This review is from: Logitech G300 Black/Gray 9 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2500 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Nice mouse, has a good feel, changes pretty colors, cord so you're not dealing with battery nonsense issues and the like. Use it for a lot of shooters.
Cons: Main problem - Mouse was great when I got it and served me faithfully for about 15 months. Unfortunately at 15 months the right mouse button is starting to lose its usefulness, and unless there is a toggle aim option in a game becomes totally useless for FPS's.
For a $37 mouse (when I bought it), or $30 (when I posted this) or a mouse that calls itself a gaming mouse I would expect a better lifetime, but I'm also a bit of a stingy old man, so take that into consideration.
Other Thoughts: Noteworthy but problably not as useful to most of you - personally my hands have seen some abuse over the years, too much boxing and not enough heat in my house makes me a bit arthritic. Due to the narrow shape of the mouse this can be somewhat painful as I bend my hand around to cradle it between thumb and pinky. Didn't factor this into the score since I doubt anyone will care about this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The card itself has worked fine for the entire time I've had it. It has been able to play Crysis on low detail with getting glitchy on me.
Cons: Fan slowly died over three months. I tried using an air compressor to blow it out and that didn't help, I bought an additional piece of hardware to blow fresh air in from the slot below and that didn't help, after it took on the sound of a dentists drill I eventually shelled out 40$ for a zalman fan to put on it. (I know it wasn't worth that much, I can now put the zalman fan on my next card too so calm down). Since then it's been fine
Other Thoughts: Be prepared to buy another fan.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN VF700-CU 2 Ball VGA Cooler
Pros: This is first fan I've ever installed and it was incredibly easy.
The idle temperature for my geforce 7600 gs dropped by 20 degrees F' while idle, and has dropped 60-80' F while gaming.
Good looks, made of 100% copper (2nd best thermal conductivity of all elements), and amazing results.
Cons: Very large, it almost doesn't let me have a card in my 2nd PCIE slot.
Other Thoughts: Takes some time to get a consistent temperature reading from it. Some assembly required.READ FULL REVIEW
