5.0 out of 5 stars Good support, needs getting used to., 8 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good item, but you need to get used to it. It's for my husband's right shoulder which is currently suffering from bursitis and a frozen shoulder; he said once he got used to it it was a lot like wearing a seatbelt all the time. He said it helped a lot, but after a while he took it off as his shoulder began to get very sweaty under the neoprene. However it helped a lot to alleviate the pain in his shoulder which is VERY severe. Certainly something I would make him wear when he goes out, as it really supports his should when he is in a standing position.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT!, 2 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter is 18 and a gamer of the 'addicted' order. She stops for food, college and sleep, that's it. So I knew she'd love this console which was bought for 18th birthday. She loves it and it goes EVERYWHERE with her so she can game whenever she has some spare time. Thinner than the original and the controls are, apparently, easier to use and less heavy on thumbs and fingers. Though my daughter probably has thumbs of steel anyway!

Nice cover, daughter loved it and it was easy to put on which was a relief. sometimes these covers end up damaging the original one as it's removed and then replaced. Over all very pleased with it.

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Extend [Japan Import]

5.0 out of 5 stars Project Diva- should be renamed Project superfast!, 21 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like the other Project Diva games this one was no slouch either. It seems to have mind boggling levels of songs that you have to hit the buttons in the right order and for the right length of time. There is one where my daughter's fingers were a blur it was so fast! I tried the tutorial (read very slow level) and failed miserably. Still, my daughter adores the Vocaloids in general and these games in particular, so for her it was a total win. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for someone with nimble fingers and an even nimbler brain!, 21 July 2015

My daughter loved it. It seems to be impossible to do, from my 49 year old brain, but she loves it and rocketed through the levels. Especially great if you or yours are Vocaloid fans too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad film about a terrible event, 15 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Passchendaele [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
So many people speak of the Somme, Gallipoli or similar bloodbath battles like Verdun. However Passchendaele was full as much an allied slaughter as all of those and yet it's barely remembered. This film not only tells us of the battle of Passchendaele, it also sums up the ones I've already mentioned. They were all, very sadly, the same - millions of young men slaughtered on the altar to the vanity of their leaders. When you think back to the event that triggered this war it beggars belief that this sort of wholesale slaughter would follow. If you want to know more about the first world war, especially given it's exactly 100 years since it started this year, then this might be the film for you. There's enough story away from the bloodletting of the battlefield to give the viewer a chance to catch their breath; whilst still showing the absolute despair that so many of the able to fight, shellshocked and wounded all felt. You can understand why those who died were considered as lucky for 'escaping' as those who were horribly wounded and shipped home - either way, the hell of the trenches were at an end for those soldiers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The two BEST challenges in box!, 15 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These were, to this Top Gear fan's mind at least, THE best overseas challenges. Not only were they hilarious - but you also got to see both the countries in a breathtaking way. Let's face it, even Clarkson was silenced in wonder at the views in Vietnam.....that just says it all. if you love Top Gear and these are your kind of challenges; if you just want to see the countries - this is the dvd set for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is cloak is great, 15 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter loves it. It's incredibly soft and very warm; she's got it for a cosplay day as part of her leavers week at high school, but says it's something she'd wear anyway as it's very cute and even her no-cosplay inspired friends like it.

This review is from: Easy Turn Key for Disabled Toilets
The wide turner is good for someone like me with arthritis as it makes the key easier to use than the narrower ones. It's well made and good quality.
