    Tight fit but works

    posted by TechApprentice on 04/01/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Ordered this to prevent the SD card sticking out of the housing of my Raspberry PI and it works just fine. It is a tight fit, but when installed with care it is not a problem.
    Cons:
    The connector on the Raspberry Pi is very fragile, so take care when installing this adaptor, the fit is very tight and you do ...

    Great for light use (I think)

    posted by TechApprentice on 01/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works great and punch down is strong enough. Force needed seems a bit high compared to a tool I had used before but there is no damage to the connector so all is ok.
    Cons:
    The cutting tool to trim the access wire does not always work. But when you insert the wire almost straight (so without bends) ...

    Just works

    posted by TechApprentice on 12/19/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Comes in a pouch so you can keep al parts together easily. Rubbery feeling so a good grip, it will not easily slide out of your sweaty hand during the difficult presentation ;)
    Cons:
    USB receiver is quite big. Smaller would be nice.

    Surprisingly good fit

    posted by TechApprentice on 11/18/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It fits really well. I did not expect this. The plugs fir securely in the openings and do not fall out that easy. Of course because they stick out they can get caught and then they will give way, as they should.
    Cons:
    For my MBP 17inch I miss an extra usb plug. Since I use this port a lot it doesn't bother me. No easy way to keep track of them...

    Great for small laptop connectors

    posted by TechApprentice on 11/18/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Light and non cunducting tool wothout sharp edges. great for the removal of small connectors on the motherboard of an laptop. I did not use it for a screen.
    Cons:
    Its soft, sometimes to soft so small pieces might break of. When pushing wires back in place the tip slightly broke.

    Great for macbook pro battery

    posted by TechApprentice on 11/18/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    solid construction, 2 pieces so you have one spare (or you can modify one like I did) cheap
    Cons:
    its small, so if you need to apply some force you might need some extra tool to apply the force

    Great price - great quality

    posted by TechApprentice on 10/02/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is realy cheap compared with prices locally. I ordered 2 sets (4 pieces), for this price I would maybe get 1 in The Netherlands. Nice and clear protector. Looks like anti glare, so it limits aditional refelctions on your screen.
    Cons:
    The supplied cleaning cloth is nice for removing a little grease, but besides that it is useless. It introduced more dust parti...
