5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect as small carry-on bag for Ryanair, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Did a lot of research to find a carry-on bag for Ryanair that meets its size limits. It takes my Asus T100 tablet/laptop (with charger at the side) as well as my Kindle, phone, passport, etc. Looks pretty cool too - except my wife now calls me Postman Pat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Secret Santa present for a City-mad grandson, 21 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
He loved it! Here's the Secret Santa poem that went with it:

Matteo is a smashing kid
who loves to ride his scooter
Nerf guns are a passion too
and he’s a demon shooter

But sadly for a Blackburn lad
he loves a team called City
The Etihad’s his pitch of choice,
It really is a pity!

Aguero is a man of fame,
upfront he’s almost holy
Panti-limon’s a silly name,
so Hart’s top trumps as goalie

Which brings me to this gift of yours,
a game to play with Oli.
Although he is a fan of Spurs,
I’m sure you’ll both be jolly!

Merry Christmas Matteo
With love from Santa!
(the real one!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Safe home for a perfect phone!, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this type of protection because I couldn't bear to cover this beautiful phone in a fitted case with screen protector. The cover does the job very well and, apart from a dangling thread which I had to remove with scissors, is well finished.

Great music by great musicians! A stellar list of singers who really deliver. Paul Weller sounds like a genuine old-style jazz singer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great when used with android phone portable hotspot., 15 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Recently bought a seaside flat as a holiday home. Needed broadband but didn't fancy paying for a land line and full ISP subscription so decided to try using my HTC Desire HD on which I have a Three network One Plan - i.e. "All you can eat" data. To extend the range and to connect the new smart tv, I thought I'd try the TP-Link range extender and it worked wonderfully. The phone wirelessly connects easily to the range extender which is connected by Ethernet cable to a Devolo Homeplug. Another such Homeplug is connected to the smart tv on which I can now stream BBC iplayer etc with no buffering stoppages. I can also connect my laptop wirelessly and use it anywhere in the flat. So for my needs this range extender is perfect!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely new Red Tosh, 17 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm very pleased with my new "small object of desire". Slim, shiny and red, and very nearly as light as my 5 year old Tosh Portege M300; which it replaces as my travel partner. Battery life is exceptional - I've not reached 11 hours yet but I'm finding I only need to recharge it at night - a bit like my mobile; which also conveniently charges from the usb with the computer switched off! Unsurprisingly, it's not lighting fast and BBC iPlayer HD won't show smoothly but non-HD content looks great on the excellent screen, and Windows 7 runs like a dream. Not many downsides: it took a while to be able to hear it properly due to the stupidly low default settings on the bundled "SMARTAudio" SmartEQ/3D Settings; mine has a rough edge on the lid and the lid is a little awkward to open (bit stiff and no latch); and the whole thing doesn't feel as robust as my Portege - which has survived some very rough treatment over the years. Still, it was half the price of my Portege, has three times the battery life, about 9 times the disk capacity and it looks gorgeous, so overall I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my needs, 14 Nov 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My new EEE Box arrived promptly and was up and running quickly. I've attached it to the back of my Panasonic flatscreen tv, added a usb tv tuner (Freecom) and connected it to my home network via a devolo network plug. I can now watch BBC IPlayer etc.; view, record and pause freeview channels and watch/play content streamed from the Buffalo Linkstation NAS on the network. The setup also means I can watch recorded TV on other computers on my home network and, by using Logmein (free version), I can set the EEE Box to record programmes from anywhere - which in my case means hotel rooms in far flung places as well as at home. The picture quality is perfect with no skipping!

I've no plans for using it for anything other than media watching/playing, so have not loaded any other software - except Network Magic & ZoneAlarm which don't seem to have given any performance problems. I've heard reviewers questioning the purpose of such a low power PC - well it's perfect for my needs and only cost 200!!
