5.0 out of 5 stars Secure, 4 Dec 2014

Very simple, works well and an extra layer of security. Much better than 'under the flowerpot'.

5.0 out of 5 stars An object lesson in quiet drama., 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The current fashion for 'Norwegian Noir' has all its origins here. Long languid deep scenes where the character and drama is given time to develop. A complex story that deserves several viewings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite noisy. One failed but only a minor fault., 28 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thunderbolt drives are thin on the ground. Expensive. However I took the plunge and bought one.
I must admit it's noisy. A constant white noise and a froggy grunt as it starts.
The first one failed after 6. weeks, not a problem, it was only the big LED on the front. Amazon excellent, a speedy refund.

I bought another. (I had to transfer the data). The second is quieter. It was made in Thailand. The other in China.
It is fast. I have partitioned it. 500gb to run time machine / 2.5 tb for data (all those bitcoins!). I have another wd running time machine too in parallel.
It has rescued me twice! Highly recommend this approach.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok but the last one was OK till the battery failed, 26 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I therefore have little faith that this one will last much longer.
Shame to chuck it away as only the battery failed and would not hold the charge.
Impossible to dismantle! WHY NOT REPLACEMENT BATTERIES?

Another design to encourage global warming!

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT MATT!, 26 July 2013
Bought this to paint the beams on my house. Excellent coverage but definitely not Matt. Had to go over everything with blackboard paint.

Twice the job! Shine like satin almost gloss!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 ltr! and very swift delivery, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased 9th July - arrived 10th July.

Just compare the price! this is a 5ltr container for £10 more than the price of 1ltr of Roundup.

One secret that a farmer told me is that glyphosphate works much better in water that is free of 'lime' / "calcium".
So if you can use rainwater, the dilution can be even less than the recommended dose. Also do not store the diluted solution.

With that in mind... Use with care near the plants you love!

5.0 out of 5 stars A significant improvement on the supplied router, 10 Oct 2012
A bought this to replace the DSL 2680 router supplied by Talk Talk. To be honest this was not too bad but I do use wireless for streaming music and and radio all round the house. I chose the DGN 2200 as I have a Netgear 2000 extender so it seemed sensible to stick with the same family.

The wireless power is excellent, my signal improved from 40% to 75% in most areas.
I run a Mac a PC and Logitech Squeezeboxes and it has revolutionized the network.
One particular bonus was the USB socket on the back. This acts as a network storage point, that can be accessed from anywhere on my network.

Security is excellent, access to setup is easy via the browser based screen. It also has excellent diagnostics that were very useful when I had a fault on the line. I could quote the stats to guy on support. There is even a facility for remote access and control.

I did have a Belkin router, this was very difficult to set up and control. So I am very pleased with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, no fuss, no wind, very accurate., 12 July 2012
I just love it, this is my second kinetic watch. The first is still going strong, this was just a change of style.
Why pay more... beautifully made, excellent mechanism that has survived shocks and bangs.

NO overpriced designer bling! just a good timekeeper.
