    Seems decent

    posted by staleofte on 08/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    White and flat, what more is there to say? Looks good if the back of your televison is white.
    Cons:
    I'd like to see short hdmi-cables for use from ps3, xbox etc and into reciever. But then again, I use this from reciever to tv,...

    Seems like a quality product

    posted by staleofte on 03/21/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I like the design. Has a fan for extra cooling. The fan has a filter. Build quality seems good. Easy to install hd. Comes with usb3-cable.
    Cons:
    Fan rattles some times. The ac-adapter has flat us-plug so if you live in europe you need a converter plug (sku 3529).

    1080p capable

    posted by staleofte on 03/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It can play 1080p files - not all, but 2 out of 3 I have tried so far. Se more details under "Other Thoughts". It's tiny in size. It's noiseless. It doesn't get hot. The interface is clean and intuitive. It has HDMI out and 1080p signal out. It disp...
    Cons:
    The remote is tiny and not very ergonomical, at least not for grown men. Will not play all files 1080p-files, but I guess tha...

    Nice bulb, but a bit pricey

    posted by staleofte on 02/08/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bright and uniform light spread, nice tint (warm white but a bit on the cold side). Seems solid buildt with big aluminum cooling surface. Instant full effect, not like other saving bulbs that take a couple of minutes to get to maximum brightness.
    Cons:
    None I have noticed so far, but another reviewer claims that the leds are not SMD, but I havne not opened the bulb myself to ch...

    Good as long as it lasted

    posted by staleofte on 01/24/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small, does the job. Reasonably fast. Can take 16gb cards.
    Cons:
    It failed after about a year. No more blue light from it, and it does not show up on the drive list.

    Bright but heavy and pricey

    posted by staleofte on 12/20/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bright white light good suited for workplace. Fair amount of spread. Build quality seems good. Big cooling surface. It seems to be suitable for repair if it should fail, because it has three screws in front and in the rear so it should be fairly easy to tak...
    Cons:
    Its heavy because of all the metal. Lightoutput is only spot, so the use is limited to use as spotlight. The price is high, but...

    Could easily be better

    posted by staleofte on 12/06/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It does not say "Police" anywhere :-) Forward click for those who prefer that. Thicknes makes for godd ergonomy. Can be used with AA-cells inside AA-to-C-cell adapters (found here on DX as well). Bright.
    Cons:
    Threads could be better machined. The o-rings could be thicker. No O-ring in front of glass. The star with the led is only atta...

    Flood-to-throw AAA-flashlight

    posted by staleofte on 11/25/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Runs on easily accessible AAA-batteries. Flood-to-throw possible (retract the chrome end of the light). Finish is good. Bright enough for å keychain light.
    Cons:
    It comes with a plastic cylinder that the aaa-battery is supposed to fit inside for a tight fit inside the flashlight. The one ...

    Not bad

    posted by staleofte on 11/05/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bright and even light distribution. Overhead strap, not only around the head. Battery pack is on the back of the head so that weight distribution is good. Batteries included. Aluminium casing for the led. The light casing can be adjusted downwards from neut...
    Cons:
    The battery case has a rubber cover whitch is not water proof, and this will deteriorate over time. The overhead strap could be...

    Seems ok

    posted by staleofte on 11/05/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Looks good with the bronze/golden heatsink. Light is warm white but a bit on the cold side. Light distribution is even (but spot). Heatsink seems to be effective.
    Cons:
    It's a spot, so you can't use it to replace an ordinary bulb but that should be obvious for everyone.
