    Case for Google 7" tablet

    posted by RobbHowie on 11/21/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits perfectly, has openings for camera and ambient light sensor, mic, speaker, USB cable and pin connector for dock. Clicks closed with magnets to hold cover in place. Turns off tablet when closed. Can stand up in landscape mode.
    Cons:
    It is what it says. Minor complaints: left side folds over when cover is underneath (using tablet) and sticks out a little mak...

    Amusing Solar Turntable

    posted by RobbHowie on 11/21/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works. Even in an inner office with flourescent lighting it turns. Turn on the lights and away it goes, turning around a few times a minute. Same speed in the sun, just keeps on going and going...
    Cons:
    No cons. Nothing wrong. If you really want to find a fault then it is not gold plated :-).

    Mini Bluetooth Keyboard

    posted by RobbHowie on 11/04/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's small, works well enough. Using a keyboard is always better than a soft keyboard on a tablet. This is on a Google Nexus 7, very simple to do initial setup and to use (justt turn it on!).
    Cons:
    The keys bounce: hitting a key sometimes give 2 or 3 of thaat key. As you can see, I aam using the keyboard for this review....

    LCD talking clock

    posted by RobbHowie on 03/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The large characters are easy to read. Not surprisingly it keeps good time. It is reasonably easy to set the time, alarm or beeps. It is small and protable yet we leave it in the kitchen and it fits in quite nicely. It is "blind friendly" in t...
    Cons:
    Setting the time and alarm is a little bit convoluted and occasionally forget and have to check the cheat sheet. The voice is ...

    Laptop cable lock

    posted by RobbHowie on 03/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works, people can't walk away with the laptop, a good deterrent. The cable is a good length, not to long or short for a table in an average hotel room. Seems reasonably strong. It can be easily rolled up and carried along with the laptop.
    Cons:
    Cheap. Lock mechanism is not smooth. Probably if someone gave it a good yank either the lock or the loop end would fall apart.

    Good deterent

    posted by RobbHowie on 10/30/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap. Works as a deterant, so if the laptop is in my room, no one will casually pick it up and keep going. A determined theif will just break it but that is not common.
    Cons:
    Smells! Like the other reviews say, put it in the basement or closet or garage for the first week. What did the mfgs do, soak...

    posted by RobbHowie on 06/11/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works. Walk nearby and it blasts away with the siren.
    Cons:
    Eats batteries. Best to connect a small AC adaptor.

    Car Bluetooth handsfree kit

    posted by RobbHowie on 05/15/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, easy to use. Turns itself off after 15 minutes if you forget. Nice clip on visor with magnets to hold the unit.
    Cons:
    Annoying blue LED blinks away right in front of you. Nothing a piece of black tape couldn't fix. Might be a quirk to do with ...
