Logitech Keyboard K120 - UK layout
Logitech Keyboard K120 - UK layout
Price: £11.12

4.0 out of 5 stars It does exactly what you need and it's liquid proof, they say, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with mice the keyboard is what you use when making your computer do useful stuff. A cheap keyboard will destroy your soul and make you life a misery, spending a bit more on a decent one is an absolute no brainer. I've got kids and despite what you ask/tell them they will eat and drink at the computer when you're not looking so the ability to shrug of liquids was a selling point. Other than that this keyboard doesn't wobble when you type the letter comes up on the screen reliably when you press the keys and it does it's duty in a quality unobtrusive way. Well worth the price. Why 4 and not 5 stars? I'd need to be extraordinarily impressed by a keyboard to give it 5 stars, let's be realistic here.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a black Logitech mouse, this won't be exciting, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you've been using a computer for any length of time you'll realise that the mouse and keyboard are what you use all day and if you buy decent quality then your life is just that tiny bit better every day, sad but true. This is a nicely weighted well screwed together mouse with smooth movement and a good scroll wheel. It is absolutely in no way annoying and you don't spend any time thinking about it which is right and proper. Why four stars and not five? If your life experience gives 5 stars to a mouse then.........


UFO - Volumes 1-4 Collector's Edition [1970] [DVD]

4.0 out of 5 stars Shado out of time, 23 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all Gerry Anderson productions there is a certain amount of fandom to your love of them. UFO (and Space 1999) was slightly different to the earlier SuperMarionation offerings in particular the peerless Thunderbirds as the mix between the models and the live actions scenes does give a disconnect sometimes. That said, the stories are much more adult occasionally covering subjects like racism and infidelity while battling aliens, there's also a hell of a lot of smoking and drinking. The series has held up well to the test of time and the casting and acting is well done and able to shoulder more weighty story lines. The transfer to DVD is very good with the program being offered in the original TV format rather than cropped to widescreen, it looks odd at first but your brain soon adapts. Playing it back on a modern player with HDMI cable and a good TV gives detail that I never saw the first time around.
The boxed set is really good value with hours of enjoyment and nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still fun after all these years, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly hats off to the people who had the courage to keep the original TV picture format and not crop to widescreen. Secondly, yes, as with all Gerry Anderson programs the music still sounds brilliant. I forgot how short the episodes were but my 5 year old is enthralled, it's still good. The dream sequence with the photo montage in the first episode is a master class in film making 'puppets getting angry' who'd have thought? Oh, just buy it, if your kids don't like it then tough you still will.

4.0 out of 5 stars Academic but accessible, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a little old now but still a benchmark book. I bought my own some years ago bit. I bought this copy as a gift for someone new to Ireland to give them some context to the political realities of the last 40 or so years and he spoke very highly of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works and I'm not taking the p***, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Took about 4 weeks to achieve the desired effect, extra sleep in the evening makes it worth every penny and the self esteem boost to the child (boy) involved was great to see. It is very sensitive and triggers quickly so the collateral damage is much less almost immediately. Fitting it into a pant liner is a bit fiddly but is the easiest way to ensure that the sensor stays in place. A really good buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Barely literate, 14 Mar. 2014

Was bought as a joke present but is actually so completely without value that there was no joke. Feels like it was written by a bunch of 17 year olds boys who never acquired basic grammar or spelling skills. A complete waste of trees.

I bought this so my daughter could buy books for her Kindle without tormenting me for credit card details all the time. Ideal for this purpose, she just applied it to her Kindle account like phone credit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice keyboard, trackball twitchy, 1 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nicely made keyboard with nice action, solidly made. The trackball is a bit hyperactive so requires a fine touch. The two usb sockets at the top are very handy for USB sticks or an external mouse if need be. I'm using it at the end of a long usb extension cable so single cable is very handy.
