Pros: Big size, good price.
Good return policy? (I hope)
Cons: Sorta recognized by the OS, but I/O error when trying to initialize. Tried multiple SATA ports on both controllers on my Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H motherboard, plus my external USB-to-SATA adapter. No luck with any of them
Other Thoughts: From other reviews, it seems like these are either dead almost instantly or work fine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The case fits securely, kickstand is good for when you have a flat surface. The magnets that hold the keyboard in place work perfectly. It's easy to get to the S-Pen and MicroSD ports. Closing the case sleeps the tablet and opening wakes it exactly as it should.
Cons: Big one - Samsung doesn't like the keyboard. It drops its connection after about 5 seconds of not typing. The keyboard works flawlessly with my Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.
The kickstand is worthless on a lap.
Other Thoughts: The keyboard is still useful as a counterweight when draping it over knees when you sit with your legs at an angle when in bed or on a couch, but until Samsung fixes their bluetooth stack, this doesn't live up to the potential. Until that happens, I'd suggest buying a keyboard-less version.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech V470 Blue 3 Buttons Tilt Wheel Cordless Laser Notebook Mouse for Bluetooth
Pros: #1 - Bluetooth + laser means no dongle to deal with and gaming-grade precision.
I picked this up to replace my non-laser optical mouse (also Logitech) and am very surprised at the precision this tracks on any flat surface I've thrown at it. There is no need to pack a mouse pad while traveling any more.
The one-piece, smooth top and mildly rubberized sides give a comfortable feel. The texture on the scroll wheel lets you scroll without putting pressure undue pressure on the wheel, which allows the wheel/middle click to not require an inordinate amount of pressure which causes motion in other mice. Similarly, the wheel left and right can usually be accomplished without motion of the mouse as well.
Cons: I have grown accustomed to the thumb buttons on my mice, and wish this had one.
The mouse goes to ready-mode after a minute or two of non-use. Causing it to "jump" a bit when you start moving it. A non-issue 99% of the time, but be aware that it will happen. I'd like an always on setting myself, since it does have a physical power switch.
Other Thoughts: Microsoft has an equivalent bluetooth laser mouse, but I've always been impressed with Logitech's quality and commitment to their products. I've been using them for almost 15 years now, and only replaced them in order to upgrade for new features (wheel, optical, laser, wireless, bluetooth) never for failure of the product.READ FULL REVIEW
