    sufficient power to support an external hard drive, useful light indicators

    posted by eltonw on 12/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It has an indicator light for each usb port. Comes supplied with its own lighted power supply and USB connection cables. Light in weight, and has slots on the rear for wall mounting, but it is sufficiently compact that it can be placed on a desk. It has su...
    Cons:
    The usb connector doesn't fit tightly into the computer port, so one has to be quite careful when plugging in or removing anyth...

    Thick, solid, keeps phone clean, and free from glare

    posted by eltonw on 12/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The material is thick enough that you are aware of it being on the phone. Effectively stops glare, and (apparently) prevents others from seeing what is on your screen (when the phone is at an angle). Easy to apply, or remove. Provides some (slight) protec...
    Cons:
    None really. But it is of primordial importance that the surface of the phone be clean of the tiniest specks of dust before app...

    sturdy, good value for the price

    posted by eltonw on 12/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The velcro fastener is much more reliable than that of a similar product (different manufacturer) that I purchased last year. The case is ample, and large enough to entirely contain my Sony Xperia while the phone is *still*in it's protective hard case, and...
    Cons:
    Perhaps a manufacturing error, but the pass-through holes for the headset cable are on the RIGHT side of the REAR of the case (...

    solid build for the price, extremely sensitive microphone

    posted by eltonw on 12/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    For the price this is 'good value'. Rather than a separate lapel clip, it is built onto the microphone, so there's no chance of losing the clip. The sound is excellent (solid bass) for such a cheap product. You can skip tunes if you rapidly click the microp...
    Cons:
    The phone plug is straight, rather than angled, so more risk of getting it damaged, and it can be tricky if you are placing you...

    Nicely designed, especially the phone plug

    posted by eltonw on 03/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The earbuds fit *inside* the ear, effectively blocking out most external noise, while still allowing the user to be aware of his surroundings. Having an angled phone plug, rather than the more common 'straight' plug means less risk of damaging the cable at...
    Cons:
    Though the manufacture indicates that it goes as low as 13 Hz (compared to the standard 20 Hz), I find that the bass output is ...

    Good and reliable product for the price

    posted by eltonw on 03/27/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is similar to the Geyes 800/1600CPI Bluetooth Optical Mouse (which also uses a single "AA" battery) SKU: 50292. Except that this is a white (translucent) mouse, which is an advantage, since (unlike the black one) it allows you to see the flas...
    Cons:
    What is the purpose for the extra oblong button on the top of the mouse body? it might be to adjust DPI, but there is no inform...

    Really compact, and easy to pair

    posted by eltonw on 03/03/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a true bluetooth, so *no dongle*! One single (AAA) battery, rather than two batteries. Light weight, and very compact. Really handy to take with one's laptop or netbook. Works with LINUX ubuntu and OSX.
    Cons:
    No indication of weakening battery, but if the pointer starts getting jittery on screen, it is usually time to change the batte...

    should / could include a power supply

    posted by eltonw on 03/03/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Sufficiently powerful to charge a phone while using USB sticks. The red indicator light is a good selling point. Clip on body means that it can be attached to a desk leg, and be out of the way.
    Cons:
    Does not have any indication of what is the proper power source to use, even though it does have a connector port for external ...

    good quality for the price

    posted by eltonw on 03/03/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits inside ear, so i effect it is 'noise cancelling'. Good quality bass sound. Solid wire.
    Cons:
    Lapel clip can be easily lost, so I wound a small piece of fine wire to prevent this. Straight, rather than L=-shaped plug, mea...

    good value for price works with *ALL* OSes!

    posted by eltonw on 05/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The mouse works with all Operating Systems. The material is solidly built, and it feels light in the hand. Tested on two different machines, two different OSes (NOT Windows). Buttons and scroll wheel function reliably in both cases.
    Cons:
    The battery compartment is a bit snug, but not too tight. To remove the batteries, you simply have to tap the opened mouse on a...
