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

    Pros:

    - Doesn't read Compact Flash - Mine has a manufacturing problem with the way the SD Card slot was mounted.

    Mine was defective :(

    posted by MattInSoCal on 09/04/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is twice the price for apparently the same tool at the chain of Tool stores that import their Freight through the Harbor from China. It is 1/4 the price that would be paid if you brought it Home from the Depot where you buy do-it-yourself warehouse store
    Cons:
    Mine was defective. The press-in threaded insert that the blade depth adjustment screw sits in was not seated properly. When tr...

    It works, iPhone to iPad direction only

    posted by MattInSoCal on 09/04/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    When using this to connect my iPhone 4S to my iPad, the Photo Viewer application automatically opens and asks which photos to import. No special software required, and it's all automagic. Has the appearance of good build quality.
    Cons:
    The connectors are a little large. The cable is kind of short, maybe 30 cm / 12 in overall (i didn't measure it)

    It's really, really cheesy

    posted by MattInSoCal on 09/04/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It provides -some- protection for the phone. It made my wife happy
    Cons:
    The case covers the right (SIM-card) side of the phone, about 60% of the left side, and pretty much nothing on the bottom and t...

    Nice for the price

    posted by MattInSoCal on 09/04/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Adequate light output given that it's 12 individual low(er) power LEDs Flashlight body, lens, and switch cap have a well-polished appearance and feel quite sturdy. The body of the light is longer than the cheap LED flashlights I have all over my house an...
    Cons:
    Quality of the battery insert doesn't inspire confidence in the longevity of the assembly. Good to have a different one. -1 sta...

    It's like holding up 7 flashlights all pointing the same way

    posted by MattInSoCal on 07/08/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - The design of the light means that there is not a tremendous amount of heat generated by the driver circuit. - Dimmable, but you might need a special dimmer that is compatible. - All the LEDs work, and from what I could tell the brightness of each l...
    Cons:
    - There are 60 relatively-weak LEDs, just as is clearly seen in the picture. In operation the light emitted is a spot, and the ...

    My favorite DX watch so far!

    posted by MattInSoCal on 07/06/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - A very beautiful watch. You cannot see the texture details on the face in the DX photos. It has a machined fly-cutter like texture and a two-tone style striped finish when you have it in the right light. - The wrist band is HUGE (at least 230 mm) and is f...
    Cons:
    - Why, why, WHY does there have to be a non-functioning pointer on the face of the watch? (The one below the Sun/Moon half-dial...

    posted by MattInSoCal on 07/06/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It comes with a pretty decent quality screen protector. - The exterior finish is fairly pleasant and the construction quality appears good. - I like the pebble texture. It has a nice, professional look. I think it's pretty masculine but the ladies may l...
    Cons:
    - The magnet in the cover that activates the device lock is installed in the wrong polarity for my New iPad (I confirmed with a...

    Incredibly useful

    posted by MattInSoCal on 05/07/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Adapts any IEC-style power cord that you can find anywhere in the world to make a universal adapter that you can use in the country. I travel all over the world with these knowing I'll always be able to plug in my electronics. Construction quality is good. ...
    Cons:
    I have to buy extras because I keep giving them away as gifts to other people that travel often. The stickers attached to them ...
