Perixx MX-1800 Programmable Gaming Mouse - 7 Programmable Buttons, Changeable Side Wing, Ultra Polling 125-1000HZ - Red

5 out of 5 eggs Well-Behaved, Durable, Excellent for the Price 09/24/2016

This review is from: Perixx MX-1800 Programmable Gaming Mouse - 7 Programmable Buttons, Changeable Side Wing, Ultra Polling 125-1000HZ - Red

Pros: Keeps on working. It's in daily use for all purposes. I've had mine for well over a year with no significant wear and tear. There's just a bit of wear on the top surface where my palm is in constant contact. Smooth fine-grained response at all times. Good fit for my somewhat large hands. Switches working perfectly with good tactile feedback.

There's just nothing wrong at all with this mouse. The braided cover on the wire is a nice touch and doubtless helps reduce fatigue of the copper conductors. It's nice-looking overall but frankly I only care about comfort, which it delivers.

Cons: I have no use for most of the fancy stuff and I find thumb switches mildly annoying. I turned off the lights and disabled the extra thumb switches and the topside buttons. Not a serious "con" really. But you have no choice but to poke around in the software application to accomplish this. Once set it seems to retain its settings forever.

Other Thoughts: I might like it to be just a bit heavier, but light is okay; I'm really only troubled when a mouse is too heavy, such as some of the older wireless mice with two AA batteries.

Unlike my experiences with the typical Microsoft mice and some others, I rarely collide with the thumb switches by accident. In retrospect I could probably have left them active. Sometime I might want to enable one or both for some useful purpose.

Especially considering the much more expensive mice that failed to satisfy (or just failed), this mouse is amazing. It doesn't look or feel cheap, and it has passed the test of time.

ASRock Z97 OC Formula LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Just about every possible option for the tweaker and overclocker.

There's really nothing I don't like about this motherboard.

Cons: After almost exactly one year of use, the USB 3.0 hardware died an ugly death on this motherboard. The mobo remains fully functional in all other respects. It is not a software issue. It is a hardware failure which happened very suddenly. Since the failure, attempts to use the 3.0 connections (any of them front or back) got extremely slow performance (much slower than 2.0) followed by a likely system crash. My only recourse was to disable the hardware in Device Manager and buy a PCIe USB3 interface card.

Other Thoughts: Looks good too.

I had a hard choice to make. I boiled down my options to the ASUS Z97 Deluxe; and this board as a lower-cost but still feature-loaded alternative.

Cost-wise I just could not quite justify the ASUS board for this build.

I'm very pleased with the choice I made. It seems to deliver the better bang per hard-earned buck; and if there's a performance difference it's probably slight.
