3 out of 5 eggs Great Mouse but Breaks 03/10/2013

This review is from: Logitech Wireless Anywhere Mouse MX for PC and Mac

Pros: Great mouse. Great comfort. Great sensitivity.

Cons: The buttons break, this is my 3rd pair (too lazy to warrantee so 3rd purchase). After ~1 year of clicking, the mouse would double click on every single click.

Intel 330 Series 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Intel quality. Intel validation. Intel.
It works, its fast and its fast.

Cons: Slightly more expensive than other drives. See comment below why I still choose this drive.

Other Thoughts: Yes, you can buy another SSD for same capacity and maybe even slightly faster for $20-30 less.

I would rather pay a slight premium for this Intel product. Why? $20 is nothing compared to the downtime if a firmware fails, yes Intel isn't completely innocent on this front either in the past, but no one can deny they put more effort into validation and debugging.

As for the extra speed on some of the other drives? Does it really matter? Will you really notice the difference? Plus, life is always a tradeoff, assuming they're using similar chips (e.g., Micron/Crucial and Intel drives chips come from the same Fab), it's the controller / firmware that is different. And firmware can always be tuned towards more performance or reliability. I choose reliability.
