Braun Digital Travel Clock, Black
Braun Digital Travel Clock, Black
Price: £25.26

4.0 out of 5 stars Small!!!, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great clock, just really small. It's about 5cm x 5cm it's got a good alarm and the radio clock is good but you can't see it at all without the illumination in anything less than daylight.
The snooze is easy to switch to off because it's so small.
Other than that it's a perfect alarm clock. It illuminates about 5 seconds before going off, great if you're trying not to wake up someone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Well, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace a very cheap failed unit, this is much sturdier and works well. Good reception strength, easy set-up, you probably can do without the included bloatware app though.

It's used as a temporary solution for a desktop in a small business, the extension cable means you can have it mounted out of the way of all the other cables and interference at the back of the PC.

Good value for money. Good Product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Item Failed Fast, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked poorly for a couple of hours then failed. Poor wireless speed less than 10m from router. Probably best avoided for all but temporary use. Exemplifies the phrase "You get what you pay for"!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Written Autobiography There Is, 24 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Autobiography (Kindle Edition)
Reasonably uniquely written, no chapters, it just flows from the page.
Everything you would expect and want is here. Like you knew it would be!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works without being noticed. Setting-up can be slightly annoying., 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought from Marketplace I expected this to come with 2x 1TB disks but it only came with one. No big issue but seller could have been clearer. Possibly better to buy bare and fit your own drives.

Set-up like other users mention can be a bit annoying although I believe this is mainly because you need to reboot the unit if you make changes, that certainly sorted out our install. Virtually no instructions ship with the unit so you need to have a web connection active to install it successfully.

Be aware that you need a fixed IP to use this as a mail server.

Currently set up as RAID1 over a wireless network write speed can be slow but otherwise no problems. Unit is quiet, unnoticeable in normal life sat by the router. Perfect for a small business NAS with security of RAID backup

5.0 out of 5 stars Why would you ever buy a traditional kettle again?, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace an old Tefal Quick Cup, this boiler works in a similar but different way. Instead of the quick cup style that heats as it pours this unit heats internally like a kettle then dispenses, all in the same amount of time. I'd agree with all the other reviews, the water is really hot, just like a kettle so it's better than the Quick Cup. The adjustable dispense amount works well and the stop button is more obvious and works fast too, way better than the Quick Cup.
This boiler has a drip tray capable of holding about half a mug if someone unwittingly uses a cup instead of a mug and it doesn't drip or leak after use.
It's also got a smaller footprint than a Quick Cup and can be filled like a kettle. Probably easier to fill with a separate jug.
The blue neon glow it emits when in use is unnecessary and a bit garish but apart from that the boiler is great. Quieter than a kettle and only boils what you need saving you money and probably saving the environment a little bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent package, incredible at this price., 17 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As we were only watching catch-up on a virgin media box we ditched the cable and bought this instead. It's got all the catch up services iPlayer 4oD, itvPlayer etc and is completely free to use.
The stand is way better than other TV's we've had, picture better than last years Samsung we bought. All round there's nothing to beat it at the price. DVD's are super sharp, great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading - Appalling Construction., 17 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All the reviews are true. You need this for the exam, it'll be in pieces after the day's training course and it'll be a ragged pile of loose leaves if you need it for reference afterwards. Why can't this be ring bound like an onsite guide???

5.0 out of 5 stars Plug, Play, Go!, 17 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dropped it in to an Asus motherboard, powered up, and it worked straight away. No hassle, no fuss, does exactly what it says on the tin.
