Genius GX-Gaming Gila Black 12 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired 8200 dpi MMO/RTS Professional Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Lots of buttons, I like the positioning and the unique design.
-Color customization for the different profiles (6 profiles in all).
-Macro programming

Cons: The infamous double click that people are having issues with has begun for me around 2-3 weeks ago, and I ordered this mouse in late April. I thought at first maybe it was because of the fact that I carry my mouse around a lot for LAN parties and the buttons had been depressed while in my bag. Apparently that's not the case.

Other Thoughts: For a $80-100 mouse depending on sales, 8 months functionality is not the best life span on a mouse.

Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Price Effective
-Light, if you plan on moving it around some (like I do)
-Lots of drive bays

Cons: -Removable doors are a little 'flimsy'
-Stock fans don't seem very good
-Not friendly with non-modular PSU
-Wiring for hard drives goes to opposite side of all other wiring

Other Thoughts: I bought this tower with my very first build, and it's been able to do everything I've needed so far. The only problems I've ever had with this tower are minor things that, if you're anything like me, might annoy you.

1. I've had this tower for 9 months. Everything has went well, except about 2 months ago, the rear fan starting making this odd humming noise. It seems like the bearing is going out because if I take the door off and slow the fan down after it gets going, the noise stops, and after letting the fan do its thing again, the noise is no longer there. It's just off balance now. Not sure how else to explain this.

2. This being my first build, it was also a budget build, so I went with a non-modular PSU. With tower being the size it is, there's not a lot of places to store the extra cords you're not using. You'll spend a little time working out where to put the spare stuff if you have 2 HDD and a SSD like me.

3. Another thing that has to do with cords. I don't know if other towers are like this, so if they are, ignore my ranting.

This tower comes with some neat little hard drive mounting clamps that basically snap onto the side of the hard drive, then slide into the bay. Really nifty, saves the trouble of using screws to mount your drives. The downside to this is that when you use these mounts, the cables for your drives go to the side of the tower opposite where your other cables are, the backside of the motherboard. Because of this, it takes some patience and, in my case, someone who knows more about cable management thatn me, in order to appropriately position the cables so you can put the door back on properly.

Based off of the problems I've had, I would suggest buying aftermarket fans and getting a modular PSU for this case. The only reason I rate this down at 4 eggs instead of 5 is the one fan beginning to go out. If it weren't for that, the 2 issues I have with the case are more personal than anything, and it would get a full 5.

So, if you're on a budget, and want a simplistic and efficient tower, definitely go with this one. It's well worth it in my opinion.
