5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, easy to use, 18 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this with a Qnap server, virgin hub and a router to manage DNS and VPN.
Easy to set up, easy to use. Comes with the cable to connect to my Qnap 409 and it can tie in to power down my Qnap automatically after n minutes of power cut.
It is not too big but gives plenty of power.
If you want a simple Qnap with normal 3 pin connections then this is fully recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good if you wear glasses, 18 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I use a lot of headphones. I have a mix of wired and some blue tooth connected.

These are fairy small and light. Once you work out how to put them on your ears they are fairly straightforward. Sound quality is good after connecting to your iphone (other poor phones are available). I have used with Iphone and Ipad and it connected quickly and simply.

Distance to headphones was fine over 5 meters with no degradation at all. I am sure it would go further.

A downside is I cannot see how to change the volume from the headset. The other downside is the normal issue with these type of headsets that have a fixed line between ear pieces - they do not work well when wearing glasses. They have been ok when I have run, as I take my glasses off, but in normal wear they just feel lose all the time and fall out.

In summary,
- fairly good build, bit plasticky but it keeps the weight down
- good sound, no issues
- can only see how to change volume from the player
- not really recommended for anyone wearing glasses
- easy to connect via blue tooth and no issues with holding the connection

So....if you wear glasses then stick with headphones that do not go round the ear like these, full cans and in ear are fine. If you do not wear glasses then these are good bluetooth headphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent laptop bag - very well made and professional looking, 17 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have had a few Wenger bags and this is excellent.
It has plenty of pockets including a very useful top pocket for smaller items and passes etc. The zip quality is excellent, I've never had a zip fail on me and I expect this to be as a minimum as good as other Wenger bags.
It is a comfortable bag to carry on your back plus also is well balanced when carrying using the carry handle. The handle is strengthened and very well put together.
Looks wise the bag is very god. Looks very professional and you will have no problems taking this into any meeting room.
It easily takes a laptop and Ipad plus plenty of room for papers etc.

Overall, if you are looking for a very high quality laptop bag then this is the answer. Excellent bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product - does what it should do very well, 2 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Dishwasher tabs need to,
- not crumble to nothing putting it in the little holder
- not leave any residue
- clean everything

Finish tick every box. Other makes may be available but Finish are the best. Excellent product you know that will do just what it's meant to do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but needs a bit more work, 2 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First impression was that this is a fair sized unit, it's not too big but it's not a coffee table sized speaker.

I work away and rent apartments and already have Sonos at home. This is for my rental place and it also gives me the opportunity to compare.

The unit looks and feels very well made. It has a good, solid weight. It feels physically well balanced.

I use it to stream radio and play music from an iPhone. I set up wifi and connect via Bluetooth.

Setting it up was not too difficult but it is not as easy as Sonos. The app feels a bit clunky and not as polished.

Connecting via Bluetooth works fine but if you then use a streaming service it needs resetting again through the app. This may be due the requirements of Bluetooth but it's a bit of a pain.

The app itself feels a bit overly complicated. You can't easily find and play music. It's ok but not really easy.

The sound quality is excellent. Lovely warm sound. I've played speech radio, pop and classical music. All sounded clear and the sound is distinct.

One area I did miss from Sonos is that you can't easily manage sound interchangeably from multiple devices. You need to connect again if you change from iPhone to iPad. It's not a deal breaker but needs sorting.

The controls are pretty good but I do sense a slight lag in volume control over Bluetooth. It's not major but changing volume does not feel immediate.

Overall,
- sound is very good
- app on iPhone and iPad needs more work to make it simpler
- the apparent lag on volume control needs resolving

Finally, Jongo versus Sonos? Sonos due to the inherent simplicity and excellent app.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made and very nice to use, 27 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the first time I have used a quality stylus. I'm using it on an iPad air.

It does feel a bit weird at first but then it is really useful. It's great in colouring photos and there are some great apps where you can write on the screen and it saves it as photos. Great for hand written notes. Brings a new experience and functionality to the iPad.

The item itself feels high quality. Solid but not too heavy. Lovely metal feeling and very well balanced.

They are not cheap but this is so much better than the rubber tipped type.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, clear to use and in simple English, 23 Jan. 2015
This review is from: iPhone Portable Genius (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have had iPhones since the 3GS and am now on the 6. It does though still surprise how much I do not know. The key benefit of this book though is that I can quickly and easily help family and friends
The layout is good. Finding the area you want help on doing or clearly explaining is easy. I really appreciate the screen shots - it also helps me even explain over the phone.

The other good thing is that it tells you about things you may not even know about which is major benefit.

Overall, if you want a guide/help on using iPhones then this is a really good option and certainly the best I have used. It's worth it to cut the pain and to help others!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product!, 22 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fabulous product aimed at the premium end of the market. Very well made and stylish in pale pink with stainless steel trim where the brush head attaches. There are five settings; clean, white, polish, gum care and sensitive. It also has a battery charge indicator. The travel case is also very well made ( again finished in pink) with space for one toothbrush and two brush head attachments. It promises to give you whiter teeth in a week - I disagree - I noticed the difference after one session of clean and whitening - I had some slight tea stains which just disappeared!

Charging the toothbrush is easy by using the charging mug, electrical socket or USB ( great for frequent travellers). Fully charged, there should be enough for three weeks without re-charging. If there is one thing which is slightly irritating is that you cannot choose the setting until you start and then you can't see what the setting is unless you take the brush out of your mouth.

If you only buy one electric toothbrush splash out and get this one.
