    Great idea, mostly undone by bad design

    posted by apollo51 on 03/21/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works. Thats the pro. You are supposed to be able to walk over to your fridge, press the button, leave a message (eg, Please remember to put the rubbish out tonight!) and get on with things. As a concept, it is really good.
    Cons:
    It takes 10 seconds to boot up! It is plain silly, the thing sits there showing a manufacturers vanity screen for 10 seconds a...

    Looks great, although not sealed

    posted by apollo51 on 02/15/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a very good looking watch. It seems solid and the workmanship that you can see looks very good. I must disagree with the previous review, however. There is a small seconds dial, a small day/night ('moonphase') dial, and a small 24 hour clock dial...
    Cons:
    The watch is not sealed! When the weather gets humid, the inside of the watch gets steamed up. This means that is will probab...

    Not value for money

    posted by apollo51 on 01/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These devices do everything they claim - they change colour, they would float (for a short while) and they may well be slightly waterproof.
    Cons:
    The build quality is really quite bad. The packaging that came with the product suggested sale through an outlet in the UK - p...

    Reasonable enclosure, basic camera

    posted by apollo51 on 01/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The enclosure for this camera is quite good - I think it will be okay for outdoor mounting as long as it is well out of the weather - for instance mounting under eaves. The enclose LOOKS good too, without being over the top in size.
    Cons:
    The stand is pretty flimsy, it is the type with just one hole and a slot, the intention being that you fix the center hole and ...

    Suitable monitor for CCTV camera, general use

    posted by apollo51 on 01/06/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I purchased this product not as a reversing camera but as a monitor for use with CCTV. Normally with CCTV you would have a whole bunch of cameras going into a DVR - but sometimes you just want to test a camera, or you may just want one camera alone. This ...
    Cons:
    A reversing monitor has the image reversed from left to right - just like a mirror. For General CCTV you do not want this! Tu...

    Fun Bauble for kids, parties, and the office desk

    posted by apollo51 on 01/02/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    3 Big Pros - You get a colour changing LED, you get five of these in a pack, and it really does look quite good. This is a cute toy, it will grab the kids attention with the rapidly changing, flashing colours - and it will grab the adults attention because ...
    Cons:
    In the package I received, only 3 of the 5 bulbs worked. I am sure it is just teething problems - and probably by the time you...
