    Great for Canon Ixus 80 IS

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fitted the screen of my Canon Ixus 80 IS (aka Powershot 1100 IS) quite well. Perhaps half a millimeter bigger than the screen. Easy to put on. You can't see it's there, doesn't compromise vision. Protects the screen well. Good manual on how to put it on. Ch...
    Cons:
    None that I can think of.

    Fun keychain

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cute design, useful keychain. Gave this to a friend of mine who owns a two-person bicycle with her boyfriend. She was thrilled about it, and had never seen such a keychain before. She uses it for the bicycle's keys now
    Cons:
    Little pins used to connect the two keychains don't look sturdy. I wonder how long it will take to break off. Friend had troubl...

    Useful

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Quite cheap and very easy to use. Just plug it in and stick the card in basically. Fast enough. Contains led.
    Cons:
    Outer casing could've been better. It showed a few cracks through which dust could get in. Jammed it together a little, much be...

    Got a black one. Doesn't work.

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Could be a fun gadget. If it works. Now it's just a funny looking keychain.
    Cons:
    Got a black one instead of a white one. It doesn't actually work. Sometimes it does something if you press a few buttons, but n...

    Does what it's supposed to do

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Extremely cheap. Does exactly what it should do. Very useful for me (European) to be able to use the equipment I have which uses flat plugs (such as my camera battery charger).
    Cons:
    None really. As long as you use it properly.

    Handy thing

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's very cheap. I have nothing to compare the readings with, but I think the temperature is quite right. Has self-adhesive tape on the back should you want to mount it on the wall.
    Cons:
    Hygrometer might be a tad off, but not sure.

    works well

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Strong light. Easy to put on and take off your crossbar or handlebar so it doesn't get stolen. Possible to turn it at an angle left or right. Don't have to use my dynamo for my light, making cycling lighter and easier.
    Cons:
    Not too strong. Dropped it once, the casing came of and the wiring broke. Fairly heavy for a lamp. Fairly big, I like to take i...

    They all died

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very cheap compared to the 'real thing'. Food and crystals included, which is very handy. Nice to try out. Fun to see all the little critters emerge seemingly out of nowhere.
    Cons:
    There is no manual, so I looked some stuff up online, but I didn't do it right. They hatched for sure, they all died 4 days aft...

    Fairly proper tool

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    There are many different sizes in this set, so it will almost always contain the one you need for simple jobs. Handy keyring so they don't get lost.
    Cons:
    Not too strong when lots of force is used. The keyring they came on is a bit flimsy.

    Not so handy

    posted by Phoenixfire on 11/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a fun gimmick. Different from other mouses. Nice to try out.
    Cons:
    Not all that easy to handle really. Buttons hard to reach on smaller hands. Isn't comfortable when wearing. Don't get used to i...
