    Great Calculator At A Great Price

    posted by angusW on 08/05/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This calculator does all of the basic calculations that one needs and does it with accuracy. No need of batteries as there is a solar panel that keeps the LCD working. Thin design with no buttons. More of a touch panel. Doesn't take much effort to actuate a...
    Cons:
    I wish there were a few more functions such as 1/X or v. The solar panel is a bit small so it will take a pretty good light sou...

    Not too bad for reading at night

    posted by angusW on 08/05/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is one of the cheapest reading lights I have ever seen. Can't believe it's at this price. You can use both of the supplied batteries at once or just use one battery for reduced but enough light. The colour is fantastic. Just love the colour white.
    Cons:
    I'm having a really difficult time keeping this on the book. There is no clipping mechanism to keep it attached so it is not a ...

    These ear-buds wrap around the back of the neck

    posted by angusW on 04/25/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    You can't get too much cheaper for ear-buds than these. The metal casing of the buds are of pretty good construction. the colour of the casing and the connector are pleasing to my eye.
    Cons:
    I did not read all of the reviews but just looked at the customer pic which showed both wires being the same length. I was surp...

    Pretty decent light

    posted by angusW on 06/15/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great price for this light. Pretty decent build quality. The clicky is solid and works well.
    Cons:
    Smooth reflector will give rings which I find quite annoying. Can't seem to find a replacement reflector on DX. Does not use a ...

    A fine lens hood.

    posted by angusW on 06/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    If you own a Canon EF-S 17-85 lens then this is the hood that fits it. Pictures will not be washed out due to stray light, be that sunlight or lights in a room. Pictures will have greater contrast. Lens hood is reversible so it will fit into your camera bag...
    Cons:
    When in place it does feel a bit loose. The inside surface of the hood could be a better matte. In other words not as shiny.

    A spectaculary battery holder

    posted by angusW on 06/05/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This will hold four double A's or four triple A's batteries like no other holder I have every in all my life come across. Stops batteries from rolling around on the shelf. Comes in three different colours to match your socks. Join the three cases together a...
    Cons:
    The only weak point on these battery cases is the hinge. Actually it's not much of a hinge, just a piece of plastic. Mine haven...

    Great product, excellent price

    posted by angusW on 06/05/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This thing is built very well. Very solid. Also very small. You can slip it into your pocket with no problem. Has a button for instant shot and another button that will wait two seconds before taking a shot. Works every time with my Canon 350D/Rebel XT. I'v...
    Cons:
    Can't think of any cons.

    Cheap price for a good laser.

    posted by angusW on 06/05/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This really is a green laser. The build quality feels fairly solid. It has a nice heft to it. I haven't measure it but it will travel very far. Quite impressed. I really like the colour of the housing. Everything should be in black.
    Cons:
    There is no instant on. When you press the switch to turn it on, the laser will flash for a fraction of a second. To get it to ...

    The best knife on DX

    posted by angusW on 06/04/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    In my opinion, this is a very nice looking knife. The width of the blade is quite wide so there is less worry of snapping it. You are able to open this knife using one hand and locking it in place secure knowing that it will not close on your fingers. Has a...
    Cons:
    Was not the sharpest when it first arrived. A bit tough to open with one hand (adjustment can be made). For southpaws it is ver...

    An every day carry knife.

    posted by angusW on 03/14/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very small knife that can easily fit into the my jeans small pocket. When the blade is extended out, it is locked into position with no fear of it closing on my fingers.
    Cons:
    When I got it, it was not very sharp. Other people report that theirs was sharp but mine wasn't. Need two hands to open the kni...
