5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent so far!, 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these cables after a frustrating weekend where three standard cables developed problems. Most months at least one of the 8 or so I use will fray, stop charging or develop some other fault. I picked these due to the braided outer which I believed would reduce faults. Most other braided cables were priced at twice the price per cable than these in this pack.

So far I have been very happy with these cables. Time will tell if they last longer than others, but already I look to these over my others due to the security of connection (the Micro USB end looks longer than other I use) and the ease of untangling.

4.0 out of 5 stars A slightly blunt edge, but does the job, 27 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book, and the follow-up - Guild Wars: Ghosts of Ascalon, as an avid player of Guild Wars Complete Collection, and a lover of fantasy books.

There are two reasons that this book was written, in my opinion.:
1) As a link between the current game and the upcoming Guild Wars 2.
2) To provide a fun, original reading experience in the GW universe.

For the first, it succeeds admirably well. There is enough link to the game to provide a player with a sense of follow-on, and describes the important events before the sequel game so as to send the adventurers into the new story. It even fills in some questions from before the first game.

It is on the second that it starts to fail for me. The book is written well, which does please me in this current fad of fast-paced but poorly written fiction. There are no extraneous items or descriptive passages, and you are told what you need to know. Fantastic! I am sick of being told, in the middle of a gunfight, that the room our protagonist has ran into has Edwardian sinks, which then do not have any relevance to the rest of the story. What did strike me was the generic plot. There are hundreds of similar books out there where aside from detail, the plot runs similarly. Now this book is constrained more than others - the history and future are already set and known, but we could have had a little more in theway of originality.

So, if you are looking for a link between the two GW games, it is a definite must. If it is a good read you are after, this book is as good as most, and better than some.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!, 23 Jan. 2008

There will be generally two types of people considering buying this: 1) died in the wool Eels fans (of which I am one); 2) people new to the Eels sound.

If you are in the first group, there is not a great deal on this that you will not already have. Most of the twenty four tracks are from the albums (Beautiful Freak, Electro-Shock Blues, Daisies Of The Galaxy, Souljacker, Shootenanny & Blinking Lights And Other Revalations) but with a couple of interesting little additions. There is a Jon Brion remix of 'Climbing To The Moon', rendering it more melodic. Midway through is a bizarre but excellent version of Missy Elliot's 'Get Ur Freak On'. Works surprisingly well! A live version of 'Dirty Girl' breaks up the studio sound nicely, followed by the Shrek 2 song 'I Need Some Sleep'. These do all come together nicely, giving a compact review of the band's work so far.

If you are in the second group, this is probably perfect to get you into the singular Eels sound. Some people may have been put off by the darker sounds of the first two albums, or the seeming mis-match of almost pop tunes with distinctly un-poppy lyrics towards the later albums. However this takes you on a tour de force of the repertoire displaying the brilliance of the band for all to see!

A word to the wise, though: The DVD of music videos is in the American NTSC format, which wasn't displayed on the page (at least when I ordered it). Should be ok on your PC, but unless you have a NTSC compatible TV, it will come out in black & white!
