5.0 out of 5 stars Anyway this is a wonderfully fast, fluid console that, 3 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have owned the lot from PS2 and PS3, XBOX, XBOX360 and finally committed (as a birthday present to myself ...) to buying an XBOX One. This time I did hold back on buying the XBOX (all the rest purchased on launch day) as day 1 far too often ends in pain. I am a big Microsoft fan but sorry this is a truism!

Anyway this is a wonderfully fast, fluid console that, although I am still getting used to it, I am very pleased with. The way the active application/game drops in to a window when required is impressive. I can't report back too much on the interface yet but it does take some familiarising with.

The Alien game is fantastic, not finished yet so a long way to go before I can provide a definitive review but I am currently a very happy man.

Excellent phone. I am a Microsoft fan and like Windows Phone a lot. The GPS software is fantastic so saved on a dedicated GPS for the car. Battery life I find to be poor but then that may be because I use it so much! The upgrade to Windows 8.1 takes the experience to new levels and could not be recommended enough.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have quite a few cook books on my shelf but there are generally only a couple of good recipes in each. This is full of good recipes and I have already cooked 4 in 2 weeks or so. The ones I have cooked have been lovely.

This is a short story collection, not his best but even then its still worth reading. He will be sorely missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable walking shoes, 21 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very happy with purchase but you do have to order a whole size up. I went for my usual half size up for walking shoes and they were a little snug to start. I didn't return them as something similar has happened with other boots and they gave enough to be a perfect fit; as these have too.

One word of warning. They are NOT waterproof so look to use for dry weather days and you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Major improvement in MS Media Center TV reception, 8 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as my new PC only had PCIe3 interfaces and I have been using Media Center since it was first released. Finally I now have a tuner card which does justice to my HD TV and can show the Freeview HD channels. My only regret is that I did not buy the dual tuner card.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great perspective on the zombie holocaust, 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World War Z (Kindle Edition)
Couldn't put this down even though I am meant to be studying. Recommended by my son who knows I have been addicted to zombie films since Shaun of the Dead. I believe a film is being made of this book and I will be straight to the cinema to see it.
