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

    Pros:
    Excellent product. It is very, very small. It looks twice as big on the pictures. I really suggest tying it to your keychain or something else. I've tied it to a mini flashlight just so I couldn't lose it: http://dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.1100 Mini fla...
    Cons:
    It gets a bit warm, nothing serious but something to keep in mind. Read / write speeds are not great, but i don't care for smal...

    Great product

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

    Pros:
    Great product. Is very small and the cables 'click' nicely. Build quality isn't that great. When you apply pressure to both ends it will break clean in two halves. However, I've found it proves usefull as i've resoldered it so it is a straight to crossed ca...
    Cons:
    Build quality could be better. Although I received my product intact, i can imagine it could break during shipment.

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

    Pros:
    Worked with every USB product I've tested (including flash drives, external hard drives, spectrocalorimeter, etc., etc.). Haven't specifically tested it for USB 2.0 but the data throughput was excellent. Excellent build quality. Has a thick, sturdy cable th...
    Cons:
    None that i can think of.

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

    Pros:
    Excellent for an emergency replacement. Will do the job for you. In other words: will conduct electricity.
    Cons:
    Doesn't fit all multimeters and doesn't match the picture on the product page. This is however nothing that some pliers and a u...

    Great 'can' opener

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

    Pros:
    Build quality was surprisingly good. There was no instruction included but there are a lot of them on the internet. Very easy to use, you will be able to open up your box without any problems or scratches.
    Cons:
    No user instructions included. Can't think of anything else.

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

    Pros:
    Great price, as you'd expect from dealextreme. This is a very compact cable and doesn't use up a lot of space. You can always take it with you for 'emergencies'. Does the job.
    Cons:
    Build quality is not so great at all. Mine broke after about one month. Cable is firmly attached to the connector but the inter...

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

    Pros:
    Good build quality, excellent USB throughput. Good cable thickness. Also works with bus-powered devices. I have tested it with usb to serial converters, usb sticks and spectrometers.
    Cons:
    Exterior of the female usb connector is not shielded. Shielding it may protect against short-circuit in some applications. Othe...
