5.0 out of 5 stars Great drink, great Amazon deal., 9 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant value considering this has free super saver shipping. Saves me having to lug a 24 pack from the supermarket. It is a nice alternative to other big brand soft drinks and is very tasty.
There is a lot of sugar in these nearly half of the daily allowance, however it makes a nice refreshing treat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Normally go for washing powder, but these are convenient and great value, 9 May 2012

Excellent, I bought these as I did not want to a lug a large box of powder to the laundrette. These work out a little bit cheaper than the supermarket and are great.

A decent amount of tablets for 80 washes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crunchy, sweet and a nice alternative to chocolate, 9 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These things are delicious, although bits of sesame can get stuck between the teeth. The coconut variety can get a bit overwhelming and these should be consumed in moderation, especially as they have a high sugar content.

They are not ideal for people with weak teeth as they are quite hard, although can be snapped into smaller pieces.

You get 3 snaps in a pack and they are quite delicious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Card, Good Value for a Mid-High End Card, Works on a Mac Pro!, 9 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this card about a week ago. So far the results have been excellent. I downloaded the latest driver from the AMD website, rather than using the included CD, which is probably out of date.

I am running this on a Mac Pro 2008 (8 Core 2.8Ghz) computer in the first PCIx16 slot alongside the original AMD 2600XT which I have kept with no monitor plugged in, in case I need to see the boot screen.

The card requires two 6 pin molex connectors, so I purchased adaptors to go from the motherboard PCI power aux's to power the card.

As expected OSX 10.7.2 boots without a boot screen, only showing a brief grey apple screen followed by the username and password login. No flashing of the card Bios was required unlike previous AMD and NVIDIA cards. The gap between PC and Mac hardware support is closing.

Performance is great, mission control and hot corners(previously expose) are responsive and fast. Final Cut Pro detects the graphics card as a compatible device and does not show any warning screens unlike the stock AMD 2600XT. Steam games such as Half-Life 2, Serious Same BFE 3 all work at 1920x1200 resolution with over 30 frames per second with all settings maxed out and anti-aliasing enabled, which is not bad for a 4 year old mac. However........

Over on my hard-drive dedicated to Windows 7, the performance just gets better with direct x games working very well. I have been playing Modern Warfare 2 & 3 at 1920x1200 Max settings with 4X AA with over 50-60 FPS. Serious Sam BFE works even better with a clear 10-20 FPS increase over the Mac version. So far everything that has come out in the last 4 years has worked flawlessly on High to Enthusiast settings.

I hope to pick up another one and run crossfire when I decided to build a gaming PC in addition to the Mac Pro.

It is also worth noting that I have over-clocked the card to 930Mhz using the stock cooler and AMD catalyst software from the original 900Mhz. Temps go to about 60-70 degrees Celcius under 80% load, which is within the limits of the card. I may revert to the original clock if I want it to last longer and improve reliability in the longer term.

Shame the price just increased. This is slightly better than the 7950 that just came out, although has a higher TDP.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to Web Programming, 6 Nov 2011

This is one of the best introduction to XHTML and CSS books on web programming I have found.

It is a bit short however it just contains useful code examples and is a great reference for a budding web programmers' shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, a Masterpiece, 6 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of my favourite shows on DVD.
Surreal comedy, dark and twisted humour along with a selection of the finest music.

I had no idea this was a 2 disc special. The second disc is similar to the first just with trippy visuals and is closer to the original radio show Blue Jam.

Chris Morris is an excellent Satrist and Comedy Genius.

That is all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Industry Standard, 6 Nov 2011
Nothing much more to say, these are great live microphones. Have even used one in the studio before to record drums. Unscrewing the windshield gives similar characteristics to the SM57.

Spare parts are easily available however the mic would have to taken one hell of a beating before replacement parts are needed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not So Great, 6 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this and swiftly returned it as I was un-happy with the compression and quality that the unit produces. As it is USB it has limited bitrate unlike some of the more expensive Firewire interfaces.

I ended up settling for the ADVC-110, which is much more reliable and can handle uncompressed video.

Perhaps with USB 3.0 devices like these will improve over time, however for now it is just not flexible enough.

Excellent Camera, bought for my mum to use on Skype. She wanted basic webcam functionality on her laptop (Dell D630). At 9.99 it was a steal, especially since it is a Microsoft Product.
