4.0 out of 5 stars Ok...but the postage is a bitch, 8 May 2014
I really wanted this; I'd read the reviews and thought it'd be a sound purchase.

I was wrong.

The watch itself is excellent craftmanship; pity I don't like the colour blue. I demanded a refund but I realised Rolix wouldn't accept one for a product so cheap.

I'll stick with my good old Argos bestbuy digital watch thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain!, 8 May 2014
This will make a fine addition to my watch collection and banana slicer.

I may even buy one for both hands.

Who knows? At this price I'll get my kid one so he can learn to tell the time.

Bargain!

5.0 out of 5 stars Engagement Present, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my fiance as an engagement present/ring, as we both agreed a ring alone simply wouldn't cut it so bought this instead.

To many happy years of banana cutting...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent AC!, 22 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Air Conditioner Energy Class: A
I used this Air Conditioner during the stupidly hot summer we had in England recently (upwards of 34C). I can say whole heartedly that this product is superb. It would regularly bring my moderatly large single-glazed room (around 80sq) down to around 18-19C; even during the hottest days. Its flow is excellent and the fan-only function works 10x better than a standard rotary fan in itself. For those worried about energy use, this beauty barely ever goes over the KW barrier. C'mon...that's less than the average portable heater in winter!

All I would say is, if you're hot and have 170 quid to spend; buy this!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant TW...once you get used to it, 22 Sep 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm going to try and put people's minds at rest, because there seems to be a lot of fuss about nothing with the issues in this game. In fact, a lot of the negative response seems to be due to people simply not feeding the game enough specs which, i will admit, are somewhat high. This inevitably leads to glitches and lags, which may anger some.

Despite all the negative opinions surrounding a few of CA's decisions regarding this game, I think it is important to point out that there are only a few minor things which have truly been changed (which people have been moaning about):

1) You are now limited to a small number of armies and fleets (stacks). This is initially an annoyance, given the freedom of previous TW's, in which you had to build stacks to sometimes just defend one settlement. but trust me; the system used for these armies is more than a compensation for this. The addition of automatic garrisons also makes Micro-Managing towns less of a chore sometimes.

2) A lot of Veterans don't like the new Techno Tree. But c'mon; it's horizontal, not vertical. That's it. That's the big difference. Grow up.

3) I agree that the game shouldn't be so buggy upon release. But I've played a good 50 hours as 5 factions now with only a few glitches (which, I will add, have been fixed by CA since)

4) Capture the flag does not 'hinder' battle ai in the slightest...rarely are they in a field battle and in cities, they tend to force the AI into making better battle plans so I would say these are more an advantage than a hinderance.

5) There's been a lot of talk about the online multiplayer of the game being extremely stripped down and glitchy. I cannot comment much here, but will just say that my experience has been nothing but positive.

The campaign map takes getting used to, yes. But beyond that, there is an extremely playable game here. No doubt modders will build on this and improve it hugely; but for now, this is more than a triumph and CA should be proud of themselves. As an RTW veteran, I can honestly say this game lives up to expectations whilst not losing the feel of the original!

5.0 out of 5 stars No words to describe this camera, 25 Oct 2012
The 550D is by far the best camera I own...and I have a 7D.

Let's not discuss image quality as that is 90% of the time what you make it (unless you use auto settings in which case you can never expect to get anything truly remarkable from any camera save perhaps a 1DC or something).

Now let us discuss video.

I use this camera for broadcast regularly; the problem is people compare DSLR's to camcorders and HDcams. They are not. they are something far better; fully controllable beasts whos image quality far surpasses ANY type of HDcam. This is proven by the same type of technology (the sensor) now being used in 'proper' film cameras such as the Red and Alexa. The Magic Lantern firmware download available free online for this camera TRANSFORMS the software on this camera into a fully functional video machine which could give a digital ENG (news camera) a run for its money in terms of flexibilty.

As has been stated many times before on this page, the only people who dislike this camera are those who don't know how to use it correctly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shoot film? BUY THIS LENS!, 10 April 2012
I use this lens for many different occasions; nightclub shooting, night shooting, landscapes, costume dramas etc etc. As a cinematographer, I can appreciate something that works optically; and this lens most certainly does. The plastic 'hull' isn't as sturdy as some of it's more expensive siblings, but it's certainly worth every halfpenny of the 100 pound or so retail price! I use it as my primary lens when shooting; mainly due to the shallow DOF and aperture. the 1.2 and 1.4 are even more gorgeous; but at more than double the price for just .4 of an f/ stop. Highly recommendable and broadcast quality in the right hands!

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Mac - surprisingly powerful and the extra few inches worth every penny!, 21 Feb 2012
Don't be fooled into thinking the iMac is the cheap brother of the Mac pro and is thus worse. In many ways, in terms of both hardware and manufacture, the iMac trumps the Pro (which has not been updated in several years while the iMac has been) The pro is good if you wish to upgrade etc, but if you want raw power and versatile use in a single package, this is the machine for you. I use both Pro's and 24inch iMacs and can hand on heart say neither run anywhere near as smoothly- again, the Pro is more for those who wish to expand/want maximum compatibilty. This beast handles both Windows 7 and OSX incredibly with it's seemingly weak (on paper) i5 chip. I can run Chrysis 2 with almost full res and every single Adobe Master Collection application simultaniously with barely any performance lag. Yes, mine is upgraded to 12 gig of ram but even with the basic 4 gig you can get almost the same results and upgrading is a piece of cake (33 quid off amazon for 8gig!)

This or the 21.5inch? Psh! Easy! The Apple Cinema Screen of 30 inches is almost a grand retail. You get almost that for just 200 or so pounds more than the 21 inch. The 27 also has a better cooling system meaning the overall lifespan of the mac is improved; thus making it a better long term investment.

So i implore you. If you have a grand or so to spare and are not sure of the iMac, wonder no more. Gamer or Professional, this is the system for you.
