    Better than original - my kid is happy

    posted by dirtmover on 03/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought this to replace a display that cracked on my sons PSP when it got dropped. The display is perfect, well packaged and is actually better than the original which had a couple of stuck pixels from new. If you can install it yourself this provides excel...
    Cons:
    Experience and dexterity are useful installing this item as it's easily damaged along with the connectors in the PSP. Break the...

    Must have tool for opening watches

    posted by dirtmover on 12/25/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is the correct tool for opening screw on watch backs. Yes, you can often make do with needle nose pliers but this tool will remove the back without risk of damage, slipping or marring. Extremely solid, all metal construction, heavy, strong and in a way...
    Cons:
    A this price you can't really complain but it would have been nice if the tips were screw in rather than a friction fit.

    The best so far

    posted by dirtmover on 09/01/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great price and outstanding performance out of the box. The drivers are the standard Ralink package but install easily and work as expected on XP. This interface exceeds my expectations for range and signal quality based on previous experience with other wi...
    Cons:
    None really but some LED's might be a useful addition.

    Quality connectors at an amazing price

    posted by dirtmover on 03/26/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is an amazing deal on these connectors. These are real AMP connectors made by Tyco P/N 5-554720-3. At this price get a box you really can't go wrong.
    Cons:
    The downside is that these are rated as CAT-3 and not CAT-5e connectors. The thing is that there really is no discernible diffe...

    Kept my kids amused for hours!

    posted by dirtmover on 03/04/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These magnets are icredibly strong for their size. They make great fridge magnets - no more falling of the door when you brush against them - and can be easily glued. The strength is increased when sandwiched between 2 pieces of steel. They ave many other u...
    Cons:
    You must be careful with these as they are quite brittle and chip and break easily so don't let them slam together. The coating...

    Not the average DIY repair

    posted by dirtmover on 03/01/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great price for these buttons in small quantities - normally you need to buy these in larger quantity. Direct replacement for the OEM part.
    Cons:
    Very small and vey fiddly to install. Don't sneeze or you'll probably loose them.

    A must have for anyone installing coax

    posted by dirtmover on 03/01/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This stripper is the most useful tool if you are installing many coax connectors. Cheap and very easy to use. It takes seconds to prepare your cable for termination.
    Cons:
    I dropped a mark on ease of use because to be honest it is a bit fiddly to adjust. If you are working with multiple types of ca...

    Pros:
    Great price for a single use screwdriver. It gets the job done.

    Great item - very useful

    posted by dirtmover on 02/08/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nicely built and very affordable I keep this remote in my camera bag at all times and have used it extensivley. The remote is extremely solid and feels as though it could take considerable abuse. Works great as described on my Canon XT.
    Cons:
    I have not experienced any down side with this item. Given the small number of buttons it has to support it could have been a t...
