    Awesome multitap for an awesome price, but check the caveat.

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

    Pros:
    It's a real multitap, not just a splitter, real tap! It's incredibly cheap! No interference problems! It's very sturdy - I already put it through quite some abuse. Has mounting holes!
    Cons:
    Here's the catch: China has a slightly different F-connector. It's not the same as in Europe or America, it is slightly larger....

    Great product

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

    Pros:
    They come, well-protected, in a bubblewrap bag. The build quality is consistent, I haven't found a bad connector so far and they all look the same. This is very good. For 100 connectors I would pay $60 in a local store, so they are also very cheap! They wo...
    Cons:
    Can't think of much. Nothing really. Nope. I'm trying, but I can't think of any con. At all. I just don't know. They are perfec...

    Useful when you don't need a permanent light

    posted by W3irdN3rd on 07/30/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I use it in the hallway so I can see where I'm walking without searching for the light switch in the dark and waking everybody up with the big lights. It works on rechargeable batteries. It responds well to motion and can be configured so it only lights up ...
    Cons:
    The spring for the batteries is a bit too long, making it very hard to get the batteries in or out without damage. You'll possi...

    Just works

    posted by W3irdN3rd on 07/01/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works. Very small adapter, can be used to plug some devices directly into a USB-hub or extension cable, or if your device is very light, into a regular USB port on your computer/monitor. Seems quite sturdy, but time will have to tell if it survives long ter...
    Cons:
    Adapter can be bend a bit. I'm not sure if this could hurt it in the long term, which is why I gave it four stars for build qua...

    Does exactly what it says

    posted by W3irdN3rd on 04/05/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I've been looking for a device like this for a long time. It'll work with any infrared remote, unlike much more expensive solutions that come with their own remote. It's simple to program and the power can also be switched on/off with the small button. It's...
    Cons:
    Why oh why is it not available with Schuko (common in continental Europe) connectors? If I had to I'd pay double for this thing...
