    Convenient USB-2-MIDI Converter

    posted by wampyz on 11/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    a lot tinier and easier to pack than my MIDIsport 2x2 and more convenient than my Tascam 428 for quick sessions... class compliant so instantly recognised without drivers being required on Mac, Win, Linux, or iOS... status lights to help troubleshoot what s...
    Cons:
    none...

    10W 3500K LED Alternative...

    posted by wampyz on 11/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    very bright 3500 K light when driven at max spec of 12 V and 900 mA... less bright and warmer 3000 K light when driven at 650 mA... cheaper alternative to the other 900 lumen 3500 K LED chips offered on this site...
    Cons:
    these generate, like all other high power LEDs, a lot of heat... a heat sink is an absolute must unless you want to fry your LE...

    Bite-size Heatsinks

    posted by wampyz on 11/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    tiny, convenient self stick heat sinks... pretty good heat transfer given that they're self stick... perfect for RAM modules... fins greatly increase the surface area and cooling for these little guys...
    Cons:
    be very careful where you stick them... it's a one shot deal... trying to peel them off to reposition them destroys the adhesiv...

    Multiple LED Heatsink

    posted by wampyz on 11/18/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    quiet, active aluminum heatsink suitable for high current LED projects... cools a 2x 10W 1A LEDs sufficiently without issue... my latest prototype build pushed 3x 10W and it's warm to the touch... the fan even got stuck and it still cooled all 3 enough pass...
    Cons:
    none... have found it cheaper elsewhere... delivery was a little slower this time around...

    Square COB Reflector...

    posted by wampyz on 05/30/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    easily slips over a 3 x 3 square LED COB... can mount it using adhesive... spotlights and concentrates the LED light better... great for controlling LED light output directly into the water for an aquarium hood retrofit... or directly up for a torchier lamp...
    Cons:
    there's a gap on the sides between the reflector and the 3 x 3 COB where light can escape... you can easily seal this off with ...

    Stock H13 Upgrade...

    posted by wampyz on 05/30/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    whiter light than stock or OEM H13 bulbs... not just for motorcycles... newer cars now use this bulb type as well...
    Cons:
    not as durable as stock or OEM H13 bulbs... the bulb runs hotter so the thinner filament burns out sooner... thinner filament a...

    Hard Heatsink Adhesive

    posted by wampyz on 05/30/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    excellent heat transfer... convenient tube dispenser... if you poke the tip with a pin instead of cutting it, you can apply it very accurately... awesome for attaching LEDs to a larger heatsink... tacks up well and you have lots of time to reposition part...
    Cons:
    the thicker the layer you need to use, the longer it needs to dry...

    Awesome Mid-Range IP Camera...

    posted by wampyz on 05/30/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    good image quality and refresh rate... more versatile than a basic IP camera... IR filter works great... 2D movement covers a much wider area than fixed cameras... 2 way capable radio built into the unit... included DDNS service... compatible with most iOS ...
    Cons:
    DDNS service doesn't handle port numbers very well... if your ISP blocks port 80, you'll need to DDNS to get your IP and then m...

    Nice phone wallet...

    posted by wampyz on 05/21/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Samsung S3 phone fits very snuggly into the snap-in case back... can still take pictures with the phone in the case... no strange shadows from the case when using the flash for pictures... allows you to carry three essential cards: ID, credit card, debit ca...
    Cons:
    could be cheaper... carrying three extra cards makes the case thicker but it's still quite slim overall considering...
