2.0 out of 5 stars Barely fits a Nexus 5 in the circular air vents ..., 13 Oct. 2015

This review is for the Airframe+
Barely fits a Nexus 5 in the circular air vents of a Seat Ibiza. If you try with a larger phone it can't fit at all.


Guild Wars: Edge of Destiny
Guild Wars: Edge of Destiny
by J. Robert King
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written, 17 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reading this book feels like reading descriptions from a wiki. There's too much repetition - most of the book is "they went here and did this, then did that". This is a letdown after the first book - it was simply written but it was fun and engaging. The writing also flowed much better.

I agree with another review on here that said this was an okay book for children since they aren't likely to have read better offerings in the genre. Maybe consider buying it for your children if they play the game and have read the first and third books. I'd avoid this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3rd party adapters are a better choice, 17 Dec. 2013

Does what it needs to but the price is unreasonable, especially when reliable 3rd party adapters do the same at under half price. It should have been included with XL units to start with.


Nintendo Handheld Console 3DS XL - Silver/Black (Nintendo 3DS)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great handheld, 17 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Note: Remember to order a charger with your 3DS XL if you don't already have one from a 3DS or DSi! The official one is around £7 and good 3rd party chargers are in the £3-5 range.

I bought the Silver version of the 3DS XL because it reminded me of the original DS colour scheme. Like the DS before it, the 3DS has a lot of variety in terms of games - racing, flying, fighting, 3rd person action, sports, turn based tactics and role playing - with many more odd and creative games available through the eShop (the online Nintendo store).

At the time of writing there are around 10-20 Great games (number depends on the genres you like) out for the 3DS system, with a lot of Good games that can be had for cheap if you hunt around. I recommend the usual Mario and Zelda games and jRPGs such as Bravely Default if you like those; definitely check out the eShop too.

About the actual console: The XL has a more ergonomic shape than the original 3DS, larger screens mean you don't need to hold up the console to your face and the 3D effect is more pronounced. Surprisingly, battery life is also slightly better. The XL also comes with a 4GB card instead of the standard 2GB.
On the other hand, even though the XL screens are larger, the resolution is the same on both the 3DS XL and the 3DS so there is more pixelation, the 3DS easier to carry because it is smaller, and it is cheaper.

If you don't care about 3D or have children (who may also end up breaking the hinge and/or tearing off the top screen), you may want to consider the 2DS which is cheaper than both of the clamshell designs.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good soap box, 17 Dec. 2013

Simple-looking soap box that closes snugly and has no problems holding larger bars of soap. Reasonable price for a bit of plastic. Can't say much else.

...and you get 10 of them! These holders are durable and the plastic is thin enough to let you scan your ID without taking it out.

Bought this 5 years ago to use with an old card reader that couldn't read the shorter (now standard) Memory stick Pro Duos. Still works today.


Sharkoon Silent Eagle 1000 Fan (120x120x25)
Sharkoon Silent Eagle 1000 Fan (120x120x25)
Price: £6.20

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price., 3 Sept. 2013

This review is for the 120mm 1000rpm version of the fan.

I bought 2 of these to replace the fans that came with my PC case (their bearings had worn out, time will tell how long the Sharkoons last).
I like the simple contrasting colour scheme. Included with each fan are 4 screws, 4 rubber mounts and an adapter/extender that lets you plug the fan into a 4-pin Molex PSU cable and effectively doubles the fan cord length you can work with.

Only negative so far is something other reviews have mentioned - the fans aren't really quiet, they just sound like standard fans. Not a problem for me since my case is padded but will be a noise concern for others.
