5.0 out of 5 stars However these are all going string providing a good light but little start up dimming, 13 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After 2 years, all 12 of them are still going strong in our kitchen. I had lost faith in purchasing the standard GU10's (made by decent manufacturer) and properyly fitting without touching the glass, some of them still lasted less than 12 months. However these are all going string providing a good light but little start up dimming. if any.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent purchase, good speed., 13 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to replace a set of TP-Link powerlines that were useless (slow speed, useless customer service). The speed with these Netgear powerlines is excellent. Easy to set up. The 3 green lights on the front system to indicate state of connection is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought a Sony W Series television to replace one in ..., 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought a Sony W Series television to replace one in the kitchen on a VESA wall mount. As it is a new(ish) house with plasterboard walls, I didn't fancy trying to put the new Sony 32" TV up and also didn't want to pay for the Sony overpriced converter. Found this, order and delivered very quickly. TV went up a treat on the existing bracket.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother., 28 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't bother. I could set it up and it looked to be working ok. Initially I could connect to the internet but after a while, laptops and iphones would connect to this rather than the main router and would not connect to the internet. Only way to get back on the internet is to switch this off and use items closer to main router. Won't buy TP-Link products again as I had a pair of their powerline adaptors as well and it was impossible to get any meaningful speeds through them despite a new build house with one circuit, no extensions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worked for 2 weeks and then fell off., 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On arrival, I immediately put it on the windscreen and it was great. Then after a couple of weeks the magnetism was not strong enough. Ok on its own (without paper disc in) but with disc in, the bottom half of circle would not stick together. Shame, a nice product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent detail but 2 already broken after 3 weeks,, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While not the quickest delivery in the world, when they arrived, they looked fantastic and my sons were delighted (3 each).

Unfortunately 3 weeks on and 2 of them have already broken (each son broke one). The tops have broken off from both.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only lasted 15 minutes.....Avoid, 15 Aug. 2013

Obviously atttracted by the price and only read what Amazon considers most 'helpful' reviews. Read all the reviews and you will see that lots of people have had the same problem.

It will not power a coolbox.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well made and nice looking but...., 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a Canon Ixus 125 fits quite loosely in it. I bought this at the same time as a Canon Ixus 125 but the camera is loose in the case compared with other Ixus cases I have bought for previous models.

Apart from that, excellent quality.
