SODIAL(TM) USB to 5.5mm / 2.1mm 5V DC Barrel Jack Power Cable
SODIAL(TM) USB to 5.5mm / 2.1mm 5V DC Barrel Jack Power Cable
Offered by PGTA
Price: £2.91

5.0 out of 5 stars My mistake but cable is fine, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not entirely sure what this is supposed to fit since it fits neither of the 5v devices I wanted to power, but I suppose that's my fault for not measuring the socket size.

The cable is of average quality and has strong connectors.

I would recommend it, providing you measure the sizes of the DC sockets on your devices first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic., 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Hoya Pro-1 series works just as well as their standard series, but the filters are thinner. This is useful if you're using a lens prone to vignetting.

The filter attaches to my lenses perfectly and rotates with a very fluid motion. There is no discernible deterioration in image quality, though "pros" would argue that any glass in front of the front element is detrimental to the image.

It adds great contrast and deep blue skies to outdoor images, as well as the useful removal of reflections on glass and water.

Just remember to take it off when you don't need it since you lose a couple of stops of light!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just works., 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's not a great deal to be said about this product. It works, with no audible deterioration in sound quality. It's not a "studio grade" product, but then such a context would not require the use of such a product.

Build quality is decent too, but if you're plugging and unplugging on a daily basis you might want to buy a few to save headaches later on. At this price I can't deduct a star because I would have happily paid more for this function!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not without a learning curve., 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The intervalometer is fairly well made, but pretty brittle and fragile. You can see where the corners have been cut to bring the price this much below that of the official Nikon product, but amateurs like us can't afford to spend mega-bucks on accessories.

It works great, just like the Nikon accessory, however the instructions, though detailed, are a little hard to follow and it took me several uses before I was comfortable with it.

Would definitely recommend this but be careful with it and have patience to learn how to operate it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes a noise but a little flaky., 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kitchen Timer Red Pepper (Misc.)
In summary, it's fine for the price. Bought for my mother as a present for her new red kitchen. She says she loves it, but then any mother would.

From my experience with it, it does make a noise but it's very fragile. Don't overturn it and don't expect it to make much noise if turned to less than the 15 minute mark.

Would recommend as a form-over-function novelty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These pens are just like the usual Stick 430s but have a finer tip. They write well although as other reviews have noted can get a bit 'splodgy' if you neglect them for a while.

As a leftie I often struggle with mainstream brand pens, but I swear by these - they really help my handwriting and help to reduce the painful blisters I get when writing a lot.

Very impressed for the price.

These really send me back to when I used to go to my local UCI cinema years ago, their Pick 'N' Mix overpriced yet an obligatory addon to the latest Harry Potter movie.

They taste just like I remember!


Belkin Cat6 Snagless UTP Patch Cable (Red) 1m

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleasing., 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems a sturdy cable when compared to cheap no-name alternatives. Rubber around crimp connector feels pretty robust. I bought this and some other colours to replace grey Cat5e cables as I wanted my cables colour co-ordinated according to their use (call me OCD but it's really useful when you have cables everywhere)

Obviously no speed difference over the older Cat5e, since it was already certified for 1Gbps speeds, but the prices were around the same and it's nice to know I'm ready for when 10Gbps (Cat6 rating) becomes more commonplace. If you have the older Cat5 (100Mbps) cables then certainly upgrade to at least Cat5e as most newer devices and switches have Gigabit ports these days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the official remote is worth it...perhaps not., 7 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This imitation ML-L3 remote triggers the shutter on my D90...most of the time. Sometimes it can be a little hit-and-miss, but usually it works fine. Should you purchase the official Nikon remote at 10 times the price? If you're going to use it daily, yes. For infrequent use, it's a great cheap alternative. You certainly can't argue with a camera remote that costs less than a large bar of Dairy Milk, can you?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 1 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does the job. Not audiophile quality, but then if you'd spent thousands on audio equipment you probably wouldn't be looking at cables in this price bracket. You can't go wrong using this on your hifi.
