Belkin Impulse Line Slim Back Pack for Upto 17 inc&hellip by Belkin
First of all, not sure why this product shares aggregate reviews with other Belkin products. I think its an attempt to make this product look more popular than it really is. Be warned.

Anyway, I just received the "Belkin Impulse Slim Back Pack for upto 17 laptops (Jet/Cabernet)". My first impression is its large size. It's bigger than I expected it to be, much bigger.

Honestly, it's good. It's well written, concise, sometimes I even laughed out loud. It was… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Received genuine article., 17 April 2013
Having read some of the bad reviews I initially dismissed this seller. However, I noticed that these bad reviews are now 3 years old. Many of the more recent reviews (Mar 2013) have shown more success in receiving the correct items, also I noticed that the item is fulfilled by amazon, so there was less risk.

I decided to give it a shot. I received (as far as I can tell) the genuine article. It's identical in size, shape, and labeling as the original filter that I received with my Samsung fridge. Installation was just as easy as the original and has the push fit clips.

I ran the filter for 5 mins as the instructions stated. The water started off a darker gray colour and… Read more
