5.0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade, 7 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read the reviews yesterday morning, placed my order with Amazon, the item was delivered this a.m. and I was immediately up and running.

Now for the product: I found my old OEM GeForce 405 graphics card was starting to struggle a bit and wouldn't run 4K (pixelated and jerky at best). It seemed worth a shot to see if I could find an upgrade that would make a significant difference. The GTX 750 reviewed well as offering reasonable improvement for not too much money.

To install, I shut down my Windows 10 Acer machine, levered out the old GeForce 405 [tip: be sure to depress the catch at the inner end on the slot on the motherboard!] pressed the new card into place and on powering back up the machine came back to life immediately. The accompanying CD has drivers which install and update very quickly. Now runs 4k effortlessly. Very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased with this lens, 27 Feb. 2016

Very pleased with this lens. Bought mainly on strength of reviews. As others have said, it is quite heavy at full extension (so maybe good to have a tripod) and maybe too heavy for default use but it works flawlessly with the Pentax body, power focus perfect. Great results. Any faults on these two sample shots are entirely mine!

Oh, and great price too.

Case fits well. Difficult to apply screen protector but what else is new?

Very pleased with these. Right size and right grip (lack of) for me. First few washes seem fine. I've completely given up on M&S since their tops are much too tight.

Came without a lid. I see from a previous reviewer that this is not the first time this has happened


Verbatim 98243 MediaShare Wireless
Verbatim 98243 MediaShare Wireless

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well for SD card transfers, 12 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted this device in order to (1) watch movies on my iPad from a USB external hard drive and (2) back up photos from my camera SD cards while travelling. How does it shape up? Previous reviews pretty much say it all: set up is relatively easy and mostly intuitive but the indispensable Verbatim App is pretty clunky.
In operation
(1) I got movie playback to work immediately and it works well for me. However, as others have commented, if you use it with a portable hard drive, battery life is quite short at around 3 hours, because it has to power the drive as well.
(2) Maybe because of the way the app works it took me about an hour to figure out how to transfer files from an SD card to my external HDD. Part of the problem is the layout of the opening screen with "MyMediaShare" on the left and "My Device" on the right. Took me a while to figure out that "MyMediaShare" covers both the SD card and the USB device while "My Device" refers in my case only to my iPad. Duh! However the biggest snag is that the "create new folder name" function generates a bug and crashes the App. I found the solution was to create empty folders in advance on the HDD and then transfer files to these. That seems to work perfectly. I tried a self-powered wireless HDD as well as a wired HDD. The wired HDD seems to work reliably although as other have commented the transfer speed is a bit slow. Transfer speed to the self-powered wireless HDD was much faster.
The App
As I’ve commented above, the app is a bit clunky which normally would knock off a star. However, once you figure out how it works and what works for you (e.g. the folder-naming work-around) it does what it says on the tin and with a self-powered HDD it does it quite fast. There seem to be worse apps out there, so no marks off.
PS I found by accident that once you have the Verbatim device broadcasting its wifi signal you can log in to it either from ipad Safari or from your PC (making Verbatim the network for your wifi). Looks like quite a good app for reconfiguring it should you need to.
Overall
Good product for the price for backing up and viewing photos from SDD card. For prolonged movie viewing you either need a self-powered HDD or an external power source plugged in. Actually if all you want it for is movie viewing while travelling you would probably be better off with a self-powered wifi HDD - more expensive I know.
