5.0 out of 5 stars Fast enough drive for upgrades, 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Installed on my Dell Vostro 1700, on 9th Nov 2014. Chose a 256Gb drive because of the slightly improved performance over the smaller drive, and because the smaller drive might have been a squeeze to fit on the data that I have. The whole installation was simple, the resultant machine performance is so far excellent. Didn't need to use the 2mm spacer because the Dell drive-bay has a metal carrier to which the drive is fixed before the sub-assembly is inserted into the laptop.

Due to the demise of XP, and the awful performance of Vista Home Premium, I have upgraded to Windows 7 Pro. I decided to use a new disk for the software upgrade because I read that W7 wipes-out the disk contents during a new installation, and therefore I still have the Vista disk as insurance. So saying I migrated all the data from Vista to W7 with no problem, used the Easy Transfer utility to put data on an external drive, and then copied it into W7 after the installation was complete. Installation of W7 was also simple; put in the DVD, answer the usual questions and was surprised to find everything complete when I got back from making a coffee. With W7 I should be able to run TRIM commands to keep everything running nicely.

I now have 3 machines fitted with different SSDs. This Crucial MX100 drive was bought after some research online, and deciding whether I thought it was worth the risk. I have had no problems. A week is not really a long time but everything appears to be working well.

I bought two of these to replace my old battery, which was 8 years old and not holding charge. This battery is great. Not only is it bigger capacity but it fits the camera and charger perfectly. Well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy with this product, 13 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace an original control which partly stopped working. This controller has all the same functions in almost the same place. It is working fine, had it a few months now. Definitely worth it, IMO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy to buy from here again, 13 Oct. 2014
These batteries arrived in a couple of days slightly quicker than stated. They are the genuine article, Swiss made button cells with plenty of shelf-life remaining. Some time in 2017 - which is enough. My watch is functioning nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars When ever your gorilla grip will not do...., 13 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This device helped me to recover from an embarrassing situation. I have replaced batteries in watches many times, but one watch recently refused to allow me to replace the back cover after I had changed the battery. I sought help from this case-press which surprised me by re-fitting the back cover with very little fuss. Definitely a useful piece of kit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Left a bad taste....., 12 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found, as others have, that the print cartridge was already past its 'install before' date. However it seemed to work Ok except that by the time I managed to flush the print heads and get our neglected printer working it was indicating 'low ink'! This is a shame, and reflection upon Epson I feel. The printer is producing some quite nice pictures.......

Youngest daughter wanted a skin for her Galaxy-Y and chose this. It was delivered in about a week, which is as per the stated delivery. My daughter loves it. It is a soft rubber skin with holes in all the right places, and should provide progtection if the phone is dropped.

This game is great, the kids spend hours with it. It was purchased to replace the SIMS-3 version which unfortunated used to crash regularly, this game does not. It runs reliably and is reasonably priced.

Good price/performance mix. These bulbs are normal halogen components which deliver the expected output.
