    Good Gerber Clone

    posted by mpug0 on 04/02/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very close replica of a very nice knife. Everyone who I've given them to has really liked them. Makes a good Christmas gift.
    Cons:
    The blade will dull quicker than an authentic Gerber since it's not the same quality steel. Some might say that it isn't as eas...

    A good "classic" kids toys

    posted by mpug0 on 04/02/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works, and kids can learn about solar panels and sunlight by moving it from direct sunlight into shadows. The wood is very stable.
    Cons:
    Some kids might be too rough and throw the helicopter blades down on something hard which could break it. But, if the kid is ei...

    Good quality USB drive that fits in your pocket

    posted by mpug0 on 04/02/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's actually 8GB as advertised. Many times (not happened to me yet a DealExtreme) when you order from China, the USB drives are hacked to look like there is more space available than what is really there. I used the software/hardware test methods to valida...
    Cons:
    Of course the usb drive folds out of the "card" holder on plastic pieces. So, don't be too hard on it...but it's perf...

    Perfect for the book shelf

    posted by mpug0 on 02/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    1. Decent quality steel for the price. 2. Actually looks like a book. 3. Plastic part to replicate pages really helps it look like a book rather than a box.
    Cons:
    1. Doesn't come with any foam padding inside, so cut some and put it in so your valuables don't clang around inside. 2. Plastic...

    Nice little single band radio

    posted by mpug0 on 08/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A good high frequency radio means that you won't have to worry about many other people using those frequencies! Very Loud Speaker!
    Cons:
    Every time you change the channel, a digital voice speaks the channel number in Chinese. Chinese only manual (not that you rea...

    Good gaming pistol!

    posted by mpug0 on 07/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    1. Really nice to hold (very ergonomic). 2. Trigger pull isn't too long. 3. The built-in nunchuck has a nice spring back that feels good to use. 4. This gun slides open to fit your wiimote into it. The rear sit also serves as the release button to open the ...
    Cons:
    1. Build quality is not perfect...The black piece on the pistol grip is loose on mine. 2. They should have made it slide open a...

    High Intensity Beam in a Small Flashlight!

    posted by mpug0 on 03/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Only one AA battery can produce a very powerful beam. I was impressed with the (even at a moderate distance) blinding intensity. The main (focused portion) of the beam projected clearly at 25 meters at night. Read my "Other Comments" for more info...
    Cons:
    This flashlight (pocket torch) sacrifices battery life (of the one AA battery) for an incredibly powerful beam. There isn't too...

    Useful little item

    posted by mpug0 on 09/20/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This little coupler can really save you in a pinch. I've done multiple CAT-5 (network cable) installs and come up short trying to make a temporary connection. Two network cables can be hooked together by this little device quickly.
    Cons:
    Not the strongest plastic in the world, but it'll do just fine. Don't put it in a bag of metal tools or you might find it crush...

    Need a hot DC wire in your car?

    posted by mpug0 on 09/18/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This works wonderfully on conduit wiring with thin coverings. I've found it to really help in identifying hot power wires in automobile applications...which can really be difficult to track sometimes.
    Cons:
    This item seems to not track power in household equipment very easily. I could not detect power in some of my circuit breakers ...

    Great deal for this item!

    posted by mpug0 on 09/18/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This pick gun works exactly like the more expensive versions. It's got a good strong "smack" to it that can really make the pins move. The price is great for this item. There are a bunch of websites that will charge you $60-$80 for this same exact...
    Cons:
    I haven't run across any clear "cons", but depending on the lock you are trying to use it on, you may run into an iss...
