3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product does what it's meant to, but only just. It's not suitable if you run any sort of torrent client or other P2P software, as doing so will cause the unit to crash, requiring a reset to get it going again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great plug, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The rocker switch on the back of this plug is great and makes it very easy to switch appliances off in hard to reach plug sockets (IE: a wall plug at the back of computer desk).

The only negative thing is it's rather compact, and hence a bit tricky to wire up, but it's worth the effort...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stand, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This stand is extremely steady, and the perfect way to hold your monitor steady on your desk without any wobble. The only disadvantage is the size if the base, but that is what make's it so stable. If you aren't in the position to buy a stand that affixes itself to the desk with some sort of clamp then this is the perfect stand.


Max Value Enclosure for 2.5 inch SATA HDD

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cheap enclosure for occassional use., 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does the trick if you have a drive you wish to access for an old broken laptop or whatever. However as can be expected for the price, it's rather basic and comes with very sparse instructions.

The drive must be held in place by fixing it to the PCB board by the holes on the underside of the drive, if you don't do this it will rattle about in the enclosure.

The screws in the side of the case that hold the whole thing together go into the sides of the front and back plastic inserts, and care must by taken not to over tighten these screws as the plastic is quite soft.

The blue panel at the front does not light up as implied in the picture, although the PCB does contain the markings for the LEDs to be fixed onto it to achieve that, so I guess they have been omitted to save money and could easily be purchased and soldered on if you really needed that.

That said, this is a great enclosure for the price, and includes the option of connecting via eSATA aswell as USB, and a power input should you not wish to use a USB for power whilst using eSATA. (Needless to say you will need to purchase a seperate power adaptor to make use of that connector)

5.0 out of 5 stars No errors so far, 10 Jan 2012
Used about 1/4 of the DVDs so far and haven't had any errors, like all value DVDs they aren't the best quality and you can see through them if you hold them up to a light, that said you get what you pay for, and as a cheap option these are better than similar offered by supermarkets for a slightly dearer price. I'll be buying these again, as they are a cheap option to back up data, and at the price you can make 2 copies just to be sure :)
