    Really useful!

    posted by jasnz13 on 05/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are very useful magnifiers! Compared to a fixed magnifying glass this is really much more useful! For reading electronic part numbers and chip numbers I find I often slip this on and off my forehead. In fact they are used so much that I haven't put t...
    Cons:
    Due to the fixed focal length you often have to move pieces that you're working on close to a fixed distance relative to your e...

    Really Good strippers.

    posted by jasnz13 on 05/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are really good wire strippers! I was kind of surprised that they were as high-quality as they were. I've had no trouble stripping the various gauges of wire that I have tried. It always seems to strip flawlessly.
    Cons:
    The only con is maybe you might want automatic strippers that always get the right stripping length that you can dial up? But t...

    I like it!

    posted by jasnz13 on 05/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are very useful if you have a number of plugs which come from a number of regions! These have fit American, British, New Zealand, and European plugs without incident for me! The individual switching on and off of the various sockets is a nice touch.
    Cons:
    However getting a plug initially into the socket is quite hard and requires a little bit of jiggling. In the end I've got every...

    Not the best

    posted by jasnz13 on 05/06/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are useful as connectors for ethernet cables. They basically function as one would expect.
    Cons:
    You have to be careful that the connector has all of the pins. After connecting one cable and testing it I found that it didn't...

    A decent solder sucker

    posted by jasnz13 on 05/04/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The soldier sucker works as one might expect however the tip is of medium quality. However for the price one can't expect miracles and I would recommend someone buying this. Certainly at this price I would buy again
    Cons:
    The rod which clears the soldier which is sucked, can sometimes get loose which requires you to unscrew the sucker and reinsert...

    Good but smells

    posted by jasnz13 on 03/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The fits the iPad almost exactly. The iPad has a very snug fit in the neoprene and the neoprene does a very good job of protecting the iPad. It is quite easy to insert and remove the iPad from the pouch.
    Cons:
    One problem with the pouch is that it smells! It has a very strong chemical sent when you first receive it. I have tried washin...

    Good cutters

    posted by jasnz13 on 03/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are some good cutters. I was happily surprised at the quality upon purchasing them from DX. They cut efficiently and I think the cutting heads will stay sharp for a long time. (at least they have stayed sharp so far.) Also, they fit nicely in your hand.
    Cons:
    The springiness could be increased a little bit. They have a tendency to not spring open quite as far as one might want. Reall...

    Good jumpers.

    posted by jasnz13 on 03/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These are good quality jumpers. They have a nice grip on them when inserting into breadboards. They also come in a variety of sizes. Really it is the quality of the wire on the ends and the ability to easily insert them into the breadboard which is a plus f...
    Cons:
    None really but if I had to pick something then I could suggest maybe more wires in the pack or maybe some longer cables in the...
