    Awesomeness

    posted by VisiBlanco on 11/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The metal looks amazing, it has a two toned stripe where the metal turns from brushed to polished. Good size, weight feels good in hand, and comes with windproof coil which actually works quite well. I like the mechanism for lighting it as it protects the i...
    Cons:
    The flame could have a more accessible adjustment, but it's not hard to change with a dime or fingernail - probably easier than...

    Good torch, although imperfect

    posted by VisiBlanco on 10/11/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The finish looks really good, it's bright (comes close to my 3xQ5 light but not really the 900 lumens stated), copper+aluminum pill/slug, quality battery contacts, and it feels good in hand.
    Cons:
    The tail clickie is a couple millimeters larger than the standard size (roughly 19.5mm at its max diameter) so none of the DX r...

    Happy Overall

    posted by VisiBlanco on 10/03/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The finish and machining look outstanding (I'd love to see some more HA-III natural finishes from DX). The reflector produces a relatively wide spill with a nice medium-sized spot.
    Cons:
    The metal is quite thin but nothing unexpected for the price, it feels good with batteries. My reflector has obvious scratching...

    Well-built, Reasonably Priced Ballhead

    posted by VisiBlanco on 06/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price is great compared to similar ballheads (Benro KS-1) and the quality seems on par to me. The movement is fluid and the separate friction knob allows my camera to remain steady while readjusting. The separate panning knob and degree display will be ...
    Cons:
    It would be nice if the ballhead included a bubble level somewhere, the quick-release plate is well-secured but could maybe be ...

    Nice UV Flashlight with some caveats

    posted by VisiBlanco on 06/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The body is pretty nice and can be used with a number of different P60 drop-ins such a the Cree Q5 drop-in. The price is good and has actually dropped a dollar since I bought it. It will brightly fluoresce anything within roughly 20-35 feet (depending on th...
    Cons:
    Unfortunately, the UV LED emitter was thermally glued cooked onto the drop-in module. This causes my spot to be out of alignmen...

    Can't go wrong for 1 cent

    posted by VisiBlanco on 06/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I generally add this to my orders for a refreshing change from the standard logo. I hear it can expedite the pace at which packages travel through customs. For one cent, it's worth adding this to your cart at least once.
    Cons:
    Seems to be a sticker over the normal printed logo, but it's well-secured and manages to be pretty stealthy.

    Inexpensive Epoxy Glue

    posted by VisiBlanco on 06/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good acrylic-based adhesive glue that sets up in about 5 minutes (once the two chemicals are mixed together). Full set time for me was around 24-48 hours. Especially good for binding plastics. The spreader/mixer stick it comes with is very useful and can be...
    Cons:
    The glue does smell quite a bit so make sure to have some ventilation going during use.

    Inexpensive, Glowing O-Rings

    posted by VisiBlanco on 06/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    O-Rings arrived in good condition with the exception of a small tear on one of them. Useful for replacing a worn out o-ring, or adding extra o-rings to improve water resistance.
    Cons:
    They get pretty bright initially but start to dim quickly thereafter. They are still useful for about 45-75 minutes after charg...

    Good Thermometer/Hygrometer

    posted by VisiBlanco on 06/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Pretty good price, although not substantially cheaper than what I've seen in stores locally. It seems to be much more accurate than budget thermometers/hygrometers I've had in the past. It's able to reliably gauge and withstand 99% relative humidity. It has...
    Cons:
    It would be nice to see the indoor and outdoor temperatures without having to press the button. I would like the ability to set...

    Good Quality Tailcaps

    posted by VisiBlanco on 06/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great tailcaps which have a good solid feel. I like having the variety, although I decided to outfit all of my lights with the glow in the dark variety for the time being. The glow in the dark tailcaps aren't super bright but they still prove useful to me a...
    Cons:
    The black is kind of boring in my opinion, it would be interesting to see tailcaps of this size in a darker blue, gray, and sil...
