Pros: This review is just of the MSI RMA dept... which is dreadful. I bought a last gen card which worked great for a while then died... this is its story.
Cons: Nov 2013, my AMD gaming card starts dropping signal via displayport, a week later, it will no longer connect via displayport. I test the monitor with my laptop, it works --> RMA. Card is gone two weeks. A new card arrives. Card overheats and begins artifacting. Check the clock speeds (I don't overclock, but wanted to make sure). Clock speeds are at manufacturer spec. Try firing up BF4 again, after reinstalling drivers, card artifacts, reboots. Computer no longer boots with this card installed. --> RMA. 3 weeks later (today), new card arrives. Reinstall drivers. Fire up battlefield, game crashes and computer locks up entirely as soon as 3d rendering begins. Uninstall newest beta, run driver sweep, reinstall current offical driver. Try world of warcraft, game crashes at start screen, as soon as 3d rendering starts. Test another AMD card in rig, works. Install nvidia card in rig, works. Install RMA replacement card in a friend's rig, fails to render 3d. Long story short, 3 RMA cards in less than 3 months. ARE YOU SERIOUS! I'm not saying don't buy AMD cards, but PLEASE get another brand. If your card goes bottom up and you bought an MSI card, just throw it in the garbage.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Razer Naga 2014 MMO Gaming Mouse
Pros: -Has a million buttons.
-Lighting is fun
-Side clicking scroll wheel
-FINALLY a comfortable razer NAGA for large hands!
-Synapse works really nicely with this mouse, epic customizability
-Works for FPS games pretty darn nicely.
Cons: -No wireless version? If you're into that sort of thing
-Lightning is only green
Other Thoughts: Finally. A comfortable razer mouse for large handed people besides the basic death adder. I know many die-hards hate the mechanical side buttons, but I really like them. I don't have accidental key presses. Which is great. The real reasons I LOVE this mouse is the comfortability. All the other features are adequate for me. Comfort is what sold it. I honestly had planned to buy a logitech mouse for FPS and use this for MMOs. After getting this, I've found I still melt face in BF4. Sniper, support, doesn't matter. I play at least as well on this mouse as my old logitech gaming mice. The MMO functions on here need no explanation as they're kinda a given, of course it is boss for MMO play. Only thing I would like to see is a EPIC naga 2014 version with the light changing options and wireless. If they make it, I would dig into my pockets and shell out dollars for that too. But this mouse seems to be the best option at this time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Razer Ouroboros Ambidextrous PC Gaming Mouse
-Looks seriously awesome
-Packaging is fantastic and fun to open
-Adjustments don't fix poor ergonomics
-Software is glitchy with this mouse
-Side DPI buttons aren't usable
Side plates fit loose and shifty leading to poor grip
Other Thoughts: I wanted to like this mouse. The problem is I can't really find a lot of nice things to say about it. It doesn't solve any real problems. For me, I could not find a adjustment setting to fit my hand. I have somewhat large hands. With the back in the front seated position the meat of my thumb dragged on my mouse pad. With it all the way back, the large gap was uncomfortable and the palm grip is wobbly. The other problem is the flimsy side panels. Fact: they're just flimsy. The side DPI adjustments are too firm to be useful even when only using one at a time. The best way to put it is the mouse feels like playing with a pile of jenga blocks with a mouse sensor installed. I think this mouse would be like an $80 mouse given its feature set and quality. It does look very cool. I'm not just razer hatin' because I have a razer anansi keyboard which is... fantastic and I switched the ouroboros for a naga 2014 (I didn't like the 2012 simply because it did not fit my hand). All in all, skip this product. Don't say you weren't warned. This product is too flimsy and uncomfortable to be a good FPS mouse, and buttons are not relevant and plentiful enough for MMO. If you have small hands or use a tall claw grip you might like this mouse. I do think there are other better products for the money however. Like the razer mamba if you can't live without wireless, or the naga '14 if you need buttons.READ FULL REVIEW
