    Good protective holster

    posted by 5chars on 06/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This holster DOES fit SKU 57007 (great flashlight too) nicely. It will stretch enough to insert 57007 in head first if you want the added security from it falling out, and is slightly padded with thin foam. Snaps and velcro are of decent quality. Is does h...
    Cons:
    None for the price.

    Great little HTPC / Carputer keyboard

    posted by 5chars on 12/04/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Pleasantly surprised when I received the keyboard. I had purchased a previous handheld kybd/mouse and never realized it was missing keys (TAB among others), This one has all the keys you would use on a regular sized keyboard (except PAUSE and CAPSLOCK). On ...
    Cons:
    The mini usb port is to recharge the battery only, you can NOT use it as a wired keyboard. The four blue leds in the top left c...

    Good buy!

    posted by 5chars on 04/19/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Surprisingly good quality materials and build. The sheath and handle insert is made of nylon, not cheap plastic. sheath has a whistle on one side, plain (as pictured) on the other. The knife itself has a good feel/grip in my large hands. It's marked with "S...
    Cons:
    The latch that holds the knife in the sheath is ok. I don't feel that it will fall out on it's own, but if using it as a neck k...

    Poor quality material

    posted by 5chars on 04/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Long lanyard, thick striker, handle securely mounted to firestick
    Cons:
    Very little flint in the firestick itself. It will spark, but takes a LOT of effort and force to produce enough spark to start ...

    Very Cool

    posted by 5chars on 10/25/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    The LEDs are bright and vivid. They are the "top hat" LEDs so the light is disbursed instead of pointed in one direction. Eight different patterns is a nice feature, thought he timing on a couple of the patterns could be improved if it didn't go t...
    Cons:
    If you are in the US and used to normal miniature Christmas lights, the wires are this set are thin, making me treat them as fr...

    Not coffee flavor

    posted by 5chars on 08/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I purchased the coffee flavor because I loved the coffee flavor that I've purchased elsewhere. I had previously purchased http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.39323 which is Marlbo flavored and they both taste EXACTLY the same, no coffee flavor at all.
    Cons:
    I was sadly disappointed in what I received. If I didn't have something to compare it against I think I may have said that it h...

    It really does work!

    posted by 5chars on 07/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It actually does work, and disappears completely within about 3 to 4 hours. I didn't notice any significant difference after 24 hours. Came in a nice little storage case (pictured) so you don't confuse it with other pens. Looks and feels just like any ball ...
    Cons:
    You have to write lightly, else there will be this faint "watermark" that remains after the blue ink disappears. Also...

    Not too bad at all

    posted by 5chars on 06/18/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    I've owned other eCigs in the past. I'm a heavy smoker and took a chance in the hopes that a eCigar would be as strong as my heavy smoking habit, and it actually is. After charging the battery for 12 hours (like the manual tells you to), I get a good strong...
    Cons:
    It comes with a 220VAC European plug, so be sure to buy an adapter (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3502) if you're i...

    Works fine on PC, not MAC's

    posted by 5chars on 05/24/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This USB-to-PS/2 adapter states on the package itself that it DOES support Mac. Unfortunately, I tried it on multiple Macs (Mac mini and Mac Book Pro) and it's not even detected. When you plug it in a Mac, you do get the dialog box to press certain combinat...
