4.0 out of 5 stars Great Stealth game with lots of ways to complete missions, 6 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fairly rigid main mission arc, but with plenty of side missions and styles available.

I prefer a stealth rather than a combat style and this works great.

Good points :
- Stealth or Combat styles both work on most missions
- Multiple ways to approach most missions, e.g. full frontal assault or sneak in the window at the back.
- Early decisions affect later options. Did you search that apartment thoroughly ? if not you wan't be able to use one of the shortcuts later.

Bad points :
- very limited carrying capacity, means you have to pick a couple of weapons and stick to them, and ignore others.
- limited ammo for specialist weapons, e.g. Lancer Rifle.
- Some of the best weapons only available right near the end of the main mission arc, makes them a bit pointless.
- VERY slow loading between locations on the metro

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Statham action movie, 6 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fairly predictable Jason Statham fare, but none the worse for that. Less of the hand-to-hand set pieces than previous films, but still enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Surface Pro 4 docking station, 6 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An improvement over a converter + HDMI cable I was using before that caused Surface Pro 4 to flick between screens when plugging into docking station. This cable doesn't suffer from the flicker.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great torch, but bits fall off too easily., 20 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent quality bright light with a zoom function.
Easy to recharge.

However, the ring at the front that holds in the lens is loose and can drop off. I bought 2 torches and on one of them the ring and lens fell off and were lost on the send day. Since this is not intended to be user-serviceable, it could have been more securely / permanently fixed.

1.0 out of 5 stars You will need your DIY skills and tools to assemble and build it., 20 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beware that the picture looks a lot better than what you get.

When I opened the box and took out the first piece, a shower of rust cam out from the inside of the tubing - not a great first impression.

The large black metal end-piece has pre-drilled holes, but these are in the wrong place, so you will need a good quality metal drill of the right size to drill some new holes before you can install it.

The main handle can connect in 2 ways to the main body which is good, but the clips they provide to stock the handle slipping out are not adjusted correctly, so you will need to bend them with a hammer to stop them falling out when in use.

The small wheels are fiddly to attach, again you will need to have your own tools (spanners) to do this, none are provided in the box.

Overall, it is functional once built, but the design could have been much better. I expected more from a German-built trolley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb viewing and great features, 20 Dec. 2016
I bought this particular model for several reasons :
1. Freesat HD built in with dual tuners. So I can ditch the Freesat HD PVR which was getting a bit old, and reduce the number of boxes.

2. The unit comes with 2 remotes. One is a typical full functioning remote with tons of buttons. There is also a simplified remote for those in the family who don't like lots of buttons and can't learn new stuff (and I like it for being minimalist). Still allows you to get to most things easily, with a bit of navigation.

3. The TV will auto-recognise connected devices. I only have a Bluray box (having ditched the freesat box as above), but having a single remote is great.

4. To use the TV as a PVR and record/pause TV, it allows you to plug in a big USB stick or external HDD for recording. I used a 128GB USB stick for now, but could add a larger USB as they become available, or a larger external USB HDD.

5. Built in Apps such as Amazon Prime let me see online shown without using a separate box.

6. Last but not least, the 4K UHD large screen is much brighter and colours are richer. I am expecting 4K programs to start being produced, though the 4K Blurays are a bit pricy for now.

Setup was easy, though the universal remote didn't initially pair with the TV and needed manual pairing.

This unit has a single cable from the TV to a cables unit where you plug the antennas and HDMI cables into. This has the advantage of fewer cables snaking up to the back of the TV and would allow easier plugging in of new cables once the TV is installed e.g. on a wall or in a cabinet.

Only one negative comment. The cable management isn't great. In the pack are some stick-on cable management clips, but I think they could just have done a bit better. I guess they are trying to provide for a huge number of ways of installing the TV.

1.0 out of 5 stars You will be forced to pay for HP ink cartridges, 26 Sept. 2016
Beware that HP force you to buy their ink cartridges by updating the drivers to mark compatible ink cartridges as "damaged".

So, you will pay £80 per set of cartridges, equivalent to around 5p per sheet.

Don't buy this printer (or any other HP printers unless you are prepared to pay their extortionate prices for ink.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid bracket, 26 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good bracket and looks like it will be secure to hold my small TV. I wanted one with a good reach, so TV can be right against the wall, or out.

4 large screws/bolts are included, suitable for brick walls. If you have partition walls, you'll need different fixings.

There is also a small level device, which just about works to mount the bracket level on the wall.

Bracket is a bit stiff to start with to swivel, but will loosen a bit with use.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lots of shouting and swearing in a professional kitchen does not make a comedy, 22 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Burnt (Blu-ray)
I watched this film because I liked Bradley in American Sniper, but this doesn't make the grade.

Some interesting scenes in the kitchen show some of the intensity of working in a professional kitchen, but this is not a "Comedy" as billed.

The film tries to do cover too much ground, and so a lot of things are skipped over.
The "Seven Samurai" recruitment part (as explained in the additional material) is OK, but again, none of the characters have their past developed to any signficant degree.

Chef from 2014 does a much better job of combining cooking and comedy.
