Corsair  Vengeance M90  CH-9000006-NA/RF  Black  15  1 x Wheel  USB  Wired  Laser  5700 dpi  Performance MMO and RTS Gaming Mouse Factory Refurbished
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice metal based mouse that feels good in the hands. The software and everything aren't bad so I didn't have much of a problem with the mouse the first few months that I had it.

Cons: These mice have their fatal issue with the mouse wheel. They will either have the ONE plastic part in the wheel snap and be completely useless or it will start to jump and skip around until it's unbearable. Normally Corsair will just replace it via RMA, but since this is a refurbished product, it's outside of the RMA window in only a few short months. I'm disappointed that the mouse, which was probably RMA'd because of the mouse wheel in the first place, ended up having the same issue after it was fixed. I left two eggs up because the mouse, 1) worked and 2) Is Corsair. I love Corsair, don't get me wrong, but this was a bad choice.

Other Thoughts: I've opened the mouse to try to see if I can fix or at least partially remedy the issue myself. The process to pop it open is pretty harmless, except for one screw that stripped immediately. I cleaned and dusted the inside out and it fixed some of the bad skipping for a while, but it is slowly coming back. I'm going to just end up buying a new mouse because I can't really handle the screwy mouse wheel anymore.

Also if you shake the mouse you can hear a part of the circuit board that isn't secured to anything, which obviously can't be good. Either something broke or it's a design flaw. I'm not sure. Maybe I'll try the M95 or another mouse that doesn't have a known mouse wheel issue.

Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 400 Premium Fully Wireless Gaming Headset for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Mobile Devices (TBS-3240-01)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sound quality is fairly good.
They are comfortable.
Battery life is quite long.

Cons: The plastic arm that connects the ear portion to the head portion was cracking and broke. The other side is doing the same thing. The construction quality of these almost seem like they were meant to break after a while.

The headset will spam you with "Mic muted" and "Charging battery" if your signal gets interfered with in any way (while doing those two specific things of course)

The flashing lights may be annoying to some people, but they really don't bother me.

Other Thoughts: I'm using these because my wife got them for me when my last headset broke (ironically in the same place, different brand of headset though). Because I love her, I'm going to use these until they kick the bucket completely.

But seriously, Turtle Beach products are really poorly made for durability.

Corsair Vengeance K90  Black/Metal USB Wired Gaming Performance, MMO Mechanical Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Updated review. Purchased ~2012 08/05/2015

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K90 Black/Metal USB Wired Gaming Performance, MMO Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: -Fairly quiet for a mechanical keyboard.
-Sturdy! I'll admit, I've got some anger issues while I play, but this keyboard was definitely sturdy. Held up strong to my abuse and some accidental drops.
-Has a very nice feel while typing. It didn't take me long to get used to the transition to mechanical.
-LED life was very long as well. I didn't have a single LED go out on me in the 3ish years that the keyboard was alive.

Cons: -Firstly, RIP keyboard. It lived a long life. The ONLY complaint that I have, which is why it's now 4 eggs instead of 5, is a single slot which has open circuit board under it. I'm not sure if there was an actual purpose to having an opening under the spacebar, but all it took was one or two drops of soy sauce (Darn you soy packet) and it completely shorted out my keyboard. I soaked the interior with some isopropyl alcohol solution to maybe bring her back to life, but I'm 99% sure that the board is fried.

Other Thoughts: The rest of the keys look like they are sealed by their bases, so why is it just the spacebar that has open circuit board?

If it doesn't work, I'll likely be shopping for another Corsair product anyway.
