    Not too bad for the price

    posted by thebeancounter on 02/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap. Flexible but not TOO flexible. The bendable neck holds the shape you bend it into pretty good. The USB plug actually fits fairly snugly in my USB ports. It's small, easy to use and doesn't need to be plugged in to a wall socket or use a battery.
    Cons:
    Doesn't really put out enough light to light up more than maybe a third of a full size keyboard.At least not Strong enough lig...

    Easy to use, makes great cigs

    posted by thebeancounter on 02/02/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap, cheap, cheap[! (This is also a con though) Super easy to use. Just slip a tube over the silver tube thing and drop a pinch of tobacco into the hopper. Press button (pulse the motor on and off quickly if the filter tube doesn't start slowly backing of...
    Cons:
    Cheap materials. The forward/reverse buttons are attached to a small circuit board which is held in place by a tiny piece of p...

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

    Pros:
    Absolutely beautiful watch! Mechanical manual wind, which is damn near impossible to find anymore.

    Cheap band that will wear out pretty fast. Needs winding EVERY day. (I wind mine both when I get up in the morning and before I...

    Covert safe for cash or small valuables

    posted by thebeancounter on 01/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Solid build quality. Blends in well on a bookshelf full of other books.
    Cons:
    Price is bit high for this considering just how small the inner compartment is. I expected something about twice as big as what...

    DX dropped the price on this scale by 8$ just days after I ordered it. And didn't ship this 1 until about a week AFTER they dro...

    Great bargain!

    posted by thebeancounter on 10/09/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap!! I mean REALLY cheapfor a 4 pack of NiHi. And I beleive these suckers might actually be Low Self Discharge as well. I've charged them once since I got them and it was at least 2 weeks before I actually put them in anything. Regular rechargeables lose...
    Cons:
    Not free? Seriously, the only thing that xcould make this a better deal would be to throw in a plastic carry case to keep the b...

    Come precharged and ready to use

    posted by thebeancounter on 09/28/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Great price for LSD batteries. Seem to be the capacity promised (at least they haven't died in my digital scale yet and my scale literally burns through regular rechargeables like a match to flash paper)
    Cons:
    Not free. Seriously...what cons? They were cheap and work as good if not better than duracell or everready NiMh. Could have com...

    Surprisingly good

    posted by thebeancounter on 12/03/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works right out of the box. Takes full size SD card. Instructions are actually instructive and decently translated.
    Cons:
    Can not flip camera orientation. If you mount it to your dash, the video WILL be upside down. In order to record right side up,...

    Works

    posted by thebeancounter on 11/21/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Genuine Transcend (or at least I hope it is) Class 10 card ( again so it says, I hope it truly is) Seems to work well in the cap camera i bought to use it in. Have not had a chance to record any videos with it so I do not know yet if this class 10 card will...
    Cons:
    Price was a bit high for Dealextreme. I can get a 4gb micro SD card online from Newegg for under 6$ but then again the speed cl...
