    Excellent copy, works, best price

    posted by ribex on 01/10/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    While this is not a Sony branded card (almost had me fooled!), it works perfectly in my PS2, and I have been using it for 7+ months at the time of this writing. It just works - what more could I ask for?
    Cons:
    I can't find any problems beyond that it's a copy, not the original.

    Fair alternative to staples but not a replacement

    posted by ribex on 06/08/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    First of all, I am going to refer to the self-attachment of papers to each other as stapling here, even though 'fastening' is probably more appropriate. The unit looks solidly built, though I cannot easily take it apart to look inside. If an appropria...
    Cons:
    You can't staple as quickly or carelessly as you might with a wire stapler. More patience and concentration is required, and p...

    Mine does not work on phone line

    posted by ribex on 04/18/2007

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

    Pros:
    I would give 3.5 stars if I could. The light is bright enough to light my keyboard when I have the room lights off or low. I like the flexibility of the gooseneck - it's fun to play with. The base is reminiscent of a travel-size mouse, and the button pre...
    Cons:
    This lamp does not work at all when connected to my phone line. It's a good thing it takes AAA batteries. I tried it with the...

    Practical and useful

    posted by ribex on 04/18/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I have used other smartwraps in the past (I think the original was the Sumajin Smartwrap - paid $5 a piece!). This wrap was just the same as the first one I had and works fine. This is a good size to wrap small cords like earbud/headphone cords.
    Cons:
    There is a small amount of material that could be trimmed off to make the edges smoother, but this is a very minor con that is ...

    Helpful, colorful fish

    posted by ribex on 04/18/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I received a colorful assortment of these wraps. The spines are nice to hold sections of cord. I feel that the end slots work well enough.
    Cons:
    You won't want to wrap very thick or very long cables, but a standard earbud headphone cord is the perfect length and weight.

    Very sharp; refilling involves a learning curve

    posted by ribex on 04/18/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great price, and very nice looking lighter. It's as least as good looking as the photos on DX. It was shipped with at least a small quantity of butane. Before I tried to refill it, it lights as soon as I pressed the button down (which slides to reveal th...
    Cons:
    I had a fair amount of trouble figuring out how to fill this lighter, having no prior experience with butane products. No inst...

    Just okay so far

    posted by ribex on 04/18/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It seems solidly built and was easy to "install" into a standard US table lamp. The LEDs are protected with a layer of glass or plastic.
    Cons:
    This light just doesn't put out much light. Maybe my expectations were too high.

    Cute light, moderately bright

    posted by ribex on 04/18/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is certainly a distinctive light. I have never seen a pig's snout light up before, have you? The light squeezes easily enough. The snout comes off (but won't fall off) which could be helpful if you need a little more light.
    Cons:
    I also received the tiny keychain lights (10 pack) and those single LED lights are significantly brighter than this 2-LED light.

    Fabulous, bright little lights!

    posted by ribex on 04/18/2007 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These lights are *bright*! They are nicely small and light. The squeeze button is easy enough to press without accidentally getting triggered. The lights have a little hold switch which will keep the light on, and mostly works well. I bought a 2-LED pig...
    Cons:
    The little hold switch is slightly difficult to use. I have fingernails and that helps. The switch on three of the 10 lights ...
