A document camera.

On-device buttons, optical zoom, native H.264 hardware.

Garbage; do not buy this overpriced toy. It's only "good" because it comes with a stand, but newer webcams are coming out with the threading for mounting to a simple $20 stand.

An E-book reader.

Because this is my first e-reader, I can't judge it against it's peers. It works well.

It is spectacular hardware-wise. Its software works, but it is sometimes obviously or even critically lacking. It lacking a file browser and respecting directories is bad enough that I can't really use it for its intended purpose, and almost regret buying it.

intel-ssd-320-series-image

An fast, moderate-sized and extraordinarily cheap drive.

Refurbished, but these seem to be in good shape. Don't expect the intel manufacturer's warranty to have much, if any, time left. You're leaning on newegg, and then perhaps your credit card's insurance policy, if it has one.

RT-MWK08 1

https://www.dx.com/p/ipazzport-kp-810-12-wireless-2-4ghz-92-key-keyboard-for-google-tv-player-black-2029602.html

A 92-key wireless keyboard+mouse combination.

With a lithium-ion battery and charging cable, broad compatibility and tiny-but-functional size, this is an inexpensive and handy device.

  • mouse: HID\VID_046D&PID_C01B\6&a742701&1&0000
  • keyboard: HID\VID_413C&PID_2003\6&34a825d5&0&0000
  • Although the box is labelled RT-MWK08, there is no indication of this being a "Rii"
  • Not well tested, but strongly triggers MF sensitivity in my left hand.
  • There are alternate versions of this keyboard: colours, Russian character set, and a 2x AA battery-operated one.
  • I did not require a driver installation for Windows 10.
