    Really useful

    posted by lgmoreira on 12/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -- It is a great portable and low cost test tool. -- It really can help as a starter oscilloscope for hobists and students. -- It has a good bandwidth for this kind of device. Enough for audio / general works.
    Cons:
    -- Unfortunately, it has only one channel. This limitates a lot its usefulness. But even so, there is a lot you can do with it....

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

    Pros:
    -- They do what they need to do. -- They do that well. :-) -- Good price. -- The insulation has a good size, you can snap them and cover the contacts effectively. -- There are also other options of size available from DX.
    Cons:
    -- One of mine came with plastic teared and the joint broke. -- No other cons that I can think of.

    Great tool for the electronics hobbist

    posted by lgmoreira on 12/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -- A must have tool for people that work with electronics or electricalcables. -- Works really well to strip cables. It is the best tool I have used for that so far. -- The pack of three means you will have sharp tools for a long time.
    Cons:
    -- Wider cables don't fit the tool. I believe the bigger one it can handle is 8mm2. -- It seems you have to be careful to not f...

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

    Pros:
    -- It is bright. -- It is very well built. All metal. -- It is STURDY. -- Batteries last a lot. -- The angle of illumination is very good. -- The size is perfect to keep everywhere. -- The color of light is very good also.
    Cons:
    -- I bought a lot of them to put in all places and some of them tend to pop the back switch into inside. But a drop of glue sol...

    Excellent tweezers

    posted by lgmoreira on 11/07/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    --> Very well built tweezers. --> They have the right size tips. --> Very good quality material --> I have been using them for months and they are still fine.
    Cons:
    --> No big deal, but one of the three came with a worse finishing and magnetized. --> The thinner ones have really sharp ...

    Works like a charm, but the price could be lower

    posted by lgmoreira on 06/03/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It is well built, but it is a little loose on some USB connectors. - The small size makes it perfect to carry. - If you travel a lot, it saves you from carrying a USB x USB cable + a USB x miniUSB cable. Just take the first one and this adapter. - Allows ...
    Cons:
    - A little loose in one USB extender cable I used. But it does not fall off, so it does not compromise the operation.

    Good stuff

    posted by lgmoreira on 06/03/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - It really reduces noise from outside. - It really boosts bass. The actual process is that the soft material attenuates treble, but since it delivers sound closer to the ear internals, it has an effect of increasing overall volume. So, in the end it acts l...
    Cons:
    - It is a little tricky to find the right position inside the ear. If you put it the wrong way, it will muff the sound and kill...
