You could probably find cheaper (4quid) elsewhere but it's got useful tools

I only bought for the spudger tools (blue plastic tools) to pop open laptop/any hinged unit to replace hard disk and also to pop off keyboard keys - works well for this purpose

3.0 out of 5 stars RPi: works but its not what is advertised, 3 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Listed as a Ralink 5370 but its actually a RealTek RTL8192CU (USB id 0bda:8179) - works with Raspberry Pi Zero latest Jessie release, however you need to force it to load the kernel module (add "r8188eu" to /etc/modules) so the OS knows about this device and automatically starts the network interface - you can also hotplug the device and that will force the module to load but not ideal.

Seems to drop around 1% of the received network packets

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value bundle, 3 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Raspberry Pi 3 Value Starter Kit
Good value kit for ~40 quid given that the RPi3 ~31GBP + 5v 2.5A power ~6GBP + 16GB microSD ~6GB + case ~2GBP. The SD card supplied is NOT a sandisk and as other reviews say, the case needs some adjustments (file the slot for HDMI jack)


Swoosh: The Unauthorized Story of Nike and the Men Who Played There
Swoosh: The Unauthorized Story of Nike and the Men Who Played There
by J.B. Strassner
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, written in a very informal/easy to read ..., 30 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great book, written in a very informal/easy to read style detailing the stories of the beginning and history of Nike, starting with who Phil Knight is and his connection to Bill Bowerman (the coach with the waffle iron) and the people who became magnetised to the steam train.

Even if you're a Nike fan then this is a great read, although it's difficult to take this as full facts - it's almost comedic the manner (not a bad thing) in which the stories are told of how Nike danced with all their problems and still managed to arrive where they are now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice coffee table book but.., 30 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice coffee table book for those who have a passing interest in sneakers but nothing heavy or substantial.

For each shoe the authors have identified, they give a brief (think 3-5 paragraphs) background of the shoe and the year of release along side the photographs of the shoe and perhaps associated context material such an adverts or picture of people who may be associated with a particular shoe (ie a photo of RunDMC leading into the pages detailing the adidas Superstar)

As a footnote identifying the shoes that you may have worn/lusted after then it's fine. For anyone wanting a richer history for their beloved shoes then this isn't it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Flat laces to replace in my adidas, 12 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Flat laces that fit nicely in my Adidas superstar. Quality is not Adidas original laces but these are good and the weave is tight - much better than the branded laces from the big supermarket and only 56 pence more but you get 6 pairs instead of the one.

Note that these are posted from Hong Kong/southern China so takes 7 or do days to get here.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than Meets the Eye, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For any child of the 80s this is a no brainer for the 20GBP that it was sold for.

This is typically refered to a G1 (Generation 1) Transformers to distinguish this from the awful spinoffs that came later. The animation is pretty bad and some of the season 3 stories go awol (daemons and wizards with magic fighting the autobots via a portal in the middle of Cybertron!?) but the nostalgia will trump those problems.

Contains season 1-4, including "The Return of Optimus Prime" episodes which was set after Unicron/Galvertron/Rodimus Prime.

The DVDs are all housed in a single big plastic holder but its very difficult to open the box without everything else spilling out. All episodes in English; one reviewer mentioned that some of the later episodes were Japanese but this wasn't the case with my set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good supplement and several hundred pounds cheaper than the most ..., 22 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used to pair a 2410 which has a wider gaumet and both used for graphics. Same 16:10 aspect ratio that the 2014 models don't offer.

Color profiled with a spyder and it's util claimed the 2412M had 100% sRGB coverage even though the specs claim otherwise.. Good supplement and several hundred pounds cheaper than the most recent 2410 direct replacement.
