AmazonBasics 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub with UK Plug by AmazonBasics
5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 20 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I decided to get a USB port as I tend to have quite a few cables plugged in to my computer, including USBs for my phone, kindle and camera and I thought it would be easier to leave them permanently plugged in rather than swapping cables around. I was slightly surprised to discover (mostly due to my own ignorance) that the port required mains power. The image on this page shows it without the power cable and so I assumed it took power from the computer. It works well though and I've had no issues either installing it (it just plugged straight in to my mac) or using it. My only complaint is that the USB cable on the unit (which connects to the computer) is very short (22cm) which limits you… Read more

This game consists of 3 sprung catapult style player launch pads and a central battery powered character that rotates and tries to catch the play-doh missiles.

We had only limited success with this toy.

In the end all three children abandoned the game and played with the the tubs of play-doh instead. Even if the central part had been working I… Read more

I wasn't sure what to expect from this dog treat can. From the description, I did think it might all come in one lump which you had to tear apart. In fact it's a tin of several pieces. Each piece is about 40mm x 15mm and can either be broken up or given as a treat in one. As I have both a large dog and a small dog, I found this perfect as I broke them in half for the Beagle and gave them whole to the Retriever. They are also long and thin which means they are good for giving to dogs who "snatch" food from hands! They have proved very popular with our dogs and I like the container they come in. Too often treat bags rip and spill, where as this container does the job much better.
