1.0 out of 5 stars crude, unimaginative rubbish, 24 Jan. 2015
I never forget a face but in your case I'll make an exception Seth Macfarlane. I don't mind crudity but in of itself it doesn't constitute humour. The jokes were either anal or 'I'll just say something modern that doesn't fit in with wild west' and people will fall over themselves at the incredible wit of such an anachronism. Utter unimaginative rubbish.

1.0 out of 5 stars I *think* it was meant to be gritty but actually watching people square up to each other and insult their mothers is actually qu, 3 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Sabotage (Blu-ray)
What on earth was that? It was just a litany of swearing and abuse masquerading as a film with next to no plot development. I *think* it was meant to be gritty but actually watching people square up to each other and insult their mothers is actually quite boring after a while. I love the way one of the woman in the team morphs into a different muscular body shape when in a fight but when talking to the team we're back to a slightly built woman - wasn't as if she had some special acting ability - they should have just used someone like gina carone.

Works fine and you can attach to worktop. Could be a bit bigger as larger potatoes have to be trimmed to fit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 15 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We've had them for over a year now for my mum who is hard of hearing. I'd go so far as to say the audio quality of them is so bad it's worse than a normal phone I could get from asda. The speaker phone is so bad to actually hear properly you have to switch it off. Wouldn't recommend at all for anyone who has mild to moderate hearing impairments. I'm now looking around for another system.

4.0 out of 5 stars High performance, 21 Aug. 2013
The pros:

It's a high spec, high performance piece of kit at a very good price
Quiet and doesn't get hot
Relatively slim
Has a touch screen - there's is no point getting windows 8 without a touch screen
Has a dvd writer - debated whether I needed this and thank god I decided I did as needed it on day 1.
Backlit keyboard
Windows 8 has some nice apps - the news app is great with large photos and text - I believe this is known as an 'immersive' experience. The weather app is pretty cool too.

The cons:

- Poor battery life (roughly 3 hours) - same as my xps from 4 years ago. If it can hold to 3 hours without degrading to 1 hour after a year then at least that would be an improvement. We shall see.
- It really wouldn't be too big a leap of engineering to make the screen fold back all the way but as it is the screen only tilts back by I think less than 45 degrees.
- It's two OS's: the tiles and touchscreen and the desktop which is more or less windows 7 and not touch optimised so I'm just slipping into using my mouse/touchpad
- Notepad isn't available on desktop and this bugs me
- Touchpad is too sensitive and you can easily make a gesture without meaning to and wuhey your screen has been replaced by another one *&!*!.

Summary:
Well worth the price tag - the high spec will last me for at least another 4 years. I bunged in a 500gb ssd and things like Photoshop just open in the blink of an eye. I could make a cup of tea while they opened on the old laptop. Incidentally I got in on VERY for £750 on a buy now pay 12 months later which is normally more expensive.
