5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 12 Jun 2012
This is a wonderful item and saved me a lot of money. I bought a new internet enabled TV and a new Sky HD 1TB box. My router is in another room and to buy the suppliers' dongles to connect both boxes would have have cost about 150. Instead, I bought the TP-Link TL-PA211KIT 200Mbps Mini Powerline Ethernet Adapter - Twin Pack and this little box here (8.65 at the time) and connected them up. And Hey! It worked first time. Saved over 100 and then I did the same thing in another room, except this time I only had to buy a TP-Link TL-PA211 200Mbps Mini Powerline Ethernet AdapterRead more

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 Jun 2012
I bought this based on the positive reviews that were posted. The unit installed very easily (I have Win 7 Professional 32 bit)and initially it worked very well and I was very pleased, But after a few months it began to lose contact with my router, firstly about every 10 days or so then more frequently until it was every other day. I tried it in different USB slots but it made no difference. Once when I tried to re-enable it via the device manager I got a BSOD! Other times my machine wouldn't shut down and I got a Microsoft error report. I became very disappointed as I am a TP-Link fan and have had very good experiences with other products I have bought. As soon as I get an alternative… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull and Boring, 23 Nov 2011
The book is well written and the language is lyrical without being overblown or pretentious. However, I found the book somewhat boring: I did not like any of the characters and I found them all pretty dull. The protagonist in particular reminded me of Oliver Twist - he meandered through the novel and rarely initiated any action - things happened to him and he responded. But unlike Oliver Twist there were no colourful characters surrounding him.
I couldn't recommend this book - there are others out there and time is short.
