As expected for the price - decently made and will do the job required very well.

Unsure about the inclusion of the wooden crucifix with the odd message ("I feel about you makes my heart lone to be free") carved on a little metal plate, though. That's just... weird.

Yes, as some people have said, it's a bit bobbly on the inside. One wash inside out cured this.

This is an ace spring hoodie. Soft, comfortable and water/wind resistant. Not as bulky as a lot of my other hoodies, so I've been able to wear it under a bike jacket and works really well for my needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic In Ear 'Phones, 14 April 2014

I'm onto my second pair of these. The first was purchased in 2008 and survived heavy daily use for 6 years until giving up the ghost.

I was very pleased to see they were still available, as they're easily the best cheap headphones I've had. Before these, I was paying £20 a year for in ears that neither sounded nor lasted anything like as long as these Panasonics do.

Excellent audio response, great bass, fit in your ear really well and close off exterior noise and the design of the cable with clips and slides prevents untoward cable breaks if used properly.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable enough, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plenty of people have focused on the quality of the film itself, so I'm not going to say very much about that. Suffice to say, if you don't know what a Jackson movie version of a Tolkien story is going to be like yet, you might be in for a surprise. Other than the obvious liberties and plot items to stretch the story into three full length films and set the prequel scene for Lord of the Rings, it's really not that bad. A bit over padded and fluffy, but still watchable.

This is more to do with the quality of the print on this BluRay version, and the 3D, both of which were very good. The picture and sound quality are strong and the 3D is well utilised, but not so overdone that it takes your attention from the action. The film being shot largely in CGI helps, of course, because there's less real scenery to worry about and quite a lot of the set pieces lend themselves rather well to the shiny hi-def 3D on display here, particularly some of the fight or chase scenes.

Audio track is clear and well balanced and the dialogue is audible and not hidden amongst the dramatics of the score or soundtrack.

Shame about the 3D version being on two BluRay discs, really. And about the incongruous cut point. The timing of the end of disc one could've been much better

Just what I wanted to go over my large winter bike jacket. Fits perfectly, dead bright, well made.

Does exactly as you would expect it to.

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.
