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

    Pros:
    It's small and it works. It does two things. Makes the volume a tad loouder. With my Nokia N95 8GB, I now drop it down to 70% volume level for good loudness. I used to have to listen to 90% or 100% even with my Shure SE110 earphone. It also makes the music ...
    Cons:
    Increased hiss when using high sensitivity earphones while there is no music. But once music kicks in, you can't hear it. It d...

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

    Comes with a decent case and nothing rattles or fals out while case is closed even when shaken. 3 philips head sizes and 3 flathead sizes! From medium to tiny in sizes is perfect for hobbyists. Also comes with 6 other shapes which will surely be useful lat...

    No complaints whatsoever!

    It looks good but not that genuine-like

    posted by jakiman on 03/21/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Clear buttons do look cool with a clear case. Build quality is not bad. They don't have any rough edges or anything.
    Cons:
    Doesn't have the same "feeling" as genuine buttons. Feels lighter and some keys have less travel. You can't see which...

    Nice and cheap protector.

    posted by jakiman on 03/21/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Covers the LCD area perfectly. Sticks well and doesn't peel off easily. Quite scratch resistent. So it seems to offer good protection. Doesn't make the screen noticeably darker. It's easy to apply without any air bubbles.
    Cons:
    Doesn't help in making the screen any less reflective.

    highly recommended EDC light!

    posted by jakiman on 03/14/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Collimator lense with what looks to be good efficiency. Most of the beam is concentrated in a big round hotspot. Build quality absolutely top notch for such a cheap light. Nothing is glued at the threads.
    Cons:
    It does get fairly hot after a few minutes. But it's expected for such a small light with good output.

    Does exactly what you want it to do.

    posted by jakiman on 02/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fits well and is not loose so it doesn't fall off during use. The diffuser panel is wide so it covers the full width of the flash beam from the internal flash. I will try and upload photos with and without this diffuser later on. The photos definitely ends ...
    Cons:
    Nothing really. Well, it doesn't look as nice as a proper hotshoe mounted speedlites but for a measly $6 or so, can't complain ...

    Cheap and bright

    posted by jakiman on 02/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This light is similar in brightness to the 22000mcd keychain LED. (sku 1100) But the beam is slightly more focused due to the reflector shaped head covering the LED. So in use, it is brighter and more useful.
    Cons:
    On mine, the LED was bent to the left edge of the head. So I had to bend it back to the center position. This worked a treat th...

    Bright with nice white tint. Good quality star with wide contacts.

    Awesome little flashlight.

    posted by jakiman on 11/14/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very bright. With my light meter, it goes up to 3600 lux @ 1m in throw. This is with an OP reflector!(For comparison, Romisen RC-F4 is 3500 lux and WF-606A is 1750 lux and Ultrafire C3 (sku 1993) is 700 lux from my testing) Low mode on this light is 800 l...
    Cons:
    - It does sorta tail stand but not 100% stable as the rubber clicky still touches the ground. Doh! - Head is still glued to th...
