Rosewill RNX-G1 Wireless Black Dongle w/ External 2dBi SMA Antenna IEEE 802.11b/g A-Type USB 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked great, fast speeds, very cheap price.

Cons: 3 years and 2 months after purchasing this, it's finally starting to die. The speeds have dropped very low (30 times slower than normal) tested on multiple computers, and I've tried every diagnostic. Can't really complain for that cheap price though it lasted pretty long time under moderate use.

Logitech G400 Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 3600 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Poor mechanical design of cable causes connectivity issues 04/18/2015

This review is from: Logitech G400 Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 3600 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: Nice ergonomic feel, smooth movement. I never really use the speed adjustment buttons, but they are there.

Cons: The cable on this mouse is too thin. I had an older version of the mouse and its cable is about twice in diameter adding more mechanical strength to it. This mouse cable failed on me once already within a few months of ownership and returned it for a free replacement from Logitech. Now another 2 years later the cable is failing again. The wiring inside is wearing-out and the loose electrical connection causes the mouse button to "unclick" even while I am still pressing the button; it only happens when I move the mouse simultaneously. I don't feel like sending this in again for ANOTHER replacement (if they will even let me). I've never had this problem with any other mouse that I use in the same normal conditions, but this specific model failed twice. The older Logitech model with the thicker cable has outlasted 2 of these newer models by many years.

Other Thoughts: Before reducing the thickness of their cables (for cost savings?) in this new model, Logitech should have tested this device more thoroughly for mechanical wear and longevity.

SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought one of these a few months ago for my powerhouse desktop, and now a 2nd one for my laptop. The Windows desktop startup was cut from about 3 minutes down to 1 minute. The provided Magician software allows me to test the speeds of all my drives. The read and write speeds of the SSD are 7x FASTER than my 1.5TB disk drive (536MB/s read and 482MB/s write). For gaming, loading a BattleField4 map is extremely fast now, you can tell exactly which fellow players also have SSD's.
I've also seen that a single Samsung drive is capable of writing at least 2,000TB of data in tests, meaning they will likely far outlast YOUR lifetime let alone a platter disk drive's typical lifetime of a few years.
The lack of moving parts makes this an amazing replacement for a laptop in terms of drop damage or motion in general, and it's FAR lighter in weight compared to the platter drive. Plus, it drains less power without any spinning mechanical parts, thus increasing laptop battery life.

Cons: HOWEVER, if you want to use the software to clone a secondary drive, it didn't even let me select it! I had to boot my desktop from the laptop drive in safe mode (luckily that even worked), but even then the Samsung migration software was UNABLE to clone the laptop drive with some obscure error message that it couldn't read the drive's type/information, even though I was able to size the partitions and everything up to the point of pressing "start". I ended up downloading and using "Acronis True Image WD Edition" software to perform the clone, and it worked perfectly. In spite of these issues, I will still be rating this product with 5 eggs because I am so satisfied with the hardware.

Other Thoughts: The data migration (cloning) software worked fine for my desktop because the source drive was my main OS drive. But I think the software has some issues with certain drive types as I experienced, and it wouldn't even let me select a secondary drive as my source drive, I needed to be able to do that to clone my laptop drive using my PC.
