5.0 out of 5 stars Great price and good performance, 17 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this at a slight discount when I picked up the Fire TV stick. For the price I thought it would be a nice extra tablet to use in the living room. I was surprised at how well it works. Games and streaming run smoothly and linked up to the Fire TV stick it's a nice way to browse for movies or TV shows to watch. Internet browsing is great and I haven't had any issues so far. Overall a great bit of kit and for the price it can't be faulted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Affordable way to watch your favourite streaming service, 17 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fire TV Stick (Electronics)
Really enjoying the Fire TV stick so far. Linked up to an Amazon Prime and Netflix account it's the easiest and quickest way to get watching on demand streaming TV.
Set up was easy and the menus are straight forward and easily navigable. The quality of the picture and the speed of streaming over WIFi is great too.

The addition of apps, games and music (via Prime) just sweetens the deal.

Overall the Fire TV stick is a great affordable way to get you're favourite streaming services running on the big screen.

NOTE: adding a Fire HD tablet gives you and extra level of control over the Fire TV stick and although possibly seen as just a fancy remote it gives the ability for two people to search for something to watch next. 😜

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good, 14 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have only used these on a few of jobs around the house. (No professional use here) and so far I have no complaints. They boar through brick and concrete no issue and I haven't noticed any wear on the bits yet.

The price is good and the plastic case is nice to keep the bits together in your tool box.

I have had other bits that would have worn down by now or not even been up to the task so I am pleased overall with these.

Simple and cheap, there is no overly noticeable sound loss or noise and for non professional use they are ideal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the last one, 14 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I enjoyed the last Amazing Spiderman game there was a lot that need fixing to make the game more fun. The sequel definitely fixes some things by adding some new types of stealth missions and generally making the combat more fun. But overall it's still not the Spiderman game that I want. It doesn't have the variety or overall polish to stand up as a great game.

If you a fan of Spiderman and can get this cheap it is worth a playthrough but otherwise you may not be able to put up with some of the repetitive missions or cheesy acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look Great, 14 Jun. 2014

Bought these to replace some old hanging baskets. The colour of them definitely gives the allusion of real topiary and there is no maintenance/watering. The chains are sturdy and they arrived well packaged. No assembly required. GREAT!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice brain teaser, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book itself is beautifully made with a padded cover and the innards are printed very nicely on quality paper.

The puzzles themselves are well written and pose a decent challenge. They are classic riddles in style that definitely need some brain power to reach the right conclusion.

4.0 out of 5 stars really fun an challenging, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great board game. The board is designed well so you have to plan your routes carefully to get to all of the locations in as few rolls as possible.

The clues are often cleverly crafted so that working out the solution isn't easy without properly thinking about it. We have played several games now with between 2 and 5 players and it is just as fun each time thanks to the variety in the cases on offer.
