Nice

Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX
Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX

Pros: It is everything you need from a portable mouse. Its small enough to take with you, its big enough to use for mild gaming. The hidden port for carrying the tiny tranciever is a very nice touch, you dont have to worry about losing it. The dual battery option is nice. I always use 2 recharagable battaries since I use it to game.

Cons: Losses connectivity occasionally, probably due to the zillion wireless devices I have. Not really a con, but I have to point it out...I previously had a bulky gaming mouse which had very high DPI. When I switched to this, the DPI wasn't as good so I had to adjust my perception of what my mouse movements should be. I had to move my mouse further to move across the screen. Since I play on a full HD monitor, I just figured that was why it was difficult at first to get it where I wanted.

Overall Review: Overall: Very good mouse. Great for just about anything as the name implies. I know you will probably faceroll to this but I have to say: If you are a gamer, this is kinda iffy because it is not a mission critical device, as in, it wont hog power to make sure you get 100% connectivity like gaming mouses. This is both a pro and a con as it has great battery life. Basically, as long as you arn't trying to do hardcore gaming, this is perfect for just about any situation.

Omni Gear HDMI-25-HDMI 25 ft. Black High Speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable - OEM
Omni Gear HDMI-25-HDMI 25 ft. Black High Speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable - OEM

Pros: One of them worked.

Cons: The other did not.

Overall Review: Ordered 2, one for myself, one for my brother. His worked with no problems, mine was the opposite. I plugged it in to find red vertical lines and the TV having a rough time trying to figure out what was going on with the connection. The cable seems to be well built, very thick(even a little hard to unravel). I dont think it was a problem in shipping, it was probably a manufacturer defect of some kind. I will write another review when the new one comes in. Minus 2 eggs for only 1 out of 2 working. Minus 1 more egg for the rediculous shipping costs to send it back.

Tough keyboard

Logitech K800 2.4GHz Wireless Slim Illuminated Keyboard - Black
Logitech K800 2.4GHz Wireless Slim Illuminated Keyboard - Black

Pros: This keyboard was good for me because I don't like bulky, heavy, gets-in-the-way keyboards. This one is pretty lightweight, has illuminated keys, typing isn't that loud, tells you when caps is on, has function keys to control media, and even after a year of heavy use, they keys do not stick(with a few single-instance exceptions) Also, for all those that might complain about battery life, you can turn the lighting level down on the fly. It extends the recharge period. It is a very nice feature. It also has the auto sense feature, also very nice. It automatically disables the back light if it is running low on battery. It has a status display that tells you when the battery level is low. It even lightly flashes red when you are getting reallllly low on battery power. The wireless distance is pretty good relative to other wireless devices. The tiny USB transceiver is amazing. I love being able to have all my devices tied to one transceiver. So much greatness in one product.

Cons: None. Price maybe, but it is worth it.

Overall Review: The main reason I decided to write this comment was to explain why I consider it a 'tough keyboard' I accidently spilt a lot of water on it. I felt like an idiot--but anyways, I turned it off immediately and tried to dry it out. I was convinced that after rubbing it down, and patting it against a towel, I had got all the water out. I was wrong and the keys started to have issues. I turned it off, flipped it upside down and stuck it in front of a vent. The two most noticeable keys having issues were the 'u' and the '2'. I would press one, and both of them would fire at the same time. As bad as this was, the fact that they were crossliked together made me think that it was just a matter of letting it dry off some more. After a few hours of failed attempts to get it to work again, I thought I was out of luck and started looking to get a replacement. I'm not so cheap to even try returning it after I made such a major mistake and it was completely my fault. I pulled out another logitech keyboard and went back to work a little upset at myself for letting the keyboard get ruined. I tried pulling off the 'u' key and drying it off under but all I ended up doing was breaking the plastic pivot clip(just the little knob/rod that holds the two pieces together). I gave up. The next day I decided to give it one more try before considering more permanent options. To my surprise, not only did it work but after I put the 'u' key back on, it still types like normal. In fact, I am writing this entire review on the keyboard. I haven't had a single letter mix up so far. I realize this is atypical but you have to admit, it is pretty impressive that a keyboard could recover from one of electronics #1 enemy(water). I'm really happy to have it back in working order. If there was a special 'sixth' egg, I would give it.

Almost 1 year no problems

ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown
ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown

Pros: Touch screen is great. Reacts just as well as my iPhone. Screen is clear and vivid. Speed is pretty good as long as you don't have too many things running at the same time. 32GB takes a long time to fill. Was plug and play for my desktop. No extra software required. Power-only plug charges at about 1% per minute which is not that bad. Sound is decent, but nothing too special. I can't complain but I can't give extra kudos either.

Cons: Nothing about it is really a con so far, just things that I wish were a little better or an added feature: A built in strap or some kind of tether to reduce the need for a firm grip. A button on the back for pictures- I don't take selfies and that's about all it can do lol Would be nice if it was slightly lighter(would prevent the need for my first suggestion in most cases) but for what it does, I understand why it weighs what it does. If it came with a protective case that would be great. I've only dropped it once but It gave me a heart attack because I knew it did not have a protective layer.

Overall Review: I was given this as a gift. At first I thought meh, I might not use it that much but ill give it a try. 9 months later and I use this more than my laptop now. I work with networking devices at home so I have an SSH client installed which has saved me time. I use this for downloading various eBooks for school. I use it for browsing when I don't have access to my laptop or desktop. The list goes on. The only limits on what you can do seem to be from what you can download from the Android app selection. Also I just want to say that it is unfortunate that other people had problems with theirs. Might be the interface between the tablet and the chair that is the problem(the user) but in anycase, I guess I should consider myself fortunate to have had zero problems so far.

Great for the price

Cooler Master Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Cooler Master Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Originally built this as a mobile lab for my machine. It's purpose was to house various VMs under one powerful machine. This case was ideal because it has a type of handle on top which allows for easy transportation. This handle is VERY sturdy and unless you are abusing the case, should never come off. Here are other pros: - 4 front USB ports is very convenient, I originally thought I wouldn't use that many but they have helped a lot. - The snap in rails for the hdd drives are fast and easy to install. - The overall shape and location of everything is very well thought out. - It comes with a fair amount of default cooling fans which save you some $$ if you are planning on doing extensive cooling.

Cons: there are a few cons but nothing worth taking an egg off - no usb 3.0 in the front panel (at least in the model I have) - I have tried installing hard drives every which way but I cannot figure out how to install them so that the power is facing towards the window side of the case. Basically you are forced to connect the power and the sata cable in first then slide it in so that the cable and power are actually fasting the back end of the case. It is possible I just could not figure out some trick to it but even if that were the case, you would figure there would be an easier way to do it.

Still Deciding

Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D Wrath Wireless USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D Wrath Wireless USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset

Pros: As advertised, they are portable/wireless and they function as such. Their technology is sound for establishing a solid and clear wireless experiance. I have used other WIRED gaming headsets($100+), and these are just as good, if not better in some situations. The removable mic is great for when you are eating and listening to music/ watching a movie/ playing a game. Just be careful to put it somehwere you will always be able to find it. Also the fluffy thing on the end can fall off so be careful to check on it. The buttons on the side are neat...although I rarely ever use them, but im sure someone out there finds them useful. Uses nearly no energy while not being used...well let me clarify, they dont turn off unless your computer goes idle or you manually do it. As long as you are not pumping sound through them, they should be able to go 1-2 days and still get an hour+ of use before needing to plug them in. They also tell you when they are running low on battery power.

Cons: I am just going to list these off, none of them are huge cons, but worth noting for people who may be very picky about certain things: 1. They seem to create a seal around your ears which does not allow them to 'breath' enough. This sometimes can become unconfortable, its almost like your ears are sweating more than they should. 2. When they lose connectivity from maxing out on distance, they make somewhat annoying sounds. 3. On rare occasions, it randomly loses connectivity, probably due to other wireless devices I have. Just be careful how many wireless devices you operate around these. 4. They might be interfering with my mouse on occasion. I never have problems with my mouse until I turn these on and on rare occasions, my mouse will stop as if it lost wireless connectivity. 5. Sometimes it glitches out and makes wierd noises when I watch a movie. This is when I have it plugged in. I have yet to determine the cause, and am not even sure if it is the headphones fault.

Overall Review: Conclusion: all things considered, this is a good headset. I was very worried about these being fragile and breaking just because it was such new technology. They are built pretty solid. The only thing that may eventually make me give these less eggs in the future is if they break for no reason, but I doubt that will happen. If you take care of these, and dont bounce them around the ground, I estimate they will last at least 2-3 years. I personally am worried about battery power though. No battery lasts forever. I would suggest planning ahead as that will probably be the first thing to go. Very sleek, very cool looking. The glass sides and the glowing outline is a very nice look. Probably my favorite design for headphones thusfar.
