    Great price, big screen, can be challenging

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap. Looks nice, seems to be mostly metal. Runs Windows CS5 and wide range of software can be installed on it.
    Cons:
    Slow SPU, small memory. So far iGo Amigo and iGO 8.3 are a dissapointment. Too slow, can't even draw map in time, at least with...

    Great SDHC reader for ridiculously low price!

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

    Pros:
    I got the blue one (color is a lottery), looks actually quite nice. Very neat covers, so it can work as a thumbdrive with card inside. With 8GB Lexar SDHC card (C2 class - the slower one) with 80Mb file copy it shows 7289 kbytes/sec write speed and 19157 k...
    Cons:
    card slot side cap gets in the way if you using it permanently attached. Would be better removable. No big deal. Color is a lot...

    Good buy

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

    Pros:
    Packaging and card look genuine and are very high quality. I use several Kingston SD cards - quality and speed is very good. Whe copying a large file this from/to SDHC card reader this card is showing 19174 kbytes/sec read speed and 5171 kbytes/sec write s...
    Cons:
    Nothing really wrong with it. Price difference with buying locally on sale is not that great - compare with your local sales fi...

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

    Pros:
    Feels solid, not like a toy. Rubberized surface throughout, except for the center piece with adjustment knob. Center piece with hinges is all-metal and not plastic, which was unexpected and is very nice. Adjustment feels solid and precise, does not drift al...
    Cons:
    Coat is a slight blueish tint, not bright orange like on the photo. I don't know if it matters i terms on quality, but I think ...

    Good value, works and looks OK

    posted by romandesign on 05/23/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Looks good, works surprisingly good. Bright, colourful and informative display, separate 2 right and 2 left sensors visual indicators with sufficient number of steps. Distance readout, Beep speed corresponds with distance. Display looks nice and it's made o...
    Cons:
    "black" I received is not really black, more like metallic charcoal dark grey. Looks OK on black, but it's definitely...

    Great price, looks good, works fine.

    posted by romandesign on 05/16/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It just works. Has three modes: double short flash (like an ambulance strobe), normal flashing (equal on-off periods), constant on. It's bright enough, works on AAs (very important) and looks good. Good quality plastic, looks solid.
    Cons:
    Bracket was too small for my MTB, had to use the one from the reflector I had there before. Double strobe mode has pauses a bit...

    Very bright, useable in all modes.

    posted by romandesign on 05/16/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright, excellent visibility on the road - looks really good, thick and bright, impossible not to notice on the road. Works from 3 AAs, which is very good, cause you'll need a lot. This is not a con, because so many LEDs take a lot of energy, and if yo...
    Cons:
    Bracket might be a little weak for the sise, balance is wrong - it's top-heavy, so it might slip forwards, and I'm afraid to ov...

    Great Buy! Get it!

    posted by romandesign on 05/16/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easy to install, multiple functions, it has pretty much everything you can imagine: odometer, distance, time, average speed, maximum speed, current speed, clock, travel time. It can adjust to many wheel sizes and has an (almost) English manual. Very decent ...
    Cons:
    The bracket is a bit loose on my MTB handle bar, so you might want to put several layers of tape below it. No other cons I can ...

    Good value, useful 2-in-1

    posted by romandesign on 05/09/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap, decent built, surprisingly bright, comes with two sets of batteries, laser also fairly strong, looks good
    Cons:
    Not red as in the picture - silver. One of the two units has a dent and the back cover would not unscrue. Came with weak batter...

    Very bright, decent quality for the price.

    posted by romandesign on 05/09/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very bright, works with AA batteries - that's very convenient. Don't buy AAA flashlight - too expensive to run, and rechargeabes are have so much lower capacity than AA's.
    Cons:
    The battery compartment cap is hard to fit, and plastic hook seems too weak to hold it in place. Sometimes it doesn't close and...
