Black USB Bluetooth Music Audio Stereo Receiver for Car AUX IN Home Speaker headphone By FamilyMall
Offered by FamilyMall (8-23 shipping days)
Price: £3.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does the job well - and just worked. However I also have a Logitech bluetooth receiver (cost £25) and this one doesn't match it for audio quality. The bass response in not particularly good and the clarity is not quite as good. Mind you I probably only notice because I use it to play music from my computer on the (pretty decent) home hi-fi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book as I was struggling to get to grips with Processing using online help and tutorials. I have a lot of C experience and this book was just about perfect for covering all the necessary stuff to move from C. If you didn't know C that wouldn't be a problem but I would imagine some of the syntax and concepts might take longer to grasp. For me the section on interfacing Processing to Arduino via serial was particularly useful (although a bit brief).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and small, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works as expected on Firewire 800 (MAC). Seems fast and quite neat in size. Also like the pouch to store it in that came with it. Gets quite warm in use but not a problem.

Does just as expected. Bought to replace an older 85Mb version but with a second 85Mb still on the mains network. No problems with having both working on the same mains ring and noticeable speed up on this version.

Very pleased with these. They are thinner than I've had before yet still perfectly easy to thread under a bridge. The storage container is very useful and works well. Perhaps a bit expensive which is the only reason I didn't give 5 stars.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works as expected. I like the auto ranging and the min/max option. Good clear display. Not much more to say really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good replacement, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace the one that had broken on my router. Its just the same as the old one - it collects some, but not all, of the dust and its quite flimsy plastic so will probably break at some point in the future like the last one did. But as a like for like replacement its what I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as the cellular function on our iPad has stopped working (1st gen). Much cheaper than buying a new iPad and with the my3 sim cards cheaper to run too. Works more reliably and faster than the iPad cellular (which to be fair might be more to do with moving from orange to 3). Just turned it on, typed the password into the iPad and it worked.

4.0 out of 5 stars Salus RT500RF, 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No problems installing this, and no problems with the RF range (through 2 walls). As with all programmable controllers there is a lot of button pushing to program all the time slots and their temperature values. I don't find the short set of instructions printed on the inside of the remote flap helpful as they are too difficult to read and I still do not find the "set" and "select" button labels very intuitive but programming aside we have found this unit to do exactly what we wanted to and for a pretty good price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rejuvenated phone, 9 Jan 2012
My wife's KS360 was lasting less and less time on each charge (even though only a couple of years old). Bought this battery to replace the old one and now it works like new again.
