XTRAC PADS Ripper XXL Mouse Pad
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Stop reading and buy it 01/09/2015

This review is from: XTRAC PADS Ripper XXL Mouse Pad

Pros: -Huge
-Great surface
-stays put even on my glass desk
-Coffee will wash out without any negative side-effects!
-edges might fray a bit after long heavy use, but it won't fall apart on you for many years of extremely heavy use

Cons: it has refused requests to have my children and will not automatically clean spilt coffee off of itself

Other Thoughts: So, this is my second Xtrac Ripper XXL mouse-pad, usually on a site like Newegg that means the first was somehow defective. Not the case! I ordered an Xtrac Ripper XXL 4 years ago and loved it, it was great, it outlived 3-4 keyboards and 6 mice. Hell I've still got the first one! But, I've decided that the years have not been kind to it with extremely heavy use- being a smoker, coffee-spiller, etc- so with the fabric finally starting to separate from the padding 4 years later(corners only!), it was time to get a new one. Old one still works fine, still love it- and that's why i had to make sure to buy the same thing again. =) Get this mouse-pad, you won't be disappointed!

Rosewill RHRC-11002 Windows 7 Certified MCE IR Remote Controller/Windows 8 MCE + Small USB Dongle Type, with Netflix CD
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: IR LEDs are bright (It's IR, you won't see it with the naked eye) and the receiver works great while it lasts.

Button Layout is good

RC6 Compliant

Cons: After a few months it just randomly stopped working and no amount of changing batteries or checking drivers did anything to help. Checked it on another machine to be sure it wasn't some sort of software bug and of course- it wasn't.

Other Thoughts: Until it died on me, i was quite happy with it. But, for a remote to stop working (actually i think the problem is the reviver) in under a year- is just unacceptable. Because I was actually impressed with how well it performed otherwise, i can't bring myself to give it only one egg.

Maybe I was just unlucky, if you just need something cheap to get you by for a few months this will do nicely, but... don't be surprised if it fails on you.

CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Red Edition)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Back-lit Keyboard and mouse'
-Solid Construction
-Back-lighting is neither too dim nor too bright
-Looks great on my desk
-Non-Smudge surface feels great
-Mouse size is perfect
-Grip pads on mouse have neither to much or too little give
-Mouse is light without being too light
-Side buttons on mouse are perfectly positioned so as not to be too far forward or backward
-Have yet to run into any ghosting issues with the keyboard
-Keyboard's tactical response is okay, not great- but not mushy.

Cons: There are two cons I've got thus far, the first is the scroll wheel on the mouse is erratic. It will periodically scroll up when scrolling down, and scroll down when scrolling up. Reducing the line-count of scrolling in the OS does not alleviate the issue but does make it less noticeable. I'm not sure if this is just a defective mouse or if there are some debouncing issues with it, or what. Other than that it works beautifully- but- the scrolling issue does get very annoying very quickly. It's using generic drivers and there are none to be had to update from CM's website. Thus I expect I just have to live with it- or get another mouse.

Be prepared to purchase another mouse- which is a shame, because it's otherwise a good combo at a good price.

The other con is the keys on the keyboard. While they are shaped, their shape is not conducive to typing without the keyboard's 'feet' flipped down to prop it up at an angle. With the feet down it's fine, but, it would be nice if this slope were built-in without the need for feet.

Other Thoughts: Some have complained that the keyboard's lettering is difficult to see with the back light turned off, And while I'm inclined to agree; I personally view it as a feature rather than a flaw. I'm a touch typist and can do just fine without having to look at what I'm pressing, and it's nice to have a clean looking keyboard without distracting high-contrast markings, and to have the ability to switch them on if desired.

The price for the keyboard alone is good, it's just a shame that the mouse has such terrible issues with scrolling, and the reason it's getting 3 stars instead of 4 or 5.
