Please note that, while most of the products reviewed here were bought and paid for by me, I’m happy to accept relevant products from manufacturers and distributors for potential review. Drop me a line using the feedback form, letting me know what you have in mind and whether the product is a donation or whether it’s to be lent for a specified period of time to review. Note, however, that it’s probably a good idea to read my other reviews here first. I strive to be as honest and accurate as possible in my writing. These are critical reviews and not adverts.
