GateKeeper 2.0 Remote Control for your Computer with Military-Grade Encrypted Bluetooth SMART Key & Lock Authentication, Black
GateKeeper 2.0 Remote Control for your Computer with Military-Grade Encrypted Bluetooth SMART Key & Lock Authentication, Black
Price: £47.52

2.0 out of 5 stars A great product...when it works properly., 8 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Gatekeeper is a great idea, I just wish it worked better. One minute you can walk 5M away from your computer before it locks (what I want) and the next I will be sitting directly! In front of the PC monitor and it locks. Obviously, when that happens I check the battery monitor and it is showing as 'good'. So you end up unclipping the Gatekeeper key from the lanyard and resting it against the dongle, which defeats the whole point of the device if you walk away and forget to take the key with you. The other thing not explained well in the instructions is how long it takes for the Gatekeeper service to start on the PC. When you start your computer, the standard Windows log on prompt displays long before the Gatekeeper service starts, so you are left waiting to access your machine if you want the Gatekeeper protection. It's such a shame, when the Gatekeeper works properly, it's brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars For power versus price, it's a bargain., 8 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone familiar with high power torches/flashlights will know that the Skyray King does not! produce 8500 lumens out the front. But that being said, for the price, it still throws out a darkness destroying amount of light in a very nice beam pattern, a wide hot spot with a large flood spill. For all the winter dog walkers, you also get a free hand warmer as the body of the torch heats up. For power versus price, it's a bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact with nice even, bright illumination., 8 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are lots of camping lanterns out there but the Lumin 150 combines three of the features I really wanted. It's very compact, gives off a good amount of light and there are no 'hot spots', you get a very nice even illumination. A good product.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very handy gadget, let down by a terrible iPhone app., 27 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The PhotoFast card reader works well, but the app is terrible. Opening pictures and especially videos will usually cause the app to crash. If the app does! manage to play a video file, using the scrubbing bar to fast forward through the video will almost certainly crash the app. I got around the playback issues by installing OPlayer, as the PhotoFast app has an 'open in' option. But it's a shame that such a handy gadget is let down by the software.

Kingston DTLPG3/64GB Data Traveler Locker + G3, USB 3.0 with Personal Data Protection and Automatic Cloud Backup - Silver
Price: £62.96

4.0 out of 5 stars Would be perfect if it worked like a SafeXS secure memory stick., 27 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Data Traveller Locker is beautifully made. It is heavier than 'normal' memory sticks, but the metal case gives it a real quality feel. The only thing I don't like about it is the way it will only work if it mounts as the next two drive letters after your physical internal hard drives. I have several external hard drives attached to my main computer and I've had to mess about with the drive letters just to make the Kingston work. I have a SafeXS secure memory stick already, and that one just plugs in and sorts itself out automatically, mounting as whatever the next two available consecutive drive letters are on my system. So it is possible. Kingston have just been lazy. Still highly recommended though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A good quality copy holder, 27 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You would think that finding a good copy holder would be a simple affair. But this is my third attempt. The first one fell apart and the second one had a line guide that dropped two lines from left to right. Third time lucky though because this Kensington is excellent. It is well made, has cork and rubber pads on its base to stop it sliding around and the line guide is perfectly horizontal. There are also a couple of nice little extra features. The first is that the base is held back with a magnet when the copy holder is folded flat, and the second is that the document clip can extend upwards a few extra inches to cater for foolscap paper. Highly recommended.

Road Deal Fashionable Two Way LCD Digital Auto Car Clock Thermometer Car Temperature Gauge Meter with Blue Backlight Clip .KilnAuto

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a nice little car accessory., 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Car Clock Thermometer is quite a nice little unit. Yes, it's all plastic, but it kind of works to give you quite an attractive car accessory. The clock does not drift and the thermometer is quite accurate. There are only two things I don't like about it. The first is that you have to be looking directly at the front of the clock when using the bright blue back light, otherwise the numbers disappear, and the spring loaded clip is smooth hard plastic with no rubber tips, which makes it hard to find a place to secure it in the car. Other than that, it's proving to be a decent little device.

4.0 out of 5 stars A quality little alarm clock., 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lovely little alarm clock and a perfect travel clock, thanks to the stand/button cover. It feels well made, and the slider controls all move with satisfying clicks. The alarm is quite loud for such a tiny item. So why only four stars? Well it's because of the snooze/light button, it's in totally the wrong place. You wake up in the night and check the time. Although the backlight is bright amber, your thumb is now covering the illuminated time display. It's such a frustrating design flaw. If only that button had been on the top of the clock, it would have been perfect. Still a quality little item though.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality windscreen mount., 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had heard good reviews about the Dock & Go, and I haven't been disappointed by mine. I own an iPhone 6 Plus in quite a heavy, bulky protective case. So I was concerned that the mount would not be robust enough to hold such a heavy combination. I was also worried by the fact that it is the bottom arm of the mount that is the spring loaded moving part, so wondered if a decent bounce in the car would see the phone jump out of the jaws. But the Dock & Go suffers from none of those things. The jaws hold the phone, even in it's large case, very securely and allow it to be positioned and then held rock solid. The one handed insert and remove design is very handy, but my favorite feature is just how securely the dock fastens to the windscreen glass. The suction cup isn't the generic type you see on almost every other mount. Instead it uses some sort of ultra sticky, flexible material that seals airtight when you press in the dock's suction lever. In fact, rather than worry about the dock falling off the windscreen and taking my smartphone with it. I'm actually now more concerned about how I will ever get the unit off my windscreen in the future. It's a quality mount, and if it holds my phone and armored case, it will definitely hold yours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant form factor. But confidence shattered within 12 hours of unboxing., 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After purchasing the K3, I opened an Inforad account and bought a 12 month subscription to the premium database. The difference being that you get weekly updates instead of monthly. All well and good. But on the very! first day of using it, there was a traffic accident on my 50 mile commute home, so I clipped the phone to the windscreen holder, turned on the TomTom app and rerouted. The satnav took me on quite a long detour through several villages, one of which had a pair of permanent average speed cameras. The TomTom saved me, because my shiny new, just! updated (from the £30 'premium' database) Inforad K3 just sat silent on the dashboard. The fact that it later sprang to life on a straight stretch of country lane, with good all-round visibility, to warn me that I was approaching a possible mobile camera site just added insult to injury. So do I still like the K3, yes. The self contained form factor is brilliant. Is my confidence in it shaken, absolutely. My TomTom app camera database was last updated at the start of December 2015 using the free update service and it knew exactly where the average speed cameras were. The K3 had been updated that morning from the Inforad paid subscription service and didn't have a clue. Which, I'm sorry Inforad, is utter crap. So do your customers a favour. Pull your finger out and give us the maximum camera protection you promise. We don't expect you to have cameras where the foundation cement is still wet, in the database yet. But we most certainly DO want you to know about cameras that were installed over a year ago.
