    A nice, simple and cheap case

    posted by Hagenaars on 01/21/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The case is simple to click together, it takes about 15 minutes for the first try. The panels are protected with a plastic film, so you won't have any scratches from transport. The lid lifts up, so if you want to use the GPIO or other add-on ports, you can ...
    Cons:
    When I took my RaspberryPi in this case in my laptop bag to work, it disassembled, so if you plan to take your RaspberryPi on t...

    Fine method of connecting an optical drive to a USB port

    posted by Hagenaars on 04/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The sata controller works fine, getting reasonable speeds through USB 2.0 The housing is sturdy, compact and the pads included in the package reduce vibration to a very acceptable level.
    Cons:
    The installation requires one major step (sliding apart the upper and lower half of the housing), which is not documented. You...

    Works like a charm

    posted by Hagenaars on 04/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The pen just works. Better then my fingers when I've got cold hands. Fairly simple which is fine, as it's function is fairly simple. Tested on Nexus 7, HTC Desire Z, iPad and HTC Desire HD.
    Cons:
    Possibly hard to aim, as the tip is a bit wide, but my fingers are wider, so the pen is no worse. As the pen can not be attache...

    Works great, blue led is a bit bright

    posted by Hagenaars on 03/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Charges two usb devices simultaniously, with enough power for both devices. Charges like as fast as the normal wall-socket charger.
    Cons:
    The blue led is rather bright, so when driving at night you'll have the roof of your car bathing in a blue glow and the timy bl...

    Easy to install, easy to use

    posted by Hagenaars on 01/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easy to install, two screws to open the housing, slot in the drive, close the housing and you're done. It is an actual USB 3.0 device, which means a big improvement in speed for the hdd I've used with it
    Cons:
    It's a slightly loose fit, so things might rattle during transport, no major issue though. The pouch might reduce the noise, bu...

    Must have when switching to ssd

    posted by Hagenaars on 01/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Just a connector with a housing, no electronics in the device, so this device does not reduce the speed of the drive in the cradle. This also means that the device 'just works'. It slots nicely into my asus laptop, but should fit into any other laptop with ...
    Cons:
    Does not have a 'front' which means you have to remove the front of your own optical drive, which might be a bit fiddly.

    A lot of warm white light

    posted by Hagenaars on 11/14/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These led lamps give a nice warm white light. Five of them in the lamp I have are more then enough to brighten the entire bedroom (20+ square meter), without feeling too cold or too bright. The fitting is good and they all work (and have been working for so...
    Cons:
    The lamps are longer then the halogen version of GU10 lights, which micht be a problem in some fixtures. It shows that the casi...

    Handy little gadget

    posted by Hagenaars on 11/14/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small and easy to use, especially after installing the newer open source firmware. Nice reference signal (by attaching the probe to the metal bit on the right-top corner).
    Cons:
    Link to firmware supplier could have been more clear. Without firmware update, the reference signal and usability is somewhat l...
