Eternity Aftershave - 100 ml

Price: £19.95

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading photo, 26 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this as a present. When they opened it is not eau de perfume but splash on aftershave.
Although the title says aftershave picture shows spray cap and eau de perfume box, very misleading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Speed is very good and does not drop around the house, 26 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a replacement for my home hub 5, now that I had infinity2+ from BT. Plugged it in and the router asked for the BT logon, which I should have googled before changing my internet, although you only need the user, password is blank.
Speed is very good and does not drop around the house. Disappointed with the range as I have found that it does not reach as far as my home hub did and my son had to move his PS4 closer to the router to get it to connect.
Netgear label the antenna with bright yellow stickers so that you place them in the right connectors, these stickers look awful and do not come off very easy, leaving the adhesive and white paper behind.
I cannot recommend this modem router for the money

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was fed up with the cleaners in my office keep knocking my laptop cables down the back of my desk.

Works well for ethernet cable, power cable and USB keyboard and mouse. The clips are a little bit small for the VGA cable, which puts a stain on the adhesive. No more threading cables from under my desk.

Adhesive on clips works well and none have fallen off after a week of use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I wanted, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was exactly the item I needed. Quality is good and great value arrived quickly.
The biggest problem was getting the broken one out before using it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a patch on COD, 1 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have only really played the online multiplayer. No desctructive environment, no vehicles, can't seem to find a way to choose matches. Graphics OK but nothing special. I just find the whole game unintuitive, upgrading seems random and uncertain what changes what.

At best an OK game, at worst £40 I could have saved for COD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Laptop Bag, 30 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I never write reviews but this is a great bag and really good value.
Four main pockets, one full A4 zipped, one with two way divider ideal for files, one for laptop and a pocket big enough to hold ipad as well and finally a front pocket with room for business cards, pens, CD's and blackberry.
Great looking bag and shoulder strap has a mobile phone case attached too, although I won't use it.
Would recommend to anyone who wants a decent size bag to carry laptop and work around with them. Only thing that would have made it perfect is a sleave that attached it to the handle of my wheeled back, but you cannot have everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made and easy to put together, 5 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great hutch and enables my rabbit to have loads of exercise during the week when I cannot let him in his run as I am out at work. Locks have been updated from those in the photograph but I did supplement them to be extra careful as our foxes can be very crafty.
The hutch comes flat packed and just needs a screw driver to assemble. Two person assembly which took just under an hour. Once assembled the hutch is not that mobile and so should be built near to your intended position.

This seller was selling this hutch cheaper than I have seen it anywhere else. It comes in three big boxes so I was grateful to have it delivered as I would not have had room in my car for it if I had purchased from local pet store.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray Features, 20 Oct. 2008
The 2.35:1 widescreen format serves this film well. In keeping with the recent trend moving away from vivid, stylized images of comic-book superheroes, Iron Man offers a more natural world back grounded by sandy browns, cool blues and neutral greys. It makes for a nice contrast against the brilliant red and gold of the Iron Man suit, once he appears in his familiar incarnation. The good news is that the colours and textures really pop on this disc. The problem with the picture, and it's not a small one, is the consistently high level of noise. While some noise is expected on a 35mm transfer like this, the level here is excessive (and evident when viewed in both DLP and LCD). When compared with recent reference quality discs such as Transformers, the difference in clarity is palpable. At least the digitally created CGI action sequences are free of the fuzz, for the most part. Still, it's a bit of a disappointment for such a highly anticipated release.

Presented in 5.1 Dolby TrueHD, this film makes up in audio quality what it lacks in the picture. During the air battles and flying scenes especially, the force of the subwoofer combined with the action in the surrounding channels brings the viewer into the suit with Tony Stark. The mix is well balanced, so that the dialogue is never lost among the explosions and swelling musical cues. In a more subtle fashion, the scenes with Tony in his workshop are filled with all sorts of interesting little mechanical sound effects that can truly be appreciated in a home-theatre environment.

This two-disc set comes inside a cardboard sleeve with all the technical details and a nice, shiny image of the titular hero on the front. Inside, the blue case is adorned with a simple, shadowy picture of Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, complete with glowing chest piece. Those who purchase the disc would be well advised to hold on to the cardboard sleeve rather than disposing of it because the information on the outside is not repeated within.

As for the extras, this release includes all of the bonus material available on the SD version, with a couple of exclusives thrown in for good measure. There are a lot of goodies to dig into here, including:

Hall of Armour, The Invincible Iron Man, Deleted/Extended Scenes, The Story Sparks, BD Live, I Am Iron Man: Making-Of Documentary, Wired: The Visual Effects of Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. Screen Test, The Actor's Process, Still Galleries.

Almost all of the features carried over from the SD version are presented here in HD.

One of the hidden gems here (it's not listed on the package) is a comedic newscast provided by The Onion under the headline, "Wildly" Popular Iron Man Trailer to be Adapted into Full-Length Film. This short and funny piece features a news anchor and an entertainment reporter discussing the "controversial" decision to expand the 90-second Iron Man trailer into a feature film. It satirizes the hype that always surrounds films based on well-known properties and the uproar of fans who are perhaps a little too attached to the source material (the hosts worry that the film will "alienate the trailer's core fan base"). Good stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic if you can get over the lack of story, 14 Oct. 2008
While the film's story misses the mark, its visuals prove that Spielberg hasn't lost his touch as a director. Visually, the Blu-ray transfer remains consistently high-quality - vibrant colours, strong detail, little additional grain or distortion. There is a small amount of noticeable digitization, and while the detail never gets quite a sharp as one might like, the CG sequences - such as the jungle and waterfall scenes, or any moment in the last fifteen minutes - come across the best. They're well-integrated into the image, clear and crisp without being overly so.

The Dolby TruHD track is a high-volume, larger-than-life experience. The complex, layered sound design of this film is an ideal showcase for this kind of technology. With sound effects provided by audio wizard Ben Burtt and that familiar, soaring score by John Williams, you want to hear every single element with clarity, and you do. There's a lot of movement in the field from all sides, so gunshots seem to zoom right past you and explosions erupt from all around. The essential car chases and fights are lively, but not too crowded. The dialogue is clear throughout the action and if the standard-def transfer was near-perfect, this transfer is downright perfection.

This Blu-ray release offers the same set of extras provided on the two-disc standard-def version, though each of the carry-overs are presented here in HD.

If there's one word to describe this collection of features it would be thorough. Every step of the filmmaking process has been documented, from the origin of the idea to post production, with a plethora of interviews and footage to illustrate the journey. Although Spielberg remains a staunch holdout among directors who refuse to participate in audio commentary, it's hard to imagine that it would give any further insight beyond what is already provided in the supplemental material.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull may not have lived up to the hype, but it was clearly a labour of love for all involved, and this release shows all the work that went into making it. It's just too bad the same amount of work didn't go into the writing.
