pros:
Great ipad case if you're looking for something that has a notepad in it. Makes it easy to take to conferences or use for work (instead of just playing games on it). The pen holder is what you'd expect. If you remove the notepad/pen the case works just as well. The pad side has slits in it (top bottom middle and sides) so you can put other stuff in there, like business cards or non-proprietary notepads. Works perfect for lefties because you can put the ipad upside down and still access all the controls. great case overall.

cons:
no camera hole. pouch that holds the iphone gets a bit loose after a while: ipads in no danger of falling out, just annoying that it has some wiggle room. Really heavy (like triple the weight of the ipad itself), i find myself taking it out to read and stuff, and only putting it in the case when i'm out.

About what you expect. Cheap plastic, shoddy construction, i feel like i'm taking a risk every time i use it; waiting for it to crack under my weight, but it hasn't let me down yet.

You get what you pay for.

High quality and freaking huge coverage. My mouse slides across it like it's lubed up. Definitely would buy it the next time i need a mousepad.

Attracts dirt like a mofo though.

coming from a logitech g35 it was a pleasure. the lights can be annoyingly bright at night but you can disable them.

I used to have the 1800DPI model and liked it so much that i bought a second one (which is now 3500DPI). The 1800dpi one got about 3 years of daily (5 hour+) gaming/browsing use. I never treated it special, i sat on it a few times by accident, dropped it plenty of times and slammed it most of the times i lost a match. After i bought the new one i brought my old one into the office and it's made the transition of gaming to word processing quite well. With the lights off it doesn't even look like a gaming mouse.

My only complaint is the scroll wheel isn't "perfect". By this i mean on both of my models sometimes it'll skip a line (instead of scrolling smoothly). This is rare but annoying. Also with the scroll wheel light on, dirt shows up very easily.

Overall A+++++ will buy again.

Prior to this i had a very very basic understanding of how engines worked, and no clue as to how turbo's worked. This explained how turbos work (and essentially because of this forced you to understand how engines work). I'm glad to say that it taught me everything a beginner would need to know about turbos, many times going beyond my level of understanding.

I learned a lot and i plan on keeping the book to reference in the future. It really helped me understand EXACTLY how and why turbo's work the way they do. I loved every minute of it.
