5.0 out of 5 stars No Slouch, 22 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This drive will work with both Macs and Windows out of the box. The drive comes pre-formatted with 2TB and 1TB partitions both formatted to FAT32. I have formatted the 2TB partition to NTFS and left the 1 TB partition as FAT32. Really impressed with the data transfer speeds of this drive, much faster than other drives of a similar spec. The supplied USB 3 cable is a little short,(600mm end to end) I use a USB 3 extension cable. (If you decide to get a longer cable the type you need is USB 3.0 Type A Male to B Male Cable.) Overall am impressed with this external hard drive, it is no slouch and have found Freecom products to be very reliable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Convenient little Device, 21 Sept. 2014
This is a standalone 4 port USB 3 Hub with no separate charge input. It is backward compatible with USB 2, but if you plug it into a USB port on your computer then USB 2 is what the hub will become. The difference being USB 2 has a current of 500mA Where USB 3 has 900mA. With there being no external power source on this hub, you will be able to use all four ports up to a total power draw of 900mA for all the devices combined. As a rough guide, a mouse consumes 100mA, a Gaming Keyboard 500mA and a standalone USB external hard drive (one that does not have an external power supply) can draw the full 900mA. I use this 4 port USB 3 Hub as an extension for my Desktop computer with the USB 3 port on the rear. It is small and compact and sits nicely on my desk. Generally I only plug one USB device in at a time, mostly my USB 3 external hard drive, but have had no issues with 2 ports occupied with USB 3 Flash drives at the same time as my USB 3 hard drive. The Hub does not serve as a charging device, so forget about using this to charge your iPhone or whatever.

A handy little pouch to keep your SD cards in. The pouch comes with smaller pockets for the micro sd cards and larger pockets for the full size SD cards, Nice and compact, fits in my pocket with ease.

5.0 out of 5 stars phenomenal performance from a reliable brand, 15 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to upgrade a Windows 7 Dell 1545 laptop standard hard drive. The difference in start up and shut down times is incredible, not to mention that the laptop feels very snappy to use, it's a lot faster now than it was when it was new. Of course I did some research on which Solid State Drive I decided to get, it was a close call between Crucial and Samsung for the reliability of their drives, Crucial won on price. The difference in performance is phenomenal and given the laptop a complete new lease of life.

These plastic tags seem to stick better and are certainly a lot more durable than the paper versions. The black lettering on yellow certainly stands out.

5.0 out of 5 stars keyboard that is a joy to use, 15 Aug. 2014
If you type a lot you are going to love this keyboard. The Membrane tactile switches give comfort to your fingers, almost 'noiseless' and the keys are so smooth to work on, hours of coding or gaming won't leave you tired, this keyboard is a joy to use, nice smooth typing.
This keyboard seems to be compatible with just about anything; it is certainly compatible with Windows 8.1/8/7/Vista/XP/2000/98 and IBM PC's I am typing this on a Windows 7 64bit Computer.
This one has a PS2 interface, I do know you can get this keyboard with a USB interface
The keyboard dimensions are: Length: 445mm Width: 146mm Height: 25mm (NB it does have two feet at the back to prop it up at an angle) Not too obvious in the picture, but standard UK keyboard layout with numeric keys on the right, there is a small moon button in between which is a one-touch mode to make the keyboard sleep and wake up. And there is also the standard layout of F1 to F12 function keys across the top. It has everything a good keyboard should have; the only thing it doesn't have is the bells and whistles of Media Player keys for example.
Overall this is a light weight and slender keyboard that is a joy to use. Easily worth 5 stars and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this keyboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives a nice 'Blast' of air, 12 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gives a nice 'Blast' of air to really blow out the dust. The 'Blasts' are best used in short bursts, I use 2 of these when cleaning out my air vent fans, and swap over when the pressure depletes. It does take a little while for the can to get back to ambient temperature and the full pressure to come back, but these air dusters make short work of dislodging dust on my air vent fans, Bathroom one takes around 30 seconds and it's as clean as a whistle with a couple of blasts of air from these
