3.0 out of 5 stars Overly priced for what you get..., 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's OK. An ingenious design and very easy to fit, granted. But when it arrived I was massively underwhelmed as it comprises of two pieces of cheap looking plastic and some sticky strips. Retail value is about a pound, and worth nowhere near worth a tenner. The Seller should seriously reconsider what these are selling for as I'd love to buy more but they simply aren't worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The preparation in such an endeavour is tedious, as each evening I return from the gym ..., 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As part of a current 5-6 days per week gym routine I’ve also decided to stick to a rigorous bulking diet plan encompassing 5-6 solid meals per day. The preparation in such an endeavour is tedious, as each evening I return from the gym to begin cooking not only my dinner for that night, but also 3 meals to eat throughout the following day.

This contraption is quite simply, brilliant. There’s adequate space to be able to put 2-3 chicken breasts on the bottom shelf and loads of veg above it. The included rice tray is also a nice touch. This means that the most tedious part of my food preparation is now boiling a kettle to fill the reservoir on the steamer. After a 20-25min steam (during which time I can have a shower, fire on some tunes and dance around in my underpants for a bit) by meals are all prepared and cooked perfectly.

What’s better still is that green foods (like beans, broccoli, etc) actually taste better as you are retaining more of the healthy nutrients which are normally thrown away with the water when you boil them in a pan.

I wish I’d discovered this device earlier. It is fantastic for gym-goers like me and I expect, families alike. A truly essential gym addict product.

3.0 out of 5 stars A great piece of furniture with unfortunate manufacturing issues, 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent 2 months working on a shabby chic decorated dressing room for my girlfriend as a Christmas present, and spent weeks searching for the best looking Dresser on Amazon to offer as a centre piece. Many of the others were cheaply priced, poorly made or were the wrong colour, where as this one seemed well manufactured and stunning to look at. I was sure, that neither my girlfriend or myself would be disappointed.

First of all, the delivery. No qualms at all. The item was received before Christmas, even though it was purchased only a couple of days beforehand so given the enhanced Xmas rush (plus the dissolving of one popular courier firm which increased the workload of all the others) I was pleased and grateful.

Upon arrival however, I was worried as opening the box I discovered several flakes of paint and sawdust in the cardboard. Something was not right. Upon examining the pieces I found two things; firstly, a huge dent in one corner of the dresser table section (which produced the sawdust) and also that most of the parts were only painted on the sections that you can see. The underside and reverse were bare MDF and looked horrid, which just gave the impression of a rushed and cheap job.

Once erected the non-painted bits were hidden and luckily the dented corner was not as noticeable as it fell on a side that is not in direct view when looking from the doorway. There were a few more dents on the legs which whilst tatty, did add to the shabby chic style unintentionally. The spray paint was also very badly used on the central cubby hole (under the mirror) and a showed a dark undercoat which we've had to cover up with an ornament so it's not as prominent.

All in all, this could be a truly beautiful piece of furniture if the manufacturer took their time with it. The curves and design (especially the rose details) are fabulous and if it weren't for a badly rushed paint job (and a dented corner) this would be on for 5 stars. Thanks to the Seller though, they made a pretty lady very happy for Christmas day so thank you for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yellow Submarine, 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst most 'normal' fathers opt for a jumper, a shaver or some smellies for Christmas, my Dad asked for one of these bad boys. As a man of sound judgement (he made me so man's got taste) he chose this one over the other compressor options available and was not disappointed. The Seller kindly delivered the device the day after payment and it is fantastic. Looks like something out of a drugged up Beatles record. I'm led to believe that it works well for compressor tools and is very quiet. All round, a great product and a bargain for the price paid.

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 Sept. 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.
