Skagen Men's 233XLTMB Titanium Watch
Skagen Men's 233XLTMB Titanium Watch
Offered by Watchsavings
Price: $75.00
18 used & new from $64.52

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Design, December 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Skagen Men's 233SLTMB titanium watch is great for those who are looking for a low profile analog watch. The band is very easy to adjust and the design is such that it fits nicely against the skin. The watch adjustments are "old style" via the side adjustment wheel. As an engineer I often work around machinery and don't like having to take my watch off every time. This watch's low profile makes this a possibility. Also the glass is of high quality and resists scratching.

Pros:
Low profile
Easy band adjustments
Easy time adjustments
Quality glass

Cons:
Could really use phosphor on the dial so that you can read the time in low light


Micro SIM Cutter, Converter with 2 SIM adapters

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, December 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Micro SIM cutter is a simple product but is effective. I purchased this to cut ATT sim cards that were in Iphone 3GS to micros that could be used in Iphone 4S. These were Christmas presents and the though of waiting on ATT customer support either on Christmas day or the day after to activate the new SIM cards was not appealing. So after the presents were unwrapped I used the SIM cutter to cut down the card and put it into the Iphone 4GS (took less than 2 minutes) and it worked flawlessly. The kit also includes the adaptor so you can use the micro SIM. I also tested this by putting the micro SIM into the adaptor and then putting back into the Iphone 3GS and it worked great. This product is effectively a "hole punch". The only way you can make a mistake is to not fully insert the SIM card or put it in reverse. Once you put this SIM into the punch (metal down) check from the bottoom to see that the metal contacts are fully visible and the SIM is inserted as directed on the punch.

Pros:
Works well.
Good price.
Adaptors work.

Cons:
Blister pack type packaging. Terrible for the environment and no fun to cut open.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great switch, December 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The D-Link DGS-1008G 8-Port switch is a great addition for those looking to increase the number of ports is a particular location. I use this switch is my office where I have Cat 6 cable link to my D-Link Router which also switches at 1 GB. The switch is easy to setup (connect ports and plug in). It correctly identified the connections as either 100 MB (yellow LED) or 1 GB (green LED). The switch serves two computers, a network printer, a VOIP phone, and an HD Slingplayer. All work great.

Pros:
Installation is very easy
LED indication of connection type and activity
LEDs are dim ( I prefer this as it is less of a distraction)

Cons:
While the shape is attractive. The airfoil design and the LEDs being on the top do not allow for easy stacking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fit for purpose, December 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Case Logic DLBP-114 laptop bag is designed for transporting a 14" laptop and accessories (not much more).

Pros:
It is well constructed and it has not shown any signs of wear during 6 months of ownership
The PC compartment is sized well for a 14" laptop and is adequately padded.
The small top compartment is useful for items that you want to get to quickley (earphones, phone,etc.)
The front zipped area has a section that fits/holds a passport, pens, glasses.
The main compartment is big enough to hold a few notebooks or a notebook and a text book

Cons:
The front zippered section is not as easy to access as it should be as the zipper only exposes 60% of the area.
There should be a better place to store keys in this comparment with the use of a caribiner or latch.
The side pockets are not that useful. One should be converted to a water bottle carrier.
