This is not a book, it's a booklet

I expected to receive a proper book, but instead this is a 5x5cm booklet with a very summarised version of this book. Not impressed, at least not what I expected​.

A very informatively book!

Reviewed by on

I am a drawing beginner and never thought I would be able to ever draw. This book has got so much good instructive details e.g., how to see shapes (in plants especially), how to see shadows and it also include very useful colour mixing information!

Definitely a must buy and I would recommend to intermediate drawers/coloured pencils artists!

Just dont.

Reviewed by on

I was stoked about this screen, the online review looked good and its ultra wide at a good price.

This all sounds good until I started using it. The screen I got had very bad color/light bleed and the alleged 75hz refresh rate is also a lie. The max is 60 unless you lower the resolution, so that is totally misleading just as the promotional pictures. Although the physical bezel is like 1mm thin, which is part of the plastic shell the screen is housed in, the screen has a black rim which is basically another bezel so the screen isnt as full as they advertise it.

The only good thing I can say about this screen is that the color representation is great, but thats it. If you are bothered by light and color bleed, which is probably due to poor manufacturing, then stay away as you wont be satisfied.

Unfortunately there isnt many affordable ultra wide screens on the market, so if you must then I guess you can buy one if its on special and around R2000. If you can afford it rather spend your money on a different brand.

Blizzard Fan

Reviewed by on

If you are a fan of the Blizzard franchise and WoW, then this is an extremely decent buy.
Movie is not to bad, the visual effects are AMAZING.

The price you pay and what you get out of it, is really worth while, especially if also play some of the Blizzard titles.

Blizzard once again show their appreciation for customers and reward their loyalty.

An album that needs more love

Reviewed by on

It's unfortunate that most Afrikaans artists like Bouwer are overlooked in favor of the more mainstream. Bouwer has been making excellent music now for many years. First as one half of the Dans Dans Lisa Duo, and now as a solo artist. This album didn't wow me initially but it's one of those that slowly grows on you the more you listen to it and after a couple of months you find yourself singing along to the tracks and enjoying every song.

It's a polished production but sadly this will be overlooked just like Die Melktert Komissie was.

Fast paced, well written

Reviewed by on

This is one of my favourite books of 2016. As an 80's kid, I really enjoyed all the references to the games, music and books of that era, but I don't think one needs to be of my generation to enjoy it.

The author imagines a dystopian future where most of humanity escapes the daily realities through the OASIS, an MMORPG accessed through a 3D visor which allows full immersion. Everything from business through socialisation to gaming is conducted in the OASIS. The story centers on a challenge to find an "easter egg" inside the OASIS, told in a first person mode by Wade Watts, one of the players in the challenge.

The story is fast paced, moving at a great pace but still allows for good character development and real immersion in the world that is created. I can highly recommend it as a bit of fun, escapist fiction that will still make you think.

a Classic from 60 years ago

Reviewed by on

According to the IMDb, this 7-episode BBC mini-series was filmed in Black & White. It was made in 1968 and preceded the feature-film version released in 1970, also starring Jenny Agutter in the role of young Roberta. I haven't seen this version (yet), but the reviewer on IMDb states that: "The performances are so warm, the story is so good - I'm sure kids will absolutely love it.".

Sad

Reviewed by on

I have never read a book by Bauval and purchased it with anticipation. This book is advertised as a spiritual journey in Egypt. What it is, is a schoolish superficial general history of Egypt. Absolutely dissapointing! Do not waste your money!

Nice product

Reviewed by on

I've been using it for a while.
It's a very nice product and REALLY helps if you suffer with wrist pains.
It is pleasing to look at and also very stylish.

The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is that it had some minor defect.
Some parts on the edges had light "cracks" inside, but easily overlooked when you us it.
All in all, still a good buy.

My first powerbank and it doesn't disappoint!

Reviewed by on

Purchased on a whim, I'm very happy with the nifty LED indicator that shows remaining juice left in the powerbank.

Using to charge a couple iPhone 6S. So far it looks like I'll get around 3 full charges, maybe more.

Light enough to cart anywhere and the price won't hurt your wallet.
