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

    Pros:
    I have this USB WiFi network adapter connected to my linux-based home router, serving as an access point, and it works perfectly. As far as I know, most USB WiFi network adapters cannot be used as access points, but this one does, and this is great for me. ...
    Cons:
    Cons? What cons?

    very convenient

    posted by z80a_CPU on 02/24/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price is excellent. The hooks are small so they are quite easy to use in dense circuits. They are easy to solder to a cable.
    Cons:
    It would be great if other colors were available (at least red). The insulation voltage is not specified and not very high. (I ...

    posted by z80a_CPU on 10/06/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    * very convenient: I generally used solid-core wires on my breadboards, and those wires are much more convenient * very cheap: those 70 jumper wires give a total length of 9.70m for a low price; a 10-meter bobin of solid core wire costs almost the same pri...
    Cons:
    * among the 50 12-centimeter wires, I received 10 green, 10 red, 10 orange, 10 white and 10 blue; I wished I would get some bla...

    A great set of screwdriver tips!

    posted by z80a_CPU on 03/03/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A great set of screwdriver tips, most of the being hard to find. A good price for such a set of tips.
    Cons:
    The tips don't look very resistant to me, I'm not sure they would last long if they were used a lot. The black plastic bar tha...

    A good way to save an old NDS

    posted by z80a_CPU on 03/01/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price is very good. The replacement is quite easy, if you are careful and have good tools (I used SKU 21955 to open my NDS).
    Cons:
    I have the feeling that it's not as sensitive as the original one: I have to press it stronger to have my click detected.

    Pros:
    * Those cases are very useful * They can be assembled together, in a easy way * The build quality looks good * The price is correct
    Cons:
    * The price could be even lower * I'm not really fond of the colors (especially the purple one)

    posted by z80a_CPU on 03/04/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's small, it's light, it's nice. It is possible to use either the internal antenna or the external one (magnetic). It works fine. The price is good.
    Cons:
    It has a mini-B USB connector for power. It would be nice if it could also be used for signal, to connect on a PC without bluet...

    good but could be better

    posted by z80a_CPU on 02/17/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The price is good, as usual with DX. The build quality looks correct for the price. It is easy to install (but see below).
    Cons:
    The viewing angle is a little to small. A mirror a little larger, or slightly incurved would have give a wider viewing angle, w...

    posted by z80a_CPU on 02/06/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It seems to be accurate. It has nice features: * supports several units (g/oz/ozt/dwt/ct/tl/gn), * supports tare (most scales do), * can count pieces, * can be calibrated. It does auto power off after 1 minute. It can be powered with a 6V DC power supply.
    Cons:
    The plate is a little small. The screen darkens after a few (too few) seconds (much before auto power off).

    damn small

    posted by z80a_CPU on 11/09/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's really small. It's quite nice. It goes nicely with my beloved eee 701. It works fine with Linux (using Debian GNU/Linux with kernel 2.6.26).
    Cons:
    It looks slightly too long: some metal is still visible when inserted (see pictures). But the USB standard might required this ...
