Your usual WD Drive

WD Red 2TB NAS Internal Hard Drive - 5400 RPM Class, SATA 6Gb/s, SMR, 256MB Cache, 3.5" - WD20EFAX

Pros: - Cheap and good for NAS storage

Cons: - Bought this as replacement to a failed drive, that was a replacement to a failed drive... - Failed drives were eventually replaced per WD warranty, but I couldn't wait for return process to complete as I was at risk of data loss.

Overall Review: - Drive performance as advertised - Reliability is probably on-par with market average (7% of failure?), might just be bad luck, but ...

Most Critical Review

Easy to use, bad quality

Actiontec PWR511K01 AV500 Powerline Network Adapter Kit, Up to 500Mbps
Actiontec PWR511K01 AV500 Powerline Network Adapter Kit, Up to 500Mbps

Pros: - Cheap - Easy to use

Cons: - Failed within a year - Advertised as 500Mbit BUT provides 100Mbit ports... So maximum speed is actually 100Mbit.

Overall Review: Although I was moderately unhappy when I found out the advertised 500Mbits is a lie (provided ethernet ports are 100Mbits, speed is then UP TO 100Mbits, not 500), it was easy to install and worked well for a time... until about 7 month after purchase when the one of the device would no longer turn on. I opened up the case and the capacitors inside are clearly poped out. They probably used the cheapest electronic components available and so it didn't last long. To avoid...

The tiniest of the tiny mouse there is

Logitech 910-002726 Black 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical 1000 dpi Mouse
Logitech 910-002726 Black 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical 1000 dpi Mouse

Pros: - Very tiny - Usual easy-to-use plug-n-play Logitech Dongle - Ideal for travelling or to keep at the bottom of a suitcase

Cons: - Too small to be used confortably for an extended time Please keep in mind this is NOT a mouse you can use for your everyday computing

Overall Review: - Perfect for travelling - Work great

Good ergonomic mouse, good looking, work as advertised

DELUX Wired Gaming Mouse With On-board Memory, 7 Buttons and 4 Adjustable DPI(up to 6400 DPI), Ergonomic Gaming Optical Mouse with Customized Lighting Setting for PC Laptop Computer (M522BU-Black)
DELUX Wired Gaming Mouse With On-board Memory, 7 Buttons and 4 Adjustable DPI(up to 6400 DPI), Ergonomic Gaming Optical Mouse with Customized Lighting Setting for PC Laptop Computer (M522BU-Black)

Pros: - Good looking - Feel confortable in the hand, good size (for my hand anyway) - Mouse config is non-volatile; it does not reset when it loses power. This is great. - Buttons location are perfect, accessible yet they don't get in the way, so no misclick . - Button to increase / decrease DPI works as advertised, it's not another marketing fuss I was surprised!

Cons: - Application to setup the mouse is Windows-only. Forget about your Mac or Linux here - Mouse configs are extensive but I feel like a couple interesting feature had been left out. As example, I'd like the LED to turn off after a certain inactivity delay but it does not seems to be possible.

Overall Review: - Good mouse for its price - Everything works as advertised
