Slow to start (in my opinion) after a action start but stick with it, it gets better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy motherboard to tinker with, 27 April 2016

Easy motherboard to tinker with. The only issues I had was the reset button connection to the case chassis (2 pin to three pin on the board) and as I am using water cooling the POST helpfully reminds me the CPU fan isn't working (even though disabled monitoring).

2.0 out of 5 stars Correspondingly ended up with a nice blister and aching achilles tendons for a week, 12 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had these a fews weeks now and made the mistake of running in them straight away on a long run without transitioning from normal trail running shoes. Correspondingly ended up with a nice blister and aching achilles tendons for a week. That aside they do accomodate my broad feet after slackening off the quick lace system, which I find great and easy to use as I always used to end up with loose laces. The grip on the shoes is great but you do have to of course change your running style to land midfoot as you can feel the stones and bumps in the road which cause you to try and land softer. Hopefully these will last longer than my last brand (which was 6 months)

Update April. No holes or wear and tear in the shoes however you do feel every stone in the ground (painfully) and unfortunately I have now developed heal pain so I have dropped my rating of them. Perhaps good over shorter distances

A solid pair of running shoes which protect the feet from the stones and abrasions of the trail. They fitted perfectly and I have had no issues with comfort. The only downside however is the surface grip which isn't great when running on or through degrees of mud but then again mud isn't the easiest thing to traverse. After taking them for a seven mile spin it felt more like fourteen miles with the extra slipping and pivoting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just as it should be, 9 Feb. 2013

If you have read the comics this is just like Dredd should be gritty and no nonesense. Although the film is set in one area throughout it has plenty of action and was a good watch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the hype, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Far Cry 3 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
From the outset the game looked promising, nice scenario to explore, bad guys to shoot and missions to solve. Unfortunately after playing through the games the extra missions and collecting tasks become a bit pointless after a while as you rapidly increase in skill anyway so don't need to complete all sub missions. The game has taken some normal facets which people have come to expect and expanded these out into annoying elements. For example at the start you can only carry one weapon until you craft extra holsters and you can only carry limited numbers of syringes. It certainly does have its good points though the trials missions are good fun, the explosions great and some of the later weapons nice and meaty. It certainly is no skyrim in that you can't interact with any character even though there are hundreds of them across the game and the cash rewards for loot are pretty low. Although after awhile you only need cash for ammo if you can't be bothered to loot dead bodies. So overall a fair game.

4.0 out of 5 stars A grippy and wet ride, 31 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After browsing through different kinds of trainers I plumped for these. They arrived on time and I was impressed with the very comforatble fit straight out of the box. Thet have a good trend on them which give good grip in the countryside but are obviously not designed for concrete. They are however not waterproof as such, as after you splash through wet fields and puddles your feet will soon be pretty wet, then it feels like you are running with sandals. This isn't a major problem as you soon dry out with running but initially it is a bit of a surprise.
