BT Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender 600
BT Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender 600
Price: £39.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 26 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace an older Netgear range extender that post an upgrade to Sky Fibre Unlimited was exposed as painfully slow. I almost bought another Netgear (dual band) range extender but as much as I want like them I've had mixed experiences and the BT device looked like it had a simple and very helpful way of helping you position the device in the home.

Out the box this was super simple to set-up (using WPS) and paired immediately with my Sky Hub. Thereafter I tried various places in the house, which is where the simple lights on the front of the device came into their own - done in 5mins.

Most importantly though I'm getting the bandwidth I hoped for - certainly good enough for streaming videos without buffering, etc.

Brilliant device, Great Price.

(If you're new to range extenders you want a device that just plugs in the wall - no cables to trip over, standing it on the floor, etc) and it greatly expands where you can put it).

Exactly as it appears on the website- accurate sizing and fit in the phones themselves.

Horizontal lines when connected between a Surface Pro 3 and a Dell monitor. I bought a cheaper cable which worked perfectly - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00DJCB83O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, just works (Surface Pro 3), 7 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd bought another cable on Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003WVB86E/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) which when connected between my Dell screen and Surface Pro 3 resulted in horizontal lines. This (cheaper) cable worked perfectly - very pleased I gave it a chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different take on the zombie genre, 26 May 2014
Rather than heroics, a diary of day to day survival, a really good read and I'll be reading the next in the series.

A really great if melancholy book that I will read again in time. It is beautifully written, capturing the age perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 4 Oct. 2013

These replaced an older pair of the Bose in ear headphones. I find lots of in ear headphones very uncomfortable because they are too big, these arrive with 3x sets of silicon ear tips (S/M/L) that mean they will fit almost anyone. These are great for running the revised design means the tips don't fall off and the headphones stay in your ear. The short cable and extension cable is a great idea that stops you getting tangled up in the cable if you have your device in the supplied armband or a breast pocket.

Why 4* - the sound isn't fantastic. I suspect the noise cancelling equivalents will be much better, but at twice the price. These are good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taylor would turn in his grave, 18 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a worthwhile read for anyone running a company, leading a team or involved in management doctrine, after all we've waited more than 200 years for something to challenge Taylorism and here it is. If TQM made you weep and Six Sigma makes you want to stick your head in the oven to make the pain go away then this book will make a refreshing read.

The central notion is that the last decade of technology has put us in a situation where employees seek fulfilment as well as reward and the organisations that harness this will win out. With lots of pertinent examples to support this it makes for a thought provoking read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great device, one flaw., 14 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a long time Sony customer when it comes to clock radios I was disappointed by their offerings. Too many buttons, cheap build quality, etc. I'd recently bought the beautiful 'Expression' model for use in the kitchen which aside from being pretty has great sound. Hence looking at Roberts for a clock radio.

I went for this model based on price, functionality and appearance.

They are a little larger that I thought they were going to be (I bought two), but once in situ they are not obtrusive. The clock face is very large but the brightness can be taken right down. It is simple to use and the set-up was simple. The sound isn't quite as good as the Expression but is still very good and light years ahead of the old FM Sony clock radios they replaced. Having two alarms that can be set for different days is more useful than it sounds !

I'm very happy with the purchase so why only 4*. When the alarm goes off the volume slowly increases, playing the last listened to radio station, however it just keeps increasing to the max volume. If you wake up early and go downstairs then the whole house gets woken up when it goes off and you're not there. You should be able to set the max volume.

This is the third in the series and a very good 'page turner' Credible characters, interesting twists and a little humour. Good stuff.
