4.0 out of 5 stars Works well with a Dell XPS13, 19 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It works well with a Dell XPS13 which is more than can be said for previous ones that I have bought. I expected it to be marked StarTech which I have bought before and are of good quality. The one that was sent to me was not marked with the StarTech logo and seemed to be of cheaper quality - but it did work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great shoes, 19 Oct. 2015

Been looking to replace a similar pair which I have had for more than 10 years. They are very comfortable holiday shoes which can be worn with or without socks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent media server using Ubuntu OS, 10 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MSI DC111 Wind Box PC (Accessory)
I bought this as a media server to sit behind my television. I also bought a Logitech K400 Wireless Touch Keyboard to control it. The MSI computer comes without an operating system which was a big plus for me as I resent having to pay a "Windows" tax when I purchase a computer. I plugged in the wireless chip from the keyboard into one of 4 usb sockets and an external DVD player with Ubuntu Gnome 14.04.1 64 bit image on a DVD and turned the computer on. It installed like a dream from the disk within 20 mins. I also installed XBMC as a media streamer. It easily picked up my networked hard drive via uPnP. So it will stream music and video and provide connection to iplayer etc via the network. I am using an ethernet link to my router although wireless is also possible and just as effective.

The connection to the TV is via the HDMI output. To get the audio through the HDMI connection I needed to install pulseaudio control panel from Ubuntu and change the settings accordingly.

In conclusion this was a very good solution to turn a dumb tv into a smart tv! The fan noise is there but is not an issue since the MSI computer is out of the way behind the tv.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivery was slow and not the express service I paid for. When it did come it didn't work. Its just not fit for purpose.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not do what it says on the tin!, 17 Dec. 2010
I bought this to be able to project an image of the iPad screen for demonstration purposes. It does not do this. You only get a VGA output if it is being used with an app which actives the connection eg slideshow or webpage. For my purposes it was an expensive and useless item. Make sure your app will work with it before buying.
