tilt-wheel with 'hyperscroll'
Cons: LMB\RMB switches fail after moderate use
Other Thoughts: This is the second G500 I'm on. The first failed within a year of use--the LMB stops registering clicks properly. It will either double-click when a single click was used, or not 'hold' the click when the button is pressed down.
Since these mice carry 3-year warranties, I contacted Logitech when the first one failed. They just up and sent me a new one without even asking for the old one back. That _have_ to know it's an issue at that point. I'm guessing, based on Logitech's website, that the G500 was redesigned into the G500S and hopefully it's fixed. However, this model, with the red LEDs, is prone to malfunctioning.
I'm now in the market for a new mouse, and it's not going to be the G500.
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme N Dual-Band Gigabit Router (DIR-825) Wireless N600
Pros: I honestly can't think of one.
Cons: Customer Service is an atrocity against man.
Reliability is shorter than ownership of product.
Other Thoughts: This isn't my first tragic rodeo with D-Link devices. This is now the third router I've had to replace for someone. I don't even want to imagine they spent $100+ on this junk.
Worked for all of a week before I receive a call stating that it wouldn't work anymore. After arriving at the location to inspect the device, the familiar scent of burning electronics was in the air.
That is shorter than the two months the previous router I serviced from D-Link lasted.
And you know what, I could accept manufacturing defects in a product--it happens--but completely ignoring your customer's requests for assistance?
I submitted a ticket to D-Link, and only receive a half-a---d reply on it. When I requested further support from that reply--they never bothered. I submitted an additional ticket when no one assisted me, just to have them completely ignore that one.
Just stay away from 'em. I would have to say pretty much any other company is probably going to be better than D-Link. Save yourself from a headache now, get your wireless from someone else.
Pros: - Two 2.5" bays.
- Doesn't _need_ screws to hold drives.
- reliable drive detection
- independent SATA connections
Cons: - independent SATA connections
Other Thoughts: I used this exact model for around six months while I was employed for a computer repair center. We had a custom server designed to do all of our malware sweeps, and this thing was rock-solid. I was unplugging and plugging in 2.5" drives five or six times a day on two of these units and not once was I concerned they were going to break.
The fit is snug enough that in the horizontal position, I never worried about the drives coming lose without screwing it in. This allowed rapid insert\removal of drives.
This was used in a workplace, so the lights never bothered me, but I can see the complaints--blue LEDs are very difficult for the eyes to adjust to, and they're -bright-.
Oh--and they don't use port-multiplication, they're two independent SATA cables--the bays are just pass-through, so they were fantastic for my line of work. However, if your drives are going to be a bit more 'long-term,' port multiplication probably would be a nice option.
