5.0 out of 5 stars a heavyweight hip hop herculean, 14 April 2011
This review is from: Naughty By Nature (Audio CD)
i dont know if its just me, possibly, but this is one of my all time favourite hip hop albums, probably due to the fact this takes me right back to the hot summers of the early nineties skateboarding with friends, and this album amongst others was getting a lot of play, some classic tunes, the opening yoke the joker is a menacing and quality opening to what is a strong album overall

standout tracks for me are

yoke the joker
let the hos go
guard your grill
1,2,3
uptown anthem

this stirs some halcyon days inside this one, and just for that its worth owning

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous, Gets better the more you listen to it, 21 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
superb album, the first time i heard it, it was catchy but didnt to hit the right nerve first time round

the second time i heard it, i knew i must own it.

and everytime since it seems to get better and better

riffs, vocals and beats that will get inside your head and make your toes tap, fingers strum or wrists flick if you are an air drummer like me

a quality album which flows from the first track to the last with no poor tracks to break up the journey

5.0 out of 5 stars no hassle, good quality and does what its meant to, 11 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
ok, yes, i too, got the Euro plug which isnt ideal, as i had to fish out a travel adapter, which does make the connection less mechanically stable than a good old uk 3 pinner.

apart from that installation on a win 7 64 box was simple and hassle free.

i havent dabbled in the provided authoring and playback software, it was just the drive install, as i use other burning software

inserted the install CD, auto-played, popped up with a install now option, went through it automatically, installed 'turbo' usb feature and that was that really, drive was recognized, i did the firmware update as advised by the tool and was up and running in ~5 mins.

i have burnt several BD discs, a TDK BD-RE 50GB several times, putting various films on, i also used the included verbatim 25GB BD-R

and have burnt to my rewritable blu ray approximately 15 times, full capacity, in less than a week and all has been 100% perfect thus far, with the resultant discs working on philips standalones and sonys ps3

great drive, stylish, and well built and quiet to my ears, no complaints at all, apart from the silly plug issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars goes to show that sometimes true gems certainly do go unnoticed, 24 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Triangle [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
what a great piece of filmaking, not so far removed from something that chris nolan would bring to screen in terms of the intricacy and years of development and mind bending cleverness, surely i dont overstate by much, if at all

this would certainly make my dream night of sitting in front of the big screen tv with some popcorn with friends for a thoroughly time loop themed night

a trio of films would follow, a PRIMER to begin with, followed by a TRIANGLE, and then a dash of TIMECRIMES for good measure

thank god this film was made and that there are others like it

brilliant, a film that scales well with its audience, meaning, if you want to watch it in an unnatached way you can, and its a good little thriller, but if you are someone who wants to invest a little bit of intelligent involvement in it, then you will be richly rewarded with the subtle symbols, clues, and red herrings and can find different theories to indulge the film theorist in you

one of my favourite films for sure!

3.0 out of 5 stars the poor mans rise of the foot soldier, 14 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Bonded By Blood [DVD] (DVD)
will keep this short and sweet, or should that be bitter!

this is half the film that ROTFS was, blatant role miscasting, should have swapped some of the actors into other characters for a better fit

for me this is the worst essex boys affiliated film so far, and i have an avid interest in the background, read the books and seen all the films, i love these types of films and expected to really like it, i am no film snob, as i even really enjoy some danny dyer performances and his films as proof ;-)

lightweight!

5.0 out of 5 stars superb and one click simple conversion, 16 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i had thought this may be something that wouldnt quite work, a bit of a bodge

but all fears were alleviated upon using it to cut my PAYG vodafone sim down to micro sim for my iphone 4.

it was literally one nice firm press down, akin to stapling a ruck of papers. and it was done with a satisfying click as it punched out the sim, it was a perfect, clean cut job and it was prepared in that instant for immediate insertion in the iphone.

does what it says on the tin, and is a much better way than using hands free with a sharp kitchen implement.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb, one touch now, so much easier than previous model, 6 Aug. 2010
fantastic bit of kit

so much easier to use than the previous model. this is literally one touch power on and then it connects to what is available, suffice to say you need to setup the relevant details from its inbuilt web interface, but is so much easier to use and to read thanks to the detail text screen as opposed to coloured icons this time round, shows you live update of that sessions usage.

highy recommended for its portability, can now be charged off a usb port and used simultaneously also

very configurable interface for security and other pertinent settings, having owned the previous version, i would buy this solely for the new features even if i was getting along ok with the previous model.

seel your old one and get this, you can pick these up for under £40!

chalk and cheese.

1.0 out of 5 stars avoid. even the place i bought from on return admitted they were flakey, 30 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
awful things. just avoid. even with all the firmware updates. and days and days of chasing your tail trying all the different settings, thinking you have now fathomed it. bought 3 pairs of these and they seemed to get more unstable the more i added, contrary to the guff

they drop connection at will and change speed like the wind, very unstable.

when i returned them all, the engineers that inspect them to ensure they are faulty, even they commented that were not upto much

one of the pairs i had also got very hot to the touch.

i am now happily living with higher performance, via on paper, lesser spec devolo 200mbps units, couldnt be happier.

just to add, this was when i was living in a new build all on the same ring mains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and a superb fit and finish, 24 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i was very hesitant to plump for a 'typical' see through silicone type case for my new shiny ipad and have to admit i actually bough this as an interim item, as my ipad was due and my leather case was on a long preorder which kept getting delayed (not via amazon) so bought this so i could get the ipad soon as it was opened into something protective

but now my leather case has arrived, the interim product has just become the keeper and is fantastic

it keeps the unit nice and slim, its fits like a glove, with no sag or loose areas, very tight and sharp looking

its extremely clear so the design isnt hidden, the port cutouts and raised buttons over the volume and sleep switch are responsive and well shaped and placed, there is no stick or need to press more than without, it gives a circa 2mm lip raised above the screen level all the way around so even if you lay it down on facing down, creen wont contact surface

lovely texture, a dichotomy to say this, but its a fairly glossy finish but has grip and slight friction (in a very good way) with your hands, which means it increases gripability over it being naked, i am impressed with the material, its my first TPU product, i believe its called TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) which is a high quality and not some creasable cheap silicone (which, again, means it doesnt pickup dust particles and lint) like a sticky silicone

highly recommended for protection, fit, design and quality of build!

5.0 out of 5 stars fine for the job, 14 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
no problem with the actual cable, extended my infra red extender cable by the required 10m, the photo shown for this item, depicts the cable as being a thin 'one core'/'single barrel' sheathing, which i was particularly after so as to be able to squeeze it into an existing, already full to the brim length of trunking, the actual item i received was 'two core'/'twin barrel' making the cable circumference bigger than expected and harder to work with, picky i know, but seeing as i purposely paid more for this than another that showed twin barrel i was a bit disapointed. other than that, cable is perfect and does its job.

my seller was ConneXxions FYI.
