5.0 out of 5 stars Robust and unobtrusive, 17 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Came in sensible packaging with a sturdy looking keyfob and a small presentation - not something that swayed my decision but it rounds the package out if you give it as a present.

There are simple instructions for trimming and fitting with diagrams, although it was pretty self-explanatory.

Well finished, tough and practical. Might be a bit wide for some belt-loops so worth checking

4.0 out of 5 stars Eye-catching and practical, 11 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As there seems to be confusion, this relates to the large version of the chair mat.

In common with every hard-floor mat I've tried this also moves on a hard surface, although it seems less inclined to move than smaller versions, I expected this, and buying an oversize mat that I can also rest a desk-leg or two on has been my solution. No stars deducted for this, it's a "feature" of every hard-floor mat I've tried.

The mat itself is flexible but doesn't take long to flatten. Colour is vibrant and it's neatly finished.

1* deducted as it seems expensive for what it is, although shipping can't be cheap.

Still recommended - practical and a nice change from transparent mats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive, seemingly wide compatibility, reliable operation, 7 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inexpensive and works well so far with the supplied test cards.

The unit was picked up as a HID by Win10, a Lubuntu VM host in VirtualBox on the same hardware, and a Raspberry Pi Model 3, no additional drivers required in any of these, it simply worked out of the box.

As an additional test, I plugged it into an Apple iMac (late 2012, OSX 10.12.6 Sierra). At the point it asked me to identify the keyboard, I just scanned a card, and it the allowed me to manually a generic US ISO keyboard, From this point, the scanner worked just as it had in the other devices

The download link in the product notes above downloads a rar file with a Windows executable that allows the format for the returned ID to be set - hex, decimal, trailing CR etc. Once this was done, it's given me fast, predictable results.

It's USB powered, comes with a ~1m of cable, has a brightish blue light that changes to green when a scan is successful, and it emits a loud beep at the same time - a very positive indicator. With the supplied cards, it reads reliably from a distance of ~7cm, very occasionally 8-9cm, so certainly good enough. if I change the angle of attack, it needs the card to be placed a little closer, but successfully reads at every angle except at right-angles to the scanner - an excellent result.

All-in-all, an excellent low-cost reader if all you need is to detect the presence of a tag by it's serial number.

Tags I've tested as compatible:

1) 3M adhesive "kamor nfc ntag203" - had these for a few years and thought I'd chucked them. They all read fine, but the reading distance falls to < 2cm

2) From NFC Products Limited - Smartrac Bullseye ntag213 (38mm product code CS102). Paper thin clear adhesive ntag213 tags. All as expected, reading distance 5 - 7 cm

4.0 out of 5 stars Slight buzz at low very low level, otherwise very good., 8 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fast delivery, compact, pleasant light.

Works in a >10 year dimmable lamp at 3 levels, albeit with a very slight buzz at the lowest (very dim) level, and for that reason 4*.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warms up 6000k LEDs just as described, 26 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fast delivery and did exactly what it was supposed to do - warm up some 6000k lights.

Only criticism is the packaging, not the product. It came in a sensible rigid cardboard tube, but this was placed in a 18" x 8" x 4" box and packed with paper, which is madness.

It may seem expensive for a single sheet, but having had a good look around, this competitively priced (at least for the layman)

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat and bright, but check colour temperature and fitting before buying, 26 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these as under-shelf lighting for shelves that were fairly high up, making naked LED strips a bit less palatable.

4* but you have top be very careful about your use. I considered 3* for a while, but on closer inspection, the main drawback is telegraphed in the description.

So these are the two things to beware of:

1) They aren't really suitable for screw mounting anywhere, The end-brackets look like they're made for this purpose, but they're intended for attaching a lanyard. I did end up going down this route, but ended up having to tease the end bracket off, screwing it on, end then easing it back into place at the cable end.

The cable's simply too close to the hole to avoid bending it, and I sacrificed one of the lamps this way. They still seem well made but there's obviously a limit

2) They give off a very cold light in comparison to

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01KY98FVC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

which I have in the same room.

Again, in hindsight, the description for one gives the colour temperature as 3000K and this at 6000K so all the information was there, I just didn't appreciate it's significance.

To address this, I ordered a gel that takes the warmth 6000K -> 3000K:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01N7TDYSP/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

which I just trimmed and taped around at the back of the tube. You'd get 10 tubes to one sheet in this way (3 needed in my case)

So in summary, read carefully. Still a bargain, but some fiddling involved for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat with stable multiple device output, 24 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to simultaneously charge a small bluetooth speaker, and power an under-shelf LED strip without cluttering things up.

It's slightly deeper than the average plug, but this (and it's weight) are something I've come to consider reassuring.

In tests, it's capable of powering the speaker, and an Amazon Echo Dot.

Additional bonus - no LEDs, blue or otherwise.
