i got a psp but didn't want to pay stupid prices for a pro duo memory stick that would meet my needs, so when i saw that i could use one of these with one of the many micro SD, i jumped at it...the first one arrived pretty quickly considering it was coming from hong kong BUT after trying and trying to get it to work, it wouldn't...i contacted the seller and they were most helpful and sent me out another which arrived quicker than the first and this one works perfectly, i've had it for a few weeks now and its still working amazingly and is a hell of a lot cheaper solution than buying a pro duo stick.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and will end up thrown out, 17 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this just before Mario kart 8 came out for the Wii u so that i could play multiplayer with my kids on it, when it arrived i decided to try it out on monster hunter 3 ultimate while i waited for Mario kart to be released and instantly found problems...the controller felt extremely light and cheap looking with only the glossy black paint job giving it any sort of class, the face buttons ("x,y,a,b") once pushed, stick in for a moment and then pop out making pressing buttons quickly and repeatedly impossible but the worse problem was with ONE of the triggers, i've been gaming for years so I'm used to controllers but this trigger demanded so much force to be pressed and held down, i got finger ache really quickly from using it...luckily this button wasn't needed for the game i intended it for but won't be used for anything else other than my kids to play Mario kart together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond beauty and delivered in 2.5 hours, 17 Aug 2014
For years I've been collecting the Jim shore Disney traditions princess's for my daughter and while looking for another, i came across this collection and was blown away by their beauty, so being as my daughter loves Rapunzel the most, decided to order this one...now this is the part that amazed me most about buying this figurine: it was pay day so as I'm getting work i order it after spending about a week in my watch list, this most of been about 7:30am, i go to work and i get a text from my girlfriend at about 10am saying that the figurine had been delivered...A 2 AND A HALF HOUR DELIVERY ORDER TO DELIVERY TIME???, that's crazy...it turns out the company i ordered it from do business extremely close to us and delivered it by hand which i thought was amazing, anyway...the figurine: i got home that day and opened with my daughter straight away and was blown away, the picture you see on amazon looks amazing, the pictures you see on the internet of this look amazing BUT none of them do this as much justice as to see it and hold it yourself, some of the beauty and elegance of this some how gets lost in the pictures, the detail is just amazing and the colors are truly eye popping...if you were looking and considering buying one of these figurines from this collections,i assure you, you won't be disappointed, since buying this one i've got a few more and not a single one of them has been anything less than stunning.

I've had this for a few months now and can honestly say, its been perfect so far... the only slight issue i've have is if a console connected to this, auto updates, even though the console isn't being booted up to do so, the box will pick this signal and try to switch to it even though no picture is being displayed but will return to whatever you were watching/playing once the update is finished or you manually switch it back to the input you were originally on...although it was quite annoying having this problem, simply turning off the auto updates on the console remedied this.

5.0 out of 5 stars trully amazing, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I finally got hold of one of these and i'm not disappointed, although the £80 i paid for it may seem a lil steep, when you get and hold it, you won't care about price, it looks amazing, it sounds amazing, the weight of it just feels so good, and feels like it could of been the one straight from the tv show...if your reading this then you're obviously giving thought about if to buy it or not, BUY IT!!! its not gonna be around forever, its an amazing piece of collectable nostalgia and you won't regret getting it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as expected, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
originally i got the green ranger legacy dagger and wanted the green/white ranger morpher to go with it but when i returned to buy it, it had sold, i was a lil gutted that i missed it...a few weeks later i did another search for it and again, no sign of it BUT the more expensive red,yellow, blue, pink and black ranger morpher had (i thought) come down from £80 to an amazing £40 so i instantly bought it, delivery was quick but upon opening the box, inside i found the green/white ranger morpher instead...confused, i returned to my pc to look at my order, it seems that the picture amazon are using for the green/white ranger morpher is actually that of the other one, the main picture being the 5 coin morpher and the other 3 pics being of the green/white ranger morpher and description of the green/white ranger morpher too...i wasn't too disappointed as i had wanted this one more and it was still a good price, i should of read the description first rather than just look at the picture in excitement BUT!!!!....i'm only writing this review today because i came back to see if i can get the 5 coin set and found the green/white morpher AGAIN WITH THE WRONG PICTURE, but this time, all of the pictures are for the 5 coin morpher with only the description telling you what you will actually be getting but if your like me, you would have looked into these morphers a few times and so won't need to read the description and buy based on the pictures it shows SO BEWARE!!!...this is why i am giving it 4 stars and not 5, the product i got is 5 stars, its amazing, the loss of a star is solely based on the picture/product confusion.

REVISION: it seems like amazon have corrected their pictures problem and have replaced it with the correct green/white ranger morpher picture :)

2.0 out of 5 stars bad, 8 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i got this not expecting too much from it for the price, and when it arrived, there was no surprises...flimsily made, cheap plastic, but i thought it would be ok for what i wanted it for...but its wasn't, the picture when u buy it shows it holding an iphone, my phone (the sony xperia s) is about the same width as the phone used in the picture, but when i tried to side it into the holder, i had to put quite a lot of force into doing so to stretch it wide enough to fit my phone, fearing that one day it would break because of this, which it did on its 3rd use...on the up side it does work a lot better now than what it did before it broke :)

5.0 out of 5 stars really enjoyable, 30 May 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
first i'd like to say that i did play the demo of this game when it came out on xbox and wasn't very impressed with it...but after hearing loads of good things about it from friends and reviews, i looked it up on amazon and found it for under £20 and thought i'd give it a go...the game arrived 2 days later and i swiftly put it into my xbox to give it a quick bash to see what the fuss about the full game was about......5 hours later i was basically dragged from the game by my girlfriend who wanted to watch her soaps....I WAS HOOKED!!!

its been ages since i played a game i didn't want to put down, and when i had too, looked forward again to playing it. as a fan of rpg games, you know its a great game when you can start playing it for a "quick" go and then find hours have passed yet you feel like you haven't even scratched the surface but seriously enjoyed it. the game reminded me of "sudeki" from the original xbox, the play style is simple yet involving and the world looks and feels as beautiful as that of the film "avatar" with its bright colours and feel of nature.

my first impressions of the game from the demo were washed away almost instantly once i started getting into it, and for the price tag of less then £20, you can't go wrong, the game is great and long, there is good DLC for it and i would definitly recommend it...the only criticism can give to it is: play it on hard from the get go, its much more fun but not hard so you can't enjoy it....AMAZING GAME!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best stories ever told, 14 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I FREAKING LOVE THIS FILM!!!.... as a fan of final fantasy, and FF7 being my favorite, i had to watch this film. i original brought a copy of the film on dvd when it was first released in the uk, but after ungrading to blu-ray, i knew i had to have this film as part of my collection. finding the "complete" version of this film puzzled me a little as i thought i had already watched it in its complete form, but was very happy upon watching this that loads of extra scenes were threw into this version, and even a few had been changed slightly (the only slightly negitive thing i have to say about this film is that one of my favorite scenes had been changed, the "tell me what you cherish most" scene, which although its still good, i prefer the other one), all in all making this an even longer, more in depth and enjoyable experience.....if you haven't played and enjoyed the game, most of the story will be lost on you, as its set a few years after the events of the game with the story and most of the charactors from the game following through into this film.....this is a must for anyone who has played final fantasy 7 and loved it...those unfortunate not too may find the film less enjoyable but still enjoyable
