5.0 out of 5 stars Manga Studio EX alias Clip Studio Paint Pro, 5 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Manga Studio EX is the same as Clip Studio Paint EX. The former name is being phased out and replaced by the latter, but the software is identical. Purchasing this Manga Studio EX box thus entitles for free updates of Clip Studio Paint EX, using the installation code contained inside the box. Updates are available on the website of distributor SmithMicro. These Manga Studio EX boxes are old by now (mine apparently from 2013), and therefore users will need to update them anyway. The main reason for me buying this boxed version was the price, which was more competitive than if I had directly purchased the software from the distributor.

The program itself is amazing (still much to learn though) and works fine on Windows 8.1 with a Wacom Cintiq 13HD tablet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy!, 23 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No instructions included, and comes with a bag of (useless) screws so I was a bit puzzled at first. But works like a charm with a Lenovo T400 (I put the T400's original HD in the bay, as I had installed a new SSD internally). Looks good from the outside, the panel matches perfectly. The light is extremely weak though, nearly impossible to see even in dim lighting.

2.0 out of 5 stars A word of warning about Updates, 20 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gran Turismo 6 (PS3) (Video Game)
Received on 19 November 2014, this seems to be a fairly old/early version of the disc, because I inserted it today and the PS started downloading 13 patches, the first of which had a size of 1,3 GB (yes, gigabyte) and the following were not much smaller! Download and installation of the patches lasted some 6 hours, despite a good WLAN connection. For such extreme cases as this, in my opinion the publisher should have recalled the old discs and swapped them against updated versions. I fail to see the advantage of purchasing a disc, if then anyway everything is downloaded.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not convincing, 30 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought 09/2012. After two years, my verdict is that the quality is not good enough. OK in full sunlight, but under lower light conditions the camera adds a lot of noise (like an old mobile phone's built-in camera), and focusing is hit-and-miss. really. Strange, since I am extremely happy with the predecessor Canon Powershot E1.

3.0 out of 5 stars All looks, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sturdy and well made, looks gorgeous on my Gretsch as it matches the chrome finish. However, the cable is noticeably noisier than the Cordial/Neutrik 3m cable I bought for approximately the same price. Also, the straight plug's casing is very smooth and slippery, therefore if you have a guitar with a recessed jack connector it might be difficult to pull the plug back out.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! How difficult can it be??!, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's unbelievable how difficult it can be to find a working mouse pad nowadays. Most are way too thin so they curl up or do not lie flat; they are way too light and missing a sticky rubber bottom so they keep sliding around; and usually have a surface that comes off in time. This one does everything right, and therefore I'm going to buy another one for my hobby corner. Neat. Pity there aren't more colours to choose from (currently white, black, brown)!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for careful use, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Victor Score Board - Blue (Sports)
Got this for out volleyball team, as I couldn't find any affordable alternative. It's big and simple, with a few design issues:
- The numbers are on thin cardboard/thick paper. If not flipped carefully, the holes will rip. Fine if you have a dedicated judge who can be careful, but not good if the players flip this themselves in a rush while playing. You might consider adding some adhesive plastic reinforcement rings to protect the holes.
- The rings can be opened, but hinges and openings are in the way when flipping, and numbers tend to get stuck/ripped. Before use I'm turning all the rings so that the thickest part is out of the way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Works on its own only, 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tried with different PCs and different floppy disks. Bottom line: It technically works, when you format the floppies with this very drive. But I could not read any of my other floppy disks with this drive. And disks formatted with this USB drive are not recognized by any other floppy disk drives. Seems to be a case of head misalignment or something... so while it technically works, it cannot be used for anything since its primary purpose is to read existing old floppy disks, or to transfer data to legacy devices.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too basic for the price, 4 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as I'm living in Finland and was not sure whether the timezone on Braun's radio controlled alarm clocks could be changed. This one looks nice, very basic and small, a breeze to set up. 12/24 hrs display. Good light. Biggest issue is the screen, which is extremely dark and thus basically unreadable, unless your night lamp is on (see picture). All in all quite pricey for such a basic and under-performing clock. Note this is not a Braun - it is produced (somewhere) "under license by Zeon Ltd." Oh, and check the packaging for the included battery stuck into the bottom - I nearly threw the package away without realizing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, this is not a toy, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item description is a bit misleading. This is not a toy (this is even explicitly mentioned on the package), despite being advertised as such. Not because it is fragile - actually it seems quite sturdy -, but rather because the robot is not articulated at all, i.e. you cannot move the legs nor the head, which disappointed me. The arms can be rotated, but not bent. So this is rather a collectors' shelf item. It even includes a plastic platform disc to put the robot on.

If you are looking for an articulated Mazinger, it might be better to buy something like the articulated Shin Mazinger Z (which I own), which in my opinion also has a much more beautifully crafted head than this one's.

As this is not a toy, I have had to give low toy ratings, since my son will not have much fun with it. For collectors, it might be worth the buy, if you accept the slightly ugly head.

Edit on 06 Nov 2013: My son managed to unblock the stuck legs and head and to rotate them sideways - that's still not real articulation, but at least the stance can be changed somewhat. The figure has lasted playing and traveling very well so far. The shuttle lost one wing though, and since they're tiny it's impossible to find. All in all I've upgraded the "fun" rating from 1 to 4 since my son is mostly happy with it.
