GIGABYTE M6800 GM-M6800 Noble Black 4 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1600 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Feels nice
none of that hyper scroll junk
no bright annoying leds
shielded usb cable
has a 2 year warranty (more than normal for a mouse)

Cons: made to last about the length of the warranty
mouse buttons (the internal momentary button) is rated for 2mill clicks, since you use the left click button more than others it will fail 1st, in my case it lasted 2.5 years (only mouse i ever had fail)

The USB cable does not follow the color code, so if you try to re-purpose it it can be annoying
my me
+5 was orange
D- was green
D+ was blue
+0 was white

Other Thoughts: when i replaced this my mouse cable was 2ft short so i made the old cable into a extension rather ran rerun a wire though a tiny hole full of wire that a plug does no longer fits through and a lot of zip ties, that is why i figured out the which color wire was which

i got this as a Christmas gift a couple years back

If the manufacture ever reads this change the left mouse momentary button to a higher grade one, say one rated for 3m clicks, that way all the button will start to fail about the same time, oh and if you could not put the screws under the glide pads that would be great

to replace this i got a red Cobra Jr. E-3lue mouse that was 6.99 (red led is not as annoying as i expected)

i found 1600dpi to be too fast to be usable, so i mainly used 800dpi till i bothered to change my mouse settings to slow it down to 1/2 speed

5 out of 5 eggs Working good 06/29/2015

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter

Pros: Gets a stable network connection
Works with my Raspberry Pi A+
low profile

Cons: long ping time
wireless N 150 is a bit dated to say the least
It acted up when i 1st powered the unit up (packet loss ~10%)
tested it on my laptop without issue, put it back in the pi and it worked fine
not free ;) cost me 6.99

Other Thoughts: I've had it running 4 days non-stop.
I don't need fast wifi from this just a stable connection ~6ft

it is a nano receiver don't expect much in the line of rage (you know antenna size)

ping test
100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 99165ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1.663/5.611/7.712/0.840 ms

iperf results (Pi -> wifi (WZR300HP, DDWTR #26424) -> wired Desktop)

[ 3] 0.0-10.1 sec 26.2 MBytes 21.9 Mbits/sec

I use Pis as low power headless servers, in this case as a DIY wifi thermostat

Rosewill RNX-N600PCE - Dual Band Wireless N600 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11b / 11g / 11n, Up to 300 Mbps (5.0 GHz) + 300 Mbps (2.4 GHz) Data Rates, PCI E Interface, 2 High Power Dual Band Antennas
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Works on windows 7

Cons: No modern Linux support, no go on linux 3.13 or 3.17

The only old support for this card requires compiling, the latest that seems to work with is linux 3.2 which is rather dated to say the least

Other Thoughts: Tried to help a friend get this card working on linux mint 17 (which is based on Ubuntu 14.04)

This card shows up as this in lspci:
Ralink corp. RT5592 PCIe Wireless Network Adapter
