This review is from: Logitech MK345 920-006972X Black RF Wireless Standard Keyboard & Mouse
Pros: Took 3 working days to receive product.
Works perfectly. No issues at all.
Refurbished...I've been ordering product from Newegg for over 10 years with many being refurbished. From keyboards to PSU's to HDD's. Never had the slightest problem from any refurbished component. Last November I ordered a refurbished Samsung 27" monitor for my wife's computer from Newegg. That is one, if not the best monitor either of us has ever owned. In fact, if I could do it all over again, I would have ordered one for me as well.
This keyboard/mouse combo is used for our Toshiba laptop connected to our 46" Sanyo TV. We installed the 3 batteries, connected the USB RF transmitter and began using it. Works flawlessly.
Note: The keyboard requires 2 AAA batteries.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse combo to anyone who is looking for a excellent high quality product.
In the past, I've been a Microsoft keyboard/mouse fan but my favoritism is moving towards Logitech as every component we've ever purchased is still working perfectly.
My wife bought a Logitech keyboard/mouse combo from a competitor for her desktop computer around 3 years ago and it's still going strong.
Pros: I've been looking at a Mushkin drive for a long time as their reviews have been top notch. I've also noticed in these reviews, Mushkin is putting a high priority in customer service and satisfaction. When you see a Mushkin response to almost every review, that's raising the ladder to a new level. And that right there is a major reason I've been wanting one of their drives.
What will this drive be used for? Storage. I'm replacing all my mechanical drives.
What comes with the drive? Protective packaging. That's it. For me, that's fine. I knew that would be the case prior to purchase and I didn't need anything else anyway.
Cons: I'm already regretting not buying 2 when Newegg had them for $116.99.
Other Thoughts: First thing I did was make sure the Mushkin SSD was connected to a 6 gb/s SATA port along with a new and equally capable, SATA cable.
One reviewer said the Mushkin was a bit slower than the Samsung. Alright, I'll test it too but will do it in the real file transfer world.
Had 2 AVI video files to do the test. 1 was a 3.35gb and the other was a 12.6gb.
I have 3 SSD's. OS is on a Samsung 250gb 840 and the other is a SanDisk Ultra II 480gb used for storage.
I did my own version of a Round Robin test between all 3 drives. Transferring both video files back and forth to each drive in all possible directions. I used the timer on my cell phone. I didn't see any real difference. The difference amounted to less than 0.5 sec between all 3.
IF, the Mushkin is slower, the difference is almost imperceivable
Let's cut to the chase...The Mushkin is one fast drive when compared to the Samsung 840 and the SanDisk Ultra II.
I tried finding a 480 to 512gb at the price Newegg was selling them. I couldn't. I was mining for deals and looked everywhere.
Even with a small price increase Mushkin still remains at or near the top as the best bang for the buck.
The name Mushkin...If you're somewhat leary of the name Mushkin because it sounds like something straight out of the Wizard of Oz and they're a lark or 2nd rate. You couldn't be more wrong.
Bottom line...I'd HIGHLY recommend the Mushkin drive to anyone and everyone.
Would I buy another Mushkin? It's not a question of, would I, the real question is, when will I.
Thank you, Mushkin for a great SSD.
Pros: This will hold my 3rd SSD in my case. The other SSD bracket I have installed is full with 2 drives and was from a well known company. It too works excellent but doesn't come close to the Icy Dock.
Unfortunately, for me, I have a old, and I mean old, Lian Li full tower case. It's still a solid nice looking case but back in 2005 when I purchased it SSD's were something you only read about and drooled over. Case manufacturers didn't take them into consideration when they designed cases. My Icy Dock still had to have the metal side rails attached to fit properly. I knew that was going to happen and I always keep a spare set around.
I really like the way the drive slides in and securely locks. That is so nice.
It's not cheap or flimsy. One reviewer said the screws are tight going in and had to force them in. Yes, they were tight. It did require more effort than a regular screw but I didn't get the feeling the threads were being stipped out. Felt more like tight tolerances to me.
Another reviewer said the price was fair. Well DUH!! It cost less than $10. What more could you ask for? This isn't some cheap piece of junk.
Other Thoughts: I would, without the slightest hesitation, recommend this quality product to anyone.
Thank you, Icy Dock! Great quality product!
