Great watch but just buy it from Motorola's UK website instead at £199 including VAT and delivery!

1.0 out of 5 stars the ball joint at the top is a bit fiddly to change when you want to sit your camera in portrait Would not buy another one of th, 7 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For:
Fairly quick to pop the legs out/change length
Not that expensive
Quick release head works well

Against:
TIGHTENED UP THE MIDDLE EXTENSION AND IT CRACKED THE OTHER DAY
USED IT THIS MORNING AND TIGHTENED UP THE MIDDLE EXTENSION AGAIN AND IT SHATTERED
IT IS NOW UNUSABLE AS THE MIDDLE EXTENSION PIECE JUST WOBBLES AROUND
Also, the ball joint at the top is a bit fiddly to change when you want to sit your camera in portrait

Would not buy another one of these due to the poor build quality of the turning lever that tightens up the middle shaft.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but flawed, 9 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Diablo III (PC/Mac DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Great game when it works!

Love:
The bosses/big end monsters are great
The wide variety of weapons
The many difficulty levels for replayability

Hate:
Playing SOLO when not at home on a poorer Internet connection!!
Then game chugs or is unplayable on a poor connection and if the Blizzard servers are down then you can't play at all. Come on Blizzard, at least let you play single player without an Internet connection!! Or if you have to have it there for piracy then here's a thought: have the game check randomly now and again to make sure you're using a legitimate copy so it doesn't ruin your whole gaming experience !!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but has a major flaw..., 9 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Played half a dozen rounds with it now.

Love:
The hard plastic pick up handle
The cool pocket for quick access to a water bottle
The 14 dividers for the clubs
The variety of pockets

Hate:
The leg stands: One leg gets stuck with an umbrella in the umbrella holder so you have to put it down and pull the leg out manually every time!! In this country you need an umbrella 'just in case', a lot so this is very poor. I've tried different umbrellas too, no difference...
The carry strap is already twisting
The carry strap padding is thinning too

Torn between 2 and 3 stars...

1.0 out of 5 stars Twice the price!!, 9 Jun. 2014
Like other reviewers have said before; these are way overpriced and the capsules are exactly the same specific ones you can buy from Nespresso. It lists the names of the coffee capsules in the description and they're the same ones but 25p a capsule (roughly) overpriced!

2.0 out of 5 stars 12 years of not a great deal going on, 5 Jun. 2014
Great acting but sadly that's all it has going for it. **Spoiler alert** So, he's captured, is a slave for 12 years and nothing happens in this time apart from a little over-acting from fenderbender and a couple of beatings (that were very well done); then Chiwetel talks to Brad Pitt who is persuaded to pass information on to eventually free him.

I watched this with a few friends who unfortunately all thought the same thing (it was simply uneventful) which is a shame as we were all looking forward to it after the hype it received. I'd like to think we're all fairly well educated too but that's a different discussion entirely!

3.0 out of 5 stars Item is good, be wary of delivery charges..., 14 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing wrong with the item, it does what it says but be wary of the over £4 delivery charge as it came with a first class "large" stamp on a small envelope. I have given the item an average review to draw attention to this review. Bought from "ixplor" so be warned, you may find it cheaper or a similar cable elsewhere for less. I hate the way people think they can get away with charging nearly a fiver for delivery that was probably less than a pound. If you have to charge more for the item then charge more.

Please note that the product does the job but it should be sold at £9 which was the order total.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good film, 19 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was just browsing through a few of my favourite films and noticed that Braveheart received loads of 1 star reviews. Thought I'd balance things out a little. Reading quite a few of the 1 star reviews shows that people have given it 1 star because it is historically inaccurate. I didn't realise it said true story on the front cover, must have missed that one. Good grief, get a grip and just enjoy a very good passionate film with plenty of great scenery, humour, action and a bit of romance thrown in.

It isn't perfect but watch it and don't take it too seriously, it's fab!
