    Looks good, runs fast and works well.

    posted by Festus on 11/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fast turning motor and trimmer works well without pulling hairs or causing any nicks to the skin. After several uses, still running fast on the same AA battery. Quality appearance and appears well made. Fits nicely in the hand. Positive click to switch on/...
    Cons:
    Fairly large compared to most other similar trimmers, yet only uses a single AA battery.

    A handy addition to the household toolbox

    posted by Festus on 09/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Can be very handy when changing to a new phone or when your current phone is sent away for repair and your SIM card has to be swapped to another phone with an different sized SIM socket
    Cons:
    So small, it could easily be lost between infrequent uses. Fiddly to use, but unavoidable when SIM cards are now so small anyway.

    Inexpensive, easy to fit and 'sticky'

    posted by Festus on 09/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Inexpensive. Simple and easy to fit. Holes line up with all the appropriate parts of a Note 2. Relatively thin, yet still offers some short drop protection for the back cover and corners. Cover wraps around at the edges, so the front display also gets some ...
    Cons:
    No real screen coverage apart from slight wrap around, so a screen protector might be required if rough use is likely. Silicon ...

    Small, versatile and handy

    posted by Festus on 09/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Four outlets means this adapter fits most common USB devices. Compact - easily carried when travelling. Rugged construction with the metal plugs embedded in plastic outer casings. This is much much better than some similar adapter plugs that have two part p...
    Cons:
    Blinking red/blue LED light is bright and distracting even on a desk in daylight. It's even worse at night when charging a phon...

    A necessary part for any Android phone

    posted by Festus on 09/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, inexpensive and very handy when transferring files on and off an Android phone onto a USB thumbdrive. No need to fiddle with Bluetooth, wifi or cables to a PC. Just fast, simple file transfer using on-board Android apps.
    Cons:
    Could be confused with other similar short USB cables. Doesn't accept some USB memory devices although it may depend on the for...

    Compact, accepts large capacity cards

    posted by Festus on 09/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, inexpensive, handles high capacity cards and uncomplicated by numerous card slots.
    Cons:
    Only has slots for SD and MicroSD cards. Does not accept CF or other less common cards. Plastic casing is hard and possibly br...

    OK for the price, but power adapters fail.

    posted by Festus on 08/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fairly inexpensive for multimedia capable display although I can only get JPGs to display successfully. Includes remote control. Would be a worthwhile gift if it wasn't prone to early power adapter failure.
    Cons:
    Fairly low resolution (cheap), and I've yet to find a music or video file format/codec that it will play. Power adapter slowly ...

    Excellent inexpensive replacement

    posted by Festus on 05/31/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Inexpensive, high capacity and simple installation. A similar previous replacement battery lasted nearly 3 years.
    Cons:
    None, except installing this battery means you haven't got a really good excuse any more to buy a new smartphone - you're stuck...

    Good idea, but still not quite long enough.

    posted by Festus on 05/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very useful as an iPhone stylus that's always available. When extended it's more like using a pen compared to a non-extending stub stylus. Works as expected giving better accuracy, especially when wearing gloves or with wet hands.
    Cons:
    Not quite long enough when extended to sit like a pen in an adult hand. Also the inner and outer barrels do slide in and out a ...
