Cyborg R.A.T.7 Infection CCB437080020/04/1 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very good tracking in FPS games when its working properly.

Cons: Occasionally the mouse glitches out and I end up staring 90 degrees up into the sky or -90 degrees into the ground. Very frustrating.

Other Thoughts: Never happened with the g9 this was supposed to replace.

TRENDnet TEW-687GA N450 Wireless Gaming Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n Ethernet Port Up to 450Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very good while it lasted. Ping and download speeds matching a wired connection getting the full 50 Mbps from my ISP

Cons: Became flaky after 3 weeks of use. Internet connection would drop out every day or so and windows would show that I was connected to an unknown network.

Access to the configuration page for the adapter was a a crapshoot, most of the time my web browser couldn't find the page even though the computer light on the adapter was lit.

At first I was able to fix this by hard resting the router and reconfiguring it, now I'm not even able to do that. RMA time.

SAMSUNG 470 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Installed on a Lenovo X201 Tablet notebook without issue. BIOS picked it up right away, windows installation went smoothly from USB stick. Windows start-up is around 15 seconds, resume from sleep around 5 seconds. Everything is more responsive than it was with the stock hard drive.

Benchmark peaks at around 260/260MB/s read and write, higher than manufacturer spec, but still slower than most SF-1200 based drives.

Cons: - No noticeable improvement in battery life. X201 Tablet /w i7 640LM and enhanced multitouch gets about 5 hours on a full 8-cell.

- More expensive than other recently released drives.

Other Thoughts: I took a risk on this untested, just released SSD because of it's manufacturer spec low power consumption of .14w idle .25w load. I'm not sure how accurate those numbers are, the other well-known brand drive with advertised power consumption of 75mW-150mW is .4-2.6W in actuality...
