Does its job

Targus DEFCON® T-Lock Resettable Combo Cable Lock - PA410U
Targus DEFCON® T-Lock Resettable Combo Cable Lock - PA410U

Pros: Works. Great travel companion, especially if you don't want to lug around a huge heavy-duty lock and cable (if one even exists for laptops).

Cons: The cable can be easily cut, but then again, the advertisement makes no false claims, so I can't ding it for that. Great deterrent.

Overall Review: I travel frequently and I don't like locking/hiding my laptop every single time I leave my room (although I do if I'm gone for a long time). This way, room service doesn't walk away with it. After all, what maid walks around with cable cutters or a hacksaw?

Great

Pros: Works, has yet to let me down.

Cons: None I can think of.

Overall Review: I have my computer, monitor, speakers, wireless router, printer, and phone modem hooked up to it. I haven't had power outages last longer than a few seconds, always due to storms. It has yet to fail on me. Considering getting a second one for my entertainment center. I also plugged in the USB to my Windows 7 computer and it automatically detects as battery power, a huge bonus when it comes to graceful shutdowns due commercial power outages and battery power running out.

Great

Pros: No dead pixels, great picture, works flawlessly with Windows 7.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Not the sexiest monitor out there, but great for the price.

Nice

Logitech K740 Illuminated USB Keyboard

Pros: Slim, quiet, works as advertised, simple.

Cons: None I can think of.

Overall Review: Way to expand the Delete key and shrink the useless Insert key. Love the illumination feature, much more clarity as opposed to the entry-level Saitek I bought some time ago.

Happy Camper

AZiO ENC211SU31 Aluminum 2.5" Black SATA USB 2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure

Pros: Holds drive securely. Well constructed. Small. Works. Universal voltage power adapter.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Overall Review: I travel quite a bit and as with all travelers, electronics tend to get banged up. This puppy is solid. It comes with a nice sleeve, fits well into my backpack pockets, and is not inconvenient to drag around. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Great for gaming

Pros: Nice and simple, great for gaming in the dark.

Cons: Volume keys do not work with Ubuntu Linux 6.06 by default. They do work with Windows though without having to install any extra garbage.

Overall Review: My last keyboard's volume keys worked with Linux without a problem. This one didn't. I haven't bothered to see if there are Linux drivers for it though. Other than that, I'm happy I bought this and will keep it as long as USB exists.
