Got this for the 5, I am using it with a cheap £2.00 cable and I have to say it is perfect. My Iphone has a case on and it still fits in the cradle. Sits at the side of my bed and the phone is fully charged every morning, Highly recommended for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nexus case, 26 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would agree with many of the reviews here. It is a nice sturdy case and is slim enough not to add much bulk to the phone. The cover folds completely back so doesn't get in the way. My only wish would be for a small hole over the notification LED so I could see it when the cover is closed, but other than that it is great value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning to Potential users, 9 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had one of these which failed after a month and for the price I couldn't be bothered sending back and just ordered another, After one use I plugged my card into it with 2 weeks holiday photographs on and the card appeared to have thousands of random files and was unable to open any of the photographs.
Luckily a checkdisk of the card on a laptop with a built in sd card reader recovered 60% of them but the rest were lost.
I assumed that it was the SD card that was faulty so ordered a new one and threw the old one away (didn't want to risk losing any more photographs), after another weekend away and browsing the photo's on the camera with no problem, I used the reader and the same thing happened, only this time I was only able to recover 5 pictures.
After testing I can recreate the fault at will by putting a perfectly good working card into this piece of junk and it immediately and irreversibly corrupts the file system.
If you value your pictures, don't skimp with this pile of junk and spend a little extra on a decent quality one. Also it's branded as Fuji but clearly it's just a generic Chinese import with a label printed on.

Worked perfectly for about 6 months then stopped working without warning mid use. Not worth sending back for price but just be aware you get what you pay for

5.0 out of 5 stars USB 3 Caddy, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price it is a good little caddy, Screws and cable supplied.Not a bad looking little unit.
Not as fast as my other USB3 drive (averaging about 95/sec when copying a selection of 3mb jpg's and a singly 300mb video) but much faster than the USB2 it replaced so for the price I cannot complain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sandisk Ultra Plus, 14 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second one I have purchased. I was in the market for an SSD and came across a review for this model in PC Pro Mag, They recommended it so I purchased it on that basis.
To say I wasn't disappointed was an understatement, my first went in a HP 8460p Core I5, it reduced the boot time to under 7 seconds, with a clean image on it's original internal hard disk it would normally take approx 1 minute, and I thought that was fast!!.
If you want an instant speed boost for a flagging pc, this will be the best upgrade you will ever make, I can't recommend a SSD highly enough, and this one in particular.
I cannot think of any other component on your PC that users can upgrade that could have such a devastating effect on performance that this.
Get one, and it will be the best upgrade you will ever make.

Top Gear - Richard Hammond Uncovered: The DVD Special
Top Gear - Richard Hammond Uncovered: The DVD Special
Dvd ~ Richard Hammond
Offered by mrtopseller
Price: £2.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest DVD Ever, 9 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I hoped that it was a behind the scenes look at Top Gear, but it's really just Richard Hammond messing about pretending that's how things are done on Top Gear with his tongue firmly in his cheek.
I've really enjoyed some of the other programs he has fronted, especially Engineering Connections, but this feels like an attempt to make a few quid banging out a DVD.
If you are looking for a DVD that shows behind the scenes, then this is probably not for you, that said it was under £2,00 so not the end of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works a treat, 5 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can only echo the other reviews on here, it arrived quickly and well packaged, and for one touch scanning of photo's up to 6 * 4 it works perfectly.
As others have said, you don't really need to use the supplied sleeves, and it's perfect for sitting at the side of you and scanning away whilst you watch tv etc.
It scans to a supplied SD card, with the only fault I have found is that it occasionally refuses to feed in a picture, maybe once every 50 pictures or so, but a quick reset fixes it, and that only takes 10 seconds.
For the price I can't fault it. The scan quality is more that adequate for most snaps, however if you put a high quality photo through you will see a degradation, however for £29 I expect that.
If you want top quality scans I would look elsewhere but if you just want to get a box of old holiday pictures digitised, then you can't go far wrong with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain !, 5 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived within 3 days. I need a tester for very infrequent use, this one works perfectly, tested with a good cable and a deliberate faulty one, picked up which pairs were at fault.
Both ends slot together so it stores easily, the instructions are ok but if it's not difficult to work out.
What can I say, a bargain...

5.0 out of 5 stars 10W T4 (352mm), 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased this as a replacement as they are slightly shorter than the standard ones that seem to be about.
I usually get the replacements from Wickes but they seem to always be out of stock.
The lamp arrived quickly and was extremly well packaged. It is a direct replacement on a long run and is indistinguishable from the others that have been fitted for over a year.
