5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice sound, 15 Aug. 2013
After (accidently) breaking my Sennheisers [:(] I was not keen on spending the same amount so I looked around. I received the headphones today and i was really surprised about the power, when paired with DSP Manager for android the headphones actually move if I turn the bass up to max. One down side is that I couldn't seem to get the previous/next track control to work; the volume would drop as if it was switching to the next track but then the volume would go back normal and continue from the same spot. I have no idea if this is just my device(Xperia SP) or the headphones. I will try it with my tablet and update as necessary.

Overall I am very impressed, the headphones are large mainly due to the separate earcup/band design but the folding mechanism is a welcome addition, they don't fold as much as my Sennheiser's do but i'm glad they fold in the first place. The whole touch control thing is a little awkward to begin with, but im sure i will get used to swiping.

I would recommend these headphones if you want something different as there is no denying they are nice to look at and as long as you don't mind adjusting to the control paradigm(cause after all, who hasn't had trouble adjusting to button layouts even on a headset with physical buttons?)

P.S. No, the USB cable doesn't fit in as far as you'd expect compared to other devices so don't try and force it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the extra price., 16 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although it is more expensive than other flash mounts this one isn't made of plastic so its alot more durable and will handle stress alot better than simple plastic mounts. Worth the extra money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stood the test of time, 29 Oct. 2007
I bought this mouse when i made my first computer and that was at least 5 years ago. It has outlasted pretty much all of my peripherals(zBoard, eww!) and many of my computerial incarnations. After doing a slight modification to the wheel; involved taking the mouse apart and moving the metal tab a bit further away from the wheel itself, this mouse has turned into my dream product. Ive looked at other logitech gaming mice but they dont really seem to take my fancy. I was planning on looking to get a new mouse but then i realised: Whats wrong with my current one? I will be using this mouse until it stops working(which will hopefully be never!). It will be very hard to find a replacement for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars To the guy who complained about Freeview, 3 Feb. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This fault is not with the TV, ive used a multitude of freeview box's, Philips, Sony, Sagem e.t.c. And they all freeze occasionally; mainly on Channel 4 channels; E4, More4 e.t.c. So it has NOTHING to do with the TV. I suggest you check your facts before you go around giving items 1/2 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Guild Wars; in Small Chunks, 6 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Guild Wars Prophecies (Video Game)
What GW has over other games:
- No subscription fee's.
- No specific servers, so you can meet plenty of people.
- No Downtime.
- Not much grinding, grind, then explore explore explore. None of the grind grind grind grind grind; bored of the game once youve hit max level.
One of the things that suprises me still now is the amount of people in the game. In other games, certain area's will be totally devoid of players, even at peak times. But guild wars area's will always have lots of people in them(Except for when everyone is asleep, obviously). Simply because there isnt 5 different European servers, just one.
The biggest thing about guild wars is the subscription fee's; there is none. I stopped playing Star Wars Galaxies, not because i didnt like the game, i just wasnt prepared to pay £10 a month for something that wasnt very good anymore. Whereas with Guild Wars, if its going through a bad patch its comforting knowing that you arent paying for something that isnt working quite right at that certain space in time.
I will always go back to Guild Wars if i find a new game i like; ive been playing World of Warcraft quite a bit, but i always to back to playing Guild Wars until i feel like playing WoW again. Because i know it will always be there and i wont have to keep giving ArenaNET money to play their great game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great if you have time on your hands, 4 Nov. 2002
Wheather your a techie like me or just someone with time on your hands an Aibo is the great choice if you have money to spend. Youve probably seen all the other electronic pets out their but nothing is as good as the aibo, Aibo has 5 sensors so you can tell it if you want to communicate, or if you want to praise it for doing something. The 2nd release of the 210 also has a much faster processor(394mhz as opposed to 192mhz) this proccesor is also a 64bit processor so Aibo has more than enough power for its daily shenanigns. If you have bought a tamagotchi in the past but want something that actually exists and you can touch it buy a AIBO. You wont regret it. If you decide to purchase any AIBO-Ware like Aibo Life 2 it will greatly enhance your interactions with aibo and expend what Aibo can do. This includes, but not limited to, Voice recognition; 75 commands like "Good Boy/Girl" and "Whats your name", Self charging (with the soon to be released Recognition Software)Aibo will walk onto the Energy Station and walk off it when needed, advancing from babyhood to adulthood(with Aibo Life2), and many many more.
