5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job., 23 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am using this adapter with a PC, which I have moved away from the router to which the PC used to be wired. The adapter and the router are ~10m apart.
The adapter was easy to install i.e. it just needed connecting. It quickly found several wireless routers in the area. I entered the passcode for ours and the connection was made. I am getting ~8Mb/s using it, which is pretty much what I was getting wired.

Works fine great for novelty and atmosphere. Not designed as bright enough to read by etc. but enough light to watch TV and generally move around.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely soft leather, 18 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Always wanted some colourful DM's but put off by talk of having to break them in so much as I have 'fussy' sensitive feet. These seem to be made of a much softer supple leather than standard '1460' type boots and are lovely. I bought Blueberry which is exactly colour shown on screen, would have preferred a colour just a shade darker but they are close enough. I buy size 6 as feet are 5.5 size long but wide at the toes & size 6 here fits fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent portable device, 23 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this as a second machine and something I can take on trips, fitting into a small backpack and for this it works perfectly. However, I needed to make a small change to get perfect performance - I added a 4GB class 6 SD card and used readyboost (a feature of windows 7).

I use this for web browsing, watching films and word processing (usually with several documents open and one with over 100,000 words), all of which work well. I do not use it for photo editing or other intensive applications. It lasts for 6 or 7 hours of use.

I seldom shut the machine down, instead sleeping it by closing the lid (this behaviour is configurable as is normal for win). I frequently use it as a quick look up device - waking it from sleep state and a few (less than 5) seconds later, I'm typing into ie's search. This is as fast as using my phone and I get full web pages returned. I've left the machine slept for several days without significant loss of battery charge.

Before using readyboost -

Web sites are slower to load than on my desktop (a quick machine) but most are fast enough not to be an issue. DVDs and iPlayer HD videos play well through the HDMI port and on its own screen but occasionally stagger.

At times it can slow down due to heavy disk activity (page faulting by system processes).

Other people have said that increasing the memory to 2GB or more will fix the slow performance. I have not done this so cannot comment. What I have done is use readyboost.

Now using readyboost -

Web page loading is generally as quick as any other machine I've used. The background system processes have little impact on performance. Google Earth (a real resource hog) works well with a few configuration tweaks. Videos are smooth.

So overall its a good little portable machine, ready to use in seconds (if you avoid shutting down). But I would definitely add the readyboost.

Good size fits our Asus 10.1 Notebook with a little room to spare. Reasonable padding. Seems robust and well made. Cheapest we could find by quite a long way and very happy.

This review is from: Maru Polyester Swim Hat (Misc.)
Item received quick and is exactly what expected and appears well enough made. Not waterproof but I didn't want a waterproof one as I find then difficult to get on / off and uncomfortable.

Holds my thick curly just above shoulder length hair in well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flaky software ruins a great concept, 20 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as a novelty Xmas pressie for mother. I loaded with family photos and it seemed easy ( the usability of the software is great) but when it came to adding more piccies post Xmas the thing would not speak with a number of computers we tried it on. The software wouldn't even open despite numerous attempts.

About to try and return it so had one 'final go' a few days later and it worked OK!

Internet search reveals this is common issue due to the nature of the software. Once in a blue moon it will connect OK, and then we rush to get a few more photos on but it's very frustrating and I certainly couldn't give it as a pressie for Mum / Dad to update themselves.
