5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Product, 9 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very impressed with product for price. Really good decorative piece with nice features (such as the materials being imitation stone but not feeling 'plasticy', and the small rake to put circles around the stones, to name just a couple, making it a good interactive piece too). If your thinking of anything along these lines, then get this!

Product does exactly what it's supposed to; charges your Samsung phone (used for Samsung Galaxy Ace in my case).

Not five stars because the cable is a little short, but for the price the product is pretty well faultless.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product came in different packaging to that in the above photo. However, the cartridge did fit, prints fine and does look like genuine Lexmark. (Printer used in is Lexmark X4690).

Delivery was quick and the price is the cheapest around (as far as I could find).


PowerGlide Pool Balls 2"  : 57126

1.0 out of 5 stars Chipped within days, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to replace a set of Aramith pool balls which had been used on a home table for over 10 years.

These PowerGlide balls have chipped within just a couple of weeks of light play, and have actually damaged the cloth. Tried contatcing the seller for a replacement (giving the benefiit of the doubt that they were a defective batch), but didn't even get a reply.

We've now gone back to using the good old Aramith balls (which although pricey I would 100% recommend; only reason they were getting replaced in the first place was because the colours were a bit faded!) and the PowerGlide set is now waiting to go down to the tip!


Da Vinci For Dummies
Da Vinci For Dummies
by Jessica Teisch Ph.D
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Ruined by the pictures!, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Da Vinci For Dummies (Paperback)
This book is totally ruined by the lack of pictures, or the small size/poor quality of the black and white images. The author will VERY often refer to a piece of work by da Vinci that is not illustrated, making it very hard to follow what is going on. Or if not that, the author will say 'look at the facial detail...' or 'look at the use of colour/shadow...' in this painting, but the images are so small, of poor qualtiy, printed on cheap paper and in black in white, that you can't appreciate what is trying to be discussed!

The content in places is good; there is some good background and more in depth insights into da Vinci's life, but it is written in a very scattered manner and far too informal for my liking. For example, the book is clearly written so that the reader can jump in anywhere. But reading from start to finish (as some of us do when reading a book!) you find yourself reading the same points over and over as they are repeated (in case the reader has not read a previous section). Also the informal style makes it quite diffcult to read and to take seriously at points (with the forced and unecessary 'jokes').

It is written in a biased manner; although da Vinci is not permenantly made out to be great, the author has put their own (highly positive) opinions openly across, and it feels like some more negative might be missing (whether that is the case or not, the author doesn't give 'confidence' to the reader).

There is little on da Vinci's inventions (a paragraph at most for a selection).

This book really wans't for me. A generous 2 stars is for the content where no pictures were needed to follow what was going on (which was mainly background stuff, not really directly related to da Vinci). If you want to look a what your reading about, I would look elsewhere for a da Vinci book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Salvaged a HDD from an old broken laptop, so I now have a 320GB external HDD for a fiver!

Really simple to put the hard drive in (it even comes with a screwdriver to assemble the thing), and fits snuggly. Cable has 2 usb's but I only need 1 for it to work (USB 2.0). Reads/writes just as fast as when it was in the laptop (maybe that's obvious, I don't know!)

If you have a spare hard drive, definitely buy this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good for the money, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good compact HDD. Seems pretty fast to read/write (copied 15GB in 20mins, at around 16MB/s), but I'm not pc whiz. Cable has 2 usb's but I only need to use 1 with my laptop (2011 model). Worked straight out of the box. Feels good quality/solid and is quiet. Nice blinking blue to let you know when it doing something.

Not 5 star because it isn't the full 160GB (around 10GB less space), but overall good purchase for the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Genuine Dunlop?, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've used Dunlop Tortex picks for years, and I'm not convinced these are the real article. The plastic feels very cheap and they don't play well at all. So much so, they've ended up in the bin.

I do not recommend

4.0 out of 5 stars Offical is always best, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried 'unofficial' PlayStation products in the past, and they are never up to scratch. It is definitely worth paying that bit more for the real thing, and it really does show. Control feels solid, does what it's meant to and does it well! Vibration is really good too. Surprisingly, I'm not charging this controller any more than the 'non-vibration' controller it replaced.

Only reason it's not 5 stars is the slightly steep price, but it is worth paying it!


Arctic Silver 5 3.5g Thermal Paste and Arcticlean value pack

4.0 out of 5 stars PS3 Fixed!, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used this to fix my YLOD PS3 (followed gilksy's tutorial on youtube if your interested), and so far so good.

I would guess there would be enough of the stuff (each of the 3) to make the same ps3 repair 3-4 times, so unlike other reviews I woldn't say there is loads (but certainly enough).

Really handy having the cleaners and thermal paste all in the same pack. Only gripe is that it did not come with a spreader for the thermal paste.

Other than that, really pleased.
