5.0 out of 5 stars Good solution if you do not need a bulky socket, 8 April 2016

Good solution if you do not need a bulky socket. The switch also means it won't run your battery down at all.

Much more efficient than the old BT things I was using. Never drops a signal and this is installed in a shed down the garden at the end of an extension spur.

This little beastie plugs straight onto my motopressor pump so I can always check my bike tyres when I am touring. Robustly made and easy to read. Lives in my tank bag.

I am very security conscious as I know what the hassle of an insurance claim can be like. This lock is easy to use and looks the business. It is approved by insurance companies so should get you a discount. The U bar only just goes through the holes in my VFR800's disc so check before you buy. I don't see the point of the metal carry bracket - the lock lives in my tank bag when not in use. Of course, no lock will stop a determined thief but this should discourage the casual scrote.

This does what it says on the tin. Out the box, plug it in and download my stuff onto it. Potential problem? It's so small I forget where I left it!

Lovely fit. Good grip. On off button takes more effort to prod but that means no unfortunate trouser errors and photos of your pocket.

This review is from: Harry's War (Kindle Edition)
This is a pretty awesome read. When I finished it I felt I had really been there and my respect for those soldiers was unbounded. Talk about mud, blood and bullets!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does it all!, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK, well I am not so savvy with IT these days but decided that with a house full of computers, netbooks, smart phones etc we ought to update from our trusty Epson DX4000. Room being tight the ability to stick this wireless device anywhere really appealed.
Setting up was not quite so easy as I though it would be - you need to connect to a computer to install the software and get the printer recognised so if you have no USB cable you are going to be irritated to say the least. I connected it fairly straightforwardly to the Windows 8 machine after the computer went to the Epson site and downloaded the drivers it needed. Once connected it printed beautifully - and quickly!
Next I tried to connect to a netbook running a cutdown version of Windows 7 and a proper laptop with Windows 7. The laptop was happy to take the CD and install everything from that but the netbook has no CD drive so it took a while longer and many error messages to get it working but in the end it did.
The big surprise for me was how easily the printer was detected, software sought and installed on my little netbook running Ubuntu Linux. About five minutes max!
The remote printing by email looks neat - the printer has its own email address via Epson and I presume it prints emails or attachments or whatever. Yet to try it out.
The only negative to the printer - and one I think it shares with other makes - is that using non official ink invalidates your warranty and may well screw the printer. The cartridges are electronically tagged.
So, five stars for now but if it goes wrong tomorrow I'll be sure to update!
