Very good integrated external HDD alternative.

Reviewed by on

I work in IT, first line user-support, and I am are trying to get my population to move over to SSD because of the speed and near-invulnerability to mechanical shocks (which will make my life soo much easier...). One of the hooks that I use is that you can then take the existing HDD in the machine, put it in an external enclosure, and voila, you have an external drive!

For this, I used to buy the Transcend StoreJet 25S3 (TS0GSJ25S3) enclosures. They are competitively priced, and reasonably readily available. However, I must say that the StoreJet 25S3 is really a little bland...: Just a thin metal rectangle, not much more. It works fine, and the thinner implementation can work better for some. But, since discovering the TS0GSJ25CK3, I will be buying this from now on...

It is thicker than the TS0GSJ25S3, and to my mind, "feels" nicer to handle than the cold, thin, alternative. Also, it has a rubber sleeve over the plastic that I love. In addition to this, along with the drive you get a plastic spacer that allows you to seat your 7.5mm drives nice and tight. Something that the TS0GSJ25S3 omits entirely. (I used to take the little manual that come with the TS0GSJ25S3 to do this...) And, to top it off, the TS0GSJ25CK3 includes a thin-tipped screwdriver in the box! So, with this product Transcend even goes so far as to admit that many interested in this product possibly does not have jewelers screwdrivers to use at will. A very nice touch.

All in all, I would strongly recommend this Transcend product to anyone who is looking to re-implement their old HDD / want to build an external HDD.

A lovely beginner's uke. My first ukulele was a concert-size and after several months of struggling with the chords, I went down a size and bought this baby. I love it. The smooth feel of the wood, the higher pitch and compact size makes this a dream for beginners with small hands and big ukulele dreams!

The Most Complete Base Game Yet

Reviewed by on

If you're looking to make your first Star Realms purchase, this is the one!
It contains everything you need for up to 4 players to enjoy a fantastic version of the game, all in a sturdy and portable box.

The new artwork is fresh and of high quality, with the actual prints and card stock remaining top-notch.
The gameplay itself has seen a slight change since the original base set, with cards generally being more potent for less cost, and an incentive for building your deck around a particular faction. Overall, this makes for a more interesting and fun experience.

Great value for money. If you're contemplating it, I highly recommend the purchase.

Excellent purchase when on special

Reviewed by on

Box is sturdy with handy dividers and ample card sleeves included.
I managed to sleeve the entire Frontiers base game and almost all of the original Star Realms base game.
Easily houses both Frontiers as well as the original base game, with a bit more room for other expansions.
The 3 bonus promotion cards are interesting, though a perhaps a bit too powerful.
The artwork/printing is of good quality.
No real complaints here, especially at a reduced price.

Nice compilation of album cuts and hits

Reviewed by on

If you love original classic Country Music, this one is definately for you. Conway Twitty was a one-of-a-kind singer whose ability to wrench emotion ouf of simple lyrics places him among the best Country legends of all-time. He was more than just a country crooner, his renditions were intensely soulful which accounts for his 40 Billboard number one hits during his career. This compilation contains original recordings which already makes it pure Country gold (I hate re-recordings). A few of Conway's lesser available hits such as his excellent version of Don Gibson's I can't stop loving you (a number one hit), I'm not through loving you yet (a number three hit) and The Image of me (a number 5 hit) showcase Conway at his commercial best. The true gems are the more difficult to find album cuts that touches your heart repeatedly. His versions of Life turned her that way, Blue eyes crying in the rain and Dim Lights, Thick Smoke and Loud Loud Music are beautiful. His own compositions such as Just like a stranger and Dim lonely places remind us of how well he understood the Country lyrical tradition. My personal favourites are his version of George Jones' Tender years and his wonderful duet with Sam Moore, Rainy night in Georgia. George's 1961 hit, Tender years, remains one of George's most beautiful Country recordings. Conway keeps true to George's style and his sometimes croaking and mostly tender and emotive voice compliments the heartbreaking lyrics beautifully. Have you ever stood in the dark at a window, somewhere in South Africa with a glass of red wine in your hand and watched the rain pouring down? It feels as if you are transported to better times when life seemed not to be so complicated. I have experienced it, and in the background Conway Twitty and Sam Moore's version of Brook Benton and Tony Joe White's Rainy night in Georgia was playing in the CD-player. I wasn't in Georgia but it didn't matter because as they sing, "Lord, I believe it's raining all over the world", everything felt absolutely perfect and peaceful. It almost felt as if they were there with me in person, old souls sharing a moment of bliss. Their two totally different voices come together for a very special soulful duet that I will always count among my favourite duets. There are a few very good Conway Twitty Country collections (the original MCA releases) and reissues available (the Poker two albums on one CD), some very good, others not as good (because of re-recordings and not great remastering), but this one is good. I wish they would release Conway's early and mid 1970's albums on CD. There are some excellent songs and great performances of Conway that need to be heard again. Conway's Rock 'n Roll recordings are well represented on CD, they are wonderful, check them out.

Punishing and turning from fun into a slog...

Reviewed by on

You need to avoid playing the game the way you'd play a Burnout game - or any racing game in general, for that matter - in order to win.

The rubber-banding is so severe that AI will overtake you at twice your speed while you're in first place and boosting. They'll even take lines at speeds that aren't possible for such lines or even just generally possible. I've crashed just after tight turns and seen AI come around the corner in lines specifically to avoid me, reacting with inhuman speed, even before they were able to see me.

I shouldn't want to avoid taking other cars down (which happens so easily, sometimes, that I've gotten double takedowns from AI hitting me and bouncing into other AI cars), I shouldn't want to avoid first place, but the wrecks of other drivers can create excessively punishing obstacles in winding and/or narrow areas and the rubber banding means you'll need the right time to overtake from the third class of cars onward (there are 6 classes). The other cars also set off faster than you and boost earlier.

The tracks are great most of the time, but it's hard to see that past randomly generated traffic spawning in just the right places to make winning impossible. Some turns just do not fit with the mechanics of the game at all, just death traps. You also can't move the camera, aside from switching to front bumper cam or looking back.

Here are things that would make things better: more traffic on straight sections, less traffic on turns, less lighting glare, improved contrast in traffic textures and lighting, tone the rubber-banding way down, and maybe fix the tight chicane in the tropical section that (if I remember correctly) leads into a tunnel and then out onto a suspended road.

I was really excited for this game and talked about it a lot, before it came out, because I loved the Burnout games so much that I was there at the end, when there weren't enough people for Cops and Robbers anymore. This game has everything I wanted and expected - what it does well, it does amazingly, but what's wrong takes too much enjoyment away from all of that. At the end of the third day of playing this, I just feel sad, I regret having been excited about it, because of its glaring flaws. I cannot fullyrecommend this game and it pains me to say that, because it could have been the best indie game I've ever played and it even has everything it needed for that. Buy it, if you want a punishing Burnout-esque (minus music) experience, but know what you're getting into.
