Integral Noir 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive by Integral
I hunted around for a USB stick that was cheap in the 64GB range. This is precisely that. The fact that it is USB 3.0 is basically a bonus to me.

I have both USB3 and USB2 sockets available on my computer. In either socket, I saw write speeds around 25MB/sec, which, as far as USB sticks go, is pretty good. My previous stick managed a paltry 7MB/sec.

The differences can be seen in the read speeds. In a USB2 socket, it maxed out at about 59MB/sec (basically saturated the available bandwidth). In the USB3 socket, that increased to about 80MB/sec. That's pretty good, especially at the prices this product is advertised at.

Obviously, these speeds are for large… Read more

I think my view of "The Newsroom" is chequered by having already watched "The West Wing", which is one of my all-time favourite TV shows. If you are in that position with me, be prepared to both love and loathe "The Newsroom".

I don't think it does much good giving this (or any TV show) a 'definitive' ranking. That sort of thing is thoroughly subjective. However, in a broad stroke sort of way, I think it is within the scope of any review to comfortably say that this is a brilliant TV series worthy of my more general claim that BSG 2003 is a top 3 sci-fi show and overall sits inside the top 20 of TV dramas as a whole.

First of all, don't come here expecting the 70s airy-fairy original. I remember laughing with incredulity at the re-runs when I caught them on TV as a child. If it's stretching a 10-year old's imagination to breaking point, it probably isn't the best. No, this is the grown-up's version. In… Read more
