    lots of space, for small amount!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Until now I have been using a high speed 4GB card in my Pentax K10D DSLR. But for an upcoming long trip, I wasn't sure if that would be enough to store all pictures during that trip. So I decided to buy an extra 4GB. When shopping through the dx.com stock, ...
    Cons:
    the fit into the SD card slot in my camera is a little tight. With the old card, it will be pushed out by a spring when I press...

    good value replacement battery for K10D

    posted by manjh on 01/31/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The battery has the correct size, and fits well into my Pentax K10D SLR camera. In fact, it looks identical with the original Pentax battery, besides the label. When I would remove the label, I could not tell the difference. It also fits very well into the...
    Cons:
    Capacity of this battery is slightly lower than the original. Pantax claims to deliver 1650 mAh, this dx battery only carries 1...

    small, compact, low price

    posted by manjh on 01/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a nice and handy breadboard, not the one you will use to experiment with large and / or complex electronics schemes, but certainly one for a single AT Tiny chip wit a few components around it. It comes with a self adhesive base, for if you want to a...
    Cons:
    Nothing that I can think of, really.

    Samsung protection!

    posted by manjh on 01/04/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    solid material, although it is not really leather (but what can you expect at this price). It fits very snugly, and all the cutouts are in the right place. Color is exactly right, since this is for my wife's tablet. She's a member of the Red Hat Society, so...
    Cons:
    nothing that I can think of, although the color will not be to everyone's liking! In my case, as a gift to my wife, it is spot-on.

    Dallas sensor in a heavy duty packaging

    posted by manjh on 12/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The Dallas DS18B20 sensor is a great little device, with a more than sufficient measuring range and resolution. This unit packs a Dallas sensor into a stainless steel tube, with a 1 meter wired attached to it, watertight. Looks like a good unit, but I have ...
    Cons:
    nothing that I can think of, except maybe the length of the wire, could have been a bit longer. Serious con: the color of the w...

    If you need to measure current, look at this unit

    posted by manjh on 12/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, compact, solid build. And the current terminals are big enough to hold the standard 230v wiring, so no problem there. This unit will measure a massive 30A current, so totally sufficient for the regular household applications, at least at 230V it is....
    Cons:
    The "hot" leads are not insulated at the reverse side of the print. Not a big problem, but keep it in mind and look a...

    nice and stylish

    posted by manjh on 11/22/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a 5V usb powersupply, double outlet, very useful when you charge multiple devices such as phones, tablets, etcetera. But it will also power an arduinoboard. The exterior design has just that little extra. It is sleek, glossy, black, and has a nice ...
    Cons:
    Nothing i can think of.

    professional rj45 parts

    posted by manjh on 11/22/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good quality build this is professional electronics quality. The fit for the rj45 plug is excellent. Two status leds can be useful.
    Cons:
    Connection pins are very close together, and virtually impossible to use with a standard size print. The only way is a custom m...

    Line hunting sensor

    posted by manjh on 11/17/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a nice and compact sensor, build quality is good, connector is ready for a standard Dupont type plug. Price is very good, these sensors cost a multiple of this price when purchased locally.
    Cons:
    The sensor does not have a Smitt trigger. This means that you will need a very "clean" signal, otherwise the start an...

    PLugi-in power supply

    posted by manjh on 11/09/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    What can you say about a plug-in power supply. It's black, has a 1 meter lead with a plug for the Arduino, and the two Euro style pins fit perfectly in the power outlet. Without opening the device I cannot judge the build quality. The outside casing is OK. ...
    Cons:
    nothing I can think of, except that the 1 meter lead could have been a bit longer. But that's a minor point, and moreover it w...
