Maglus Black Edition - Stylus with replaceable tip&hellip by Maglus
1 of 2 people found the following review helpful
I wanted a replacement for my wife's iPad stylus, a Wacom Bamboo Solo 2, which had proved to have a very poor nib life. After some research I settled on the Maglus. Amazon and the associated seller, Digidave, were posting the black version at a considerably reduced price.

One For All URC7962 Smartcontrol Motion Remote by One For All
When I took delivery of a URC7962 from Amazon I was very pleasantly surprised by the look and feel of this quality product. The tactile feel of the buttons is very good, but I do find the red, green, yellow & blue keys just a fraction on the small side - they are a little insipid in colour too.

Programming of the individual functions, e.g. TV, AMP, STB and DVD are all easy enough. If you have a device that is not listed it can usually be found on the "One for All" UK web site.

The only real problem came for me when I wanted to… Read more
