This review is from: Logitech Performance Mouse MX
Pros: The Unifying Receiver is a good feature when you have multiple products and it is out of the way for those with netbooks or just don't want it to be seen. Most buttons are customizable, Mouse1 and Mouse2 are only swappable. Rechargeable battery lasts 7-10 days with 6 hour work-days. The Darkfield tracking works wonders on most glass surfaces. I find it works surprisingly well on bedding and pant legs but it doesn't like sand so much...
Cons: I still find the Logitech software to be annoying and buggy at best. It's a shame that it is not compatible with Linux. Those without the software installed will notice that there is no way to modify the button layouts (with exception to the OS & Key Bindings) and no battery notification reminder. The only Battery Notification that you will get is thanks to the LED on the mouse itself. (It will blink red before it dies)
Other Thoughts: I bought this mouse as a trackpad replacement THREE YEARS ago for my deployment laptop. Three deployments later, thousands of miles traveled, working & living in the most extreme conditions imaginable; this mouse still holds on and still performs like it was new. I haven't even thought about retiring this mouse for an updated version, I will keep it until it no longer fuctions properly, and if the next 3 years are like the last 3 years, I will have this mouse for a very long time to come.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: C2G 27185 25ft Cat6 550 MHz Snagless Patch Cable - Red
Pros: Heavily shielded and work well for 1GB/s intranets or private LANs.
Cons: Out of the 4 that I purchased, 1 was a bad cable and would periodically connect/disconnect a computer from the network; I thought it was an issue with either my computer or the new router, but instead it was a short somewhere in the cable; move it an inch up and it works, drop it an inch down and it won't work. For an expensive cable you'd think they'd have a better quality control process. Doesn't take much for someone to sit and test the ends.
Other Thoughts: Bought 4 of these for my private LAN, color coordinating my wires as I build the network.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Wonderful monitor to have, big usable display space through DisplayPort and bright enough. I have not had any dead pixels through the 3 that I have bought 6 months apart. PnP, even Linux X-Server found the appropriate drivers to support a 1080p connection through DisplayPort. They also play nicely with older BIOS and the new UEFI.
Cons: Moderate sized foot-print on the desk and feels wobbly at times when you're moving it. Non-adjustable stand makes it hard to see the entire detail of this monitor depending on your desk/chair height. Only ONE DisplayPort connection
Other Thoughts: It's a 27", 1ms GTG, Single DisplayPort, LED, Full-HD Monitor (I doubt it supports G-Sync). I originally bought one after wading through the monitor market for 6 months on a deployment to Afghanistan. I only had 3 weeks to really get to know the monitor and, despite it's moderate circular foot-print (spans more to the rear than anything), working with and on it was a blast. When I got home the next time, I had bought myself 2 more for my other computers and I will say that they look pretty sitting there. With a month of vacation, one of the monitors was used as a web-browsing/text displaying monitor (and the occasional movie) while the other 2 were used for gaming, and man they were astounding.READ FULL REVIEW
