    inexpensive way to assure food safety

    posted by Albaum on 06/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    While this device is not as nifty-cool as others you will find on DealExtreme, it has a straightforward, practical purpose: to make sure the food in your freezer or refrigerator is kept at a safe temperature, without going overboard and keeping it too cold ...
    Cons:
    It's not clear to me that the clip (which was not obvious in its design) will be able to withstand prolonged freezing temperatu...

    good mount, weak flashlight

    posted by Albaum on 06/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The "universal" mount does fit, only slightly imbalanced, my Streamlight Microstream. It pivots and rotates nicely, and folds down to a compact package. The clip feels strong and hefty.
    Cons:
    This AAA flashlight is somewhat stronger (but with a more blue cast) than my Photon Micro-Light 3 running off a many-months-old...

    decent whistle, inferior compass

    posted by Albaum on 06/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Whistle works fine.
    Cons:
    Compass is not liquid-filled, and is difficult to keep level to get a decent reading. I would not rely on it to get any kind of...

    cheaply constructed but I'm satisfied

    posted by Albaum on 06/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Another inexpensive and useful product from DealExtreme. I had been looking for months for something to protect my Olympus DS30 voice recorder (which is slightly wider but otherwise similarly dimensioned to a Victorinox SwissTool RS) -- this is EXACTLY the ...
    Cons:
    Build construction is rather poor. I had to cut hanging threads from both of the ones I received. The metal D-ring on the back ...

    handy device

    posted by Albaum on 06/23/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This tripod supports my Canon SD300 well, even though the adapter is not on the axis of the center of gravity (it's centered on the lens). I don't find I need a tripod often, but when I do, this is a great device: it elevates the camera (being much more han...
    Cons:
    Unlike some similar (but substantially more extensive products), this won't wrap around branches or poles. You can only use it ...

    excellent product, especially at this price

    posted by Albaum on 06/23/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This does exactly what it is designed to do -- extends 3.5mm audio cable. It's an absolutely perfect, essential item to hook up my Logitech 28mm speaker to my PowerBook G4.
    Cons:
    Male/female connections don't fit exactly -- I'm not sure if this is due to the cable design or to the design of my own devices...
