This review is from: Razer Naga MMO Gaming Mouse
Pros: Great quality, reasonable price, enough buttons to operate multiple TS whisper channels and in-game voice channels.
Cons: Thumb buttons requires too little force to push.
You basically cannot lift the mouse with thumb on 1 or 2 buttons and pinkie on the other side, and not press down a thumb button.
By comparison, the G600's thumb button has much greater resistance that you can lift the mouse anyway you want without pressing the thumb button down by mistake. However, G600's build quality is somewhat questionable.
Other Thoughts: This is a great mouse if you don't put much force on you thumb when you don't intend to press the thumb buttons.
It would work well for slow paced RPG games, but not for intense FPS or RTS games where the thumb buttons can easily be pressed by mistake in an intense fight.
This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail
Pros: High Quality: Although not mechanical, this one still has a high quality that lasts for years ( I bought it in 2010 and am still using it now). -well, the paint does come off a bit on S, A, D, and Shift keys, which I press with my nails.
Special programmable keys aren't useful to me most of the times, but they're still an option available.
No key conflict: better than x6 at least.
Relatively quiet keybaord.
Almost standard keyboard - no difficulty finding Insert/Home/PgUp and Delete/End/PgDn.
Cons: Paint does come off after 3 years of scratching.
Uselessly long space-bar.
Missing Right Windows key.
Narrow Esc, F1~F12 keys - although layout is standard, some may find these narrow keys not comfortable for WoW.
Note: this is one of most Microsoft programmable keyboards that have compatibility issue with Raspberry Pi (Wheezy). But it doesn't have problem with PC Linux.
Other Thoughts: Basically one of the best non-mechanical keyboards you can find.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Midnight Blue 3G Unlocked GSM Android OS Smart Phone w/ 4.2" Multi-Touch Reality Display / Mobile BRAVIA Engine / 8.1 MP w/HD Video Capture / Bluetooth v2.1 w/A2DP (LT15a)
Pros: Big Bright Screen
Very Thin and Light
Newegg's phone should run faster than those from Rogers or other carriers - those phones come with XX Lock, OO Lock, and tons of Running services/apps you CANNOT kill and remove.
in one line: too light too small
Battery capacity can't support full brightness and long time use.
Even at low brightness and BRAVIA off, the battery still can't support intensive gaming or web browsing.
Unless you charge it during the day, you'll probably run out of battery at 7pm, assuming your day starts at 8am.
(or if you use it like using a digital camera, then you run out at 2pm)
in one word: fragile
Screen surface is obviously softer than dust or sand. I got deep scratches on screen by wiping dust off it during my first week of use.
The speaker and loudspeaker aren't loud enough.
When people are upgrading to 2.3.6, you're getting 2.3.3 "latest" update from Sony.
OK for single app; very very bad for multiple services.
Run gmail, google map, skype, facebook, a browser with 3~4 tabs, play music. Then you want to make a phone call? please wait for 10++ seconds for the dial p
Other Thoughts: Cons continued:
I know there is a SD card you can save XX GB.
But a lager internal storage is really needed:
1. Many apps can't be moved to SD card.
2. More unused internal space means faster app switch, since it can be used to swap apps out of RAM.
I can see from the product design, sony wanted something that outperforms iphone4 on spec chart.
Xperia arc indeed does so: bigger , thinner, lighter, cheaper, than the iPhone4.
However, the bad choice of material and insufficient battery means this phone is only good for
Who always has a USB power source, never goes into dusty environment, and buys protective gears for the phone.
Who doesn't use it, or only uses it as a PHONE ( so why don't buy a cheaper, old-fashioned Nokia)?
Nevertheless, xperia arc is one of the best "smart"phones available at the price range.
But if you just want something to play with, for a $549.99 budget, I suggest you buy a 499 iPad2 or $299 PS Vita
