    Nice looking switch

    posted by glenalec on 02/26/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Nice little push-on/push-off (non momentary) switch. Indicator lamp has separate leads to switch, so can be independently controlled.
    Cons:
    Probably don't try to put 24V across the LED, it appears to be a 12V lamp (which is a pro if you have a 12v circuit). The 24V r...

    The (unintentionally) Evil Koala

    posted by glenalec on 05/30/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small and somewhat cute when inactive. The button on top is easy to activate. You can remove the keychain to make it a desk ornament.
    Cons:
    The eyes! The eyes! They glow brighter than the sun! Seriously - don't look strait into them for too long!

    Surprisingiy good effect

    posted by glenalec on 05/20/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The colour effect is surprisingly good given a dark enough room. The prism ball is removable for more direct/higher contrast lighting patterns. Some of the selectable light patterns are very nice. Auto-shut down after an hour.
    Cons:
    Patterns get a little repetitive if you are just staring at them for several minutes. The prism-ball blurs/mutes the patterns a...

    Celebration-neutral party lights

    posted by glenalec on 04/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Celebration-neutral. Very bright and colourful.
    Cons:
    The solar doesn't stand up to providing much power for very long - an hour or so after a day in bright sunlight (swapping out t...

    My youngest niece loved it (her father didn't - mission accomplished)

    posted by glenalec on 04/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Plays a selection of songs. Easy to pretend to play. Sounds terrible like a plastic electronic toy violin should. Its pink!
    Cons:
    Its pink! (Yes, I know that was also a pro.)

    Sounds terrible (which is great!)

    posted by glenalec on 04/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Stand is great. Plays a small selection of tunes. Easy to use, including pretending to play convincingly. Sounds really really terrible (just like a plastic toy violin should). Has a nice plastic-wood look.
    Cons:
    Doesn't include the tune "My Heart Bleeds for Thee" which would increase its usefulness by two orders of magnitude.

    Great looking LED watch

    posted by glenalec on 04/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Really interesting looking - people often don't realise it is a watch until I show them how it works and are impressed by how the LEDs blend in to the shape when not in use. Setting time/date/12-24hr is relatively easy once you work it out. This model is a ...
    Cons:
    Like all LED watches, difficult to read in daylight and can't display continuously, so just glancing at the watch won't tell yo...

    Useful beauty device

    posted by glenalec on 04/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I used to just use a sewing needle and a bent hairpin for this but this device is, at the price, a good made-for-purpose alternative to such options. Having the needle and loop at opposite ends of a long handle makes it easier to store/find in my toiletries...
    Cons:
    None - simple device, can't really go wrong.

    Innovatively simple design

    posted by glenalec on 04/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very simple design, yet very effective. Provides properly modest coverage and unlikely to open gap as the front is double-covered due to the way it wraps.
    Cons:
    Toweling is a bit on the thin side.
