    Perfect

    posted by Bombyx on 05/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These AAA-to-AA converters are really good. They do not have any of the flaws some other converters can have. They are very well built and they seem durable. Their negative terminal is a metal plate with a spring (some other converters have just a hole). Th...
    Cons:
    The two halves snap firmly into place, but a screw thread may have been better (more durable).

    The very best of DX

    posted by Bombyx on 12/29/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    For less than $0.50 we get an efficient white LED, two CR2016 batteries, and a lovely plastic shell (which is small, sturdy, screw-fastened, and fitted with a toggle switch and a metal keyring).
    Cons:
    There is no resistor, which is bad for the LED and the batteries. More about this in the forum: http://www.dealextreme.com/foru...

    Outstanding value

    posted by Bombyx on 11/24/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The batteries came in a flexible plastic tray, stiffen by a piece of corrugated cardboard, and wrapped in clear packing tape. Not pretty, but very effective. I checked them with a multimeter, and they were all in the 1.68V-1.71V range. Impressive freshness!
    Cons:
    None I can think of.

    Nice flashlight, but weak laser

    posted by Bombyx on 07/30/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It operates on a single AA battery : a good compromise for a small flashlight, and a rare convenience for a laser pointer. The black body looks very nice, and feels heavy and sturdy. The build quality is fairly good. The light is bright enough for most indo...
    Cons:
    The laser is surprisingly weak. On a fresh alkaline battery, the red spot is about three times dimmer than that of my cheap 1-m...

    Awesome look, good sound, poor noise insulation

    posted by Bombyx on 07/25/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These earbuds look incredibly good. The build quality is simply perfect : I could not spot the slightest manufacturing defect. Thanks to well-choosen materials and well-designed details, these are simply the best-looking earbuds I have ever seen. I am no au...
    Cons:
    The main reason I ordered these earbuds was that they were said to feature an "excellent attenuation of ambient noise"...
