5.0 out of 5 stars Seven small containers, heated., 8 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After struggling to germinate seeds, bought this and now just a matter of waiting and checking they are not drying out. Made a task I struggled with in to some thing relatively trivial.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inserts broke after 2 weeks., 25 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I can not find any info currently mentioned when I purchased was sure it claimed to be 1cm thick. it is actually 1.5cm, the leather has been padded and lined adding unnecessary bulk to the product.

The removable inserts broke off after 2 weeks use. Not bad for under £6 though.

Practical Vim: Edit Text at the Speed of Thought (Pragmatic Programmers)

5.0 out of 5 stars Step up your text editing game, 9 Dec. 2012
As a Vim user for over 10 years, I knew it was a powerful tool but I did not realise how learning a few extra commands could save me so much time. I found most tutorials on Vim to be overwhelming and getting lost quickly. Drew Neils approach to identifying needs or common problems with editing and suggesting solutions was a refreshing and readable take on it.

The time taken to read this has been paid back many fold, from less time at the desk and increased productivity.

1.0 out of 5 stars Max capacity only 6TB, 23 May 2012
Once initialised not expandable with smaller size drives. Max capacity is 6TB, Will not accept drives larger than 2TB. Cannot find way to alter raid settings Raid-X only.

I would instead buy some 3TB usb drives and a pogo plug.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mouse pad too small, 1 Oct. 2011
The area of the mouse mat is incredibly small, as I use a penguin mouse the base of the mouse almost covers the entire mouse mat. might be OK with small mice but definitely not recommended. The wrist support is only 1.5cm high, which is half the height of my previous wrist support.

1.0 out of 5 stars Netgear DG2000 waste of money, 10 Jun. 2009
Bought Netgear DGN2000 to replace a Netgear DG384G.

The DG384G was the best router I have ever used, expected more from the DGN2000 but wireless speeds are the same and the router needs restarting 10x more offten. Conneted at 130mbps over wireless N with Mac Book, but actual data transfer rates for files stay the same or slower than the DG384G.

The 384 held a stable internet connection for weeks months between restarts. the DGN2000 needs to be restarted every other day. Does not seem to handle multiple connections very well.

Summary
Expected way more form a new N router. In my opinion the DG384G performs better and costs less.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality, 5 Nov. 2007
This is a very cheap looking product. Does not have the extra grip or buttons to take Pictures with the camera rotated 90 degrees like the other battery grips. My Canon 400D would switch on and promptly tell me to replace the battery even with a fully charged battery or a brand new set of AAs.
