    Pros:
    Great build quality with a removable antenna so another with higher gain could be used if desired. Instant plug and play on Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows 8. What more do you need? An ideal add USB WiFi adapter on for desktops and laptops with weak on ...

    Nice diagnostic tool

    posted by Jakester519 on 09/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good tool for the PC engineer. Nice that it has 3 separate interfaces for use on laptops and other small form factor PC's. Haven't tried the LPC connector yet but it is definitely a bonus to have for those odd occasions when you may come across a use for it.
    Cons:
    Mine did not ship with a user manual from DX. Not too much of a problem as a quick Google search sorts out that problem. But ...

    Excellent replacement battery

    posted by Jakester519 on 09/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great replacement battery with a good capacity. In my opinion better than the original as on this one the battery capacity LEDs work which never did on the battery that came with the Samsung laptop.
    Cons:
    A little bit more expensive than some at first appearance but the quality is superb, so not really a con. More of an observation.

    Do not leave plugged in 24/7

    posted by Jakester519 on 01/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, cheap and looks good. External build quality is very good, the plug is sturdy and cannot be opened by prying fingers. Works best when used to charge devices for short periods.
    Cons:
    Left one of these plugged in to supply constant power to a Mi-Fi router. After 2 days there was a loud bang, a flash of light ...

    Does not come with Google Play Store installed and in fact it does not work with Play Store when you do download and install it...

    Good cheap inverter

    posted by Jakester519 on 01/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Unbelievably low price. Works great straight from the box. USB port included. Multi output for UK/US/EU plugs. Charges laptops, tablets at the same time as running GPS or charging phone on the move. Nice LED not too bright, it is not distracting whilst driv...
    Cons:
    None really, it is a bit plasticky, but that is exactly what it says it is anyway so no real issue!

    Excellent Wi-Fi Repeater

    posted by Jakester519 on 01/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easy to set up, not quite plug n play but very close. Good signal strength throughout house and even outside using this device. Nice price compared to other, locally available repeaters. Build quality very good, feels like it should stand the test of time.
    Cons:
    No cons so far.

    One of the most useful items on DX

    posted by Jakester519 on 01/05/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This little US plug converter/adaptor must be one of the most sold items by DX. Used for all their devices that come with a US plug it is invaluable to allow their use in your own country. Quite sturdy, the US plug fits in snugly and does not feel as if ...
    Cons:
    No cons at all with this adaptor.

    Nice looking watch

    posted by Jakester519 on 01/05/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice clear watch that looks more expensive than it is. Bought this for my wife as she hates watches that have no numbers on them and doesn't like digital watches either, she loves this. The strap is not too wide and very comfortable and after almost 12 mo...
    Cons:
    The 'jewels' aroundthe watch face have started to loosen and fall out. Luckily a few drops of super glue and its sorted but th...

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

    Pros:
    I have had this tablet for nearly a year now and it is still going strong. The touch screen is very responsive and bright. The USB adaptor is good quality and sturdy. Power on battery still lasting a good 4-5 hours with wi-fi on, even after heavy use ov...
    Cons:
    The only con I have found is not being able to output continuosly through HDMI to a large screen TV. Works fine on movies and ...
