Pros: Well it was great, for 4 years, absolutely worth the buy, just keep in mind what happened to me so you don't wind up wasting your hard-earned cash when the time comes.
Cons: after 4 years the northbridge faulted, killed a cpu- and now... now i'm in the hole for another cpu that newegg won't take a return on and I can't use. Board keeps throwing CPU fault via Q-lite, but- it's the board that's bad. Everything else was tested and checked ok.
Other Thoughts: I guess 4 years is a long time for hardware these days. It worked well while it lasted, I just wish it'd faulted in a manner that didn't cost me another couple hundred bucks.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XTRAC PADS Ripper XXL Mouse Pad
-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!READ FULL REVIEW
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
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.
