Both Awesome and Disappointing at the Same Time

Reviewed by on

Musically, this album is really decent. More melodic than ever, probably, but in a good way.

The problem with this album is the production. It lets the album down in a huge way - there isn't as much of the crisp sounding, punishing production of past albums. This one sounds a bit muddy and distorted, and I almost gave the album 3 stars because of it. But, hiding underneath the crappy production is a collection of songs that can be described as Soilwork doing what Soilwork does. For this reason, it scrapes through with 4 stars for me.

Super Random Fun!

Reviewed by on

My 5 year old and I clocked this game in just under 10 hours, with 30% completion.

It’s bit of a short game but has great flow and never gets boring. Right now we’re chasing the characters we don’t have yet e.g. Lord Business @ 1,000,000 coins!

Recommended for LEGO fans with appearances from all popular stories today, from Superman to Gandalf.

Half a Man ..... a wonderful narrative

Reviewed by on

Michael Morpurgo has a most wonderful way of combining all sorts of topics and thought-provoking ideas into a simple yet poignant story.
I use this story to raise the issues of:

the war,
relationships (Grandpa and Jim, Grandpa and the boy, Grandpa and his daughter etc),
rejection
and the importance of lending an ear to our older folk

to the students I teach.
Handled sensitively, this story can inspire many young boys to read further.
It's a little package of pure gold!

Ok for the price

Reviewed by on

The trigger grips did not last long and would not stick anymore after a few weeks. The controller grips are nice but did not fit tightly enough and I found it too slippery and irritating, your mileage might vary if you are a DIY person and have better glue or something to fix these problems.

The thumbstick grips are fine though and I still use it so it could be worth it for that alone.

Was the best mouse until the scroller broke

Love this little ergonomic mouse, but after the scroller broke, and reading up a few reviews afterwards, this is a common issue apparently and microsoft have done nothing to improve the design...Still waiting to hear if it will be replaced or???

Probably the greatest controller

Reviewed by on

At the time, the Xbox One controller didn't support Bluetooth. This one that came with a Windows 10 dongle was a fair compromise, but you couldn't use the dongle with the Steam link.

In terms of build quality and ease of use, I'd rate Xbox One controllers as the best.

Life of these USBs

Reviewed by on

Had one of these running for about (24h * 365 days)*2 in a Raspberry PI
Noticed today something is odd and saw that its no longer being picked up by the PI and when its plugged in it only shows up for about 2min then auto disconnects.
Windows just says no, and spits it out.

Will add that at times the flash drive was very hot.

I have a second one that was more or less ordered the same time that is being used on a day-today basis but not plugged in for extended times which is still going strong. Its only being used when needed.

So for day to day usage, these babies are rock stars. For something that might get used for extended periods, rather get something that was designed for it.

So Far So Good....

Reviewed by on

I have always used Wahl corded clippers, this is my 1st cordless clipper and I must say I never realised how convenient a cordless unit is, also it is extremely sharp and gives a very close shave.
the only downside is the 16 hour charge time when the battery runs out( I estimate the battery being good for around 3x haircuts per charge)
the parts that operate the blades look as though they could break easily, so far so good...

Pretty solid

Reviewed by on

The cut out is perfect. The case has so much grip I haven't even dropped my phone since I put it on. It looks brutal. The only down side would be the raised diamond texture on the back of the case which indents your finger quite easily, which obscures your fingerprint, so you can't unlock your phone for a while. Not too much of a problem if you have more than one fingerprint set up, just a schlep.
