This review is from: Delux Lijian M618 Wireless Vertical Mouse
Pros: It does as advertised. Causes a nice vertical position for the hand. Very solid in the hand. Has a "good quality" feel to the item. The ribbed plastic makes for a good grip. Palm rest is perfect.
Cons: For some reason the DPI button on top has to be repeatedly pressed. The thumb area is way too small. I don't have the biggest hands out there, but my thumb can feel each button constantly and I often click one of them by accident forcing me back and forth in the browser as well as some software.
You will need a slick mouse pad. Since it's your arm and not your wrist moving the mouse. Conventional pads have a tendency to "pause" or "stick" causing a slight jerk forward when trying to set the cursor on small buttons. I'm using the Insignia mouse pad and it seems to work well.
Other Thoughts: One more thing.. this pad is coming from Geek Panda. If you live in the USA, expect it to take all of 2 weeks. (16 days for me) and it will come in what appears to be Chinese lettering. So the instructions and such will be 100% unreadable. I had to search on YT to find out how to use the DPI button.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Blue Microphones - Yeti
Pros: sounds good
Cons: Durability IS a problem! I had to buy 2 mics. The first one died just past it's warranty, (1 yr?) and the next one died 2 weeks before the warranty expired (1 yr I hope) These things sound good.. but they are not built to last at all. YOU WILL experience problems with the usb connector I guarantee it. First one failed until you wiggled the wire and then you only got one side of the mic to work. the other, dead as a door nail no matter how much you try to get it to work. DO NOT waste your money. Worse yet, when I tried to get the first one replaced, the one they sent out was a different model, and it was DOA. I opted to go with the Yeti one to get the work done on time and now.. a year later.. back to square one. NOT GOOD! If I could I would give it ZERO EGGS.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: As the title suggests, I've always declared DLink was the best and setting up Dlink routers is always a snap. Childishly easy in fact. When you have an issue, Dlink tech support is very helpful. However, expect to wait 20+ minutes to get someone on the phone.
Cons: I bought this router to replace my old 804. Which by the way still runs just fine after many years of running 5 websites and an audio chat room. One month after setting it up it simply stopped all online access out of the blue. I don't use the wireless portion so this happened while hard wired. VERY annoying in that it happened after midnight and took 2 or 3 hours to find the problem, and that was only after I gave up and called Dlink. (and waited 25 mins on hold) Turns out I had to factory reset the router and manually replace ALL my settings. All 10 ports, MTU, WAN configs, ALL of it. The so called "config backup" does not work at all. Once I did factory reset and added my basic connection settings I was back online. So I re-loaded the config backup and BAM offline again! So.. I did a factory reset again, then proceeded to add each port, one by one and then REBOOT AND WAIT 60 secs after each setting was entered.
I truly hope this problem was a fluke and it doesn't happen again. If after a few months with no issues I will repost a more EGGciting comment.
PS.. and Newegg is ALWAYS #1
Other Thoughts: Hoping Dlink gets their act together soon. All their old routers worked fine. But now we need gigabit and so far, I don't see much to choose from.READ FULL REVIEW
