      Not to expensive so worth the money overall

      I got this phone when I was at school as it looked nice and stylish, and also Sony phones are reliable and it wasn't to expensive at the time. It has a built in walkman which is great for people who want to use their phone for listening to music, also it has a memory card slot so you can have as many songs as you like. The music played at the right volume, wasn't to loud or to quiet, and has the options to make your own playlists so you don't have to go through your songs all the time.

      The phone slides up and then you get your keyboard, this was very easy to use and you didn't have to press down on the buttons to hard for them to respond, texting is easy.

      The phone also has a built in pedometer which I used to enjoy, my friend had the same phone as me so we always used to have competitions to see who had walked the most!

      After about 8 months of having the phone, my buttons started falling off and not workings which is a shame, as this was such a reliable phone untill then!

      Obviously, this phone doesn't have an android market etc due to it's age so if your looking for a phone thats up to date then this isn't the one for you, as it lacks any free apps and games.

      Worth the money if your committed!

      So insanity training is a box set of 10-13 dvds (depends if you get the set with the bonus dvd's) it also includes a nutrition book, a calender to plan your workouts and a fitness guide. It's meant to be a 60 day routine to get your body in to top shape condition, aslong as you follow the calender!

      Basically it's a high intensity anaerobic and aerobic routines, consisting of plyometrics and interval training.

      The10 main dvds you get are:

      Dig deeper and fitness test- this is the dvd where you get to assess your fitness levels at the beginning and compare throughout your 60 days so you can see if you make any improvements.

      Plyometric cardio circuit- Lower body plymometric movements, so you can burn that fat and work muscle

      Cardio power and resistance- Strength and power training moves, to help with muscle definition

      Cardio recovery and max recovery- Believe me you will need this!!

      Pure cardio and abs- A nonstop workout

      Cardio abs- This one is to get your abs working and defined

      Core cardio and balance- You do this at the end of month one, ready to gear up for month 2 and you need it!

      Max interval circuit- Max interval training is where you do a really long burst of high intensity anaerobic exercise for about 3 minutes and then have a break of like 30 seconds before you go again, killer!!

      Max interval plyo- All I have to say is this is also a KILLER!!

      Max cardio and conditioning abs- This one pushes you to your limits!

      You will need abit of room to do these dvd's, there is alot of jumping movements involved, so also if you live somewhere with a thin floor might not be the best idea... your neighbours really won't like you!

      If you can stick with it you will have great effects, however I didn't have the time to always follow the calender and often ended up choosing which routine I wanted to do. Also, the nutrition book can help you to plan out your diet with whether you want to lose weight, gain weight or stay the same weight and plans your calorie intake around that. The recipes in their are nice, but being a teenager I just ate what I wanted!!

      Get an i phone instead

      Ok this phone is lovely looking similar to an i phone, has the android market so you can download all the latest apps and games and the majority are free, there is a wide choice to choose from. The touch screen is responsive, you don't have to press down to hard, all the apps work smoothly and quickly.

      I like the text messaging, this is also set up similar to the i phone, the texting keyboard is good, and also responsive, with a wide range of punctuation, and smiley faces etc. The camera takes good qulaity pictures, however no other devices can ever find my phone through bluetooth!

      But this phone has some serious floors, it keeps rejecting my my memory card, so I am unable to have a memory card in there now. Sometimes it thinks that is charging whilst there is nothing plugged into it, this then drains the battery quicker, and sometimes when its locked it won't unlock! Also, the phone has been overheating alot regularly, which is annoying.

      worth the money

      I bought this printer to use for my university work, I chose this one as it was cheap, done photocopying, scanning and printing and has a wireless connection!

      So far it has been great, it is very reliable and quick at printing, the ink is also not to expensive and it doesn't require changing often, I do print alot of work off aswell! They have made the power cord long enough so it doesn't need to be really close to a power socket, and they also provide a cord for if you don't want to do wireless printing. Setting up the printer is also very easy, there are also easy clear instructions to set up the wireless printing, so you can print from anywhere in your house, that part is brilliant!

      It has high quality scanning, and photocopying, the images are very clear and easy to see, there is no blurring! Also, the prinitng quality is great, no smugging or ink marks where they shouldn't be. It.s not to big and doesn't take up much room, also the printing is very quiet.

      They do need to make it so that you can print off alot of stuff and it stays in the paper holder, as mine always ends up all over the floor!

      Overall, this all in one printer is worth the money, I've had no problems with it and would suggest it to anyone.

      You won't be able to put it down

      I finished the three books in about 2 weeks! They are amazing, the story of the books are great and have you hooked from the very beginning, the way the author leaves you guessing what might happen next and trying to predict what will happen is very good!

      The storyline of the books is similar to the shows like big brother, but with a much darker and deeper twist, however it could happen in the future so also has a realistic twist to it! The author portrays emotions very successfully, and you feel like you inside the head of the main character , that you are actually there and are her.

      The author has also incorporated a love story into it, which gives it a realistic twist aswell, I don't want to go to much into the story and plot as it's much more fun to discover it whilst your reading the book, it's like you go on your own adventure.

      All I can say is this is a MUST read!

      Great affordable computer

      The acer computer is great, first of all everything is built into the screen so it doesn't take up loads of space! Only one lead to plug in aswell, and no wires...! Also, the keyboard and mouse I got with mine are wireless, which is a bonus.

      The first thing I noticed when I turned it on is the speed at which everything loads, with 4gbs of ram and a very quick processing speed I should of expected it! The touch screen is great, very responsive and precise, they have also included a programme on the computer which is just for the touch screen. It includes games etc, also in this area is a amazing web cam facility which can also be used as a security camera to record what happens in your room!

      It would be good if you could download extra stuff into the touchscreen area though, like apps, would be alot of fun!

      I have played a few games on the computer and it plays even the games which require more computer hardware very fast, you cannot use the touch screen within these games which is a shame, however they run smoothly and quickly. One problem I had was that the games didnt recognise I had 4gb of ram, so wouldnt let me have a big database...

      The hard drive is nice and big aswell, 640 gb so the computer can hold a lot of data, I use mine for university work and general stuff and have never found even nearly full!

      The screen is a great size aswell, and you can use the touchscreen to zoom in and out. I would recommend this computer to everyone as it's very easy to use and very fun aswell, the screen in very tough and doesn't scratch easily!

      Mine only cost me about 500, and this is one of the best bargains I could of got, reliable and will last longer than a laptop!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Ideal for a first car

      This review is based on a corsa 1 litre 3 door Gls version 01 plated, this is my first car since passing my test, the first positive I noticed about this car is that my insurance was very cheap about 600 for the year and im 19! Also the tax is very cheap aswell.

      The interior is average, the seats are to low down for my liking as I'm only small, the seats aren't to comfortable, also when you start driving mine sounds like a tank due to only having 3 cylinders. Another problem I have with the car is that I have to sit very close to the steering wheel as I feel the clutch has to go to far in (maybe it's because I'm to small! I am 5ft 3) sometimes my legs can get in the way of the steering wheel and this can be annoying.

      Also, I have issues with the accelerator, it is to close to the wall of the car, and there is a lip that come out which gets in the way, I often find myself with my foot on there! Its also either to sensitive or doesn't respond, this can be annoying!

      However, my car comes with electric windows and power steering which is a bonus, especially for someone getting a first car! I find the power steering nice and light, making the car easy to turn, and manoeuvre.

      The car is also very very good on fuel consumption, being a one litre, I don't have to put much fuel in the car and get around alot, about £45 of fuel fills up the tank! The car can also be very sensitive to any bumps in the road, but what can you expect for a first car!

      It has not broke down on me however, and is very reliable, also if anything goes wrong the parts are very cheap to replace and so are new tyres!

      Not worth the money

      I had this phone for over a year, it was very reliable fast and easy to use, however I kept having one problem, the unlocking button always falls out!! I must of had 5 or 6 new phone (luckily I had insurance!!) each time the same problem, in the end I gave up due to the inconvience caused and got a different phone!

      Apart from the one major problem though however, is is very easy to use, and if you was getting your first smart phone I would recommend this one, however if you want one with apps and emails that work consistently then this isn't the phone for you, as I had major issues with that aswell.

      In my opinion this phone is worth the money and you will have many more issues with it than what I've wrote as everything goes wrong with it, very poor quality nokia!

      Very reliable and easy to use!

      I used this laptop for my college work and it was great, very quick loading up, the keyboard was very good and didn't break easily, it never over heated and I had no problems with it! It was very sturdy as I carried it around alot and the battery life was very good, also it is very impressive looking with the glitter around the keyboard and the sophisticated white case. I would suggest this laptop is great for anyone, whether it's your first laptop as it's very easy to use, for studying work, business or just pleasure, this laptop won't let you down!

      It has the windows 7 operating system which I really like, it makes the laptop run well and has a very modern touch to it. The harddrive is a good size 320gb, so you never get near to filling up your memory, it has 2gb of ram so the processing speed is nice and quick about 2.1ghz dual core.

      The web cam isnt a great quality and the images are poor, often looking yellowish, so if your frequently using the webcam it's better to use an external one.

      What I was impressed with most about this laptop is that, unlike other models, it doesn't break easily, I've had this for over a year and a half and no problems yet, many laptops are unreliable.... not this one!! Well worth money for a great sony laptop!
