Miadomodo® BDS 22 Synthetic Leather Office Chair DIFFERENT COLOURS (black & red)
Miadomodo® BDS 22 Synthetic Leather Office Chair DIFFERENT COLOURS (black & red)

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish I could say good things..., 15 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...but sadly the chair base had some issue with the screws and we had to improvise another way to attach the base to the chair so the wheels could be mounted on. What issue was it? The screws wouldn't go in and before we knew it, there were 3 screws with the thread damaged and unusable. We only got one screw in and it took some persuasion and then some.

Is it comfortable? Well, yes but... I'm 5ft 6" and the head rest sits in my shoulder blades pushing me into an awkward position which forces the use of a nice big pillow behind my back to remove me from the lurching cocoon and allow a better more relaxed posture.

Would I recommend it? For less than 50 quid you can have a chair that might work for you. As such, and having met this requisite, then it is a good chair. I'm sort of happy with it, but it had to be "customized" to work for me.

How about yourself? Caveat emptor is all I will say.

Does what it is claimed. No need for antivirus, or constant OS updates. You can also put it in the microwave at your own risk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works best as an emergency mirror., 9 Aug. 2014

Modern Warfare 2 was by far the best. Welcome to COD Ghosts, where grenades don't hurt anyone and air support means most will live. Violence watered down for the masses. Enjoy!

So far it didn't red ring, unlike the previous 360 that spun me around from day one.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Wolfenstein had nothing on this., 8 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This game seemed to be stirring some good comments and reviews but I wasn't going to get it. That was until watching XBOXAHOY's video titled "The weapons of Wolfesntein: the new order" who pretty much sold the game to me. Haven't watched it? You should.

You want a game that will take you on a emotional, fun filled, journey? Then this is it. You'll fight through hordes of enemies and most of the time you have the choice to go in loud and furious, or stealthy and tactical. For me, using the silenced pistol or throwing the knife was very rewarding.

The maps have plenty to explore with hidden items to be found. Even on XBOX 360 the graphics and detail are some of the best of what you'll see on this platform. No wonder this comes on 4 discs. Be prepared for a 10 minute install.

But is it worth it? Yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars 360 version is good enough, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Titanfall (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Haven't had this much fun since Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. This plays EPIC!

You can go after the minions and stay out of trouble, or stay stealthy and destroy titans from a safe distance, or get into the frantic action. It is your choice and there is a place for everyone.

The maps are really detailed with lots of options for every play style. The vertical play is something that beats any other first person shooter out there.

No longer you're limited to hiding behind a barrel or crate. Or surprised by the camper who is shooting anyone coming up the stairs. He thinks he's safe but you can fly in through the window or find your way to the roof and kickass.

Already sold my copy of the fiasco that was COD Ghosts. A shame really because I bought every singe one and still have the others. You judge for yourself.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh durability. Where art thou?, 23 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you planning on buying one of these know this...

Any faults that it develops, there are no repairs possible on it. The manufacturer tells you it is best to buy another one.

Mine didn't last 6 months and always had trouble. Maybe it was a defective battery but for some reason it never held charge correctly. Sometimes it would be good enough for just 15 minutes of use, failing to power on the next day.

It developed a fault with the rear cover and eventually came off making it impossible to secure the battery and rendering it useless.

Attempted to open it and make an improv job running two 18650 batteries in parallel and found the mini screws were rusted beyond ridiculous hence impossible to repair.

I hate saying this because I was trying to avoid buying a gopro, but, buy a gopro.
