A Universally Serious Ball! – USB 3.5" Plasma Ball Reviews

posted by falcon_1898 on 08/01/2007 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- USB connectivity for use anywhere - Comes with a wall-socket to USB adapter (100-250V) - Very nice decorative USB device
Cons:
- The PS-made base appears fragile (but one shouldn't throw this thing around anyway) - Audible booster circuit - Would be nice to have a mini-USB interface at the base - Mine didn't work without a driver (just kidding)
Other:
If a USB interface is kept throughout the unit, there is potential to develop a system that allows the user to modify the plasma from the computer. The unit draws about 500mA, so a powered USB hub is recommended (if the included power supply is not used).
Bottomline:
Great gift for a friend and for oneself.
