5.0 out of 5 stars what a difference and SSD makes!, 28 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just purchased one of these to replace a failing Samsung 1TB SATA HDD,and why I did not make the change to one of these earlier is beyond me - yes I know its a tiny drive compared to my old drive but I only use Windows 7 HP 64 Bit and Battlefield 3 so I dont need anymore but what a difference this makes Windows 7 boots in no time at all and Battlefield 3 runs as smooth as silk.

Once Windows 7 is installed with its updates you are left with approx 30GB add BF3 with its updates then you are looking at about 15GB free so enough for music/video and the like.

Just make sure when you install this drive for the first time you have AHCI selected in your BIOS and deactivate Hibernate in Windows as this will free up extra MB on the drive,also DONT USE DISK DEFRAG on these SSD's as they don't like being defraged and make sure that the SSD firmware is the latest as well plus check the sticker on the drive to see what Firmware is installed on the SSD to see if a firmware update is required.

If you have a SATA 2 motherboard then this drive will run at 3Gb/s rather then 6Gb/s on SATA 3 motherboards - still respectable enough.

In my opinion well worth the price I paid for my first SSD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A small price to pay, 28 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just purchased one of these as my GPU was getting near top limit temps even in a well ventilated case and what a differance this little piece of kit makes,mounted just below my Geforce 450GTS this fan takes out ALL of the heat from the card and case and the end result is a cool case and a happy graphics card,for only £6 this handy piece of kit is worth its weight in gold - a small price to pay for what could be an expensive loss.

3.0 out of 5 stars Back to FS2004 for me., 13 Dec. 2010
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well,I have the system to run FSX well above the stated system requirements,but I am dissapointed with FSX - Why?,well if you wanted to upgrade from FS2004 with your favorite add-ons then forget it,if you want to mod your add-ons (such as airliners,liveries,gauges,sounds) then forget it - whilst FSX is a great piece of work from the now defunct Microsoft Game Studios I cant help feel that you are slightly let down by this one..,if you have FS2004 with plenty of add-ons and a decent system and are happy then stick with it,if you want a change and a sacrifice from a trusty FS2004 (FS9) then go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastwood at his best!, 14 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having owned the original Dirty Harry DVD collection which was released back in 2002,I was looking forward to this all new release and I was not dissapointed all of the original films have been given another re-master,not just the picture but also the sound has been given the dolby 5.1 remaster as well and if you have a surround sound system then eastwoods 44 magnum sounds just like the real thing!!.

As well as the original extras there is a host of new extras and commentarys plus the addition of a small hardback book,production notes,Callaghans police ID badge! and also a poster and limited edition art cards complete the extras,sadly though no .44 Magnum included!!!.

All in all Warner have done a excellent job of both the boxset,extras and also the re-master of the sound and picture of the Dirty Harry films and at under £29 then you realy cant go wrong.

This boxset is a must for not just Dirty Harry fans but Clint Eastwood fans as well.

You wont be dissapointed with your purchase.
