      Advantages

      If its from Tefal, its guaranteed to be of prestine quality!

      This is actually our third Tefal steamer in four years, and we have always been a huge fan of Tefal products. The first one that I bought burned out (out of negligence on our part), our second I have given to my nanny and the third one I bought on line to relieve the one I gave away.

      We have come to admire this product even more because it only takes a small space in my kitchen because of its compact design. The three tier design makes it convenient for us for we can always have a variety of steamed dishes in just one cooking. The loose base makes it easy to clean. And the "keep warm" function that then keeps the food warm when the cooking time is over is a good feature. We use it as often as we can, especially during vegetables nights ( our way in eating healthy - no oil, no meat). However, when steaming vegetables, don't let it stay in the keep warm function for it will surely overcook them.

      For all instructions about this simple machine, it comes with a manual which is very easy to follow. One thing I have been doing to safe it, I store it away if not in use. I also let it dry before putting it in storage.

      The price of this product is, in my opinion, a bit high for steamers but hey, its from Tefal so the price is affordable. Tefal has given us good products to date and if this outlast my old one then I think it will still be on top of my list of highly recommended products!

      Riding will only be enjoyable if your daughter is using this product

      As always, this brand has plushed all their dints and energy on giving the consumers the reassurance that their products will give them unwarranted and unbeatable value! With its mixture of british heritage and great performance, this bike really is better compared with other brands!

      We had this bike for almost a month and a half now, for my daughter received it as her birthday present from her aunt. It still looks good and no defects on the body of the bike itself. She used it every weekend when she go to her friend's house a block away from our house. I have been reluctant at first to have her use it for I thought about accidents and the sort. But seeing her on the bike and seeing how sturdy the bike is, and how balanced it is, I know that I can rely to her to be safe and I rely on the bike for its good quality which will definitely be an advantage.

      What my daughter loved about this bike is the doll seat at the back. She would put her doll on it and just rode in circles at our backyard, much to the delight of my second daughter. Once, my wife and I caught her trying to place her younger sister on the doll seat! Good thing we spotted it on time. We scolded her and made her understand the danger in that action. She learned a lesson from that!

      This bike's height is just right for my 6 year old daughter. The body is sturdy and the tyres used was just right. The design itself is stylish and unique. The saddle is well padded for extra comfort. It has brakes made of purple alloy and sturdy stabilizers. The rims are also made of alloy. It has steel chain guard for added protection. In as much as safety is concern, I have nothing to complain about. So I can vouch that this product had met my standards when it come to quality and durability.

      As for the price, it is being offered at £80.99 which I think is very reasonable. I have compared it to other brands and I have not found any good reason why this bike is lousy. It is, I think superior in many ways. I have trusted this bike to be the one who transports my daughter because I have reason to believe that it is a well oiled contraption.

      I was glad that she received that bike. I neighbor next door also bought the same bike, with the same color, for they really liked what they saw. Right now, they roam the neighborhood, the three of them, using Dawes Princess bikes. I plan to buy the same brand when my second child turns 5.

      I really would recommend this bike to young girls out there. This will definitely rate five stars for it is creditably good and exceeded my expectations in terms of safety and durability.

      A sure way for your daughters out there to enjoy is to have this bike!

        Seeing my daughters happy playing with toys they truly like makes my heart smile!

        I am not that fond with toys for I grew up having nothing but a simple wooden horse carved by my father. But I really loved that toy and still have it as a matter of fact. I asked my daughter feedbacks about this product just a while ago and she is loving it. From my point of view, this product is nice and serves its purpose. We bought this for because my two daughters can play with it. My second child is now learning how to walk and she is so fond of pushing this tram around.

        Surely the size was small enough for her to push around but also sturdier than other prams/buggies on the market so it is ideal for her while she was learning to walk.

        Safe and Durable. I can see that it is very safe to play with having no pointed objects on itself and the tram is very sturdy. There are no loose joints and the fittings are quite right.

        I have made my two daughters very very happy for just only 9 pounds! Very Affordable! If you will buy it with the doll, it will cost £24.00. Still Affordable!

          Using this will give you peace of mind when travelling with a baby!

          I can really vouch for this product. We have used it for our second daughter. Our first baby car seat which was used by my first daughter was donated so we have to buy a new one. And we choose this product among many others and I think the choice was right.

          Well, for me, this is a great baby car seat. for starters, it has a soft ergonomic carrying handle so transferring the baby car seat is easy, and it does not blister your hand when you carry it around for long periods of time. It was printed in the brochure that it is only suitable for 12 to 15 month old babies but we used it earlier than that and it did not cause anything wrong to my child. Another feature which I think made this superior to other brands is that it has a correct position indicator, which tells you that the seat has been fitted at the correct angle. So adjustments on the baby car seat will not be an assumption only.
          And added safety to the child or baby, there are side impart protection cushions on both side so the head is always well protected. Price if this product (Almost 50 pounds) is just right for the benifits you will get from it.

          All in all,this product gives out style, ease and protection when used in the car or when out and or just for strolling. A sure five stars for me! Very highly recommended!

            Size does not matter for as long as it delivers!

            When I bought this 3 months ago, I was only attracted to its color for it complimented our room. My wall is painted white while our bed is dark grey. But surely, I made the right choice. It still works as if its still new!

            My review:

            I rate this product five stars. Why, even though it is small in size, it emits good quality sound. Even if you put the volume to its maximum (30), you will not notice any distortion the sound. Also, it did not take so much space on my bedside drawer and the LCD screen is very clear. Control panel is user-friendly. Although some brands have USB ports or headphones jacks, this product does not need it for the purpose is not that valuable. Some would argue that other brands has many features. Why complicate things when you can have this simple product which is very efficient and affordable.

            All in all, I find this product of good quality and will be highly recommended by me to my friends. It is so simple but I think it really serve its purpose, to give fine radio sounds and waking you up in the morning!

            So for the price of only 50 pounds, it is a good deal!

            Surely elegant watch for a modest price!

            I was looking for a gift online for my wife last weekend and I was choosing between a book or a watch so I browse and browse until this caught my eye... DKNY Women's Watch NY4624. Honestly, I am not fond of wrist watches, now that you will be able to see time in the screen of your cellphone which is a lot more easier. But this watch really caught my interest, not that it really has great features, but it sure looks so elegant. So, I bought it and hid it in the cupboard.

            I have not a chance to wear it (It's for women, remember?) but I cannot see anything bad about the product. My wife already has another DKNY watch (DKNY Stainless Steel Silver Dial Women's Watch NY4967) and it still works until now. That she received as a christmas gift from my sister-in-law.

            My review: if you want to go for sophisticated and modern, well,buy this chic DKNY watch. Women can wear the watch all day long and in any day of the week and only for 56 pounds! Battery life is long, the two-hand analog quartz movement is of tip-top quality, band and bezel materials used are of stainless steel and also, it is water resistant for up to 30 meters.

            Well, I think I made a good buy. I would recommend this to anyone!

              Plays all of my discs and blu-rays without pausing or freezing.

              I happen to have bought this Blu ray CD player by chance. I was browsing the net looking for a good price for a disk player when I saw this product. The sad thing at first (and it was because I am not techie) was that I bought it without knowing any of its features. The only thing that attracted me at first glance was the price. Well, I did get a magnificent product!

              I have my Samsung TV so connecting this player was not that complicated. The funny part was I spent more time unpacking the player out of the box than I did in setting it up. I just plugged every cable and attachments inside the box to the player and to my TV set.

              It is fantastic. It has many features that enhanced the picture quality of standard DVDs.
              Two thumbs up for this product! Samsung deserves a commendation for giving us consumers a quality and efficient player! Kudos!!!

                A speaker system you can brag about!

                I am always in a look out for a better deal when it comes to audio systems. I have come across many type and varieties and tested most of it. The best thing yet for me this Samsung Samsung DA-E670 Speaker System. I own a a Samsung S2 Galaxy phone which is compatible to this system so I can utilize it for my music listening. This speaker system has unique, sophisticated design that I tend to show off to my friends. And when speaking of performance, it more than what I have expected from a gadget.

                I also happen to own a PowerBook where I store and browse my iTunes library, so I tried out the system with AirPlay. However, before my PowerBook could find the DA-E670, I have to incorporate it in order to be part of my home network. That means an Ethernet connection is a must from the system to the router so that the Samsung's info could be incorporated into the network. This procedure I have done only once, so after it was done, I disconnect the Ethernet cable. I can now stream my music list list with ease using AirPlay.

                As for sound quality, I can find no frets or fusses. The rear-firing sub-woofer is making wonders. As we all know, listening to orchestra music and other types of music that don't project bodacious bass the outcome still just sounded right. The sub-woofer guilefully fill in the lower register giving those tracks a proper fullness.

                Many of us were made to believe that speaker systems are not that important. Well, for me, it is. To enjoy and understand any kind of music to its fullness, we must see to it that we are hearing it right and even to the most and tiniest detail of the instruments used. Just like in an orchestral music, every bit of instrument compliment each other to create a great symphony. It is so with speaker systems. Producing the sounds in a more clear and quality-wise perspective is a must.

                As for the pricing, although it may somehow exceed other brands, it is still worth it. The quality of the sound and the overall performance of the product will certainly make you realize that you made the right choice and that you have purchased something really worth purchasing.

                By the way, The audio dock allows audio input from the following sources:

                1. TV (a newer-model Samsung TV is required with up-to-date firmware)
                2. Bluetooth
                3. USB
                4. Docked devices
                5. Samsung's AllShare
                6. Apple's AirPlay
                7. Aux in

                So if it so happen that you either have one of those, it will be compatible with this speaker system.

                As of the time of this writing, I have not come across any issue s with the product. The only thing at first I found had was connecting to its wireless networks but after that, all was a breeze.

                Recommending this product is a must and you will not regret buying it. I am proud to own such a great speaker system!

                Samsung products are really dependable!

                I only bought this product a month ago because of its color. I haven't have the slightest idea that it can make wonders for me and my family! This Samsung product freestanding combination microwave has 21 automatic cooking programs, and I can create my own cooking programs and there are these sensors which weigh your food for you so you don't have to.

                My daughter, who is a pizza lover and enthusiast together with my wife, heats her food before eating it. This microwave really performs as advertised. My wife always make food preparations in the morning and place it inside the fridge for she get to go home sometimes late in the evening (she is a nurse by the way). My daughter and I who seldom eat out would just open the fridge and pick up anything that is edible when we get home but now that we have this microwave, I can eat lasagna, a variety of sandwiches and many others. Just heat it up and presto... a hearty and hot meal!

                To recommend it is not a waste of words!

                  My favorite in all the whiskey in the market!

                  The strongest odors coming through the whisky is vanilla, cherry, oak, some alcohol, and hints of smoke. When I nosed it got oak, cherries and icing sugar, like off a cinnamon roll.

                  I was at first disappointed but when I tasted it... Jack Daniels have made again a superb whiskey. My mini bar has all the Jack Daniel products (Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey,Jack Daniels Black Label, Jack Daniels Single Barrel) and I am proud to have them. The sad thing most of my friends experience when they visit me is that I don,t serve them my prized collection of Jack Daniels! But they love watching my collection.

                  Two years ago, I have three bottles of every Jack Daniel label but now, I only have one each. I am not alcoholic but I love the taste of whiskey.... especially after eating a hearty meal! Some preferred wine but I love to drink Jack Daniels, just a shot or two, after dinner.

                  I recommend this product to all who are qualified to drink already!

                    A must have oven for anyone! It is user-friendly!

                      Disadvantages

                      Time is not wasted, only saved, when using this printer.

                      I am busy person and to have and own an eefective printer is a must. That is why I have confident in buying products produced by Epson. I have been using the older version of Epson printers and now that they are having this new one, I bought it instantly. I really have high regards to this product.

                      The Epson Expression XP-405 has a beautifully crafted lid to its scanner, which also has a accessible lip at the front to open it with. Paper loads into a near vertical tray at the rear, as a common and traditional Epson style, and dispenses to a slide-out output tray with a flip-over paper stop at the front. There's no separate photo tray, but you can feed photo paper via the main tray.

                      One amazing thing about this printer is that the control panel folds up to around 45 degrees and contains a 63 millimeter LCD screen, which is also coupled to a touch panel with eleven buttons for menu navigation and to start and stop scan, copy and photo print tasks. To the left of the control panel is a single slot for SD and Memory Stick cards, but there's no front panel for USB or PictBridge socket.

                      At the back is a single USB port, but as we all know, the majority of purchasers will use wireless connection, because of the greater versatility this offers. The main purpose of the wireless link is to enable direct print from mobile devices, including AirPrint support for iOS phones and tablets, such as the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, several Android utilities and remote Internet print via Epson Connect.

                      When we speak of quality and durability, I think nothing compares to this product. I have used it in my company and at home for several years now and so far I have not met any fret or fuss which affected my operations. Files we printed daily amounts to several hundreds and this printer has delivered.

                      I think that this printer, scanner and copier, a multi-purpose device offers cost-effective printing for home users who are looking for the added benefit of Wi-Fi connectivity and mobile printing. The Epson Expression Home XP-405 comes with Epson Connect, allowing users to print documents and photos wirelessly.Also, users can print from anywhere in the world by emailing documents and photos directly to the printer. So with features such as these, you cannot ask for anything less.

                      Printing results very acceptable although a little slow on colored copies but it is expected, just like in any other brands. By the way, this printer comes with a set of start up cartridges with a limited supply of ink, therefore when buying include an extra full set.

                      All in all, I would recommend this because of only one reason... it is as it was advertised! All the features are working as promised and everything fits perfectly for the job description. I can vouch that this product will be of great help to your copying needs. Conserve your energy and try this product!

                        Advantages

                        • Reliability

                        Disadvantages

                        Cheap on the price but very good in terms of performance.

                        I just bought this few days ago and all I can say is that I am very SATISFIED! I have tried two other brands but sadly those items did not work from any sort of distance. I was a little apprehensive at first about buying it, well, considering the price, but so far it is working out just as it was advertisedl. I especially like the fact that the charger also charges the ipod, which was something I wasn't expecting. This innovative little gadget can save you a lot of money by playing an iPod through the car radio simply by plugging it into both iPod and cigar lighter socket.

                        PROS:
                        -Also charges I-Touch
                        -great value for money
                        -good charger
                        -excellent signal grabber

                        CONS:
                        -It is still new to me and no feedbacks in this area

                        All in all, I am really satisfied on this product. I will surely recommend it to most of my friend!

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        An effective and a cheap way to combat Hayfever and its symptoms!

                        I have suffered hayfever in the last couple of years, but luckily enough,I have not encountered any other allergies. My usual symptoms for hayfever are - itchy/watery eyes, runny nose, headaches and sneezes. and these symptoms can be very irritating and troublesome - and I have tried many other brand but somehow, I am not satisfied.

                        I have tried this product just a few months ago and frankly, I only tried it because I find the other brands too expensive. I personally find the price of hayfever and allergy tablets on the expensive side, and when they come in packs of 7 or 14 and you need to take a tablet a day, the cost will be big without you knowing it. This is why I tried Tesco's own version, as it was the cheapest option available at the time. These also come in packs of 7 and 14, I always opt for the larger packs as they provide better value for money.

                        These tablets are really making wonders for my hayfever symptoms. It works after just an hour and my itchy eyes and runny nose disappeared immediately. My headaches also vanished and I haven't felt any side-effects either.

                        I am writing this review for everyone to know that this medicine did work for me and I hope that it will do the same to you!

                        Disadvantages

                        A good choice for big families

                        I would really recommend this product!

                        Samsung RSH7UNBP, with its 535 litre capacity, can hold enough food to feed the hunger of most largest families. I happen to shop for food and I thought at first it will not fit but lo and behold... it did! And the amazing thing is I will be saving a lot of time and energy cleaning it, thanks this appliance which is completely frost free which means I defrosting will not be a nuisance.

                        With its storage capacity which offers storage space across 4 shelves and 2 drawers, I can put in kilos of meat and fish and still there will be enough space for crushed ice and many other frozen goods. There are also 2 in-door caddies where you can store foods you use on a day to day basis.

                        It really is a lovely item, though I really thought the first time I laid my eyes on it it would look very much bigger in my medium sized kitchen; but I was very surprised when actually fitted. And the color complimented my oak tiled floor. It only took my plumber about thirty minutes to install its plumbing. There was a bit of noise when first switched on, but it was only for a few minutes. Overall an excellent product.

                        Buy it now while it is still in the market!
