1.0 out of 5 stars Awful!, 11 Oct 2014
This review is from: Remains (Amazon Instant Video)
It's rare I stop watching a film part way through but wow, this movie was just so awful I had to give up. Poor acting, poor effects and poor plot. Right from the beginning it just wreaks of poor quality and when the zombies show up it doesn't get any better.

Save yourself the time and find something worthwhile watching!

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy portable battery with great performance, 4 Oct 2014
This is a great portable battery, offering plenty of backup charge. There's plenty of juice for all of your gadgets and the two USB ports really help this battery to stand out a little from the competition, offering the ability to charge multiple gadgets on the go.

I used this with my iPad and iPhone and had no issues at all charging either. The charge times were fantastic, offering a very speedy recharge time.

There's a handy wave like LED battery indicator that shows off how much charge is left in the battery, helping to prevent you from getting caught out. The micro USB port for charging the battery is a welcome addition meaning that you won't need to seek out different cables.

Now for a bit of an odd feature that I never expected to find on a portable battery is the torch. It's not on the top of my 'must have' features, but I must admit it comes in handy for those odd occasions and it is a very bright torch.

The device itself is relatively light weight and feels nice to hold. It has a matte finish, helping to prevent finger prints and also stopping it from sliding out of your grip.

All in all this is a fantastic portable battery. The two USB ports and the torch help it to stand out and when combined with the large capacity you can't really go wrong!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for drawing, 4 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love this stylus! I was using the Note 10.1 and its original stylus for drawing which did the job, but it was far from perfect.

The Bamboo stylus is spot on. It is a lot closer to drawing with a real pencil/pen. The feeling of the stylus is almost like it's wrapped in a rough paper, making it very easy to grip and hold no matter where you hold it. This is great considering how much you will end up changing your grip.

This might sound like an odd thing, but the removable cap comes in handy for adding a little more weight to the stylus. It clips nicely onto the end of the stylus adding a real sense of it being there. (I know, I did say it was an odd thing)

This is definitely a worthwhile purchase for anyone who likes drawing on their tablet!

2.0 out of 5 stars The poorest of the lot, 21 Sep 2014
As a big Resident Evil fan I've continued to watch these films despite them being pretty poor. Out of all the films in the series so far this is by far the worst.

Basically to sum it up it's non stop action right from the start with very little (pointless) story. Throw in a few popular characters from the game for no reason and you've got the latest installment in the Resident Evil film franchise.

No one seems to stay dead (and not in the zombie sense) with everybody getting cloned over and over. It makes death hold a lot less weight throughout the film, taking away any potential tension that might be left over. Also it just seems as though old characters, who have been brought back to life, have been thrown into the story just for the hell of it.

So we see a couple of new additions from the game frnachise show up, which in theory should be a good thing, but they have no story, no history, and no real character. They are just there as filler material as a final attempt to satisfy fans. To me the whole thing just felt needless.

Throughout Umbrellas motives just seem downright rediculous, and their secret labs are getting easier and easier to break into. What should be an exciting antagonist is just poor and pointless throughout, making very little sense.

So, if you're up for some non stop action that makes a mockery of anything Resident Evil then dive on in! It's ok if you just fancy some very casual action that requires no brain activity, but if you're after anything more then give this a miss. Hopefully this franchise will die soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleek and well designed, 17 Sep 2014
This is a small, compact and well built piece of kit. It looks great and sits comfortable out of sight without drawing attention, just what you want from something like this. The great thing is that it blends in very well with pretty much most TV's, the sleek black plastic resembling most sets you can get.

So how does it perform? Very well! I've tested this on my TV in the bedroom which previously had no aerial. Now I'm able to pick up a large amount of channels after a very quick and easy installation process. The only downside is that it requires an external power source, but that's not a deal breaker.

It's a great price, looks fantastic and works well. Can't go wrong!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good signal and works well, 17 Sep 2014
This is a pretty nice device. Compared to other aerials it isn't quite as discrete or hidden as others I've tested but nonetheless it's small enough. The build quality is average, the device feeling very hollow, but at the end of the day you're probably not buying this for it's looks.

So how does it perform? Very well! I've tested this on my TV in the bedroom which previously had no aerial. Now I'm able to pick up a large amount of channels after a very quick and easy installation process.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tiny and very portable, 17 Sep 2014
This is a pretty tiny aerial. Portability is great as this device can easily be taken apart and stored in a bag etc for traveling.

So how does it perform? Very well! I've tested this on my TV in the bedroom which previously had no aerial. Now I'm able to pick up a large amount of channels after a very quick and easy installation process. Theres no need for external power, which helps to keep cables to a minimum and your plug sockets free for other gadgets.

My only complaint is that it seems a little on the fragile side, especially with my cats roaming around (they've certainly had their eyes on this during my time with it)

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly slim, 17 Sep 2014
When they advertised this as being paper thin I was more than a little skeptical. However, upon opening the product up and having a good look, it's pretty close to the claim! This is a very slim and discrete aerial!

You can mount this on the wall if you like, but it also has a sticker on the back of the device, allowing you to basically stick it to almost any surface. I've mounted mine behind the TV, out of sight, and it still offers fantastic signal.

Out of the different aerials I have been sent to review by this company this is definitely my favourite! For the price it is amazing, and if you want something small and out of sight, then this is the aerial for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and well worth the price, 17 Sep 2014
This doorbell is easy to fit, something you will easily have up and running within a few minutes. It was literally a case of inserting a battery into the button fixture, doing the same with the chime and then just fixing the button to your door frame outside (again really easy to do with the sticky pads provided)

The good news is that the button fixture is water proof, sealed with rubber to prevent it from getting destroyed over time.

The range of alert options are fantastic. Three modes, LED and chime, LED only, or chime only. The volume is also loud, audible from anywhere within my house so I never missed an alert.

Unlike another doorbell I have used form the same company, the chime for this device is battery powered. What's handy about this is that it becomes more portable and doesn't take up a mains socket in your house. It comes with a small stand, allowing you to place it easily, or of course you can fit it to a wall within your house.

It's a great price and will definitely last longer than the warranty due to it's water resistance. More than worth the price.

The thing that I liked most about the doorbell is that you can move the chime around very easily. This gives you a great opportunity to move this around to find the optimum location within your house and there is no risk of the chime running out of battery with it being plugged directly into the mains!

It's a great price and will definitely last longer than the warranty due to it's water resistance. More than worth the price.
