    Good but only for very small cams

    posted by herbsolo1 on 07/30/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's cheap. And it does what it's supposed to do allright.
    Cons:
    It's really small and you won't be able to balance your DSLR on it. It's barely able to hold my fuji F30 compact camera. It's q...

    5 Stars for this one!

    posted by herbsolo1 on 07/30/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's easy to use (point and watch) and fast. Temperature is displayed for 5 seconds or so. Display is backlit (can be turned off) I mainly use it for cooking (check if the oil is hot enough already if i'm frying something. Also checking the temperature of m...
    Cons:
    Does not work with reflective surfaces - like say - a steel pan (This obviously isn't a fault with this specific device, but is...

    Looks great, works great

    posted by herbsolo1 on 04/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Full five stars for this little thing! The front button controls the Laser-Pointer (hold it down to activate it) - The laser is really strong (be careful!) The second button behind it controls the two LEDs - Press once to turn on the UV-Light, twice to turn...
    Cons:
    It's a bit bigger than most of the other flashlights (not a big deal) Also, the buttons can be pushed accidentally when in your...

    Quite Handy!

    posted by herbsolo1 on 04/25/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I've had this thing in my laptop bag for over a year now, and it's really great. - It's an ethernet cable, so there's not much I can say about the function, except this: the roll-up mechanism works great (i've used mine about a hundred times, it still work...
    Cons:
    Could be longer. Other than that: can't think of any cons, really.

    Perfect for eyeglasses

    posted by herbsolo1 on 04/25/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Those are great. I mainly use them to dry my glasses after cleaning them. They're absorbant, and they won't leave scratches or streaks. I've washed mine a few times, come out like new. The cloths are packaged individually in ziplock bags, great for takin...
    Cons:
    Couldn't find any

    Reasonable audio quality, some interference probs

    posted by herbsolo1 on 04/25/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Connection to iPhone works without problems,transmission strength is good (i can't remember any drops), audio quality is ok (i use it mainly for listening to podcasts - no problems here) There's also a remote, it works, but i don't really need it.
    Cons:
    The iphone doesn't fit very well into the holder, which can be fixed with a hobby knife (you only have to cut away some of the ...

    Very good microsope

    posted by herbsolo1 on 04/25/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I use it to check progress when honing my straight razor. It does a brilliant job. - The LED-lighting is good, and the magnification is more than enough for this job. It's easy to use, and it's small.
    Cons:
    If you press down on it, the top part, that comes out if you zoom in can be pressed back in. Also - you need to be gentle when...

    Good cable - better than the original.

    posted by herbsolo1 on 04/25/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The original cable that came with my iphone 3G broke (it still works, but you can see the shielding) so i ordered this one. It came in a handy zipper bag, and it's working fine. Build quality seems to be better than the original (bear in mind, I only have...
    Cons:
    None, it's absolutely fine. It doesn't feel quite like the original, but first things first: who cares, and also, we've already...

    Fun while it lasts

    posted by herbsolo1 on 04/25/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's dirt cheap and it really does what it's supposed to do: emitting UV light at the press of a button. It's great to check money, or just to fool around (there's UV-active on many things like credit cards, Euro-Bills...)
    Cons:
    Mine fell apart after one day. And it's so cramped on the inside, that I couldn't be bothered to fix it. - So the build quality...

    Good bag for MBP 13"

    posted by herbsolo1 on 04/25/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    My other laptop case offers better protection, but it takes up quite a lot of space in my bag, so i ordered this one. - It fits my Macbook Pro 13" quite well, and protects it from being scratched. Also, taking the notebook out or putting it back in is reall...
    Cons:
    It's is only a sleeve, so there's no room for any accessories like a mouse or power supply. Also it doesn't protect as well as ...
