    Wish I'd gone for the 100 pack :-(

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

    Pros:
    I bought the 20 pack of these to try them out. People had talked about how they weren't as strong as the flat magnets which I've gotten a bunch of in the past for various practical purposes so I didn't want to get too many of these because if they were kind...
    Cons:
    None for me!

    Set expectations, accordingly!

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

    Pros:
    Works great with the Seagull remote Slave Trigger (SKU 02321) and any of the cheap little tripods offered on here for a little improv, off camera fill flash. It's small and light weight so it doesn't take up much extra space in the camera bag. I actually bo...
    Cons:
    Make no bones about it - this is a cheap flash. It feels cheap, looks sort of cheap, doesn't come with any swivel and the only ...

    Glad I bought it!

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

    Pros:
    Got this to go with my 40D and 580ex flash to use with a bracket that is now out of stock (and likely gone forever) at Deal Extreme so that I could take event photos with portrait cropping and keep the flash where it should be to avoid the nasty horizontal ...
    Cons:
    None. It works great

    Great little product

    posted by MrPromee on 11/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Got this to hold reflectors/diffusers in my shoestring studio for product photography and it's worked great. Was worried that the grip wouldn't be strong enough to hold a 36" panel which can put a lot of pressure on clips such as this with small grip a...
    Cons:
    None, really. It does what it's supposed to.

    It does what I need it to!

    posted by MrPromee on 11/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Does what it's supposed to. This is a straight forward product so it's hard to say much about it except that it's cheap and it works.
    Cons:
    Build quality doesn't feel the greatest, the female end is a tight fit with plugs which makes me worry a little about damaging ...

    Love it!

    posted by MrPromee on 11/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits both the iPod touch 2nd generation (has holes for volume control) and the 1st generation (little more snug but still does just fine). As someone who never uses the belt clip on anything, I have to say that it comes with the nicest, most unobtrusive att...
    Cons:
    Because of the style of the case, it leaves the top edge & bottom corners of the touch exposed. A quick run of electrical t...

    It's a perfect replacement

    posted by MrPromee on 11/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Actually, it's a perfect knockoff. Comes packaged just like an Apple product. Looks more like a gray market product than a knockoff but since they say it's an after market product, I'll take their word for it not being the real deal.
    Cons:
    All of these plugs seem a little expensive to me considering what they actually do. That said, this is still a great price comp...

    cute product, didn't ship well

    posted by MrPromee on 10/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought this as a joke gift last year (and am getting ready to order more this time around). Person whom I gave it to LOVED it. In normal office lighting, the head will nod gently, moved more towards direct sunlight, the pace will pick up significantly.
    Cons:
    Although the plastic bubble did a good job protecting the little guy on his trip half way around the world, the bubble packagin...

    Adds a little something extra

    posted by MrPromee on 10/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are really pretty when added to a soiless plant or even for fresh cut flowers (what I did with them)
    Cons:
    The colors are sort of random. If you could get them all red to go with roses or all blue or some other color for a consistent ...

    Nice sleve with cord wrap

    posted by MrPromee on 10/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    having the cord wrap in the back is a really nice addition. It holds the iPod headphones nicely and works out as a good, compact way to carry your nano and headphones in your pocket!
    Cons:
    None really.
