SAMSUNG Black 1.44MB 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs I guess no bottom plate = no worky 03/03/2009

This review is from: SAMSUNG Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal Floppy Drive Model SFD321B/LFBL1

Pros: It was cheap I guess so it wasn't worth RMA'ing

Cons: I never bought a floppy disk drive before so I thought that the open bottom was OK. Turns out it isn't OK, in fact a floppy drive which is sold without a bottom plate is already a broken item. The guy/woman in China who installs the bottom plates on these probably fell asleep during a run of these as other people have the same issue.

Other Thoughts: I support Newegg.

Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical Mouse
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs More accurate than the DeathAdder 01/04/2009

This review is from: Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical Mouse

Pros: I was fragging people like nuts.
It's really nice and smooth, but you have to run a software program called HIDUSBF first to get it (the USB port) to 1000hz in order to be as fast and as smooth as a gaming mouse. Otherwise, games would play like a slide-show if you turn left or right / up or down.
The mouse feet are also perfect as-is, they don't need skates like some mouses do.
The sensor is perfect and pure.
The best competitive tournament players in the world (like the top players in South Korea, Sweden, everywhere that computer games are televised) use either this Intellimouse 1.1 or the MX300 that Logitech doesn't make anymore.
Hmm... what else... it has a perfectly flat underside unlike the Razer DeathAdder which has a bulge in the center of it, scraping against mats.

Cons: Razer DeathAdder has the perfect mouse wheel while this one is standard.

You scroll up and down, and if you scroll too hard you can get Mouse Button #3 by accident. So the Intellimouse, being an earlier-style mouse, has an inferior scroll wheel to the Razer. Actually, the scrolling is fine, it is just the scroll button which pushes too easily during scrolling. How does this affect me? I like to shoot with the scrollwheel! I don't want Mouse3 to be pushed on accident while I am scrolling and shooting! So that bothered me.

Its primary and side buttons also can't match the Razer's buttons. The Razer's were designed help you click quicker. But even so, the Intellimouse buttons are solid, even the side ones. They just take a tiny amount of extra time to push. If Microsoft ever updates this mouse, which they should, the first and perhaps only thing they should change are the buttons to be more like Razer's. BUT LEAVE THE SENSOR ALONE IT'S GREAT

Other Thoughts: As you can tell from the review, I went from a Razer DeathAdder to this N50-00002. I did it for two reasons: the DeathAdder was falling to ****, the paint was coming off... and because top players use it. Since I kind of play games to win, I had to try it to see if it was an improvement over what Razer offers. What I found was a mouse that is as decent and as conventional as they come. The Razers try to compensate and assist in ways I don't like, such as automatically making a lumpy line I draw straight in MSPaint for example. This assistance also occurs in games, and I always felt something like my inputs were not matching what I was seeing. The Intellimouse 1.1 is pure and doesn't play games with you. Rather than try to tell you what it believes is right (ie Razer mouses), it just lets YOU tell IT what to do even if you make the mistakes yourself. Since this mouse serves its owner unwaveringly, it deserves 5 stars.

QPAD CT Series QPAD_CT_4MB Black Gaming Mouse Pad
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Oops, these do come with the Glidz feet 04/18/2008

This review is from: QPAD CT Series QPAD_CT_4MB Black Gaming Mouse Pad

Pros: This mousepad is great. In a previous review I stated that they don't come with QPAD's Glidz mouse feet. They do! They accidentally fell out of the package and went under my desk! I slapped them on my DeathAdder mouse and it was really smooth.

Cons: The colors on the mousepad look kind of washed out but that may be due to the kind of material the company used for it. But no matter, I would be just as happy with the product if it had some ghastly pink and yellow with zebra stripes colors. The properties of this mousepad is what makes it so good. It's really smooth and helps with fraggins.

Other Thoughts: Sorry I lost the mouse feet and said that they don't come with the mousepad, they actually DO and I hope I didn't affect sales of this expensive mouse pad. The cost is worth it.
