    Perfect

    posted by Plexx on 10/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Neoprene material is of a consistent thickness over the entire surface of the bag. Material is elastic enough to accommodate a number of 13" laptops.
    Cons:
    I would have preferred a velcro closure instead of the fold-over, tuck-under type.

    Gets the job done

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

    Pros:
    These batteries work in many of the devices (mostly flashlights, but also a calculator, etc) I have at home. These individually-packaged batteries seem to have a longer life and better quality than the bulk batteries sold here and elsewhere.
    Cons:
    No expiration date printed on package, occasionally I run across a battery that is weak or dies quickly. For the price, can't ...

    Better than the Apple original product

    posted by Plexx on 10/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This item is more compact, easier to use, and just overall better than the unnecessary dock that is included with the iPod shuffle. Especially to take when you travel.
    Cons:
    Like most USB cables / adapters, etc, the USB male end is not as well-made as high-end cables. Perfectly useable though and pe...

    Great little item

    posted by Plexx on 10/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap, super bright LEDs (alternating red, blue, and white). Easy to clip on and off my dog's collar. O-ring allows the light to get wet without wrecking the batteries.
    Cons:
    Twist-to-enable means that when the light is off, the two halves may be separated enough to allow water inside the o-ring, or f...

    A vital part of any survival kit

    posted by Plexx on 10/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Does what it is supposed to do. Large enough so you have the leverage to produce a large enough spark. Should last a very long time with normal use.
    Cons:
    Can take a little practice to perfect a good fire-starting technique. Also, as mentioned before, the item ships with a protect...

    Good, large, strong magnets

    posted by Plexx on 10/09/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fairly strong magnets, five-pack is adequate for refrigerator use, magnets are larger than you might expect from looking at the photos. Well-made, does not feel like cheap plastic.
    Cons:
    None

    Gets the job done if slightly modified

    posted by Plexx on 10/09/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Holds eyeglasses, you can also wedge an envelope or paper note in the slot. Foam pads allow both wire frame glasses and also thicker frame sunglasses.
    Cons:
    Build quality is questionable, I've ordered two and one was perfect, the other wouldn't open/close until I filed down the plast...
