Gigabyte M7700B Bluetooth Mouse Review

Kk, I got this mouse recently cause I was running out of USB ports and that just gave me a reason to upgrade XD.

Anyways here are the pros and cons of it


  • Portable bluetooth
  • Sensitivity button. 800dpi/1600dpi
  • Laser mouse
  • On/Off button
  • 5 button mouse
  • Its a tad small. Skinny mice?
  • The side buttons are hard to press if you have big hands
  • The scroll button needs some getting used to  

What can I actually write about a mouse? 
Its accurate, laser guided. All the buttons work as designed. The Bluetooth was easy to set up and quick. It doesn't have that red LED light at the bottom as its a laser mouse, so don't go thinking its not working. Cause I did that (blonde moment)

The design is comfortable as there are groves for your thumb and pinky fingers. In the groves there are also rubber fittings for more grip. The mouse sensitivity on 800dpi is actually pretty good but if you are lazy and you don't want to move as much the 1600dpi would suit you better. The mouse runs on 2 AAA batteries which are also included in the packaging. 

Yep, that's all I can think of to tell you guys.

Samsung Series 9 First Impression and Usability

The sample unit comes with Intel i5 2537m, 4GB Ram, 100GB SSD Hard disk and Intel HD Graphics.
Weighing at only a little over 1kg, a bottle of water would weigh about the same.

Well first thing I noticed was how damn thin the laptop was. It can easily beat netbooks in the lack of thickness. It ain't easy to comprehend how thin this 13'inch laptop is until you actually see it. The design is sleek and sexy but the one thing I noticed which was missing from normal laptops was the connectivity ports usually found at the sides of normal laptops. Ports on the Series 9 are cleverly hidden on both sides. Just pull down at the side and the ports would show. Since the laptop is also made of that duralumin airplane thing, you can feel very little flex, very sturdy. The Duralumin is a little sharp at the sides so you might feel it poking you sometimes and it may be scratch proof but not finger print proof.

The portability theme is also carried over to the connectivity ports. Besides the 2 normal sized USB 3.0 ports (one USB can charge your mp3 even when turned off), everything else is downsized and dependent on wireless connectivity. On the left, 1 mini HDMI, 1 USB and 1 mini/ micro network port. Even I haven't seen a mini network port before but here it is.
On the right , 1 USB, 1 audio out/ input (there is only 1 jack. So I guess the mic and headphone needs to be integrated together) and 1 micro SD reader. If this laptop is placed on a table, bigger USB devices would have difficulty connecting to the laptop, such as my mouse dongle.
The laptop does lack a CD/DVD player. So this might be a little troublesome.

Samsung Series 9 First Impression and Usability Coming soon

Hello, well some have mentioned that since I didn't give enough credit to it and some even said its not fair since I don't own one, I have gotten my hands on the Samsung Series 9.

So for this whole week. I am gonna bring it around and use it.
So no geeky specs, all I am gonna write about is the impression and how the laptop works out under daily conditions of a teen/uni student.

Give me a few days and some time to write up the post. For all you planning to get this laptop but still need a user review on it?
Well here it is!
**UPDATED** Here it is! LINK LINK

Samsung GalaxyS - Forgetting to disable lagfix before flashing.

Okay, title says it all. I did exactly that and I payed the price of solving the hell out of that problem...
So much for updating to Android 2.3 without a problem..

Anyways for those who has done this. Don't worry, it can be saved. If you dare try it for yourself.

Symptoms -

  • Boots to the Samsung Phone model screen then it would hang and restarts again
  • Boots to the shining Samsung logo then hanging and repeats itself.

Don't panic just yet.
All you need to do is download Odin v1.8 + .pit file + a PDA file + Phone file and CSC file. 
There are forums on the net which would let you download all these with the instructions. 

Just choose the android version you want. Make sure you have the .pit file. *important*
Open Odin and CHECK Re-partition. 
Usually you don't check it but under such a case, you MUST check it.

Then connect your phone, select all the files at the correct locations and click Start.
Let it run and don't touch anything. Within 10 minutes, your phone should have rebooted itself. 
*note* for the first boot, it would take much longer at the Samsung logo screen. So be patient. 

That should be all.
That was what I did and it worked. 
Remember to read through a few forums before doing it.
*may not for you, so do at your own risk*

Samsung's 2011 netbook sneak peek coming soon!

Okay I have just had the chance to see the new netbooks from Samsung.
It has not yet been officially been launched yet and the specs are also not out yet. 

I will however be able to play around with it when it reaches my hands. So I will be able to give you a hands on write up about the feel and touch of the netbooks. Since usually the specs can always be found online. 

There were 2 models, one running on the new MeeGo OS and the other would be the FIRST netbook with a Solar Panel. 

But till then, here are the 2 pictures I took to tease your senses. 

More will be revealed when I get my hands on the netbooks. Can't wait!
