Sony SW2 SmartWatch 2 Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Nice, but can do better 10/17/2013

This review is from: Sony SW2 SmartWatch 2 Black

Pros: Thinner and lighter than I thought. So far, no scratches (haven't tried the key test, too afraid). Capable of delivering Google Voice messages with a 3rd part app. Battery lasts much more than 2 days (64% after about 50 hours between charge). Easily visible in bright light.

Cons: My biggest pet peeve is the misleading images on the website and the packaging. There appears to be a digital display that has the date and the time.... this is not an option you can select. I called Sony's customer service and they walked me through a software update (which the software was up to date, but I went ahead with it to reflash it for giggles) to no avail. I'm stuck with 4 analog options and one tacky digital option that does not show the date. I have an open ticket with Sony. So far, no response.

Other Thoughts: Lots of apps to choose from in the app store! Endomondo works awesome. Google Music controls are a bit sketch, but work. The app 'Augmented SmartWatch Pro' fills in the gaps for apps that you need to integrate on the watch.

I hope Sony fixes the watchface issue. This would be a 5 star review if it was already fixed

Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Cherry Red Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Blue Back-lit (GK-OSMIUM)

4 out of 5 eggs Great keyboard, questionable software 05/11/2013

This review is from: Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Cherry Red Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Blue Back-lit (GK-OSMIUM)

Pros: Great keys. USB 3.0 and other features work great.

Cons: The legs on the keyboard fold too easily. I'm always adjusting the keyboard on my desk and when I push it forward the legs collapse. Very annoying.

There is no Windows key on the right hand side so I cannot "Windows Key" + L to quickly lock my computer and for some reason the left "Windows Key" + L does not always work.

There is some bug between this keyboard and Oracle Virtualbox (I have a ticket open with Oracle) that if you hold down the left ctrl button for more than 5 seconds it will lock up the VM

Other Thoughts: The software that you can download from GIGABYTE's website is triggering trojan warnings on VirusTotal. I will not install it until they release one that passes green.

Other than that I love the keyboard!

Corsair Vengeance M65 Laser FPS Gaming Mouse CH-9000022-NA Gunmetal Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 8200 dpi Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Perfect weight. Very precise. I love the clicky scroll wheel so you know exactly how much you've scrolled. Great compliment to a mechanical keyboard

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The software is optional (and probably not any good) but it allows for macro recording.
