    No problem with 1080p

    posted by rickochet on 07/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's rated as 1080i but I am using it with my 1080p TV and media player. No problem whatsoever. Cable is thin and flexible so nice if you just need a general purpose low-cost HDMI cable. Didn't try with Blu-ray 3D but I wouldn't be surprised if it works wi...
    Cons:
    It's just a cable. It works or it doesn't. In this case, it works. No cons.

    EN-EL10 lithium battery charger

    posted by rickochet on 11/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Sturdy construction. Case has an embossed "Nikon MH-63 Lithium Ion Battery Charger" and a Nikon label at the bottom. Looks genuine. Works fine in charging my EN-EL10 battery. LED is lighted during charging and goes off when fully charged. Charging...
    Cons:
    There are three contacts on this charger but the middle one labelled with a "T" doesn't seem to be connected to anyth...

    Good for backup battery

    posted by rickochet on 04/26/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    You need to do a simple "initiation" before this battery can be used, as simply inserting the new battery in your Blackberry will cause the phone to display an error. Put the original battery into the "Original Battery" slot of the inclu...
    Cons:
    Although the replacement battery is rated as 1500mAh, it does not last as long as the 1000mAh original. I have a Blackberry 936...

    Good Buy

    posted by rickochet on 03/13/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice! I've bought a few other circularly polarized glasses from DX and I must say this one is the best I've seen (not counting the clip-on). It is stylish and the rim is flanged at the top so making it easy if you wear prescription glasses. The flanged part...
    Cons:
    Price is a little high. About $4 would be ideal! It is a little "plasticky" and the lens are soft PVC, but with care,...

    Good quality, reasonable performance

    posted by rickochet on 03/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The cable itself looks well-made and sturdy. The length is useful for most purposes. I tested with a USB 3.0 computer port and a USB 3.0 external hard disk drive. Using the extension cable causes a drop in the transfer rate by about 25 - 30% which may be ac...
    Cons:
    There is a decrease in the transfer rate when using this cable which may be attributed to the additional inline connectors and ...

    Lightweight replacement glasses for passive 3DTV

    posted by rickochet on 02/08/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good points are - lightweight, no distortion, color not too dark. Works with passive 3DTV like LG. Very good low-cost replacement or if you simply want more glasses for a big gathering. Lenses are thicker than other PVC types.
    Cons:
    Stylish? Not really. Iron frame is, in my opinion, a little flimsy but I don't think it will fall apart during normal use. The ...

    Good Replacement for 3D Glasses

    posted by rickochet on 01/12/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This product works very well with commercial passive 3DTV (Cinema 3D) and offers a good alternative to the originals supplied with my 3DTV. Its large-size frame allows me to slip this easily over my own prescription glasses (just like at the cinema). I did ...
    Cons:
    The PVC plastic lenses were a bit thin and soft. My glasses arrived with one lens dislocated but not broken. It was, however, a...

    Good Replacement for 3D Glasses

    posted by rickochet on 01/12/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This works very well with my passive 3DTV (Cinema 3D). I did not observe any difference in performance when compared to my original that I got with my 3DTV. Color of lens is almost the same as the original. The polycarbonate lenses that are standard with th...
    Cons:
    Not as well-made as my branded original, though, but this in no way affects its performance.
