5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great sci-fi books of this generation. Hugh Howey is a star, 12 April 2013
This review is from: Wool (Paperback)
This review will be short in keeping with the others.

Hugh Howey has created a deep and immersive world with his Wool and Silo series of books. The characters are deep and well fleshed out and the books are incredibly well paced.

The initial 5 books vary in length and really serve as a great introduction to his world. Once your in the Silo you will be left craving more and Hugh's dedication to his art make him one of the quickest producers of new content out there. Meaning it won't be long before he feeds your appetite.

My review is 5 stars and this book is deserving of it. Don't question the purchase just make it and enjoy one of the finest pieces of Sci-fi out there today.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple, solid, 26 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item bought via Emartbuy. Delivery time was not too impressive, it took just over 1 week to arrive. When it did arrive it was as expected, a matt black finish to the gel skin cover. It fits the phone snugly, no problems with the cover. The screen protector, bit of a nightmare, they only send 1 so if you don't get it right first time, its useless. The protector also felt a bit cheap. Speaking of cheap, the in car charger is also quite low quality, but for this price its fair.
Overall not a bad purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars affordable hd graphics, 16 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this product after years of using Nvidea cards. My last card was an 8800gt so i was in desperate need of an upgrade.
This card fell within my budget and reviews confirmed it to be a leading card in this price bracket.
The xfx card comes neatly packaged but without any cables or extras, if you dont have 2 6 pin power cables make sure you order them seperately.
The card is alot bigger than I expected and you will need a fair sized case to house it in, especially for cooling. A midi case won't do.
The performance of this card is just what i expected, at first i had an amd x2 6400 processor and ddr2 ram. This created a massive bottleneck as I expected so i'd arranged a new asus 890gx motherboard phenom x6 processor and some ddr3 ram. The difference is incredible. The system above will need a decent 700w power supply to run. without it the games were crashing to blue screens and the colours in games were going funny,i had a 500w modxstream psu before upgrading.
The card now behaves, there are no more blue screens or funny colours. The card will run 'bf2 on 1920x1080 with full settings at 60fps, f1 2010 is maxed out 1920x1080 at a steady 60FPS even with a full grid. This is true of all games I own with direct X11 enabled where possible. The latest game I have is deus ex human revolution and this is also able to be played at full settings.
So this card is a bargain at this price, it outperforms the similar priced nvidea cards and to put 2 of these into crossfire mode is gonna be the next step, reports suggest this willgive 100plus FPS in most games which will rival and beat the top end cards.
I recommend this card for any casual gamer with a decent system.
