    Nice box, but not for all

    posted by RomByDan on 05/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Has HDMI output * Can share. * Big remote - not so easy to lose between sofa cushions
    Cons:
    * Does not read Irdeto2 and Conax cards making it useless for legal VivaTV (aka Orion Express) subscribers. * It's default fir...

    Nice, but a bit overrated

    posted by RomByDan on 04/24/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice price. Good quality. Works well ("compatible" battery, bought from eBay, is glitchy, giving random shutdowns, even when on AC)
    Cons:
    9-cell (sku.55562) costs only about $2 more Overrated a bit. Lenovo battery manager shows design capacity of 47.52Wh right out...

    Works great, connectors marked wrong

    posted by RomByDan on 04/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's useful nowadays, for those who want to keep their good old keyboard and mouse. Build quality is good enough. Price, as always.
    Cons:
    Connectors have wrong marks on them, as another buyer already stated. Keyboard works in both, mouse - only in one marked with k...

    Whisper in the night

    posted by RomByDan on 08/29/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It does its job. If set to minimum, can be a cute night lamp - the LED inside is bright enough.
    Cons:
    It makes some kind of hissing noise when not set to one position in mid-high. It's ok in the day, but in night it pissed me off...

    The whispering thing

    posted by RomByDan on 05/08/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Surprisingly well-built. Considering the price, I thought I'll get yet another cheap fan. You know, kinda like stock ones in most PC cases - just a bit larger and working off AC mains, instead of 12V DC. But when I've put my hands on it - I've realized it's...
    Cons:
    None so far.

    Nice batteries, but not for laptop

    posted by RomByDan on 03/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice quality so far - I see no degradation after 3 months of heavy use.
    Cons:
    Seems to be overrated - mine can hold only 1900mAh when used as replacement in my good old Thinkpad T43.

    It works. Partially

    posted by RomByDan on 01/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Price. It's just unbeatable. Ease of use. You can't go wrong, if you see computer not the first time in your life. It's cable comes handy for many other mnin-USB devices.
    Cons:
    It's cheap, so don't expect it will be working without a trouble. All 3 I bought have the same problem: only 2 of 3 ports are ...

    Real workhorse among hubs

    posted by RomByDan on 11/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great quality for such a cheap thing. Real aluminum case - not a silver-painted plastic. It is powered - so you get no more messages about "power limit exceeded". Excellent thing, but even the sun has spots on it - and this hub is not totally flaw...
    Cons:
    With AC adapter plugged - it prevents my computer from shutting down properly. Fans are spinning, and, most annoying - I can't ...

    Real workhorse among hubs

    posted by RomByDan on 10/02/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works. Just works, without problems - plug it in and don't mind what port to use, all 7 are working. Great build quality for the price: it isn't a cheap plastic thing with lots of silver painting - it really has aluminum casing.
    Cons:
    All cons are about power adapter. It's plug is US standard, so, if you live somewhere else - you need an adapter. It provides...

    Pretty earphones

    posted by RomByDan on 03/04/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good sound quality. It is not excellent, but hey, just look at their price! This is not Sennheisers product, so don't expect professional sound quality - it's just a pair of earphones for everyday use, especially if you want isolate yourself from big city n...
    Cons:
    Sound is not crystal pure, it lacks high frequencies and clarity. But for listening MP3s in noisy areas - it's ok. It is LOUD. ...
