    Large size and 0.1g resolution - very happy

    posted by clanrat on 12/28/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice large size of unit and tray. Has decent capacity. Accuracy is comparable to other units available to me. Tray doubles as lid when not using the unit.
    Cons:
    Can be hard to get the tray on as a lid lined up properly sometimes. Display is hard to see from some angles. Would be nice if ...

    220 lumens? Doubtful, but is a nice little light

    posted by clanrat on 07/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good size for a AA. Heavy wall aluminium construction will stand up to some serious abuse. Flush switch allows tailstand Simple operation with no modes to click through - on or off! Machining is a bit rough but anodizing is very smooth. Knurling is ok, coul...
    Cons:
    Wrist strap is small and flimsy feeling. Also had to re-thread it through tailcap holes to permit stable tailstand. Would have ...

    A lot of light in a small package

    posted by clanrat on 07/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice build quality. Fit and finish is good. Anodizing has no noticeable flaws. Machining is decent and the threads engage reasonably well. Brightness on high is good, and the strobe is also very good. I like the flush button on this one - allows tailstandi...
    Cons:
    The pocket clip is wire and feels a bit flimsy. 'strike crown' is aluminium and won't stand to up much abuse. This light is too...

    Excellent quality for the price

    posted by clanrat on 07/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I was pleasantly surprised by the superior fit and finish of this unit. The machining and surface finish are excellent. The brass coloured ring is a nice accent, and when you screw the battery hatch closed you can barely see the seam. Nice and bright on hig...
    Cons:
    Memory operation is iffy if you're turning it on and off rapidly. I think there's a fix in the forums if this is important to y...

    Nice looking package, but falls a bit short

    posted by clanrat on 07/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, portable, battery powered, reasonably easy to use. Integrated multimeter functions Excellent display. Bright, clear, and easy to read from most angles. Comes with a carrying case.
    Cons:
    Averaging does not seem to work. Poor low signal level (10mv) performance. Packed very poorly and arrived in a crushed box. ...

    You can't lose with this little powerhouse

    posted by clanrat on 07/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This really is an excellent little scope for the price. It has a lot of features that are missing from my Teks that are 4x the price. Reasonable low signal level performance and the averaging works quite well. The bright display is easy to read from almos...
    Cons:
    Came with useless power cord Keypress beep gets very annoying, very fast. Wasn't packed for shipping well, but did arrive in ...

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

    Pros:
    These represent really unbeatable value for people looking for tweezers for electronics and other assembly or technical tasks. I was sceptical when I ordered, and thought I'd take a chance. I was very pleasantly surprised when they arrived and were of very ...
    Cons:
    None so far

    OK accuracy, buggy firmware, and deaf as a post

    posted by clanrat on 02/17/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    This unit is nice and small with a common power supply connector, internal batteries, and a standard SMA connector on it. Unit comes with a wideband UHF antenna (mine was labelled 400-470MHz) and a 120VAC power supply.
    Cons:
    In some of the menus the arrow keys are backwards. Not a huge issue. More of a problem is the lack of sensitivity. This thing i...
