5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive and compatible, 9 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As always, it's 5* given the price.

Lead length is fairly generous, it's smaller than the Logitech B110 it replaces and significantly lighter. Whether you see that as a plus of minus will depend on your personal preferences but it hasn't taken long to adjust.

It has no issues operating on a smooth faux-wood surface (but it's not particularly reflective)

The scroll wheel is a bit smoother and less clicky than the B110.

As far as compatibility goes, I've replaced two B110s that went odd within a day or two of each other generating phantom clicks and scrolls. They were attached to a Win7 laptop and an iMax with OSX and various Linuxes in VMs.

My updgrade process consisted of yanking the old mice out and plugging the new ones in without any concessions such as rebooting / shutting down etc. Win7 gave me a popup saying there was a new USB device but carried on as if nothing had happened. OSX / VM Linuxes didn't bother with a popup, it just kep going as if nothing had happened. About what I'd expect but nice to have it work that way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality, but fails with a BlackBerry Q10 / Kindle Fire, 14 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The adaptor doesn't work with a BlackBerry Q10 - it looks as it the adaptor is a bit too short to make contact correctly given the Q10's slightly curved body. I tried both cables so no fault there.

it does work with a BlackBerry Passport which has a slightly flatter socket.

4* because it does seem to be excellent quality and the Q10 is an oddball (my favourite oddball tho so I remain disappointed)

I'd gladly buy another set it they were Q10 guaranteed

This review is from: Simpletask (App)
A well designed, responsive app that adds real value to the todo,txt principle. Synchronises with Dropbox effortlessly on Android, Linux and BlackBerry.

Running as an Android app on a BB Q10, this is easily as responsive as a native cascades app for any use case I've had for it so far. Very nicely done.

2.0 out of 5 stars Useful while it lasts but a short lifespan, 21 Mar. 2016

For me, at least, unreliable. The switch has stopped working rendering it useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality backup charger, 13 Mar. 2016

Slightly bulkier than then original power supply, but inexpensive, well made, and does the job. Bought so I wouldn't need to plug / unplug from me desk when on the move, perfect for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, good textured surface, even colouring, 13 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived dead on time. Surprisingly compact package although this was inside another vast box Amaxon used to deliver two items at once,

Two things that aren't apparent from the image / description:

1) The small version of the image gives the impression there is a darker border, but the whole piece is the same colour. If you look at the zoomed in version, it's clear this is just the way the light has hit things

2) The front lip of the tread is a backed by a pretty sturdy plastic former keeping things in place; there's an adhesive strip along the full length of this former, and a further adhesive patch towards the centre of the semicircle. I don't think there's much chance of it going anywhere accidentally

3) The texture gives an excellent grip on the upper surface,

One word of warning; if you're trying them in place before sticking them down, don't be tempted to trot up and down on them without being *very* careful; before they're stuck down, they're pretty mobile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needs some care and planning in the fitting together, and is a bit unforgiving of uneven floors, but very good value for money. All the tools required to assemble are supplied - although I'd use your own if you have them - and there were spares of every screw and washer.

My only complaint is that the bar that allows the doors to lock had lost a pin in transit meaning there's no locking mechanism on mine. FWIW the lock isn't going to keep anyone out and at this price not enough to justify losing a star.

Inexpensive with clear instructions, well thought out, and delivered a week ahead of schedule.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bargain but don't use the supplied screws, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hovered around 3 stars for this for a while; it arrived quickly and the lock, handles and main part of the handle is very good quality for the cost.

On the downside:

* the instructions are microscopic - no problem if you're less ignorant than I was about fitting one

* the screws are dreadful quality - heads stripped / snapped with very little pressure

So overall a thumbs up, but use your own good quality screws, or be diligent about drilling pilot holes however soft you think the wood is

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made bargain laptop / tablet and accessories, 23 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for slipping into luggage and carrying a laptop and a few papers / A4 notepad / cables etc. backwards and forwards into meetings at your destination.

Textured rubber bumpers on the inside meant I had no reservations about slipping a new MBP into it without additional protection.

Good quality zips, and shoulder strap (which I'll likely never use but YMMV). Bought as a last minute disposable-that'll-do but very pleasantly surprised.
