Gigabyte GM-M6800 Dual Lens Gaming Mouse by Gigabyte
2.0 out of 5 stars Not a gaming mouse, 5 Feb 2014
If you play any multiplayer games this mouse is not for you.

It is not a smooth experience. The weight is too light (here, judge for yourself, it's 90 grams), the materials on the bottom not good enough. The mouse wheel occasionally snags, sometimes causing a mouse3 button press by itself, and worse still the cursor movement (in programs, not physically) even 'snags' - both in Windows and in games.

You will be aiming-up a shot and the mouse can suddenly either hold you back or jump slightly. Frustrating enough when you're losing, even more so to have potentially game-changing moments ruined by your mouse. And it makes you look bad.

The cursor can even judder… Read more

That laptop pocket looks good doesn't it? A little red puffa jacket for your computer, resting on a bluish pillow.

There's only the standard padding parallel to the straps, for your comfort, that most backpacks have unless they're dirt cheap. Why couldn't they pad the whole back? Inexplicably anything in the little top front pocket will have more padding than your laptop.

An additional protective sleeve may help, good chance it won't fit in as well though.

It does fit a 16.4" Vaio VPCF11M1E, which is 387.2mm wide,… Read more

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is a kind of merging between a dictionary and encyclopaedia, but it works very well. You might think some of the entries are too short or simplified, but it is very informative for all that, often going into some detail to explain the term and put it in historical and Christian context.

The relative shortness easily brings things to your attention that you can research elsewhere, so it's a very handy reference that's not too heavy to stop a happily lazy and serendipitous time flicking through the pages.

My mother has a much greater knowledge of Christianity than me, this hasn't let her down yet, and has informed her of some things she was unaware of, and it… Read more
