I bought this drive around 6 months ago.
Since then, the device has come in handy on hundreds of occasions. From re-installing my operating system to transferring files from computer to computer, everyone needs an external hard drive. When I saw this Seagate 500GB one on Amazon for just £34.99, I simply could not help but purchase it (timing was fortunate, as this was just before the price of all hard drives skyrocketed).
Installation is easy, it is quite literally plug and play and is powered by a single USB to mini USB cable. It could not be simpler. It is also very durable, as there are no noticeable blemishes or marks, and it works perfectly, despite being dropped from medium height on numerous occasions.
Transfer speeds are average, somewhere around 20-30mbps however it can fluctuate quite a bit. All in all a worthy purchase for sure. Buy this drive if you can find it for under £50 and are in the market for an external hard drive.
I bought this headset a few years ago, and have not once regretted my purchase.
The voice quality on this headset is simply amazing. At just under £15, you would expect feedback, and the sound to be perhaps tinny on the person you are talking to's end. But no, not with these bad boys. The quality could not be clearer, I even use this in place of my stand a lone desktop microphone because the quality is so good.
As for audio quality, it would be as you'd expect. Not too good, but not too bad either. Not ideal for music enthusiasts by a long shot, but it does the job for skype calls and things of that nature. As for comfort, it is relatively comfortable, however after long periods of times it does tend to be a little tight on the ears. Other than that minor fault, you cannot go wrong with this headset. A must buy.
I bought this graphics card for my son for christmas.
So far, we have both been very pleased with the performance. As with any graphics card, installation is easy, it only requires you to plug it in and plug in the fan molex. Once it's physically fitted, install the drivers from the CD and off you go.
So far, it has proven to be able to run World of Warcraft on Ultra graphics 80+ FPS, several Call of Duty games, max graphics, 60+ fps, and pretty much any other game we have thrown at it. Very pleased with the performance to price ratio, and the cooling is very good (rarely exceeds 45-50C).
Overall, it is a very good graphics card for the price and will run pretty much anything you throw at it. Extremely affordable in comparison to some of the higher end cards such as the GTX 590 and ATI equivalent.
I bought the Razer Naga in December 2010, about a year and 4 months ago from now. Since then, my MMORPG gaming experience has never been the same.
With a combined total of 17 mouse buttons and 5600 dpi, this mouse comes in handy in PvP and PvE alike, allowing you to easily access all your vital spells, abilities and macros. I cannot count how many times this mouse has saved me by my reflexes kicking in and spamming my thumb on the 9 button for 'Lay on Hands' to heal me to full health. It truly has enhanced my gaming experience, and makes present and future experiences all the merrier as you plow your way through the player versus player battlegrounds, equipped with the Razer Naga to give you an advantage over your enemies.
Not to mention how comfortable the mouse in. It sits nicely in my slightly above average sized hands, and provides a side rest for your 4th finger, allowing your hand to sit naturally over its arched back. Very well thought out design.
Overall, this mouse is a must buy for any big MMORPG fan like myself, as it truly will give you an edge over opposition.
I bought this exact item 2 months ago, as I had used a friends 3rd generation ipod touch, and discovered just how amazing these things are.
Tens of thousands of apps, storage space for thousands of songs, wifi, an amazing touch screen and 2 cameras. What more could you want from such a portable device. Ever since I bought my iPod Touch 4th Generation 32GB, I have always wondered how I lived without it. It is perfect for checking emails, playing games, listening to music, watching videos (youtube!) and anything else you can imagine doing. It truly is an all in one device for any tech-fanatic, I honestly cannot see how you can regret this purchase.
It carries all of the features as an iPhone does, with the exception of 3G internet and phone capabilities (calling/texting). You save yourself a good few hundred of pounds for losing those 2 features, money you can spend on a seperate phone. 2 gadgets for the price of 1 :)
I was in the market for a portable camera that could be easy to use without sacrificing performance and quality. I think I hit the spot with the Zi8.
It takes relatively high quality photos, and the 1080p video quality is outstanding. I picked this up second hand from Ebay for around 50 quid, and have never regretted the purchase. The battery life is pretty amazing, it couldn't be easier to use and the built in USB connector is very handy as it means you do not have to keep a cable around to upload photos to your computer or laptop.
My only complaint is the flash (or lack thereof). There does not seem to be a flash feature, rendering this camera useless in the dark. Very annoying whilst on holiday and trying to take pictures of the night life, but for the price and output quality of the photos and videos, you can't really complain.
A worthy purchase.
I paid £368 for this laptop from Ebuyer in December 2010.
Since then, I have been very pleased with the product. It has just enough hard drive space and RAM to do the trick, and the dedicated ATI Mobility 4200 series graphics card runs thing such as World of Warcraft at 30fps nicely. It is also powerful enough to run games such as Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne and League of Legends. The only downside is the keyboard. While the keys do feel nice to press, there is an extra column of keys down the left hand side of the keyboard. They are used for shortcuts to things such as My Computer and Calculator. These have only proved annoying as you constantly mis-press them when trying to push shift, caps lock and tab. I have even resorted to physically removing the keys to prevent typos, as they are very rarely of any practical use. Overall, worth the buy.
