3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm, Yes and no..., 2 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I watched the Anime of this a year or so ago. It's very excellent. I bought the Ps Vita game expecting......I don't know what really. It follows the same story as the anime but, for me, has less depth to the characters. I've been playing for maybe 10 or 12 hours and ive seen maybe 8 different screens and I don't care for any of the characters any more than I did when I started it, The story is very good but the characters just feel a bit bland (not so in the anime). It's a good (pointless if you've seen the anime) visual novel but it has very, very little involvement bar bashing a button to read the next bit of dialogue. So it kind of falls between 2 stools. On the one hand, it doesn't have the depth of an actual book but it also doesn't have the involvement of a game.

I bought this for my Antec Signature S10 case. It really sets it off. One issue with it though, one of the pots consistently fails to spin up one of the fans without turning the knob vigourously back and forth through 180 degrees. Not a deal breaker, but annoying.

This review is from: Yatse UPnP Receiver Plugin (App)
This guy has provided and excellent set of tools for home theater operation. I use a Blackberry phone with an android runtime built in. Unfortunately though, when I asked this guy for assistance he was completely unhelpful and arrogant. I've since read on other forums of people complaining about his god-awful manner. Maybe he should grow up and try to revise his outdated platform knowledge. Won't be using this line of software anymore...


No Place for Disgrace 2014
No Place for Disgrace 2014
Offered by skyvo-direct
Price: £13.58

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds AWESOME, same but different, missed opportunity, skimped on stuff.., 13 Jun. 2016
Right now, i'm sitting listening and comparing the original '88 version of "No Place for Disgrace" with the 2014 version. I'm happy to say that apart from 2 obvious differences, they are very nearly the same album! Hats off to F&J for not just re-mixing an entire album but actually re-recording it!!!

One glaring disappointment with the '88 version was the absolute awful production. It sounded horrible then and it still sounds horrible now. Very flat and lifeless, which is such a shame because it is an excellent album. The 2014 production is a country mile away from that. It's a heavy, punchy mix that just sounds awesome. I wish the original could have been re-engineered to sound like this.

So, the excellent production is one big difference. The other one is Eric Knutson's high pitched squeals. They're completely gone now. He doesn't even attempt them here (but his voice is instantly familiar and strong). Shame really because they blended well into the original cut. Finally, the tempo of the tracks has been brought down a notch. They are slightly slower and heavier in the new recording which is a good choice.

It loses one star because to go to the trouble of a complete re-recording, the band could have re-engineered the original master (which may be lost) and bundled it with this, or, had some fun by swapping out the old vocals into the new mix or something. Also, the front cover is really cheap. It's a homage to the original "No Place for Disgrace" by Boris Vallejo and depicts what happens a few seconds after that cover. But the whole thing looks like its been designed, photographed and printed on the cheap almost like a calender cover. Not a fan of it at all. Personally I feel that (along with Doomsday for the Deceiver) the original NPFD was the bands peak album. The 2014 version, while not perfect, brings it bang up to date.

EasyAcc Mini Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker - Blue
Offered by EasyAcc.U Store
Price: £35.00

5.0 out of 5 stars very good little speaker, 26 May 2016
I'm always a little dubious of small speakers. Will they be tinny or too quiet or just plain awful and a waste of money? Not so in this case. EasyAcc have created a very good, convenient little speaker with a respectable sound quality. I listen to audiobooks mainly and they sound clear and precise on this. No overblown bass and no cheap tinny sound. The sound carries nicely as well with good volume. Bluetooth connection to multi devices is a doddle. If I had one 'complaint' it's that the volume control doubles as the track forward/back so skipping tracks accidently can sometimes happen when turning volume up or down. But at this price and the pretty decent sound quality, I really can't fault this smartly presented sound cylinder.


V-fit AR1 Artemis 2 Air Rowing Machine
V-fit AR1 Artemis 2 Air Rowing Machine

4.0 out of 5 stars Too Easy? PULL HARDER!, 23 April 2016
I'm using version 1.0 of this machine. The Delta Airmaster. One thing i've noticed with the new version, which seems to be an important improvement, is the position of the foot straps. On the older machine, they wrapped around the front of the foot. On this one, its closer to the back which means they will hold the feet much better. My feet slip out after a few hundred strokes on the old machine.

This is a well designed machine which elevates the heart rate at a slower pace than more rigorous exercise, which I like. People seem to complain that the machine has an easy pull. One person even says that he was 'rowing' for an hour before he gave up! My job is very physically demanding and after 200 good solid strokes on the machine, i've pretty much had it. Legs, stomach and arms are weary. Heart pounding. If people cannot raise their heart rate then they are not pulling hard enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not nice at first but good after a decent run in...., 25 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I allowed these to run in for around 10 hours and the the initial muddy quality dissipated into a fairly decent sounding set of cans. I already have the AKG Q701's so swapping between the 2 for an analysis was easy. The Y50's (once run in) have a pretty good colored sound to them. Mainly designed (i suspect) for bass heads. Initially, they sounded pretty awful in all fairness. But they really do need to be run in. Pretty important.

The sound is warm and a bit mid forward. Bass initially is a bit overwhelming but it does balance out eventually. Highs roll off a little. Not as detailed as they could be but for the price (49.99) they are very good.

So don't be put off on the first sound you hear from them. Simply run some tunes through them (I used Depeche modes' Ultra) at listening levels on loop and leave them alone for 8 to 10 hours. You will definitely hear that they have mellowed quite nicely. The soundstage is slightly limited but it will be with these types of closed cans.

Amazing Cooker. Like a friend who looks after you. Put your ingredients into it in the morning and the aroma's of cooked dinner greet you in the evening. Probably my all time best and most useful purchase. The only thing it lacks is a delay timer. I've thrown everything at it and left it running for 9 or 10 hours and the food is still awesome!

I bought th Pi solely for use as a Home Theater PC. And it works very well indeed, playing massive 1080p files is not an issue. However, be warned! There is a terrible bottleneck somewhere around the USB port that causes stutter on HI DEF MUSIC. Standard 320kpbs music files work fine though.
