    Extended reach lighter with a flexible nozzle

    posted by rowsdower on 06/22/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This lighter is actually quite compact for an extended-reach design, and the flame size is very easy to adjust via a textured knob that fits over the refill nozzle.
    Cons:
    I have no idea how the LED battery would be replaced. Then again, LEDs last a long, long time. It's also a little pricier than ...

    A high quality butane torch at a low, low price

    posted by rowsdower on 06/21/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A butane torch of similar quality would cost me many times more at anywhere else I know of. It has a cool industrial look to it and holds plenty of fuel, plus it comes with a slide on rubber foot in case you need it to stand upright.
    Cons:
    There is some cheesy writing inside the fuel tank I could definitely do without. Still, at less than $3 you don't hear me not c...

    A better than usual anti-static wrist strap

    posted by rowsdower on 06/21/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A simple anti-static wrist strap that is a cut above the rest, both in terms of price and quality. Many anti-static wrist straps have a velcro-type band that is a pain to secure, but this one is elastic (and adjustable) so it slips right on. Most importantl...
    Cons:
    The band is a little small even at its loosest setting, but I have a slender build so it isn't a problem for me. Still, if you ...

    Absolutely gorgeous lighter that works beautifully

    posted by rowsdower on 06/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This lighter is absolutely gorgeous, with a deep and highly detailed engraving depicting...actually, I have no idea what the scene is about, it looks like some kind of an Egyptian hieroglyph, but whatever it is it will keep you mesmerized. The action is fla...
    Cons:
    I'm confused as to how the wick would be changed, but I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

    Great novelty lighter at a great price.

    posted by rowsdower on 06/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The bullet lighter looks very real and has a good weight to it. Gun aficionados will especially love this and appreciate the close approximation to an actual rifle cartridge.
    Cons:
    As others have mentioned there are some critical parts near the ignition area that are made out of plastic, and prolonged usage...

    Nifty all-in-one card reader in a tiny package.

    posted by rowsdower on 02/17/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This little reader has a very nice, solid design. For less than half the price of a dedicated card reader that can only take a SINGLE format, you can have this one that will read FOUR. Even if you only need one type of card reader, I would still recommend g...
    Cons:
    No labels as to which card goes where, but you shouldn't have any trouble figuring it out as a quick examination of the ports w...

    A huge amount of stuff for a tiny, tiny price.

    posted by rowsdower on 02/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    As others have stated repeatedly, there is simply no way you can get so many quality replacement flints and wicks at such a low price anywhere else. If you have a couple of oil-lighters, or even just one, you MUST get this!
    Cons:
    No real cons, at such a low price you really can't complain about anything. However, you should be a little careful about openi...

    A beautiful vintage oil-lighter.

    posted by rowsdower on 02/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a beautiful vintage oil-lighter, with a very high level of detail in the engraving and a very nice weathering technique that gives it an especially convincing vintage look.
    Cons:
    No real cons, but the case is very tight around the inside unit. So tight in fact that I needed to use a stiff wire through the...

    An awesome pick gun for an awesome price!

    posted by rowsdower on 02/11/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    For the price, you're not likely to find a better pick gun anywhere. The stamped metal body is quite thick and sturdy, as are all the internal parts. Also, it comes in a very discrete, unmarked white box which can help any problems involved in clearing cust...
    Cons:
    The trigger action was initially very rough and inconsistent. Upon opening the device (very easy to do, btw) it was apparent th...
