    Further reduction on a best buy

    posted by Budget on 06/28/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    An excellent product and a best buy for the number of emitters per dollar. Bright white. Easy for beginners to use as is, and cutable like the ribbon strips, at any three LED junction. There are good solder pads at each cut point if you wish to use shorter ...
    Cons:
    No cons since those arriving now are different to the one displayed in the customer picture and early revues. The soldering is ...

    I love this stuff and just keep buying more

    posted by Budget on 03/28/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent product where the fine nozzles allow for using just the tiny amount you need.. I don't bother with five minute epoxy anymore, I much prefer this stuff. Sets solid in about five minutes so you can even hold bits together for that long and not bothe...
    Cons:
    None at all.

    Full size optical mouse.

    posted by Budget on 03/28/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    An optical mouse with the usual features including the clickable scroll wheel. Clicking buttons have a crisp feel and the mouse works well.
    Cons:
    Some users may find this shape strange. I prefer the traditional egg shape for a full size mouse. The cord with the USB plug is...

    Just the thing for those spare laptop hard drives.

    posted by Budget on 03/27/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A well designed enclosure with good protection for the hard drive with insulating panels for electrical isolation and shock absorption. An attractive case with a good carry sleeve to protect from scratches.
    Cons:
    Assembly is fiddly with 8 tiny screws to put in place. You need to pay attention to the assembly steps or you will get the USB ...

    I like mine and will buy more

    posted by Budget on 03/27/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Just as the pictures show. Light and compact and easy to use with the adhesive tape. I use mine to plug in three GPS units at once and it handles that without trouble. The plug part is fuse protected against overload.
    Cons:
    A white LED is used to show the unit has power. It is a bit too bright for my preference. A subdued red LED would be preferred.

    A good little GPS unit

    posted by Budget on 03/27/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A good GPS unit with all the capability you would wish. Very sensitive to receiving satellite signals as are other units with the same Sirf III front ends. Well designed and effective windscreen mount.
    Cons:
    I prefer these small screen GPS units and find the display completely adequate. Novice users may need a little help if the incl...

    posted by Budget on 02/27/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    If you have a look here, you will see some excellent pictures of an application of this product along with some other best buys from DX. http://www.dreampod.net/boroma/leds.html
    Cons:
    There are none. I continue to recommend these as a best buy, well protected from those charging voltages by using 150 ohm resis...

    Excellent

    posted by Budget on 10/20/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Think of this board as 36 LEDs as each is a triple emitter, so at eight bucks it is a very good buy. Double sided circular circuit board with 12 150 ohm resistors. This suggests that protection from usual charging voltages will be adequate.
    Cons:
    Get rid of the sticky backing and let the air flow
