This review is from: Logitech F310 (940-000110) Gamepad
Pros: It's a controller, it has the standard buttons and triggers.
Two joysticks that can click down and a D-pad.
Cons: The controller to me is just not comfortable. My hands felt constricted with the limited room under the triggers. The joysticks are slippery, I always fall off them. The D-pad can be VERY specific on how you press it to get the right response.
Lots of games are not usually configured for this controller, and some get it so wrong its a nightmare.
Other Thoughts: I recently bought the Xbox 360 Wireless controller to replace my Logitech 310. That too is a bit small for my liking, but its a lot more "free", my fingers can hold it different ways to stay comfortable.
The joysticks are also alot more responsive and less slippery. The d-pad i'm not too sure on, i haven't used it much but it seemed responsive, better than the logitech.
So far my games have automatically picked up the xbox controller and had it configured perfectly.
Final words, spend the extra money, do yourself a favor. Get the 360 controller instead.
This review is from: RAZER Mamba Wireless Rechargeable Gaming Mouse
Pros: Adjustable, on the fly mouse sensitivity is nice, the overall feel is very nice, button placement and all is very nice. Being able to be wireless or tethered to a cord is another bonus, along with making the docking / wireless station change to whatever color you desire (or rainbow!) is very nice.... but...
Cons: The wireless... Sometimes the mouse is a perfect gaming mouse, does what I want when I want.... Other times the mouse loses its connection for... about 3-5 seconds until it gets its signal back and resumes functionality.
I have a logitech 310 mouse, not great for gaming but the wireless never cuts out or has any issues... Yet this mouse seems to fall asleep.
Sometimes it happens when i'm not using it (which seems standard) but other times as i'm using it, it'll just stop and need to re-connect.
In very intense gaming situations i've never been able to blame the mouse, but if you stop using it for a second (respawning) you may find that it stops responding for a few seconds. Kinda aggravating, but nothing worth getting a refund. If it gets bad enough I can connect the wire, but that isn't why i bought the mouse. Feel me?
Oh, and also when you change your sensitivity there will be a small pop up that shoes what your current DPI is... Unfortunately mine shows up a good 20-30 seconds after i've set the DPI, and only does so in Windows (not in games).
Other Thoughts: Overall the mouse is fine. Plain and simple it is fine. Feels like my old Death Adder by Razer, but the performance just isn't quite there.
Also the wireless docking station is set in the open, about 4 feet away maybe. The only thing blocking it (maybe) is a small speaker that is turned off, but otherwise its in an open space on a USB 2.0 port.
Overall its a decent mouse for semi-serious gaming. But if you plan to use this for counter-strike, you may want to look elsewhere. Is it me or is Razer losing their integrity quickly and surely?
Pros: I came from AGP to this beast of a card. Any game, ultra high graphics (except GTA IV, which wasn't the greatest console-to-PC port).
Cons: Requires two PCI-E power connections, but with good reason. Runs pretty hot, even in a well ventilated case.
Other Thoughts: I'm glad I chose this card. Ultra-high graphics never going below 60fps (except once in Modern Warfare 2... ONCE). Worth the money.READ FULL REVIEW
