    Looks good value, but be careful

    posted by nige0090 on 05/15/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good price Packaging claims 3 ton limit Packaging claims hooks are forged Hooks have safety latches with springs to prevent them falling off securely
    Cons:
    The hooks don't have a load rating stamped on them. I don't know how to judge if the hooks are forged or not. If they are its...

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

    Pros:
    Quite a distinctive look Quite large. The blade was sharp on arrival. Ideal to add to a picnic set for cutting salami etc
    Cons:
    Probably too large to carry legally as a pocket knife. The blade was very stiff to open initially because the screws holding th...

    It works and its cheap

    posted by nige0090 on 02/18/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Its priced very competitively. The build quality is acceptable. The picture quality is pretty good. It enables progressive display.
    Cons:
    The picture does seem a bit soft. Its probably worth paying a few bucks more for a slightly better one. It would be nice if th...

    Works but not perfect

    posted by nige0090 on 11/15/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is quite cheap. It was delivered quickly. It works reasonably well. Uses AA rather than AAA batteries
    Cons:
    Initially I had some problems with this remote. The range was so poor as to be almost useless. Then I disassembled it and fou...

    Nice but got a 704A instead of a 705A

    posted by nige0090 on 04/11/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Its a nice compact knife. Makes an ideal pocket knife. Already quite sharp when it arrived. The build quality was slightly improved compared to the first one I bought.
    Cons:
    This is the second one of these I ordered from deal extreme and on both occasions I got a 704A instead of a 705A. Its a diffe...

    Quite good

    posted by nige0090 on 04/11/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Uses a single readily available AA battery. Its a compact size. Relative good light output (but not as good as a C3). It throws the light quite a distance. Its quite cheap.
    Cons:
    One of the battery contacts was smeared with some sort of film. It looked as though a battery had leaked inside the torch befo...

    Very good value

    posted by nige0090 on 04/11/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good value comapared to local prices. Practically five batteries for the price of one. Quality looks good and arrive in good condition. Fits garage remotes etc
    Cons:
    I don't really need five batteries. I couldn't see an expiry date on the batteries or the packaging.

    Quite a nice knife

    posted by nige0090 on 03/13/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Its nicer than I expected from the photos. The silver finish makes a change from all the black knives. It was sharper than most of the other DX knives on arrival. It quite a compact size, slightly smaller than expected, but still ok. It quite lightweight....
    Cons:
    It might be a little bit too light for some people.

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

    Pros:
    Useful item to have. It works as expected. Its got a power led! Slightly higher power output than the other model.
    Cons:
    Modest output current capability. My previous one died when I overloaded it with an AA battery charger. The plug type doesn't...

    Great value but poor packaging

    posted by nige0090 on 03/13/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good value (even allowing for a few low voltage ones) Battery quality seems ok but I can't judge the longevity
    Cons:
    In common with most people, the packaging was inadequate. Most batteries were loose, one battery was completely dead and anoth...
