You'll probably find that this isn't nearly as bright as the Cree Q5 torches (I've got one like this and a Cree XPE Q5 and have compared them), nor is the beam shape as good as the focusable ones, but then again it is about a third the price of the cheapest of those.

I hear what your saying, and i agree with you. I have had my own issues from here, with slander that they support, by doing nothing. It's why i don't say allot these say's, in comparison to what i did do.What concerns me, is people think these products are ok, when they are sub standard. If that is the case, are hotukdealss in someway endorsing them? If they are, then it could make them liable. We know that they must get some form of money, for every link that is clicked, to be taken to page where the deal is,

Now that's a "ridiculous comment". Nostalgia for a product that proportionately few people actually owned in the UK and much else of Europe is indeed ridiculous. People having the warm glow of nostalgia for a product that existed back in their childhood despite them, in common with most other people in the Continent, never having originally owned the product. That's mental!

Until Game Boy and SNES arrived Nintendo weren't that big a deal at all in the UK.



May not have been as popular as the home computers-I myself had an Amiga 1200 (not at the same time obviously), but I certainly wouldn’t call the NES a flop. I remember having quite a few friends at school that I was able to swap games with.
