Here's the thing: A lot of people have bad things to say about the 11th Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver. And they're valid complaints. BUT, I think it's over-all a great product.

About the seller:
AWESOME. The product came with no problems or complications, and it arrived two days before the estimated arrival date.

About the Screwdriver itself:
-It IS kind of lame that when the claws are extended you have to push the button at the bottom to activate the light and sounds.
-It IS kind of lame that the main button on the side doesn't quite line up sometimes, so when the claw is not deployed, and you're supposed to be able to use the primary button, about half the time it doesn't work.
-A lot of customers say that installing the batteries is overly complicated and difficult.

BUT!
-Releasing the claws and the spring action is SO satisfying and makes you feel like you're gonna take on the whole Dalek empire singlehandedly.
-I didn't have any trouble at all installing the batteries. It was simple and quick.
-Sure, it's disappointing that the main button is finicky. But it requires you to adjust the top of the screwdriver or hold it in a specific way. It takes a delicate touch and I've gotten pretty good at it while my friends still can't get it. And that makes me feel even more like the Doctor. It's totally an oversight on the part of the manufacturer, but it's fitting that you have to fumble about and make the screwdriver work sometimes just like The Doctor often does with his technology.

Overall, it's an awesome toy. It's not perfect, but who cares? It's 20 bucks and you get to run around annoying your friends, pretending to be the doctor, and sonic-ing everything in sight.

Epic. Well designed. Well built. But still doesn't do wood. Goodness, I'll have to invent a setting for that, it's embarrassing!

This is not for people who are careless and rough with their toys. For the price, I'm not surprised that it's made of plastic. It really does look a lot like the 11th Doctor's screwdriver, but because it's made of plastic, it doesn't have much weight to it. This is not a negative criticism given the price and the materials used. The light and sounds work just fine with the extender claws retracted and extended.

There were a lot of negative statements about installing the batteries. This made me hesitate to order the item, but I found that it wasn't difficult to put the batteries in at all. I think there will be some subset of people who will find it more involved than others, and that's all there is to it. This toy doesn't use AAAs. It uses three 1.5V L1154 disc batteries (thicker versions of your average wrist watch battery). You'll need a small tipped Phillips screwdriver to open the battery casing. Not a huge difference from most toys. And if you want to be really careful, the toy does come with instructions.

When the claws are extended, the black button that turn on the LED light and sound is disengaged. There is a hidden red button at the tip of the handle that allows you to make the sound and turn on the light instead. This is because when you extend the claw, the button that enables light and sound extends with the claws--a design choice made by the manufacturers. You can see a very small black button along the shaft that lines up with the regular button when the claw is extended. If you have little fingers, you can press that button to engage the sounds and light instead of using the hidden red button.

I suppose that a more involved design that allows the use of the same button whether or not the claws are extended would have raised the price.

It's a VERY cool toy and has impressed many of my Whovian friends. It's not completely flaw free, after all, it's a TOY! The bottom button cover has seemed to lose it's ability to remain closed (I plan on embedding two small magnets to fix that). If you don't have the top half snugged on tightly, it's possible it will completely pop off.

HOWEVER, there is a little secret to this toy! It has a HIDDEN FEATURE! At present, if you press the sound/light button, it alternates between two sounds. HOWEVER, if you quickly press it THREE times and hold, you get a new sound. THEN, press and hold FOUR times, you get another new sound! Enjoy!

i ordered this product because I was the eleventh doctor for halloween, and i wanted a sonic to complete my costume. also, i just wanted eleven's sonic because matt smith and his wavy arm dance connect to me on an almost spiritual level. The batteries the toy came with are still working well, which is pretty rad because i've been using this since october!

I bought 3 for my sons for Christmas and they love them! It makes more than one sound which makes it more real for them. I can tell they really feel like they are Doctor. They grab them when we watch the show and turn them on when the Doctor does. We've been having so much fun! Matt Smith is our favorite! It's a big hit in our house and even better than I thought it would be!

I purchased the 10th and 11th Doctor's Sonic Screwdrivers at the same time, so some comparison will be made in this review.

Authenticity: About a 3. It's generally the right shape, design and all. The jaws are notably plastic and cheaply made, but the paint job overall is well done. Note that I have seen two other of this model brand new, and neither had as fine a paint job as the one I purchased here. So I'd say their quality control needs a bit of work. The 10th version is far more authentic because well... it was the exact model used in the show itself. The 11th cannot unfortunately make that claim.

Fun: I consider this overall more "fun" than the 10th version because it actually has a spring-loaded extension mechanism which slaps into place with a rather satisfying "whack" (and is great for startling unsuspecting onlookers). The drawback is that the hilt button ceases to function when extended, requiring one to either have a rather long thumbnail to reach the displaced button inside an opening within the driver (which was not meant to be reached)... or using the default button on the butt-end (which works with no problem but does require one to realign one's hand). Still, a rather satisfying effect overall and significantly better than sliding a rather largish button (as is the case with the 10th version, authentic as that version may be).

Educational value: It will be a real education trying to install the batteries. First you will be educated you probably do not have a cross-head screwdriver that small, as well as the price of obtaining one. Then you will learn just how much torque can be applied to a cheap screw head without stripping it, which will improve your motor-coordination skills.
