5.0 out of 5 stars USB / micro SD storage solution for 3G 16MB Moto G model no XT1032, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm using this tiny device (footprint is smaller than a mini SD card) with a Moto G 3G 16MB mobile which, of course, has no built in micro SD storage but does support USB OTG (on the go). It should allow me to access up to 64 GB of music, photos, video or downloaded movies stored on a micro SD card using the included apps on the Moto G. I haven't been able to write directly from the camera to the SD card yet, although others more technically gifted may know of a way of doing this. However, I downloaded the free app ES File Explorer from Google play which allows me to move photos or video recorded and stored in the phones internal storage directly to the micro SD card. I haven't tried a 64GB card yet but I'm using 32GB SanDisk and Samsung class 10 micro SD cards and so far they have both worked flawlessly with videos and feature length downloaded (MP4) movies

I had originally bought the 4G 8MB Moto G with integral SD storage but returned it after it failed to work with the two cards I'm now using with this device. Anyone stuck with a 4G Moto G waiting for a fix for the SD card problem may find it more than useful. If you often use your Moto G as a media player it could be a more elegant solution than having to prise the back off the phone and swap SD cards around.

1.0 out of 5 stars Check UK version is delivered, it should say XT1032 on the box., 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The phone delivered to me (supplied by UK PHOTO, fulfilled by Amazon) was not the one described, i.e. Motorola XT1032 with USB data/charging cable, Instructions and warranty leaflet; it was what I believe is called the 'International version', XT1033, dual sim with a travel charger and no warranty leaflet that I could recognise. I think this version is aimed mainly at the Asian market. Briefly looking around the web I think there are some differences in the wireless frequencies and it looks like the android software is still at the Jelly Bean version. It may well be as good as or even better than the UK model but it wasn't what I ordered. Its been returned to Amazon and I've ordered a replacement directly from them (£5 dearer) which, hopefully, will be the XT1032 model / UK version as per their description.

2.0 out of 5 stars Micro SD storage doesn't work., 4 July 2014
This version of the Moto G was pre-ordered and bought as much for the micro SD card storage as its 4G capability. I bought two 32 gb class 10 cards, San Disc and Samsung, to use with it; neither of these work with the the phone although both work perfectly well in a laptop, tablet and PC. Amazon script for the Moto 4G claims that the phone and Samsung card are frequently bought together so there's a lot of people going to be disappointed when they try and use their SD card.

From other comments here and around the web, there is obviously a problem with this feature which Motorola need to acknowledge and fix and Amazon ought to be encouraging them. So although everything else appears to be working OK and the phone appears to be good value for money, it is not as described. Unless this problem is fixed quickly the phone will be returned with the two redundant SD cards for replacement by the 16 GB Moto G version and some refund - I can manage without the 4G.

The purchasing experience was also soured by Amazon's decision to reduce the pre-order price by £10 or so the same day as the phone was delivered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable value, 1 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was our second Happy Beds Ortho Royale Orthopaedic mattress, the first was bought about a year ago and has proved to be more comfortable than our previous mattresses which cost us more than twice as much. We will be buying a third when we get round to replacing a premium brand mattress which is showing signs of softness and sagging after about three years wear. Delivery and customer service were also very good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading description, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This pest repeller is advertised on the basis that it will protect a 4 bed house. We have a problem with mice or, most likely, rats scurrying within the wall cavities and loft areas within the house, i.e. behind solid walls and ceilings. Being a terraced house with interconnecting cavities and lofts, the rodents have spread to adjacent properties.

The instructions acknowledge that the ultrasound function, the only feature of this device which has any, albeit limited, credibility, will only be effective if it is located in the same room as the pest, it wont travel through solid objects. Rodents will remain comfortable behind their ultrasound proofed, inaccessible to humans, living quarters. So no full house cover here then.

The electro-magnetic interference feature is scientifically regarded as being highly unlikely to be effective, and remains unproven in any properly conducted field tests. The instructions note that the manufacturers believe that the elector magnetic waves in the house wiring (providing they are within 3 feet of the wires) creates an environment which prevents rodents nesting and drives them out of the house.

I have no intention of leaving my uninvited visitors to enjoy the peace and quiet of my home, setting up their own love nests within its walls and free to breed outside the 3 foot electro-magnetic exclusion zone. I will try and find out how they've got into the house, order a pack of rat traps and poison to exterminate them and make sure there are no unprotected areas of the house where they could get in again.

Currently, inspection has revealed that the most likely way they got in was through a worn and damaged redundant sewage pipe beneath the house, unused since our kitchen was extended more than 25 years ago. I have returned the pest repeller, which was not a good idea, and put the refund towards paying for the pipe to be repaired.
