5.0 out of 5 stars Good sound quality and comfort, 5 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a gaming headset for your PC but it can be used for other things. For example watching movies on your PC or just chatting. It's a stereo headset that simulates a 7.1 experience, and it does a pretty good job. It doesn't come with any instructions just the warranty info. It's a plug and play device via USB and will install itself when you plug it in. Make sure you download the software from the website that controls all the levels etc. It's comfortable to wear and looks quite stylish for a big headset. The mic is noise cancelling so it will only pick up your voice from the mic and nothing else, quite useful for the people listening on the other end. Some people might say to spend a bit more for something higher spec, as this is the budget option but it is very good quality and should do the job. It really is comfortable to wear.


PS3 Officially Licensed Power Bank/Rechargeable Battery Pack (PS3)

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful if you game a lot, 5 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is really a bonus of convenience for your control pad. Basically you charge it from your PS3 and then you have a little power pack that can clip on to your dual shock pad when the battery on that conks out. Which does often happen during a game session mid game and then you've got to connect the wire which is an inconvenience, with this little beauty you just clip it on when you need to and it will charge your pad as you continue to use it, wire free. Hardcore gamers only I would say, or people with money to burn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun!, 5 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Found it difficult to remove from the packaging but after that it was all fun. You'll need batteries for the remote, which aren't included. It's surprisingly fast so you will need a wide open space to have a good drive around and be able to steer it properly. As mentioned I had to pair up the device to the remote and the instructions on that could be clearer. Seems well built and we crashed it a few times and it kept on going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 27 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the third cordless vacuum I've tried (after Bissel, Gtech) and it impressed me. It's not the lightest, but it is versatile in getting under beds and around corners etc.And frankly it's probably the most powerful and will replace a proper vacuum in that sense. There are three settings, floor, carpet and turbo. The other big plus for me is a washable hepa filter, because I have asthma and these vacuums tend to blow air out the side a bit. Anyway, the hover itself was very easy to slot together, I didn't need the instructions, but you will need a philips head screw driver for the bottom part though. The dust chamber slots out easily and there's a button that releases a door to let the dust fall out, you may need to pull it out. It's recommended to wash the filter once a month and let it dry for 24 hours before putting it back in. My Hover came with a full charge already, so I was able to test it out straight away. There's an LED charging indicator on the front that tells you how charged it is, very useful. If you want something for a quick clean there are cheaper lighter vacuums on the market, but this in my opinion is a good proper vacuum substitute, without cords. Takes up hardly any space, well designed and looks the business. A decent product that seems well made, I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cat found this relaxing, 18 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My cats fur tends to get clumpy on her back where she can't reach it easily to wash and groom it herself. This brush worked like a charm and the cat enjoyed being brushed with it. It helped to get her fur back in order in no time at all. I found that the shorter side worked best for my cat, but the longer side is there to use as well. It was easy to use and does what it says basically.


Thrunite T10 LED flashlight, Cree XP-G LED,waterproof
Thrunite T10 LED flashlight, Cree XP-G LED,waterproof

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential illumination, 16 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This small pocket sized single AA powered light packs punch, with three brightness levels. 0.9 lumens, 9 lumens and 115 lumens. Good run times as well. I was concerned that the medium level would not be bright enough at 9 lumens but actually it's very useable and plenty to get you around in pitch black rooms in the dark without blinding yourself. 115 lumens is perfect for lighting up a dark alley at night should the situation ever arise. I've heard talk that it's a shame this doesn't have a switch/button but I disagree, I like the twist head operation and it can be done easily one handed. The ability to tail stand turns this into a great little side lamp should there be a power cut or something.

Is this too big to be a key ring torch, well it depends. You can get smaller AAA sized lights like the Thrunite Ti series and they are obviously a bit smaller, but not much to be honest. The T10 easily and comfortably fits in a trouser pocket with room to spare and works as an EDC, so why not attach it to your keys. You'd definitely have a powerful key-chain light then. It's an option certainly.

As another reviewer mentioned there are updated models of this light out now like the Saber 1A, but the T10 was still a bit cheaper and I wanted the the longer run times from the battery over a few extra lumens.

Anyway, great light I recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite nice, 4 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As far as these sort of bars go they are OK, maybe a tad too sweet for me but they are low fat and will give you plenty of energy. They are soft and chewy, which is my best kind of bar. They are a bit sticky so if you are out and about and get some on your hands take a wet wipe with you. I notice on the back it says not suitable for peanut, nut, egg and sesame sufferers. I'm starting to notice this more and more on products that don't list those things as ingredients but presumably and made in a factory that does, so they could include traces of those things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Travel shaver, 1 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For the price I can't really find fault with this shaver. You have to charge for 24 hours for the first charge, after that 8 hours will charge the shaver for a 30 minute run time. There's no danger of over charging with this battery type. One benefit of this shaver is it's very lightweight, perfect for travel. Does a good job, but I would only use this as a travel shaver and 30 minutes will see you for a week away I would suggest. If away for longer, take the charger cord with you.

If you need a travel shaver I would definitely recommend this.

ThruNite Archer 2A Flashlight, Cree XP-G2 LED, 272 Lumen, 5 modes, Waterproof to IPX-8

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and useful 2AA torch, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great torch with 5 modes. Runs on 2AA battery which are easy to find and affordable. The modes are firefly, low, medium, high and strobe. Long run times with those lower modes and the top high mode at 272 lumens is very bright. The light tail stands in candle mode and I recently used this torch during a power cut on high mode tail standing and it did the job of a nice bright side lamp. You select the modes by twisting the head and it will stay on the mode you select for next time you switch on the torch.Momentary on is useful for signalling. You also get two spare orings. This is a good price for a decent all purpose rugged torch.


Logitech Z50 Speaker - Grey
Logitech Z50 Speaker - Grey
Price: 17.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent speaker, 25 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a portable speaker, but of course it is wired and has an external power cable. So it's not 'on the go' but take it from room to room. Small enough to travel with at a moments notice in a bag without hassle or size/space considerations. It works with anything that has an earphone jack, so I tested it with my ipod nano and PC. I see no reason why it couldn't work with a radio either so long as it has an earphone out jack. There's no volume on the device you use the volume from the MP3 player or laptop/tablet etc. It's very good, quite a bit of bass.

So It is what it is, a smallish speaker giving you fairly decent sound from a small package. I do quite like this and it is a different option to buying a pair of speakers.
