    Best bang for the buck bluetooth dongle

    posted by Skrenos on 11/25/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Plug and Play for XP and up. Low profile and rounded edge prevents snagging. Unobtrusive look makes it blend in with laptops. Actually works!
    Cons:
    A slight gap between body and case of laptop it was inserted into. I do understand that there needs to be some clearance to ac...

    General purpose thermal interface material.

    posted by Skrenos on 04/29/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap and you get lots of paste. Individually bagged to prevent leakage during shipment as a precaution. None of mine leaked inside of outside bag. Non-hardening compund.
    Cons:
    Paste separates very quickly in tub. Tub isn't perfectly sealed when you replace the top. We had one tub laying on it's side ...

    Soldering paste with caveats.

    posted by Skrenos on 04/29/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Soldering paste (flux + solder) for a low price. Well packaged and sealed for our protection, LOL. Solders well from general purpose, to SMDs, to BGAs.
    Cons:
    Way too thick. I had to add some AMTech flux (DX 20583) to this to make it usable. Stock form, it spreads terribly on solder ...

    Kapton tape for cheap.

    posted by Skrenos on 04/29/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Kapton tape for a great price. I've heard people complaining about receiving tape with garbage on the sides sticking to it or stuck labels, but I have none of those problems. The 2 rolls I received are spotless.
    Cons:
    Can't really think of any cons here. It's tape. How hard is it to mess it up?

    Top brand, low price.

    posted by Skrenos on 04/29/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Genuine AMTech soldering flux for an excellent price. Nice and creamy consistency so it stays put and doesn't run. Well blended like a lotion. It's pine flux, so there's a great pine smell. Washable with contact cleaner so easy to remove. If you get it ...
    Cons:
    Comes in one of those 'special' tubes that require you to buy the 'special' plunger or use it with a pneumatic dispensing system.

    Bright ideas

    posted by Skrenos on 08/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap. Dirt cheap. $0.10 each cheap. It's deals like these that makes DIY electronics more feasable. Bright. Not super bright, but bright enough. I've used mine to replace incandescent bulbs in flashlights and it's as bright or brighter than the origin...
    Cons:
    Really can't see any cons to LEDs. These are perfect. I have no way of testing the brightness claims, so can only assume they...

    Compact little money maker.

    posted by Skrenos on 08/01/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Description shows version 11, but I received version 12.5 cards. Vista support even though I personally wouldn't use Vista. Cheap price makes these great for reselling as the other hardware solutions on the market are 10x as much. Works as advertised and ...
    Cons:
    Description shows version 11 with the DIP chip in the socket. Version I received was 12.5 and there is no chip in the socket. ...
