Vilar doesn't hold back on her assessment of women, she is fair, educated and accurate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Buy, 18 July 2014
Looks great and provides excellent protection. Raised lip on the front means you can set it down and it protects the glass. Easy to snap on and off and the gold colour is a good match for the original.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money, 12 Jun 2014
Given that you can by a 4TB for between £120-130 I didn't expect the software offerings on this to be highly complex so I probably shouldn't complain, however as false advertising goes this one takes the biscuit. The Web or 'cloud' server just doesn't work - if you're buying it for that don't - just go with synology or something. The copy process is slow over a 1gig cat 6 cable plugged directly into the router/machine. The iTunes server doesn't work. It does show up in ITunes but you can't access the music, if I'd had to work on one feature to fix for WD this would have been it - I'm betting they have no intention of doing so.

[UPDATE] - After an email from WD(after leaving this review) I was told to use an older version of ITunes, which I did - it worked but unfortunately it doesn't solve any of hte other problems this device has, including choppy music because of a SLOW copy process.

The is also a persistent 'Content Scan' error which being a programmer I find unforgivable. If the library doesn't recognize a file type the whole process just stops with an error. About as much as you'll be able to get from this thing is a remote file storage and to be quiet frank you can buy an external hard drive enclosure and plug it into most routers with a USB port for less money.

UPDATE:

Planning on upgrading the firmware? - I did and it made it worse. I can still access the drive on occasion - when IT feels like it. It was plugged directly into a Vigor Router with a 1 gig lan port and cat 5e cable - that didn't seem to make a blind bit of difference. The web interface is also problematic - it actually takes the setup page over a minute to load which is frankly hilarious, my router page loads instantly. It won't recognize a second user or if it does I then can't access the same folder as that user even though I've set it to read/write access.

IN SHORT THIS THING IS UTTER GARBAGE - Just buy a 4TB hard drive with external enclosure and save yourself the absolute nightmare everyone has had of trying to get this thing to work....it's a waste of time.

Zalman CNPS9700-led CPU Cooler
Zalman CNPS9700-led CPU Cooler
Offered by ADMI Limited UK
Price: £31.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of kit, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
SpeedFan temps are down at least 10 degrees which I attribute to the copper heatsink elements. Very simple to install on an AMD system. It's bigger than I thought but you can install this in any orientation - just be careful when you are handling it around the fan part as it is attached to two pieces of aluminium and you can easily push them back making the fan contact the copper elements and it won't then turn when you power on - easily fixed by gently pushing it back out but worth a warning. - Excellent piece of kit very quiet and even comes with a fan control that you can stick to the outside of your case to boost its speed when you really want your CPU chilled. Shoots air directly out the back if you have a fan in line with your CPU too - another great Zalman cooler.

UPDATE
Had this a couple of days now, the sound or rather lack of it is blissful and this is one powerhouse of a system I have it connected to with 4 12inch fans - I'd bet money it's them I'm hearing and not the Zalman...BEST BUY.

1.0 out of 5 stars Aweful Service, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
ETA 1 month so its a long fulfilment time, however another 2 weeks still nothing, so I think o.k its christmas. 2 emails and another 2 weeks, still nothing, no response, no product.

I think its most likely a combination of thieving couriers, Christmas time and/or a company not giving a s*** but honestly for the sake of avoiding negative reviews, time wasted and potential loss of trust I'd think £20 would prompt a quick response to deal with the issue.

Never buying from LAUNQI again.

I almost bought one of these till I realized all the 5 star reviews have between 1-3 reviews over 90% of which are RDK products, strange that.

1.0 out of 5 stars crap marketing hype that works, 12 Dec 2013
Pros

- actually work despite there being ZERO evidence that they do

Cons

- Scratched in the first week from being in my pocket for 5 minutes with a 10 pence piece
- Cost £40 (half price sale) and were still too expensive
- Sizes they come in are annoying as hell, I'd already sent the Gunnar Haus ones back because there were like trying to balance a monocle in both eyes...hi Mr magoo
the 'medium' size ones kept slipping off too because of the springs in the arms which allow them to bend outward
- I actually bought a pair of xoom blue blockers off ebay for £15 and that was including the £10 shipping from the U.S, they're 100% U.V protection, look much more stylish, fit
and so far haven't scratched.
- Gunnar hype these glasses up something shocking which is telling in of itself. I used to work for a big web retailer that did that a lot (constant 'Sale now on', 1 left in stock type stuff) and its annoying as hell, especially for this price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real eye Opener, 24 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll tell you how good this book is - immediately upon finishing it, I bought another two for my Dad and Brother-in-law.

I challenge any man, regardless of how rough and ready to read this book without discovering something that rings true and forces out an inbred lie in regards to mens' role toward women and themselves. This isn't a book about how men can become more sensitive, it isn't about hating feminism either, its one of the most critical works on relationships I've read in a long time and I've read a considerable amount in the course of my life.

An interesting contrast in reading would be to finish this and then jump into Robert Bly's "Iron John" - a classic book on the growth into manhood.

This isn't "men are from venus...women are from mars"..."lets all hold hands and sing a song" - its insightful, unbiased, well researched and one of the very few books that still speaks to how men feel today.
