    Good build, low price

    posted by HiVoltage on 07/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - very cheap - convenient to use - made of good quality plastic I'm not going to write an essay on why you would want to use these things - if you're here, you probably know that already. What is worth mentioning, however is that they are made of good ...
    Cons:
    nothing to mention

    Revives your old telly

    posted by HiVoltage on 07/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Sensitive tuner - Small (practically invisible as it hides behind the TV) - Easy to use remote control with sensitive tuner
    Cons:
    Unlike some other models, this receiver does not "bend", so you need to make sure that there is enough space behind the TV for ...

    Very sticky, but can't handle heat!

    posted by HiVoltage on 07/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    VERY sticky! This mat is so sticky you can use it to hold stuff vertically in your car! When I bought it, I thought it simply "grips" the stuff on it via friction, but I was wrong - it feels is if the stuff is glued to mat. You can also wash this thing when...
    Cons:
    The fact that this thing is so sticky means that it gets dirty very quickly. You will need to wash it very regularly as it coll...

    Brighter than expected!

    posted by HiVoltage on 03/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this to replace a 60W incandescent, and was a bit reluctant because I was afraid that it would not create enough light as needed. I was very wrong, as the light output that I got was more comparable to a 100W bulb! To avoid mistakes, however, in re...
    Cons:
    As others have mentioned, the screw mounting can turn freely (it's not glued to the lamp). While this can be convenient as it a...

    Good value

    posted by HiVoltage on 03/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Low cost - Good quality (same stuff you would buy at your local electronics store) - Various thick sizes - you will always have the size you need!
    Cons:
    - They come wrapped in adhesive tape, which leaves a sticky residue when you remove it. Not that bad, but not ideal either.

    Great value

    posted by HiVoltage on 03/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These tubes are exactly like the ones you buy at the electronics store, with the difference that you get 5 for less than the price of 2! Since they come as a set with different sizes, this is a very good starting point if you're stocking up.
    Cons:
    - The thinnest sleeve is extremely thin. I don't think I'd ever come to need it. - They come wrapped in adhesive tape along wi...

    Makes life a bit easier

    posted by HiVoltage on 03/01/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thing can really help you out in lifting heavy plastic bags. While the handles in plastic bags can get thin and painful to lift, this offers a comfortable rubberized grip for multiple bags. As long as you use this properly, it can support very heavy lo...
    Cons:
    The stability of this device depends on the fact that the spring-loaded opening goes back in place fully. You need to be carefu...

    Very good mic

    posted by HiVoltage on 01/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very well built - Very good quality (as long as your sound card is good enough) I have been using this for Skype calls for months now, and I still can remember some people commenting about the upgrade in the sound quality. Some even thought I bought a h...
    Cons:
    The on-off switch (mute/unmute) is a slider switch at the back. It would have been much better off if it was a button on the fr...

    Best cheap flashlight I bought to date

    posted by HiVoltage on 01/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Compact build - Uses a ubiquitous AA cell - VERY solidly built - Good heat sinking - Convenient zooming
    Cons:
    - There is no thermal paste between the LED MCPCB and the metal heat sink. I ended up adding thermal paste myself as I really d...

    Buy it!

    posted by HiVoltage on 01/17/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have always wanted a soldering iron with a thermostat but they're too expensive to justify the cost. Not this one, however. It heats up really fast in less than 1 minute (mine measured 68W), and then maintains the temperature. The Medium temperature setti...
    Cons:
    The "earth" wire would have been better off if it was part of the power cable and then connected to the plug rather t...
