5.0 out of 5 stars My benchmark portable bluetooth speaker., 18 Dec. 2013
To be completely boring and make this review as simple as possible for you... This speaker set my benchmark for portable audio devices this year, For some reason, It is just better than all the rest. Considering it's size, it's well made and barely has any weight to it at all which is great to start with as it wont feel like an effort to take around with you. Whats really nice is the communications element which they have incorporated into it. Clicking the top middle button once will tell you the battery life or if connected to a smart phone will redial the last person you called if pressed twice. Hold down the middle button to pair with devices or use the NFC to quickly connect. Lastly, the sound which is beyond amazing for the size of speaker this is. Bass doesn't sound muffled and the Hi's not too powerful.

This speaker gets my HIGHEST recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Best" feeling & functional Non-Mechanical keyboard, 12 Dec. 2013
I've checked out most of the raptor series from corsair and I can happily report, that much like I've found with the other products, The product does It's job, Very well. The first thing to bare in mind is... No, This isn't a mechanical keyboard but that is by no means an issue or a sacrifice. In fact if you were to prefer a quieter option versus the loud sounding switches on mechanical keyboards (Usually cherry MX switches), Then this is considered a positive. Build quality is very good and topped with an amazingly comfortable wrist rest. In terms of it's functionality, You are able to program any of the 18 G-keys to do mostly anything you could think of. From one-touch email address typing to launching a program... everything is customisable, such as the 16 million colour backlighting options which is a gamers cherry on top of the cake. There are media control keys to the right side of the keyboard which make volume and playback functions a breeze and lastly, There is a USB port on the back on the keyboard which is perfect for attaching your gaming mouse instead of reaching round to the back of a tower case.

A couple of additional things to bare in mind:
A) There is no CD for drivers but you can download them from corsair's website
B) There are 2 USB plugs on the end of the braided cable, One is for the keyboards main functions and the Second is a power by-pass for the USB on the back of the keyboard to power devices such as mice and other peripherals

Other than that... Fantastic in almost every single way.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those "Great" finds., 5 Dec. 2013
The M30 may not be made of carbon fiber or reinforced aluminium but not to worry, The technology gone into these devices is the may point to focus on and they really deliver the goods. In terms of it's precision, this can only be measured by how you personally prefer your mouse to be but thats where options become available to you with the DPI switches on the left side of the mouse just above the thumb area. Comfort shouldn't be a problem as it's slightly larger than your ordinary mouse and gives your hand somewhere to rest in a more natural way. Each button is programmable via Corsairs software which can be downloaded online. Bare in mind there is no CD for software included. Lastly topped with a lovely red LED illumination for the scroll wheel and Corsair logo.

Verdict... Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Bang For Buck., 2 Dec. 2013
The Corsair HS30 delivers excellant results for the price you pay for them. The first thing to note is the build which is mostly all made of plastic however this isn't a bad thing as the money has gone into the speakers. These are 40mm drivers which reproduce great sound without making it too coloured, The around the ear, closed back design of the ear cups remove outside noise really very well. The noise cancelling microphone is also such a surprise in terms of it's sound quality and makes for good communication to fellow gamers without worrying about outside noise. The last thing to note is the on-line control is simple and easy to use and is attached to a 2.7m non-braided cable.
Overall... I almost cannot fault it, you do have to bare in mind that it is obviously a value orientated headset but delivers in terms of its performance. Thumbs up Corsair!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Easy And Very Effective., 2 Dec. 2013
I love the versatility of these gorillapods as they allow you to place your camera in places you normally wouldn't be able to place it, this makes for some dramatic selfies... In all seriousness, It works really very well and isn't difficult at all to manipulate into the form you want to either hook, hug or stick onto objects. The magnets do exactly what they are designed for and manage to hold most cameras I attempted to put on it, one of which was a compact system camera but I don't recommend it for intentional use. Overall a very well designed product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, A Great Alternative, 30 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As my original Nikon v1's battery decided to pack up and not let me turn my camera on anymore, i went into researching a replacement battery and came accross this. What is really fantastic is it doesn't feel cheap and not up to the task at hand. Fully charged first time, plugged it in and Done!
Perfect product. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars My New Accessory, 25 Nov. 2013
Simple concept but execution is very very well done. The build quality ranges from the hard plastic ball structuring to the softer gripping rings around the limbs which do a great job at making sure your camera is secure and not going to slip off any surface or branch you attach this to. The detachable mounting point is a god send and the spirit level just adds extra convenience to your photo taking.

Overall... I recommend it to any photographer as a handy accessory to have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, Good product, 18 Nov. 2013
As a viable alternative to a tradtional mouse, the kensington orbit trackball with scroll wheel gives the user an option to have a stationary means of cursor control. As the product has been designed for space saving, It provides excellant comfort and moderate control over general computing peripheral functions. The scroll wheel works well for quick page searching but I wouldn't recommend it for 3D design applications or programs of similar concept.
Overall it's value comes out on top combined with it's convenient space saving design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Photos, Excellant Video, Incredible Zoom, "Need I Say More", 13 Nov. 2013
My experience with this camera started as a comparison to other bridge cameras, however over the course of using the hx300, i found it to be in amongst my favourite line-up of tech which you can buy now-a-days... And you can take that as my recommendation straight away. The design and feel of the camera is well thought out and quality wise is definitely one it's strong points. Whilst you maybe thinking about playing around with effects modes etc, believe me when i say the zoom is the real "WOW" factor when it comes to this camera especially when you get up to the maximum 50x optical zoom WHICH i add you don't need a tripod to keep it steady, the steadyshot optical stabiliser does a fantastic job at keeping the camera steady for you. Brilliant photos, excellant video... If i were to say one bad thing then the viewfinder isn't great but thats about it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan... Yes i am one thank you., 5 Nov. 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Half-Life (PC CD-ROM) (Video Game)
This is my favourite franchise of all time... why haven't you played it yet? why are you even reading this review, just buy it and play it. (Bare in mind compatabilty of course) Check out steam accounts where you can get updates for the game etc. In all seriousness how ever, the game doesn't distract you with cut-scene or any of that stuff but just lets you become immersed in the gripping story of the resonance cascade where you will encounter hostile marines, aliens and the GMAN. Worth playing in EVERY sense of the word.
