    Great fun little torch - useful too!

    posted by jennertc on 03/29/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Surprisingly bright - really useful to have on your keys. Fun!
    Cons:
    Can't replace battery when it's flat, but for the price that really doesn't matter. The push button has no lock, so you have t...

    Excellent - watch out for misinformation on the ne

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

    Pros:
    Works perfectly, includes an access LED which is handy. Includes master/slave jumper. Well packed. Brilliant price. Now serving as my primary boot drive.
    Cons:
    IDE connector is on the top, so routing cables is slightly harder than if it were on the end like a regular hard disk. Needs a...

    Poor quality - but cheap

    posted by jennertc on 07/31/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap, good length, very useful to have VGA-VGA cables for connections to LCD monitors, switch boxes, TVs, etc.
    Cons:
    This cable is of poor electrical quality. I note that some reviews say it's fine, so it's possible that there are several supp...

    Great price, great product

    posted by jennertc on 02/05/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bargain price equivalent of OmniBounce. Great for bare bulb effects and softening bounced light indoors. Fits very nicely, but because of the shape of the 550EX's head it only goes on one way round.
    Cons:
    Slightly more see-through than the OmniBounce so probably slightly less effective. May cause a colour shift. As will all such...

    Very unusual gift

    posted by jennertc on 01/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, light, surprisingly good sound quality and volume, very unusual gift!
    Cons:
    Battery door is flimsy. Takes AAA battery. One has to wonder what you'd actually USE this for!

    Kitch cool - and who couldn't do with more luck?

    posted by jennertc on 12/19/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a SOLAR POWERED WAVING CAT!!! For those who don't know, the Chinese believe this to be lucky as the cat is beckoning in good luck and money. To be most effective it should have a hill or mountain behind for protection (a wall or staircase) will do an...
    Cons:
    Those with no taste may see it as "tacky"! ;)

    Now I understand what all the fuss is about!

    posted by jennertc on 12/19/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice build quality - comparable to a Maglite but not quite as well finished. O-rings on both ends, no sharp edges. Battery doesn't rattle around and light remains solid even when being shaken. Nice and solid but good size and not too heavy. Incredibly b...
    Cons:
    If I were being picky, I'd say the push button on the end is an awkward place to put the on/off switch.

    Everyone should have one!

    posted by jennertc on 12/19/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cute (though perhaps more so if you're female), surprisingly bright. Incredibly cheap (price) but feels solid. So useful!
    Cons:
    Light has a definite blue tinge. Can't lock the light on, you have to hold the button down - could get tiring after a while. ...

    Novelty, cheap, light easily - but not brilliant

    posted by jennertc on 12/12/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Loads (boxes are stuffed full), strike very easily (don't press too hard on the striking surface like you sometimes do with "normal" matches, there's no need and they will probably break). Funky retro packaging!
    Cons:
    Not very strong, will break if you strike too hard but they light easily so there's no need. Heads are red, not black (no prob...

    Cheap and cheerful - doesn't work with everything

    posted by jennertc on 11/14/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small and light, standard type-A female USB plug on the bottom plus a red led to show it's plugged in. Not a bad price - but there are lots of cheap USB chargers around, there's not much to them!
    Cons:
    First one didn't work, but Dealextreme sent a replacement with no fuss at all - thanks guys! It's just a 5v supply, so it DOES...
