I love Kickstarter. I've backed a few projects and while I did lose out on one project the rest have delivered on time and as ordered. As with any crowdfunding you should always be cautious and think before you pledge. Check out the project creator to see if they've had any successful projects. I tend to wait until the project is mostly funded before pledging. Projects that have a high cost should be scrutinized closely especially, tech projects. They may have a great looking and functioning prototype but that's a far cry from sourcing large quantities of materials, manufacturing, and shipping.
While you want to be smart with your money don't let the thought of a failed project deter you. The vast majority of funded projects ship out to the backers some even go onto create other great products that Kickstarter's get first crack at. The perks are you get to be on the bleeding edge of a new product at a great discount.
This is intended to be a continuous running list of projects I discover.
