5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Sci Fi, 23 Sep 2014
Enjoyed this although the first few episodes were a little slow in places.
Pierce Gagnon did a good job as Ethan in providing a believable Android and despite the obvious ending I look forward to seeing what happens if there is a second season

4.0 out of 5 stars Very bright laser, 25 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as I needed a brighter laser than the cat laser toy I have.
One of my cats follows his brothers onto the roof tops across the road but gets stuck.
I have used the cat toy laser to guide him back the wayhe got up but it's not bright enough to use in broad daylight.
This green laser definitely is and it did guide him back down yesterday afternoon.

Using it with the patterned heads pointed at the ceiling keeps the cats happily watching but I would not use it without the head as it does have a very powerful beam for it's size.

It seems well built with a solid feel and the battery case screws together with the laser section so unlike some it doesn't fall aprt.
The heads screw into place and can rotate to alter the pattern
The button is a press to make non locking type so it will only operate while you keep your finger on it.

Overall it is a good laser but I have only given it 4 stars as I haven't used it long enough to find out how it will last.

Tool free box for your 2.5" HDD or SSD.

The cover can be a little awkward to cllose until you get the hang of it.

Fast when connected to usb 3.0 port.

4.0 out of 5 stars solidly built, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well built from a good grade of metal and the holes are in the right places to fit a 2.5" HDD or SSD.
Fits straight into a 3.5" bay without problems

Unfortunately it did not fit my Dell BTX case as the SSD is recessed when fitted and sata and power connectors are too far back to reach with the cables used in the dell. It would be a good idea to check your own case and cables before purchasing

Would be fine in my other ATX case and will be using it there when I upgrade that.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Comfortable nights sleep, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After 3 nights on this it's time for a review

Arrived packet in a large blue bag and was not vacuum packed so it was ready to use as soon as it was put on the bed.
There were a couple of ridges where it had been folded but these disappeared in a few minutes.

Smell: there was a slight chemical smell on opening it but after airing it on the bed for a couple of hours you needed to stick your nose right onto the topper to smell it. Not noticeable at all after 3 nights.

Size: 135cm wide, 187cm long, 7.5cm deep. It is listed as 190cm long and as the measurements were taken as soon as it was put on the bed it may have expanded to 190cm since then. My mattress is also 187cm anyway

Density and Feel: compared to my other thinner topper this seems to be a lower density memory foam. I would class this as a medium or medium/firm topper rather than a firm topper. It springs back to it's original shape quickly which, if like me, you tend to move around the bed means that it changes shape to fit your new position quickly.
Very comfortable to sleep on and helped relieve the bad back I had when I got this.

I am giving it 4 stars only because I do not know how it will perform over time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice clean carpets, 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to set up and feeling solid once assembled.

Tested the upholstery tool first.
This worked well leaving the settee clean and not to wet so that it dried quickly.
Took a little bit of practice to get the water jet exactly where I wanted it but once that was done it worked well.

On Carpets
I tried it on the carpet by the front door and the main living room carpet.
Both appeared quite clean but it was surprising how much dirt was washed out.
After cleaning it was particularly noticeable how much better the high traffic areas looked with brighter colours and the pile raised up.

The spinning brush bar is a big plus as this helps to raise the pile as well as drag out more dirt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast USB 3.0 drive, 7 July 2014
Tried this in both USB 2 and USB 3 ports on my desktop and laptop.
Connected to USB 2 it performed faster than my USB 2 flash drives averaging between 7MB/s and 12MB/s writing 5GBs of mixed data.
On a larger folder it performed around 12MB/s for the full 20Gbs

Reading the same data onto the laptop using usb 3.0 the speed averaged around 34MB/s peaking at around 50MB/s.
Very impressed with the speed.

With the rugged rubber cover it will survive a few knocks and drops though I doubt I will be testing the water resitance
