This review is from: Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse
Pros: COMFORTABLE. Well, for hand types that like to rest their palm on the mouse. Simple and sensitive.
Cons: Need to make an account with RAZER to "work" with the program.
Other Thoughts: I just got this mouse today and giving it a trial run. So far it exceeds my expectations, by not being a GINOURMOUS mouse that eats up your entire hand.
It's comfortable, sleek, and well, expertly SIMPLE. There aren't 5000 buttons on it and no, it can't shoot missiles. WIth a budget of 50+, the deathadder really does do a great job at delivering simple (and customizable) mouse functions for Games and any other function.
The only annoying con is that you need to make an account with Razer in order to use the Synapse program. Otherwise you have a very sensitive mouse with little to no customization on the buttons on it (I believe you can customize every button). If anything, that's the only real issue as I haven't run into any other problem. My hand still feels FINE and comfortable.
This review is from: CM Storm Inferno - 4000 DPI Twin Laser Gaming Mouse with 128 KB Memory
Pros: See Other thoughts
Cons: See Other thoughts
Other Thoughts: I recently bought this (last November) and while it is GOOD, it isn't GREAT. Here's why:
Bulky SIZE: After hours of using my mouse for work and play, my (right hand) ring finger feels gets very sore. It's really not comfortable for long hours of uses. I naturally tend to place my ring finger alongside the remaining fingers to the side and keep my two clicking fingers on top. But with the design of this mouse, it's rather large so smaller hands suffer for the discomfort. I find myself placing my ring finger alongside my middle finger on top of the mouse to avoid the bulky discomfort. IF the sides of the mouse was more curved inside towards the front of the mouse, then comfort wouldn't be an issue for it's bulky size. I had a mouse (forgot what brand, maybe Logitech?) that was exactly just that and boy do I miss that mouse.
Minimal Sensitivity jerks: DO NOT GET any pieces of hair on the laser tracking pad or on the laser area itself, otherwise it can't "see" properly and will not move accordingly. This is probably the cause of random "jerks" on my mouse that moves the pointer randomly to some other direction. NOT FUN if your playing an online game that requires precise clicking/tracking/pointing/destroying. I have not (or ever) experienced the random "moving" of the mouse pointer though.
Useless thumb Side buttons: Unless your a gamer freak (or even if you are), tacking on more button's don't really make you a better player/computer enthusiast. The software that comes with this mouse can be a little confusing and I still haven't turned the buttons off yet, because accidentally clicking on them will "go back" on that webpage your visiting.
Everything else is a pro with this mouse though. Yet even still, I might buy a new mouse that better suit's my hands because the discomfort limits my enthusiast/work hours on this computer. Small hands, stay away from this mouse, it is better suited for big hands.
This review is from: KitchenAid KSM150PSER Artisan Series 5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer Red
Pros: sale price + discount
Free Shipping (arrived the next day, WOW)
KA stand mixers have the best (home affordable) engine to do mixing, WITH ATTACHMENTS POSSIBLE
Variety of color choices
You can finally whip them egg whites to a frosty/airy consistency.
Cons: Original price prior to being on sale for a limited time
The attachments aren't cheap either
Other Thoughts: A *NEW* 5 quart KA stand mixer for UNDER 300.00? Yeah good luck finding that elsewhere online or at a store. It sells for 300+ everywhere + TAX, unless in used condition.
BUT, if your going to fork out 240 (my discounted price) for a used KA and a NEW one costs about the same amount (with free shipping), which is the better deal here???
And once again, you can finally whip them egg whites to a frosty/air consistency.
