4.0 out of 5 stars This fan is OK, and Gelid are Good Eggs, 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace a dead fan in a G-Technology G-Safe (2 HDD RAID).

I chose the Gelid as it was:
1. Offered by Quiet PC.com, so I thought it would be quiet! (they were out of stock, so I bought from Amazon.)
2. Almost, but not quite, the same dimensions as the original fan (Sunon KDE1206FV2, 60x60x10)

http://www.gelidsolutions.com/products/index.php?lid=2&cid=5&id=75&tab=2

The connector on the Gelid was different to that on the Sunon & the G-Safe circuit board, so I contacted Gelid for a wiring diagram (the wires are all black) they replied promptly. (I've uploaded the annotated photo that Gelid sent me. Look for 'product images from customers' on this page.)

I cut the wires & connector off the Sunon, and connected them to the wires on the Gelid. My wiring was a bit of an ugly bodge, but its all hidden away inside the gizmo.

It works. You can hear the fan, but its not loud.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a good buy., 7 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to use with an Apple MacBook pro.

Sometimes it works OK. Sometimes it doesn't.

If I was looking for another docking station, I would buy one of Zalman's docking stations instead. Today that would be the ZM-MH200 U3.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, not great., 28 Aug. 2014
The keyboard works OK. One thing I find annoying is that the raised ridges on the F and J keys, (that help touch typists position their hands on the keyboard) are too slight. The tops of all the keys are textured, so you can miss the bumps.

Not a keyboard I'm going to fall in love with, but it's OK, and it was cheap!

This review is from: Union Cruiser 5 Lever KA Padlock
Good quality lever lock. We use it for the garage, with ERA's 'narrow locking bar' hasp.

If you are reviewing your shed/garage security, you might want to consider Pragmasis' suggestions of what to look at (link below).

This review is from: Shel (Audio CD)
Really glad I bought this. You can listen to all the tracks on YouTube, but I like having the CD.

After coming across their videos, I browsed their twitter posts, and one of Sarah (violin player) blogs reminded me that CD sales are an important revenue stream to professional musicians. Not all musicians are millionaire libertines. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, bad binding., 17 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very interesting content. I'm going to follow the strategies suggested for increasing willpower-stamina, and see how that goes.

What prompts this review though is not the content, but the physical book itself. It's printed on low quality paper, and glued at the spine rather than stitched, so I'm guessing it will fall apart sooner rather than later. A bit disappointing for a hardback.

4.0 out of 5 stars All seems OK., 2 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're going to use the low profile bracket, you might find a 5mm spanner/socket useful. After installing the card on an HP Slimline (s5304uk), Windows 7 "windows experience index" gave a score of 4.6 for (desktop/video) graphics, and 6.1 for gaming graphics.
