    A must have if you work with SMT electronics

    posted by Gekkie on 05/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Three different types of magnification, two of them are for both eyes (stereo). The stereo magnification allows you to use this on your head with both your eyes having the same focal point. This is a great advantage over microscopes or mag glasses. The last...
    Cons:
    The headband could be slightly more accurate. My head is now stuck in between two widths.

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

    Pros:
    Great set for beginners that are tinkering with electronics. Has most Zeners you would need when playing around

    Would have been nice if the strips where labeled. Now have to spend an hour with a Magnifying glas to figure out what what is.

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

    Pros:
    The NIC is wel built and works in windows 7 Without any problems what so ever. Thruput tests are accurate as to what expect from a 1Gb cards. Realtek chipset.

    The card is about 2 mm shot of what it should be, so you have to push it in pretty hard into the slot or else it will jump back...

    Good product for a Good Price

    posted by Gekkie on 07/22/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Normally you would use a MAX232 chip to convert RS232 to TTL. With the coming of low power chips (3.3V) This became a problem and you either had to involve a 5 volt power supply or use a buck booster. The MAX 3232 chip is the same as the MAX232 but now in ...
    Cons:
    Pin out are not described so you need to figure out using the datasheet. See posted picture for TTL and RS232 Side. the TX and...

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

    Pros:
    The BT module is small and compact and has a minimum current draw, 45 mAh when running at 112k. The module is well built and start's up really fast 1.2 seconds after power is applied
    Cons:
    It has some down sides. One is the software. It comes win linvor which is a very very basic firmware for the HC06 chip on it. T...

    Great Li-ION pack

    posted by Gekkie on 07/10/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a great Li-ION pack. I am using this in a homemade circuit and only have to recharge it after 1 week of running. The battery is a little big due to the proctection circuit. I was suprised that it came in a little box which I then used to house my c...
    Cons:
    aside from the markings, that everyone is complaining about, no cons what so ever.

    Has some nice parts

    posted by Gekkie on 03/30/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice and diverse little package that has letter you can use on fondant and icing. The other tools are fun to use and the letter C that comes in the box is nice if you need to create a word that starts with C. The icing bag is a really big plus. Not the bas...
    Cons:
    The box is flimsy and the profile knife was bent out of shape (still usable). The letters are stamps which means that you stamp...

    Cheap but worthwhile

    posted by Gekkie on 03/30/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap and handy for the really quick and dirty jobs. Nice patterns and quick to assemble and clean. The good thing is that no springs are used so you get to decide the speed of piping yourself.
    Cons:
    Cheap build quality and I have serious doubts if the materials used are food safe. The locks on the top is hard to get on and o...

    Nice Nozzle set

    posted by Gekkie on 03/30/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Really nice Nozzel set that would set you back around 50 euro's in europe. Comes in a plastic box which like most Dealextreme material is very basic. Nozzels have 3 differerent base sizes and the shapes they produce range from small to very very large
    Cons:
    No couplers in the box which means that you either have to find a coupler that fits or use parchement bags which can be a bit b...

    Not bad at all

    posted by Gekkie on 01/07/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This iPhone doc station works on my iPhone 3GS firmware 3.1.2 with no warnings (not jailbroken). It charges the iPhone and outputs audio to the line out connection at the back. The bottom of the unit is made of rubber so it stays in place when you plug the ...
    Cons:
    The USB to Data connector the back is the wrong way out so you need to flip it. I think they printed the connector wrong. You a...
