    Too small

    posted by bigbox on 01/15/2010 Certified Owner

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

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

    Pros:
    This things is fantastic. My only regret is that I didn't buy another one. Took this with me on a recent trip to France. Used it in three different hotel rooms, over 2 cities and never had any problems with it. Works perfectly and the built quality is f...
    Cons:
    It's a little big. Not unique to this particular adapter. These things in general are massive.

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

    Cons:
    Build quality is not the best. The finish on the plastic handle is not great. One of them was a little rough. You get what y...

    Great little light

    posted by bigbox on 01/23/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright for it's size and battery. Reminds me of the old Maglite Solitaire. Unfortunately, not quite the same body build quality. Brighter than the UltraFire C3 Cree (SKU 1993).
    Cons:
    Could be cheaper. There was a small scratch on the body. I also got a weird green biner, not the red or blue one pictured.

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

    Pros:
    Nice little cable. Indeed supports 1080p. Bought for my PS3. The cable itself seems to be very well made and it fit very nicely into both the port of my TV and PS3.
    Cons:
    The "HDMI" stickers at the heads are a little off and probably will peel off. But in the grand scheme of things, it ...
