5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and doesn't rotate, 25 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very sturdy and more than capable of lifting a cake without bending. The handle is nice a big so it doesn't rotate when you're lifting. It comes in a comically large box and apparently has a 2 year guarantee.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring padding in the middle and no ending, 25 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book starts fairly well but once the middle section starts it becomes incredibly slow, boring and repetitive. The author clearly started this book with the intention of making it a trilogy; however, in most trilogies, each book is a standalone story as well. In this case, the book as a decent beginning, a very long middle and almost no ending. I skipped through several chapters in the middle because it became tedious and found I hadn't missed anything. More than half of the book is about the character Ben Ryder having self doubts. It goes on and on with each chapter the same as the last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks ridiculous, 13 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my girlfriend and it looks utterly ridiculous and naff but she loves it so that makes it a good product. Protection is good and it has a nice, slightly grippy feel. It's also flexible and easy to take off yet holds the phone very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Probably best so far for S7 but not perfect, 13 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually buy tempered glass screen protectors but as these aren't available on the S7 due to the slight curvatures at the edges I went for these Taken ones. The packaging it comes in looks fantastic and feels very premium. When you look at the protectors themselves, they do have a slight curvature at the edges which matches the phone.

Applying is tricky because these have a tendency to form bubbles. What's worse though is when you take off the top protective layer, it's stuck on so tightly that it lifts off the protector you just spent all that effort applying and getting bubbles out from. The top protective is just stuck on far too tightly to the actual protector. I wasted one protector experimenting with this. The best way to do it is to get it on the phone, then slowly peel back one corner and roll it off on itself.

Once it's on, the coverage is excellent and goes right up to the edges. Clarity also seems good. It doesn't have the nice oleophobic (anti-fingerprint) coating of glass protectors so you do get finger print smudges. I've had mine on a few days now and I think the top and bottom may be lifting very slightly as there is a bit of fluff getting stuck - I think this is mostly due to poor application on my part though. Overall the product is decent for the price and probably the best so far for the S7.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shimmery white looked and felt cheap, 13 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the white version to be a bit cheap looking and feeling. The "shimmer" looks like bits were wearing off already when it came. It was too much of a shame to clad my very new phone in cheap looking plastic so will be returning it. The case does look like it would protect the phone in a sacrificial sort of way but it's not for me. It's also very difficult to take off so this isn't one of those cases you can interchange on any sort of regular basis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the watch but not as good as previous DVDs, 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is typical McIntyre and if you like him then you'll like this. His other DVDs I've given 5 stars to. This one loses a star because it feels slightly like he's running out of material and is repeating jokes. For example he's done a bit about a home intruder before and he's combined this with his previous "being naked at the gym" bit. Still well worth the purchase though if you're a McIntyre fan!

2.0 out of 5 stars Implausible story with no ending, 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was surprised that this book is rated 4.2/5 on Amazon because it is nowhere near worthy. The plot centres around Sam, a cardiothoracic surgeon, and his wife, a humanitarian worker. Over the course of the book, you are constantly reminded of what a good, worthy person he is and it's incredibly irritating. The characters aren't developed and have no flaws which means you aren't really invested in any of them.

The book starts with a bang and gradually gets slower before petering off completely. The worst part of this book is that it doesn't answer any of the questions it raised during the build up. The book is wrapped up within a few pages and the author doesn't bother explaining any of the plot devices used to create the mystery. I'm assuming that the author used such implausible plot devices that they simply couldn't come up with an explanation. For example (spoilers):

Who were those teenage girls in the cutaways (e.g. Jody)? Why did Richard have the necklace? What was the significance of "black wolves"? What did Louisa have to say about "black wolves"? Why did Vincent pursue Marcus for 15 years (I mean come on)? Where did Eric get the money from? Who recorded the train crash (with sound and no video!)? How did Jody "kill" Vincent and his goons? If the target was Marcus then why did Sam get targeted? The list is endless!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great concept but could do with fine tuning, 13 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a really good idea to have a tripod built in. The head is fully adjustable in tripod mode and tripod is stable. If I had some criticisms I would say that it would be useful to be able to adjust the focus of the beam and it could do with being a bit brighter. Also the tripod legs are held in place by small magnets and the tripod tends to spring open in storage.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arrived faulty, 13 Jan. 2016

It didn't work at all when I received it so sent it back for refund. It's not exactly cheap either so quite disappointed. Also, would have been useful if it had a manual on switch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made, good costume but poor fit, 16 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The costume looks good and it's nicely printed. The downsides are that there is a "Morphsuits" logo stamped across the back. The fit also wasn't great. I'm 5'10" so ordered the large but it's an odd fit. The legs are far too long and bunched up whilst the torso is fairly short. I'm not exactly an odd shape. The waist is also quite loose though I am fairly slim. I think Large would look far too big on someone 5'4". The face is freaky when you see yourself and they've made the face slightly thinner material so you can see quite well with it on. Good costume overall though.
