5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money, high quality headphones, 21 Jan. 2015
When I popped these headphones open the first thought that entered my mind was 'How on earth will these stay in my ears?' Well I'm not sure how, but they do stay in. They look stylish and are pretty lightweight. Normally I prefer to wear something that has a clip to go over my ear rather than headphones such as these which seem supported by nothing. However these are comfortable to wear and stay in my ears, they never slipped out and the cable attaching the two buds together never gets in the way.

On the headphones you'll find a small micro usb port, volume up and down controls and also a power button. All of these ports and buttons are stylishly presented with nothing sticking out. At first they look like they will stick out of your ears, but to be fair they nestle in quite nicely (check out my attached picture)

Pairing these headphones is fast and easy. Once paired up with your device they will automatically connect once you turn the headphones on, making it fast and efficient.

The sound quality is fantastic for the price. The only time they skipped was during my more active periods such as running or cycling, but to be fair this was very rare. The headphones also cut out background noise and do a very good job of this. I've been using the EarPods that come with Apple devices and these headphones exceed the quality offered by Apples headphones by quite a margin, giving you a good indication to compare against.

If you're after some lightweight and sporty headphones then these are definitely worth investing in, especially if you're on a budget.

Please note I was sent these headphones for review purposes.

5.0 out of 5 stars came away pleasantly surprised, 19 Jan. 2015
Didn't really know what to expect from this show but the first episode already had me hooked. The acting, story and style are all fantastic! Some of the scenes are very well thought out and their alternate take on reality will leave you thinking.

I look forward to seeing what else this show has to offer as there were a few moments that really hammered home.

Give this show a watch. It's definitely worth your time!

3.0 out of 5 stars looks good but poor quality, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks pretty good but if you're looking for the build quality of the transformers figures from the past then you'll be disappointed.

This figure is flimsy and feels very fragile. The colours look pretty poor which is a shame.

I picked this up and plan on customising it so it didn't bother me too much.

Personally I would not recommend giving this to children due to it being very fragile. I doubt it will last long.

5.0 out of 5 stars great tool kit even for amateurs, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: eSecure (Misc.)
Great kit to switch some of the links out of my watch band for the pebble steel. There are more than enough tools to get the job done and even for someone like me who has never tried removing watch band links in my life it's easy to use.

This is an ideal purchase for anyone who wants to be able to take the links out of your watch strap without having to take your watch into a specialist all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars great and stylish band for the steel, 15 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic quality and fits my pebble steel perfectly. I picked up a watch band adjustment kit to switch some of the links out and now it fits great.

The steel now looks even smarter and this strap makes it a great looking bit of kit. The perfect companion for anyone who owns a pebble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised, 13 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works as advertised! I tried all sorts to unblock my sink and it seemed like nothing would work. Tried a few chemicals that claimed they would clear the blockage but they never did. I was skeptical of this product but within a couple of pumps the pipe was clear! Can't fault it at all.

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!

Please note I was sent this product to test and offer an unbiased review on.

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 Sept. 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.
