4.0 out of 5 stars Great if slightly familiar, 14 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oasis (Amazon Video)
Intriguing and very well acted with top quality production values. Hoping it's not going to turn out to be derivative as there are already undertones of Fortitude and Contact but I'd definitely continue watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great wire-free phones with plenty of bass, 11 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with these. The wire's just the right length to go round the back of my thick neck, the controls are fully compatible with my Android phone and the sound is clear as a bell and as bassy as you could want from a pair of 20 quid earphones. Only complaint would be they're a nightmare to pair (I had to reset mine twice following the instructions I got by e-mail after mine were despatched) and you have to hold the function button down for over three seconds to turn them off and on (a switch would've been better). Apart from that, great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the bedroom or kitchen, love the voice controls for music and plugs., 7 Dec. 2016

This review is from: Amazon Echo, Black (Electronics)
A superb bit of tech, does exactly what I expected. It's not got the lovely bass of a Sonos speaker but it's still a much better solution for my bedroom.

Shiny, shiny shoes, exactly what I wanted, toe is very pointy but that's not a bad thing. Good fit, quality not bad for the price but don't imagine they'll last a lifetime either.

4.0 out of 5 stars No expectations = no disappointment. One of a kind., 20 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Man's Sky (PS4) (Video Game)
Sometimes you just have to go with your gut and ignore the negatives. No Man's Sky is a breathtaking, inventive, frustrating and potentially life-eating game. Think Destiny without the endless pointless shootouts, think Assassin's Creed before it turned into an RPG, and don't expect anything more than what the game purports to be. It's an offline one-person exploration game and all the better for not being massively multiplayer. I'm only a couple of planets in but am sold. Definitely worth a shot if you go in with no expectations, which I think is why it's attracted a lot of criticism from the pre-order crew (who buys games full-price anyway?!)

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible screen response, crashing apps, 13 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought one budget phone that had very little internal memory, I tried this one as it has an impressive 16GB. Unfortunately, I've swapped one set of problems for another. The X6 Pro has terrible touch problems, to the extent that I was regularly typing completely incorrect words and had to very carefully place my fingers on apps and keys. The screen was almost unresponsive at times despite changing Mouse settings as advised. It also kept crashing some of my must-have apps like Sonos and Facebook for no reason. In addition, the Bluetooth connection with my car was problematic, with Google Play Music never starting up first time when I got in the car (I had to disconnect Bluetooth and reconnect to get any sound. All in all, even more of a disaster than my £70 Wiko phone. Returned within 24 hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't even hesitate, just buy one., 30 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been considering "going Google" for a while after having moved back to Android phones and am already very familiar with Google Docs and Inbox so the move to Chromebook from Windows wasn't a great leap. I'm so fed up with Windows and Apple machines (of which I've owned many over the years) seizing up after just a few months of use and then having to constantly reset them. You don't get any of that with a Chromebook, but of course you wouldn't, because this is basically a laptop with just one program running: a decent browser. If you're expecting anything else, this is not for you. Having said that, as most of us use tablets and PCs these days for web-based services from banking to facebook, I'm surprised Chromebooks haven't taken over the world.

The Acer is a Chromebook 11. It has a funky all-white design that feels extremely light and can easily be carried in a bag. The plastic casing is no more cheap-feeling than the old Macbooks and the screen is clear and bright. It really does boot up in seconds (in fact you don't need to turn it off ever in which case it opens almost immediately where you left off). The battery has now lasted me two full days of work and play and it's still saying 6 hours left.

There's not much else to say apart from if you're familiar with Chrome and Google's online products, you'll be able to make the most of this. I am also using it for work and they have Microsoft everything, and the online versions of Word and Excel work fine (and they're free!). Don't hesitate. At the cost of a small mid-range phone this is a complete bargain and can make you very productive very quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tasteful, artistic and professional looking, 20 Feb. 2016

A really tasteful selection of scenes that goes very well on my office wall. Easy to apply and well made enough to stick without any peeling I've had from cheaper stickers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality, better than the originals!, 20 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only thing wrong with the Misfit Flash is the terrible quality strap and these very much fill that gap. For such a reasonable price you get 6 replacement straps in great colours that are remarkably better made than the Misfit ones, and fasten securely holding the Flash neatly in place. This and a handful of clips (who actually uses these?). Great!
