    Excellent kit for electronics work

    posted by gdion32 on 03/31/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    So far, I've found these to be of excellent quality. I build circuit boards with surface mount components and using tweezers like these are a real necessity. The handles have a nice coating, which I believe to be anti-static. Whether it is or isn't, it d...
    Cons:
    No cons at all. They are good tweezers.

    Perfect for soldering SMT parts

    posted by gdion32 on 03/31/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    So far, I've found these to be of very good quality. I build circuit boards with surface mount components and using tweezers like these are a real necessity.
    Cons:
    Nothing. It's hard to screw up tweezers. Oh, there is a con, and that is that I have to say more in order to reach the 500 wo...

    Not thrilled, but they are ok.

    posted by gdion32 on 03/31/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    They are built pretty well. I like the styling and forsee them lasting a long time given that I'm not too hard on my stuff. I will use them mainly for taking walks.
    Cons:
    The sound is like listening to speakers at the end of hollow tubes. I really had higher expectations for these buds given some...

    Very nice speaker-mic

    posted by gdion32 on 08/30/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It appeals to me as a very well-built device. The cable, jacks, and strain reliefs are solidly constructed. Very positive "snap" to the PTT button, so you'll know when you're transmitting.
    Cons:
    None at all. If I really had to pick something to nit over, it would be the plastic clip on the back. It's not flimsy - just ...

    Terrific!

    posted by gdion32 on 03/21/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This strip is very bright. When all LEDs are on, the light diffuses into a nice white light, and the current draw is 200mA. Individually, the colours are very good, though the green is just a tad washed out. While it's not obvious from the photos, the st...
    Cons:
    The only con I can think of is that I didn't expect it to be potted/sealed. I imagine this won't be a negative at all for most...

    Good meter, but I wish I could read Chinese

    posted by gdion32 on 11/25/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The leads store in the case and the cover protects the display when closed. I found the accuracy to be better than the previous reviewer. The auto off function will help with battery longevity and the use of common AAA batteries is a plus.
    Cons:
    The instructions are in Chinese, which is ok since I know how to use a multimeter. HOWEVER, there looks to be an addendum to t...

    Works great!

    posted by gdion32 on 11/11/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is the most inexpensive USB to serial device I've found anywhere, and it performs quite well. It not only works in Windows XP, but in Linux as well.
    Cons:
    The only reason I rated "build quality" a 4 is because the thumb screws fall out of the connector, making them easy t...

    Works as intended

    posted by gdion32 on 06/07/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    VERY bright. Gets just slightly warm. Comes with serveral bulb adapters. Includes sticky foam adhesive for installation.
    Cons:
    Didn't include the adapter for my particular bulb, so I had to solder the wires in.
