      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Best contacts I've ever had, and worth the expense.

      I've been wearing contacts for ten years and never had any problems, but when I changed to the comfort plus, I noticed a big difference. I can wear these for longer, without my eyes becoming dry or irritated, and that has made a big difference.

      I've never found them to be less than twenty five pounds for a month, or two boxes of thirty lenses, but a few places will charge you more, so make sure to shop around first. Other than the price (more expensive than one pair per month), I have no complaints about these lenses.

      I have kept these in for two days at a time (in emergencies or by accident after a big night) and other than drier eyes than usual, this has not caused any problems with my eyes - no scratching of my eyes and it wasn't even that uncomfortable.

      Essentially, these are the best lenses I've ever worn, and the most comfortable by far.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      The phone does everything, but was just too difficult for me to like it.

      I found this Blackberry difficult to use and not worth the price. Fortunately, I was using it for two weeks as an interim phone, and borrowed from a friend who had moved on to bigger and better things. The battery life was appalling, and then web browser too slow to even bother with most of the time.

      I never used the messaging feature, but BBM is a big selling point of a Blackberry phone. Having said that, with the newer messaging apps around for smart phones, I don't see the point of paying for a more expensive Blackberry for what is, essentially, just a brand name.

      Had this phone been easier to use, I'm sure I would have loved it - it does everything I need it to do, and more. However, I didn't find it at all easy to use. Navigating menus was difficult, and knowing where to find things was even harder.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good amount of storage, and doesn't need to be in perfect condition to actually work.

        I've had my nano since it first came out, and although the back light has completely gone, and the battery life is less than five hours of music, this is still fantastic. I've never used mine for videos, and so the back light doesn't need to work for me to get use out of my i-pod - I either put it on shuffle or use another light to navigate the menu.

        I have 'Genius', which has been a fantastic addition, as a cross between a complete shuffle of music and choosing a single artist to listen to. I personally think that 8G is the perfect amount of music to have - a lot of variety - but would not be enough were you to want to store and watch a lot of videos. 4G is probably not enough storage space unless you are using your iPod for a specific reason or don't need much variety!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Perfect for travel, but not a substitute for a more powerful computer

          My family has had this netbook for five years now, and it's still in excellent working condition, despite making it through numerous business trips and two gap years. It's one of the smallest netbooks on the market, smaller than a lot of the newer models (exclusive of tablets), and very lightweight.

          We did have to replace the original charger and adapter, but the computer itself has not had to have any repairs in five years, which is more than I can say about many other computers.

          The keyboard is small, but this is very easy to get used to, and is far outweighed by the benefits of having such a small computer to take travelling or on small trips. Although it has a small screen, I have neever felt as if I were squinting or having problems reading using the computer.

          The memory is fairly small, so I do recommend some external disc space if you need to store anything on your computer, but with three USB ports, this isn't difficult to sort out. There is also a memory card reader, which is not common in such small netbooks. Speakers are louder than you might expect, and the battery has never over-heated, even after constantly running in 34 degree heat.

          I couldn't think of a better computer to take travelling, as I never worried about my computer breaking or being stolen - who would want something five years old when the next person over has something brand new, even though my netbook was more useful!

          I don't recommend this to use in place of a more powerful laptop - different computers are built for different purposes, and this one is suited for carrying around, not for working from.

          Advantages

          • Reliability

          Disadvantages

          Perfect for those who rarely use their phones.

          This was my first phone 10 years ago, and there's a little place for it in my heart! I think this is a perfect phone for kids especially -it's very easy to use and very difficult to break. Parents quite often want to know their kids going to and from school on their own (with or without friends) are safe and are able to contact them if needed; this is perfect. The phone also is not 'cool', so is unlikely to be shown off and abused, and is very cheap to replace if lost, stolen or broken.

          This phone does exactly what it needs to do, without being flashy or having too many options, so it would also be useful for an older or less technologically savvy buyer - much less confusing than a lot of the newer phones. The buttons are fairly large and it's built like a brick, so is tough to break. The volume also goes up very loud, so hearing problems are not an issue.

          (Major plus - it has the original 'Snake' - who doesn't love that game!)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Very good second phone, or for use whilst travelling.

          This is not a fantastic phone, especially considering today's market of smart phones, however, it is a much cheaper alternative to the latest smart phones. It has fairly good internet capabilities, and you can use the 'Skype' app - essential for me and a lot of people I know.

          I took this phone travelling with me for just under a year, and it is still going strong, despite being dropped more times than I can count, and after quite a few counts of water damage - this phone survived a typhoon despite its age!

          Having said that, the battery life is not fantastic (possibly due to my model being third hand, possibly just a feature of the phone), and the internet can be very slow and frustrating. Slow internet is better than nothing though, and I do still recommend this phone if you need an internet phone on the cheap.

            Hyped waste of time.

            This reads just like a twilight fanfiction, with less action and more sex. Thankfully I read quickly, as I'll never get that time back! The women around us have hailed it as amazing, but I think it's a massive setback in feminism, as women are portrayed as submissive, when so many of us work so hard to get our men to realise we want more than this. Books have been hyped up to be far better than they are, and this is a complete waste of good paper.

            Without the sex scenes, the book has nothing, and if you are wanting a book on erotica, there are much better things for you to find. I think the fact that so many people read this on the tube and hide it behind other books or by using a kindle says it all - this is a guilty pleasure to read because it's a fad, not something to read for the sake of reading.
