5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely device, 18 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was bought to replace a 3G Kindle Keyboard which had died after several years of long service.

I'm really impressed with the new one. Great battery life, nice controls, easier to hold without the keyboard and really nice addition of the light on the Paperwhite model. I am impressed.

Before punk was punk, there was A Band Called Death.

Loud, funky and definitely punk. Essential.

Don't argue, just buy.

If you like this sort of thing, you've probably already got a lot of the tracks on this "soundtrack" CD. But it's worth it anyway, especially for £3.99. A great mix of classics, interposed with freestyles from the Ice T movie.

Could have used a bit more Grandmaster Caz, but then, what couldn't?

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace, 18 Mar. 2014
I wasn't expecting much when I picked this up, despite the positive reviews. It isn't often I'm in full agreement with so many other readers.

Well, it's nice to be wrong.

Yes, it's a fairly traditional fantasy story, but it's done with a wit and aplomb that is often missing in the genre. The story is well told and the characters develop nicely as it progresses. Perhaps best of all, it isn't full of shining heroes and fairytale princesses, which is nice and gives the lead and supporting characters reality and a grittiness which means you can believe in them and not hate them.

The story meandered along at a pleasant pace and seemed to rarely be padded or filled with extraneous information for the sake of extending the book. As a result, the book made me want to keep reading and reading and I raced through it.

A really good start. I cannot wait for the second part in July.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfy!, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a little worried about buying slippers online as I'm never the same size in different pairs of shoes.

However, when these arrived, they were obviously well made, with good materials and quality stitching. The first time I put them on, they were a little tight, as the wool lining is very thick. However, within a couple of days, this had flattened out a bit and the slippers are now very warm, comfy and a perfect fit.

Considering the price, and the impossibility of finding moccasin slippers without a plastic sole in the shops, these were an excellent purchase and I'm very happy with them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the generic brush heads, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using some cheap generic brush heads for the last few months. Whilst they are not bad, these are much, much better, with a stiffer brush construction and a centre piece which the generic heads just do not have. So far, they seem to last longer and wear better, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mind your fingers..., 11 Sept. 2013
I was roundly mocked by my friends and skate shop owners for my choice to buy clear grip tape for my beautifully painted new Polar deck.

However, once it arrived and was applied to the board, it became immediately clear who was correct. Me.

[...]

Beautiful.

Yes, I am a poser. :D

One slight thing to note, the grip tape is a very heavy weight, so the grain is incredibly rough. It's worth noting that you should probably spend some time rubbing the placed grip tape down with the leftover to remove some of the roughness, or you'll likely be rubbing at your fingers for sometime afterwards.


Gopro Wi-Fi Bacpac, Camera Control
Gopro Wi-Fi Bacpac, Camera Control
Offered by Gearedup
Price: £60.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Just What I Needed!, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the last year, I've mostly only used my GoPro Hero 2 HD on static mounts on my motorbike, because whilst lining it up for any sort of action shooting is relatively easy in itself, judging things like lens angle and coverage are quite difficult.

However, this WiFi BacPac solves that issue. If you have a smart phone or tablet, and one of these, you can use it as a remote control for the GoPro. This includes the ability to power the camera off and on, setup shots using a preview window which allows you to see exactly where you're pointed and what you will be shooting, plus a whole host of other features which otherwise require the purchase of the (really expensive) GoPro remote. Knowing when I've started and stopped recording will make things like multi-shot editing and matching timestamps to videos from other devices much, much easier.

If you're planning to do more than static shots with your action cam and you don't have the remote control, I'd say this device is essential, especially at the price.


URBAN ARMOR GEAR Case for Samsung Galaxy Note II, Black
URBAN ARMOR GEAR Case for Samsung Galaxy Note II, Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid!, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A solid, well made case that protects the ginormo-phone without adding much size or weight to the already massive Note 2. Still just about fits in a tight pocket with the cover on and now feels much more robust than the phone did with Samsung's flip front cover on it. Also allows proper usage of both cameras without making holding a very large smartphone impossible, which the folding covers do not.

It's a good product, as you'd hope for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice but seems a little flimsy, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've only had this a few days, having previously been using a cover for the previous edition of the Galaxy Tab.

Initial impressions of this cover were that the front side of it is a little flimsy. It bends when you fold it to stand near upright, and struggles to support the weight of the tablet. But in flat or 3/4 configurations, it works well. These are mostly what I bought it for and other than being a little bendy under weight, it seems very good.

Bit expensive, though.
