    As advertised, but it has a somewhat shorter lifespan

    posted by Throd on 01/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Original Nokia product, according to the hologram sticker and apparent build quality. - Works well - keeps my Nokia 6120c going for several days without charging. - The price is pretty good an original Nokia replacement battery.
    Cons:
    - Lifespan is shorter than the battery that originally came with my phone. DX's battery only lasted about a year before not bei...

    A great travel or secondary adapter

    posted by Throd on 05/14/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    This USB-2.0-to-SATA adapter was just what I was looking for. I needed a small device to get reasonable (USB 2.0) speeds from a 3.5 inch drive, which means it must be able to connect to the power and was also portable and not bulky like those docks (I own t...
    Cons:
    For such a simple device I think the price could be lower. The included disc and manual are useless and should not be included ...

    Works.

    posted by Throd on 04/29/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The cable appears to be genuine, but all that really matters is that it has 'genuine quality', and it does. The cable has a good build quality, and the charging tip fits snugly and doesn't contact issues (which cause it to intermittently stop charging), at ...
    Cons:
    For such a simple cable it could be cheaper slightly cheaper. Nevertheless, the price is still very good.

    Exactly what I needed

    posted by Throd on 04/29/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A simple and convenient way to use regular size E27 lamps in those tiny E14 sockets. The build quality is better than I expected - the body is made of a tough, nonflexible, ceramic-like plastic, and the metal fittings are of good quality. I order five (with...
    Cons:
    Like mentioned before, the adapter adds a little bit of height to the socket (about 3.5 cm), but that seems inevitable. Perhaps...

    An extra button

    posted by Throd on 05/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Adds an extra button anywhere. I use every day to tighten the waist on my pants, and it works like a charm. High-quality build. I throw it into the washing machine still attached to the clothes and it come out shiny and rust-free (and the cloths aren't stai...
    Cons:
    Some useless colors. There needs to be at least four silver buttons. Took months to ship. Stocks are iffy.

    Does it's job.

    posted by Throd on 05/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Holds the pot lids. Hasn't melted yet, even though the plastic doesn't seem to be heat resistant. It seems others have found other things it can hold. It has a little reservoir to contain any drips from he lids. Easily washable (and apparently dishwasher sa...
    Cons:
    A little cheap and lightweight. No so lightweight with a metal pot cover on it, so I guess it's not much of an issue. Not so ea...

    Excellent, versatile charger

    posted by Throd on 05/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This charger surprised me with good build quality and versatility of use. I've used it to charge several different kinds of phones, and always keep all the tips in the car for friends who need a quick charge. You can use it to charge your phone in the car, ...
    Cons:
    The Car plug USB adapter has a strong power LED. This can be distracting. The adapter is also bulkier than it needs to be, cons...

    Protection for your Hard Drive

    posted by Throd on 05/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A good protective layer for your hard drive. The thick rubber corners protect the hard drive from all six sides, whilst still allowing access to the data and power ports. From the pictures I thought the hard drive may be able to fall out from the edge with ...
