    Fantastic light for the price

    posted by Chips11 on 06/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    great light. Flood-to-throw slider is fairly stiff, so it won't accidently slide to a new position. It's nice that it takes both AAA and 18650 cell. Sturdy light, no issues with being heavily shook around (like while riding a bike).
    Cons:
    Some people complain about the blue light ring, but it is really not a big deal. Other than that, no complaints!

    Fantastic temp sensor!

    posted by Chips11 on 10/10/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A wonderful, high quality Stainless Steel enclosed DS18b20 temperature sensor. You can stick it right into a pot of boiling water with no issues. Works very well with Arduino; tons of code available just google.
    Cons:
    The cable could be a bit longer. Also, I would not submerge any of the rubber/plastic bits, only stainless tip.

    great price for a DHT11 chip

    posted by Chips11 on 09/19/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very easy to use an interface with Arduino; simply copy and paste code from the arduino website and you'll be up and running. Seems to be relatively accurate. Temp not as good as the ds18b20, but good enough for most hobby applications. Humidity sensor i...
    Cons:
    They did some funny rerouting of the pins from the DHT11 to the output pins. Also, no labels on the output pins. You can see ...

    Amazing light for the price

    posted by Chips11 on 11/04/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Wow...what a difference this light makes over the standard built in flash on the camera. I use this in TTL mode on my Nikon D3000 and it works perfectly. The camera recognizes the flash and works well in auto flash mode. Recharge is very quick...much quic...
    Cons:
    Like other people have said, the battery door is very flimsy and feel like it will break.

    Great light, will definitely buy more

    posted by Chips11 on 10/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great light. Suprisingly high build quality. Very solid little light. Bright light, but now blindingly bright...just about right!
    Cons:
    Not too many, but you do have to get a seperate driver and understand basic electronics to hook them up. The seperate driver c...

    Fantastic, well built light

    posted by Chips11 on 10/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very solidly built flashlight. I've ordered quite a few lights from Deal Extreme over the years, and this one is by far the brightest and best quality. The brightness of this W5 rivals or is better than some of the larger $40 flashlights.
    Cons:
    Battery life is a little short, but the light is ultra-bright. Unfortunately this is a necessary tradeoff.

    A remote control that works!

    posted by Chips11 on 03/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Pros: -Came with a battery installed -Worked right out of the package. -I bought it to use with my D3000 and it works perfectly -Seems to be a nice wide IR beam (ie you don't have to aim directly at the camera)
    Cons:
    Cons Well if I had to find some fault, I guess the plastic body feels kind of cheap. Other than that, I can't find anything el...

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