Perfect, just what you expect from a Box. Keeps those crown jewels safe. What else can be said really? It's like Ronseal - does exactly what it says on the tin.

4.0 out of 5 stars GRID 2 - Fun, Action packed racer., 31 May 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Grid 2 (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
So after playing the original Grid to death my ears picked up after hearing Grid 2 was on the way. Upon starting the game, the first thing that annoyed me was the fact that if you want to change the graphics settings you first have to complete the first race and complete a driver profile. No worries though, Codemasters' auto-configure of the graphics settings is ok - I just like to push my card that little further.

The next thing that slightly disappoints me is the fact there isn't a cockpit cam. Shame, I really was hoping to use my racing wheel with this (Not to say a wheel wouldn't work - i haven't bothered trying)

However, once I got over these two very slight niggles the actual gameplay, graphics and overall career setup is superb. As a previous reviewer stated - it isn't really a sim rather an arcade racer. It is a fun mix of both. Compared to the original Grid, it is a little more serious especially with mechanical damage on. Try not to bounce off too many barriers or you'll have punctures or suspension failure. The career setup is exactly like the original Grid where you need to work your way up. Multiplayer is highly enjoyable - although there are some guys out there who love to send you into a crash barrier - meh, that's life ;)

If you're looking for a fun racer with hours of fun then this is certainly the game for you. Compared to NFS I prefer Grid, it just has that little bit more realism to it. Give it a go :)

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, 26 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cant get better value for money with this card! I wanted to upgrade from a 256MB ATI HD4200 with 350W PSU, and was a bit hesitant to do it. But I purchased a 600W Corsair PSU and this card, and I havent looked back once. Super easy to insert into the bog standard Desktop PC, and installed drivers off the net. The card runs silently, and with the new Corsair PSU, my PC is practically silent, apart from the odd noise from the HDD.

Tried running GTA IV with previous card, had to run it on ultra low graphics, now able to run on med-high graphics at around 40 FPS with 4x AA.

Previous Specs: AMD Quad Core, 350W PSU, 256MB GPU, 3GB RAM, 1TB HDD (WEI 3.9)

New Specs: AMD Quad Core, 600W PSU, 1GB GPU, 3GB RAM, 1TB HDD (WEI 5.9)

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking for great cheap laptop? Well this is it!, 26 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After having my previous Acer Aspire (7000 series) laptop for a good 5 years, I thought it was about time to treat myself to a new Laptop. Opening the box, you would think that the Laptop was a toy, because its soo light. But take it out of its wrapping, and whoa! What a piece of kit! Booting it up for the first time after configuring it, it truly is worth every penny! 6GB of RAM, 620GB HDD that IS NOT partitioned (well done Acer!), and a Dual Layer writing drive - what more do you need??? This machine boots within a minute and is ready to do whatever you want.

This Laptop will suit people who are wanting to do the basic tasks, eg. Word Processing, Browsing the Internet, Skype, iTunes and exceed all expectations. For users who want to use programs that are more RAM dependant (eg Adobe Photoshop) this laptop works wonders with it. I fully recommend this laptop to anyone thinking of going to University or college, or even someone who runs a business. Brilliant crystal clear screen, and HD Webcam (or so it is claimed)

All in All, a superb notebook and certainly deserves a 10/10 for value for money!
Build quality is a bit dodgy when it comes to the disc drive, but most laptops are like that now.
Keyboard is very flush and the touchpad is very responsive. I recommend considering this over any other Laptops in the £400 - £450 price range!

5.0 out of 5 stars Little loud, but does the job!, 11 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a device! A little bit tricky with trying to put the 3 pin plugs in, but it certainly does the job.

It is a little bit loud, so if the device is going to be behind your head (In a few cars) then it can be irritating if your trying to use a DVD player or Laptop and earphones.

But overall, amazing.

Can't really complain about these darts. Perfect for the novice players out there, or those who just want another set for the bedroom dartboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 11 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This device may be cheap, but OMG it is absolutly brilliant. The quality of the picture is great!

It works with Windows Media Centre, and as I have an Xbox 360 - i can watch TV via my PC on my Xbox 360. In addition you can record with it in either the supplied software, or with WMC.

Another thing which amazed me was the size of the device. Its tiny! I haven't really tried the supplied aerial as I have another indoor one, and it works fine with it.

Would really recommend this to any student or anyone who just wants to be able to watch freeview on their PC for under £20!
