LOGITECH G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse

4 out of 5 eggs Linux usage review. 02/01/2015

This review is from: LOGITECH G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse

Pros: quite responsive seemingly high quality device. Having it for a few months it feals like the other logitech's I have and I expect it will last quite a while. It is replacing a 10 year old g5. there is also a thumb rest built in which is a nice feature to keep you from rubbing your hand on the pad. the mouse has a built in memory for remembering configs.

All in all the mouse works quite well if you can handle the quarks of it.

Cons: No linux support for the control software. windows 7+ vm needed to initially set up the mouse. due to button arrangement it is a little awakard some times for me to press buttons.

At some point I will probably have to make a palmrest that i can stick to the back to adjust how my wrist/hand fit the device so that i am not having to use a caw grip. My g5 i could use the first nuckel to press buttons but that is partially due to it not having many buttons.

Other Thoughts: Size, My hand is 8" from the tip of my middle finger to the end of my palm. as such I have to use a claw grip to keep my fingers in range to press the side buttons. In general this a moot point as the default is sensitivity up and down. so you would not normally use them much. I reassigned the front one for another key and left the back one to adjust sensitivity so it scrolls through the 4 setpoints. the thumb switch is left with sniper mode so that it brings the sensitivity to 400 as needed. It is QUITE handy even on block builders. presicion long range placements are posible by using sniper mode and its obvious use in fps for sniping and recoil adjustment.

I had to use a Windows 7 VM and assign the mouse to the VM while i had another mouse plugged in to get it to be configured. after it was assigned to the vm properly the software was able to configure the mouse and save it to the onboard memory of the mouse. the software is nice in its ability to program setpoitns buttons and even how the G glows. This mouse is realisticly 6 buttons plus a mouse wheel which does have side tilt. I dont consider utility buttons as real buttons. 1 button is in limbo as it is set to utility by default and is hard for a large hand to reach.

Mouse wheel has a free wheel mode which I suprisingly love. the 0 resistance mode is almost awesome. It is true when it is completely free wheel like it is it can be annoying when things switch on you while playing a game. invintory for example often are tied to the wheel. it may randomly select another item while free wheel but if you realise that may happen its not to big of a deal. it would have been nice to put a slight resistance in there to keep it from turning with no effort. a good flick can keep it spinning for about 2 min. putting a bit of resistance in there even if that brought it down to 30 sec would still be a handy addition. I truely love free wheel though. I can often scroll through long pdf/web pages with it. books24/7 comes to mind first. they have some pades in their books that are 10 page down presses. scrool wheel makes quick work of finding the exact spot quickly. its quite sensitive but not touchy. I hate not having it at work.

4 out of 5 eggs interesting board for decent price 10/30/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-H8SGL-F-O ATX Server Motherboard Socket G34 AMD SR5650 DDR3 1333

Pros: dual gig nic's ipmi/bmc lrdimm capibility. decent mix of slots.

Cons: firmware/bios bug can cripple gb speeds untill you update bios and set to optimal defaults. no usb3/eSata for recovery purposes. Ipmi console does not have a static/definable size. It has issues with linux console blanking and will start flipping between tiny and huge untill you catch it and hit a key before it shifts size again.

Other Thoughts: all in all a solid board. appiairently that generation of Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit Network cards had a bad firmware used during manufacturing of products or something. under normal 100mb load even maxed out no issues seen. once you keep a 1g transfer going for 1.2gb or longer it would fail. this and other strange issues were seen on several different brands of boards.

Pros: DD-WRT advertised by manufacturer.

Cons: 100m internal ports. Since they put 4 on it would have been nice to have them gb ports. Antennas are not removable to allow for being run up a wall away from the unit.

Other Thoughts: I was having hit or miss on N connections with the dell that it was intended to be used for. I did immediatly flash to dd-wrt so I dont know if stock flash was like that. The dell did notice my other wireless system was N but never connected to that @ N either.
