Very very handy when travelling and need connectivity. Simple to use, lasts for a good time, and Huawei app is easy enough to use to configure the router.

Great case. It's fiddly to get off - almost always ends up pulling off the back phone cover with it, but then you probably needed to do that anyway if you're taking it out of the case, so maybe this is a good thing.

Super snug and protects extremely well. Great value for money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Repeatedly disconnects, 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's incredibly compact and neat, not bad to type on. USB charging is great. But a few major issues make this a very annoying product to use.

Most importantly it "sleeps" far too quickly. Sometimes it decides to do this during the briefest of pauses whilst typing. Then it takes a couple of seconds to "wake" again and register keypresses, so you've chopped out the middle of a word. Very annoying to have the CONNECTED and DISCONNECTED status flashing on and off in the middle of the screen as well. This will happen incessantly during use.

I use it for a Mac and the key bindings are confused. Backspace does indeed backspace, but Delete doesn't delete - you have to use Fn + Delete to do this. If you're used to using a Mac keyboard where Fn + Backspace deletes, this gets very annoying.

I wouldn't mind the odd mapping but the disconnections make it unusable. I'm not sure whether mine has a problem, but buyer beware if using with a Mac.

Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 for Mac, iPad or iPhone
Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 for Mac, iPad or iPhone

1.0 out of 5 stars Designed to intentionally fail - do not buy this product, 14 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice keyboard and worked fine - but only for 18 months, after which time the batteries were knackered and wouldn't take charge.

According the manual, the batteries are "non-user replaceable". Faced with a useless device, I found 2 screws but still the keyboard cover wouldn't come off - it is glued on, and removing it effectively destroys the keyboard. I carried on, seeing as it was going in the bin anyway - and inside, the batteries are standard rechargeable AAA batteries. Why are they not accessible under a cover? Why have they decided to glue them in?

It's an expensive product, and engineered for eventual failure. Making the batteries non-replaceable is just wrong, both for the environment and the consumer. Never buying Logitech again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never use chemical unblockers again!, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant, it actually works. Shove it down, give it a twist and out comes the wife's two metre matted hair rope. For the price of a single bottle of chemical unblocker you can get one of these, have a good tug and ponder that

1. your bath emptying will observe the Bernoulli equation again
2. you won't be eating wilted spinach for a while
3. no dolphins died to give you the pleasure of point 1

Job done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best bag I've ever had, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As other reviews on here have said, they have thought of everything - there's even a handle on the bottom of the bag, locakble zips and the genuinely useful sunglasses compartment. All-day comfortable with perforated straps and vents so you don't get sweaty, Scotchlite, and great capacity so it's just as good for the daily commute as a weekend away.

Never used the word faultless in a review before, but it is worth every penny.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete rubbish, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unbelievably poor quality considering the price - there are other "novelty" flying hats for a quarter of the price, so didn't think it was in that category. "Faux" leather is nothing of the sort - a nasty cracked polyester shell that feels nothing like leather. The lining sheds very easily, leaving bits of orange fluff everywhere. And the goggles are a cheap £3 accessory that can be found elsewhere on Amazon.

Perhaps we got a defective example, but it was horrid, can't believe the other positive reviews. Avoid unless you want to be disappointed.

As other reviews have stated, some phones don't have quite enough welly to power them to realise their full potential. But they are still amazing for the morning commute. Plugged into anything else, they are absolutely top notch. Very comfortable for all day listening.

Great product, using innovative material - had no idea cork could be used like this and remain flexible. Very nicely finished. Great customer service, would buy again from this company.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid - especially if you don't have a CD-ROM drive, 1 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly the same experience as M.T. Humberstone. I consider myself pretty tech-savvy but could not get this to connect to WiFi. Brother "Technical Support" is non-existent.

First up, installation packages are on a CD-ROM. No good if you have a machine with no optical drive...still pretty commonplace, but surely these days an outdated medium shouldn't be the main way of getting a driver to a user, it will nearly always be out of date by time of use....Still, Google around and download the drivers and Setup Wizard from their retro website...whoah, 113MB?? Ah but that's the wizard for every single one of their printers...so navigate to the correct one, about 5 folders deep. This looks right, OK, enter network details...and it's crashed. Not only has it crashed but the wizard process CAN'T BE TERMINATED and keeps running in the background. Even forcing a quit via the operating system can't shut it down. So a hard reboot is necessary. THREE TIMES. Every time the wizard runs, it hangs and takes the OS with it.

I tried another solution online but you need to keep resetting the printer and checking its internal configuration. Each and every time this spits out 6 sheets of paper, and every time the machine was showing the wrong setup.

I try tech support - they ensure "they are by my side all the way through this". But they are the American support team and can't help me. I try the localised UK website. 2 requests go unanswered after 48 hours. The third arrives with an Automatically Generated Support Solution. Great. So a computer knows how to fix their printer. I open the doc - it's a link. I go there - it takes me to the FRONT PAGE OF THEIR KNOWLEDGE BASE. I KNOW WHERE YOUR KNOWLEDGE BASE IS!!! I'VE ALREADY SPENT 3 HOURS ON IT!!!

So for this, back to Amazon. I will never buy another Brother product, if this is anything to go by they are dinosaurs and deserve to become extinct like them.
