3.0 out of 5 stars Nice little mouse for the money, 27 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a bad little mouse. Cheap and cheerful. Nice compact design that sits nice with my Macbook air.
Having just upgraded to a proper apple magic mouse however this is no where near as good as the real mccoy.
It also uses up a vital usb port of course - which is a bit clunky.
Don't think this would survive too much punishment either. It glows red in use where the light shines through, which is fine in itself but a clue to how robust it must be. Very light though, compared to the magic mouse.
For some reason I needed to use this on a mouse mat/piece of paper to get the laser to track correctly. My new mouse doesn't seem to have this problem?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality strap - Great price, 27 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great quality strap at a very reasonable price. I really cant fault this product and will buy another when this one wears old. The flat holes and adjustment prong wear so much better over time than the round ones that misshapen very easily. Looks great on my 1970's Omega Chronostop too. Makes my watch look brand new and the orange stitching matches the detailing on the watch almost perfectly. Very pleased. I might buy another one as a spare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good, 27 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Apple Magic Mouse (Accessory)
Really good. I was a bit hesitant about getting one of these. Used it for the first time at work today and thought it was brilliant. It's a pleasure to use. Much better than relying on my laptop's track pad. The optical sensor works great off straight off the desk at work (the cheap lookie like alternative I'd bought recently didn't). And the touch scrolling works great. Very intuitive and its quickly becoming an essential/expected feature for me. Scrolling in and out and around pages is brilliant. I was a little worried about it being too sensitive like others have said, but had very few issues tbh. Feels very well made and nice tactile experience when using it. Feels very premium.

3.0 out of 5 stars Suspicious if you ask me, 20 Jan. 2015
Suspicious number or reviews here in a very short period of time. Nearly a 5 star review everyday for the whole of January?
Either these are selling like hotcakes to a lot of very happy customers, ...or someone is promoting their own products.
You decide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Messy and a bit annoying, 11 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not quite what I was hoping it would be.
Yes its a brush attachment for a hose, but the soap dispenser is not very well executed, so you get loads of bubbles for about 20 seconds, then you've run out, and have just cold water to wash with. Then you have to refill it again, involving putting it down and getting the soap bottle again etc. Its all a bit annoying and quite messy to be honest. Which is exactly the kind of problem I was hoping to avoid/resolve by buying this product.

Its not cheap either for what it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, 11 Jan. 2015

I loved the first two, and this continues that trend.
Thought the format might be getting old by number 3 but I found this just as engaging, and challenging as the other two.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too small, 11 Jan. 2015

This review is from: 8 x popcorn party boxes (Misc.)
These were quite a bit smaller than I'd expected. Probably my own fault I guess for not checking the dimensions, but they are a bit of joke. Even for kids to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a game - so tense!, 11 Jan. 2015
Great game. Just finished the story mode, and it is tense!

To start with I thought they'd just taken elements from Bioshock and Dead space to make an Alien game, but as I got further into it I realised it was so much more.

The AI for the Alien in particular is brilliant, and lurks around ominously whilst you cower in a locker, peering through the grille. He is a beast! And his superiority in combat is well realised here. The use of the motion tracker is classic stuff, whilst the limitations of the weaponry and the scarcity of ammo make this a very tense affair.

I'm a big fan of the films and it is great to play a game that realises the feel of the movie so well. There is enough here from the films that plays like classic alien, with a plausibility to the settings and tech etc. that feels very credible and true to the original material. Whilst the introduction of 'Working Joe' androids is also very good, (which are surprisingly scary too) which along with the human enemies make for some varied encounters.

It is also a very long game, so great value. And the pace never lets up. They manage to keep the game varied and interesting throughout, which is an achievement in itself.

Great stuff. Very impressed. Best game I've played in ages.
