5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect product dont listen to the bad ones, 30 April 2014
Like everyone I look at all the bad reviews but I def didn't need to as this coffee machine is fantastic. Its easy to use produces a great espresso and milk froth.

Regarding people leaving the messages about water leaking well it says there may be around the water container as if you take it off to refill and keep putting back then you will do like any product, I just use a bottle to fill the container and never take it off so no water leaks.

I will say the machine is a little loud but then especially if you have a cup on the top but just put a cloth or mat under and it takes most the vibrations.

love this machine and so glad I got it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Plan that works, 12 Jan 2013
Great workout plan book for anyone looking for that transformation, Joe done a really great job in 12 weeks to get a cover model body and it works, you just need to be dedicated and strict with yourself to follow the book. The transformation has been featured in a lot of newspapers world wide.

For the people giving 2 stars etc yes Joe did have a personal trainer to help etc but Joe was the driving force behind it and he had to change his diet and stick to a plan for 12 weeks and came out with a great transformation. The ones moaning about this are probably non gym or fitness people who don't have dedication to get to a gym and transform them self.

If you cant afford a personal trainer don't have one, as the book gives you a guide to follow to achieve you goals you just need dedication and stick to the guidance.

I have the book and yes it covers some factors that have been used before but thats the same with every plan out there this book covers it in one way which works for me.

5 stars all the way

5.0 out of 5 stars Sony A57 great beginner camera, 2 Jan 2013
Bought the A57 for xmas after a very long testing system with the A57, Canon 550d and Nikon 3200. This was me going in to multiple shops and taking shots and video then using them on my computer.

The reason I went for the Sony was because it ticked all the boxes fast focusing in camera and video, great video, great pictures, 12 fps works fantastic, great in built options especially the night shot mode, and easy to set the system up and get onto my Ipad.

This camera is perfect for the beginner to intermediate level as it does exactly want you need (take great pictures). I used the camera in lots of different lighting and scenes while away for xmas, the use of the camera and menu system is easy (some people say its dated but i found it fine) changing the settings for different scenes was easy and selecting the different options were fine and the kit lens didn't disappoint. Even my nontechnical girlfriend found the use of the camera easy and get great shots.

Some people don't like the true view setting on the camera but i love it as i can get an image of what the shot will really come out like plus helps more in low light scenes as you get the true image coming through

The only real issue i have is converting the AVCHD file so it works with my Mac but that's really minor. Apart from that i'm really happy with the camera and wont be changing it for along time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect case for my new Ipad, 16 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok so i was looking a lot for a good case for my brand new Ipad and i always look at the bad reviews and make judgement from there. I'm so glad i went with this case as its the perfect case for personal and business use.

Pros: the case foldable stand works great either up for watching a movie or flat for typing, the case protects the whole of the Ipad so no worries of marks when its closed up, the look and feel is nice and stylish for personal and business as well, the foldable stand works great when showing presentations or photos as it stands sturdy with no woble.

Cons: the only thing i can say its really minor is the display turn off function when you close the cover, IT DOES WORK...the thing that i found is the cover has to line up with the edge of the ipad otherwise it wont work, so when i dont hear the sound that its turned off i move the cover slightly and its done no worries.

so all in all i would recommend this to any ipad owner def a great case and cheap, and also the pen that comes with it is an ink pen one side and an ipad touch pen the other and works great.

5.0 out of 5 stars cheap price great quality, 7 Feb 2008
excellent monitor, got the monitor so i can play my xbox 360 on if my girlfriends watching tv,hooked up my xbox came on straight away play cod 4 perfect picture no problems at all, hooked up my laptop after the 2min installation disc and all great. looking at pictures great, movies great the only 1 thing was the words on the desktop were a little blur (and i mean little) but im not to botherd about that. now for the sound keep in mind its only 1w speakers, the sound is not bad xbox i could hear fine on the laptop it was slightly lower but all you need to do is hook it up to a stereo and then no problems as loud as the stereo.

conclusion
if your looking for a big,cheap,nice looking and great picture quality go for this you wont be disappointed but if your really fussy over tv quality being perfect etc the go for something with a higher contrast i.e 3000:1, but honestly im a little fussy and i love the monitor.

this screen 1000:1 contrast other makes same size and price 800:1 contrast and below.

5.0 out of 5 stars oblivion what a great game, 10 Jan 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought the xbox 360 elite at christmas and was advised to get oblivion as its like a medievil GTA,
i now have played 47hr and cant not leave this game alone its the best the loading screen ok is alittle long
but not 2min at max 50sec which if you cant wait even, if it was 2min then you must go crazy when your at alton towers
waiting 30min-1hr for a ride. anyway this game is at best

1)massive map to explore
2)quest are indepth with story and can be short or a long quest
3)can create your character and choose your powers which you level up after your skills increase
4)tons of differant weapons to choose from swords,axe,bow,dagger,staff also you can create weapons with magic
for mass effect.

etc
etc

dont get me wrong i love gtA and will buy the new one when its out, but heres the download
if you want a game with tons of blood, getting guns to blast the crap out of things with short
missions, smaller (then oblivion) map but get fast cars and have funky stuts go for and stick
to GTA

oblivion is like GTA except medievil time,bigger map, indepth story line, longer missions,and more of a role
play game.

as for glitches nearly all games have glitches its just one of the things that come with it but on the xbox and pc
you can download patches for free to stop stuff like this.

my last advice is as this is a long game if you only play it for an hour you may not get alot done at least 2-3hours
would be at best, also when you start it may be a bit slow at start but take your time and it gets much better.

if your still not sure rent the game for £3.50, borrow a friends or dowbload and keep for a week
and then you can see what its like and if you dont it's only cost you £3.50 at max thats what i do with games
borrow or rent best idea.
