Most Favorable Review

Great monitor. lackluster features, but fantastic image quality.

LG 24MP59G-P 24" (Actual size 23.8") Full HD 1920 x 1080 75Hz VGA HDMI AMD FreeSync Flicker Safe Anti-Glare Backlit LED IPS Gaming Monitor

Pros: Beautiful display panel. Huge resolution and aspect ratio. 75hz refresh rate Easy to set up. Included displayport cable, I think.. (I may have had one lying around and forgotten, don't buy it just for the possibly cable) Neat cable management collar on the back.

Cons: No a con, but had to mention in all fairness, this is a no frills experience: solid base, no height, tilt, or swivel adjustment, no speakers. No DVI input was a little of a bummer but this is not even close to a dealbreaker with all the adapters available inexpensively.

Overall Review: I got it on sale, but if I had to spend more I wouldn't have bought it due to the lack of the semi-standard features (height, tilt, swivel), but then again I try to be frugal. I paid around $100 for it over cyber monday. If I needed to buy another one, I would go for something closer to that price point, at the current $168 price point I would need more features to click checkout without buyers remorse. I removed 1 egg because I believe that the panel should be around this price naturally, but the market and I do not always agree.

Works great normally

AUKEY True Wireless Stereo Earbuds Bluetooth 5 Headphones with Wireless and USB C Charging Case In-Ear 30H Playtime IPX5 Water Resistance Low Latency Earphones for iPhone Android Black EP-T31

Pros: good fit, sounds nice, great overall feel, good features, can activate the controls through a beanie hat (huge plus)

Cons: not many, but i've had the left earbud lose audio unexpectedly. it wasnt a lost connection, as after either moving my head or increasing the volume restores the audio without the "reconnect" sound playing. not sure what the issue is, but if the problem persists I may request a replacement considering the price.

Overall Review: Overall its a great product. I love the green friendly packaging and minimalist feel of the product. if the issue I had resolves itself or the replacement solves it I will update my rating. barring this issue, its a 5star product for the price.

Great mouse, takes some getting used to but definitely relieves wrist strain

Perixx PERIMICE-513N PERIMICE-513, Wired Ergonomic Vertical Mouse - 1000/1600 DPI - Natural Ergonomic Vertical Design
Perixx PERIMICE-513N PERIMICE-513, Wired Ergonomic Vertical Mouse - 1000/1600 DPI - Natural Ergonomic Vertical Design

Pros: Great compromise between fully vertical and standard flat mouse. As far as I can tell, it has alleviated my wrist discomfort and now my fingertips dont get numb! responsive and slides smoothly on my pad Good customizable dpi, but I only use one setting for everything I do.

Cons: The mouse wheel has started to squeak when scrolling, I can likely solve this with lubricant, but I would prefer to not have to do that. Not really a con of the device itself, but I've accidentally knocked it over while reaching for things. in that scenario, it is possible that while knocked over it may rotate and allow the laser to shine in unanticipated directions. Definitely a "my fault" kind of thing, but it should be known to potential clumsy purchasers.

Overall Review: I wish I could give it 4.5 eggs, I only reserve 5 eggs for near perfect products and although this nearly perfect in every way, I have to admit the annoying squeakyness as this is the first time a mouse wheel has squeaked after 2 months (really ever for me). If you are comfortable adding dielectric grease to the wheel yourself, then this is a fantastic product and you should give it a shot for this price.

Decent for the first 2 months, now failing in multiple ways.

AUKEY Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Clicky Blue Switches & LED Backlight, 104-Key Anti-Ghosting Wired Mechanical Keyboard with Macro Recording & Ergonomic Design for PC and Laptop KM-G16
AUKEY Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Clicky Blue Switches & LED Backlight, 104-Key Anti-Ghosting Wired Mechanical Keyboard with Macro Recording & Ergonomic Design for PC and Laptop KM-G16

Pros: Great overall feel of the product. Backlights were bright and customizable Good price Highly responsive and responsible seller

Cons: Not reliable. After 2 months, the keyboard began to wear out in multiple ways. non functional up and down arrow keys, and home and end keys. 7 dead leds behind the keys, it started with one, now there are 7 dead and more dimming.

Overall Review: For the first month everything was great about the keyboard. The keys still feel good to this day, but after the second month some keys stopped working and so far at least 9 key backlights have dimmed and 7 are functionally out. I contacted the manufacturer after one led backlight went out and they provided a partial refund, however this was before the keys started to die. I have contacted them again and I will update this review if a replacement is offered and it works better than this unit. I hope this error in manufacturing is resolved soon as this was a great deal and a great product when it was working properly, unfortunately as it stands now though I have to give it 1 egg because of the reliability. If these reliability issues are resolved then it is easily a 5 egg product.

okay product, but could use some work to be truly universal (update: bad logevity)

Aluminum Car CD Slot Mount Cradle Holder Universal Mobile Phone Stand Holder Bracket for iPhone for Samsung GPS Car Holder
Aluminum Car CD Slot Mount Cradle Holder Universal Mobile Phone Stand Holder Bracket for iPhone for Samsung GPS Car Holder

Pros: never dropped my heavy phone in any orientation great idea of using an almost irrelevant CD player slot in todays bluetooth age good fit in every vehicle i've tried it on with supplied rubber shims

Cons: update first: The ball in socket join that supports the phone will wear out if you have a phone while going over a bumpy road. I dont think this is adjustable and its currently very floppy now and only usable in certain positions. lowered from 3 to 2 eggs I need to truly max out the gripper to hold my phone. (note 9 with otterbox case), this might be why I have my other issue. The adhesive holding the rubber pads that hold the phone has slid forward and partially detached from the arms. this might be due to my oversize phone, climate, or both, but I have to fully open the arms and force my phone into the arms.

Overall Review: Overall its a good product. sturdy, ingenious, and highly functional. Note: this isnt a complaint but i highly recommend removing the holder from the CD slot to reposition the vertical part of the holder. Its VERY rigid and adjusting it in place could potentially damage the CD drive. I see this as a plus as removing it is not difficult (just rock it back and forth a bit to fully seat it into the drive slot) and the benefit of the phone not bouncing around in the slot is far better than the 1 time hassle of positioning it once during setup. Great build quality, but could be made a little wider and with better adhesive. If the company reworks the design and opens up the arms a bit to allow thicker cases then this is a 5star product every time.

Good for what it is, I didnt read the description though.

Rocstor 1 ft DVI-I Analog to 2x VGA Video Splitter Cable - M/F
Rocstor 1 ft DVI-I Analog to 2x VGA Video Splitter Cable - M/F

Pros: Does what it says on the box

Cons: Isn't psychic and doesnt do what it doesnt say on the box

Overall Review: The description states clearly "It is not possible to span an image across 2 monitors or to show different images on each monitor" which was what I needed.
