Very disappointed to receive this and instead of the RF compatible pi-mote inside, it included the infra-red pi-mote version!!

Now too late to get it switched in time for Christmas.

First time I've got anything from Energenie, annoying they'd packed the wrong board and wasted my time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works fine with Pi, 1 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cable in the Amazon photo is different to the cable sent and bizarrely the Amazon description says UK made, yet it came in a bag that said Made in China?! However it does what I wanted it for and works with the Raspberry Pi.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work with Sony TV, 1 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this cable to connect my sons laptop to a Sony TV, however sadly the TV doesn't recognise the laptop is connected, the PC connection input is greyed out. My short PC vga cable works with the Sony TV, but not this 5m cable. Maybe one of the pins isn't connected or there is signal issue with this long cable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works Win and Linux, but not with the Raspberry Pi I got it for, 1 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this for a Raspberry Pi, but it doesn't work, it only occasionally flashes using Raspbmc or other distros. Dmesg shows it is constantly recognised and disconnected repeatedly. My Pi is one from the early batches and possibly is a power issue with the usb polyfuses. I used this nano Edimax dongle in a laptop using Windows and it works fine. I've also got it working under Linux on a desktop using SolusOS, debian based.

1.0 out of 5 stars never despatched by Amazon, 3 May 2011
Never despatched by Amazon, waited over a month, very poor nobody at Amazon had the courtesy to update me, what a waste of time. Probaby the item is okay, but I'll never know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent pocket computer and phone, 10 Jan. 2010
This Maemo powered Nokia N900 is excellent. The web browser is superb, a proper web browser that does flash, so you can watch youtube. The browser works well on the screen with gestures to zoom in, like double tap. The camera is cool, 5 megapixels and it geotags the location you took your photo using the builtin GPS. Video is good quality too, I've since download Qik and can send videos live to the web. Mediaplayer is good, very good quality watching films, the builtin in speakers are loud and it has TV out to watch on a larger screen. Neat thing is that it has a built in FM transmitter, so listening to music in the car is easy using FM, the N900 even makes your car radio say Nokia on the radio!

It is has an application manager to download more apps, with Ovi shop to follow soon. All applications can be run at the same time, with proper multitasking. Plus as it is a computer, it comes with the x-terminal, so you can do geeky stuff. And of course it is a phone so not only can your get connected over WiFi, you can use 3g and make phone calls. The contact manager groups contacts for phone calls, Skype calls, SMS, instant messages, with a conversations application to view all conversations by contact, making it easy to track conversations, or start new ones.

In all in all, I highly recommend this smart phone.

3.0 out of 5 stars It isn't a Integral branded reader, it's branded King of Flash, 10 Jan. 2010

Works okay, but surprised it was branded King of Flash and not Integral as per the product title and photo.
