This review is from: GIGABYTE GM-M6980X Black 9 Tilt Wheel USB Wired Pro-Laser 5600 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: - Very comfortable fit for my large hands
- Love the gripping on the sides
- The non-slick coating is a huge bonus and leaves a great texture
Cons: The Ghost software for the mouse could be better. The UI is ugly and dated (think Doom-era games), and the copy/paste functions don't work properly under certain circumstances.
I use this mouse at work where I'm a graphic designer and the copy/paste function is very important. But when it comes to copy/paste vectors, images, text, etc in and out of the Adobe suite, I might as well not even have assigned the buttons.
This is the first mouse I've experienced this glitch with and I really hope it's the last.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I love the mouse; I just wish the Ghost software was better.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This monitor is light, thin, and easy to transport. When it's on sale, its price is pretty decent for the size.
Cons: I mostly bought this monitor for its size and the price it was at during the time of purchase. It was an upgrade from a 16". Over past couple of years that I've owned it, I've definitely noticed a quality drop, even from the previous monitor. No matter the viewing angle, settings adjustments, etc, the colors always look washed out. As a graphic designer, this is a huge disadvantage because I can't get a full range of colors. Light colors are essentially white and dark ones might as well be black. Also, whites aren't exactly white either--they're more of a light gray.
I've always been a fan of Acer, but this is just a bit of a disappointment.
Other Thoughts: If you need a large, cheap monitor, this is the one to buy. But if you're using it for anything color-essential, stay clear.READ FULL REVIEW
