3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, 5 Mar 2011
Hoya are a good brand and this item is consistent with their other lines. It's of reasonable build quality and produces a nice polarising effect. I find the outer ring spins round a little too easily. Also, as someone else has mentioned, it's not great with the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens since at 10mm it produces substantial vignetting. I too have upgraded after for this reason alone. It was great while I was starting out but you get what you pay for.

This is a product of good quality and hopefully the bristles will last some time. You need to stand on it at the same time as whiping one of your feet for the best effect. It will work well for most sizes of feet. I'm a size 10 and it's fine but much more and you may have problems, perhaps not. Probably best to open outside if you buy this as the bag it came in was ripped and bits went everywhere.

Would recommend.

I bought this board partly due to necessity. My Core 2 Duo died and my new Q9650 wasn't compatible with my EVGA 680i but there aren't many ATX boards out there with a decent feature set for socket 775, 6 SATA ports and is reasonbly priced. This has ticked most of the boxes. The high performance gaming boards for socket 775 aren't really available anymore but this one does a good job. The BIOS, whilst not the most intuitive, is quite complete with good settings available for tweaking the CPU and memory speeds so is a good choice if you want to overclock your system.

Installing was relatively easy, the layout is fairly standard and easy to figure out. My main issue with… Read more
