Magewell XI100DUSB-SDI SDI to USB 3.0 Video Capture Dongle

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid and reliable capture device, 16 Feb. 2015
Excellent capture device. No drivers required.
I am using several of them for Lecture capture on Win 7 and Win 8.1 PCs, capturing from HD-SDI cameras at 1280 x 720 30fps.
Solid and reliable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silky warmth, 7 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good price and a nice fleecy material.
N.B. Give it a wash before use (as instructions suggest) or it will shed fluff over everything.
After a wash it comes up silky and fluffy, no shedding. Very warm for its weight.
Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars The couch surfers friend, 7 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works a treat on my media PC. Keys + mouse pad are responsive.
Allows me to play movies, listen to music or surf web from the sofa.
Buttons can be hard to read in low light - a dab of Tippex hilights the frequently used vol+, vol- , mute, pause keys...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, inexpensive, effective, 25 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first came across these drag-style peelers on holiday in France and brought one home with me.
This is exactly the same Castor brand.
Simple, inexpensive and does a great job.
Perfect for most vegetables - great on butternut squash, parsnips, etc. as well as potatoes.
The old one is still going strong after eight years - this new one is a Christmas gift.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight warm layer, 25 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for travelling - it's super lightweight, packs down to nothing and provides an extra layer of warmth for chilly times.
Overall it works best worn as a layer; being a simple stitched through vest, it's not that warm on its own.

Usual (excellent) Patagonia quality and finish.

I bought in a sale so the price was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performance and value, 16 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd been planning to upgrade to an SSD but the cost of something large enough for a system drive has been off-putting.
512GB for GB£149 was what finally made me go for it.
This SSD has full 500/500 read write speeds (in the 512GB version).
Installation was painless and installing Win 8.1 was fast.
End result is spectacular with 14sec boot and 7sec shutdown. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hunting jacket, 9 May 2014
I've had one of these for over a year now and have worn it for both shooting and general outdoor wear.

Overall I rate it highly; fit and finish are excellent. Fabric is waterproof, silent and a good neutral colour for camouflage.
Pockets are roomy enough for hat and gloves or a box of 12g cartridges. The draft proof cuffs are very practical and over all the jacket is warm enough for all round use with appropriate layers. Sizing is on the large size.

A smart, stylish, well designed jacket for general outdoor or shooting use.

Shop around for a good price (look at the German outdoor sites for good prices).

5.0 out of 5 stars A long lasting design classic, 9 May 2014
First I have to state, these G1000 fabric jackets are not totally waterproof, even after application of Greenland wax; they are 'rain resistant'.
They are however hard wearing, windproof and very fast drying. Basically fine woven canvas with a light wax dressing.

The plus points are;

breathable
very hard wearing
almost silent fabric
very windproof
a classic design that's ergonomically sound - retro chic
decent pockets
can be worn around camp fires without spark damage
very well made
will outlast any modern waterproof jacket, whether DWR softshell or breathable membrane types
machine washable - use one of the 'friendly' soap based cleaners

Negatives are;

not fully waterproof; rain will eventually soak through
can be expensive in UK - shop around (or buy s/h on eBay)
waxing is a minor chore (approx 20 min for a jacket); waxing really improves the abrasion resistance and lifetime of the fabric.

Verdict: great all round outdoor jacket if heavy rain is not anticipated.
Like the old UK army combat jacket, it gets wet when it rains but it dries out rapidly.
Can be stuffed in a bag or rucksack, abused and neglected and still comes up looking great.

I've got five of them (2 x Greenland, winter Greenland, Hunter, Varu) and they do grow on you. ;-)

Look for the Fjallraven Hydratic jackets (Varu etc.) if you need a fully waterproof jacket.
