This review is from: Razer RZ02-00420100-R3U1 Scarab Expert Hard Gaming Mouse Mat
Pros: -Smooth surface
-Great grip on the bottom
-Huge surface area
Other Thoughts: Well, when I bought this it was the only hard mousepad I could find. I was using a very nice soft mousepad, and after a few months my hand started breaking out in a terrible rash just on the areas that were in contact with the mousepad for hours a day.
So when I bought this, I was looking for something that I wouldn't be allergic to! I didn't want to get something that was going to be foam rubber.
What a strange requirement for a mousepad! Well, at the time this was the only one that met that requirement. The surface is a hard plastic, my mouse glides effortlessly across it and tracks very well. And best of all, I'm not allergic to it!
I do a lot of computer repair work, and I can actually comfotably fit two mice on this pad. My main one for my computer, and one for another person's computer. Or, I can clear it off and have a huge space to move my mouse over when gaming.
Well, looking at Razer's website today, they sell more hard pads than they do soft ones, so having a hard pad must offer some other advantages I wasn't even thinking about when I bought it.
One thing is certain, I'm not going back to a traditional mousepad. At work I have just a 1sq foot piece of leather, and that makes a great mousepad too. But not as good as this!
I would recommend one of Razer's hard pads over a soft one any day.
Does everything a basic computer needs
Good build quality
Cons: One screw hole didn't line up
Owner's manual is on the CD - hard to read if this is your only computer
Other Thoughts: I got this motherboard along with an A4-5300, some cheap RAM and the bottom end Corsair power supply to rebuild someone's old Compaq that quit.
This board is really basic, offering only the bare essentials to get up and running. Which, for the purpose that this was being used for, is perfectly fine. This was going to people who were using an old Compaq with an Athalon II and the onboard graphics, which the A4 surpasses easily.
I used the old Compaq case, and the single header for the front lights/buttons went right onto this board without modification. One of the screw holes didn't line up, but the rest did, not sure why that was. The standoff in the case was just off the edge of the board and the screw hole was about an inch away.
Other than that, everything snapped together really easilly, it was up and running in half an hour or so.
This review is from: Pyramid - 12'' 500 Watt High Power Paper Cone 8 Ohm Subwoofer
Pros: Sound OK, for what they are: cheap speakers
Using in some stage monitor cabinets, they get the job done.
Cons: None really. They do what they're advertized to do, nothing more, nothing less.
Other Thoughts: Bought these somewhere else, but not as car subs!
They were being sold as pro-audio speakers. Well, same price, same product, and indeed I am using them as pro-audio speakers.
They replaced the blown drivers in some cheap monitor wedges, and they work fine. They do the job. They're not fantastic, but they do sound better than the original drivers.
They can't do 500 watts RMS. They can do 250 RMS and 500 peak. Keep that in mind!
The cabinates I have them in are rated at 150 continuous and 250 peak, and I usually drive them with a 250 watt amp, so I'm not worried.
As for a sub... they only go down to like, 50Hz... I know people were using them as bass amp speakers and guitar amp speakers.. I just can't imagine they'd work well for that. I'd like to see something with a lower frequency response for a sub.
