Decent flash drive

Kingston DataTraveler 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Purple) Model DTI/4GB
Kingston DataTraveler 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Purple) Model DTI/4GB

Pros: Small and convenient to carry around, key chain loop isn't on the cap. File transfer times are decent, good for a carry around storage.

Cons: I'm disappointed that the small plastic loop to attach it to a key chain broke with a month of use, so it's free floating and liable to be lost now. Lost an egg because of that.

Overall Review: It's a good thing my neighbours are honest because UPS delivered the package down the road instead of to my house.

Most Critical Review

Not what was expected

GEAR HEAD MP2650BLU Blue USB RF Wireless Optical Mouse
GEAR HEAD MP2650BLU Blue USB RF Wireless Optical Mouse

Pros: The mouse is good sized for a travel laptop mouse, which is what I bought it for.

Cons: Unfortunately, I noticed almost immediately that there is a significant stutter in the tracking and responsiveness of this mouse. It will respond smoothly for a while then the signal seems to cut out for a second. This happens constantly, and is something I find too annoying for continued use. I've given this mouse away.

Overall Review: I was looking for a cheap replacement for my Rosewill wireless mouse which has served me well for 2.5 years but is on it's last legs. If Newegg still stocked this, I would have bought it instead.

Works well

PNY Polaroid 16GB microSDHC Flash Card Model P-SDU16G10-EFPOL
PNY Polaroid 16GB microSDHC Flash Card Model P-SDU16G10-EFPOL

Pros: Installed the card in my phone and it works perfectly. With the adapter I can quickly download loads of data from the card to my PC without dealing with the lag of USB or Bluetooth.

Cons: None.

eSata Buggy

Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV - Silver, 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure with Internal 80 mm Fan
Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV - Silver, 3.5" SATA to USB & eSATA External Enclosure with Internal 80 mm Fan

Pros: It does what it promises, turns a spare HDD into an external drive.

Cons: For promising eSATA speeds, it doesn't seem to perform that much greater than USB, in fact USB seems to come out ahead in this enclosure. It got to the point that I stopped using it altogether.

Overall Review: It's still useful, just not as useful as I'd hoped.

Awesome Monitor

ASUS VE247H 24" (Actual size 23.6") Full HD 1920 x 1080 VGA DVI-D HDMI Built-in Speakers LED Backlit LCD Monitor
ASUS VE247H 24" (Actual size 23.6") Full HD 1920 x 1080 VGA DVI-D HDMI Built-in Speakers LED Backlit LCD Monitor

Pros: I've been using this monitor for more than a year, having upgraded from a 17" CRT and good lord has the difference been amazing, I'll never go back! Not one dead pixel in all this time, the response is always crisp and bright, with good contrast and deep blacks, and I don't detect any ghosting during gaming. All and all, the best monitor I've ever had. I use external speakers, so I don't use the ones built in with the monitor, as such I can't rate them, but visually it's unparalleled.

Cons: Could be a little higher on the stand... but that's about it, otherwise nothing.

Overall Review: This monitor seems to go on sale often, when it does grab it!

Pros: Does what it was designed to do, connect PCs to Bluetooth devices.

Cons: Easily lost... as mine was, heh.

Overall Review: Pay attention to what you do with it when you unplug it!
