Logitech Performance Mouse MX
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Best Mouse Ever Used 08/05/2010

This review is from: Logitech Performance Mouse MX

Pros: -Hands down the most ergonomic mouse I've ever had the pleasure of using.
-Battery life is very good, in a work environment I plug it in (with included micro-USB) adapter during half a work day, once a week. It has never died on me.
-Uses NiMH batteries, not a special battery back. The batteries it comes with are Eneloop Sanyo, known for being very high quality batteries.
-Side buttons are great. I have the document-switcher mapped to ctrl+tab for going b/w website tabs and the zoom mapped to ctrl+t for closing tabs. Its amazing how fast I got used to navigating that way (I am on the web all day). The side buttons feel extremely natural.
-Ability to switch the mouse into ultra-fast scrolling is nice if you work with any long documents like a spreadsheet. Note that the scrolling is EXTREMELY fast in this mode, perhaps too fast.

Cons: While this is a near perfect mouse, there are a few cons or items that could be improved in a future model. None of them I feel deserves an egg in the rating to be removed, because really these are all nit-picky things that don't impact the mouse usage.
-The middle click is somewhat hard to press. If you do a lot of tabbed browsing and open links in tabs with middle click, it will take some getting used to.
-The mouse sliding "feet" don't seem to hold up great. They show a lot of wear and I occasionally get black specks on my work table from where it is peeling away. Perhaps the desk is to blame. I am not concerned that it is or will cause any interference with performance.

Other Thoughts: A few interesting things from other reviews I read:
-Someone claimed they die after 2 years - mouse isn't 2 years old so I would discredit that.
-Another negative review stated they hated the fact it used a "proprietary" Logitech cable. This uses the extremely standard micro-USB cable. it comes with a cable, USB-AC adapter.
-The LED lights that indicate battery don't seem to ever light up? Perhaps thats the way I have mine configured.

BELKIN F5U237v1 Hi-Speed USB 2.0 7-Port Hub
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great, Cheap, Dependable! 05/31/2009

This review is from: BELKIN F5U237v1 Hi-Speed USB 2.0 7-Port Hub

Pros: -Stackable (I own two)
-The two ports on top are great for thumb drives or things with odd USB shapes (like wireless mouse receivers)
-LED lights are bright
-I really like the flat design
-Seems pretty fast with external hard drives

Cons: -Its too light, sometimes they are easy to scoot off the edge of your desk. Course, if they made them heavy, people would complain they are heavy!

Other Thoughts: I have owned two of these and used them daily. Originally they were in a work environment that had all 14 ports taken up and used hourly. After we got one big hub, I took these puppies home and have been using one of them daily for my 500gb external hard drive and a keyboard and mouse. They work great.

Nippon Labs Model ADT-HDMIM HDMI to DVI Adapter HDMI /MALE(19 PINS) DVI/FEMALE(24+1PINS)

2 out of 5 eggs Not The Most "Common" Kind of DVI 05/31/2009

This review is from: Nippon Labs Model ADT-HDMIM HDMI to DVI Adapter HDMI /MALE(19 PINS) DVI/FEMALE(24+1PINS)

Pros: Cheap! Has a LED light so you know when it is plugged in.

Cons: Will not work with DVI-A, so if your using a VGA-to-DVI adapter, you uh, can't with most adapters.

It won't work with DVI-I, dual or single.

It WILL work with DVI-D, dual or signal.

If you don't understand what this means, wikipedia it and check your cables before doing anything dumb like I did.

Other Thoughts: I guess I assumed DVI-A would work. I learned a valuable lesson to check first and not to assume.
