5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I caught it eventually, 11 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bible Belt (Audio CD)
Absolutely astounding album. How did I miss this when it first came out? So glad I caught it eventually. This is singer songwriter material of the highest quality. The comparisons to Carole King and Laura Nyro in other reviews are apt and deserved in this case. However there is lots of originality and diversity in her song writing. The only, very slight, criticism is that I found a couple of the tracks a fraction over produced. Nonetheless for me it is worthy of 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars this is an excellent follow up album, 11 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst there are no obvious catchy hits as there were on Born to Die, this is an excellent follow up album. Darker and more atmospheric, but unmistakably Lana Del Rey. It probably won't sway critics of Born to Die or change the opinions of those who don't enjoy her bleak style of delivery. If you enjoyed liked Born To Die, then you will probably find this an absorbing listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works OK for smartphones. Reasonable quality and low price, 26 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Construction quality is reasonable, though not indestructible as the spring eventually broke on a previous similar holder (not purchased via Amazon). But at this low price, one can afford to get several for the same price as more expensive models. Have only used suction fit on glass, which works well. Note that the design has a minimum width, so might not work if you want to use with a very narrow phone; not a problem if you intend to use with smartphones.

Fitted into 13" MacBook Pro with no problems. Construction quality good for the price. Useful for increasing hard disk capacity and/or improving performance with an SSD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old generation CPU, but excellent value now., 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the time of my purchase, this is two generations old so is outdated in that sense. However, since at the time of its release it was the flagship AMD CPU, it now provides excellent processing power per £, even without overclocking. It isn't in the top tier of processing power or power efficiency, but unbeatable value at £70.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value. Fits OK and works as described., 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fits OK and all ports usable. Magnetic catch on cover activates sleep function OK. The prop up mode involves tucking the cover into a slot, which is a bit tacky but it does work. No complaints at the bargain price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good showcase for her songwriting and singing talents. Makes for pleasurable listening., 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The simple, acoustic production works well for this collection of her songs and covers. The versions make for a good alternative to the originals by Jackie herself or other singers. Good reminder that one doesn't need slick production, choreographed dance routines or a flashy video for a good song that is enjoyable to listen to.

Only marked it down one star because it is quite short for a full price CD and it would have been great to hear more from a talented singer-songwriter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching in HD, 21 April 2012

Top quality natural world documentary with a combination of stunning videography, great narration and educational content. Watched the series when broadcast, but HD takes to an even higher level.


Shuttle SPDIF I/O CABLE
Shuttle SPDIF I/O CABLE

5.0 out of 5 stars Optical SPDIF for your Shuttle, 9 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivery was quick from AVIDES Media AG even though it had to come from Germany. Most UK retailers don't stock this item and it has to be ordered from Shuttle anyway. Price was competitive with UK retailers.

Installation is straightforward and took about 5 minutes, which included removing the graphics card and video capture card I had installed in the PCI-express and PCI slots respectively, because the header socket for SPDIF is not accessible with these cards in place. The item has optical in/out sockets tailor made to fit the pre-cut backplate holes which require simply punching out.

Only used the SPDIF out so far, but worked first time with no problems.

Make sure that your particular model of Shuttle is designed to take this accessory. Would have been nice if Shuttle included this in the first place.
