4.0 out of 5 stars somewhat thrilling, 14 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was somewhat thrilling but lacking the true excitement of Brown's previous books. With this storyline, it s annoying to never know what to believe because the intentions of the characters is always changing and it leaves you feeling a little lost.

Finally, I feel the story conclusion could have been made much more exciting and dramatic - but for me, it just wasn't so...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good value for money!, 5 July 2012
I have had many sets of earphones before and prior to these, quality of compact earphones peaked for me between sennheiser and apple - and today I went looking for some new ones in HMV - found these and here are my impressions;

Vintage marley - buds are made of Sapele Wood which is probably it's biggest downfall in terms of recycled and sustainable materials it is made from because Sapele is officially vulnerable to extinction. (see more about Sapele here [...] and colourful. The wire is very thin, lightweight and stylish - made of fabric instead of the usual low quality rubber found on other types of earphones.

Sound quality is very good - these are aimed at improving the bass of music and do superbly at this. They make the music much more premium quality than other traditional headsets. Along with this, the box clearly states they are designed specifically for iPods, iPhones and iPads, and I can see why - other reviews I have seen (specifically of android users) say that the quality of the earphones isn't great but I sincerely put to them that this is because of their hardware, not the earphones. You can't get good quality through earphones when you can't even put the money into a good quality product to produce the sound.

These have a gold plated earphone jack for optimal sound quality.

They come with a little pouch which is also very stylish.

Overall ratings:
Build 5*
Sound Quality 5*
Price 4*
Usability 5*

I have a branded one of these in Black made by a company called Kensington and purchased through Carphone Warehouse. Really good product and is very good at protecting the phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicting and lots to do, 19 Nov 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
First, I have played Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 and I expected a lot worse from the sequel, mainly due to the manufacturing glitches of 1-4 on the Xbox 360 version. In 1-4 you would get stuck in the middle of levels and the system would consequently crash. 5-7 has none of this but what it does have is a few graphical glitches such as screen going funny on certain actions in places such as the leaky cauldron. In addition to this, the Ghost Studs don't line up on the staircase properly, meaning when you have unlocked the "Collect Ghost Studs" Red Brick, you don't get to collect half of them here.

Positively with this game, it is a lot of fun, time consuming and there is always something you can be doing, even once Story Mode is complete. This game is great for multiplayer gaming. Overall a very good stocking filler for your kids this christmas :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Basic pile of garbage, 22 Oct 2011
I was supplied two of these by Virgin Media and both are dud. They cause intermittent and very annoying connection problems, including self reboots and very slow transfer speeds and download speeds. In addition to this, I live in a house with very thin plasterboard walls, and this router still struggles to share a signal even on the same floor. I had to buy homeplugs just to make this remotely reliable in my other down stairs room.

I highly recommend anyone using this upgrade to a Wireless N Router. They have better range and better features, I myself am looking into a Zyxel NBG4615 - cheap and reliable, and good reviews by PC Advisor.

1.0 out of 5 stars Simple - not worth the money, 3 July 2011
Bought one from argos - it's good it blows out air rather than sucking in but thats where the positives stop. The fan is placed in a wrong place - its placed under my hard drive rather than the CPU which is the part of the laptop which gets hottest quickest.

I am going to have to invest in a Targus one - I have had one before and Targus is much better for cooling than this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 25 Jun 2011
While the previous review is slating it because according to him it's not hard - thats what the picture is for. Clearly it wasn't made of plastic. It is however made of a very tough silicone - so it is in fact a hard case purely because there are lots more softer ones out there that don't match the purpose of protecting like this one does.

Overall a very good product, fits snugly and the button pads on the top allow easy use of the buttons.
