B-Tech BT332 Home Cinema Speaker Wall Mounts (Pair) in Black
B-Tech BT332 Home Cinema Speaker Wall Mounts (Pair) in Black
Price: 12.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, quality mounts, 19 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got these for my home computer setup and am delighted with the results.

The product is packaged with all the attachments as described. The instructions are very clear. The packaging was plastic beneath the cardboard box and needed scissors to open.

Importantly for me - which I hadn't picked up from other reviews - there is a hole in the middle of the mount for the main attachment, and as well as the clever sliding on mechanism for the holder itself; it was possible to thread the speaker wires through the mount and out the back (In this case into a hole into the wall cavity). The hole was large enough for the chunky wires on my Bose Companion 5 speakers that I mounted which was a massive bonus. These seemed to be the only mounts on the market that fitted the bill (small enough to be obscured by these little speakers).

The strength of the pivoting ball is good and easy to adjust and readjust using the plastic knob on the fixture. The wall plate was simple to affix - and can be done horizontally or vertically without problem. The supplied wall plugs and screws worked just fine (Unlike with other things I have purchased in the past).

All in all an excellent set, and perfect if you are looking so wall mount small speakers discretely like myself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor design., 28 Aug 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like other customers have experienced, after not much use; and after trying countless times taking out and re-seating the inner part of this case to try to correct it; I can no longer get the case to close with the vita in the case.

A reasonable looking case, and the customisable inserts are quite nice, but I'm still left waiting for a case that can protect the vita, hold some games, and look good at the same time. Unfortunately a waste of a tenner in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Doubt, Absolutely Fantastic!, 12 Feb 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a DS owner I have not been very impressed by the games for the DS in general.
I have found with the DS that my favourite games tend to be based on the classics. Like Mario Kart, or Mario DS. This game is something far ahead of anything seen on the DS thus far. As a proud owner of Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga this game was long awaited by me. This sequel is a very strong advance on the origional.
This game includes a fun, puzzle based, and RPG like storyline, and most aspects of this game are extremely enjoyable. Although graphics were not advanced at all from the previous game the gameplay is still fantastic, and I really like the battle style, which includes a turn by turn sequence, allowing you to avoid and counter attack throughout.
The touchscreen is not used very much at all, (which i liked) and the controls were based very much on the ABXY buttons, which is a nice change.
All in all a very strong good game, and I highly reccomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Joy to Own, 4 Feb 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I decided to purchase this game on the fact that it was made by Rareware, and also on winsupersite I had read a very positive review of it.
In my own view, 5 stars may be a little much, but it does not deserve four stars.
This is as this game is a masterpiece of gaming. The gameplay is very good, and as a not peticularly passionate gamer i have played on this for a long time, so it must be good. The graphics are strong, yet could have been improved, not as crisp as games like Quake 4.
The actual storyline is childish, but not too much so that a teenager/ or adult couldn't enjoy it. Being a teenager myself i was surprised that I enjoyed the game so much even though it had such a kiddy storyline.
So I would advise to any person who likes any adventure games to give this a try, as it is very entertaining.
If you are not 100% sure if you want to buy this there is a demo with the xbox 360 magazine, which could help you make your decision.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks can be deceiving..., 29 Jan 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This game is a bit of a mixture in it's qualities..
While you have superior graphics to any other FIFA game the content is lacking, and pulls the game down in it's overall rating from me.
You can see in screenshots and movies that the graphics are very crisp on this game, but in the use of this game replays tend to have a very slw frame rate, and everything looks a little jittery, wheras the gameplay is very good overall while playing a football match.
If you are well aquainted with an Xbox 360 you will know that you can unlock acheivements in games, unfortunately there are only 6 to unlock in this case.
Generally the actual game is very short, and as you may know you can only qualify for the world cup in this game, and not actually compete in the knock- out stages.
Overall this game only deserves it's 3 stars as it is really nothing special...
... But it does give something to look foreward to in FIFA 2007.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one great game, i didn't own the origional so i can't compare but so far i find this game to be truly fantastic the battle style is top notch and the storyling once again is peticularly random but nintendo once again have created a first class game.

5.0 out of 5 stars United we are strong, divided we fall!, 26 Oct 2004
Great Game, Great price on amazon.co.uk. This game is another thrilling adventure of the partnership of mario & luigi. The best mario game that i have had the pleasure to own. A must buy for all gamers. Gameplay 100%, but even with a not so brilliant storyline this is a truly fantastic game.
