Pros: Fantastic form factor, feels solid in your hand, very accurate on my steelseries mousepad. No complaints about the day to day functioning. I love the plain form factor this is old school MS laser mouse style but with some extra buttons. I personally can't stand the new form factors that are just awkward to hold (Razer).
Cons: This is the second one of these I have bought. The first one the mousewheel totally failed (it completely collapsed inward on itself). If you do any serious gaming, you can plan on a button or two pooping out in a year or so at minimum, probably before that. The second one they sent me as a replacement has now died and I am here buying this one. I wouldn't buy it if it wasn't on sale for $31. The springs are cheap as dirt. I expect more for a premium gaming mouse meant for gaming and spamming clicks. Don't pay $70 for this or you're going to feel bad when it poops out. I am only willing to pay $31 because it's the only mouse in this form factor and aside from it's lack of longevity it's essentially the perfect mouse. I just don't understand why they wouldn't spend $1 or $2 more on springs (let's be honest, it's probably less than that) to inspire diehard loyalty. As soon as I find a new brand that I can tolorate, I will move on and never look back at Steel Series. But for now all the manufacturers all want mouses with more buttons, look cooler, or are "meant for MMORPG", etc...
Other Thoughts: Highly recommend buying the SS mousepad - it's the best $30 I've ever spent for gaming.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Camera is decent enough, black and white.
Software is workable.
Connected to internet and router easily enough.
iPhone app works.
Cons: Motion detection can only send to email or ftp which doesn't help much. I want it to "words with friends" style iPhone alert if there is motion. The iphone app is VERY barebones and while functional, disconnects often. Honestly I wouldnt need to use it much but they get to pay for streaming since the motion detection doesnt even send me a decent alert. The camera hardware seems decent, but the swivel isn't tight so the camera drifts either up or down depending on how you have it oriented. I will need to tape it in place once I get a permanent spot for it.
Other Thoughts: They could take this camera, and their web product and with a couple grand worth of development cost, have a REALLY super good product. They just need to invest more, and have some good people work on their products. I bought this product to see if I want more, but at this time I don't. The product is simply just too barebones for me. Once the web interface is improved considerably, I will be purchasing more though.READ FULL REVIEW
