5.0 out of 5 stars Not a real Sony charger but still works 100%, 4 July 2014

Whilst perhaps not a legitimate Sony charger it still does the job like a real Sony charger! Had it several months and still works fine. Would recommend to all as a cheaper way of buying a charger

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality box set at reasonable price too, 4 July 2014
I A very good box set of miniatures. Excellent detail on figures. Variety of options of weapons/heads etc. Very cleanly cut/manufactured. I actually used these as part of a total conversion to warhammer fantasy empire great swords and state troopers; worked a treat and are comparatively the right size. Box set so good made me want to start collecting a civil war army!

5.0 out of 5 stars two great films for the price of one!!, 14 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Taken / Man On Fire [DVD] (DVD)
If your looking at this product then you have probable seen one or other of the films, and if your really lucky then both!
Or perhaps you haven't seen either and are looking for something new? Then I say to you look no further!
These are both fantastic films with Liam Neeson and Denzel Washington at their acting finest.
Both have great action/thriller scenes throughout and you will find yourselves immersed in the story of the characters taking every step with them as the plot begins to thicken.

A true must buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should have one!, 14 Jan. 2011
Great little product with multiple heat settings you get to choose from at your discretion. There is even a automatic shut off after (10 hours I believe) to help the forgetful amongst us from burning our houses down.
I suggest turning your blanket on 45-60 mins before getting into bed, that way the blanket has fully heated up and your bed is as warm as can be. Then if you want you can set it to whatever temperature you like to keep you warm throughout the night.
There is a extra bundle of wires at the foot of the blanket to keep your feet nice and snug which is great.

And then the unspeakable happens, a little kid throws up all over your bed and your nice new underblanket...NO PROBLEM! this is a WASHABLE fleece after all right? CORRECT. this product was easy as pie to clean and is still working perfectly and smell free.

The only thing I would take away from this product is that whilst it definitely is perfect for one person you wont fit two lying down on it as it isn't that big. If you need a double then remember this is for a single bed fleece and great for that only, no doubles. Also if your lucky enough to be a giant at 6ft something ridiculous this might be a tad small for you so don't disappoint yourself and just get the next size up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic game in its own right, 14 Jan. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This add on/extension is probably the best expansion/DLC of a game I have ever played.
The fact that this game is Red Dead Redemption's offspring takes nothing away from a game that could have made it in the gaming world even if the original game hadn't been made. In other words whilst this game will get those of us who played the original game virtually jumping in our seats every time a familiar face from the original game comes along, you don't have to be a red dead veteran to enjoy playing this game and you certainly aren't missing out on any story or plot in the game if you haven't played red dead before. In fact this game is so good you will probably want to buy the original anyway!

So what of the game itself you ask. Well the story picks up with John Marston (that's you) finally enjoying life with his family...but that wouldn't make much of a game would it now. So without giving too much away you have to now find a cure for your family who of course have become "infected" themselves. After a few minutes of playing you soon realise that there a heck of a lot more undead/infected than your pistol and shotgun can handle (which is all the weapons you get to start off with).
And this for me is one of the best points of the game; to kill or not to kill? Every group of undead/infected you come across will get you asking yourself do I really have enough ammunition to take these guys on and still have enough for what might be waiting for me around the corner? Whilst ammunition is tight at the beginning of the game, there are enough undead corpses to loot (once you have scored a head-shot on them of course, ammunition from crates you find from saving towns, and ammunition from completing missions and rescuing fellow survivors.

There is also a fantastic range of weapons to be found and earned throughout the game;
head-shots aren't enough? try the blunderbuss to explode your enemies apart
like a bit of long range accuracy? try the sniper rifle
Like to get up close and personal? have a go with the sawn off shotgun
or perhaps its undead carnage on a mass scale your after? why not take the forts cannon for spin

This game caters for every gun totting hero's desires.
Or perhaps its speed that your after, the wind in your hair, sun on your back, and burning undead under the hooves of 'war': your very own horse of the apocalypse! In fact there are four horses of the apocalypse to find out there in the wild west, assuming you can wrangle them with your trusty lasso of course. Big foot even makes an appearance and there are rumours of a unicorn running wild through the land...but can you find him?!

Apart from these massively fun features, the games campaign or story mode is solid and makes for great playing, utilises cut scenes in all the right places. This should take about 6-8 hours to complete but longer if you enjoy freeing towns and rescuing fellow survivors along your travels.

The multi player in this game is rock solid as well, so why not try holding back the undead hordes for as long as you can with your chums. Or go in for a bit of horse racing or gambling.

Please note this is a DLC and does not contain the original game red dead redemption.

Buy. Play. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT genuine Dell product but works perfectly anyway, 14 Jan. 2011
Please note that this is NOT a genuine Dell product so if your reason for buying was the title of the product then think again.
However if your reason for buying is to buy a working adapter power supply for your laptop which is miles cheaper than buying from Dell then this is the product for you!
Another thing is that the length of the wire/cord is shorter than the original dell charger. However it is still a good length but you just wont get as far away from a power socket as I did originally.
I bought this charger for my inspiron dell 6400 and it works perfectly. I also tried it on an inspiron 1525 laptop and it works 100% on that too.

- shorter cable length
- NOT genuine dell despite advertisement as such
+ works 100%
+ is lightweight, much lighter than my original charger
+ MUCH cheaper than buying from Dell themselves
+ a good seller very fast delivery
+ the perfect replacement laptop adapter

5.0 out of 5 stars TRULY amazing game, 16 May 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Before saying anything else I want to say that this game is played through STEAM. There is no fee to join STEAM and there is no monthly subscription it is all FREE, but you do need to download STEAM before playing the game (downloading doesn't take long and installs when you try to install the game). I know others are giving reviews of 1 star because of STEAM but I honestly haven't had any problems with it myself and it does not disrupt game play. I understand where they come from with the corporate hating but it doesn't take anything away from the brilliance of the game itself.

Anyway about the game itself. A lot of people have been saying that Napoleon is the game that Empire total war should have been, which is very true although Empire was enjoyable even if very flawed. Genuinely the only bone I have to pick with Napoleon is that with the infantry units only the front rank will fire and reload (until killed). However historically (at least in the British army) two or three ranks would take it in turn to fire. However this flaw does not seemingly lessen the damage dealt by unit firing and a great satisfaction can be had for effectively mowing down weaker units. Everything else about the game is frankly perfect.
The individual units shouting things (letting you know their desperation as there mates die next to them) is part of a long line of tiny effects that will engross you in the game:
Morale on units is very realistic, cannons shake the ground as they fire, units form square to repel cavalry, generals inspire and rally troops, light infantry units ACTUALLY WORK and will do there little job of skirmishing whilst kneeling, very realistic relative unit abilities for example the British infantry unit is superior to the Russian in accuracy etc. In general I think Empire TW just plain did not work in its battles on land and sea, whereas Napoleon is just epic!

Campaigns are very good too. AI is greatly improved but of course can never be perfect. Diplomacy is very important and works well. New technologies that shape the game. You can play the historical French campaigns in Egypt, Italy and yes Europe, to even Waterloo. You can also play as the allies against France. The game is more focused on Europe, taking away Africa but giving you more individual regions.

Overall this is a great game, if you are a total war fan like me you will love this, and if you are not and are new to all this then there has never been a better time to get addicted since Napoleon has become ONE OF the best Total war games, and the best game of its genre out there to date!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 27 Nov. 2009
This review is from: The Israelites (Hardcover)
very neat product.
i bought this for the course I was studying at University and this book was perfect. It is ideal for uni level information and sources but it is also great for the casual reader as well as it doesn't just jump into the thick of it but takes you through the history of the Israelites in an easily understandable way.
The book makes good use of diagrams and pics to give you detailed information.
There is also a good bibliography for anyone who is further interested in the subject
a trusted author, well written, perfect
Chapters are:
1 Geography
2 Origins
3 History
4 Social structure and gov
5 town planning and architecture
6 agriculture
7 Industries and crafts
8 trade and economic system

1.0 out of 5 stars please read!, 27 Nov. 2009
Let me make it clear from the beginning that this product gets a 5 star, cause it is a fantastic product, SUPER fast and easy drag and drop system of backing up files and storing your stuff.
The reason for the 1 star is to get attention as although the product says it is 320 GB, it is in fact 298GB (where that memory has gone i do not know but it is not software related as you dont have to install anything to use this product just plug in and play (another great thing about the product). Now im no techy but even after asking friends, google etc there appears to be no explanation for the missing memory. Which was why I contacted the seller THREE times and didnt get any replies.

So GREAT GREAT GREAT product, fast transfer speed, plug in and go system, drag and drop = super simple and fast. BUT just be carefull that you will get about 300GB not 320GB and a v poor seller customer service if something does go wrong
