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

    Pros:
    - The number of rings. Unlike a previous reviewer, I love the flexibility afforded by them. You can use them on their own, or in combination. Very handy if you're using a prime lens. - The build quality is quite a bit better than comparably priced eBay s...
    Cons:
    - The rings weren't finished properly. Mine came with metal burrs that weren't polished off. If you're using the cheaper plas...

    Amazing build quality

    posted by helius1 on 07/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Amazing build quality! If it had a different brand name and other text printed on it, you'd probably find your local camera store charging over 5 times the price for it. - The included battery is great, especially since most electronics have the dreaded ...
    Cons:
    - None

    Very handy

    posted by helius1 on 07/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Four USB ports AND an additional power charger port. - It's the same size as the regular-sized single-USB-port charger that sells for far more in local stores. - The phone adapters provided. I've only used the SonyEricsson and mini-USB plugs, but they wo...
    Cons:
    - The high-pitched noise when the current draw is high. I haven't figured it out yet, but it seems to happen if the total curr...

    How did I ever live without this?!?

    posted by helius1 on 07/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - 18650 battery with amazing capacity - Multiple adapters included - Very handy compact flashlight, which is surprisingly bright (much brighter than the run-of-the-mill 1 Watt bike light that I have) - The retractable cable is very handy to keep the battery...
    Cons:
    - No iPod plug included. The pictures show 7 adapters, and I received all the other 6. Emailed DX about it and they confirmed...

    posted by helius1 on 07/06/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Crazy cheap. $1.70 for two pairs? It costs well over $5 at the local store for one. - Nice little "keepers" provided to keep the tweezers closed. - Stainless steel.
    Cons:
    - The prongs on mine are a little too far apart. You're not supposed to be using these precision tweezers on anything huge, bu...

    Pros:
    - Price. Really inexpensive for what you get. - The points for both of mine line up, unlike the ones for the reviewer earlier on. - Really sharp points.

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

    Pros:
    - Replaceable tips! - Decent build quality for the screw-drivers and tips - Reasonably priced (I've found the same set at similar prices from a few US-based sellers).
    Cons:
    - DX doesn't sell replacement tips. - Packaging, or lack thereof. The screw-drivers and extra tips are packaged in plastic bag...
