This review is from: Logitech G300 Black/Gray 9 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2500 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Very good tracking, buttons still working well after a year, lighting is pleasing, Logitech quality.
Cons: Very lightweight, bottom isn't perfectly flat and causes the mouse to rock slightly.
Other Thoughts: I love this mouse. I've had it for probably two years now, and even though I have others, I always go back to this one. I love the shoulder buttons, I use them all in basically every game I play. I didn't know if I'd like them at first because of the layout (I was used to side buttons previously), but now I find them indispensable and I won't buy another mouse unless they have the same configuration.
The only issues I've ever had are minor, mine has a slight rock to it because the bottom isn't perfectly flat, even after years of use, and the mouse is so lightweight that the cord hanging off the desk is enough to drag it around.
It is a small mouse and will be claw grip for anyone except those with the smallest of small hands. I have a 9" finger span and every mouse is claw grip to me, so I can't complain about that.
It looks like you probably can't buy this on the Egg anymore, but if you can find it, definitely buy it.
Pros: Low power consumption, good looking, decent performance, Crossfire scaling is good.
Cons: Expensive compared to the performance you receive. Doesn't perform quite as expected.
Other Thoughts: This is an update to my first review. I finally did receive the cards, now I'm just waiting for the Egg to refund my shipping costs.
I bought these cards mainly for SWTOR. My old 5770 just couldn't handle that game at 1080p. These do a better job of it, I'm able to max the game out and keep a respectable framerate (maxed at 60 with vsynch most of the time). The game itself is poorly optimized, so it fluctuates wildly sometimes. PvP is another matter, it lags quite bad in warzones.
Performance in other games isn't quite so well. My "go-to" shooter right now is Black Ops, and I've actually seen a decrease in performance with that game. I haven't had a chance to pick up BF3 yet, so I can't give any word there.
I'm hoping that the issue is drivers and will get sorted out soon. As of right now we're stuck with pre-certified drivers, the current version being 12.2 on AMD's site (which is odd considering I got 12.3 from them a week ago, which is currently installed).
Pros: According to the reviews on various sites these provide quite a nice "bang for the buck". Supposedly scale very, very well in crossfire.
Looks super sexy, runs cool, low power requirements. XFX brand, one I've always trusted.
Cons: Price to performance ratio is slightly off. The cards are a little more expensive than they should be right now. You can get more powerful cards for cheaper, even within ATI's own products.
Other Thoughts: I ordered two of these after reading/watching many reviews. My main desire was to update my current system from one XFX 5770 without having to buy a new psu to supply power to more heavy weight cards, and without breaking the bank. Supposedly these scale extremely well in crossfire, sometimes gaining more than 100% performance over one card.
I would love to give a real review on the cards if I could actually get them. I paid Newegg for their next day delivery, which should have arrived yesterday. As of now all I have is UPS saying that there has been an exception during shipping. That's all. I have no idea on the status of my cards, and it is currently a day past the due delivery date. As of right now Newegg gets 1 egg due to the fact that my order is somewhere in limbo and no one, either Newegg or UPS, is replying to my emails. Right now I'm $350 in the hole for something that I don't have.
I will, hopefully, give a more positive review once I receive my items.
