Pros: It arrived quickly, excellent packaging and not damaged in any obvious way.
Cons: It didn't work. The cable doesn't interface with my ipod shuffle 2nd gen at all. iTunes doesn't recognize a device has been added and the unit doesn't charge at all. Very disappointing.
Other Thoughts: Got this because I didn't want to pay the $20 best buy is charging for the official one. Guess I need to pay for the more expensive one anyway. Not worth sending back for a $5 item...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This mouse had a good weight for me. With the heavier adjustment weights I thought it was still a bit on the light side for a mouse, but nothing detrimental. Tracking was very good and I didn't have any problems with jumps or other odd responses. I really liked the on the fly resolution adjustment. It let me use the mouse, hand it off to someone else and let them use it at a different sensitivity, and then back to me without having to futz around with software.
Cons: Almost immediately the braiding on the cord began to fray. Out of the box it had portions where the cord braiding (a plastic cloth type weave on the outside of the USB cord connecting the mouse) was off already. It seemed cosmetic and not worth paying shipping to return so I just didn't worry about it. Then about 5 months in to owning the mouse, the connection with the computer started getting intermittent. After troubleshooting I determined it was a wiring issue somewhere in the cord and near the USB plug. The issue steadily worsened over the next month until the mouse just stopped working entirely. A shame, and something I am seeing appears to be common.
Other Thoughts: It is almost a good enough mouse to start trying to fight a warranty process. Not sure though...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazing speed, plays all the games I throw at it just fine, strong internet connection through my WiFi and my work WiFi. Couldn't be more pleased. Camera works very well, nice and clear. Battery lasts about 4.5 hours on battery saving settings, about 1.5 hours when doing mid range HD graphics gaming (Dragon Age Origins at maxed settings and AA/AF) Haven't noticed an issue with the resolution looking small, something that other reviewers noted. It doesn't hold a candle to my three 24 inch eyefinity desktop set-up, but not expecting it to since the entire laptop cost is less than the 3 displays and the video card on that one.
Cons: Sound was at first a little tinny, but I adjusted the sound settings through the equalizer and it sounds full now. Had to figure out the use of the higher end video card through the hybrid system - you can left click on the game icon and choose "Run with High-End Graphics Processor" for games it doesn't auto-detect as needing that sort of thing (like Minecraft for instance).
Other Thoughts: Have had no issues at all and have been very happy with this lap top for work and for gaming.READ FULL REVIEW
