    bright!!!

    posted by despista2 on 05/19/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is BRIGHT. The spot is as bright (but bigger) than the XR-E R2 drop-in module that comes inside the single mode UltraFire WF-501B, and the spill is a bit brighter. This one does have mode memory. The mid mode is pretty low and the low mode is REALLY lo...
    Cons:
    The fast strobe mode is anything but fast. Just 4.9Hz. The SOS mode is waaaaaay too slow. The whole word lasts 21 seconds!!! Th...

    A must-have for any electrician

    posted by despista2 on 05/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small and portable. Perfect for field usage. Sturdy enough for carrying in the toolbox. Pretty accurate. Compared with a professional megger (about 15 times this price) the readings are very consistant. A time saver, this one always comes with me, the pr...
    Cons:
    The test button is push-on/push-off. I think that a momentary-on button is more safe for this kind of stuff. The earth clip is...

    Works on D5000

    posted by despista2 on 05/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well packaged, the blister is safe enough. Fits the D5000 perfectly. Seems to last close to the original one. Very inexpensive if compared with the original thing.
    Cons:
    Doesn´t come with the plastic protective cover, I have rated the build quality as 4 due to this, otherwise the build quali...

    great for store SMD

    posted by despista2 on 06/18/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Great for store SMD components getting them at your fingertips. -Big enough for dozens of DIP IC´s, maybe a little too big for resistors or capacitors, a single box could contain a couple of thousands of 1206 size resistors. -The slightly rough finish...
    Cons:
    -bigger than I exected but very useful anyway -a little dificult to open and close the lids, on other boxes you can open and cl...

    Not too bad

    posted by despista2 on 05/31/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheaper than original one. Here in Spain you should pay 59.99€ for the original one, about $92.
    Cons:
    Mine came with a loose screw inside, not very difficult to solve. It is very hard to count the characters when you are writtin...
