    A fun fan

    posted by Strath on 03/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I got this for a 3 -4 year old who loves fans. Not a lot of air moved of course but it certainly works and the fan blades are soft rubber so not a safety problem despite not being shielded. He can put his finger into the fan without anything else hitting ...
    Cons:
    The USB charging cable seems to be a little off dimension but everyone has a stack of them so not a worry.

    Excellent product

    posted by Strath on 03/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A well made product from a highly reputable manufacturer and at a good price compared to other sources. Clear display with lots of user options to customise it to your use. I am an electronics engineer so had to have a look inside and was happy with what ...
    Cons:
    It takes a little while to get used to the five way button but it does work well enough. Reading the instructions first might ...

    Works both ways

    posted by Strath on 09/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A well made and easy to use gadget. No instructions needed, just rotate and see what pops out. The pins for US/AUST/NZ have to be adjusted by hand but it is easy and obvious. Really useful in that it is effectively a double ended adapter not just your cou...
    Cons:
    There is no provision for grounding pins but since in most cases the devices being used with it are double insulated there is n...

    It works!

    posted by Strath on 09/08/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I opened it up to change the cord over because the supplied adapters did not suit my Samsung netbook. Internally it is a quite well made product using normal commercial grade components and techniques. I wanted a charger to use in a vehicle so the 12V side ...
    Cons:
    It didn't have the connector needed for my Samsung netbook. I solved that problem by buying a DX 80147 and changing the cable...

    Decent product

    posted by Strath on 09/08/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A good product of standard commercial quality. I opened it up as I only bought it to get the cable which I needed to go with SKU 70144 which had no Samsung compatible connector. Cable swap over easy and I still have the power supply as a spare.
    Cons:
    None, no problem if it can supply more current than your laptop or netbook needs they only take what they need.

    A good quality name brand product

    posted by Strath on 04/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Made by one of the names in the field this is a well designed product which works out of the box. Go to the holux.com site and download the right drivers before installing. The same site also has the complete users manual. Works well with OziExplorer sof...
    Cons:
    None really, it just works, as a well designed product should.
