This review is from: Rosewill Reflex RGM-1000 Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: I can't comment on this mouse for gaming. I picked it up on sale for photo editing. The quality of the mouse seems very good and the interchangeable weight system is a nice addition. The mouse is very accurate in photoshop. programmable buttons are nice, but I can't seem to program the exact set up I want.
I can't comment on longevity, but it feels like it is very well made
Cons: none so farREAD FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Breville XXESP6SXL Café Modena Espresso Machine
Pros: I bought this machine for about the same price as the refurb at Newegg . For the price point $65 you can't find a better deal for a 15 bar pump espresso machine. I'm a latte hound and drink at least 5 double lattes a day from this machine. Quality is great. Heats up pretty quick and breaks apart easily to clean. Makes very hot espresso and latte. Also tall enough to fit 12 oz mug directly under spout.
Cons: I personally think it is worth 5 eggs but I marked 4 because some people might find it annoying that it spits out some water before it generates steam. It also takes about 3 minutes to self prime when its new and empty. Some people might find the fixed(non-movable) steam wand annoying.. I just steam my milk right in my mug and it works great.
Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what accessories are supplied with recertified machines... make sure it has porta filter and single and double shot containers. I find it works best with extra fine grind. Also invest in a high quality burr grinder. There is a small rubber attachment on end of steamer wand that seems useless. I actually saw many bad reviews about this machine and would have never paid full price for it. I would like to review the reviewers that complain about the pump burning out because they didn't know you had to put water in it... Some people have problem putting filter into or taking off filter.. I say righty tighty... Just for the record I've owned a lot of espresso machines and they are all a lot louder then a drip coffee maker. Overall for the price point this makes real espresso for a few dollars more than any steam espresso machine..READ FULL REVIEW
