    Good light output

    posted by Wirral_guy on 12/15/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good value light strip for general lighting. The light is quite cold (blu-ish) but very useable. I have mine in my log store/shelter which is 2 metres x 3 metres (6f x 10f in old money!) and it provides a good level of light - eqivalent to say a 60w in...
    Cons:
    The led strip is loose in the aluminium case, it sits in slots and just slides out - fine for me as I haven't used the case but...

    Useful Holiday Item

    posted by Wirral_guy on 07/03/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small Rechargeable Simple to use This is a really useful item to have for travelling. It is fairly light, small and has rechargeable batteries (5v so USB is fine too). The sound quality is fine for holiday by the pool or on the beach and the sound is surpri...
    Cons:
    Not audiophile quality (but what do you expect from an egg 3" high by 2.5" wide!). Not sure how long the expanding be...

    A lot iof torch for little cash

    posted by Wirral_guy on 01/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is an immense amount of torch for less than $10. The perfect EDC torch for most people as you get the best of all worlds - a nice open spread for general lighting and a spectacular zoom for when you need it. More than bright enough for 90% of people ...
    Cons:
    This seems to have a different led module than the other P4s I have - this one has quite a pronounced yellow halo, most noticea...

    Easy-to-use card

    posted by Wirral_guy on 01/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Personally I think this is the best card out there for novice DS users - the interface is easy, the menus well laid out and it is easy to explain how to use it. This is my 3rd card (all bought as presents) and I have given them to people that just want to p...
    Cons:
    Compared to some of the other cards out there, the functions are a little limited (in-game saves etc) Build quality could be be...

    Handy Item

    posted by Wirral_guy on 01/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Another handy item from DX Extreme Basically it is what it is - a mirror on a stick! Handy for looking at stuff from odd angles - whether that is your teeth or other body parts, hard to reach places in your car or deep in electrical products to find that dr...
    Cons:
    Ok build quality - a bit rough and ready, especially the joint, but still serviceable. I'd be worried if my dentist used one bu...

    Cheap but useful

    posted by Wirral_guy on 01/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A great price for an essential item if you are a builder Good quality thermal paste with none of the hype associated with branded items 10-pack means you can always have some handy ready for that component change I've even used some on a peltier stove fan p...
    Cons:
    None really - it just does what it says on the tin (UK ad blurb reference!)

    Great starter set

    posted by Wirral_guy on 01/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A great set of picks for the novice user I bought a set just to have a 'play' at lock-picking and I have had great fun with a couple of spare locks and padlocks. Not the best quality in the world but for a novice (like me) then it is hard to complain. A go...
    Cons:
    The tension bar arrived next to useless as it is too wide to fit many locks in the UK (Yale or Euro type) -I had to file mine ...

    Great, cheap replacement

    posted by Wirral_guy on 01/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great replacement for the original sylii for the NDS lite. pack comes in assorted colours which pleased my girlfriend Quality as good as the originals Brilliant price - a replacement set of 2 in UK costs £9.95. Impossible to tell the difference betwee...
    Cons:
    At this price there are no cons - it is a simple set of replacements for the over-priced originals

    Nice EDC knife

    posted by Wirral_guy on 01/11/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    An excellent little knife for use as an EDC. Small but fairly sharp blade useful for the usual everyday tasks - box opening etc. The clip is especially useful as you can slip it on and off your bag/lanyard very quickly. Nice Spyderco logo on the blade
    Cons:
    Not the best build quality in the world but still good for the price. Unlikely to be a real Spyderco for the money.

    Quality connectors

    posted by Wirral_guy on 11/25/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A great product for almost nothing. These are ideal for anybody who builds models, electronics etc as they provide the perfect connection for small motors, laser modules etc. Also good just as jumper cables (after cutting off the connector. Build is quite g...
    Cons:
    None really - certainly at this price. Not always a tight fit between the male and female but with a set of 10 you can mix an m...
