    A charger to charge them all!

    posted by mihijios on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I use it everyday, to charge any combination of iPhone 5, Galaxy Note, iPad mini, iPad 2, and all take about the same to charge as with their respective original chargers. I haven't tried ALL at once, but I have done iPad 2 + one phone and it does well.
    Cons:
    The blue LEDs are too bright. One the good side, this reminds me to unplug it when not in use.

    Works, even with the hard shell on

    posted by mihijios on 05/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    My Note has a hard shell (SKU 119805), and it still fits this dock. (My original Samsung dock doesn't) Nice quality, solid build. Pretty decent for the price.
    Cons:
    With the hard shell on the phone, you only need to be a little careful when connecting, otherwise you might not get the phone a...

    Release your iDocks from the Apple lockdown

    posted by mihijios on 05/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    My wife's new iPhone 5 made our HK GoPlay dock nearly unusable (you know? those 3.5cm inputs are not that sexy). With this small device, now we can connect the iPhone 5, and my Samsung, and whatnot. Sound quality is quite good. The range is standard, well-...
    Cons:
    Sometimes we get some some crackling noise. Build quality could be a little better, though it's not that bad. It claims to imp...

    Nice, compact charger with enough current

    posted by mihijios on 05/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I am not sure if it delivers the full 2.1A, but my Galaxy Note gets charged at a very decent pace. I also connect here the bluetooth audio device (SKU 163694) and it works fine, without noticeable noise. No noticeable heat up, too.
    Cons:
    LED a bit too bright. Would prefer something small and discreet.

    Waiting for the USB 3.0 version

    posted by mihijios on 05/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The rotation feature is pretty nice, and well implemented; it doesn't feel like the device is going to break or jam. It looks good, and gives your laptop a cleaner look than what you can achieve with hubs with a cable. I connect 2 different DJ controllers ...
    Cons:
    None, really.

    Pretty good deal

    posted by mihijios on 05/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Phone fits perfectly inside, even with hard shell. Screen remains decently responsive.
    Cons:
    No con so far. Will it hold hard enough to the bike? Not sure yet.

    It simply works. Give one to a photographer friend

    posted by mihijios on 05/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have a Nikon D5000. It just works. Haven't tried it under extreme light or distance situations, but so far, it simply works. No hassle, no errors. Very thin so it's easy to keep on the camera backpack.
    Cons:
    (this is like a constant at DX: ) None, really. At this price, for such a simple product, nothing went wrong

    Pretty decent, non-expensive extra battery

    posted by mihijios on 05/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Battery life is about the same as my 1 year-old original battery. Not great, but acceptable. Charger is a welcome addition to the package. Charger has an extra USB port so you can charge both phone and battery at the same time
    Cons:
    Battery life could be better. Still, it does the job. When you charge your phone at the same time as the battery, the process i...

    Good, but no audio on my 2012 MBA

    posted by mihijios on 05/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is recognized instantly by my Macbook Air (2012 edition). Gives me the full 10980x1080.
    Cons:
    I can't get HDMI audio from it, just video. Apparently from pre-thunderbolt connectors it can, but not with my Mac. I need to r...

    THE Android box to buy. Period!

    posted by mihijios on 05/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This little box is the main reason I started shopping at DX. As some famed reviewer put it: why buy a cheaper stick-type Android TV, when you will end up buying a USB hub, an ethernet interface etc? Better get everything you need + the kitchen sink in this ...
    Cons:
    My second unit came with a non-working power supply (I need to post those pictures to ask for a replacement...). Originally, ...
