5.0 out of 5 stars Much better performance than existing, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When mice chewed my twinned Cat 6 network cables they were renewed with Konig product, and the 'drop outs' have reduced a huge amount, also picture is clearer and resolution better. These are being used with end converters to transmit a HDMI signal around 40m

We do city breaks regularly and always buy the DK booklets in pocket-size. Googling the features is OK but you need a decent map and reference booklet too before and during the visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cressi Sub quality as usual, 26 Feb 2014

Had my last pair ten years and they are as good as new, these are as close to perfect as you can get. Well worth the extra paid over cheapo kiosk masks sold at seaside. Good investment


Fat Spanner 25 Piece Bicycle Tool Kit
Fat Spanner 25 Piece Bicycle Tool Kit

4.0 out of 5 stars good kit, not quite there though, 26 Feb 2014
Was bought this as a biethday gift, so all the scattered tools could be kept in one place, and also grabbed for the boot of the backup vehicle on longer rides, but two key jobs on a Cannondale bike tripped up on first use. The multi-cone spanners are identical, but no 17mm so had to revert to an ordinary combination spanner, plus there isn' t a 10mm Allen key for the crank bolt. Spanners are strong though and the padding on the pedal spanner to avoid scratching the crank ois a nice touch. So good but check your sizes before buying!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not consistent performance, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sandisk stuff is usually good but I've relegated this to inside an SD adapter for lugging files around, it wasn't reliable in a Garmin VIRB Elite action camera. That may be because the camera is picky, maybe because the card needs to be top drawer to work in that gadget, it works in everything else though.

Must be the speed, this works so much better than the Ultra range, pay the extra and enjoy higher performance, also useful for sticking into a full size SD adapter and carrying files around in your wallet

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential kit for converting to SSDs, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Essential kit for converting to SSDs, powered although the mains plug was a little dodgy quality at the transformer plug end, this doesn't matter as you only use it a few times even in a multiple office computer site.

Allows you to hitch the SSD and do a system image onto it, in my case using Samsung drives and their FABULOUS system transfer utility.

Also good for swapping hard drives painlessly

3.0 out of 5 stars You CAN fix Windows 8/8.1 to look exactly like Windows 7..., 21 Feb 2014
Running a small design office means PCs have to work, and work smoothly and reliably; messing with colleague's Outlook, accessing CAD or a spreadsheet will possibly lose a project order or worse, a client. Fortunately I was able to trial W8 on the home PC and whilst gasping in astonishment that someone could think this appropriate for the business user environment, was relieved that it had been let nowhere near work until a solution was found. That solution was a dinky little free programme called Classic Shell, located after a spot of Googling and the answer to your prayers. Windows 8 has undoubtedly been speeded up under the bonnet, no doubt because they couldn't carry on making ever bloatier software when the demand was tablets with limited battery, cooling and processor performance. The trouble is they restyled the outside and swapped the steering-wheel, accelerator and brake around...
Classic Shell allows you to turn off the charms, boot into a W7 desktop, yet enjoy all the little improvements to the system whilst working familiar controls to compute. I've no connection but they're my heroes...

Cheers

These are fitted to high end bikes but are cheap to buy, no punctures so far provided you change when tread worn away
