    Works well

    posted by RetroHetro on 11/19/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works well from both my Samsung Galaxy Sii4G, and from my Sony Xperia Z. The USB connector means the phone is charged at the same time, so the battery won't drain in the middle of a movie. Can't see why this wouldn't work from any phone with HDMI out.
    Cons:
    If you have a lower-res phone (like the Galaxy Sii) it will look a bit ugly on a full-HD large screen TV, as it will be pixelat...

    Good mudgerds for mountain bike

    posted by RetroHetro on 05/01/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Seat stem mounted rear and bolt mounted front guard are ideal for mountain bikes and other such bikes that don't have a bike carrier. The size of the rear guard seems big enough to protect you from the water stripe you would otherwise get. Very easy to inst...
    Cons:
    As the rear guard is seat stem mounted I'm not sure you could use it with just any luggage carrier.... Front guard size could ...

    Good screen for arduino

    posted by RetroHetro on 03/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good screen, with high resolution and vivid colours. Libraries to drive the screen are available at http://henningkarlsen.com (Look for the UTFT and Utouch libraries) You will also need a shield such as SKU: 144471 to easily connect to your arduino up.
    Cons:
    No real cons to this screen so far.

    Good stylus

    posted by RetroHetro on 03/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice neat stylus for resistive screens. Passed the 'wife test' in that the wife s happy to use it to play games on her nokia n97mini.
    Cons:
    you need a screen protector for any stylus, as it will scratch the screen with repeated use. It's amazing how the use builds up...

    Good value for money hood

    posted by RetroHetro on 01/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Shape is what you want, and hood is reversible. Still able to remove lens cap with hood in place (and I have fairly large fingers.) Even has removable hatch for adjusting polarising filters.
    Cons:
    Was not immediately compatible with my 18-55mm lens of my Pentax KX, but with less than half an hour's effort using an engraver...

    Good stuff!

    posted by RetroHetro on 06/15/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great unit that does as it says it does. Providing the car adaptor and extension cable is good also. Software was easy to set up in windows, and configuring the sampling time of the unit was easy. I did not have to read the manual for any of that.
    Cons:
    Struggling a bit with the mapping part of software, but that could just be me. The dongle is fairly small, so take care not to...
