Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as a present for my sister for christmas, so not been opened, but the smell was absolutly amazing. Came well wrapped with a lot of 'fragile' warnings, and wasn't broken! It might have had a slight chip here and there, but beyond that was intact.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great monitor, bought two of them and they work perfectly. Didn't realise they were Acer at first, and probably wouldn't have bought them if I knew (have had a ton of issues with an Acer laptop before), but this helped them back into my good books, at least for single computer parts. Only complaint I have is with the configuration buttons, they're unmarked, making them hard to find, and when you do find them, you're not sure what they do until you press them. Unless you read the manual, I guess.


Logitech LS21 2.1 Stereo Speaker System
Logitech LS21 2.1 Stereo Speaker System
Offered by savvybuys2
Price: £42.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Really great speakers, really good subwoofer, 13 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really great speakers, really good subwoofer.
Only issue I have with it is after awhile with no sound the speakers mute themselves (or maybe go into a power saving mode?). Occasionally it just takes a moment for them to turn back on, but still. I think this is probably fixable on my end, but it's not a big enough deal for me to do anything about. Turning them off and back on again by the volume switch works too.

I would quite easily give this a 5/5, but I'm sure that the muting would annoy some people, so I'm pushing it down to 4/5 just for that.
Great product though!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my sister as a christmas present.
A little smaller than I thought they would be, but I'm not someone who knows much about earrings and the like.
I suppose if they were bigger, they'd be a little tacky, but they're quite sweet little things.
Also arrived early!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shell [DVD] (DVD)
The DVD works as should, so I can't give much of a comment on that.

The film itself is an unusual one - taking place in the Scottish Highlands, it deals with lonliness, isolation, seperation, and love. With Shell's mother having ran from Shell and her father, the two continue to run their petrol station, occasionally getting a repeat customer. As Shell is growing up though, she is evaluating her place in the world, and being in the middle of nowhere isn't always the best place for that.

It has mildly creepy themes - a very mild level of sexual assault, death, and health issues.
It has a couple of scenes that might be innapropriate for younger viewers - Shell is scene in a bath, with her breasts on screen for a moment. There is one scene of penetrative sex, but is clothed and somewhat obscured.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fan Review, 19 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A 29" white tower fan with a settable timer (up to 120 - minutes I assume), and toggleable rotating mode.
Three levels of fan speed (four, if you include 'off'). Fairly easy to put together; the base coming in two parts which slot together, and then need to be screwed into the bottom of the actual tower.

The instructions aren't too great for how to put it together, mentioning putting the tower itself together with a butterfly screw, and little else. A couple of the instruction drawings of the device don't match up to what the fan actually looks like, but it's fairly obvious how it's used. Press the speed, set the timer, feel the breeze.

One issue that I had with the product (that I can't see mentioned on the product page) is that it uses the two pronged EU plug, so you will need an adaptor for it to work in the UK.

Other than that, no issues what so ever!


Umbrella SAMURAI with extra long handle

4.0 out of 5 stars Rain beware, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The umbrella is a fantastic piece, I've had numerous glances towards it as I walk about on could-it-rain days. I have been into numerous supermarkets with it strapped to my back without a second glance from the security guards, however was stopped once and asked about it in a more official government-esque building. (The other security guards seemed most amused by the item, and I did get an apology - unneeded, of course, given the item's appearence).

The bottom of the 'scabbard' is a little tattered, and came as such - enough that the bottom of the umbrella is able to poke through. The packaging wasn't of a high standard - the metal spike of the umbrella poking through the cardboard box, but beyond these minor (and fairly fixable) damages, it is a fantastic item.
