    Cheap, but unreliable

    posted by lowrider on 10/27/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Inexpensive, relatively bright, came with extra bubble wrap for protection during transit, easy plug & play installation.
    Cons:
    Like a previous reviewer, I found the quality to be at best so-so. I ordered a total of six pairs (separate orders over the spa...

    First impressions

    posted by lowrider on 01/05/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The good: - fair price - no fake logos anywhere, packaging says "MP4 Multimedia Player", no markings on device except for two hologram stickers - works, looks like it does what it says it does - ton of features (never felt the need to record radio on th...
    Cons:
    The bad: - as you'd expect, the camera is crap and the user interface isn't very good, lags a bit and doesn't seem to support ...

    Novelty knife

    posted by lowrider on 12/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Surprisingly nice novelty knife. Comes in a box with a neck chain (despite the "chain not included" marking on the back of the box), an extra screw and a money clip that attaches in place of one of the scales with a T3 screw (the chain holder folds out of t...
    Cons:
    Fingerprint magnet, frame and blade finish scratch easily. Hard but not impossible to open one handed. Usability, well, I guess...

    Good

    posted by lowrider on 10/07/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Price. You get 10 disposable surgical masks for less than $2. As ubiubi mentioned, these do have the metal band (used to achieve a better fit). They're fairly comfortable so if you do any work where using a respirator isn't necessary but you'd still like so...
    Cons:
    Not individually packaged. Therefore not appropriate if asepsis is a requirement. Then again, these are single-use surgical mas...

    Good light, excellent value

    posted by lowrider on 09/08/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I was pleasantly surprised by this little flashlight, even though I have other lights that have an Osram Golden Dragon emitter. It's plenty bright but what makes it stand out for me, is its perfectly smooth beam. The hot spot is fairly large and compared to...
    Cons:
    Heats up quickly on 14500 which is what I use for most of my lights and gets *quite* warm. Battery life less than impressive (d...

    No major complaints

    posted by lowrider on 05/25/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The light I received is pretty decent and even though it's not perfect, I don't really have any major complaints. The finish is gray and pretty nice, just like in the pictures. It takes protected Trustfire 14500s and output is pretty much what you'd expect....
    Cons:
    Came unlubed with two shredded o-rings.

    Better than the gold and silver version

    posted by lowrider on 05/06/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is the black and silver version of sku.8527 to which it is mostly identical. Cheap. Pretty good-looking as long as you don't look too closely.
    Cons:
    The build quality seems to be slightly better. Unfortunately, the clasp is equally fragile and scratches still seem to be a pro...

    Looks like a toy

    posted by lowrider on 04/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's cheap but it also looks cheap and sort of feels that way too.
    Cons:
    The LEDs in particular make it looks like a toy. I don't want to complain too much about a $4 lighter but even if you're strict...

    Not bad

    posted by lowrider on 04/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    If this lighter wasn't so prone to scratches that ruin the illusion of having a somewhat expensive-looking lighter, it would be great. It's still a good lighter and it's definitely worth the money but the build quality of mine really isn't all that great (w...
    Cons:
    Scratches easily (particularly if kept in a pocket with keys). Screw that covers the refill valve didn't last too long.

    Really nice

    posted by lowrider on 04/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is probably the best lighter I've bought from DX. They really got this one right. It feels nice and solid without being too heavy. There are no misspelled words, no LED gimmicks and it works reliably even in windy weather. The specs are pretty accurate...
    Cons:
    Can't really think of any. There was a small red spot in the upper left corner of the logo (visible in the product pictures I s...
