3.0 out of 5 stars The cable works fine, but..., April 3, 2010
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
The thing that many people don't realize about the Wii "HD" cables is that they are not actually HD. It's not a problem with the cable, it's a constraint of the Wii itself. Using a component video cable such as this one will change the display mode output from the Wii from 480i to 480p. This means that the picture is rendered slightly better on the screen, but is not actually in a better resolution. The difference between the standard Wii cable and a component cable is noticeable, especially on larger HDTVs, but may not be the visual boost you hope for.

4.0 out of 5 stars High Quality, but uses too much gas, September 3, 2009
I would like to start off by saying that I was impressed with the build quality of this gun. It is very sturdy, and the paint stays on better than most other guns, which can be a realistic problem when using any gun regularly.

The gun uses a very large amount of gas for each round. Problems others reported about the magazine not holding enough gas to discharge all of the rounds are probably due to the fact that they did not fill the magazine all the way. However, even when done correctly, You will be able to get through about 1 magazine, as opposed to an average of 2 from most other pistols I have used.

The gun is not really that accurate. This probably has to do with the length of the barrel, because other gas guns (especially the M190) can fire accurately at 40-50 feet. While the dots on the iron-sights are neat, it will do absolutely no good to use them to aim, unless you are shooting at a target that is 3 feet away.

The gun does have an adjustable hop-up system, which works, but does not aid in its general inaccuracy.

Overall, this gun looks very nice, feels very nice, but may not be the best choice in a skirmish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for reference, July 12, 2009
This review is from: Programming PHP (Paperback)
As someone with a fair amount of programming experience already, I did not find this book too hard to read. It does, however, require some knowledge about programming in general. Those of you with experience in C languages will find that it doesn't waste any time explaining what a function is, but people who are new to programming might want to start with something a bit simpler. The most useful part of the book for me is the list of all the built-in functions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs more information about keys, July 12, 2009
This review is from: Learning MySQL (Paperback)
The book is pretty good, and offers lots of examples. MySQL is not very simple, and took me a lot of studying to learn. I found that I had to use several books at once to get the hang of things. One thing that this book does not cover very well are table keys (primary, foreign, etc).

5.0 out of 5 stars Good deal, July 12, 2009
My first can of airsoft gas was not very great, and cost more than the two of these. The cans are highly pressurized, so you will get a lot of shots ot of each one. The price is hard to beat, also.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy accessory, July 12, 2009
These are a great addition to almost any airsoft shotgun. I only gave them 4 stars because oone of my shells does not load properly (it jams a lot). The other 5 are fine.

Make sure that you have a speedloader for these - You will need it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, June 23, 2009
The gun works great. It's made mostly of ABS plastic, but is still of pretty solid design. The only major concern with the gun are the ironsights. They are attached to the barrel poorly, and mine fell of after a few hours of use. I was able to fasten them down with some epoxy, but they shouldn't come off in the first place.
