5.0 out of 5 stars Very fast, smart looking and inexpensive enclsoure, 24 Oct. 2014
Not much bigger than the 2.5 inch drive it's designed for, Inateck offered me this enclosure in return for an honest review. It's very straightforward to insert a drive - just slide back the rear panel, slot the drive into place, slide the panel back and it's good to go. It doesn't need a separate power, has an on/off button and an LED indicator light. A USB cable is supplied. Made from hard plastic, it looks smart, houses my 9mm SATA drive securely and there's a small foam pad included for thinner drives. It's USB 3.0 so transfer speeds are unsurprisingly fast. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Affordable upgrade, 24 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace my Acer laptop's Toshiba 160GB SATA II 5,400rpm hard drive. I did consider an SSD but extra capacity was needed, not extra speed. I removed the existing drive, cloned it and replaced it with this drive and, including a tidy up of the partitions using AOMEI Partition Assistant after I'd fitted it, the whole process took about 90 minutes. It's no quieter than my old drive but programs launch quicker than before and my laptop shuts down faster. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Straightforward to use and hassle free cloning, 24 Oct. 2014
I was offered this dual bay docking station by Inateck in return for an honest review and it prompted me to finally upgrade my laptop's 160GB SATA II drive for one with a 500GB capacity. I used it to clone the existing drive and then format it afterwards.

Cloning:

After moving all my personal files to a portable drive and leaving it with 40GB of data on it - Windows 7 and all installed software - I inserted the drive being cloned into Slot A, the target drive into Slot B, pressed the 'Clone' button twice, and had a perfect clone of my 160GB drive 70 minutes later. In all it took me 90 minutes to remove, clone and replace the existing drive. It's done independently of a PC, is almost silent and lights on the interface show the progress. The target drive was an exact clone of my existing drive and everything worked and loaded exactly as it did before. A quick sort out of the partitions using AOMEI Partition Assistant and it was good to go.

Formatting.

I connected the docking station to my laptop (plug and play simplicity), inserted the 160GB disk and it showed up as an extra drive, allowing me to remove the partitions and format it, prior to housing it in an enclosure to be used as a portable drive.

Summary:

I'm absolutely delighted with this docking station. It so simple to use and you don't need to be a geek to understand it. It works with 2½" & 3½" SATA drives and also SSD and is so handy for moving data between any unhoused drives and completely takes the hassle out of cloning. This is one device that all hands-on IT professionals and hobbyists will find useful. Two thumbs up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Massive 128GB Capacity, 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's good to see the capacity of the MicroSD card double to a whopping 128GB. I'm using mine exclusively for storing MP3s and I've managed to store over 800 CD albums ripped at 320kbps.

It works to its FULL capacity on the following versions of Android that my devices have between them, despite the instructions for all devices claiming that they only accept MicroSD cards up to 32GB:

Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread)
Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean)
Android 4.4.2 (KitKat)

I can't vouch for earlier versions of Android but the evidence suggests that this should work with Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread) onwards. It also works to its full capacity with the latest SanDisk Clip Sport MP3 player and the newly released hudl 2. An SD adapter is included.

***To avoid the possibility of receiving a fake card, just order DIRECT from Amazon!***

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive, easy and effective upgrade, 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this after one of my USB ports died on my laptop and the ExpressCard 54 port (which I've never used) was free. It fits flush and after installing the drivers from the supplied CD, it works perfectly. A very cheap and effective upgrade. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drop dead gorgeous, 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Herb Alpert Presents (Audio CD)
Chic, elegant, sophisticated and drop dead gorgeous, this is one of the coolest albums imaginable. The two female vocalists elevate this music to another level and along with the quality of the song writing, the choice of covers (Mendes, as highlighted here on 'Day Tripper', covered The Beatles better than anyone else), musicianship, arrangements and production, it set the Bossa Nova benchmark upon its release. Alongside 'Look Around', this is the best Sergio Mendes & Brazil '66 album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacking finesse and subtlety but perfect for the great outdoors, 21 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As big as a brick and as heavy as one, this is, build wise, a serious bit of kit. Splash proof, made of heavy duty plastic and with a removable thick rubber shell, this Bluetooth speaker is built for the great outdoors and to withstand knocks and drops.

Sound wise, it's good but nothing special. There is a depth to the sound but to my ears it's lacking the finesse and subtlety expected from a speaker in this price range. Volume wise, it goes spectacularly loud but even at low volumes I can't listen to it for more than a couple of hours before having to switch it off as listening becomes uncomfortable on the ear. It's a bit like listening to an over compressed CD.

It paired immediately with my iPad and Android phone and the Bluetooth range is good. The battery is seriously impressive with an average 12 hours of playback. It has volume buttons that you can also use to skip between tracks (except when streaming music i.e. when using the Amazon Music app. Other Bluetooth speakers I've used costing much less allow you to do this).

Despite its weight, this is a speaker made for taking camping or down to the beach, situations where finesse and subtlety are secondary considerations and loudness, along with battery life, is everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Built to last, perfect frying results and easy to clean too, 16 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This a weighty and well made pan that is built to last for years. It is quite small and the heat is distributed evenly and it's ideal for frying eggs, bacon, meatballs, etc. It cleans so easily - before giving it the once over in the washing-up bowl, just wipe it with some kitchen roll and it's like new with none of the black residue you sometimes get from aluminium pans. To show an indication of its size and how easy it is to clean, I've uploaded some photos (see Product Images from Customers).

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality face cleanser, 16 Oct. 2014
I can't find fault with this cleanser and can see a definite improvement in my overall complexion in the couple of months I've been using it. It is expensive but a 125ml tube lasts for 3-4 months - it foams up really easily and you only need to use a tiny amount each time to cleanse your face and neck. Clarins are giving their men's range of skincare products a big push in Debenhams at the moment, but I'll be sticking with this. Definitely recommended and worth the outlay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional DIY skin care but exceptional price too, 9 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After using this four times in the past forthight and expending the full 50ml in the process, I can confidently state that this is a high end face mask that works so much better than the Simple one I occasionally use. And it should do given the £45+ price difference.

I applied it each time a couple of hours after having a wet shave (to give my skin time to recover from the shave) and left it on for the recommended 10 minutes and then rinsed it off. Wow! My skin felt so much better and smoother and I was amazed at how clear my complexion looked. Not as good as if I'd visited a salon but not a million miles away. It's easy to apply using your fingertips (I binned the applicator supplied), doesn't irritate the skin and you can almost feel it going to work immediately - it doesn't just sit on your skin and dry out,

The only problem is the price. For the same £50+ asking price at the time of writing I could visit a salon once a fortnight (50ml is a two week supply if used twice weekly as suggested in the directions) and get the full works - exfoliating, deep cleanse, face mask and a neck & shoulder massage and I think that in the longer term a salon visit will possibly be the better option for anyone who spends this sort of money on their skin care. If it was half the price I'd definitely use it on a regular basis.
