5.0 out of 5 stars Great Prodcut, 3 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The battery does what it says on the tin.

Everything I have thrown at it so far has charged. My PS Vita can go almost an entire weekend whilst using this thing. Fantastic. Managed to charge my iphone 5 fully 4 times, with juice still to spare.

Looks good, feels well built, does its job well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the Price!, 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is fantastic for the price. It feels like great quality, and fits the iPhone 5 nice and tight. Not only that, it looks great too. In fact, It looks like a £20 case.
It protects the iPhone well, and all buttons and ports are accessible without any problems.

Great product. The reason for 4 stars is for the rubber around the bottom, sits a little loose. But it's not a great problem at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Single Player, Not so much Multiplayer., 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this game mainly for the BF4 Beta... But after playing the single player campaign, I can confirm it's great!
The single Player is pretty good, Much better than the Battlefield 3 Single Player.

The game makes good use of the Frostbite 2 engine, and it looks very nice. Still, not quite up to BF3's standards, but pretty good all the same.

Multiplayer... Unfortunately the MP is a bit of a joke. The game doesnt play the same, or in fact look the same. MP is bad.

If you are looking for a Multiplayer Shooter, Go with Battlefield 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Handheld!, 31 Dec. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
The PS Vita, is unfortunately not viewed too well right now, and up until a week ago, by me too. However, after spending a week with the Vita, Im in shock. This thing is awesome.
Blows iOS and other mobile games out of the water.
It's true, there arent that many games out for it yet - Although there are plenty to keep most of us happy. But more are coming all the time. Its well supported on the Playstation Network online store, and works extremely well.

The ONLY fault this system has, is the Price of the memory cards. If this was a lot cheaper, This would be a winner!

The games are terrific, full of depth and great graphics. Not to mention great playability due to the dual analogue sticks and front/rear touch panels.

In short, Fantastic. If you are a real gamer, and want to play games on the move, nothing comes close.
This is a powerful toy, and hopefully 2013 will be its year.

Dont listen to any of the 1 star reviews, if you are a gamer, nothing beats it.


Foo Fighters: Wasting Light (Guitar Recorded Versions)
Foo Fighters: Wasting Light (Guitar Recorded Versions)
by Foo Fighters
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.95

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Start!, 24 Mar. 2012
I got the Wasting Light book a few days ago, and after going through about half the songs, Im quite impressed!
So far Everything sounds spot on, for the most part. Not to say anything is wrong, although i have come across a
couple of chords that dont quite sound right. Although, this is a band with 3 guitarists, so, it can be difficult
to isolate all 3... so it could be spot on. Short of recording all three parts, i wouldnt be able to say for sure.

Regardless, this book is a great way to learn this album, Which is a fantastic album.

I fully recommend this book to any foo's fan. Quite possibly the most fun album to play so far!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Laptop Bag., 12 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently Purchased this bag for my new 15" MacBook Pro.
The first thing i noticed about the Crumpler was the quality. To look at, the bag screams quality, and as soon as you pick it up you can feel how well padded and durable this bag really is.
The straps are really padded and comfortable, and the back has padding that sits nicely along your spine and provides support to the rest of your back.
Inside you have a laptop compartment that sits flush with the back of the bag, and inside this is a laptop case, very similiar to a second skin for a laptop, just a different matierial.
The Zips are also strong and chunky, so no worries there either. There is also an iPod/Phone pocket in the side too (zipped)
Just a word of warning.... a macbook is a fairly slim and sleek computer, and it only just fits in, so be careful if you have a big chunky dell! Although it should fit, check first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! But not without its faults., 30 Aug. 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought the DSi as a boredom basher out in Afghanistan. I've had it a couple of weeks now, and im really impressed. Its built well and very sturdy, it looks great, and feels good in the hand. The camera's are fun, although i havent really played around with them yet.
The ability to play music on this is a massive plus in my books.
I have had many, many hours of fun out of this little box already, and hundreds more to come i reckon.
The only drawback that i can see, is that the GamePak slot (for GBA games) has gone... meaning you cant play those anymore. But, to be honest, its time to move on anyways. There is talk that most of these will become available on the DSi download shop.
I bought an 8GB SDHC card with it, and it works fine.
Over-all, a great product, and it gets five stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Flight Sim On PSP, 13 Aug. 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I have played this series before on the PS2 and thought it was the best available. This is no exception. The gameplay is fun and fast paced, although one small niggle is you cant change your view to outside the plane (if you can i cant figure out how to do it!!).
There are loads of missions to try, and it never gets too boring. All in all a good buy.
