5.0 out of 5 stars Great replacement, saved me a fortune!, 4 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I followed the guide over at Ifixit and it went flawlessly. taking out the motherboard is a really tense experience but well worth it now that I can properly charge my laptop again, no complaints here.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works really well! I bought it to boost the poor intermittent signal I got in my room and now my connection is almost 5x what it was before and doesn't cut out at all, definitely recommended to those with poor wifi signal. Its also light enough that you can stick it to stuff with blue tack.

FOR MAC USERS, to find up to date drivers (for mavericks onwards) the box has a RTL8192CU chip inside, so google that to find what you are looking for. The realtek one works great.

Also useful to note that the box does not support 5Ghz connections, so if you have a newer dual band router, it wont let you connect to the higher band, although it works fine for 2.4Ghz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and works fine, 8 Dec. 2011
Thin but feel pretty strong, no loss of sound or unwanted change in volume.

Fairly short, but they are definitely 1.2m, i guess i thought it would be longer. Delivered after a few days in good condition.


Eastern Standard Tribe

Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Read, 20 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Eastern Standard Tribe (Paperback)
Doctrow delivers with this little thought provoking book, I read it in a single sitting as it was a real page turner.

Doctrow keeps the novel length story concise at 242 pages by flitting between different events in time which keeps the book interesting throughout as the story slowly manifests itself and the details in the past and future line up.

Not a life changer or a classic but a damn fine read...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Performance, really poor design., 17 Sept. 2011
Pros: Very quick gen3 drive, Cheap for the size, sturdy and slim, light to show connection.

Cons: Hole at the back is too small for normal keyrings i had to find a slimmer ring to put it on because it wouldn't fit on my keys and then the plastic loop broke within a day
have to yank the cap a bit to get it off fits back on easily though
Drive is too fat for close together usb ports like on laptops so you have to detach anything else you have plugged in.

Seriously, the write speed is not worth the rubbish casing, get a better designed one, not this.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll never miss my lectures now, 23 Aug. 2011
I sleep fairly badly so I decided to get an alarm that will actually wake me up before I go to university and this was perfect.

It has everything that should be on an alarm clock, easy to set up, controllable volume (which is good because this thing is loud!), a screen that can be dimmed, big snooze button, solid build so it will last, vibrating dongle with long cord (absolute lifesaver), and ability to select alarm, vibration, or both.

And the most important thing, its reliable which makes it worth the price tag and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little mouse, 20 April 2011
I'll be straight with you, i bought this mouse because it was cheap and looked cool, and wasnt really expecting much in quality, but was pleasantly surprised...

Aside from looking very cool its Actually a very comfortable mouse, accuracy is not an issue at all, great for gaming and general us, expecially as you can change the track speed on the fly with the plus and minus buttons around the scrool wheel, and side buttons are fully customisable and well placed, definatly recommend for purchase for any everyday user or heavy use gamer.

Comes very well packaged with clear info and setup disk, worked like a charm as soon as i plugged t in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Amazing, 9 Jan. 2011
This game is near flawless, Rediculous graphics, Incredibly smooth gameplay, and interesing story and characters, You can play this game however you like, from part running and gunning to all out stealth, When i first saw my friend playing this i thought he was in a cutscene, it just looks so good, the boss fights are varied and suitably epic, gameplay is phenominal and maps are very varied, you just want to replay this time and again, an essential ps3 experience, literally cannot recommend this enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Brilliant, 22 May 2010
Took on a camping trip for a few days to keep my i-touch alive and really surprised, charges it really fast, a good two charges in it if not more, definatly worth every penny, great price too...

The only thing that I could say bad about it is it didn't seem to charge when ipod was off for some reason, but that was literally it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jaw Droping, Pulse Pounding Masterpiece, 9 Jan. 2010
To date this is top on my list of Single player campains, Literally the best game i have ever played, Story is excelent and there sure is alot to enjoy, took me roughly 16 hours first time round and i loved every second, controls are excelent feels really natural and dynamic throughout, Grafics are astounding as you travel through jungles, cities, mountains, caves and museums, sound is amazing right down to the music created from an orchestra with instruments made purely to give a sound the designers wanted, all round sensory Brilliance from every perspective, Online somtimes takes a while to find a match but that to is incredibly fun and balanced, both the cooperative and competetive modes. If you have a PS3, get this game, if you dont, Buy a ps3 and get this game, its that good!
