WD BLACK SERIES WD3200BEKX 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: These have been a great drive (see previous review)

Cons: Out of the last 12 or so of these 5 have been DOA. Be sure to test them as soon as they arrive. NewEgg must have received a bad batch.

Other Thoughts: The ones that arrive and work continue to run great.

WD BLACK SERIES WD5000BPKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: We have a handful of these drives. When they get past the first hour they work great and seem to be lasting.

Cons: About 40% are DOA for whatever reason. Problem is we were keeping these as spares and they didn't get tested when they arrived. What a surprise when you put a brand new drive in a machine and all you hear is the disk grinding.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to test these when they arrive.

SteelSeries 62250 SENSEI Wireless Professional Laser Gaming Mouse

4 out of 5 eggs Pretty slick mouse! 07/10/2014

This review is from: SteelSeries 62250 SENSEI Wireless Professional Laser Gaming Mouse

Pros: The Sensei Wireless Laser Mouse comes in a box that includes the Mouse, Charging Base, USB cable, a notice page, a Quick start manual and a sticker. The mouse its self is bigger than the Logitech Laser mouse I normally use but still fits well in my hand. The mouse measures 5” long by 2.5” wide and can be used by right or left hand users. The Sensei mouse is plug and play and does not require any additional software to use as a mouse, however if you want to take advantage of the additional programmable buttons, mouse sensitivity or customize the color you need to download the Steelseries engine 3 software (Version 3.2.4 when I tested). There are 3 locations that have customizable color (the base unit, the scroll wheel, and the logo) all or none of which can be set as the battery indicator, solid color, or breathing style color.
The charging base has its own light bar which can also be customized with the Steelseries software and just placing the mouse on this unit starts the charging process. Quick and painless.
I typically have my mice set on a very high sensitivity. This mouse can go beyond anything I would ever want to use in a realistic environment. I like that I have this option though.
The programmable buttons can be set to do different tasks as you would expect, They can also be set to run keystroke macros so if you have a certain combination you like to use in a game all you need to do is hit a button.

Cons: The Battery life, I don’t know about you but going from a mouse that I change a batteries once every 3-5 months to this mouse which is good for 24hrs of usage (what is advertised) is a bit of a letdown. It is probably due to the eye candy lights rather than any functional process draining the power. (Note: All lights can be turned off with the Steelseries engine 3 software).
Possible connection issues – I found when disconnecting the base from the USB and reconnecting I end up having to turn off the mouse and turn it back on again. This is also noted in the “notice page” listed above. This seems like a flaw that should be remedied as it is quite an expensive mouse to have this kind of issue. The mouse runs very smooth one everything is synced up again.
The charging station is slightly bigger than the footprint of the mouse. If you have limited desk space it may become a nuisance though you can charge the mouse directly from the USB cable.
I found the buttons near my thumb were in a great location though the buttons on the opposite side of the mouse may be a little too easy to press by accident and will probably just disable these in the future.

Other Thoughts: The Steelseries software comes with a cloud backup option so you can back up all your custom settings to the cloud.
It would be really cool if you could setup a multi-color “breath” option or cycle through colors randomly. It would also be nice if you could have the color revert to a battery indicator when the battery drops below a certain percentage. Just an idea.
As always I will report any future issues of features I may come across with more use.
