1.0 out of 5 stars Tiny parcel. One spider. Gutted., 8 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to decorate the DJ booth where I work, in preparation for Halloween. Very surprised when it turned up to find that the tiny package I received was little bigger than a 50p piece. There’s no way it would stretch anywhere near the size of the of the webbing in the image. It also only included one plastic spider. Certainly not worth the money it cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight fit but excellent quality, 5 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really good quality running shoes which were a bargain for the price paid. Excellent grips which will work a treat for the Cambridge Sparta Race tomorrow!

One thing to note: If you're torn between two sizes, go for the bigger one!! I fluctuate between an 8 and a 9 in trainers. Chose a 9 and they are a very tight fit, so save yourself any hassle in returning them by going for the next one up :o)

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely to watch but a pain to play, 30 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sniper Elite 3 (PS4) (Video Game)
I have been a big fan of the Sniper Elite (SE) series and completed each of the previous titles. The graphics have never been spectacular nor the sound impressive but as a player you can never seem to get bored with instigating slow-motion sniper shots towards an enemy foot soldier. It was an impressive and unique feature in SE2 and in SE3 the addition of a muscle layer, more detailed artery layer and even the ability to shoot vehicle fuel tanks and engine components make this the best in the series yet.

I have enjoyed this game so far, but if you’re looking for a game to really show off the abilities of the PS4 then look elsewhere. SE3 would not look out of place on a PS3 console and any chance to make the game look like a next gen title has been missed in the obvious rush to get it completed.

There are times when enemies spot you regardless of being prone, hidden in tall bushes or 1,000 yards away. In other examples, soldiers stand right in front of you and don’t see you. The end of the second Chapter was particularly infuriating as a General appears in the back of an armoured car and you have to work out how to execute him before he escapes. With no hints or assistance it took me 8 or 9 frustrating goes before I tried popping a landmine in his vehicle’s pre-determined escape route, only for it to simply change the colour of the vehicle with a mediocre smash noise to suggest it had been blown up. Also when you shoot a solider in the face during slo-mo snipe mode, their head swings back and the fragments of shattered teeth and skull follow the backward angle unnaturally which also suggests that the physics could have done with some polishing as well.

There is a very distinct sense that this game has been rushed and it’s a shame because it has the potential to be fantastic. There are a lot of great titles on the way for the PS4 this year and to compete with them this game needed to be something special, or much cheaper. If you’re going to spend £40 I’d save your money for something that really will be amazing. This one is much better suited to a weekend rental.

A good laugh, but solely for the slow motion snipe feature. Without it, this would be a 1-Star game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cushti Holder for the Entrance, 23 Jun 2014
This review is from: Umbra White Wooden Cubby Organiser
Was disappointed to learn that contrary to the image, this unit does not come supplied with sunglasses, a coat, a Blackberry, some free bills and a map of Europe. Still, a lovely little unit that makes the entrance to the home look like a Hotel. Unless you actually do live in a hotel, in which case it won't make it look very different at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get to the Chopper!, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to try and clean the cobwebs off my ceiling (which is about 20 feet high and taller than any step ladder available to humanity). Upon charging the chopper and popping new AA batteries in the remote, I quickly realised that the controls are not quite sharp enough to be able to accurately patrol the ceiling on a web cleaning spree. Completely understandable given the cheap cost. That said, I had so much fun flying it about that I took it outside via an open window (which created a great attraction to 2 of the local cats who ran around underneath it in the car park thinking it was a flashing metal sparrow or something). I've since used it to cut grass (unintentionally mind, but it works quite well for this too). An awesome little purchase, not for cleaning cobwebs though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Would make a great hat for a monkey, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe it's because I didn't read the description in fine detail. Maybe it's because the image is of a completely different model to the one that I actually received. But this item arrived and at £17.99 I was expecting great things (well, as great as they get when you're buying a lampshade). I was worried when it arrived as it was a smaller package that in Danny DeVito's underpants. Upon opening the box I found it was the size of a coffee mug, which means you wouldn't even use it for a wall lamp. If Verne Troyer is reading this review and thinking of attending an upcoming Fancy dress party dressed as a Chinese farmer, then this will make a great addition to his costume. Otherwise, avoid. Overpriced and incorrectly advertised.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great quality item, but beware of the sink coloumn fitting, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item arrived well packaged and promptly. Upon opening it up, the flat pack was easy to assemble and looked very smart once built. Sadly, horror then struck when I realised that the column of my sink was way too wide to fit the collar of this unit. As I'd taken half an hour screwing it all together it would have been too much hassle to dismantle it so with a wood saw, some sand paper and a dust mask I painstakingly had to fabricate a wider central hole to make it fit. Agree with the comments from other Buyers that it doesn't fit flush with the wall behind the sink which looks a little odd, but the overall quality of the item is very good so all in all I've given it 3 stars.

Great quality product, robust and weathered looking.
Downside is, the postman rarely leaves my parcels in the outhouse like he used to.

5.0 out of 5 stars V-V-V-V-Vinyl Worktop Chopping Board, 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a studio styled apartment which has a living room and kitchen built into one. As a DJ, I have all of my music equipment setup on one side of the room, which means an item like this helps to flow this musical theme into the kitchen area too. A really robust, well designed and quality item that's made of hardened glass so it doesn't scratch (pun intended). I now have 2 of these for separate worktop areas and they look great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bright and easy to use, 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this lamp to illuminate a small wall area in an otherwise colourfully lit area of my pad. It's bright and colourful and looks really nice. Also charges very quickly, in as little as 15-minutes on the USB (according to the instructions). The touch screen is easy to use and makes it simple to select a specific colour based on your theme. If you hold the power button for 3 seconds, you get a slow colour display of all the filters one after another, which gets used the most. Great product.
