Cool and Fun! – USB 3.5" Plasma Ball Reviews

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.
Other:
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!
