1.0 out of 5 stars Packed up!, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this PSU to replace a failing unit in my old PC. All seemed well for a few weeks after installing it but I eventually decided to opt for a whole new system. After running my new PC for a few months I thought I'd install this power supply to my new system. A few weeks and all was well but then I started getting boot failures. I put the original supply back and all was well. I tested this power supply in the old PC and it was still failing.

Unfortunately this happened just as my years guarantee was up, even though it has only been used overall for a few weeks.

A lemon.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best., 16 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JFK Has Been Shot (Kindle Edition)
I've read many books and essays on the JFK assassination over the years, and I can happily recommend this as one of the better ones. It does side with the conspiracy theorists who reject the Warren Commission Report and a couple of the ideas reflected here have since been explained away. However, the overall text is one mans compelling eye witness account of an infamous moment in history, told in fascinating and often gruesome detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good system but not as advertised on Amazon, 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As has been stated here, the processor in this system is i5-2330 not the current 3330 advertised on Amazon's listing.

What you do get:

8gb of memory supplied on a single RAM stick, leaving the other slot free for upgrading further.
6 USB 2.0 ports, two on the front under the drop down flap and 4 at the back.
SATA 1tb hard disk by Western Digital
USB keyboard and USB Optical mouse.
Motherboard utility disc and guide books.
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with External Recovery Media disc.

Graphics and sound are on board but fine for general use. 2 PCI Express X1 slots and one PCI Express X16 are available for further upgrade options.

Casing is basic but not unattractive. Fan isn't so noisy that it bothers me, although the PSU is only 300w.

While this is a good system, I am disappointed Amazon didn't supply the current processor version as advertised, so the docked review star is purely because of that.

Amazon say that they have checked their stock inventory and the i5-3330 version is unavailable from them but maybe available from 3rd party sellers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal, 16 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much of the material maybe over-familiar to Alton Ellis fans, the clincher here is that the original Treasure Isle tracks from the '70s Mr Soul Of Jamaica album are at last presented without the hideous drum overdubs. Add to that a bundle of equal quality bonus tracks from the ska, rocksteady and early reggae periods, and the first digital re-issue of the late '70s extended versions, and you can't go wrong with this release.

A fitting tribute to one of the greats.

This lead was the fourth HDMI cable I tried to connect a DVD recorder and Blu Ray player to my TV. The three previous [cheaper] leads all failed to produce any picture, whereas this Panasonic lead works perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning, 17 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great two CD set covering the first year of the legendary Blue Beat label. Although the cover states "The Best in Ska" the music contained is a wonderful selection of pre-ska Jamaican blues, r&b doo-wop and shuffle. The sound quality is excellent throughout and the liner notes are superbly written and researched.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic, 12 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dynamo (Radio Edit) (MP3 Download)
This is a great Rock 'n' Soul number from one of South London's most impressive talents. An obvious homeage to the great Jackie Wilson, Si Cranstoun gives a brilliant and captivating vocal performance on this self-penned number that bounces energetically around fom start to finish.

Check out Si's forthcoming album "The Throwback" and his previous CDs "Skinny Jeans" and "Get Lively", as well as his work as one half of ska/reggae outfit The Dualers.

Africa (Ashley Beedle's Going Home Edit)
Price: 0.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Madness Africa remix, 2 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Taken from the sensational Liberty of Norton Folgate album, Africa has been given a simple, but fortunately sympathetic extended mix by Ashley Beedle as part of the new Sugar & Spice download only single.

No real gimmicks here, and more importantly no un-neccesary overdubs from the remixer. This is a very different and laid back track from the band that far too many people still fail to appraise for the depth, diversity and quality of work.

Highly recommended as is the album from which it is taken.

1.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating, 19 Sep 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this recorder, and was initially very pleased. Set up was simple, and actually recording couldn't be easier.

Unfortunately the machine I had could not keep synch with the picture and audio in high quality mode, and also suffered some glitches in the 2 hour setting.

I may have been unlucky to get a faulty machine, but after wasting many discs I could not recommend this model.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good season, 9 Mar 2006
Season three is regarded as one of the shows best, and rightly so. Excellent stand alone episodes as well as Myth-arch episodes that don't get too bogged down with conspiracy (unlike later episodes).
Picture quality is a bit grainy, and the advertised commentary tracks for two episodes are not present (?), but overall a great package now available at a cheap price.
