A high quality budget microphone.
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.
I want to use a USB keypad to control elements of Open Broadcaster Software.
This guide is good, but my script is very thorough. See key remapping.lua
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.
I have trust issues with all storage, but flash memory-based storage is particularly unreliable.
TL;DR - Stubby metal drives are a problem.
Note that solid state thumb drives exist; use them.
When a USB stick has been used for, say, a bootable Linux distribution, it usually cannot be re-used as a mass storage device by, say, Windows. These instructions are to wipe/reset a usb stick so it will work as it used to.

Herein are notes of my misadventure.
- You own a PlayStation 2
You own official PlayStation 2 discs
- PlayStation 1 discs will also be researched.
The use cases are much the same as with DVD ripping:
- Back discs up before disc rot sets in.
Rip discs and keep them safe
- e.g. parents with little kids who damage discs.
Playing on a PlayStation 2 which has a broken DVD drive.
I never really got around to pursuing this as a proper project.
