3.0 out of 5 stars Passable if you don't use a case and have a single spare battery., April 25 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Does it work as advertised? Yes.
It's pretty cheaply built though. Where the spare battery charges is sometimes tough to seat properly and the OTC USB port won't last long. Don't expect it to charge your phone with any sort of case on it at all. This is a bareback only charger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great NAS, horrible software., April 25 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you just want a non RAID NAS, then this is a fine little device, quiet and well built.
Do not buy it for its other features. The software is horrible, the apps on iOS and android are abysmal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed., April 25 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An odd device. Not that user friendly or intuitive, but if you need to network and old style USB printer, it does the job. Just make sure you, or someone nearby understands DHCP on your network so you can reserve/set a static IP and forget about it.
Just a heads up, This will stop any return communication from the printer that formerly worked over USB. Ink monitoring and other 'features' will stop working as the printer will be telling this device that info, but without the manufacturer's software to interpret.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the right purpose., April 25 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A lot of people complain about Drobo using proprietary RAID on their devices, but the fact is, if the hardware to access your RAID dies, it doesn't matter what's inside.
This device is great, with dual gigabit ports, and when used with a mSATA ssd for a cache, blindingly fast on a gigabit network.
The console software is a bit of a pain, as it's over designed and I'm not a huge fan of their app system as it is under designed, but when used simply as a remote RAID NAS, it's excellent.
My only caveat is that it is a bit loud when it spins up fully, I wouldn't want it on my desktop in my quiet home office, but if you can put it out of the way, it's not an issue.
To summarize, a powerful and fast NAS with single or dual disc failure resistant RAID, a bit loud and poor app implementation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big but worth it., April 25 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great device, nice carrying bag. Happily charges an iPad and phone at the same time. The micro USB cord it comes with is pretty cheap, but not complete garbage.
The build quality of the charger/battery is excellent. The flashlight feature is pretty pointless, but might come in handy in a pinch, if you don't need it in a hurry. The press and hold to turn on and off the flashlight is nice in that you don't accidentally activate it in the bag, but makes it a pain to actually use intentionally.
I would definitely recommend this for Ingress players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Option, quality product., April 25 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a 4mm thick filter, so make sure you have the appropriate holder/spacers, but it does an excellent job. I use with the Lee 100 system, primarily with a 17-40mm lens on full frame body (77mm wide angle attachment). Even in combination with the Lee big stopper I haven't noticed any degradation of image worth noting, colour cast or strange behaviour at the edges.
I look forward to testing it further on my large format film system.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly effective. Worth the price., April 25 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The USB port on my Galaxy S3 is less than reliable these days, so I was hoping for an option other than swapping batteries. This packages is all you need and, although no instructions were provided, it's quite obvious what you need to do. The charging works even through my thick rubber case.
Now, the heat created by wireless charging will undoubtedly shorten the life of my battery, but considering my device is already a few years old, I really am not concerned, my car mount in the sun likely does far more damage.
The charging pad itself is of middling quality, and as others mention, the micro USB port is pretty cheap, but since there's no good reason to plug and unplug it often or toss it around, it shouldn't matter.

LEE Filters 100mm System Foundation Kit

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect starter kit., April 8 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A solid well built kit for a 100mm (4") filter system. If you know what this is, it's a great product. If you don't understand what a filter system is or what it's for, you really probably have no need for this as it's expensive to start using filters.
You still require specific mounts to attach this kit to each of your lenses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great part of the lowepro S&F system., April 8 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: S&F Filter Pouch 100 (Camera)
Well built, nice dividers. This secures very well to the S&f system and means I can access all my filters easily at my hip.
I would not recommend this if you aren't interested in the lowepro system, but if you know what you are buying, it is great at its job.
