Pros: Price, Kickstand, backlight, included soft case, tests transistors and LEDs and did I mention price!
Cons: There are two sections on the meter where the ranges are printed in green on a black background. Very difficult to see, but for the price, one can get over it.
Other Thoughts: I showed this to a friend who promptly bought 3 so he'd have one in each car and one on his bench. It takes a bright light to see the green on black range selections, but 8 bucks for an otherwise great meter is a good value.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Novelty Tetris DIY Collectible Game Style LED Constructible Puzzle Lamp
Pros: Fun concept
Pretty light (when you get it working)
Cons: Poor design in that the blocks do not interlock in any way so the constructs are very fragile and therefore the electrical contacts are tentative and the blocks sometimes don't light up or flicker. The slightest nudge will send the whole thing tumbling down.
It is difficult for me, a senior adult, to get the blocks placed just so, so that they light up. There's no clear way to know if the blocks are placed correctly to light up or what to do if they don't.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a birthday present for a child. He will love it but find it very frustrating because it doesn't work very well and won't stay together at all. I suspect his most fun will be finding out how much abuse the blocks will take before they break. LOL
If there were, say a magnet on each side, something, so the blocks would snug up and stay in contact with each other, then the whole thing would work much better.
This review is from: Lytro Light Field Camera with Bundled Slip Case - 8GB - Graphite
Pros: It works as advertised. You can select focus after taking a picture and turn still shots into animations with shifting focus and zooming and moving around the image.
Great value for 70 bucks.
Cons: Unusual camera shape and controls makes it a real learning experience trying to figure out how to do anything.
1000 x 1000 pixel image is too small for serious photography
Extremely noisy picture in anything but full sunlight
Even at f1 setting depth of field seems quite broad so you have to have an object very close to the lens for the close focus and mid-field can't bee very far away or it is the same as the background focus.
Other Thoughts: Interesting to use, once you play with it enough to figure out how to use it. The latest version of their software is lots of fun to play with.
An amusing toy that can bring a new dimension to the creative process. Just wish I could afford the real camera version!
