1.0 out of 5 stars Impossible to give a good rating when it crashes within minutes, 28 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I never signed up to Beta test this, I expect a game to be pretty much bug free when it hits the shelves. Once again Ubisoft foregoes quality testing. Impossible to give a good rating when it crashes within minutes, another Ubisoft game realised too early in the development cycle. Wait a (long) while before you buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knocks your iPod into a tin hat, 19 Aug. 2014
Firstly, this is a great sounding digital audio player. Looks great to my eye. I'm using them with Grado RS-1 headphones, which are fairly demanding & they work brilliantly. I use ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec) for the moment but as yet not above 96/24. Even then the sound is great with a wide sound stage, deep clear bass, fine vocals & very clear distinction of instruments.

If you're using MP3 as I have seen someone reportedly doing, the you're wasting your time. It takes a bit of time & effort to load a couple of discs at a decent resolution & that's fair enough.

A word of warning however, don't use cheaper micro SD cards, I bought a couple to supplement the SanDisc 64gb cards that came with the device & the cheaper ones have been a nightmare. No issues with the SanDisc cards at all but the cheaper cards which seemed like a bargain have been a disaster, I've not managed to load anything on them without them crashing & losing 2/3 of the data already supposedly on them.

A serious piece of kit at a pretty good price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great TV, terrible book, 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killing 1 (Kindle Edition)
If the TV series was excellent then this balances out the equation. It obviously started from a script but it is written like one but at a GCSE level & a failing one at that. The language is woeful, the narrative awful... Just avoid.

OK, it is huge at nearly twice the size of most keyboards but the surface is excellent providing good control & speed & being practically slip proof. Worth the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars An all time favourite, 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my favourite Joe Haldeman novel by some distance, if not my favourite science fiction novel. Time dilation, distance from those at home who have changed attitudes over the time of the war, the military economy & the utter senselessness of war are amongst the themes clearly a parallel to Vietnam but done with some verve & vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DAC & headphone amp, real value for money, 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this with a classic iPod & Grado RS1 headphones with Apple lossless music & adding the E17 just improved both the sound & battery life of the iPod massively. I can't recommend this strongly enough. This just shows how mediocre the iPod's DAC is which is a shame, but add the E17 & you have a really good player.

3.0 out of 5 stars Error strewn, 27 Feb. 2014

Unfortunately the publisher did not see fit to proof read any of the books in this edition. The first book is good, the follow ups are merely OK & to my mind he didn't really know where to go with it. A missed opportunity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful but... It's a small but, though annoying in that the blue LEDs on the USB connections are very bright which is all well & good during the day but at night far too bright.
