    Great EDC or bike light

    posted by formicae on 10/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Three modes, which is plenty. High is quite bright on an AA, mid is not that much dimmer, but likely stretches the battery life quite a bit, and the strobe is perfect for urban biking at night (mount using sku.31871). Personally, I LIKE the green glow-in-th...
    Cons:
    The mid isn't vastly dimmer than the high mode, but it uses pulse width modulation, which is a more thermally-efficient solutio...

    Fast, cheap, and (so far) reliable!

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

    Pros:
    2gb of storage on a card that's smaller than a fingernail. Great for phones, but I use this one for my DSTT card (sku 15613) and it works perfectly. I've been writing files to it at 5-6MB/sec which is pretty good.
    Cons:
    What kind of drawback can you find to a 2gb TF card at $7? Especially if it's actually a Japan-made Kingston card.

    Incredibly cheap, especially considering it works.

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

    Pros:
    I was amazed at how easy the card was to set up and use. I actually LIKE that there is no firmware to flash (the kernel lives on your MicroSD card), as I've had trouble with firmware flashes on other backup carts for other consoles/handhelds in the past. I ...
    Cons:
    The retention mechanism (spring+thorn) for the TF card doesn't feel incredibly durable, but should last a long time if you're g...

    Much nicer than expected!

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

    Pros:
    · Contrasting white piping, not shown in the DX product pictures. · Made of memory foam covered in tight-knit fabric · Inside is bright red, looks good. · Zippers are smooth, pulls feel solid · MUCH nicer than the one provided by Asus
    Cons:
    The only one I can think of is that I didn't order more of these. At six bucks, they're a great bargain.

    Beautiful, but I wouldn't leave them unattended.

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

    Pros:
    The net is quite large, allowing you to stretch it out across a window. Only a couple of the patterns are blinky/annoying. Several of them have nice twinkle/fade effects. There's a button on the power box to change patterns. The LEDs give off a nice, ...
    Cons:
    Some of the resistors aren't sheathed in plastic properly and get *very* hot. Possibly hot enough to melt shades/curtains that ...

    Incredible value, works perfectly.

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

    Pros:
    I took it apart to see what kind of flash RAM was inside, and was surprised to find a Hynix NAND chip on the well-manufactured board. This inspires some confidence in me that the card should perform well for the foreseeable future.
    Cons:
    None whatever so far. Card is well-built and is performing beautifully.

    Incredible value, take them anywhere.

    Pros:
    - Stainless, easy to keep clean - Completely portable - No sulfur dioxide, unlike the disposable bamboo chopsticks you get at restaurants or take-aways. - Fewer wasted resources
    Cons:
    - Threads are a bit rough at first, but after a few uses they are smoother. Just be careful not to screw them together crooked...

    Good-looking and useful light.

    posted by formicae on 10/04/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Glass lens and aluminium reflector in a light this cheap is great, and gives a very useful beam. The tail switch clicks positively and isn't very hard to press. Fit and finish are surprisingly nice for a light in this price range; the natural anodizing lo...
    Cons:
    None so far, other than the threads needing a bit of cleaning. Wrist strap is kind of useless, but I don't use them anyway.
