This review is from: Corsair MM200 CH-9000079-WW Standard Edition Gaming Mouse Mat
Pros: I have never gave much thought to my mousepad before. Its a simple device for preventing scratches on the mouse and the surface it rubs on.
After receiving the MM200 I have found a new appreciation for a good mouse pad. The first thing I noticed was the material it is made of. Soft to the touch and and feels really really good (I'm sensitive to physical stimulation).
The other surprise was how thin it is, as this blends into the desk better than it's thicker counterpart. Obviously the reason it can be thin is because of it's surface area, which leads me to my next pro.
I was shipped the Standard Edition 360x300x2. It covers about 40% of my keyboard/mouse tray which makes it blend into the desk even more. It allows for the keyboard to be half on and half off with one wrist on the material. I might end up buying a second unit just to cover the tray enough that both wrists are resting on them. I can move my keyboard around and have plenty of room for the mouse to move.
Mouse movement has been smooth and effortless. The previous mat I was using had a microfiber covering on it that made things smooth but gave resistance. This mat has minimal resistance while allowing the mouse to stop right where I want it.
All in all I am VERY happy with this unit.
Cons: Two minor cons with packaging.
1. They have sample material on the bottom with a "Touch Me" label. If I was to touch this material before buying, I would have walked away from it. I recommend removing it all together.
2. The inside of the tube stinks really bad. The mat is fine and has no odor, but the tube has that chemical adhesive smell that I can't stand.
Again neither of these effect the product itself, just something to consider.

This review is from: APC Black 10000 mAh Mobile Power Pack M10BK
Pros: Originally I set out to make a video review of the product, but after recording and editing I come to find that NewEgg has suspended video reviews. So this will be a quick run down of my finding.
The unit has really good capacity and reliability. Considering my cell phone has a 7000mah battery, this pack will allow me to fully charge it relatively quickly using the 2.4A port. Taking into account that my battery will last two days without a charge I should be able to be without a wall outlet for up to four days of heavy use.
APC has really good build quality and their products, though costing much more, have a better uptime than their cheaper competitors in the heavy usage arena.
To test the unit, I let my phone die and turn off. The next morning the pack was able to revive the phone and, for the hour drive to work, allowed me to use my bluetooth and pandora streaming.
Sadly the phone only charged to 25% after 6 hours. The problem was with my phone, however, as rebooting caused the charging rate to double.
Cons: The finish scratches REALLY easily. Just taking it out of the package caused a permanent scratch. After realizing this I gently rubbed my finger nails across the front. This caused the guys at work to ask if I had dragged the thing on the ground.
The included cable is really short, could be longer.
The included paper work shows that the unit will not put out more than 2.4A.
Other Thoughts: You pay a premium for the brand reputation, but it is a bit on the high side at the writing of this review. If price wasn't a factor I would recommend this battery pack.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The unit is small as expected. Packaging is standard and comes with the mini-cd with drivers.
I tried installing on my Windows 8.1 system without the drivers and without an internet connection, it installed on its own! Windows 8.1 detected it as a Realtek TRL8188EU chip.
The connection to my 802.11AC router is really strong and stays stable at 72Mbps. Uploading backups of my Wii game collection to my NAS was pushing a standard ~5MBps. In comparison my laptop with fast ethernet will read at ~9MBps. You get the idea.
Streaming 1080p video from my NAS was no problem. The only streaming problem I had was streaming a rather massive blue-ray rip which causes most of the adapters in my house to choke.
Cons: The only con I have was that while I was transferring files to my NAS I would get a random network error. One time I caught this happening and I lost connection in my web browser as well leading me to believe the problem was with the adapter.
Don't let this discourage you as it started pushing files and did not stop for over 12 hours.
Other Thoughts: This is one of the better nano adapters I have used. If your looking for something basic and that is mostly stable this is the adapter for you.
Please keep in mind that if your looking of bandwidth and really stable performance your better off with a higher end bridge.
