1.0 out of 5 stars Double the price in 18 months, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In the 18 months since February 2013 this product has more than doubled in price from £4.05 to £8.89. So it is now extremely poor value. How is this increase justified?

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a great piece of kit and didn't do what it said on the tin, 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It lasted four months before failing (audio breakup too intrusive to allow use of the phone). Not a recommended purchase

1.0 out of 5 stars One Small Backward Step for Man, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Visuals, music, commentary - this film is a comprehensive failure. Any comparison with Kubrick is laughable; it belongs more with the directors of Bill & Ben the Flowerpot Men and is not worth 99p let alone £11.99. An utter waste of money which will soon be on the way to the trash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Film making at its very best, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mrs Miniver [1942] [DVD] (DVD)
You would need a heart of stone not to be moved by this film, not to be dazzled by the beauty and grace of its star, Greer Garson, and not to salute the work of a master director at the peak of his abilities, William Wyler. It won six Academy Awards - best film, best director, best actress, best supporting actress, best screenplay and best cinematography. This film is truly a masterpiece.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dr Who v Gollum, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film might prove mildly entertaining for those whose normal viewing consists of shows like "Snog, Marry, Avoid". That is the general thrust of the subplot concerning the protagonists'WAGs. The rest of the time, watching David Tennant and Andy Serkis in the lead roles, it's impossible to stop wondering: "Why is Dr Who so interested in Gollum?". David Tennant did not vary his Dr Who persona for this role one bit, with lots of mad stary looks and constant over-acting.

On the whole, given Einstein's giant stature as a charismatic physicist & genius, responsible for the greatest intellectual achievements of the 20th Century, this film was at the very least a disappointment and at worst a misleading and insulting caricature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take no notice of the negative reviews, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is remarkably effective, meaning that it removes hard skin quickly and easily. Yes, if you apply enough force the roller will slow down and stop. But it is not necessary to press that hard; gentle contact is enough. Like all tools it has to be used properly and intelligently. Maybe that's the part which defies some people.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is no substitute for quality, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This monitor is a joy to use. It has just about every current form of connectivity, sophisticated image management and a wide range of physical adjustment. It is ideal for use with a Macbook Pro with Retina Display providing excellent image quality, a high level of comfort and stress-free working.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good phone for a joke price, 14 Mar 2014
This phone costs more than three times as much from this supplier than anywhere else, apparently because it comes with a cleaning cloth probably worth a few pounds. The phone is good, the price is outrageous

1.0 out of 5 stars It never worked, 12 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a piece of junk. It never worked. It wouldn't charge. It wouldn't switch on. So there was no opportunity to use it. It's landfill now. A total waste of money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but overpriced, 7 Mar 2014
Effective in relieving aches and pains whilst lying in the bath but this product is available at a significantly lower price including from a very well know high street chain which also has a web retailing operation. Overpriced from this supplier.
