GIGABYTE M6800 GM-M6800 Noble Black 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1600 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: >Ergonomic right hand design
>Nice textures on the sides
>Very precise
>Dual mode DPI settings
>Forward & back buttons on thumb
>Fairly long USB cable
>Gigabyte customer service and warranty
>It works well on many different surfaces even bed sheets and couch cushions
>Great for games that require a precise mouse like Battlefield

Cons: <It died on me after about a month of normal use. (see below)
<Not a serious issue but it would have been much better with a sheathed USB cable like almost every $15 or above "gaming" mouse now comes with instead of the regular plastic tubing.

Other Thoughts: It died on me after about a month of normal use. It was never dropped or abused. The red light on the bottom was on so I knew it was getting power but the mouse was not responding. The PC did not recognize it when it was plugged in either; no drivers or anything were installed in Windows. I tried it on all the other USB ports on my PC and also on all the USB ports on 3 different PCs and it acted the same way. I came to the conclusion that something was wrong with the mouse itself, the circuitry or the USB plug. I went to Gigabyte's website and started an RMA on it. They approved it and ended up sending me a brand new mouse which arrived about a month an a half after starting the RMA. It works and is nice that it was brand new but I ended up paying over 50% of the original price of the mouse just to ship it to them (the mouse was $10 and shipping was $5.50 in a priority mail USPS box). It was either eat the $10 and toss it or put another $5 into it and hope it lasts me at least until the end of the warranty period. If it fails again, I hope they cover the shipping to them this time. Otherwise, it will not be worth it and I will most likely start shopping for a Logitech brand mouse. This is the first mouse that has failed on me that wasn't dropped or abused in some way and I have been using computer mice on PCs and Macs since the late 1980's when I was in grade school. I have had many brand name and no name mice from Microsoft, Apple, Logitech, HP and Dell to no name Chinese ones from a certain popular auction site that newegg is a member of but for some reason won't let us use their name here and have never had one just up and die on me like this one did. If this mouse does work, though, it is a great performer and very precise and feature rich for the price.

Rosewill 140mm Computer Case Fan (Case Cooling Fan) - Hydro Dynamic Bearing, Silent Fan, 2 Rotation Speed with PWM Control; ROCF-11003
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: >Price
>Performance
>Noise (or lack of) - quieter than stock H90 fan
>Even looks nice
>Braided cable
>Works great on radiators
>PWM

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I bought this case fan because I wanted a pull fan for my H90 liquid cooler. This one had some good reviews not as a case fan but as a radiator fan because it can move a lot of air through the little fins of a radiator. So, seeing that it is a very cheap fan ($13 shipped at the time) compared to what others like Corsair and Noctua had to offer with similar performance ($25 to $30), I took a chance on one. It turns out that this fan is actually quieter than the stock H90 fan at 7 volts. I decided to run all the fans that are not connected to a motherboard header at a constant 7 volts instead of 5v or 12v. I should also mention that this H90 is cooling an R9 290 GPU and not a CPU which is why it isn't on a PWM header on the motherboard. But, even at a relatively low speed when running at 7v, the Corsair fan is significantly louder. it is so loud that it is actually the only thing making noise in my PC when it is idle. I am going to be ordering a 2nd Hyperborea to replace the stock H90 fan so that my PC will be much quieter

Bike Bicycle 360 Degree Torch Clip Mount Front Light Bracket Flashlight Holder
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: >Fits flashlight I already had
>sturdy
>cheap

Cons: <n/a

Other Thoughts: I was looking for bicycle lights and most were in the $25-30 range. Then, I saw the flashlights that came with brackets and those were all in the $15 range. I figured since I already had a bunch of small-medium sized LED flashlights that I should check if they just sell the bracket. This one had the largest diameter for a flashlight and was also under $5 so I got it.
