3.0 out of 5 stars Works but low quality, 18 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This housing works with a Samsung 500 M.2 and is recognised by the BIOS. Only three stars as the quality is very poor. Alignment of the interface slot was not square to the locking screw - used inert glue to ensure it didn't work its way out. Almost pointless instruction sheet and translation needs more work. The case material is low grade and the holes for screws poorly finished and again badly aligned. It's acceptable from a performance aspect and as it will probably stay in the laptop untouched until the laptop dies, the casing shouldn't matter if it continues to connect the M.2 to the motherboard OK. If you are reasonably technically proficient, you should be able to work around these issues.

Beautifully written with an unusual story-telling style. Interesting well developed characters and good historical plot. Well worth a read!

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of time - there are better alternatives from Amazon, 27 July 2016

These baluns do not work as intended. Installed with shield STP CAT6 they do not transmit enough signal over 20M of twin CAT6 cable. Also they are US standard fittings and require US 48mm deep back-boxes (not available from Amazon UK). The performance was awful, even after checking cabling again (I work with CAT6 all the time) just in case I had messed up a termination. The wiring was run through and empty void with no power cables or other interferences around. They simply did not have the strength to boost the HDMI signal. They were changed for a different make of balun (supplied by Amazon & Maplins) www.amazon.co.uk/Extender-Booster-Network-Transmitter-Receiver-/dp/B00K6BC696/ which worked perfectly over the same cables. The pity is these units are the only surface mounts I could find at the time in the UK - many HDMI baluns/extenders are standalone and not designed for wall mounting, so sticky pads were required for the replacements! A lot of time was wasted trying to get these to work and ultimately they have been returned. Furthermore the description doesn't warn that the connecting cables need to be less than 5M in length & minimum 24AWG. The replacements worked fine with Amazon Basics HDMI leads!

3.0 out of 5 stars Works OK for DIY, 27 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This crimp tool works OK, but it is more of a DIY tool. The crimp action is not ratcheted despite the description. The cable restraint element of the die doesn't push down deeply enough to hold the individual wires well, especially on CAT6. This tool is perfectly adequate for DIY use and will do the job, it's just not up to daily use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but losing compulsion, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once again the great tale continues, but this tome feels over-written for the sake of writing. Every chapter filled with padding about food, heraldry devices, countless descriptions of irrelevance that add nought to this great tale. Expect to skim read 300 pages. The story is still great, but both of these books could have been condensed to one, without detriment to the tale, just as he achieved in the TV screenplay.

3.0 out of 5 stars A strangely disjointed tale..., 20 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is not so much a novel but more a series of essays based around a small, simple plot. It feels like a book one would write to engender oneself with the exam boards and ranks highly as piece for study. If you are looking for a great 'story' this book is probably not for you. Don't be taken in by the Publisher's description. If you are fascinated by English literature and wish to delve into some brilliant concepts, arguments and expositions on thoughts and life, then I can't recommend it highly enough.

The story continues to develop at a pace, with great insight and still the ever-present humour. Going straight book 6 now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for motorbikes, 8 Nov. 2010
Originally bought the Draper In-line guage, but it was no good for the motorbike. This alternative guage by Draper is the same high precision, but it mounts at 90 degrees to the valve stem, not at the more usual 45 degrees like most other "side-fitting" guages. The advantage of this is that you can access the valve pretty much anywhere on a solid spoke bike. I can't comment on wire spokes wheels, but the ability to angle it easily through the wheel, should help. Measurements are easy to take and read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Change your life naturally, 11 Mar. 2009
My wife has been a long term sufferer of Sarcoidosis and we have managed her condition ourselves very successfully for nearly 8 years. We focused on healing her affected liver and used another very successful book - The Liver Cleansing Diet (Dr Sandra Cabot) - in the initial years to help keep her Sarc at bay. To add to her problem she was diagnosed with gallstones in her gallbladder in Feb 2008 and had many severe attacks because of this added complication. The only solution looked like surgery. So once again, we turned to our own investigations and found Andreas Moritz's book on flushing the liver and gallbladder. My wife completed her first flush in October 2008, with great results and has done another three since. I have done the flush too (3 times now) and I am staggered that I too had hundreds of gallstones inside me, as I am a fit, normal weight man.

This book can profoundly change your life without any surgery and in a way that is easy to comprehend. Moritz's writing style explains some very technical workings of the human body in a very non-medical, non-jargon ridden manner, throwing light on a most important function of our body and just how badly we treat it. If more people began to understand the relationship of the liver, bowel and kidneys and how they can affect almost every other organ of the body, then there would less obesity and reduced illness along with improved mental well-being for many people suffering needlessly.

Buy this book and change your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but beware of missing feature, 10 Jan. 2008
This KX-TG7224ES is a super product and works very well. Please note that it does NOT have a headset jack as indicated in the description on Amazon and the Panasonic web-site. Choose KX-TG7160 or TG8120 or TG8090 if you want a headset function.
