1.0 out of 5 stars Hate to be negative but I had to return them - possible headset issue?, 5 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The problem I had was not being able to link the device to my Bose QC35 headset.

I normally have no problems with bluetooth syncing, from my Taotronics in ear phones with my Nexus 5X or Moto Z Play, the QC35s with those phones or with my Amazon Echo.
My bluetooth on my Chromebook is fine and dandy if I need it to pair with a mouse or headset. Basically I'm good on the bluetooth front.

However this device was a b*tch to pair. It worked once with me standing over it and with my headset in one hand urging the light to turn solid blue. The second evening it plain refused and it never synced again. Perhaps it's the new QC35s that I only got quite recently but they were the trigger for this purchase. It's a nice headset and to use them late at night to keep the tv sound off seemed like an excellent idea.

The fact that they worked once, after much gnashing of teeth, suggests they should work but there's something in my set up that must be throwing it. I used the optical connection to my LG tv.

Just a heads up in case someone has the same kit - otherwise I'm sure the MEE is a fine piece of kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid entry-level Chromebook, beware a glitchy setup which can be overcome, 21 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given the price of £105 it seemed a good time to get a backup Chromebook for my trusty Acer CB3-111.

Screen is an improvement but still is nicely non-reflective. Camera can be rotated away which is nice for the paranoid. Keyboard is a step up I feel on the Acer. It has a bit more response and so typing is definitely more pleasurable. Minor point but the power connector is positioned on the side which I like as when I'm charging the power source is most likely to the side somewhere.

But now a warning. Unlike my Acer which I had running from a cafe shortly after buying, the N22 did not play ball. I had a blinking screen which continued for about a minute, refusing all attempts to even open settings and then logged me out. Guest mode worked thankfully and I updated ChromeOS from there and I did get in but performance was patchy. This evening it was so bad I thought it was broken.
Thus for the first time on a Chromebook I powerwashed and finally the N22 started behaving. The whole thing feels snappy and handles multiple tabs very well.

Despite the processor clocking in lower than the Acer it's more power efficient and I have a healthy 9 hours left with a YouTube tab playing music. To be honest it feels fast enough.

In terms of looks it feels a bit chunkier and curvier than the sharper lines of the Acer with noticeable large top and bottom bezels. While it won't win any design awards, the weight is still about the same and that means it's very light and extremely portable. If only Windows laptops were this practical.

**TLDR**
To summarise, if you get a blinking N22, try guest mode and update. Then log in and powerwash to get the correct setup and obliterate any odd configuration issues.

Based upon my personal experience I knock off a star because there's no excuse for a Chromebook to arrive in a glitchy software state. However I recommend this wholeheartedly in terms of general performance and value for money.

I use this every day and it really works rather well to keep everything fresh down there. Better than talc or random sprays.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a neat little product, 1 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of those little purchases that works out really well sometimes. It offers solid protection for my credit/debit cards so I'm less likely to break them. And the RFID protection gives peace of mind.
What's really nice though is the way it opens and fans out the cards nicely for you to choose which one to pluck out. It opens and closes satisfyingly.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best quality blue-tooth in-ear headphones I have used., 16 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These felt great from the start. Good build quality and nice, large, clickable button on the right bud to activate and turn off. Connects quickly and does not drop the connection.
Battery life also seems impressive. Much, much better than the Mpow set I first bought.

Great value for money and I recommend them unequivocally.
