Corsair Vengeance M65 Laser FPS Gaming Mouse CH-9000022-NA Gunmetal Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 8200 dpi Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This mouse is the best mouse ever.
1. It's only 59.99
2. It doesn't have a ton of fancy buttons.
3. It does have a "aim helper" button

I bought this to replace a R.A.T. 7 which is the worst mouse in existence. This corsair on the other hand is amazingly great. It has nice feels in the hand and is weighted perfectly (and you can change the weights if you don't like it). The on the fly dpi change buttons work. The "aim assist" or whatever you want to call it works great. BOOM HEADSHOT.

Construction is solid, it doesn't feel like it will break at any point in the future. 15

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Very happy with this mouse as a replacement to my old annoying rat. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a mouse.

Logitech Z506 75 watts 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs muuuuuuusic 07/03/2014

This review is from: Logitech Z506 75 watts 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers

Pros: Love the sound out of this. Loud and crisp, Logitech knows whats up. The price is completely reasonable for 5.1 system. The bass is nice and deep especially from such a small box. It worked out perfect because it fits in the cavity behind my desk so it is very well hidden.

Cons: It's refurbished so someone else has touched it. DON'T TOUCH MY THINGS. Other than that It has performed well.

Other Thoughts: Great deal even though it is refurbished, there haven't been any flaws. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good 5.1 setup at a low cost.

BUFFALO MiniStation Air 1TB USB 3.0 / WIFI Wireless Mobile Storage HDW-PD1.0U3
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This device is great! The setup process is very easy (Plug and Play on PC) and connecting to a mobile device is painless. Truthfully, I was expecting to have a harder time, but Buffalo did a great job and preventing headaches. 1. Charge the device, 2. Transfer files from PC, 3. Install mobile app for iPhone or Android, 4. connect to the device, 5. There is no step five, you're done!

The overall design of the device is visually appealing and it feels quite rugged (see cons note 1.)

The app is surprisingly good (only tested android). The built in file explorer is nice so you can view everything that is on the drive and on your phone for easy file transfer. The controls are intuitive so you don't have to do much guessing as to how to do something. Video streaming is flawless so if you have a movie on the drive there is no problem. There is no native support for .MKV, .M4V and a few other file types. There is however a way to stream to another app (not intuitive control on this one, it looks like a file folder) so you can play them with your preferred video app.

This drive will charge via the AC plug or the usb port when plugged in (see note 2 in cons) and can be charged while WiFi is on, but cannot be plugged into a computer.

The app allows you to change settings on the hard drive, like power modes and has the option to put the drive into standby mode when nothing is being transferred. Great way to save battery! You can also power off your drive from your phone, and change the wifi ssid and password. You can also search for firmware right from the app and update the drive. Super painless!

The last feature that I really love is the ability to charge another device with the airstation. You can just plug your phone right into it and leech some extra power off it! (see cons note 3)

Cons: Note 1 - While the overall feel of the case is rugged it is made out of plastic and looks as though it would scratch fairly easily over time. At $199 I would prefer to see the use of metals which would offer additional protection and scratch resistance.

Note 2 - WiFi will NOT stay connected when plugged into USB port on the PC. If you want to charge and stream then it must be connected with the AC adapter.

Note 3 - Can't charge a Note II because it requires 2.1A @ 5v which is apparently outside what this device can provide.

USB Transfer speeds are around 29Mbps.. which is not terrible, but is not what I was expecting from USB 3.0. Speeds should be at least twice that.

Minus one egg for the above listed issues and because the price point on this device is very high. $169 seems like a bit of a stretch for this.

The device get's very warm when in use!

Other Thoughts: I think this is a great little device. The price is kind of steep when you consider a 1TB 2.5" drive is around $60-$70.

If you were looking for a way to stream videos to your phone (and not use your data connection) I would definitely recommend this device (if you have an extra $169 to burn)
