Laptop Battery for Samsung NT-N210 Plus, NT-N218,
Laptop Battery for Samsung NT-N210 Plus, NT-N218,
Offered by Delta Enterprise
Price: 18.79

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised., 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is no such thing as a Samsung netbook computer NT-N210 plus but I took the chance it was a typo in the description and should read NP-N210 plus. It does fit the NP-N210 plus.
Also this battery is advertised as being 5200mAh in storeage capacity and indeed that is what it says on the battery itself. The reality is different though as it measures just 4300mAh capacity according to the battery monitoring software I have on the netbook. Also the battery that arrived was black in colour and not as per the displayed picture.

Technically this is a breach of contract and of the Trade Descriptions Act in the United Kingdom.

Delivery was prompt although the anti static packaging inside the box was broken. In this case not a big issue.
I have yet to decide whether to make a return as the pricing is in line with the lower capacity 4400mAh advertised on Amazon elsewhere and it does appear to be working albeit it is not going to keep my netbook running as long as a true 5200mHa would have done.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worked for a week then died., 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I should have listened to the other one star reviews. While it worked it was fine. Over 130 freeview channels, DAB radio and FM Radio from the house aerial. The Arcsoft software that comes with it is adequate but lacks the detailed control I look for so for example you can not record directly form the program listing in the EPG but you have to set start time and finish time like an old video tape recorder.

Worked fine under Windows 8.1 and do not believe some reviews that said windows * drivers were not on the cd - they are. In fact there are specific Windows 8 32 and 64 bit versions.

It lasted just over one week and then it was no longer recognised by the computer..

Not as good as his other albums and I have them all. Somehow Newton has tried to do something different this time and it does not quite work for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its OK for the price, 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having purchased a much more expensive Bluedio headset only to have the headband crack, these were purchased as an alternative. They have kept together and the sound reproduction is OK but not exceptional however I do experience annoying signal dropout creating gap of a second or so in my listening every now and then. Not annoying enough to send them back but it does mean I would go back to the Bluedios if I thought the headband problem would not repeat itself.

barely worth the money but it will do until I can find something better. Bought it for my Asus Transformer TF101 and I have to leave one of the corner restraints off because it presses on the power switch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing, 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a real story, not a work of fiction, but it is as every bit as gripping as a thriller.

Linda's story is a roller coaster with tremendous lows and highs and amazing pace. Through it all is the amazing love and power of Jesus who still transforms lives, heals and sets people free from the worst you can imagine. Abuse, miscarriage, assaults, raped, strip clubs, alcohol / drug addiction, prostitution, slavery, beaten, prison, and terminal cancer feature in a story of rescue, deliverance, salvation, restoration, healing and miracles.

A real page turner from Ralph Turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars works with bt hub2, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading many reviews of competing products have difficult set ups, I decided to go for this netgear. The one button set up does not work with my bt hub 2 but the manual technique described in the booklet that comes with the extender had me up and running in less than ten minutes and part of that was to read the instructions. My advice, plug it in close to your main router to do the set up, you need a wireless device with an internet browser and then just follow the included booklet's option two. It really is not complicated and works well. Once set up, unplug it and place it where you want bearing in mind that it has to be within the range of your original router to be able to repeat and send the signal further on. I cannot see that this would not work with any other router after all it is the signal it is repeating and that has to comply with the 802.11 protocol; it is not the hardware that is important. How much further it extends the range I cannot comment on. It has done the job I needed it to do and now the upper floor of my house enjoys as strong a signal as the lower floor does from the home hub2. (The home hub2 being a Thompson router underneath the plastic).

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost windows 7&8 plug and play., 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The claim that this device is window 7&8 compliant is true and certainly if you require it for data transfer the standard drivers will be fine. If however, you want it for connecting blue tooth headphones/microphone etc then make sure you use the drivers on the enclosed cd as they have extra features that will make the audio work properly. Without them it is going to sound like you are underwater. As this was not clear in any of the descriptions, I wasted a lot of time experimenting with my bluetooth headset not realising it was my pc drivers at fault.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost Great, 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only "almost" because the out of the box experience is not satisfactory. It takes some setting up of your devices to get it sounding right. It is Bass heavy as other reviewers have said and that is what I like but, without any adjustment, all of the ranges of sounds are muddy. It takes some time and patience to configure the audio spectrum of your devices to get the sound right and when you do, it sounds good. The inbuilt mp3 has a limited number of sound profiles and none of them produce the right balance at all. All of them are muffled to one degree or another - not good.
As a musician who has a lot of experience of sound mixing, this is a set of headphones that should only be purchased by users who are prepared to put some work in to making them sound right. Also do not expect the standard windows 7 and 8 bluetooth drivers to give you a good audio experience - you will need to find better ones otherwise these headphones will sound like you are underwater and they do exist but it depends on what blue tooth transmitter device you have so I cannot give you recommendations here.
So lots of tweaking required means that it looses two stars.

Update at 6 weeks in use - a hairline crack has appeared in the headband and some of the cushioning is coming away. Amazon has arranged a return and a refund. I am now debating whether to reorder or go for something else.

3.0 out of 5 stars To short., 9 May 2013

Could have done with an extra 1 metre especially given how expensive this was. It works but I have had to make some concessions to make it practical and rethink where my audio devices are positioned in the car.
