This review is from: Verbatim Ergo Mouse 97593 Blue 1 x Wheel USB 2.0 RF Wireless Optical Mouse
Pros: Looks very nice. Buttons feel good.
Cons: This is my second Verbatim 97593. The first one failed and I got it replaced under warrantee. But that previous mouse and this one both suffer from excessive battery consumption. I don't think I can go a month without having to replace the AAA batteries. I bought big card of Durcells and I have plowed through most of that in less than a year. I have checked for drivers, hoping that an updated driver might solve the problem, but so far, I have found no solution. I suspect there is a design defect that has not been corrected by Verbatim. I also think that this mouse is not as "ergonomic" as claimed. It could arch a little bit higher IMO, at least for the shape of my adult hand, My previous Microsoft ergonomic mouse felt much better in my hand. I would not buy another of these and I am sorry I own this one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: THe PSU was good. The Power Cord Measured Good. They didn't work together. See Other thoughts section for an explanation.
Cons: Someone at Athena is not doing a good job in outgoing quality, See Other Thoughts Section.
Other Thoughts: After doing some debugging, the supply itself seems to be fine. I built 5 systems using this small supply and 2 of the 5 Asus Mobtherboards would not fire up. Nothing happened and no LEDs lit up. At first I thought I had assembled the computer wrong. But then when I swapped out the Athena Power Suppy, the problem followed the supply. The motherboards all worked perfectly. I thought it was strange that I would get 2 out of 5 bad supplies. Then I put a multimeter on the line cord and it showed 120 Volts. So the line cord looked good. That made me think that the two supplies were duds. But then I got new line cords from stock and plugged them in to the power supplies that would not fire up. That worked fine. So there seems to have been some incompatibility between the PSU itself and the line cord.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice Drive. Data transferred nicely.
Cons: The Computer needed a 9.5 mm drive and it wasn't until after I transferred all the data (cloned the drive) that I saw that the drive was much bigger than the one that would fit. This drive is really thick, 15 mm. Caveat Emptor.READ FULL REVIEW
