Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked flawlessly and didn't waste any of the previously paid for security cover as it started on the day after the old (2014) version ran out even though the licence code was loaded before the 2014 version ran out. And it runs in the background unobtrusively.

3.0 out of 5 stars Design flaw in Guillemot Hercules XPS USB 2.0 35 Speakers, 11 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The speakers themselves are quite well made and packaging is good (and mainly recyclable). However, their design uses 2 leads - one for the audio and a separate one (USB) for the power. Both are connected to the PC's ground and this causes a ground loop noise that is irritating in use.
These speakers obviously can work well, as demonstrated when I used them with a seperate mains driven USB power supply (preferably 1Amp or greater), but this increases the cost and does not give the benefit of being totally powered from the PC - hence 3 stars only!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and good looking Ram for Z77 motherboard, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Paid more for this version to get 2133 speed rather than 'std' slower versions, needing it to definitely work at 1600. No problem in running at all on a new Z77-d3h mobo/Intel 3770K/ with Win7 CPU . Did try at 2133 and it worked brilliantly. Full marks, even looks good! Might get in the way of larger CPU heatsink coolers due to slightly raised height of fins. Obviously no problem with stock CPU cooler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Space - nearly as good as Half Life!, 26 July 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dead Space (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Dead Space is must-have for FPS (First Person Shooter) fans. Much is true of what others say here, so I'll not repeat it. It is a bit gory, so not suitable for youngsters, but a reasonable entertaining story. The atmosphere is great, along with fabulous noises and music.
Once you've played it once, you get an upgrade of equipment, etc. that allows for playing a bit easier on the more difficult settings. This happens every time the game is completed - which I've now done 3 times (and still enjoy!). Well worth the money and better than a lot of other (newer) game - buy it!
