5.0 out of 5 stars Fixed my poor signal strength, 2 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this product when I wanted to connect a new digital TV to my aerial alongside a Freeview plus box.

Previously, the Freeview+ had been the only thing connected to the aerial, and had been receiving just enough signal, but connecting the TV as well (via a standard aerial lead splitter) had resulted in a drop in the signal strength and neither was now picking up the full complement of channels available in my area.

Anyway, along comes this Splitter/booster for under a tenner and now both my receivers are working perfectly.
Job done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, no whistles or bells, 2 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace our existing (and seemingly now defunct) wired modem after upgrading a Desktop running XP to a Win7 laptop.

Well packaged in a strong box with all the cables you could possibly need to set it up and use it. Power adapter is a transformer-on-the-plug sort, rather than one of those plug-wire-transformer-*more*wire ones (which really annoy me).

The quick start instructions were easy enough to follow (at least to start with) and resulted in the router being setup and working very quickly (you have to connect it physically with a network cable (supplied) for this part of the installation). However, once you got that far there didn't seem to be any help in then setting up the security aspects of the wireless network, and I had to work this out pretty much by trial and error.

All sorted now, and working fine.

Bottom line: excellent product considering it's half the price of anything you can buy in the shops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well packaged and works perfectly, 7 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfectly little memory card for phones, etc.

Item and packaging nice and sturdy, not cheap and flimsy looking like some budget electrical items I've purchased. Not bad for less than £5 including postage.

As an extra plus point, the plastic part of the pack clips back together, so it can be used to store the large "adapter" part of the card whilst it's not being used.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value but a bit hard, 3 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's getting increasingly hard to find proper dubbin in "outdoor" shops these days, so was really glad to find this on amazon for a couple of quid. It's a bit stiffer than I'm used to, and you might find it's easier to apply if you leave it in the sun or by a radiator for a couple of hours prior to use!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value., 10 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These work fine, and make extremely narrow cuts in wood relatively easily. Make sure you hold your rotary tool firmly, though, so it doesn't run away with you.

A couple of points about previous reviews:

1)My order came complete with five discs as shown, so think Mark Haywood must have got a dodgy pack, I'm guessing - should have contacted seller about this.

2) These aren't "meant to cut steal"[sic], they're made FROM steel to cut wood, plastics etc. which they do very well for the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars More like files, 10 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are ok, but the cutting edges are neither sharp nor deep enough to really cut through wood like a router. Instead, think of them more as coarse files. However, they're much cheaper than other router bits, so if you're looking for something to carve very soft wood, they may be worth a try before spending more money on something else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good - one or two things, though..., 9 Aug. 2010
Just purchased the 250GB version of this, and am very impressed with the product overall. Very simple to use - just one lead to connect, and then you just drag and drop or copy&paste files to transfer.

Tranfering 20GB of data across took about 40 mins, so not too bad in speed terms. (it seems that the larger "desktop" (rather than "portable") drives are about 50% quicker)

Couple of minor issues, though:

Firstly, the documents accompanying the product say that a PDF manual is preloaded on the drive - it isn't, there's just a couple of "autorun" files. That said, a manual doesn't seem really necessary for most users.

Secondly(and potentially the most annoying problem), the lead provided is only about 45 cm long, so could prove really awkward for some people depending on the location of their USB ports relative to where they want to site the drive.
