This review is from: Razer Orochi Mobile PC Gaming Mouse
Pros: Lots of settings for DPI. Smooth mouse movement.
Cons: The documentation that comes with the product does not specify that it requires the Razer Synapse software. I had to contact tech support to find this out.
The default DPI is the highest setting, so the mouse is unusable at such a high DPI until you install the software.
Once the software was installed, the mouse would randomly disconnect. As I'm writing this now, the mouse works for about 10 sec, then stops working.
As this was my first Razer product, I will not be buying another.
Pros: Lots of great options in the UI. Easy to use interface. Straightforward setup.
Cons: Support is good, but bound by their scripts.
Other Thoughts: I bought one of these at Best Buy. When I got home, the power light was flashing, but I didn't think too much of it. I called support to help me setup my connection to my existing FiOS Modem/Router as a second router with a different subnet.
After spending an hour on the phone, getting disconnected, and dealing with 3 different support reps (who were all professional and helpful) I had the support rep tell me to take it back to the store because the firmware was corrupted and you couldn't make any kind of connection to the router, even to update the firmware.
So when I got the second one, everything was easy. I was able to set up the second subnet myself after some quick googling. I connected it to my downstairs repeater/range extender (also Netgear).
So all in all, it took a lot of work, but the network is up and running with the speeds I'm paying for as if you were connected directly to the ISP modem router.
I'd say my rating is for the router itself. -1 egg for having to go back to the store to get a working one. The one I returned wasn't repackaged or seemed like it had been opened before, it was just a defective unit that was not tested appropriately.
With the working router everything is good.
This review is from: DIYPC V3Plus-B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: All-metal case
Easy setup with disassembled case
Cons: Very tight fit inside (of course) with little guidance as to CPU cooler height limitation.
Lacks top ventilation which would dramatically aid airflow.
Other Thoughts: I love the look and small-ness of this case. I would not recommend it for any application that needs a graphics card that requires a fan, but for what it is, it works perfectly.
I built a small print server from an old mini-ITX board with LGA 775 chip. It stays quiet and out of the way and allows for much easier printer sharing.
If cooling is an issue for you, if you can spare the extra 3.5" hard drive spot, there are some hard drive coolers which can mount in the same space (make sure the cooler mounts on the four holes on the underside of the hard drive) which can draw in air from the ventilation on the bottom of the case. For example:
It will make it a little louder, but if you can find a HDD cooler with a larger fan, it isn't so much of an issue.
