Pros: Sleek Design, TONs of programmable buttons (may not register with most games) Rechargable, Decent battery life.
In all ,this is a GREAT mouse. I've actually resorted to carting it to work and using it there as well.
Cons: The pleasing aesthetics are purely visual. 15 minutes into a gaming session I can already feel my hand cramping up. Why? Because I have to grip this thing with my ring finger and pinky.
I have medium sized hands, after a year of use I think this mouse may work better for someone with much larger hands to palm the mouse.
Three months into purchase the right mouse button became sketchy. Often times right clicks didn't register. In game the aim would often zoom in then out and back in and out again while held down.
The pointer finger DPI and Battery Indicator buttons are great in theory, but you WILL accidentally change your dpi in the middle of a game.
Other Thoughts: I Really miss my Logitech G9. GREAT mouse, but the wire housing going into the mouse was pretty horrible. That's actually what ended up killing it, wear and tear to the wire around the housing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great performance at a great price
Cons: Very loud at load, runs at 90c for most of the time a game is running.
EVGA's official response to my concern was;
90c is high, definitely. But it is still within the operating ranges. If you have any further questions please let us know.

Other Thoughts: Performance and price are a 5.
Heat, Noise and Cust Service quality brought this down to a 3.
Pros: The Best audio quality in a pair of IEMs you can buy. The triple driver system delivers crisp quality highs and reverberating lows but the mids are where it really SHINES.
The preferred triple flange tip is horribly proficient at it's job. So much so, that I don't wear both sides if I'm biking or walking on the streets. Even on low volume, you won't hear ANYTHING else!
It's so good, it's dangerous.
Cons: Not fully modular.
The cord system comes in separate sections and, at first, feels solid. But as time goes on it reveals itself to be brittle and prone to splits and a tendency for loose connections resulting in bad static.
The wiring around the ear is also bad, it came loose after about 1.5 years of use. Not surprising considering it's brittle plastic that you're constantly wrapping around your ear.
After another year of that the wire apparently became damaged enough that the IEM's stopped working in one and then the other bud.
Other Thoughts: Let the drivers warm up from use for about 30 hours before assessing. Out of the box they start out a bit TOO crisp and tinny but warm up right around 30-35 hours.
for 300, I expected a bit more build quality. From what I understand, the new SE535's are the exact same thing, but modular around the ears with additional shielding. Basically, EXACTLY what these needed.
My se530's are dead now. But I still constantly have flights of fancy about just paying that 160 to have them repaired by Shure.
