2.0 out of 5 stars Price is attractive but I couldn't get it to take a shot in focus., 30 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I should preface this review by saying that I was attempting to use it with a Nikon D3100 camera which does not fall into Nikon's "pro" category. The first problem is that the camera will not allow you to set the aperture (f8 in ths case) so you have no help with exposure whatsoever.
However, I could have overcome this by trial and error or using an external exposure meter. What caused me to send the lens back was that I simply could not get a shot in focus. I tried many times and the subject appeared in focus in the viewfinder but when I got the picture on a computer it was completely out.
This is a shame. I bought this lens because of the price and because it was a Vivitar. I have used Vivitar lenses very successfully with manual Olympus cameras in the past. The lens seems well made and is relatively compact. Once comment is that it is difficult to get the T-Mount tight enough and there is a tendency for the whole lens to turn. The package came with a 2x Teleconverter. This was a complete waste of time. I tried it once and the focus was even worse. It also makes the lens feel unstable on the camera body.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality nice bag but check the dimensions., 11 Mar. 2016

Smaller than expected but no excuse because the dimensions are shown! Only issue is with small packing which means that it takes quite a while to unfold. Otherwise a very good quality product. Maybe a little expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works exactly as advertised., 19 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I hesitate to give 5 stars to a TP-Link product because their longevity based on previous experience is not 100% assured but as far as this product is concerned, the Powerline Ethernet adapters work perfectly. I needed to connect two network printers in a room which does not have any network points so decided to try this. I connected the first Powerline into a network point in another room where a power point happened to be next to a LAN port. The Powerline is connected thus to the network switch. I put the other Powerline unit in the room with the printers and connected both printers to it. They work perfectly straight away.
The build quality seems perfectly good. A minor design gripe is that I think the network sockets would be better at the bottom of the unit rather than on the top for optimal cabling but that's only a nitpick.
As for TP Link longevity? That remains to be seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars More substantial than it looks in the pictures., 13 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was hard to tell from the pictures just how substantial this mount would be but it arrived today, a day earlier than estimated, and I don't think I need have worried. It is very solid and substantially made. It took about 15 minutes to mount 2x 22" monitors on it and they fit well and are easy to adjust. The clamp on the back of the desk fits well and seems to be very stable. After a day's use, so far I can recommend this product. The price of £29.99 was good value and the shipping price was reasonable considering the weight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple but effective, 25 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A simple but effective wall mount if you don't need the ability to change the distance from the wall. It has tilt and swivel and rotation capability. It's a shame that the sizes of the screws aren't better matched so that washers aren't necessary but that is a minor niggle. The price is fine for the type of product and it does exactly what I needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as described., 10 Nov. 2014

Good product which does exactly what it is supposed to do. The fact that the splitters have captive cables makes them better than others which require an additional patch lead.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good and fully featured product, especially for the price., 10 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good product. The TV has a bright crisp screen and there are many features for the price. As always the user interface is a little awkward in places. I bought it and set it up for elderly people new to the Internet and to smart TVs and they find it a little confusing in places. For anyone familiar with such things, it is fine. The user manual is absolutely useless.
My only criticism is of the fixed feet which offer no tilt adjustment and seem a bit "cheap".

Early days yet but the cable seems good. Solidly made with strong terminations, it looks a lot less likely to break or wear out than the cheaper versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it claims and does it well. Longevity to be determined., 4 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's early days yet as I just installed this and so can't comment on it's longevity but the product does exactly what it claims to do and is well made. The mains powered sounders work well - I chose to buy two as I work from home and so one in the office and one elsewhere in the house. The bellpush unit is substantial and comes with screws and a double-sided adhesive pad.
It works well and the sounders have adjustable volume from comfortable to deafening. You probably wouldn't use anything except the "ding-dong" sound as most of them are pretty cheesy but each to their own.
