    Way too useful for its own good

    posted by Cythrelo on 01/14/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It sticks VERY strongly in a wide range of temperatures. I could get it to stick as low as 0C/32F, and it comes off without any residue left behind on the surface you stuck it to.
    Cons:
    The red backing is extremely difficult to remove cleanly. I messed up the corner of the tape a few times when I tried to peel i...

    Very bright, universal dome light

    posted by Cythrelo on 01/14/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    VERY bright light, at least two to three times as bright as my old dome light. Fades out properly when the doors are closed.
    Cons:
    Low quality light. It has a strong yellow cast instead of just being warm white. But you're not looking at paintings under this...

    Great DVR, but could be better

    posted by Cythrelo on 01/13/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent quality wide-angle video (front and back) and audio. You can set the DVR to record the front camera, the back camera, or both simultaneously. Videos are perfectly gapless, so you won't be missing one or two seconds every time the video splits. Hig...
    Cons:
    Poorly translated software is functional, but doesn't look professional. Rear camera doesn't have much gain, so you won't see a...

    Compact, high quality, works perfectly

    posted by Cythrelo on 01/13/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Plastic seems to be very high quality, no creaks or gaps. Cable is thick enough to handle the current but could be a little longer. Metal switches will probably outlast the rest of the unit. USB port delivers the expected 1A.
    Cons:
    Blue LEDs in the rings around the switches are irritating. Adhesive pad on mine didn't stick properly, but I had some foam rubb...

    Fantastic compared to regular desk mics

    posted by Cythrelo on 11/21/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    For the price, this is simply a fnatastic microphone. Similarly-priced offerings from electronics stores and Wal-Mart just can't compare. Sound quality is great. There is very little noise, voices are crisp and clear. It's very sensitive and can pick up sou...
    Cons:
    The microphone very easily picks up the sound from your fingers rubbing on the cable or on the body of the microphone. This is ...

    Excellent, high-quality USB dance pad

    posted by Cythrelo on 08/10/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I've been using this pad for the past three days now. The plastic didn't stink like everyone else's. It's durable and doesn't stain easily. It works perfectly on Windows Vista and it works perfectly with StepMania. Just plug it in and it's recognized as a g...
    Cons:
    The box got a little smashed up during shipping, but it doesn't matter, because it's just a plastic thing. It slips fairly easi...

    EXCELLENT card, terrible card reader

    posted by Cythrelo on 06/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this for my mom's DS. She already carries a lot, so I thought it would be nice if she could minimize the number of cartridges she's carrying with her. It works GREAT. The software was easy to load onto the card. Simply download from the website, un...
    Cons:
    The card doesn't fit exactly right. In our case, this was an advantage because the cartridges were constantly being pushed out ...

    Very simple way to diffuse built-in flashes

    posted by Cythrelo on 06/26/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Although it looks confusing in the pictures, it's very simple to use. The black piece slides right into the hotshoe (you could probably secure it with double-sided foam tape if your camera lacks a hotshoe) and the white plastic piece slides onto the arms. I...
    Cons:
    None that I can think of. I rated the usefulness a 4 because built-in flashes are severely underpowered and have very limited u...

    Very nice scale, decent price

    posted by Cythrelo on 06/26/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Scales are awesome to have. Now I'm going to be weighing everything in sight. The platform really is tempered glass, so it can handle the weight and it's pretty stylish at the same time. The scale is accurate too, I tested it with a few things that I knew t...
    Cons:
    It creeps a little below 5 grams. The base isn't weighted very well, so the back in kind of rises a little when you press hard ...

    Great value for CR2032 batteries.

    posted by Cythrelo on 06/26/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    There's not much to say here. I pay 33 cents per battery locally, and I just paid 18 cents per battery from DX. That doesn't sound like much, but it adds up! Locally, this many cells would cost $6.60, but I paid just $3.67 from DX. Unlike previous reviews, ...
    Cons:
    None that I can think of.
