    Great GPS

    posted by nnodstrum on 04/11/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Holux offer GPSs (MTK-based) with excellent time to first fix and this little device is a great example. I use it with my Nokia N800, N810, and N900 for fast and accurate tracking while mountain biking, ski touring, and travelling. The compatible battery fo...
    Cons:
    The device is not yet working out of the box under Linux and the BT747 application ( http://www.bt747.org ), but with some reco...

    Useful adaptor

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

    Pros:
    This is a very useful adaptor for avoiding Sony's proprietary and expensive memory stick format. It is cheap, does exactly what it says it does, and offers flexibility in changing and sharing SD cards among devices. I use it with my Sony DSC W5 camera. It ...
    Cons:
    None.

    Decent BT keyboard for phones/distance typing

    posted by nnodstrum on 04/11/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A decent BT keyboard for text entry on devices with no or limited keyboards such as cell phones, internet tablets, or simply for having a wireless keyboard for use with video output on large monitors, TV out, or projectors. The battery life so far seems go...
    Cons:
    The build quality is the major drawback of this keyboard. It has a slight bow in it if you hold it up and look at it lengthwise...

    Simple and secure mounting option

    posted by nnodstrum on 04/11/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This mount is useful for attaching a camera or other device (e.g. speedlight, webcam) that sports a tripod screw to your bike, helmet, railing, car roof rack, etc. The metal base, folding legs, rubber padding are well constructed and when properly attached ...
    Cons:
    The velcro straps are not reversed onto themselves as one would expect (i.e. when you loop the strap around an object and throu...

    Good replacement cells for laptop battery packs

    posted by nnodstrum on 04/04/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These seem to be nice high capacity Lion cells. Although it says they are protected, there seemed to be some debate as to whether this is actually the case. I couldn't see any PCB under the cap so I am assuming they are not. They are a great replacement if...
    Cons:
    They arrived with differing levels of voltage. Might be wise to charge them all separately before installing them into a batter...

    posted by nnodstrum on 04/04/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Would have been a good way to back up SIM cards and read microSD cards. Small, and inexpensive reader.

    Keychain is a bit silly. This thing is also overpackaged. Could not find working drivers for Linux and don't have a Windows mac...

    Cheap but usable

    posted by nnodstrum on 04/04/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A fun toy for kids pretending to be spies, writing secret messages, etc.

    Ink cartridges appeared to be dried out on arrival. They still write, but it's very faint. Build quality is pretty crappy. Yo...
