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

    Pros:
    Works under Linux after searching for the drivers (pcsensor v 0.01 not v 1.00 in my case - there are several different versions of this stick around though). Temperature output matches that of a mercury thermometer within .5 degree C from checking (on an an...
    Cons:
    Had to experiment with several different Linux drivers out there - this chipset seems to have had several different drivers, I ...

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

    Pros:
    I'm not sure why people are complaining about the size, I'm 6 foot 5 with fairly large hands and these fit me well. The heating pads themselves are relatively small but (so long as they're worm facing the palms) warm the incoming blood flow on the hands and...
    Cons:
    none

    Works great under Linux

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

    Pros:
    Works well - I had issues with my onboard sound card intermittently pausing under Linux and causing halts, using this as my output device with pulseaudio I have had no issues - it was picked up immediately and I was able to choose it as a device with padevc...
    Cons:

    Works perfectly under Linux

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

    Pros:
    This saved my bacon recovering a server, it worked with every USB stick I threw at it plus SDHC cards. I was able to recover the server using a mixture of SDHC and USB sticks (both SD and SDHC cards) under Ubuntu Linux, without it I would have been complete...
