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

    Pros:
    - Excellent value - Supports many simulators - Various R/C transmitter adapters included - Use your R/C transmitter as a joystick! I have configured it to work with FlightSimulator X and I'm having fun controlling those big helis with it ;)
    Cons:
    I couldn't find any issues or cons... Could be slightly cheaper maybe

    Saves energy

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

    Pros:
    Very cheap LED lights with MR16 socket. Works well with a 12V AC (!) power supply. However it's not advisable to use them with AC supplies because it limits their lifetime. Still, I'm using them more than a year and they still work fine (bought 6). Saves lo...
    Cons:
    Personally I like the color temperature of halogen bulbs more than LEDs. Even though these are "warm white" they stil...

    Pros:
    - Incredibly cheap. - Has smart cover functionality. - Fits the Nexus 7 nicely. - You can fold the lid so your Nexus 7 will stand, which is great e.g. for watching movies in the train.
    Cons:
    - Doesn't look like it would last very long. - I'm not sure where it's supposed to be microfiber. - The outer texture is fake l...
