Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The original boxwave was the best in class, but this has overtaken it by leaps and bounds. The smoothness of this stylus is unparalleled, don't hesitate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, quiet, easy to use drive., 5 Feb. 2010
Really impressed so far, no problems at all. The fact it runs of the USB makes it very easy to carry around and transfer files around the house, and the 500GB storage is ample for most users. I am currently using this with TimeMachine on the Mac and have no problems what so ever. Very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant upgrade for your Mac, 25 Feb. 2009
This review is from: iLife '09 Family Pack (CD-ROM)
This is one the best upgrades Apple has released in a long time. Contrary to the other review that is on here. Many of his problems are simple misunderstandings of the program which could have easily been fixed by looking at Apple Help in the top bar.

Anyway, iPhoto now sports 'faces' a way to organise photos by face; places- using the geo tags from photos. And some pretty jaw dropping slideshows that can start playing within one click. iMovie now puts back all the advaced features that were missing from 08, and iWeb and Garageband also have suitable upgrades.

It really is worth getting iLife 09, just for the Faces in iPhoto. It works pretty well out of the box, and really is great fun to use.

If you have iLife 08, make no mistake, this is a fantastic upgrade. If you don't trust me, why not Google in, 'iLife 09 review' and see what you get. They're all a far cry from the other review on here.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid hard drive at an attractive price., 3 Sept. 2008
A very good hard drive that has been backing up to computers (a Macbook and an iMac) for at least 6 months now with no problems at all. The hard drive does make a bit of noise- but being my first hard drive I could not tell you if it was loud compared to the competition.

The hard drive works seamlessly with Time Machine (Apple's backup solution for macs). Another point to note is that I move this hard drive quite a bit across the room, so it has had a couple of 'knocks', but fortunately nothing seems to be affected. But since I do move it, I find the fact that it doesn't power itself purely through the USB annoying as I have to unplug it every time.

In terms of data transfer, it is quick and fast, but since it powers off after 10 mins of inactivity, you have to wait for the disk to rev back up again to access any data after that time- not a huge problem but very slightly annoting.

Still, a very good choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good starter lens, 28 Aug. 2008
First thing first, this is a decent lens. It offers a much nicer focal range than other kit lenses and it does pretty well in terms of sharpness. It's barrel action is smooth but it' focus ring does rotate, making it a pain to use a polariser.

It does well as a budget lens, but there are better- for a higher price.

If you're a beginner, just starting out with an Alpha 200 or 300/50, then this lens will keep you satisfied for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality polariser, 13 Aug. 2008
A really good quality filter. A polariser is on piece of photographic equipment you can't really be cheap on. I also belive it is the only type of filter you will need.

It has a very high quality feel and weight to it, and attaches itself to the lens quickly and easily. I am using a Sony Alpha 200 with the kit lens to test it.

It performs very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant DSLR, 4 Aug. 2008
A fantastic DSLR with plenty of features and capability for the incredible price. Arrived quickly thanks to amazons brilliant service, and after fully charging the battery the camera was away.

One thing to note is that it is larger than it's Nikon and Canon competitors, but the camera is very comfortable to hold and weight is not really an issue with the kit lens provided.

That's one of it's negatives though. The kit lens- though sporting a larger zoom range than it's competitor's, it doesn't do the lovely 10 MP sensor any justice. That said, I am being really pernickety.

Overall it is a lovely camera, looks good and is available at such an amazing price on amazon. Go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wii, 22 Nov. 2006
Incredible. I thought I could wait till after work to get the Wii. I never would have thought so many people wanted to buy it off amazon after seeing all the different places you could buy it in. But, when I logged on to pre-order it, they were gone. Bad news for me, but great for Nintendo. They are completley killing the PS3!!
