    very handy

    posted by darranshortt on 02/13/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very very cheap compared to the real gorilla pod. It works great and is really handy for those awkward camera shots, I have used mine a lot indoors. Wrapping around handles and the like. I've used it up mountains too to get a good purchase on a rock and as ...
    Cons:
    You may need to "break" the little plastic connectors before using it the first time. Maybe a carry over from the moulding proc...

    not bad

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

    Pros:
    Its pretty quiet. All my fans are around 17dB and adding this in didn't make much of a difference in noise level. I even had my bro hook it up to an external power source and power it on and off to see what the difference is and it was negligible.
    Cons:
    None really. maybe a mobo fan header adapter would be nice. Some rubber grommets would be nice too but that would only push the...

    Little tricky but good

    posted by darranshortt on 02/11/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Holding its own fuel is good. The wick is pretty absorbant and the striker does a good job of producing a spark.
    Cons:
    you need to leave the fuel soak in for a few minutes. Otherwise it won't catch flame. The o ring isn't the best and they can be...

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

    Pros:
    Very easy to use and the instructions were pretty clear. The led indicators is a nice touch and it is a good battery to use for day to day play also. It will work on a slim too, just need to leave the battery cover off.
    Cons:
    None that i can think of.

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

    Pros:
    This is a really good compass for the price. Works like any other standard compass Large baseplate which is a personal preference Easy to read off the bearing
    Cons:
    Some of them can be off by a bit on the housing but this can be compensated by quite easily. I wouldn't like to rely on it for ...
