4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but tight around the gentlemanly area, 22 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great, but tight around the gentlemanly area, not for men with muscle in their legs. Just for skinny guys. I wear a 36, but on reflection i would have purchased a 38. Look good though, padding is good. Solid all rounder.

4.0 out of 5 stars does what it says on the tin, but Italian men clearly have skinny upper legs (A bit tight around your man parts!), 22 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All very good, waterproof wise. I purchased XL, I'm a 36 waist, these are fine around the waist, go over my boots and are a good length in the leg. However, if you have any kind of muscle in your thigh (I cycle and play rugby) then you might find these tight around your gentleman's area. If you want to ware then as Over-Trousers, then i would get a size bigger.

3.0 out of 5 stars its ok, but i would by second hand given the choice, worth a go but not the full RRP., 8 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a whole game, its about 60% of a game. Not really a Rainbow game either, to easy, life and enemy life are too long, it can take 6-10 rounds to kill, that's not rainbow, thats COD. MP is good, but getting into a game can take longer than playing. On the whole, dont bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars leather is nice, build is great, 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
leather is nice, build is great, its not too bulky on the phone, access to all the ports and camera and buttons is good. only thing is there is no auto lock when shutting the cover, but i dont know if the phone supports it or not anyway. Good all round protection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best budget NHDD case, 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can see everyone moaned about this, however i followed the steps exactly and found that it took me 40mins from opening the box to being able to stream to my phone.

The manual sucks, but the CD guide works quite well and it takes you through set-up really fast and with simple step by step instructions.

Things that i think most people will get caught out on:

Setting up DDNS - Dynamic DNS is what allows you to access the device over the net (the cloud function if you like) Dlink give you a free DDNS account with the product. I used this, only i need to know this so i am not fussed that it ends DNS.
You will need your WAN IP (this is the IP that your router has on the internet, it changes now and then, which is why we set up the DDNS, which will auto change in step) you can google on how to find this IP

FTP Set-up
It took me about 5 mins to work out where i was going wrong here, Dlink failed to highlight that you need to have a use associated on the device. So i went to user accounts and made an admin account that had FTP read and write access. (there is a handy vid on youtube i since found and i use FileZilla to access it from my work PC)

download the Apps for device access, i have the ipad one, which works fine and i have the Android one, which although works perfectly on 3g for a stream, has a tendency to not auto play the next track/file.

Transfer speeds are fine, sent 120gb over 54g Wifi in 6 hours, on my buffalo NAS this took 22 hours.
I am using some old HDDS, 1x1TB and 1x500gb, both are over 6 years old and work fine. (BE ADVISED - the drive has its own file structure and as a result will format any HDD you put into the device, if you need to keep files, i put one in at a time and moved filed from one to the other.

File movement, normally moving files around partitions on the same volume is slow as windows or Mac OS pull the file to the local drive and then push it back to the other partition, however using the Web GUI you can move files internally, which of course is then just an edit to the TOC of the drive and takes seconds rather than physically moving the media back and fourth.

GUI is fast, smart and easy to use, if you cant use it then just turn off the PC and go play with some Duplo as this is not for you.
I have since got a second one of these for my 72 year old Gran to use as a Photo and video back up. She loves it and the fact that she can access her images to show friends (at the blue rinse club) she used the GUI just fine and does not struggle with it, this is the same woman who tried to put a DVD in the VHS player.. but still..

If anyone gets stuck they are more than welcome to come and ask me for help here..

On a budget.. Buy this!

This review is from: Loud Like Love (MP3 Download)
Same as ever, great tunes, however it has some odd openings to some tracks that i guess would be fine if you are under 14, if not, its kind of funny!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Case, ok mount, wont fit any of my bikes.. however..., 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So the case is great, has padding to support the phone, the water tight zip works (tried this in a sink of water, not a drop)
I have the HTC One X which is quite a large phone and it fits even within its rubber normal case. You can also use the touch screen through this case.

The mount on the other hand is not big enough to fit any bikes. the standard handle bar is 31.8mm, it will not go around this, however, i took the little screw out, put it in the biggest setting i could then ran a few Zip ties around the mount and handle bar, this worked fine. As the case is quick release you can just leave the mount on the bike, i doubt it will get pinched. It also stays in place perfectly in high winds and at speed (30-35kph) Phone never moved once.

I can be worth this for the case over others, but it is kind of annoying that it wont go around anything. ( i have 3 bikes and it wont fit any of them) so 3 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars missing the whole bottom scale, 9 Oct. 2013
Basic, cheap and pretty rubbish, tin cans have more bass and lower levels, these are worse than yoghurt pots on string. I am not one of these people that want all base and no top but i would like to be able to hear a kick drum for example.. but they struggle no end, also the noise leak is a joke if you have anything that does have top (like trumpets etc..)
