This review is from: Logitech V450 Nano Black 3 Buttons Tilt Wheel 2.4 GHz Cordless Laser Mouse
Pros: This is without a doubt the best mouse I have ever used. The Nano receiver is outstanding. It's tiny, sticks out of the USB port less than half an inch, and provides incredible range. It can also be stored inside the mouse. It doesn't suffer from any interference, even with two Xbox 360 controllers and my phone being used in the same room, all of which are 2.4GHz The laser tracking is equally outstanding, way better than the MS optical mice I have previously used. It tracks great on every surface I have tried it on. The size is just right and it's got some weight, which I like. The power button is a nice touch. It's a simple 3 button mouse that doesn't require drivers (but you can download them if you want), and XP/Vista recognize it without problems. The glossy black finish is sexy and a perfect match for my Asus EEE PC. And finally, believe it or not, the AA batteries are actually included!
Cons: The scroll wheel sounds kind of cheap as it turns. It would be nice if the mouse would automatically turn off when the computer is shut down. Requires 2 AA batteries. To be fair, I don't think any of those things are "real" cons. I think it's a pretty much flawless mouse, I was just trying to think of something the most nit-picky person might say.
Other Thoughts: This mouse isn't exactly inexpensive, but it wouldn't be fair to say price is a con, because you definitely get what you pay for. The tiny receiver and awesome tracking make this worth every penny. I wish I would have got this a long time ago. I will never use another cheesy MS optical mouse with a huge two inch receiver again!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This Transcend RAM is a great deal! It's working flawlessly. The very low price and the performance gains make this a great investment. I can't say that the difference in performance in my EEE PC is night and day, but it's noticeably quicker, and it's nice knowing the extra resources are there if I need it. If you're running Vista and/or memory hungry apps, the improvement will be that much more noticeable.
Cons: There really are no cons. Just make sure that this chip is compatible with your PC and you'll be good to go...
Other Thoughts: I bought this for my Asus EEE PC 900HA with Windows XP. Installation was simple! On your first bootup after installing, run the BIOS (F2) before Windows starts. It will show that you have 2048MB of RAM. Exit and enjoy. Windows will not recognize the extra memory on my EEE without booting the BIOS first. This is my first experience with Transcend and I'm very happy. If I need to upgrade memory in my desktop or full size laptop, I will definitely consider Transcend in the future!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Extreme III 4GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model SDCFX3-004G-A31
Pros: This CF card is outstanding! It's exactly what you can expect from SanDisk. This card is very fast, very reliable, cheap and compatible with everything. The only CF and SD cards I use are Sandisk because I have 10 of their memory cards and have never had a single problem with any of them. Over the years my cards have been subjected to temperature extremes and countless formatting and have never let me down. There's a reason why pros use them - they are simply the best! In my 10MP Rebel XTi I get over 1000 top quality jpeg shots at ISO 100 and over 700 at ISO 1600. The camera writes, reads, and formats this card extremely fast! It's perfect for a DSLR or anything else for that matter. File transfers on PC are also very fast. If you're looking for a CF card, this is the one to get. It's rock solid.
Cons: There are truly zero cons!
Other Thoughts: With SDHC gaining popularity, I can't help but wonder if Compact Flash will become obsolete. Either way, flash memory prices are falling fast, and SanDisk is still the very best, regardless of format. And of course, Neweggs prices, service and shipping are top notch, too!READ FULL REVIEW
