SKU: D970-NRC-175 "Burst resistant..Hmmmmmmmm""Well, I bought several different sizes of these balls, as I wanted my 3 sons to build a bit of their "Core" muscles, while sitting all day long doing their schoolwork (I home educate them, & wanted them to have a bit more exercise) Well they absolutely LOVED them, so much that they wanted to take them outside when they do homework in nice weather (we have a wrap around porch) while "somehow" (hmmmm... I wonder) the youngest's ball ended up in the rose bushes, yep, punctured it in a blink!!So after a LONG lecture & threats of him actually PAYING with his OWN $$ for another ball, I reordered & they all again, have their own ball to sit on (They love them & Dad, "borrows" them to use as a "footrest" (after a hard day on his feet, they are so soft on the heels & comfy!)I HIGHLY recommend these balls, they have had them for a while now, use them DAILY & NO PROBLEMS!!

A quick and easy way to have a multiple monitor setup. Whats even better is that it allows my laptop screen to function as a 3rd display, which my docking station at work can't do. That's what I really bought this for. The pluses are additional USB ports, which are great because my laptop only has 2 USB3 ports. The 4 USB2 ports are good for a mouse and keyboard and other USB2 devices. I haven't used the ethernet yet, since I haven't run a cable from my modem. No on/off switch, but I use the switch on my power conditioner which also turns off my monitors and speakers, so I dont miss it at all.The multiple display was easy. Pretty much plug and play. Well, that is after I got them plugged in. Here's the issue with this, not a major issue by any means, but easy to deal with if you know ahead of time. If neither of your monitors have HDMI input, you WILL need to use an adapter. If your DVI input does NOT have 4 holes for the 4 pins around the flat slot pin, you CANNOT use the adapters that come with it. I thought hey, since they also had a DVI to VGA, maybe i could use both of those adapters and basically have HDMI - to - DVI - to - VGA for one monitor. NOPE. The way the adapters are gendered (male/female) you cant couple them. Luckily I had a HDMI-to-DVI adapter of my own laying around, otherwise I would have had to order one and wait for it to arrive.Also, if you buy an adapter, if you can get one that has a female HDMI input. That way you can connect to the dock with HDMI cable and the adapter goes into the monitor. The spacing of the HDMI and DVI ports on the back of the dock makes for a super tight fit for bulky adapters. I barely squeezed mine there.Great purchase. Just first look at your monitor before placing your order. If you plan on using two monitors and neither of them have HDMI, then check for those 4 holes for the pins surrounding the flat pin. If they arent there, you will need to order your own HDMI-DVI adapter. You dont need anything expensive. It'll suck if you have to wait for another delivery."Rating: Excellent (5 stars)Product: Thunderbolt 2 Docking StationSKU: P595-GTD720 "Better than expected""My LandingZone arrived on the day promised. I am based in Singapore, so I was surprised the estimated delivery was so accurate.I have been using the LandingZone dock to connect my 13" Air to my enterprise network and external monitor. It is certainly much more convenient than my previous daily routine of plugging in 4 separate cables. And I now have full speed 100BaseT network access (rather than through the slower USB adapter). To be frank, I am more impressed with the LandingZone than I expected!The design looks plasticky and hardly robust. However, once the clasp is closed it is rock solid! It doesn't slip on my desk and I still have access to the two side USB ports, SC card slot (occupied) and 3.5 mm audio port (occupied)! I haven't yet needed (or bothered) to use the 4 extra USB ports built into the LandingZone dock! The functionality is better than I anticipated. I am so impressed that I have decided to buy another for my wife. She uses a MacBookPro.I can recommend the LandingZone 2.0 Pro if you want to clear the cable clutter from your desk and still have full connectivity to your peripherals."Rating: Excellent (5 stars)Product: Thunderbolt 2 Docking StationSKU: P595-GTD720 "Great for (most) dual display setups""My company purchased one of these on my request, to try it out with our workstations. The members of my design team go to a lot of meetings, and it's a pain to plug/unplug 6 connectors each time, and the MacBook Pro sockets are already showing wear. We have a variety of Dell monitors (mostly U2412Mb) and the dock connects to them reliably, with one Thunderbolt (mini-DisplayPort) to DisplayPort cable and one DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable. It even supports the Dell U2515H (recommended), which is at the dock's highest resolution in dual-display mode. The single Thunderbolt connection handles the dual displays, USB peripherals, and Ethernet without a hitch. Unfortunately (thus -1 star), I have two nice HP EliteDisplay E271i monitors that I can't get the dock to support. It will correctly recognize both monitors maybe 1 out of 4 times that I reconnect the MBPro to the dock. My advice: Test the dock with your actual equipment to know for sure.Based on our (mostly) positive experience so far, we are continuing to purchase more Targus Thunderbolt docks. And I will swap my E271i monitors with another team."Rating: Very good (4 stars)Product: Thunderbolt 2 Docking StationSKU: P595-GTD720 "Not bad""Works exactly as described.

I fought with 2 other docking stations before arriving at a last ditch effort with the Kensington. I tried Toshiba's Dyna Dock which is very similar to the Kensington in style and functionality however fell short with reliability.I also tried Lenovos in house USB 3.0 dock which is, at of today, a firmware disaster. I think in months to come Lenovo will sort out the stability issues with their offering, but I am not willing to wait.The Kensington has been bullet proof since day one. No issues that I have been facing with the other two are present in the Kensington. I am very happy and would recommend this to anyone looking for a stable USB 3.0 dock that gives you desktop accessibility on a laptop.Only gripe is I wish it had more than 2 x USB 3.0 ports. But I am nit picking now, seriously, it's a great product.To the three star review, please try updating the Display Link drivers to the latest. The Gigabit Ethernet driver is baked into that. Can't fault Kensington for your issue. I have had 0 issues with the gigabit Ethernet choosing priority over wireless."Rating: Excellent (5 stars)Product: Wireless Air Mouse Ir RemoteSKU: P595-WKB4010UB "Looking for a dock? Stop! You just found it.""When it was time for a new computer, I wanted to go from a desktop and laptop (and copying things back and forth, etc) to just a laptop. But, at home, I like the "feel" and convenience of a desktop (full keyboard, mouse, big monitor; you know what I mean). This is a great docking station and gives me just the setup I want.It was very easy to install the drivers and it runs everything well. I run it from a USB 3 port on my lattop. In the station I have an 8 port USB hub plugged in (with 4 peripherals in that: Keyboard, wireless mouse, etc), and an external monitor and speaker set. All works well through this station and, when it's time to disconnect my laptop for use elsewhere, I just unplug the one USB (and laptop power) and I'm off. I don't recall if it is supposed to be "plug and play" but it is. When you need to add a peripheral for just a while, the 2 USB 3 ports in the front are very convenient.If you are interested in doing the "make my laptop a desktop at home" thing like I wanted to do, this is what you want and need (given you also need another monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc). If I ever need another one, I'll look first for a Kensington like this one."Definitely recommended.Rating: Excellent (5 stars)Product: Wireless Air Mouse Ir RemoteP595-WKB4010UB "I wish they had several lengths to choose from but I'm happy""I bought two pairs, one to connect one 12V battery to another in parallel (creating what they call a battery bank) and the other pair to connect the 2nd battery to a Whistler Pro-2000 power inverter. In my situation, a one-foot pair would have sufficed to connect the batteries and a two-foot pair would have worked to connect the second battery to the inverter. As it is, the arrangement looks a little disorganized but I wasn't out to win any awards for style. These are good, solid, high-quality cables that do the job. I've run the inverter under load for hours trying to test the limits of the batteries and these cables don't get even slightly warm. That suggests to me that they are providing very little resistance to the flow of electricity which is what you want for efficiency and safety.

Setting it up was a snap, just plug it in, follow a couple on screen prompts, and you're all set. No issues, no crashes, plays full retail games downloaded from the eShop without so much as a hiccup. If you are planning to go all digital with Wii U, I cannot recommend this enough. Perfect little companion. I've got it hiding in the entertainment center and you'd never even know it's there. Thanks mostly to the fanless design, I never hear it in operation. I can't comment on how well it works as PC storage, as I didn't buy it for purpose... But as a storage option for Wii U, I can not think of a single complaint."Rating: Excellent (5 stars)Product: 1tb Drivestation Axis VelocitySKU: P595-HDLX10TU3 "Velocity means 7200 rpm and it's looking great""Lets start with why I purchased this...well after running out of space on my internal 1TB SATA III Hitachi hard drive, I had to make a decision to either buy a second larger internal 2TB hard drive or go external to use for additional data storage. I weighed the benefits of getting an internal one...fast theoretical native SATA III 6Gbps interface speed, no desktop clutter/wires etc vs the disadvantages...fixed not removable/portable so cannot be connected to a router or laptop computer etc.I ultimately decided to go external because I definitely prefer the option of being able to disconnect the hard drive and connecting it to another computer or device such as a router for streaming/sharing. I'm aware that I also could share an internal hard drive over the network with other devices but that means 1) My computer needs to be on 2) My computer will slow down if another device is streaming content from it...been there done that. With an external hard drive I could just connect it to my router which has USB ports and it will automatically be accessible from other network devices without affecting my computer in any way. Not only that but when using USB 3.0 (5Gbps) and directly connected to a computer the theoretical transfer rate is not much slower than SATA III (6Gbps). Regardless the bottle neck will be the mechanical transfer speed of the hard drive which is around 125MB/s (1Gbps) anyway. Also even though the drive inside the Buffalo unit is a SATA II (3Gbps) model the mechanical transfer rate is still well below that interface's theoretical speed. Only when using Wi-Fi on my new Belkin AC1200 Dual Band Wireless AC Router does the theoretical transfer rate drop to 480Mbps but that's only because the router has USB 2.0 ports instead of 3.0. The router itself has a wireless theoretical 867Mbps data transfer rate on the 5GHz band.At the time of this writing this external hard drive was the same price as the non-Velocity model so to me it made so much more sense to get this one instead. The main differences between this DriveStation Axis Velocity and the non-Velocity model BUFFALO DriveStation Axis 2 TB USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive - HD-LB2.0TU3 is:1. 7200 rpm hard drive vs 5400 rpm2. 2 year warranty vs 1 year3. Optional hardware encryptionSo with the technical talk out of the way lets move on to the design/styling which quite frankly I found to be utterly slick. In my opinion it's one of if not the most stylish plastic cased desktop hard drives on the market. It's one of those pieces of computer equipment that you'd want to display proudly instead of hiding it under the desk or in a drawer. Just as the pictures show the sides are matte black while the center "water fall" strip/panel is high gloss. The only other desktop drives that look just as good are the brushed metal Porsche Designs but those also cost more. The case also has stylishly designed vents along the perimeter of the body. I suspect that when this drive eventually gets full I'll get another one. The stylish exterior design works well when stood side by side or stacked.Finally with regards to function and performance, I've found it to be acceptably fast and quiet right out of the box even without installing any of the included software and despite only using a USB 2.0 connection. After installing the hard drive caching application Turbo PC EX which is included on the drive, transfer rates seem to improve when copying a large number of files. Since USB 2.0's theoretical transfer rate is lower than the hard drive's mechanical transfer rate I suspect using USB 3.0 will be quite a bit faster. Buffalo says real world speeds using USB 3.0 will be about 4-5 times faster than USB 2.0. Unfortunately at the time of this writing I do not have a computer with USB 3.0 ports so cannot test this claim..though there's no reason why it wouldn't hold true. When connected to my Belkin AC1200 router it worked fine as a NAS drive and I was able to stream HD 1080p videos contained on the hard drive wirelessly to my computer and even my iPhone 4 smoothly.On a related note one cool feature of this drive is the tri-color activity/power/locked LED. When in USB 1.1/2.0 mode it lights up green while in USB 3.0 it's blue. When using encryption mode the LED is red. Another nice feature of this drive is the option to install a cooling fan via a user removable mounting bracket on the back. This is a very "cool" option for situations where you're backing up lots of data which may take many hours to complete and where the ambient room temperature may already be warm or hot. Anyway for my mode of usage (media/file server) I did not enable the hardware encryption function nor did I install the RAMDISK or Back Up utility."Rating: Excellent (5 stars)Product: 1tb Drivestation Axis VelocitySKU: P595-HDLX10TU3 "Easy, inexpensive and effective!""Fantastic, easy, inexpensive fix to my computer problem.

Posted By: Joseph Earl Carder "Problem solved!" "The perfect solution for my problem.
I recently moved from a troubled desktop Windows PC to a new Mac laptop.
I broke the PC down to its working components -- some to give away, some to sell -- but the system wasn't operating properly and I didn't have a chance to first erase the HD: a Western Digital 1TB SATA unit. (At that time, I was planning to part with the drive too, but I didn't want to give away my data.) And as a result I was stuck with a drive I couldn't access.
Could I do anything about that? I checked in with a tech-savvy friend. And enter Thermaltake's BlacX.
The hard drive plugged into the unit effortlessly. (The HD's own weight made the connection.) I connected the BlacX to my MacBook Pro (then running El Capitan 10.11.5, now Sierra 10.12.5) with the included USB cable. I plugged in the power cord and turned on the BlacX. The hard disk then appeared on the Mac's desktop and I was able to use the Mac's native utilities to erase the drive.
And now I have a whole terabyte of extra HD space at my disposal. I'm using it to backup the Mac.
Something from nothing. How often does that happen? Maybe I won't get rid of the drive after all." Rating: Excellent (5 stars)Product: Blacx Duet Docking Usb3.0SKU: P595-ST0014UD
Posted By: Peter Olafson "A Geek's Friend" "If you're like me and have a plethora of homeless drives laying around, than this is for you. Drives are getting bigger and bigger while simultaneously decreasing in price. This usually results in keeping the biggest and best setups as your main stay backup external storage volumes. What you end up with after all this upgrading, even if its not so frequent (as in once a year), is drives without a use. Now it would be really wasteful to buy a bunch of extra external cases just to keep all these unused drives in. So this dock makes all those unused drives very useful again, without filling your wall up with warts or your USB slots with endless external drives. This product is not a Thermaltake product as such, it's just rebadged by them. I would have hoped they would have opted to use the more versatile edition which included USB 1.1/2.0 FireWire 400/800 and eSATA, however I imagine they went this route to keep the cost down, as not to many people need the speed of those other faster interfaces. All in all this product is solid, even though its made from plastic its well weighted and doesn't walk or shutter as the drive is in use (even with a 10,000 rpm Raptor drive inserted). The vertical placement of the drive seems to perform well in both allowing gravity to "seat" the drive in place as well as allow for adequate cooling. I would however not recommend you leave a "docked" drive always on as it would not be wise without some sort of external cooling especially when placed on an electronically cluttered desk. The dock serves more as a quick backup tool and allows for convenient incremental storage of critical files, which can then be ejected and stored in a small safe for fire/water protection or in a closet, so as to not be physically connected to the machine 100% percent of the time. Its peace of mind for your photos/videos or other family files that insurance can't pay for. I own two of these docks and have to say that buying this has made my backup regiment a hole lot more viable. Plus who really wants a desktop cluttered with a bunch of external drives when all you have to do is keep naked drives in a drawer/safe with labels taped onto them for offline backup. This dock is so versatile that I was able to use it to recover the game saves on an Xbox 360 that failed due to dreaded "ring of red lights" hardware failure. This is important to note, as this dock was made to handle both full desktop sized 3.5 inch drives as well as the notebook 2.5 inch drives, which the Xbox 360 uses. The only possible weakness of this dock is static discharge, as you are handling the drive without any kind of shielding or covering for the exposed electronics its attached board. To alleviate the risk of possible damage to the drive from static, I'll generally grasp an exposed metal section of my machine prior to attempting to handle a drive to discharge any static I might be carrying. It would also be wise to avoid grasping the drive by its electronics board directly instead holding it by its edges as you would a deck of cards. In conclusion I would have to say this is a great product at a great price. And it will give a home to all those drives you thought you were going to have to destroy or sell on eBay."

Simone "I like this toaster so much, if it burns out, I'll buy another one exactly like it.""In an age of toasters with endless lists of ridiculous features, lousy gimmicks, too many buttons and nonsense that constantly breaks, this toaster is a blessing. It took me a month of casual searching to find it, and boy I sure am glad I did.Get this - it's a TOASTER... you put bread in, push the lever down. time passes. The lever pops up and BEHOLD!!! Toasted bread! No egg poachers, no cartoon faces, no digital read outs, no buttons. It's AWESOME."Rated 5 out of 5 starsProduct: Betty Crocker 4-slice Toaster (pack of 1 Ea)SKU: X662-RA28687Posted By: Bob Perye - Rogue Estate BBQ "excellent system, for canoe/kayak you won't be disappointed""I just put this to good use this past weekend. I have a Mackinaw canoe and due to several factors I opted to use this with the Scotty 449 clamp mount. Mounted to the front of the canoe I was able to easily raise and lower a 20 lb. anchor.Lowering one handed is a snap. May just buy one for the back end of the canoe just for the ease of lowering and holding the anchor."Rated 5 out of 5 starsProduct: Scotty Anchor Lock w/244 Flush Deck MountSKU: A795-35508Posted By: Bradley "Best anchor lock you can buy""These things are great, they hold a 12# anchor with no strain on the plastic frame that I can see, they flex very little. I don't think I'd trust it for more than 15#, I had a homemade anchor attached to one of them that must have weighed 20# and it flexed some, so I bought another 12# river anchor and use that instead. I love the fact that I can pop these out when I want to put my boat cover on.Best on the market IMO."Rated 5 out of 5 starsProduct: Scotty Anchor Lock w/244 Flush Deck MountSKU: A795-35508Posted By: Will "Great anchor lock for solo canoe fishing""The anchor lock is great. I installed it very easily on the bow of our old town discovery sport canoe. When out in the canoe on my own I can easily raise and lower the anchor from anywhere in the canoe without having to move around. Just lift the anchor rope up high to release the lock and let down the anchor then lower the rope and it easily locks in place. Pulling the anchor up is just as easy. The only thing I've run into with it is that occasionally if I don't hold the rope above my head while sitting and adjusting the anchor the lock will lock into place when I don't want it to, but when that happens it's very easy just to lift the rope and quickly unlock it."Rated 5 out of 5 starsProduct: Scotty Anchor Lock w/244 Flush Deck MountSKU: A795-35508Posted By: jwagonr "Outstanding product.
