    Works perfectly and provides piece of mind!

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

    Pros:
    After watching the second episode of Mythbusters where they tested escape from a car in water, I figured I'd take the punt and order two of these for my cars. I'm in construction and had a few windows being removed that I could test this on. One small swin...
    Cons:
    The plastic handle is a bit weak and would have been better served being something that can't be crushed or damaged in a crash....

    A near perfect cover

    posted by ChrisGray on 05/31/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A good surprise; it's a smart cover. There's what looks like a magnet under the top right corner that automatically locks the iPad 2. The cover feels like real leather, doesn't smell too bad, and is very thin. It probably makes the iPad 2 about 1.5x as thic...
    Cons:
    Only a niggling issue; because of the fabric "hinge", it tends not to line up when closed, so you have to push it aro...

    In a word? Shiny.

    posted by ChrisGray on 04/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It clicks together nicely, and will wear better than the front/back click-together type cases. The back cover only covers on DX here wear down on the front edges and leave the face of the iPhone 4 unprotected. This style of cover won't wear down. It's insa...
    Cons:
    Because it's so shiny, every fingerprint is forensically visible. Whomever packed mine for shipping left three full and a few m...

    Tiny sized yet full featured

    posted by ChrisGray on 04/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's tiny, and clicks into your iPhone tightly and without much wiggle, so it won't fall out. The frequency range is more than enough to find an empty spot, and it's easy to shuffle around if you hit a channel. Also the remote control is handy, but only w...
    Cons:
    The same problem with every other FM transmitter; background hiss. It's not so bad with this one, but if you listen to classica...

    Perfect for prison wardens...

    posted by ChrisGray on 03/15/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Seriously though, I have a lot of keys, and two cars. I don't want to carry every damned key I own around at all times, so using this keyring (and multiple key loops) I can modularise my keys. I have the two cars split, a home set, and other sets on separat...
    Cons:
    The leather isn't real, but for the price it doesn't matter at all. It actually comes with the weird metal tag pictured. I bou...

    Sharp, but not that sharp.

    posted by ChrisGray on 03/15/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The box is very presentable as a gift, and I bought four of them, three arriving intact and one completely smashed apart - which was instantly my set. The knives look great, and where they join into the hilts isn't dodgy or rough at all, they look great. T...
    Cons:
    Nowhere near as sharp as expensive "proper" ceramic knives. I'd say these are about 25% sharper than brand new, kitchen quality...

    Neat charger

    posted by ChrisGray on 03/07/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this to use as a wall charger for the Kindle. As it's white it goes nicely with the white Kindle USB cable. It'll charge anything USB powered though, and not just the advertised HTC phones. Sits neatly on the wall with it's low profile, and the glo...
    Cons:
    None at all.

    A decent lightweight case

    posted by ChrisGray on 03/07/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Securely clips in and holds your iPhone 4 snugly. Nice and light, low-key and the two anti-dust kits (sold seperately here on DX for roughly the same price as this case) fit properly and won't fall out on their own. You won't get your iPhone 4 falling out o...
    Cons:
    The fit is very, very tight. So tight it puts enough pressure on my screen protector to shift the corners and let air in. Not a...
