This review is from: APC Black 5000mAh Mobile Power Pack M5BK
Pros: Would be great for getting some extra battery life out of your devices on flights, while camping, etc. Works as advertised. The LEDs which indicate current charge levels are bright and easy to see.
Cons: Scratches and scuffs extremely easily. In fact the unit shortly had several scratches on it from just removing the protective film it shipped in. One side had no protective film at all and came with slight surface scratches.
The construction does not seem particularly sturdy, putting light pressure on either of the sides causes a loud clicking noise that is slightly concerning.
Other Thoughts: The length of the included charging cord is a little on the short side, but definitely workable. Lightweight for its size, but I own comparable battery packs of the same size that can store more charge.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair SABRE USB Wired RGB Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: On Windows the software, while clunky, seems to work. Setup is fairly easy and true to the advertisement the lighting is very customizable. The mouse cable is nice and light, but it's still a little too stiff - I've had issues with other mice having cables that are too thick and were getting caught on my desk.
It looks pretty neat, that seems to be the main pro with the colors being so customizable. But I'd trade all the colors for some better ergonomics, which brings me to cons...
Cons: There are no Mac drivers. My Razer Naga works on both Windows and Mac, but if you try this Corsair Sabre on a Mac it will work as a basic mouse but you won't be able to program the buttons or change the colors. At least the DPI adjustment buttons also work on the Mac.
Coming from the Naga I'm not the biggest fan of the rubbery mouse wheel on the Corsair Sabre, it is hard to be precise with and it feels sluggish and slow. I also wish the mouse wheel clicked left and right instead of just down.
I have somewhat large hands and the Corsair Sabre still feels bulky. The ergonomics are honestly pretty bad, it doesn't seem to fit my hand comfortably no matter how I hold it. I can't get my whole hand on the mouse and have it still be usable, the only way is to only touch the mouse with just my fingertips which makes it harder to control and use. I think if it was a bit longer and maybe a little bit wider it would be more comfortable.
This cable is so stiff and the mouse is so light that if the cable has any tension on it from your desk, the wall, your monitor, etc and you let go of the mouse the tension on the cable alone will move and rotate the mouse.
Other Thoughts: This is advertised as a gaming mouse but there's really only 2 or 3 usable buttons for gaming if you keep the 2 DPI-adjustment buttons. If you're just looking for a nice mouse for shooters and similar games then this mouse will serve you well if the ergonomics agree with you. For MMOs or RPGs I'd probably look at a mouse with more thumb buttons.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quality RAM that is designed for overclocking, you can't go wrong with this RAM in a high-end build. This RAM also has an impressively low form-factor, great if space constraints are an option or to boost airflow to other components depending on the layout of your motherboard.
Easily overclockable using XMP which is a nice bonus.
And perhaps the best thing is that this RAM is made by Corsair, a great company who makes quality products with very good warranty services. If you ever have any problems then Corsair will definitely take care of you.
Cons: This is on the lower end of the speed spectrum for DDR4 RAM. It's certainly not slow but just something to be aware of. RAM clock speed usually isn't the limiting factor in performance for most applications.
Other Thoughts: This same exact RAM comes in several colors, this is the red version - Make sure to pick the color that's the best deal or the one that meshes best with the rest of your system! Currently this product is a bit cheaper than the other version in Black for the exact same RAM.READ FULL REVIEW
