5.0 out of 5 stars Miracle-working nectar!, 9 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gorilla Glue 250ml (DIY & Tools)
Solved so many long-standing household problems (loose bathroom door handle, kitchen drawers that would come apart every time I opened them, broken garden chair - it even acted like cement and glued paving stones). Unbelievable stuff. I actually don't know how I did without it before.

Got this for the Kindle Fire HD as I love it on my Galaxy S3 but it doesn't work. Crashes EVERY time it's opened. Sort it out Kindle!

4.0 out of 5 stars Packs a punch for a little' un, 20 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to take away with us on holiday this year. Perfect size, fits inside a shoe or in hand luggage. I paired it up with my Galaxy S3 (took a couple of times but once synced, it's ready to go each time) and the sound clarity is really great for such a little speaker. Plenty of bass, but not enough to annoy the neighbours in the next room hopefully. All in all, a great little gadget that will keep you entertained whilst you're chilling out waiting for your missus to get ready.

Had this for about 6 months now - superb kettle. A really fast boiler, a satisfyingly solid 'clunk' when you flick the switch down to turn it on. Absolutely no issues at all. Great price, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting first-person perspective on a legendary rise and fall, 28 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, the BluRay aspect of this film. It was ok, however the early fights that are shown are just as dodgy in quality as I suspect they would be on DVD. Mike Tyson talking to camera is shown in immaculate clarity though. You can see every scar, mark and pore on his fight-worn and worldly-worn face.

All that aside, it was an interesting 90 minutes spent exclusively in the company of one of the most controversial sportsmen of all time. It's all here, from his rise to fame and fortune via petty and not-so-petty crime in New York, to his extraordinary destruction of anything that moved in the heavyweight ranks and his startling descent into madness and prison.

Looking back on his ferocious and prodigious talent through the many clips, you're reminded that, at his peak, this man was quite probably the greatest ever fighter. Astonishing speed, brutal power and an eye for weakness in an opponent's makeup are there for all to see. Nobody can argue with this man's talent.

His rapid decline, for reasons explained quite eloquently and with great insight by the man himself, is just as fascinating. From the death of his best friend and mentor Cus D'Amato, the unwise marriage to Robyn Givens, to the Holyfield injustices (as Tyson claims) and the conviction for rape and his descent into drug and alcohol abuse, his is a journey that nobody, not even himself, can fully comprehend.

An unique chance to have Tyson sit there and tell you what happened to a unique individual.

Come to your own conclusions as to whether he's a tortured and damanged boxing genius, or a more sinister character who hurt a lot more people than those he coolly despatched with brutal efficiency in the ring.

One thing's for sure, we will never see the like of this man again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking clarity, 8 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Now, I'm not going into the film itself as such. That was purchased more for my little one than me, but I tell you, the Blu Ray transfer is spectacular.

Although, as some previous reviewers have said, it is a little dark in places, the action sequences and the crystal clear picture more than make up for any gloom.

I didn't notice any juddering in the faster sequences, but that may be because I've got a full HD tv. I watched it on a PS3, so I can't back up the other reviewer who blamed the PS3 for any picture malfunction. It was perfect.

I've only just started watching Blu Ray stuff, but if they're all as good as this, I'll be phasing out my DVD collection pretty darn quickly.

Ps I made this a 4 star, rather than 5 star product simply because the film was a little slow in some places and the acting (mainly by the actress who plays Hermione, although Harry himself is culpable) wasn't good enough to hold the attention in the less-than-thrilling scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product, cheap too!, 30 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this after seeing many similar products going for silly money at well-known computer shops.

I've got two little 'uns who love to run to the tv screen and touch their favourite characters - leaving terrible muddy/chocolatey/sticky fingerprints all over the place.

Just squirt the screen a few times with this gel, then wipe away with the cloth (provided in the pack) and it's good as new. Shiny and crystal clear.

Same goes for my laptop. The screen's never looked so sparkling.

Thoroughly recommend this outstanding product.
