Useful Item to Have. – Static-Release Wrist Strap Reviews

posted by mr_hanky on 09/02/2007 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Protects your equipment from static shock - Comfortable - Reasonable length of cable, could possibly be a bit longer - Great price, 5x less than most shops where I am - Crocodile clip can be removed so you can plug the cable directly to a ground socket if your workbench has one.
Cons:
- None?
Other:
These work well, simple diverting of any static discharge straight to ground (path of least resistance) saving any potential damage to your electrical devices.
Bottomline:
These are really worth buying if your going inside electrical devices, you can easily fry something important without one. Don't think it won't happen to you, I know someone who lost their graphics card to a small shock his would have prevented :-(
