Pros: Gold plated
Short cable (longer cables, especially cheap ones, lose more power over the length)
Snug connector doesn't fall out
Cons: Short cable, obviously unsuitable for those who need a longer cable
Snug connector is great for me, keeps the thing firmly in there, others may not like it
Other Thoughts: I never feel like the connector is too snug or tight, but it does require a good push and a good tug to insert and remove it.
All in all, it was perfect for my personal usage. If you want a connector that doesn't fall out, don't need/want a long cable, you'll not find a better cable. Especially cheap considering it has gold plating and ferrite. It should go without saying that if you want a long cable or a less firm connection, you shouldn't purchase this.
This review is from: GIGABYTE GM-M6800 Noble Black 1 x Wheel USB Optical 1600 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Large, yet fits perfectly into the right hand, giving a great precise feel.
Two very distinct side buttons. Too many buttons annoys me, two is plenty.
Dimpled scroll wheel is very satisfying to use.
Lasted two years of daily, very very heavy use.
Cons: Relatively low DPI compared to modern high performance mice.
Friend broke my scroll wheel, now I have to buy a new one :( Might upgrade to a higher tier Gigabyte mouse.
Other Thoughts: If you want a cheap, simple, comfortable mouse, you're on the right page. After using this mouse for so long, no other feels quite the same, none have fit my hand quite the way this one does.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech F310 (940-000110) Gamepad
Pros: Xinput (XBOX) compatible while being Dualshock (PS3) in style
Very comfortable grip for medium hands, not too small like Sony and Nintendo tend to make, and not massive like Microsoft tends to make; Just right.
Very solid build quality, I'm fairly clumsy and not the most gentle person, and it has lasted me faithfully for quite some time.
Works in Windows and Linux out of the box, no driver nonsense required.
Mode button swaps left analog and D-Pad inputs for more comfortable control in some games.
Cons: Analog sticks have an inner deadzone, meaning it doesn't recognize input until you tilt it slightly further from center.
Very loud and clicky, though this can be a pro for people who want very tactile and audible feedback.
D-Pad is a single piece, I prefer individual buttons. Again, can be a pro for some.
Triggers have high resistance, requires a firm push, can start to hurt your hands in games that require lots of trigger use or if your hands are already hurting from something else.
Other Thoughts: The only con that isn't a minor personal preference gripe is the analog deadzone.
Conclusion: For the price, this gamepad is the best you're gonna get until you reach the $50+ bracket where Xbox and Playstation gamepads reside. The deadzone makes it unsuitable for competitive play, but if you're planning to regularly play games that require very precise and fast inputs, you'll probably want to shell out a bit more.
If you only play single player games, or only play casually, and don't need a wireless pad, you simply can't go wrong with this thing.
