5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased, 17 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple plug and play. My intel 3g poirts were playing up so i had to use this add-in cards for more ports. Now i always believed that it was better to use the intel 3gbps onboard ports rather than a 6gbs add-in card, thats the normal forum advice. Well i benched my old samsung 830 on the intel ports when they were working fine and got an as-ssd score of 681. Tried the same bench via the marvel port on this card and got a score of 728 with the all important 4k scores almost identical, the Syba card actually giving slightly higher throughput. Given that this was a plug and play item on windows 7, all drives picked up fine on reboot, i am very happy. I havent tried booting from it but the specs say it should work fine as boot device. The card is the first item that shows in the boot menu on startup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good buy!, 14 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really like this immersion timer. It is rated for up to 16 amps which covers most immersions which are normally 13 amp for residential. The unit will stick out somewhat from the wall and requires a deep back, they recommend a 32mm gang box, this allows room for the rear of the unit to sit in which holds the in and out wiring. There is no earth on the unit so the manual states
"The earth wires should be connected to the wall box earthing terminal, or should be connected together using a single way connector block if there is no suitable earth terminal in the back box."
By the way the unit does not come with instructions so if required you need to grab one from the internet. You can program up to 4 separate on/off periods. These can be overridden by the adv/ovr button on the left side which goes through 4 options, click 1 will turn on/off until the next programed time as will the second click. The third click with turn on/off permanently as will the 4th click, in other words override the programs until you tell it otherwise. A red light will show at all times if it is receiving power and a green light will show when it is sending power to the immersion. The boost button will turn the immersion on for 1 hour with 1 click and for 2 hours with 2 clicks.
All in all an easy to use and easy to install unit for a reasonable price. You can set it to automatically adjust for british summer time and the current time is always displayed on the lcd.

3.0 out of 5 stars remote use was a problem, 7 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
well i read all the reviews about how easy this was to setup so bought it on that basis as i know how fiddly ip cams can be. My expereince has been that while viewing within your network is a painless setup and works well remote viewing from outside the home network proved impossible for me. I must say i work daily in IT and have setup other ip cams remotley but this one would not work no matter how i tries setting unit up and forwarding the ports.
Perhaps of more concern should be the reviews that followed right after this one and the one posted just after me saying how this really isnt that easy to setup. Then followed 3 quick reviews, all 5 stars, follow those links to see who wrote them and the other products they reviewed to understand what im concerned about.

Provides excellent support to ankle, upper foot and heel. Certainly makes a difference. Given the amount of stretch you might want to buy a size smaller than you think for a higher level of support.

This review is from: Speedo Duffel Bag (Sports)
Pretty much a workhourse in terms of 30 litre duffle bags. Light and strong with two extra pockets on the exterior. Now one of those pockets is meant to house the shoulder strap if not being used since the strap is only removable at one end and must be stored on the bag itself, however it still leaves enough room for other things in the same pocket though. There is also another zip pocket internally. I must saying having the shoulder strap fully stitched at one end and not removable seems crazy. Its very light weight being made from a flimsy type material but very strong in use, ive had no issues carrying heavy items. Having tried sveral duffel bags at this capacity i think its something of a classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars gen 4 was better, 7 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this gen v5 is step backward for me. They advertise it as being wider but honestly its hardly noticeable over gen4. The big change is the bulk added to the speakers rear pad that houses the cross section of the left and right speaker wires. The added bulk on the speakers is now enough to give me earache if i sleep on that ear, this does not happen with past generations which had flatter speakers. You can buy gen 4 £10 cheaper than this one and honestly i cannot think of a single reason to buy gen 5 over gen 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars good bubbles!, 7 Aug. 2015

decent bubble wrap. Some bubble wrap comes way to this with small bubbles requiring 2 or 3 times more length for full item protection than larger bubbles such as this one. good value.
