    Excellent deal

    posted by PGT96 on 08/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is an excellent addition to every vehicle you ever want to use a USB-powered device in. The bonus iPod/iPhone cable makes it that much better of a deal, but the star of this bundle is the USB charger adapter itself. It installs flush, gives a good stea...
    Cons:
    Unlike most devices that use a cigarette lighter socket, this one doesn't have an easy-to-replace fuse. That's part of what all...

    Still working well

    posted by PGT96 on 04/23/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Been using this on my kid's bike since last year. We don't have it exposed to the elements (bike is kept outside, but under a bike cover), but so far it's really none the worse for wear. Definitely loud enough to notice, but with the sensitivity set properl...
    Cons:
    Be careful in entering the disarm code. After a few attempts, it locks out the keypad for three minutes, during which the alarm...

    Good value-priced charger base

    posted by PGT96 on 04/13/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Free your controllers from your PS3. Using this charger base plus any USB wall charger rated for 300 mA or higher, you can now charge your wireless DualShock3 controllers anywhere you like, no need to tie up a USB port on your PS3.
    Cons:
    It takes a bit of practice to learn how to insert two controllers into the charger base at the same time such that both actuall...

    SD (non-SDHC) Class 2 - works great for the price

    posted by PGT96 on 11/28/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I took a chance on this, hoping that it was a SD card and not a SDHC... and lucked out, it's an SD card. My GPS will now be happy.
    Cons:
    This is a Class 2 SD card, about as basic as they come. My benchmark tests come back as 4MB read / 2MB write. If you're looking...

    Excellent Deal!

    posted by PGT96 on 05/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The plastic slip cover is the number one reason why I bought this, and I don't regret it. I used to have a much larger microSD card reader that I carried around in my pocket with a microSD card permanently installed as a flash drive. This one is less than h...
    Cons:
    No actual cover for the open part of the USB connector, meaning that it can collect pocket lint if you're not careful.

    Worth the Price, But Remember It's Cheap

    posted by PGT96 on 05/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great value for the money, if you're simply looking for a lightweight, low-restriction cover to keep from spraying out germs when you're sick.
    Cons:
    Don't expect these to protect you against any serious airborne pathogen, the cotton is extremely thin; basically, it's thinner ...

    Quality is good for this price

    posted by PGT96 on 04/16/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The rubber-damped mounting means that my already-quiet HD (previously installed directly inside my PC) is even quieter now in this hot-swap tray. Quality of the eject mechanism is surprisingly good (for this price), and the lockable door helps to prevent ac...
    Cons:
    Even when locked, the latch on the door can still be operated, allowing the door to pop out a little... the lock prevents the d...

    They work, but look out for the quality

    posted by PGT96 on 01/17/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I took a bit of a risk in buying these for an external hard drive, but the risk paid off... they work. What else can you ask for from a cable? Well...
    Cons:
    ...since these are retractable cables, you can ask for them to retract. The first one I tried, I slowly pulled out the cable (f...

    So tiny I'm afraid I'll lose it. :)

    posted by PGT96 on 01/17/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thing is tiny. It will be nearly impossible to make a microSD reader smaller than this. It's also very cheap, letting me get more use out of the microSD cards I've accumulated over the years as I upgrade to larger and larger capacities.
    Cons:
    The strap that came with it (to allow it to be attached to something else, such as a keychain) is bright silver, a sharp constr...

    Not exactly as pictured

    posted by PGT96 on 01/17/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Definitely a 5 on the cuteness factor, making these great for giving to kids (and kids-at-heart). Standard size means it's easy to insert folded Cdn or US bills.
    Cons:
    "Not exactly as pictured" should be mentioned in the description. The assortment I received had five different design...
