    You'll look BUFF in one of these!

    posted by sisyphist on 04/19/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This seems to be exactly like a buff head scarf, but a fifth the price. It's held up well under regular wear. It packs up small, but you can easily use it to tie up a pony tail or cover your head like they show in the photo. It can sit pretty comfortably ar...
    Cons:
    The material's not the greatest quality, but like I said, it's held up, and at that price, who cares?

    My son is still building things...

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

    Pros:
    These are remarkably powerful magnets for their size - one magnet can hold up one piece of paper on our fridge. That doesn't sound like much, but they're tiny! More importantly, you can fashion them into some neat patterns.
    Cons:
    None. But I wouldn't have them around small children, they're powerful enough and small enough to hurt if they go places they s...

    They fit raspberry pi !

    posted by sisyphist on 04/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    We were looking for something that would work with the raspberry pi. The kits offered by North American stores were surprisingly expensive - this gave us everything we need. We were able to easily hook up our raspberry pi to our breadboard without difficulty.
    Cons:
    None that I can see.

    Fantastic price, really strong magnets!

    posted by sisyphist on 04/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Given the price of comparable neodymium magnets, I'm amazed at the value these offer. They're great fridge magnets. For us to buy these off the shelf in Canada, I'd expect to be paying about $10.
    Cons:
    One magnet did break on us, they won't take a lot of abuse.

    Not all power adapters were created equal

    posted by sisyphist on 04/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Our ipods haven't rejected these, they're recognized as acceptable chargers. They do charge, albeit, slowly. They're attractive and light. At this price, you can get a bunch, and never be stuck trying to find one.
    Cons:
    We've found them slow. Sometimes, they barely seem to charge at all. I really question the 5W/1000mA output; if that's accurate...

    Young Naruto fans will love them!

    posted by sisyphist on 04/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought these for my kids, who are die-hard Naruto fans. It's only a moderately popular series in my country, and we've found toys for fans are hard to find. My son popped them off their stands pretty much right away, and they've had a great time playing w...
    Cons:
    We haven't had any trouble. Since we threw away the stands, I can't say much about those. The figurines themselves have held up...

    Good laser, so-so fit and finish

    posted by sisyphist on 04/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The laser throws very well, I can put a spot on a building two city blocks away at night. I was surprised, as it is my first laser, and I didn't think something so cheap would be so powerful. The LED is good enough for reading and following a path. It's ver...
    Cons:
    The button is a little hard to press, and I'm not sure the threads will survive more than a few battery changes. But batteries,...
