5.0 out of 5 stars Gigabyte gt440, 25 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as an upgrade for my 7900 GS and it works well,runs cool and uses less power than my 7900 GS, while giving a boost in performance,very happy with this card.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works with my laptop, 29 Oct 2011
Have used this drive for the last 2 weeks on my laptop and works fine,had no problems with it being usb powered.would be 5 stars but as its a bit on the expensive side i think 4 stars is adequate.....
Have now been using the drive for a month and it works very well,no problems.
A year on and still going strong!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Science fiction, 25 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like many reviewers,i watched this mini series on the BBC back in the early 80s and it really got my imagination working,having just watched it again nearly 30 years on it has had the same affect on me all over again,it doesnt matter that its scientifically incorrect or that the special FX arent that good,you are taken along with the stories and characters,it grips your imagination.
The sound FX and music although a bit dated seem to still work really well,giving it a creepy but serene atmosphere.
I remembered every chapter from my childhood and it was great to see it hasn't diminished with time.Im glad i grew up in the 70s and 80s,this kind of series is what that time was all about,Space discovery,martians,a new frontier.If you remember this show,or like sci fi with a great story,buy the dvd now,its in 3 parts on 2 dvds and region 2 at last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good comeback album from J-LO,shame about the deluxe edition, 6 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love? (Audio CD)
Bought the deluxe edition as i wanted the extra tracks,unfortunately it comes in a flimsy thin card sleeve,not the usual plastic cd case with inlay..will look a bit shabby after its been in the car a while..musically i like the album,J-LO doing what she does best again..

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like Tdu then you'll love this too, 19 April 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I waited a while before buying this game as the reviews were very mixed,i enjoyed the first TDU game and its still a classic as far as im concerned,nothing comes close for a multiplayer car driving game.The new game is a bit different,it takes longer to get used to but persevere and it becomes worth it.Its not as easy to win races and amass loads of cash like the first game,this doesnt matter tho because it becomes very addictive after the first few hours.Ive now been playing for about 3 hours a day for a week and im hooked,it took a while to adapt to the changes from the first game but once you do its very enjoyable.Havent tried casino and dont think ill bother..Also have to say,ive not come accross any bugs or problems,all games have saved fine.Id give this game a 9/10,if you want to explore IBIZA and OAHU in great detail and collect and own the best cars in the world then this is for you,if you just like driving fast around a racing track then maybe you should try another less involved game.Buy it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts well but is not what it seems..., 30 Dec 2010
This is not the movie i expected,the two young actors were brilliant in thier roles and you certainly become fond of them as the film unfolds,especially the young girl,unfortunately the 'Event' near the end of the movie ruined our enjoyment,im not sure why the story goes in that direction or what the writer was trying to achieve,all i know is that its not a feel good movie even though there are attempts near the end to make it so,it fails and leaves you feeling empty and disappointed.I wouldnt watch this movie again,which is a shame because the young lead role was brilliant and is a future star in the making.

5.0 out of 5 stars Samsung le46c650, 27 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had this LCDTV for a couple of weeks now and i am very pleased with it,very smooth clear picture on SD channels and amazing on HD.
Freeview HD channels look good especially BBCHD which has the most HD productions.
The Internet TV is a useful addition,watching BBC iplayer or Youtube couldnt be simpler,just click on the samsung apps and hey presto!
The only weak point of this TV is the sound,which is acceptable but lacks depth,i use a separate sound source so this is not a problem for me.
I have not seen a better picture in this price range and even on standby this black screen looks shiny and beautiful.Highly recommended.
(just a quick note,if you have trouble recieving freeview HD channels,try connecting the ariel cable directly to the tv not via a PVR or sky box,this seemed to work for me.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the future Blu Ray, 27 Oct 2010
Have just watched all 3 movies on Blu Ray back to back on a Samsung 46 LCD,i also compared them to my DVD box set to see what improvements in picture quality there were.
If you have any concerns, dont worry,the Blu ray picture quality is superb,better than i expected for a mid 80s movie,take the opening sequence of the first movie,you can read the small print on the newspaper cuttings on the Docs wall and it just gets better after that.
It feels like the movie was made yesterday.
Had no problems playing all 3 movies and could fast forward and skip chapters fine too,not sure why some people have had probs,maybe its a Playstation fault,i used a Sony BD350.
Dont hesitate,buy it now,im off to watch all the amazing extras that come with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the bedroom, 7 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Received this yesterday as a replacement for my last ipod dock that wouldn't support my new Iphone,this charges and plays both my Ipod classic and my new Iphone 3GS,just what i needed.The only down side is that for the money i would have expected better sound quality,its not bad but doesn't come close to the standard of Klipsch ipod docks etc,there's a lack of bass,even with the turbo sound button pressed.There's also an FM radio which has RDS and works well,it also looks great especially with the blue back light at night.Overall im pleased with this product and would give it 8/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a top class producer!, 14 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Oracle Lives Uptown (Audio CD)
This cd is on repeat in the car and on my ipod most days,its very much typical William Orbit.if you liked his work on Madonnas Ray of Light or All saints Pure Shores etc then you should appreciate this album.The highlight for me is Optical illusions (Billy buttons mix).Buy it,its officially very cool and its a real grower! .
