    Fixed a computer with a bad keyboard port

    posted by dmoore on 06/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I used this to replace a bad port on a PC with the mini-DIN connector. Worked like a charm and it worked right out of the "bag". Windows XP picked it and worked great.
    Cons:
    None - even if there were, its so cheap who cares? It takes 2-3 weeks to get your stuff.

    Works great - be aware that it is metric centric

    posted by dmoore on 06/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The unit is very accurate - I checked it against postal scales at the office and it was spot on. The unit is fairly sturdy. The unit also includes a tempature guage, though it only lists it in C, not F. It has Lb, Kg and some other measurements
    Cons:
    The unit starts in metric, not imperial measurement. The front face looks like a "smily face" - I'm not sure if they...

    A few problems but it is small

    posted by dmoore on 06/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Without a doubt it is small - seriously small. Small as in you will loose it small.
    Cons:
    It didn't recognize on all of my computers, worked sometimes, sometimes not (the same thing with both of them I purchased). Th...

    Worked well and as intended

    posted by dmoore on 06/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The cables seem to plug in and hold well with the right amount of tension. The cable is plyable and the color is clear, including the connectors. It also includes an RF choke to cut down on any extra RF A/C induced noise.
    Cons:
    I wish the cable had some way of "locking" onto the other USB cable it is extending. I used duct table to ensure the...

    Works as intended

    posted by dmoore on 06/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works as intended. The adjustable brightness level is nice as is the adjustable scroll rate and direction. The magnetic clip on works well and th overall weight isn't to much. Comes with a pouch to store everything.
    Cons:
    Be sure to download the driver and program from this website - don't use the included CD-ROM as it doesn't seem to work. You h...

    Worked well in my CNC cross hairs project

    posted by dmoore on 06/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I used these lasers in my cross hair (I used two of them) project on my MechMate CNC Machine. They worked well and seem to be holding up fine. At $4 it's hard to beat the price. The wires seem to be long enough also.
    Cons:
    I worry about the focusing lens coming loose or out of focus with vibration over a period of time. I guess you could use lock-...
