    Pretty good banana style plugs

    posted by mpthompson on 11/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very simple to use. They are reported to be made of copper, but they are plated with a golden metal material that will hopefully prevent them from oxidizing. I bought them to attach speakers to a digital amplifier also bought on DX and they should work fi...
    Cons:
    None really. It would have been nice for the price to be a little cheaper.

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

    Pros:
    Very light weight and without optical distortion. Nice looking as well.

    Good hat, but too small for me

    posted by mpthompson on 04/06/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very nice build quality. I was pleasantly surprised by the build quality at a relatively low price. The stitching looks neat and strong. Perfect for the blocking the sun.
    Cons:
    The hat I received (59 is on the label) is too small for my head and fits me pretty tightly. Fits my wife and nine year old son...

    Very nice mask for Skiing

    posted by mpthompson on 04/06/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this for my son to use for skiing after he lost a similar mask that was purchased locally for $25. This mask is every bit as nice as one that cost 5x more. It does a good job of covering the nose, lower face and neck. I also purchased similar mas...
    Cons:
    The only real con is that the mask is a bit small, but this isn't a problem for my 9 year old son. However, the mask does fit ...

    OK, but has some significant problems

    posted by mpthompson on 04/06/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very inexpensive. I bought this to work on a specific problem where my dog would see a person, dog or other animal outside the front of my house and charge the door and front window - causing significant damage with her front claws. I used this to put a pe...
    Cons:
    Several cons. First, the unit can be activated by electrical noise from other electronic devices such as my TV and desktop com...

    Great for use on my Border Collie

    posted by mpthompson on 09/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Perfect for use on my border collie which has a very soft undercoat that tends to get matted below her ears, chest and legs. Gently pulls/cuts the loose fur from my dog in sensitive areas without complaints. Simple and quick enough to be used on a daily b...
    Cons:
    This is not general purpose comb and is really only meant for management of certain types of fur on a dog. Not meant for the l...

    OK, but with a minor issue

    posted by mpthompson on 09/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought this for my dog to use on night time walks. She is jet black and nearly impossible to see when there are no street lights around. Having a blinking light does help to quickly locate her when she runs under trees, bushes and such. I've only had it ...
    Cons:
    The major con with this tag is that the blinking light is only on one side. Often the tag will sit against my dogs fur and the...

    Pretty good connectors

    posted by mpthompson on 08/04/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These bullet connectors are very easy to solder and the seem to be mechanically very well built. I can't tell if they are gold plated, but solder sure sticks to them with no problem and they form a mechanically secure connection with the wire.
    Cons:
    The price is the major con. You can find them for quite a bit cheaper on other hobby sites, but when you factor in shipping co...

    Works fine for my iPhone 3G

    posted by mpthompson on 07/17/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cable has worked flawlessly for a few months on my iPhone 3G. The cable I received looks very close to the original iPhone 3G cable, but if you look closely you can tell the difference.
    Cons:
    No cons for me. Good quality cable at a very reasonable price.

    Good for holding iPhone during exercise

    posted by mpthompson on 07/17/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Build quality seem very good. The iPhone is held very securely even during vigorous exercise. iPhone can be operated through the protective shield. Easy to take armband on and off. Relatively easy to insert and remove iPhone from pocket. Although not d...
    Cons:
    Biggest con is that the armband doesn't stretch when worn around the bicep. Overtime I've gotten use to this, but I do have an...
