    posted by mikek85 on 06/01/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I was looking for a good E14 base lamp and this fits the spot just perfectly. * Very bright light. * Much whiter than other E14 LED lamps I tried. * Much brighter than other lamps that have a LED array. * Heatsink seems to perform well since it really H...
    Cons:
    * The light is a bit blueish in the center with a yellow glow, but the effect is rather unnoticable. * The heatsink gets reall...

    Really nice timer

    posted by mikek85 on 03/27/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Loud beeping, I can hear it from another room just fine. * Goes all the way up to 99 minutes which is useful for long dishes. * Really easy and intuitive to use. * Nice slim design, size a bit bigger than that of a credit card.
    Cons:
    * The magnet fell off mine so I had to glue it back. * The magnet is not very strong, and besides having just one makes it spi...

    Awesome USB cable

    posted by mikek85 on 03/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Good quality. * Connected to a JVC digital receiver and it works :) * Nice color. * Seems to be shielded - I run it along with other cables (including mains) and it doesn't mess it up.
    Cons:
    * None really, maybe if they had a longer version it could be nice since I had to use a USB extension cable.

    Really good and plenty of them

    posted by mikek85 on 03/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Good for modding (ie SKU 12355). * Can be used as a door stopper, or to extend an existing one. * You can sew them into you towels and magnetize them to your fridge.. * Or you can build a magnetic knife holder.
    Cons:
    * As many said, if you play with them too much they crack. * Not too useful overall.

    Very useful, but needs to be modded

    posted by mikek85 on 03/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * LEDs are very bright and light up well the shelves of a closet, or inside cabinets or drawers. * Design is nice and relatively good.
    Cons:
    * Need to mod as Rayman77 instructed in http://www.dealextreme.com/forums/Default.dx/sku.12355~threadid.231508 to make the batt...

    Very nice but gets warm

    posted by mikek85 on 03/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Good quality build. * Output light is enough to light up a room with 3 of these. * Corn design makes it's light diffused, which is good for lighting up the room. * Color is rather white (not blueish).
    Cons:
    * Gets warm to the touch after a few minutes (I'd say 60-70 degrees Celsius). * No heatsink on this, which can affect it's lif...

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

    Pros:
    * Good quality build. * Aluminum heat sink provides heat dissipation from the LEDs. * Output light is enough to ligh up a room with 3-4 of these. * Small size (relatively).
    Cons:
    * Gets warm to the touch after a few minutes (I'd say 50-60 degrees celsius). This can affect the longevity of it, so I'll try...
