5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 6 April 2017
This only arrived yesterday and it's taken me a day to get it to do everything I want but to be honest I couldn't be happier. For the price this is really amazing. I'll update the review if things break or I find any issues but so far so good.

General info
It's a one-up G300, not sure why they don't state that on the listing but that is what it is for sure. It's TKL (tenkeyless) meaning you don't have a number pad or a numlock key and is US layout. Please note that there is such a thing as a one-up G400 if you really need the numberpad but that is NOT what this is.

Initially I was a little thrown by how to type # and, having figured that out, I got held up with |. The problem for me was trying to use ALT codes; this won't work since you don't have a numlock key. Basically, the easiest thing to do is set up an alternative keyboard layout in the OS i.e. a US layout. In Windows 10/8/7 you can short cut the switch over with the Win key and space bar - so it's super simple to toggle when you need too. Linux can be set up similarly.

Another wrinkle I thought I had was that the numlock key was used in the operation of my startech kvm switch. I'd use it to toggle between the work and home laptop and it was very handy. Turns out you can just use the scroll lock (SL) key to do the same thing here. This means the keyboard will work for me for home use, coding and work. It does all the things I need, I can get all the characters and operate the kvm switch directly from the keyboard. The media keys also work to control the volume of the laptop(s).

The background lighting has 4 modes as shown in one of the videos attached to another review. I didn't buy the keyboard for this but am using it and finding it to be a good feature rather just a gimmick. You can of course just turn this off completely.

The switches are Greentech blue and have a nice feel to them. Through some research I found that the patent on the Cherry MX switches expired allowing cheaper copies to be produced. This keyboard is from China and is around 1/4 the price of a Cherry MX equivalent from Germany. Since it is my first mechanical keyboard I can only really compare it to the Logitech K310 it replaces in the home office but there is a pleasing responsiveness to each keystroke and typos are noticeably reduced. The box suggests these are available in black, blue, brown and red switches - if they follow the Cherry convention then brown tends to be the most popular for general use, red for gaming etc. What I will say is that the blue ones are LOUD!

The build quality seems to be surprisingly high. It feels sturdy, looks great and the keyboard came complete with two key pullers. There were no instructions other than a label on the packaging (see image) but, to be honest, that's all you really need.

Overall
Amazing for the money and the TKL and US layout really don't cause any issues.

Pros
1. Price
2. Feel when typing and accuracy of keystroke recording
3. Build quality
4. Lighting

Cons
1. Possibly a little noisy for some (blue switches)

I hate pumping up inflatable beds manually. This makes the job painless and also really helps to deflate the beds fully to get them back into the bags.

A great little tool for use on a patch panel. The automatic cutters needed some careful positioning of the overspill cable but other than that I cannot fault them.

Cracking set of cables. No loss running cat6 over 30-40m and then these from the patch panel to the router. They are very low profile and so will easily fit behind shelves etc. Can't fault them

4.0 out of 5 stars Top quality domestic patch panel, 9 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very high quality item and works a treat. Delivered very fast. The only tiny issue I have with it is that is designed to be used either wall mounted or to lay flat on a desk. The preference, in terms of the orientation of the numbering on the RJ45 ports, is for the desktop configuration. Hence, if you mount it on a wall as I have then you'll find that the numbers appear to be inverted. It's a tiny gripe and they made the sensible decision, just doesn't quite work for me. I'll add an image so you can see what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device and excellent support from manufacturer if needed, 7 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works really well with my Pure Move 2500 digital personal radio. I pair with a Mpow® Cheetah Sport Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless, which was very easy to set up. Range is good for about 40 feet in an office built like a Faraday cage and battery lasts the stated duration of 6-7 hours. I should also mention that this a bluetooth noisy environment, so the transmitter is able to cope well in difficult conditions.

The only slight issue I had with the first one was that if I didn't use it for a number of weeks I'd sometimes have to flush/reset it to connect. This was a simple process (press the single button twice after power up).

I also had cause to call on the manufacturers warranty after 6 months. They were extremely responsive, no quibble and resolved the problem in a couple of days. I was very impressed indeed.

The product is great if a little on the pricey side. It does keep the water crystal clear. Some people have stated that the material quickly becomes very soft and can tare causing the contents to disgorge into the water. A bit like a torn tea bag. I had this happen with the first sachet, basically it floated out of the filter and into the tank, snagged a plastic shipwreck, tore and spilled everywhere. Most annoying. The solution is simple though: rather than just placing the sachet on top of the bio bag just make sure the spare mesh of the bio bag wraps over the top of the sachet. Then it won't be able to slip out and into the tank.See photo for example

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy even for twice the price, 26 Aug. 2014
I had used several other small keyboards like this in the past to control media centres at home. When the last Rii broke down quite soon after purchase I thought I'd try something new and went for the TeckNet. It's brilliant. Works well as far as range goes, the mouse is fairly useable and you've all the keys available without having to used fiddley functions modifiers (as for the Rii). The battery also lasts ages, even if you don't keep turning it off.

The device also stands up well to the attentions of angry toddlers and curious babies. I strongly recommend it.
