Review of Black & Decker PS142Kb - 14.4V Autoselect Cordless Combi Drill by blissman70

Advantages: Easy to use, good weight, enough power if charge is good and hammer function works well
Disadvantages: Battery loosed power quickly

NEVER USE THEM!!!!
Review of Safestyle UK Windows by djfsof

Advantages: NONE
Disadvantages: RUDE- LIARS- INCONSIDERATE

This company well known to many, is portraying itself as a reputable and honest company. Believe me, they are rude and inconsiderate. When installing the windows, they decided to put some plastic over the broken plaster and covered it up. When it came to ... Read review

Hi there, since people are asking for information, I'd like to add a bit more detail about what happened. Essentially, the workers had covered over the broken plaster when they should have re plastered the part where it was breaking off. Instead they covered it over and kept quiet so when it came to putting the blinds back on, the plaster crumbled along with the shoddy piece of plastic they used to hide the defect. After calling many times, The company always stated the blame was on me and never held their hands up. After much time, they said they were going to send an engineer around to survey. This took well over a month and the room having had no blinds on was left bare for people to see into. After the so called "engineer" came around, he took one look, saw the broken plaster and straight away said it was my own fault. He then proceeded to call someone going outside, and I heard him say it was my own fault. After this I was outraged and after his voice was raised and he was not listening to us, we felt we were being blamed for something we did not do and he turned nasty. He even threatened to leave and not do anything just because I was frustrated at him not bothering to ask questions and to just place blame on myself. In reality, I urge people to stay away as if you going to spend thousands on new windows and doors, you should not go with a company who has cowboy builders and workers. Yes their may be some good reviews of them by some people, But in reality only the sales people are nice then when anything happened or goes wrong they are quick to blame the customer without any inquiry. by djfsof

Light Latex For Light DIY?
Review of Dekton Heavy Duty Working Gloves by Nar2

Advantages: Cheap cost price, versatile design, not too heavy, Latex rubberised palms.
Disadvantages: Availability, sizes, only one side has been rubberised, "XL" size incorrect, Latex worries.

I hate wearing gloves of any sort, so my gardening gloves are only worn for pruning the roses and last for about three seasons. I find latex gloves particularly unpleasant and sweaty to work in. A very good review here. R. by RICHADA

When you think what you'd pay for a decent quality conventional screw-driver, I think these are fantastic value. I am currently bereft as mine has gone missing! I need it and am going to have to purchase a replacement, naturally, as soon as I do, the original will turn up! R. by RICHADA

Sound very average to poor! by catsholiday
Well reviewed. It doesn't surprise me entirely that Challenge's product here is a bit low on expectation. In general most of their appliances are cheap fodder with "honest pricing." However, I find you get what you pay for sometimes with "Challenge," and the company brand name doesn't do themselves any favours. by Nar2

Review of Karndean Flooring by dybo28

Advantages: Looked good at first
Disadvantages: Guarantee not worth the paper it is written on.

I have Karndean in my kitchen. It was very expensive but I thought it would be worth it because of the 15 year guarantee. I really wish I hadn't bothered because after only 4 years some of the edges have started to lift. I contacted Karndean and they sent ... Read review

Ah, the water excuse is the oldest one in the book. You can go down the route of corporate miss-selling, duly on the 15 year product warranty, the reason why you opted for 'Karndean Flooring.' I'd be incline to put it to them that they have to prove it is water damage, otherwise a note to 'Trading Standards' will be sent. I hope it gets resolved. by 1st2thebar
I'm just wondering if it could be down to the way it was laid; I remember when we had ours fitted, it took about three days as they had to prepare the kitchen floor with various things and let them dry/seal before even starting on the Karndean layer. We certainly haven't had any trouble with ours so that's what made me wonder if it was down to the installation? by KateHurst
