    Works well.

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

    Pros:
    -This item is simple enough to use--just jam it into an empty USB port, and you're ready to go. -The beauty of this item is in its simplicity; there are not really any parts to break, and it is small enough that it won't be a bother. -I was able to use it...
    Cons:
    -The design is such that it can snag on cloth or strings (e.g., an article of clothing or the edge of your laptop sleeve or bag...

    Worth it.

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

    Pros:
    -The material seems to be quite good, and it is well-sewn (no worries about a seam randomly coming undone). -The design is true to its origin (or, at least, to most 3D renderings of super mushrooms). -The printed eyes are crisp and neat.
    Cons:
    -The small cord sewn to the top for hanging will deform the mushroom somewhat if utilized. -The suction cup isn't much to look...

    Worth it as a room decoration.

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

    Pros:
    -Great for showing some Canadian pride. -The flag is already fitted with grommets for hanging.
    Cons:
    -Not the best material; the maple leaf and two red bars are just printed on, and somewhat imperfectly, at that. -Mine arrived ...

    Best deal on DX.

    posted by oddsquare on 07/08/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    -Well-built, sturdy, rubbery plastic casing provides a good grip and rugged exterior, except for the solar panel, which is recessed anyway. -This light has a very short recharge time, considering the running time. -The LEDs seem to be of good quality, and...
    Cons:
    -None, really. It's not waterproof, I guess, but that's easily remedied with some silicone.

    Most certainly worth it.

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

    Pros:
    -This product has bright red LEDs. -It is easily visible for a good distance. -It does not take much time for the internal battery to recharge, due to the fairly large solar panel. -The mounting hardware is included, and includes a quick-release clip. -...
    Cons:
    -The clip that holds the unit to the bike feels a little flimsy; I worry when I go over curbs. -The price seems a bit steep fo...

    PERFECT!

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

    Pros:
    -MUCH lower power consumption than most bulbs, even compact fluorescents. -Very low heat output and low weight; suitable for delicate fixtures. -Very long life, at least theoretically, when run on 110 volts. -Very condensed spot lighting that doesn't dif...
    Cons:
    -This product does tend to heat up if run for very long periods of time. -There does not seem to be any significant type of in...

    Pretty cool...

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

    Pros:
    -The heads are easily interchanged. -It has a white LED built into it, and it can be used as a flashlight without turning on the motor. -The "Turbo" mode increases the suction considerably. -The cord is certainly long enough, regardless of whic...
    Cons:
    -The top is not too easy to separate from the bottom; the plastic is weakened by the strain put on it when I separate the two h...
