Pros: - Nice, comfortable side matte gripping, smooth matte top.
-Buttons in easy to reach places (not including G11, the second button behind the mouse, but that's for profile switching and not used on the fly)
-Weighted nicely and glides well on my Dolica pad.
-Triple, multi-color LED indicated on the front left side is easy to see and not obscured by the hand while playing. (Doubles as a quick battery indicator if a button is set to display, will flash green/orange/red with 1-3 triangles)
-Thumb buttons are placed well, allows me to rest my thumb between all 4, the front of my thumb can easily roll between the top and bottom fore buttons, and the knuckle of my thumb can also easily shift between the rear two with only a slight movement.
-The extra buttons in the primary click area are placed well too. The angling of each allows them to be used comfortably without having to claw your finger to push straight down on the button.
-Cable plugs in and pulls out easily but stays in place well while moving the mouse around.
Cons: -The two back thumb buttons feel a bit squishy, in contrast to the front two which make a noticeable click feeling.
-Mouse wheel could be a little stiffer, it rolls somewhat easily while in its controlled scroll state, but I've noticed this with the Logitech M705 too.
Other Thoughts: -Inclusion of rechargeable battery is a nice touch.
-Could have made the side grip finish rubbery instead of a hard plastic one.
This review is from: Logitech M705 Black 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Marathon Mouse
Pros: -Side button are in comfortable position for use with thumb.
-Scroll wheel click/glide on the fly switching is nice and can be pushed with the bottom of the knuckle of your middle finger quite easily.
-Long battery life, its been several hours of nearly every day gaming for almost a year and I still have just under half. (I would definitely assume I use it more than 'average')
-All buttons still in working order and laser tracks well over every surface I've tried so far, including bed sheets, clothing, wood grain desk, white paper, and black cloth mouse pad.
Cons: -Laser set off to right of center, can unintentionally cause extra movement if your hand rotates slightly, or less.
-Scroll mode button feels cheap, but the simple click works better than a switch.
-2AA batteries weight the back of the mouse down while the front is very light in comparison, leaving a greater chance for uneven movement.
-Scroll wheel can be over sensitive while trying to click, causing you to scroll up or down a line.
-Left/Right click on scroll wheel has quite a bit of room between them and makes the scroll wheel feel a little loose.
-Application switcher gets pressed accidentally all the time, sits at bottom of thumb rest and can be pressed somewhat easily if you have average width or larger thumbs and are squeezing the mouse for a tighter control.
Other Thoughts: -Mid-grade DPI, not recommended to anything above a casual gamer.
-Can never seem to get sensitivity/acceleration settings right.
-Mouse 4/5 will ALWAYS act as forward/backward, even if set as a generic button or to perform another action.
At $45, or even $50, this mouse is a good portable option for its price considering the durability and endurance. For anything above a casual gamer (shooters especially) I would recommend spending the extra instead and getting a G700. At $100 its double the price but features a rechargeable battery (useful for a gamer), higher max dpi, a centered laser, the ability to be used wirelessly or through an attachable wired connection which is also the battery charging cable, and a few extra buttons without adding too many.
This review is from: ASUS VW193DR Black 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 50000 :1 (ASCR)
Pros: Cheap, looks good for an office monitor. Base is a durable interlock design and does not come apart easily; is also sturdy and I had no rocking issues.
Cons: Only a VGA input, image looked bleached and blurry no matter what I did with the settings.
Cost me 1/3 of what I paid for the monitor to send it back, original price was $94.99, restock fee was $15, and shipping it back cost me $21.
Other Thoughts: The screen seems kind of small due to the thick monitor border around it, but its fairly light weight for its size. Unless all you need is a VGA input, I would recommend looking for another monitor that has others as well.READ FULL REVIEW
