    Good fitment. No complaints

    posted by desolder on 03/04/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It fits my S4 mini perfectly. The cutouts were all in the right locations. This came with 5 screen protectors, so if you screw up 1, you have 4 more chances to get it right! It sticks well to the phone, but like all screen protectors it can lift up at the e...
    Cons:
    This is not really a con but more of a rant - getting a bubble free installation can be very difficult. I needed to do this out...

    Very useful bike pump mount, but missing velcro strap.

    posted by desolder on 02/25/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I needed an extra pump mount for my bike pump, so I didn't have to buy two pumps. This fit my bike pump perfectly. In fact, it looks exactly like the existing pump mount.
    Cons:
    It didn't come with a velcro strap. No big deal, since you can buy extra straps from DX (sku 200630). Without the strap, the bi...

    An "incredible bell" at an incredible price.

    posted by desolder on 12/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is almost an exact copy of a certain double ring incredible bell, but for 1/3 the price. The original is my favorite bell. This one emits practically the same distinctive, loud, clear, high pitched brassy double ring. When I ring it, people on the tra...
    Cons:
    The hammer is not quite as consistent as the original. I need to pull the lever faster in order to get a consistent double ring...

    Convenient and small dogbone wrench

    posted by desolder on 12/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have a portable bike toolkit which lacks hex wrenches for the smaller sizes (spin doctor essentials kit), so this was a perfect complement to the kit. It was small enough to fit in the existing toolkit. It handles 6 to 15mm hex, which should cover nearly...
    Cons:
    The small size is also a con. You won't be able to apply much torque. For the smaller sizes this is not a problem. But for 14mm...

    ORANGE CRUSH

    posted by desolder on 12/01/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    My birds chewed through my older thin wire micro USB cable so I figured I needed to step up to something more robust. This one looked like it used a thicker cable, so I ordered it. Sure enough, it's a nice thick cable. Hopefully my birds won't chew through ...
    Cons:
    There was a bit of rust on the micro-usb connector. That was really odd. Did it get sprayed with salt water on the slow boat fr...

    Works great with Motorola Atrix 2

    posted by desolder on 12/01/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It just works, what more can be said? I'm using it with a Motorola Atrix 2, and it was simplicity itself to use. I have only tested it up to 720p. I guess that's the limit of the Atirx 2??? The cable and connectors are of pretty good quality. The cable is...
    Cons:
    It would be nice if it was a teeny bit longer. 200mm would be perfect. But I can't complain about that.

    One of the few FM transmitters that uses an Apple connector.

    posted by desolder on 10/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    My car stereo has neither bluetooth or an aux jack, so an FM transmitter is the only way I could interface my iPhone to my car stereo. This works very well for that purpose. The LED is large and well lit so it is easy to read even at night while driving. ...
    Cons:
    It's FM, so the audio won't be CD quality and it will occasionally be subject to interference. I had to trim the plastic sligh...

    Improved, thicker insulation.

    posted by desolder on 10/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I was pleasantly surprised with this splitter cable. I actually bought this to repair/replace two Magicshine battery cables which frayed and broke. Since it's a splitter, it comes with two female ends, so I only needed to buy one of these instead of two of ...
    Cons:
    None.

    Scare the bejezus out of people

    posted by desolder on 09/11/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a huge solar spider. It's big and scary enough to freak people out at first glance. Its great for playing jokes on people. The legs don't actually move like a real spider. The whole thing just shakes. Still, it's enough to give it some movement and...
    Cons:
    The plastic legs aren't very strong. I've dropped it a few times and the legs broke off. You can glue them back on, but the glu...

    Good replacements for bike mounts

    posted by desolder on 08/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought these as replacement straps for the rubber block bike mounts, sku.12000 and sku.31871. They work just like the original black straps, and add a bit of color. They also work great with the bike pump holder, sku.102198. This holder oddly doesn't com...
    Cons:
    None. They work perfectly.
