5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the original if you never used the back-light., 6 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does not have the illuminated-keys-option of the original, but I prefer this version better because e.g. the "source" button is now in the more prominent position (of the back-light button).

Otherwise it is virtually the same e.g. the rubber keys have the same feel and are in the same positions (likewise the hard-plastic keys).

5.0 out of 5 stars A good replacement that works., 3 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This replacement part was actually coloured red, but it is the same size as the original black one and fitted perfectly.

You do not need to dismantle the carb, just squeeze the two "ears" of that nylon-retaining-ring and jiggle it out to free the old-bulb before cleaning the bedding surface and fitting the new one and squeezing in the new retaining ring until those "ears" click into their slots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small, fast, good remote feel and works for both UK and USA DVDs, 2 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived quickly (three days earlier than advertised) and is tiny. Plugged it in, did not bother with any set up, and it immediately played my USA region DVDs (as well as my UK region).

The remote control is nice and chunky with a good feel.

It has a nice fast reaction to the remote control.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's perfectly engineered, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is tiny and light and does not try to do anything clever such as guess that a cell is dead i.e. if a cell "charges" OK in one minute then evidently that cell is no good :)

The charge state is indicated very simply with a little battery-symbol for each cell of four bars that progressively "fill up" and also flash during the main charge and then stay permanently one during the following trickle-charge.

The cell capacity is accommodated automatically so you can "mix and match" (provided they are all nickel-metal-hydride only - that is the only sort this charger is designed for).

5.0 out of 5 stars As bright as the original that it replaced, 23 Jun 2014
This is longer than the original but it *just* fitted with a little loosening/retightening of the fitting's screws.

It appears to be the same luminosity (the mains supply measured 240V for the original halogen bulb).

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly good, as long as you avoid dust specks while fitting, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You need to carefully wipe off any specks of dust before fitting otherwise an impossible-to-remove air bubble will be left.

I found it easier to start the laying-down at the perforated end first (to align the speaker and camera holes correctly) and a few air bubbles appeared at the other end, but you can lift that end again and relay it more carefully to avoid the air bubbles forming without problem.

I expected that sort of problem so I bought two packs, but managed it OK at the second attempt.
