    Good jumpers

    posted by bbobthebuilder on 05/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very useful. Can be used on standard 10mil pin headers. They fit really well, it's easy to insert or remove them, but they don't fall of themselves. The price is good, but the quality is even better, extremely good for DX standards.
    Cons:
    None, really.

    Good 7 segment display

    posted by bbobthebuilder on 05/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's four 7 segment display units with a decimal point in one package. The LEDs in it are quite bright, about 15 to 20 mA per digit is enough to have a very luminuous display in the dark and it's still easily readable in daylight (it looks a bit pale under ...
    Cons:
    The unit I received is common-cathode. That's why I gave it only 4 stars ease of use, since that means one can't use most of th...

    Nice little flashlight

    posted by bbobthebuilder on 01/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright tiny little flashlight. It's barely bigger than an AAA battery (plus the lens). For that price you get a very good product. I find the button very conveniently placed.
    Cons:
    The carabiner clip is barely functional and very cheaply made. That's not why I bought this though, it doesn't really matter to...

    Great cover

    posted by bbobthebuilder on 01/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Magnets to hold the cover, it's quite thight. Can be used in three different positions, either lay it flat on the table, fold it to a triangle (with a slight angle) or make it stand up, like an image frame. Provides reasonable protection for my pad and its ...
    Cons:
    None really. It looks a bit cheap maybe.

    Good WLAN adapter

    posted by bbobthebuilder on 01/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very small - Comes with a powerfull antenna, good signal strength - Good quality (really, it's one of the best of many DX products I have) - Cheap price considering the quality. I wouldn't even get a a/b/g dongle for that price here. - Drivers available n...
    Cons:
    - Not really bad, but it needs a driver in order to work

    Handy LED flashlight

    posted by bbobthebuilder on 01/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Extremely handy LED flashlight. It's cheap and very small, basically a bit more than an AAA battery. It's quite sturdy too and the brightness is amazing for such a small device.
    Cons:
    I have a lot of those flashlights and the switch quality varies greatly. Some of them tend to "stick" in either the o...

    Cheap power for your devices

    posted by bbobthebuilder on 01/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap power adapter for all kind of devices. Works as advertised. I didn't measure it, but if it provides the promised 5A the power/price ratio is extremely good. Even under high load it only gets slightly hot. Very durable, it have it running 24/7 for...
    Cons:
    The heatsinks (inside the case) are only loosely connected to the rest of the circuit, they pick up vibrations easily and I fea...

    Pros:
    - Very cheap compared to other products - Quite powerful, I coulnd't legally buy that in a store here - Extremely bright

    My device sometimes flickers or doesn't turn on. There's something loose somewhere and I can't figure out what it is.

    Good cover

    posted by bbobthebuilder on 08/07/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Good back case for your Galaxy SII. - Fits very thight, which is good. - Provides good protection - Case is hard, but flexible enough to easily (dis-)mount it - Has openings correctly placed for all relevant stuff. - Provides additional grip on the side (...
    Cons:
    It makes it a little harder to press the volume and power button, but that's really all there is to say.

    Nice screen protector

    posted by bbobthebuilder on 08/07/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very cheap - Comes with cleaning cloth (which is really necessary) - Doesn't infere with the display colors. Reduces glare a little bit (IMHO). You won't notice it, if you don't know it (with your eyes, you can feel it with your hand of course). - Easy to...
    Cons:
    - You'll need a little bit of patience to apply to your phone. It takes some time until there aren't any air bubbles or dust le...
