This review is from: Logitech G430 USB Connector Circumaural Surround Sound Gaming Headset
Pros: Pros: Fits decently, a little snug on the ears and not as soft as some of my other ones. Has removable and washable ear pieces, that's nice. Adjustable (flexible) mic and can go up(physically move upwards out of mouth range) to cancel out some of your noise. Decent for a mid-grade headset. Nice blue color and they swivel so you can set them down flat on a surface.
Cons: Cons: So for anyone using a RAZER device (black widow, naga, death adder, anything) it seems that there is a conflict with the Synapse 2.0 and the LGS software that Logitech is currently using. Read the forums and look for the posts, it's been a year and this issue STILL isn't fixed. I've only been posting to their forums for 1 day, but I'm going to continue to do this and see what happens and if they give me my feedback. I can say that this is basically just a 2 stereo headset without the 'digital 7 surround' software that is enabled with the LGS software, so basically no better than a $9.99 headset mic from Radio-Shack(no offense to them, stand up guys there). Razer is a decently large company and Logitech is a REALLY big company, so why it's taken over a year and still has not been fixed/addressed, I have no idea.
While some of you might think "Well Duke, just download older drivers, that should fix the problem!", sorry wrong. See the 8.40 drivers that everyone is talking about on the forums and websites for the G930(yes different headset) work great, because they are an older headset. When I tried to use this driver with the newer midgrade G430's, no worky. The headset is to new and the 8.40 LGS software doesn't detect it, leaving me out in the rain, with horrific sound quality.

Other Thoughts: While I do think this is a decent product, and probably worth about $60-75, I and the community should expect that the software be viable and work arounds shouldn't take over a year to come for us.
The Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) is kind of your bread and butter to your mic/headset product lines....why you have not addressed this issue being incompatible with a pretty large gaming manufacturers peripherals, such as Razer, is beyond me. Please help us out here Logitech, we are patiently waiting...but will not wait for much longer....
This review is from: Razer BlackWidow Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard – Cherry MX Blue (RZ03-00391500-R3U1)
Pros: 1. Mechanical keyboard, nuff said. When you hit a button, you know you hit a button.
2. Layout is nice and ergonomic, much like gamer keyboards of this type.
3. The Audio in and Mic in ON the keyboard....yeah, baller! Makes for connecting things right in front of you super easy, super quick and ergonomically appropriate to a gamer.
4. Extra hotkeys on the left side are nice as well to binding to random items that you might want to use in day-to-day computing.
Cons: 1. Mechanical keyboard sound. I like it, it's a distinct sound that if you aren't an old school typist or ever used one before, it might get annoying to you. Not a fault of the company, just how a mechanical keyboard is built; be warned if you've never used one before.
2. I like the Matrix/Japanese-American hybrid font they use on the letters, but what I don't like is that in dim lighting, sometimes it is hard to make out a letter if you've lost your finger placement.
Other Thoughts: Over all, a solid keyboard for someone who likes the feel and sound of a mechanical keyboard. Ergonomically is the same as most, with a couple differences, mainly the hotkeys on the left hand side. The only reason I'm giving 4 out of 5 eggs is due to the font. At night, if I lose my fingering, which happens since I don't have my fingers on the ASDF/JKL; for gaming, it's hard to see what the letters are due to the funky Matrix/Japanese-American hybrid style font. Not a big deal, but it's a TAD bit annoying. If you have the extra 30 dollars, go and get the backlit one, it would make it easier to find your way AND is worth the money in my opinion. Mic/Speaker In on the keyboard are awesome as well, really nice to have right there at your fingertips. Great keyboard and well rounded. I'll keep for a little while until I save up a bit for the $130 backlit RAZAR keyboard and upgrade to that. Kudos RAZAR, kudos! ;-)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse
Pros: 1. Smooth design and even though it 'looks' like a traditional mouse (egg/oblong shape), the slight curves around the buttons and backend are very ergonomic for the hand.
2. Two buttons on the side, perfect. If you really need to spam with eleventy-billion buttons on your mouse, then this isn't for you. But for having two extra items that you need to hotkey in and that are actually functional for your hand, two works great.
3. The lighting is nice, green and pulsating on the RAZOR symbol and solid green on the mouse wheel.
4. They hype the "ergonomic rubber grip siding", which I thought was just hype...Nope. Great idea and even though it's a small patch of rubber, actually does help with grip and secure feel in your hand.
Cons: 1. This mouse is large-to-x-large in size. If you have a smaller hand then say a male x-large glove size, I'd stay away. My huge bear claw/Johnny Bench-ington hands are perfect for it; be warned if you have smaller hands is all! :-)
Other Thoughts: I've never been one to buy into the "ZOMG, awesome gamer mouse bro" attitude, but I take all that back after using this mouse for 1 hour. The ergonomics, colors, buttons, and overall feel of the mouse is REALLY nice. My hands, x-large/freakishly bear claw like, are a perfect fit for it. Smaller hands; be warned, might be a little bit large for you, so just be careful. The wheel has a smooth action, laser is pinpoint accurate with no 'de-sync/jump' issues, and the buttons are smooth. Over all, a wonderful mouse for a larger hand, and even if you have a smaller hand you might like it, but I doubt it. RAZOR continues to impress me with their items and I'm confident in my gaming that the mouse won't fail me by an accidental click or a click not going through. Kudos RAZOR, kudos! ;-)READ FULL REVIEW
