5.0 out of 5 stars Worked with 2010 MacBook Pro, April 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Worked great with my MacBook Pro and a SolRepublic headset. Volume, play / pause, and mic work fine. Note that you *must* plug your headset into the extension cable *before* you plug the extension cable into your computer. If you plug the cable into your computer first, it does not work. Make sure you plug your headset in all the way too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, December 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a partial answer to the problem of low-end iPads not having enough storage for lots of media. It works very smoothly. The app is easy enough for my kids to use. A side benefit is you only have to load media files once and multiple devices can view them. I do wish that the admin could disable the ability for regular users to delete files.

Notes for techies:
You can set this up as a "client" for your home wifi network, then access it from other devices connected to your home wifi.

When on the road, it creates a wifi hotspot devices connect to. However, my iPhone thought this was an internet connection and couldn't receive internet data while connected to the device.

Movies loaded on the SD card show up in the app alongside movies loaded on the device's built in storage.

You cannot connect to the device when it is plugged into a computer. You can connect and charge using a usb charger.

I love that it has a built in battery.

This thing is quite a bit smaller than an Apple TV. Surprisingly small.

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality. Pairs well with Seiko solar diver watch., November 29, 2013

This band is high quality and fit my Seiko solar orange diver nicely. I like that the length adjusts by using tiny screws instead of push pins.

Nice high quality network cable. Works great. Packs up small. Love the bright orange! It's cheap, so get a few different lengths.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like it with a Brushed Engineer 20mm band, September 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really like this watch. It feels high quality. The stock rubber strap was extremely stiff. So I swapped it for a stainless steel one. The brushed engineer 20mm band fits it perfectly and is excellent quality. ASIN: B005JV8CZU.

3.0 out of 5 stars It Works, February 27, 2013
This cable works as intended. The other smaller adapter port is so that you can charge your iPad while using the VGA connection. I think the price is to high on this cable, just like other Apple cables. However, the Apple build quality is great, so that makes the pain a bit less.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but dots rub off., February 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My wife likes this watch quite well, however the cute dots wear off a bit quickly where the band rubs the clasp. The band doesn't bother her sensitive skin, which is a big plus. One interesting thing we learned from the similar red polka-dot watch, don't let the band contact Silly Putty. The Silly Putty was almost impossible to wipe from the band.

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective, February 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This kit contained all of the pieces needed to hook up IDE and SATA drives, both laptop and desktop. However, the power supply for this item never worked. Without the power-supply it is not possible to use it, even for laptop hard drives, which ought to work using just the USB supplied power.
