5.0 out of 5 stars Good enclosure., 23 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little box seems to be a well designed enclosure for M.2 drives. It supports 4 sizes of drive. The bolt that holds the drive in place is actually long enough unlike one of the other enclosures available on Amazon.

It also seems to not have the USB3 incompatibility that the other enclosure had.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent charger for AA and AAA batteries., 29 Mar. 2015
Although I had a perfectly serviceable charger, I wanted something that could get a bit more life out of a set of rechargeable batteries that I have been using for 5+ years so I was especially interested in the test and refresh functions. Well it works! The refresh function has managed to drag out a couple of extra hundred mAh out of them.

It is also great being able to leave the charger on and just swap batteries in and out. If I wanted to charge 2 batteries, test 1 and refresh another this is all possible because you can select what to do on a battery by battery basis.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only lasted a year before failing., 29 Mar. 2015

Although this battery fits the Motorola V545, as described, it only lasted a year before it stopped holding charge. (Compared to the original battery that came with the phone which lasted at least 3 years before it wore out).

Great batteries. Bought on the back of good reviews on a number of battery websites. They are Eneloops so hold their charge over a long period of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Working replacement battery for Motorola V545 mobile., 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The battery fits the phone and when charged seems to last as long as the OEM battery when new.

Only time will tell if it lasts more than a year before it dies like some of the other replacement batteries I have bought for this phone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing lifespan., 8 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first time that I have bought Bosch wipers instead of OEM blades. I bought them on the back of good reviews on one of the car magazine website. I must say that I am disappointed by these blades in that they seems to last no more than a couple of weeks before they became smeary. After 3 months and I am considering replacing them they are so bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little portable Blu-ray drive., 17 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For some reason I managed to purchase a laptop that did not come with a Blu-ray drive and a small computer that did not have space for a CD/DVD/Blu-ray in the chassis and was in the need to play Blu-rays, so purchased the Samsung SE-506AB.

Admittedly I have not used it to burn any Blu-ray disks, but it is a capable drive for playing them, and burns DVDs and CDs without issue. When you insert a disk, it clips onto the drive spindle. This means you can safely move the drive around a bit while it is in use.

The construction of the drive seems solid enough as I have dropped it a couple of times and the thing does not seem any worse for wear. The drive doesn't need a separate power supply. The USB cable that comes with the drive actually has 2 x USB plugs. The second one can be used to give the drive extra power if the USB port on your machine is anaemic, but I have never needed it. You can't use the second USB plug to plug the drive into 2 machines at the same time. The USB cable is not detachable. Some people might not like that, but for me this just means I wont lose the cable :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A cool and quiet drive, 17 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased a number of these drives for my home NAS box. Just like the 3TB version they are quiet. You can hear them spin up, but after that the noise tends to fade away to below the level of the NAS fan. The seek noise seems slightly higher than the 3TB version though. The next thing to note is that they don't seem to generate very much heat which means the NAS does not need to spin up the chassis fan above it's lowest setting.

Although these drives are branded for NAS use, they will work in any computer with space for 3.5" drives and SATA ports. If you were going to put one into your computer it would make an excellent mass storage drive along side an SSD.

Only time will tell if they are reliable in the long term. I'm not seeing any warning signs from the Internet community.
