4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as described., 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Aside from being a large case ('really' large given the contents) these are great value pc's
Quiet, of reasonable robustness not much else to say other than "you get what you see".

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong item was sent, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would like to review this item, however a different case was sent.
I indicated this to the supplier, and I also pointed out that the incorrect item was missing the screen protector that it should have come with in the package.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother trying to get a PS3 dualshock connected with drivers on your PC, get this instead!, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have officially given up trying to get an official PS controller to tak to my PC (via bluetooth) as it just did not work reliably.
This controller is modeled exactly like a dualshock from the ps2, and it quite simply works first time.

The *only* downside is that it uses standard AAA batteries (good), but it will not take rechargeables and allow charging via the USB interface.
That said it is such a small downside that it does not matter as long as you keep a steady suplpy of charged batteries nearby. The buttons have a solid click to them, the analogs are 95% close to offical and the familiar square, triangle etc are in the correct places.
A tad expensive, but given this was a 'hope for the best' purchase, I am very pleased indeed.

It would have received 5 stars, but that cost is quite a bot more than some similar items and given it is quite basic in design by it's authenticity it drops one.

To recap, works perfectly, needs AAA batteries, not the cheapest.

5.0 out of 5 stars AT LAST, new material, and how!!!, 16 May 2003
This review is from: Cinemasonic (Audio CD)
After enjoying the delights of the "Fairy Light Nights" releases, and the stonking "Live At Union Chapel" disc, at last we can enjoy the first new AAE material as a band, in years. (Iceland as a side project with just Jules and Andy, does not 'officially' count, as such!).
There are some great renditions of classic songs here, but the standout tracks must be the new ones. The song writing is just as good as always.
First off, one to shake off the cobwebs, 'Let me go home'. Great guitar form Toni, Andy pounding a meaty Bass line, and Julianne showing the kids how it *can* be done!
3rd track in, 'Somebody said'. A great song, really showing off Juliannes voice for what it is.. Amazing! After a live version of 'Blue sonic Boy’, a Mice track and one of Juliannes previous solo projects, we get to 'Daisychains'. A beautiful song, very reminiscent of (dare I say it) early AAE. A gentle melody with poignant lyrics. Sublime! After a couple more tracks (one from the very much underrated "Ultraviolet" album,) we get to 'Ctrl - alt - del'. A track that was underplayed on the recent live tour. Last new track here is 'Sodium'. Atmospheric, dark, and brooding.. All with a slight huskiness almost to the delivery from Julianne.
Last track is a stonking cover of David Bowies' 'Life on mars', delivered perfectly. Buy this, or even better, get the DVD as well. (great to listen to, but even better to watch, and with extra tracks!)

4.0 out of 5 stars A wintery escape from the norm' with AAE, 15 May 2003
This review is from: Iceland (Audio CD)
This is by no means 'Scarlet' or 'Marthas' harbour', and to be fair that is quite a good thing! This is an atmospheric disc meant to encapsulate the good things about winter. Not all the material is instantly accessible, and there is the odd track that die-hard AAE fans will not like (perhaps), but this is *meant* to sound different. It took me few attempts to get 'into' this disc, and the effort was well worth it. Listen with candlelight, and a glass of wine. Temporarily forget the old albums, this is meant to be enjoyed for its' own merits.
