5.0 out of 5 stars Wow..., 6 Dec 2012

Mario in HD is something everybody needs to experience. This game is crisp, beautiful and vibrant in colour and graphics. Gameplay is divided into challenge type mini games that include speed runs (very fun - and I find helps improve your gameplay ability) and the regular story mode. It's worth noting that even after all these years, and using the same foes Nintendo continues to provide unique level design. The real beauty of this game (and those before it) is the level of difficulty. It walks a fine line between being easy for a beginner who takes their time, and being quite difficulty for a veteran who wants to get through levels very quickly and with all coins/not being hit. Simply brilliant game.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm impressed, 6 Dec 2012

Lot's of people commenting around the web that this controller feels cheap. The mistake these people are making is thinking heavy = good quality. The controller is light, which prevents fatigue and promotes ease of use. It's durable, quality, well moulded plastic. Glossy on the front which looks great, albeit attracting finger marks. The back is a more matt rough surface to prevent scratches whilst being placed down. It's obviously modelled on PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers but improves upon those quite considerably by moving an analogue stick, this is in my opinion the best console control in existence. It comes with a USB charging wire but will operate wireless which is to be expected. Word has it headphones must be plugged into the game pad and not the controller, not an issue for me. Obviously this controller is aimed at the regular gaming market and as such is aimed at only certain games, don't expect to play Mario with this thing it just isn't intended for that. That could be its main drawback but will depend on your opinions, for me I like the exclusivity of having controllers for different purposes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Absolute disgrace., 14 Feb 2012
To be blunt this printer is a disgrace. The software that is supplied with it constantly annoys the user and does far too much.

Once one colour of ink is gone its IMPOSSIBLE to print, even with the other colour only until you buy more ink. Kodak links are pasted all over the place in the software trying to get you to buy this ink.

At printing and scanning it does the job but nothing special, hence it gets 2 stars.

In the context of this price bracket these are a brilliant pair of headphones. So far they perform well regardless of what I throw at them. Build quality is excellent also. No problems at all here.

Firstly this glue isn't a 'toy' as listed. It's used with plastics like Airfix kits and tabletop gaming models. I've used these glues for years and the accuracy achieved with the long nozzle is fantastic. It also ensures a controlled amount of glue reaches the target area which prevents wastage and mess. It's a vastly superior application method than every single other glue of this type i've used. The price is good when compared against stuff like Citadel branded glues, although you can get basic tubes of this glue (like a little tube of toothpaste) for under a pound in some shops. The only drawback is that the lid can sometimes get stuck on when the nozzle isn't clean and empty.

Very pleased with this product. It has a good quality metal finish and very easy to operate mechanism for changing blades. Comming with 5 blades is also nice. The beauty of this product is it's simplicity and ease of use. For the price it's a very good option even compared against more expensive products.

4.0 out of 5 stars What can i say? Wow..., 4 Feb 2011

I'm not one of those people thats just going to give a 5 star review without any thought, or on a whim. The Kindle isn't perfect, but definetly deserves a good review. I think 4 stars is justified. As a reading device the Kindle is incredibly good, there really isn't anything wrong in this regard. The only slight niggle is a slight annoyance in the way it reads PDF's, the D pad is clunky if your zoomed in. The internet feature also has its issues but in fairness is still in testing. I still don't think the range of features available justifies 5 stars. The rest thats available are fantastic though. Considering the price its a very good buy, although the Amazon branded covers are a total rip off.
