Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs A beautiful upgrade to my MX518 03/31/2014

This review is from: Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse

Pros: This mouse is perfect for me.

*The arched grip fits my palm perfectly and the side curbs for my off button fingers makes it insanely comfortable to hold. The tracking is incredibly smooth with no noticeable prediction or acceleration.

It's also a few grams lighter then my MX518 and makes it feel that much smoother on my Razer Goliathus.

Cons: The only single problem I have with this mouse is it's only got the 2 thumb buttons, 2 forefinger buttons, and mouse wheel with scroll up, down, and click. There are no additional buttons to changing the DPI on the fly so you'll have to reprogram one of them to do it instead. Fortunately Synapse 2.0 does let you set profiles for each program you run so you technically shouldn't have to adjust it anyways when going from games to desktop after you've initially configured everything.

Other Thoughts: I always thought Razer mice were overpriced compared to there performance. I was wrong.

Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Five (5) Preinstalled Fans, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This case has provided one of the more enjoyable builds for me in recent history.

* Tooless
* Plenty of room*
* Quiet
* Comes with 5(!) fans
* Easy mobo and back plate install
* Back side for running wires
* PSU gets it's own air loop thanks to underside fan mounts
* simple sleek design that I quite like

Cons: Only a couple things bothered me.

One is the rubber grommets that the wires pass through to get to the back plate are not secured that well. I recommend touching the edges with some adhesive or glue before running wires or they mighty pop out (and they are a pain to get back on).

The tooless hard drive bays are a little flimsy. They do the job but if you get some bent ones that you don't fill, they will look odd just sitting there.

Finally, while technically the case is tooless, some of the thumb screws were inhumanly tight. nothing major though really.

Other Thoughts: If you need a case around the $100 mark, look no further than the Rosewill Blackhawk. It's functional and looks great with only a few minor hitches that shouldn't even affect most builds.

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Nada

Cons: When it did work, it wasn't notably better then the RealTek on board audio my motherboard already had. After a week though, in the middle of a gaming session I heard an audible "pop" and then it just stopped working.
