This review is from: Powerbuilt® 1 5/8" Rear Disc Brake Piston Tool - 940397
Pros: It's metal?
Cons: This is only an attachment for other half of the tool, which is the handle that's required to use it. You can't just put this on a socket wrench (although it will fit), because the piston must be forcibly compressed with significant force WHILE being turned; this requires a threaded handle and plate that pries against the other side of the caliper to exert force on the piston while you turn it.
Other Thoughts: I have one of these and it is utterly useless as it stands. I had to go to Autozone and borrow their kit, which includes the tool itself.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Edimax BR-6228NS 150 Mbps 11n Wireless Broadband Router with 4 Port Switch, featured with intelligent iQ-Setup for hassle free installation and configuration, Green technology for electricity saving.
Pros: Cost, size, appearance, repeater mode
Cons: It inexplicably and frequently stalls.
Other Thoughts: Initially seemed to work fine. But now the unit stalls every half hour or so. I can't even access its administrative page through a wired connection, so it's the router and not my cable provider.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LaCie Rikiki 500GB USB 2.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive 301909
Pros: Small size, bus-powered
Cons: Fails often, connector quickly degrades
Other Thoughts: I've had three of these drives. All eventually started failing to mount and sounding the "beep of doom." The first one LaCie replaced without hassle, but then they started balking. They'll blame anything else, like insufficient bus power. That's a crock; I've tried powered hubs and direct connections. The USB connection is a failure that will become loose over time and force you to spread the end of your USB plug to get it to fit securely. Also, strangely, the power light is on the BACK of the drive (where the USB connector is).READ FULL REVIEW
