5.0 out of 5 stars Retro classic glasses at a great price!, 10 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone familiar with Ray Ban glasses will agree that the glasses themselves do not really need reviewing. Simply put, they are some of the best fashion sunglasses you can get. Due to this popularity and iconic look, it has meant there are many, many fake glasses available and they are getting harder to spot all the time. With all this in mind, this review will focus on just a couple of points:-

1. Are the glasses real or fake?

A. The glasses I got were 100% real. It should be noted however that I purchased mine through Amazon as the seller. I can not speak for the other seller options as they ship direct and Amazon are not responsible for checking this items. So if you are not choosing Amazon as the seller, you may want to check the seller feedback or buy them direct from Ray Ban if you are unsure how to check for fakes and don't want to take a chance.

If you are worried about getting fakes, there are few simple checks you can make yourself.

* The easiest and most accurate way to test them is to weigh them. No videos showing fakes ever suggest this, not sure why. A 50mm lens size pair of black wayfarer glasses with G15 lenses will weigh exactly 45 grams. A fake pair will be lighter, due to the absence of metal support frames.

* The left lens (as you are wearing them) should have a small "RB" logo, laser cut into the glass. This is not etched, so if you can feel it with your finger, it's not right.

* The angle of the front frame has an aggressive slant towards the bottom of the eye. If you open the glasses and put them on a flat service and look at them side on. If the lenses are at a 90% angle straight down, they're not right.

* Hold frame up to a VERY bright light source. You should be able to see a metal bar frame inside the arms of the glasses. The plastic will also have a deep purple colour.

* Check the case. It should not have red lining inside. It should also have an engraved "Ray Ban" logo on the pop button.

There are loads of videos on youtube comparing fakes to real glasses, so you should be able to watch these and tell real ones from fakes.

2. Size options

A. The glasses are available as two sizes. "Medium" and "One Size". I found this a bit odd as "one size" would suggest to me that the glasses are one size fits all. This is not the case. The "one size" refer to the 54mm lens size and these do not also come in the classic iconic square style frame, but a more rounded frame. If you want the iconic and traditional 50's style ones, chose the medium size which come with the 50mm lenses.

3. Lens options

A. Simple. There are no lens options available here. They come with the standard Ray Ban G15 dark "green" lenses. These are very dark and block about 85% of sunlight. Perfect for very sunny conditions. Ray Bans come with lots of options for lesses including colours and polarised. If you want something more specific, these won't do for you.

To sum up, I got these for £75 which is a £50 saving buying them direct from Ray Ban. As these were the size and lens options I wanted, I thought it a great deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have Xbox One title!, 1 July 2014
I had the 360 version of this game and completed the game. At the time, I thought it was a fun, if somewhat dated shooter (due to having to push the button to pick up ammo and health etc). I was left feeling it was good and fun but not a great game. All this changed when I traded in my 360 for the XBOX ONE and got this game with the bundle. The XB1 version is so superior in almost everyway (graphics, sound, gameplay), that you could be mistaken in thinking they are two different games.

I was instantly hooked on the XB1 version and emmerced into the game at a much higher level. Even the pickup system makes more sense now as you can decide what you pick up and when to offer a tatical advantage later in the level. My only minor gripe is that when looking for the many, many collectables, if you pass the level at a certain point, you can not backtrack and look further. This of course means you will have to replay to find it. Seeing as you are bound to play the missions again and again, its not a major sticking point.

Also, with people saying the game does not run as the same level as PS4, it DOES! It is 1080 with 60fps. Read this article for for information:

No doubt, this means DOOM will also be a 1080/60fps - which will be awesome!

So far, very impressed with this as a multi platform offering. Can't wait to see some of the XB1 games made exclusively for the system to see how far the games can go!

1.0 out of 5 stars Caught on fire, 8 Dec. 2013
Had this microwave for about a year. It got little use and was always kept clean. It looks great and performed well. The other day, it caught on fire for no reason and the door melted. Very unhappy with this dangerous product. Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awsome!, 21 May 2008
This review is from: Ecko Men's Phranz-Dragon (Apparel)
I got these shoes as I liked the design. I am happy to say that the quality of the shoes is great and they are so comftable, I have not had any rubbing or blisters since wearing them and even had a six mile walk the first day I got them, My feet were not sore at all when I got home. They also have a nice wide toe section for people with wide feet, like me!

They are class all the way and I have had loads of attention since wearing them and everyone I know loves them!

I will be buying this brand of shoes from now on!
