    Decent value

    posted by Badger on 03/08/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Solid construction, wide angle + macro in one, and does do its job of widening the view. The attachment is also nice and small, metal, and comes in a nice sack. It does not feel cheap.
    Cons:
    For testing, I tried this lens out on an 18-55mm kit lens on my D40, since it was the only lens I had with a 52mm filter adapte...

    Pretty nice for what it is

    posted by Badger on 02/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Inexpensive way to purchase a 405nm violet laser pointer. I've seen sites sell the equivalent for 5x as much as you find them here, and these are just as nice. It looks pretty bright even on surfaces which do not fluoresce. I accidentally left this thing...
    Cons:
    The measured 13mW I got on mine might be a con if you're concerned about accidentally blinding yourself.

    GREAT product at a great price

    posted by Badger on 03/30/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This 90 degree viewfinder attachment is a lot of fun. Now I can take photos at weird angles and such without having to get down on my knees to focus and frame the shot. The viewfinder is clear and easy to use. Not too heavy, but not cheap either. Install...
    Cons:
    I would've liked a 2x setting between the 3x and 1x it provides. Also the 3x blocks out some of the view (like the HUD below t...

    Great price

    posted by Badger on 12/16/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are very bright white LEDs in bulk quantity and at a good price. You get a big bag of them and generally they're in decent shape (maybe some might be slightly bent). Even in 100 quantities, at other parts stores these kinds of LEDs would cost about ...
    Cons:
    The leads are thinner than the other LEDs I've used. They're like DIP socket pins, rather than thicker header-type. This may ...

    Unexpected surprise

    posted by Badger on 12/04/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a stylish little grenade-shaped lighter that fits into you hand. It is made of plastic, with a metal pull-ring, but also feels nice and heavy. When you squeeze the handle, a flame emits out the top. One neat surprise I did *not* expect was that, w...
    Cons:
    For what it is, I can't complain.

    Cheaply made, but still really cool

    posted by Badger on 10/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a vertical switchblade knife and lighter combo. The switchblade mechanism is the cool part about it, since the sideways-switchblades are the kind which are mostly seen. It flicks in and out almost instantly. The lighter produces a cool green flame...
    Cons:
    The blade itself is probably good for nothing else besides stabbing. It's pointy, but not very sharp on its edges. It is also ...

    Good deal, but DX needs better packing

    posted by Badger on 09/05/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price of these button batteries is exceptional, especially compared to the cost of buying them in the store. The store will sell you one or two in some fancy package for the same price as all 20 of these.
    Cons:
    DX really needs to do a better job of packing these. When I received these, about half of them had popped out and got stuck to...

    This is an EXCELLENT webcam

    posted by Badger on 08/26/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is EXACTLY the webcam I've been looking for. Inexpensive, nice looking, and most important: DRIVERS. Why are drivers important? Because it gives you full control of exposure, resolution, face detection, and all those other GREAT FEATURES that you ca...
    Cons:
    The image is quite noisy in dark areas. The 1280x960 mode looks like it is just a blow-up of the 640x480. I don't trust the "...

    Decent for what it is

    posted by Badger on 08/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The pen came pre-charged and worked fine right of the box. Like the other folk here, the top of my pen was black, not silver, which I preferred. The fact that it has a USB connector on it can let people think it's just a jump drive conveniently packed int...
    Cons:
    *** WARNING *** WARNING *** WARNING *** The Storm3.exe file that comes on the CD with this pen appears to have a Trojan Horse ...

    Decent cheap webcam

    posted by Badger on 07/09/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This camera is really easy to set up and get to work in Windows XP. Just plug it in, and it installs. You can use Yawcam or just Windows's webcam system to access the video output. The camera is solidly built, and has a dial to adjust the brightness of t...
    Cons:
    Unfortunately, the driver that works with this camera on Windows doesn't allow you to adjust exposure or other camera-specific ...
