Pros: This has a great form factor and very nice controls. It is very light and I love the clip. Good sound output. Battery life is excellent given it's size. No nonsense software that works great with windows OS.
Cons: I would give this a prefect review... but it is not built very well. I was tired of the absent power button on the iPod and generally superfluous junk Apple puts into their software. So I tried this because it had a power button! Ironically, the power button broke. It basically held in place by its soldering to the board. There are two plastic posts, but they are not really functional. So the feature I bought it for ended up being the failure mode. So I bought another... and that broke too. I bought the refurbished ones and the last one was just 8-days over the 30-day warranty and Newegg would not help me out. I opened the case on both and fixed them... but it didn't last long due to the junk RoHS compliant solder we now have to use. So if you are going to get one of these... get a new one with the full warranty.
Overall Review: If you want to make it last longer do not mash on the power button. There is a slight delay after pressing the button before it powers down. Press lightly and wait.
Pros: This thing is nice and simple... there is really no fuss to plug in a drive and start using it. It has worked great on two drives of both form factors. I cracked my broken external Seagate Freeagent open like a stubborn pistachio and stripped the hard drive out and bingo-bango... I had my old back-up files back and a simple alternative solution to buying a new external back-up (thrilled).
Cons: Wish it had a fan... but no big deal.
Pros: This is a great tool for anyone that needs to do presentations! I have been using this quite a bit and lending it out to others and it has worked flawlessly with different versions of PowerPoint on various computer platforms. You don't need to load your presentation onto the USB drive like other similar products. The batteries seems to have a long life and the unit has good range.
Overall Review: The USB element is just a receiver for the hand piece.
Pros: The physical product itself is great... as is most of Logitech's stuff. I love the shape and feel of the body and location of the buttons. I am using it mostly for 3-D CAD and it does not disappoint. The calibration features are very nice to set it up for your own personal hand mechanics.
Cons: I take off one star because of Logitech's dreaded Setpoint software. This can be an absolute pain to install/ uninstall and often has conflicting issues with the native Windows controls. If you don't have a fairly recent (or clean) install of Windows it may not work at all or even recognize that you have installed the mouse and the tab for adjusting the settings will never appear.
Overall Review: I have to pop out the ball (easy to do) once every two weeks to clean off the rollers on the inside to keep it rolling smooth.
Pros: This camera makes a nice picture and does a good job with video as well. I use this to Skype overseas and it has done a great job thus far. It rests very stably on top of my monitor.
Cons: The software automatically loads during windows start-up and has no option deactivate the auto start.
Pros: This stuff is great... I have tried the wipes from the standard office supply stores and they just make my screens worse and make streaks over everything. This product sprays on like a thick gel and wipes off leaving a perfectly clean surface. I have cleaned my PC monitors, laptop screen and 52" flat screen TV with this multiple times and it has done great with everything. It doesn't take much product to clean a lot of screen so it should last a long time.
Overall Review: It works best if the screen is cool. I clean in smaller patches on large screen.
Pros: This is a great monitor. I sit in front of it working in various 3-D CAD packages frequently. It makes a great picture... especially for the price!
Pros: Nice and easy to use. Small form factor... works great! I used this to share a printer that couldn't otherwise be networked and it did the trick for me.
