    They don't look high quality but they work fine

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

    Pros:
    These are among the most useful pieces of test equipment you can have. Either as contacts for a digital analyzer on for a multiple channel oscilloscope to analyze analog circuits, they can't be beat!
    Cons:
    OK, I have to say that when I first saw them I thought they were going to fall apart even before I use them. After soldering th...

    Super useful if you are tired of long cables

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

    Pros:
    Ahh! At last!!! I was dragging along miles of cables for my power adapters (SLR camera battery charger, laptop AC adapter etc) and now I feel free from all of them.
    Cons:
    It could be cheaper... There is nothing really to this that can justify a value of almost $5... Plus the blades/contacts could ...

    Very very useful if you do any electronics

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

    Pros:
    Very good quality exactly like the real thing (from the game controller that I do not want to name...). Ridiculously easy to interface with a microcontroller and mount (it has four nice mounting holes on the PCB).
    Cons:
    I can't come up with something... I guess it is not free... :-)

    Very nice selection but DX messed up

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

    Pros:
    Lots of little bits that you might need here and there and don't have when you need them. Plus all the usual ones that you need every day. Extension works well and the forceps are a welcome addition.
    Cons:
    My problem is not with the product it is with DX. The case latch was broken when I received it and the case does not close. All...

    Much better than what I thought

    posted by lpanagis on 08/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Pretty good, relatively small and light operates just fine from 3V to 5V. Beam strong enough to be visible at least 10 feet away on white walls.
    Cons:
    Beam rotates as you focus it. Be very careful to glue or otherwise immobilize the focus ring or your beam is not going to be level
