    Nice item but watch out: common cathode!

    posted by mrnmrnmrn on 11/19/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * these strips are really bright! * well made, strip is completely embedded in 5mm thick clear plastic on both sides, means the flexible circuit and smt resistors are well protected from damage (unlike some of the other paper-thin strips) * you don't need t...
    Cons:
    * this strip is common cathode (negative) with separate positives for each of RGB. This makes is incompatible with some other ...

    Great product, but handle with care

    posted by mrnmrnmrn on 11/19/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * really bright! * paper thin strip, with the LEDs sitting only around 1mm proud * when you reconnect power, the unit comes up in the same state (ie powered up or not; same program and settings) * there are a number of programs, hittin a single button on th...
    Cons:
    * seems this strip is pretty fragile. When it arrived a number of the smt resistors had already been half-levered off the stri...

    Neat idea, interesting gift

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

    Pros:
    Clever idea All english phrases, clearly visible on the white bean, in upper and lower case though the size varies according to text length. Writing is either double-sided, or there's a picture/symbol on the second side (eg heart, rose)
    Cons:
    No choice if phrases, you just get what you're given.

    It's pink!

    posted by mrnmrnmrn on 12/21/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's pink. It's easy to use. It takes a standard AA battery. Well packaged, comes in bubblewrap pouch, inside a thin plain cardboard outer. Being metal, the torch feels solid and robust. Both top and bottom ends of the middle tube section have sealin...
    Cons:
    Was a little disappointed with its brightness (or lack of). With a fresh standard 1.5V alkaline, this torch appears no brighte...

    Great gift!

    posted by mrnmrnmrn on 12/21/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Great mini projector torch, only as wide and just a little longer than an AA battery. Easy to hold, and button requires only a very light touch to operate. Surprisingly bright, with good vibrant colours. visible up close even with the lights on. Lightweight...
    Cons:
    No choice of character. I think like me, most people will want one or two designs, and not be interested in the others. (Perha...

    3M Scotch-Brite High Performance Cloth

    posted by mrnmrnmrn on 12/21/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Sent within 3 days exactly as promised when I ordered (11 December). Dampened slightly, it's excellent for cleaning fingerprints, from both shiny surfaces (mobile phone, glasses) and even better on tricky coated/non-reflective (LCD monitor, digital camera s...
    Cons:
    I actually wanted the pink version for a gift. I think most people would prefer DX to list each colour as a separate SKU, so pe...

    Fantastic little torch, very bright, amazing value

    posted by mrnmrnmrn on 12/18/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Cute design that will appeal to many: it's small, lightweight and fun and easy to carry around. * Dual LEDs are very bright, gives a good white beam (mine has a slight blue tinge). * This light is powerful for its size/cost - it puts many "proper&quo...
    Cons:
    I don't feel it can get 5/5 because of the slight niggles with build quality - but I guess I am being overly harsh because for ...
