5.0 out of 5 stars Aircraft headphone adaptor, 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't actually used this yet but I've checked that the internal connections are OK which is all this thing does so the only items left are price and delivery. Price was excellent and delivery was fast. Looking forward to a flight using comfortable headphones (Why don't aircraft have a normal 3.5mm socket ? - are the airlines afraid people will actually steal their rubbish headphones !)

5.0 out of 5 stars Front Bike Standlight, 11 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good commuting front dynamo bike light. A decent forward throw of light when moving. The standlight dims a little when stationary but still very bright. The capacitor charges up after only 1-2 seconds so the standlight works almost immediately.

The stainless steel bracket was a bit wonky and needed a bit of judicial bending to get the light pointing in the right direction !

For my money one of the best front dynamo bike lights available

3.0 out of 5 stars Action Can 3 HD, 11 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First the downside. I should have read the previous reviews.
Using for a 40 minute bike commute to work
But it only records for 20 minutes before shutting down and losing all the recorded video with no warning.
The blue 'recording' LED is almost impossible to see - Often I've lost videos because I couldn't see whether the blue LED was steady or blinking..
The red 'ON' LED is somewhat better but still much too dim.
I suppose these are power saving measures - the battery can't be too big in a unit of this size & weight but as there is a 2 hour (?) recording time why shut down after 20 minutes ?

And the upside:
Small, light, robust aluminium housing, connects as a removable disk without problem, date & time easy to set, excellent quality video when it's light (and I had no expectation of anything at night time), seems to be waterproof (viz recent weather in the UK !)

Didn't use the provided mounting but snapped OK into an old LED light bracket

And the conclusion:
I've got used to switching the thing off and of every 15 minutes or so without bothering with the LED's
After you've crossed that hurdle it's basically a very, very good camera. If the 20 minute limit was removed and the LED's were a bit more conspicuous it would be perfect !

Eric Laithwaite was one of the finest Electrical Engineers that Britain produced in the 20th Century - and this is his best book. Possibly quite basic (not so much maths - thank goodness) but gives incredible insight.

I particularly always enjoy his comment about Mu0 - It sums up everything about what we DON'T know about electromagnetism (just why does a vacuum 'conduct' a magnetic field ?)

With over 30 years working in electrical machine research and development under my belt I still refer to this book and find something new to inspire.

This wasn't expensive but still worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have a couple of these at work for conference room use so I knew beforehand what they're like, i.e. perfectly OK ! Raised bits on F and J keys a little bit small for a novice touch-typer like me. Keyboard a little bit 'rattley' if trying to type fast but functionally OK.
No keyboard 'Off' switch but batteries last a long time (e.g. nearly a year on the ones at work with so sign of any loss of communication). Interesting to see how long the mouse batteries last as I often forget to turn it off - works perfectly well with rechargeable NiMh so not an issue.
Overall great value for money - I can't think how I managed before with wires all over the place !
