Logitech G100s 910-003533 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2500 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Poor quality for the price 01/28/2014

This review is from: Logitech G100s 910-003533 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2500 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: When it worked the mouse was fairly decent. It was a corded and comfortable to use.

Cons: Cord was a bit stiff. The left button hung open after about 5 months of use. When this happened I had to leave the mouse in my app and unplug it, then quickly unpackage a replacement I happened to have lying around. For the price I would expect it to last as long as the mice that are half the price. This mouse was not as precise in Photoshop as some of the cheaper laser mice I've used. Overall I was not impressed with the quality. The plastic finish Logitech's been using of late causes a layer of build up on the buttons which can be embarrassing if someone else happens to need to touch the mouse.

Other Thoughts: I've had a few of the Logitech mice exhibit the left click switch failure. I had purchased this one in the hopes they used better switches in their more expensive mice (other companies do this with keyboards). I typically use the wireless mice that can be found for half the price of this one. Now I typically get 4-5 months of use out of a Logitech product, but I do use them 20 hours a day.

Fortinet FG-40C-US FortiGate-40C Multi-threat Protection 40000 Simultaneous Sessions < 50Mbps
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Strong firewall with multiple WAN connections. Supports load balancing. Allows for multiple policies and mappings.

Cons: This package for the unit does not include any of the UTM licenses. Note that you are only buying the capability. You have to pay close to half the price of the unit per year for the service. Without the service this is no different than the Cisco RV... unit that is half the price. Additionally if you decide at some point in the future to purchase the service, they will charge you back to the date your service lapsed.

If you're planning on using this for network fail-over look for something else. In my situation I have a DSL line for back-up and a Satellite connection for my primary connection. When the satellite loses its signal it does not fully go off (unlike a failed T1). This unit still sends packets to the satellite despite the lack of a connection on the other side of the gateway from the satellite. The unit is expecting for the first WAN port to go unresponsive before it will switch over to the second WAN for fail-over. Therefore you have to manually unplug the first Wan port in order to use the second wan port during a storm.

Other Thoughts: Mine came with an older firmware installed. I didn't update the firmware initially because we were having network issues and it required an internet connection and to login and register the machine for service. After setting up multiple internet connections I was able to connect to the service, but for some reason did not update the firmware. When I connected my provided USB cable to the device to perform the update the device went into a loop and did not recover. When I went looking for the "included Console Cable" I realized that my kit from this vendor DID NOT CONTAIN A CONSOLE CABLE. The console looks like an RJ-45 connector and a Serial Connector on the other end. Because of this I have no way of going into my unit to reset it until I get another one of these cables.

When I received the box, there was no wrapping on the outside of the box, so someone could easily have removed my console cable prior to shipping.

I've used the Enterprise-level Fortigate Appliances in an IT role before. They are awesome. These [units] are attempts at riding that name. While they do offer command-line functionality, much of the interface in these units are dumbed down and features are inaccessible unless you really know what you're doing via CLI.

G-RAID 0G00273 Hard Drive Array - 2 x HDD Installed - 4 TB Installed HDD Capacity - CZ0905
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It has lots of storage. Comes with lots of cables. Feels pretty solid.

Cons: It's not quality control tested.

Other Thoughts: I bought one of these on the site named for a river. They had more reviews and this one was mislabeled as a car speaker. It's actually an external RAID enclosure with a couple of hard drives in it.

Upon connecting it to my machine, I realized the Firewire 800 ports (both of them) don't work. I tried a couple of cables, tried a couple of different machines. The USB cable did.
