3.0 out of 5 stars average really, 19 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have owned a good few sets of these, because they do break within a year it seems. loss of sound in one earphone is a common problem. they do have good sound and is made better if you remove the gauze from the inside in my opinion. I used these for about 3 years or so and thought they were brilliant until i tried other earphones and realised how much these are lacking in bass. if your are not to picky about that then you will most likly like these. for the price they arnt bad i just think there are better earphones on the market and do prefer sonys (except the leads which seem prone to breaking). what happend to quality? i remember having earphones that lasted years.

really is better than i thought it would, i remember having a wheel on ps2 and it wasnt much fun fishtailing along roads hitting barriers constantly, this is really spot on especially with the forcefeedback which makes it what it is without it i dont think its all that. its amazing with forza and pgr (havnt got the hang of drifting yet though). didnt like it on dirt but that doesent bother me because it isnt a great game anyway, one thing bothers me which is a squeek coming from the motor inside when turning the wheel with any kind of pressure pressing downwards but im hoping thats just because its new and it will fix itself.i would definatly recomend it for forza alone and with forza 3 on the horizon i cant wait, it really does add a new dimension to racing games. i just hope the reliability is good because i have heard of some breaking and having faults but mines fine apart from that minor squeek.

4.0 out of 5 stars very pleased, 8 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very good laptop in my opinion seems really fast in operating and using multiple programmes, im not all that clued up on computing but this does everything i need it for very well i cant fault it at all. i wouldnt recomend it for gaming it will play alot but the graphics card isnt all that good.the only minor flaws i would say the speakers are abit tiny and quiet in my opinion, and the keys matte finish has began to wear off after only a couple of weeks but i do type alot. very pleased with it but i would adivse anybody looking into getting a laptop too consider what they want to do with it before buying. oh and the picture shown here is not the correct picture although it is very similar.

4.0 out of 5 stars its no cod 4, 24 Nov. 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
first off the single player campaign is well....pants. sure you can have some fun but the AI is just horrendous like people have mentioned on here the amount of times you see an enemy soldier stood face to face with one of your allies having a staring cometition is crazy. seemingly continuos respawning enemys that dont pose much of a challenge. i think by playing the game on the reguler setting i only got killed like 5 times by guns, probably about 50 times by grenades that give no onscreen warnings the grenades are really annoying the ones you throw look like they have the power of a water baloon, where as enemy grenades kill you from a mile away. The multiplayer is where its at you may be initially dissapointed with the range of guns but keep playing till you unlock better ones. i still dont feel this is better than cod 4 the map designs although mainly bigger dont have that good of a design or utilise the enviroment like cod4 does. also seem to get stuck on things quite alot like fences or rails etc, dogs too when used after a 7 kill streak seem to have kevlar fur and ghostly powers, you can shoot a dog point blank with a shotgun and it wont die, and they materialise through walls at times. artillery strikes are also poor compared to the air strikes from cod4. tanks are way to amoured they can take 2 bazooka hits and satchel charges and not be destroyed. but given these minor flaws it is good just not cod4 good. it will keep us going until cod5.

4.0 out of 5 stars the most destructive fun to be had on the next gen, 10 Sept. 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
this game has had somewhat mixed reviews. some complain about the graphics there actually quite good once you get past the tutorial which suffers from major screen tearing for some reason, there is screen tearing throughout though not as bad as some other games, also some pop up does occur, the AI on enemys isnt to clever but good enough except for on freindlys who always seem to be thick. anyway long story short this is not the most technically accomplished game available but its fun factor redeems it and lifts it high above the poor gta (my opinion). co op works well and is a welcome addition, this game will be amazingly fun to play once the inevitable codes are released that give infinite money and all supply drops, multiple tactical nuclear airstrikes? yes please.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent album, 15 July 2008
whether you like hip hop or just music in general ive yet to meet somebody who doesent appreciate kos (knowledge of self). has so much differing types of music its very refreshing to hear tracks vary in sound from reggae soul blues indie acoustic not that any track is particuly one genre it just has all influences within it isnt one genre, what kos does its just brilliant music wrapped in unoffensive hip hop form.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice sound nice guitar, 15 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
im probably not the best to write a review on a guitar because im only just starting. but i do know a good sound when i hear one and this definitly delivers one, i got the c40 to replace a cheap acoustic i had which was frankly killing my aspirations of learning how to play and i must admit i quite like the slightly smaller size of the classical guitar and the nylon strings. the finger board is alot easier to get around with it been stright instead of tappering. the whole guitar looks quality to be honest and feels it too. I must say i dont like the tuner you get with it and i already owned the same tuner and i dont know if its just that im an amateur but the tuner never registers the strings and notes correctly and you end up doing it by ear the dvd has a tuning section which is quite good for getting the basic tones. a bag wouldnt of gone a miss in the package would of preferd a bag to the tuner but what ya gonna do. so all in all im very pleased with it and alot of other people seem to love the c40.

5.0 out of 5 stars best films in the world ever., 24 Jun. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
did you know there are still some people who have never watched starwars? i know its weird! its like saying you what!? i need my heart to live!?. anyway i think everybody knows starwars so its hard to write a review but ill write a little somthing as if im speaking to somebody who has never heard of it.
first off these are the first 3 films or in nowdays the last 3 which i agree might seem confusing lol but it isnt really. these films were really based on luke skywalkers becoming a jedi but the story has so much its hard to put into words it has spiritualality , myth and legend, phycology philosphical ideas, love hate i suppose i should of just said emotion. the last 3 movies which are the first 3 movies....are about anaking skywalkers becoming a jedi and his ultimate downfall into evil. watch these ones first then all will be clear. so..a confusing review which didnt really review anything? or did it?....

= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
to rate this as 1 star because you havnt checked youre xbox has a hdmi output and obviously have no clue what a hdmi cable is , is ridiculous dont fault a product for youre own stupidity. I will say as others have only buy this if you want to have sound to an amp, as you can buy a lead for £5+ that does the same picturewise but only allows audio through youre tv.

4.0 out of 5 stars very pleased 4.5, 16 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Im gonna keep this short just mention a few things, the mp3 player is brilliant sound top knotch, lay out is great display etc. earphones are the best ive seen packaged with an mp3 player they normally give you rubbish ones these look like there worth about £30 on there own. works well with windows once you turn off auto sync first time i pluged it in it started trying to transfer everysingle bit of media on my computer to it which would of been a mess. but i think this was my fault as i didnt read the message that came up first. also the lack of a radio isnt good, for me anyway. and why do mp3 players not play more video formats?... overall i will say its brilliant and very small without being too small and the best mp3 ive had.
