    Useful PIR sensor, with adjustable pot

    posted by ed2096 on 01/31/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Has an adjustable pot unlike many other products, able to adjust off delay time. Very useful. Otherwise simple and easy to wire up.
    Cons:
    Would be nice to see connector on both ends of PIR sensor, instead it's hardwired to board. PIR board is much larger than othe...

    No brainer multi pack

    posted by ed2096 on 01/31/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Standard shrink tubing, blow dry or heat gun to seal. Quality 3M product, seals nicely, high quality material. Convenient multipack of various sizing, looks better and lasts longer than electrical tape Price makes this a no brainer
    Cons:
    If you're looking for a single size, could be annoying. Otherwise, useful to have various sizes for various projects

    Useful, as advertised

    posted by ed2096 on 12/03/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Back part of strip is 3M adhesive!! BONUS! Not cool white Shorter than usual strips (3m vs 5m) Useful for small applications Cuttable every 3 LEDs (look at strip markings) Waterproof layer seems well done
    Cons:
    Seems cooler than 3000-3500k, definitely less than 7000k cool white, maybe around 4500-5000k Waterproofing makes it more diffi...

    Decent, no issues yet

    posted by ed2096 on 12/03/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good small decent adapter Close to 12V (measured around 12.7V) Closer to 12V under load (1.5A) Separate AC cord, a bonus if you want to strip it down and direct wire
    Cons:
    Slight voltage variation, not really an issue Wish the AC cord was longer

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

    Pros:
    Easy to use, straightforward to use. Caught an accidental mis-wiring in 110 panel, without this, I could have potentially spent hours figuring out what was wrong. Comes with convenient caring pouch Cheaper than pro meter, still does a decent job given th...

    Use it everyday

    posted by ed2096 on 12/03/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Large size vs others, makes it easier to prepare many cups of tea Easy to use and clean, all parts easily come out and back in again, very little parts to break Does not over-steep the tea (which is bad)
    Cons:
    Upper chamber still quite small (needs 2 runs to fill my cup) Button can be dislodged easily, luckily it's easily fixed
