    Good batteries for the price

    Pros:
    Very nice batteries. I'm charging them with my old Rayovac 3 in 1 renewal charger and get lots of power for my flashlight. What else can I say about batteries?
    Cons:
    Hmm, cons? Um well they're heavy and ugly. That's the worst I can say about these batteries.

    Good card.

    Pros:
    Nice fast card. Used in several SDHC capable devices without any problems. Only took 6 minutes to write 3GB of data from my PC with DX #11307. My phone would've taken 108 minutes to write the same data. Works fine with included adapter.
    Cons:
    Won't work in devices not SDHC capable.

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

    Pros:
    Neither my desktop or laptop complain about usb speed. I dont know if its usb 2.0 or 1.1, but it took 6 minutes to write 3GB of data from PC. Build quality seems very good. When folded, should survive any situtation. Reads and writes SDHC without any proble...
    Cons:
    Cards are a little difficult to remove. DX only sells it in dark blue.

    Overall good headlight

    posted by mike99 on 07/05/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cree emitter is bright and white. 4 AA batteries may seem heavy, but once you adjust the straps its very comfortable, especially with lithium batteries. Cree emmitter on 16mm disc. There is a heatsink with airholes behind the Cree. Overall seems rainproof, ...
    Cons:
    5mm leds are blueish, just like in the pictures by DX. Modes must be cycled through to turn off. Cree -> 5mm -> 5mm flash...

    Awsome sound after breaking in.

    posted by mike99 on 03/16/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Been using for about a week now. Right out of package the sound was very boomy. After about an hour, midrange came out and then the treble. After a couple of hours they sounded awsome and still do.
    Cons:
    None.

    Good solid meter

    posted by mike99 on 02/24/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Feels as tough as meters costing 10x as much. I liked it so much I bought a set of leads that cost me more than this meter, to replace the cheap leads that come with it. I've compared accuracy against a meter costing more than 10x as much.
    Cons:
    Included leads are cheap. Had to use a knife to modify plugs of new professonial set.

    Good deal

    posted by mike99 on 02/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    All claimed features work. MP3 has a random play mode. FM mode can switch between preset stations. Haven't figured out the ebook function, though. Fully charges in about half an hour.
    Cons:
    Works for only a few hours on battery power. Cannot play and charge at same time. Navigating songs is cumbersome. Took me a whi...

    Decent headlight

    posted by mike99 on 11/15/2007 Certified Owner

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

    As-is this is a decent headlight for up close work in the darkness. I'm an electrician and I expect to get a lot of use from it. Batteries: 3 x AAA

    Strap could be longer for big heads.
