This review is from: RAZER Imperator Black 7 Buttons USB Wired Laser 5600 dpi Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
Pros: Bought this as a gift for a friend with larger hands who was using a Deathadder that was reaching the end if its lifespan (5+ years). By all practical accounts he loved it and couldn't be happier: it was extremely accurate, fit well in his hands, and had great customization options. That is, until...
Cons: The left click suddenly stopped auto-firing when being held down, and then later gave out completely. The RMA was conducted through Razer, and there weren't any hangups in the process, but it was overall very slow and in the end they replaced his product with a refurbished one. Not really too happy about that...
Other Thoughts: Both my friend and I have been using Deathadders for ages and overall really like the style and precision of Razer's products, but this whole experience with the suddenly broken left click and slow RMA has been somewhat disenchanting...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-750 750W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
Pros: Does what it's supposed to. I haven't noticed any real effects of the whole bronze rating, but I got it during one of New Egg's deals and figured why not.
Cons: It only has two rails of molex connectors, but since most things are now powered by SATA style ports this shouldn't be much of an issue other than case fans.
Other Thoughts: Kinda cool looking, too. Just wish it came in blue to match case lighting.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I was a bit wary of ASRock as I'd never heard of them before and their website seems a bit thrown together, but this motherboard delivers. Key components are labeled with stick-on labels and it just looks powerful. Additionally it comes with a 2 additional usb 3.0 ports that can be mounted either in the front or back of the case with minimal effort. Nice bios, too.
Cons: The website is kinda hard to navigate, and I'm not sure how often they update with new drivers. Additionally, and I think this might be microsoft's fault, I had a lot of trouble getting the mouse and keyboard working in the USB2.0 ports when I first installed Windows 7 pro (legit). I had to restart 2 or 3 times and wait before they were recognized, but they worked fine in the bios.
Other Thoughts: I know it's hard to get away from heavy hitters like ASUS or MSI, but these guys are definitely on the right track. Give 'em a shot.READ FULL REVIEW
