    Last choice for weak GSM signal

    posted by georgistz on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Simply works. Installed the antennas, connected the cable, turned it on and - a miracle happened - full strength signal with stable connection even in bad weather. Stays slightly warm under constant use. Haven't turned it of for almost a year now.
    Cons:
    The price is high but I guess it's worth it.

    Great if you don't have a built-in WiFi

    posted by georgistz on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Drivers install without a hitch, the connection is stable, although a bit weak, the speed is very nice and the device stays cool. Works now for a few months already without any problems at all. The price is good.
    Cons:
    The signal strength is a bit weak but I didn't expect any better from a USB WiFi adapter.

    Great for wathing films

    posted by georgistz on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works perfectly, just plug in a free USB port and it is ready - no driver required on Linux or WinXP and later. Install itself as a HID keyboard and works with Winamp, Media Player Classic and almost any other multimedia program. The keycodes sent are just ...
    Cons:
    The price is a bit high. The receiving angle is very narrow so you have to point the remote control directly at the receiver.

    Works as well as a normal COM port

    posted by georgistz on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works excellent with industrial equipment, which requires RS-232 interface. The included drivers installed and worked with no problem at all. Connection is stable and works just as a normal built-in COM port.
    Cons:
    Looks ugly but it works. Also the build quality is not the best, but the converter itself does not brake. The included extensio...

    Worth the price

    posted by georgistz on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very strong light and with the ability to control the focus (or if you unscrew the reflector it works as a lantern). Can be used as a bike light or to light your way in dark places while working. The battery pouch feels flimsy but even after dropping it a f...
    Cons:
    Drains the batteries quickly but this is the trade-off for such strong light.

    2 new COM ports just as good as the built-in

    posted by georgistz on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works great with industrial equipment which still requires RS-232 interface. The price is not too high and the build quality is good. Included drivers work with no problem with WinXP. The two new ports come up as normal COM ports and work as good as the bui...
    Cons:
    None really.

    Very small USB charger

    posted by georgistz on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well, it works. It is very small and great replacement for the OEM charger that came with my phone. I can put it together with the USB cable in the ash tray and it fits. Looks and feels nice and durable enough. Very low standby current so it shouldn't disch...
    Cons:
    Does not stay very firmly in the cigarette lighter socket - if you move the cable sometimes it looses connection with the light...

    Great product

    posted by georgistz on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought it for use as a portable money detector and it works great as such. Every detail that should be visible, glows nicely. Feels very well built and durable. The price is low enough to not think twice about buying it. The light is from LEDs so it shouldn...
    Cons:
    While it does produce UV light, there is a lot of visible blue light as well.

    Just what I was looking for

    posted by georgistz on 11/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Quite accurate (difference of +/- 1 degree C), works well even from moderate distance, easy and comfortable to use, laser sight is especially useful, very cheap (less than half the price of similar thermometers in my country). Display is easily readable, pl...
    Cons:
    Shuts down automatically, no manual off switch.

    Excellent gadget for phone and laptop use

    posted by georgistz on 02/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small and light, good battery life. Nice logging feature, works even if not connected to a phone or anything - just has to be in the "on" position. Quick cold start and reacquisition - just a few second after turning it on and has s position lock....
    Cons:
    Charger port is not Micro-USB (as with any newer phone), so to charge it, you have to carry its cable (which plugs in any USB c...
