CiT 3.5 inch USB 2.0 SATA and IDE HDD Enclosure
CiT 3.5 inch USB 2.0 SATA and IDE HDD Enclosure

Price: 12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very neat unit, easy to put together., 14 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to house a new Toshiba 1TB HD bought to expand our satellite '+' box. Completely happy with the combination. Box is very neat and does not look out of place beside the TV.
No problem at all putting it together, 5 min job and it was up and running. Once I had worked out how to format a 1 TB disk drive just plugged it in and away.

New disk to expand the storage of our Satellite receiver '+' box. Now have lots of space. Worked perfectly from the start. Very quiet. Bought a CiT enclosure to put it in, also completely happy with that. Perfect combination.

3.0 out of 5 stars It works but not brilliant, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not 100% happy. The device certainly works and does as it says. But it is not easy to get the dish lined up quite right with it - especially perched on the top of a ladder, perhaps just not quite sensitive enough. We are in a very weak signal area so maybe the poor signal is the problem. However I got the dish realigned OK (it moved in a storm) for much less than paying our local satellite professional to come back to do it for the 3rd time so not a failure, and its here for next time too. Worth having for the odd DIY dish realignment but I would suggest it is not adequate for heavy or professional use.


Bosch PWS 850-125 Grinder
Bosch PWS 850-125 Grinder
Offered by Tooled-Up
Price: 62.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent machine, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already had a smaller (115) Bosch grinder but came across a job it was not up too. Bought a cheap thing in local DIY shop - died after a couple of hours, should know by now! So bit the bullet and bought this one. Lovely to use, motor is very smooth running, though fairly heavy. Just keeps going and blasts through cement, bricks and concrete (with a diamond disc on it). Used for a lot of jobs now and very happy to have spent the extra money.

This review is from: Silicone Grease 50G (Electronics)
Used a different make for several years but could not get hold of it when tube finally ran out. So bought this one. Larger tube for less money and it seems to do the job just as well. Prompt delivery too. A good buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings about this purchase., 26 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The main thing I was after was the filter holder itself, the other bits were secondary. The filter holder is NOT a Cokin original but a fair copy. The slots in it for holding the thin filters are badly formed and don't work - they won't take a genuine Cokin filter. I ended up paying the extra and buying a genuine one separately. The filters themselves are OK, but not the quality of Cokin and quite easy to scratch in comparison (I do use both) so extra care is needed. The carry wallet is handy though quite bulky. Not sufficiently unhappy to make a complaint (given the price) but would not really recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great device, easy to use and works., 26 Oct 2013

Bought as a temporary measure so I could pre-load a new hard disk for my notebook before installing it. Worked very well, in fact so well the old disk is now installed in this and in use for storing photos. So easy to carry around in a pocket and plugs into any computer with a USB port. Great, in use for around 2 years now and no problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars They work fine., 26 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They are light bulbs, they work as they should. It is early days but they seem to be lasting just as long as the normal Philps bulbs I had used previously and no obvious difference in the light they give. Our local car shop is charging around 15 Euro for one Philips H1 bulb which on the bad roads around here only last about 6 to 9 months so these are a major saving. I bought 10, 1 was dud on arrival, but given the price I am still happy with them and I'd buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent performance from these new headphones., 26 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace my old Wharfedale headphones which have finally fallen apart after more than 40 years use. Having read the reviews I expected these to be good though allowing for inflation over 40 years they cost considerably less in real terms than the Wharfedales. I would have been happy if the sound was as good - it is better! Quite an improvement in clarity and somewhat more volume too. About the same comfort to wear as the old ones, though fractionally heavier. The earpads could perhaps do with being a bit bigger to go round my big ears. A very happy customer, definitely recommend these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fulll product for a give-away price., 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been a Word-Perfect user for over 20 years. Much prefer it to MS Word. I have been using release 6 until recently but unfortunately was having big problems with printer drivers, WP did not properly support the never drivers for modern printers. So I was looking out for an upgrade when I found this ad. Easy upgrade and rel 12 has solved all the printer problems. Very happy. Packaging could have been a bit better - the box had suffered a bit of crushing in the post - but no harm done to the contents.
