5.0 out of 5 stars Apples iPhone 6 Plus has ticked all the right boxes for me, 7 Oct 2014
Picked mine up last friday, as all ways cracking technology from Apple. Very impressed with the upgraded camera, being able to adjust exposure prior to shooting is a nice touch. As for the bent iPhone issue i purchased the apple leather shell case which feels very sturdy, and should prevent any unwanted bending. Apple said at their launch wifi had been improved on from previous models, this i have found very noticeable providing a very fast and smooth experience. the display is just breath taking offering sublime picture quality. Yes some people will argue that its over priced but in the end its down to the individual weather or not the build quality, Operating system, tech spec, design, and manufactures support ticks all the right boxes. Apples iPhone 6 Plus has ticked all the right boxes for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool little gadget, 6 Mar 2014
Only bought it yesterday, but so far very impressed with this cool little gadget. The setup took all of minutes and have played back music(mp3, mpeg4 audio) and radio via my ipod touch. Playback has been very precise and clean. I would have no issues recommending this gadget to friends and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much better than PC, 14 Feb 2014
I've been using windows based PC's since 1994 and after Microsofts latest version(win8/8.1) it was time to call it a day. I have had my iMac for a while now, with not ONE issue, i only wish i had made the switch a long time ago. I know this kit does not come cheap but believe me its well worth the extra cash. The after sale service you get from Apple is second to none not that i have needed to call them, but what i have heard from friends and family they are in a class of their own. The only worry i had about making the switch was getting familiar with the OS(Mavericks), after a couple of weeks i have now become very confidant with its interface. I seriously suggest you make the switch you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best mat on the market, 14 Feb 2014
I have owned many mouse mats in the past and this is by far the best. Comes rolled up boxed, so give it 48 hrs to level out on your desk top. My apple magic mouse glides effortlessly across this mat, and at the same time you would think the mat is glued to your work surface. I'm not a gamer but wanted a medium size and reliable mat to go with my iMac 21.5. i have read reviews on other mouse mats where the apple magic mouse struggles, all you apple users this mat is the answer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ipad Air case, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does what its made for. A cheaper option to Apple's own smart case. The only niggle i have is that the cases spine has already got crease marks from opening and shutting. Overall pleased with my purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film, loved it, 28 Jan 2013
First of all i will confess to never reading any of the 2000AD releases, but that did not stop me from being drawn into this story right from the off. From characters(heroes and villains} to the stories plot, it is so well put together and executed. Karl Urban aka Dredd has got that Harry callahan character about him, yet in a more modern style. As for the 3D content and 5.1 sound, imo is faultless. If i was asked what my favourite aspect of the movie was it would have to be the slow-mo scenes, BREATH TAKING!!!
If you like Dirty Harry, Robocop, and Die Hard(1st release) then i would seriously consider adding this to your movie collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first Tablet, 17 Jan 2013
After spending a large amount of time researching the tablet market i decided on the Toshiba AT300 101 16gb.
At £209+£18 for a genuine toshiba leather case i took the plunge and as of yet i'm not regretting it. With its very slim design, its array of connections and an impressive hardware spec under its hood there is money to be saved over the other popular tablet manufacture models.
Screen:
With its high end gorilla class screen and an average resolution, all aspects of viewing are very pleasing on the eye. This is all thanks to the well respected nVIDIA Tegra T30SL 1.3GHz processor.
Sound:
Very average but like lcd/led tv's you can't expect much with such a small and slim chassis. Plug in some headphones using the 3.5mm jack plug socket and the sound improves ten fold. Using skype and listening to music becomes very good on the ear.
Connections:
Where to start, you are really spoilt for choice in this department. The one nice touch Tosh have made is the full size SDHC slot, very handy when swapping cards between camera/camcorder and tablet. Have yet to use either usb and hdmi micro connections but from the reviews i have read they accomplish their intended tasks.
Cameras:
With a rear 5mp and a 2mp front this will tick all the right boxes when considering to purchase the AT300. For me i am not disappointed but certainly not blown away as i found the rear camera to produce grainy results. They are of facebook and email quality but certainly not to take place in the family photo album. As for the front camera this does a good job when performing video messaging tasks. The rear camera comes with a micro flash which in my opinion doesn't really help improve the end result. I always say if you want to take good quality images then use your faithful compact and not your phone or tablet.
Performance:
I have found the AT300 to be very responsive when surfing the net and switching from app to app. The Android ice cream sandwich operating system so far seems very stable and with its very user friendly interface makes it very enjoyable to work with. I have been informed by Toshiba customer service that there is a Jelly bean(Androids latest OS)update coming, ETA the end of this month, so fingers crossed. The battery seems to hold its charge very well but does fall short of Toshiba's 10 hour expected battery life.

I was torn between this model and the Nexus 10 but with the current poor availability and a £110 higher price tag the AT300 was the choice for me and i could not be happier. If you are on a tight budget and want a tablet to perform internet tasks, send/receive emails, play games, play back movies or view photos then i would seriously consider the AT300 to be on your short list.

UPDATE 02/02/2013:
Jelly Bean OS is now available via your AT300 service station APP. I have downloaded and installed with no issues. I have also tested a few apps i.e BBC iPlayer which performed flawlessly. So far so good, well done Toshiba.

5.0 out of 5 stars my first smartphone, 18 Dec 2012
This is my first smartphone(android) and i am very happy with my choice. This phone comes with great features all packed into a small and sleek looking shell. The touch screen has a reliable, smooth responce plus a sharp and vibrant colour display. When you plug in the headphones and playback music the beatsaudio provides a very enjoyable listening experience. I dare say there are better phones on the market but if you are like me and its your first smartphone then i would seriously consider this model from HTC. Another thing to point out is that its very user friendly making it a pleasure navigating through its software.
