Drive is fine BUT. I spent 3 days battling with usb connection drop out when trying to transfer data from an old pc to a new one only to find that the problem was with THE CABLE SUPPLIED WITH THE UNIT! After changing to another cable I had lying around it worked perfectly...

Also, my 3.5" driver out of a dell optiplext 745 DOES NOT FIT

3.0 out of 5 stars He's only human, 9 May 2012
This review is from: War Horse [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, Steven Speilberg was, by some distance, the greatest film maker of his generation.

It's a great shame therefore that he's descended from that level to being merely 'competent'

This film is yet further evidence of that new status. It, like him, is good/OK when it should be great.

All he now brings to a film is his name.

Shame because he was truly great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total and utter garbage, 6 April 2012
I can only conclude that having sat through this mess of a "movie", that the good reviews are from people with a misguided sense of patriotism?

Yes, we all love Aarman and they are British but that's no excuse for a movie quite as bad as this.

Yes, it's a kid's movie you may say - but this is still an utter waste of time.

I took my 8 year old daughter and even she was bored with it by the half way mark.

Almost as poor as Gnomeo and Juliet.

2.0 out of 5 stars depressing really, 14 Mar. 2012
The book is interesting in parts and gives some insight to outsiders (99.999999999999% of the human race) what goes on behind the closed doors of the banks and the sort of "SMART" people who wield such power.

Unfortunately, even good writing cannot make these 'business leaders' appear remotely likeable or human.

in short then, a well written book about a group of one-dimensional money shufflers.

God help us all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Speaker - end of., 7 Mar. 2012
This review is from: The GEAR4 BlackBox (Accessory)
Great speaker and funky light feature.

Ignore the wind up merchants knocking it - the sound is totally fine for normal listening in a living room, bedroom, kitchen etc..

If you want "perfect" sound then pay about 10 times more and get a Bose machine.

Get real folks - what do you expect for less than 50 quid?

2.0 out of 5 stars The 2 sides of Ms. Millican, 10 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From her TV appearances I thought she was a very inventive comic.

Alas, she is actually very limited and resorts to knob jokes almost from the off.

Got bored with 20 minutes to go.

a few laughs here and there but overall a major disappointment.!

The A-Z of Cool Computer Games

5.0 out of 5 stars what a nostalgia trip, 14 Sept. 2011
I loved it - a diverting history of the early days of home computing and gaming with (for a change) an emphasis on the British scene and not the American...

particularly recommended for men in their mid forties I'd say...

5.0 out of 5 stars like Monty Pythons historical sketches..., 14 Jun. 2011
The sketches remind me of Monty Python except HH is genuinely funny and not just 'clever' for the sake of it.

A Short History Of Nearly Everything (Bryson)

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but not as good as COSMOS, 4 May 2011
I read this and really enjoyed it. Perfect popular science book.

What a surprise when later, I read Carl Sagan's Cosmos (also a great book)....and the sense of Deja Vue - suggest Mr B has been very 'inspired' by Mr Sagan?
