    What you pay for...

    posted by mongman on 02/04/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap and well made. It looks really nice and will certainly look good mounted on an engine. I wasn't expecting too much for the price and first appearances certainly were favourable. BUT...
    Cons:
    While the diameter of the mounting tube is 39mm as stated, the minimum diameter of the throat is about 28mm so it isn't appropr...

    Good Quality, highly reflective

    posted by mongman on 11/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great quality stickers. Thick plastic, appears to be able to withstand adverse or harsh weather conditions. High level reflection that catches low light sources. Nice big size. 10 per packet.
    Cons:
    Up close the stickers seem to have small imperfections like dots or dust caught between the reflective layer and the clear oute...

    Great for PSP!

    posted by mongman on 09/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have bought I few of these, and, with the exception of one faulty one (dealt with by DX in a quick and headache free manner as usual) They have all been excellent. I use mine for games, music and videos for my PSP and they work flawlessly. Real 16GB, quic...
    Cons:
    The only other Sony device I have which uses memory sticks is my camcorder which will not use this because it is not MagicGate.

    Great quality, excellent eye protection package.

    posted by mongman on 09/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Appears to be genuine Daisy. Solid construction and the lenses click into the frame securely and feel like they will stay. Other replaceable lens goggles I have feel as though the lens is only marginly secure and indeed pops away from the frame with any imp...
    Cons:
    Some of the more expensive protection goggles on DX, but that being said, probably some of the most protective and sturdiest al...

    Good quality!

    posted by mongman on 09/12/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good build quality. Comfortable and strongly stitched. These offer excellent protection to your knees and elbows.
    Cons:
    Price could be a little lower, otherwise not much springs to mind.

    Quick and efficient sharpener

    posted by mongman on 09/11/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good price. Very easy to use and quick knife sharpener. I few swipes of the blade through the sharpener really brings dull blades back to life. It really makes the blades razor sharp.
    Cons:
    Build quality in a few areas isn't too impressive and I have to say that I do wonder if the adjustment screw for the blade shar...

    Good cheap sunglasses.

    posted by mongman on 08/03/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fantastic style. I own a pair of Ray Ban RB3194 sunglasses, and these, with the exception of the extra piece of metal above the bridge are virtually identical. Initially, my wife said that they were too wide and a bit flat. I compared them with my Ray Bans ...
    Cons:
    Had some paint chips on my pair. They are very thin (which helped when it came to bending them, but the give you the feeling th...

    Well made and finished.

    posted by mongman on 08/03/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very well put together. Each part of the package looks and feels like a high quality product. For this price you could expect something with half the quality of manufacture and materials and still be happy with the purchase.
    Cons:
    Old tech. Not tested, but presumably not undetectable. When I tested it with an X-band transmission it was detected but with th...

    Fantastic performance and value!

    posted by mongman on 04/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great value for money. Well constructed (withe the exception of the one proviso, below under "Cons"). Actual eye protection according to my unscientific test: Shot 2x with an air rifle (Cadet Delta - 525fps .177 lead pellet) 1. From 3m - noticeab...
    Cons:
    The bridge/nose pieces are flimsily fitted and fall off each time you remove the glasses. they are small enough to be easily lo...

    Well made, but non-slip?

    posted by mongman on 03/17/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very well made. The quality is excellent and detail work very impressive. They are light gloves and don't interfere with motion and allow the hand to still perform picky detail work.
    Cons:
    The one and only con really goes to the heart of these gloves, and that is that the gloves aren't really non-slip. Yes they hav...
