    Mixed experience

    posted by eoghanc on 10/30/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well, I bought this to breathe some life into an old 6300 and once I got it to fit into the sim slot it worked perfectly...
    Cons:
    ...until I updated the firmware. D'oh! Big mistake. It stopped working. Obviously nokia noticed there was a way to defeat the b...

    Great fun and cheap too

    posted by eoghanc on 10/30/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great fun for young and old alike! These magnets are strong but unlike the flat magnets, their round shape makes them resistant to cracking due to sudden impact. The price is wonderful, they cost maybe 5x to buy the exact same thing locally (ok, not the exa...
    Cons:
    Very strong magnets. Pose a serious danger if swallowed, so do not give to very young children.

    Decent camera

    posted by eoghanc on 01/26/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap price, would cost 40euro here. Seems water proof but I haven't tested. LEDs adjust automatically thanks to a photosensor on the pcb. Night vision works really well, although it is strange to see things in IR spectrum.
    Cons:
    Some colours are over-saturated. Quite chunky for what's in it. The LEDs glow faintly red so not great for hidden security cam ...

    Nice lenses

    posted by eoghanc on 01/26/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The lens are pretty good, free from major defects and live up to their descriptions. You get 6 of them although only two or three will likely be of interest to most people.
    Cons:
    Very easy to touch the lens accidentally. Very difficult to get the finger grease off once you have touched it.

    Self-explanatory

    posted by eoghanc on 08/31/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Reasonably robust. Will probably never break no matter how often you drop it or throw it against a wall, if you wish to do so. Does exactly what it is supposed to.
    Cons:
    Very big for what it is, a lot of cheap unnecessary plastic in the middle. Ugly colour. Compared to some other items on DX, thi...

    Fun but silly

    posted by eoghanc on 08/27/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Looks nice, light is well diffused. Looks better than a much more expensive brick-style light I got many years ago. Small. Cheap.
    Cons:
    Mine doesn't stay green for very long. This new model does not have any different modes, just colour cycle. Plastic feels a bit...

    Cheap but good

    posted by eoghanc on 08/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The same price as a standard electronic lighter except 10,000 times cooler. Why light candles with a lazy, licking flame when you can ignite them with blazing jet power! Sorry, I'm easily amused. And for less than $3, you will be too.
    Cons:
    A little plasticky. Apart from looking cool and creating a steady flame, it is somewhat pointless.

    Handy for the SD card owner

    posted by eoghanc on 08/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Plays mp3's from my SD cards. Small. Solid. Rechargeable battery built-in. Sounds really good. Can function as a SD card reader (Mini SD and Micro SD with adaptors) on your PC.
    Cons:
    I can never tell if the thing is charged and as a result it often cuts out at the worst time possible. Plug it in while it's pl...

    Trendy and not too bad technically either

    posted by eoghanc on 08/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    So cheap. Look like the real thing. I use these with my imitation shuffle SD card player and have to explain to people who insist to ME that it is real! Good sound quality out of them.
    Cons:
    The rubber part is not very comfortable. Tends to pop out of my ears a bit if moving around.
