This review is from: Logitech G9x Black Two modes scroll USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Responsive, customizable, comfortable, and contains weights to be as heavy or light as you want it. I personally prefer a light mouse so it doesn't feel like a burden moving it anywhere, and without the weights it is incredibly light.
Cons: The moment this cord gets tangled, it begins to separate, bunch up, and constrain the wiring until it won't function any more. It's completely unreliable and after spending this much money I've gone out and bought a $20 mouse. I'm extremely disappointed in how quickly this thing died for its price. It's like a woven mesh so it really cuts the mouse into being inoperable.
Other Thoughts: I completely understand the practical use for a protective mesh around the cord, and trust me I loved the idea when I first bought it. Unfortunately after using it rather often it defeated the very purpose it was trying to make. I would love this product so much more if they would get rid of this "protective" wiring.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal LapAir Laptop Cooling Pad with Comfy Sponge Mat, Up to 17"
Pros: It's on my lap right now (as it has been for over a year) with a 17.3" laptop. It's comfortable, quiet, and there's unbelievable improvements in how it prevents the laptop from getting hot. Even if the fan isn't running, it still keeps my vents open and flows air through beautifully. When playing a game that sucks the power out of my laptop like Guild Wars 2, the difference between the fan on and off are remarkably. My hands start to burn when the fan is off. Plug the fan in and I can go for hours without discomfort. This isn't just some piece of plastic, it's an investment that could keep all your computer parts safe and potentially double the life of your laptop. And even if you don't play intensive games, wouldn't it be nice to have a laptop you could put on your lap, especially one this size? The fans are also really quiet. You can hear it lightly, but not when you got music playing.
Cons: The only con is that you'll need to purchase a laptop bookbag. And quite honestly, if you're already carrying around a laptop that's a good 17", you should probably be doing that any ways. Be sure to get a bag with depth, it is about the same size as my laptop in terms of length x width x depth, so you figure you'll want one that looks like it could fit two laptops. I know it sounds huge but it isn't at all and it's very lightweight. It's solid plastic so it's not going to crush or compact but you need space for it.
Other Thoughts: This thing is second nature to me. I keep it on my bed with no problems, on the couch, tables, and it's elevated enough that I know that if someone spills a drink on the table, the laptop is elevated high enough not to be affected. If it's on a flat surface, it's also ergonomic to make your laptop feel a little more elevated for your hands. So even if you play on a flat surface, it still has a great deal of advantages. As the title says, I take it everywhere because it's so incredibly useful.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs games (SWTOR highest settings, etc.) BEAUTIFULLY, has minimal power consumption, amazing video card, great processor, plenty of RAM, the speakers are UNBELIEVABLE, the light-up keys are perfect at night. You can charge your phone without turning on the laptop with the single always-on USB port, the screen is beautiful, the rippled contours for your wrists are low and relaxing, and the quick buttons on top are incredibly useful. The keys are so comfortable and lowly engraved that it's a breeze and requires little to no strain. I've built 15 computers and I have loathed laptops for years as worthless low-upgrade junk. This is not a laptop. This is a beast on wheels. Not only would I buy it again but I would tell every friend to ignore every laptop on the market and put this one first and foremost. This machine is worth so much more than its cost and I've actually preferred it in gaming over my own machines. Buy it, buy it now.
Cons: Extremely minor things: would rather have the USB Sleep and Charge port farther away from the regular one, strange position to be where it is. Any laptop this powerful overheats, but buy a 4-star cooling pad. For high-intensity video games, your left hand might feel hot so I recommend buying a G13 logitech game pad just to keep your hands off the machine (saves on key repairs from laptops, as I've endured in the past). Also the power supply is HUGE and the size of a brick or two bricks. That thing will get insanely hot so I recommend keeping it off of a rug when possible. You don't want it on your lap, it will likely burn you. Also it makes smaller laptop backpacks make it impossible to carry the thing around. Buy a big laptop bag. I bought one on here and had to buy a whole new one because it wouldn't fit with my standard cooling pad. Very frustrating.
Other Thoughts: So worth it. Buy it. Buy it buy it buy it. Buy a big laptop backpack to store all of your accessories and cooling pad and hold your power supply and you'll be good. Totally recommend the Cooler Master NotePal, the Logitech G9x mouse, and the G13 Logitech gamepad. The colors all match the machine in addition to their incredibly awesome 5-stars to date.READ FULL REVIEW
