Wonderfully delicious. If you like James Taylor, you'll love this album. Original, easy to listen to, romantic, and just plain fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brief Review: Nintendo Scores Big Again, June 16, 2006
Usually when a company produces a "new and improved" version of a product, there's no need to invest excitement, but for those of you who are already big fans of the Nintendo DS, the DS Lite is a brilliant handheld gaming device. I highly recommend that you upgrade to the DS Lite. For those of you who are considering the DS for the first time, I hope the following summary is of help to you in your decision. Here is a brief rundown of my pros and cons:

Pros:

1. Highly attractive look.
2. Smaller and more streamlined design gives more control while gaming. The old DS is a bit bulky.
3. Power button is no longer a button. It is now conveniently a switch on the side.
4. Stylus slot is now on the side instead of on the top. Much more convenient!
5. Microphone is now between the two screens instead of at the bottom. Very smart improvement.
6. Four levels of brightness. This is probably the most needed improvement. With the old DS, playing in well-lit areas (i.e., outside) was nearly impossible. The DS Lite's screen provides as much or as little brightness as necessary depending on your particular situation. This improvement was the deciding factor for me in choosing to upgrade from my first-generation DS.
7. The new higher-quality DS screen helps the graphics to look sharper and crisper.

Cons:

1. Brightness levels can only be changed from the configuration screen. If you're in the middle of a game, there is no external brightness adjustment.
2. The exterior of the new DS is gorgeous, but the resin-like coating means easy smudging of the external case. This will be slightly annoying for those of you who are prone to sweaty palms.
3. Still no support for old Gameboy games. There is still, of course, Gameboy Advance and Gameboy Advance SP support just as there was with the first-generation DS.

The DS Lite really is a brilliant device. Nintendo could hardly have done a better job. If you are looking for a great way to kill time and/or experience great handheld gaming, I highly recommend the DS. With so many hundreds of great titles available (when including Gameboy Advance games), a reasonable price, and such a solidly designed gaming device, you will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Distorted?, January 6, 2006
This is mainly a comment on previous remarks on the book. I think it is helpful to know that Dr. Chancellor poured over six years of his life in unprecedented close contact with followers of the Children of God from all over the world. When he was done with his research, the manuscript was reviewed by Peter Amsterdam himself, second in leadership of the movement. Amsterdam found only two factual errors, which were corrected, despite the clear portrayal of the movement's self-admitted embarassing practices.

From Dr. Chancellor's own mouth, he does not in anyway support their practices. By stating that they have made improvements simply means just that. It is not the same as supporting them.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2-year owner, August 9, 2005
I've had these speakers for two years now, and I can say that without a doubt, these are the best computer speakers (for the money), that I have ever bought. They still sound just as awesome as the day I bought them. This is amazing considering how many times I have dropped them and shipped them around the country!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting Start for a Fantatastic Series, May 16, 2005
As I was searching for a new game to add to my collection, I inadvertently came across Transformers for the PS2. Having grown up watching the Transformers, I was immediately interested in the game. After I read the reviews and searched for the best price, I decided to buy the game which I purchased for $19.82 at Walmart.

Eagerly, I brought the game home and booted up my PS2. The cool Atari logo which "transformed" into the Transformers logo made my anticipation skyrocket. Once the introductory game video came on, I was thoroughly impressed. The music was excellent, using many of the different themes from Transformers in various contemporary styles. The music for the different levels is also very appropriate for each situation. The menu screen is superbly done, with a slick rotating "throne room" for the three autobots used in the game. On this menu the user can select which minicons he wants to use. There are also a plethora of other options as well. By the way, the menu and load times for this game are outstanding.

Honestly, I'm not sure why the game didn't get higher reviews from major video game reviewers. I'm no video game expert, but this came is simply cool. The graphics are fantastic. The scenery is at times breathtaking, especially when you get the Slipstream minicon and can soar through majestic hills and valleys. The textures, shadows, lighting, and other attention to details are top notch. Even the character's shadow from the sun is correct from whatever angle you are facing! Oh, and if you want to see some very cool CGI clips of the Transformers, this game has them! Obviously the team at Melbourne put a lot of work into this game.

If you want a game that has lots of action, requires strategy, has many different weapon add-ons, has beautiful graphics, and a vast assortment of enemies to fight, then Transformers is the game for you. Especially if you love the Transformers, you should get this game. I played this game for a week straight and could not get enough of it. I was very disappointed when I beat the game!

Pros:

- Fast load time

- Excellent music (despite IGN's opinion)

- Cool screensaver (when level is loading)

- Wonderful graphics

- Plethora of minicons (very fun to try each one)

- Exciting explosions (watch those robot parts fly!)

- Precise zoom cam mode (gotta try the rangefinder and rifle)

- Fun extras (everything from old TV spots to extra music)

- Autosave feature is a timesaver! Many save points also.

- Bosses (especially Tidal Wave and Megatron!)

- Slip Stream (glider) Minicon (this greatly enhances game coolness!]

Cons:

- No tutorial or trainer except during the game.

- Limited minicon carrying capacity. Can Optimus Prime really only carry four minicons?

- Limited use of autobots. This game would have been much cooler if the autobots could have fought together as a team, at least in some of the levels.

- Limited movement. No duck or roll for autobots.

- No mulitiplayer. This, perhaps, is the biggest weakness of this game. Being able to play together with a friend or online would enhance the fun factor of this game ten-fold.

Presentation: As I already said, the menu layout and opening theme music are very sharp and appealing to the eyes and ears. The fast loading times are also a big plus.

Graphics: The graphics go from amazing to breath-taking. When you feel like you are actually walking through a great icy canyon in Alaska, you know that the programmers did something right!

Sound: I really disagree with IGN on this one. I thought the music was well thought out -- not exciting all the time, but then again, I don't think that's always appropriate.

Gameplay: The weakest of the categories. Limited movement. The camera angles seem confused at times when close to a wall or object. Definitely needs duck and roll!

Lasting Appeal: The game is short compared to other RPG/Shooters, but it's still a great game to keep and play from time to time. Hey, it's the Transformers! I can't wait for Transformers 2!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable!!, December 3, 2004
First of all, I ordered this system refurbished from Overstock.com. The price was $219.00 (unfortunately no longer available, although they do have a similar system called the TH-M45 as of December 3, 2004). I honestly cannot believe I got so much power, clarity, and in-depth features for such a low price. Amazon's price is higher than Overstock.com, so that is something to keep in mind.

The system is easy to set up and to use, and best of all, it sounds like you are in a movie theatre! I am watching U-571 right now, and my whole room is vibrating with bass from the powerful subwoofer included.

Pros:

1. Comes with everything you need for an easy setup. (speaker stands not included)

2. 5-disc DVD/CD/MP3 changer is very convenient.

3. Great remote control.

4. Excellent features.

5. Sounds just as good as $1000+ systems (I've heard higher priced systems (such as Bose) before, and the TH-M55 is just as good)

6. Stylish design

Cons:

1. No separate volume control for left and right front speakers. (all other speakers can be individually tuned).

2. Minor problems with DVD player (has reset once and frozen once, but doesn't seem to be a major problem).

If you find this system for a good price (retail is $550 at jvc.com), then don't even think about a Bose. The JVC-TH-M55 is just as good!

UPDATE

I've had this system for about two weeks now, and I think it would be helpful to update my previous review by adding that the DVD player continues to reset during playback and freeze occasionally. It doesn't do it more than twice per DVD, but it is sometimes frustrating. I did a little research and it seems that other people with this same DVD player have had the same problem, so it may be an engineering flaw by JVC.

I consider the problem to be tolerable, but perhaps it is helpful for consumers to know about this problem.
