5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent great value piece of kit, 11 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a great piece of kit this is. My first NAS and I was a little sceptical after reading some reviews. Mr Farrall for instance claiming the DS213 reduced him to a gibbering wreck. Ridiculous, all I can say is he must either have been this way his whole life or he's the type of guy who struggles with the TV remote.

The web based interface is excellent IMO. Just as easy as using windows and it looks really good and it's responsive. Very easy to set up and I mean easy. Great apps, not just on the NAS it's self but also for Windows, OS X and iOS.

Wish I'd bought ages ago. Only my first day with it and I already have my files and my own Dropbox set up and working a treat. Also works great across my mac running Mavericks and my pc running Windows 8.1. Very impressed, buy, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, 6 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Look good and sound decent but I've heard better. Still the best 2.1 set for my money is the Acoustic Energy Aego set. Admittedly they are more expensive but they do sound quite a bit better.

If you are wanting that unique look though and only want to spend £100 you wont go too far wrong with these. Build quality is really good too.

Should also say that they are quiet when not in use but switched on. Some sets buzz and hum not so with these which is nice.

HTH

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic device, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had a ps vita since launch and I do like it but the nvidia shield frankly makes it look like a toy. All these years manufacturers have been wanting two analogue stick gaming and console like controls and nvidia finally came up with the great idea of putting a console in the controller.

Having Andriod, a proper OS as apprised to the vitas OS just opens up so much more possibilities to the device. I don't have a gaming PC but there are 1000s of android games all of which work with the shield. Quite a few have been specially adapted for the shields tegra chip and controls. Half life 2 is simply stunning, it's just like playing on a PC. The source engine of half life 2 would bring the vita to its knees. Would love to see developers create more stuff like this. Even standard Andriod games can be mapped to the shields controls though so that's a massive plus.

Not even looked into the emulators yet but that opens up all the old retro classics.

All in all I'm very happy with the shield and would recommend one to any gamer / gadget / tech fan. Been charging via my iPad USB plug works great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frame rate is terrible, game still good, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Never played BL on any system but I have to say I really like this game. Just something about it that keeps you interested. The frame rate is pretty poor in places but never becomes unplayable. If you've played on a console it will probably seem worse.

Graphics I think aren't too bad, getting this on the vita is some technical feat as it's one hell of game in terms of size and scope. Shame the developer couldn't squeeze a few more FPS but you can't have everything.
