Looks great and feels well built, if you want a stylish coffee table would recommend it.

Great product for the price.


Star Trek: The Next Generation / Doctor Who: Assimilation 2 Volume 1 (Star Trek/Doctor Who)
Star Trek: The Next Generation / Doctor Who: Assimilation 2 Volume 1 (Star Trek/Doctor Who)
by J. K. Woodward
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.50

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Doctor Who with Star Trek....what more could you ask for?, 4 Sept. 2014
Being a big fan of doctor who and STTNG ordered just as a curiosity to see how a cross over would work and am quite surprised with the result.

The story is pretty good and even Tom Bakers doctor makes a welcome appearance.


Indispensable: How to Become the Company That Your Customers Can't Live Without
Indispensable: How to Become the Company That Your Customers Can't Live Without
by Joe Calloway
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £21.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book, 21 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read a lot of business books and find most of them to be over complicated and more focused on selling the author than on actually providing down to earth useful advice.

After reading the excellent Category of One I've been going back through Joe's catalogue and this was the last one on my list to read.

Like all Joe's books is really easy to understand with some great real world examples to support the concepts discussed.

For those looking for a 20 step guide to becoming an indispensable company to your customers, then this isn't for you as there is no such thing. If however you are looking for a book which will help you understand how other companies have become indispensable so you can work (yes work, there is no magic wand!) to make your own company the same, then you won't be disappointed.


Becoming a Category of One: How Extraordinary Companies Transcend Commodity and Defy Comparison
Becoming a Category of One: How Extraordinary Companies Transcend Commodity and Defy Comparison
by Joe Calloway
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Best business book, 24 July 2014
Can't recommend becoming a category of one highly enough.

Is really easy to read and explains how successful companies achieve their results by positioning themselves above the competition.

Was the first of Joe's books I ever read and have now read all of them and really like the way he writes.

A lot of business books can be a re-hash of existing ideas or concepts which can be quite hard to digest, but this one is really accessible and the concepts can be applied to any company of any size.

Unless you are already top of your industry and have a well defined plan on how to remain at that level then you really need to read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for anyone who runs a business, 29 April 2014

This review is from: Never by Chance (Hardcover)
Have read most of Joe's books now and have always found them really well written and easy to follow.

This book covers Vision, Culture and the leadership mind-set (amongst other things), understanding each of these is essential if you want a successful business.

Nothing in this book hasn't been covered by the thousands of other business books available, but the real plus to this one is that it's not pages and pages of waffle and just gets the message across in a simple concise way.

If you enjoyed this book then would recommend "Becoming a Category of One" (also by Joe Calloway) as next on your list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works exactly as expected, plugged into an HP laptop with HDMI out only and can now use my VGA monitor as a 2nd display.

As HDMI also carries sound had to reconfigure my laptop to play audio through the laptop, but easy enough to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really great game, with a few flaws, 25 Mar. 2014
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Being a massive fan of the first two infamous games couldn't wait for this title to hit the PS4.

Wasn't disappointed with the graphics, powers or other enhancements to the infamous world, however it is a bit short when compared to the previous games and could have done with a bit more variety on the bad guys.

That said the game is really good fun to play and is the first ps4 game i've seen which really starts to show what the hardware is capable of.

Hopefully there will be some add on levels developed which will turn this from a great to an epic game.


BaByliss For Men 7435U Easy Cut Hair Clipper
BaByliss For Men 7435U Easy Cut Hair Clipper

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for solo use, 21 Jun. 2013
Having used normal clippers with varying degrees of success I finally took the plunge and got an easy cut.

Getting down to a 1/2 does take a while as you have to go down to a 3/4 first and then go over it again.

Doesn't do the sides/edges very well but does include a small trimmer to go over these once you have the majority of your head done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haven't found much better for the price, 28 Jun. 2012
I ordered one of these a few weeks ago from PC world and it arrived on Tuesday.

First thoughts on design are that it looks a lot more expensive than it was and I really like the keyboard as laptops can be a bit of a pain to type on due to the cramped keys, but on this laptop the keys are well spaced and offer a good amount of feedback for those used to typing with a proper keyboard, the separate numeric keypad is also very handy.

Spec wise it's very good for the money, the i3 processor and 4gig of RAM do a decent job especially when running Linux. There is also a model for £399 which has an i5 for those who want a bit more power.

One of the big selling points is the battery life of 5 hours+, this is a very nice feature for those who plan on taking their laptop out and about a lot.

The built in video card means playing the latest 3D games may not be possible, but if you are looking for a cheap laptop for general browsing, office etc then this is the one for you.
