5.0 out of 5 stars It's a cartridge., 8 July 2014

It's a cartridge for a parker pen. not much more to be said really. It works OK and is much cheaper than the original. a good buy if you have a matching pen.

1.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful machine that is crippled by unusable software, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are 2 parts to talk about:
Good hardware:
The controller body is made of a 'fake' velvet textured material that does scratch easily but is nice to the touch. The buttons are sensibly laid out with no risl of accidentally triggering something you did'nt want. The shoulder buttons feel comfortable and pleasently resistive. The analogue pads are concave much like the XBox 360's and are very easy to find even in the dark due to the slight ridge on each pad. The device uses Micro USB-B like almost ll android smartphones on the market - asensible choice as you do not need to carry and extra charger. The build quality is OK but not all that great though.

Abysmal software.
Firtly, Firmware update DOES NOT WORK on any android device with android JB 4.2 & Above and you need an older ICS/Early JB device to update the firmware. The nyko playground app is just awful: both unstable and disfunctional it work only about 1/2 of the time. The left analogue stick is stupidly mapped to the DPAD keys as is the actual DPAD so the entire left analogue stick is essentally useless. Attempting to re-map the keys failed multiple times. When it did work the triggers stopped working so after some research I found out that the latest version of nyko playpad actually messes up the triggers so after downgrading the app version to 2.1 from an apk I found on http://nyko-playpad.blogspot.co.uk the device would fail to be picked up by the app. After trying this on my older (Android 4.1) Phone it worked but now my new device (Nexus 7 2013) did not actually recoginse that R1&R2 as well as L1&L2 as different buttons. the select key also stopped working.

I have sent my nyko playpad back for a refund and I highly discourage you from buying this product.
Should you do descide to buy it, I reccomend trying USB/BT Joystick Center GOLD (on play store [£4 - DEMO Available]) as in my testing that appeared to show a little spark of function.

However, having to buy a paid app just to get their controller working is shameful on NYKO. Considering apps on the play store manage to integrate DS3&4 (SONY PS3/4) and XBox's controllers into android as an input device while a native device fails so hard is a damn pity and NYKO should feel ashamed for releasing such awful software to the public.

TP-Link TL-PA211KIT AV200 Nano 200Mbps Powerline Adapter - Twin Pack

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product, 29 May 2014

I like these powerline adapters as they do greatly boost the speed of your internet connection through wires comapred to wi-fi. There is almost no difference between a router->PC connection vs Router->Powerline->PC route. The blinky lights on the front can get a tad annoying. Also, you have to make sure that you plug the powerline adapters into a socket (as in wall - mounted ones) or a NON-surge proteced extension lead. The thing does'nt work with surge protection unfortunatley. Otherwise, great and fab for a home office/study if the router is far away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Godd, but smells of horrible cheapness, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item itself is good and has held up to many moths of use and abuse with my nexus 7 tablet. There is a really weird smell coming from it for the first 2 weeks or so of the neoprene that was quite unpleasent. After a month or so the smell was almost gone.

I'd highly reccomend this sleve even if you do use another cover on a day-day basis as a back-up to protect the screen should your main case/cover rip or break.

Offered by Europe_Wholesale

5.0 out of 5 stars Multi-functional and overall fantastic, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has Calculus functions, Solving equations (up to and including cubic) and complex number functionality. Trig and most other basic things are there too like surds and. Display is fantastic in both clarity and the way it displays fractions as... real fractions. Wish they did include the reccuring decimal functionality like they do in the fx-85GT PLUS but it's nothing major just a bit of missed opportunity. I'd highly reccomend for both GCSE Maths and OCR's FSMQ Additional Mathematics (As well as A-Level Maths). The conversion functionality is good but I rareley use it (40 conversions available (20 'types' but back and forth like in->cm , cm->in)). You can also change the 'base' (do your calculations in hexadecimal for example) but this too is not really useful for me but could come in handy for some people.

Overall, good buy, a little more expensive than other calculators but totally worth it even just for the calculus functions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 29 May 2014

Works well, slightly annoying sound when the devices connect. Qi charging works well and quite fast too. The suraface area is small though so I have to balance my 7in tablet on it in an awkward way. But for phones it's perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a cable that does what a cable does., 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not much to say really, this is a cable that you should get if you want a VGA cable. It works just as you would expect (even if the screws are cheaply molded). You see the image on the TV from your PC.

Price: £6.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin., 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good thermal compound, disperses heat well and is easy to apply. The little syringe should last you about 4/5 uses if you're quite generous, possibly more if you go minimum. £1/application is a fair price to pay in my opinion. Highly recommended


DIGIFLEX High Speed 7 Port USB 2.0 HUB+UK AC Power Adapter Cable
DIGIFLEX High Speed 7 Port USB 2.0 HUB+UK AC Power Adapter Cable
Offered by Digiflex
Price: £10.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent hub, wrong plug, 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The hub itself is OK, good for all low USB power draining devices (pretty much anything you plug into the socket as well as in the computer (printers, HDs ...)) Also works OK with Mice (I tried 2) both worked well apart from my gaming mouse (ROCCAT KOVA) that did turn off randomly once or twice during my tests (easily solved by re-plugging it)

The major flaw for me was the plug that came in the US variety. Solved by buying an adapter but, why the extra fuss?

Quite expensive but good for organizing your USB wires.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a few weird experiences, 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off, I got this for an OLD Dell PC with a PCIEX16 1.1 Slot. I read about backwards compatibility of 2.0 cards and I'm proud to confirm the rumors as true.

It works well, the TV shows the image but for the first time I installed It the image wouldn't come through. At all. I restarted and the HDMI worked as expected.

Also the fan can get slightly noisy at times but only if you are actually listening for it.

Shame the CD with included drivers is Windows only.

Other than a few quirks, it works well and the image is clear. Haven't tested games yet but all the day-to-day stuff seems to work well.
