Rapture Of The Deep: Deluxe Edition by Deep Purple (CD, Jun-2006, 2 Discs, Eagle Rock (USA))
Love the old stuff and Rapture as a long term Purple fan
I'm a middle aged guy who has been a Purple fan since 1971. There are things I like and dislike about every album and incarnation of the band. The Machine Head era is always talked about as the high watermark and best lineu...p. I won't touch that notion but can say that the more mature Gillan, Paice, Glover, Morse and Airey still have what it takes to write and perform great material. So when you are bored of the early stuff after playing Burn for the 900th time give Rapture of the Deep a listen and enjoy.
I like the grunt of Wrong man and the whimsical spirituality of the title track. Back to Back is another track that stands out to me at my age for reasons I can't explain. Great live version of Highway Star on disk 2. I can't actually find a lame track on either disk so I will leave it at this. Deep Purple is still relevant and heavy rock lives and breathes in their presence.Read full review
Panasonic PV-7451 VHS VCR
Still need a VCR-Panasonic is a good choice
I have owned a few VCR's since 1981 and the most durable and easiest to operate have been the Panasonics. The PV-7451 is from a generation of VCR's where they have perfected the engineering and operation. I don't like DVD r...ecorders for everyday taping of shows because of their complex menus. fragile discs and short lifespan so a VCR still makes sense.Read full review
Douk Audio Mini 6F3 Class A Vacuum Tube Amplifier Stereo HiFi Power Amp 4W×2 DIY
Worth every cent!
This amplifier is well built with quality parts and will power a set of monitor speakers with ease. I have been taken back to a simpler time of tubes, transformers and patchcords that makes hifi stereo listening fun again. ...Worth every cent!Read full review
Samsung Rugby III SGH-A997 - Black (Bell) Ultra Rugged Flip Phone - Brand New
Rock solid Rugby!
I'm not into smartphones because they are fragile and touchscreens are too finicky for my big paws! My first phone was an indestructible Motorola DPC-550 flip-phone that lasted through long days on construction sites and bou...ncing around in the truck. The Samsung Rugby is that type of phone with a solid feel and easy to use features that don't require a lot of thought to operate. The biggest problem with phones these days is that a drop on the floor will blast open the battery compartment or crack the screen. Not going to happen with this phone!!! Excellent speakerphone that is loud enough to be heard over idling motors and powertools.Read full review
HP LaserJet 4 Plus Workgroup Laser Printer
HP Laserjet 4+ is still a contender!
I am a system administrator for a medium sized company that prints about 37,000 sheets a month. Many printers have come and gone but the HP4 printers purchased in the early 1990's are still going strong with less repairs and... the lowest operating cost per sheet in the whole office. I have recently purchased 2 more HP4 printers to facilitate an expansion in staff and expect them to run a long time despite their age. They are ideal for custom tasks such as cheque and form printing.
The HP4 is still a contender!Read full review
