    works great to get a signal from PC to modulator

    posted by CWalters on 02/27/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is built quite well for it's price. I've connected this cable from my PC's s-video out to a channel modulator. This allows my PC to be distributed throughout the whole house to all TV's, great for a HTPC, DVR PC, or security cam PC. Also has ability...
    Cons:
    This cable is a bit long (good and bad) for the wire size used. This could be a problem allowing interference into the signal,...

    Brigh for small size

    posted by CWalters on 02/27/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a very bright source of IR light. If you deal with IR for experimentation, work, etc. this is a good buy. The construction seems very sturdy and will likely handle use in a less than delicate environment. Solder pads are large allowing easy conne...
    Cons:
    Only connection points are solder pads. For those with no soldering equipment this will be a problem. Despite the fair size c...

    Great buy for the IR experimenter!

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

    Pros:
    Very affordable! You get a nice quantity to experiment or build with. These are near invisible under normal viewing, while giving off a bright white when viewed with IR capable devices such as night security cameras.
    Cons:
    No datasheet for this item, the best you can do is find a datasheet for a similar product and hope for the best. Through my ex...

    Nice for cashiers, night club staff, mechanic etc.

    posted by CWalters on 02/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a very handy light, and the cheapest I've seen. It's constructed well and seems durable enough to take some abuse. It projects a bright beam fairly far in darkness, and is of close enough wavelength to illuminate markings on money, credit cards, n...
    Cons:
    Mine sucked down a set of AAA's in a flash. Maybe they were used, though they were in a new pile. I'll recheck with new from ...

    Classic. It just doesn't get any better than this

    posted by CWalters on 02/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is an interesting item, allowing the look and feel of a "real" phone. It's got to be better than holding a cellphone to your head all day, and much easier to hold. It worked with my Sanyo even though not listed as compatable. The adapter p...
    Cons:
    The instructions say there is a talk/end button to start and stop calls. It doesn't exist. The construction seems a bit fragi...

    Very bright for the price!

    posted by CWalters on 02/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright. Nice quantity for nice price. Works just like any other "black light". Has a nice distance in darkness. I've been able to illuminate a flourescent sign at well over 20 feet.
    Cons:
    Unmarked. Could be IR, UV, white. Who knows until you test it. I've marked mine with a black dot at the base.
