5.0 out of 5 stars Cheeky...Freak of the Week, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having heard about this book on the RSK XFM show I thought it was well worth a purchase. I wasn't disappointed. Great anecdotes such as the human moleman make this book difficult to put down. I actually gave it to a friend who was flying long haul a couple of days after I finished reading the book and he mentioned that all the girls sitting near him on the plane were checking him out and he attributed that to his fantastic choice of reading material. Either that or they thought he was perhaps researching his family tree.

These speakers are insane - I actually sometimes plug them into the headphone socket of my tv or laptop as the sound is that much better. Guaranteed to make your housemates hate you and the charge lasts for ages - I've had mine for about 6 months and have only charged them once despite using them fairly frequently. If you're sitting on the fence - don't! Just buy them!

4.0 out of 5 stars A World Awash with 20 Assorted Colours, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased these pens for my girlfriend as she loves them so have had numerous birthday and Christmas cards written in all manner of colour combinations. Appear to write very crisply with very little blur or smudging and have lasted a fair while so far. Case is ideal as it ensures that pens are kept together and you don't end up losing the more popular blues/blacks as you sometimes do with loosely stored pens. Colour range is nice though the bright yellow is a bit pointless as I struggle to read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The (Competitively Priced) Sound of Music, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really nice headphones with a number of different size of buds in a handy travel case. One slight issue being that buds can get sort of "jammed" in a bit and need to be popped up (only about 1-2mm) to sit comfortably. Apart from that the length of cable, sound quality and overall comfort is perfect - particularly at this price point.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Case of the Blues, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 1TB Blue hard drive was the cheapest at the time of purchase so I opted for that. Slightly garish colour aside (I perhaps regret not picking up the black for the extra £10), the hard drive is brilliant. Unfortunately I am not blessed with a USB3.0 connection but the transfer rates with USB2.0 were fine and playing movies and music off of the hard drive worked absolutely perfectly. The 1TB capacity is ideal as a multimedia storage hard drive and I am nowhere near filling it up. Delivery was prompt and efficient as usual from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Late to a Great Party, 2 April 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've only recently purchased a ps2 for the first time (yes, I know, over a decade late!) and it unfortunately arrived with no controllers. I'm a stickler for official merchandise so picked up the sony official ps2 dulashock 2 controller from a marketplace seller and it was promptly delivered and put to good use.

It's a brilliant product, perfectly weighted and very comfortable and the build just oozes quality.

For only £14 brand new/boxed it really is worth going for the official controller.
