  1.  Reasonable speed, but a great price.

    Posted: 

    I bought mine at 24.99 and I'm glad I did, it's crazy how low flash prices have gotten. A year ago it cost as much to buy a 16GB SD card.

    As the other reviewer has noted, this appears to be a Class 4, the one I received is like the picture and denotes Class 4 on its exterior.

    As always, it's good to test SD cards for fakes with a utility like h2testw, and the results prove that it is not fake and indeed a Class 4 card:

    Test finished without errors.
    You can now delete the test files *.h2w or verify them again.
    Writing speed: 4.46 MByte/s
    Reading speed: 9.53 MByte/s
    H2testw v1.4

  2.  A good buy

    The case fits well, feels sturdy, no real risk of it popping out accidentally. I'd say it offers moderate protection from drops. But substantial protection from the kind of abuse it might see in someone's bag, with other items. Really it's all you can hope for given the trend to large touch-screen phones, that are always going to be a bit more susceptible to breaks.

    The screen protector application process is probably one of the best I've experienced. I've only got one bubble. The application card really helps.

    A good price on Play.com, but still not sure if it's worth 15 pounds.

  3.  A Bargain

    Posted: 

    I only tested it really quickly, 15GB available space formatted as FAT32. I transferred a file using Linux, and I was getting around 14MB/sec write speed.

    You only get the card, no case or anything.

    It really is such a bargain, as Class 10 is worth it.

    Only thing letting it down is the blue colour, most of my gadgets are black :b

  4.  £17.99 Bargain

    I've only tested this product for a short while but already it's fairing a lot better than my equally priced Class 4 SD cards.

    And on top of that it has the added robustness features.

    I really wish I did buy two of these, but I was a little tight on money. It was a great bargain.

  5.  Great value, great sound at £18.

    I bought these to replace a pair of Sennheiser OMX clip-on earphones.

    Received them today and have been listening for a couple of hours. In short, I'm very impressed. If I was to buy a replacement pair of my clip-on earphones, they'd be the same price as these, but the PX200 is a better pair of headphones.

    I like the design. I think full-cups and pads are coming back into fashion a bit. They do feel a little flimsy because they're foldable and so light weight. In fact, they feel rather precious. There's a lot of metal in the construction so I bet they're stronger than my first initial tactile feel of them. They also come with a well designed, if slightly bulky, carry case, with in built cable management.

    With regards to the case, it's not hard to use at all. I'll definitely be using it in case the PX200s get crushed in my bag by some heavy books or something.

    Burning in the headphones also makes a big difference. Clearly, after only a couple of hours of use they're not going to be broken in yet. Just mediate the volume you listen to things at, keep it at a modest level for a week, slowly working up to the full volume. The bass is maturing already. Listening to The XX is quite heavenly.

    I bought these over the PX100s because I'd prefer a full-cup for the noise and sound isolation it provides. It is pretty good actually. Better than having a bud in your ear.

    So in conclusion, I'm very impressed already. They certainly sound and look like they cost me more than under twenty quid. I probably wouldn't have paid full price for them. But at around this price point, they're a terrific bargain.

    Headphones are always better than earphones for proper listening. These mini headphones beat even larger pairs that I've used in the past. More punchy, crisper.

     Excellent.

    Wow, good job Human Head studios. For firstly resurrecting a previously shelved project and for doing such a good job. There are so many innovative gameplay features here that makes this game more exciting than any title I've played in a long time.

    The pacing is good, the beginning starts very well and progression is quick and fun.

    It's a great feature not being able to die, resurrecting through the little spirit game, it really keeps the pace going.

    I run this on a Athlon64 3700+, 1GB RAM, 7900GT. Runs at 1280x1024 High settings, with v-sync. If I don't use vertical sync i get slight ripping of the textures when moving, but this is a general Doom 3 engine problem. I have to do the same on Doom 3 and Quake 4. Runs very well, slight slow down sometimes.

    If you've got an 8800 I'm sure you'll be able to have everything up with vertical sync and AA and anisotropic filtering.

    What a bargain as well!
