    Lid won't stay on tight

    posted by SandyA on 07/22/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    It's nice that it's silicone, so I can heat up food at work in the microwave. I don't do that with plastic containers because heating plastic can cause it to break down and leech into the food. It seems fairly durable and the build in spork is handy.
    Cons:
    The lid is not very secure. I don't trust it to stay in place when bringing food to work. It certainly won't seal anything with...

    Excellent for charging

    posted by SandyA on 01/28/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this because the cable for my HP Touchpad died and for those who have had a similar problem, you know how hard it can be to find a reasonably priced replacement. The Touchpad is quite particular about what is used to recharge it. This seems to be...
    Cons:
    It's barely a con, but I wouldn't have minded if it was a little longer. However the length is clearly indicated, so there's n...

    I use mine all the time

    posted by SandyA on 12/09/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    For the price, this is an amazing deal. I use it to watch movies and occasionally play games. I also downloaded a workout app and use it on my TV.
    Cons:
    There can be a bit of a lag. When it first boots, it looks like everything has loaded, but it still takes another minute to fin...

    Solved my problem

    posted by SandyA on 12/09/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I use this to charge my HP Touchpad with Android. Using other usb cables, I would get a warning message saying that the device wasn't charging. I guess they couldn't pass enough current. I also like the length. I can comfortably use my tablet while it's pl...
    Cons:
    None.

    Startled a colleague

    posted by SandyA on 12/09/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    At first glance, it looks like a really big house fly. It's good for startling people. I keep mine at the office.
    Cons:
    The magnet can come out fairly easily. You might need to glue it back.

    Works as expected

    posted by SandyA on 12/09/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It delivers as expected. It both charges and gives a data connection between my phone or tablet and PC. In fact, if I order this again, I might get 2 or 3 just to have some back-ups. At this price, they're almost disposable items.
    Cons:
    Nothing much. The mini USB connection is a little loose, but it's really trivial. It's nothing that would deter me from buying ...

    Big Handed

    posted by SandyA on 04/06/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I work with computers and find that smaller mouses cause problems with my hand. It gets sore if I handle a mouse that is too small - a form of repetitive stress injury - This is an inexpensive mouse that is excellent for basic office work for people with l...
    Cons:
    I'm not much of a gamer, but I suspect there isn't enough functionality for serious gamers. But that's obvious in the description.

    Fun for kids

    posted by SandyA on 09/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a fun little toy. Kids will like it and it's always fun to watch them play with entertaining things. The price is good. If it gets broken or lost, I won't hesitate to purchase another one. It's been such a fun toy that it's already needed a batter...
    Cons:
    Works well. I can't think of any cons. It delivers as promised.

    Works fairly well

    posted by SandyA on 09/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this when I was disappointed with the amount of light a new fixture in my bathroom was giving. I liked that it didn't require any wiring and could be easily mounted. The motion detection range was a pleasant surprise. It works well.
    Cons:
    I wish it cast more light. In a closet, this would be great. But I was looking to supplement the light in an illuminated room a...

    Good for kids

    posted by SandyA on 09/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fun game to play - especially with kids. The deck is colourful, so kids really enjoy that. The rules are simple. Handy to have around for a rainy day or to leave at the cottage.
    Cons:
    The cards maybe aren't of the highest quality. Who cares though? It's a deck of playing cards. They work fine. For a knock off...
