Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you're looking to increase your client base and contacts, then this is the book to read. Full of great hints and advice on getting the most out of networking, there's something here for everyone. Personally, I realised that I was doing some things really well, and others really badly - this book has helped me to fine tune my networking skills. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great primer for anyone looking to get into Social Engineering, 17 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great primer for anyone looking to get into Social Engineering. Conheady is well-respected within the cyber industry, and her knowledge and experience really come out in this book. She delivers in a refreshing style, easy even for the non-initiated to follow, and gives plenty of hints and tips for running your own Social Engineering penetration tests. Highly recommended.


Aces of the 325th Fighter Group (Aircraft of the Aces)
Aces of the 325th Fighter Group (Aircraft of the Aces)
by Tom Ivie
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Another 'Aces' title ruined by a biased author, 16 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fair-to-middling Osprey 'Aircraft of the Aces' book which suffers from one recurring problem with the series, namely the lack of objectivity from Osprey's US authors when dealing with US subjects.

Ivie covers the history of the 325th in good detail. Whilst there could have been more scope for stories from the actual pilots themselves, this is by no means the worst offender in the series. The main issue, though, is there's no attempt to corroborate 325th claims against actual Luftwaffe and Italian losses - every US claim is taken at face value. This leads to a distorted view of the subject, with the author making no attempt to even warn the reader that over-claiming was rife in all air forces.

For example, at the end of chapter 2 Ivie states that in the period from 30 December 1943 to 25 May 1944 the 325th '...scored 153 victories and suffered 38 losses...only seven were at the hands of enemy aircraft'. Is Ivie seriously suggesting that one unit had a 22:1 victory ratio? This claim becomes even more dubious when you consider that the total operational Axis air strength in Italy at the start of Operation Husky was only around 900 aircraft - that's all aircraft, not just fighters - and by the end of May 1944 the Luftwaffe had about 150 day fighters left in the entire country. It's not even that Ivie can claim that the records are inaccessible, as several good historians have put together the appropriate information from surviving German and Italian sources.

The 'Aces' series still has some life left in it, but the books will continue to be blighted by blinkered US authors unless Osprey starts getting them to do proper research.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great hoover to use as a secondary to your main one, or as a main hoover for anyone who lives in a small flat or apartment. It's easy to use, light and manoeuvrable. The handheld is a decent addition as well, being small but powerful. You get about 30 mins battery life from it, but if you're using it as a secondary you probably won't need to drain it all that often, and it charges fairly quickly too.

The only niggle I have is that the pipe connecting the head to the main body has a tendency to pop loose when moving at extreme angles, but that's a minor inconvenience. Overall, this is a really nice product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent mid-range speaker, 5 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nicely built speaker, let down by not great sound quality. It was really easy to pair it up with a number of devices, so it gets plus points there, and it can also be linked with a second speaker too and with an LG TV, if you have one. It's light too, so pretty easy to carry around with you.

It's a mid-range speaker. Lots better than cheaper models, but with nowhere near as good sound quality or build as the more expensive options - you pay your money and you takes your choice, really. The volume was a little quiet, but that's only really a problem in an already noisy environment. Aesthetically it's OK, although the wood version is much nicer looking to my eyes.


Creative Sound Blasterx H5 Analogue Pro Gaming Headset - Black
Creative Sound Blasterx H5 Analogue Pro Gaming Headset - Black
Price: £91.56

4.0 out of 5 stars Good choice for PC gamers, 25 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are a decent set of headphones from Creative. As a PC gamer, I used them just with my PC and didn't try them out on any other devices, although I suspect they'll be just fine. The packaging is a bit cheap compared to other similar products, but that's not really a big issue. They were comfortable to wear for long periods, if not quite as nice as headsets from Sony or Beats.

The detachable mic is a nice option. As a flight sim user, I did manage to get my TrackIR Pro to fit onto the headset (just), although it left the headphones feeling a bit loose on my head. I'm no expert on sound quality at all, but it seemed good to me - certainly comparable with a set of Sony headphones I have.

Overall a nice product, certainly worth considering if you're looking for a gaming headset.

5.0 out of 5 stars These headphones were a joy to use, 12 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I primarily use headphones for playing PC games, so this review is based on my playing experiences.

These headphones were a joy to use, and much better than my previous Alienware supplied set. They were comfortable to use constantly for a few hours, and didn't make my ears feel hot or itchy. The range is good for gaming, and there's a pleasing depth to the sound. They're also well built, and should last for years.

For gaming, the best news is that the TrackIR TrackClip Pro does fit over the headband, which makes them an ideal set of cans for gaming.


Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse
Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse
Price: £59.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic wireless mouse, 28 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic wireless mouse. It's a nice size and weight, and has two modes (one for everyday use and one for gaming). Now I play a lot of games, and even with the mouse in 'Standard' mode it has a great response. Even better, it controls how it uses its battery power (2 x AA batteries, not supplied) - always a potential problem with a wireless mouse. I've been using this fairly intensively for three months now, and there's no sign of the batteries needing to be replaced yet, which is quite remarkable considering the amount of use it's had.

An excellent mouse - buy it, you won't regret it!


Philips HD9340/90 Glass Kettle, 2200 W, 1.5 Litre
Philips HD9340/90 Glass Kettle, 2200 W, 1.5 Litre
Price: £38.99

4.0 out of 5 stars this is a great kettle for the price, 28 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a decent enough kettle, made mainly from toughened glass. It's quick to boil, and much quieter than my previous kettle (albeit with less capacity). It would have been really enhanced if it included an LED light or two. My only concern would be how the kettle will look over long-term use, especially if you live in a hard water area. I can well imagine the glass becoming stained and fogged over time. Still, this is a great kettle for the price.
