1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable seller., 16 Nov. 2014
This DVD/CD writer-reader arrived without invoice from this seller and without the emblem on its case (that is displayed in the image on their webpage on Amazon).

The unit’s cable plugs are sufficiently oversized to jam in the USB sockets of my laptop and desktop, and dislodged the sockets of a USB adapter.

The unit would not work on my laptop’s Windows 7; neither would it work on my desktop’s Windows 2000 or XP.

The unit seized up both the operation systems on my desktop.

I bought a DVD hard case especially for the unit in anticipation of making normal use of this unit.

The unit I received from this seller is completely rubbish, having wasted over 10 hours of my life, which consists of the time spent searching for a decent unit on Amazon, trying to get this unit to work on my computers, the time that will be spent trying to sort out this damned nonsense with the seller, and as well as seeking another unit from elsewhere.

I believe they are sourcing their cheap useless units from various suppliers, which is why other reviewers say this rubbish works. This unreliable seller should refund me, as well as compensate me for wasting my time; time is money, which is the same currency this seller measures its rate of income.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the right thing., 1 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has a good quality feel about it, and definitely looks like the right battery for the laptop for which I ordered it, showing the required specifications on it. It also works well, storing enough hours of energy needed by me (over 2 hrs of unintensive use)

1.0 out of 5 stars Dumb design. Duh, 16 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case is too small to encase the Toshiba Stor.E Basics 500GB as well as the indispensable cable that comes with the drive. The case has no space for the cable, so it is unsuitable for the drive for which it is advertised.

What use is a case that requires one to carry the drive's cable separately. Dumb design. Duh!

What's also amazing is that the other reviewers don't seem to mind. What do they do with their drives' cables? Carry them up their snozzles? Dumb reviews too. Duh!

To offset the stupid 5-star reviews, I give it 1 star only. Say what you like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for security camera brackets., 3 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect for vertically slatted wooden walls with planks 25mm thick. One can fix the bracket to an outer plank without damaging the wood, then fix a security camera to the bracket. The center of the planks can be protected from the inner bracket edges with a strip of sturdy plastic or wood 2 - 3 mm thick. This method is particularly useful in putting up security cameras on walls that one's landlord does not want damaged. (The rentier class coudn't care about tenant security: something I've experienced in over 3 decades of being a tenant to various landlords.)

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap generic junk., 3 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought 2 x Laptop Mini Slim 2.4G USB Wireless Optical Mice from FamilyMail. Did not work from outset: won't switch on when new batteries are inserted - probably because on/off switches are missing. Cheap generic junk. Waste of time & money.

1x Tools - Spark Plug Draper Long Reach Box Spanner (Hex 16mm A/F)

5.0 out of 5 stars A proper 16mm hex spanner for spark plugs., 30 Sept. 2014
This is a hex 16mm A/F long reach spanner suitable for a vehicle such as a Suzuki Wagon R+ having difficult to reach spark plugs needing this size spanner.

Ignore the cryptic "Size 28mm x 368mm" description under Product Details on the same web page. The "368mm" could be its length, but the "28mm" is a mystery; maybe another customer can explain.

What does not seem to be mentioned in the web page description is that this spanner has an essential feature that is a rubber grommet insert for gripping the tops of the spark plugs. Without this feature, the spanner will obviously not be able to lift the spark plugs out of the deep wells.

There are other hex tube spanners advertised as spark plug spanners on Amazon, yet do not have this rubber insert. This tool has it, as I said.

3.0 out of 5 stars This item has been compared with tube spanners better designed for the same purpose, 25 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a cheaply made product, which could be given 4 stars -

(a) were it stamped with a dimension size on each side. (In a tool box with other tube spanners of same manufacture, how does one know which one to choose if they have no sizes stamped on them?)

(b) if it had a rubber grommet in each end to grip the ends of spark plugs (for which this spanner was advertised). I don't care if it is inexpensive; if it is advertised for spark plug removal, it needs those grommets!

This item has been compared with tube spanners better designed for the same purpose.
