Deore HG-51 8-Speed Cassette 11-28 grey Size:0
Price: £17.99

5.0 out of 5 stars so all is good.., 11 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As stated by the earlier reviewer, this is an Alivio rather than a Deore component.
That's exactly what I wanted, so all is good...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money with limitations, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Impressively similar to the genuine Nikon item for around a tenth the price,but made from plastic rather than magnesium alloy.
Even the battery trays are interchangeable (including the BC-5). The quality of the buttons and dials is very good also.

Unfortunately the good news ends there. Far too much wobble for me to trust using it with a heavy lens on the camera (when you want to use a grip IMHO). Continually flashing "BP" icon on the LCD when using a genuine EN-EL18 battery also doesn't inspire confidence either.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor fit for X100s, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't recommend this for the X100/s, as it is a very loose fit in the hot shoe and wiggles around in use.
In addition, the grip blocks use of the rear command dial.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best, 23 Nov 2010
By far the best book on Capture NX2. Clearly written by someone who actually uses the program.
Concise and to the point, highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 23 Nov 2010
Having read some of the other titles in the "Real World" series I had high hopes for this one.
Ultimately I'm disappointed because it doesn't add anything that's not in the (actually pretty good) Capture NX manual and gives the impression of being produced by a professional author who's been paid to write a Capture NX book rather than someone who actually uses the program. The photos used in the book are also very amateurish and contribute to this feel.
Don't bother with this one - buy "Capture NX 2 - After The Shoot" instead , which really is so much better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap rubbish, 23 Nov 2010
Wouldn't charge up in the Panasonic charger and wouldn't power the camera.
Cheap and nasty build quality.
Rating on the battery was only 900mwh as opposed to 1250 of the panasonic battery.
Avoid this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it, 23 Nov 2010
Bought this to get better performance from my Sandisk Extreme IV UDMA cards and was not disappointed.
60% faster in my tests than my Sandisk Extreme reader - awesome.
I don't understand why a few other reviewers have complaints about compatibility - the reader handles all my Sandisk, Lexar and Kingston CF and SDHC cards without problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased, 22 July 2009
As mentioned by other reviewers, this is a well made and competitively priced drive that just works.

My only gripes are:

1/ It's not that quiet, due to the large fan keeping the drives cool.
2/ The power switch is at the back rather than the front.

But these really are minor niggles.
