5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Product, 18 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a superb product and has completely enhanced the look of my aquarium. Beautiful lighting effect and the oxygenating of the water through the air pump (extra item) has really livened up the fish. Highly recommended

This review is from: Looper [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
You have been warned by all the other one star reviewers - please save your money and go for something with a bit of intelligence behind it - not this absolute mindless rubbish

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money and but something more entertaining!, 16 April 2013
If you want to spend almost 3 hours watching a film that has excellent CGI but a 'story' that is extremely difficult to detect then buy this.
I wasted almost a whole saturday night watching this drivel after reading all the hype. And that is all it is - hype. Ten minutes of a Tom & Jerry cartoon is far more entertaining than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product with even better aftersales, 20 Mar 2013
I have bought 2 of these - one for my main computer in the office and one for my laptop. Both have worked very well indeed - responsive and accurate.
One of them suddenly stopped working which I reported and it was quickly replaced with no quibbles whatsoever.

1.0 out of 5 stars Far Too Noisy, 17 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tetra APS400 Air Pump (Misc.)
I was really disappointed with this. I have had a smaller APS 50 for some time now with no problems at all, being both quiet and effective.
However I decided to add another item to the tank and needed a bigger pump. I ordered this the APS 400 and immediately noticed the high noise level. I tried everything to disguise it but to no avail. So I complained, was sent a replacement and this was the same.
I have now returned BOTH APS 400's and ordered a second APS 50. This has done the trick - and I have saved a fortune into the bargain!!
If you want a quiet pump look elsewhere - these certainly are NOT

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't even go near this one, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
99% of the products I buy through amazon are excellent value and are supplied by top rate companies.

However with this product - it doesn't show in the picture - but the other end of the body is open!
This means that you somehow, have to block it up.
I emailed them and they said I had to get a 'piece to join the airline' on to it - they don't even supply one.
Save your money and look elsewhere - unless you have engineering facilities that is.
Extremely disappointing, as the idea is perfect

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect any support from Nintendo's website, 26 Dec 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was bought as a Christmas present as an upgrade from the previous DS. Although Amazon cannot be faulted - their service and delivery are excellent - Nintendo can. After paying so much for the product you would at least expect that their website would at least be accessible so you can see what extras are available and how you can spend your 'points'.

I have now spent too much of Boxing day afternoon trying to register and then logging on. No such luck - all you get is a message saying the servers are very busy please try later!!! What an absolute load of rubbish.

With the vast profits these companies make you would at least expect that they can provide a web site that actually works?

It's a pity there isn't a competitor for Nintendo, but I can tell you one thing. I will NEVER buy a Nintendo product again - Once bitten, twice shy as they say


Russell Hobbs Food Collection 14451 Hand Mixer with 6 Speeds and Chrome Beaters
Russell Hobbs Food Collection 14451 Hand Mixer with 6 Speeds and Chrome Beaters
Price: 9.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Very limited speed range, 13 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst this item ks cheap it is very limited in its capacity. It is described as 6 speed BUT you have a choice of fast or very fast - and there is not much difference between the two. I am now ditching mine and going for something a lot better, even if its a bit dearer.
I was once told many years ago by a wise man, if you buy cheap, you buy twice. This has proved this important maxim yet again.

5.0 out of 5 stars First class product, 22 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This under desk keyboard manager is a first class product.
I know some people have criticised the installation process, but if something has to underneath a desk, you have 2 options - turn the desk over or lay on your back. As my desk is fixed I did the latter and there really was no problem. I managed to install it in about 20 minutes.
All in all a fine product at the right price.
