This review is from: Opteka Battery Pack Power Grip for Nikon D40, D40X, D60, D3000 & D5000 Digital SLR
Pros: Simple battery pack that holds two EN-EL9 batteries or use the included AA adapter cartridges to use 8 of your favorite rechargeable AA batteries (or regular). Solid construction and engineering mean you don't have to worry about damage to camera.
Cons: None for standard battery life uses.
Other Thoughts: Some photographers look for bases with a bit more to them, but this is simply a battery extension adapter. I was able to charge two EN-EL9 battery packs and walk the entire Smithsonian National Zoological Park and the majority of the National Air and Space Museum, filling nearly two 32GB SDHC cards, before I ran out of juice. Very please with Opteka's products.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Planar 997-5253-00 Black Dual Monitor Stand for LCD Displays
Pros: Solid construction with an easy build. Only tools you need are included with the package, other than a simple screwdriver to mount the monitors. I have a Samsung B2330HD and a B2330 on this mount, Easy mounting, simple operation, no unnecessary frills or muss.
Other Thoughts: I have played with a number of dual monitor mounts in my day as a Desktop IT Tech. I had not worked with Planar mounts before this, but I was very please with this as an solid and inexpensive solution. I would definitely recommended.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech G300 Black/Gray 9 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2500 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: - Easily portable
- Light weight
- 5 Programmable buttons
- Three color modes (chose three color settings for swashes on each side from 8 different colors)
- Matches well with color programmable keyboards or cases with led lighting schemes
- wired = long cord
Cons: Conditional con - Wired.
For the color schemes, wired is a logical choice since it will not run out batteries as quickly, but in some environments (I use mine as a travel mouse) the longer cable can get caught up. I keep mine coiled with standard "twist ties" to keep it manageable.
Other Thoughts: The G series control software allows for default and game mode, and allows the choice of turning off the illumination of the swash on the sides. This is handy if you want to save the batteries on a laptop.
I have been very happy with this mouse's responsiveness and easy buttons.
