100 MARBLES - MOVIE
100 MARBLES - MOVIE

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my needs, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 100 MARBLES - MOVIE (Toy)
I needed marbles that weren't glass (Safety). These fit the bill. They are round (thankfully) and marble like. Naturally a little lighter than a glass marble.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sticks, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm struggling to get excited about sticks that you put in the ground to stop plants from falling over. These sticks do it reasonably well, but they are a little on the bendy side for some applications.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The spoons are good value, the only criticism here is that they are a little on the brittle side. However they perform the task of stirring a cup of tea well. Not ideal for thick yoghurts though, so if you are taking 500 cub scouts on camp you might want to consider something else (along with having your head examined).

Good value for money and the bands are well elastic bands, I can't get too excited but they do the job as well as any other rubber.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brought for wife, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
And she loves it. Best present I could have brought her. I benefit from not having to have the bedroom light on, or the rustling when turning pages.
Battery lasts about 6 weeks.

Good value for money, and always the right time. Sits comfortable on the wrist. The back light is good. Whats not to like.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not that fast, but reliable., 6 Nov. 2013

It's not the fastest of USB sticks. I'd place the speed about average. I will say that they are well made. I like the look and feel. Excellent value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last, stable internet, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having given up on my Home Hub 3 (rebooting it once a week) I got this to use with my Apple AirPort Express, not rebooted or thought about it since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required!, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wish apple included this with the Macbook because it is required. Whilst the built in wifi is great (it performs better than most other laptops in this area) however when copying large files (bluray renders from Final Cut Pro for instance) you need that extra bandwidth.
The down side is that I need to unplug one of my 27inch monitors to use it, if only there was a cheap thunderbolt hub.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best laptop I've owned, 6 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is by far the best I've owned and used (and working in IT for my adult life there have been a few pass by me).
The keyboard is good to use, not quite as perfect as the USB apple keyboard but being back lit makes up for it.
It's faster at rendering my Final Cut Pro projects than my 27' iMac (2011).
The screen... erm, just WOW and now that a lot of apps are taking advantage of it makes owning one make more sense.
Battery life whilst running Mavericks is impressive, typically I'm getting 6 to 8 hours.
Sadly dropping into windows drops this down to about 3 to 4 hours.
I just wish it had a third (or even a fourth) USB socket. I have to keep my USB 3 hub at hand.
