Pros: This thing is cheaper then a meal at a fast food restaurant and yet it just works. Five minutes after FedEx dropped it off I had it working. Right now simply using an older 80 Gig Intel SSD but will soon upgrade to something larger. No problems at all.
Cons: It's cheap and made of plastic but that doesn't seem to effect performance.
Other Thoughts: Would recommend this to anybody as virtually foolproof. Don't even have to pick up a screwdriver.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Was forced to buy for a Skylake NUC and these modules solved all my problems. Like all Corsair products they just work as advertised.
Cons: Extra speed above 2133 was wasted but I can live with that.
Other Thoughts: Should have purchased 16 gigs but I guess hindsight is a beautiful thing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SteelSeries Rival 100 Optical Gaming Mouse - Black
Pros: Packaged well in molded cardboard cradle. No documentation or driver disk. Does have a laughably meager Quick start guide that tells you only that the mouse is plug and play. It looks like it’s ambidextrous but lefties won’t be able to use their thumbs on the two side buttons.
Mouse itself is light with a matte finish on top and plain dimpled plastic on sides. The two buttons on the left have sharp edges and are uncomfortable to use. The scroll wheel and logo light up orange out of box but the default is to pulse every few seconds.
The cord is plenty long and not too obtrusive. The mouse itself works out of the box with a fast, lively feel to the cursor. It works fine on my desk and doesn’t need a mouse pad. The Teflon feet are large and make the mouse glide effortlessly.
The Steelseries Engine 3 software is well worth the download and is a perfect complement to this low end rodent. First thing I did was change the color of the logo and scroll wheel. You can also map all the buttons and change the sensitivity of the sensor. There is a button on the mouse that changes between 2 sensor sensitivities. To be honest I left things at their default settings but you can adjust the sensitivity up to 4000 or down to 250. You can also change Acceleration/Deceleration, Angle snapping and the polling rate. Seems pretty complete. There is also a tab for Gamesense with presets for Counter Strike, DOTA 2 and Minecraft but I didn’t use any of these so I can’t comment on how well they work.
Cons: Mouse is very light and skittish. I guess I’m used to cordless models with more heft but initially this is awfully offputting. Plus it just feels inexpensive like those no name brand mice you see at Big Lots. The 2 buttons on the left are sharp edged and don’t feel at all comfortable in my hand. When you use the scroll wheel it makes a hollow unpleasant sound like the mouse is empty.
Other Thoughts: Bottom Line: This is an inexpensive gaming mouse and certainly feels the part. It works fine and the software is quite complete but to be honest I have a Logitech wireless mouse that cost just about the same and it’s classy, solid and looks and feels one hundred percent better. It’s not terrible and functionally it’s OK but I can’t recommend it for its low rent vibeREAD FULL REVIEW
