CyberPower VALUE 600EILCD Value Series Uninteruptible Power Supply, 360W/600VA
CyberPower VALUE 600EILCD Value Series Uninteruptible Power Supply, 360W/600VA
Price: £58.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, good display, 15 Jan. 2015
The CyberPower VALUE 600EILCD had three IEC AC power outlets. I therefore had to acquire separate Schuko-adapters in order to connect EU power plugs to it. The unit's mains power cable was an IEC extender cord and it too needed to be replaced with a spare power cord.

In my case the unit has the following connected to it and stays around 33% load capacity (~16 mins remaining time), which I find pretty good for the smallest member of the Value series:

Asus router RT-N66U + 4G LTE mobile internet USB stick
HP MicroServer N54L + two 3GB HDDs
NUC D54250WYK + 2.5" external HDD
LG 34UM95-P UltraWide 34" screen
Mouse charger and USB hub

It runs completely silent while on mains power and emits a low buzz accompanied with intermittent beeps when on battery which can be muted. The orange display provides in/out voltage, estimated remaining time, load % and battery capacity charge %. It can't be turned off but is not very bright and conspicuous.

3.0 out of 5 stars Medium quality razor, 7 Dec. 2014
I had a Feather double edge razor for travel, which I later lost and replaced with this Wilkinson Sword razor. Overall it's of similar quality although they're quite differently made.

+ Good shape. Does the job.
+ It's a very mild shave.
+ Simple and effective two-piece design.

- It's black. It makes it hard to see if it's clogged.
- No travel case. The Feather comes with one, although it's fragile.
- Quite light and plasticky. No gravity assist :).

o Cheap, both in construction and price.

I've got a slight preference on this razor over the Feather because it's simpler in construction and smaller but I miss a travelling case. My baseline is an Edwin Jagger which I use at home.

update: I've now lost this one too and this time chose an all metal model from China. For a fraction of the price on eBay. And it comes with a case too.


Buff Merino Wool Multi Functional Headwear - Black
Buff Merino Wool Multi Functional Headwear - Black
Price: £20.24

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it, 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wool is my favourite material. Although the fabric here is not of heavy weight it keeps warm on all but the coldest days. The Buff is stylish, easy to put on and extremely versatile (see for example "High UV Buff demo" on YouTube). I am very pleased with it and have four in different colours or patterns. I hardly use any other scarf since I discovered it.

3.0 out of 5 stars May short circuit the host, 16 Nov. 2014

The stick works well enough but as others have reported it may easily short circuit the host when inserted or removed. Perhaps a design flaw.

Pritt HK2340 8.4mm x 14m Permanent Roller Adhesive
Price: £4.63

5.0 out of 5 stars Very convenient, 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's easy to use with little risk of getting messy. The roller invites to be used all along papers edges. It's not necessary however as it adheres equally well to both surfaces. I found that a little patch of glue here and there in strategic places is sufficient for a positive adhesion.

Bridgedale Ski Men's Midweight Control Fit Sock - Gunmetal/Storm Blue, Size 9 - 11.5

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good fit and quality, 31 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been very happy with these. High, well fitting (my typica shoe size is 11) and warm (considering textile weight). I use very tightly fitting boots and these socks fit perfectly.

Contact with velcro hooks has some detrimental effect on some of the materials used in that it makes it puff up. It seems purely cosmetic as I haven't noticed any functional deterioration.

I use this on a large pair of Tretorn Sarek hiking boots. I never knew how easy it makes taking the boots off. Whereas before it was a struggle and fear of tearing them, it's now a breeze. Highly recommended.

Smells surprisingly pleasantly and not at all sharp as it can do in public toilets. Masks undesired odours very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars budget KVM and ZFS virtualisation foundation, 18 July 2014
I needed a low budget lab server with a resilient file system for easy snapshot management of virtual machines. As ZFS has snapshot support in the file system itself as well as many other integrity features, it was a requirement too. It was also preferable that the server had some virtualisation support in its hardware. From these constraints the choice of host OS fell on Proxmox (a distribution based on Debian Linux). It supports ZFS, KVM and has a nice web based virtualisation management framework. As this was for a lab environment the emphasis was on other things than performance. The N54L Microserver seemed suitable for this purpose and there's virtualisation support in its CPU.

In practice I use the supplied 250 GB HDD for hosting the OS and have added two 3 TB WD Red drives set in mirror configuration as well as 16 GB of Kingston KVR1333D3E9SK2 ECC RAM. The N54L Microserver works quite well in a low load setting and I'm quite happy with it.


Swivel spray kitchen tap nozzle

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware of plastic push/pull kitchen sprays, 24 May 2014
The forces required to operate these kinds of push/pull plastic spray nozzles will eventually (about 1-2 years) wear out the plastic threads on the part that attaches to the faucet spout. In other words, breakdown is aided by its design.

What's worse though is that the continuous tugging on the nozzle exerts forces on the spout where it attaches to the faucet, which may develop into a loosening gap, and that's not as cheap to replace as this part is.

Instead I suggest a kitchen spray that requires a turning motion to alter between the the spray and straight flow. For example the Neoperl Kitchen Swivel Spray or RC Mannesmann cookshower.
