    Excellent DIY LED driver

    posted by eboyer on 10/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Great price (especially the bulk rate) - High quality current output: I've used over a dozen of these drivers and they all provide a very constant current, and thus flicker-less LED lighting - Can be dimmed. The integrated circuit for this LED driver is t...
    Cons:
    - The maximum input voltage is NOT 40V, as is stated in the product title. The PT4115 IC can only handle a maximum of 30V, and ...

    Great general purpose heatsink

    posted by eboyer on 10/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Excellent build quality - The back of the heatsink has a built-in adhesive, which makes it easy to mount to just about anything - Aesthetically attractive - Can be used for a wide variety of uses (it can be used for a lot more than just computer memory ch...
    Cons:
    - The built-in adhesive isn't extremely strong, so the heatsink can only really be placed once. If it is removed then the adhes...

    Excellent value

    posted by eboyer on 10/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Amazing value: you get 5 batteries for about half the price of 1 at most stores - No dead batteries in my pack. I quickly tested all 5 batteries and found that they all have the correct voltage, indicating that they should work well. - The one battery tha...
    Cons:

    Horrible Build Quality, but Decent Light

    posted by eboyer on 09/16/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    When it actually works it produces fairly good light. The beam is decently focused and the colour is a nice white with a hint of blue. The light output is alright. It would be ok for lighting up a path about 15 feet in front of you, but not much more becaus...
    Cons:
    Build quality is horrible. Mine didn't work out of the box: the solder between the electronics and flashlight body was broken. ...

    Very Good Flashlight

    posted by eboyer on 04/30/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Extremely bright for its size - Brighter than most large incandescent lanterns - Very good throw in the center beam. It lights things up to about 50-100 feet away - Very usable light levels outside of the center beam - Very small (you could fit 5 of t...
    Cons:
    - Would be nice to have a medium mode because high and low modes are very different - Strobe mode hurts the eyes and could cau...

    It Works, but Not Very Well

    posted by eboyer on 04/30/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Extremely cheap sound card that works with many operating systems - Powered by USB, so no power cable - Has line in - Loud - Sound quality is usable
    Cons:
    - Very poor sound quality (I am an experienced audiophile, so I have a very good idea of what “good sound” means). There’s not ...
