5.0 out of 5 stars Great training shorts, 29 Dec. 2015
Top quality again from YogaAddict.

These Yoga shorts are so comfortable to do yoga and other training in. No uncomfortable seams to stick into you and stay on comfortably without having to tighten up the drawstring.

They are so comfortable I end up wearing them about the house too.

The fabric is of such high quality and it stretches and fits so well, they really are my favourite training shorts because of this.

If you're after top quality then I'd highly recommend these shorts.

Great second hand computers for the price. Everything you need except speakers.

I'm sure you could upgrade to Windows 10 too without issue.

The hardware is sound and the computer also comes pre-installed with basic software and NO malware/bloatware - which is better than new PCs these days!

It's crazy how far memory has come. To think you can fit so much on such a tiny device and have such fast read/writes. Well worth the money and worth buying a brand like SanDisk for great quality and performance. I'm using one of these for extra storage space in an Intel Compute Stick which is on 24/7 so this card is in constant use day in day out and is faultless.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars So Nearly There, 29 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tiny computer was bought for use with a large screen display showing latest news and events etc for my local football club. The computer is on 24/7, running through slideshows and videos and never has any issues/crashes etc.

That's the good news, there were problems setting up though;
- It came with Windows 10 pre-installed but instantly needed an update which it did not have enough space to install. Even with a MicroSD card installed it did not have enough space to download and install the update.
- So to get around this issue I downloaded the latest Windows 10 ISO and tried to install - did not work and would not finish installing no matter what I tried
- In the end I installed Windows 8.1 and it's been running that ever since as I lost patience and did not have the time to keep messing with it!

On the plus side:
+ The system runs perfectly for what it was purchased for (running as a public information board/display)
+ HD videos play-back very smoothly
+ It can run 24/7 with very tiny energy usage
+ It's quite fast for average use/web browsing etc

Overall:
+ It could do with at least 64GB primary storage space - this would allow for Windows updates to be installed at least!
+ 4GB RAM would be nice
+ Wireless works well and has good reception
+ Some people have complained that it only has one USB - I didn't really find this an issue as setup using a hub and now it's plugged into the TV just has a USB Keyboard/Mouse combination plugged in so only using one USB port

All in all, I think I'd wait for v2 of this hardware as it's sure to have more memory and RAM.

Great value speakers that deliver a lot for the tiny price. I was pretty impressed with the build quality, sound and look of these speakers for the price. The sounds clear and bassy enough at decent volumes, although you can't push them too loud. All in all great speakers for the price.

The USB power source is ideal as this means the speakers turn on and off with your PC.

The cables are of good length too so you can use with say a desktop/tower computer on the floor and still have the speakers on your desk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy Cable, 7 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very well put together quality cable which also looks a lot slicker than the Apple originals. Judging by the build quality I'm sure the cable will last a long time. Charging and syncing works perfectly on both my iPhone and iPad and is as fast as the Apple originals.

I've bought the Amazon Basics cables before and have always been impressed with them too but saw this and liked the aesthetics so thought I'd give it a go.

Highly recommended.

These are a fantastic quality cable. Really well made and perfect sound quality using the cable to connect my TV and surround sound system. Now every HDMI device connected to my device goes to the surround sound system by default and passes on the 5.1 surround sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap But Effective Power Strip, 7 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a cheap surge protected power strip which does the job. I bought three together and they all work fine however the LED on one isn't lighting up so not sure whether this means the surge protection isn't working. (I'll update this review once I have contacted the seller for advice).

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid CDs which look fantastic, 7 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These CDs really look amazing. I use an Epson printer (Epson Expression Photo XP-860) and SureThing Disc Labeller Gold 6 and get perfect results printing onto these CDs.

I've had no miss-writes out of three boxes of these CD's and have written to them on a number of devices. I've always used and recommended Verbatim media and this product lives up to my expectations. I use Nero Burning ROM 2016 to write CDs and DVDs and find it to be the most reliable burning solution.

If you're having problems writing to them I'd recommend updating your optical drive's firmware as this is usually the source of mis-writes.
