5.0 out of 5 stars It does exactly what it says on the box......, 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This worked out the box and does exactly what it says it does. When I ordered it Plugable sent me an e-mail with a link to the drivers and I was able to install these before the box arrived. Once it arrived it was a synch to install. I've now been using it a couple of days and I love it. It's made swapping between my work and home laptop in my office setup many times easier.

Only a couple of wishes. 1) It's always on - regardless of whether your laptop is connected or not. It could with some kind of sleep mode (much like my monitor has). 2) Would it be possible to power the laptop off this docking station as well? That way everything would be in once place (this may be an impossible dream).

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't even consider buying these they don't work., 26 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using Devolo kit for nearly the last ten years and was always pleased with the quality and reliability. I brought these and was really disappointed. I've used them for a month and consistently (maybe 3-5 times a day) they disconnect completely from my router dropping the internet connection. Devolo support are helpful but very slow taking days and weeks to answer e-mails (in some cases only answering when I threatened to ask Amazon for a refund). They gave me a beta firmware to try which didn't fix things. I then gave them details of my home network and they said they were going to give me another firmware issue but they're not sure when. I've waited two weeks and asked Amazon for a refund. Sorry Devolo, your product is crap, you really need to test it before it goes out the door.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value but..., 12 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value, clear and concise but don't be fooled into thinking you are getting a book - This is a thick pamphlet but for 80p what else would you expect? It's pretty much a web tutorial in Kindle format. I read it in an hour or so.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bit disappointing...., 31 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are ok but given the money have some serious flaws.

1. They leak sound, so if you use these in the office don't be amazed if your co-workers get annoyed with you.

2. They suffer from interference. Your mobile phone will turn that delightful Mahler symphony into a series of pips and clicks and your wireless keyboard will start to lose characters.

3. And the most annoying fault of all. If you turn off the music and you forget to turn off the headphones then after a couple of minutes the transmitter turns off meaning you get loud noise direct to your lug-holes. Loud enough that it can be heard several desks away. If you stop your music you must turn off the phones.

The sound quality is OK though.


Anolon Professional Hard Anodised Covered Stirfry Wok, 30 cm
Anolon Professional Hard Anodised Covered Stirfry Wok, 30 cm

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant Anolon product..., 3 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another brilliant Anolon product. I have all Anolon saucepans, the heat tranfer is even and the build quality is consistently good. Le Creuset performance for us mere mortals who burn things without the weight or the hefty price tag and this Wok definately more of the same.

It's just a shame the manufacturers could not get the various stockists to stock the whole range. For example, I've found the Wok on Amazon and in Debenhams but not in John Lewis (Amazon is the cheapest). You have to shop around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant as a grater, just not a gate (sic) box grater., 3 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant as a grater, however if you are purchasing this product because you think the inbuilt box will stop the mess then you are sadly mistaken. When grating cheese approx 90% goes in the box, 10% still falls outside on the work-surfaces etc. Not a lot you can do about this, but as I said, as a grater it's brilliant and the box is usefull for storing any excess in the fridge etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor, 10 Aug. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What they don't actually tell you is which platform this book is aimed at. It actually, covers all the major consoles but not the Nintendo DS Version (which is why we brought it).

And they don't say this either here or on the publishers website.

Caveat Emptor.
