    Great product for amateur electronics enthusiasts

    posted by Roland83 on 03/03/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Nice variety of tools, decent plastic quality. It does not bend or break, it feels quite sturdy.
    Cons:
    The plectrum-like tools are quite thick, they are not thin enough to peel some phone covers apart. I think a real professional ...

    Great and very cheap

    posted by Roland83 on 01/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This screen protector works very well. It fits perfectly and is scratch resistent enough for my needs. The phone is kept in my girlfriend's handbag with other stuff, there are no scratches on it due to this screen protector!
    Cons:
    The screen's colours wash away a bit, because of the material. The screen is still readable, but don't expect to see all colour...

    Works well, but not great

    posted by Roland83 on 01/01/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It works as advertised. Build quality is adequate, the plastic casing is not the best. Connectors feel sturdy enough. When a cable is tested, the LEDs on the device and on the remote end blink simultaneously when the internal connectors in the cable are con...
    Cons:
    As said, the LEDs blink simultaneously, the slow mode is necessary. You need quite a lot of force to operate the ON-OFF button....

    Adequate quality for a small price

    posted by Roland83 on 01/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    For this price, there is no alternative. In Holland, one (!) crimp plug costs 50 eurocents, in this deal one crimp plug costs 9 cents. The crimp plug is made of a decent hard plastic, with no sharp ends or other things that shouldn't be there. The 8 cables ...
    Cons:
    Three crimp plugs came with their (gold plated) contacts missing. They were in the package, obviously they have fallen out some...

    Excellent!

    posted by Roland83 on 12/14/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    The cable feels very solid, the cable is firm yet flexible and the connectors are gold plated. Build quality is one of the best you can get on DealExtreme. It is just plug and play, it works really well! I can see my phone's screen on the tv as well :)
    Cons:
    None really, except maybe the price: it is low but not a real bargain. On the other hand, the build quality is excellent.

    Awesome quality, good cable!

    posted by Roland83 on 11/26/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This cable has the same build quality as any B-grade cable in stores in The Netherlands, and costs less than half the price! Much bang for your buck, so to say. The cable feels sturdy but is still bendy, the connectors are firmly attached to the cable. I ha...
    Cons:
    No cons, or it must be the colour. Some like it black, some like it white or grey. I like it blue :)

    Very good!

    posted by Roland83 on 04/06/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    A DVI-cable costs about 25 dollar in a computer store in The Netherlands. This cable works equally well, and costs a lot less!
    Cons:
    The build quality is good enough, but not more than that. Plastic parts do not fit very well, and there are some traces of glue...

    Only for a hallway

    posted by Roland83 on 04/06/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The lamp is cheap. In the Netherlands, such a lamp costs more than 10 dollars. It comes in a sturdy box, and build quality of the lamp is adequate. You can easily open the lens assembly, but it doesn't open itself. For an advertised 3.5 watt power usage, ...
    Cons:
    The colour of this lamp should be "warm white". I don't know if there are any differences in colour perception over different r...

    Not 100% reliable

    posted by Roland83 on 06/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This cable looks genuine and seems to be built quite well. Not made of those very cheap plastics; it is just a sturdy yet flexible cable with well sealed plugs.
    Cons:
    I don't believe this is genuine AND tested. I bought two cables: one of them works, the other one gives a short circuit and reb...

    Very good at an unbeatable price

    posted by Roland83 on 04/28/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This cardreader is very small and has a ring for a keychain. It is even smaller than the smallest usb-sticks around. Works great, it is just a standard USB removable disk.
    Cons:
    The build quality is not very good, although it seems adequate. The keyring seems not very sturdy. When it is attached to a key...
