This review is from: Kensington K72352US Black RF Wireless Orbit Mobile Trackball
Pros: it's not a bad mouse,
Cons: I'm not a fan of the form factor. The ball is too small and the buttons are not optimally place
Other Thoughts: I usually buy logitech mice, going back a long time. Everytime I try Kensington, I'm disappointed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Case Logic DCB-309 Black SLR Camera Backpack
Pros: It's got quality construction.
Lots of pockets for everything
A rain poncho that is in a little zipper pocket on the lumbar, pulls all the way over the pack.
It's comfortable and sleek
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: I bought this because I just got a new Mac and needed a slimmer profile backpack, but one that could hold an SLR camera. When I saw the specs on this, I felt confident, but hoped it would fit everything. It arrived today and I wasn't disappointed. The Macbook pro slide right into it's own compartment. I dispensed with the velcro inserts and just stuffed my camera bag and flash in it's back right into it, it zipped up tight, and fit perfectly with no stretching. Then, I was able to put the ipad in the outside pocket.
I had bought Case Logic before and they did not disappointed. I'm so happy with it, I had to write this review
This review is from: Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE Infrared 35mm Film and Slide Scanner (60-A29-BBM310-C)
Pros: Seem like a solid-enough piece of hardware.
Scans at ridiculously high resolution.
Cons: The software is an abomination. It looks and feels like it was programmed using Visual Basic from 1994 for Windows 3.11 and hasn't been updated since.
It's really hard to determine "which way is up" when it comes to the way the emulsion side of the slide should be facing in the scanner.
Slower than advertised.
Other Thoughts: Does the job. Not an expensive piece of Hardware.
If you need to digitieold fading slides and negatives of yesteryear, this is good enough. Hire somebody to babysit it while it's working though because it is SLOOOOWW.
I've only done slide so far, not negatives yet.
