Logitech G500S 910-003602 10 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 8200 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of buttons. Easy programming. The weight tray was interesting... i liked being able to tune the weight of the mouse.

Cons: Failed within 9 months. My last two Logitech gaming mouses have both failed within a year. I could be working with the mouse and it would simply start connecting and disconnecting. Eventually it stopped connecting completely.

Wire cover failed within weeks. The wire has a woven nylon outer layer that was wound too tightly. As the nylon relaxed, the inner wire protruded out so that I had a kinds of 2 inch loop on my wire.

Other Thoughts: The last two failures indicate an overall lack of quality. My next mouse will, hopefully, be something else. I like the form factor, but quality has been a real issue.

I don't understand, if I pay ~$50-$70 for a mouse, why the cord can't be a 14 gauge twisted cable. It does not seem to be a huge cost to put a substantial wire on a mouse.

ZyXEL ZyWALL ZWUSG20W 802.11n Wireless Internet Security Firewall with 4 Gigabit LAN / DMZ Ports, 2 IPSec VPN, SSL VPN , and 3G WAN Support
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I do not know networking well and wanted to set up a VPN between my wife's store and our home network in order to monitor some cameras, sales etc.

I have enough knowledge to set up my own wireless network at home. The Zyxell tech support walked me through all of the rest. It took a while to set up, but they were patient with both the cameras and some special firewall rules I needed.

I would not be able to tell the difference between this and any number of other routers... I just don't have the knowledge. The tech support, however, was outstanding. I will buy all my future routers from Zyxel.

Cons: Interface is challenging to those who are ignorant of network setup. Fortunately the tech support is excellent.

5 out of 5 eggs Good learners camera 03/30/2013

This review is from: Canon EOS REBEL T3i 5169B005 Black 18.0 MP DSLR

Pros: Easy to learn to use for someone new to DSLR. The camera body has some high quality lens which can upgrade to future camera bodies. The programming options are easy for me to use, and monochrome in particular looks excellent. It's also easy for me to play with aperture or shutter speed depending on the need. I used the camera in Yellowstone and the only problem was the cheap filters I bought to go with it. Seems kind of silly on my part to spend $1400 on camera equipment and $1.99 on filters. Does great (for my expectation) at capturing wildlife. I have many good photos of birds in flight captured at a high speed... image is crisp.

Cons: None. I am not a professional and this is my first non point and shoot camera (though it has a point and shoot mode).

Other Thoughts: Purchase a back up battery and a couple of large memory cards to go with it. The batteries last a long time, but after a bunch of photos (300+) it could wear down. I've taken it through a couple of national parks and between two batteries and two 32GB flash cards never had an issue with power or memory. The software that comes with it is not useful to me... I think it is for more advanced users. I end up using the std MS Office offering.
