2.0 out of 5 stars Good Concept/Shame about the Speed, 25 April 2008
The Trancend does well in terms of looks, the sliding USB socket and the utilities provided with the hardware. However, all these advantages are wiped out by the exceptionaly slow write speed. The drive is indeed virtually unusable for large data transfers. Although I havn't suffered with data corruption problems that I have seen reviewed elsewhere,
I cannot recommend this product.


Fearless (The Lost Fleet, Book 2)
Fearless (The Lost Fleet, Book 2)

3.0 out of 5 stars Why Jack Campbell?, 30 Jun. 2007
Cees Jan Mol's review below is spot on. The story line is good, but then you would expect this of any tale based (even loosely) on the Retreat of the Ten Thousand. However, the writing itself is strangely immature and I had a real stuggle with myself in justifying the puchase of book 2 after reading the first book. The story though is compelling and no doubt I will purchase book 3 to follow the fleet's fate. So mabye John G. Hemry (writing under the pseudonym of John Campbell) knows what he is doing afterall. One question remains, given Mr Hemry's reputation in the field of military science fiction, why the pseudonym?
