4.0 out of 5 stars All day in the field?, 16 Feb. 2017
Not impressed with battery life, more confident with powered over USB and powerbank. It needs 4x AA, not 2 as stated.

Very poor value, unbranded cheap discs, better to buy Verbatim or Ritek.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, purchased on recommendation and very happy., 18 Oct. 2016
Brilliant for powering Zoom R8 recorder with phantom mics. First test in record mode lasted over 10 hours! Saves messing about with mains extensions or relying on AA batteries. A no-brainer for anyone with USB powered devices on location.

2.0 out of 5 stars Badly manufactured., 18 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointed about these. Good thick plastic, but all 6 that arrived were all warped inwards at the sides and it is difficult to slot the drives in. Very easy to damage the circuit boards on the edges while trying to put one in. They only have to be the right size and they have got it completely wrong. A great shame because all the other Inateck stuff I have is good, but I would not recommend these.
Update: To their credit Inateck have now given me a full refund as I am not happy with this product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reliability: Good, Design: Stupid, 2 Oct. 2016
My previous Qualcast served me well for over fifteen years (with a few new blades), and I purchased this because of the previous one's good reliability and design. This newer version is not as good as the old one. 1. The switch is now contoured with the handle and constantly snags fingers and thumb while it is gripped 'ON'. The motor stops running at the slightest release which makes steering difficult. 2. The cuttings holder now has a big plastic lip on it, which catches on the edge of the bag while emptying and stops the last few cuttings from tipping out. The mower is good value and reliable and it is frustrating that the design mods are for the worse.

4.0 out of 5 stars TMWSTW has constantly been my all-time favourite album since I heard it in retrospect in 1973, 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
TMWSTW has constantly been my all-time favourite album since I heard it in retrospect in 1973. No way was this performance going to come close to the production of the original album. Only the people who were there know who did what at Trident Studio back in the day, but I have no doubt that Visconti set out to pull out all the stops on this one and I suspect that Ronson played a big part in the arrangement/production too, going by the quotes in 'The Spider with the Platinum Hair'. Having said that, the personnel deserve massive credit for getting together and making this happen. Most of the tracks pretty damn close to the originals (considering this is live) without trying to copy Bowie, which would have been futile, anyway. OK, the mainman (see what I did there? :) ) isn't here, but with Visconti and Woody on board it all adds to the phenomenon that is The Best Album in the World.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reliable so far, let down by user interface., 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having never had any other NAS boxes, I cannot compare performance, but this seems to do the job OK, and only 'OK' albeit at a premium price. The 'DSM' (Synology speak for 'GUI') relies on a Library system that is more bother than it's worth. The natural interface would be a Windows 10 type explorer page with tick boxes to select sharing options, I can't help wondering if Synology is trying to kid their users into thinking they are getting 'lots of features' by going round the houses with numerous apps. Maybe this is unfair, 'File Station' offers easy and quick access to the contents and recent updates have made vast improvements, but as a user it is frustrating that the libraries have such a clunky feel when they could easily be so much better. I would recommend the Synology from my experience so far, but if this was a schoolmaster's report for the Synology software department, I would have to revert to the old cliche, 'could do better'.

5.0 out of 5 stars To the point explanations, with no dithering..., 24 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is difficult to strike a balance between attention to detail and going on to much with irrelevant information, but this book is excellent in my opinion. Rob uses real situations to explain the many variable parameters and controls on the 5300. This would certainly be a good read for anyone with an interest in photography, even if they don't own this particular camera. Not a large amount to spend on purchasing this book if it is going to provide a massive 'upgrade' in terms of the users knowledge and ability.
