This review is from: Logitech G5 7 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Laser 2000 dpi Mouse
Pros: Works ok when it is working.
Cons: The wire sheath starts to fray after a few months of use. The mouse turns off buy itself every now and then. It happens regardless of what I am doing. I can be surfing the web, typing up some homework or playing a game and it would just shut off. I just unplug it and replug it into the USB port. Sometimes it stops working within the minute. Very annoying.
Other Thoughts: I've built my own computer for 10+ years and used to be an avid FPS, RTS and MMO gamer. I've had the MX510 for years before I gave it away. It worked perfectly throughout the years I had my previous laptop. I also bought the MX518 for my current laptop. I now use the MX518 on my desktop. To me the rubber wire sheath feels softer and does not trap dust as much as the nylon one on the G5. And so far I don't have any issues with my MX518 shutting off on me.
The G5 has a lot of fancy features such as weights etc. But what matters the features if it doesn't even work.
This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7128G Wireless Card IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
Pros: Excellent connectivity with the router. No stability or driver problems (using WinXP Pro).
Cons: The antenna and long antenna cable creates more clutter and can get in your way.
Other Thoughts: My desktop is only about 30 feet away from the Router. I do close the door but I don't think there is enough obstruction or distance to actually put this NIC to the test.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Had this processor for about a month. Initially I made the mistake of using the stock heat sink grease along with the stock heat sink. It would overheat in a matter of minutes going up to temperatures of 110 degrees Celsius before crashing. After I wiped off the stock grease and put on some arctic silver, the temperature generally will not go above 60 degrees even during heavy use. I'm still using stock heat sink and it works fine.
Cons: Wipe off the stock grease on the bottom of the heat sink.
Other Thoughts: I have never used stock heat sink grease before and wanted to try it out. I'm relieved that I didn't burn out my processor and motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
