3.0 out of 5 stars OK for extension cable..., 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As extension cable this works OK. I was looking for sound control on 3,5 mm adapter cable, and unfortunately this is not available for computer use by this cable. Using Mac OS I can't use USB sound cable since the OS can't handle USB devices without interruptions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast USB memory, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros:
- very fast USB memory (most of the time, typical to this device type)
- reasonably much file space for everyday use
- dependable design

Cons:
- this device seems to have occasionally difficulty is staying visible to the computers. I've pinpointed this now to the feature, that this device needs an USB port with electricity feed, unlike most similar devices. Many computers and USB hubs lack this kind of ports, or it is not available on all USB ports.

Well, even more space would be needed to replace the external hard drive with this...

I have been using this device now half a year daily and it still works well.


Kingston Technology USB 3.0 Multi Card Reader
Kingston Technology USB 3.0 Multi Card Reader

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reliable SDHC reader, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little device helps to read the SDHC cards generally used in cameras and computers. More than that it seems to be built for reliability. I've been using daily Kingston Multi Card Reader for half a year now.

I have two computers with the SDHC slot built in. One of these is a MacBook Pro with a reader on the right side of it. One of many Mac Book's design flaws is that the slot is physically such that it affects the SDHC cards read/write protection switch, often causing unwanted problems while using the card. With the Kingston card reader I can use the USB slot instead and it seems like the Kingston also is much more reliable than Apple's design in recognizing and following the status of the card.

The sliding covers on each side of the Kingston reader are an ingenious invention, made to protect the reader's sensitive electronics and if you plug a memory card to it, that too. The design is also big enough so that you can get a firm grip of the reader, which really helps plugging and unplugging it to computer or the USB hub.

Since I'm going to buy one more, it is easy to recommend this ingenious little device!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware, does not support higher resolutions, 14 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cable is professionally built of good materials.

However, be aware that it does NOT support resolutions over 1920 pixels, like the latest 4K or even 2560. This cable is thus NOT truly compatible with MacBook Pros.

Poseidon's Arrow: Dirk Pitt #22 (The Dirk Pitt Adventures)
Poseidon's Arrow: Dirk Pitt #22 (The Dirk Pitt Adventures)

5.0 out of 5 stars Master Story Telling by Cusslers, Father and Son, 24 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In Poseidon's Arrow Cusslers do it again, they have reinvented the recipe for writing interesting fast paced action thrillers, this time around the ownership of the precious earth minerals (something we use every day without noticing it too much). Again plots converge here and there to create one clear picture leading to the intriguing action drama in the end part of the book.

While sea again plays major part, as it should in just about every Cussler novel I've read, here the Cussler team have added the interesting scenes of Panama canal to the picture, very realistically.

Recommend for Cussler fans!


A Captain's Duty
A Captain's Duty
by Richard Phillips
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story of the Pirate Attack, 24 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Captain's Duty (Paperback)
I had quite high expectations for this purchase from Amazon, however this was one of the cases where these expectations were surpassed. This book is unusual in several respects:
- first the writing is fittingly "rough", suiting well to the subject. I found the language interesting.
- the story is most unusual with first pirates taking over ships with guns, then crew working the situation with their bare hands to almost the opposite...
- the author describes extremely well the difficult situation of both pirates and Richard Phillips once the three huge warships start arriving around the covered lifeboat, with ever deteriorating conditions in the campaign between the two opposite sides, to the very end.
- this book is only as long, 286 pages, as it truly takes to describe the happenings, a special bonus to the publisher of A Captain's Duty.

It is easy to recommend this book!


Trackside with Trains 2014 Calendar (Calendars)
Trackside with Trains 2014 Calendar (Calendars)
by Trains Magazine
Edition: Calendar
Price: £9.74

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Work in Every Respect!, 27 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this calendar as a long time customer for Kamlbach Trains wall calendars. Watching these hanging on the wall often makes the day.
- The pictures for the 2014 calendar have been well chosen and technically of professional quality.
- On this calendar subjects are well suited for a true train enthusiast and beginner, or just someone who likes to have train calendar on the wall for change. (If you belong to the last group, beware, this calendar might lead you to way of enjoying railroading as a fascinating hobby or profession!)
- Every picture subject has a carefully thought story of its own, adding depth to the excellent pictures.
- At the last pages there are some helpful advice for those of us shooting trains with cameras. Plus a list of photographers whose pictures appear in this calendar. These can be a valuable addition for those beginning taking pictures and a good idea from Kamlbach to include it here.

A small but meaningful addition to the calendar is the cardboard sheet inside making sure the product does not bend on the way.

I warmly recommend this product to anyone who wishes to see magnificent train + landscape pictures in their every day life! As well to those who can tolerate train pictures hanging on the wall! Have a try, you might be positively surprised by this product!

(I have no commercial interest with the publisher even though the review might sound like it. I'm just very excited about the quality of this product!)
