    Mine was reversed

    posted by flavoie on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Loud. If you have problems getting it working, maybe my comments below will help you out. Because mine did not work right out of the box.
    Cons:
    Build quality not good for my single unit, but i could fix it myself. At this price i'm not complaining. I wanted something lik...

    Xbox replacement fan

    posted by flavoie on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works as an Xbox replacement fan. The 70mm Xbox fan is 70mm, not your commonly sized fan. I tried to replace my Xbox fan which was noisy with a 80mm one, worked a little while until it cracked because i had to break it apart in the first place to bring it i...
    Cons:
    Only half as deep compared to normal PC fans. Airflow will likely be lower.

    Good for pictures on the fridge

    posted by flavoie on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I use these for pictures on the fridge. They are small enough so you don't notice them much. I would recommend using them with one-layer type things, like pictures, single pieces of paper. For bigger things on the fridge, DX has a larger one that suits well...
    Cons:
    Hard to pull apart from one another. This is the downside of being a strong magnet :)

    Great for sticking Calendar to the fridge

    posted by flavoie on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Previously used 5 magnetized clips to hold a calendar to the fridge, and it was not enough. To hold a Full-year calendar - this is quite heavy for magnets - I use 2 stacks of 2 of these magnets on top of another. I then use a single one to keep the bottom p...
    Cons:
    They are so strong it's hard to pull them apart. Well this must be a Pro...

    Great RJ45 tester, rest is bonus

    posted by flavoie on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    For once-in-a-while cable testing, this is a good tester. You can test a small cable by the integrated TX/RX unit. If you split the unit in 2, you can even test longer runs where both ends are not at the same location. I used the split units to identify RJ4...
    Cons:
    The RJ45 connectors are harder than usual to remove once your cable is stuck in. Build quality is OK, not great. Feels cheap, b...

    Windows XP: plug/unplug 3 times, then works fine

    posted by flavoie on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This card reader was tricky, but i'm really satisfied with it. It works well under Windows XP when you follow this sequence: Insert, Wait for Windows XP to install stuff. Remove. Insert (2), Wait for Windows XP to install stuff. Remove. Insert(3) - now your...
    Cons:
    Did not look like it worked at first, but eventually it did work ! (see above) A little bit harder to insert the plastic connec...

    Tested on professional equipment

    posted by flavoie on 02/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent. I tested the wrist strap at our laboratory wrist and foot strap testing station and it passed 100%. For this price, this is amazing. At work we use professional testing equipment to test if we are properly grounded before entering our labs, and t...
    Cons:
    None
