I heard Sober the other day and remembered what a brilliant song it was. Upon getting this album, however, I found that the dry, paranoid, funk-inflected hard rock contained on this disc now sounds terribly dated. At the time of its release, though, I remember them as being one of the few bands doing proper hard rock whilst everyone else was pretending to be an indie-punk grunge band. I'd like to try their other albums, so this hasn't put me off them and Sober is still a monster of a song!

My 2009 Mac Pro came with 6Gb RAM installed and it was struggling when managing video files, so I thought I'd jump in and get hold of these huge 16Gb sticks. The memory was really easy to install and the Mac's memory assistant also detected which slots I should use (1 and 5, not slots 1 and 2 as the Mac Pro documentation stated). Opening audio workstation software, which scans for plugins was breathtakingly fast, and general usage for video is very much improved. Adding more memory and moving to SSDs (my next step) is like breathing life into your existing, possibly ageing, machine.

The product works and was delivered quickly. That accounts for the two stars.

I don't like it because it is one of the more expensive SSD housings available and is vastly overpriced for what it is. The plastic has many sharp edges and the top doesn't really click in place or get removed with any reassuring solidity.

Upon fitting it to my spare early 2009 Mac Pro drive sled and connecting a 256Gb Samsung 840 Pro SSD as described in the pictorial instruction sheet, the dock and drive didn't connect initially without some working of the dock so that it lined up with the connections on the Mac Pro's main board.

After power-up, the drive wasn't recognised… Read more
