5.0 out of 5 stars Good but slightly unconfortable, 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like these glasses; solid build quality, well placed ventilation, cheap.

The only drawback is that they can be quite unconfortable if you use them over a long period of time. Of course, that probably depends on who's wearing them.

In that case, i would recommend something like the "Lux Optical - Safety glasses". You can find them on amazon for almost the same price.

Nevertheless, i completely recommend this goggles.

I bought this game as a gift, so there isn't much i can say. However, i played it for half an hour and i loved it.

It came very well packed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding smartphone, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let me start with the phone's hardware.

Screen is amazing. Very vivid colors and great viewing angles. Sunlight visibility isn't the best but i've seen much worse in phones that sell for the same price.

The Battery's good. It lasts 2-3 days with Wifi always on, sms , some ocasional browsing, skype, ocasional GPS. That was a very pleasent surprise, considering the battery only has 1430 mAh.

Phone itself is light and very confortable to hold. I also noted that it's screen collects dirt and fingerprints very easily, so, you may wanna use a screen protector of some sort.

It has a good range and stable Wifi connection. GPS is also very stable. Very good microphone (no one will have problems hearing you on skype). Camera is absolutely fine for most photos. Unlike what most people say, the photos can have good detail; everything depends on how good the ambient light is, and the stability of your hands. The lack of flash means you really can't take photos at night but that doesn't bother me.

It comes bundled with a headset, charger (microUSB charger, actually), microUSB data cable, quick guide and that's pretty much it.

Now, onto the operating system.

Windows Phone 8 is one of the most fluids operating systems i've seen on a smartphone. You can compare it to iOS. There is zero lag, much more stable and fluid than android phones at the same price range. It is very rare to see an app crash. Windows Phone 8 also handles the 512MB of ram very well. There is almost no game that you can't play fluidly. What more can you ask for?

It does not have as many apps as android but has everything that you need. Some apps may have different names but same functions, you just need to be more thorough when searching for an app.

Also, my phone never turns itself off unless the battery reaches 0. I've seen some poeple saying it turns itself off even with plenty of battery but that is not normal.

I am amazed with this phone and I am glad it was my first WP8 smartphone.

Very satisfied, worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accurate, no doubt about it, 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very accurate scale. I've been using it as a postal scale, mostly, and it never failed me. The fact that it supports up to 8KG (a bit more, actually) is a big plus. The display is very easy to read, although the viewing angles may not be the best.

It has a tare function, which basically resets the weight to zero. That allows you to measure only what's inside the package or bowl (like sugar, flour, etc). It also comes with two batteries that will last, for sure.

This scale is beautiful, however, it's surface scratches quite easily. If it gets dirty, you can simply use any microfiber cloth to clean it and it will be as good as new. Scratches on the other hand, won't come out. It's not a big problem, you just have to be careful. You can use some transparent cling film to protect the surface if you're going to measure something heavy or hard like metal. That way it will retain it's appearence for years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good for fast jobs. I don't find them particulary confortable but i can wear them for half an hour with no problem.

Still, if you need something to wear for hours, these may not be for you.

Besides that, they do a good job at filtering dust and they are strong enough for 1 session.


Logitech B110 Optical USB Mouse
Logitech B110 Optical USB Mouse
Offered by elevenfirst
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good, 8 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a mouse to replace my Razer Deathadder that died, after 5 years of intensive use. I ordered this mouse just because it was the cheapest mouse on amazon that looked decent. I wasn't expecting much from a mouse that costs so little.

It is way better than i expected. It has a solid build quality, clearly capable of lasting many years. Very confortable and good size. Most mosues in this price range are small and usually unconfortable. Sensor is also good, it works on almost any surface, which is definately a plus.

Packaging is very rudimental. There is no quick guide or software but i believe no one needs it. Just open it, connect it and use it. As simple as that. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound, 2 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using this pair of headphones for all kind of tasks: audio recording, listen to music, podcasts. They are very good for anything that involves voice, especially podcasts or tutorials because they are extremly light and confortable.

Comfort can be subjective. I say this because they compress your ears, which is great for sound isolation but can be quite unpleasant if you have big ears. In that case i would recommend something more open in terms of design like the Sennheiser HD 518.

Sound quality is simply amazing. You can clearly hear every instrument separately. Highs and mids are splendid. Bass is strong but you can only hear it, not feel it. It won't make your ears vibrate or anything like that. Still, it will make you hear new sounds in your favourite songs. Even songs like dubstep, it's a pleasure to hear in these headphones cause, unlike most headphones, voice is clear and vivid and so is the bass.

If you like music as much as i do, these headphones will be just the beginning. You will be so satisfied that eventually you will be wanting to escalate the sound quality and jump to new headphones like the ATH-M50.

Amazing headphones to start in the world of true sound quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be much better, 1 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let me start by saying that mine came with a defective battery, so, i had to return it. However, i can talk about it's performance and features.

The problem with this tablet is that the manufacturer tries to put as many features as possible within such a low price and that can be a problem. For instance, the front camera is completely useless because the quality is so bad that you can barely see your face. Same goes for the MIC, which makes it far from optimal for applications like Skype. Speaker was fine and so was the 3.5mm jack. I think they should focus on much more important things like the battery capacity.

Performance is fair for a single core CPU. It was able to run the first levels of angry birds flawlessly but started to stutter a bit in more advanced levels with more details in the scene. Fruit ninja was playable but with minor breaks. All this with the tablet connected to the wall, since the battery wasn't able to hold charge.

Overall i believe it's worth the price, as long as it doesn't arrive faulty. Even so, don't expect the battery to last, due to it's low power capacity.


Draper 28759 DIY Series Ratchet Screwdriver and Bit Set (14 Pieces)
Draper 28759 DIY Series Ratchet Screwdriver and Bit Set (14 Pieces)
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very usefull screwdriver. I love the fact that it comes with a "bit extension" to reach some deeper places. Build quality is excellent for both the bits and the screwdriver itself.

The ratchet system is a bit "hard" and requires some force to manually rotate the bit holder in order to unscrew/screw faster. This is not a problem for most jobs but can be tiring if you have many screws to remove. Just a thought.

Big problem was the sticker that came with it. It took me almost an hour and some alcohol to completely remove it. They always stick those things in the wrong place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good but may require some work depending on your resolution, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this product to use with my PC and xbox 360.

From the minute i plugged Xbox, it automatically detected my resolution but didn't applied it. So, i had to go to the options and apply it (1920*1080). Rebooted xbox and it was good to go. Works perfectly with no ghosting.

PC was a bit more tricky because, apparently, this product does not detect monitor resolution, so, when you go to the screen resolution in Windows, you will have many resolutions available from 640*480 up to 2560*1600. 1920*1080 was not available, as well as some other widescreen resolutions like 1440*900.

What i had to do was go to the Nvidia control panel and create a custom resolution with timing set to GTF (this is very important, otherwise image won't be fullscreen and/or distorted). After that, image was perfect.

AMD also supports custom resolution, as well as Intel drivers, so you won't have problems. If for some reason games don't detect your resolution, just reinstall drivers and set custom resolution again.

I understand why some people rated it 1 and 2 stars. It should have come with a manual or CD explaining how to solve this problem with widescreen resolutions.
