    Cant stop watching it

    posted by Purpletiger on 02/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    works well, has not stopped one since I have received it! Great value for money. Everyone love it, even the cat. Awesome educational toy. Easy to set up and get working. Perfect for controlling a nuclear power plant.
    Cons:
    Box came squashed but the bird was unbroken. The plastic legs were bent inwards which stopped it from moving, fix it by holding...

    Good bulbs for the price

    posted by Purpletiger on 02/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice white light. They are about the same size as a normal BA9S bulb so will fit fine. Light is spread quite evenly. Quite easy to disassemble if you need to reverse polarity. Build quality seems good but do not know how long they will last.
    Cons:
    Outer casing is negative and center and bottom contact is positive, this was a negative for me as it is the other way around on...

    Good quality and excellent price.

    posted by Purpletiger on 01/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good quality. Fits a MacBook 13 inch quite well. Two different colours – Black or red, can be reversed and be either colour. Stitching and material feels good quality and won't just fall apart. Will stretch to most if not all 13 inch laptops
    Cons:
    The flap sticks out when I put my MacBook into it and looks quite stupid, it needs to be shorter so it will pull tight on the c...

    Great bright laser

    posted by Purpletiger on 01/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great bright green laser. Can easily see the beam in the dark or even dim lighting. Build quality is quite good. Button has a nice firm click to it. Nice focused dot. Batteries last quite a long time. Comes with a nice gift box which is good it it's...
    Cons:
    Included batteries a crap, replace them with alkalines as soon as you get the laser, it's much brighter with them and they last...

    Excellent protector, even covers up some scratche

    posted by Purpletiger on 01/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent screen protector. Went on very easy, no bubbles at all. Covered up some scratches on the display and protected from getting more. Didn't get all scratches up like some protectors do. Came with two sets of protectors and cleaning cloths, nice if y...
    Cons:
    Only covers the main screen, does not cover the surrounding plastic but does not matter as much as the screen does.

    Good for the price

    posted by Purpletiger on 01/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent price, you would pay 20 times as much as a genuine one from Apple. Good to keep as a spare or a replacement. Cable is a good length. Works well with my iPhone and iPod touch. Where the cable enters the connector is plastic which is better then the...
    Cons:
    The iPhone end of the cable is looser than the original iPhone cable although could be a good thing if as it wont strain the co...

    Amazingly bright, and usefull

    posted by Purpletiger on 01/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Amazingly bright, blinds people if you shine it in their eyes. Batteries have lasted so far (1+ years). Excellent to keep in the glovebox as emergency torch. Great low price, get one even if you don't need it!
    Cons:
    Button is quite hard to press. The build quality could be better, it have broken in half a few times but just pops back togeth...

    Excellent to convert MiniUSB charger to USB

    posted by Purpletiger on 01/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent to convert MiniUSB charger to USB. Used it to charge a iPod with a old Motorola cell phone charger which was MiniUSB. Holds the cable well, doesn't fall out easily. I also use it to turn a MiniUSB cable into a usb extension.
    Cons:
    Top part could be covered as well, doesn't look too good exposed. The USB cable sticks out quite far.

    Good receiver, even worked with included antenna

    posted by Purpletiger on 01/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Didn't even need to install CD for Windows 7, worked straight out of the box in Windows Media Centre. Works well with the included antenna although does lose signal at times. The remote only works with the included software
    Cons:
    Gets incredibly hot and won't tune to any stations if it gets too hot. The remote didn't work well, could just be low battery t...
