Half-Life 2 (DVD ROM)
Half-Life 2 (DVD ROM)
Offered by 6 Hungry Weasels

5.0 out of 5 stars My personal favourite, 5 Nov 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Half-Life 2 (DVD ROM) (Video Game)
It is a bold statement... However i will say that the Half-life franchise is the best series of games i have ever played.
What they do so well is "NOT" distract you from the environment which you become so easily immersed into so you never miss a moment of action with an interruption by a cut-scene or a change in camera angle. The only time it does take control is either at the intro of the game or the outro, apart from that... YOU are the camera (with a crowbar).
My best game of all time... if you haven't played it yet, then do yourself a favour and try it out atleast with a demo or something and see what you have been missing out on.

4.0 out of 5 stars The normal Bose experience., 19 Oct 2013
Lets first of all establish the build quality of this product. It is Bose quality, meaning exceptionally well made, This does how ever make it quite heavy and does beg the question it's portability... you can take it with you but you may not want to hold it "All" of the time. The charging cradle works fine and is convenient however personally i didn't use it because you can just plug the charging cable directly into the speaker itself. Now the sound quality, it is generally very very good and handles most genres of music with ease. It is interesting how it manages to cope with bass in music because it makes it subtle and nice at the same time which in a small footprint is impressive. Conclusion being is it sounds great and is a nice example of what now-a-days technology is capable of.

Logitech G600 MMO USB Gaming Mouse - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlimited Customisation... Perfect!, 13 Oct 2013
This mouse is just "Out There" as one of the craziest mice i have ever used but also at present... my favourite mouse. The build quality is exceptional, as is to be expected with Logitech gaming peripherals. It is incredibly comfortable to use, even for long periods of use. Then the customisation is just completely insane due to the number of things you can programme onto the total 20 keys or specifically the 12 Thumb area G-Keys. The G-shift button is something you will get used to after awhile of use and will feel fairly natural. And lastly the super crazy 16 Milion backlit G-keys on the side of the mouse just add another personal touch to make it your Own.

Overall, absolutely brilliant and i recommend it to not only gamers but everyone! make it unique to yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of a small situation., 11 Oct 2013
The JBL micro wireless is an absolute treat to use, it's almost perfectly sized to fit in the palm of your hand but if you dont want to carry it, then the hook at the top of the speaker can be used to attach to a belt, lanyard, bits of string or what ever you want. The sound quality really is something special in such a small space, with the advantage of attaching mutiple speakers in daisy chain then the expandability becomes almost endless. The only thing i have against the speaker is the plastic construciton but other than that, i thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Video, Good Pictures, 8 Oct 2013
Almost everything about this camera is brilliant, but you may find yourself second guessing how you would use it. Let me explain. My day's usage with the s9050 was great with no problems at all, apart from the fact i ended up using the video mode more than i did actually taking photo's. Weird considering this is a point and shoot advanced compact camera. I must say however, the 15.5x optical zoom really does a fantastic job and you won't be disappointed with the results. Going back to how i was using the camera throughout the day, the reason why i was using the video mode instead of taking photo's is because it is so amazingly good at it, with the added bonus of being able to taking slow motion video at 120fps and 240fps with a reduced resolution. On the picture taking side of things, there were some really nice, good quality pictures with great colour recreation. It can struggle to achieve a steady picture in low light without the use of a flash but it does do a fairly good job with the flash enabled.

5.0 out of 5 stars Picture quality is "Key"!, 3 Oct 2013
Whilst I personnally only had about a weeks worth of play with this camera, That is really all i needed to get the general idea of what market it's aimed at. Everyone, who has a desire for picture quality, video quality and that first time experience with a DSLR (However, This is a mirrorless camera in a DSLR body). This really is a fantastic camera, fast and precise when in auto mode but fun and expressive in manual or filter effects mode, or both. As far as an introduction into DSLR type functions, the end result is utterly positive. If i was to say one bad thing about this camera, it is a personal preference, but you are required to push a button located to the left of the dial next to the flash to toggle between live mode (LCD Screen) and the electronic 100% accurate viewfinder. Like i said, it's a personal thing that i just prefer automatic switching between them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great "Bang" for "Buck", 2 Oct 2013
There are things to consider when looking at this small, well built and great sounding punchy little speaker. And that is "Get two of them?" Of course you should. In a nut shell, the Jam Plus offers fantastic "Bang" for "Buck" for its size but imagine the scenario that maybe one might not be enough, then your answer is to double up an get another one, simples!. The ability to pair two individual Jam Plus speakers *Wirelessly* and run them in stereo mode gives you that flexability to fill your surroundings with great sounding music where ever you go. Compatability with other devices which don't have bluetooth? no worries, the Jam Plus has an aux 3.5mm jack placed next to the micro usb charging port.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "WOW" zoom effect, 2 Oct 2013
To start, This camera isn't to be underestimated by any means. When you first start off, like all panasonic cameras, the menu is instantly recognisable, which to those of you who have used the menu system before, there is no waiting around in becoming creative and experimenting with creative filters and full manual functions etc. Even if you haven't used the menu or other panasonic camera products, it won't matter as you will pick it up almost instantly. Aside the software elements, the IA (intelligent auto) mode will allow you to use this camera like a point and shoot for fast, high detailed no hassle shots. Now the absolute key "WOW" factor, That zoom, capable of up to x35 optical zoom is an outstanding tool for you to use whether your on holiday or casually walking in the english country side as it gives you an edge over smaller cameras but also DSLR's which might be limited by size but also limited by the higher price tag of telephoto lens. The only way to really appreciate it, is to buy one.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% What a camera!, 30 Sep 2013
As a small compact camera for point and shoot moments, you'd maybe not expect much in the way of surprises from this camera.
You'd be very wrong. What it lacks in size (Not a bad thing), it makes up for effortlessly in ease of use, creative funtionality and most importantly, being able to get that important photo almost Every single time.
The size is something i'd like to draw up on because it is such a delight to have a camera this small yet packed full of technology that actually everybody can use without reading the instructions.
