5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorites.. though a bit 'heavy' for running.., 9 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
edit.. As the cable is tangle free (flat, wide cable) they're a bit heavier than my previous ones and I don't rate them as being good for running. Cable is a bit too long to comfortably plug into phone on my arm..

They've replaced my old set of Sony headphones** as my new favorite headphones.. (**which were that good I eventually bought 3 pairs, which was difficult as time went by).
I've never been a fan of these ridiculous dustbin lids that people wear for show and a set of light in-ear headphones has been my personal choice. Great for running (and also for voice conferences with the responsive mic)..
Couple of minor points; a slightly smaller set of rubber inserts would be good (do people really have ears that big - for the largest size) and different cable lengths (for L+R) would mean they could rest on the back of the neck.

Very fast but very small and easy to lose.
I keep mine in my laptop so no problems there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply superb!!!, 22 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic.. Much better than the model that my neighbour lent me to try. It's light & surprisingly powerful and made easy work or the leaves in my back garden; which is great as I have grown to despise the green/brown little fluttering gits.
Can't comment on durability yet as only used it today...

3.0 out of 5 stars An excellent router - with some issues.., 13 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok. With a stable connection, it would be more of a 4.5 - unfortunately, there are too many disconnects.
I've moved to this router from a Draytek 2830vn and the features with this are much better; yes, it's a lot newer.
I initially had some issues (you'll probably read a lot about them) with DSL stability. I upgraded the firmware to the newest version as soon as it arrived but I've continued to have issues with disconnects - though it is better than it once was..
The primary reason I went for this router was Wifi - as in wireless ac. My previous router was Wireless N and with that I occasionally got 120mb/s. With my new router (ac) I get 700-800 mb/s.. It's ridiculous, pretty much Gigabit speeds..
Secondly, this router has a USB 3.0 port. I have an external hard drive plugged in and it's streaming my music, movies etc where I want them.. I will say that the port seems active a lot more than I want it (I have reported this - I want to be able to control when it's on and off on a schedule) but it seems to work fine..
If the line stayed up and didn't disconnect as much, this would be a 5*.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible battery life.., 17 Oct. 2013
These devices have terrible battery life - even when the screen is dimmed.
It takes ages to charge and is about as mobile as a television; basically you need to keep it plugged in.

We sent ours back..

1.0 out of 5 stars EASY LEAK FIX - EDIT.... Looks great but LEAKS around the plastic window., 15 May 2013
Easy fix for the leak.. See end of post for edit..

We've had the kettle for a while now and the kettle has started to leak around the plastic window.
This is apparently a pretty common complaint with Morphy Richards kettles and in my opinion is a pretty serious design flaw.
You should not come down in the morning to see a work-top covered in water from a leaking kettle.

Not recommended at all.. I don't think I will buy any kettle that has different types of material to hold the water. That's just asking for problems..

edit..
Fairly easy fix to repair the leak..
After a bit of research, I found a sealant that is both temperature resistant and safe in contact with food..
It costs about a fiver and works fine (amazon or ebay)...
Order a tube of "DOW CORNING 781 CLEAR ACETOXY SILICONE SEALANT" (you'll need an appropriate 'gun').
Good luck!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the slowest drive I've ever had - but not the fastest either., 10 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not sure about these USB Key drives (8Gb Transcend Jetflash 300). I purchased two for various 'projects'.

Write speed is about 5MB/sec (my hard disks are not a bottleneck).
Read speed isn't bad.. Roughly around the advertised speed of 20MB/s.

These are probably worth the money; but if you want faster performance, I would go for the Patriot XT line of USB drives (I use these as my main USB disk due to their speed - but they are slightly more expensive).
