Interesting thing, but needs perfection.. – Solar Powered Turn Table / Rotary Display (4 Panels) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Solar powered, nice design.
Cons:
A bit flimsy construction, needs quite a bit of light to work, noisy, (you can easily hear it in a normal room), and it struggles with things that weigh more than 50 - 100 gr.
Other:
I ordered two, and one did not work on arrival, the other one worked for three weeks before it got slower and stopped.
Maybe the solar panels should be on just one side? (The front.) Better bearings would also be a good idea.
Bottomline:
I really like this thing, and would be willing to pay a few dollars more for something that is more dependable. I see Dealextreme has another one with a front mounted panel, maybe I will order that one.
