5.0 out of 5 stars Great Dell refurbished laptop, 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've a Dell E6420 at work and it's a great laptop - was eyeing one to replace my personal 10 year old Packard Bell notebook, but they were pretty pricey. Found this refurbished one on Amazon, looked it up and took the plunge with 180 - it's superb. fast, reliable and sleek. But a Dell business laptop is all about quality whether it's new or not. Would thouroughly recommend one of these over a normal consumer job. It 180 it's a good price and you get a lot of laptop.


Prometheus 8'' Engineer Pressure Suit Series 1 Figure
Prometheus 8'' Engineer Pressure Suit Series 1 Figure

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - NECA gets even better!! Fantastic Detail & Quality, 12 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sculpt excellent, colouring great, good size, heavy weight and detail first class. NECA really pulled out the stops with this Prometheus line - together with the black chair suit variant. This pressure suit figure though has more detail and seems to be of a much sturdier plastic. Articulation is also plenty and spot on. There's nothing not to like.

However, would avoid the later series holographic variants - great sculpt, but blue clear plastic is poor quality specifically the joints - stick with this one instead

Good strong storyline from JNT era Doctor Who with perhaps the best incarnation of the cybermen from the classic series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not as good as the first 2 books, 3 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jupiter War is slower paced than both 'Departure' and 'Break Point' and the action is much less here than in the previous volumes. That said the build up is all right although it was almost boring in places, wheras the other 2 books are very fast paced with lots of action, blood and gore - both with very good plots. If you've read the other 2 installments, you'll be wanting to read this - it's good, but not as good as the others

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Sculpt and detailing, poor plastic in some areas, 23 Oct 2013
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off this is a great take in plastic of the Forerunner Commander from Halo 4. Sculpting is spot on - Mcfarlane put a lot of effort into getting the detail. The paint application is also to a high standard and the armour is outstanding.The alternate head is pretty hard to switch (again great detail)as neck joint is tight - but this is not a problem. The shoulder joints are also very tight and hold well.The real let down are the weak loose joints in the knees and elbows which make it difficult to hold any sort of pose. If this was a cheap piece, then ok, but at over 25 with p&p it's not,and does not represent 'value for money'.

That said it's great looking on your shelf or desktop if you're a Halo affectionado and even if you're not, it's still very impressive. Beware if you're buying it for kids though, cos whilst it looks tough, it's pretty fragile - in terms of overall quality, the H4 Elite Zealot or HR Brute Chieftain beat this hands down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sci Fi, 29 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Strong story line, lots of actions, bullets and blood, and pretty fast paced. I've never read any of Neal Asher's books before and read both this and " Zero Point" whilst on holiday. Both are excellent reads.Am looking forward to the next installment. Also tried 'the skinner' afterwards, but didn't enjoy that anywhere near as much and ended up not actually finishing it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Detail, Quality Diecast - Shame about the plastic, 14 May 2013
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I picked up a Sunstar H1005 model in Silver, the only differential being the colour (H1001 green, H1002 red). First off - if you're considering buying this for children - bits WILL break off / get broken - even if they're very careful! :))
The diecast shell is fantastic quality - really heavy and solid. Doors / bonnet, hinges also great. Paintwork is top class along with the body decals.
Next - Interior is really well detailed as well with full working steering wheel that operates the front wheels - nice touch. Spoked wire wheels are great (discs brakes on the back!) -amazing together with the engine block and transmission underneath. Detailing on this is really first class.

The downside with this is the plastic parts (door handles, wipers, mirrors etc) are extremely fragile and can be broken upon removal from box. The handles can come off just opening the doors. If you want to leave in the box fine, but if you want to remove it you may need some superglue etc handy, just in case. The plastic chassis is not bad, but could do with reinforcing. Overall, this is a quality model, but it's easy to see where Sunstar cut the costs, you could hunt around for a deal though and it's still much cheaper than the Autoart equivalent

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb - The Best Action Figure Ever!, 14 May 2013

NECA did a knock out job on this - detail, colour, articulation - great size too! The original 'space jockey' first seen in 'Alien' as he appears in 'Prometheus'. This piece is flawless. Just buy it!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Excrement! - Don't Waste your cash, 2 May 2013
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Poor quality diecast shell - bent very easily, chassis was cheap thin plastic along with everything else - again broken pretty easily. whole thing completely broken and binned after less than 24 hours.There are much better DB5 models out there - don't waste your money on this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surplus Cargo Pants, 8 Jan 2013
Great cargo pants. I'm normally a 32" or 34" waist depending on the cut. I ordered a 36" waist after reading other reviews of these.I'm glad I did as the cut is really comfortable and the leg length (31" / 32") is also fine if you're tall (up to 6'2"). Material is quality and pretty thick and you've got a drawstring as well as double stitching. Great all round for travelling, walking, hiking etc. Definitely recommend. Grindstore selling for 28.99 GBP at time of writing, which is also best price in UK. Urban camo goes with pretty much anything
