Product Review: V2 Pro Series 3

V2 Cigs have been around for years they were one of the original electronic cigarette manufacturers and are known around the world as makers of high quality electronic cigarettes. The V2 Pro Series 3 is perfect vape for all your stealth vaping needs, as it looks like a regular electronic cigarette and doesn’t produce much visible vapor. You can also easily switch the cartridges around depending on what you choose to vape. However, because of this small size, it also has a small capacity, so this is really for more of a solo vaper.

In e-cigarette mode, the V2 Pro shines, besting other e cigs that are in its class and price range with good vapor production. Those who prefer a hit akin to traditional cigarettes will enjoy the V2 Pro immensely. There is also a ten-second cut-off time to prevent e-liquid from tasting burnt. The tank attachment for this device are quite impressive. Unlike other tanks where I have experience several leaks while testing, the V2 Pro proves it’s a solid Vape pen. Clouds are not as massive as other e-cigarettes and tank combos, but the vapor it delivers is warm and satisfying to the user.

The V2 Pro features a two minute automatic shut off which to help minimize incidents of overheating over using the battery.  The magnetic connection of a V2 Cigs 3-in-1 removes threading issues and also unifies the exterior appearance of this electronic cigarette/vaporizer. The connection is made sturdier by the fact that your cartridge slots into a portal shaped to accept its size and shape. All cartridges feature the same dimensions, but smart technology differentiates each one for the benefit of V2 Cig’s Pro Series 3 rechargeable battery.

If you’re looking for an affordable pen vaporizer with stealth in mind, or a pen that can do dry herbs, this is the vape for you. For $59.99, you can own the base. But it’s useless without at least one cartridge since no other company has introduced magnetic connections yet. That’s the price you pay to replace your battery when it runs out of juice. A starter kit costs $62.26 and features the e liquid cartridge with a USB charger cable. Add a Loose Leaf cartridge for $26.92 and an essential oil version for the same price.

I was pleasantly surprised by the life of their Pro Series 3 battery as it lasted my entire day (roughly 8 hours of sporadic use) it lasts a long time. E liquid lasts long enough to get up to 800 puffs out of a full cartridge. While the Series 3 may not be the best at everything, it does a lot. If you need a vape that can do it all, and you don’t want multiple units, this is probably one of the best vaporizers to buy. Click here to buy.

Pros

  • Ultra small and compact
  • Very discreet and stealthy, looks like an electronic cigarette
  • Vapes dried herb evenly and thoroughly
  • Can be used with e-liquid
  • Components clip together magnetically
  • Can be used while charging
  • Charger connects to regular USB (adaptor available for car lighter)
  • One of the best vapes in it’s price range
  • Doesn’t burn herb like most vape pens

Cons

  • Features only one temperature setting

  • Ring around the mouthpiece gets quite hot after extended use
  • Battery only lasts about 30-45 minutes per charge

Product Feature: V2 VERTX PLUS

The VERTX PLUS brings some of the technologies that were pioneered with the V2 Pro series like the magnetic connections, drop-in cartridges and higher vapor production, to name a few examples. The VERTX PLUS is an upgraded version with variable power levels whose costs comes in at around $90. One of the VERTX PLUS cartridge should be more than sufficient for a full day of vaping (while using the lowest setting). A battery charge lasts for hours, but you aren’t in doubt of the charge life because of lights along the side of the device. The body of the VERTX PLUS has a window on the side that allows you to see the remaining e-liquid easily without removing the cartridge from the e-cig.

The vapor production of the VERTX PLUS is excellent. V2 also produces blank cartridges so that you can even use your own favorite e-cig juice in it. But if you want the prepackaged flavors they are Congress, V2 Red, Sahara, Menthol, Green Tea Menthol and Peppermint. The flavors are exactly the same as the ones that V2 sells by the bottle and in cartridge form for the original V2 Cigs e-cigarette. The VERTX PLUS cartridges of all that I have used have to be the most reliable ones to date. Even more during my testing, I didn’t experience a single “dry hit” at any voltage level. The cartridges are about as leak-free as one could ask given the amount of liquid that they hold. The air tube leading out of the cartridge does tend to collect a bit of condensation, though, so you can expect a drip here or there if the VERTX spends too much time upside down.

The VERTX PLUS is a superb e-cigarette for beginners and is a device that’s positioned to give you the best performance possible while staying within the new regulations that the FDA has set forth. So, if you’re a smoker who wants to switch to e-cigarettes right now, there is probably no better choice than the V2 VERTX PLUS. Click here to buy.

Product Feature: V2 Pro Series 7 Vaporizer Kit

When it comes to vaporizers, I have been on the search for the perfect tool. V2 is a company that I found and and offers one hell of a product. That product is the V2 Pro Series 7 Kit includes everything . This is the one-stop tool for all your vaping needs. Some of the new features include like variable voltage and temperature settings. These are items that I specifically look for in a vaporizer. Another outstanding feature on the Series 7 is that it has a bigger storage capacity and solid battery life.

If you are familiar with the Series 3 vape pen then this is not new for I zoned in on the Series 7 since it offers cartridges for for add-on like loose leaf, e-liquid and wax. If you purchase this kit above that we are feature luckily it comes with both the e-liquid and loose leaf cartridges. Otherwise, they the cartridges are available to purchase individually. But let me tell you have these three cartridges today makes this the one of the best choices for all-in-one vaporizers.

One of my main urks about this product originally was the button pressing to get to where you need to get. I am used to it now and definitely have no issue but it did take a little bit to become a habit. To turn it on you have to click fast five times. Then you have to press two more times within a half a second…(Confused a little?)…then still flashing each of the three lines and you will be able to press it again when the level you want is lit. Lastly, once your temperature is chosen you hold the button for about 5-7 seconds which will turn on the heater. It turns off about a short period on its own and you press the button three times to turn it fully off and you will see a red light flash.

Overall, I have been very satisfied so far with this product. Once you get used to the routine above it just feels natural and I was worried at first it would be annoying but honestly not at all. I also love that the Series 7 has this smart technology so that it recognizes which cartridge type you have inserted and automatically heat to optimum vaporizing temperature. This allows you to just relax and enjoy!

Product Review “Parrot Mambo”

Having Owned several drones and RC toys in my past I would best describe as a very suitable pick-up and fly mini drone. Parrot Did a great job on this drone of making it user friendly to the point of pairing it to your phone and in 3 seconds your flying around with ease. Now while the Parrot Mambo is close to your typical quadcopter drone, Parrot made sure to tuck in a few extra goodies to make it an even better buy at the under $150 range.

Below are some of the key features of the Parrot Mambo:

  • High Performance Sensors For Stability
  • Easily Do Flips and Stunts With the Push of a Button
  • Remotely Fired Cannon With 6 Shot Capacity (1 Shot every 1.5 seconds)
  • Remotely Triggered Grabber That Can Carry Up To 4 gram objects
  • Ability to Toss To Takeoff
  • Pilot with Free iOS or Android App
  • Fly With Optional Parrot Flypad
  • 65 Foot range with Smartphone, 200 Foot range with Flypad
  • 1 Year Support and Assistance Warranty

As parrot continues to push it affordable line of drones with the Mambo (seeing as how other drones can run 300 and up). Coming in at only 15cm the parrot Mambo pack a lot of power in a little frame. The body is made to withstand some punishment (the average user would see a long life form the drone) while Parrot included the options for guards or no guards (hull) to keep the weary mind at bay. I even noticed during prolonged use that I hit a wall and bent one propeller but thanks to the materials used by Parrot the blades damage almost fixed itself as if it never happened (may just be a one instance thing but the strength of the blades on the propellers seem stronger than the normal).

When it comes to flight you’ll notice right away that the Mambo is easy to control for even the newest drone users. The Mobile app used to fly the drone come pre-programmed with a handful of flight maneuvers for your Mambo to do with just a push and even just sitting around and trying to do trick over stuff can be extremely entertaining. Now while I’d like to see more out of the battery life it excusable seeing how much power this little guy put’s out. Also Parrot includes a pair of batteries to switch out for longer flights. But extra batteries can always be purchased. The 9 minutes of flying time per charge may not seem like much at first but when you compare that to other mini-drone’s it stacks up pretty good and even gives you enough time to really enjoy what its capable of before it comes time to charge up again.

The extra fun comes with the Mambas add-ons that Parrot included and even featured in their video demo station on their site. With the Cannon it was very surprising to see the amount of force that it can produce fun for an obstacle course. Followed by using the Arm attachment to garb little things and carry them to you drones next destination (like say your spare battery.. just joking). So for those who are looking to have a little bit of fun with their new purchase they’ll find that the Mambo has some interesting features which you will not find on your typical drone for a very affordable price.

Product Review “Razer Ornata Mecha-Membrane Keyboard”

Razer has consistently been one of the biggest names in the world when it comes to gaming, they’ve developed all types of award-winning products throughout the years, such as their mechanical keyboards, gaming headsets, mice and more. Having always been a company that pushes innovation in their designs. Normally, you choose a rubber dome membrane keyboard for comfort, while mechanical switches are usually favored for precise and fast response with distinct tactile feedback. The Razer Mecha-Membrane of the Ornata chroma uses a unique mid-height keycap hybrid that delivers a level of efficiency and comfortability unlike any key type on the market.

Tech specs for this new keyboard:

  • Razer Mecha-Membrane technology,
  • Mid-height keycaps,
  • Razer Chroma backlighting,
  • Ergonomic wrist rest,
  • Razer Synapse enabled,
  • Full programmable keys with on the fly macro recording,
  • 10-key roll over,
  • Dedicated Gaming Mode,
  • Anti-ghosting capability for up to 10 simultaneous key presses.

Additional features include macro recording, adjust brightness, and a Gaming mode toggle that allows users to press up to 10 keys simultaneously during gameplay.

The Razer Ornata brings a great balance between a gaming and work device. Its complete design is subtle and sleek, without an abundance of bright logos or visual cues that emphasize it’s a gaming keyboard. Razer has delivered and deserves credit for bringing a new style of keyboard to the forefront, we can expect there to be many imitations to come. IN the end though the Ornata’s comfort and performance are simply unbeatable.

Product Review “Elite Pro Tournament Headset”

 

Turtle Beach is a brand that’s long been in the headset game, and they have had their fair share of competition. The Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament headset, as its name suggests, targets gamers who aim to play at a professional level. This Headset is uses a strong frame of metal, that encompasses most of the headset. Though the usual areas still have other parts such as the ear cup covers. But overall at first glance it seems to be a headset meant to survive consistent use.

A feature that I truly appreciated was the ability to pop off the ear cushions and with the flip of a switch cause an indent in them that’s designed to allow glasses to be worn comfortably with the headset. This actually removed pressure, where other headsets would create after long use. During gaming the headset sounds great at any rate, personally I would have like some more on the low ends but with its design offering impressive noise cancelling that helps to make its output more impressive. And the clarity of the mic paired with the TAC create clear precise audio for you and your team.

The Elite package comes with the Tactical Audio Controller (TAC) which adds even more options by using a Powered mixer. The TAC headset offers simulated 7.1 surround sound through 16 surround sound presets. If you’re an upcoming eSports star, the Elite Pro headset is slowing making its way up to the standard for audio. Now the Price tag is on the high end but a lower price would mean losing out on features. Final verdict is that with a little lower price it could be the Must-Have for the year.

 

Product Feature: Halloween at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store

When the holiday seasons roll around I just can’t wait to go into my local Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. You walk in their store and you are immediately whammed with some of the most creative and fun decorations for any upcoming holiday. I am the kind of person that would loop the Fall/Holiday season over and over if possible, so when you walk into the store in August and see Halloween already decked out ready I melt! And if the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store knows how to do one thing it is Halloween! They setup one of the coolest displays for their merchandise. My daughter usually b-lines to it to check out all the amazing new items.

This year, I had the chance to review seven of the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store’s latest new products and like usual, all fantastic as usual. The first was my four year old’s choice, “Animated Halloween Puppy“. This trick-or-treating doggy aka Candy Bandit is literally one of the cutest animated toys, I have ever seen! And if it wasn’t cute enough it runs around the floors or table and plays “The Addams Family” theme! SOLD!

Next up is a “Light-Up Witch Wreath“, this is a cute door wreath for the Halloween season. There is something I love about this wreath on my first door, it is not scary-scary but it is fun and maybe a little silly and I just know that if anyone is coming to my door it is impossible not to realize and smile at for sure!

Animated Eyeball Doorbell” is one item that was NOT my four year old’s favorite due to being “too scary” but honestly that is a score for daddy cause that means that it is effective. This went right outside our door as well and I know that it has already given a few fun jumps to our friends and family, which makes me love it even more!

Who doesn’t love Peanuts and their wonderful characters? Cracker Barrel Old Country Store always has the cutest Peanuts animated figures. The latest is an “Animated Glow-in-the-Dark Snoopy“, which you immediately fall in love with! I have gotten a Snoopy animated character from Cracker Barrel Old Country Store for the last three years now and each of them are better than the next. It has music, it dances (or should I say wiggles) and the glowing in the dark is just a bonus! A must have for any Peanuts fans out there!

Having a young child and being a big Halloween fan sometimes might be difficult because you have to balance the scary factor and can’t get something that will terrify for kids. The “Metal Witch Leg Yard Stake” from Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is a great product that fits right in for that balance. It is extremely fun and honestly just cracks me up everything time I walk outside (as it does my daughter). Plus it doesn’t take up a lot of outdoor space and is extremely easy to stake in the ground.

If you are looking for a little decor around the house for the subtle Halloween touch, look no further than the “Light-Up Witches Brew Potion Jar“. This light up jar is a cute way to dress up your house in addition to light it up. It gives off a nice amount of light and adds a nice Halloween accent to our counter.

Last item of the season that we had the chance to feature is also one of my favorites, the “‘Welcome My Pretties’ Wall Decor“. Since we have our front door occupied with the Light-Up Witch Wreath, our pantry door is covered with this fun decor. This piece just screams “Welcome Halloween” for me! It is fun and we have it placed in a great spot in our house and every time I see it I definitely just smile and it makes it laugh. I like to always image that a witch literally flew into our door…SMOOSH! It is reasonably priced, in fact that bring up a great point about Cracker Barrel Old Country Store that their prices are very competitive. You go to Target or Wal-Mart and sure they might have “cheap” Halloween decoration but you are getting that exactly CHEAP in quality. Everything sold at the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store seems like it is much higher than the plain ole garage you will find at those stores.

That is also one of the things that I loved about the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is that they don’t recycle all of last years crap that didn’t sell, I always feel like they have a wide variety of new products each season as well and as a consumer that makes me very satisfied. So you may not think of Cracker Barrel Old Country Store as your first stop to check out the latest holiday products but honestly it should be because this store has it all and you will have a hard time leaving without a purchase once you walk in! We should have our Christmas coverage up first week in November covering all the great new Cracker Barrel Old Country Store products as well, so stay tuned!

Product Review “Zen MONQ Aromatherapy Inhaler”

Who says ads that you read on Facebook aren’t effective?! I came across the company MONQ from one of those very ads. What is MONQ? Well it is an aromatherapy inhaler…right away you are thinking…an e-cigarette? No, it’s not! It has 0 tobacco, 0 nicotine and 0 additives. So simply it is just a personal portable devices that is used to enhance your mood with blended and heated aromatherapy. 100% Organic and Natural.

How does this differ from your typical topical oils or household diffusers is that MONQ directly inserts aromatherapy into your olfactory system. So there is no only no harm to your body say instead of vaping or smoking but this product actually helps you find purity, sharpness, and coherence through their mentally relaxing blends which are made from raw plants that have been used throughout throughout history for meditative practices.

The first blend that I was given to try is “Zen MONQ” is said to actually lowers stress levels! Now who doesn’t need a little of that?! Well let me tell you it does actually do what it says it does. I was very impressed with this product. The MONQ Therapeutic Air device are single use and approximately 150 breaths with most lasting between 1-2 weeks. There is no buttons. No charging. No stress. Just breathe in and relax!

The Zen MONQ is made up of the following scents Frankincense / Orange and Ylang-ylang. It smells fantastic and gives off a really nice vapor quantity as well when exhaled. So I like to call this the even healthier way to “smoke”, especially if you are trying to break that habit or fill the need to do so. I found myself very relaxed when testing this product and I am very excited to be trying the other blends as well, so stay tuned to find out more!

Just a closing note, just so that there is no confusion you do not need to be a smoker/ex-smoker or anything to enjoy this product at all. If anyone is looking to inspire some peace and calm feelings and looking for natural clarity that I highly recommend checking out this product ASAP! Go to https://monq.com/ and tell them Media Mikes sent you!

Product Review “Cloud V Phantom Dry Herb Vaporizer”

I have tested out many different Vaporizers over the last year and I haven’t really been 100% satisfied….that is until I found the Cloud V Phantom Premium Herbal Vaporizer. The Cloud V Phantom is easily the best and easiest product that I have used to date. It features an optimized heating chamber and really sleek thin durable design. I simply love the look of it. Ease of use is also what you are looking for with a vaporizer and this one is as easy as they can.

The Cloud V Phantom has three heating temperature settings. All you have to do is load your product, press it three times to turn it on and get it started and then up the temperature that you enjoy. It delivered a smooth even hit every time. The battery also lasted a decent time and did not require constant charging. The cleaning of the product was also very easy and make no mess.

When you are looking for a vaporizer, you also need to be concerned with the output smell. Even though with using a vaporizer, you don’t get the same intensity of smell, so of them do not handle the smell well. This device did a great job of heating up without combustion. It also has a very handy auto shutoff time. If you are looking for a perfect introduction to vaping, I would highly recommend this product.

Product Review: Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum Wireless Gaming Headset

If you are a gamer, one of the most important pieces of equipment besides the controller is your headset. If you are playing games that require precision sound that you need to make sure you have the best. Look no further to Logitech, this month they have released the G933 Artemis Spectrum Wireless Gaming Headset, just in time for the holidays. Look no further, since this is no question, the best headset I have seen in 2015. Every year, the tech get better as does the headset and each year these companies are making impressing buyers with new features and no one does it better than Logitech.

Before reviewing this product, I was able to get on the phone with one of the key developers of this outstanding headset and got an inside look into its key features and unique abilities. What makes this headset better than others and worth taking a look at? Well, it features brand new Patent pending advanced Pro-G™ audio drivers which are only available in this headset. These are made with hybrid mesh materials deliver super performance and unprecedented audio quality. I was literally blown away by this one feature alone! Whether you are listening to music or playing a video game, this unit deliver both clean and accurate highs as well as a deep rich bass.

Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum Wireless Gaming Headset allows you to experience incredible 7.1 surround sound with Dolbyreg; or DTS Headphone:X Surround Sound. Of course you need to have Logitech Gaming Software to get 7.1 sound but it is totally worth it because you are able to create an outstanding in-game awareness, hearing every branch cracking and noise possible. Another benefit of this unit is that it simply supported all game platforms. One headset to rule them all! This works with PC, mobile, home theater devices, and game consoles, most important supporting BOTH PS4 and Xbox One.

One of the important questions that I had for the developer of the product when we spoke was about the how clear the communication was on the foldaway, noise-cancelling mic. Well as he explained and as it turned out it is absolutely crystal clear. Testing it out, I found that it was clearing that even my cell phone at times. The boom is removable as well which is cool if you don’t want it in your face or you can fold it back as well.

Listen if you are planning on wearing this headset for hours at a time also or even longer (if you have a few days off from work and no plans), you are going to need comfort. The G933 Artemis Spectrum is designed for long gaming sessions. It is extremely comfortable and relaxed on your head. It uses new sports mesh materials in the ear cups and headband are soft and breathable for maximum comfort. The over-the-ear ear cups designed to fit around most ears without applying pressure on soft tissues. My ears are very sensitive and hurt easily with headsets usually and I actually forgot that I was wearing it at one time during my testing. Plus if you like to keep clean, the ear cups can be removed from the headset and washed (but you know you will never use that).

For those that like customizing your lights and tabs, the G933 Artemis Spectrum has customizable lighting zones, including the light strip and logo. You are able to customize each zone and program them to different colors or effects as well as even have them synchronized. There is also no shortage in options, the adjustable RGB lighting lets you select from up to 16.8 million colors. I have never been huge with this feature but users that like syncing their equipment lights will love this.

Keeping with customization, you are able able to assign custom commands using Logitech Gaming Software on the three programmable G-keys. This will allow you to move around seamlessly between your gaming and media experience. Some of the custom controls you can play with are controls for each audio profiles, skipping to the next song, activating push-to-talk communication, in-game trigger instant command combinations, and more. You can also use the Logitech Gaming Software to program the audio equalizer and pre-set audio preferences for music, games and movies.

Whether you want to use this headset wired or wirelessly, you can choice either one. Even though it is wireless, you will get a lag-free experience on 2.4GHz wireless for up to 12 hours per charge, without lighting, or if not 8 hours, with default lighting. So honestly just expect to recharge this headset after every use because who is going to use default settings and use less than 8 hours if you got a good session going. If you don’t want to use wireless, the 3.5mm analog input on the headset allows you to use wired without using battery power. So if you are looking for a perfect gift this season, look no further.

Product Review “Kodak PixPro SP360 with Extreme Accessory Pack”

If you are an active person, in this day and time, who does have a GoPro? Well Kodak has released the the Kodak PixPro SP360 to deliver a new angle in active lifestyle filming. I have used the GoPro cameras in the past and I was really excited of the concept of a 360 degree panorama handheld mini camera. The idea is cool but the product itself is a bit of a let down. Firstly, it is not user friendly AT ALL! It is extremely frustrating to setup and use.

There is no screen on this unit, which makes it even harder to navigate the menus in order to get this to function. Through either Wi-Fi or NFC (if you can get it setup), in order to see the images you need to use the PIXPRO Remote Viewer App on your iOS/Android device. I honestly wasn’t even satisfied with the quality of the images and video taken with this device. It is said to come with an advanced MOS sensor with 16 MP but I just felt that it looked less than par. I have seen many output results from GoPros and I was never disappointed to date. 

I feel like I should still list some of the feature this comes with multiple viewing modes including Ring, Dome, Front Degree/Rear 180 Degree, 360 Degree Panorama, Globe. It is also 2m Shockproof, -10 Degree Freeze proof, Dustproof and Splash Resistant.  Extreme Accessory Pack 16 MP Camera with 1x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom with 1-Inch LCD. The Extreme Accessory Pack includes the following: (1) Standard Housing, (1) Waterproof Housing, (1) Suction Cup, (1) Bar Mount, (1) Vented Helmet Strap for Top Facing, (1) Vented Helmet Strap for Front Facing, (1) Head Strap, (1) Surfboard Adhesive Mount, (1) Flat Adhesive Mount, (1) Curved Adhesive Mount, (2) Extended Arms, (1) Quick Clip.

So there is definitely is some expansion if you want to take this on the road with you but honestly, I would just stick with your every day GoPros this is a trying to be a replacement or an alternative but it really doesn’t come close in quality to it. The price is pretty low, so if you are able to pick up one use or cheap to try, it couldn’t hurt to play with but I wouldn’t rely on it for your big trip since you will end up being disappointed with the end result for sure.

 

Product Feature: LEGO Halloween 2015 Monster Minifigures Collection

Halloween is just around the corner and LEGO is at it again delivering a great collection of collectible minifigures for the season. Halloween is easily one of my favorite times of the year and I look forward to seeing what LEGO has planned for this time of the year. 71010 Minifigures Series 14 is a series of sixteen mini-figures released in September 2015. This new Halloween-themed fourteenth series of LEGO’s Minifigures are a real treat for horror fans and come housed in traditional blind-bag packaging.

We had the chance to check out in advance three of these awesome new minifigures in this collection. The first is the Fly Monster, which looks super slick and had awesome red eyes, a red claw and wings. Really well done. The next is the Plant Monster, which is a really cool number. This has a feel like a plant ate a human and then formed around him against his will. I love the face and the hands. The last one is the Wolf Guy, which doesn’t have nards (ode for all you The Monster Squad fans), but it does have a cool bone accessory and it’s name is Kel. Great quality and detail on these.

The rest of the sixteen minifigures including: Banshee, Gargoyle, Monster Rocker, Monster Scientist, Skeleton Guy, Specter, Spider Lady, Square Foot, Tiger Woman, Wacky Witch, Zombie Businessman, Zombie Cheerleader and a Zombie Pirate. These are overall a great highlight for the Halloween season and I am dying to see what they come up with next either for future holidays or special events. There is something about minifigures that are so cool and even though they aren’t with a specific set you can use your imagination and do anything with them.

Product Review: Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse

The brand new Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse has been billed as the “Most Advanced Portable Mouse…Designed to Work Anywhere You Do”. Being an IT guy, I love new tech. If you use computers you also realize how important mice are to your job. You need to have a good one if you want to make your life each. The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse hits stores this month with a very reasonable retail price of $79.99.

We all know what a mouse is used for (hopefully), so I will discuss some of the neat features that this new “advanced” mouse has. Firstly it has an advanced Darkfield™ Laser Sensor is made to be used on physically ANY surface…that includes glass..yes GLASS!! No more mouse bad needed for those with a glass table. It has a nice compact size , a contoured shape and a rubber surface that makes it use very user friendly.

If you are a fan of Logitech mice then you will realize that the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse is actually a more mobile version of their award-winning MX Master Wireless Mouse. A real important feature of the mouse is that it has dual-connectivity and connects easily to easiy Windows or Mac computers through the Pico Unifying Receiver (included) or through Bluetooth Smart technology. Either one works great and is extremely easily to connect. Another awesome feature is that you can pair the MX Anywhere 2 with up to three devices at once, this is an awesome feature if you are taking this mouse on the go and moving it from machine to machine.  With the touch of the Logitech Easy-Switch button you can easily switch.

If you are on the computer all day like myself, then you are used to scrolling non-stop through your Facebook page or through ending websites. This mouse’s scroll wheel is equipped with hyper-fast scrolling, so you can easily browse your sites easily and then shift to click-­to-­click mode for precise navigation. Lastly the most important part for a wireless mouse is do I need batteries? or does it charge? The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse has a rechargeable battery lasts up to two months elimating the new for replacing batteries often. It if you need quick results only one single minute of USB-cord charging actually ends up giving you up to two hours of usage. I recommend this for sure.

Product Review “Reebok Shaq Attaq IV”

 

Growing up being an Orlando Magic fan, you gotta give it to Shaquille O’Neal man. The guy is long retired from the game of basketball and yet his presence is no less important in the business. Like Air Jordan’s the Shaq Attaq is back and still just as cool. The shows are just slick looking. No BS either. They are blank and simple black and white and they own it. It is a bold shoe for a bold person.

I love the high-top look and I am happy that it has never gone away. These sneakers are Insta Pump-equipped with leather and mesh upper for comfort, support, and breathability. The Pump P107 collar technology is a nice way to add custom fit for the shoe and I really enjoy this feature. These also have a hexalite cushioning system for supreme underfoot comfort.

I am usually not huge on signature sneakers but Reebok really delivers these with a good price of around $140 bucks, which ain’t too bad. They also sport the retro Shaq’s signature “dunking” logo on the tongue and the Reebok logo on the ankle as well. These are shoes that will be you some attention I guarantee it. I have never or will never be a basketball player but these shoes are hot and I can’t wait to show them off.

Product Review “Ray-Ban New Wayfarer”

I don’t know what it is but myself (and my entire family) have always been a fan of Ray-Ban sunglasses. I think it was the durable and reliable. The latest Ray-Ban model, New Wayfarer (RB2132 52), really interested me. They are very simple and yet so elegant and sleek. When you look at they they aren’t fancy at all yet, I could see some heads turn when you are wearing them.

There are two different color options available Black/Green and Brown/Green. I would, no question, prefer the Black/Green. I have never been a big fan of Brown sunglasses. The frame material is plastic and the lens are glass, so they hold up well to wear and tear. I give my sunglasses quite the challenge, so I trust that these will not let down.

The new model is a slightly smaller interpretation-size 52mm- take on the well known style. The Ray-Ban  logo is displayed prominently for those that care about branding.  One of the real sellers for this updated model is that they come with polarized lenses, which allow for ultimate clarity and enhanced vision. I rely on my sunglasses a lot and these are worth every penny.
