    Sort of luck if yours will work as intended

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

    Pros:
    Small, handy and liquid filled compas which fits any pocket. Should be part of every EDC, BOB or survival pack. Good readability even at night.
    Cons:
    The one we received does not always work. Even on a plain surface, the needle often hangs. So when out in the bushes I am afrai...

    Great Bag for a great price

    posted by sonne on 10/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    If you are looking for a small but heavy-duty shoulder/sling bag, this one is perfect. When I bought it, DX was the cheapest site to offer it. Material and zippers are of good quality so you can't be wrong getting a Maxp.... remora lookalike for 1/10th of t...
    Cons:
    Top handle might need some reinforcement, e.g. some paracord woven around.

    Usefull as a SDR!

    posted by sonne on 10/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this not for watching TV but to use at as a SDR, since it contains the Elonics E4000 receiver chip. Works fine with the rtlsdr driver and I am using with SDR#, HDSDR and all the other compatible Software.
    Cons:
    Not really a con, but since I have not looked at the circuit yet, I am not sure if it has an overvoltage protection diode on th...

    bright light for a nice price

    posted by sonne on 10/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A nice flashlight, especially for a lady. Shines really bright, even on an alkaline 1.5V battery. Since it's wide operating voltage range, you can use either 1.5V AA Alkaline Cells, but also 14500 Li-Ion rechargeable batteries. Brighter than an S-A2. Makes ...
    Cons:
    Not really a con, but I miss a hole for a lanyard. Also, the clip makes a weak impression and might break.

    cheap trick

    posted by sonne on 10/24/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easy to understand, however needs some training in order to please the audience... Not bad for the price.
    Cons:
    Item was shipped with a small chinese Manual only. So you have to figure out for yourself what to do. Do a search on youtube ho...

    Very good price/value!

    posted by sonne on 10/24/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Not only if you are a ham operator you get a good replacement antenna for your handheld radio. Super flexible so it will not break easily. Instead of the photo featured on DealExtreme I received a DIAMOND RH-701 Antenna. Fits nicely on a number of handheld...
    Cons:
    For this price there are no cons at all!

    Handy and smaller than I expected

    posted by sonne on 10/24/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small enough to be applied to your keychain but not too small to be useless. That philips head screwdriver tip is firm and shouldn't wear out easily.
    Cons:
    I am not sure how long the black coating will last. However, although wearing it on my keychain with a couple of keys it still ...

    Good performance for a fair price

    posted by sonne on 10/24/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    You get three nice tweezers with a tiny/sharp, well aligned and antimagnetic tip for a reasonable price. Great for handling and soldering surface mount devices (SMD) but also useful for crafting or common household tasks...
    Cons:
    There are none at all; Just make sure you don't handle them too rough so they might bend or break. Be aware not to hurt yourse...

    Cons:
    - Threads are a little bit dry - missing o-ring on the extension tube Not much at all, but as mentioned before, you might wan...

    sharp and durable

    posted by sonne on 01/26/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice little knife, very sharp, doesn't wobble when expanded; Looks pretty similar to it's antetype; Very good price/value!
    Cons:
    - after less than two weeks of very moderate use that little black plastic release grip already fell of; It seems it wasn't glu...
