5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little devices, 27 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SOT23 to DIP Adapter (Electronics)
These small boards are excellent for working with SOT23 devices on, e.g., breadboard or protoboard.

They are surprisingly easy to solder - just coat the small terminals with solder, place the device on top with tweezers, and apply a light touch of a fine soldering iron tip.

I was expecting to waste a few of these practising, but they soldered on fine first time.

I have some 3 pin and 5 pin devices, and without these I don't know what I would have done!

Fast postage too.


Kryptonite Kryptoflex 7 ft Cable Lock (10 mm x 213 cm)

4.0 out of 5 stars Long!, 12 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Measure up your bike/lock needs when ordering this item. 7ft is pretty long, and you don't want to have too much flex in the cable as it makes it easier for thieves to position cutting tools.

I believe they do a 3 or 4ft cable which might satisfy your needs.

Solid construction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, can use with gloves, 12 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The lock is pretty solid, and the tumblers large enough to be usable while wearing gloves.

As with any cable locks, I wouldn't imagine it would take long to cut, but if you use it in combination with a D-lock you should be fine.

The cable is pretty long - long enough to go around both wheels and a fixing point.

Would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but pretty good, 12 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must admit to being fairly suspicious of all the positive reviews for something so cheap, so I was prepared for the worst when the item arrived the day after shipping (the day after ordering).

Happily, my worries were unfounded. The case fit well and seems tough, and the screen protector fits fine (always hard to remove bubbles on these things - make sure you clean the screen with a drop of rubbing alcohol or similar).

The only two issues I have are that the charger hole isn't perfect - but being plastic you can stretch the case until the cable fits correctly, and that the power button is a little stiff to use. Having the volume button directly on the other side is more of a design fault with Samsung, but over time I'm sure the touch will soften.

Very happy with such a cheap item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passed 1st time, 22 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product, I passed first time no problem. Be warned that this will only work on a Windows PC with a DVD-ROM drive!

I also recommend purchasing a paper copy of the highway code as the online version is tricky to navigate.

Thoroughly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Genuine, bassy, great value for money, 1 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was concerned that I was sent a fake after these earphones arrived in "Eco" packaging. However after checking Creative's "Spot a Fake" website [...] all is good.

The earphones are indeed very bassy, which is good if you don't mind losing clarity in the higher ranges (e.g. classical music doesn't sound great to me).

The cable was a perfect length for MP3 player/mobile phone in pocket, but too short for a Desktop PC and just about OK for a laptop.

Great value for money!

3.0 out of 5 stars 5/32" bit holder - be warned!, 15 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this along with the Draper 38716 33-Piece Security Bit Set (with the "Buy together" link from Amazon) - THESE ARE NOT COMPATIBLE:

This set has a 5/32" bit holder (this is not clear from the product information). The Security Bit Set (as stated) has a 1/4" bit holder.

Both seem like good bits of kit, but don't expect them both to work with each other!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent precision, function and great value for money, 26 Sep 2011
I spent quite a while searching Amazon/eBay for a max/min thermometer with reasonable accuracy, and that didn't reset it's statistics every day.

While this looks rather hideous, it does an excellent job and is very inexpensive.

I have tested this thermometer with a mercury analogue, and both agree to within 0.2C, which is good enough for the price.

Other max/min thermometers have worse accuracy (1C - despite claiming 0.1C "precision" which is meaningless).

Clear display, the only downside is the plastic housing. A more compact version wouldn't go amiss.
