This review is from: RAZER Naga Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming Mouse
Pros: It's extremely smooth and the sensitivity settings are great. The cord is longer than on my previous gaming mouse (CybaSnipah StingRay).
Cons: Size: It's quite small. I was already using a relatively small mouse, but this thing feels tiny and makes my hand cramp.
Standard Button layout: The forward and back buttons are terribly positioned. You really have to stretch your index finger over to them. Additionally, they're so small that hitting one of them without also hitting either left-click or the other button is difficult.
Extra Buttons: I love the idea of having so many extra buttons. Unfortunately, it just doesn't work. The bottom row of buttons forces you awkwardly drag your thumb along the mouse mat. The middle two columns of buttons are very difficult to distinguish between. You frequently find yourself putting your thumb in an awkward position trying to hit just one button.
Other Thoughts: I love this idea I just wish they'd made it more natural feeling and kept the forward / back buttons in a place that was actually usable. A 3x3 configuration for the numbered buttons would make more sense and would let you rest your thumb in the middle and rock forward / back to hit the 1st and 3rd columns.
I'm accustomed to having to do some work to get used to a new mouse, but holding this thing is too painful to make it worth it.
This review is from: iRam 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Memory For Apple Model IR4GSO1066D3K
Pros: Works flawlessly in my Mac Mini. I've been using it everyday for recording for nearly a year now.
Other Thoughts: RAM installation on the Minis sucks. YouTube videos make it possible, but it's not well designed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PLANTRONICS GameCom 367 Closed-ear 3.5mm Circumaural Stereo Headset
Pros: These things are amazing! Plush material and padding both on top of your head and all around the ear cups. They completely cover your ears which is great for blocking out sound, be it your PC's fans, your kids, neighbors, whatever!
I like the design of the inline volume knob - it rotates and includes indicators so you know what it's currently set at. This is much better than the old school kind where you just spin the notched wheel.
The mic conveniently tucks away in the headphones for travel / when you're not using it. It doesn't go right in front of your mouth but I've had no trouble with it picking up my voice and it actually makes it easier to drink your beverage / eat your snack while gaming. You don't have to knock your mic outta the way just to take a sip / bite.
They sound great and at $40 represent a huge improvement over $20 headsets without costing you an arm and a leg like $80-$100 headsets do.
Cons: They can be a *little* tight on your head. But, I've got sort of a big head so maybe it's just me. You do get used to it pretty quickly and I'm sure eventually they'll stretch out a little bit.
Other Thoughts: These headsets were on all of the freeplay PC's at PAX. My friend and I both put them on, then immediately took them off and said, "wow!" We have since both purchased them from Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
