Officeworks Healy Computer Desk Review


Healy Computer Desk

Well I bought the desk I saw a week or so ago. Here’s what I thought of it:


Great price, stylish yet simple, Sturdy but flexible.

Colouring is quite nice; quite realistic, although it hasn’t quite been finished properly (bits of the veneering are rough around the edges).
Biggest issue I had was how to build the thing. Instructions weren’t very explicit and I would dearly like to know why they chose allen headed screws.

Other than that, it fits my gaming keyboard and mouse easily side by side, and the keyboard tray slides all the way in. I would rather the keyboard tray was deeper so that It would be a bit more stable and for extra paper space but that’s just me.

If you see this desk at the Officeworks store, I wouldn’t take that as a good indication of the actual quality of this desk. I went to 2 different stores and both were a very poor representation (broken caster wheels, scratched veneer etc.) The actual desk is fine (I can’t even see how you could break the caster wheels off)

Last thing I guess is annoying is the height. I would have liked it to be a little taller. I’ve got a high-back leather chair and it basically needs to be on the lowest hight to fit my legs comfortably.

Anyway, overall I am quite satisfied and definitely recommend this desk to anyone with space constraints and looking for a budget option!

Logitech M950 Performance Mouse Review


First thing I should say is: This is a GREAT mouse.

Logitech M950 Performance Mouse

Logitech M950 Performance Mouse

I’ve always used Microsoft mice (since I ditched a Logitech set that needed new batteries one a week), my last being the Wireless Laser 3000 set. This purchase (along with the G510) marks my return to Logitech products.
That said, there is an issue with functionality.

The biggest problem I have is reaching the forward button. I can reach it fine when I use a gaming grip (using my whole palm), but when I’m just gripping it lightly (with my palm lightly – which is most natural, for me), I cannot reach the forward button.

I know this is a performance mouse, and it’s primarily for gaming (and it does gaming really well by the way), but even gamers browse the internet, read documents/email etc. Anyway, I changed the assignments so that the zoom button is back and the back button to forward; It works fine that way, and I’m okay with it.

Now the bad stuff is out of the way there’s plenty of good stuff to comment on.

Firstly, the accurateness of this mouse, its just awesome (compared any other mice I’ve ever tried). Then there’s the hyper-scrolling, its awesome, and great if your a fiddler like I am :D. Next, there’s the recharging function, very convenient and means this mouse could even pay for itself in batteries.Lastly, the unifying adapter; Damn its small! And although it doesn’t penetrate my PC’s case and the desk very well, its small enough to go in the front USB port, allowing the signal to have a clear line of site.

Overall, I’m very happy with this mouse and would happily recommend it to anyone.
Well done Logitech!
