    posted by ehabkost on 02/07/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Small - You can easily disassemble it to extract the reader from inside, and have a very tiny MicroSD reader (I discovered that after it stopped working)
    Cons:
    - The card slot cover opens very easily and it's very fragile, so you risk breaking it by just having it attached to your keych...

    Pros:
    - Great price. - Very fun to play with. - Uses standard size batteries. - The LED is very useful. I can even use the microscope in the dark. - WIth the scale markings, you can even measure the stuff you are seeing. I don't expect it to be too accurate, howe...

    - It looks very easy to break it. I wouldn't expect it to survive too long if I hand it to a kid. - The battery compartment is ...

    A bit fragile, but strong

    posted by ehabkost on 01/04/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - They are strong. - They are quite thin: just 1 milimeter. This can be an advantage or a problem, depending on your needs. - They're fun to play with! - You get a lot of them by a small price.
    Cons:
    - It is very easy to break them while playing with them. From the 100-pack I've bought, I think I broke 8 of them in the first ...

    Great for its price

    posted by ehabkost on 01/04/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Small and light. - Bright led, considering its size. - The clip is reasonably large and reasonably strong, so you probably won't have problems of it not staying in the place you clipped it on. - Very focused light so you can read on your bed at night with...
    Cons:
    - I would like it to be brighter so I could comfortably read on bed, but I think I was expecting too much for something this si...

    Small and effective

    posted by ehabkost on 11/17/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Slim, and beatiful color (I've got a black one) - Comes with power supply - Shape is great. The hub and the connectors are all on the same plane, about 1 centimeter thin. It makes it easy to hide it under something else so it doesn't take too much space o...
    Cons:
    - When I've connected a second hub (without power supply) to it, the cursor of the mouse (that was connected to this hub, not t...
