    Great for OpenWRT

    posted by JVisc on 03/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Can run OpenWRT (embedded linux), instructions are available on google. For the price, you get an embedded linux box that can connect to webcams, flashdrives, arduinos, etc. There's also an internal serial port available if you're handy with a soldering i...
    Cons:
    The available flash is pretty small (4MB), there's not much you can do without using an external flash drive. Python is too big...

    Good LED strip

    posted by JVisc on 09/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - You're not paying for a controller with this, perfect if you want to drive these yourself. - Waterpoof - Separate Red/Green/Blue wires so you can make any colour
    Cons:
    - Wire colours don't match LED colours - Package said 14W, though I think that must be per meter, which would make 70W for the...

    Very very cheap

    posted by JVisc on 08/18/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These LCDs go for between $20-$30 where I live, and I can get this for about $5 on deal extreme! It works just as well, and even has a backlight. Got it working with an Arduino in under 30 minutes, has the same protocol all of these type of LCDs have
    Cons:
    When outside, white/blue doesn't have quite as good contrast as black/yellow.

    Great device

    posted by JVisc on 10/16/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It runs linux, so it can do a lot (you can install any application as long as it's compiled for ARM and isn't too slow) It is a lot lighter than I expected.
    Cons:
    Took a long time to get it shipped. It occasionally locks up (or at least the input does) luckily it has a reset button. (I ha...
