    Pretty terrible to be honest.

    posted by wolfmuffin on 04/11/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Not that expensive. Builting camera isn't completely terrible. Has a builtin speaker. Plays videos okay. Audio quality through headphones isn't completely terrible. Plays MP3s of any quality without a problem. Has an SD card slot, but I haven't tried ...
    Cons:
    Extremely unresponsive. Doesn't have a slot for the stylus. Incredibly sluggish and unresponsive. UI only responds to touche...

    A good torch, but not perfect

    posted by wolfmuffin on 04/05/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very bright - The strobe mode is INCREDIBLY annoying :D - The entire body of the torch is knurled for good grip
    Cons:
    - A 14500 battery barely fits in it... it's a bit of a squeeze - Push button is an ugly fluoro green color - If you unscrew the...

    Not a bad cable!

    posted by wolfmuffin on 04/05/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Very thin, can run under carpet etc very easily - Good build quality - The best snag jackets I've seen in a long time - Seems to work at high speeds despite its flatness - Comes in a free anti-static bag!
    Cons:
    None really. I can't think of any downsides. Maybe its thinness means that you could break it easily, but none of mine have fai...

    Not too bad

    posted by wolfmuffin on 07/20/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap. Makes incredibly annoying and bright flashing patterns that are guaranteed to get the attention of motorists. Comes with mirrors and retroreflectors built in. You could probably sell these for $30 each at raves and make a small fortune.
    Cons:
    Clip didn't fit my bike. Guaranteed to induce epilepsy in susceptible people. Possibility of dazzling other people on the road,...

    Really excellent

    posted by wolfmuffin on 06/21/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Really, really solid build quality. Feels like it would survive being run over by a truck. Exactly the right size and shape to make a fist around; security guards could use this. Instead of a spring for the negative terminal it has a spring-loaded metal nub...
    Cons:
    With a 1.2v (rechargeable AA) battery the results were poor, about 1/3rd the brightness of a 14500 (which makes sense, it's 1/3...

    Not bad quality

    posted by wolfmuffin on 05/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Price is acceptable, not amazing, but pretty good. About as easy to use as it gets. Build quality is excellent, they're pretty solid and I can't see them breaking any time soon.
    Cons:
    These are not red-cyan glasses (see other thoughts).

    Completely useless.

    posted by wolfmuffin on 05/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Ease of use is high (plug it in, turn it on). Amazingly cheap, would probably spend more than 10x as much for the exact same product locally. Must have picked up *some* dirt or the filter wouldn't have gotten so disgusting so quickly. Sometimes sucks up sma...
    Cons:
    ...but not reliably. Its sucking power is absolutely hopeless and if you want to clean a keyboard you'd honestly be better off ...

    Intermittent and poor quality

    posted by wolfmuffin on 05/28/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Simple to set up. Works on some computers I guess.
    Cons:
    Experimentation with various laptops showed that it would only actually sync at gigabit speed if the laptop already had a gigab...

    Passable but not amazing

    posted by wolfmuffin on 05/17/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Turns on and off instantly; a lot of fluoro lights have trouble with that. Gives a nice ambiance. Very low power consumption. Build quality seems pretty good.
    Cons:
    Very bluish light; do not use this if you are after a neutral colour. Flickers quite badly. Waiting to see if this improves. ...
