Pros: Quite comfortable.
Back + Forward thumb buttons that aren't too easy to press, but not to hard to press ether..
Scroll wheel has good amount of resistance.
Cons: Laser is in an odd position.
Other Thoughts: The laser isn't in the center of the mouse, so at first it feels a little odd. Ive gotten used to it though within a day.
Really that is like any mouse. You get so used to your old one, it breaks so you get a new one. It feels a bit strange at first, but you eventually get used to it. That cycle will repeat again when your new one breaks in a couple of years.
Pros: Lots of room to work, able to fit anything I would ever want in it.
Great Airflow design - gotta love how every fan mount is 140 or 120mm, perfect if you have spare 120s laying around.
Cable management is just about as perfect as you can get.
Looks great! The color is that perfect dark but not pitch black color.
That little ~6inch extension cable for the CPU pin is great, The Corsair TX650 could /just/ reach the Mobo, but that extension makes it much easier.
Cons: Might be too big for some people, easily dwarves my case, so make sure you have the room wherever you will put it.
Paint job is kinda cheap. This may be caused by my next con, but a bit of one corner of the side panel's paint chipped off.
The side panels are a little difficult to remove. The mechanism seems fine, its just it needs a bit more tug, then I am used to. It also not the easiest to put back on.
The hotswap bay is a bit harder to cable to then I would have liked. It requires a Molex rather then SATA which makes a bit inconvenient since otherwise you would only need 1 molex cable for the whole thing (fan hub) I would have liked if the connection was like the LED in the back since that is a SATA connection on a little cable.
Other Thoughts: I used this for my friends new computer and it looks great, it was great to work in. The LED button to illuminate the back is a godsend! Specially since this thing is too big and heavy to easily move around.
I love how all the fan mounts are 140/120mm since I had 2 spare 120s laying around.
If I were to suggest 3 things, it would be:
1) Move the top 140mm fan that comes with the thing to the front. I personally prefer more intake then outtake which the default setup does not have.
2) Get a modular power supply... Even with all the extra room to hide things (and believe me there is plenty) It might make it easier to plan the route the cables will take. If you like my friend do still have an octopus, don't worry it's still easy to work with.
3) Use twist ties not zip ties... We decided to move the fan to the front and it was quite difficult to cut one tie, so save yourself a future headache.
Pros: Cheap, SATA, Matches the 2 cases I got this for.
Cons: One got past QC that shouldn't have.
Other Thoughts: Ive owned one for quite a while now, I know a lot of people who use the same exact drive. We all use it cause its a good cheap drive.
However for the latest build for a good friend of mine we ran into a dud and couldn't install windows with it. No biggie, In the morning he will just be borrow mine, and we will contact Newegg for about a replacement.
It has a good track record of the ~20 Ive seen and this was the only dud.
