This review is from: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000
Pros: Read below...
Cons: After about a month of using this keyboard, it finally pushed me to the point of snapping. Its feedback is too "spongy" and the keys are too close together, causing too many typos. After cutting it in tiny pieces with my band saw in the garage, I feel much better about my purchase now. My cat also enjoys chasing the usb cable around that I cut off of it. It could have been a much better keyboard with better design, but coming from the people who gave us windows 8, I'm not surprised that it only lasted 1 month before ending up in the garbage. There are many good reviews on this keyboard. Compared to previous keyboards that I've owned, I'd have to object to all of those reviews. The only reason I give it more than 1 star is becuase of the joy my cat finds in the usb cable. I love my cat.
Other Thoughts: Microsoft can do better than this. I'd rather buy a $100+ dollar keyboard that works well and lasts for years to come, than a $40 keyboard that ends up trash after a month because of poor craftsmanship.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PLANTRONICS Voyager Pro HD Black Bluetooth Headset
Pros: I didn't buy this at newegg, but I've owned 2 of these headsets for almost a year. Battery life rocks, and charges quickly from almost dead to 3 hours of talk time in under 30 minutes. Connects to 2 devices! Good for a cell phone, and maybe a soft phone on a computer.
Cons: Soft rubber housing on mine started to bubble, and eventually completely came off. My 2nd headset however never did this and is still going strong to this day. Maybe it was left in the car with the windows rolled up on a hot summer day that did it... who knows. But I have to purchase a new one now because of this.
Battery life is also very misleading. It will say after a 30 minute charge that I have 6 hours of talk time remaining. LIES!! It's not bad though, cause I can get a little over 3 hours out of it.
Other Thoughts: I like this headset so much that I don't mind buying another one due to the damage that happened to it. I'll buy it from newegg this time though and save some $$$!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Okay overall image quality... in the daylight. Large resolution images.
Cons: The most awful GUI setup experience you'll ever encounter. Took hours to try to get motion detection to work, and it's still very buggy. VERY unfriendly user interface. You have to enable motion detection, then setup a profile for motion detection, then setup an event setting, then setup the server setting, the setup the media setting, then setup the trigger event setting, then you only have 20 seconds of recording or 5 meg per video posibille per detected motion event. I've got 5 TB of recording storage. I'd like to record as much as I'd like, thank you. A measly 20 seconds of recording is worthless. I'm looking forward to a LOT of changes in the next firmware upgrade. 99% of the problems I'm encountering can be fixed. I would NOT purchase another one of these with these bugs. Also, when the IR LED's are turned on, there's a horrible reflection that is created in the plastic dome, which makes any images being recorded almost worthless. You can't see anything when the IR is enabled
Other Thoughts: Think twice before purchasing this camera. It's not that great in the dark. If you took the dome off, it would be much better, but then you loose your weather proofing. NOT worth the almost $700 for a measly 2 megapixel IP camera. It should be more like 8 MP. My $150 cell phone has a 8MP camera. Very disappointed Toshiba!READ FULL REVIEW
