    Use it before it's too late

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

    Pros:
    This protection circuit fits on the negative (-) side of standard 18650 lithium cells found in laptop batteries. It actually has 3 wires in the shape of thin stripes. The positive wire is the long one. It only taps the positive terminal of the battery. The ...
    Cons:
    It is incompatible with batteries that contain more cells in series. When first installed, the circuit is open by the protectio...

    What I needed

    posted by ZdenekJi on 03/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This product allows you to make a better use of a previously internal hard drive. It is hot-plug like all USB storage media (although this also depends on the OS). The box is very thin so that the whole package is not unnecessarily bulky. It supports USB 3...
    Cons:
    The drive won't spin down when the computer is powered off. This was probably just a feature of somebody's OS/drivers. The swit...

    Works wonders!

    posted by ZdenekJi on 11/15/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This device can make your WiFi dreams come true. It has substantially higher output power than what can be bought locally in so-called "developed countries" - police states. The device boosted the signal in the most distant room from the router by...
    Cons:
    It won't work well with multi-antenna network cards. The card cannot lock onto the plug that is being boosted, it randomly swit...

    Good for hobby purposes

    posted by ZdenekJi on 10/03/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Get a lifetime worth of networking plugs for your home. - If crimping goes wrong, just throw away and take another. - It seems to be made of resilient plastic.
    Cons:
    - High amount of wasters. It got to the point where I dumped the box on the table and inspected every single piece. I finally d...

    Good value

    posted by ZdenekJi on 05/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is the product that gets the market going. Many smokers won't ever try an e-cig due to the outrageous prices they are for everywhere. The package contains everything to get you going. Even including the electric components, you still get a better value...
    Cons:
    Out of the 10 pieces that I sold, there was one RMA of the battery part (I discovered that it leaked!) and one separate RMA of ...

    Interesting collectible item

    posted by ZdenekJi on 01/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This lighter looks indeed like a gun round. It is a good conversation starter, people get interested instantly. It could be a good present too. A must have for any lighter collector. The lighter is obviously refillable. And the flame size can be adjusted u...
    Cons:
    The biggest con is the badly made spark wire. Its insulation will burn in seconds and the lighter won't ignite anymore. Here is...

    posted by ZdenekJi on 12/31/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The knife has well-made parts made of steel, mostly stainless. It looks like a really expensive serious knife. It fits excellent in the hand. It has a liner lock against closing up on your hand and is opened by a pair of knobs screwed to the blade. These ca...
    Cons:
    Some people mentioned that the knife was sharp when it arrived. Well, most people have poor standards for what a sharp knife is...

    Why didn't I find it earlier?

    posted by ZdenekJi on 12/31/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Wow, this package is easily worth more than all the stuff you order with it. You get a USB dongle, a double jack TRS 3.5mm stereo cable (1.2m), three adapters for any cryptic remote conceivable and 2 DVDs full of flight simulators. AeroFly, Reflex XTR, Ph...
    Cons:
    Troubleshooting: AeroFly and others - the setup starts in Chinese and the characters are replaced with question marks, so on th...

    A Real Workhorse

    posted by ZdenekJi on 12/25/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The flagship of the controllers sold here on DX. All of its parameters are excellent: Strong SBEC, programmable either by a tester/radio or using a separately available card, all wires are insulated with silicone. The unit is comprised of two (probably ide...
    Cons:
    Don't get it wrong, the product is great, especially for its intended use, but I had to cope with a few things: The PCB is alm...

    This is what the big manufacturers use

    posted by ZdenekJi on 12/18/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This tape is definitely not fake, I have tried to burn through it with a soldering iron set to the max temperature where the solder readily crusts and the tape just merely bent under it and was shiny again after wiping. It is worth mentioning that this is ...
    Cons:
    None quality-wise, but the description should say something about the thickness.
