    worth the money

    posted by Alver on 05/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It´s a fun human-machine interface to arduino, kind of retro.. I can say that its pros are: It actually works with the Mega 2560. It´s educative. Display is brilliant.
    Cons:
    Not plug and play, had to invest some time, actually 2 hours to get it working properly. Had to google for documentation and ev...

    Best arduino shield ever!

    posted by Alver on 05/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Plug and play; I was expecting some hassle to get it working but it turns out to be "almost" a no-brainer. Example sketches from arduino IDE compiled and executed perfectly. Even the TF slot worked well too.
    Cons:
    None at all. I was expecting PoE but to be honest I don´t even have a switch supporting PoE, so it´s irrelevant.

    Good value but wifi has bugs

    posted by Alver on 09/09/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Exceeded my expectations for a low cost Android tablet. Touch screen sensitivity is OK, screen resolution and responsiveness above what I expected from a $100 tablet. Battery charge holds well when not in use. Google play works, some paid software have trou...
    Cons:
    Wifi consistently fails for no apparent reason after around an hour of use. Tried switching off and on Wifi, connecting to othe...

    Great value!

    posted by Alver on 09/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I've heard a WOW from my wife the moment we opened up the delicate blue case, she really liked it. When I said to her how much I have paid she didn't believe me...until I've shown her on the internet. Great value, shiny heart and necklace, beatiful. Thanks ...
    Cons:
    As said before by other reviewer, the clasp is really small and difficult to handle. She didn't succeeded in closing it on her ...

    Clear Lens

    posted by Alver on 09/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bright leds, really eases reading indoors or at night. Firm handling. Although lenses made of acrylic, they are rather well finished, magnified images are finely detailed on center, border image suffers from heavy astigmatism and color aberration though. Bi...
    Cons:
    None that I'm aware off.

    Great gift for women

    posted by Alver on 09/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Biggest pro was the huge smile I've got from my wife, she adored it in the first place. Super-cheap, at least in my country, one of these would have cost 4 to 5 times more. Her Sony Ericson W380 now call this bag home, fits nicely whithin it. Two little ext...
    Cons:
    Ahn, let me think; not leather, well who cares ... its ecofriendly ;)

    Handy!

    posted by Alver on 09/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works really well with 1.5V AA/AAA batteries. Tried also with 1.2V AA NiMh batteries and had a good response. When I say really well I mean OK/Weak/Discharged, that is the level of confidence you get with this tester. That's what I wanted from it in the fir...
    Cons:
    None that I'm aware off.

    Pros:
    Once assemblied, me and my 2 year old son had one afternoon of fun, launching this "hovercraft" all the way through my home, to my cats despair... he laughed a lot!
    Cons:
    -Assembly take some time. -Boat body (red "wing") is very fragile, of course, it's made of foam. -Batteries housing cap do no...
