2.0 out of 5 stars Too much filler, not enough killer!, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A surprisingly disappointing mix from MOS
A few hit tracks, but overall far too much Garage music and late night lounge tunes.
I expect more hits and less misses from MOS.
Shame on you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great in full sun, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works great in full sun!
I was able to fully charge blackberry bold 9900, and two battery packs.
(beware blackberries need a power only cable (see portapow cables), not a standard data cable, or the engineering screen to force AC charging mode)
The blackberry charged from dead to full in an hour or so, and the engineering screen measured charge current at up to 800ma, and usually >650ma which is ace for solar power in the uk.

In overcast conditions the panel did not put out any voltage - evidence of a built in 5v regulator, and thus wouldn't charge.
But it does charge in sunny/cloudy conditions.
I measured the open circuit (no load) voltage at a steady 5volt in full sun, more evidence of a built in regulator - w/o a reg, it would read 6v+ without load.

It also survived a decent rain shower without any problems (just protect the usb socket and whatever it's charging)

Pair this with a battery or two and you're good for summer festivals and camping!

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy pack of goodness, helped fix an Overheating dell laptop, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this pack when cleaning a friends laptop
(their heatsink was completely blocked with fluff and the poor cpu was cooking at it's max TDP until windows choked it [and windows itself] down to a lower and unusable speed)

It was excellent for cleaning the heatsinks off and the artic silver has proved itself excellent.
After I'd put my friends laptop back together, I stess tested it for an hour or so (had to give it back or It'd have run longer) and I can confirm that the heatsink/fan and articsilver combo does a great job of moving the heat and keeping the system running nicely.

The repaired laptop is still going strong!

5.0 out of 5 stars Above my expectations, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these when I'd lost my Sennheiser CX-II 300's which are really great sounding headphones,
so dropping down to this price point £16 I was very surprised at how good they sound at the top and bottom end of the range,
and also suprised at how good the earbuds are - the 'cover' is not some cheap plastic, but good silicone similar to my senns.

Now I've found the sennheisers again, I'm lamenting the lose of these especially as I want to compare them.

Finally, they are fairly good at Noise Isolating, though the sennheiser CX-2 300s are definetely better. (I've used them in my office, and colleagues could hear with these at a lower volume than they could on the sennheisers.)
So listen a bit quieter and you'll save your ears and not annoy people around you!

Also, if you find outside noise and distractions incredibly frustrating these dull off the intensity of it all and block out quite a good bit. When you take them out you'll realise how noisy everyday life is (if you haven't deafened yourself!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great device, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems like a well designed solid device!
I've tested with 3.5 and 2.5 and both at the same time. I've just installed it into a home automation/media centre machine and will continue testing when I am able to get the machine to me haha.

I'd recommend this to others.

I have some reservations about the heat while using both drives, but the power switches mean I can select one or the other.

Note to less technical buyers: it takes
1x Sata power
2x Sata data cables
As sata is serial, it needs 1 per drive.
Also, if you want to be able to do True hot swapping of drives, you need a Sata controller that has the hot swapping feature.
Otherwise your computer will likely lock up - depending on the BIOS on the controller you're using.

This review is from: Mikado Milk 75g (Misc.)
Very pleased with this item so far.
Would recommend to others. If you're looking for a desolder pump, your search is over. Press the order button and be done.
Plus there's a spare tip ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, close to local calibrated weather stations, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite pleased with this product.
Only tested one so far, the other one is in it's sealed packaging, so sometime I may compare the two for drift.

Accuracy is suprisingly good for pressure using the Pi's GPIO i2c and Adafruit Python code.
It does show a fair bit of noise between sample, but I plan to use ema exponantial smoothing which is fairly simple code.
This with an array or a rrdtool rrd dataset would work well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works, gets a bit hot, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems a handy little device, although it gets worryingly hot when enclosed with the pi and 5v power supplies et all.
I would not recommend using it in a box like this.

Need to update when i've done some more testing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far exceeded my expectations, 10 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasn't going to pay for new heads that cost as much as the shaver (which works fine) so these were worth a try.

And what a worthwhile purchase they turned out to be! Not just better than my blunt original shaving heads, but better than i remember the original heads being, giving me a much closer shave that lasts longer as well!

Would buy again.
