    It's pretty useful for embedded

    posted by CarlosLint on 10/31/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works out of the box with both Windows and Linux. You get additional +5v and +3.3v rails for free! Supports non-standard rs-232 speeds. Can handle RS-232 directly for RX. Funciona de imediato tanto em Windows quanto em Linux. Você ganha rails de 5v e ...
    Cons:
    Doesn't have an option to output +12v/-12v on the TX pin (like this same circuit with an additional MAX232-like IC) Não t...

    Works just as expected

    posted by CarlosLint on 10/31/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    As usual, it's cheaper than local stores. Also, it's well done, so you get what you'd expect from it. Como de costume, ele é mais barato que nas lojas locais. Fora isso, ele é bem feitinho, então você vai conseguir exatamente o que voc&...
    Cons:
    No cons whatsoever! Sem nenhum defeito!

    Great phone!

    posted by CarlosLint on 06/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Ok, this is a great phone, I'm really happy with it. - You get almost vanilla Android 4.2 (i.e. Android 4.2 with no additional software, unlike branded phones that always pack with some garbage altogether) - The software that comes with it can be either dis...
    Cons:
    - Biggest issue by far: It won't charge in a standard USB 2.0 port, even if you keep it on "Charge only" USB setting....

    good phone, but lacks google play

    posted by CarlosLint on 01/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Phone is fast enough - Dual core - Screen is bright (often too much) - Touchscreen sensor is accurate - Screen is also big - Come with 2 batteries
    Cons:
    The biggest issue by far is the lack of Google Play / Google Market. The device has one, but that's only available in chinese, ...

    Solved my problem

    posted by CarlosLint on 12/18/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Somewhat cheap - Impossible to find at local shops here - The cable is not terribly thin - It's 24 pins (20 pins would be useless) - It's sure that 30cm will fit and exceed your need.
    Cons:
    - 30+ cm is really overkill, I would rather buy a 10cm version out of this to conserve space on my computer cabinet. (And that ...

    more or less good

    posted by CarlosLint on 11/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It packs original android (all these tablets do, but I keep myself away from android customizations) - Includes a real gps receiver
    Cons:
    Software hands all the time, I mean, all the time, it does have a bug in the standby/sleep procedure, so you leave it in standb...

    cheap card

    posted by CarlosLint on 11/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It works great on Windows with GeForce drivers, so I can guess that it really packs a legitm nvidia GPU on it. - The price is around what an entry-level card like gt950 is around some places.
    Cons:
    - It will not work with nvidia drivers on Linux, don't ask me why, it just won't work. (tried that 2 months ago, maybe they hav...

    have not wroked on my astra

    posted by CarlosLint on 11/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It's cheap and work on nonstandard (with standard I meant OBD-2) protocols adopted by GM/Opel. - Comes with software. - Often you'll have to pay more just to let someone use a similar device on your car ONCE.
    Cons:
    - Does not support my Astra-G (1998~2002 version) engine, the car is brazillian, so I'm unable to determine who's the fault, st...

    best arduino deal I've got

    posted by CarlosLint on 11/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It's fully compatible with arduino. - Comes with everything that you'll need to start. (i.e. the board and a usb a-b cable) - FT232 IC is included, not the atmega serial. (Which is good for some, bad according to others)
    Cons:
    It's not the newer atmega2560 brand hardware. I doubt anyone will ever need that much of code space using an arduino, but since...

    works good on linux

    posted by CarlosLint on 11/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a tool that everyone which likes electrical engineering and/or hardware (and often software) hacking needs to have. It will not work on standard RS232 levels, which is somewhat bad, but for that you can buy a usb-serial adapter anywhere in the world...
    Cons:
    I think the only con that I might raise is that it don't pack a FT232 IC, which as a friend of mine says, is the best usb-seria...
