4.0 out of 5 stars Rat hammock replacement, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Savic Relax Standard (Misc.)
Bought this as a replacement for my current one which I bought from Pets At Home. although it was the same brand, it turned out to be slightly different, and the clips that are supplied with the hammock are too small to go through the holes in the corners. I had to rescue the rusty ones from my old hammock and use those. Would have been nice if they'd checked this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, shame about the typos, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, so the book itself gets 5 stars. It;s a beautifully-written novel, surprisingly funny and an excellent intro to Charles Dickens' work. But. There are a ridiculous numbers of typing errors, which at first glance look right, (three instead of through, for example) which obviously causes a great deal of confusion. Given the time period it was written, it makes the typos harder to tell apart, as it's not always obvious whether it's a typo or the way it was written. The illustrations are very small, and in entirely the wrong places, ie: several chapters after the event.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rip off, 18 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, so first I'd like to make it clear that in itself, this is a great DVD. I love Kirstie's character, she makes everything seem easier, and really got me into craft.

But.

This DVD has only two episodes on it. Firstly, having watched 'Handmade Christmas' on TV, I know there are more than one episode. Only the last one is one the DVD.
Secondly, my bug bear, and the reason that it only got 3 stars instead of five. The 'Kirstie's Handmade Britain' DVD, has both of these episodes on it. In other words, this is a complete waste of money unless you only want the Christmas ones. In fact, when you put this DVD into the player, the menu says 'Disc four'. It is simple profiteering. If you plan on buying the other DVD, *Do not buy this one*.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best PS3 game I have ever come across, 6 Feb. 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Choose your character, looks and name; gather a party of friends who will help you battle your way through many different enemies, perhaps you'll even fall in love with one of them! Influence political decisions in the way you choose, help or hinder your fellow citizens, and ultimately save Ferelden!

This is an absolutely fantastic game. It's easy enough to follow all the political side, but involved enough to keep you entertained. The level of difficulty is just right - not so easy you fly through it, but not so difficult you give up. The range of spells, weapons, armour and attacks are good - you don't need to get too in-depth about it if you don't want to, but you can if that's what you like. The controls are easy to grasp, layout of the screen is perfect - everything easy to see but out of the way. The in-game characters are brilliant, all have their own distinct personality and background, and you really start to feel for them! The romantic options are excellent, realistic, and cater for all tastes. Choosing your own background and character keeps the game interesting even after you've played it 1000 times, and there are 1000 different ways to play it. I haven't played all of the downloadable content yet, but what I have played is very good.

This game has had a lot of time, effort and imagination put into it, it is detailed and in-depth but easy to follow and understand. You can choose how in-depth you get, how difficult it is to play, and it caters for all levels of ability. It's a must-have for anyone with a PS3, even if you only own one game, it should be this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ups and Downs, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a replacement for my garishly pink purse. It's good quality, especially given the price, delivery fairly swift given that it was coming from the US to UK. I have found that the second coin section makes it too bulky to fit in your jeans back pocket, and the notes section is not long enough to take £20 notes. I will be looking for another purse, but am perfectly happy to keep using this one until I find another.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, loud, wrongly advertised, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my PS3, the box it came in says 'PS3 slim, Xbox 360, Notebook'. Basically, the light ones. PS3 doesn't fit on it properly, the weight actually bends the plastic, and it is so cheap and flimsy you could bend it in your hands if you wanted. The blue lights are really bright - uncomfortably so - and the fans are really loud. Have had to unplug it because the noise was driving me mad - I had thought my PS3 made noise, but after the cooling stand I can barely hear it. The only way it helps is by lifting it off the shelf. The USB plug has the wire coming out of the side, so you can only plug it into the right-hand USB port, or you block off the other one. Can't be bothered to send it back - item far too cheap to pay for the return postage, but will be looking for a new one shortly. Preferably one that's actually made for PS3s.
