Biscuits at home. I love these and have one with a cuppa every morning so it's great to buy in bulk.

5.0 out of 5 stars iMac - 32gb, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've got two of these and replaced my 2x2gb RAM with 4x8gb in my iMac 27' (2011), yes it's not supported by Apple, but i've been using my iMac without any issues for several months in this configuration.
Having the extra RAM really helps with Final Cut Pro and running Windows in a VM.
When installing I ran a full MemTest86 test (by PassMark) to check the RAM and no issues were identified.

5.0 out of 5 stars Safe the batteries., 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A single charge lasts a long time, it works well. Just a shame I can't just by a second battery (or have the option to purchase one charger with two batteries) for the trackpad. But will be purchasing another one soon as they really are good value for money. They look good in front of the iMac.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and reliable, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've got two monitors attached to my iMac at work attached to the two thunderbolt ports. The picture is clear and runs at 1080p without issue.
I probably did not need 2m length for the monitor on the right but nice to have the option to move it further away should the situation require.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had a problem with my hackintosh not initialising the bluetooth dongle correctly on occasion, so having the on off switches makes life easier. Probably not the usual application for this good and inexpensive usb hub. It works a lot better than the six (some of them a lot more expensive) hubs that I've had to send back because they have broken.
I've been that impressed with it I brought another one for work to save bending down behind the computer to plug things in.

Just a little note, the usb port on the end can charge my iPhone but it does not seem get seen by the computer. It's probably by design and not a fault and is what I want when charging my iPhone without iTunes popping up every time I connect it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for final cut pro, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only draw back with this is having to remember to start the software (or automate loading it like I've finally done).
Makes editing movies in Final Cut Pro so much easier. Your workflow will be a lot faster and easier than using the mouse/trackpad.
If you don't want to splash out for it's big brother then go for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Problems resolved., 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brought this as I was having issues with my Mac Mini being really slow in screen sharing because the Mac is headless (no monitor attached). It's a known issue with the mac mini because the graphics driver does not get loaded and therefore the graphics acceleration does not happen. I brought this, inserted a resistor and now can remote into my mini without the painful lag.

If you have the same issue try searching google for "Build a Dummy Dongle for a headless Mac mini"
Basically get a 85ohm resistor and insert into pins 1 and 6.
I'm sure it works well when connecting a VGA monitor but have not tested that.

Only four stars? Well they are not the best of quality, so if you are looking for professional ping pong balls you might need to look a little bit more. However for my application they fit the bill and budget.

This review is from: Tube Of Plastic Marbles (Toy)
I needed marbles that weren't glass (Safety). These fit the bill. They are round (thankfully) and marble like. Naturally a little lighter than a glass marble.

I'm struggling to get excited about sticks that you put in the ground to stop plants from falling over. These sticks do it reasonably well, but they are a little on the bendy side for some applications.
