    This review is from: iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit (Tools & Home Improvement)

    Wonderful kit to own for anyone involved in electronic repair, personally I do computer repair as a hobby so I will make use of these tools one way or another. My only concern is price. I think this item is way over priced for whats included, I wouldn't pay no more than $45 for this kit seeing it firsthand. Its obvious all we're paying for is company branding, as I've seen the exact type of 54 bit kit with exact bits, product placement, and exact items only with a different company branding, by Trident of Olympus Pro Series 54 Bit Driver Kit (Screwdrivers).

    The kit received is almost identical as the one pictured above, although my metal grabbing tool (currently phased out and replaced with iFixits utility knife) had bent prongs and the suction cup has no metal key ring, or a place to affix one to, as shown in the images above. I really wish they would lower their prices and add more selection to the amazon site. I've had my eye on their "Pro Tech Screwdriver set". So I'll see where that ends up as far as being listed on amazon and pricing. It would be nice to have a lifetime warranty as other companies who stand behind their products tend to offer when they boast about how popular, and well their tools are.

    Especially when throwing in that the CIA and FBI use their tools (I guess that adds to the cool factor); and yes I'll name drop, "Tekton Tools" makes a neat small precision bit set. Notice I said bit set, all the extra plastic prying tools, tweezers, for electronic specific work are not included in Tekton sets but for one spudger in the precision set.

    I own the TEKTON 2841 Everybit and Electronic Repair Screwdriver Bit Set, 135-Piece and can say its quality surpasses these bits, the Tekton bits appear to have better craftsmanship and overall appearance; not only that but you get a lifetime warranty. Which is always a plus. Also before ending this review. I'd like to say that i hate the included screwdriver with the set, I never liked aluminum body precision screwdrivers and never will. They have to much surface area with little to no grip sometimes my hands tend to sweat and slip, or I cant get a good grip on the tool as the ergonomics aren't there. I know they state that the included extension can be used as a T-handle to apply more torque, but what if the extension is already in use, then what?

    Although this screwdriver has three rubber O rings. I still don't like the feel of the tool in my hand. Now a precision screwdriver I do love the feel of in my hand is the HUSKY 8-in-1 Precision Screwdriver - Phillips & Slotted, which can be purchased for about $6 at home depot. I wish Husky made a bit set for this particular driver as oppose to slotted, philips, and torx bits.

    ****UPDATE 11/15/2013****

    So as I stated earlier that when I received my tool kit that the "metal grabbing tool", arrived with bent prongs I then emailed customer service on the 4th of November to request a replacement. Well, I was contacted by someone from iFixit and they requested images of the bent prongs, which I felt was absurd; as if I would waste my time on a matter that wasn't true. But I went along and still sent them, and by the tech supports own admission I was then told "oh, that looks like it can be bent back into shape", therefore acknowledging I received a bent tool.

    Are you serious! If I buy something brand new I shouldn't have to make any modifications to it due to poor craftsmanship on your part. I mean does this representative not know that bending metals back and forth tend to weaken the structure? So I said no, I don't think this is something I should be doing as I purchased this brand new and I didn't want to take the risk of actually breaking it furthermore and then being the blame, so I was later contacted and told that my shipping info needed to be emailed back to them so they can send me a replacement asap, since this tool kit was purchased via Amazon.

    Well I'm glad to say here it is on the 15th of November and still nothing from them. This company is low in my books if you ask me, they use the smoke screen of saying government officials use their tools which adds a "cool factor" to their company name, but these kits can be purchased under various company names. These are mass produced sets with different company branding see Pro Series 54 Bit Driver Kit...

    Dollar Store Quality at a Hobbyist Price. UPDATED, July 29, 2013

    This review is from: iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit (Tools & Home Improvement)
    I was so excited to receive my Ifixit pro tool kit today. The were some repairs that have been waiting around for me to get the proper tools.

    These were not it.

    The first two pentalobe bits disintegrated during the first use. Seriously?!? I was using delicate pressure. I then tried to salvage the situation with a flat tip bit that broke off. Some of the tools seem decent like the ESD tweezers, while other appear to be cheap dollar store crap, like the bits and several of the pry tools.

    If you are a pro or have a serious need to get into proprietary items, Apple stuff, phones etc., then save yourself a nightmare and buy the good stuff. If you can afford 75$ for a one-time use product, this is your company.

    I read a review where the customer contacted Ifixit and they replaced his tool set with a much higher quality item, apparently there are some extreme quality control issues. As I ordered through Fulfilled by Amazon, I am unable to contact the company directly for a replacement (I have searched and it keeps dumping me into Amazon customer service). The thought of this toolkit existing in an actual high quality version that I am unable to get my hands on just frustrates me further.

    *******************************************************

    They contacted me a few days after the review and asked me very specific questions. There are 2 versions of this thing floating around and you definitely want the one with orange letters on the back of the driver set. The difference in quality is night and day.
    I am happy with the replacement and they sent it to me with no fuss. They need to get the bad versions out of circulation. They are aware of them so if you have a problem, tell them..

    Poor quality, but good selection of tools., September 14, 2012

    The GOOD:
    the metal plungers on both selection and quality. The metal plungers are resistive to high heat and abrasion. I have heated these up with a heat gun to assist removing adhesive, without applying the heat gun directly to the adhesive. Wire brushes haven't scratched the chrome plating either. The screw bit selection is really nice and the tweezer selection is very appreciated.

    The BAD:
    The screwdriver quality isn't the best either. Once a screw bit is in place, the bit has some wiggle room and when it comes to precision screws, you don't want very much play in your driver. The bearing on the opposite side of the driver catches every now and then, which is annoying.

    The UGLY:
    The quality in the tweezers sucks. Period. NONE of the tweezers pinched at the tips upon delivery. This is VERY irritating when you are trying to remove a small item from a circuit board, when the item keeps slipping. One of the tweezers was completely bent where it looked like someone dropped it before putting it into the set. When I looked at the tweezers through a magnifying glass, I could clearly see a gap at the tips. I corrected it with some specialized tools I had, but the average DIY wouldn't have these and you really shouldn't have to do this.

    There is my two cents.

    Works perfectly out of the box, February 7, 2014

    This review is from: QQ-Tech Mini Bluetooth Keyboard W Touchpad for Android OS Windows (Electronics)
    Paired this up with a Nvidia Shield (Android Jelly Bean 4.3) for using the device when paired to a bigger screen with an HDMI cable. Touch pad on the keyboard worked right out of the box, and I can so far access all of the same functions I could from the Shield's own touchscreen. I haven't needed to customize any inputs yet. Perfect for playing slower games or running the Shield as an email terminal, Web browser, or Netflix head on a larger screen. A photo of my setup has been uploaded in the Customer Images. No problems with quality, or the on/off switch either. Maybe I got lucky or this has been fixed?

    Surprised at the range of this Blutooth Keyboard, April 15, 2013

    This review is from: QQ-Tech Mini Bluetooth Keyboard W Touchpad for Android OS Windows (Electronics)
    I've ordered and used 4 of these little wireless keyboards in the past year. The first one was an RF keyboard that came with its own USB RF connector. That was very handy as I didn't need to do anything special; however, the keyboard died after 6 months. I bought another RF keyboard, but this time it had a "pointer" style mouse which I did not like so I ordered this keyboard.

    First of all, I was SHOCKED that the Blu-tooth range was this good. I can easily type from my kitchen with no missing keystrokes (about 30 ft, no walls). Compared the the two RF keyboards, that's in increase of ~ 10-15 feet.

    Two downsides which I can live with:
    1) If the keyboard sits a while the first keystroke will not register. I'm guessing the little guy wakes up on that first key, but I haven't tested extensively.
    2) I had to purchase a blu-tooth USB adapter for another $7. I ordered the keyboard thinking it had everything I needed, but I was wrong. If your device already has blu-tooth, this isn't an issue for you. If you don't already have blu-tooth, then realize you'll need to go buy a little USB adapter (you can find them on ebay from china for $1 each or pay $7 from amazon like I did).

    This keyboard has nice feedback, May 22, 2013

    Customer Video Review Length:: 1:21 Mins

    QQ-tech keyboard is 6 3/8" wide and 2 3/4" wide. It weighs 2.8 oz on my digital postal scale. Each key is 1/4" wide and 1/4" tall. This keyboard has individual keys made out of hard plastic. Despite the small size I found that my typing accuracy is pretty good, I have yet to hit a key I did not mean to strike. The keyboard has a very nice feedback: the click feels good and you hear it. I am using this keyboard with my Samsung Galaxy 7.7 tablet. I found that I type much faster using it than on screen keyboard, especially when I have to mix letters and numbers in the text. Pairing is remembered from previous sessions even when I turn off the keyboard and the device.

    The touchpad is sensitive and responds well, however with the tablet's touch screen I find that it is easier to touch the screen rather than to use the touchpad on the keyboard. However for the use with non-touch screen devices I would use it with no issues.

    I am attaching a video which shows pairing with my Samsung Galaxy 7.7 Android tablet and then typing some text. What is particularly nice is that some application do not display on screen keyboard, so you get the benefit of the entire screen containing the information without being covered by on screen keyboard. Some applications still display on screen keyboard even when the QQ-tech keyboard paired with the device, so it depends if the application developer anticipated bluetooth keyboard use or not.

    I end the video showing the backlight function of the keyboard. It is turned on by hitting a key that looks like a yellow sun on the top row. As you see in the video this works really well.

    I am also attaching a collage of two photos, which show the keyboard next to a ruler as well next to my finger for a size reference. The photos can be located by following 'customer photos' link under the main photo.

    I received a QQ-tech keyboard for testing and review (be it positive or negative) from the manufacturer. I hope the video will help you set your expectations.

    Overall, I am quite pleased with this keyboard. The only thing the I wish that came with it is a little carrying pouch as this little keyboard will be doing a lot of travelling with me.
