    Feels safe

    posted by ryanlry on 10/29/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Material is quite sturdy and the key ring that comes with it is of good quality. The color layer also doesn't feel like it's going to chip so that's good.
    Cons:
    Much bigger than I expected so you can't probably hang this discreetly on a key ring. Also feels slightly too light and cheap f...

    Does its job but mono only

    posted by ryanlry on 10/29/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The design of this splitter gives you more room than the traditional triangular ones. Very well built for something this cheap.
    Cons:
    The two ends of the splitter are not glued permanently together and can be easily pulled apart. The splitter also only splits a...

    Great cable for portability

    posted by ryanlry on 10/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This product does what it's supposed to. Great tool if you travel often and need to being a USB extension cable along with you wherever you are going. Works like any other cable and fits perfectly into my devices. Build quality is superb too.
    Cons:
    The cable could be longer, maybe 1m (3.3ft) long instead of the current 75cm. The flat cable also twists easily so make sure it...

    Perfect for multiple devices

    posted by ryanlry on 10/23/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Surprinsingly good build quality, nice rich black color and fits very well in ports. It also allows charging of multiple devices at the same time without lowering the charging speed of the devices. Used it on my iPhone, external charger and a BlackBerry phone.
    Cons:
    No cons on this device in general, but I wish there was a version with a longer cable so I don't have to go to my wall socket w...

    Portable tookit

    posted by ryanlry on 10/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good quality, unbreakable and doesn't warp. It's got a very smart design to be able to fit so many tools into something you can slip in a card holder or your wallet when not in use. Easy to forget when unneeded and easy to remember when you need it. Ch...
    Cons:
    Got it in the mail with the sharp end pointing out and almost cut myself figuring it out. Could use some English translation on...

    Sticks well and holds well

    posted by ryanlry on 10/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Got this for my iPhone cable which was flailing everywhere from a hanging power strip when not in use. It sticks well to the corner of my wooden table and now holds my iPhone cable in place so I can grab the 30-pin end of my cable instead of the other end a...
    Cons:
    No cons - this thing does exactly what it should do and holds the cables in place.

    Works but different version

    posted by ryanlry on 10/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought this and spent some time figuring out the configuration, and I was able to reset it and go through the whole set-up with just my iPhone. Now I don't have to bring my netbook around when I travel overseas to shady hotels with just a LAN port, or those...
    Cons:
    Got this with the Chinese firmware and couldn't re-flash it with the English one. It's also not compatible with DD-WRT and the ...

    No extra remote needed

    posted by ryanlry on 10/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I got this for a night light that was on the other end of my room from where my bed was. Programmed it with a spare universal remote I had lying around and turned a huge standing lamp into a remote-controlled night light. Works well and I now don't have to ...
    Cons:
    The range isn't very good but I suspect that's with my remote control and not this device. There is also a half-second lag betw...

    Keeps em' out

    posted by ryanlry on 10/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Read reviews that this works only on some mosquitoes. Good build quality and rather effective against mosquitoes in Singapore, both normal and dengue types. I have it hooked on to a timer plug that turns it on at night during sleep time. The buzz is inaudib...
    Cons:
    The blue light emitted by the device when it's turned on can be disturbing at times but nothing that can't be solved with some ...

    Close up!!

    posted by ryanlry on 10/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought this as an alternative to expensive, heavy metal lens add-ons for my iPhone. Besides being cheap, portable, light, and doesn't scratch other things in my pouch/bag, it does a good job of turning any lens on a mobile device into macro-mode which is be...
    Cons:
    The "jelly" part of the lens addon sometimes drops off the device after awhile, so I'm always in a rush to get the ph...
