44-Pin Male to 44-Pin Male IDE Adapter
44-Pin Male to 44-Pin Male IDE Adapter
Offered by Micro SATA Cables
Price: $4.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool for accessing 44-pin DOM devices, May 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I needed something to be able to write to a 44-pin female DOM (Disk on Module, an IDE-based SSD) to upgrade an existing device and this did the pin conversion from 44-pin male to female with the proper orientation swap. It's not the kind of thing most people need, it worked perfectly for my project.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre teaching tool with a premium price tag, May 4, 2016
Pros:

Easy to use to follow their experiments
Enough experiments to keep kids busy for a few hours
Battery compartments, speaker and motor are removable and encased in molded plastic frames for use on other projects

Cons:
Very cheaply made (MAYBE $6 in parts with molded plastic parts).
Skimpy instructions that limit learning potential. ("Connect this exactly this way and it should do what I say. Why? Go Google it kid, I'm too busy counting my money .")
Most of the experiments are just variations on the ones before it. (Ok for a while, but essentially changing a switch isn't really a new experiment.)

It's color-by-numbers circuit experiments with a 900% markup. I hope at least some of that money actually goes to the Smithsonian...

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the 18 months that it worked, April 15, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We received this as a gift and my son really enjoyed it, minus a few flaws. The controls are wonky and 2 of the 4 balls wouldn't hold air for more than a day, but the real bummer is the wiring/electronics. I've repaired it a couple of times because the cables that connect it are basically phone cord and far too exposed to hold up. Now I can't even get it to power on anymore. My son still shoots baskets, but it's hard to hold any interest or play someone else competitively without the score keeping.

EDIT: I was able to get ours working again by taking it apart and repairing a loose solder point. We still have a basket counter that occasionally stops working, but re-seating the RJ11 cable to the scoreboard box usually fixes it for a while. RJ11 (phone connectors) aren't build for the kind of stress these things take.

Poor build quality. The dome fell off the first time I tried to use it.

I'm testing it out, but I wouldn't buy one again.

I've used it to install trim and build a few objects around the house. Works well and is a stellar value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works, but cheap and flimsy, April 6, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's cheap. It works. Build quality is pretty flimsy. It has no spring to hold the battery in place, so you're forced to line the battery up and hold it tightly (as in the product picture) to get a ready. (More annoying that I had expected.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Do your homework before you buy., February 23, 2016
They work, but the pins are "stupid-short" (technical term), the scallop shape makes them difficult to mount. Those two things combined make it hard to fit into some fixtures.

If you are installing in an existing fixture, check the orientation of the pins to make sure this will fit. See photo for illustration of how mine fit out of the box. The orientation pictured doesn't allow the fixture to close.

You can turn some T8 outlets with a little creativity (and a #6 machine screw / nut) to hold them in place, but figure that out before you buy the bulbs.

Also, the color is around daylight (5000K) I was looking for more soft white. I bought some 2700K film to install between the "bulbs" and glass in my fixtures to warm the color up for a warmer look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifesavers. On my 3rd pair., February 7, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I haven't found anything better for helping heal the my heels. Wear them only at night unless you want to wash them (very) frequently.

I also discovered that they are useful for protecting an injured (lacerated or blistered) heel. I ruined my first pair on the beach after I cut my heel open. But they saved my vacation by allowing me to walk without severe pain.
