5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 17 Jan 2012
I was looking at one of the 10 socket towers initially but the postage was a bit much for those so decided to order 2 of these instead. I hadn't actually realised at the time they plug directly into the wall (thought it was a standard extension lead with switches) but it has actually worked out a lot better. We have single plug sockets in our house for some reason so these have proved very useful. The fit perfectly on our walls. Though if your plug socket is very low down near the skirting board or there is something immediately below it they probably won't suit.

Works well when coupled with a USB stick or hard drive. I have a portable 250GB drive that doesn't require a power supply so gets its power from the USB connection of the Cyclone. Togther they take up only a small amount of room in my pack so very handy for bringing away with you as most TVs will have either AV or HDMI connectors.

The player itself works well though the controller is quite small and can be a bit fiddly. There isn't a fancy UI just a file directory listing. That doesn't bother me but might put off some.

Haven't used the it to play music or view photos so can't comment on those. I think it also has a problem viewing files on large drives. Could see… Read more

50m extension cable - gives me 50m of extension. Not much more I can say. :) Works fine though it does feel a bit flimsy, the reel, not the cable. Though it's fine for what it does.
