This review is from: E-Blue Cobra 1600 Adjustable DPI Wired USB Optical Gaming Mouse (White)
Pros: Smooth and accurate tracking.
Dirt Cheap (was on a daily deal)
DPI Button (although I don't use it)
Bright and uniform blue led lighting.
Cons: Cheap construction
Lights cannot be turned off / may be too bright for some.
Side buttons are easy to accidently hit.
Side buttons are too small and close together.
Driver limitations (more below)
Other Thoughts: For the price that was paid for this device there isn't much that can be complained about. The tracking is smooth and accurate. The mouse feet are larger than standard feet and glide across my tempered glass mouse pad with ease. It did not come with a driver but there is a driver available at the e-blue.jp website if you scroll to the very bottom of the page. The driver is very limited and only offers a small handful of shortcuts you can change the buttons to.
The build quality of the mouse feels solid but somewhat cheap. Its hard to say just yet how long it will physically last. The wheel feels smooth and is very quiet. The middle mouse button is slightly harder to press than most i have used. The side buttons are too small and close together. Depending on how you hold your mouse, the side buttons may also be easy to accidently hit. As expected, the polling rate is a default 125hz and there is no options within the Cobra driver application to change.
Pros: Great Price (shell-shocker deal)
Very low noise even at full rpm, practically silent at low rpm
Cons: No cons that I can think of.
Other Thoughts: The original Cooler Master fan from my Hyper 212 heatsink was starting to make some tell-tale noises of imminent failure. And of course Newegg, being as awesome as they are, just happened to have this fan up for shell-shocker on that very same day.
This new cougar fan outperforms my previous Cooler Master fan hands down while making a fraction of the noise. I have it hooked to a fan controller and have not noticed any audible squealing issues as others have stated.
The color scheme is obviously a personal preference. I see it as a welcomed deviation from the average multi-colored led fans or drab simple black fans. It fits quite well into the ratio of looks and performance.
