Pros: I had a set of these a few years back for my own build, and they were the best option I could think of to show an old feller what a performance boost he could get just by upgrading his PC's memory.
He is ecstatic with it... as am I. I'd usually get a call every week to go through his computer checking for what was making it run slow... decided to show him that running Windows 7 with 2GB on one stick (that didn't even have a heatsink, that old school a stick of DDR2) was NOT right.
Went from an eight minute wait on the O/S to finish booting, and being able to enter something in a web-address bar... to under two minutes.
Cons: Didn't come with a can of air-duster. That old feller's never heard of cleaning his computer... almost lost my vision quickly blowing on his CPU fan/heatsink.
Other Thoughts: Will post another review after six or so months, when the old feller's had more time to try it out and we know it won't suddenly die (kudos for the lifetime warranty, G.SKILL).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Went from playing ARMA III on low settings, far from the highest resolution my monitor supported (1920x1280), averaging around ~30fps, to everything simply topped out, and still being able to rock ~30fps.
Overall temperature in my case dropped, which was a huge plus.
Because the temperature dropped, so too did the noise of fans fighting to bring it down.
Cons: None... yet.
Other Thoughts: Compared performance jump from a 6950 to this 7970.
From playing around with it, I found that my bottleneck has become my CPU, and one of my old RAID drives (WD VelociRaptor).
This review is from: Razer Spectre StarCraft II Heart of The Swarm Gaming Mouse
Pros: DPI switches work.
Blue LED is a relaxing, low yet solid blue - not an annoying, glaring blue.
Plug and play.
Cons: The side buttons (left side) are inconveniently placed. My thumb brushes and clicks them when I'm not specifically paying attention to that.
Other Thoughts: Shame they didn't put those side buttons on the pinky side of the mouse (right handers). That would have been nice.READ FULL REVIEW
