This review is from: Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse
Pros: More buttons than you can ever possibly need. Im not kidding you have 16 buttons to bind not including the 3 regular mouse clicks and the G-Shift key, which goes to 35 when you hold the G-Shift key down.
The logitech software for the most part is solid. It's easy enough to set up profiles or macros but falls short when it comes to picking or using profiles.
It has a nice braided cord.
Nearly everything is rebindable. The only thing you cant rebind is the mouse wheel scroll (tho the tilt can be rebound)
All the thumb keys are individually angled so with practice you can quickly tell them apart and avoid misclicks.
Cons: TOO WIDE! The third flat click button adds a VERY large amount of real estate to the top of the mouse. This makes it very uncomfortable for various reasons, and makes misclicks more common than you would like.
The zillion buttons are nice but I found myself accidentally pressing the thumb buttons when I went to move the mouse, and accidently pressing the G-sync key when I intended to hit the right click. Thought I would get used to it, but all that ended up happening was a ton of palm strain from the new mouse shape and alot of misclicks.
Inherit mouse acceleration that cannot be turned off.
Trying to change profiles is like pulling teeth. I own a g510s with an LCD and a profile app on it. I cant imagine the frustration of trying to switch profiles without this keyboard. It never seems to want to switch when you do it thru the software and setting up macros causes the software to crash and go back to the default profile.
Profiles saved to the mouse itself are seriously gimped when compared to profiles located on the computer. You only get like 3 out of the 7 or 8 possible options for bindings. MInor complaint, but it forced me to use the horrible app locked profiles that never work correctly.
Other Thoughts: I have small hands and still found myself mashing more than a single thumb button. Would prob be very difficult for people with large hands which makes no sense because it feels designed for people with large hands due to how incredibly wide it is.
Not a mouse you can easily get a feel for by checking out a display for a minute. It felt amazing at first, but once I actually tried to use it I ran into nothing but frustration(I.E when you are concentrating on the mouse and just hitting buttons its easy. When you are concentrating on a game or a task you'll find yourself making a ton of mistakes.)
Pros: Very fast
Zero issues out of box
I know if this drive ever fails, I can send it back and chances are Ill get an upgrade.
Cons: This thing is LOUD, I mean crazy loud with odd beeps and boops and grinding sounds even when functioning perfectly (seems to not just be my drive too).
They tend not to last very long for some reason so have a backup ready or be ready to lose everything.
Other Thoughts: WD support is by far the best Ive ever dealt with in my 10+ years of working on computers, hell its the best company Ive ever dealt with period (think of them as the Anti-ASUS).
Ive had two Black drives fail on me in the past 4 years, and so far both times WD gladly accepted them free of charge for an RMA, and both times they upgraded the HDD to a higher capacity model.
I had a 1 TB fail a few months back, and upon return from the RMA I had a brand new 2TB drive. It really takes the sting out of the whole RMA process when you get a free upgrade.
This was also the case when my 650 failed. I was sent a 1TB drive, (the 1TB drive that failed was one I purchased for RAID to go with this one)
Im not crazy about the drives failure rate with me but atleast I know if I do encounter a problem, it will not only be easy to arrange an RMA but chances are I will receive some sort of compensation for my trouble.
I will never buy a HDD from another company again.
This review is from: Mr. Beer Deluxe Edition Home Brew Beer Kit 20290
Pros: Easy to use
Comes with everything needed
Tons of fun
Resulting beer is palatable
Cons: None, you arent buying a distilling station here, nor are you making your own malt so you really cant complain.
Other Thoughts: The mash that comes with the set is some sort of lager that was very bland tasting. All other mashes for the different types of beer are ordered through a catalog that comes with the kit. great 21st birthday present but really not for someone who genuinely wants to brew beerREAD FULL REVIEW
