    We're getting closer to halogen substitutes...

    posted by impigra on 11/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    First thing that stroke me on unpacking was the superb build quality of this bulb. I wasn't expecting such a high quality and, indeed, I would have settled for less. When it comes to color temperature, it quite resembles that of a halogen bulb, maybe rathe...
    Cons:
    One thing that clearly makes the difference between the old halogen bulb and the new led one is the light-span angle. Measured ...

    Deceit: plain old 55W bulbs

    posted by impigra on 02/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    None, when compared to a regular bulb...
    Cons:
    - Worst of all, they are not 100 W rated bulbs. I measured current consumption using a 12 V source, and they were drawing 4.55 ...

    Good small handy flashlight

    posted by impigra on 09/23/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    All three lights are quite powerful. LED light is quite shiny as for a single 3mm LED, reasonably close to the 5mm LED from sku.20243. UV LED quite useful to check banknotes for fakes. Laser LED powerful and projects a decent round shape (I've seen others...
    Cons:
    I ordered two units and both of them had their batteries exhausted, one of the batteries had even not only leaked, but burst, l...

    The HD does not sit in the dock!

    posted by impigra on 04/15/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    You can have your HD in upright position while charging, and connected to the PC.
    Cons:
    - The HD does not sit in the dock. It is just held floating by the mini-usb connector. So any chance to push your HD, or even u...

    Fine thermometer, not only for aquarium

    posted by impigra on 04/05/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Simple, nice looking thermometer. I have no means to measure accuracy, but it gives similar readings when compared to other thermometers, this being in open air. Suction pad holds the thing in place nicely. Celsius degrees readings are a pro for me, but may...
    Cons:
    The battery compartment is quite prominent, I think it could have been flatter. Also maybe a bit on the expensive side.

    It works!

    posted by impigra on 03/01/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It just works. It gave my old Nokia 8250i another 3-4 days of standby power. This battery is equivalent to the original BLD-3.
    Cons:
    The weird thing about it is that the battery level indicador does not decrease smoothly, but suddenly drops from maximum level ...

    Good value!

    posted by impigra on 02/27/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Sturdy and good build quality. The HD fits perfectly in the clip. The suction pad does a really good job (even before removing the protective film!)
    Cons:
    The clip fits a bit loose in the attachment. It could be a bit of a problem if you accidentally push the whole thing - both the...
