Pros: -WASD and 1-6 keys that this keyboard comes with are great for an FPS player
-Spacebar has some rough-type texturing that feels really well for my thumb to rest on
-The Esc, F1-F12 keys are closer to the number keys to make them easier to press without taking my hand completely away from home
-The rough texture of the wrist rest is a huge plus for gaming for a long time
-MX Cherry Reds are simply the best for any FPS games
-Quality of this keyboard overall is high and I'm glad I got this on sale
Cons: For being a refurb, I really can't find anything truly wrong with it.
Other Thoughts: If you don't mind not having RGB LED colors and just having red LEDs, get this. I have been through 2 previous mechanical keyboards (MX black and MX blue) and I very much prefer the red for my gaming needs. I thought it wouldn't make much of a difference going from blue to red but it does.
Also, the other 2 previous weren't as high quality as this. The textured WASD, spacebar and wrist rest are what I can consider a big improvement to overall feel.
This review is from: XTRAC PADS Ripper Mouse Pad
Pros: -Slides really well and grips at the points that are needed to aim better.
-I don't have a lot of space on the table but the extra width compared to a normal mouse pad is very helpful.
Cons: I bought this mouse pad back in 2013 and it was great. Ordered the same exact one on Dec 2014 and this new one has new material that makes it better than the previous.
BUT if you live in a place that gets a lot of humidity, it'll soak up the damp air and even your sweat. It creates a damp top layer, making my mouse stick hard to the surface so the mouse doesn't slide as easy. The old 2013 material never did that, even in very humid conditions. You really have to maintain a dry, room temp if you want to use this current mouse pad. I always have to switch between the 2013 one and the new 2014 one so that the 2014 one can dry. Once dry and night time rolls around, it's back on the table.
Pros: -Great tracking.
-Has almost no accel.
-Heavy by itself without the weights.
Cons: -The hyper-fast scrolling wheel is too sensitive.
-Mine had some blemishes that indicates it was used before (to be expected with refurbs since these were returned for warranty)
Other Thoughts: My biggest complaint is the hyper-fast scroll wheel. When I'm just trying to view and read articles on a website, it would move up or down without me touching the wheel but moving the mouse. I've had a G9, G500, G500s that has the hyper-scroll wheels and those never did it, yet, this one does. I also notice that the hyper-scrolls on those were not as free rolling as this one. If I flick the wheel on both the G502 and G500s, the G502 would keep going for another couple seconds. I'm going to keep using this mouse and just hope the wheel gets a little more stickier and less sensitive.READ FULL REVIEW
