    Great module!

    posted by dontasker on 03/14/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great module! Not a pointer. Good for bench top setups or for larger devices that require a powerful green laser.
    Cons:
    Barrel shape. pushbutton as aposed to a switch or bare contacts... but the button is easy to solder to.

    surpassing expectations.

    posted by dontasker on 03/27/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    very powerful. I had it set up inside a house, by a window. I traveled about 150 feet before I got any bars on my cellphone and even then it wouldn't place calls. Even at the lowest setting it would block cellphone through out the house. It draws 5v DC at 5...
    Cons:
    Gets hot rather quickly and the IR port is slightly misaligned.

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

    Pros:
    works right out of the box (unless you need an US adapter, which I happened to have). Great web interface. Very simple. Admin can create user accounts with varying degrees of privileges.
    Cons:
    No scheduler for bittorrent client. Non-US power supply. Some things got a little lost in translation, but it's not hard to fig...

    Pros:
    fairly good video/audio. Looks like a standard office pen. No one has noticed it yet :D
    Cons:
    Your speech (the user) tends to be buzzy and overdriven, but you can still understand it. I wish there was a way to have a swit...

    it works

    posted by dontasker on 01/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Much cheaper than any others I've found and it works. Please make informative reviews, reviews under 500 characters (all fields combined) will not be accepted. All fields aded together, your review does not contain more than 500 characters.
    Cons:
    The part that plugs into the controller leaves a gap on the bottom, so you might knock the cable off. No biggy

    Wow, that's cheap

    posted by dontasker on 01/14/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very very very cheap. solid red dot. The cheapest laser I could get were about $4.50 and were crap compaired to these. Wires are soldered on. runs on 3vDC. very simple. no extra driver needed
    Cons:
    beam does expand over relative short distances, but if you need to do the... buy something nicer. Might be a little tough to so...

    MY EYES!!!

    posted by dontasker on 07/15/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very very very bright. I melted a line in my plastic stapler already. easy to operate. has a switch rather than a button which is a major plus.
    Cons:
    focusing is a bit tricky. there's one lens just above the diode, and another over that. You have to adjust the bottom one first...

    Haha! Take this smoking ban!

    posted by dontasker on 06/25/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great realistic smoker. Tastes good, no real smell, generates a "healthy" amount of "smoke" Fits in your pocket. Included battery carger seems to work good and fast.
    Cons:
    Some of the refills don't screw in as snuge as I'd like. You do have to give it a pretty hard tork to get enough "smoke&qu...

    GREAT

    posted by dontasker on 06/24/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very nice. Generates a lot of very hot sparks. "Handle" is secure, no fear of the flint falling out. I also found that if you lightly, or slowly scrap it you can build up some very volitle dust. Shoot a spark into the dust and you get a lot of heat.
    Cons:
    The metal scraper has paint on most of it, so you can only use sertain areas of it.

    Very good deal

    posted by dontasker on 06/16/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very well built (except for the button). Very very nice design. Very bright and remains focused and coherent. I have almost no fear of the diode burning out because this this has a ton of metal to dissipates the energy.
    Cons:
    The button can become miss aligned cause temporary and rare outages. And I should have bought the 100mW, although I'm somewhat ...
