BT Home Hub 4R N600 Dual Band Wireless ADSL Modem &hellip by BT
3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay, 16 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The unit is sleek in appearance, promoting an efficient feel. However, I don't feel that it provides any better service than the standard BT Home Hub 3.0 that I had before. I have already expanded wireless capacity with BT WiFi Hotspot extenders and this certainly added nothing to the network I had already created. On the plus side, with a BT service it was incredibly easy to set up, and definitely easier to connect my printer wirelessly. Not bad, but think twice if your existing network could be expanded with something like a BT WiFi Hotspot, and there are several on the market.
Mr Beams The MB312 Motion-Sensing Light-Sensing Ba&hellip by Mr Beams
4.0 out of 5 stars Good tool, 16 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are really easy to set up. A lot of this type of light are very big and indiscreet. I was particularly pleased that these are small and neat. I use one to light up our bin area when I take rubbish out at night and the other to light the side passage by the house. They work very efficiently for both tasks. If I have one reservation it is that the light is not particularly bright, it certainly does not reach as far as the description indicates. For all that, I like them.
Gro 2-in-1 Night Light with Bayonet Fitting by The Gro Company
3.0 out of 5 stars Clever idea ... ish, 16 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a gentle night light that plugs into any standard bayonet fitting, so if yours is not a standard fitting, it won't be for you. The lamp is on the chunky side, but is effective. To maintain the dim light, switch once, to have a standard light, switch twice. In spite of the good idea, I think there are other alternatives around that are as good if not better. I think it is overpriced for what it does.
