5.0 out of 5 stars More people need to read this book!, 18 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always enjoyed wine and have a reasonable basic knowledge, but am no geek. This book has been an eye opener and has changed the way I think about wine and wine/food combinations. Consumers and professionals alike should be introduced to this extraordinary and revolutionary (by today's standards) thinking and will in hind sight seem oh so obvious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good product, if slightly short of flair, 6 Feb. 2012
A great iPad sleeve that really protects the precious thing and is comfortable to use. It's a bit short of flair and sexiness and is rather male in appearance, but hey, that's not necessarily a bad thing and what should one expect for something so amazingly priced. Much better than a lot (if not most) more expensive alternatives. Another winner by TeckNet (I also have their portable iPhone battery thingy).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great modem, 11 July 2011
Really love this thing. Once you figure out the basics it's really easy to use and is wonderfully fast. Have just used it while on a car tour through France and Italy, buying local data only SIM cards along the way. Iworked really well. The only drawback was that I had to look up the APN addresses for the SIM cards and enter this manually in the profile info. Otherwise the modem didn't know what to connect to. I didn't have that problem with a UK 3 card, where it received this automatically. Having said that, it's pretty easy to google and even easier if you remember to ask for it when you buy the local SIM. Highly recommended....

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 11 July 2011
A great little tool, this. Cleans up most things in a jiffy, to the point where I have to restrain myself not to use these all the time. Am sure there are other similarly effective products, but this one's just so easy. Truly wonder wipes...

5.0 out of 5 stars the best there is, 13 Jun. 2011
Absolutely love this mouse. It's dead easy to install (a no brainer, really) and just works instantly and without any delay. The battery lasts for ever and it sits perfectly in my big hand. I got it mainly for my netbook, which has a very small trackpad and it just transforms the experience. Have bough a second identical one for my wife, who kept stealing it for her laptop. The dongles are specific to the mouse, so they don't interfere with each other. Can't recommend it any higher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed freak!, 24 Nov. 2010
I have a really high spec desktop, with a very fast quad core processor, 6GB of RAM and many good components. But after an initial good few weeks, the system started to just hang. Websites wouldn't load and programs wouldn't open. Sometimes for 30-40 seconds. Then they would suddenly all open and load at the same time. Immensely frustrating. I eventually tracked this down to the hard disk just not being fast enough. So, I bought the 128GB Kingston SSD and after a relatively siple installation, the system is now flying. Love it!

Two tips: this specific product sells without the upgrade kit. You do need the cables to plug the drive into your motherboard and to power it. I ended up buying them separately, but I'd advise to get them as a package.

The second tip is a piece of software I used to clone my existing system from the old hard drive onto the new SSD: I used EASEUS Todo Backup and it was dead easy and worked perfectly. Afterwards just go into your BIOS and change the boot order of the hard drives.

3.0 out of 5 stars useful but not perfect, 16 Mar. 2010
While this is immensely useful to be able to use the same filter on two lens diameters, it is not as well engineered as it could be. The thread is not precision cut, like the filters themselves and raises the potential for ruining either the lens thread or the filter thread. Could be better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little accessory, 16 Mar. 2010
Bought this for emergency use while travelling or when having to rush out and realising the iPhone is almost empty. This battery does a very good job and is much better than the current one from Kensington (which costs twice as much). If the iPhone is almost empty, say 10%, the Kensington won't fully recharge it. The TeckNet version does and you still have some extra left over. That really is the key to this 5 star rating.

One little negative is the attachement which feels quite fragile when it's plugged into the iPhone. You have to handle it with care, best to leave it lying on a flat surface. If it attached flush and securely, it would be even better, but it's a great buy as it stands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, 3 Mar. 2010
I use this with my Lumix rather than the Leica and it fits fine. The quality of the leather is first class and the construction is as practical as these pouches tend to get. Love the retro feel of it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and practical, 3 Mar. 2010
A great little charger. Well built, cheap and makes you wonder why we need the big heavy chargers that the netbooks usually come with. This is much better for travelling and everyday use. Leave the main charger at home. Highly recommended.
