Pros: Great screen, very clear. Nice size, lightweight. Has MicroSD and MiniHDMI ports!
Cons: Battery life is Meh.
Included AC adapter is a universal plug type and had issues with it (intermittent and slow charging). But I have tons of Micro USB chargers, you probably do too.
Had all kinds of app problems (apps wouldn't install right, would go into loops and LA-LA land, apps crashing, etc) until I updated to the newest Android update / Kitkat. See below.
Other Thoughts: First thing out of the box, charge it up (mine came with a totally dead battery). The included AC adapter is kind of flaky, I used my phone charger.
Once charged up a bit, do this android update FIRST! Follow the instructions.
Once I updated android, all my app problems went away. Good thing too, this puppy almost got returned for refund.
This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Combo (Blue LED Model)
Pros: Great price when on sale (plus a rebate). Keyboard lights up pretty brightly in a deep blue. The mouse has some blue LED lighting too. Keys don't feel too bad for a cheaper keyboard, and it has some heft/weight to it so it's not going to slide around everywhere.
Cons: Not dimmable. LED lights are either on or off (via the Scroll Lock key, which may or may not be a big deal for you). The letters on the keys are labeled so thinly it's actually hard to see the letters when the backlight is off. When it's on, it's a big blue blur, the blue LEDs are diffused through some kind of plastic under the keyboard. This caused the key letters to blend in with the blue backlight unless I really focused on them (to my eyes anyway). This gets old REALLY QUICK unless you are a spot on touch typer, which I am. BUT if you are touch typist, you will instantly notice the "home keys" F and J and just BARELY marked with an indent, you almost can't feel them. Add this into the hard to see blurry keys issue and it throws off my typing. This thing IS NOT A JOY TO TYPE ON. Keys are raised pretty high which is also off putting. I'll take a $10 Logitech keyboard ANY day over this thing if you are going to be typing a lot.
And the mouse... well if you're 12 and into Transformers or robot looking stuff you might like it. It lights up blue too. But it sucks if you are used to using a decent mouse. If you're used to $5 mice then I guess you won't have issues with it, except it's ugly.
Other Thoughts: Want a bright blue keyboard and mouse for cheap for gaming or what not? Here you go. Are you a budding novelist, or need a keyboard/mouse for office work? Keep on looking.
Fast shipping as always and everything was packed well.
Pros: Inexpensive. Nice SATA to USB 3.0 cable adapter. Only needs AC power adapter for 3.5" desktop drives. Overall fairly small (my other SATA to USB adapter is HUGE in comparison with a much bigger AC adapter)
Cons: The cable could be longer? It's like 3 feet.
The real CON is the stupid BOX. The description makes this sound like a removable standalone hard drive caddy... eh, no. It's a PLASTIC BOX that you sit the hard drive in (no screws), and the cable plugs in the back. It is the stupidest thing I have seen, and it will hit the trash very soon.
Other Thoughts: I thought I was buying an external hard drive SATA to USB 3.0 enclosure with a detachable cable. What I got was a SATA to USB 3.0 cable with a cheap thin plastic box. Box is useless, AND it's baby blue. Why not pink or yellow, if we're going to throw it away anyway?READ FULL REVIEW
