    Double the connectors, double the fun

    posted by hsthompson on 02/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Not only useful for Blackberry: if you have two gadgets that charge off Micro USB, you can charge them at the same time from one port. Or connect one to the PC and charge another. Cable is very solid and connectors are well made. They are very cheap, but d...
    Cons:
    None I could find.

    Pros:
    - Very good keyboard this. Big keys, good tactile feedback - Easy to clean (which is useful if you tend to eat in front of your computer... don't ask, I'm a busy man) - Nice to carry around, doesn't take much space if you want to use it with a tablet, for e...
    Cons:
    It is not mechanical. It is not made of fried gold. It doesn't have a Japanese keyboard layout. It doesn't have an Insert key.....

    Does what it says on the tin, also a walkman

    posted by hsthompson on 01/15/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Is a pretty decent walkman on its own. - Mechanical parts have a good solid feel to them. - Does what it says on the tin. - The capture software that comes with it, Audacity, may be free software, but it is a very good choice.
    Cons:
    - If you already have a good cassette player, get a USB soundcard and hook it up. - Rewind and Forward do not stop when tape re...

    The case for the Nook Color and Nook Tablet

    posted by hsthompson on 12/05/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Right size for the device (and several other besides) - Build quality good. - You can use it as a stand - It stays closed nicely - Much better than SKU.49303 if you have a Nook... - ...and two bucks cheaper.
    Cons:
    - I would have preferred a more leatherish texture, as in SKU.49303, rather than the one chosen. - Also design leaves no place...

    I9000 must have

    posted by hsthompson on 07/02/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits very well, and is very sturdy and impact resistant -I'm a rather clumsy person when it comes to phones- It has a lovely rubbery feeling to the touch (even though it is hard plastic). It must be the holes. On top of everything, it is rather nice looking.
    Cons:
    For 2.30 dollars there has to be. It looks cool, feels cool and is sturdy to boot. Cannot find it. There must be one, honest. ...

    posted by hsthompson on 05/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is Class 10. 10 MB/s data transfer in Windows, no problem at all. It has a name. I know it is not as known as other brands, but I've had other cards from them before and they were good. It is large. It is well priced. I walked down a certain electronic...
    Cons:
    No, it is not a con. I kept looking for a fault, stress tested it and could not find anything wrong with it. Zip. Zilch. Nada....
