1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but still a waste of money., 12 Jun. 2015

Twist settings seized up almost immediately ... then it fell apart completely.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth buying., 22 Mar. 2015

Worked really well - for three days. Then it it simply stopped transmitting data. The lights were on but the internet wasn't home. Tried a couple of factory reset and reconnections - no change. Green light on, data going in, nothing coming out. Now winging its way back to Amazon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ineffective., 12 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First impression is that this item is well-made and robust. But the DAB signal strength - with or without USB power - was no better or worse than the basic wire antenna supplied with my wi-fi.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice HiFi shame about the DAB., 10 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall, I really liked this item. It looks classy and the functions work well - except for the radio. I wanted to replace an older cheaper Goodmans unit to get better radio reception. Located in exactly the same place, this was worse - even for FM. DAB just produced NO SIG every time. I tried the included wire aerial, a coax ribbon external and even a specialised DAB antenna. Nothing. reconnected the Goodmans - radio once again. Sadly, I had to return it.

This review is from: Humbrol Work Station (Toy)
Mine arrived with one of the rubber feet missing. Only a small thing but it made the workstation unstable and unusable. Emailed Humbrol straight away to ask for a replacement. It took them FIVE WEEKS to reply to a simple request.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't like Bluetooth? This is for you., 10 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought two of these damned things. Neither is any good. Tried one with a brand new laptop and the other with my 1 yr old PC. Nothing. After installing the software from the CD neither of them can be seen and both computers just report "device unplugged" I would check the instructions if any came with them but there is just a printed backing card. Looked on the Inateck site for an update but selecting the device just leads you to where you can buy more of them. As if that is going to happen.
I should have thought before i bought. I purchased an Inateck usb3.0 pci card recently that gave me four ports slower than my old ones. I can't be bothered to return these dongles. I gave them one star because they don't take up much space in the dustbin.

2.0 out of 5 stars Four for the price of five., 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Four of these seem to work OK but one was a disaster. As soon as I plugged it in up came the "blue screen of death" on my PC and had to reboot in safe mood. Now the stick was as dead as doornail. Four USB drives and one useless piece of plastic doesn't seem that much of a bargain at the price.

I've usually bought Verbatim in the past but ... USB 3.0? More like USB 1.0! Save yourself a few pence and just get a USB 2.0 instead. It will write faster.

1.0 out of 5 stars Attractive looking but ..., 2 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My drive was trouble from the word go. A very poor and sloppy connector meant that the drive kept disappearing from my PC during file transfers. I was suddenly told that the drive didn't exist, then it came back for a spell, then it was off again. Maybe due to the same fault, write speeds from a USB 3.0 port were painfully slow, rarely going above 15 MB/sec. and often chuntering along at only 2 MB/sec.Glad to see the back of it. I'll stick to brand names in future.

1.0 out of 5 stars An expensive way to get another four USB 2.0 ports., 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This card fitted OK and I initially used the drivers on the CD. The problem is that the transfer speed (20-24 Mb/s) is only slightly faster than the old USB 2.0 ports on my HP Win7 64-bit desktop and nowhere near the speeds I get from the USB 3.0 ports on my laptop. I thought it might be the drivers so I tried downloading each of the four sets on the Inateck web site in turn, starting with the newest and working back. None them would install. I just got error messages saying "set up ended prematurely because of an error." Very useful that! So I spent time and money buying four additional slow speed ports that I don't need. Great result.
