Mario Kart 8 (Nintendo Wii U)

Price: £35.86

5.0 out of 5 stars If you needed a reason/excuse to buy a WiiU - here it is, 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's Mario Kart - what's not to love?

Looks stunning in 1080p and the online play keeps it from getting old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great unit, easy and discrete to use, 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great device, easy and comfortable to hold and doesn't get in the way when presenting.

The buttons are separated so it's easy to use without looking at the remote. If you're using a space-bar or cursor keys to control your presentations you owe it to yourself to invest in one of these.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... this a nightlight in a Childs room and it's great. It is very bright though so you might ..., 25 Nov. 2014

We use this a nightlight in a Childs room and it's great. It is very bright though so you might need to cover the light up a bit, or as we do shine it under a bedside table so that the room isn't lit up like a flare has gone off!

Very good though and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Virgin Tivo in a TV unit/cupboard? this does the job nicely, 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works really well between my TV and Virgin Tivo box.

My only (small) criticism is that the angle on the IR receiver isn't as wide as it is on the Tivo itself so you have to point the remote directly at the magic eye. By comparison directly to the Tivo you can point the remote pretty much anywhere and the command will get through.

First world problem though and being able to close the door on my TV unit where the Tivo lives is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, Haunted, Majestic, Beautiful, 15 May 2014
Firstly - it's a grower, don't expect this album to jump out at you.

Give it time and all of a sudden you'll realise that this album is more than just a collection of singles, it's a symphony, a masterpiece and deserves to be listened to end to end rather than cut into singles. Garvey sounds sublime and the instruments all have their own space rather than just being a melee of noise.

I wasn't a huge fan of 'Build a Rocket Boys', a few gems such as 'Lippy Kids' but it just felt somehow rushed. This new album takes the journey they started with 'Build a Rocket Boys' and takes it to the next level. Elbow (I think, I'm sure they know better) have reached that point in their career where they've sold a lorry-load of singles and albums, bagged themselves some Olympic show royalties and now the demands of the record companies are at a minimum. Without having the pressure of making a catchy 4 minute single has freed them up to create something wonderful.

Thanks Elbow, love it and sure I will be listening to this for years to come - recommended to all.


Super Mario 3D World (Nintendo Wii U)

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection, 16 Jan. 2014
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Amazing game. Nintendo at their finest - perfect control method, it never drops a frame and when you think about calling it a night you say - ok just one more level - usally for a few hours!.

Say what you like about the Wii U - yes it could be more powerful - more RAM, faster processor and should play blu-ray movies, but if you judge a console based on the games available for it, rather than a benchmark score or statistics on polygons then you need a Wii U and you need this game.

It could be a bit harder, I had it completed in around 15 hours. Yes I could go back through and get all the stars etc but I don't think that counts as extra gameplay as you're going through the same levels again. I'll keep the game anyway as I'll replay it in a few months and live in hope for some downloadable content from Nintendo similar to what Super Luigi U did for New Super Mario Bros U.

If you need to extend your Sonos wireless coverage or can't plug your first zone into your router this box is perfect. Reasonably priced and as with all things Sonos does exactly what it says on the tin.

Very good fit and finish as you'd expect from an official Nokia part. Looks really good and helps make the phone look a bit different to everything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product - credit to Sonos, 3 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally a sub-£200 Sonos unit that helps me think about those rooms where a Play:3 or Play:5 would be too expensive to justify and not have to use cheaper speaker docs etc.

The unit sounds fantastic - I doubt they'll sell many Play:3's now. I have a Play:5 that I'm actually thinking of selling to fund 2x Play:1's as I think that having more stereo separation in a room is better than the extra bass you get from the Play:5 over the Play:1.

Recommended to all.
