4.0 out of 5 stars WDS, 1 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This the second one that I have used to bridge non-wireless 100Mbit RJ45 equipment with a Wireless Access Point/internet router. My Access point is a Draytek AP 700 running in AP Bridge-WDS mode, and my two Buffalo devices connected using WDS. Like everyone says, they run at a toasty temperature, but I have not had any problems.

Put in batteries the button and that's it synced up and accurate using the UK MSF signal.
It fits in my hand and is small enough to travel with.
Push the top bar and it lights up at night.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I added this to my Toshiba R700 and not I have two USB 3 ports.
Speed is over 100MB/sec read with a fast USB memory stick.
Overall delighted.

Minor Issues: It pulls out of the PC slot easily (before the cable comes out of the port) so extract sticks and cables carefully. Windows 7 complained about over voltage, but Windows 8.1 does not. Can not boot (F12) from USB stick in a port on this device.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value and fast speed, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beware of compatibility with Windows 8.1, the drive goes into sleep mode taking up to a minute to wake.
There is a registry hack which disables sleep on this device. The device ID's for the 64GB drive are VID 0951 and PID 162B. This Microsoft article describes the fix - just do the registry edit using the VID and PID above:
[...]

Once the registry key is in place with Win 8.1, this is a 5* drive giving over 100MB/sec read speed from a £10 USB 3 PC card.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stability, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My broadband link is more stable and that has lead to better throughput under streaming loads (iplayer, etc).
It is easy to fit: remove the old face plate (2 screws) slot this one in and put the screws back in.
You need to sit back and wait a few days for the exchange kit to recognise your improvements.
Try the BBC speed and streaming test (before and after). It made a big difference for me, I now pass all the BBC streaming tests and this is all I have changed.

Good picture quality and clarity, and the built in iplayer works well (better than my Humax FOX iplayer).
I paired it with the Panasonic SC-HTB65EB-S 90W Soundbar, and it is a great combination.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great Sound
Best used with a fibre optic lead to the telly - I did not know when I bought it so needed a trip to curry's
Do measure up, as its a long item. I strapped it vertically to the TV stand which hides it out of the way.
