    Will burn (just !)

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

    Pros:
    If you strip it down and use a lens off a $4 red laser from DX, you can *just* get it to focus enough at close range to melt some plastic tape. Looks good - nice blue/violet colour.
    Cons:
    Protect your eyes - this is quite a powerful laser and if you mess up could end up going blind ! Dot as supplied is in focus af...

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

    Pros:
    Had this on the screen for over a year now. I've also got a case to keep my phone in but it looks as good as when I first applied it. Keeps the fingerprints at bay Stops scratches Easy to fit if you take a little time and care
    Cons:
    Will show any imperfections on your screen - I have a small pinhead dent in mine and it looks like a tiny bubble. Not a major i...

    Pros:
    Cheap Cheerful Works fine on my 5800 both for charging and powering it for the Satnav. Runs pretty cool - it has a SMPS power converter inside.
    Cons:
    Small connector can be a little tempermental under vibration Sometimes interferes with the radio on weaker stations

    Pros:
    Fantastic tweezers - well made, well packaged and feel good to use. I bought these for PCB work and they are just what I'm after. Very sharp tips though - mind your fingers !
    Cons:
    No cons to be honest with you - they came in 3 seperate packets but it that a downside ?

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

    Pros:
    Pretty good sound quality. The frequency transmission range is progammable in 0.1Mhz steps so suitable for just about any radio frequency system. More importantly, it remembers the last frequency used even when power has been removed so you don't have to se...
    Cons:
    Screen not of best quality - adequate but not that clear. Remote a little clunky but not bad. Browsing between folders a bit of...

    None really. The price might be decent if you actually knew what you were getting
    Cons:
    This is not Amtech flux. Its a poor copy. The label is on squint, the actual part number is not the -UV. The label reads "Thi...
