    Nice item, useful for more than cigs

    posted by greenmetalflake on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great styling and quality materials. Clearly made by a company that understands metal finishing and detail. No sharp edges, has good feel when touched.
    Cons:
    Price a bit high but the $$$ ain't what it was. The main issue is that the magnet catch could be stronger. Very easy to pop lid...

    Definitely Better than Most Laptop Speakers

    posted by greenmetalflake on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is a very good improvement over most built-in laptop speakers. It is ideal for travel to use when gaming, listening to music, or watching a video. Plug & Play, it automatically installs when you connect it to the USB port. Very well made, looks &...
    Cons:
    Don't have expectations that it will blow you out of the room output-wise, it won't. It plays louder and sounds fuller than the...

    Great Sunglasses But.....

    posted by greenmetalflake on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excellent GLASS lenses & optical quality. Well finished and not cheap appearing or feeling in any way. They come with a zipper case as well as cleaning cloth. Lens quality is on par with Ray-Ban aviators.
    Cons:
    They are a smaller than "normal" aviators. They don't look bad on and I doubt most would notice this but they are not...

    Fantastic Lighter

    posted by greenmetalflake on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Solidly built of high-quality materials with excellent fit & finish. A gem, there is nothing cheap appearing about it. You must manually open the valve then strike the flint wheel to fire it. As a normal, daily use lighter for a smoker that could be an ...
    Cons:
    None although I understand why some may not like the on/off valve action. You don't just take this lighter out of your pocket a...

    very Good Product & Price

    posted by greenmetalflake on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Flints are very good quality. I found little difference in spark output over other flints I normally use. They worked as expected in any oil or butane lighter I tried them in. Minor issues are noted below but none would prevent me from buying these again.
    Cons:
    Minor issues only. They possible take a bit more effort to strike the first time they are used. This could also be my imaginati...

    At this price one usually gets junk, usually.....

    posted by greenmetalflake on 05/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is an absolutely superb light. Compare it to one in the ~$20USD range. Excellent construction and quality feel, there is really nothing bad I can say about it. I purchased it based comments regarding the output. It is very bright, one of the brightest ...
    Cons:
    I wish you could pick the color, the red is actually quite nice. One light developed a flicker after a few minutes but that may...

    Great Precision Screwdriver Set

    posted by greenmetalflake on 04/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    There is really no major issue I can complain about. The tool is well made and has a useful selection of bits. Everything stores in the handle and overall weight is low. The pocket clip grips tightly on thin shirt or pants material but I had no trouble gett...
    Cons:
    Bits rattle inside handle. Might be annoying if you carry it in your pocket for long distances.

    I like it

    posted by greenmetalflake on 04/06/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Don't take my low stars as a fail on this item. It is a cheap wind-up made from cheap materials, it does not pretend to be anything else. Usefulness? Come on, it isn't useful for anything. It isn't supposed to be. What is missing from the star ratings is on...
    Cons:
    It does not go very far. It does go, just not too much.

    Great Shades!

    posted by greenmetalflake on 04/06/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These shades are good enough on their own merit that they do not need the faux-Ban "heritage". Build quality, fit, and finish is superb. A truly excellent set of sunglasses.
    Cons:
    A minor one, I did not realize they were silver mirror finish, like the Terminator's in T2. I thought they were straight green ...

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

    Pros:
    I charged up alll 4 and put 2 into immediate use in my digital camera.About q month & 250+ pics later, most with flash, they were still working. After the pair finally ran down I tried the next set. Still topped up fresh and no issues. Very nice batteries a...
    Cons:
    I bought 4, 2 for my camera and 2 for my flashlight. Unfortunately they do not fit. The outer diameter is ~1+mm too big. They'd...
