    Buy a few - treat your friends....

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

    Pros:
    Retractable cables are so portable. You will not coil and uncoil it on the move like a regular cable (or headphones) which ultimately destroys the internal wiring. The flat cable used in the retractable unit gets rolled and unrolled, which preserves its int...
    Cons:
    You really need to expand and retract the cable fully every time - even then the mechanism will snag from time to time, but par...

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

    Pros:
    If you need a replacement battery for a 30 Gig iPod Video (i.e. Generation 5 or 5.5 iPod Classic) this is a bog-standard kit at a reasonable price.
    Cons:
    Contrary to what some say, this isn't really right for a 60/80 Gig model - not because it's thinner but because the fatter batt...

    posted by bendigedig on 03/22/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Takes such a variety of cards (including SDHC) that the compactness is amazing. Can see several cards at once. The cabled USB plug will fit in recessed USB sockets that much smaller "key-style" readers cannot reach. Really cheap for what it does.
    Cons:
    The first one of these I bought came apart on first use. DX replaced it quickly and efficiently (as ever) but it left me with d...

    posted by bendigedig on 03/22/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Solid and well engineered (I'm surprised that other reviewers think otherwise) even compared to much more expensive equivalents. Works great with standard and SDHC cards up to 8Gigs (sadly, as yet I don't have a 16G!). Really compact. Really cheap.
    Cons:
    The "key ring" arrangement - which personally I don't use - precludes the protective cap from fitting on the other en...

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

    Pros:
    Cheap. Easy to program. Works with any remote.
    Cons:
    VERY dependent on "line-of-sight" for reliable operation. Flimsy - circuit board covered only by a sticker....

    posted by bendigedig on 03/22/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good value. Works with all DX's cheap e-cigarettes.
    Cons:
    No choice of strength or flavour -now that DX offer this with these cartridges there's no point in going for a "lucky dip&...

    Nice little paring knife....

    posted by bendigedig on 07/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Beautiful size for paring fruit, peeling vegetables, slicing cheese. Brilliant price. Despite warnings, survives cleaning at the very top of my dishwasher. Keeps its edge without sharpening.
    Cons:
    Not as sharp as a newly-sharpened metal blade. I avoid using it for chopping anything - even the pricey ones don't claim to be ...

    Give your old cassette player a new lease of life!

    posted by bendigedig on 07/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cassettes (especially in-car) don't get much use these days. We don't all have MP3 capability on our car stereos. This product solves both problems.
    Cons:
    You only get cassette quality reproduction (obviously) which is sub-FM. Not all car stereos which "swallow" a cassett...

    Start using that cassette player again!

    posted by bendigedig on 04/15/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Allows me to play MP3s in my car. Sounds better than my (admittedly ageing) tapes in my car's cassette player. Good for long runtimes - great for spoken word material like talking books etc.
    Cons:
    I have a CD changer in my car and this doesn't match it for sound quality (though it does compare quite well with the FM Radio)...

    Excellent Buy For DSL

    posted by bendigedig on 07/23/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent value if you want to play GH on a DS LITE - DSi's lack a GBA slot to plug it in to, whilst this package lacks a DS "phat" adapter.
    Cons:
    No good for original DS ("phat") as it does not include the adapter.
