This review is from: Microsoft SideWinder X6 Black Keyboard Win USB English
Pros: Extensive macro programming possibility. In some ways the macros work better on this software than with the G15 software that I used previously.
The keys feel fantastic. I could type on this keyboard all day.
The integrated wrist rest is great. It gives it a nice solid feel. The rest is also long enough to fit your hands even if they are fairly large.
The Volume and lightning knobs are perfect. I don't know why all keyboards don't have them.
THe back lighting is constant for the entire keyboard. The back lighting works through both the keys and on a plastic panel behind the keys for even illumination. You can't see any nasty uneven lighting on the keyboard at all.
The removable Num/Macro pad is icing on the cake. The ability to take a piece of the keyboard that I never used in games before and assign it a function was a great bonus.
Cons: The macro functionality is a bit touchy for WoW. I have parts where the programmed macro is "(Enter)/roll 100(/Enter)" but what actually comes out is "(Enter)oll 100(/Enter)". This is the ONLY short coming of the keyboard, through hardware or software.
Keep in mind this is just me being nit-picky. The problem is that it won't take the command and enter it instantly. It wants a timing on the command, which therefore causes problems.
Other Thoughts: This is the best keyboard that I have EVER used, and if Microsoft could just improve the software a bit, it would be the gaming keyboard of choice.
Its really too bad that Microsoft doesn't make their Opperating Systems as well as they made this keyboard.
This review is from: Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition
Pros: This is a great game. It handles very well on the PC. I love the combat system. Essentially it is the combat system from Prince of Persia stripped down and then perfected. You have complete control of your character through combat. It takes a bit of time to get used to the combat system, but once you do it will be the new standard of melee combat perfection.
Cons: It can be a bit awkward at certain points with the viewpoint control. You can get stuck on walls because of this. The gameplay can be a bit repetitive.
Other Thoughts: The pros were so amazing that I couldn't even register any of the cons on my rating.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech G5 7 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Laser 2000 dpi Mouse
Pros: This mouse is absolutely perfect. It comes with all the buttons you could possibly use and more. When you install the software you effectively have 9 buttons because of the left and right scroll wheel.
Cons: The software that comes with the G5 is difficult to learn to manipulate and can be VERY touchy at times. When you use the software you set gaming profiles and default profiles, and I can't get it to work the way that I really want it to. In order to get the profile I want I have to jump through a few hoops.
Other Thoughts: I have actually used the G5 on two different installs of Vista, and it has acted differently both times. The first time it worked properly, this time it has be a bit touchy, so it could just be a problem with the install this time. Overall I highly suggest it. This mouse is the HIGHEST quality mouse that you can get for gaming or anything else. I have tried the G9 and G7 and this mouse simply beats them. The only thing that I would want them to improve is the top range of the sensitivity. I would really like to go to at least 2500 dpi.READ FULL REVIEW
