1.0 out of 5 stars Limited usability, 11 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this item arrived ahead of the promised delivery date only 3 of the ports actually worked. The USB cable and power cable are too short for any meaningful use.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of the best., 5 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't let this one pass you by, it's an excellent story and not a word is wasted in the telling of Grace's life as a married woman by Grace herself. If that sounds dull then hang on to your hat as this story had me thinking about it when I wasn't reading the book and that is most unusual. What starts off as a nice gentle story gets more disturbing as the story unfolds. Absolutely brilliantly written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy switching between 3 sources into one amplifier, 20 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item took twelve days from purchase to delivery but it was well worth the wait. It has to be continuously powered by the supplied power supply unit to work. I have one amplifier and three units feeding into it but switching those sources is a breeze using the remote control that comes with it. Although the unit is small it can be hidden away; all that is required is for the very small remote sensor to be placed in a position in line of sight of the remote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some practical solutions (hopefully), 4 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted this item to use to scan photographs when visiting family for my family history research. Taking away their precious photos to scan at home is not always convenient especially when there is a distance between you. So I've practised using this handheld scanner for a few days to get the best out of it. I was disappointed with my first attempts because I found that scanned images are not constructed well due to my inability to track across the photo in a consistent manner. So there were obvious deviations in the resulting image, for example vertical lines took on a wavy appearance as did the edge of the photo.
I've overcome this by using the spine of a heavy book to act as a guide for the left hand edge of the scanner. I find I can lean on the book and scan and hold the photo all at the same time and this has removed the imperfections. Heavy downward pressure on the scanner whilst moving across the photo is more often than not all that is required to get a good clean scan.
Of course out in the 'field' one needs to be able to come up with a method that is going to give consistent results as there is no way of knowing until the image is transferred and viewed if you have got it right.
As for the quality of the output. First impressions are the greyscale photos are fine. Colour photos seem over saturated compared with the original. Document colours seem to be desaturated a little. This is of little consequence really as they will be passed through image manipulation software anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for the price., 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price these are phenomenal. I can't quite use them for my intended use, not because of the headphones but a poor output from what I wanted it to connect. When the sender unit is connected to the headphone output of my Panasonic TV they work a treat but connected to my Roberts Dreamtime2 digital radio the output is so weak there is no volume to work with. The range is good I can wander around the house and listen and apart from a few dead spots it works fine, even with the very low volume on the radio, which is turned up to maximum volume.
The FM radio in the headphones works well for those radio stations with a strong signal. I haven't tried it with a computer it's not what I wanted them for, but the in built microphone seems to work well.

5.0 out of 5 stars anywhere with poor lighting. It doesn't matter you'll always be able ..., 30 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a real take anywhere e-reader. Bright sunshine, dark rooms, anywhere with poor lighting. It doesn't matter you'll always be able to read without making any adjustments to your surroundings, just switch on and read. I love the fact I can read and turn pages with just one hand. Held in the right hand a touch on the screen with the thumb and you're onto the next page. No need to mark where you left off it switches on to the page you left it. Don't the meaning of a word? A long press on the word and the dictionary opens up with a definition. On some books where X-Ray is enabled you can refresh your memory about characters in the story, who they are etc.
There's no need to be ever without a book just load them up to your device and they're always there. One sleepless night lying in bed at home I finished my book and felt the need to read some more. I simply connected my Kindle to my wireless internet connection ordered and download a new book within a few minutes and I was reading again without even leaving my bed. Luxury.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story., 30 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 11.22.63 (Kindle Edition)
A tremendously gripping story about a time traveller whose mission is to prevent the assassination of J F Kennedy. It turns out to be so much more than that. At times it is brutal, others tender; it has suspense, it's a book that is difficult to put down. Great story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 1 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I, rather foolishly, ordered one of the many cheap Covers, Swees, which turned out to be very poor. So if you want a decent cover open up your wallet/purse and get a decent Cover. At least this one fits properly when closed, always puts the Kindle Paperwhite to sleep on closure, looks and feels good.

5.0 out of 5 stars This really works, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I live in an are that is very prone to power blackouts so this item has already proved its worth by allowing me to continue working and close down my computer in an orderly fashion. The real jewel in the crown are the three sockets controlled from the Master socket (your computer) such that when the computer is switched off peripherals plugged into these sockets are also shut down thus providing cost savings on electrical power usage.
It has worked well on the 6 incidents so far, 4 blackouts and 2 brownouts. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Price Cheap Product, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well it was cheap and it looks and feels the same. It holds the Kindle Paperwhite very securely and it will protect it from damage. However, the magnetic closure is not that clever and the opening cover on mine was warped so it would not always put the Kindle Paperwhite to sleep. I've managed to straighten it up by manipulating it but this can't be recommended and one shouldn't really have to do this to a brand new product. It will do for now. I spent more money on a cover for my wife's Kindle and it is a far superior product.
