This review is from: SteelSeries Rival 100 Optical Gaming Mouse - Sakura Purple
Pros: Really like the weight of it and the ease of use. I was thinking claw grip on this would be a no-no, but it worked well for Overwatch, World of Tanks and BF4. I would like for it to be full plug and play so no software needs to be installed (and it doesn't, really), but you'll need it for some of the color and DPI settings.
Wife loved it on her Mac without making any adjustments so she'll probably keep this one that's for review and I'll end up purchasing another one. Steelseries is doing the same thing of bringing quality products to those with a lower budget, and I'm liking it.
Not exactly sure of which optical sensor is in it, but didn't even have to do the research for that due to not having problems.
There is no lag, nor jumping around on the screen, simply perfect for the screens that it was used on, from 1600x900 all the way up to 3840x2160.
As another user said, the 2000CPI might not be high enough for tons of users that need really accurate tracking (e.g. CS), but it is more than fine for BF4 and Overwatch running on a UHD monitor.
Palm grip is quite comfortable for office work, just feels right in any situation.
Cons: Might be a tad small for those of us with bigger hands, so be careful if you're one of those.
Other Thoughts: Although it's close to the company with the sails' offering, I think this one is slightly better since it comes in different flavors of LEDsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Not a pro, but this is literally the same size as other drives for storage. Don't believe you can go wrong with it and the price is more than welcome when contrasting comparable products of other brands. The performance itself doesn't feel different than other 7200RPM drives but the cache is always welcome if you're into transferring large files and expect reliability. Once this drive starts going, unlike others, you'll have your files where they're supposed to go in a quick and efficient manner. I dod not suffer any errors nor disconnects as I've read throughout some reviews for other products. All in all, I cannot really distinguish this from another 4TB 7200 rpm drive, but that is because there's a certain threshold when it gets to the point that one of these SSHDs is necessary. I'm glad to recommend but beware of the small noise it emits if you're used to a near-silent environment. I did not use it for video production or editing, but that's what I'd say this is great for; that and storing all those family movies and pictures after they've been backed up to another location.
Cons: Can hear the disk emit a small whine when transferring large files, but this was just done for testing purposes, would most likely not experience this in everyday use.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless RGB Gaming Headset - White
Pros: Looks really modern and logo lighting up couldn't look better. I entirely love the RGB aspect of it and how it interacts with other Corsair products that are compatible with the utility engine. Compatibility with a newer X99 rig on Windows 10 was not much of a problem and as little trouble as you would expect from first initialization of a wireless product. I quite enjoy the rolling volume knob and the info mic lights that tell me how much charge is left on the headset and if the mic is muted in case I don't want to be heard on teamspeak or other voice chat applications.
Comfortableness is unbelievable for a product of this price point and I'd say it's quite worth it to spend the money for the MSRP, but a slight discount at times wouldn't hurt.
All in all, besides a small software hiccup, I'd highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a easy to use headset with full features and very respectable price range. I might revise my review once software is updated to be a bit more featured, but for now it's a hard 4 out of 5.
Cons: Had a slightly difficult time setting it up (wasn't much of a challenge, but still worth to note). Was not able to get it working on the first installation of the software, but after using a registry cleaner, running the %APPDATA% folder and deleting the Corsair folder, the headset installed like a charm, and the pairing was simple. The software is quite complex for a beginner and not too intuitive for a novice, I bet many people have to call in to the support to get issues resolved most of the time.
Other Thoughts: Software needs a redesign.READ FULL REVIEW
