AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's a great chip. I finally caught it on sale again for 139 and descended like a vulture. At that price you just can't pass this chip up. I ran a PhenomII 965 for years before upgrading to a 4350, and that chip was a powerhouse too. It's sad that this is the end of the line for "true" CPUs. Get it while you still can.

Cons: It likes power. No, really, it likes a LOT of power. which means it's going to run hot. I knew this going in so it's not really a con, but something you will want to be prepared for. You'll need a decent cooler. Evo 212 does the job, but it's a beast to fit in even gaming cases that are a few years old (I have the first gen Storm Scout and I had to remove a panel fan to fit it).

However, if you plan to invest in this 8 core chip, respect it and get it the cooling it deserves. Get a good block or go water.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to miss CPUs. Sure APUs are cute, but I'm old fashioned and like the separation of tasks. Let my CPU be a CPU and my GPU be a GPU. I wish AMD would stay in the gaming business and not worry about copying every little thing that Intel does, but that's the way business works now. One company makes something that is moderately successful and all of a sudden every device on the planet has to have a tablet interface.

NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I really love these netgear switches. You plug them in, and they do the work. Lifetime warranty, no weird things going on that you have to troubleshoot (like a certain cisco switch that inexplicably blocked things and needed a firmware downgrade to correct... yes, a layer 2 SWITCH.) There's really nothing bad I have to say about these. The design is elegant and solid, not like some of the more flashy, obnoxious switches I've seen.

Cons: I can't think of any, really. It's a fast switch that you can plug in and never think about again.

Other Thoughts: You can't go wrong with netgear.

UtechSmart Venus 50 to 16400 DPI Laser MMO Gaming Mouse for PC - 18 Programmable Buttons - Weight Tuning Cartridge - 12 Side Buttons - 5 Programmable User Profiles - Omron Micro Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's half the price of a naga or even a g600, and the same design. Enough buttons to convert even the most adamant "clicker". It will work right out of the gate as a numpad (which is how I use it) or you can use the surprisingly lightweight software to further configure it. The build quality feels solid.

Cons: I'm still on the hunt for a mouse that fits my hand like the original nagas did. The g600 is a massive mouse. This is about the same size. Razer has also opted to manufacture only a large sized mouse. So, basically it will come down to what price you want to pay for your mouse since there really isn't much to differentiate the three anymore. If it's down to cost, I'd say purchase this one.

Other Thoughts: I understand that the target market is males 25-35, but many women are entering the landscape and it would be nice for a couple of those manufacturing lines to start pumping out mice that will fit a smaller hand comfortably. I guess that those days are gone, and I'll never find another mouse that fit as beautifully as that old naga.
