4.0 out of 5 stars Great looks not as great usability, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Appearance wise, it's design is fantastic, with a premium look and feel, great finishes and presentaion and fantastic minimal design.
Usability wise it could have some improvements, like the cable is way to short to realistically reach any computer that would require a hub, or USB port that is not in the close vicinity of the desk top (remember to buy an extra USB 3.0 extension chord). The need for a second connection for optional extra power source also detract from the otherwise clean minimal look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfull setting for a great story, 3 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Far Cry 3 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Good storytelling with great characters and the tropical island makes for a perfect scenario for it all to happen.
The progression is good, and the ever subtle humor here and there complements the hole experience.
Only complain is that the cool villain does not stick around till the end.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs constant online connection, 25 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Diablo III (PC/Mac DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Only bought this as a gift, would, not buy it for myself.
Needs constant online connection, depends on the Blizzard server availability, no offline game play support, I dislike games that enforce you to be online.
No warehouse opt-out games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast thumbdrive, suitable for portable apps, 31 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great thumbdrive, suitable as a backup solution or as a "carry all your home with you".
It is a bit large (in terms of physical size), may cause problems with other peripherals in contiguous USB ports, but it is also light and fast, and very sturdy with its metal body.

I lead a "nomadic computer life" divided between my home computer and work computer, but I like keeping my files, and most importantly my programs, and all it's settings handy and with me all the time. To accomplish this I use portable software (no installation needed, saves settings to the program folder) like the one provided at PortableApps.com, on a daily basis, even at home.
This is the first thumbdrive I used that is fast enough and suitable for running portable apps directly from it, it is not as fast as an external hard drive unfortunately (I notice a delay in certain actions, especially searching or indexing) which I did not notice with my external HDD over USB 2.0. Still it is very fast for running some pretty complex apps (Like Photo editing GIMP, Firefox and Blender 3D Modeling), even through USB 2.0 formatted with exFAT file system. (Will try soon with FAT and NTFS to see if there are any performance gains)

4.0 out of 5 stars Graphical beauty, 21 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crysis 2 (PC DVD) (Video Game)
One of the most beautiful games to date, excellent graphics and runs smoother that the original Crysis did with at time of launch.
I did like the settings of the first game better: paradisiacal open environments, lush forests, sandbox like progression and the non humanoid aliens.
The save point system can get a little penalizing or unforgiving at times, though the games is well balanced and interesting overall.
