5.0 out of 5 stars Quality feel and great function., 8 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has a really quality feel to it, happy to heft it in my hand and feels better than the actual TV remote. Keyboard is good with small keys but just the essentials, once you realise that holding down the Shift key gets access to the numbers then it is easier. My daughter loves the little keyboard and I'm happy to use it for the small amount of typing needed on a TV remote.
Keys are ideal for my Kodi HTPC setup and make sense. Interesting to find the 'remote mouse' function and use it as a pointer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the ticket for streaming TV around a house., 8 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really enjoyed setting this up and using it as a part of my home theatre build. Easy to install - just plug in the bits, then open a web browser to their address of myhdhomerun.com and click on the links in the corner to do a first run tune. Download the client again at that link and install it locally, and away you go. I cannot appreciate enough the simplicity of a team who design these things for the average home user, no fiddly bits of configuration and the web address will work on a mobile phone browser as well as a tablet or laptop.
Now in the process of building it all into a three-PC HTPC system (actually 3 SBC using Raspberry Pi and Odroid boxes) and showing it off to the wife and son for their viewing pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is well written and nothing so far jars the enjoyment of listening as the action unfolds, 5 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am really enjoying this book. The central character is building into a likeable hero (brought up on the wrong side of the tracks, succeeds through raw talent, doesn't want to challenge the system) and the backstory of the worlds is coming together. Something about the human aspect to this story appeals without becoming mawkish. Technology is there but doesn't override the story and individuals such as the soldiers and captain of the spaceship are not simple caricatures, but give nuanced responses showing more of a depth of personality. It is well written and nothing so far jars the enjoyment of listening as the action unfolds.
I recommend for a pleasurable book without excessive surprises or effort in reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars The extendable feet are good, vertical pole has shock cord to keep the ..., 9 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This lightweight vertical banner holder is really worthwhile. The long rear pole attaches firmly and holds the banner well if it is seated properly into the rear holder, although I'd not trust this anywhere except indoors since it isn't designed for wind. The extendable feet are good, vertical pole has shock cord to keep the segments together, and the carry bag is reasonable. Take heed of the instructions and don't test pulling out the end pin before attaching your banner as the internal spring will swallow the leader and peelable attachment strip into the mechanism. The top rail holder eases apart *from the top* (where the circular hole runs along) and then the banner can slip into the rail, which is then pressed back and end clips attached. It even has a clip to keep the end pin under the main body when not in use.

I think it would be more suited for intermittent use rather than by a conference or exhibition regular due to its lightweight design.

Forget hand-held fans, this little desk fan is quiet, adjustable, and a USB hub as well. The airflow is just right for a desk and the whole arrangement makes this one of my best, cheap purchases recently. My family love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing box, 23 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this now for a year and have to admit that it has saved me lots of money and been a true marvel of technology.
I'm pretty comfortable dealing with all types of technology and gadgets, yet even for me this took a lot of fiddling and tweaking until I got where I want. At the moment I have dispensed with all line rentals, TV packages and simply have one charge for my cable connection - all my communications go through this box including landline (physical local home telephone number), television and of course Internet communications such as web and email. I ported my landline geographic number to a VOIP provider and pay pittance per year for national and international calls, stream TV and phone calls including mobile through it. I connect remotely into home using VPN (and can call home for free from hotel rooms using VOIP) and get to share videos and photos through its media server. All for one monthly charge for the cable connection - broadband only.
It took looking around on forums to get it working well. Firstly it didn't work too well with my cable provider, then some parameters were sensitive and I'd set them too low so my 50Mb cable connection looked more like 5Mb, then the physical landline port didn't 'stick' with the VOIP gateway. However once sorted I sit back and add service after service to this including energy monitoring, blocking unwanted telephone numbers, answering machine, web traffic control and so on. This really is an amazing box but I'd have to suggest that it isn't everyone's cup of tea especially if your needs are simple or you don't have the time to invest in all the options which this can provide.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't fit people with the wrong ears!, 16 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These appear to fit people with big ears only - deep basin and high tops so that the clip can get purchase on the back of the ear. If you don't have a high ear (think Vulcan Spock type person) then there is danger of them rotating out of the ear basin and ... falling off. Sigh. One of our family, ermm, does have such ears but the younger members don't so either theirs are floppy like rabbits or I'm from another planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably good, 26 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We've tried all sorts of salt mills, most of them have that central pillar that turns a bottom grinder and salt of all types either clogs it up, or won't come through due to grain size. This mill seems to work just fine with both rock / crystal salt, as well as with the flaked culinary type. It comes through in fine clumps and the result is a treat! Yes cost is high but the results are worth it - by the way this is a manual grinder so no batteries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful way to hold satnav, 9 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great way to hold a satnav, the base sticks like glue to the dash - as long as it is properly cleaned, and doesn't move. While the post and clamp arrangement is a bit of a fiddle to put together once they are there you can substitute other mounting plates from the range to fit different models of satnav. A simple, easy idea that really works.
