1.0 out of 5 stars WIFI issues are well documented in Forums, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 0:10 Mins

This has been a disaster !
As soon as the unit was connected into my network it caused the router to restart and subsequently every 10 minutes or so. I have a BT Business Hub 3 router and at first I thought it was the router, so I replaced it with a spare unit but found the same issues.
Having sat and watched the router closely it became obvious that the WIFI was being interfered with and that was causing the router to reset - sometimes back to factory settings.

I then researched the issue and found plenty of BT and Amazon forums describing the same issues. So following advise from others I have tried configuring the router differently, disabling the 'Smart Wireless' options and manually selecting a WIFI channel. In fact I tried all 12 channels available but the Fire TV box still caused the router to reset. I also tried different combinations of WEP, WPA, WPA2 etc but the issue persists. Also tried setting the router to 802.11 b/g and 802.11 b/g/n combinations but the issue still persists.

I also wired the Fire TV box to the router (but I assume the Fire TV box WIFI is still active).

The only thing that stops the router from resetting is switching the Amazon Fire TV box off.

I am therefore returning the item :(

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad as a starter plane, 8 July 2014

This review is from: Nikko Phoenix Stunt Plane (Toy)
Not bad as a starter plane. Impossible to fly in any sort of wind though. Also after a while, the tail servo started to whine and doesn't work properly :(

Great meter and loads of features. I like the subtle LEDs on the connectors which tell you where to plug the leads for what function !

4.0 out of 5 stars Great watch - shame about the strap, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Super looking watch with great features. Took just a few minutes to synch it to the time signal and away it went ! Very pleased with it.
Doesn't get 5 stars because of the strap which is a bit plastic. I had to trim some sections off the strap to make it fit my wrist. The clasp doesn't seem very sturdy - such that I would go swimming with it on although it is WR to 200m. I am going to fit a black velcro strap which will make the watch feel far more secure when running or swimming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 3 Aug. 2013

I bought a screen protector in my local market and they charged me £3.50 - for one item !

This is obviously much better value for money and fits the phone perfectly.
