    Accurate and useful

    posted by captjimjam on 02/22/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Useful little device for those who want to know their pulse, before/after/during exercising etc. - From what I can tell, the device seems quite accurate and gives consistant readings, for a pulse rate you would expect. - It comes with a lanyard so you can...
    Cons:
    It has a funny plastic film on the front which may peel off with general use.

    Great laser, well built

    posted by captjimjam on 02/22/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - The laser is of a much higher build quality than I was expecting. It has a nice (heavier than I expected) weight to it, which I like. - It's just so bright! I don't know the exact output power, or even an approximation of the output, as this is my first p...
    Cons:
    - The case was slightly different to the one shown in the picture, but that's not really an issue. - There's the obvious hazard...

    Strong and sturdy

    posted by captjimjam on 02/22/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It accepts a fairly large range of lights. I've been able to use it with my UF C2, my Aurora AK-3 P7 and the 9 LED lights. - It's pretty strong plastic and can accept being stretched appart for a large bodied light. - It's cheap, well cheaper than having ...
    Cons:
    Maybe it could be a little cheaper.

    A loud alarm

    posted by captjimjam on 01/16/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It comes with 2 remotes, and the remotes both have 3 AG13 batteries in them. - The alarm has a mounting bracket with it, and that has a swivel ball and socket joint, so you can direct the alarm sensor at what you want. - It's really loud!! - It has a DC i...
    Cons:
    A red LED stays on all the time in the alarm, so that may drain power a little quicker.

    Amazing calipers

    posted by captjimjam on 01/16/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - My first set of digital calipers, and these are really well made. - Price is really good, as these are sold for much more locally. - They came in a nice, protective carry case with foam surround. This means they are well protected when I'm not using them....

    It's a big fish

    posted by captjimjam on 01/16/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It's really big! Well bigger than I was expecting, and that's before it's put into the water. - It comes in a plastic packet with a card top, there are instructions on this. - It's really random.
    Cons:
    - None really so far, well I guess if any maybe the price is a bit more than I would normally pay for something like this.
