Casio Unisex Quartz Watch with Grey Dial Digital D&hellip Casio
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
I have owned Casio digital watches (all model F-91W) for about 20 years - this is testament to the basic reliability of that watch and its similar models - but the resin straps always crack. The watches become unusable despite their continuing to display the correct time.

So I bought this model, which is very similar to F-91W, to solve the strap problem - it's stainless steel. The strap clip seems secure enough, but the passage of time will tell. I'm pleased that this version has a countdown timer, but slightly miffed that there seems to be no button to instantly zeroise it.

Another advantage - the watch is compact and unobtrusive, unlike some of the clunky other… Read more

2GB, 204-pin SODIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 memory module by Crucial
After buying my Asus EeePC 101PX a year ago for use as a wordprocessor I began to think that it might be worth upgrading the pre-loaded Office 2010 Starter to a full version. I assumed that it would be a good idea to increase the RAM from 1 to 2 Gb as a preliminary step. Therefore I bought this product.

The instructions for replacing the existing RAM are fairly meagre and it took a few mins to work out how to pull it out. Carefully angle aside the two side plastic retainers and pull the RAM card slightly up and out. The new RAM could be installed very easily - just a push fit.

The new RAM registers in the system info as 2 GB but startup seems no faster than before. I… Read more
