This review is from: Logitech G9x Black Two modes scroll USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: when it works it works well; everything you would expect from a quality gaming mouse.
Cons: I started having problems with this mouse well before it's one year anniversary, primarily double clicking and that has been a problem I've had with all Logitech mice I've ever used. It doesn't matter how well the mouse works in other aspects when it starts double clicking it isn't worth a dang.
Oh, almost forgot to mention that this gaming mouse just stops working in the middle of many games; I can audibly hear it disconnecting from the USB and then reconnecting when it feels like it.
Other Thoughts: I highly doubt that I will ever buy another Logitech mouse ever again. Always looks good on paper, but rarely lasts more than a year. Tired of paying top dollar for mice that don't last. And then you have to deal with customer service; did you do this and that - I mean com'on a user shouldn't have to constantly tweak mouse sensitivity settings and reset USB connections. And I suppose Logitech must have gotten a lot of complaints against this mouse; when I noticed that "newegg" doesn't carry the G9X I did a quick check on "Logitech" and sure enough they don't make it any more.
I purchased the G9X to replace a G9, which was not only the best Logitech mouse I ever owned, but the best mouse I ever owned; it performed flawlessly for almost, very close to, but not quite, three years. One would assume the G9X to be an improved G9, but not the case, at all. The G9X has proven to be an undependable piece of high priced garbage which started to show signs of not being dependable after only three months. I suppose writing this review now is a waste of time, but I have been so upset with the overall lack of performance of this mouse that I had to write something somewhere. I seriously doubt I waste my money on a "Logitech" mouse every again.
This review is from: World of Warcraft: Battle Chest w/ Lich King PC Game
Pros: I'm sorry I can't speak to any Pros as I've never actually played the game. I will say up front that if I had read all the small print I would have never purchase this Battle Chest (B C) and although the WoW B C I purchased was not the one listed here; Lich King had just been released at the time I purchase this B C, but by the time Blizzard had done all it's downloading, upgrading, and installing Lich King ended up being part of the B C. I guess I could say the installation time is a big negative, I mean by the time Blizzard gets through with all it's downloading, upgrading, and installing it took nearly an hour to do the whole thing, but truthfully I don't consider that a negative, for the type game it is that's to be expected.
Cons: As I said if I had read all the small print I wouldn't have purchased this B C in the first place, but I wasn't that smart and I ended up paying $60.00 for software that I could not run on my system as a single user, stand alone game. It was only after everything was installed that I realized that in addition to paying for the B C I was going to have to shell out fifteen dollars a month just for the privilege of playing the game.
But the big rub came when I discovered that I could have downloaded the software from the Blizzard site for FREE. And it would have take just as much time for Blizzard to download, update, upgrade, and install all the needed files and I would have ended up with the same result.
And after supporting Blizzard for many years by purchasing every Warcraft game they made, Starcraft, and even Diablo (just don't personally care for it I was just rubbed the wrong way by their then marketing techniques.
Other Thoughts: My biggest mistake was not reading the small print; I take responsibility for that, but having to pay for software that you can download for free and then finding out you have to shell out even more money every month is a major rub to me.
I thought I was buying a game I could install and play on my computer as a single user, as a stand alone game like all the other games I had purchased from Blizzard.
I just felt cheated after finding out all the facts. I should have been smarter.
I'm sure the game itself is as outstanding as every other game I've ever purchased from Blizzard, including Diablo; I just don't care for Diablo, but their move away from computer software to an online venue just rubs me the wrong way. My opinion, of course.
This review is from: BELKIN Hi-Speed USB 2.0 5-Port PCI Card Model F5U220v1
Pros: The ASUS P3V133 Motherboard that came with the computer I bought over 10 years ago was a great motherboard considering technology at the time, but it was seriously handicapped when it came to USB ports and so I bought this card to add USB ports. If it was going to add USB 2 capability that was a bonus. I installed this PCI Card to the ASUS P3V133 over five years ago. The Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 PCI Card and the ASUS P3V133 are still operational.
Cons: It only works on older systems; only thing I can thing of.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that this card was developed years ago. I would only recommend installing this on older machines; five years or older. Why anyone would want to install a card like this on a newer machine I don't know. All newer computers come with the latest versions of USB and other types of connections, and all newer computers I've seen have plenty of USB ports and if you need more ports then get a modern USB Hub; most can be chained together to give you almost unlimited ports.READ FULL REVIEW
