TP-Link TL-MR3420 300Mbps 3G/4G Wireless N Router by TP-Link
4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly ok, but..., 1 May 2012
So far:

Compatibility with my 3 dongle (E967): No problem

- iPad over Wireless: OK.
- Old Ubuntu PC over Ethernet cable: OK
- Vista laptop over Ethernet cable: OK
- Same Vista laptop over Wireless: Hopeless.

The latter seems to be a very common Vista problem with many routers, as I discovered during the five hours of Google searches in an unsuccessful attempt to resolve the problem. There seem to be at least four different proposed solutions, some work for some routers, none seems to be working for this one.

I am still trying though, and at least I can connect with a cable, so it's not exactly a tragedy. So far I have tried… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little phone, 20 April 2012
This is the cheapest, and yet probably the best phone I have ever bought. Does exactly what I want it to do, with no superfluous bells and whistles. Dual-SIM functionality is faultless and dead simple. If, like me, all you care about is calls and SMS, this is definitely the phone for you and, for that low price, one cannot go wrong - well done Samsung! Everything worked straight out of the box. The manual is a bit minimal but, really, there isn't much to put in there.

I understand that this series includes some more feature-rich models (with the price increasing proportionally). If this little thing is anything to go by, I would have no doubts about trying another one from this… Read more
BLUE Silicone Skin Case + Bonus PINK Classic Silic&hellip by iZKA®
4.0 out of 5 stars Only one minor gripe, 12 Jan 2011
Using the scroll wheel when covered with a sheet of silicon takes some getting used to, especially in low temperatures. It can be a bit clunky, and you need to use a bit more extra force.

That being said, it is a perfect fit for my 160GB iPod, looks as good in the skin as it does without, protects the iPod very well and for the price, one cannot complain. I have tried quite a few products for my iPod, this is the one I am going to stick to, despite the scrolling issue. Essentially, combined with a transparent screen guard, you can just slip the device into bags and pockets comfortably, no longer need to get precious about it, it's well protected.
