Microsoft Wireless Desktop 2000 for Business P7K-00001 Black 104 Normal Keys USB RF Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard & Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Mouse wheel has no "click" stops.

Cons: Mouse's principal (left-click) button now works intermittently and only with a HARD click effort. Cleaning with canned air didn't help.

Mouse wheel has bad bearing; grinds unless rolling it perfectly down the center.

Keyboard's directional cursor keys are WAY too close to other keys, so I accidentally hit other keys when trying to use cursor keys (I'm a fast touch typist)

The keyboard itermittently doesn't work or has lags. I've now had to situate the USB receiver on my monitor base (via USB extension cable) to get it to work somewhat decently.

Other Thoughts: It seems difficult to find a decent keyboard/mouse combo these days. After several disappointing Logitechs I thought I'd give this Microsoft combo a try (since I had a decent Microsoft RF-wireless mouse for my laptop), but after a year of using this I am once again looking for yet another keyboard/mouse combo. :(

Lot 5x Touch Screen Stylus Pen for Motorola BH5X Droid X2 Verizon Silver

1 out of 5 eggs Useless for Moto Droid Ultra 12/01/2013

This review is from: Lot 5x Touch Screen Stylus Pen for Motorola BH5X Droid X2 Verizon Silver

Pros: Very inexpensive.

Cons: On my Motorola Droid Ultra, this stylus tip is too blunt (it's like touching the screen with a soft, round ball rather than a more concise tip). As such, my (large) fingertip is no less accurate. I've thrown this cheap thing away; useless. Save your money; don't buy.

Other Thoughts: This was a waste of money.

Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Hardware-based encryption Model DTL+/16GB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: High security; good value. After applying a firmware update (obtained after 4 email rounds with Kingston tech support; see below), the drive works great.

Cons: After receiving this product I found it wouldn't allow access to the encrypted volume; same result on 2 different Win7/x64 computers. After I provided detailed information about the problem, Kingston tech support suggested various fixes; none worked. I finally RMA'd drive through Newegg; rec'd a new replacement. But same problems... Another couple rounds with Kingston tech support; their final suggestion: "try latest update for the drive" (they provided a password-protected link to their FTP site for the updater). After downloading & installing, drive works perfectly. My gripes (and the reason for knocking off two eggs): a) Why was this drive shipping with 3-year-old firmware? b) Why doesn't Kingston readily post all firmware updates (I certainly checked their website for such, but not publicly posted); and c) Why did it take 4 email from them before they suggested the updater? This wasted lots of my time, & Newegg's time, and postage $$. Sheesh!

Other Thoughts: I normally never post product reviews on Newegg, but I always read the many helpful reviews others have posted prior to buying. I suggest to those who've bought this drive that if you have problems, be sure to email Kingston tech support and ask for the updater (file name DT4000_Updater3006_Win3012HIDi_Mac3012.exe) before wasting your time with other troubleshooting efforts; might save you a lot of time.
