    great light, too bad it is out of stocl

    posted by borenibai on 06/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great light, good cone, perfect replacement for halogen lights, not expensive, gives off more light that the 35W halogen lights I used to have. Good, solid build, the radiator seems to take out the heat well.
    Cons:
    Gets a little bit warmer than I'd like, not comfortable to hold in hand which is probably not so useful to the LEDs, but nothin...

    Good replacement battery

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

    None so far.

    Good choice for sgs 1

    posted by borenibai on 01/10/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, light, no cables, has a working USB power port, supports 100/220V mains, has plugs for US/Japan and Europe, charges faster and more reliably than the original samsung ac charger, charges the standard battery or a replacement well, fits both regular (...
    Cons:
    No manual of any kind. The charger emits bright blue light if there is no battery or the battery is charged, and weird pinkish ...

    Pretty useful

    posted by borenibai on 11/15/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, cheap, works well as a serial port, flashable, which adds useful functionality (see the comments threads for details). I already made the eagle file for this (also available in the comments). SMD, so no need to drill PCBs when prototyping.
    Cons:
    Short range, very limited functionality without reflashing. SMD, so harder to solder by hand, and almost impossible to desold...

    Acceptable quality

    posted by borenibai on 08/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    When they work, they are neat: small, light, cheap, with good torque, and fairly easy to mod into a geared reversible DC motor, which is how I used mine.
    Cons:
    Weakly built. By the looks of it, the pot is the weakest part. One out of three I have came with a faulty pot and wasn't usable...

    Very useful item

    posted by borenibai on 07/30/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well-built, regulator included, strong enough to be usable yet safe, as they are not strong enough to cause eye damage. Quite cheap, too, and they come in twos.
    Cons:
    None at all. Worked very well for my purposes.

    Passable

    posted by borenibai on 07/17/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Sturdy, made from anodized aluminum in black and silver, so not the usual design eyesore that the Chinese phone accessories seem to be. Has a hole to attach a strap to, which is nice - I tend to lose the loose phone attachments all the time. Kind of wor...
    Cons:
    Biggest problem is it only works if held vertically at the screen. Tilted at an angle it works only if pressed strongly against...

    Excellent deal for the price

    posted by borenibai on 07/17/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is pointless to repeat the specs here, so: 1. works to specs 2. well built, good package, good LCD 3. reasonably accurate 4. English documentation available on the net 5. Unbeatable cost/performance
    Cons:
    * Not possible to use the 100 MHz hack anymore on the latest firmware. * The fan is a bit loud, but not as loud as some revie...

    posted by borenibai on 06/24/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very useful - - fast - precise within the specs on the box (compared to a calibrated thermometer) - spot, min, max, average functions are very handy - good build - laser pointer
    Cons:
    - bag is too small, the device fits in, but barely, it is kind of difficult to get it in, or get it out fast - there is no pro...

    Great replacement of the original battery

    posted by borenibai on 06/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works, fits well in the phone, lasts longer, much longer (can do over 24 hours on a single charge with serious display usage, wifi, bluetooth and all sensors enabled).
    Cons:
    The case smells funny of plastic for a few days, the matte finish does not match very well the otherwise shiny phone. In other ...
