    Works fine, exact replacement for GT-I9000

    posted by tolerant2 on 11/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This speaker is exactly the same size and shape as the original. It installed without any problems, and seems as loud and as clear as the original. It arrived in a small cardboard box with a Korean label and "DIY Center" on it in English. I have n...
    Cons:
    Because I fixed my phone I don't have an excuse to buy a newer one! Not really this product's fault though.

    Good dongle, does the job

    posted by tolerant2 on 09/29/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very small. Comes with a full Toshiba Bluetooth software stack for Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit). This is a major plus point for this product if you intend to use it with Windows. Without it you will probably have to install BlueSoleil or similar third-part...
    Cons:
    The blue LED is too bright. I put some black tape over it.

    When you need a big cheap display board, get this!

    posted by tolerant2 on 08/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is an easy way to get a big, bright multiple seven-segment display and switches for your Arduino projects. I could attach this to debug a robot's movement program by displaying values while it's running, or set up some parameters with the switches, the...
    Cons:
    Not a big deal but it comes with standoffs that could be used to mount it onto a baseboard or robot, except that the bolts supp...

    Pretty good, works with Android with remapping

    posted by tolerant2 on 10/16/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I tried this with two devices: a Samsung Galaxy S phone and a Sony laptop running Windows 7. In both cases it paired up easily (you need to enter a number on the keyboard and press Return to confirm pairing, there is no PIN). Once it has been paired with th...
    Cons:
    A lot of the special keys don't do anything on Android. Without customizing your phone you will be able to type and select text...

    Great headphones for the price

    posted by tolerant2 on 09/09/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    These headphones have good reception, and looks like quality construction. The drivers are OK and produce good bass. The charger looks like a quality item too, and the battery lasts a reasonable amount of time. Pretty comfortable for short periods. Paired f...
    Cons:
    They are pretty heavy, and get a bit uncomfortable after a couple of hours. Treble is not that great, needs quite a lot of EQ f...

    Excellent for quick temporary cable runs

    posted by tolerant2 on 05/15/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a really thin cable that slips easily between carpet and skirting board, and lies very flat on door frames and picture rails, making it great for putting up inconspicuous temporary (or long-term) network cabling. I used it to get a wireless access p...
    Cons:
    Make sure you unroll it as you lay it, rather than uncoiling it from the center, otherwise it gets really twisted.

    Works with Dell e1705, no problems so far

    posted by tolerant2 on 04/14/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Compatible with Dell e1705. Battery discharge time is about the same as the original factory battery.
    Cons:
    The battery charge meter on the bottom of the battery, which on the original factory battery lights up to show the state of cha...

    Great device, excellent value for money

    posted by tolerant2 on 04/08/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The handlebar mount part is excellent. It has a nice ball joint arrangement that tightens up to any angle really solidly. The foam pads on the arms get a pretty good grip on a phone. The clip between the mount and the phone carrier makes a very solid connec...
    Cons:
    The phone carrier seems a bit flimsy for bike use (understandable for the price). There is only one small screw holding the bac...

    Cute and entertaining, build quality not great

    posted by tolerant2 on 12/29/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very high novelty value for kids. Both 4-year-old and 10-year-old liked them a lot and actually used them for games in preference to real dice.
    Cons:
    3 out of 4 dice did not work out of the box. I had to open them up and clean a nasty chalky substance off the batteries. Once t...

    Spoiled by false triggering of remote

    posted by tolerant2 on 10/27/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This lamp is bright enough to light up a small tent room. It produces enough light to read by when all LEDs are on. The remote works well from across the room and it is great to be able to get into bed and then turn off the light remotely.
    Cons:
    The infrared remote on my unit works fine during the night but the lamp gets triggered by just about any source of heat during ...
