4.0 out of 5 stars Good replacement., 17 Sep 2014
Works a treat - The Ionisation sensors were too sensitive, so we swapped it with this device.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just fine., 11 Sep 2014
These are basic but perfectly adequate, and reasonably attractive. I've used them with both sea-salt granules and with peppercorns.

They take 4 x AA batteries each, which are not provided.

The previous generation of this device was MUCH better. It allowed a wider range of frequencies to be selected, and the signal strength was better.

On the plus side, the 30-pin connector is much better than previous devices.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can make phonecalls?, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this for the FM transmitter feature. I think I might have used it to make a phonecall once, but the FM transmitter feature is superb. I have finally found a device that provides clear reception in my car, and even better uses A2DP to link to my phone so one less cable needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and handy, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought 2 sets of these so that we had 4 handsets, and used them car-to-car while on a long journey into France.

They laughed at me when we bought them, but they were great. Both fun and useful.

Range even in a car is good, and in the open is excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...what it says on the tin., 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a number of these around the house, and at this (subsidised) price, they are a no-brainer. Go for it.

I find that the TV edition of these products is overkill, I use this PC device with TVs as well to turn the audio system on and off along with the TV.

I did have to ding it 1 star because it is possible to confuse it if you have a top-end gaming graphics card in your PC. The video card takes so much power, that when you stop playing games, the power drain drops right off, and it thinks you've stopped the PC :( They say it can be "taught" but I didn't manage it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underpowered misleading specs, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If I just wanted a 7-port USB 2.0 hub, then this device would be great, and I would be giving it 5 stars. Sadly I wanted something a little more capable, and that is where it fell short. In particular:

- 7 ports of 500mA each - That adds up to 3.5Amps. Unfortunately, reading the D-Link datasheet it is suggested that you draw no more than 2.4Amps, and the supplied power supply is a 3A power brick

- 2 fast-charge ports. I do not believe that the descrition mentions that these 2 ports are only fast charge ports if the hub is unplugged from the PC... Yes, it is a charger only if it is no-longer a hub.

*SIGH* I'm afraid it can only possibly score 3 stars.

The USB 3.0 Anker devices are a teeny bit more expensive, but significantly better in every respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars No problems. I'll be getting another., 28 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This drive is whisper-quiet, and compared to my other drives runs positively cold.

I've had it a couple of months, put it to some strenuous use running 24x7 as a backup drive on a server.

I will be picking up a second one and replacing 2 older, noisier, smaller, hotter drives with it.

Utterly hilarious as is all his work, and what an amazing venue.

If you are unsure about buying this, check some of the official shorts published on YouTube, then come back and buy it.
