This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Fit 64GB USB Flash Drive Model SDCZ43-064G-G46
Cons: I used a tiny key ring to attach this little guy to a set of my keys.
It rubbed through the tiny lanyard hole on the flash drive in less than 3 weeks.
I thought I put it in a pocket...no idea where it went.
Other Thoughts: Needs a beefier retention mechanism, or needs to come with a lanyard/key ring that isn't going to break it.
Great performance, but gotta dock eggs for lack of durability.
This review is from: Corsair SABRE USB Wired RGB Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: Effortless gliding on even the most inadequate surfaces, which is even better on a good mouse pad. This makes the tracking and accuracy of this mouse sublime.
Near silent movement across my Corsair Vengeance MM600 mouse pad. Much more quiet than my G700.
LED Customization is sweet; See Cons also.
More programming options for buttons than you may know what to do with. If you can think of a series of keystrokes, clicks, dips, movements, or button presses..than you can make it happen in a single click of a button.
Lightweight. This may come as a con to some, but I now find the Logitech G700 this mouse replaced as a bit cumbersome; though I do miss some of the features of the G700.
Crazy range of adjustable DPI; See Other Thoughts.
If you don't require the adjustable DPI, those buttons can be reassigned to other functions.
The 'Lift Height' option is a unique setting to be able to adjust; See other thoughts.
Lengthy braided USB cable doesn't catch or snag on anything; See Other Thoughts.
Matte finish barely shows any signs of use after nearly a month.
1000 reports a second, so it will never miss a precise move you are going to make.
Just the right amount of *click* for button presses.
Corsair quality as always.
Cons: It needs, at least, 2 more buttons. The left/right click should NOT be included in the '8 Programmable Buttons'. It is nice that the DPI buttons can be set to do something else, but if you want the adjustable DPI and you remove the left/rick click from the equation...then you have 1/2 of the claimed # of customizable buttons. If you're going to give me cake, I absolutely must be able to eat it.
Add a free-scrolling option for the mouse wheel!
Lack of left/right mouse wheel clicks.
A mouse should not have a 147 page user manual, wherein nearly 30 pages are dedicated to how to configure the LED lighting features.
Still haven't gotten the fancy gradient, ripple, and wave lighting effects to work.
As many others have noted the software is not easy to pickup without delving into the user manual. Granted the mouse has a lot of features, they could be much easier to implement.
186,412K memory usage?! What for? I have 16GB, but it is excessive when 8 Logitech processes together use less than half that memory amount; 78,836K.
The 'Lift Height' feature is very sensitive. So sensitive that when I set it on low I thought the mouse malfunctioned! The mouse fails to track at all on the 'rough' side of my MM600 with it set to low. I had to put the mouse on my desk for it to work again and change the setting to something higher. On the smooth side of the MM600, it is very, very choppy; Very strange that the mouse wouldn't work on Corsair's own pad at that setting.
USB plug is unnecessarily large and yellow.
I have the Corsair Utility Engine and Corsair Gaming Headset software installed. A box pops up from a cold boot telling me to update Corsair software, but it does not specify which one. I click the update button and it takes me to Corsair's driver page, but it doesn't automatically choose what needs updating. I had to go into MSConfig, disable the programs, and reboot to find out which one actually needed updating.
Why do I need two separate programs running? Why not just combine them into one and have a separate tab to choose?
The mouse defaults to the lowest DPI setting from a bold boot, but not immediately. When the desktop first comes up it is at my chosen setting of #4, but once the CUE loads it goes to the lowest setting automatically...it's annoying. Just realized the mouse doesn't have internal memory to store the settings, and this is likely the cause...get with the times Corsair!
This also means you can't take your mouse with all your exact settings somewhere else and use it.
Other Thoughts: Love the different LED color for current DPI setting.
I'm not an avid FPS player. I found that the default DPI #4 of 3000 to be adequate for everyday use and the games that I play.
Who actually runs 8200 DPI?
Some have commented on the resistance between notches when moving the wheel. I find this to be pretty alright for gaming, even though it took some getting used to. However, if you're trying to quickly scroll through something, it is annoying...it definitely needs a free-scrolling option like Logitech uses.
I haven't used a corded mouse in...I can't remember how long it's been LoL! I thought the cord was going to be a menace, but it is quite nice. The silky smooth braiding doesn't cause any drag whatsoever! The combination of its feather-weight status, effortless tracking, and the silky smooth cable make it feel like a wireless mouse.
The ergonomics are very different from the numerous Logitech mice that I own and have used over the past ~18 years. I thought this was going to be a hindrance, but Corsair surprised me again. It didn't take too long to get used it and now it feels quite alright.
I bet adjustable weight would be a nice option for some people. I initially thought the light weight was going to make things weird, but it's so darn smooth!
The loudness of the clicks seem identical to my G700. Quite glad it isn't any louder...that would have drove me nuts and caused me to throw this thing in a desk drawer for a very rainy day.
Simplify the software and Corsair has a gem!
Pros: Solidly Built.
Awesome Looking Motherboard.
Every bell and whistle for a very reasonable price.
G.Skill Ripjaws X RAM matches perfectly
Superb CPU Overclocking Capability
Other Thoughts: My review never posted apparently, so I am going off of memory from a few months back.
This is an H series board, so the RAM can't run outside of normal speeds which limits you to 1600MHz.
The looks and feel of this board surprised me. I have owned a couple ASRock motherboards, but never a Fata1ty board...and it's nice.
Don't let the H97 trick you into thinking you can't get a good CPU overclock.
I got my 4790k to 4.7GHz with ease in this board! I could have gone higher but my 240mm AIO couldn't keep the temps low enough.
The BIOS didn't take long to figure out. Before long I was pushing my 4790k to very good speeds.
If you don't mind 1600MHz RAM speeds, then you really shouldn't look anywhere else considering everything you get in this board...buy one!
