SteelSeries Rival 100 Optical Gaming Mouse - Black
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Easy to get a good grip, with either hand. Solid and precise build and feel. 04/19/2016

This review is from: SteelSeries Rival 100 Optical Gaming Mouse - Black

Pros: In terms of buttons, they feel solid.Side buttons are good too and Wheel click is smooth.
Rival 100 is quite sturdy. Even the side grips have a high quality feeling to them.
The Rival 100 works quite well set on 500 CPI
I could also recommend use at 1000 CPI ,but none higher, which i wouldnt use higher than 1000 CPI anyway.So not a minus egg for me.Although when inserted into a usb 3.0 there is noticable less lack.But i use my usb.3.0 for external hard drives and this would be a cable swap, ie to much trouble...

More Pros are the solid feel ,precise tracking and since iam
Ambidextrous it feels good in both my right or left hands

Cons: Software, i had no use for, especially since i do not play the default games that is included in their software settings.So no way i am going to enable another start up item.

Other Thoughts: You can change lighting options,macros and button defaults and CPI steps to cycle through in the Steel series Software,but i really do not like the software and uninstalled it as the Rival 100 works fine without it.
The Number of buttons are 6 but i use this mouse for cad and website design .
When i am in my website server and using the Rival 100 i am 100 percent confident that i will not wrong click and drag any folder that will crash the website i am working on.
This is why i can easily give 5 stars

Thanks to Rival & Newegg for letting me review this eggcellent mouse

CORSAIR CX-M series CX650M 650W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Modular Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Powerful, Quiet and Cool with nice flat modular cables. 04/18/2016

This review is from: CORSAIR CX-M series CX650M 650W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Modular Power Supply

Pros: CORSAIR CX650M is small,and feels solid and will look good and fit in any case that calls for an atx power supply.

Supplied cables are flat & black.
1 long power cable

1 long non modular cpu connector 4+4 pin

1 long non modular 20/24 pin motherboard cable

2 modular cables each with 2 6+2 pin PCI. The inclusion of these cables tells me the Corsair cx650m can crossfire 2 very high end video cards.

1 modular cable with 3 4pin molex and 1 4 pin floppy connector.
It is the shortest cable and i wont be using this for my setup but it is nice to have just in case you have a older system.

1 modular cable with 2 sata

1 modular cable with 4 sata it is about 6 inches longer than the other sata cable ,Great for dvd to multiple hard drives ,this works for me

The single +12V rail can juice 46 amps and 648 watts!
Over-voltage protection,imo the most important, under-voltage protection, short circuit protection, over power protection, and over temperature protection.And a nice 5 year warranty.

The 120mm fan is temperature controlled.And is only audible at full load.

Cons: The only con is all 6 sata connectors are 90 degrees

Other Thoughts: CORSAIR CX650M is an awesome power supply ,i only feel cool air blowing out of the fan, which is quiet.
And it has already laughed in the face of a lightening strike and no worse than wear.
Of course the true test is how well any power supply holds up and the years, but with a nice 5 year warranty and Corsairs famous support ,there should be no problems.

Thank you Corsair and Newegg for sending this new unit to review.

G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red Switches
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert


This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 MX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: The G.Skill Ripjaws KM780 MX
Mechanical Keyboard is a keyboard that offers a lot for a low price ,excellent bang for the buck. The features are as followed;

-Switchable gaming key caps. These helped me so much for gaming. It offers a cool look and great texture! It also has its own carrying case that attaches to the metal bars on the keyboard.
-Comfortable wrist rest.
-Macro recording. This is very helpful for those games that are repetitive with the keyboard strokes. I used it in fighting games for my combos.
-LED Back-lighting for each key. With the program you can select which keys you want to illuminate . Great for playing fps games,because I can put my wired gaming mouse in the keyboard.
- Extra USB port. This is such an amazing set up because one of my cons would have been that it takes up two USB ports. The extra USB makes up for it. This creates less of a clutter with wires, which I appreciate.
- 5 Media controlling buttons for Stop, Rewind, Play/Pause, Fast forward and mute.
- Dedicated volume key roller to make things loud or soft.

Cons: The cons of this keyboard are few. The software at first is very difficult to use. I had to watch you tube tutorials just to figure out how to turn off lights on keys, make patterns and make macros. The program at first seemed unstable. It kept crashing on me on first use, but after the first time ,and now after 6 weeks of heavy gaming use I have had zero problems, it just works seemlessly.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is a solid item. If you don't care about changing the lighting of the keys or creating patterns , this keyboard is very easy to setup. The button press is so crisp and with a comfortable wrist rest..And tech support from G Skill is excellent, as always.
To sum up my review in one sentence
