1.0 out of 5 stars This short travel keyboard good works well, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a small keyboard to sit on my lap and connect to my laptop.

My Apple keyboard is too Bluetooth and has way too much lag. And is difficult to type on.

This short travel keyboard good works well. Much better key feel than Apple keyboard.

The keyboard is small and compact. like an Apple keyboard with a number pad added on the end.

Seems like a quality piece of kit .

Will either live with the mouse or replace it at latter date

The mouse on the other hand wants replacing. Its very low profile doesn't suit my large hands as it offers no support.

It' a laser and tracks well

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased by NRG IT ltd. Sold as Dell sound bar. Looks like unbranded Chinese copy. No Dell Logo on box, No Dell part number on soundbar.
The soundbar fits a Dell monitor U2412m. Will contact need Dell to authenticate this product.
Was expecting Dell manufactured product.
The Fake? Dell product works. sound quality basic. Will return to vendor if item proves to be Chinese copy.
Will keep you posted.

4.0 out of 5 stars To connect via instructions use USB3 Male B connection into USB3 hub input of monitor ( This lead was supplied with your monitor, 4 Jun. 2015
I am glad someone was bright enough to work this out.

As Daniel says. If you wish to wire this up as per diagram you need to plug from your PC Male USB 3 "A" to the USB 3 male "B" hub input on your Display panel.
You will need a USB 3 lead male A to Male B The square pyramid connection type USB 3 ( USB male type B connection) this was supplied with your monitor.

In addition you need to plug the fly lead from the sound bar into the power out USB connection as per the instructions. That's the USB port not underneath your monitor, but the one as pictured in the instructions, a single port mounted on the back of the monitor.

The instructions don't match the cables provided.

Alternative connection method!
The second way to connect this is simple

To connect with the cables provided just go straight from sound bar into your PC. Plug in the extension cable that came with the sound bar into the fly lead. then plug into PC and hey presto.

This straight forward connection is probably the best way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware non UK keyboards as replacement keyboards cost £60- plus, 5 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item sent item with Finnish, as in Finland Keyboard with slip of paper containing instructions on how to use keyboard. Very similar to Russian keyboard layout.

Beware US keyboards as different @ key layout.
Item had slight damage to internal plastic bezel. Great many overpriced poor quality items not as described on this site

One of these 2010 yr products in Mint condition should go for £230- inc vat

1.0 out of 5 stars not enough drop protection, 17 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I dropped my vivotab me 400c last night, from about a height of 2 feet whilst opening the front door. Although it was in this case the vivotab casing is now severely bruised. Oddly the Mojo leatherette hinged is now ripped. The energy from the impact seems to have passed directly through the hard moko plastic case into the side of the device. The screen is still in tact. So their has been some benefit from having the case. The hard Mokocase is undamaged. Will be purchasing cheaper 6.99 case which has more impact protection on the sides. I think a rubber case would be even better energy absorption. Dropping this 600 gram device onto hard concrete floor, you will need a better case than this with better energy absorption

1.0 out of 5 stars The office IT manager couldn't get this working ????, 3 Aug. 2013
Failed to create complete backups of data. would open backed up folder to find it was just a shell with nothing in it.

Could only make faulty backups with synologys own software. Which as I pointed out would make back ups of folders with nothing in them. Less than useless.

The Nas was not recognised under windows XP Pro. So would not show up on the network, which meant I was unable to use Acronis true image 13 backup software.

In summary this device was completely unfit for doing basic office backups, the software although very pretty has an unessesary complicated menu, more than is needed for basic office back up. The proprietory software is way too complicated needing various passwords and user accounts to be set up. etc etc.

I have now purchased the 'Netgear ReadyNAS DUO V2.Which is £100 less, I set up working within 10 minutes. It Is recognised under windows, case.

Synology was a heap of rubbish the netgear product works flawlessly, and is half the price. It has a solid metal too, not cheap plastic, also proper detachable plug in hard drive slots for swopping or installing new hard drives. Like a proper server rack.

Synology techincal support impossible to contact to.

At the end of the day this unit may have been faulty, i have never been able to contact synology to resolve basic issues, like the device not being found under windows. The device is now out of warranty, I might just as well put £179- in the bin.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only average range, 26 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
installation a little tricky. had to use mini USB disk supplied. No explanation about the settings in the menu.
From such a small device you wouldn't expect it to be particularly powerful and its not.
Range is less than 10 metres. With speed dropping off a cliff at about 7 metres.

Ok to use in same room as router. Would not recommend it to go through solid walls or any distance. Would send it back but it came from Germany, so postage too expensive.

It does work but has very limited range, even with powerful router aerial.

2.0 out of 5 stars worse signal than original 0dB aerial supplied, 18 Sept. 2012
Found Standard alfa 5dB aerial worked much better, when connect ot my zoom 3g 4051 router. Up to 90 mbs. ( slightly fluctuating though.

This product 7 dB panel aerial reduced signal and speed to 11mbs over 10 metres distance in old brick built house. I think the aerial is directional.

So far standard alfa 5dB multidirectional aerial works better gives 90 mbs over 10 metres. But speed still slightly inconsistant.

Intend to try 9dB multidirctional aerial.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb value for money, 25 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros:
Connecting with RGB lead to compact computer running xp
Full Hd 16:9 aspect very wide screen.
using monitor for looking at drawings and spreadsheets.

Surberb matt finish anti glare screen, good overall colour balance and very sharp picture.

using monitor on default settings in xp 1920 x 1080 anything less causes less picture quality. Very old graphics cards would be a no.

For the money this monitor gives an absolutley stunning picture quality even on old rgb socket.

Cons:

No height adjustment on stand. but stand has vesa mounting so you can use any vesa mounted stand or wall bracket.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and tacky and gaudy, 24 July 2011
Good screen but garish colours, Low resolution screen means zoomed in web pages fuzzy compared to I phone 3 or 4.

Touch wiz UI makes applications load slowly and spoils smoothness of interface. Not anywhere near as good as HTC Sense UI,

keyboard very poor for typing,very small, lots of missed keys when typing.

Its difficult to change between apps.

Web pages load up slowly and unable to zoom in on all websites.

Touch screen seems very sensitive, easy to hit two keys at once. Anyone with large fingers should avoid this like the plague.

Email and texting apps very poor had to install K9 email app. as installed app so muddled and almost impossible to set up.

This touch WIZ interface is an example of where tinkering with android can just make things worse.

In Summary

If the screen were higher resolution and less gaudy it would be good, but zooming shows up its difficiencies.

Email app crashed every time i tried to open jpeg. email difficult to set up.

. Absolutely not a busines phone, email and texting poor.

If you want an intersting toy that, feels cheap and has unfinished UI. Then buy this. Unpleasnt UI and garish screen, and unusable small keyboard spoil this phone.

Not good for any one with large fingers.

And to think Samsung went on to make another one like this called it the galaxy s2 and charged almost £500- pounds. Who buys this tat.

If you want a quality business type phone HTC might suit you better. I would stay clear of this childs toy.
