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

    Pros:
    -A beautiful watch, certainly an eye-catcher. -It does as stated on DX - shows the date and time. And that's it. -Pretty heavy and feels just as nice.
    Cons:
    -Some leds are dim. -There seems to be bits of debris under the display. -The right part of the screen seems to have too much b...

    posted by TheGMan on 03/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Outputs a consistent 12.35v -Pretty cheap (and small) compared to alternatives
    Cons:
    -The cord is a little thin, but then again, I've been using this to power a small segment of a 509 white led strip (found on DX...

    72-LED Green Light Matrix Stainless Steel Watch

    posted by TheGMan on 03/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Very nice watch indeed. Feels a bit lighter than watches of a similar nature purchased elsewhere, but it looks exactly the same. -The leds are, indeed, brightness adjustable. There are 8 different modes: 1. Wow, bright 2. Wow, really bright 3. Dude, turn t...
    Cons:
    -The watch's band is a bit skinny and overall feels light (again, in comparison to other brand-name watches), otherwise, this i...

    3.5" LCD Digital Weather Forecast Thingee

    posted by TheGMan on 03/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -This one surprised me - it does a pretty good job at everything it's supposed to do. The clock works fine, the alarm isn't super loud but will certainly wake you up, the calendar can be set to 205x (doesn't really matter, does it?) and more importantly, th...
    Cons:
    -Although not stated in the manual or elsewhere, there is no back or front light. Not really a con, but must be noted. -Viewed ...

    Disposable Plastic Gloves (100-Glove Pack)

    posted by TheGMan on 03/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -It's pretty inexpensive and for the price, does what it's supposed to.
    Cons:
    It's fairly decent - I would use this for general hobby work and cleaning, though, it is guaranteed to rip between the fingers,...

    USB Powered Universal Cell Phone Battery Charger

    posted by TheGMan on 03/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works. Absolutely fantastic. Let me explain how this works: Fold down the USB connector (this stops the clamps from opening), take a 3.6 - 3.7v, flat battery (Li-Ion, NOT Li-Poly) and place it between the clamps of the charger. A green light will come on - ...
    Cons:
    The key chain part can get in the way.

    Solar Self-Recharge Keychain

    posted by TheGMan on 03/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Very bright due to the reflector. -The rubber body feels pretty good. -It actually *does* recharge. The internal battery is a single LIR2032 rechargeable button cell - worth more by itself (retail) than this key chain entirely.
    Cons:
    -Can be difficult to power on and off due to the cheap-feeling switch.

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

    -This thing is bright as all hell. There are three settings: Mode 1 is very bright Mode 2 is super bright Mode 3 is solar flare -Nice, 5MM wide-angle leds -Two places on the bottom to adhere magnets to (also available on DX)
    Cons:
    -Button is hard to push -The battery compartment would NOT allow my four, rechargeable "AA" batteries to fit -Althoug...

    2W 2-LED Automatic Emergency Illumination Light

    posted by TheGMan on 04/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works great after the REQUIRED modification for 110VAC use. Light output is very bright and lasts double the advertised runtime. The average duration of [useful] light output is about 3 hours (180 minutes).
    Cons:
    NOTHING, other than a handwritten sticker on the box, indicates this is for 110VAC use. The connectors are not even suited for ...
