    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Came well packaged.

    Doesnt create a humming sound when connected.

    The provided USB cable is pretty long, unlike other products seen online.

    Solid construction

    Cons:

    Not meant for use in heavy daylight.

    Plastic quality could have been better.

    OtherThoughts:

    Looks pretty cool in the dark. Opeartes off a 5V USB line, so buying a USB-Mains adapter may be suitable. No hum was observed during operation.

    The gadget uses a small flyback transformer to create the HV. This can create some RFI which can be solved by using a RFI choke on the USB line.

    Bottomline:

    Makes a wonderful gift. Mine currently decorates my workbench, but will look good almost anywhere due to the novelty of the item. Must Buy!
