    posted by fredajb166 on 01/30/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    You get an IP cam which doesn't work quite well out of the box, but once you update the software, it's basically plug and play.
    Cons:
    There is not software or switch to turn off the IR LEDs. I had to use tape (http://www.dealextreme.com/p/electrical-pvc-insulat...

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

    Pros:
    1) The fans are powerful enough to get my laptop cooler in a measurable way. (don't remember how warm my laptop was, but it was warm enough to shut itself down. Since I used these fans, it has not happened. 2) They make almost no noise 3) They are cheap, ve...

    They could be more powerful.

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

    Nice and complete

    posted by fredajb166 on 07/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap and works really well. The accessories supplied are really useful and everything is in there to get your girlfriend/mom to cut your hair. The EU plug is nice, so no need to buy an adapter. No more excuses!
    Cons:
    The motor seams a bit weak and I am worried it will fail, but it seems to work fine so far. There aren't any other cons really

    Not so good

    posted by fredajb166 on 07/26/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    They're cheap. They arrived faster than I though. They worked fine and had actually very good sound for the price, but only in one of my ears.
    Cons:
    They don't seem to fit well in my right ear, or maybe it's because I'm not used to such earbuds or maybe they are of bad qualit...

    Very hight quality cable

    posted by fredajb166 on 07/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It seems very well built and reliable. Feels solid as well. Very cheap. Even if you can find cables for the same price elswhere, I guess it would be difficult to have the price and the quality
    Cons:
    I don't like the blue color but who cares.
