6 Pairs Mens Cotton Rich Boxers Medium
6 Pairs Mens Cotton Rich Boxers Medium
Offered by ONLINE 4U
Price: £7.49

1.0 out of 5 stars Total waste of money, 21 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a 32" so bought the 32-35" size thinking it would be fine, and on the waist it is absolutely correct.

The issue is the manufacturer appears to however think that every guy who buys their product have no leg muscles. I'm far from muscular but the bottom of the shorts is so tight around the mid thigh it's impossible to wear comfortably.

These are going straight in the rag recycling bin at the tip as that's the only thing they're useful for. Total waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing for the price., 14 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on a lightning deal so I believe I paid £5.99.

The speaker is perfect for the price. The sound is strong and clear for such a small product. The play time between charges is also good at about 6 hours.

It's insanely easy to connect to and has a good connection range. The sulu jet has excellent traction on wet and dry smooth surfaces.

The only complaint I've had is that if you use it to hold a phone call you sound as if you are underwater apparently.

But for the price what more could you want.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall a solid product., 14 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall this is a very sound product. I had used the Spigen Neo Hybrid case on my 5S for 2 years and it had protected my phone perfectly.

So obviously when I moved to the 6S Plus I was going to buy the same brand. This is a solid case, it adds very little bulk, is a very snug fit so the phone feels secure and most importantly adds traction (the iPhone 6 and 6S are quite slippery without a case).

When combined with the Spigen car holder it makes an easy and reliable in car system due to the inbuilt space for the magnet inside of the case so it adds no bulk.

There are only two downsides to this product. One is that the edges around openings for the headphones and charger are slightly sharp. Not as if they haven't been trimmed properly but just as if they have been designed with too sharp an angle, they could just do with a changed.

Two the inserted along the front (which I think are for added grip) feel quite rough in the inside of your fingers if you hold your phone one handed like I do. If you hold it two handed this isn't an issue.


Jawbone UP3 Heart Rate Activity and Sleep Tracker - Black Twist

1.0 out of 5 stars Overall it's disappointing., 23 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is a disappointment to be honest. It has core flaws to its design and function.

I went for the Jawbone over the Fitbit because I like to wear watches and wanted a tracker that didn't look like a watch. The band itself is quite neatly designed with a fairly minimalist design.

However there are a few issues with the design. The band is too big and I have to move the clip very far along the band to get the contacts to touch my skin. The clip is very annoying, but does et easier with practice and the rubber band seems to have faded to a dark grey rather than black in only a few weeks.

The biggest issues are these:

• battery life - it claims to last 7-10 days. I've found it lasts 2-3.
• Heart rate tracking - it only seems to track every 1hr or so which makes it impossible to see what impact exercise is having on your heart rate.
• It won't track step if, like me, you walk with your hand in your pocket.
• The smart alarm won't wake anyone but the lightest sleepers.
• it seems to regularly mistake periods of inactivity for sleep. Apparently I went in to REM sleep whilst driving the other day, which is worrying.

It does have good points, the app is nicely designed and easy to navigate. The tracker itself is unobtrusive once set up. It's resistant to splashing and showers. The smart coach in the app is very hand too.

But overall it's a disappointment.

Foxglove Summer (PC Peter Grant Book Book 5)
Foxglove Summer (PC Peter Grant Book Book 5)
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A complete departure but still strong., 25 Sept. 2015
This is a totally different beast to the previous four in the series. They were close to a all guns blazing, magical, action thriller type of book. Foxglove Summer is a much more procedural type of police book.

I think it's hurt by the backseat that Nightingale takes in this story as he is so often the considered counterweight to Grant's brashness. That being said it's still enjoyable and maintains the charms that all the other stories in this series have enjoyed.

Hopefully though Hanging Tree will be back to the thriller style when it is released.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow, sluggish and severely underwhelming., 26 Jun. 2015
This review is from: WWE 2K15 (Xbox One) (Video Game)
I bought this when trading in some old games. The last time I bought a wrestling game was about 5 years ago so I thought "hey I bet with next gen graphics and AI they must be really good now".

Well I was wrong, there are some major issues that could easily be resolved. For example only have 6 in a ring at a time, what's the point of a royal rumble that's only ever 6 at a time?! The game is sluggish and feels unfinished, the movements are very stuttering and lack the fluidity I expected. So every move feels like a rehearsed motion rather than one fluid sequence.

But the worst things are the load time, which is ridiculous, and the commentary. Oh god the commentary, prepare yourself for the same 5 things being said every 30 seconds. I now play it (when I rarely decide to) with the sound off.

Maybe I'll wait another 5 years again and see if they've got it right by then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written & Well Shot, 14 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Blue Bloods - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
By American standards this is a fairly slow drama but if you give it a few episodes then you'll end up hooked. The storyline is very intricate and the production is second to none.

The only comment I would have is that the "blue templar" storyline is way, way too slow to develop.

5.0 out of 5 stars So many laughs it is unreal, 31 Dec. 2008
As I loved his Live at the theatre royal I watched this with high hopes. I was certainly not disappointed. He makes stand-up look effortless and is far more than just the "host of mock the week" that most seem to view him as.

His connections between topics, plus his ability to interview improv. and prepared material is simply amazing. One thing I recommend doing if you get this DVD is to make sure you watch the extras, in there you will find Dara's now famous drinking game commentary which on the last DVD featured Ed Byrne, this time around it was David Mitchell and is itself almost as funny as the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 31 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Russell Howard Live [DVD] (DVD)
He really is one of the rising stars of our generation, if you don't like someone who manages to find the fun and beauty in life's smallest events then this isn't the show for you. For everyone else though it is one of the best stand up shows I think has come out in the last year.

His energy from the performance almost oozes off the screen and manages to somehow infect you too, certainly a must for your collection for when you are having a down day and need cheering up.

Simply brilliant.
