5.0 out of 5 stars No problems for me, 2 Jan 2013

Heard mixed reviews about this drive, I haven't had any problems and copying across the USB3 cable is on par performance to internal SATA connection to hard drives. Backing up a 2Tb iTunes library was no problem at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This motherboard has it all, Bluetooth, wifi, thunderbolt, usb3..... Very easy to overclock! My only criticism is that the additional 4 sata3 ports on the separate marvel chip cannot be used for raid, limiting you to 2 sata3 and 2 sata2 ports run by the the intel chipset for raid. With SSD's and max performance that really leaves you with just the 2 intel sata3 ports to play with. Saying that running 2 intel 520 ssds on those ports in raid 0 is very fast without the need for a very expensive dedicated raid controller card. If you can live with that limitation there is nothing else to disappoint you. Very well packaged and nothing left out of the box like many motherboards.

This is a quality router that is very easy to setup has good range and extra options which most people will never use. I bought this purely for quality and range and it has delivered!

This review is from: Logitech diNovo Mini (Electronics)
This makes using a pc for home theatre and music a practical reality! Once I got used to it I wonder how I managed without it. This is one of those rare gadgets that I actually continue to use unlike so many which end up in a box.

I bought this camera at the same time as a similar priced Nikon s3300 and the display on this camera completely trumped the Nikon. It may not be as stylish as the Nikon but it beats it on build quality. Photos I found were pretty comparable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The photos do not do this product justice. It is VERY high quality build, it looks and feels premium on par with my BOSE. The sound isn't the punchiest but is well balanced. One of the very few devices with iPad,iPod,iPhone, CD, DAB. After seeing it in hand I would have assumed a much higher price tag!

Very fast, reliable printer. Good print quality. Good build quality. Cheap to run with very high capacity toners. Makes more expensive brands seem a rip off.


Brookside - Most Memorable Moments (30th Anniversary Edition) [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly missed! More please!, 2 Jan 2013
As a sample of episodes this brings back strong memories of why I loved Brookside so much. Every episode in this collection takes you back to the characters we loved and wanting to watch the following and preceding episodes (sadly we can't). I truly hope this is just the beginning of a DVD collection. It seems such a shame that the tv networks repeat so much rubbish yet Brookside which was the soap ground breaker is still left in the archives. That's the real tragedy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Build Quality...but!, 4 Oct 2012
This case is HUGE and heavy but very easy to install anything and feels and looks something special.

Note of caution!

There is an issue with the fan controller not controlling some third party fans. American consumers get an automatic upgrade to a revised version with Cooler Master support. To my dissapointment European customers don't unless there is an issue with the fans you have. Problem there being you may change the fans 12 months down the road, have the issue and have no come back or claim to the revised controller. This issue has been known for some time yet mine still came with the version known to have issues! Disgusting that American consumers are treated better than European!

If it hadn't been for this I would have definetely given it 5 out of 5! Shame!
