    Quick simple adapter

    posted by nedmechg on 01/07/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a useful little adapter to have around if you have any devices that use the micro-USB connection (like most current cell phone models) but still have a bunch that use the mini-B connection too. I can just keep one charging cable in my kit now with ...
    Cons:
    As others have stated, the plastic housing is a little big. I would've prefered something a little more sleek, but haven't had...

    OK Adapter, but could've been smaller

    Looks professional, works great.

    posted by nedmechg on 01/07/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Materials and build quality are hard to complain about. The adapter is solidly put together and seems to be as durable as any USB cable I can get off the shelf. The ends of the cable have good solid strain-reliefs that should stand up to quite a bit of ab...
    Cons:
    I had a bit of a hard time getting the micro-USB end to fit into my phone a t first, but seems to work just fine now.

    My new favorite headlamp.

    posted by nedmechg on 04/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This headlamp is a great deal! The light is super-bright, and focused in a tight pattern so it has exceptional range. I routinely use it when out with our pack of dogs in the park at night and can easily spotlight a dog from around 100m and see what they'...
    Cons:
    My main concern is the durability of the plastic body. I tend to be rough on my hiking/climbing gear, and the plastic feels li...

    Kinda small and flimsy

    posted by nedmechg on 04/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    For being a knock-off of a simplified knock-off of a innovative piece of climbing equipment (Kong Frog), this didn't turn out too badly. While not the best build quality, it doesn't feel too flimsy either. It should serve its purpose as a key-chain quite ...
    Cons:
    The biggest quality flaw on this is that the jaws are not secured very snugly and can rotate a bit. This causes them to occasi...

    Handy and simple to use.

    posted by nedmechg on 04/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I recently dismantled my home "office" area and moved the computer into our master bedroom. It just seemed natural to make it into a media center, so I needed a remote to use with it. This one works great! Simply plugged it in on XP and it was recognized...
    Cons:
    The mouse control can be a little touchy, but it works. With some patience, it's not that hard to navigate and click on most t...

    Best BT Adapter I've tried so far

    posted by nedmechg on 04/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I finally found a Bluetooth adapter that does what I need it to! I wanted a small, compact adpater that I could leave plugged in all the time that would work for my stereo audio headphones as well as other Bluetooth links. After trying several others and ...
    Cons:
    The Toshiba software wouldn't install on my work computer, but then it is pretty "contaminated" by other services and software ...

    Cheap, fun, but kinda useless

    posted by nedmechg on 04/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This little die is quite solid and has a decent weight to it. The surfaces are nice and smooth, and the corners and edges are rounded nicely. The graphics are clear and easy enough for a child to understand. The text and lettering are clear and easy to r...
    Cons:
    While this die is nicely made, it may be a little expensive for what it is. It's also not really all that useful in practice. ...

    Bigger than expected

    posted by nedmechg on 02/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * Comes with batteries! * Lights up very brightly! The "beam" effect looks very nice even though it's more of a green that what is shown in the display pictures.
    Cons:
    * Somewhat fragile - the diffuser ("beam" part) came off of mine when I was trying to get the batteries out. * Not packaged we...

    Quick and easy

    posted by nedmechg on 02/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    On a whim, I decided to pick up a scale for weighing my backpacking gear without having to take differential measurements with my floor scale all the time. This makes that task sooo much easier. All I have to do is turn it on, hook it on my pack, lift it ...
    Cons:
    Having a strap on top instead of a metal ring would make it easier to weigh large/heavy items. The temperature display functio...
