5.0 out of 5 stars The Dog's Dangly Bits, 30 Jan. 2015
This is a cracking bit of kit so far - I am using it with Forza 5 - with force feed back set at 40% and the wheel turning angle at 270 degrees - this simulates the actual driving a car feel perfectly for me - the motors work extremely smoothly without any noise other than a cooling fan which can activate if the wheel is used with max force feed back over extended periods of use - but with the above settings the fan does not kick in when am using it for say 1 hour's continual use - it transforms Forza for me into an virtual actual driving experience - my lap times are now slightly longer but this does not bother me in the slightest - as I now concentrate on improving my driving ability / technique and I am sure that that my times will improve as I progress - the mounting / clamping system is excellent - my X box is linked to a computer monitor so my wheel is attached to a very solid desk / proprietary shelving module which I built myself which is perfect for mounting the unit - I am a big amazon fan but on this occasion I bought my wheel from the BT web site for £219 and I am delighted with the purchase - I will update if wheel malfunctions but so far after 2 weeks it is still operating beautifully - it's the dog's dangly bits as they say.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Product, 1 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have struggled with Green Water now for 2 years, my UV filter has failed to clear it .

I have now replaced all my filter materials with this Polywool and in just 4 days the water is now almost completely clear, I am delighted and

I would recommend this material to any one who wants amazing "polished" water results.

I would point out that this is not a foam as such, it is stranded wool, but having said that it is very strong and I am sure it will give years of service.

However if you buy this 1mx1mx70mm size you should have plenty left for future use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow Fantastic Build Quality, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great item of furniture in its own right and it is spot on for showing off your TV to boot
However due to its tapering nature, as others have pointed out, it will only house a limited amount of kit.
It will easily accommodate say a PVR and a Blue-ray player, but a large AV system is unlikely to fit into the unit as well .
Bearing this in mind I have no reservations in awarding 5 stars to this corner unit, it is truly a thing of beauty and a great show case for your TV.

4.0 out of 5 stars HDMI Cable Up Grade for Your X BOX 1 Consule, 8 Dec. 2013
If you love your X Box 1 as much as I do and you want it to perform even better with Forza 5 and get more vibrant colours - even shinier cars - more detail even on the balloons and helicopters, then order yourself an IBRA High Speed Gold Red 1.4a HDMI Cable 2160p Ultra HD today for the ridiculously cheap price of £7.95(2m long) - for my full review see this item on Amazon under 'newest first revues'- Don't let anyone try and tell you that all HDMI cables have the same performance capabilities - I have found out it simply isn't true - get this cable now !!!!!!

This does exactly what it says on the tin - I should have bought one years ago - it transforms all non serrated knives back to their original new 'sharpness' condition - great value and so easy to use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bring your X Box 1 to Life, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading about HDMI cables being all the same regarding their performance capabilities, I still decided to take a punt with this cable, as so many people have praised it.

I can only say that this cable has transformed my X Box images using the Forza 5 game.

There has been an improvement in every area - deeper more vibrant colours - the cars are even shinier - images are more detailed even the balloons / helicopters are more defined etc.

My X Box is connected to my computer monitor therefore I am viewing close to the screen so I can be very objective regarding any quality improvements.

All I would say is that Microsoft should have included this HDMI cable with their very expensive console so that we the customer can get maximum performance / enjoyment from the console when using it.

I would recommend any discerning person who wants to get maximum quality images from their X Box to buy one of these cable today, you won't regret it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff from Rosmary Clooney, 30 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fine collection of her work and the reproduction quality is second to none,unlike some of the other discs in this series of questionable "remaster enhancements". It is well worth every penny and a very worthwhile addition to anyone's CD collection.
