    Complete set of precision screwdrivers

    posted by tmerle on 05/24/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Wide variety of screwdrivers, the description shows the huge list. The handle for the tips is OK and the tips don't move once inserted, a good thing (you won't see the tip fall on the parts you are currently dismantling)
    Cons:
    Mine arrived with all parts disordered, due to the shipping. Did not find the right place for all the parts (the set is complet...

    Cute on the office, but not USB 2.0

    posted by tmerle on 05/24/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cute penguin! This is a smart device on your desk, the colleagues appreciate it. Having put USB keys in the head, it looks little more fun :)
    Cons:
    This hub is a *full-speed* only (12MB/s - 100mA), not high-speed (checked under linux with lshw, even with a power adapter). As...

    Good device for the price

    posted by tmerle on 02/20/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The device is easy to use and you understand all the things written on the screen The device powers-off the screen when you don't use it so it saves the battery. Nevertheless it constantly stores pressure values each 5 minutes (and you can look at the hist...
    Cons:
    The colour could be showier, so that you can easily find it in a backpack for example.

    Good in many situations

    posted by tmerle on 02/20/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The motion sensor is good, and detects well the near movements. I placed it in a closet; it does its job: light when I open an take something, and powers-off 10 seconds after I closed the door. It can serve as a nightlight (always-on mode) for child's cha...
    Cons:
    Only one led could be not enough in some situations. Do not expect to light a big place with only one led.

    Good decorative led lamp

    posted by tmerle on 02/20/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The colour transition is at a slow speed, this is good for relaxing time. Everyone like this ball even if it is not very useful, just decorative (the light is not sufficient to read a book). The lamp is powered with 3 button-style batteries, I let it powe...
    Cons:
    There are only 2 modes: ON (color changing) and OFF. I did not find how to put only one colour mode but this is a minor issue s...

    Not in good taste, but funny thing

    posted by tmerle on 02/20/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    You feel his pain when he shouts (I wouldn't like to be at his place). For the guys with that sense of humor (I don't know a girl that would appreciate this kind of thing), this could be a great gift. The head movement is basic but sync with the cries. B...
    Cons:
    Not really in a good taste so be careful when you are offering this; this could lead to bad situation... Well, due to its usef...

    Replaces your classic flashlights

    posted by tmerle on 02/20/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    There is no more need of battery, this is the best advantage of this thing. Thus you have always a working flashlight. Very handy when there is a power cut, or you are somewhere far from a store selling batteries. You can charge the battery quite rapidly ...
    Cons:
    2 leds is a bit short (but is sufficient in basic situations). When charging it makes some noise due to the charging wheel ins...

    unnecessary therefore essential

    posted by tmerle on 02/20/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is cute, and when it works correctly it is a great office toy! It does no noise since it is made of magnetic-powered alternative movements (no contact between moving pieces). It is a great gift for others (colleagues or friends), that everyone apprec...
    Cons:
    I have bought several of them, a few were broken. Most of broken ones were repairable with some hard plastic glue, but some of ...
