4.0 out of 5 stars THE RISE OF SSD, 11 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THE RISE OF SSD. I have bought a number of different capacity SSD drives from Crucial and fitted these to both desktop and laptop computers. So far they have all been a sucess. All of my computers are however NOT of MAC type and so the sucess of my fitting may not apply to them. So far all have worked well and speeded many programmes and functions. Using USB3 on one in a mobile caddy has speeded up transfer from other computers. These are fitted to everything from a computer with a 6 core AMD processor to a single core ancient compaq.... no problems. May buy more in the future if required.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST VIDEO CAPTURE DONGLE OF IT`S TYPE., 26 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Over many years i have used these and earlier versions of the climax digital video capture dongle. they are getting long in the tooth these days as composite and S-video with a 576 X 720 picture format is hardly widescreen HD !!!!!! I have compared these dongles with many others when on a quest to find one giving a better quality result. To no avail.... I have always reverted to the Climax didital version with the assocaited software. Beware.... a number of other dongles use software either poached from Climax or copied from a similar source and these will interfere withthe old Climax software. The cables and sockets are rather fragile for long term continious use and so I usually use them for a while and then give them a more sedentary roles to live out their old age..... hahahaha.....

1.0 out of 5 stars BETTER TO USE AN ON BOARD CARD, 26 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately for me this was of little use as it did not interface with my existing computers and operate correctly. Access and recording speed were not fast enough. This must use a different USB 3 version to the one my computers use and one which does not permit the speeds I required. I use an on board card instead now which seems to deal with the situation. May be fine with other systems but, I sent it back!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD SOFTWARE AND BETTER THAN EARLIER VERSIONS, 26 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nero 2014 Platinum (PC) (CD-ROM)
This software works well and is better than some of the earlier versiond. However some of the extra facilities can be a bit intrusive on other software and it is best to load carefully which options you intend to use. It has all usual Nero facilities but uses a rather slow method of copying multiple DVD`s or CD`s. I have it loaded on a number of computers and it has never locked up or crashed yet and interfaces well with the PC scenario.

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY A GOOD CARD COPIES ARE NOT WORTH IT, 26 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These cards are very good and are suitable for fast access as required by video storage. I have had no problems with this card at all in a number of different Sony video camcorders and they seem reliable and quick. oNLY PROBLEM IS THAT THESE ARE NOT THE CHEAPEST. tHIS IS NOT SO GOOD AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE BUT, AFTERWARDS WHEN IN A RUSH AND UNDER PRESSURE THEY ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY!!

3.0 out of 5 stars LAPTOP CHARGERS.... THE MINEFIELD, 26 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This charger worked well under circumstances where low or medium power demands were required. I fitted an SSD drive as I needed fast disc access speeds and processing for some video software I was using. This went beyond the 65W available from the charger and if used for any length of time under these circumstances it became very hot. Unfortunately most similar technology is pushed to and beyond the limit these days

1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE THESE BULBS CAN EXPLODE, 21 Jun. 2014
I bought 4 of these bulbs and after about a week of use one exploded and showered us with glass. Very dangerous. The other three did not explode and we removed them and reverted to the original tungsten bulbs. Nothing was wrong with any fittings wiring or switches . I contacted the seller who showed little interes. A refund was promised but this has never naterialised. I am all in favour of using LED ,ow consumtion bulbs but will search for an item not using a glass envelope before trying them again. These can only be described as a dead loss.
