5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 29 Sept. 2010
I purchased this product for a laptop that had faulty internal wifi. The battery is also showing age, so I decided on this due to its small size and therefore low energy demands.

On opening the product, even after seeing the images, I still could not believe how small this is, especially compared with the Netgear one that came with my router. Its discreet and can remain in the USB slot - its so small it is actually difficult to remove!

The product comes with a CD to install the drivers required, but instead I plugged my laptop directly into the internet cable and used Device Manager/Windows Update to find the drivers instead. Took around 2 minutes to install, and found the wireless network immediately.

When in operation, the product features a pleasing blue LED that they have somehow squeezed into that small case. Its not very bright, but it lets you know that the device is there and working. It generates a small amount of heat during use, but certainly nothing you would notice on your lap. The range is an improvement over my Netgear 'G' adapter as expected, the connection is constant and the pages load quicker than with the internal wifi (when it was working), despite being used with a 'G' router.

Overall, a great product. Cheap, low energy, low heat and a great connection. Definitely worth the money, for both laptops and desktops alike.

EDIT: For anyone using Linux, the drivers are not included with the current kernel (2.6.35-23), but can be downloaded from the edimax website and are easy enough to install.

5.0 out of 5 stars PS3 Remote, 4 Jun. 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
For watching films on PS3, the SIXAXIS is not an ideal controller to use. This is where this product comes in. The glossy finish is pleasing to the eye but still feels durable. It is the same length as my TV remote, so to me it seems like a good size. Comes packaged with two Sony AA batteries, so you can get started straight away.

Pairing with the PS3 is easy, took me 20 seconds from my PS3 being off to the remote being paired.

Many people have mentioned the fact any button turns the console on, and depending on your circumstances this can be problematic. But they have failed to mention the positive side to this. Anyone using the SIXAXIS will probably, like me, turn it off during the course of watching a film. And on trying to pause the film, finding I need to turn the controller on again. Not a massive inconvenience, I know. But with this remote, if you press, for example, the pause button with the remote switched off, the remote switches on and pauses the film without requiring you to press the PS button or press the button again.

Navigating the XMB is so easy using the D-Pad, and the buttons all feel tactile and well made. There are buttons for a variety of features that most people won't use, but its nice to have them there anyway. You can use the remote for anything on the XMB, even games if you re-number the controller to 1 and the game goesn't require analogue sticks.(Not sure why you would want to do that though!?)

And because of the bluetooth connection, there is no trying to aim the remote at the TV while watching a movie in the dark. Some people say they have trouble seeing the buttons in the dark. I haven't had this issue. The remote is nicely curved at the ends, which wouldn't have been possible with an IR reciever in the end. The curved shape fits the hand well and is comfortable to use.

Overall, a fantastic remote. Packed full of features and has many positive points. A great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars God of War Collection, 9 May 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
2 brilliant action gamesand a must have if you are considering buying the third. This game gives you the storyline before GoW3 and it is vital that you have this if you want to understand what is going on in the 3rd installment.

However, it must be said that this type of game isn't for everyone. If you're not sure whether to buy it or not, I recommend downloading the GoW3 demo from PS Store before you make up your mind.

The graphics are decent, not as good as some PS3 games but its much better than they were on the PS2.

Overall, 2 fantastic high-intensity games for one low price. Well worth the money.

Great episodes, loved them on TV and love them now! If you enjoyed them on TV, then you should definitely consider buying.

As for the blu-ray, you really can tell the difference. This is my first blu-ray, and I have the other Top Gear episodes on DVD. The picture quality is amazing, and the sound is good too.

If you have a PS3 or other blu-ray player, get this. If not, get the DVD version instead. Definitely worth it!

It works well, feels durable and looks fairly good too. If you have a gamecube/wii and not many games then this is a great product and a cheap price.

However, if you have a lot of games, you should think about buying the bigger logic 3 card for not much more. The game case should state the number of blocks it requires, so you can buy the size you need.

This review is from: Play TV (PS3) (Accessory)
Brilliant piece of kit, a must for PS3 owners.

Although no series feature yet, a planned update will add this and a 14 day EPG.

Also, it is easy to play the files on PC if you install K-Lite Codec pack (free - google it) and can be converted to use on any MP4/iPod/PSP etc. using SUPER (free - google).

Now all I need is a bigger HD.
