This review is from: Corsair Vengeance MM400 CH-9000016-WW Hard Plastic Gaming Mouse Mat
Pros: Smooth glide
Works well with high DPI mice
Cons: Dirt and dust becomes a noticeable problem.
Does not stay put well
Other Thoughts: Keep this mouse pad clean. Every speck of dirt can be felt when using this pad, which is annoying. Even so it is worth the performance gains. The mouse pad will slide around if the base is not cleaned off every now and then if you are using it on a glass surface. Sliding is not much of an issue on a wooden desk.
I did notice that my mouse became more comfortable to use, and my DPI settings had to be lowered a bit not that the laser can pick up the pad much better.
I would like to see corsair use a material that repels dirt better. This one is okay, but dirt is still there. I would buy this again.
This review is from: Rosewill RHB-330 7 Ports USB 2.0 Hub with Power Adapter
Pros: Works with usb flash drives. The magnetic base is nice.
Cons: Does not work well with non flash drive devices. iPod classic, Logitech wireless headset, and a Olympus voice recorder being some of the devices that I have had issues with.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Plextor M5S Series PX-256M5S 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: The Plextool works well to diagnose download firmware updates, however does not install the firmware.
Cons: Writes about 3-7GB and then stops working.
Other Thoughts: Out of the box this drive was nothing but trouble. Would not hold an OS or anything. Tried different cables, tried formatting and updating the firmware. Btw the firmware update is done by a liveboot of linux. I eventually downloaded the utilities from plextor and found out that my drive was dead. Furthermore, the alerts in the tool and the manual is very poorly translated English. After the first laugh or two it gets quite annoying.
I'm going to see about getting a replacement. However seeing how the company said "The M5S SSD goes through the rigorous tests and is of the highest quality. Plextor’s exacting requirements for quality control mean that all SSDs must meet high standards and expectation." I don't believe I will give them more than 3 stars depending on how well it works when I get a replacement. Very disappointing so far.
