    Looks great. Just like the one in the movie!

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

    Pros:
    Bought 2 of these. One for my niece and one for my daughter. They're both mad about LOTR, and the price was cheap, so I thought it might be something shiny to cheer them up. They're actually quite heavy little rings - must be the weight of the quest ;} Th...
    Cons:
    No real idea of how big it would be when it arrived. My hands are pretty small and they're just a little bit too big for my mid...

    Good item. Works well with raspi & USB Android Stick

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

    Pros:
    This is a great little device, which I use to connect my raspberry pi and an USB android stick to my monitor, whch doesn't benefit from an HDMI slot. Everything worked perfectly without any major tweaks. The image quality is good, without any static or ghos...
    Cons:
    Previously, I bought one of these with a 3.5mm audio output on ebay. This, not having audio, was a little cheaper than the othe...

    Great for the price.

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

    Pros:
    I use an Ultrafire 2600mAh protected cell inside of this and it can pretty much charge up an iPhone 4 in a reasonable space of time. It charges up from USB in a couple of hours too.
    Cons:
    I bought this for a variety of purposes - mainly mobile phones and ipod charging, but I also wanted to try it with Arduino and ...

    Good glasses for the price

    posted by thekanester on 04/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I'd been looking for a good set of geek glasses for reading with; I need magnification between 1.5x & 2x these days 8{ and these fitted the bill perfectly. Being a child of the '80s, the fact they make me look like Michael Douglas in 'Falling Down' was ...
    Cons:
    The box they come in and everything inside, in fact, smells of the usual 'coal-tar' plastic smell that I have grown to expect f...

    Fantastic bit of kit for very little money

    posted by thekanester on 02/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Took over a month to arrive, but it was worth the wait. I'm using it with an Arduino. The 1.0 library only includes example code for the 3 pin sensor, and this one is four. Not to worry though, a very quick google search yields many easy-to-understand examp...
    Cons:
    I can't find any cons at this price.

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

    Pros:
    This appears to be very well constructed. All the solder joints look pretty decent and it fits nicely on top of the deumillenova (uno) board. None of the pins arrived bent either, which was good.
    Cons:
    I used the Adafruit library for this, but with remapped pins from the standard settings. Doing this, I could get basic operatio...

    The little torch that could.

    posted by thekanester on 10/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I bought this just before it sold out! I also bought one of the xm-l t6 zoom-flood torches that professes to have 900 lumens that was twice the price of this one. I've owned a bunch of p4 torches and know how generally decent they are in terms of output. ...
    Cons:
    There are no cons - certainly not at this price. The only thing I would mention is that there is a little tiny bit of slop arou...

    Great stuff. Perfect for my needs.

    posted by thekanester on 10/27/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I've got a bunch of rechargable batteries just rattling around my parts bin and it really annoys me how messy it all is. For that reason, I bought these! Perfect for my needs. I like the fact that you get a variety of AA, AAA and in particular CR123A.
    Cons:
    There are no cons, certainly not at this price. The plastic is good, doesn't crack. They open easily and close well, with no ri...

    Great functionality and great price

    posted by thekanester on 10/19/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought this to test in a 2000 Nissan Almera Tino and a 2003 Hyundai Coupe. It works very well indeed. I use the usual free android packages and free PC package to log data and it works perfect. I was able to remove engine warning lights etc., so it more tha...
    Cons:
    There are no cons. Although, I didn't notice a difference between both vehicles, which I attribute to the engine-management sys...

    Good, functional headlight

    posted by thekanester on 10/19/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Bought this for my mother, who works in a carehome environment and requires the use of both her hands when going between buildings. Batteries last well and unit provides plenty of light and it apparently very comfortable to wear.
    Cons:
    No cons at all. It does what it says on the tin.
