4.0 out of 5 stars Good add on, May 25, 2013

Delivers what an FsX addon should, better than standard realism and graphics. My system required the patch (available at the 'Just Flight' site) to work.

Entertaining, compelling story line and characters. Have read all of his novels multiple times, never fails to satisfy. If you've read him, you probably know what I mean.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed, March 8, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Memory was somewhat unstable from the start, much worse as of late.Memtest 86 showed varying numbers of errors in test 3, moving inversion 1s & 0s. Removed one 8GB stick to get machine to run without constant seizures/reboots. Anxiously awaiting the arrival of memory from a different manufacturer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful set, September 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Admittedly, I've only owned this set for a couple of weeks, but to this point, it's been a great experience. Set up was easy, and although I didn't need them, it was nice to see they had QR code for your smart phone to read which opened videos available on line to aid in setup and operation. I had an ethernet cable connection to a router, so an internet connection was established in seconds. Updates took a few minutes, and then it was simply a matter of re-establishing Netflix, and of course, fiddling with color and sound settings to preferences. To that end, here are a settings that I have found very good on this set:

- Picture mode - standard
- Backlight - 10
- Contrast - 88
- Brightness - 45
- Sharpness - 91
- Color - 34
- Tint - G51/R49
ADVANCED:
- Dynamic contrast - low
- Black tone - dark
- Flesh tone - +2
- RGB only mode - off
- Color space - auto
- 10pt white balance - off
- Gamma - -1
- Expert pattern - off
- xvYCC - off
PICTURE OPTIONS:
- Color tone - cool
- Digital noise filter - auto
- HDMI black level - normal
- Film mode - auto 2
- Auto motion plus - smooth
- LED motion plus - off
- 10pt white balance - on

Did not change other specs. Set is hooked up to Time Warner Cable. Remember to set color specs for each function (Streaming movies, Blu-ray, etc.), as the default settings remain until changed in each. Very nice app suite, beautiful picture, no complaints. Just hoping it will outlast my last two HDTVs, which lasted exactly three years each.(Yes, I finally caved and bought the insurance!)

Just getting started, but setup was a breeze. Hoping not to need it, but also thankful for the peace of mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise, January 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I didn't really expect a great deal from a thirty dollar headset, but as soon as I plugged into my ipod, I was pleasantly surprised. The Sony MDR-XB is light, comfortable, and produces a rich, quality sound. Impressive.

Great collection, nicely packaged with a coffee table book. Should have included 'Dracula, Dead And Loving It', but a great collection nevertheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, November 10, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I will preface my remark by saying that I've only had this set a short time as of this writing, so the reader can qualify accordingly. Coming off a plasma 42" from a different manufacturer that died unceremoniously after 3 years, the Bravia 46" is a wonderful blend of design, features, and functionality (and hopefully, reliability!). I especially liked the side panel connectivity ports, and the fact that there are ample HDMI imputs. Picture issues of earlier LCDs, such as blue tinted blacks, off center viewing clarity, appear to have been successfully addressed, and the picture is absolutely beautiful....stunning when watching a 'Blu-ray' DVD. Picture was easily fine tuned to preference, as are all other settings. One weak point, noted by others as well, is the sound quality, which is adequate, but lacks horsepower. I would imagine the manufacturers assume most people so concerned will use the set in conjunction with a stand alone sound system, but I feel the set's sound should be beefier. I am overall very impressed thusfar, and 'Amazon' was great to deal with, as usual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, November 1, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was replacing a damaged IM7, and figured to give this fairly highly rated newer Altec unit a try. The smaller size and built in rechargeable battery make it easy to take around, although lack of a secure ipod cradle preclude listening to the ipod on the go. The FM radio can be handy, and was not featured on the IM7. It's a handsome unit, perfect for an office desk, and the balanced quality sound belies it's size. I do miss the higher horsepower sound of IM7, in part fueled by the sub-woofer built into it, as well as the adjustability for bass and treble levels, not available on this unit. (The ipod's generic settings menu don't cut it for me.) All in all, a nice unit, especially for the price.
