5.0 out of 5 stars A modern classic., November 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Frozen [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
An absolutely delightful animated film that pretty much anyone should be able to enjoy, be they boys or girls, women or men. There's not much to say about this movie that hasn't already been said-- it's got lovable characters, dazzling visuals, and incredibly catchy musical numbers. It makes for a great holiday movie, but I am certainly not going to do myself the disservice of waiting until Christmas to watch it again, because it's a great film at any time of year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do not use a 64GB card with a Samsung Galaxy S4., November 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this to use in my Samsung Galaxy S4. At first things looked good, but soon I found that the phone would frequently act as if there was no card installed, and it even erased the data on the card a few times. I ended up putting a 32GB card in my S4, and now I keep the 64GB card in my Galaxy Note 10.1 where it seems to not have any problems. I feel a little bad taking a star off since it's technically the phone's fault and not the card, but it wasn't able to do what I bought it for, and since both the card and phone are made by Samsung there should not be compatibility problems like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for refurbishing a Sega Dreamcast, November 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used these to replace my Dreamcast's CMOS battery, and since it was a 5 pack I ended up fixing another Dreamcast that I found too. If you are interested in these for that purpose, they do exactly what I would want. They are quite easy to install, assuming you are able to desolder the old battery holder without too much trouble. The feet line up perfectly with the holes on the Dreamcast's PCB, so installation was very straightforward.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an American Godzilla movie done right., November 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been a huge Godzilla fan since I was just a kid. I made it one of my life's ambitions to see every one of the movies, and I watched Godzilla vs. Megalon so many times that the tape wore out and I had to get a new one. When the 1998 re-imagining from Roland Emmerich came out, my kid-self was quite entertained with it initially as an action film, but as the years rolled on I quickly came to realize that it was not a real Godzilla movie, and it did not stand the test of time at all.

Fortunately, the new reboot of Godzilla from Gareth Edwards is a proper Godzilla through and through. This is the return of the true Godzilla, who I spent a good sized chunk of my childhood obsessing over. There's been some criticism that this film supposedly did not have enough Godzilla in it, but my counterargument is that the film is paced just like the classic Toho films. In the old films, Godzilla usually showed up about half-way through, and most of the films would be shown from the perspective of human characters-- in a 90 minute Godzilla film, you'd typically only have a few minutes of Godzilla himself, but that is part of what made his character seem so much larger than life.

I gotta say, seeing Godzilla in all his glory again for that first moment, and hearing the booming, updated version of his iconic roar brought a tear to my eye. Godzilla was one of my childhood heroes, and with the new visual effects making him look more real than ever, the experience was almost like seeing Superman or even Jesus in a movie for the first time. If for nothing else, I have to give this movie 5 stars for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it's supposed to!, November 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this to use my Playstation DexDrive with Windows 7. When I ran Dexter in XP compatibility mode, it worked perfectly! Just be sure to assign the serial adapter to one of the COM ports from 1 to 4 in Device Manager, so that Dexter can find it. A must have if you enjoy the DexDrive!

2.0 out of 5 stars Apparently a few years ago they were quite well recommended in the Dreamcast community, November 11, 2014
Bought some of these for making Sega Dreamcast game backups. Apparently a few years ago they were quite well recommended in the Dreamcast community, but lately their quality has taken a massive punch. I bought from DealExtreme and the batch I received was bad-- none of the ones I tried burning worked on either of my Dreamcasts, no matter what configuration and hardware I used.

I can't speak as a CD music burning enthusiast which is why I give it two stars instead of one, but if you are looking to burn Dreamcast games this is not the solution. I will be returning these to DX if I can. This was an expensive experiment that turned out very disappointing. I will have to either find a higher quality brand of 99 minute CD-Rs (which seems iffy, since this is a very niche product), or I will have to settle for 90 minute CD-Rs and use the 800MB version of Shenmue 2 in English.

I was worried about scratching up my expensive new Intuos 5, and this cover does a good job keeping it protected. I have not noticed any interference with performance, and it was easy enough to install. A must-have for Wacom users.

These are well constructed and they are exactly what I needed to open up my old Nintendo systems and cartridges. If you are looking to do Nintendo repairs, I suggest picking these up (as well as a tri-wing screwdriver).

5.0 out of 5 stars A good pack of batteries for the price, October 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A good pack of batteries for the price. I bought these to replace the CMOS battery in my Sega Saturn and for some Dreamcast VMUs that I had. If that's what you're looking to do, these are the batteries you need.
