrance and the basil and sage in eternity are very green. I think they balance out the citrus and lavender well. The more the fragrance is on the more you get a warmer smelling amber and woody smell and I like the depth I get over a couple of hours when the fragrance changes.
I don't think the fragrance will be one that you will find hard to wear. I have had no problems with headaches and stuff when I have had this on for a more than a few hours. I think the aroma the fragrance has is easy for lots of people to wear and many people will like the fragrance.
The price is mid range and a 100ml bottle can be £36 to £44 to buy. I don't think its cheap but prices for this are varied and I think you can pick it up cheaper with a bit of shopping about for it. I would recommend the fragrance because it has an easy to like aroma that lasts well.
I have a smaller and larger cordoba expander case and I think the two are well made. The 55cm suit case is well made and gives a lot of protection to your gear when you need to pack it all in to a case. When you go on your holidays or on short trips its good to know that your stuff will be safe and I think its better to pay a bit more and get a decent suitcase.
I have seen these cases on sale for £119 but when I got mine I was lucky because the cases were reduced by a lot. My bigger case was £79 in the sale and the smaller one was £55. I was happy with the price because these are very good cases and they last well.
The cases can be expensive because they are made by samsonite and I know you can buy much cheaper cases. I think the quality of the samsonite brand makes it worth spending a bit more to buy suitcases made by them. I have noticed the samsonite cases are better made with good stitching and zips.
The 55 cm case has storage space for shorter trips but its not as good for longer holidays because its smaller than my other case. I think it is useful to have a couple of sizes of suitcase because I don't always need a great big case all the time.
The front pockets on the suitcase can store extras if I need them to. I think this is good because I sometimes end up wanting to pack in a few more things and end up short of space in the main compartment. The inside of the suitcase is not as roomy as my larger case but it works well for weekend trips etc.
There is a top zip section inside the case which is helpful. The wheels on the samsonite cordoba suitcase are good and I haven't had any problems with them when using a fully packed case. The wheels don't get stuck and they are easy to clean if I need to clean them up a bit.
The way the case is made is good when it comes to locking the case. The zips can be locked up on this case and I find that very easy and useful. The built in combination lock is there ready to use. When you put the zip tags in place and it holds them shut and locked tight. With this case you don't even need to get a padlock and that saves a bit of money and stops me looking for keys to open locks etc.
The case is very well made and it comes in black or red. I think both look good but the black is more masculine. The material used is very good it has a quality that I like and I think it looks smart. The handles on the case work ok and I like the way the top handle pushes in or out when you need it. I would recommend it the case because it works well.
The innocent smoothies that I have tried are mostly good but I have had some that I didn't like as much. When I first tried them I had to get used to the thicker texture they have but when I got used to that I began to like them.
The company do a lot of different products and they include the innocent smoothie drinks. You can buy them in small 250ml bottles or as bigger cartons. Both are good but better value os from the cartons in the end because you get more of the smoothie drink in them.
I like the peach and passion fruit smoothie and it looks inviting when you see it in the smaller bottles because the light peach colour is warm and fruity looking. I think the look is important because it makes you want to try the drink out.
The peach flavour in the peach and passion fruit smoothie is good and it goes well with the passion fruit but there are other fruits in the smoothie as well. I am sure there is banana in them because I could taste it. I have tried drinking the smoothies over crushed ice and it works well on a hot day.
In the peach and passion fruit smoothie there are a total of 6 fruits and the drink can make up part of your 5 a day because it counts as 2 portions of fruit. I think that makes it useful for people who don't like eating fruit as it is but don't mind it as a drink like this one.
When I had the kiwi apple and lime smoothie I was a bit put off by the colour of the drink because it looks green. When I drank it it tasted better than it looked. The ingredients in the drink include nettle and spinach as well as apple kiwi lime and grapes. It sounds odd but the taste is good if you can get over the green colour.
The price of the drinks is not cheap but the 1 litre cartons are not too bad at about £3 each. I would recommend the innocent smoothie drinks because they are full of fruit, made with fresh ingredients and taste good. They can be part of your 5 a day as well.
The paco rabanne homme fragrance is one I like for anytime. I have a bottle of this that I have had for about 2 years now and it still smells good. The bottle is close to the last few drops but it still smells as good as it did when I first got it. I think that shows this is a good fragrance that is made to last well.
I like the bottle with its bottle green look and I think the shape is good as well. The lid twists off and my bottle is easy to use and feels solid and strong. The box that you get the fragrance in is smart and continues the dark green theme well. I like the whole look and think its very classic.
The fragrance can be 50mls or 100mls and my last bottle was the 100ml sized one. I think it lasted very well as it has been in use for 2 years on and off. The fragrance can be bought for about £19.99 for the 50ml bottle when it is on offer. The larger bottle can be £38, but I think thats ok because it lasts for a long time.
I like the spicy green aroma I get from the fragrance. I think paco rabanne man is confident warm and spicy. I have had a lot of good comments about this when I wear it.
I have worn paco rabanne homme day or night and it has smelled as good each time. I think it can be a versatile aroma for a confident man to wear. I like the green aromatic aroma and I think it lasts very well on me because I can smell it for many hours.
I think the fragrance is very aromatic and I like the spicy feel it gives me. The flowery bits in the fragrance are good and the lavender in the fragrance mixes well with the herbs used in this. There is rosemary, thyme, tarragon and these work well with the lemon aroma I get when I smell this on my skin.
The fragrance gets softer over a few hours and the musk in it goes a bit smoother and leaves a kind os smokey aroma. I think this is a good fragrance that I can wear with ease and I would recommend it as it has a classic smell that is very after shave like and masculine.
There was a time when I wore all kinds of after shaves and fragrances and the tommy hilfiger one was always a cheap and easy buy. I have seen this so cheap now that I have had it for not much more than £12 a bottle. You can buy it in some well known shops for about that price and get a 30ml bottle which is the smallest one they do.
I think the bottle looks plain but easy to use with the tommy name running down it. The clear glass is good because I can see how much is left in the bottle. The lid is good and when its on the bottle it stays on well. I think the lid is easy to take off as well it doesn't get stuck on too firmly.
The box stands out and I think the white red and dark blue really shows this is a tomy hilfiger fragrance. I think the box looks crisp and clean and looks smart and masculine. I think it would be a good present for a youngster as it looks smart but modern.
The smell that you get from the tommy fragrance is a summer one that is light and I think it could be worn by a woman almost as much as a man. I think its very close to a unisex aroma but I still like it. The spearmint in this is good and I think it makes the fragrance a bit different to many others.
There is a strong citrus aroma in this and with the spearmint it makes a good fresh aroma and it can be worn well on a summer day or a warm evening and it makes you feel fresher. I think the fragrance is very casual and easy to wear for many people.
I do get a small spiced aroma in the fragrance sometimes but it goes quickly and the feeling doesn't last as much as the citrus and mint does. There is a bit of fruit in the fragrance as I can smell a cranberry or two in it and I like the addition of that but I don't think its a very fruity smell that lasts.
I would recommend the tommy fragrance for a youngster as an introduction to wearing fragrance that won't be too strong even if a lot is sprayed on. The crisp light smell is one that many people will like.
This one will be an easy starting point for younger guys and will suit them. The price is good as well and it is not an expensive fragrance to give as a present.
I have had a lot of the range of adidas fragrances many of them given to me as presents. I think some are better than others and this one adidas ice drive has a lot going for it that is good.
I had this for a while and it was a fragrance that smelled much better than you think. I liked the fresh summer feeling it gave me when I had it on and I think its one of the better adidas fragrances you can get.
The bottle is the same as most of the adidas mens range and has a clear glass bottle that has a budget look. The fragrance its a pale blue and I think that suits the name of the fragrance because it looks an icy colour in the bottle.
The lid is chunky but it stays on the bottle ok and the shape of the bottle works fine and stands up steady without being unstable. I think the bottle works ok. Its not fancy but it does the job.
I have only ever had this as a gift but I know you can pick it up around christmas for under a tenner. Very often the gift sets cost about that much and you get a shower gel and another product as well. I think thats very good.
I think this is a good sumer sports fragrance and I like the fresh light smell it gives me. This is great to put on after a shower and it sinks in good when your skin is freshly washed.
The grapefruit and lavender in this are good with the mandarin and lemon aroma I get from this. The thing is that they are mixed in with musk as well and this adds a lot more to the aromas I get from this.
The musk and patchouli go great with vanilla in the fragrance and the aroma stays on me for about 3 or 4 hours. I think thats very good for a cheap fragrance and I would recommend it for summer for wear by anyone who likes a sporty smelling light summer smell.
Body shop do a lot of stuff for blokes as well as women and I like a lot of the products they sell. I had the body shop white musk for men and liked it. I had a gift set given to me and it was very good, I would recommend it because it lasted a long time and smelled great.
The boxed set I had looked well put together and I thought it made a great present/ I think that for a christmas time present the set with the white musk mens fragrance in not only looks good it smells good too.
The price for the set is about £20 but I noticed the set is reduced now and I am hoping to get some because its down to £14 for everything. In the set I had there was a bottle of the fragrance and after shave balm and a body wash. I think this years set has the same stuff in it.
The bottle is easy to use and it stands up ok. I liked the dark lavender blue look the bottle I had came as . I think it gave a moody look to the bottle that was soft but masculine. My bottle of fragrance was 75mls and it lasted me a good few months and I think that was good.
Funny thing about this one is that it is a bit flowery but it has a good musky aroma that kind of rescues it from being a female aroma. I have smelled the womens version of this and they do have a similar aroma to them. I think the mans version is masculine enough to get away with a few flowers here and there.
The mens white musk on its own is almost as much as the gift set now but you do get a bigger bottle for that. I think its about 100mls. Lasting time is good as well and that is a good thing.
The aroma I get from the white musk fragrance has lavender in it and that gets soft but I think its bright and sharp when I first put this on.
The jasmine in the white musk is sweet and I get a real sweet smell after a few minutes of wearing this and the lavender gets lighter. I think its a good mix that works on me.
The musk used in the fragrance is good and I like how it is after about an hour on me. It mixes with the vanilla and lavender and smells great. I do like this and I think any bloke can wear it and get away with it and I would recommend it.
I think good cup of pg tea is part of the british mind set and when its colder we all end up sipping tea till it comes out of our ears. I have had pg tips a lot of times over the years and it has a very strong taste that stands out compared to other teas.
The pg tips tea bags are not the cheapest ones you can buy and they do cost more than a lot of other makes. The boxes they come in stand out a lot and the big green p and the red g are easy to spot when you need to look for the box amongst all the others.
The bigger boxes can be a lot of money to buy but if you like a strong cuppa then the tea you get will make you a good strong mug of tea. I have used one tea bag to make 2 cups of tea and it has been fine, a bit weaker but still strong enough and stronger than many other teas.
The flavour of the blend of teas in this is strong and I think you can tell it apart from other brands. I think you need to drink this tea blend with milk because it it not refined enough for milk free drinking.
I have had the pg pyramid tea bags and they work well. When they go into the freshly boiled hot water they let the tea leaves inside move about to give a stronger flavour and deeper colour. The bags are easy to pick up and use and easy to dispose of. The box makes a useful storage box as well.
A big pack of 240 teabags is on offer at asda for £3 and that is very cheap. They can be about £5 a box normally. I don't think £5 is cheap but at the offer price its good and worth getting. The flavour of the pg tea is strong and full flavoured and I would recommend it for tea drinkers who take milk in their tea.
I like milkshake but I didn't get on very well with the frijj milkshakes. I have tried the chocolate and the strawberry ones but I think they were both too thick and sludgy when I drank them.
The bottle that frijj comes in was what made me buy them. I think they look good and when I saw them they looked better than some of the other milkshakes like the yazoo ones that look a bit cheap. The presentation is good and the bottles are on the fridges at supermarkets because they need to stay cold.
The bottle used for frijj is chunky at the bottom and it was chunky to hold as well. The packs say the shake is thick and smooth. I think the shake is very smooth but I didn't get on with the very thick texture of it. It was thick even when it was cold but it was a bit like phlegm and got worse when it warmed up a bit.
I think the flavour was ok on the chocolate one I had it was very choclatey. The strawberry one was very fake and not like real strawberry but I didn't mind the flavour as much as the thickness.
Frijj do banana and brownie flavour as well. I haven't tried them because I only got 2 bottles on a 2 for £1.10 deal and then when I tried them they were too thick for me. That put me off buying more of them.
You get 500mls of the frijj milkshake in each bottle and that was more than enough for one person to drink.
The calories for the milkshake are high and are about 70 per 100mls. That makes it 350 calories for a full bottle. I think thats too high for a drink to have on a regular basis.
I don't think I would by this again because when I have drunk it I don't like the over thick way it is. It is best drunk cold and you need to keep it in the fridge or it gets even thicker and more difficult to swallow.
If you like taking snaps with a digital camera then at some point you will want more storage space for them than what came with your camera.
I had one of the scandisk ultra II cards. It was a 16gb class 2 sdhc card. I have had a lot of different cards with a range of storage sizes and speeds including one of these.
The 16gb storage space was useful and I think it was good because it could store more photos than several smaller cards could. When I used this I didn't have to take extra cards with me to store photos but it was not very good for video and I found out I should have had a faster 4 or 6 class card for that instead.
This card was good for going out and taking single photos but not for video. There is nothing worse than when you can see some good shots that you want to take quickly and don't want to miss out on but don't have any more space to store everything.
The card was ok for storing photos but this card is not great for rapid shots and worse for video. The write speed on the 16gb ultra II is a bit better than the class 2 description makes you think. The card has a top speed of 8 or 9 gb per second and that is better than the 2 speed minimum some class 2 cards have.
If you take lot of rapid fire photos then the card being class 2 will be a problem like it was for me and you will be better getting a faster card. I think this card ok for single shots but when I wanted to record video using the card it was a let down.
I got a bit confused between the card being high capacity and high speed when I got it and that was my mistake. The card is ok for some stuff but is a let down in the areas I mentioned here.
