Terminator Genisys (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray) [2015]

As this is a product review NOT a film review (for that, go to IMDB!), I will only give a brief opinion of the movie itself. I have found that I have grown to love this movie more and more on each viewing. I still wish James Cameron had kept hold of the franchise, but this is a worthy addition to the series. This reboot was cleverly handled, given the endless problems that can occur when dealing with time-travel.

Anyway, back to the product. The packaging is basic, but adequate. You get two discs, one with the standard 2D movie + extras, the other with the 3D version. I don't have a 3D set-up, so can't comment on the quality in that instance. The extras are well worth watching, with some good interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

Picture quality is excellent, as one would expect from the format. At times, I thought the quality was too good for its own good. It made certain scenes, like the one with the helicopter chase, look a little too obviously CGI/green screen. But what the hell. It's a Terminator movie, not Shakespeare!

The sound sometimes lacked impact, but that may be down to my system. I am running quite an old set-up, so others with better systems may not experience this. I include it only for completeness.

Perfect for my requirements. I had an old imported USA DVD player that goes back way before the days of HDMI. Had difficulty getting my set-up to display colour via the SCART/S-Video sockets when playing Region 1 DVD's (NTSC output), so bought this to overcome the issue. It did the job brilliantly. No upscaling on the player, as it pre-dates HD, but gives the best quality image I can expect.

6 LED Cycling Bicycle Head Front Flash Light Warning Lamp Safety Waterproof (Red)

I suppose you could say, well what do you expect from a product where the postage cost is 5x the price of the item! At the time, it was 44p plus £2 postage.

This is basically a small lamp that has had two tiny holes drilled and tapped in to the body so that the plastic circular base can be screwed to it. This base is then forced in to what appears to be a standard bicycle-lamp mount. It would have been adequate, but for the fact that on mine, one of the screws had broken off in the hole and I had to cable-tie the lamp to the holder.

OK as a back-up, should your main lamp fail but that's about it.

Beautiful instrument. Enjoying every moment spent learning to play. I check the tuning regularly, and I rarely have to tweak it.

The coating has already started to peel off on these trays, and they haven't been used that many times. Will not waste my money on these again.

Mounted vertically on the side of my case. Super quiet and super powerful. It helped lower my GPU temps by 5 degrees during benchmarking. Will be replacing the two fans in the roof of my Haf X with these soon, and also have a 230mm one coming soon for mounting in the front of the case.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother., 26 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Erratic reliability. Worked ok for a few days, and then would not remain on. Would just light up as you pressed the button, and then go off when you released it. Constantly had to remove it from the outer casing to 'manipulate' the batteries, which would sometimes get it working again.

Eventually, all this removing proved to be too much for it, and the electronic end snapped off from the plastic light tube.

Total garbage.

*****Update: 29th June 2015. I was contacted by the seller who was very apologetic and processed a full refund for me. Top marks for customer service.*****

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as roomy as it may look, 26 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's certainly very bright, which is perfect for a cyclist, and the waterproof cover does a brilliant job.

The downside is that the back of the bag is arched inwards to provide the airflow needed to keep you cool. This means that there is a lot less room in the bag than you would expect, especially between the middle 70% and the front. This is especially a pain if you are carrying something quite long and bulky, as the arch infringes on even moderately wide items.

Great card. Very fast. The reader is only USB2, but don't let that put you off. It still exceeds the read/write speed of the card, and it looks and feels like a premium product.

Love this game. Very addictive. Can start playing with the intention of passing maybe 30 minutes to an hour, look at the clock, and many hours have passed!
