5.0 out of 5 stars Ink is as described, 30 Jan 2012
These work fine in the printer, and much much cheaper than the manufacturers replacement cartridges. Let's hope the ink quality is high, so it doesn't clog up the printhead. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 30 Jan 2012
Brilliant for mobile workers who need to pack up their Laptop on a daily basis.

I need a separate keyboard as I have a stand for my Laptop, which supports it in a vertical position - meaning I can't type on the Laptop Keyboard.

This is just the ticket.

Just don't forget to switch the keyboard off (switch underneath) when you pack it up, otherwise the batteries will die overnight when packed in a Rucksack (as the keys got pressed by other things in the rucksack pressing against the keyboard).

Only niggle is the keyboard layout is slightly different to the Laptop keyboard (Home and End are accessed via Function Keys). Get quickly accustomed to it in a week or so.


Hypertec LSTAND02HY - The Cool laptop stand is lightweight; highly portable stand which enables mobile users to set-up an height adjustable ergonomic workstation wherever they are. Used in conjunction with a separate keyboard and mouse the cool stand provides a practical alter (1Year warranty)

5.0 out of 5 stars No neck/shoulder strain any longer, 30 Jan 2012
Brilliant.

Allows the Laptop to be almost vertical, lifting the screen around 30cm off the desk surface. No longer getting any neck and shoulder strain.

Heartily recommended.

Only downside is that it doesn't come with a 'container' to put the bits in (two metals strips and 4 screw in pipes) when it's disassembled (it is after all, a stand for a Laptop, and a Laptop is principally for mobile workers such as me, who work in different offices - so it needs to be taken apart daily). This is easily solved by purchasing some A4 Postage Tubes (cheap on ebay).

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as expected - class 6 so good for hi-res digital cameras, 27 Sep 2010
Class 6 - so data can be written faster to the card than Class 2 or 4, which is ideal for a hi-res digital camera.
Worked without any issues - which really is as it should be.
No hesitation in recommending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worked well so far, 19 July 2010
NiHM battery as described. Not stored in a charged state for a long time (the benefit of these new type of NiMH batteries), so can't review this attribute. However as a rechargeable battery, does just as it says on the tin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong, rigid and does the job, 19 July 2010
What more can I say about a slab of polystyrene and plastic - does the job, think walled and keeps contents cool for quite a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as described, 19 July 2010
This review is from: Soil Spike - 40mm diameter
Does the job, exactly as described - Minky original.
Spent 10 mins thumping this into the ground (using a wooden block and a club hammer), and no damage to the metal (e.g. didn't bend/warp etc.). Not sure why other reviewers stated it was thin and flimsy - didn't cause me any problems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for storing laptop accessories in, 19 July 2010
Good for storing laptop accessories in - saves having to hunt down in the depths of a laptop bag for that USB Memory Stick etc.
Material is quite thin, but does the job.


TP Deck Chair Baby Swing Seat

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for toddlers - can't leave outside permanently, 19 July 2010
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Great swing which the toddlers really enjoy. All fittings supplied to fix swing in a number of positions from high up off the ground (saving adults' backs) to low down for a really good high swing.
However, the swing seat material is fabric (like a deck chair), so it cannot be left outside permanently, especially in the rain (the instructions supplied do note this to be the case).
Overall good value for money, and recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tiny device - perfect for carrying in the Laptop bag (along with wireless mouse, PSU, USB dongle, USB cable, USB charger...), 20 May 2010
If like me you're a mobile worker, frequenly working in different offices (often within the same day), packing an 'office' in the laptop backpack is essential. This tiny chap is one such device in my armoury.
