This review is from: Corsair M65 USB Wired RGB Laser Gaming Mouse - Black
Pros: Looks nice minus the t-stamp (new logo)
Has a nice texture
Tracks properly and accurately
Cons: Everything else. And by everything I mean the one function you need from a mouse, as a point-and-CLICK device. The issue here is that this mouse chooses to double-click whenever it wants to from a single press of the left mouse button. Sometimes it gets locked into a double-click cycle and I need to pull the left click cover up and reseat it. Sometimes it only happens once.
I don't know why this happens but at this price I'm beyond disappointed. Google-ing the issue brings up several other reports of this happening so I know that this is not an isolated incident. For $70 USD I shouldn't have an issue with the performance of the product.
To put this in perspective, I visited about 3-4 other pages on newegg (that I did not want to) on the way to write this review due to double-clicking.
Other Thoughts: I haven't attempted to contact Corsair to have them rectify the situation but this will be the last product I purchase from them. Back in the day they were a solid company, now they pander to the lowest common denominator with their "gaming" line of products.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: other thoughts only
Cons: other thoughts only
Other Thoughts: This is just an addition to my other review.
I do not have an SLI setup. The popping (I think it's a capacitor) has nothing to do with my setup outside of the monitor itself. It has happened in the bottom left quadrant and the top right quadrant. As much as I would like to get inside and verify it I will not open up a $650 monitor and scratch it. I am waiting for it to fail to send it in or let it keep doing its thing.
The only other issue I have is that sometimes, though not often, it will not wake from going to sleep or after a power off while my computer is still running. This MIGHT be a setting in windows that I've overlooked, though I seriously doubt it based on other reviews/
Pros: -Affordable 4k
-Great colors to the average joe
-Stand is very good saving you from buying a vesa mount with pivot, height adjust, tilt, and swivel features.
-Matte bezel prevents fingerprint smudges.
Cons: -4k (I'm not a huge fan of 4k it turns out)
-Capacitor popping (see other thoughts).
-Screen size may be too small for such a high resolution. Things like text and images in webpages at native res are extremely small and difficult to see.
-Software not ready for this level of hardware adoption.
Other Thoughts: Over the past month or two I have noticed some capacitor popping followed by screen artifacts spreading horizontally through the screen. I cannot actually confirm the capacitors are popping without most likely voiding my warranty or scratching the heck out of my screen so I am not 100% on this. Nonetheless the popping sound is clear and the artifacts that follow it are real. Scary stuff the first time, still scary the third.
4k adoption may be more for the person that needs multiple large windows for content creation and has a very limited desk space at this time. As it turns out, it is pretty awful for anything else. If there was some software available from Asus that allowed you to manage the placement of the windows I might be able to see past the text size issue. I was intending to code on this monitor in portrait mode, but I don't see that happening.
