5.0 out of 5 stars cheap and Effective Use for Old Hard Drives., 27 Nov 2014
Swapping hard drives and buying larger hard drives has left me with eleven. I bought a caddy for several of them but that can work out expensive, especially if I only use them occasionally.And they all have nasty little tiny screws which get lost easily and end up stripping the threads of the plastic if you try to swap them more than three times. So three caddys and eight hard drives left naked.
One of these solves that problem. Plug and play and the contents are on view inside fifteen seconds. It is also a good way of testing suspect hard drives. You can run a virus scan without the hard drive being able to infect your pc with a virus or spyware or trojans.
This is a cheap effective efficient way of utilising old hard drives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every 'I' Covered., 27 Nov 2014
There is a list of all the Apple products it is compatible with; they should have issued a list of items it cannot charge as it would have been much shorter.
like most of the products from this company it performs exactly the same as the original manufactured example but at a fraction of the cost.
I am always asked two questions "How much did you pay for that?", which is quickly followed by "Where can I get one?" when they recover from the shock of how inexpensive it is in comparison with an Apple original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper Than Magazine Binders, 25 Nov 2014
Simple maths dictate that it costs 37 pence per magazine to keep them flat, clean and secure. For some reason most houses seem to have a ring binder going spare and because of the variety of holes it fits two or three or four ring binders.Much cheaper than buying magazine binders.

SMO MUSE AUDIO X5 MINI HIFI USB DAC PCM2704 SOUND CARD BOARD Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Instant Improvement Ove Standard Sound Card, 25 Nov 2014
The sound card fitted to most pc.s and laptops is usually the cheapest possible to the point where it is difficult to find a sound that could be worse. If you do a straight feed through an amplifier which is what I used to do, you are just making an inferior sound louder. One of these connected to an a mplifier makes the sound come alive at less cost than the cheapest internal sound card.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charges More Than Just The Galaxy, 25 Nov 2014
I bought this for a Samsung tablet as a spare when I mislaid the original. I kept it after I got rid of the Samsung tablet and now use it to recharge whatever is nearby that needs charging. The list includes a tablet, a phone a powerbank and baby monitor

5.0 out of 5 stars Relatively Cheap Upgrade., 25 Nov 2014
The keyboard supplied with most pc.s os usually cheap and nasty and not more than barely functional. One of these is an instant upgrade and I wish I had bought one years ago. I thought hot keys were a gimmick till I used them on this model.
It takes a little time to get used to after a decade of standard keybords but the ampunt of effort expended is rewarded

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Upgrade at Low Cost, 25 Nov 2014
The lead that is provided with most tv.s and dvd.s is usually the cheapest and most inferior lead that money can buy. One of these is an instant upgrade at low cost

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly Irish, Mostly Funny., 24 Nov 2014
I am half irish and so are the contents of this book. Some of the idioms are pure cockney and would never be uttered in the emerald isle except by those who have spent considerable time in england.
I think the people most in need of this book are on the far side of the atlantic and have recently come in contact with 'Mrs. Browns Boys' or are still puzzling over sayings from 'Father Ted.
The most glaring omission is no explanation of 'eejit' which baffles some people not knowing it is derived from the mispronunciation of 'idiot'.
The Irish recipes are a help to understand a nation that seems incapable of cooking anything but desserts without the inclusion of potatoes.
The full lyrics of songs that plague all Irish gatherings had the glaring omission of 'Macalpines Fusileers'
Having made those complaints the book is a perfect example of the self deprecating humour of the nation and an irreverent glimpse of the more ludicrous parts of its mores and history.
I will be buying more books by the authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light Weight, Heavy Duty, Small Size, Large Performance, 23 Nov 2014
Occasionally I take meds which give me night sweats. I sleep on a thick beach towel and it feels more like the beach; bath towels are not much better.Then I got this which was as soft feeling as a fluffy towel. It soaks up moisture and still manages to feel bone dry and weighs nothing. I have used microfibre towels before but they are usually useless sizes, more like teatowels whereas this is five feet long..
It still surprises me after a shower, actually ending up bone dry with a towel that seems dry itself. And washing is simplicity itself and then there is the shock of finding it dry and ready to be used again within hours instead of days like a normal towel.


British trade tokens
British trade tokens

Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars A Wordy Brginning to the Subject, 23 Nov 2014
This review is from: British trade tokens (Hardcover)
From reputation I expected an exhaustive wotk on tokens; I was disappointed. My default position on reference books is "Dont tell me - show me" and there is too much telling and not enough showing in this volume.
With onre hundred and ninety paages and only twentyfour pages of plates plus six pages of line drawings I was left feeling cheated. With less than five items per plate that means less than one hundred illustrated.
It is all very well having the history of a factory or industry, but I want more examples of the tokens they issued.
