5.0 out of 5 stars Made my 2011 Mac Mini fly!, 15 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I installed this into my 2011 Mac Mini and the results were amazing.

Various upgrades to the OS and software installations over the years had made my Mac slower and slower (especially booting from cold). I was sceptical that simply cloning the drive onto an SSD and installing it would make a big difference - but I was wrong.

Now my Mac flies along, apps open in a couple of seconds and booting is around 5 times faster. It feels like a brand new machine, great upgrade - highly recommend.

If you're annoyed by a slow, unresponsive old Mac, this is the upgrade for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars A sub-standard conclusion to an otherwise perfect run, 4 July 2011
Straczynski's run on Thor has been some of the best material coming out of Marvel in recent years, but this final volume was a bit of a disappointment. The main problem is its lack of conclusion. The whole volume is essentially setting up subsequent plots for either the ongoing Thor series or the company-wide crossover event 'Seige'. It's still well written, and the art by Marko Djurdjevic is absolutely gorgeous, but this volume is nothing more than a 'joiner' - connecting Straczynski's run to the next volume by Kieron Gillen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worked perfectly, 12 May 2011
Easy to apply, just make sure you clean the screen very, very thoroughly first! You don't want even one speck of dust on there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't fault it, very satisfied, 9 Mar. 2006
After taking into account some more negative reviews here and elsewhere online, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase this recorder. I'm very glad I did, and certainly two of the main points of complaint that others had raised were non existent for me. These points are:
1) The fan. yes it has a small cooling fan built into the back of the unit. Some say it is too noisy. It is at the back, is very quiet (a low hum), only runs when the machine is turned on (not on stand-by), and can't even be heard over the noise of the TV anyway!
2) Picture/Recording quality using RGB Scart connection. It seems some earlier versions of this model had dodgy scart connections that led to a poor signal. Mine doesn't and records/plays in pristine clarity when recording using HQ or SP record modes. I have read that Sony eliminated this problem some months ago, so ignore this point in other reviews, as it no longer applies.
This is a great entry level DVD recorder and is ideal for those wanting to replace a knackered, old VCR (as I did). I found the menus easy to understand and there really is a whole host of advanced features including editing your DVD after use, timer, a DV/Firewire port for video cameras and more. Regardless of all this advanced stuff though, you can still simply whack in a DVD and press the record button if your in a hurry – a nice bit of user friendly functionality that has carried over from VCRs!

4.0 out of 5 stars The begining of Peter Davids classic run, 22 Mar. 2005
When most people think of the Hulk they think green. Well think again, this is Peter Davids Grey Hulk - an intelligent, devious, grey goliath. The traditional green Savage Hulk represents one facet of Bruce Banners mind, whilst this grey incarnation represents another. This givers David the opportunity to really explore how and why the various Hulks represent suppressed parts of Banners psyche. Coupled with this, we have some exciting action, made all the more appealing by the artwork of a young Todd McFarlane of Spider-man and Spawn fame. Some of Todds very early work in this volume is a bit weak, partly due to some bad inking. However, once we get about halfway through, he seems to have ironed out his creases and gives us the quintessential depiction of the Grey Hulk.
This first TPB collects issues 331-339. Make sure you read Peter Davids introduction at the beginning of the book, as he explains some background continuity that is required before you start reading the actual story. If you enjoyed this volume and want more, there is an out of print TPB called Hulk: Ground Zero which continues on from issue 340 with Grey Hulks legendary encounter with Wolverine.
