3.0 out of 5 stars Reliability concern, 21 Jan. 2015
Great price for what it is, is about £200 cheaper then the canon version and pretty much does everything identical, it even has very decent build quality for the price, the rt function and idea is great when it works

Reliability issues - I had the first version of this flash in October and once it arrived everything seemed fine, its comparable to the canon 600ex-rt and even is a little brighter in ettl which is great as I find canon too dark usually, however my issues started when I turned the flash off and 5 minutes later heard it whining! Basically the flash doesn't turn off, I think it fails to discharge properly or just doesn't fully discharge, no big issue as I returned it. In early January I got a new one, production of this flash had stopped for a month probably for the reliability issue, the new one again worked great when on but again doesn't completely power down, the whining is almost gone but sometimes the flash ready light stays on, I've decided o keep this one however as when on it works fine so I just take the batteries out when I'm done, but I shouldn't have to.

Also it can be updated via firmware but need a 32 bit windows system for that and my windows 7 is 64bit.

I used it for a full wedding as my main flash and on hotshoe its perfect,the battery indicator it has is fairly accurate but not perfect, but in rt mode it kept losing connection, I think it or the trigger kept going to sleep, I will look into this, canon flash kept doing it too so may be a settings issue, I would probably wait a few months for these to get more reliable before buying

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Wifi range using ADSL, 13 Jan. 2015
I got this router to help connect my tv and xbox one / PS4 mainly, they are currently running on a netgear dg3700 or something which also has rave reviews online for signal strengh, setup is fairly easy but you need to do this via disc if you dont know how to go via your browser, the browser method is not in the manual but straightforward if you know how, passsword is admin / admin, this router is supposed to be smart but its auto detection thought I was in Australia, not the UK! anyways setups was still easy and all up and running on 5GHZ & 2.4GHZ

2.4GHZ slightly better then the netgear, negear says 65% signal strengh and 170 ping at 9MBS on my xbox one from 10M away through 2 walls, Asus says 70% and 155 ping at 9.3MBS, thats a meagre improvement from whats supposed to be the best N-GRADE router for ADSL & VDSL, ok ok so I got a small increase so why am I not happy,,,,, I plugged the talk talk super router in to compare and I could have thrown the Asus out the window, the talk talk router has 85% signal, 28 ping at max 11MBS (I have 11MB download speed) why am I paying so much for these high end routers when on my comparison they are rubbish, im an advanced user, I managed to get the ASUS at 75% signal strengh but it drops out every few minutes.

I did one final test, reset all 3 routers and turned them on, default settings and went to the furthest point in the house, netgear and asus have no 5GHZ range, both have 1 bar 2.4GHZ, the talk talk router has 3 bars at 2.4GHZ and 1 bar 5GHZ, Asus and Netgear will both be onsale used in great condition from tomorrow!

it gets 2 stars for being great if your in the same room as it and looking great although id like to wall mount but you cant :(

fiber going in tomorrow, will test them all one final time and update this if things improve, if not im going to sell them

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary with some brutal deaths, 7 Nov. 2014
Very resident evil esc, if you liked that, you will like this, my only frustration is the speed, its also a little slow like resident evil and im much more used to faster paced running games these days, its got some brutal deaths! if you fancy a scare then this is for you, Graphics are good but not groundbreaking, I would recommend this

5.0 out of 5 stars Wasnt expecting it to live up to hype but it beat my expectations, 7 Nov. 2014
Short and simple review - im about half way in this game, I wasnt sure to get it first as not really my thing but I am a LOTR fan so gave it a go, great graphics, soundtrack, story, was difficult for first hour or 2 getting used to controls and where to go but once overcome all is good,

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better then last years, more free online maps needed tho, 7 Nov. 2014
short and simple review - Seems really good to me, no lag or slowdown online or in framerate, much improved over ghosts, graphics are great in campaign they are sometimes breathtaking for a game, good single player, too many complaints about too much stuff thats not important on most reviews now due to some fanboyism craze, just be a gamer and enjoy, id give it 5 stars if they included more online maps but thats abit of a con in itself as they already know how many map packs etc,, they releasing

4.0 out of 5 stars Takes some getting used to but great after a while, 23 Oct. 2014

This review is from: FIFA 15 (Xbox One) (Video Game)
Keeping it short and simple - I Know many people dont like some of the changes but having got used to this game, some of the moves and player movements seem fluid and realistic, graphics are pretty much the same as last years, First purchased on PS4 which is always a mistake, exchanged for Xbox one version which runs much smother online and off

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good to be honest, may get better with updates but ive already given up, 23 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Driveclub (PS4) (Video Game)
Has got great graphics, I dont like the Handling as I thought it was going to be more realistic due to being track based and the cars, its not my cup of tea but tried online a few times,, it dont work. Also disapointed with the cars, doesnt seem to be enough variety or enough cars in general, I know more will be added but as a release game id say 200 should be minimum these days, I borrowed it off a friend whos trying to sell it to me! I dont think id buy it as the competition is better out there, promises made by Sony once again not kept

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor reliability but great future, 14 July 2014
This review is from: Sony PS4 Console (Black) (Console)
I have both a PS4 and Xbox one, the potential for this console is great, it is more power then the xbox one and is a little easier to get straight into a game, you can also add a faster hardrive as an option but I have not done this as dont use it enough.

Design - the console looks good but nothing special, I would say 3/5 for looks, it gets 1 less mark as I dont like the angles on it, I prefer a box shape, and also it has 2 USB on the front, the xbox one has them on the side, I prefer them on the side as I dont like bits sticking out the front of the console, things like wires for USB fans,

Reliability - maybe im not doing something right but im writing this review as ive now sent off for my second repair, considering I use my Xbox one more its a little frustrating, timing isnt too bad however as I am waiting for the last of us and it will be back by then but I feel the reason for the failures could be down to it all being squished into such a small case causing over heating, Also ive replaced the control pad, there was some slight wear on the analogue stick and the R2 button was sticky and wouldnt always work, all in all ive spent plenty of time waiting for replacements and repairs on this, ive been a playstation gamer since PS1 so im expecting better quality as none of my other consoles had any problems, before the fanboys complain about my complaint, reliabilty is a product issue and I shouldnt have to just live with it because its Sony, it is my money I spent on it.

PSN - PSN is becoming more like Xbox live which is a good thing, I find it reliable and steady, ofcourse im dissapointed as PS3 was free but then I understand the cost as Microsoft also charge, so all in all its a good service with good games.

Future - really the future and exclusives is all I have this for, its current lineup is fairly poor as it cant be judged on cross platform as those games are on all consoles, Infamous really is the only great game so far, Xbox one already has Forza, Dead Rising, Titanfall, Ryse (underatted)

I would have given it 2 stars, but because of its potential ive given it 3, if it gets a little more reliable ill update to 4 stars,
