UtechSmart US-D8000-GM High Precision Laser Gaming Mouse - Avago ADNS-9800 Chipset, 8000 DPI, 9 Programmable Buttons, Weight Tuning Cartridge
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast polling rate
Very high DPI,
Settings are 'cooked' onto the mouse (see other thoughts)

Does work with Mac (see other thoughts)

Cons: As some other reviewers mentioned, the mouse is very light, even with all the weights in, it still is light by gaming mouse standards.

The buttons are noisy comparatively

Software is not Mac compatible (See other thoughts)

Software seems to be a low development priority.

Other Thoughts: I was actually pleasantly surprised with this mouse. I bought this specifically to see how well it performed because I was curious at the perpetually $33.99 price tag. Considering that I paid at least four times that for my current mouse.

It so far has not disappointed.

Installation was quick, setup was easy and intuitive, nothing really bad to say so far.

I am still getting getting used to the 8000 DPI but it is very precise. Great for First Person gaming.

An interesting thing I found with this device is that the settings are 'cooked' onto the mouse making it semi-Mac compatible.

I initially set it up with all my macros and DPI settings (and color) on my primary desktop PC using the software from Utech.

I later connected it to my Mac desktop and I initially assumed that it would take all the factory setting since that has been my experience with other gaming mice, but I was surprised to find that it retained the settings I had set on the PC, including DPI and color.

The software is most assuredly NOT Mac compatible but you can configure on a PC then use on your Mac if that is what you choose to do.

The software itself is kind of obnoxious since at the time of this review there has been no updates. However, this is still a new brand and thus their software development may be a lower priority since the canned software does work.

Bottom Line:
If you are looking for a gaming mouse that will not break the bank, and may even outperform some bigger name-brand mice, this is your mouse. I highly recommend.

Note: This mouse was purchased on sale at $33.99 + shipping.

ASUS Transformer Pad 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought this for business, one of the best tools I have for what I do. Display is bright, crisp and clear. Controls are well laid out, Lightweight. Quad-Core makes everything snappy.
Much less expensive then similar competitor tablets.

Cons: Not really a con, but just like anything with a large touchscreen, easily gets covered in fingerprints.

Other Thoughts: Finding a case that also provides for the keyboard is difficult. None of the ones sold here are clear on if they provide a spot to allow the keyboard to be attached with the case on.
Also Asus has a driver/software bit that they distribute on their site for this tablet. I would Highly recommend reading the entire description BEFORE using that particular piece of software.

Fosmon Crystal Clear Screen Protector (3 pcs pack) + Captive Stylus + Micro HDMI to HDMI Cable or ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF300
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cable works. Stylus' sort of work

Cons: Screen Protectors are mislabeled, so following the step you end up putting the protector on wrong (backwards). I burned through all 3 trying to figure out why they were not adhering, and the instructions for application are very much lacking. The Stylus' are clumsy and cheap.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. It was 10 buck, the cable may or may not be worth ten bucks.
The screen protectors have issues more related to the actual manufacturer not the seller. Same goes for the Stylus'
I would suggest buying the items individually as you may get a higher quality for a marginally higher price
