    Great Hammock Top Quality for Large People

    posted by kurtismccartney on 04/05/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Not to be too dramatic, this is the hammock that you've been waiting to own. It is built strong and comfortable. The price is right to buy a couple so that people don't fight over whose turn it is.
    Cons:
    While the product is great at what it does there are some missing parts depending on who you ask. Since this is just the main ...

    Like a beautiful necklace or bracelet

    posted by kurtismccartney on 03/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The magnets are as strong as any of the other neodymium spheres. Very brilliant and seem to resist chipping that happens often with other types of coatings.
    Cons:
    They cluster very easily, so as fun as it sounds to toy around with these as a set of 200+ they don't keep the shape that they ...

    Better with Repeaters

    posted by kurtismccartney on 02/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great dual-band HT with great battery life for such a tiny radio. Go with one of the bright coloured ones like red or yellow - these things are about as tall as the old 1970s rigs were wide.
    Cons:
    Point to point voice was difficult as you can hear everyone else running at 5w (great reception) and you couldn't respond at 3 ...

    Great Product - Missing Documentation

    posted by kurtismccartney on 02/14/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a great little keyboard that performs any of the basic functions that a user would need. Didn't get the repeating character issue on Ubuntu or Android, but some of the functions were strange on the iMac (mostly due to odd keymappings).
    Cons:
    Hard to see the secondary key functions (darker blue). Couldn't figure out how to sync for the first day.

    Charges your NDSL

    posted by kurtismccartney on 01/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is a simple 5v connector cable for NDSL gaming systems. Made of high quality materials. White is great for visibility and unlike other white cables this one stays the right colour. This cable has lasted longer than the DS system it was originally purcha...
    Cons:
    None after more than two years worth of use with multiple DS systems.

    Solid connectors with clean current

    posted by kurtismccartney on 01/26/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Glad to have the second USB port for when multiple people need to draw power or charge devices in the car. Charges at the correct current and voltage - no dropouts or 6v overcharging.
    Cons:
    None related to the function. Had to put some colourful tape on it since black devices disappear into the darkness with great e...

    Perfect for stairwells, garage, and cabinets

    posted by kurtismccartney on 01/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Decent brightness for a LED light. Very sensitive to motion, doesn't need the hand wave to start up like some other motion lights. It also has a brightness dial so that it can be used in areas that need a little bit less light.
    Cons:
    Batteries deplete rather quickly in high use areas. Only has 20s 60s 90s settings, could use something a little longer from tim...

    Perfect Gift for Family and Friends

    posted by kurtismccartney on 01/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Solar panel keeps this car going all summer long. Small enough to store, strong enough to step on accidentally. Isn't noisy or obnoxious. Drives itself better than most actual drivers. Turns around when it reaches a wall.
    Cons:
    Small battery depletes rather quickly. No way to make it work in most houses without south facing window (northern hemisphere).

    Easy to Adjust, Clear Signal, Lots of Bass

    posted by kurtismccartney on 01/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Solid construction, better MP3 processing. This is much better than the other kind that I had used in the past. Listening to music is clearest around 98-102mHz where 320kps songs get their best treatment. In Ontario, Canada aftermarket audio equipment can...
    Cons:
    Remote is unnecessary unless you put an obnoxious amount of music on an SD card. Even then the solid construction means that ...

    Best HT - Super Long Battery Life

    posted by kurtismccartney on 01/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    As a HAM Operator in Canada it can be hard to find a deal - this product is amazing as long as you can follow regulations. Much like the best HF base stations this unit has more bands than it needs. I programmed in the GMRS/FRS, WX Weather, Local Repeaters...
    Cons:
    No DTMF, so I have to politely ask another ham to dial in IRLP on some repeaters if I'm not near a tone generator. Every one o...
