Although the Torchwood series is very good (by Russell T Davies - the same as Doctor Who), Miracle Day steps up the production quality in my opinion. Good story line and some great new cast joining the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small and easy to use, 28 Sept. 2014

Small and easy to use. Includes prioritisation of traffic by port, a feature usually requiring some technical control panel (web based or otherwise) and normally usually find in expensive, enterprise, rack mounted switches.

Battery Grip MB-D80 for Nikon D90 D80 w/ IR Remote & 2x EN-EL3e Lithium-Ion Batteries

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, with some battery meter compatibility problems, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Allows me to get much longer between charges through 2 batteries, and a much better grip on my D90, but for some reason, the battery meter doesn't recognise the batteries properly and therefore if you have 1 battery with a 50% charge and another with 0% charge, the camera won't turn on... take the 0% battery out of the battery grip and the camera will come on just fine and show 50% charge.

Only a problem when I've only had time to charge one of the batteries before use, and even then it's easily resolved by pulling the flat battery out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cheap, and works a charm!, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does exactly what it says on the tin, insert micro-sim (easy) and put into phone. Sturdy enough to hold the SIM without popping out, and fits into the SIM card slot perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Laymon, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: To Wake the Dead (Kindle Edition)
Although most of Richard Laymon's stories are always along the same lines, and you can pretty much predict what is going to happen I still don't tire of his stories and trying to guess from the beginning how each of the separate story lines are going to come together in the end, who is going to die and who is going to survive.

This one doesn't disappoint! :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Pain in the *** to put together., 27 Dec. 2012
I can't help but think that the designers of this product missed some parts out. When you put the 4 upright pieces together in the centre (in the product picture) they don't quite reach, and therefore after putting the first upright in place, you'll find yourself putting another in place and the first coming out. If you eventually manage to get all 4 uprights connected at the same time, they'll be so loosely hanging together that the slightest knock and it'll all come down again... in my case, my 5 year old asks me to put it together and he helps to put the hoses onto the struts after I've struggled to get them in place (as per instructions) and the whole thing falls apart leading to daddy spending another 20 minutes trying to get them back together again, and a little boy who doesn't want to play with it for worry that it'll fall apart again.

uDraw Tablet including Instant Artist (Xbox 360)

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids, not so easy for adults, 27 Dec. 2012
Great for my 5 year old to draw on the TV with, but when I had a go I found it to zoom in and out all of the time dragging the cursor with it. It was only after my 5 year old watched me for 10 minutes that he pointed out that my finger was also on the pad and that a 2-fingered pinch is how it zooms.

I don't know whether it's just me being fairly used to using a graphics tablet or not, but I'd expected it to only read the pen on the pad, not fingers as well. I'm yet undecided whether it reading fingers and therefore allowing 2-finger gestures is a good thing, or a bad thing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work as a Thunderbolt cable from what I can tell, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the connection appears the same I'm told from a number of sources since that this cable can't be used as a Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt cable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works like an Apple product, almost looks like an Apple product, but costs a lot less!, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already own an Apple original Mini DisplayPort adapter, and have done for years, but at the price Apple charge I was able to buy multiple adapters and still have change.

This adapter works exactly like an original apple adapter, but just looks a little bigger on each part, including the thickness of the cable. Granted, that makes it look a little less slick, but only if you've got them both lined up side by side.

I've noticed no performance impact, no interference or anything.
