4.0 out of 5 stars Much improved sole, 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have worn Crocs and copies for many years now and my biggest complaint about them is that in the wet they are lethal. These ones have a non-slip sole, which is a vast improvement.

If you can get them at the right price definitely worthwhile.

I was pleased that my 9 year old twins both liked this vision of the future, even though it hasn't quite turned out as predicted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for the right children, 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zu3D Animation Kit (CD-ROM)
My children recently used it on a school trip so I bought a copy for home including the camera. My boys like making animations using online software but sadly this was only used once before being put away somewhere. Shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars I keep watching it!, 16 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Oblivion [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
I bought this quite recently and have watched it several times already. It has a 'clean' feel to it and focusses on Jack Harper's experience rather than lots of confusing special effects. This is science fiction, not an out-and-out action movie.

I also love the sound track and might consider purchasing it (or other M83 album).

At £4 it is definitely worth giving it a go.

I has gone on my 'top shelf'.

1.0 out of 5 stars Repair Disc, 28 Dec. 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Not a review exactly but a suggestion for anyone who has navigated to this page looking for ways to get a replacement disc. I discovered that you can send your damaged discs off to a company that can repair them. [...]


Samsung ML-2165 Mono Laser Printer
Samsung ML-2165 Mono Laser Printer

2.0 out of 5 stars Had 2, both very problematic, 16 July 2013
I initially had a black one of these (number slightly different) and it seemed to work ok, providing a cheap alternative to ink jet. However, when it started playing up I bought a replacement cartridge for it and that worked for a while. When it started saying the printer was offline etc again I bought the ML-2165 so that I could use the spare cartridge that I had bought. As I am angrily writing this review the printer is refusing to print a letter to my boys' school. It would be easier to write a letter, so what is the point?

I recommend you spend more and get more, disappointed with HP on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good brand at a low price, 26 Jan. 2013
In our household we have two approaches to buying dog food; my wife goes high end and I go budget. I tend to think the high end foods are overpriced whereas the cheap stuff that I have bought in the past makes our dogs smell a bit and probably does not really satisfy their nutritional needs.

I actually came across Chudleys dog food via the rabbit food they do, Rabbit Royale, and if you ever see a bag of that it looks like such a natural product full of identifiable pieces of vegetation rather than what is thrown into a pellet.

What vets will tell you is that there is no 'generic' one size fits all dog food and Chudleys do a range of foods. That said, we feed a Boxer, a Dachshund and a Bichon Frise on the same same one! One of the cats as well for that matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ethernet Cable, 17 Dec. 2012
I was about to buy this item until I discovered that you need to buy expensive 3D glasses to use the 3D function and also a WIFI dongle to get online. I started to look at other Blu Ray players that had integral WIFI before dicovering that this Panasonic has an Ethernet port. I will therefore be able to connect it directly to my router which will also provide a much better connection than WIFI. I hope this helps!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy It!, 30 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Skil drill is a Bosch in the same way as a VW Sharan/Ford Galaxy is a Seat Alhambra. Makita have a budget range by the name Site and Bosch have a budget range called Skil. I am very pleased with this. Not only does it do the job but it also looks like a professional piece of equipment not commonly used by the DIYers.

4.0 out of 5 stars You have to watch it to make your own mind up., 30 April 2012
This review is from: Hanna [DVD] (DVD)
The fact that so many people have gone to the trouble to either rate it or slate it has to be a reason to watch the film. I love this genre, I'm thinking of Leon and The Assassin (Point of No Return) with Bridget Fonda, Kick Ass even! Not forgetting Grosse Pointe Blank.
