    Good buy

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

    Pros:
    The best part of this device has to be the price. You get a bunch (no not really 999) old NES and arcade games that you can play anywhere. Just what I wanted!
    Cons:
    The D-pad is pretty bad. It makes the one on my cell phone seem good. The first one I got was DOA. Turned it on and smoke came...

    Pros:
    It does exactly what you would expect it to do. I've set mine up to turn on some landscaping lights and it hasn't had any trouble. On at dusk just like it says.
    Cons:
    No cons.

    113% AWESOME!!!

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

    Pros:
    Oh man, this watch makes me smile every time I look at it. You either get it, or you don't. Kind of like British comedy. The only way it could be better is if his arms went around like a Mickey Mouse watch.
    Cons:
    Mechanicals aren't the best, mine is a bit stiff to wind which makes it hard to tell if you are overwinding it. Doesn't quite ...

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

    Pros:
    Well, the looks duh. I mean, you aren't buying this thing for it's awesome functionality or time keeping ability. As you can see in the pictures the wheel has both Roman and anglo numerals which is a nice touch. Looks really good if you have a modern styl...
    Cons:
    100% cheapo plastic. This really could have been $5. As long as you aren't handling it you can't really tell, so it still hol...

    HOLY COW!!!

    posted by marklein on 06/25/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    HOLY EXPLETIVE DELETED! I didn't think 5mm LEDs could get this bright, but dayum! These easily rival early 1W and half watt LEDs in brightness. Nothing else quite like this fits on your keychain and still costs less than the replacement batteries. Awesome.
    Cons:
    I ordered a few and on two of them the screws didn't quite fit right. It doesn't really matter since they should be soncidered ...

    Good little flashlight.

    posted by marklein on 06/25/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works well, comes with a decent lanyard )if you're into those). Threads aren't totally nasty, although I've seen better even at this price. Tail cap switches are nice. Oh, and the price is great.
    Cons:
    I seriously doubt that it would survive even a breif dunk under water, but it's not really for that type of use anyway. Reverse...

    It works!

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

    Pros:
    The price is right, and it works just fine. Network speeds are good and it's made my breifcase infinitely more organized.
    Cons:
    It doesn't make toast or massage my back. And it wasn't free.

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

    Pros:
    It's a pretty good looking holder, all aluminium just like the pictures. It's designed as someone said before so that you can slide out one card without opening the case. Brilliant!
    Cons:
    I've owned tougher card holders before, but I'm not playing rugby with cards in my pocket so I expect that it will last a lifet...

    Great copy of a great watch

    posted by marklein on 12/12/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a great copy of a terrific Phillipe Starck design watch, usually sold as a Fossil. The original was a digital, while this is an analog (better IMHO). It looks great and has quickly become one of my favorites (I have a lot of watches).
    Cons:
    Build quality isn't too great. If you look closely at the edges you'll notice some "rough" manufacturing details. It'...

    Decent little knife

    posted by marklein on 11/25/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Inexpensive, decent belt/pocket clip, serrated blade is nice (depending on your preference of course), wood handle looks good when new.
    Cons:
    I give the build quality a "B". The lock doesn't seem very sure of itself compared to the good knives in my collectio...
