4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good, but..., 9 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The colours are vibrant and the lead is a good length, although the cable itself is very stiff and only bends in one direction due to the shape of it - flat and wide like a shoelace, so can be a bit of a faff to set up and could potentially wear out faster than other USB cables due to the cable being bent this way and that during normal use.
It doesn't feel particularly sturdy as a product, so I'm being very careful with it. It arrived with minor fraying on blue braided layer near one end where it fixes up to the phone plug, which could be down to the way the leads are made. How long it'll last remains to be seen, but so far so good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Larger than I was anticipating, 2 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The decorative flower is quite large when the ring is actually in position in the ear - really too big for my personal tastes, but the quality of the item is pretty good.

The dimensions of the flower are about 3ml deep (front to back) by more than 5ml across (one side to the other). If you like chunkier jewellery, you might like it.

It would have been nice to have the dimensions of the captive bead/flower, rather than just the gauge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective but too long & narrow, 23 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It packs a powerful punch and stopped the cats banging on the door while it was in use, but it was too long and narrow to hang from the door (which is what I'd been planning to do) so had to be placed awkwardly along the floor in front of both mine and my mum's bedroom doors which made night-time bathroom trips a gamble. One the weakest setting the shock proved fairly unpleasant even for me, so don't whack it all the way up if you've got small or shorthaired pets.

It is only effective if you or the animal are touching the embedded wires in two places, so can be a bit hit-and-miss when you've got pets with small feet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short woman buys full-sized men's hoodie, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't speak for how well it fits me as I am not six feet tall with big shoulders and long arms, but quality-wise this hoodie is excellent. Even the chunky drawstring gives off a sturdy, fairly hard-wearing feel instead of being a skinny shoelace. The print on the chest is large and distinctive with clear, sharp edges and will probably be intact for some time if given appropriate washing and drying care (don't tumble-dry with the print on the outside, if you're going to tumble it).

The pocket on the front is pretty large, going right across the front from one side to the other. (I don't tend to use hoodie pockets because I find that anything larger than a phone drags it down around my knees but I may as well give it a mention in case big pockets aren't your thing and the picture isn't clear enough for it to be easily visible.)

I'm very happy with the hoodie and I'm sure I'll have it for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfy fit, irl colour differs a very small amount from the photo, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The top is longer in the body than I was expecting and it's slightly less pink in tone compared to the photo (which for me is a good thing) - it's more of a tomato red in real life. The length of the torso and width of it at the bottom could be a problem for people with bigger hips if you're measuring size from your bust, so it's probably better to order a size up or cut a couple of inches off the bottom and re-sew it yourself; it's long enough that it wouldn't end up too short if you did so.

The print on the front is quite good - it's not coated on thickly enough to split easily under stress and it looks like it could last for a while. It's also quite large when you look at it irl, whereas the photo makes it look a bit small (but that's probably just the length of the shirt, as mentioned above).

All in all I'm totally satisfied with the quality and price of this top and I'm very pleased I bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a lot to do, but is sometimes OP, 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For me this game has been the most enjoyable since D/P/PL. It's very engaging and is extremely easy to spend half a day playing solidly, especially once you begin trading with and battling other people online. There are minigames you can play with your Pokemon to permanently raise their stats and increase (or decrease) their affection towards you, which in turn affects their capabilities in battle (a couple of examples are them fighting through and curing themselves of status conditions and surviving attacks which would otherwise be knockouts). You can customise your appearance and the appearance of certain Pokemon with clothing and hair boutiques in some cities. There are so many different habitats to explore that it's possible to spend hours ignoring the storyline while looking around, and you can find battle encounters in some surprising places.

Pokedex-wise there are quite a large number of early-gen Pokemon around which weren't present in the last couple of games, and there is a new Pokemon type (Fairy) which might not sound like much but is surprisingly resilient against some other types.

One thing I've really appreciated is the fact that quite often your rivals will allow you to turn down their inevitable and frequent requests to battle, so you can heal your team before going back for the fight.

The only slightly negative thing (if it can be seen that way) is that not too far into the game you begin to receive items which could potentially make the game a little too "easy" to beat, such as the modified EXP. Share which gives experience to your entire team even if only one member was involved in fighting which leads to extremely rapid levelling. I spent most of the game at least 10 levels above everyone else which didn't make for much of a challenge. This particular item can be turned off via selecting the option in your bag so it's not exactly game-breaking, but there are other items which may not be so easily circumvented.

Another mild annoyance is that you still can't sell TMs and they are never used up (essentially making every TM a HM), which seems to be a permanent thing in the series now.

Despite a couple of minor complaints, overall this is a brilliant game with much to recommend it even if you haven't been that impressed by other Pokemon titles.
