4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Product at a Fraction of the Motorola Price, 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall this is a good strap and whilst it is cheap compared to the Motorola strap (if you can find one in UK) it isn't short on quality.

Pros: Quality substantial feel, well made, looks great on the watch, good price, next day delivery (Sunday, with Prime free trial). tool supplied which is particularly useful for removing the pins (the fixing on the strap has a cut out at the mounting point for ease of extraction).

Cons: No instructions (see below), the outside of the strap is polished and so doesn't quite match the watch (it still looks fine though). Ironically the underside of the strap is not polished and matches almost perfectly. Didn't have "yellowing" that some reviews mention. I find it fiddly to undo the strap when on my wrist - I discovered the best way is to just pull up on the middle link.Maybe it will ease with use. There's no fine adjustment of the length. After removing one link the strap was too loose, after removing a second it was too tight. I've settled for too loose - I'll get used to it !

Advice: Without instructions I had no idea how to even open the clasp and didn't want to force it. After scrutinizing I realised that you have to insert your finger and force the strap away from the butterfly underneath or just pull the middle link up from the butterfly. I don't have particularly small wrists but still had to remove one link. Again no instructions. If you look on the underside of the links you will see a small arrow. The pins push out that way (and go back in the same direction). You'll know your going the right way because the side you push from has the pin slightly recessed. I had to tap the pins out initially and so flattened a small panel pin (nail) rather than tapping the end of the tool provided - the opposite end of the tool is designed for extracting the pins and I didn't want to damage it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works Very Well, 19 Nov. 2013
I've had one of these for over 2 years and it feeds 4 TV's around my single storey house. The splitter is right next to my Sky+ box but the TV's are all remote with HDMI cable runs of up to 25 meters. I very occasionally get a blank screen for 1 or 2 seconds - if it's something critical I just rewind and carry on (so it's recorded on my Sky+ box but just has a hiccup). 3D works fine also. If a 2nd, 3rd or 4th TV is turned on then the first one does also experience a blank screen for a couple of seconds but again it's a case of a quick rewind. I have to say that I haven't tried it with all 4 TV's on but it definitely works with 3. Oh - picture quality is first class.
I would recommend this without any hesitation. But for the aforementioned occasional blank screen it would have got 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Throw the Instructions Away, 29 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This really does extend your wifi range - just as it says on the box ! However, as others have said throw the instructions away. This is what I did to get it to work with my BTHomeHub3; Plug it in near to your router and wait for the red light to turn yellow. Turn your phone (or tablet) on and open wifi settings. "Repeater" will show up in your list of wifi networks (it wouldn't show on my PC but was there on my phone and tablet)). Select it and open your browser which will open the configuration page for the Huawei. Select option 2 which is Manual Configuration. Ensure the name of your router appears in the pop up window. Type in your router's password and that's it. The light on the Repeater will flash yellow (it was previously static yellow) and then turn green meaning that it has connected. You can then unplug it and move it to wherever you need it (obviously not too far from the router - 1/2 way between the router and your "dead spot/s".

Does exactly what it should. Delivered promptly. Only minor criticism is that it doen't need to be so bulky (depth wise).

5.0 out of 5 stars You Want Arabic Music - Look No Further, 6 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this CD after a recent trip to he Middle East. It is terrific mixing modern with traditional. I've read a review not rating it - why ??? I love it. The Matrawak Dammak track (the oldest one) is superb - you could be sat in a 1930's Kasbah Coffee house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oxford Combination Lock, 8 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is exactly as described and works perfectly for my requirements. Slim and long wire with combination lock. It would be better if the combination could be user set so as not to have to remember the fixed code, but still a great little lock and wire.
