The C++ Programming Language, Special Edition
The C++ Programming Language, Special Edition
by Bjarne Stroustrup
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £57.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible, 27 May 2011
This is the bible reference for C++ (as my uni lecturers call it), and essential for anyone who is working or plans to work with the language long-term. This is not a teach-it-yourself book, but contains all the syntax of the language, written by the language's creator.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As Season 1, 22 May 2011
Season 2 of Haruhi slots in stories in between episodes in the first series. The Endless Eight arc can be tedious for those who are just watching it generally; however dedicated fans of the show will get more out of it, especially watching it for the first time. I was on the edge of my seat each week watching the online streams, trying to figure out how it would end. It does however finish with an anti-climax. The other episodes make up for this though, especially the ones that go more into the SOS Brigade's film for the culture festival.

The inclusion of The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan web episodes makes it worth the price tag, and makes up for the Endless Eight arc, hence my 4 star score. Only 3 stars if it hadn't been included in the same box.

2.0 out of 5 stars Practically Failed After 4 Months, 21 April 2011
Bought the 650GB model from a different retailer. Brilliant at first with good speeds, using it as a backup drive. Went to use it again a couple of months later where during copying it crashed and practically failed. Just about works but it's really slow. Would not recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dazzle review, 30 Oct. 2010
Bought this to record gameplay videos from my Wii and 360. Works like a treat. You have to remember to reset the display to 50Hz in your console menu as the Dazzle only does 50 Hz at standard def. Instant DVD recorder software that comes with it is good, however you can't start and stop it when you like (you need to shell out the extra 70-80 quid for Pinnacle Studio if you want to do that). Instead you select how long you want to record for. If you're doing lengthy videos (e.g. a Let's Play) you may want to think about getting Studio. However for quick arcadey things like Mario Kart or an FPS it's great. If you're doing the same thing as me and burning to the hard drive, it burns as a .vob file (basically a raw DVD file), so you'll need a converter. I recommend AutoGK for this.

Overall excellent product and I'd recommend to anyone.
