The Non-Sense Boy and His Somewhat Unusual Sister
The Non-Sense Boy and His Somewhat Unusual Sister

5.0 out of 5 stars A cracker!, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a cracking novel from an author who writes with Kim Stanley Robinson's level of scientific detail and Ian M. Banks humour. A great set of characters plonked in the middle of a dystopic world with a gripping narrative and some laugh out loud moments. Loved it.

New to Hamish Stuart, very impressed with this. Lovely song writing, excellent arrangements. Top marks. I am a convert to the cause.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps my FX-9590 happy, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First things first: this is not easy to install, the instructions are terrible and you better have kept the original backplate if you have an AM3 motherboard. Once it's assembled and in its place it nevertheless works well. I have a FX-9590 sitting on a Sabertooth 990FX R2, and so far the Phantek has managed to keep things stable and cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monolith of Features, 14 April 2014
I live in a remote area with pretty poor broadband coverage far away from the exchange (4.5 Mps max), so I was looking for a newish router that can handle shaky ADSL signals. As my Apple TV is hooked up wirelessly to the homenetwork (as is the server) I was looking for a router that can handle HD content quickly between the machines. On top of that there are 15 networked pieces of kit (tablets/laptops/mobiles/internet capable radios/TVs) needing stable access to networks.

Setup was a doddle, upgrade to the latest firmware took a few minutes, and since then (10 days) it's been stable, fast, and has not given me any reason for concern.

Yes, it's pricey, but the 802.11ac feature is handy for HD content (while there are loads of other things going on on the network) if you have ac capable hardware.

Very happy with choice. Would recommend.

I recently bought a Pismo for work and it's original battery was dead and needed replacement. This model works exceedingly well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mellow and Groovy (Oh they will hate this), 20 Mar 2014
This is a remix EP of five tracks from two recent albums: 2002's 'Echoes' (in a 30 year career, 2002 counts as recent) and 2013's 'Hideaway'. All tracks are remixed to a style I would describe as 'Fishy's Mellow House' and would as advertised be perfect for a lazy evening on the beach.

After 10 minutes of playing the EP I got up and made myself a nice Malibu Sunrise before getting out the pictures of the last beach holiday, so it definitely worked on me.

And it's certainly groovy, no getting around that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frugal, effective MoBo for everyday use, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this board in a small 3 terabyte server at home that serves mainly as an Itunes backup for the rest of the house. Frugal energy use, quiet built-in fan, fast enough to surf the net and watch movies in HD. Unbeatable value. No complaints.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ugly but works, 12 Mar 2013
I have had similar problems to the previous reviewers but on a new machine decided to give it another go because I really wanted to watch some live concert BluRays on my gaming rig. I am happy to report that my current version (12.0.2428.57) works well. The machine is on the upper range of performance capabilities, so CPU usage is hovering around 3%. With digital output into a 5.1 receiver sound is impressive. It is nevertheless still ugly and still trying to sell you content, but if you switch most of the banf off, it's a capable media player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, 16 Feb 2013
This review is from: Turn on the Tide (Audio CD)
This was my second BJH album and to this day has always been my favourite. Great songwriting, good production values (even for the early eighties) and fortunately less Christian waffle made the original LP a frequent visitor to my turntable. This version does not loose much compared to the original album pressing, so I see this as a good investment.
