Indiana Jones: The Ultimate Collection [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars We'll pretend Crystal Skull never happened...., 13 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's Indy.... what more do you want?!

Personally, it could do without Crystal Skull, but as I would happily have paid this for the "real" Indy films, I consider it a slightly odd free addition to my trilogy box-set.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother getting this., 13 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Takes longer to use, and is less effective than, a manual wet shave. Only redeeming feature was that it was half-price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - but not accurately described., 13 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not quite as advertised (for example there was no ladder, despite being mentioned in the product description) but easy to construct, seems stable, and the kids seem to love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money - does exactly what I needed it to., 3 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considering the price, this is some seriously good kit.

By default it works as a wireless access point, but it also functions as a bridge or repeater. Personally, I see no reason for the WPS support, but every device seems to have it now, so I suppose that it has to be included.

Signal strength extremely good, even through 3 walls and at a distance of around 30 meters. Clear communication in an extremely heavily populated area where the odds of getting a clear or lightly used channel are at best remote.

Incidentally I bought this to replace the BT Business Hub (I have a PROPER firewall, thanks BT!) and it blows that thing out of the water.

4.0 out of 5 stars Content Brilliant - Shame about the repeated threats of prosecution, 3 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought and paid for this DVD box-set, so why do I have to sit through the "You shall not download a car" crap (and all of the adverts) every time I want to watch it?!

Fortunately, if you play DVDs on a PC you skip all of that nonsense and enjoy the actual TV show that you paid for.

When will the studios learn, piracy is not killing the media industry, the media industry is.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good I ordered it twice, 15 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a set for the novice and amateur-level lockpicking enthusiast. As such there are a few things the more experienced locksmith would notice by there absence, but you can make those yourselves, right ;-)

It is particularly good for those just starting out, although the tensioner profile could be a little better.

Other than that though, this is a great set to have in your bag when doing physical intrusion testing as 85% of locks will be opened with this kit.

Mastering Windows Network Forensics and Investigation
Mastering Windows Network Forensics and Investigation
Price: £28.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, even if you already know most of this stuff, 15 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is very difficult to marry the disciplines of network / server administration and digital forensics, however this book manages it very well. It goes into enough technical detail so that an investigator will know what to look for and who to speak to, while not drowning them in to much unneeded detail. At the same time, it covers the investigative process in enough detail that an enthusiastic admin will avoid compromising evidence, while being able to communicate fluidly and clearly with the investigators.

This is not a book for complete newcomers to either discipline, but more for those who have a basic understanding of one, and a deep understanding of the other.

Well worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super fast and super quiet, 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very worthy purchase. Bought to replace an ailing laptop sata hdd. Comparing clean installs, with data from the original clean install on the previous hard disk, and boot time alone is 5 times as fast!

1.0 out of 5 stars Did anybody actually proof this?!, 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reading this book was a seriously hard slog. The language is dreadful, and the layout suggests that the Kindle version is nothing more than an OCR copy of a printed book. There are page footers in the paragraph text, for example.

Avoid this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really for the UK, 30 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Generally good, form factor is great for portability and it is quiet and reasonably cool. The mixture of USB3 & eSATA is great for interconnectivity too.
Unfortunately, it comes with a far east (not sure which country) power brick, and two EU adaptors. No UK adapter.

While this is relatively easy to rectify, it results in a rather unsteady & unwieldy power brick, as well as looking less than ideal.
