RAZER Sphex Gaming Grade Desktop Skin
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Quite nice. 06/10/2014

This review is from: RAZER Sphex Gaming Grade Desktop Skin

Pros: Low Profile, no interference between the laser sensor and mat. Doesn't give me pain in my wrist because it is so thin. Awesome for any game I've played, and I usually tend to play on very high sensitivities, and my mouse reacts amazingly.

Cons: Only issue is that after ~2 months one corner became slightly less sticky, and that corner is in the front, so every once in a while it'll come up when I touch it, but it is nothing too serious. It stays down still very well. I did contact Razer about this, and it's taken them a week and a half with no response about how to regain the stick on the mat. Waiting to hear back from them, when I do I'll probably update if stickiness comes back.

COUGAR Spike Black Steel / Plastic MicroATX Mini Tower Gaming Case with USB 3.0 and 12CM Cougar Fan

4 out of 5 eggs Looks Okay, installation was kind of a pain. 01/08/2014

This review is from: COUGAR Spike Black Steel / Plastic MicroATX Mini Tower Gaming Case with USB 3.0 and 12CM Cougar Fan

Pros: Very light case, which I was definitely okay with. The tool-lessness is a good feature, though I prefer mounting it myself. I do like how the 5.25" bays you can fully remove the tool-less bracket so that it's simply not there. Good spacing, I have plans to fill it with fans so that it will be quiet and cool, and 4 - 120mm fans should definitely do so. The fan it does come with is nice, does it's job and isn't too loud, especially since I have fan controllers on the motherboard I got it with. Spacing is good for drives and mobo.

Cons: I do wish the plastic was steel, but it doesn't matter, it looks fine, it's just the sound it makes. The SSD mount on the bottom of the case was a good idea, but in practice it is idiotic, I'm not 100% if this is the case with all PSU sata power connectors, but it was impossible for me to have the power connector in with it mounted there will just screws. My father and I made small plastic stilts with compression washers to hold it down tight, but acquire the extra space to plug it in. Also, I would have liked if the tool-less mounting brackets were removable for the 3.5" inch bays, because as I said previous I prefer to screw mount them.

SanDisk Extreme II 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I wasn't expecting it to perform so well. I tested it as soon as I loaded windows to it and got the drivers, and made sure the firmware was up to date. I got a 522MB/s for sequential reads and a 495MB/s on sequential write. I've had it for a month, and I have messed around with my boot settings and what not as I normally do to get the most speed out of my system and it boots in around 10 seconds. This is also coming from a 2.5" 7200rpm 500GB drive, so there is that, but this SSD is prime, get this or something similar, I wouldn't have gotten anything else after seeing the speeds.

Cons: The installation was odd, I have a Dell XPS 17 L702X LT. I was replacing a 500GB 2.5" drive, and when I was screwing the mounting brackets I had to actually bend the bracket to screw it in well. It wasn't an issue so much as it was odd that it wouldn't mount properly. If the bracket was designed differently it wouldn't have affected it, since a metal bar crossed the top of the drive near the SATA ports, but all is well, so no complaints from me in reality.

Other Thoughts: GET IT!
