4.0 out of 5 stars Wife says they are fine :), 18 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife says these are not quite as good as the non-disposable Venus but come a close second for a much cheaper price than the replacement blades

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the advertised software version, 7 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter loves the software that turned up but it wasn't the version advertised so I can only give it one star. We received the "Standard" version but it clearly says "PRO" in the item title above. Shame really because it is not a bad product and it arrived quickly but you do expect to receive what you actually order. My daughter enjoys using the software and it was only 10 pounds so I've kept it anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Plastic, 29 Jan. 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The "shock" in the title is obviously for the colour rather than the robustness of the plastic. Very cheap plastic casing and the buttons are like something out of an airfix kit. very cheap and nasty and the button springs keep coming off so you constanty have to re-open the case and re-apply them. I could not recommend this "refurb" to anyone unless it was for display purposes only. Once built it looks great though.....Just don't use it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality at sale price, 29 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this at a reduced price on here (£4.99) and for that sort of price it is exceptionally good quality :) well made, well printed and fits a standard 15.6" laptop perfectly. My daughter loves it and it keeps her laptop protected. One small thing I will mention is that, as with all of these type of cases, it is not advisable to use your laptop in the case for long periods as the nice padding covers all the vents on your machine. This obviously causes your laptop to overheat. Other than that... can't fault the product :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value Laptop, 17 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nicely built laptop for the money with a decent spec. I don't think the screen is as rich looking as a similar priced Samsung but it is still pretty good. I have taken a 1/2 star off for the slightly cheap screen and another 1/2 star simply because of the strange way that lenovo have partitioned the drive. At 750gGb you would think that a nice 45/45 split would be a good idea (with the other 10% split off for recovery and OEM). Unfortunately they have split it into a tiny 200mb system partition, a 14gb OEM partition, a main C: drive of 660mb which leaves just a small amount that they have split off as a small extended partition with a logical drive of 30gb. Because of this strange partition setup it means it is impossible to re-arrange the D: drive partition into a decent size (for use as a scratch disk etc)from within the windows partition manager, the user has to use the command prompt to re-arrange the whole drive setup which is hardly a user friendly simple way of doing things. Obviously if you have no use for a decent disk partition then it's five stars :)The case does show fingerprints but so did my old laptop so not a problem to me :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Non Standard plug, 28 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well it might be a good soldering iron but I have no way of knowing because it came with a 2 pin plug on the end which needs a special european adapter to use it in the UK (another couple of pounds to buy). No mention of this in the description and I would say unacceptable to sell products that aren't readily useable in the UK without at least mentioning that you need to buy extra items. I didn't notice the plug until I had unpacked the iron (unpacking the item breaches the sellers returns policy so cannot now send it back). It needs to be a 6 amp minimum plug adapter so any razor plugs you may think of using will be unsuitable. I now have to order an adapter and wait another week for delivery before i can solder this simple connection. By the time I get the adapter the sellers 7 day faulty returns policy will also have expired so if it doesn't work I wont be able to send it back either. Reasonable looking build quality so it might be a reasonable soldering iron but I can't give it more than 2 stars because you can't use it in the UK straight out of the box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 80's Style Remix, 8 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great version of the D:Ream single of the same name. Produced in an 80's style to give the track a different twist to your typical 6 minute club remixes. This version features the full vocal from the original release so you can sing along on the bus and annoy the other passengers. This particular remix comes from the "karrade" stable.. other works include.. The Way U Do (Karrade's Hard and Fast Mix)

3.0 out of 5 stars Average 90's Dance album, 8 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World (Audio CD)
This is an average album from the early 90's. If you are a D:Ream fan then it's worth purchasing at this low bargain price but if not then there is very little here to grab your attention. It's nicely produced but I find it's one of those albums you put on and then skip most of the tracks after the first 30 seconds or so. Their new album (In Memory of...) is a much much better purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I originally thought :(, 26 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I downloaded trial versions of several current video editing packages in this price range and found this one to be the least power hungry and it seemed to run well. I should have paid more attention to the trial though before parting with my hard earned cash. This software has an amzingly stupid niggle in it that makes it almost unuseable. Like all video software you arrange your clips like lego bricks along a timeline. UNLIKE other video software, if you delete one of these lego bricks then all the others after it on the timeline shuffle up to fill in the gap. This is incredibly annoying. if you have spent hours syncing audio and the effects tracks to your clips and you then decide to take out one of the clips then the last thing you want is all of your footage moving out of sync with everything else on the other timelines that you spent hours lining up! This is a shame because the software is very fast and puts other video editors to shame in this area, but this "shuffling" alone is enough of a reason not to bother with this software because you just can't keep re-aligning everything at the slightest clip edit :(
