  1.  Works, kind-of.

    The auto-switching function of the unit failed after less than one day of having it. It seems that the problem may be that the unit senses stand-by power of a particular device and will not auto-switch to the device you have actually turned on. So if you have an XBOX 360, Blu-ray player, upscaling DVD player, SKY HD etc. all of which stand-by, you can see that problems will be created.
    You have to go behind your TV and press the manual switch button which takes away half the attraction of an auto-switch.
    It does, however, extend one HDMI port into three.

  2.  Does everything I want it to.

    I have used this SD in my Wii and my HD video camera with no problems. Formatted capacity is 14.9GB, if anyone is wondering.

  3.  Entertainment per £ is pretty good.

    If this was a full priced game I might rate this game lower. The game is your basic 'duck and cover' shooter... Gears of War but not as good. The major selling point of this game is the humour, I find myself playing through alright-ish gameplay to get to the cut-scenes. Any long-time gamer will appreciate the comedy in this game.

  4.  Classic.

    Gets funnier each time I watch it. The picture quality is not the best you will see on Blu-ray, but quite good for a fairly low-budget film shot in the early 1980s, also intended to be grainy so as to mimic the documentary look. The Master Audio track is fantastic during the music sequences. Anyone interested in the Mocumentary genre will be hard pressed to find one better than Spinal Tap.

  5.  Fantastic for the games that support it.

    The controller is clearly not designed with every game on the Wii in mind. For games on the Virtual Console the controller is essential, also some Wii games are much better using the Classic controller as opposed to the Wiimote, for example, Mario Kart Wii plays much better using the Classic controller. The 'handles' on the black Classic controller (absent on the original, white Classic) make it much easier, and more comfortable to handle for extended periods of time, especially for adults. Recommended.
