This review is from: Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB Tunable Gaming Mouse
Pros: Good balance of buttons,
Not over the top,
Custom weight, custom buttons with Logitech software,
Feels like a quality build,
Sturdy scroll wheel, feels like solid metal (no rubber to stretch out, plastic to break)
Great for FPS, regular P.C. usage and acceptable for MMO
Cons: When I first received my mouse the scroll wheel had absolutely no resistance, I spun the wheel and it continued to free spin for over 12 seconds... yes I counted!
After a day of using the mouse something must have freed up and the wheel now clicks as it should. you would think that the manufacturer QC would have picked up on this, however if it was due to jostling around during shipping, it worry's me that there are loose parts inside (no rattling noise though) as the packaging was sound and intact
Other Thoughts: Reading reviews before I purchased this mouse, I was looking for a Large "palm grip" mouse since the "claw grip" style mice tend to cramp my hands considerably with prolonged usage. Everyone's reviews said this was a very large mouse.... it is not.
It is a large mouse for some but Logitech has larger. This mouse is only slightly larger than a Steel-series Sensi Raw, which is only 3 mm longer than my 1990's two button Dell mouse.
I use all the weights in the mouse and like the added feature. makes it feel beefier and i tend to not overshoot what I am trying to click as often.
I would certainly recomend this mouse to anyone looking, It's a good mouse, I just hope for longevity.
Pros: A cheaper "refurbished" option for a gaming monitor, 144hz, VESA mount, Blue light filter, all the ports you could use.
Cons: Color representation is pretty good but Blacks are a charcoal grey at best, very small amount of backlight bleed along entire monitor on all 3 I bought for my surround setup.
These monitors are not G-Sync compatible.
-1 Egg for the following:
1 monitor came with an HDMI cable and 2 came with an DVI SINGLE LINK cable.... All 60 Hz cables with a 144Hz Monitor?....!
1 monitor came with no power cord.... really?... no power-cord.... and an HDMI to DVI single link cable....
Sounds like the company who refurbishes these (according to Newegg its not ASUS) is keeping the good hardware for themselves as these monitors were originally shipped with DVI Dual Link 144Hz Cables.
Other Thoughts: -1 egg..... should be -2
When I called newegg about the missing power cord they gave me two options, #1 buy a power-cord and they will reimburse me the amount up to 15$ or... #2 send the monitor back and they will send me a replacement monitor.
So I looked for a compatible powercable and could not find one locally in my area that was the same length connection nor with the right color for under $60 (they will only reimburse me up to $15), I really didn't want to send the monitor back.
Upset that now I have to pay the added price of 3 cables that support 144Hz I called them back and told them I would like a replacement sent like offered in my previous call, I asked about and was told that newegg does not have spare cables they could send, so an RMA was setup for a replacement.
After 7 days of shipping and a deliberate wait of the full 5 days before they confirmed they received the monitor (this delay was to help ensure that my 30 day warranty with newegg will have expired , the RMA was rejected and they just crammed some generic lose fitting power-cord into the box and shipped it back to me, After I was specifically told that newegg would not be able to supply a power-cord?!
Then another 7 days shipping back to me. With a two day delay in a town close to me. A quick call to UPS and they told me that Newegg requested that the package be delivered specifically on a certain day so therefore they had to delay it or it would be sent early by one day. So including weekends I received the monitor back the day after the newegg 30 day warranty has expired and haven't used the monitor for 30 min.... don't forget the original 3 day delay when I bought the monitor for processing and the 7 days (including weekends) shipping to get to my address, they shipped it from one warehouse to another then shipped it to me from there. Why not simply from the original warehouse directly to me?!??
The way newegg resolved this issue with me and all the delay tactics they used clearly shows to me newegg knows there are issues with these refurbished monitors and will drop them on you without hesitation, Customer service will tell you what you want to hear just to end the call then someone else will change the agreement without your consent.
Do not waste your money on this refurbished monitor.
I recommend for another $80 you can buy a brand new version of this monitor with the right cables and a real 3 year Warranty through ASUS.
Pros: Its simply just awesome, plays every tripple A game I own at ultra and rocks it, I want another just to SLI it to over kill games to a ridiculous level of sillyness (such as 4-5k).
Cons: had to purchase backing plate seperatly
Other Thoughts: I overclocked it for a day and it overclocked like a champ! but there was no real need to do so, so I just run it at stock settings and it doesnt make any noticeable difference in the least on my 1ms 144hz monitor!
temps are very reasonable and power consumption is acceptably low noise is non existant, not necessary to SLI or Xfire with multiple cards... just buy this one and be very happy for years to come!
NVidea is where it is at... AMD is cheap but, heavy on power consumption, and youll need to upgrade 1-2 years after purchasing top-o-the-line products and in my opinion 2-5 years behind!
team GREEN and BLUE is certainly the way to go!
