      • "Had some crashes"

      The beast is unleashed

      Great pc for gaming, editing and multitasking. The hardware is fantastic and the end product was manufactured very well. The pic can run almost any game around 100 fps. This is a very affordable high end machine which is capable of a lot more than what I have tried. This is a dream come true to have such a beast of a machine in hands. However the case is pretty big, looks like a transformer and is generally a bit clunky, but it still is pretty cool. I did have a. Bios crash which caused my pic to stop working temporarily however a small fix solved the problem. The set up was incredibly easy, all I did was enter three discs and go through three wizards to get it up and running. However the is is a bit crap, Windows 10 feels like a downgrade but it's bearable, and a lot better than 8. Apparently I have to get to 200 words and so I'm just going to ramble. Do you ever feel like a plastic bag floating through the wind, feel so paper thin. Something something something something fireeeework baby come on firework firework firework blah blah blah
      Thanks for reading

      Advantages

      • "Fair prices"
      • "Excellent customer service"
      • "Fast Delivery"

      Disadvantages

      Excellent company to do business with

      I purchased a IEEE-1394 4 pin to 4 pin cable. Delivery was very prompt and cable came quickly. I then proceeded to attach the cable to connect a SACD with an amplifier. It could not make the connection despite trying different ports (thinking a port might be damaged). I disconnected the cable and checked it with a multimeter. It turned out that it was wired not according to IEEE-1394 standard. I cut the cable in half and soldered it back in the right way. Instantly connection was working. I wrote to Digital Media Store sharing my frustrations and the same day I received full refund. That is an example to other businesses how to run an exceptional customer service - could not be happier although I still need to buy another cable.
      I highly recommend doing business with Digital Media Store as even if it happens the product is faulty you won't go wrong with them!

      Advantages

      • "Great pricing "
      • "Great quality"
      • "Easy online use"
      • "Excellent communication"

      Disadvantages

      Never used them before but after my experience I would recommend to anyone. Great job

      PC Specilaist is an excellent choice for laptops, especially bespoke ones since the range of customisation is wide and in depth. In terms of pricing they are very cheap compared to others and offer features that a lot of other places do not. The communication thoughout pre and post sales was great. Yes the laptop build time was somewhere around 13 days but that is expected as it mentions on the website for laptops. Furthermore they provided great online features such as observing the stages of production that your laptop is going through, such as testing and quality control. Their courier service they used was DPD which was excellent as they provided text alerts and tracking for my order. I highly recommend PC Specialist to anyone considering a laptop for whatever reason, be it gaming, causal and professional purposes.

      PLEASE people give this company some further support and put more faith in them. You

      The Crew does a lot of things right. Not only does it give you a huge game world to explore, but the ability to change up the whole experience by tuning your car differently is an excellent addition to Ivory Tower’s ambitious racer, allowing you to take one car and do so much more than just a mere race. Apart from the micro transactions you cannot go wrong here by jumping behind the dashboard of your favorite car and taking off into the sunset across the desert.

      Everyone is saying 'do not trust the 10s' but I really think the 0s are wrong. Every low scorer seems to have not played the entire story. I'll admit, the first hour or two felt like the plot of The Fast and the Furious, but once you get into it it changes completely. The enormous open world and endless challenges make up for the sloppy graphics (which they did mention it would have in the behind the scenes video by the way) and the controls are just fine.

      Steering was a bit confusing at first but that is because I was used to everything else. I swear, 50% of the negative reviews are from people who have not explored the open world and played through more than the first three missions. If you want to rate this game fairly, play it first.

      Not a 10/10 racing game due to a few shortcomings but definitely not a 0/10 due to addicting RPG elements and the myriad content this game offers. Ubisoft has been ambitious with their games this year and I applaud them for courage to take risks. I do not agree that Ubisoft is becoming the next EA because at least Ubisoft tries hard to make their games but just had bad quality control sometimes.

      • price

      Disadvantages

      • quality

      The singleplayer campaign is definitely better than BF3's

      I picked this game up for bargain prices, and the game didn't disappoint in the slightest, though it is only worth it if you pick this up for $20, since the story of the game is so short.

      Battlefield 4 is stout entry to the series and a strong addition to the PlayStation 4 launch lineup. As the first game to demonstrate the prowess of the Frostbite 3 engine, its explosive debut indicates a promising future for its technology. Gear up and strap in, Battlefield 4 sets the new standard for next-generation multiplayer.

      Absolutely awesome startup to new ps4. Awesome graphics, awesome multiplayer, great performance. The new 'levolution' system works and feels great, especially on flood zone.
      This game has been out for nearly a year now and let me say that this game has come a long way. About 98% of the previous bugs and glitches that plagued Battlefield 4's launch are now nonexistent and any other issues are minor and very, very rarely happen.

      Advantages

      • "Lasts for a while"
      • "Straightens hair like a charm"
      • "Does not take long to heat up"

      Disadvantages

      Best Purchase Ever

      I got my first pair of GHD's when they were going for cheap in the black Friday sales.
      After my friends went on about how good they were, I suddenly gave in and waited until I could get them for cheap and I have to say I am so glad I bought them.

      They may be a tad expensive but the appliance is really worth the money in my opinion. They work like a charm and leave my hair straight for a while. They heat up quick and even my Grandmother has started using them after she seen how good they work. I got black ones instead of white so that they matched with my other hair appliances. For some reason, owning GHD's make me feel like a queen as they are very good for the value and professionals even use GHD's in their salons.
      Safe to say I will not be changing my straighteners any time soon.

      The Deep - An Icelandic film on UKD

      Star – Iceland
      Genre – World Cinema > Drama
      Run Time –100 minutes
      Certificate – N/R
      Country – Iceland
      Amazon – £10.99 DVD
      Awards – 11Wins & 10 Nominations
      = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

      So The Deep, Iceland’s entry for the 2013 Oscars. Iceland is an enigmatic place and full of contradictions and so makes for interesting films. You envisage a land of ice, snow and Inuit’s yet its volcanic and very western European, its banking sector so advanced it may have triggered the banking collapse in the U.K, mainly because it was offering absurd interest rates that attracted many British companies, including county council reserves, triggering ugly diplomatic exchanges between the UK and Reykjavik when the islands financial system collapsed. But The Deep is the true story of a fishing trawler that was dragged down into the icy depths of the Atlantic in the 1980s with just one survivor, Norwegian Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and against all odds for far longer than he should have, perhaps a suitable metaphor for Iceland’s banking system. This story of survival is bizarre, inexplicable, and true and presumably why we finally got the movie.

      ===Plot===

      Its autumn 1984 as a storm rages off the coast of Iceland, fisherman wisely cowering in port waiting for a break in the weather, mostly by enjoying wine, women and song. The weather does indeed ease and a fishing boat sets out for Iceland’s Western Islands to bottom trawl for fish and crabs. On board is a chirpy new recruit, young Raggi (Walter Grímsson), ready with the hangover cure for the crew of six, experienced captain (Thora Bjorg Helga) at the helm as the boat chugs out of port into the early morning swell.

      At first the catch is poor and so the captain takes more risks as the net snares on the rocks down below. Finally, one snare too many, the winch pulls them over and the boats capsizes, going down in 15 minutes, two crew members dyeing quickly on the boat and so no distress signal sent, two more sinking into the depths from hyperthermia, three more clinging on to wreckage waiting for an unlikely rescue in unsuitable clothing as nights deadly claw closes around them. They know they only have 15 minutes life left in the cold churning water and with the lifeboat rusted in its case they are done for. But one man, the rather chubby Gulli (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson), isn’t as cold as the rest and swims for it, the wreck an impossible ten miles from the shore. A seagull seems to guide him on his way as Gulli makes delirious conversation with the bird as the moon and Northern Lights offer hope.

      After 7 hours in the water he washes up conscious on the shore and tells the locals of his wreck. Not surprisingly they are confused how he is still alive after the boat went down so far out and what is so special about this guy to survive impossible odds?


      ===Results===

      I didn’t know what to make of this from the dust cover and had never heard of the news story. But if the guy should have died in 15 minutes or more in that water then how exactly did he manage to survive 7 hours and swim 10 miles? They actually took him to London and tested him alongside some SAS guys in ice water a month after the sinking and they couldn’t live with him. His metabolism was like no other on the planet. He is not far short of a mutant from the X-Men movies.

      The film is effective when it explores the social dynamic of a very ordinary and unattractive young man is the only survivor. This not a handsome and superfit hero that got the girls for his amazing feat. He did nothing to deserve his survival terms other than genetics as he was unfit and poorly dressed for the oil black night and churning oceans. This is fat bloke from down the pub. These are the guys that are supposed to go first it. That’s where the film works. Director Baltasar Kormákur plays on the fact that the very ordinary turns out to be extraordinary and tests the audiences to see is they want him to make it or not. We are not used to that on film.

      While filmed on the sea for the first half, the action and atmosphere is powerful, scary and interesting, especially as we don’t know the story. Problem is when it goes ashore for the second half it loses some of its power and our hero loses his importance and our interest. His special survival skills are not so interesting on land so he is just an oddity, like the film at this point. I saw another movie about a trawler going down in Scotland and the new crew member was ostracized from the community and blamed for the disaster for being the Jonah on a settled crew. Trawlermen are very superstitious characters and we didn’t really have any of that community tension here.
      .
      I have enjoyed similar films about people in the water with no hope, ‘Adrift’, The Life of Pie and All at Sea with Robert Redford coming to mind, films about you, the viewer, joining the survivor alone at sea with their regrets as they face the end. The survival from impossible odds adrift always makes for compelling drama. But this film doesn’t quite sit in that genre as the dust cover explains his fete and the intrigue comes from the second half of the movie but that part the least interesting. It’s not bad though and any movie set in Iceland is always mesmeric, interesting and atmospheric. The foreboding feel of the first half grips you and the soundtrack powerful layered on top. But its not quite as exciting and gripping as you hoped and perhaps one to wait for on TV.

      ===Critics===

      Screen International –‘The film's gorgeous, nearly monochromatic visuals, haunting sounds of nature at its cruelest, and rare, appealingly anti-heroic storyline should entice a large chunk of viewers’.

      Globe and Mail –‘Kormakur's film suggests that the enigma of Gulli can somehow be found in his peasant humility, his connections to his community’.

      Daily Telegraph –‘[Gulli's] story's pretty remarkable. But this film achieves a real kind of lonely magic when he's bobbing on the waves under the night sky, talking to a gull’.

      Iceland Times –‘It's an unexpected but provocative direction by Kormákur, who's placed himself in exactly the right elements to make this masterful film’.

      Toronto Star –‘Even knowing the outcome ... doesn't diminish the intensity and awe of watching it recreated in this deftly framed docudrama by prodigious Icelandic auteur Kormakur’.

      Radio times –‘A film as uplifting, dramatic and mysterious as the startling events on which it is based’.

      The Independent –‘ a film which, much like its unassuming protagonist, conceals the extraordinary deep within the ordinary’.


      Sun online –‘A beautiful-looking tale of survival, which is both harrowing and uplifting in equal measure’.

      Have upgraded from Windows 7 so will take a little while to get used to Windows 10 but have a friend we can call on via team viewer if we get stuck. Have had excellent service from PC Specialists who get us up to date with progress. Thank you. Also over £300 cheaper then getting same from Curry's/PC World.

      I bought the computer on the 7th of January and it said build time average 8 - 10 days. It wasn't built until the 27th of January which was a little longer than I had been previously told but the excellent and extremely helpful service I received was second to none. The dispatch time was incredibly quick too, overall my experience with PC Specialist was a very easy one. The price too, was very reasonable. 9/10

      Brought the Glacier via the review section of the web site by using the review promo offer it was actually cheaper than buying the parts separate. Computer is very well built and tidy cable management. The system just needed final completion of Windows 10 when it arrived and some minor adjustments too get everything working right
