4.0 out of 5 stars Great design, simple to install, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good design, especially with switch to turn on/off. I have had a problem where the drive disappears or disconnects from my PC during large copies but cannot say for certain what the issue is. It is a very fast , new laptop with usb3 ports so cannot say fir certain whether it is the drive, caddy or laptop.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh!, 24 Mar 2014
This review is from: Titanfall (Xbox One) (Video Game)
After years of being continually disappointed by the constant "jam tomorrow" promises of COd, I was hugely looking forward to this game. However I fear that to a certain extent it is a case of the Emporers New clothes. Whilst being fun initally and have a number of innovation I do not see this having the long-term viability of COd/Halo franchises without a major change of emphasis towards the "pilots" and away from the Titans.
Whereas in past COD/halo multiplayers I have looked around and wondered where the last 6 hours went, I find 30 mins or so of this game all I want before I go play something else.
Graphically it is mediocre other than in still-frame, the gameplay suffers huge framerate drops and I am concerned that the so-called "next-gen" consoles are anything but nex-gen in graphics procesing capability

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Upgrade from Laptop std disk, 17 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for high-spec Dell M4800 WorkStation which already had Plextor 256GB SSD OS drive and to replace the 1TB 5400rpm seagate mechanical disk which was hampering the overall performance and experience of the laptop.
All the previous reviews are pretty much spot on regarding the speed, especially compared with non-SSD drives, so I'll concentrate on a couple of issues I had which hopefully will assist others.
Firstly although the disk name is M500 and is marketed as 480GB, in Windows you will have 447GB usable space after formatting.No big deal but just something to keep in mind when considering which version to buy.

Secondly despite being an IT pro I did have some difficulty getting the working. Installation into the M4800 bay was a breeze but did require the spacer that came provided. After booting Windows immediately recognized the drive but I had BSOD when attempting to format the drive. Any subsequent attempts to format or add a drive letter was met with a meaningless and confusing error message about the disk administrator console needing to be refreshed. I deleted the volume, uninstalled the disk a couple of times but to no avail. To cut a long story short I upgraded the Intel Rapid Storage technology driver and software and after rebooting it formatted first time without issue.
One thing I will say is that during the process I contacted both Crucial and Dell. Crucial I must say were (surprisingly) less than useless and could not offer any viable or helpful assistance at all (send back to Amazon!!). Dell on the other hand were pretty damned good to the point of remotely connecting to me and trying various option in real time. I had to go out so had to abandon that session and subsequently found the fix myself but fairly confident Dell would have sorted it as they were starting to look at RST before we ended.

Anyway hopefully Crucial are better than this incident as I had previously heard good things about their support.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 1 Feb 2014

Had great difficulty finding a gate for our Victorian era stairs due to most being designed to fit symmetrical spaces or being too wide. This has the flexibility to allow fitting between different widths at the top and bottom rails and away from the newel post.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poorly written, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cliff Morgan is one of my 2 all time sporting heroes, the other being John Charles. This admiration extends to his quauties as a man as much as his sporting and broadcasting prowess. However I found this very poorly articulated and difficult to read. Hopefully a professional biographer will one day serve Cliff with the memoir he deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to last forever, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On my 360 i was using rechargable batteries and was quite happy but on the xb one the same sets were discharging after a couple of hours. I thought the controller was faulty and got it changed but the same results occured. However after getting this pack a full charge lasts days and days. Very impressed

3.0 out of 5 stars Case v good for back of phone, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a bit of a mixed bag but for the money you cannot complain much. The case fits very well, feels good to hold and actually looks pretty sleek. It gives quite good protection to rhe back and sides of the phone but really it is anyones guess as to how well it would sustain any real impact as I am not about to test it!!
That said the screen protectors are pretty rubbish. They are slightly too large and while you can get a good "middle" fit without raises or bubbles the edges never completely flatten. Also when removing the final tab after applying on both protectors it left a sticky residue.


One Summer: America 1927
One Summer: America 1927
by Bill Bryson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 9.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly facinating, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If presented with the challenge of recording the events and personalities involved in such a brief period of time most writers would struggle to produce anything at all let alone anything approaching this length and of such detail and quality.
However Bryson is a master of presenting the apparently ordinary and exposing the extraordinarily. This book is crammed with the most fascinating details, anecdotes and brief histories of events and people that most non americans would probably have barely or never heard of. In addition he also illuminates them in the context of the period giving a real and thoroughly absorbing and entertaining vision of how life was in that place at that time.
Finally the book is written with Bryson's trademark fluidity and conversational style making it a pleasure to turn the pages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Identical 360versionat almost double the price, 8 Dec 2013
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Firstly if you have a 360 buy that version. It is around 18 cheaper, looks almost the same and has a much larger online population. Don't believe the hype about dedicated servers for the xb1 version and how they will make lag history etc. Either they are not online or it makes no difference. The gameplay is the same frustrating, but addictive and rage-inducing bs from previous versions. Lag and/or lag compensation continually leaves me a second or so behind the action and I have 100mb fibre Internet connection.
Campaign is ludicrously bad on just about every level.
If you thought you have left the blops 'shoot first die first cr@p behind think again. You now have the 'no shots fired' deaths to deal with where you are frequently killed without any shots being fired at you to fnd on the killcam you havevbeen hosed firvover half a second. I am utterly bemused by the stats which shiw hiw most guns kill in 3 bulletts because i usually need around 20-25 to drop someone and even them they will often turn arojnd and kill me. Now i'll readily admit i am not a great player but there is sonething seriously amiss with the netcode of this game
If youd ont do multilayer you really must not waste you hard earned on this game.
If you do play online you will get better value but the game is still another 'jam tomorrow' offering from iw. Maps are huge and unengaging. There are too many playlists with hardly anyone in them. Even the main playlists like tdm and domination only have between 1000-3000 players on worldwide at any time and often the numbers are in the lisqt hundreds. For xbl I think this will be a problem as so many people are migrating to the ps4 because they have been convinced (wrongly in my view) that it is far more powerful rtc etc. Anyway cannit really recommend as a very average game overall
