4.0 out of 5 stars Good stool, shame about the instructions., 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The stool is easily and quickly assembled by screwing (four screws) the lift handle to the base of the seat with the Allen key provided, pushing the five castors into their sockets on the base of the stool, and then pushing the gas lift pillar into the base and the seat onto the pillar, or at least it is if you remove the protective cap on top of the gas lift pillar.

It probably hasn’t occurred to Deuba that ‘Achtung! Bitte de Plastikappe vor Montage entfernen’ is not easily understood here in the UK, especially since the arrow part of the text box it appears in points to a strange symbol and not to the gas lift pillar on the assembly diagram.

In trying to assemble the stool, I jammed the plastic cap onto the pillar, although the application of a kettleful of boiling water solved the problem. Also, the English language contact instructions say, “For technical support and service enquiries please contact trust while our trained staff” which might as well be in German.

The Ricoh ink cartridge fitted the slot in the Ricoh printer perfectly and the ink appeared as text on the paper. A marvel!

2.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Unrewarding, 20 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll save time by pointing readers towards the review by NicE; "slow, dull and mostly incomprehensible" summarises the book perfectly, and I don't disagree with the rest of NicE's satement. It was just dreadfully hard work to read, and utterly unrewarding. If Michelle Sagara can't do better than this, it's time to wrap up the series.

There's plenty of good Tudor history about, but it tends to focus on the doings of Nasty Harry, serial wife abuser, or the trials and tribulations of Good Queen Bess. We have an easy life in these days of cheap food and central heating; this gives you a good view of the hard lives of ordinary people and how they actually lived.

This is the first of three parts of the Eve Benson story, but I'd only recommend these three books if you've already read and enjoyed the Demon Girl novels. This is the Eve-centric continuation of the Keeley story, as Keely and Darla help Eve to help herself.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fooled Me Once, 29 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the end of the first book of Privateer Tales, the "hero" Liam Hoffen has incapacitated the three psychotic scumbags who have been keeping the soon-to-be-heroine of this tale as an abused and half-starved slave for eighteen months, and left her on board the Sterra's Gift with them. Stockholm Syndrome, anybody? Hoffen then surprises Celina Dontal by actually giving her command of the Sterra's Gift, so, amazingly, she cycles the scumbags out of the airlock... And then half an hour later she sends them an escape pod. I could have believed it if she'd released them Stockholm Syndrome fashion, or if she'd have actually spaced them and gone, probably with added PTSD.

They come after her when she reaches Mars, of course, and she then easily fights them off; a fortnight on full rations soon trumps eighteen months of starvation, and there are only three of them!

I wasn't much impressed by the quality of the plastic, but I didn't buy it for it's looks. I installed a battery and it read 50% humidity; really? It had been unpacked and inside the house during two dry and windy days, the two days after I'd switched the central heating from 'timed' to 'on' for the winter, and my existing Oregon weather station had recorded a decline in relative humidity to 35%. After an hour, with no change, I decided to re-use the battery.


Arrows of Change (Kingmakers Book 1)

2.0 out of 5 stars Ill Thought Out, 28 Dec. 2015
I've enjoyed the Artifactor series, and thought that this would be another good read.

In short, a father and daughter team of country bumpkin archers run into a mage sent to collect timber for the new, breakaway kingdom, and the mage finds that they can function as guards even when he's using his shields, so he offers them jobs and off to the new capital they go. The mage and his twin sister, another mage, spend their time sorting out problems caused by the new king (the local lord who's promoted himself) who has abolished all the laws... Robbery and murder, anybody? Come to our new kingdom, it's safe here!

At this point, the narrative lost credulity and I lost interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the Price, 20 Dec. 2015

I bought this as a mid-range card providing a Display Port after purchasing a new 24" monitor. It snapped into place in the graphics card slot and I hooked up the six-pin power connector without problem. It being OEM I then found the software on the AMD website and installed it, which software has updated itself since then. I'd buy another card from XFX if I needed to, although I assume that this card has now been superseded by the 360X.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 19 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most motherboards have two or three USB 2 headers along the bottom of the board. The first header is usually taken up with the cable leading to the casefront pair of USB 2 sockets leaving one or two free for other devices; and this device seemed like a good use for my two free headers. In practice, it was not suitable for my tool-free expansion slots, as the lack of a retaining screw left it with excessive play when fitted, although the cable length was good enough to clear the expansion card in the end slot. The killer problem for this gadget was that the lower USB 2 port (at the tongue end) did not line up with the hole in the bracket! I tried pushing it down a bit with the flat of a screwdriver but this just left me with a bent USB connector. It's too cheap to be worth returning, so this one's in the bin.
