This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive STCD500102 Black
Pros: Works efficiently and as advertised. Plug and play.
Cons: The accompanying USB cord is probably 12 inches long.
Other Thoughts: In the recent weeks I've had to unplug it and plug it back in in order for windows to see the drive. This is after 6 or so months of ownership.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have these paired with an ASUS Xonar Essence STX as well, and they are very pleasing to listen to. I see why these can's are advertised as having a more "natural" and "neutral" listening experience. They really shine on acoustic tracks and easily distinguish between the instruments and vocals. Electronica/trance/techno is very nice on these as well.
Just finished a few hours of Planetside 2, these + the xonar was worlds different from my onboard + HD 485 combo. Everything was so clear and these represented the explosions in the distance well.
Cons: Bass is a tad on the low side but that is adjustable if desired.
Other Thoughts: Very good cans for the beginning audiophile. I would argue the best you can get in the sub $500 market.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mionix Ensis 320 (000MIOEB) Black Brushed Aluminum Mouse Pad
Pros: Seems to work very well with the mionix NAOS 8200. I've never had any problems with a stuttering like response and the pad is the advertised 2mm of thickness. Also, it's bigger than I thought, taking up just about as much room as my previous mouse pad which was 12x12.
Cons: I use the mouse mostly in the "claw" hand style, but there appears to be small scratches starting to form. I've only owned this pad for about 3 days so this could be a concern 6 months or a year down the line (I don't put much, if any, pressure on the mouse when operating it).
Other Thoughts: If the endurance holds out for the next few years this will be an outstanding product. I already think it's very good just after a few days.READ FULL REVIEW
