Loc8tor Lite
Loc8tor Lite
Offered by Maplin_Webdeals
Price: 49.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Got this for my daughter, good for pets too!, 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Loc8tor Lite (Electronics)
No, I don't keep loosing my daughter but she keeps loosing her keys, and it got her out of a pickle several times already. They just got a cat but have no cat flap so leave the back door ajar and this locator tells them if the animal is in or out. They love this gadget and would not be without it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reached the parts Talk-Talk router didn’t, 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this router/modem (reviews said good WiFi range) to replace the free Talk-Talk one that kept dropping the connection. I get one bar more signal strength and a secure connection. Setup is easy with the CD and automatic for all ISP… except Talk-Talk where it asks for some settings. So here they are (you don’t need them all):
Connection Type: RFC 2516 PPPoE (yes, it is PPPoE and not PPPoA)
Multiplexing: LLC
PCR: 0
SCR: 0
Autodetect: Disabled
VPI: 0
VCI: 38
DSL Modulation: MultiMode
User name: this is your telephone number with ‘@dialbb.com’ added e.g. 017123456@dialbb.com
Password: call the helpline for this, it is the ‘internet password’ (not WiFi, TalkTalk or AOL)

I had to keep resetting the router every few days until I changed the IP address (apparently my neighbor's router had the same as mine). You do this by typing the following into your browser address bar:
http://192.168.1.1
Username: admin
Password: the same as for your WiFi network
Then go down to ‘Router Address’ and change the last digit to something else (e.g. 192.168.1.7) then click ‘Save Changes’
WRITE THE NEW ADDRESS DOWN (sticky label under the router is good)

Would I recommend it? Well, I got another one for my mum so that says something.

I collect different issues of Saburo Sakai's book. This one was one I didn't have so was added to my collection. The price was very good and the condition new, so I am very pleased.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mine had a weak handle, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good well thought out design but when shaking it after washing it snapped where the handle joins the base. I may have shaken it too hard but my old colander has been through hundreds of my shakes and never complained. Pity because it really is (was!) a nice piece of kit to have in the kitchen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Careful what printer you use it on., 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for a HP 6500A but apparently the voltage drop is too much for it and so the printer does not respond. Tried it on a HP Deskjet 970Cxi just to test the cable and it did work, so printers that have a higher USB threshold response would not be suitable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for real doctors, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as a joke present for someone who got a Phd in education and insists on being addressed as 'doctor'. Does not seem to work very well as a real stethoscope (hard to hear the heartbeat) but as it is very cheap it would make a nice present for a youngster interested in biology or medicine.

What can you say about a cable? They are standard cables, good quality, low price and no problems. Go for it

Offered by Home & Travel

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Didn't work when I got it but gave a similar one to my daughter last year and it found her keys and (needless to say) she was please with it and it is still working. Can't blame the device for not working because even with a failure rate of 1 in 100,000 someone will end up with a dud, however, it should have been checked before dispatch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic but does the job, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for my mother's Vista PC and it does the job. Easy to install, easy to set up. No great range (3 bars with router in next room) but value for money and keeps working. Just what mum wanted.
