Pros: Easy switching of resolution on the fly
Easy setup of profiles that can be stored in on-board memory or the PC
Lots of buttons
Up to six profiles can be stored on the mouse itself

Cons: Sometimes the mouse decides it doesn't feel like tracking properly, even on a mousepad. It's infuriating to be using it and suddenly the pointer heads off on its own little journey.
Occasionally the new profile settings won't stick, which indicates something in the backend of the software has locked up and needs a hard kill/restart.
The battery life is middling, even on power saver settings, and the cord itself is stiff enough that the resistance is a bother.
The mouse requires its own special dedicated receiver that costs $15 to replace and will not interface with any other device. This is supposedly to "improve latency", but I certainly have never seen this latency they talk about with my other wireless stuff, all of which is on the same receiver.

Other Thoughts: At first I was very fond of the mouse, but its constant niggling list of problems has turned me off of Logitech mice. Perhaps another company would better suit your buying needs, as this one seems to build substandard products that don't quite work as advertised.

1 out of 5 eggs Never loud unless it's screaming static. 02/06/2016

This review is from: USB External 7.1 Channel 3D Virtual Audio Sound Card Adapter PC

Pros: - Cheap
- Can do what it's supposed to temporarily

Cons: - Seller does not include a third when two are ordered as advertised.
- Works fine for a while, then decides it doesn't want to work anymore and starts screaming static at me until it's removed from the port or the audio is turned off.

Other Thoughts: As its main flaw defeats its main purpose, I cannot recommend this product.

ZALMAN CNPS10X OPTIMA 120mm FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) Shark's Fin Blade CPU Cooler (LGA 2011 version)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Reasonably cheap, quieter than the stock cooler while it lasted, cooled better than the stock cooler. Easy to replace the fan with the included clips.

Cons: The fan began making faint noise after about a month, then ratcheted it up to a steady and annoying drone over the course of the next month. Replaced the fan with a 10-year-old Sunbeam fan, instant improvement. For a product whose main draw is the quietness of its fan, this was very disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Not a terrible cooler, but have a backup fan ready to go, or go with another brand with better fan reliability.
