4.0 out of 5 stars Decent bang for your buck!, June 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I just got this unit in today and after I downloaded "Start Menu 8" a free download from cnet.com that adds a start button to the Win8 desktop I was up and running. No problems so far but then again I knew exactly what I was buying . . . a budget "gaming" rig. I put that in parenthesis because let's be honest, a true gaming rig does not come with a 350W PSU or a $30.00 gfx card. So knowing that I had on hand some decent replacement parts that I did not hesitate to install upon arrival(EVGA SUPERNOVA NEX750B PSU and an EVGA GEFORCE GTX 560 SE gfx card). With these installed I am good to go, every game(Mainly playing Guildwars 2) and piece of software I have thrown at this beast it has handled with ease. No need to spend thousands on a high end gaming rig to get a decent rig. So far I can highly recommend this unit and as an added plus the case is pretty cool looking with a side lit up fan and a front panel lit up fan. It is also black and orange(I thought it looked like yellow in the picture, orange is much better) Overall I am highly satisfied!

4.0 out of 5 stars So very Helpful, December 31, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this to go with the two whistles I received for Christmas this year. What a blessing. It has helped refresh my memory concerning note reading and helped immensely with using the whistle on tunes I love(That's an Irish Lullaby, Amazing Grace, The Parting Glass, etc . . .) Great purchase and well worth the money. The CD is helpful and the book includes 10 lessons covering everything from how to place your fingers to playing the complete scale and with plenty of music included to help you along. Highly recommend this for anyone who wants to learn how to play!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect beginning Whistle, December 31, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Aloha from Kaua'i!
I just received this whistle and one other for Christmas this year and am in musical heaven! I have always wanted one of these instruments. This one with it's plastic Fipple tends to be fairly loud and easy to play making it ideal as a first tin whistle(You don't have to blow quite as hard as with a wooden fipple). I do fell that this lacks the warmth that the wooden fipple whistle has, but that is more of a personal choice. I do highly recommend this one for anyone interested in playing the Tin Whistle! It is very hard to put down! :) Mahalo nui loa Clarke!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely tone, December 31, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Ok to be honest I just got this and one other whistle for Christmas this year and they are my very first. That alone is why I gave it only 4 stars. Meaning, due to my lack of expertise I felt I was not qualified to give it an all-out 5 stars. That being said, I love the warmth of the tone I get from this whistle with it's wooden Fipple(I think I got that right) over the plastic fipple on my other whistle. You do have to blow a little harder to hit the higher notes but to me at least it seams to have more of a personality given by I believe the use of wood. Highly recommend this for a beginner, like myself. I am amazed at how quick the note reading is coming back after years of playing guitar and ukulele chorded music. This will be a welcome addition to my music and a easily portable travel companion!

4.0 out of 5 stars Instant Favorite!, December 2, 2012
This review is from: Christmas on the Border (Audio CD)
As a musician I really appreciate different genre's takes on Christmas classics. This Cd with it's Texas Blues/New Orleans/Mexican/Rock sound is a great Cd and a must have for any music fan's collection. I love all of the tracks, speaking of which the listed track here on Amazon are incorrect. The copy I have has 10 Tracks and are in the order listed below(Found this out while ripping the tracks to my computer for use on my MP3 player):

1 - Come All Ye Faithful
2 - Children Go Where I send Thee
3 - Joy To The World
4 - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
5 - Go Tell It On The Mountain
6 - The Virgin Mary Had a Baby Boy
7 - Up On The Housetop
8 - O Holy Night
9 - I Wonder as I Wander
10 - What Child Is This

Track 2 is my favorite of the tracks but all are very good.
I hope this helps you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a DVD of an old favorite!, February 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Ok so these both are not the best Kung Fu movies ever created. That said Revenge of the Lady Warrior (Alias "Against The Drunken Cat Paws, I think that title is a better/more entertaining one)is one of my all-time favorites. Partly because of Nora Kao Loa's acting and partly because it is a funny movie. Drunken women fighting, kid fighting a midget, all of that and a typical revenge plot that is very easy to watch. I used to have this title under the Drunken Cat Paws Title on VHS and wish I had never gotten rid of it. Brings back a lot of memories of watching this and other Kung Fu "Classics" with my kids on Saturdays (USA Kung Fu Theater).
The second movie is not as good as the first, acting is not as good, action is average, and the picture quality is not as good(Seems a little out of focus). Both movies look like they were VHS originals copied into digital format.
Truthfully I only bought this for the first movie and based on that alone I would recommend this DVD. Movies like this should be what they should be thinking of remaking instead of TV shows made into movies (Dukes of Hazard, Beverly Hillbillys, etc, etc).

Loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Message!, February 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Aloha Kakou!
I bought this for my new Jeep's bumper. I love the message it has and wanted to promote my faith in Christ and God almighty. Shipped without a hitch. My only negative comment, and the reason I only gave it 4 stars is because it is not a traditional bumper sticker. Each individual letter is a sticker. This made installing it on my rear bumper a pain and I have little faith it will stay on for very long(the L in love is already coming off). Probably would be better suited for a window installation and my Jeep being a soft top, there's no room for that type of sticker.

4.0 out of 5 stars Avast me Hearties!, December 31, 2005
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Grab your cutlass and prime the cannons it's family game night!

My wife bought this for me as a joke (LOL) to put in my stocking for Christmas. After opening it and reading the game instructions it sounded like fun. So my 13 yr old son and I sat down to play. It is a lot of fun. Mostly a strategy game, where he/she with the most booty wins.

This tin is a steal. You get 4 packs, which sell at the local toy store for about $4.99 each. You do the math.

If you like pirates (and who doesn't), and you want to spend time with your child away from video games (I do like them too) . . . GET THIS TIN. Half the fun is putting them together, then it's time to hoist the mainsail and off to treasure island or some cannon fire against those other scurvies!

I do not recommend this game for younger children beacuse of the small pieces and the ships are kind of fragile (Not too though).

Take it from an old salt, swab those decks, weigh your anchor, hoist your sails and make way for some fun!

Aaaaaarrrggghh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gamera's back and Kickin' Butt!, September 13, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It had been a really long time since I had seen a Gamera movie. Couldn't even tell you what the title of the last one I saw was.

This collection is awesome. Much better than the older versions. Of course technology has advanced, but I thought the story lines were pretty good and the newer Gamera is much more "viscous" looking.

All-in-all a great buy. What a way for me to introduce Gamera to my children! Loved it, would recommend it to anyone.

Go turtle power!
