    affordable, decent build quality.

    posted by Cameron86 on 10/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's stylish, and pretty cheap(at least compared to the prices in my area) Its also stamped with a recognizable brand name. Clearly its a knock-off as DX felt it was necessary to blur the name brand in their pictures.
    Cons:
    Since its a knock off, it probably does not function as well as a genuine thumb drive from said company. Also, the cap does not...

    Dirt cheap, but it still works fine.

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

    Pros:
    Its under $3, and uses readily available batteries. Also, since its so weak the batteries will last a ridiculously long time.
    Cons:
    The battery life is long, but the laser is pretty weak. You have the choice to buy a stronger less energy efficient laser if yo...

    Works great(its solder, by the way)

    posted by Cameron86 on 10/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Its decent quality solder.
    Cons:
    None. At least none that are not inherent with solder to begin with(Lead and flux are both pretty toxic. Dont breath the fumes ...

    Ridiculously good deal

    posted by Cameron86 on 08/15/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -They costs next to nothing. -They work great. -Metal construction is more then adequate for general use. -Using standard batteries makes powering this thing easy enough anywhere.
    Cons:
    -The tail cap is complete and utter garbage -The tail caps sold on DX do not fit this light(they are 14mm, this looks to req. a...

    Surprisingly well made

    posted by Cameron86 on 08/13/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Built very solid. The outer shell is metal, and the few areas of plastic(focus and zoom ring)d not feel cheap. Optics are great, and you have a LOT of space to adjust your focal point.
    Cons:
    You have TOO much space to adjust your focal point. When everything is pulled/screwed out, there is no possible way for it to b...

    Get rid of an extra adaptor when you travel

    posted by Cameron86 on 08/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works exactly as you would expect it to. Charge time is the same as if you were using a wall adapter. Build quality is good.
    Cons:
    None. If you know what this is and you buy it, you will be satisfied.

    Surpisingly light, but still well built.

    posted by Cameron86 on 08/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Compared to the $20 AA lights in my area, its dramatically brighter. Has a nice subtle design. Is pretty light compared to the other light i bought(C-8. sku.6131). I also appreciate the option to get this in multimode along with single mod.
    Cons:
    The fact that its lighter than the C-8(sku.6131) also makes it feel slightly cheaper. Performance wise though, it seems just as...

    Will make your flashlight stand out in a drawer.

    posted by Cameron86 on 08/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great quality. I used them on a C3 and a C-8. The provided stock tail cap on the C3 was junk, so its a good buy if you want to pick up that otherwise great flashlight.
    Cons:
    As others said, the nubs on the inside need to be cut down to the proper thickness. This couldn't be avoided though, since the ...

    Sturdy, reliable flashlight.

    posted by Cameron86 on 08/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is surprisingly sturdy. I bought this along with a C3(sku.4452) and this one feels considerably more solid. Also a bit heavier. The defense crown looks good and after gently pressing and spinning it against my skin, i can see it as a reasonable way to...
    Cons:
    Like others have said, there are too many modes. Personally, I think a simple low and high mode are sufficient. Also, there is...

    Simple interface and great compatability

    posted by Cameron86 on 07/31/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easiest to use of all the hack cartridges. Great build quality. Insanely simple interface(for young kids or technophobes this is great) and a very good value.
    Cons:
    If you're looking to do anything OTHER then playing DS games, this cart does not offer the features built into its firmware. Yo...
