    It's really an usb 2.0 hub

    posted by luca_ on 11/07/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Many cheap hubs advertised as 2.0 are really 1.0 units with disappointing transfer speeds. This one is really 2.0, so it can achieve high speed transfers. It's really compact and it fits anywhere.
    Cons:
    The cable is short, and it's white (I would have preferred a black hub, but for the price I cannot complain). There's no plug f...

    Cheap and useful

    posted by luca_ on 07/10/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Worked right out of the box (or should I say bubble wrap), clear markings on the PCB, pairing led very useful, nice to have a voltage regulator on board so you can feed it 5V without risk of breaking it (beware though that the data lines are still 3.3V).
    Cons:
    No documentation whatsoever, not even a cheat sheet or an indication of the default configuration (9600bps 8,N,1 BTW). Luckily ...

    Nice hackable display

    posted by luca_ on 11/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice display, easily hackable as an extra display for your linux computer/htpc/whatewer. It's really nice that it can get power through usb, so you won't need batteries if you're going to use it as a computer/htpc display.
    Cons:
    The cable included broke after plugging it twice (the cable was rusty and brittle) It seems that the chipset changes with each ...

    Great for my nokia n800

    posted by luca_ on 11/22/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Really cheap and good protection. Easy to put in place. No glue that could damage your gadget. It doesn't scratch easily with the stylus (I suppose it will over time, but then even the 10x more expensive one I had before was scratched in the most abused are...
    Cons:
    Not really. I'd prefer an antiglare finish, but even the glossy finish of this protector isn't bad.

    Good as a replacement tip as well as usb charger

    posted by luca_ on 08/12/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Extremely cheap and useful. It works well with my n800: I cannot tell if it can charge it completely from an usb port (I didn't buy it for that purpose) but at least it starts charging.
    Cons:
    None that I can think of

    works perfectly with my n800

    posted by luca_ on 01/15/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this charger for my nokia n800 and it works perfectly with it (so it should also work with the 770 and the n810). I used it over short and long trips and it kept my tablet working all the time.
    Cons:
    The led isn't very visible since it's inside the casing. In fact I didn't even realize it had a led until I used it at night.
