4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value for Money, 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this speedlight five months ago for use on a Canon 700d.
Visually, the quality of the flash is equal to that of its much more expensive canon rivals.
The interface can be somewhat confusing at first, to turn it on you must hold down the power button for several seconds, which took me a while to work out.

Battery life is excellent. The flash takes 4 AA batteries, and I rarely have to change them.

On a less positive note, the build quality was somewhat disappointing. After roughly 5 months of near - daily use, the IR receiver on the front of the flashgun broke off, however this was easily fixed with some glue.

Overall, this is a great flash for people on a budget, and lighting quality is similar that to the canon flashguns (which are several times more expensive). However, it doesn't feel nearly as solid as its canon counterparts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality audio for a very cheap price!, 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to pair it with a very high end pair of B & W speakers. It was connected to my Windows Phone to stream tracks mostly encoded in 256kbits

Advantages:
Range - the adapter continued to work even in another room
RCA output - Easy to connect to amp
Sound quality - whilst it is possible to hear the difference between wireless and cabled, it is hardly noticeable

Disadvantages:
None thus far

The issue with Bluetooth compression was admittedly noticeable, however this is a problem that affects all Bluetooth transmitters.

It arrived quickly and was packaged well. In the box was the power supply, a basic user manual and the transmitter itself. There was no RCA cable included, which was disappointed.

Overall, this is a great Bluetooth receiver that was easily worth the money

2.0 out of 5 stars Very fiddly case even with small cameras, 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for use underwater, however upon testing it it would not effectively keep water out, and a small amount of water leaked in. Also, the plastic over the camera lens severely affected the quality of photos taken.
I would suggest spending a bit more for a far superior product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful as a very cheap sound card, but terrible build and sound quality, 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this after the sound card in my laptop failed, and I was somewhat disappointed. The second time I plugged it into my laptop, it snapped into two pieces.
When in use, the quality of sound was very poor, but that is to be expected from such a cheap device.

The only reason I gave this three stars was because of the value for money it offered. It would be useful in circumstances where sound quality would not be critical.

3.0 out of 5 stars It works, and looks similar to the orginal, 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The charger arrived quickly, and was packaged well.
It was used with a Macbook Pro 2010, and the charger fits into the laptop as the original did. However, the transformer does tend to get very hot after about 2 hours of usage, and I often have to unplug it to let it cool down.

Other than this, quality is excellent and it looks and performs the same as the original

The only reason why I gave it 3* was because of the heat problem, otherwise 5*
