      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Lots of gore splattering violence!

      This move compatible game is an excellent example of a rail shooter. The game follows a linear pattern where as you are moved around the areas, things (mainly zombie/mutants) jump out and attack you. The Move controller works as an excellent gun, especially if you buy a pistol attachment ( I picked one up for £2). It is compelling game play with pickups to shoot and a bonus applied to accuracy. The more shots you can time in a row the better the rewards, which unlock new weapons at the end of each level. These bonuses and harder modes you can unlock will keep up the replay value of this game.

      The story is basically a cheesy, perverted and occasionally hilarious B-movie type script. It is certainly not something appropriate for anyone under the age of 18 or for that matter your grandparents.

      This game also comes with stereoscopic and anaglyphic 3D, which means you either need a 3D TV or to use the included red and blue glasses. As I can't afford a 3D TV I can only comment on the second type of 3D, it is a great novelty, especially when something flies out at you, but hurt my head and so I stopped using it quite quickly.

      All in all a really enjoyable game if you like shooters and don't get easily offended or scared.

      Great product, better exercise than a traditional game

      Great fun for all the family. It's as simple as that really. The move may not support the most sophisticated games at the moment but it is a great way to spend some time and a massive step up from the Wii. Whether it's having friends round for a session of drunken move table tennis or playing eye-pet with your young niece it is always fun.
      The starter kit comes with the camera, one move controller and a collection of demos to get you going.
      It is very easy to get started, just find somewhere to perch your camera (I ended up buying a clip to put it on my TV, although not essential), install the demo disk and get playing. The demo games are a mixed bag but certainly there is a few hours of great entertainment there. The Tiger Woods golf will show you how much more responsive the Move is compared to the Wii, now you actually have to be able to swing a golf club! If you access the PlayStation store you should be able to find a handful of more advanced Move compatible demos for free.
      A few games I am loving on the move at the moment are:
      Sports Champions (6 great sports games you will never tire of)
      Move Fitness (my girlfriend is obsessed with this calorie counting classic!)
      House of the Dead Overkill (using the controller as a gun is highly addictive and very accurate)

      Will outlast most touchscreen alternatives and is easier to use than a Blackberry

      I would like to start by saying that I would highly recommend this phone. I've had it for 18 months now and it is still working perfectly and looking immaculate. I upgraded to this phone from the Nokia E71 (the previous model) because I loved it so much. The E72 is basically the same design with a few more bells and whistles. It combines the classic Nokia user friendly high standards with an ergonomic design and a beautiful appearance. The chiclet style keyboard is especially easy to use, and much better than the keyboard on the new blackberry curve my girlfriend owns. It has a decent 5 megapixel camera which is perfectly acceptable for random point and click photography. The times I have got lost, I have found great solace in my phones GPS which gives a good walking guide. One of the major benefits of this phone is that it seems to have much better battery life than most of its touch screen counterparts.

      As for the downsides it seems that most people would prefer a touchscreen phone as it provides a much bigger size of screen to view video. Also it has a tiny choice of good quality apps compared to Apple and Android phones.

      Great product, worth the extra

      My girlfriend uses this product regularly. She finds it very easy to apply. It normally takes around 2-3 minutes then half an hour waiting for the colour to absorb. It is non drip so you can walk around, make breakfast etc while waiting. It smells nice, not bleach like, as a majority of brands do. It also provides enough foam for people with longer hair. This means you won't have to do two treatments or spend a long time applying.
      It provides a long lasting shine and a good coverage of consistent colour.

      The main downside would be that it is quite expensive and that there is not a lot of choice in lighter shades of colour.

      In summary I believe this product is worth a few pounds more as you get a consistent salon like result with an easy application process and much less mess than some of the other leading brands.

        Maybe worth buying a bigger machine for better quality

        First off I would like to say that this machine is an aesthetically pleasing addition to my kitchen. It is much smaller than the majority of coffee machines and less than half the size of my previous one.
        However it is lacking in many key assets. It does not come with a milk jug, meaning you have to pay out a few more pounds to froth up milk well. It is also lacking a 'knock box' to empty the used coffee without breaking your bin. Also each coffee must be individually made unless you like extremely weak coffee as the filter arm holds very little coffee for a double shot. I am also not convinced the pressure of the machine is good enough to make excellent espresso, even though I have not bought high quality coffee since owning it.
        On the plus side I would say that the milk steamer is much better than on the last two machines I have owned, it is possible to make cappuccino foam without much effort. Also being such a small unit, it is quite easy to clean. In summary I would say that this machine is nice looking, a bit over priced and slightly under equipped..

        Buy if the price is right

        I bought this TV in Sainsburys for £250 around 18 months ago. I think this was an excellent price for the size and the fact that you could only buy unbranded TVs for near to this price at the time. It is a quality product with a decent picture and sound quality. It makes very little background noise i.e. whirring or humming which is a problem I have had repeatedly with other manufacturers. The stand swivels conveniently to face your viewing position. It has 1 HDMI port, 2 scart ports, 1 VGA port and 1 USB port as well as a few generally outdated ones i.e RGB and optical out. It also has full Free-view coverage, an excellent menu system and remote control. It is a nice looking unit , plain black with tidy edges and no obtrusive buttons or LED displays.
        The main problems with this unit would be only 1 HDMI port, the main way of connecting modern computers and games consoles. Also the fact that it is only HD ready, meaning you can get better resolution almost anywhere now.

        All in all I would say this is an excellent television to buy if at a reasonable price, but in 2012 (or later) you can probably find better specifications for a similar or cheaper price. However a quality unit if the price is right!
