    Good Elapor-like Foam, bulletproof glider

    posted by dghutt on 09/04/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The foam in particular is very good quality, similar to Elapor and other EPS foams that can't easily be dented, broken or permanently deformed. The plane as a whole seems to work pretty well, gliding nicely. I'm hopeful I can eventually turn it into a mic...
    Cons:
    The vinyl decals are heavy and do not seem to stick very well. The packaging was thoroughly crushed and destroyed in transit b...

    HUGE, makes an impression

    posted by dghutt on 05/22/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This watch is massive and certainly makes an impression. Weighs a ton, like having a grandfather clock on my wrist. I keep expecting it to gong. To me these are positive attributes in a once-in-a-while fun watch. The face script is clear and clean and t...
    Cons:
    Some people would not want a watch this massive as their daily-driver. The fake subdials and buttons are unnecessary and take ...

    Works, but tricky

    posted by dghutt on 04/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works; permits easy adjustment of sensitivity and intensity, generally self-contained, comes with battery, looks to be watertight or at least water resistant
    Cons:
    Uses a specialty battery that is not widely available; tough to find the right intensity and sensitivity settings; very poor in...

    Reasonable quality, glass lens

    posted by dghutt on 02/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - nice weight - real glass lenses unlikely to scuff like polycarbonate - wide-fitting, definitely men's glasses - straight arms, clean design - very light mirroring but not enough to seem creepy - comes with serious, zippered nylon case and microfibre lens ...
    Cons:
    - wish the arm hinges were sprung for over-extension - case is huge, too big to fit discretely in a coat pocket

    Fantastic, easy-to-set-up device

    posted by dghutt on 01/19/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - completely plug-and-play, worked straight out of the box with no fuss, no difficult instructions - clear LEDs indicate activity - on arrival it's smaller than I imagined it would be - sound quality over bluetooth is also far better than I expected and jus...
    Cons:
    - so far none.

    Good headlamp once repaired

    posted by dghutt on 01/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - the white LED is brighter than I expected (although not as bright as the Cree alternatives here) - the strap seems secure, although it is only a hatband-style and does not have an 'over-the-top' strap - I like that nothing projects from the front of the u...
    Cons:
    - Quality control: on mine the red LED did not work on arrival. On disassembly the negative lead was not soldered. Once I sol...

    Useful device, worth the price

    posted by dghutt on 01/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Easy to refill the butane - comes with both an iron and torch extension - heats quickly, melting solder within a minute - solder tips are replaceable - easy to clean tip - in lieu of multilanguage instructions the packaging contains clear graphics explain...
    Cons:
    - iron tip is replaceable and will need replacing, but it's not clear where to find replacements - no case to keep the alternat...

    Excellent quality device, a cut above

    posted by dghutt on 01/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - higher quality fit and finish than expected at this pricepoint, even from DX - extends from about 18 inches to about 66 inches long - extension latches are secure and do not slip or pop open - comes with nice quality nylon bag - high quality foam grip at ...
    Cons:
    - spirit level itself is not glued into the device straight and level, making it virtually useless - some sharp parting lines o...

    Fantastic little lantern

    posted by dghutt on 11/09/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Cree LED bulb means a lot of light per watt - uses standard AA batteries so replacements are easy to get - easily lights a small tent - has a hanger for ... hanging.
    Cons:
    - the hanger clip is small, flimsy and plastic, hard to get on and off the lantern, but you need to take it off to have it sit ...

    Good paracord, but not contiguous

    posted by dghutt on 11/09/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - seems like excellent, stock quality paracord - seven internal strands nicely separated from outer shell
    Cons:
    - was surprised to find my 30m coil was not one continuous piece of rope: there are at least two melted welds. This obviously ...
