5.0 out of 5 stars Sony PlayStation 4 Hard Drive upgrade, 19 Nov 2013
++++++++++
UPDATE 28TH NOVEMBER 2013. Here is a link that gives instructions on the Official Sony UK PlayStation website to download and then initialise your PS4 after replacing the Hard Drive. Within these instructions is a link with the name 'DOWNLOAD NOW', this will download the system software update file (1.51), which you will need for your UK PlayStation 4 after replacing the hard drive (859MB - PS4UPDATE.PUP):

++++++++++

I am purchasing this Hard Drive to upgrade the 500GB that comes with the Sony PlayStation 4 console released on 29th November 2013 in the UK.

I phoned Sony PlayStation customer services yesterday to check whether this HD was compatible with the new PS4, and although they cannot as yet officially confirm that it is, they did tell me that all the product details fit the requirements of a PS4 replacement HD as indicated in the US PS4 Ultimate FAQ document, i.e.

SATA II
2.5 inch
5,400 RPM
9.5mm thick
Memory capacity higher than 160GB

[...]

One important thing to remember however is to make sure you have the 1.51 system software update file on a USB stick downloaded from the UK Sony PlayStation website, and NOT the US 1.51 system software file currently available on the US Sony PlayStation website. The UK 1.51 file is not currently available until 29th November 2013, once the UK PlayStation 4 console is released. The 1.51 system software update file will then be available on Official European Sony PlayStation websites.

Again, important NOT to download the US 1.51 system software file if you have a UK PlayStation.

Also remember after downloading the 1.51 system software update file (PS4UPDATE.PUP) to then place it in a folder named UPDATE and then place this folder inside a folder named PS4, (all uppercase) before you put it on your USB stick. Otherwise, your PS4 console will not recognize the file on the USB stick.

Here is an excellent and easy to follow guide on how to upgrade your PS4 HD to a 1TB SATA II HD:

Sony Wireless Stereo Headset (PS3)
Sony Wireless Stereo Headset (PS3)
Offered by Future Gaming UK
Price: £90.36

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant design, 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very impressed with this product. Quality design. Very comfortable ear pags made of good quality material. Easy to alter fitting of headset. Easy one press mute button. Very well positioned volume control, also good design of mic/volume balance slider.

But it's true virtue is it's 7.1 virtual surround sound. It genuinely works and you can locate sounds 360° around you which is very useful for locating sound sources of enemies etc. whilst playing all types of PS3 games. The sound quality is also crystal clear with good bass frequencies.

Rechargeable battery in headset will last for two very long gaming sessions before there is a need for recharging, i.e. starting early evening, and ending in the early hours of the morning for two nights.

Very easy setup too.

I have friends who have previously had Turtle Beach virtual surround sound headsets but they tell me the headsets don't last long and they have to purchase subsequent headsets after 1/2 years. Those who have purchased this Sony headset as a replacement have told me that in comparison the Sony product is far superior.

Perfect score for this product, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let there be light, 20 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a tube light, I plugged it in and it lit up. It makes light, because it's a tube light. I'm very pleased with the fact that it makes light because that is what I bought it for... to make light. I would have given this product a very poor review if it did not make light, but it does, so I'm giving the product a positive review with high praise due to the fact that it makes light. It's just that Amazon asked me to review this product and I wanted to tell everyone it's very bright and it makes light. In fact, God once said: "Let there be light", and this tube light certainly does just that. So in a way this tube light is doing the work of God. It's a holy tube light that makes bright light. What more could you ask for from a tube light? Highly recommended for people who want to purchase something that will bring brightness into their lives.

That's My Opinion, Period!
That's My Opinion, Period!
by Christopher Greco
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.65

1.0 out of 5 stars Where's the period?, 31 Oct 2012
Probably one of the most unintentionally ironic titles for a book ever.

'That's my opinion, period!' contains one apostrophe, one comma, and an exclamation mark; but no where can I see a period, (what people in the United Kingdom would call a full stop).

You could have called it: 'That's my opinion, exclamation mark!' and it would have made half sense. Though 'That's my opinion!' would be preferable. Even better, what about 'That's my opinion.' The latter would have been superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Verbatim DVD-R 100 pack, 7 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good product. Far superior to Verbatim DVD+R regarding compatibility. I previously purchased Verbatim DVD+R for use with my Panasonic DVD recorder and discovered it had limited use regarding copying TV programmes from HD to disc, (some just would not copy, and this was indicated in the Panasonic instruction manual when it noted DVD+R limited use). However, with this product I have bought here, i.e. DVD-R, it copies everything my Panasonic DVD Recorder records onto HD. DVD-R is far superior. Quick delivery, no problems.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fundamental problem with design, 12 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As several other people have noted on Amazon, the problem with this product is that the foam used inside the cushion is completely unsuitable for the purpose of giving orthopaedic support. It is too soft and completely flattens giving about 1cm of thickness at the rear. Just to note, I am relatively average in weight too, and it still flattens. This negates the purpose of what this cushion is supposed to do. The manufacturers are at fault and could easily remedy this by using firmer foam inside the casing of the cushion. As it stands, it is a classic example of bad design. How I remedied this was to go and purchase a 2" thick square dining room chair cushion that I place underneath this product to give it more height, the foam sponge in the dining room chair cushion is the type of firm sponge that should have been used in this product if it had been designed by a more competent manufacturer. Nice idea, poorly implemented.
