CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS
So in my conclusion about this product I will try to be
as nice as I can while still telling you the truth. The A4Tech NB-30
should not be bought by anyone, under any circumstances. I can't say
it any nicer without lying to everyone who reads this review. The only
thing I see that is a good point to this product is that the mouse looks
The mouse pad is small for even the average home/business
user and I won't even go into the use of this mouse if it were used
in a gaming situation, as it would just be a death sentence. On the
mouse pad itself there is a rather overzealous advertisement logo for
A4Tech's website making the aesthetics a little cheap looking, and to
top it all off, the mouse did not even work after a full day.
The image shown is my hand on the mouse, but only to pick
it up to throw it into the closet never to be seen again.
*Editor's Addition: Since finding out the problems
experienced by the reviewer, I contacted the A4tech to see if possibly
we got a defective unit. With no reply after over a week we had no other
option but to post the review "as-is" and state how the product
in hand performed. This is a good sign of some serious lacking in the
public relations department. When I email about a problem, I expect
a reply back within a couple of days, not two weeks.
We at Tweaknews are not going to not post a review
