5.0 out of 5 stars Great disc quality giving great steering of sound and picture quality, 23 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first movie of this Snowwhite/Hunstman and for me the best..but my review is on the disc presentation itself...I reviewed the one later (3D version) and it's not a patch off this one for the sound and picture quality...This disc had great picture quality and ran at 34mbs throughout giving great detail and crispness....The sound also was great..letting you know where the characters were and action going on at any time...even behind you...the steering was excellent...it also offered great depth of bass and clarity...in other words, a thoroughly enjoyable movie for picture and sound...Cheers

3.0 out of 5 stars The 3D Could have and Should have been made a lot better, 23 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My review is on the disc litself and not the movie,but I would like to mention I personally thought the first one was better...As to the disc itself..I bought the 3D version/Bluray as I love my 3D capability...however...it was quite dissapointing in ths area...The use of the 3D was quite poor and they had lots of opportunity to use it throughout the movie,but the producers missed it...I can't say if it was shot in 3D...but even so they could have made it much better in after production if it wasn't....The picture quality was very good,even in the standard Bluray...sharp,clear and good colour...the sound was nothing to shout about though and I found the steering very shallow and not much pressence to the actual sound...a bit on the thin side I would say..and I had to do some upscaling on my amp to get it to sound good...I've never done this before with my other movies...and I have a LOT....hence my 3 star rating...Don't get me wrong...if your prepared to jiggle around with your set up for good deep surround sound then go for it...it's an enjoyable romp but nothing to shout about...Cheers

4.0 out of 5 stars Great set of drills for the money, 23 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These SDS drills are not bad for the money...they seem to be quite well made.My one star knock off was due to the smaller of the drills being slightly wobbly.(so maybe 4 and a half stars would do)..I could try and tap it straight but I don't want to risk it, and it wasn't worth sending them back just for the one...I did however try them All out on a slab made from the granite bits, and they made short work of going through...although I did have to pilot a hole for the 25mm one....Going through oridinary house bricks on the other hand was no problem even for the largest drill (no pilot hole needed)...I actually used my recently bought Terratek rotary hammer drill and these suited the drill just fine...So to sum up...Great drills for a great price...and deliver too very quickly...Recommeded seller

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for Induction hobs and no smears., 23 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought a new induction hob and I wanted to make sure it was kept clean...Yes there are simpler and less expensive methods of a home remedy type,but to be honest they are not as effective as this brilliant cleaner...It Really does do what it says on the bottle..Most people cook on a daily basis and a quick wipe over will clean the hob tops,but for those deeper clean times the Welco cleans away any greasy marks and leaves no smears once buffed up,plus it leaves a protective film to make cleaning even easier when the time comes...Now I'm not saying to use it EVerytime...maybe once a week will suffice..probably moreso on an induction hob as you really don't get burnt on mess like Ceramic hobs...I will have to mention...the intructions on the bottle are very crude and nowhere on the bottle does it mention to buff off the light cream...Why,I have no idea,because you do have to buff off, and for best results use a Good micro fibre cloth, it's fantastic...It appears it will go a long way even with moderate use, but even so, I can highly recommend this product for a shiny new look on your Induction hob.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very sturdy traditional carpet stretcher at a good price, 18 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to do some carpet laying and what a great tool it is...It's very well made and very sturdy...I like the fact it has the Spike footing and not those jagged teeth like the others...it's made like the traditional type...and they are replaceable too...You may not have any adjustment on the length of the main body...but you don't need it in my opinion...Push down...ram with your knee and that's it...Simple..The pad is a little on the hard side ..but I guess my knees are on the soft soft side now...I'll put it down to old age (62..lol)..but it's firm enough so you can give it a good clout...There are more expensive ones out there but don't waste your money...this will do any carpet laying job you might tackle.

What a great Wi-Fi extender... and the speed is good too...I have 2 of these around the house (one outside in the Summer house) and they boost the signal from the main unit very well indeed...The unit was very easy to set up and the lights give you the usual information of when it's working or something is connected...There is also a lan port situated underneath for hard wiring should you need it..Highly recommended..Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Great idea if they suit your car, 14 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well made between seat storage...I saw these advertised and thought what a great idea for that area where nick knacks always seem to drop down and you loose or just can't reach..and they can be useful also and are just deep enough to hold a mobile phone..disabled disc.well any number of small flat items..but they also act as a catch trap for those items that might accidentally fall out of your pockets when you get into the car seat...

One thing I noticed was...it might not suit all seats in cars due to a few issues so check first...such as...the gap might not be wide enough (rare occasion)..Seat belt latch might be to forward making the seat gap filler protrude past the front of the seat...The gap might be too wide (again,a rare occasion)..If you adjust your seat a lot it might cause wear and tear on the seat...apart from these small points give them a go...I put mine in place ( A VW golf 2016) and they haven't moved and they are very discreet also..

I'm happy with them for a tenner delivered and I'm sure you will be too..Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun movie and in 3D too, 14 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My review is about the disc itself and not the movie...although, I will say I love these type of films...just a casual watch but love to see great steering of sound and great movie action, and this disc has it all.

The picture in 3D was great,especially at the beginning and the end of the movie...the in between parts were good also but just subtle enough so as not to spoil the effect when it did happen...too much can wear a bit thin and your eyes begin not to notice the 3D as much..The sound had great steering and the affects were placed just right from left to right...so if you just want a movie romp with great 3D look no further...Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Great SDS drill kit for the enthusiast at a great price., 9 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd like to begin by saying thank you to those that answered my questions about this product before I decided to purchase it..such as the weight of the drill itself (which by the way is 12lbs) and the size of the drills that come with the set up (those are 1/4..3/8..and 1/2).

As soon as I received the drill ...which was super quick by the way...I put it to the test by demolishing a 2'x 1' slab made with hard core pieces..I drilled a series of holes first which was a breeze to do..and then I set to trying the chisel action and proceeded to break the mini slab up ...and once again the drill and chisel bits made short work of this..The secret to chiselling is to let the drill do the work for you..(.Don't push hard as this will force a lot of pressure on the motor and maybe cause damage)... and you will find it does a superb job as others have said.The absorption handle did a nice job of protecting my wrist from shock when hammer drilling and chiselling which for me was a boon as I have arthritis in my wrists...I actually purchased the drill to do a job in hand, so I went to work on that...I had a plastic tube to run through my garage wall from the outside and I already had a 22mm SDS drill bit 400mm ready for the job, and this went through a double brick and mini breeze block with total ease and the drill itself never even got warm..Job Done !!..I was very pleased with the results especially for the cost of the drill and set itself..

I do have one slight niggle...the case it comes in is more of a gratuity case then a sturdy one...don't get me wrong...it houses everything, and everything fits neatly away ..but it is cheaply made and care should be taken if you intend to throw it around on site...but for general home use it should be fine.The drill itself is very well made from what I can see and the operation of changing the drill bits and settings are straight forward,(just read the manual if unsure).The drill bits that come with it are 'ok' but have a slight wobble (well mine did) but you can always upgrade to a better set if needed.What I did like was having a SDS chuck with chuck key to be able to use ordinary straight shank drill bits...that may be a bit excessive to use a drill of this size...but it's there to use...Only time will tell how long the drill will perform and last,but so far it's looking promising.

For the money and what you get it's a great buy and should give you years of service ..I can recommend this to any DIY'er and maybe those that have a small business..it seems robust enough to tackle the jobs intended with ease..Cheers
