TP-LINK PA411KIT AV500 500 Mbps Powerline Adapter Starter Kit- Twin Pack
TP-LINK PA411KIT AV500 500 Mbps Powerline Adapter Starter Kit- Twin Pack
Price: £24.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly, 26 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works perfectly - I get exactly the same speed through multiple floors, as you would if you connect a device via ethernet directly to the router.

If you're having issues trying get the homeplug devices to sync up, don't hold down the sync button, you just need to press it once on the one connected to the router, and then press sync on the other homeplug.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great!, 26 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ran out of sata ports on my motherboard, and needed to connect a DVD-RW drive (Although I haven't connected any hdds to the card, so I don't know what the actual transfer speeds are like). The pci-e card is very small so fits in the case easily! I thought it was worth spending a little bit more on the card rather than some of the cheaper £10 random brand versions. Definitely cheaper to buy through Amazon, as it's near £50 on the actual Startech website.

Took about 10 minutes to get up and running with this card. Definitely recommended if you want a couple more sata slots!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 25 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had mistakenly bought a mini-display port to HDMI cable to connect a 3rd monitor (Unaware that the cable would be a 'passive' one). I did some more research and found out you actually needed an 'active' converter. I found this one by Startech and it works perfectly, I can now hook up 3 monitors!

Great product, just wish it was a little cheaper though!

1.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but low quality., 26 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even those these were expensive they feel like cheap £15 headphones. The wire is so thin I know it's not going to be long before it snaps - compared with the Sennheiser HD model wires (Which are a lot thicker and durable).

Bass is OK though, but returning these and getting one of the HD models.

Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design (Voices That Matter)
Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design (Voices That Matter)
by Dan Cederholm
Edition: Paperback
Price: £28.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Dan!, 11 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the 2nd of Dan's books I've bought, and it's definitely worth the money. After reading his Web Standards Solutions markup book, I was eager to buy more of his CSS books. Both books are great for reading, but are also a great reference book that you can always refer back to.

Handcrafted CSS is beautifully presented, with a lot of screenshots, which is particularly imported in any CSS book. The designs demonstrated are modern, clean and web 2.0. The book also covers various CSS3 properties as well, and gives examples for browsers that don't yet support CSS3 (IE!!!!).

The only downside I would mention, and I think it has also been mentioned by other people as well, is that this book is just over 200 pages. I wish it was twice as long!
