Pros: Installed flawlessly, idles at decent temps, auto fan control actually works (unlike my 8800 GT which I upgraded from) and this card is basically silent. Running Bad Company 2 on the highest possible settings in DX11 mode with everything enabled and getting the same performance I was getting out of my 8800 GT running on low-medium settings with most of the goodies turned off in DX9.
Cons: Couldn't wait for a cheaper card to ship from Newegg, and this one was out of stock, so I had to purchase locally.
Doesn't clean my computer desk for me while I'm at work.
This review is from: PPA 2384 USB 2.0 SD Card Reader
Pros: It works, mostly. Compact and easy to carry, I suppose.
Cons: Doesn't support SDHC. Is pretty poorly constructed, inserting and removing an SD card will cause the actual circuit board inside to move around within the product casing. Feels like you could break it very easily with little force.
Other Thoughts: Buy another brand of reader or buy one of those travel/mobility kits that include a reader with your card. This thing is cheap but the savings aren't worth the hassle.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft 9VV-00001 Black 7 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser Habu Gaming Mouse
Pros: Beautiful mouse, feels great in my hands. Love the DPI switcher, replaceable side panel, glow pipe, everything. Really, REALLY wish it didn't have the cons below, though. I'm going to the store today to replace my second Habu with another brand of mouse.
Cons: The left mouse button randomly double clicks after a week of use. And this happened with two different mice. I thought it might be my computer somehow but I tested both mice on multiple computers and the problem was there on both. It's entirely possible my electronics store got a bad shipment, but I doubt it. Two out of two mice were bad which is just plain bad.
Makes browsing my iTunes library or playing games like the Witcher basically impossible as double clicking ruins my attack combos. I'm very sad that I won't be keeping this mouse.
Other Thoughts: "On the fly" sensitivity is garbage. The DPI up/down buttons work fine but no matter what I set On the Fly sensitivity to in the Habu config, I could never get it to show up, even with "Show On the Fly Sensitivity On Screen" checked. I am really going to miss this mouse, I will probably be getting a G5 instead.READ FULL REVIEW
