5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to assemble, 19 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bag arrived quickly with a pair of gloves. Easy to assemble. Filled with water (siphoned out of a bucket through a pipe). The rubber bung isn't 100% watertight and dribbles slightly when the bag is hit but easily fixed with a smear of silicone sealant.
Bag works well. Feels like it will take a lot of punishment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Use it and keep using it, 19 May 2014
Started putting Millers in the tank when my car had 40k or so on the clock. 8 years on and at 170k and still no sign of the usual injector or turbo problems at this age and mileage. In fact, she's never, ever missed a beat.
Just changing the car for a newer one. I'll be using Millers in that one too.
Use with Supermarket fuel and it gives you the same as ultimate or super plus fuel, only much cheaper.

Someone posted to use it with some ultimate fuel. This is incorrect. Ultimate is simply stock diesel (all diesel, whoever sells it, comes from the same tank) only with good additives. Supermarket fuel simply has less and cheaper additives. The base fuel is the same stuff. Millers is an equivalent or better additive than ultimate so there's no point using with expensive fuel. Use supermarket fuel and spend part of the saving on Millers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revives an older computer, 24 Jan 2014
Macbook Pro Early 2011 13" I7.
Like most Apple product, even after 3 years, it's still pretty quick in its own right and has many years of valuable service left.

However, nothings perfect. I was experiencing the spinning circle for 10 secs or so when loading iTunes or iPhoto and when I started windows (running in a VMware fusion VM) it took quite a while before it was usable. As I use VM's a lot, (Linux and Windows) and often several at the same time, this was becoming my biggest gripe.
I've been considering an SSD for some time, but the choice has been spend a lot of money or else live with less disk space. I didn't like either so I've held off until now. As an equivalent size SSD is now available for around £200, and speeds have increased recently too, I decided to take the plunge. It was a toss up between this and the samsung evo, but I read reviews that said whilst this was slightly (but unnoticeably) slower, it had a more resilient controller.

I took an external USB2 drive apart, replaced the disk with the M500 and plugged it into a USB port. I then used disk utility to format the new drive. And finally used carbon copy cloner (free version) to clone the internal drive.
4 hours later, I opened the macbook, swapped the internal drive for the M500 (easy 5 min job) and rebooted. Then all you need to do it run up the startup disk utility and tell it your boot drive has changed.
Now, cold boots are very fast, iTunes starts instantly and resuming a suspended windows 7 VM, from clicking on the VMWare icon to using Windows takes only 20 seconds!.

Putting in an SSD is one of the biggest performance improving upgrades you can make, and now at £200 for a direct replacement 480Gb drive, it makes an awful lot of sense.
