4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to work, 20 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was quite sceptical about this ring having tried several other products to control my snoring.
However it seems to work, not all the time, but my wife reports either little or no snoring from me since I started wearing the ring so I have to say that it is having enough of an effect to keep using it.
Happy days - we both get an undisturbed nights sleep.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great charger, annoying display, 21 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great little battery, seems to work OK but it's very early days given some of the reports of poor reliability.
The shake to charge feature is very sensitive, just picking the device up turns it on.
The led display flashes while charging a phone, very distracting at night as the display stays on the whole time. I might have to tape over it to use in the bedroom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, practical bag, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been looking for a decent bag to hold my tablet or my netbook and the sundry bits and bobs for travel and holidays, this bag is perfect for my needs.
Nice soft leather, lots of zipped pockets for money, passports and travel documents, two generous compartments easily large enough for my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 or my 11 inch netbook.
I haven't had a chance to use it outside yet so can't comment on practicality or how the strap performs

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but too many lights, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived promptly.
The hub is great but could do without the bright blue illuminated logo on top, LEDs for every port and a power led, more light than my Christmas tree!
Also being so small means it gets dragged about by cables.
Not able to power my USB hard drive without the adapter.
Haven't had a chance to try it on a usb3 device yet

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not very stable, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product arrived on time and in good condition but I see why other buyers marked it down.
It's almost impossible to get the bracket to hang vertically from the bracket with the weight of a TV on it.
It seems there's too much slack in the junction between the bracket and the column and I haven't been able to tighten the nut and bolt up tight enough to make it stay in one place.
I was also disappointed to find that the central column in the bottom section was too narrow to slide a VGA plug down forcing me to run the cable down the outside of the tube so not as neat as I'd hoped.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great internet streamer, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works just fine, much more responsive than my BT Vision box.
Disappointed that it doesn't yet have 4oD and demand 5 when the Now TV box has them.
I'd have stuck with Now TV if it had Netflix.

Only niggle is that it doesn't switch the HDMI port on my TV, I didn't think HDMI did that until I plugged in a Raspberry Pi and saw it switch the port

4.0 out of 5 stars great satnav, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace my ageing Nuvi 710, I'm very impressed.
The screen is good, easy to see.
The audio is good but just a little distortion on the voice and sounds from time to time.
Reliable connection to my phone but disappointed with the sound quality in call, picks up too much noise from my vehicle.
Navigation seems good, took a bit of tweaking to stop it driving me down slip roads at junctions only to rejoin the main road immediately.
Audio when playing audiobooks is good but I'd like the pause when playing directions to be sharper, or even wind back a second or two so you don't miss words.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent product, 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered on Christmas eve, delivered on 27th, great.

Unit works perfectly as a home for my Logitech Media Server, easy to set up and tucks away in a cupboard out of sight.
The clear box is a good fit with easy access to all the ports.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better, 19 Oct 2013
This wireless charger does work but it has a couple of issues which make it annoying to use.
The charging surface is smooth plastic and my Nexus 4 slides about on it.
Once the phone moves away from the optimal charging point the next annoyance reveals itself, the loud beep as the charger detects the phone then loses it again. The beep makes it difficult to use in a bedroom.
Then the status light is far too bright for a dark bedroom.
I've sorted the light with a bit of tape but haven't found a way to keep the phone from sliding around on the surface, maybe some bluetac but a rubber surface would be better.
The charger does charge the phone OK and stops charging when the battery is full but doesn't top up the phone after that so you find the phone already discharging in the morning.
Finally the charger interferes with my DAB radio, if its on I can't use the radio.
