      Advantages

      • "Fabulous range of Products"

      Disadvantages

      • "Search results not always relevant"

      Stress free Customer Service Fantastic, best online shopping site I love it

      This is the first site that I go to when looking to buy online. I have bought Shoes, T-Shirts, Gift Cards, Children's toys and too many Kindle books to mention. I find it very easy to search for what I am looking for, but sometimes the search results come back with things that are not relevant to what I am searching for.

      For the most part though I have always found this company reliable, helpful and very very efficient. The customer service for this company is the best I have dealt with, I had a problem with my Kindle and I contacted them online and was able to chat to an advisor online. I had never done that before so I was quite dubious as to what the result would be! They were great and even though I had had my device for over a year offered to replace it. After several more chats and trying different things, they managed to solve the problem no hassle no fuss and no long arduous phone call fabulous.

      I love the way that you can track your order from beginning to end, delivery is usually quick and plenty of options to pick from. I have never used Amazon Prime as yet but I am seriously considering it as an option. You have to pay £79 pound for a years membership which includes unlimited free shipping on items over £10 and whatever the size, videos, music and e-books. This site is so easy to use has so much to offer the customer, some things that you would never see in the high street stores and I feel sometimes at better prices.

      Advantages

      • Addictive
      • "Fun co-op play"
      • "Great New York setting"

      Disadvantages

      • "You have to walk a lot!"
      • "Can be repetitive"
      • "End game is disappointing"

      Decent, but not spectacular as hoped

      The highly anticipated next gen game 'The Division' is without doubt one of the best recreations of a city in a video game. New York is beautiful. The game world is set in a dystopian New York City following the aftermath of a smallpox pandemic.
      Your player is part of a Strategic Homeland Division - aka The Division. You work to investigate the outbreak and help to rebuild the city, fighting against the criminal activity which takes place on virtually every corner.
      For most tasks, you'll mainly need to be part of a team to succeed (although you can complete challenges on your own - it's much more difficult!) and keep progressing. The game rewards you for completing challenges and tasks by upgrading in your home base - where you can earn points in exchange for new weapons, clothing, better skills.
      The main part of the city is where you'll be working together, although there is a huge different section called 'The Dark Zone' where it's player v player. Here, you find the really special items. But it's much more difficult - who do you trust? Shoot at a rival player and you'll be hounded by others around you. But the only way to get your loot back to your home base is to call for a helicopter, where you'll face an agonising wait for it to arrive. While you're waiting, players can kill you and steal your loot. It's tense and can is a fun part of the game.
      The Division perhaps doesn't meet the huge hype which surrounded the game's release. But it IS fun. Saving another player as you blast your way through the New York underground, for example, does give you satisfaction.
      I just felt a bit flat when playing it. The end game isn't special and after two weeks solid play, I've yet to play the game again, despite new content being released. It's probably worth waiting for it to come down in price. Overall, it's a decent game.

      England belt Sri Lanka on American TV

      In recent years Sri Lanka and Pakistan have become home banker series wins for England, this summers test series opponents. They suffer with the weather and swinging ball on softer greener pitches and England run up 2 and 3-0 series wins. It will be no different this year, bad weather not enough to save the visitors as the same bad weather produces the low innings scores. It proved the case.

      1st Test @ Headingly, Leeds – May 19-24th

      ===Ginger power===

      Cook had come into the match needing just 36 runs to become the first Englishman - and the youngest man in history - to pass 10,000 Test runs. But, after England were inserted on a pitch with a tinge of green on a length, he nicked out for 16 as new boy Dasun Shanaka took 3-3 as England slumped to 51-3 and 83-5. Hales, normally the one to fall quickly to good seam bowling, held on and bought up his first fifty just after lunch as he settled in with the more aggressive Johnny Bairstow to lead the recovery. And recover they did as the chunky Yorkie wicketkeeper set about fulfilling his promise to his long since dead father to score a test hundred at Headingley. David Bairstow kept wicket for England but couldn’t cope with retirement and killed himself just after his son was born.
      The pair closed the day with an unbeaten 86 partnership as rain swept in to end the day. Hales was bought in to score quickly from the off but the one that labored by scoring just 2 of the 12 boundaries they shared.

      ===Hale the new opener===


      Day two was as equally lively as Hales and Bairstow passed the 100 partnership before the Nott’s opener departed for 86 to trigger another wobble. But Finn held up an end to help Bairstow pass his emotional hundred as the crowd rose to their new hero. He would close on 140 for England’s 298 all out. Hales and Bairstow’s effort was 226 runs of the total, 73% of the innings and a record. Johnny has whacked 2300 first class runs since September @ 70.


      Jamie Anderson appears not to take many wickets abroad but always ‘on it’ in England. You need to bowl fuller at Leeds to get the ball to swing and local knowledge saw Sri Lanka bowled out for 91 in 36 overs. Anderson and Broad were superb and a demonstration of how to bowl in England. It was. somewhat surprisingly, Andersons first 4 wicket plus haul in a test at Headingley with his previous best 3-91. That 5-16 would take him to sixth in the all time test wicket list with 438 scalps, passing Kapil Dev.

      Cook, not interested in gate receipts, inserted Sri Lanka for more of the same before rain saved further embarrassment for Sri Lanka. England's 298 is the second lowest total by a team that has enforced the follow-on (since the follow-on became within 200 runs in 1980), behind 288 by India v SL at Chandigarh in 1990. Bairstow took 5 catches to become only the second Englishman to do that after scoring a century, South African Matt Prior the first to do it. Modern keeps are expected to score runs first and then take catches.

      ===The top test wicket takers===

      Muralitheran 800
      Warne 708
      Kumble 619
      McGrath 563
      Walsh 519
      Anderson 438
      Hadlee 431
      Pollock 421
      Habhajan Singh 417

      A rainy day three saw Sri Lanka capitulate again as they failed to acclimatize to a traditionally inclement late English spring. 119 all out (Mendis 53) this time with Anderson taking 5-29 for his twentieth 5 wicket haul in tests. With only 162 overs bowled it was the 13tth shortest test ever.


      ===England beat Sri Lanka by an innings and 88 runs===

      Test 2 @ Durham
      May 27-31

      Durham cricket ground are in the financial mire and minus 900k. Dumping the unglamorous Sri Lankan test on them in May didn’t help. The ECBs bonkers experiment to have nine test grounds bid ding for just seven tests has nearly bankrupt the game. Lords always get two when two teams touring
      and The Oval another. That leaves 4 tests between 7. The other grounds can’t survive on just one ODI. Franchise Twenty20 will happen now to provide ECB those grounds with more revenue. Sky and the will insist on it.

      A chilly day on the east coast saw England bat first on a flattish looking pitch, if just to try and make the game last until Bank Holiday Monday. Cook again failed to make those 10,000 test runs and very much an opener who gets 10 or 100. Hales has proved he can bat sensibly and his 83 with Joe Root for a 96 run partnership set England up for a big score. Root again got out in the 80s and the 17th time he has failed to turn a 50 into a hundred before Bairstow and Moeen Ali put on 70 for the 6th wicket with Bairstow out for another great catch for 48. Sri Lanka took their catches all day to stay in the game.

      ===Mo better Blues===
      Day two and 310-6 became 498-9 declared on Saturday as Moeen Ali scored his second century and enjoyed his elevation to number 7. You never feel England really believe in this guy and often dumped in the tail. But he proved himself here and although technically weak on off stump and often flashing at balls through the slips it worked this match. Sri Lanka appeared to allow him to score at will and put on 100 with Woakes (39) and 72 with Finn so to stay out there. He is only the fifth Englishman to score 1000 runs and take 50 test wickets. England's first-innings lead of 397 was their biggest in Tests against Sri Lanka, Herath claimed his 300th test wicket, second to Chaminda Vaas (355) on their all time list.

      ===All out again===


      Sri Lanka’s reply was pretty shocking as they were again skittled and tumbled from 44-1 to 101 all out. This was the first time since 1956 a test team had been bowled out for less than 120 three times in a row. Broad 4-40 and Andersen (3-36) did their thing as the clouds gathered over The Emirates stadium to trigger the fold as Bank Holiday Monday play looked very unlikely now.

      ===Fightback===

      This time Sri Lanka began to find their footing as the follow on was enforced on day three and so at least 4 days play now for cash strapped Durham. Full refunds on day four would be a disaster. Sri Lankan cricket has only known financial strife and perhaps felt some sympathy as they recovered from 100-3 against the newer ball to 309-5 at the close, Mathews 80 and Silva 60, England using 7 bowlers.

      Day four and Sri Lanka continued to improve with Chandimal (128) completing a hundred and his first outside Asia, a great effort in context and only the 8th test keeper to score a hundred following on. The chubby Herath battled on with 61 alongside with a 116 partnership as Sri Lanka closed on 475. Andersen helped himself to his 21st ‘fiverfor’ and his 450th test wicket and seven more catches for Bairstow over the two innings.

      SO just 79 to win and Cook bringing up his 10,000 test run at just 31-years old with 49* not out for the 9 wicket win and so the series. He also passed Michael Atherton as the highest England captain test run scorer. Sri Lanka misery was complete when their exciting young bowler Eranga was called for chucking.

      ===England win by 9 wickets===

      Disadvantages

      • "Easily damaged"
      • "Battery life"

      Overall good phone , recommended

      The iPhone 5S isn’t just supposed to be “the most amazing iPhone yet.” It’s not “the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever.” No, Apple says the 5S is “the most forward-thinking iPhone yet” and “the best smartphone in the world.”

      But the screen didn't get bigger, and the design hasn’t changed. Apple’s mid-cycle S updates are always about the little things: faster internals, a better camera, more memory. But this year little things have turned into big things: there’s upgraded 64-bit A7 processor and a hidden fingerprint reader, a better camera and a much-improved new flash. Add those to the new, wholly redesigned iOS 7 software, and Apple believes it has a phone that’s much more than just a refresh. For £199 plus a two-year contract, the 5S is Apple at its swaggering best, believing it can win the spec-sheet arms race while still offering a device anyone and everyone can use. I would recommend this phone to anyone who likes apple products

      Advantages

      • "Quick and easy"

      Disadvantages

      • "Open to fraud"

      Overall its a product that most people would not trust although its a good idea

      I think this idea needs to happen soon in the uk otherwise not many people will be voting in the future but sorting it out so its certain that fraud can not happen seems to be a long road to get to, firstly i can not be connected online, or at least not connected to our internet. Maybe invent a new secure server thats connected to the physical side of voting if that is possible, not sure if that could happen, otherwise this system can not happen, fraud is the most biggest problem with this and i do not think it will happen anytime soon, electronic voting is something for the future but remain in the the future fot the time being until its its certain that fruad will not take place, maybe there is a way where you can vote online over a period of time before a election then representatives of the party you vote for or a third party can confirm your vote by coming to your address? Not sure if this will work, maybe if the workers carry body cams to make sure nothing dodgy happens, but before electronic voting can fully take over i think some sort of electronic/physical vote should take place first, then easing its way into being fully electronic, this seems to be the only way that i could happen, otherwise get your pen and paper out and get registered and vote the origanal way so everyone can sleep well and be free of corruption for your country, i do not think this will happen in the uk anytime soon!

      Fantastic blender for smoothies

      I purchased this blender a few months ago as my other one had packed in. I previously had a proper blender - one that I could put anything in to help me with cake making, making soups, anything really. However I stopped using it for those things.

      I saw this blender in Tesco, and recognised the bottle as quite a lot of fitness/nutrition/active people I follow on Instagram post shots of them using this bottle for their protein shakes. It was only £24.99 so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

      Day one of the blender, I got a bit overexcited. I stocked up on a variety of colourful fruit and veg - anything I thought I could pack into it. After my second smoothie of the day (and as it turns out it was completely futile buying pretty-coloured fruit because everything you blend comes out a grey/purpley/slime green colour) and having used up all of my fruit (and I'd brought a tonne of it!) I realised it's actually quite hard work to be healthy! However, the smoothies I'd made were tasty, despite having vegetables in them.

      Smoothies I tried: pineapple, strawberry and spinach. And kale, mango and kiwi.

      Day two, I had a grape, kiwi and apple smoothie. I'd discovered adding some mint leaves to every smoothie made them taste better, even if the majority of it was made up of vegetables.

      For three weeks solidly, I made a fruit and veg smoothie for breakfast, and I was pretty chuffed at myself. I'd discovered Tesco had frozen fruit packets which made everything a lot easier, and as I was making the day's sandwiches I'd always had leftover rocket or spinach so that'd go in my smoothie to start my day.

      If you're like me and struggle to pack in enough fruit and veg every day, these are actually pretty great. I wouldn't ever had a smoothie as a meal replacement, but it is great as part of your breakfast. Or quite a few times I'd go to the gym in the evening, come back, make a smoothie and throw a scoop of protein in it too to have as a protein shake.

      In the box you get the base, two blender bottles and caps, one blade attachment and the instructions. It was wonderfully simple to use (though I did scour the instructions first). After cleaning the bottles for the first time of course, you simply fill the bottle with your chosen ingredients, screw on top the blade, turn it upside down and place into the base then blend. Blend it for a minute or so until there are no lumps, unscrew the blade, pop on the lid, then you're good to go. You can then take this bottle out and about with you, to work, or to the gym, and drink it as you go.

      When it comes to cleaning, you can pop the blade attachment back onto the bottle, fill with Fairy Liquid and water, then 'blend' it and it cleans the insides for you!! This is actually the instruction's recommended method of cleaning and it is super easy.

      Sometimes if I've left the bottles all day without soaking then this won't work and you will have to wash it up properly - it mainly depends on what's been inside it. Vegetables seem to stick more than fruit. You can also pop the bottles and blade attachment in the dishwasher.

      Although my interest in it has waned (I now don't use it every day), my other half still uses it every day and I'd say I use it once every three days. But I want to start using it more and it gives me the aspirations to be healthy!

      The blender is now five months old and still works fantastically. Occasionally after I've blended up some fruit/veg I'll go to drink it and there'll still be lumps in it, so I'll have to add some water and re-blend it. But this only happens one in every five times. A bit annoying but I should probably try it first before leaving the house! Otherwise it usually produces lump-free drinks.

      I really like the bottles it comes with, they are a decent size, the green lid is appealing to look at. The bottle curves in at the middle so it is easy to hold. *Sometimes* the bottle has leaked, but this is when I've not screwed the lid on properly or put the cap back on properly. And it's only been a few drops - I've not once had an all-out leakage.

      It's a really simple blender to use - there is only one button that you can either press and hold for blending or press in short bursts to 'pulse'. I like the simplicity of it. It is also a nice green colour that looks nice in my kitchen.

      I have used this blender for foods other than smoothies once - I made protein pancakes and this required mixing up egg, banana, cottage cheese and oats. Because this only required a small amount of ingredients it was possible, however for anything bigger you'd struggle because the bottle only holds 600ml. You wouldn't be able to blend a soup in this!

      Also important to note, this can blend ice! When I've made fresh fruit/veg smoothies, it's been a bit warm and not very nice so I've always added ice. Though this isn't necessary now that I've started using frozen fruit. But yes it does blend ice just fine (I believe it's a 300w motor so that's decent enough).

      Overall, a really great product for making smoothies for a decent price, and you can buy this from most supermarkets or online.

      Advantages

      • "Sorted out my dry skin "
      • "Lasts a long time"

      Disadvantages

      • "Quite expensive "
      • "Doesn't rub in well"
      • "Quite liquidy"

      Really helped my dry skin all over

      I recently came out of army training and this stuff has been an absolute godsend!

      From week 1 to week 4, I was in absolute bits. My skin was red raw, particularly on my knuckles, my knees, my neck and my armpits.

      I was chaffed to bits from all of the new starchy kit we had to wear, all the marching that meant your thighs and armpits were constantly rubbing on the clothes. On my neck where my rifle sling sat that held my heavy rifle. On my shoulders from where my heavy bergen's straps rested. My knees from constantly 'taking a knee' on gravel and concrete. And on my hands - the worst was my knuckles. After an exercise my skin would be so cracked that mud and dirt would stay within those cracks for about two weeks.

      I had a couple of cheap moisterisers but they weren't working. I managed to order some of this stuff online, in the biggest bottle I could find!

      It was quite liquidy - I'd only ever used the E45 in the tub before that's quite thick. It came out easily so that I could spread it over my skin well. It didn't absorb amazingly well and quite often I'd go to bed completely white and I'd put it on head to toe! But it wasn't the end of the world.

      I was impressed the bottle lasted me about 8 weeks considering I was using it on a daily basis and using a large amount of it. I was impressed that within a week my skin had gone from being practically red raw to normal again, and after using it constantly on my hands my skin had finally softened so that the mud and dirt had been removed!

      This is really easy to pick up - I've seen it in Boots, Superdrug, Tesco and other big supermarkets. I purchased it online and it was more expensive - I recommend picking up some from Superdrug where it is about £4.50.

      Advantages

      • Solid
      • "Nice colour choices"
      • "Leak free"
      • "Good price"

      Disadvantages

      • "Straw sometimes flips up a bit too easily but it still hasn't leaked"

      Brilliant water bottle to remind me to drink enough water!

      For many years I've survived on refilling old water bottles with tap water and trying to remember to take this to work. Unfortunately a lot of the time I forget. I get to work, I'm thirsty, I buy a coffee, then buy a Pepsi out of the vending machine.. Shocking I know!

      On a whim I invested in a Camelbak Eddy water bottle in bright orange and have been using it every day since I purchased it! It's brightly coloured and pretty and as it sits on my desk it reminds me to constantly fill it up. I've been filling it up with a mix of water and orange squash.

      The bottle is 600ml capacity, so just over a pint. It's a good amount/size to carry around in a bag. It feels very solid and doesn't have a plasticky taste as some bottles tend to carry.

      The bottle seems to be very water tight - I've had it in various different bags and it's not once leaked nor has any water come out of the top even when the straw has accidentally flipped up!

      I paid £15 for this which I know is very overpriced! I purchased on an army base in the expensive NAAFI. I after found it online for about £8 so I'm gutted but never mind! The bottle comes in a variety of colours - black, clear, red, green, purple, and pink.

      The tag says it's dishwasher safe but unfortunately I don't have a dishwasher so I cannot test! But I would trust the tag if I had one.

      Overall, great product. I'm due to climb another mountain next month and this will definitely be coming with me alongside my water bladder.

      Advantages

      • "Everytime updated about your order"
      • "Very good site"

      Disadvantages

      • "Not all keyboard language"

      Good site, professional work. great stuff

      I needed a laptop and since the commercial ones are very bad i decided to build my own; searching on web i found pcspecialist well reviewed so i tried.

      Very satisfied, a very very good site, many option, everytime updated about the status of order.
      The laptop arrived in a very good/safe package with all cd and manuals. Its about a week since i received and it works pretty well ( before dispatch they test it ), materials seems solid and i chose the specific so i'm satisfied. The only bad thing is that i couldn't choose my language keyboard, its not that bad but it's just a small thing they can improve.
      If i have to buy another laptop i'd re-choose pcspecialist for sure.

      Italian review: ottimo sito, sempre aggiornato sullo stato dell'ordine. Il pc arriva in un pacco ben imballato con cd e manuali. Prima di spedire testano loro il pc quindi va tutto bene ( ho scelto io i componenti quindi so cosa mi aspettavo ) unica pecca è la tastiera non italiana ma non è un gran problema.
      Se dovessi comprare un altro laptop sceglierei ancora pcspecialist
