4.0 out of 5 stars Good razor, 18 Jan. 2011
This is a pretty good razor, in a nutshell! I've transitioned slowly from a wet shave to a Nivea-Philips dry/wet shave to this. The thing I like about it is being able to pick it up and shave while walking around, not being stuck at the mirror. A lot of pressure is not needed, so irritation is reduced compared to my previous shaving methods and the chance of cutting yourself is greatly reduced.

I must admit however that in order to get a very close shave, like you would wet shaving then you have to spend a long time going over every part a fair few times. I've not tried it with shaving foam yet, so this may make it easier.

The razor also holds it's charge very well, so far it has been charged once and is still going 3 weeks later. I also like the reduced frequency of blade changes required compared to my previous razor (every 2 years vs every 1)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these bags!, 3 Jan. 2011
I'm a beginner guitarist and got one of these bags in a beginner set with a Yamaha F310 acoustic and found it brilliant. I got a Washburn WI14 electric for Christmas but the bag was nowhere near as good, so ordered this. I don't have expensive guitars (yet) so these bags are perfect for the value of my equipment.

The padding feels very thick and so far has protected my acoustic through a couple of journeys, while the electric has mainly stayed in the house. The pockets on the bags give you enough room to hold a tonne of accessories, while the chunky zips and handles are extremely robust.

So far, excellent value and highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars 6 different sizes, 3 Jan. 2011
This is a good product at a good price, if you don't care what size pick you use. Nice tactile material which is easy to grip and not slippy. Loses a star as the ink comes off on your fingers...

As a beginner guitarist, this is a good pack for me as it lets me try out picks of different gauges. You get 6 different sizes, from 0.5 - 1.14mm in the pack.

It is also good for people who don't care what size pick they play with, or who use different sizes for different things.

If you like to play using only 1 size pick for everything, then avoid this pack and see if you can find a pack of 6 of the gauge you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and very useful, 3 Jan. 2011
Stylish pick holder that does exactly what it says on the tin. Keeps picks stored safely and can be easily chucked in the case or even stuck to the guitar itself, although I haven't done this myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, 3 Jan. 2011
What more can be said - makes winding strings easy and cuts right down to the tuning post. Well worth the money!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware of iWork conflicting with the trial version, 3 Jan. 2011
So far so good with this software.

The OSX and iLife discs were bought as a backup due to the price of the box set compared to the cost of iWork package on its own.

The iLife (basing this on iLife '11 of course) and iWork software is brilliant - once you get it going. Users will have to be very careful when installing iWork '09 when they have been using the trial version. When I first installed the disc, it conflicted with the trial version and asked for a serial number input which isn't included.

In order to prevent this, all files associated with the trial version must be removed. I can't remember them all off hand, but it is easy to find a list on MacRumours and other forums as this is seemingly a common occurrence.

Once past this, the software is good! Easy to use and (while sometimes annoying) it is compatible with the equivalent versions of Microsoft Office.

All in all, a very good product at a very good price....if it wasn't for the trial version conflict this would get at least 4 stars...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice.....but not a good size, 24 Dec. 2010
The description of the piece is a little misleading

The case is very nice inside with a good size pocket and nice lining...

But - a Les Paul style guitar does not fit. So it doesn't fit most Electric Guitars as the description says!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worthy to be called Call of Duty, 17 Nov. 2010
In a nutshell, after the masterpieces of the two Modern Warfare games, this is a let down. On a whole, it is a decent enough game to play but my expectations have not been met at all when it comes to the Call of Duty franchise.

The campaign is too short, graphics are cartoony and AI allies just get in the way and dont kill anyone. Zombies is a bit rubbish, and Special Ops is missed. The maps on multiplayer are small and uninspired (Nuketown is utter garbage), respawning is insane (respawning in groups of enemies), upgrading weapons is illogical and time consuming and deathstreaks are gone.

Multiplayer is also very inconsistent - you can shoot an enemy 6-7 times and not kill them, then get hit with one shot on the shin and you're dead. And you can be killed by a knife attack from 10 feet away.

Frankly, out of the two developers, Infinity Ward urinate all over Treyarch's chips


JX-10 CARA STAINLESS STEEL
JX-10 CARA STAINLESS STEEL

4.0 out of 5 stars Very, very good, 27 Mar. 2009
The JX10 is an extremely good headset for the price. The sound is good and not crackly, with a strong connection that is easy to set up and will connect automatically on power up once it has been configured.

The only problems are the slightly weak ear loop but the fact that it is supplied with a case prevents most damage. Also, it is i little big for my ears - but my ears are weird so this will probably not be a problem for anyone else.

The headset has a simple button set up allowing easy answering and hanging up as well as re-dialling the top number in the call log.

Overall 4 stars, highly recommended


Ring Automotive RAC150 Digital Tyre Pressure Gauge

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant, 27 Mar. 2009
This tyre gauge does exactly what you want it to do. It gives a quick and accurate pressure reading and is easy to fit onto the valve. There is a solar panel so the battery does not run down quickly and there is a backup for when it does.

The depth gauge is just as easy and accurate, so easy to read and will give a reading all across the tyre.

Every conscious car owner should keep one of these in their car.
