PROS
Compact Works with Arctic fox Seems durable
CONS
Feels a little cheap battery door doesn't secure too well
This mod offers quit a lot for the cost, it's well thought out and (I think it) looks nice. Support with the Arctic Fox firmware has been added so you can change the firmware if you like. The only downsides I find with it are that it feels a little cheap as I'm used to full metal body mods and that the battery door doesn't secure as well as some other mods do. Although the batteries don't fall out I do find myself pushing the battery door fully shut throughout the day.

PROS
It works Fun to build (if that's your thing) A cheap way to get a basic oscilloscope Comes with case (unlike many other pocket oscilloscopes) Instructions are suitable, although a little hard to follow at times Lots of support and mod guides online
CONS
You have to build it (if you're not into soldering) Takes a while to calibrate Only 1 channel Case is fiddly to fit External power only
I bought this kit as I don't own an oscilloscope and haven't got the money for a desktop unit. All I really want an oscilloscope for is checking PWM signals coming from an Arduino and checking audio signals. The kit was fairly straight forwards to build, although I would recommend having a multi-meter at hand as the blue 4-band resistors are quite hard to read. Most of the components are pre-soldered SMD parts, leaving you to solder some resistors, capacitors and switches etc... Having the SMD pre-soldered is a bonus as it takes the hard work out of it. Once it's all together there are instructions on how to calibrate it, if followed methodically it'll be up and running in no time. The interface takes a little getting used to, but I imagine that is the same for any oscilloscope, especially cheaper ones with less dedicated buttons. Although the screen is small it's still very usable, although obviously not up to a pro standard. It only has a single channel which may be a downside to some, although the cost of a dual (or more) channel scope is considerably more. The case is quite nice once put together, but it can be fiddly getting everything lined up when you're putting it together. There is no internal battery for this pocket scope which kind of takes away from the portability a little, but considering the price this isn't surprising. If you search around the web you'll find quite a few guides on how to modify this unit, upgrade the firmware to add extra features such as serial data output to a computer and how to add your own battery pack. All in all it's an awesome starter scope for anybody on a tight budget who's interested in seeing the signals.

PROS
Amazing design (subjective) Well built
CONS
Heavy
I've been using this mod daily for a few months now and its held up to daily use quite well. It's a fairly heavy mod, but its weight does make it feel like its well built. If you like the design then you cant go wrong with this mod.

PROS
Compact Tests capacitance Tests frequency Generates frequency Big clear screen Lots of different connectors
CONS
Stand is a bit flimsy Feels a bit cheap, but well enough built
I bought this multi-meter mainly for the extra functionality over my existing multi-meter which only covers AC/DC voltage and resistance. It is a very compact multi-meter which can feel a bit cheap, but it is well enough built for general use. The screen is large and has very easy to read numbers. The extra leads and connectors are very useful such as the screw terminal, if you are reading a number of voltages with a common ground you can just screw the ground lead to the appliance meaning you only need to use one lead to quickly measure the voltages.

Comes with batteries 3 different lights
CONS
Cheap construction
We bought this to entertain our cat who appears to enjoy chasing the red dot around the living room. As a laser pointer it works well, as a torch it doesn't offer much light from the white LED.
