4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, but cheaply made., 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm using this for Elite: Dangerous and Assetto Corsa and can say it's invaluable! However the product used let down by the very cheap production and quality of the Pro Clip. This thing could easily break if you're not extremely careful with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected!, 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well constructed, looks nice, but most importantly this hub performs excellently!

I have two external hard drives that I used to sync by connecting them directly to the PC. When connected in this way, I was getting a pal throughput of roughly 195MB per second. I was expecting that when these drives were connected to the hub to not get the same throughput because of sharing the same USB connection on the PC. However, the sync ran at the same speed add before.

Then I connected a USB 2 flash drive to the hub and copied some files to it at the same time the other two drives were syncing. I expected the sync to drop to USB 2 speeds, but it kept going at the same rate!

Very happy with this hub indeed - highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast!, 1 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This thing flies! Actually, it's faster than my external USB 3 hard drives!

To get the best speed out of the device, you need to be copying to/from another fast drive. i.e. copying speeds are faster when copying to/from an SSD than an internal hard drive. Yes, this thing is faster than my internal WD2002FAEX-00MJRA0 when copying large files!

Small file performance is not so great though. i.e. copying many smaller files greatly reduces throughput of the device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb sound from such a small speaker!, 1 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound from these speakers really is very good for something this size IMO! The build quality is very good and it feels like a very high quality product.

The addition of the power indicator LEDs, base speaker and the charging port makes this product far superior to it's smaller 'Flip' brother. Well worth the additional cost!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent case!, 1 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent case! Protects that back and sides of the phone perfectly, and lifts the screen away from a surface if placed face down (which I do to stop things falling onto the screen). If placed on its back, there is a ridge around the camera cutout that lifts the lens of the camera off of the surface it's placed on - preventing scratches.

Feels really nice and sturdy and has a really nice touch to it and is a great fit.

The cut outs for the volume and power buttons make it a lot easier to find the buttons when fumbling around.

The only slight downside is that the cover over the USB connector on the phone is now a bit more difficult to open with the case in place. But this is not worth losing a star over.

Great case!

2.0 out of 5 stars Only one port working at USB 3.0 speed, 19 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Card only gives me one port running at USB 3.0 speed, while the other 3 run at USB 2 speed. If I connect a USB 3.0 drive to any of the 3 slower ports and copy a large amount of content, the transfer starts at USB 3.0 speed, but then very quickly slows down to USB 2 speeds.

I've tried updating the firmware and the drivers without any luck.

I've only given the product 2 starts instead of 1 because one of the ports does actually work as advertised. So one star for the thing not actually blowing up, and a further star for each of the 4 ports that works as expected.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ripoff!, 20 Jan. 2013
Simply a huge ripoff. Thinking like everyone else that this contained his actual stand up gig, sat down to watch. After about 10 minutes, I started to think I'd selected the wrong option from the menu, but no. It continued in much the same vein, showing clips of interviews and TV slots and parts of the gig where Peter was interacting with the crowd as they arrived.

In the interim skipped forward research in the hope that the gig would eventually start, but it didn't. What a complete ripoff!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just perfect!, 25 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a a case that didn't get in the way and that provided some sort of protection to the back of the S3. I also wanted a case that gave more grip than the standard S3 case (which is very slippery). After reading reviews of this case here, I ordered, but really didn't expect much.

However, the case fits perfectly, has a good feel to it and provides that extra protection I was looking for the back of the phone. There is also some protection for the screen as the case sits about 1-2mm above its surface. This means that when the phone is face down, the screen is further away from the surface it is on. This doesn't help if something sits against the screen directly (like keys in your pocket), but it's additional protection none the less.

Great case and excellent value for money. Would recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fast and solid!, 2 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is exactly what you expect from SanDisk - very solid packaging, and extremely fast!

Although the packaging showed "90MB/s - UDMA6", the actual card was showing "90MB/s - UDMA7" on the label! Has anyone else had this?

In usage, the card is amazingly quick. I have a Canon 5D MK III which is capable of 18 fps while shooting RAW. However, this is only possible with UDMA7 CF cards (according to the manual). I couldn't afford a UDMA7 card as they are much more expensive, but when I tried burst continuous mode with this card I got roughly 20 shots before the camera slowed. Things obviously depend on content of the shot etc, but I really wasn't expecting anything this good! I also have a 95MB/s SD card (also SanDisk) which manages about 12-14 fps before slowing down. So this CF card is definitely faster than that.

I can't really comment on the durability and reliability of the card as it is new. However, judging by my other SanDisk cards, it will be a very good card and stay with me for years to come without letting me down.
