5.0 out of 5 stars I have created some nice results in a very short period of time, 23 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am no expert when it comes to video edting, but had maxed out the capabilities of Windows Movie Maker.
Everyone raves about Sony Vegas, so that was my purchase. I've no doubt that Vegas has everything i would want, but the fact that it would not load an MP4 into the timeline made it pointless for me. I still dont understand why, so instead i bought PowerDirector 14.

The ease of use is very appealing to me. I have created some nice results in a very short period of time, and feel im only scratching at the surface of what i can do.

It is very user friendly, i have yet had no need to read up how to do something, It comes supplied with a sound editor, which ill be honest, i havent touched as the one that came with Sony Vegas is top notch, so i just use that.

To sum up, if you have outlived Windows Movie Maker, and want to take the next step, this is that step to take.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch for the price, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great headset, just plug straight into the PS4 controller and your away.
Lightweight and comfy to wear, with good overall sound and a crisp clear microphone.
My last headset was Turtle Beach, and honestly there is not a ton of difference in their quality and performance, but there is in the price !

Im not that adventurous with my recipies, but the fruit smoothies ive been having are great. Simple to use, simple to clean, and a fraction of the cost of a Nutrabullet.

4.0 out of 5 stars An awesome game, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had this on PS3, and 2 months later upgraded to PS4, so had a long wait until the next gen version was released.
Since then, my social life has gone by the wayside. This game is worryingly addictive.
You may wonder why im only giving it 4 stars. I do have reasons.

The first person view seems awkward, it doesn't feel like a FPS, and seems somewhat clunky in its movement. I was hoping for COD like smoothness, but it shows that Rockstar's expertise lies elsewhere.

The loading times are still long winded. It still takes what seems like an age to just fire the game up. Although once its running, there's no delays in the actual game.

Then theres the waiting times to get into GTA Online. Sometimes waiting 4-5 mintues just to enter a lobby only to find no other player exists in it. You wait a few minutes for people to join, and when they dont, you change lobbies, but have to wait another 5 minutes to find one.
Dont get me wrong, online is awesome, but maybe these loading times are caused by its own success.

On the PS3, this game scores 5 stars, as you allow for certain things on a console approaching its end, but a little unacceptable on next gen.

To sum up, buy this game (providing your 18), but make sure you empty your calendar, cos you will probably be here a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Bedside Clock, 26 Mar. 2014
The good reviews on this dock together with the price really caught my eye.

Very obvious how to set the time, luckily as there was no instructions.
I use the alarm on the phone, and so avoid loud alarm rings from the dock.
I've read from other reviews that the phone begins playing music when you plug it in. This doesnt happen to me, i can only assume people arnt pushing the phone onto the charging point fully and in one motion??

Honestly can not fault this unit. Im very happy

3.0 out of 5 stars Its a remake, not Footloose 2, 8 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Footloose [DVD] (DVD)
Alot of reviewers are saying that the story is the same as the 80's original. Of course it is !! It is a remake, a modern version of a classic. If it was a different story, it would be a different film.

I love the original, sadly i could quote near on the entire script, and so when Julianne Hough quotes her lines, you naturally compare her delivery to that of Lori Singer.
Im not slating the girl's acting, but some of the lines that suited the 1984 film dont suit a 2011 version.

For some reason the story seems to be somewhat blurred in this. From the original i know Ariel is a wild child, rebelling against her religous father. That doesn't seem to be portrayed so clearly in this.

Dont get me wrong, i enjoyed the film, but if i had never seen the original, i feel i might not fully understand the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Headset, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a pair of these when holidaying in America, great sound, and really dulled the noise of aeroplane engines, even without the noise cancelling turned on.

So when my wife and i were heading off on another holiday, i treated her to these.

Mine are black, but she wanted white, and thankfully they were cheaper, result !
Comes with a noise cancelling battery (not needed to use them though) and an aeroplane adaptor.

These feel great, sound great and are priced great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wheelchair Gloves, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought myself a new wheelchair and found the new shiney rims quite difficult to grip, so bought some gloves to assist while on my holiday.

I was using the gloves every day for short periods of time, and they sure worked a treat for the job.
After 10 days of use they did show the signs of wear, bit frayed here and there, but still perfectly intact.

This is not their primary use i know, but if they can withstand that, in 35 degree heat, for maybe 4 or 5 times a day, at the price i paid, then they get my approval.

5.0 out of 5 stars Without getting too excited, 31 July 2013

Its a pack of pens at the end of the day, so im not going to rattle on....

....however these pens are worth the rattle.

It is an experience to write with this pen, it almost makes me enjoy being at work to use it. I should emphasise the word 'almost', as no stationary can do that. Ok maybe my hole punch.....

1.0 out of 5 stars Possessed Plastic, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 0:17 Mins

This fan arrived a few days after ordering, smashed to pieces. The box it comes in is pathetic and can not withstand postal delivery.
Contacted Foneboy, who said they would despatch another fan.

The next day the hot weather came, and so i had no choice but to attempt to use the broken fan.
The grille was half hanging off, but the blades rotated, so thought anything was better than nothing.

As i turned the fan on, the stupid thing decided to rotate round my desk like possessed plastic.

The vibration of the loose plastic grille is annoying too, so plenty of blu-tac has been used to secure the grille and the fan to the desk.

3 weeks later, and my replacement fan still hasnt arrived.

Im FAR from impressed !!!
