This review is from: Logitech G400 Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 3600 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Coming from an old Logitech Click Pro mouse, I found that the overall shape was very comfortable, and fit my entire hand. The software drivers are very comprehensive as well, allowing you to create profiles, custom macros, and customize your button functions. The sensor is also prediction/acceleration free.
Cons: I find that the buttons are a little too short for me. They don't extend to the end of the mouse like my fingers do, so I find myself having to readjust to a more uncomfortable fingertip grip when I am in-game. I've observed that the sensor, which is an Avago ADNS-3095, likes to jitter at 1000 CPI+. Since I play at 1800 CPI, this was very inconvenient for me.
Other Thoughts: After about a month of usage, the left-click started to stick, and then eventually stopped working. Since the mouse was 30 dollars, it's not a big deal, but I won't be buying this product again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft JWD-00046 Black USB Wired Standard Keyboard 200
Pros: I bought this keyboard for a spare rig my friends use when they come over, and I'm thoroughly impressed by it. The first thing that struck me about this keyboard was how light the switches were. They are much smoother and easier to press than most rubber domes I've used, and feel absolutely fantastic. I never would have expected such stellar keyfeel from an eight dollar keyboard. I also like the design of the keyboard. It doesn't take up too much space, and leaves just enough room for everything. The LED indicator lights aren't too bright and aren't intrusive at all. I'm also quite fond of the USB cable. It's surprisingly rigid, considering the price of the keyboard it's being used on. So far it has been run over by my chair and is still going strong.
Cons: I can't say that I'm very fond of the keycaps. They're made of a lower-quality plastic that looked shiny out of the box. Keyboards I've used before in the same price range have had better keycaps than this, so I'm a bit disappointed.
Other Thoughts: Even though I'm not very fond of the keycaps, I refuse to take an egg off for it. This keyboard is so stellar for the price that it's nearly impossible for me not to recommend it to all my friends who need a new keyboard and are on a budget. I'd even go as far as to say that this keyboard is on-par with some 40 and 50 dollar keyboards I've used in the past. I even like it more than my Razer Arctosa! I can safely say that when my current keyboard breaks, I'll be replacing it with this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER Lycosa Black USB Wired Gaming Keyboard
Pros: Very nice looking Keyboard - has a USB 2.0 port and audio jacks for peripherals such as headsets. Backlighting is useful in very dark rooms. Works for what it is.
Cons: Cheap rubber domes instead of tactile switches, chiclet-esque keys will stick and aren't as comfortable as taller ones, and it is incredibly overpriced. Currently the Lycosa is 56 dollars, though normally it sells for 80. I would say 39.99 is about all this keyboard is worth.
Other Thoughts: If you're going to be gaming, don't bother here. Get a mechanical keyboard with Blue or Brown switches. The Lycosa is just a cheaply made keyboard with buzzwords such as "gamer" tied to it to sell it.READ FULL REVIEW
