    Great bang for the buck!

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

    Pros:
    It seems to be from Kingston itself, and not a bootleg copy of the original one. Having the SD adapter is handy now that most people only use MicroSD for mobile phones, but an adapter is still needed for other kinds of uses (for example, Raspberry Pi), and ...
    Cons:
    None I can think of. It would have been better if the plastic detachable packaging would have been more compact to use as a car...

    Arduino UNO r3 at an unbeatable price

    posted by dardhal2 on 11/16/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is difficult, if not impossible, to tell this (chinese) version of the board apart of the "real" italian one. Feels very well built and machined. The one I received sports an Atmega 16U2 and the new pins, so definitely an r3 board (check http:/...
    Cons:
    None so far.

    Great battery for backup, or even light phone use

    posted by dardhal2 on 12/31/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    We all know that smartphones are battery intensive, and depending on use, you could have the need to recharge your phone daily, or even keep it plugged to a USB port to keep the battery ready for work. But sometimes, your battery runs out of energy, and you...
    Cons:
    There shouldn't be any reason to worry, at least after some battery charge / discharge cycles, but for now I'm not going to tak...

    A must have for people doing art with beads

    posted by dardhal2 on 12/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Check SKU 14624 for what beads are (little crystals geometrically shaped in several formsthat are put into strings along a nylon or metal string to build rings, brecelets, earings and all sorts of those things). Swarovski is the world leader in this field. ...
    Cons:
    None I can think of. Cheap, rigid, the perfect size for beads, transparent lids, can be attached to each other on the four side...

    Girlfriends love this one

    posted by dardhal2 on 12/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Have bought several of these keychains so far, and everyone of them had the same expensive-looking finish, and the clock worked flawlessly in all of them. Makes for a great (cheap) present that could be taken as an expensive one.
    Cons:
    None I can think of. Except, maybe, I have to order some more for my girlfriends' relatives and friends, because all of them lo...

    Light, small and cheap

    posted by dardhal2 on 12/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have to admit that I don't use mouses a lot (and old-time Linux console user here :-) ). But people around me use them extensively, and working with portable computer touchpads on a regular basis is not something I would recommend to anyone. Worst of all,...
    Cons:
    Mouse buttons work but seem somewhat depressed with respect to the mouse body. Mouse wheel has never worked for me, neither in ...

    Also fits (some) 10.2" Netbooks on the market

    posted by dardhal2 on 12/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This neoprene bag has been a saver for my 10.2" netbook. It is designed for smaller ones, but as the neoprene is somewhat elastic, it fits my 10.2" one (and it should fit other the same screen size). A bit harder to stuff the netbook into it, but ...
    Cons:
    None so far. As it has experienced extensive use for about a year now and the neoprene is a bit more stressed than using it on ...

    The kind of thing that women love

    posted by dardhal2 on 12/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    If you have a girlfriend, wife, sister, daughter...you know these kind of things make them happy (at least for a while). Bought several letters so far, and all of them show the same level of quality and good finish. The hanger is solid and the clock door, a...
    Cons:
    One out of the several ones I have ordered so far had the clock stopping randomly for no good reason, even after repeated attem...

    Bright convenient light for bike commmuters

    posted by dardhal2 on 12/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    In some places traffic laws force you to place one of these tail lights on your bike from dusk to dawn. Anyways, is a sensible measure to take if you ride a bike on open roads at night (don't make night riding even more dangerous than it always is). This li...
    Cons:
    The holder is not as rigid or seems as solid as the one that came with my venerable SIGMA bike tail light (but the SIGMA one co...

    Excellent price, works with Linux

    posted by dardhal2 on 12/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I needed a BT dongle to use it on my netbook, that come without hardware BT support by default. This dongle has worked fine so far (using several versions of Ubuntu and dialects), mainly as a means of connecting to my mobile phone and using it as a GSM mode...
    Cons:
    None so far, at least none that can be blamed at the device. With several versions of Linux the dongle worked only the first ti...
