4.0 out of 5 stars Good value protection for a portable hard drive, 26 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this case to house a Buffalo Ministation 500GB USB 2.0 Slimline Portable External Hard Drive for which it is a perfect fit and after a few accidental drops onto a tiled floor I can say it protects the hard drive well.

The case unzips to reveal an elasticated band on one side to secure the drive in place and on the other side is a mesh pocket to hold the USB cable and a few other thin items such as a flashdrive or SD or Compact Flash memory card.

Good value purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps dog secure, 14 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great product. Easy to put onto dog and a perfect fit for our Border Terrier. Push the clip into the rear seat centre seatbelt clasp and the dog is well secured. He has a bit of movement but is secure in the event of having to brake suddenly.

It can also be used as a walking harness and is very handy for a quick walk after the car journey. However for our dog the strap the the seatbelt clip is attached to is just a bit too long and can get caught round our dog's tail or under one of his legs so we don't use it for long walks.

Otherwise very pleased and well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy storage., 14 Mar 2011

What is there to say about a portable hard drive?

It is portable and so far works well.

Windows 7 64 bit detected it immediately it was connected so I haven't run the accompanying software.

Looks very stylish and understated with the blue light on the front.

The supplied USB cable could be a bit longer hence the 4 stars instead of 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy, good quality, little unit, 14 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Zoom H1 is remarkably compact. The recording quality from the internal mics and using the line input is very good indeed. I suspect that the mics are not quite as good as those in the H2 or H4 but so far I have no complaints re the quality of the recording produced. Build quality is reasonable but not as good as the other Zooom units and fitting the Micro SD card and the batteries needed a bit more care than I felt appropriate.

I really like the controls being buttons and switches instead of it being menu driven like the H2 and H4. Just don't try to adjust anything whilst recording - the unit is very very susceptable to handling noise. It is almost impossible to get a noise free hand held recording. However when used with the supplied mic stand adapter or screwed onto a tripod and it does the job admirably well. It is a great wee unit.

One essential additional purchase will be a good wind shield for outdoor use. The supplied one is just about ok for indoor use but no use at all outside in anything greater that a light breeze.

So far the supplied tripod has survived OK but it does seem a bit fragile.

5.0 out of 5 stars It just works!, 6 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plugged them in, connected them up as per instructions, switched them on and they work. An immediate extension to my home network. Great for a non techie. Utility program for the PC shows quite a slow connection but that might be due to the spider deterent plugged in next to one of the adapters. Might be faster if I unplugged that but haven't had time to try it yet. The Adapters are fast enough for smooth BBC I-Player on the Sony internet enabled Home Cinema system which is all I wanted.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the original, 6 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems to fit my Sony compact camera as well as the original (and much more expensive) Sony one. Even shows a time remaining indication on the camera screen (which the original doesn't). Don't know yet about charge duration but early indications a very positive. All in all seems very good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better value than the Sony., 14 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a bit apprehensive about buying one of these as I had heard horror stories about them over heating or getting stuck in the camera but I needn't have worried (so far anyway).

It looks and performs as good as or better than the original Sony battery which is considerably more expensive.

Even gives a time remaining estimate which the Sony battery doesn't!

Quick delivery and great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple but effective., 14 Jan 2011

Slides nicely into the hotshoe of my Fuji bridge camera (so not just Nikon and Canon) and helps ensure the camera is level.

Cheap and cheerful and it works!

What more is there to say.


Lowepro Peak 20 Digital Camera Pouch - Black
Lowepro Peak 20 Digital Camera Pouch - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect, 14 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great little case. Perfect size for my Sony H55 camera plus spare battery and memory card and all well padded and protected.

Pity the front pocket doesn't have its own cover or fastening. It is covered by the main flap when the case is closed but not when you want to take out or put away the camera in the back zip-up compartment. I'm a bit concerned that something could fall out while I'm removing or inserting the camera. Maybe I'm just being paranoid!!

Seems to be up to Lowepro's usual quality and a great bargain at the price.
