    Pros:

    Cons:
    No negative points to this product. The price is excellent for such a quality.

    A good Pickit 2 clone.

    posted by platonas on 08/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It looks to be of good quality. It offers a ZIF universal socket which is an advantage compare to the original PICkit2. There is no need for an external power supply, gets what is needed from USB.
    Cons:
    All documentation on CD are in Chinese. I ignored them all and downloaded the appropriate programmer's software from Microchip...

    A nice headphone amplifier

    posted by platonas on 04/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The quality is good, it works with 24 V dc. The low voltage makes it safe in use by anyone. The audio quality is good. The is a lot of white noise and the distortion is not the best but this is tube (valve) sound more or less. The sound is sweeter than t...
    Cons:
    No proper packaging. It arrived packed in the standard babble type envelope. In my case, the volume potentiometer and the tr...

    Good quality S/W PSU

    posted by platonas on 01/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is small and of good built quality. I tested it at 5V/2.1A and the voltage stabilization is very good, 0.5% as stated.
    Cons:
    It is not a really variable PSU. Mine came in a fixed configuration at 5V output without the blue trimmer resistor shown in th...

    A nice economic light.

    posted by platonas on 11/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The brightness is good. Mounting method is nice and easy to make. The consumption is 80mA at 12,9V. This makes a power of 1W. This is lower than the 3W stated in the description of the light. Although an 1W light its output is quite high and I feel happ...
    Cons:
    The only negative thing I consider is the fact that the method of mounting (screw and nut) is not vibration proof. It should c...

    Good flashlight

    posted by platonas on 11/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is quite strong. The light output is high enough, more than my expectations from such a sized flashlight.
    Cons:
    IT IS NOT, CURRENT REGULATED. There is no circuit to regulate the current. Only a circuit to regulate the brightness using PW...

    A good/average UV light.

    posted by platonas on 10/12/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is bright, much brighter than my previous UV light I bought from DX about 1,5 years ago with the same SKU. It uses a different LED and produces more blue and UV light. Any item exposed to the light of this torch looks brighter than with my previous one.
    Cons:
    Quality is an issue here. 1. The metal (aluminum) body is not completely machined and 2 of the o-rings cannot fit and leave ...

    posted by platonas on 03/25/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    As it says is a 5-mode driver supplying arround 1A of current. It works fine from 3,7 to maximum stated voltage.
    Cons:
    It does not work properly with voltages lower than 3,7V. On flashlights with one LiIon cell it will dim as long as the battery ...

    Pros:
    The price is very good, Maybe the lower I found so far.

    5 batteries out of the 20 are empty, 2,9V. Some are at 3,1 some at 3,2 and the rest at 3,3V. Not all the batteries can serve th...

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

    Pros:
    A nice light, Good brightness at high level. Uses a 18650 battery which is better than the AA or AAA cels.
    Cons:
    The straps are not so long. I have to open them fully in order to feel comfortable. The upper strap actually should be a litt...
