5V Tascam PS-P520 PSU part power supply replacement adaptor
5V Tascam PS-P520 PSU part power supply replacement adaptor

3.0 out of 5 stars work with TASCAM DP-008EX, 25 Jun 2014
I bought this as a low-cost alternative to the official tascam power supply for a DP-008EX.
It appears well made and the tascam functions OK when using it.

3.0 out of 5 stars worked but slow for me, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This did work with the raspbian distro on my raspberry pi as described but the transfers speeds I see are dreadful and bursty. I have never seen above 1.5Mb/s with this dongle. An alternative dongle with a full size antenna is now giving me much better connection robustness and transfer speed.

4.0 out of 5 stars works well with Raspberry PI, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this to replace a functional (but very slow) micro wifi USB dongle in use on my raspberry pi. At first I couldn't get it to connect using the existing WLAN network configuration so I check the driver was installed (ralink-firmware package) - and it was, then re-did the wifi configuration using wicd rather than NetworkManager/wpa_supplicant. Bingo, blue light on the dongle (very useful) showing a link was up and all was good. Some basic speed tests showed > 23Mb/s to my wireless-N TPlink router.
With the full-sized antenna the range and signal was much improved and detected every network in the neighborhood with a strong signal.

5.0 out of 5 stars burns nicely, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to allow me to burn m-disc DVDs and blu-rays,
I have now burned many DVD-R, DVD-RW, CDR, CDRW and M-DISC DVD-R without problems.
I think 1 failure in 15 burns but that was a cheap DVD-R.
I'm waiting to try M-DISC BD-R when they come available.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than basic antenna, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used this to increase the range of my hi-power tp-link router down the garden. The range did increase by about 25% beyond what I acheived with the default 4inch antenna

3.0 out of 5 stars works with Panasonic viera TV, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap and cheerful. It works with my raspberry pi but doesn't always come up plug-and-play. Sometimes I need to reboot the computer to get it to be recognised.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but doesn't do some things I expected, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works as a multi-way hub but will not recharge my iPhone4 unless also connected to a computer. I think the iPhone requires a valid USB host to be indicated, no just power.
Does power my Raspberry Pi and peripherals happily via the power-only socket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice clear simple desk phone, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Solid, smart, with an easy to read display and simple to use. Nice load speaker and the hands-free mic gives a clear voice at the other end (apparently). I'd recommend it for a simple desk phone.
It doesn't pickup DTMF tones given through the speak (e.g. from a smartphone dialer app) which is a shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives good voltage even in overcast conditions, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well made. It appears pretty tough and would probably survive in rain but I've not tried it yet,
The pockets are big enough to hold good sized phone in each.

5.0 out of 5 stars charge and feed together, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does exactly what I wanted. Combined it with an 11W solar panel it will power my raspberry pi whilst topping up charge from the panel. When the power drops too low, the PI switches off and the battery keeps charging. When the charge is high enough (or the power from the panel is enough for both) then the PI switches back on,
Brilliant.
