Bought these to install a bigger hard drive in a Macbook pro, they feel very good quality, did the job asked of them and will come in handy for other jobs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job!, 2 Feb. 2012
Ordered to clone my existing hard drive in my laptop to a 1TB hard drive and then to house it when I had cloned and installed the bigger hard drive.

In the technical Details it states 'It supports 2.5" SATA Hard Drives any speed up to 500GB Thickness 9.5mm' but thought for the price would give it a go with a 1TB drive, worked fine for the cloning with no power issues and now works fine with my old 250gb hard drive. Does the same job as the branded enclosures some of which cost up to ten times as much.

Easy to set up, had the hard drive installed and fixed in place within a couple of minutes,no drivers needed once connected to my computer.

I have seen on some other reviews complaints about the screws not fitting properly and being hard to secure, I didn't have any of these problems and the supplied screwdriver was adequate.

Overall very happy with the enclosure, it did the job I needed it for and will continue to be used for weekly backups so I'll see how it goes long term.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Macbook Pro 15" Mid 2009, 2 Feb. 2012
I was looking for a hard drive for my Mid 2009 Macbook Pro to replace the 250gb hard drive which was getting a bit low on space. Initially looking for a 500gb drive but came across this 1TB one and for the price you can't go wrong.

Look online and there are plenty of guides instructing how to clone and install the drive yourself. I used freeware 'carbon copy cloner'.

If you can follow basic instructions for both software and hardware it is very simple to do and not worth sending away for one of the 'specialist' companies to do it for you, although to make it simpler I would recommend purchasing a USB 2.0 SATA hard drive caddy and also a set of TORX screwdrivers

Once setup and installed there is no noticeable difference in battery life and my Macbook seems quicker in starting up and opening and running programs etc, SATA runs at 3gb, no compatibility issues and very quiet, Also have it dual booting with Windows 7 with no problems.

All in all a very good Hard drive, very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality Knife., 1 Jan. 2012
As with all Wusthof knifes this is a very good quality knife. I was a butcher for a 14 years, at the time I didn't know about Wusthof knifes and we always used Victorinox, which are very good knifes but not a patch on these.
The knife is just the right weight and the handle makes it very comfortable to use.
The blade is made from very good quality steel and will keep its edge if regularly sharpened using a quality fine steel, I would recommend getting into the habit of running the knife over the steel before you use it each time, this will ensure it keeps its edge. If the knife is used by a few people it should only every be sharpened by one person as everyone steels a knife at different angles and if done will lead to the knife having a double edge and in turn losing its sharpness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 30 Dec. 2011
This is a very good magnetic knife rack. It is very easy to fit and looks very good once in place.
I have owned other magnetic knife racks which have struggled to hold larger, heavier knifes but this does the job without a problem, even holding a large very heavy meat cleaver.
Currently on the wall with 8 knifes of various sizes and would comfortably hold more if needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent knife!, 28 Dec. 2011
As with all Wusthof knifes this is a very good knife, very sharp, feels good quality and I'm sure if well looked after will last a very long time, definitely worth paying more for good quality knifes than buying a new set every couple of years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 7 Dec. 2011
Excellent product, used the White Truffle oil at the weekend on a pasta starter, smelt and tasted really good. It has a very strong taste so use sparingly.
Brilliant product and a very good service with fast delivery from The Truffle Hunter. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 23 Sept. 2011
Excellent, worked straight out of the box with no complications, currently running at 200mbps, I have an IP phone and VPN running through to my router downstairs, no problems at all. A very good product and saves running cables through walls.
Also D-link offer via their website a free 3rd adapter up until the end of September.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great toilet seat, fits various designs of toilet, 1 July 2011
Now had for 8 months and still a very good toilet trainer seat. lightweight so my daughter can put it on the toilet herself and once on it's very secure and doesn't move about. Bought two, one for home and one for the grandparents house, both fit well on various styles of toilet seat and also fits directly onto the toilet if the seat is not put down. Excellent value.
