Cons: Unfortunately I did not have the chance to check this drive prior to the 30 day return policy. The drive is DOA. I was hoping to be able to contact Toshiba support via email, as I work during normal business hours and don't have much chance to contact companies via phone, but there is NO email support listed on their site for support for internal hard drives. Waste of money. Now I know what company to never give money to again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech M570 910-001799 Black 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Trackball
Pros: The mouse is extremely comfortable and easy to get used to (even though it seems like it would be weird using your thumb). It really lessened the pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, since you don't have to move the mouse/your wrist around.
Cons: Unfortunately, it seems these units always end up having a bad problem really early in their lifespan. The first one I had ended up having a broken scroll wheel, so I called Logitech and they sent me a second one.
The second one started having double-click issues about 6 months into using it. It wasn't so bad, but a few more months down the road and it just got worse. Now EVERY time I click it double clicks, and it will lose a button-press in the middle of doing things (try dragging and dropping when the button won't stay activated).
Other Thoughts: I will say, in total I've had this mouse for 4 years, I only have to replace the battery once a year, and the trackball is great! I just wish the rest of the hardware was as good as the trackball portion, especially for $50. I really wish I could buy this mouse from a different company, in the hopes that the quality would be better.
For the lifespan of 90% functionality of this mouse (which is about 6 months max, after that you either lose the scroll wheel, the back/forward buttons, or the mouse clicks/holds), I would be willing to pay about half of this price every few years. If it lasted through the warranty period without having an issue, I wouldn't mind paying the $50, but it doesn't.
Considering this is the second one that I bought and both have problems (and had problems within 6 months of ownership), I'm on the fence about buying a third to replace the one with the clicking issues.
Pros: Very compact, well made, holds the drive snugly and securely. No plastic smell, pieces fit together well.
Cons: Does not work for backing up the PS3. Might still work for just hosting data, but the PS3 can't seem to write to the drive.
Other Thoughts: Disappointed that I won't be able to use it for backups.READ FULL REVIEW
