5.0 out of 5 stars Ace, 20 May 2011
Having never worn a mouth guard before for any sport I have been wearing this for a couple of weeks playing ice hockey.

Super easy to fit just drop in boiling water, bite down on guard, drink a cup of cold water.

Some people said they needed to do this twice but has been a great fit first time for me.

Protection wise I have took a few hits to the head and it feels fine (apart from being hit in the head :D)

I can breath easy with no airway restriction and they stay in tight even if you occasionally open your mouth.

Overall great and cheap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome For Joggers, 23 July 2010
I'll keep this short, buy this if you run a lot.
The standard headphones are O.K. but its worth buying a decent pair separately.
Sound quality with good headphones is brilliant, battery life is great, it weighs nothing and whilst running its the easiest device i've had to change tracks.

Perfect

4.0 out of 5 stars Whats all the Fuss About?, 18 Jun. 2009
First of all the visual aspect of both the keyboard and the mouse is very impressive. This is not the be all and end all but it's nice to have a product which looks the part!

Keys are responsive, battery life is good and the mouse is accurate for all uses I have come across. I am not a serious gamer but I am a serious developer regularly using many development IDE's and visual packages such as photoshop and flash never having any "accuracy" problems. And yes touch typing is pretty much a MUST HAVE to use this keyboard fast and effectively.

This said if you are moderately well versed with all the above this keyboard is immensely comfortable and pleasing to use so why all the fuss from other reviewers?

Oh yes left handers KEEP AWAY the mouse is right handed only.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, Quiet & Reliable, 15 Sept. 2008
The 160gb Samsung Spinpoint cannot be beaten at this price it is a steal! The mighty 1TB drive may be coming into the spotlight very soon but realistically unless your running a high end machine can your computer benefit from the amount of space let alone use it? With the standard windows operating system requiring 35gb to function correctly this drive is a cheap replacement for your perhaps currently outdated desktop hard drive.
Saying this, I have used the drive as the master for a custom built machine to simply house windows and my programs whilst having a second drive (samsung spinpoint 320gb) to hold all my data and information.
The drive is completely silent from the use i have had out of it thus far and would recommend this to anybody in need of more memory at a very very very low price.

4.0 out of 5 stars building the foundations, 8 Dec. 2007
After swiftly reading the first book in the series i quickly ordered my copy from amazon of 'the Great Hunt'. I have read alot of the reviews on this page maintaining that the plot is slow. I never once doubted the pace of the book, it kept me wanting to read more every time i put it down. You get a real sense that Jordan is 'building..' a rich story line which is the foundation for later installments. This was a great follow up to the first book and builds on even better books to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars hooked me, 5 Dec. 2007
After being told by a friend that i 'must' read this series i set about the first book hopeful that it would bring something fresh to the saturated fantasy market. Upon starting the book i was disappointed yet i am not sure why. I am a huge fan of Tolkein's work and just couldnt let the commonalities between the styles of writing and plot settle with me. I put the book down thinking i would leave it a while and perhaps try again, but something had hooked me from within the first 100 pages that i could not quite grasp (and still dont). Jordans style of writing lends itself to the 'easy-going' fantasy novelist and is a thrilling start to and even more thrilling series.
