This review is from: RAZER Abyssus RZ01-00360100-R3U1 Wired Optical High Precision Gaming Mouse - Black
Pros: -Good size and weight for my grip style (fingertip grip)
-The DPI settings are adjustable using the three position switch on the bottom of the mouse. Very convenient.
-Cord is light and not too long. It is fairly flexible.
-The packaging was nice.
Cons: -I took off one star for the cheap feel of the mouse combined with the blue logo, which stays on even after you turn your computer off. The mouse is made of rubber coated plastic which feels a little cheap in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: If the logo would just turn off when I turned my computer off, this would be a 5 star review. I realize that with 99% of technology, you get what you pay for. I wanted an affordable 3 button mouse for gaming, and that is exactly what this is.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tt eSPORTS MEKA G1 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Black KB-MEG005US
Pros: -Mechanical switches (Cherry MX Black).
-The wrist-rest is nice.
-The cable is VERY, VERY, VERY thick and heavy, and definitely reflects good build quality.
Cons: This is my first mechanical keyboard. I have been using a laptop keyboard for many years, so making the transition from membrane keyboards to mechanical ones has presented a few challenges. Namely:
-Getting used to the travel distance of each keypress. The keys don't depress too deeply for my taste, but I am not used to the longer travel length yet.
Other Thoughts: -The keys will actuate HALFWAY through their total travel length. That means you don't need to fully depress the key in order to actuate it. This may or may not be a pro or con for you.
-I do tend to type very firmly, so the mechanical keyboard really feels good, and the satisfying soft *click* the keys make when they are pushed all the way in is so satisfying. Mind you, the switches are not clicky, I just type with a lot of force.
Overall, I would highly recommend this keyboard to anyone interested in trying a mechanical keyboard. No fancy machros, screens, or software. Just a good keyboard.
Pros: -450W heat sink on a ~260W card.
-47fps on Unigine Heaven benchmark (Ultra, 1920x1080).
-Have yet to see temps above 70C (Saw it hit that mark in BF3 on ultra with VSync disabled, still never saw the fps drop below 70+)
-Runs cool, never seen any temps higher than 70C at full load. Unigine Heaven 3.0 didn't make its temp get any higher than 65C.
Cons: -Very Large card, could use some more support or a cover on the back of the PCB.
-Heat Dissipation. Look at how the fins on the heat sink are oriented! This card blows the hot air sideways, instead of longways. If your case doesn't have a side window or mesh, it may not be able to properly exhaust the heat from this card! Luckily, I knew before buying and was prepared. Overall, not worth taking an egg off for because I have been able to effectively handle all of the thermals in my case due to the side mesh. See the video from Linus TechTips for a better look at the heat sink.
Other Thoughts: I selected this card for my first ever build. No regrets as of yet. It absolutely SMOKES pretty much any game at 1080p, no problem (but if you were looking at this card, you probably already knew that). Some call it "Overkill", but I call it "Future-Proof". My card idles at ~30C-32C, and the highest I have seen it go at full load was 70C. Nice and cool. If your case has a side mesh, or you have some other way to easily get the heat from the card out of your case, this card is great.
