1.0 out of 5 stars Poor build quality - returned for a refund, 2 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can confirm what some other reviewers are saying that the build quality is poor. In my unit the plugs don't lock into the main body properly and just fall out. The good thing about it is that if the case has been built so badly it makes you wonder how bad are the internals. Safety first - it's going back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Will fit 25 litres backpack at most., 13 April 2012
I have a 32 litres backpack. This cover that is supposed to fit up to 40 litres backpacks does not fit. You've been warned.

Kensington Video Chat light for Netbooks
Kensington Video Chat light for Netbooks

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless, 12 April 2012
Pretty nicely made product that doesn't do what it is supposed to. There is hardly any light coming out of this device. Whether you set it to half- or full output that makes hardly any difference. The light is also very focused so you get a blob of brightness surrounded by total darkness. The flexible cord is, well, flexible but it keeps the light in the shape you fancy. But again, it doesn't matter how you adjust your light as you will not be able to see anything anyway. Waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on ExtJS v3, 29 July 2011
This review is from: Ext JS in Action (Paperback)
One other reviewer wrote: "There is major changes in Ext JS v4 which makes this book obsolete!". So he bought wrong book and just because of that downrated it.

It so happens that I have worked with Ext JS v3 for months now and found this book not obsolete but invaluable. When I bought it my knowledge about JavaScript was minimal (this is, however, something this book will not teach you) and I knew nothing at all about ExtJS (this is what the book is about and excels at explaining to you).

I have read the whole book by now and it paid for itself many times over. I was learning from scratch starting with simple widgets and following clear examples and explanations of these examples. Every line of code (available online for download) that represents something new was explained. I really liked a clear explanation of event flow within the DOM in a chapter that was more about how stuff works under the hood rather than just how to build things. As I was covering chapters within the book I was able to create more complex structures. Finally the book gave explanation of concepts like drag'n'drop, plugins, or how to make your code reusable. Many of the features I haven't put into use yet but when the time comes I will know where to find them.

As for extras, you get electronic versions of this book in pdf, epub and mobi formats. There is also a forum where you can meet the author and discuss problems you may encounter. Actually it is quite full of knowledge so the answers to most of your questions are probably already there, it was like that in my case anyway. One necessary extras is the errata, get it (it is on the forum) before you read the book, will save you time and hair.

This is one of the best books I have read (and read in full, a rarity) and I'm looking forward to buying ExtJS v4 edition of it. I hope there will be one...

HyperX DataTraveler (4GB) Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Flash Drive
HyperX DataTraveler (4GB) Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Flash Drive

2.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic performance, 4 Feb. 2009
Tested and compared to similarly priced Sandisk Cruzer Contour Extreme 4GB. Very poor results - it loses everywhere apart from reading very large files where the results are similar. I also loses with cheap Peak Xtreme2 4GB when writing or reading small files and this is the area where it is particularily disappointing.

If this was a normal pendrive (and cheaper) then it would be ok but it is advertised as a performance one (and was expensive) in which case I would not recommend this product.
