Pulse [DVD] [2006]

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the VHS, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pulse [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
For audio-fans of The Floyd this is must-have remastered to 448kBits stereo and some 5:1 bits too of the late 1994 concert.

Get the Omni DVD (too).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not sure audience?, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you wanted to know about English secondary education in the previous two decades, then this DVD might be one side of a story. Of cause the P. Lawrence head-murder case and killing of teenager/school-student Stephen Lawrence (no relation) both during the 1990s colours the perception of this 21st Century film for those over 35-40 today.

The outtakes/extra DVD footage has the (adult, acting young) actors describing this film as not suitable for U18's so if you go to a British school this film might be what you know about already, and if not then may not make so much sense to you.

Thought it was good for a first viewing, but only watched it once since. (forgot to review...)

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but not cohesive, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got hold of this book because of a magazine review. Full of facts about the way gov and non-gov agencies influence the (second- more than third-)world, but to my view too little analysis. Could be used for research/opinionated writing.

Person bought for (not me) found it "fascinating".

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit of fun to read..., 10 Aug 2013

Not being familiar with the author I thought I'd try this new title. On promo and used the HTML5 KindleReader with my account.

I guess it must be adult fiction, but safe enough for minors, etc. with an interest in electronic-age felonism, or maybes even to put them off..?!?

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost too good to be true., 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of these with adaptor is almost better than SSD with 64GB or similar (don't mail me hate stuff for saying that!!)

Measured sustained throughput: read 6.8MByte/s write 7.0MByte/s (PC integrated card-reader)

5.0 out of 5 stars Can be used with secondary powering, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good for any SATA-connected 2.5 magnetic or solid state. Y-style USB-lead means data-trxfer and power can come from different sources (to clarify: 5v only, but probably a few hundred mA.)

Stylish and tough - great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not suited for all applications, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I messed up with this badly, in summary:
1) not for encrypted drives
2) don't UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES low-level format/blank one of these (I broke one this way)
3) runs warm so DOES need air cooling

Probably would be okay as removable/USB caddy style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job..., 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great it can do one cell only if needed, maybe use a powered hub for obvious reasons such as not able to trickle-charge when cell fully. Takes NiCd/Hybrid/NiMH as any combo of 1 or 2 AA/AAA.

To repeat, don't risk blowing the USB fuse of something expensive!! (Adaptor lead supplied.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality brandname, q. del., 10 Aug 2013

Knew the type of memory from a dealer and works well with existing 1GB memory, so happily didn't need to buy two!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive and works well, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From experience DVI cables and sockets aren't for regular changing use, so advice would be use a small adaptor cable like this one and swap over HDMI as needed.
