5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't even get a free sample, 23 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike a lot of reviewers of these jump start devices on Amazon, I sadly did NOT get a free one nor was incentivised in any way to write this review... Seriously, what's up with that?

Well, so far it works as described. I've used it twice to jump start my 2L car, both times the battery has shown as around 8V on the dashboard gauge (and the starter only clicking when I turn the key) and this device seemed to bring it up to about 11V, which was enough to start the engine.

I haven't yet had a completely dead battery, but will update if and when I do... But I'm pretty pleased with it for now, and it's saved not my bacon but at least a lot of annoyance involving standard jump leads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone and size, sim slot very fragile so take care!, 30 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent phone for the price, it has one issue that bit me hard though: The fragility of the sim card reader. Don't put any kind of sim adapters in there or you risk snapping the pins off. (Admittedly, it does "caution" against doing this in the documents, but it never said *why* not to or with enough capital letters and red exclamation marks for it to sink into my head.) Yeah, I broke it and had to get a replacement.

It's a shame the newer version of this phone is a bigger size. This one IMO hits the sweet size spot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A moving send off for a great protagonist, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A moving finale to the series. Lightning has been a refreshing change from the usual angsty teen, and she gets a worthy send off.

It was slow to start, and the time limit was a little annoying (no stopping to take in the view), but it grew on me, and so did the character Lightning as we got to know her far better than in the previous games.

I watched the ending FMVs yesterday, and was quite emotionally affected by it. We see a rare bit of vulnerability from Lightning, a point at which my heart went out to her in a way I've rarely experienced over any movie or videogame characters before.

The very final after-credits movie is very clever too, hinting at a certain connection between different worlds. Perhaps Lightning will find the others - or perhaps she will find us.

I guess tastes vary a lot, because this XIII series is up there with VII for me. Lightning really is the female Cloud!

And so beautiful in the Midnight Mauve...

Thanks Square Enix. You made a long time FF fan happy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive and uncomfortable, 19 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The material is really thick, rigid, and uncomfortable to surround yourself with. I've had other brands that were far thinner and thus more comfortable. I imagine this is quite durable though.

The great thickness also means it is not really a "snug" fit around the kayak as advertised. Since the advanced elements kayaks are inflatable you can't pull the cord tight enough to compress this bulky material and achieve the "snug" fit or it will just pop off. A lighter weight material and cord would surely have worked better.

It also seems unnecessarily tall, coming far up my chest, nearly to my neck. (And you would usually want to pull it tight and up high so pools of water don't collect on it).

Maybe the thickness gives good water resistance, but you are never going to get a perfect seal with such an inflatable kayak, so seems a bit excessive.

It does the job I guess, but the general feel is of sitting inside a large, stiff, paper bag.

If I hadn't used it I'd probably return it, especially considering the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars No improvement yet, 10 Nov. 2014

Used it for a couple of weeks twice a day, hasn't improved my acne in any noticeable way. Will use for a couple more weeks just in case and update if there are any improvements. Perhaps I need something stronger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little thing but you need extra batteries, 31 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great little thing, incredibly durable. I mostly fly over long grass, which makes crashes better - have dropped 100ft out of the sky many times, landing on grass with no damage.

Flown it into bushes etc and the blades are pretty durable too, though I have needed occasional replacements. Often you can simply bend them back into place.

In "advanced" flight mode (the only mode you should be using!), it's very nippy and fast, also flies incredibly high, nearly out of sight, before losing signal.

Battery life is only a few short minutes with the included battery, if you want to have fun and get good with this you *need* more, and a multi-usb charger.

2.0 out of 5 stars and the fight mechanics aren't particularly fun. There are some good parts, 19 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Demon's Souls (PS3) (Video Game)
Someone described this as the "flappy birds of PS3". I was sceptical, given the high praise this game gets, but they are spot on.

It's punishing, repetitious, and the fight mechanics aren't particularly fun.

There are some good parts: Graphics are good. The "feel" of the game, the atmosphere, is great. Some impressive locales and some wonderfully bizarre and warped creatures. I feel there is probably an interesting story which will be told.

However, spending twenty minutes traversing through a level, only to be killed and find yourself right at the beginning again, with only half your health, all your health potions used up (they don't re-appear), and all enemies respawned, is just not fun. It's infuriating. It's like dropping your bookmark out of a book and having to spend ages trying to find where you were again.

This sort of hardcore gameplay worked with something like Mario, where you could run through a level in a matter of a minute, having learned the routes, but for this kind of slow and realistic 3D gameplay it just becomes a chore.

I feel this might have worked had the fight/battle mechanics been especially fun, allowing for battles to occur in many different ways. However, it doesn't. It's generic block-then-attack fighting with the same enemies all over again.

This game is fun in the same way that trying to thread a needle in the dark is fun.

These helikon t-shirts are great. Soft and fairly lightweight. If you like the fit, then your entire t shirt needs are sorted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Small one is still too long, 23 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reasonable belt, provided the locking mechanism doesn't fail (which happened and is why I needed a new one). However, the small size belt is still several inches longer than the one I got with my 32 inch waist trousers. So I'm left with nearly ten inches of spare belt to do something with, and it's not the sort of belt you can really cut and shorten yourself either (the rubber end bit is firmly sewn on).

Edit: Actually, with a sharp knife you can remove the end bit by cutting the threads, cut the belt shorter, seal it with a flame, then superglue the end bit back on...

5.0 out of 5 stars A surreal action movie with emotional depth, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sucker Punch [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
At first glance this seems a typical male orientated action movie - some very lovely ladies, crazy fight/battle sequences and explosions - and those aspects are certainly all present and accounted for!

However, it also has a very dark and emotionally stirring plot. At the end of the movie I sat thinking for a while, the finale was very bittersweet and touching. The last movie that left me feeling like this was "Leon" which was in some ways similar: over the top action yet grounded with a emotional and tragic thread.

It's also quite a surreal film - we are told the story through fantasy sequences, being left only to guess as to exactly how the "real" events occurred.

The soundtrack and Emily Browning's vocals are sublime and fit the movie perfectly.

Sucker Punch is in a league of its own and absolutely blows typical "male" movies such as Fast/Furious, Transformers, Expendables etc out of the water.

A great and refreshingly different action movie! Feels included.
