5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic product, 14 Dec 2014
Please note that this is a review of the Inateck BK1003E keyboard. A number of reviews on this page appear to be for older models that require batteries.

This Inateck keyboard is designed to link via Bluetooth to a variety of devices including phones, tablets and smart TV’s. The keyboard is relatively small, being just under 30cm in length but contains full size keys. The keyboard has a chrome finish on the back and is thicker at the top to provide a slope for typing. The keys are responsive and whole keyboard is easy to type on.
The keyboard is powered via a rechargeable lithium battery. The keyboard comes with a USB to micro USB lead to charge the device. A 200mA battery should provide a very significant amount of use. I would expect months of use per charge but I have not had the keyboard long enough to testify to this.

To use the device you need to pair it first. Simply turn on Bluetooth, locate the keyboard and follow the instructions. The whole process takes about a minute and you are ready to go. The typing speed is impressive. I cannot see any lag between me typing and the text appearing on screen.

So far I have linked the device with Motorola phone, a nexus tablet and a Sony smart TV. It works flawlessly with all three. It is ideal for typing emails, texts and editing documents. It is particularly useful for use with my smart phone. In the past I have gone to get my laptop rather than reply to emails on my phone, as I find the onscreen keyboard to difficult to use for anything more than a couple of lines. However, with the keyboard you can type extended emails without any difficulties. It is also useful for searching video on demand content on the smart TV.

Overall, I have been very impressed with this keyboard, and at the current price of less than £15 it represents excellent value.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good quality accessory, 11 Dec 2014
The iClever nunchuk and controller are made out of a solid feeling white plastic. The controllers fit well in the hand and a reasonably light weight. It should be noted that the controller is a little sensitive and does take a little time to get used to. However, once you are accustomed to it this controller is easy to use and can be used with a range of different games.

The controller is relatively straightforward to set up – essentially plug and play. The buttons are intuitive and the whole set up is easy to use. However, no instructions were provided with the product. This is a little disappointing. In the event of difficulties you would have no idea if the product was faulty or you had incorrectly set it up.

Overall, this is a nice product well worth the money. However, it could be enhanced by the inclusion of a simple instruction booklet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good case at a reasonable price, 4 Dec 2014
This Inateck case is perfect protection for portable hard drives or 2.5” sata hard drives. The case is made of a water resistant material, and is light weight. Inside the case contains an elastic strip to hold the hard drive in place and a mesh net to store small accessories such a USB cables, memory cards etc.

I have tried both an older Hitachi drive and a Western Digital drive in the case. Both fit comfortably. The case is fastened with a sturdy zip and the finish on the case is non slip.

Overall, a good case at a reasonable price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value and Functional, 29 Nov 2014
This iClever product is design to hold an apple product, charge it and link it via an FM transmission to your car radio. I have a 7th Generation iPod classic, a great device but like all iPod classics so far it does not feature Bluetooth. This makes it difficult to connect to the car radio system. Admittedly I could just use my phone but on longer journeys I appreciate the greater range of music that the storage capacity of the iPod provides.

To connect the iPod classic to a car radio you basically have three options.

1. A jack to jack aux cable, providing you have an aux in port.
2. A Bluetooth transmitter, which plugs into the iPod headphone socket and then transmits the signal via Bluetooth. Obviously you need a car with Bluetooth to make use of this option.
3. Transmit the signal via FM to the car radio.

This device does the third of these, making it compactable with any car which has a cigarette lighter socket and a radio. For older vehicles it may be the only way to connect an iPod to the radio.

The device features a stand which plugs into the cigarette lighter socket and a cradle to hold the iPod or similar device. The iPod can also plug into the cradle allowing to charge. The only difficulty is aligning the frequency of the transmitter and the radio, but to be honest this is simply a couple of minutes of trial and error to get the pair aligned. Once aligned they should stay aligned, providing you do not retune the radio.

The stand looks ok in the car and it provides a useful place to hold the iPod.

Overall, a good and relatively inexpensive way to connect an apple device to a car radio if Bluetooth is not available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Accurate, 27 Nov 2014
This is a small scale designed for weighing jewellery or other light items. The scale is very precise, with reading down to a 100th of a gram. The scale comes with a case that protects the device when not in use and 2 AA batteries.

The display is clear and easy to read and the scale is simple to use. I have been using it for weighing out spices for cooking. I enjoy cooking Indian and SE Asian foods and enjoy experimenting with spices. However, my add it and see how it goes approach has led me astray from time to time. This scale allows me to carefully measure how much of each spice I am adding and then adjust on the next occasion.

Overall a useful and inexpensive item.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Cable, 27 Nov 2014
This iClever charge and Sync Cable is designed to be used with a wide range of Apple devices. It works both as a charging cable and as a data cable. So far I have used it with an ipod nano and an ipad.

As a lead for an iPod the iclever cable works but offers no real advantages over the shorter cable apple provide; other than being significantly cheaper than the apple product as a replacement cable.

However, it is with the iPad that the cable comes into its own. If like me you frequently forget to charge you iPad until you want it then this cable is perfect. The extra length allows you to sit on the sofa and connect the device to a plug socket. The apple lead provided is simply not long enough to do this – this lead is.

A second use is to connect the lead to a smart TV. We have a smart TV but unfortunately the apps available are limited to the BBC iPlayer and a host of channels I infrequently watch. By attaching your iPad to the TV you can stream a much wider range of content – including all of the major catch up TV services, Netflix, YouTube and Amazon prime video. In addition you can use the keyboard on the iPad to search for content rather than the somewhat clumsy remote control on screen system. An additional bouns as that with a cable length of 1.8m you can do all this from the comfort of the sofa.

Overall, a useful accessory for an iPad at a very good price.

This armband is designed specifically for the iphone 6. The armband consists of two sections. A case for the phone and a clip that the case slides into. The clip holds the phone firmly in place and armband is very light weight. The clip does not obstruct any of the buttons on the iphone, however they are a little difficult to operate at the angle the armband is intended to worn at. Fortunately, the case and clip system makes it easy to remove and replace the phone if you need to.

Further, the arm band adjusts easily is comfortable to wear.

Overall, the product does exactly what it is meant to do and does it well.

This is a high speed USB 3.0 cable designed to connect a standard USB port to a male micro B port, as used on some of the latest Samsung products. The cable can be used to charge your device or as a data transfer cable to access content. It can also be used to connect your device to a TV with a USB port. This is useful if you want to stream video to the TV rather than watch it on the smaller screen of the device.

The quality of the cable is excellent. The gold plated connectors provide an excellent fit and the cable is extremely flexible. The transfer speeds are also excellent providing both devices support USB 3.0. The manufacturer states speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps, whilst I cannot confirm that this figure is accurate, I am able to say that transfer speeds are very fast indeed, with 2 GB mkv (HD TV files) moving almost instantaneously.

Overall a very good product, but one with a limited market at the moment given the small number of devices making use of this particular connection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great design, with plenty of sticking power, 25 Nov 2014
This Montar car mount, like many others, is designed to fix to either the dashboard or windscreen. I have previously had a couple of these mounts and found that they are constantly falling off as you are driving. However, given the level of grip that this Montar mount provides I don’t think that will be a problem in this case.

The phone holder provides an excellent hold on the phone, my phone has a 4.7” screen and the fit is excellent. However, the device can take a range of phones up to a screen size of 5.3”. The phone holder will also rotate allowing you to use your phone in landscape mode. This is ideal if you want to use your phone as a Sat Nav. The design of the product is also good with a sleek black stand and a red lining to the phone holder.

Overall, I have been very impressed with the device. It is not the cheapest on the market but the fact that it doesn’t constantly fall off, in my view makes it worth the extra money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Little Light, 24 Nov 2014
This Oxy Led light is solar powered, and is ideal for use in areas where you cannot run power cables. The light provides a good level of illumination; it is not as bright as many of the floodlights people use, but is more than sufficient to avoid steps or other objects in the garden.

The design is rather stylish and the light fixes to the wall using a single screw that you insert and then hang the light onto. In fact the unit is so light I imagine it would happily hang on a fence post or similar providing you can get a good fix on the screw.

In terms of the design the light is compact and has a sleek modern look. The case appears to be well made and despite torrential rain over the weekend I can see no sign that it has penetrated into the unit. The unit is happily charging up during the day and provides low level illumination throughout the evening. This intensifies when the PIR is tripped.

Overall, I have been very impressed by this unit and it has been a welcome addition to our garden.
