5.0 out of 5 stars A drive bay that works as advertised, May 27 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
StarTeck products are usually good and the SATDOCK22US3 USB 3.0
is no exception. The product arrived in a timely fashion in perfect condition.
I plugged in a pair of WD 1 TB drives and both functioned just fine.
There are certain limitations regarding copying or cloning drives that has nothing to do with the drive bay.
For example, you cannot clone 1 TB drive to a smaller drive even though the amount of data on the 1 TB drive
(the larger drive) is less than the size of a smaller drive. These perimeters are usually
spelled out in the cloning software being used. The latest
I use an 80 mm fan to keep both drives cool. I'm not sure how warm this setup
would get without the fan.
Heat is a big enemy of most electronics

4.0 out of 5 stars ... clearly demonstrated by this product but they are "way" better than expected, Feb. 17 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The old adage you get what you pay for is clearly demonstrated
by this product but they are "way" better than expected.
It took just over a month but they arrived undamaged and
they work. If you have normal eyesight and don't mind looking
like you have a serious eye problem when wearing these you
really can't go wrong for under 5 bucks, all inclusive.
They make a great addition to your, I wanna look weird kit. I really like them.
Cheers, pkw

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCELLENT Product. Be Sure to get the correct size, Jan. 8 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
01-08-16
Befit seems to be an admirable Company who stand behind
their products made in Europe.

I Ordered the LARGE BeFit24 Upper Back Brace
on December 28, 2015 and received it on January-06-2016
I measured around my chest as directed at the web site and
ordered accordingly, however, It seems too small.

I only weigh 130 pounds. Chest measures only 37" 94 cm.
Although it offers some desired support it is almost
impossible for me to attach those straps.
As shown in the diagrams, the straps go over your shoulders, under the arm pits and attach at the rear to the waist band with very aggressive velcro. This is a painful difficult maneuver due to my limited ange of motion at shoulder joints. I had to get my wife to
attach and remove the straps when I first tried to wear it.

I have a serious spinal injury made worse by arthritis and torn core muscles. Not a unique condition but very painful none the less.
The BeFit24 Upper Back Brace should offer the needed support
If / when I get the extra large and if the shoulder straps are long
enough to reach a more accessible spot on the waist band.

As it currently stands, the Large is of no use to me.
The Company replied by email saying they will ship
the extra large. I feel confident the solution they offered
will be what I need, making this an EXCELLENT product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Review of The Full Back Posture Support, Nov. 14 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Product was ordered October 30 and received Nov.3, 2015:
1 medium and 1 large, Product name: Full Back Posture Support
/ Posture Aid / Posture Back Brace / Shoulder & Upper Back Support.
Ordered both sizes to assure it might fit.
I am a very slim man, at 130 pounds. The large is pretty much to small
and the medium is to small. The 1 inch white nylon straps become all twisted
and next to impossible to wear with the straps laying flat making them a rope
rather than a strap.
My bad for thinking I could get a usable back support for that price and of that design.
What I got is some 1 inch nylon strap with some Velcro and a patch of canvas duct .
This product offered me no support of any kind and is a good joke on me.
I rely on honest reviews and trust this review will help you decide if this
product is right for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of Radio for the price, Oct. 24 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The UV-5RE Plus is a lot of radio for the price but you will need some patience.
learning how to use it.
Worth the effort IMO.
Suggest you do a search and get a better user
guide . It is readily available free of charge.
If you consider getting the programming
cable , get the Baofeng on NOT the cheaper one.
I learned that the hard way,

5.0 out of 5 stars Cable performed the task it was designed to do, Oct. 20 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Worked first try with ;latest version of CHIRP
with Win 10 x 64 for a Baofeng UV-5RE Plus radio..
Cannot comment on the software that came with it on
a mini C.D. because I don't use it.
I purchased the cheaper cable version but did not
work well at all...
Gave this item 5 stars because it arrived real fast and
compared to the other cable, this one worked..
My Win 10 x 64 machine did NOT need any of the supplied
USB drivers to be installed..

1.0 out of 5 stars Did not work for me, Oct. 20 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This cable may work for you but
it was a real pain getting this cable to
work in Win 10 x 64 with a UV-5RE Plus Radio.
It may be fine with older Windows versions.
With the latest CHIRP installed and correct comm
port selected it was VERY difficult to get this cable to
talk with the radio. The cost was cheap but to over a
month to arrive..
Suggest you pass on this and get the programming
cable with the Baofeng name on the USB plug.
The Baofeng cable costs more but it works.
Just got mine today from Amazon and it worked great first
try. This was a replacement purchase and arrived in two days.


Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800

5.0 out of 5 stars The Logitech K800 is a fine product, Oct. 4 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Logitech K800 is a fine product and is the most usable keyboard I’ve owned over the last 20 years.
The K800 replaces a Logitech MK-700/710 now acting as a spare.
The M705 Marathon Mouse from the MK700 combo works perfectly with the K800 Keyboard and unifying receiver.

This wireless keyboard is perfect for me. The keys have a great feel and I really appreciate the adjustable back lighting because I have a serious vision impairment. All the keys light up, white characters on black keys. The back lighting can be turned off to save power.

As most of you will agree, it’s a good feeling to get a product
that fills all your needs and surpasses expectations.
The supplied USB charging cable and 2 rechargeable AA 1.2 v - 2000 mAh batteries are named eNiTiME. I assume they are NiMh but there is no supporting text to confirm the chemistry.
Battery ID numbers are HR15/51 GSUYASA

With the keyboard back lighting set as recommended using motion control sensor, the 2 AA rechargable batteries last about 14 to 16 hours before needing a recharge.
Cheers, Pkw

1.0 out of 5 stars Dead upon 3rd recharge., Aug. 12 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Unlike the e260 The Sansa Clip Sport has a battery that is not replaceable.
The third time it needed charging, it stayed in charging mode even when disconnected from
USB power source. On Sansa models with a replaceable battery, many of these type of lockups
can be solved by disconnecting the battery and replace after 30 seconds.
This was basically a $50 error on my part. I do not recommend this SanDisk
product.

JBM® LCD AC Power Supply Adapter DC 12 Volt 6 Amp Adapter Power Supply for LCD Monitor with Power Cord
JBM® LCD AC Power Supply Adapter DC 12 Volt 6 Amp Adapter Power Supply for LCD Monitor with Power Cord

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 6 Amp power source for many electronic items.needing 12 volts DC, June 26 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There is not a lot one can say about this type of product
unless it arrived DOA which it did not.
The JBM 6 Amp. power supply is perfect for little 20 watt stereo amplifiers and a myriad
of other uses. The power "output" pin fits most and is the same size as the input socket found
on many laptops. So far it has performed as it should and hopefully plug in play and forget.
I use mine to power a 20 watt stereo amp with FM radio that requires 5 amps to run properly.
