Crucial MX300 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: With a clean install of Win10 this makes my Dell notebook (Core i7, 8 GB) boot in half the time it previously did.

Cons: No problems so far, and I don't anticipate that there will be any.

Other Thoughts: It's possible that some of my boot improvements are due to the clean install instead of the Win10 upgrade on top of Win7, but I'm sure that's only a part of the improvement. I'm very happy with the overall performance and the drive itself.

Pro Earhook Mini XLR TA4F Headworn Microphone For Shure Wireless Omnidirectional Mic
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fits virtually any head very well. Comfortable and easy to use for extended periods. Stays in position well. Reversible to place mic on left or right side of head. Mic is easily positioned.

Cons: Larger than acceptable noise floor, with much hiss.

Other Thoughts: We bought this to replace a headworn mic that only fit on one ear. That one frequently came loose while being used. This one stays in place very nicely since it hooks to both ears, but the noise floor is not acceptable. We've now mounted our old mic to the frame of this one, hopefully solving all the problems.

Logitech K830 920-006081 Black USB Logitech 2.4 GHz Wireless Technology Standard Keyboard with Touchpad
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small, very light weight, somewhat customizable with available software from Logitech, good battery life.

Cons: Although their software promises that the F keys can ALL be modified or even returned to the normal F key functions, this isn't currently true. F10, F11 and F12 are permanently assigned as media controls for back, play/pause and forward, respectively. So if your software uses those F keys, you may be somewhat frustrated.

I frequently switch between normal and full-screen in IE with the F11 key, but with this keyboard I must add the FN key with my other hand. I also have other software that uses F11, so this might bug me more than other folks.

Also, even though it's illuminated very nicely, only those reassigned labels light up on the F keys. The F1 - F12 labels are added in an orange color which is invisible without direct light shining on the keyboard, and even then don't stand out at all.

Other Thoughts: People have been complaining to Logitech about these types of changes since they brought out their first Illuminated Keyboard, but they don't seem to listen at all. They do make occasional, seemingly random, changes. For example, this one has reassigned the F8 key to open IE to your home page. Their other illuminated keyboards have reassigned F1. Changing from one to another only leads to problems.
